It's Your Friday "Monday Mornings" Round-Up!

Trying to decide if the PR department is oblivious or totally into fan service. ;)


That awesome screencap is Dr. Ty Wilson's page from TNT's Monday Mornings site. Which is now live! Well, technically, it's been live for awhile, but there wasn't much in the way of content that couldn't be found elsewhere on the net. All that has been rectified. There's quite a bit to peruse (I'd recommend checking out the rest of the behind the scenes photos on the site), but zegeekgirl used her capping and coding skills to pull the best photos of Jamie (which we haven't already posted).












Recently, Jamie and Jennifer Finnegan participated in a conference call with members of the media. Last night, Jamie Steinberg, of the Starry Constellation Magazine website, posted a transcript from the conference call. Jamie and Jennifer did a great job of providing in-depth, thoughtful answers and insight into the show and their characters.

If you haven't yet read Dr. Sanjay Gupta's Monday Mornings, maybe a pretty new cover featuring the cast will entice you to do so? Amazon.com has announced the novel will be released in paperback on January 22nd. Or you may just want to pick up a second copy with the new and improved cover art. If your into buying second copies of stuff you already have. Not that I know anything about that personally.

We've mentioned a few premiere dates for Monday Mornings outside of the U.S. previously, but our plan is to post a complete list prior to the February 4 debut here in the states. In some cases, there are premiere dates, but no times yet with some broadcast announcements. And, sadly, there is still no word on MM airing in the UK (TNT doesn't have their own outlet there and relies on selling their programming to other networks), but several of their shows do air in the UK and, with the names attached to this project, we're hopeful.

Finally, there is some news that as nothing to do with MM or even Jamie....for the moment...but may be of interest to some. Today, Dragon*Con announced Ioan Gruffudd as a guest for this years convention. While Ioan has a sci-fi connection having appeared in two Fantastic Four films, I can't imagine the idea of a Hornblower reunion hasn't crossed the minds of some D*C folks. And Jamie and Ioan share a convention agent in Erin Grey. So, you never know what might happen. Schedules permitting, of course. I can't stress that last bit enough.

Yeah, that was pretty much my reaction as well.

Was so exhausted last night I came home and crashed. Now, I have the energy for this: *flaaaaaaaaaaaaail*!

A GREAT, insightful interview, though my favorite take-away from that is that I may have to make sure the yellow watch gets an LJ icon all its own. XD

So, that pic of Jamie and Bill D'Elia on set? Once I got past the initial "UNF, hellooo surfer boy" reaction, heh - I did have a moment where I thought to myself "OK, guys, now you will make sure that you crop ALL palm trees out of the shots, yes?" ;) I grew up in the South Bay/Beach Cities area of LA which is where a lot of MM is being shot as far as I can tell. (Most shows are good about this, though they *all* slip eventually. Even the brilliant ones; I caught a palm tree in "Justified" recently and shook my fist at the telly. Hee.)

I'm banking on a couple of UK channels as likely places for MM to land, though anything can happen. Was telling asta77 that hopefully it won't be too long; as far as I can tell, for example, no one has picked up Major Crimes in the UK yet. Most of TNTs shows *are* airing there, though, and given the subject matter, DEK's pedigree and the fact that there are two Brits in the cast, MM's chances are pretty good.

*not getting too worked up over the Dragon*Con part until there is concrete reason to do so*

Thanks you guys for the update and the gorgeouspics!

Those first two pictures.....now I know what I'm doing for the rest of the weekend ;)

Easier said than done.... :P

I love the brown, barren desert hills in the background, of which there are zero of in Kentucky. Happy to see "Justified" referred to as brilliant, which it is.

Speaking of other obsessions, there is a picture of Jamie Bamber and James McAvoy together...does anyone know when that was taken? I'm guessing Band of Brothers days.

Could be the Empire movie awards from a few years ago. I think James won something for 'Wanted' and Jamie presented him the award. James is a huge sci-fi fan and, of course, BSG fan, so he geeked out when "Apollo" presented him with an award. :)

This makes me giddy.

Ok, I was close. He said "CAG", not "Apollo". But here it is: 2009 Empire Awards. :)

I remain hopeful, most of the TNT programmes end up on Sky somewhere - mostly Sky Living if I hear anything I will let you know.

TNT look like they've spent a bit of money on promotion and it's all getting very exciting.

And I just spotted the flip flop picture and am suffering extreme palpitations.
