It's Official! TNT Has Ordered "Monday Mornings" to Series!

Our long international nightmare is over! TNT HAS PICKED UP "MONDAY MORNINGS"!!!!! Details via Deadline:

TNT has greenlit Monday Mornings, a powerful new series from award-winning producer  David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, Chicago Hope) and practicing neurosurgeon and CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, M.D., on whose book the series is based. The medical drama stars Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction), Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2, TNT’s The Company), Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica), Jennifer Finnigan (Better with You), Bill Irwin (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Keong Sim (Glee), Sarayu Rao (Lions for Lambs), and Emily Swallow (TNT’s Southland).

Monday Mornings (formerly known as Chelsea General) is produced by TNT Originals and David E. Kelley Productions. Kelley and Gupta both serve as executive producers. Kelley penned the pilot episode, which was directed and executive-produced by Bill D’Elia (Boston Legal, The West Wing). TNT has ordered a 10-episode first season of Monday Mornings, which is set to premiere in summer 2013. TNT has teamed up with Turner Broadcasting System International, Inc. to produce this global series. The show, which will air on TNT and Turner networks around the world, will be distributed by TBS International outside of the United States and Canada.


Yeah, the Summer 2013 debut sucks, but, hey, think of how many other roles Jamie will be able to play in his downtime from MM. :)

ETA: The Futon Critic has the first photo from Monday Mornings:

I'm imagining some of this going on in the Bamber household.....





As for myself and Jamie's many fans, I'm imagining we're all feeling a bit like this....




GIF Party in Comments! :D

'John Doe' Teaser Poster released

No, we're not quite done with Bamberpalooza Spring 2012 yet ;)  Steve Coates (@wetroads), the screenwriter of Jamie's movie John Doe, tweeted a link to the film's production company website today because they've just released a teaser poster....

FYI, we did ask Steve recently when we might see a teaser trailer, and he said "very soon" - i.e. probably noncommittal because they're still working on post. So hopefully sooner end of soon? (I will say this - it's not like I have any illusions about the type of movie this is or what the tone of the trailer will likely be. I'm pretty open minded about the movie itself. It'd be really nice to see his face at least once in the teaser, though. And not just because it's pretty. He uses it.... to act with. A LOT. And he's rather good at at. ;) )

Jamie Bamber at the 5th Annual George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic

I feel like we're in the midst of Bamberpalooza with all the recent photos and news. Not that I'm complaining! On Twitter last night, Kerry mentioned Jamie had attended a charity golf event yesterday (for non-Twitter folks, you may want to visit her Twitter account to see where that conversation went ;) and shoelesslucy tipped me off that there were photos about.

As always, if unwatermarked copies become available later I'll make the switch.
