Now this I find interesting!

The news broke a few days ago on Lucy Lawless’ official website. She’s taking on Tanya Turner herself, the super-duper King Kong mega bee-yotchy wife in American network channel ABC’s version of UK’s “Footballer’s Wive$”, as Melanie McFarland of SeattlePi put it.

Personally, I love that character. And I love Zoe Lucker who originally portrayed her. But I’m finding it hard to believe that the US will successfully pull this off. Especially on ABC. Had it been on HBO I would have said “maybe”.

Now, don’t get me wrong! I’m super-excited that Lucy will be heading up a new show and that I, along with all the other Lucites, will get our weekly fix if the show gets off the ground. But until I see it I will try and stay “normal”. Not act out like I did over on Lucy’s yahoo group. Guess I got a little carried away there. Teehee.

A couple of the other characters have been cast and rumors fly around that Bryan Singer might direct the pilot. But more than that we really don’t know at present time. It’s the old “wait and see”-game.
