Fans of Journeyman
might have done much to save the short-lived show, but like other one-season wonders, the show remains six feet under. The creator of the show, Kevin Falls, has expressed his sincere gratitude and appreciation for all the support the fans have given him and the rest of production. Now, Falls is ready to move on and take on another FOX project, this time with a lighter and more comedic tone. FOX has recently given a green light for Falls to recreate the Argentinean telenovela Lalola.
The new FOX series is tentatively titled Eva Adams
, and will be an hour-long show focusing on a womanizer who suddenly turns into a woman and thus learns how to deal with the same kind of treatment that he used to give back in the days when he was still a man. The story will be set in the world of sports and fashion.
Sony Pictures TV will be producing the series based on the Dori Media International format, and the show is written and executively produced by Kevin Falls and is also executively produced by Jamie Tarses.
The Dori Media Group introduced the format in fall, describing it as a "new type of telenovela," but scrapping out the usual rags to riches love story and having something more contemporary and fast-paced instead.
Originally airing on Argentina’s America TV, Lalola
is also being locally adapted for TV in the Philippines.
FOX is also gearing up for new shows such as Sam Baum’s Lie to Me
, which stars Tim Roth, Paul Attanasio’s Courtroom K
, Boldly Going Nowhere
, Wilmer Valderrama’s The Emancipation of Ernesto
and Shaun Cassidy’s Inseperable.
Meanwhile, fans can still catch some of the stars of Journeyman
as they take on other endeavors. In fact, we recently reported
that Kevin McKidd
, who played the lead role on Journeyman
, is set to play military doctor Major Owen Hunt on Grey’s Anatomy
. His character might actually develop into a love interest for Sandra Oh
’s character, Cristina Yang.
returns to ABC on Thursday, September 25 with a two-hour season premiere at 9pm.
