TNT greenlights ‘The Librarians’ franchise as a series
Filed Under: Television: The Librarians • Posted on April 21st, 2014 by Megan • No Comments

TNT has greenlit 10 episodes for a series based on The Librarians franchise, slated to air in late 2014. The TV movies told the story of a group of extra special librarians who live beneath the Metropolitan Public Library in New York and safeguard mystical relics from forces of evil by slapping them with outrageous overdue fees. The plot is a messy stew of Indiana Jones, National Treasure, and Hell Boy …but the product is less than the sum of its parts.

Noah Wyle (Falling Skies, ER) will reprise his role as the big cheese librarian and will also executive produce. Rebecca Romijn will play Eve Baird, a sexy counter-terrorism agent who’s in charge of protecting the librarians. Shouldn’t be too hard since she’s fresh off the (canceled) show King & Maxwell, where she played a sexy former secret service agent. Potayto/Potahto. Other cast members include: Christian Kane (Leverage), Lindy Booth (Dawn of the Dead), John Kim (Neighbors), Matt Frewer (Orphan Black, Falling Skies), and John Larroquette (Deception). Also appearing from the movie trilogy will be Bob Newhart (The Big Bang Theory) and Jane Curtin (3rd Rock from the Sun).

TNT Eyes Noah Wyle’s ‘The Librarian’ Series
Filed Under: Uncategorized • Posted on February 21st, 2014 by Holly • No Comments

A long-gestating series offshoot from TNT‘s successful The Librarian original movies is inching closer to a green light as a 10-episode, straight-to-series at TNT. Dean Devlin’s Electric Entertainment, which was behind the three Librarian movies, would be back as producer, partnering with the movies’ star Noah Wyle, who is in early talks to serve as an executive producer as well as reprise his role as Flynn Carsen in several episodes as he has a full-time job on TNT’s hit series Falling Skies. Also eyed to reprise their roles from the movies are Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin. Tentatively titled The Librarians, the proposed series would revolve around a group of younger men and women eager to become Flynn’s successor as the protector of secret artifacts. The green light for the series is cast-contingent, hinging on finding an actress for the lead role of a strong, ass-kicking woman. I hear the character is conceived as British, with actresses like Melissa George and Rhona Mitra as prototypes.

The idea for a Librarian series had been around for a while. It was put on hold by a lengthy WGA arbitration over the credits for the movies, which recently was successfully resolved, clearing the way for a new installment six years after the third and final movie in the franchise, The Librarian: The Curse of the Judas Chalice, aired. Devlin teamed with John Rogers, co-creator of Devlin’s long-running TNT series Leverage, and approached TNT with an outline for a 10-episode series. I hear Rogers has written a two-hour opening episode. With TNT interested, Wyle, who was the heart of the movie franchise, was approached about joining the project. Because of his starring role on Falling Skies, a full-time return was out of the question, with talks focusing on him executive producing and doing multiple episodes. I hear that, if a deal is reached, Wyle would appear in the opening two-hour episode, which will be directed by Devlin, and possibly in the last two episodes, something his schedule on Falling Skies would permit. He also might direct an episode. Filming is tentatively scheduled to begin in April in Oregon, where Electric Entertainment shot Leverage. I hear Devlin and Wyle met with the Governor of Oregon to personally lobby for a tax credit on the project, which they were successful in landing. If everything goes according to plan, I hear The Librarian would air in late 2014, likely in TNT’s popcorn entertainment/adventure Sunday slot where Falling Skies currently airs.
