TV Newsround: Nutter Works His Magic, O’Neill Married Again, Torchwood Talk


David Nutterhas signed on to direct the previously announced pilot for ABC’s Witches Of Eastwick TV show, a light fantasy based on the John Updike novel, and the 1987 movie, about three women who develop supernatural powers after a mysterious man arrives in their their small town.

Nutter, whose big break came directing episodes of The X-Files, has an astonishing pilots record – all 14 he has directed have gone on to be picked up as series. His most recent successes include Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, The Mentalist and Supernatural.

Former Married With Children star Ed O’Neill is, well, getting married with children again, after joining the cast of ABC pilot An American Family.

The show is a documentary-style comedy following three families. O’Neill will play the head of one of them, a 60-year-old man married to woman half his age. It will also feature a more traditional family and a gay couple who have just adopted a baby.

O’Neill’s last regular TV gig was in David Milch ‘s baffling HBO drama John From Cincinnati which was cancelled after a single season in 2007.

Eve Myles, who plays Gwen Cooper in Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood, talked about the show’s upcoming five-episode third season at the New York Comic Con.
