Bionic Woman, Chuck Get NBC's Thumbs-up
NBC has issued a vote of confidence to all four of its freshman series by ordering three more scripts for the buzzworthy Chuck and Bionic Woman as well as the less-warmly received Life and Journeyman, Variety reports.
Typically, though never guaranteed, additional-script requests are seen as a precursor to a full-season nod. But realistically, who could say no to Yvonne Strahovski?!

Btw, just checked out the end of BW ep 1. Yup they show him trekking through snowy mountains or something at the end.
Still not sure how he actually got out of extremely secure triple secret prison.
NBC is rebooting their Bionic Woman reboot.
The Peacock's sickly remake which has lost nearly 50% of its audience since debuting last month, will be staging a big two part episode in December or January that will serve as the show's unofficial relaunch.
I hear NBC will give the episodes a HUGE promotional push in the hopes of luring back some of those lapsed viewers and maybe even recruiting some new ones.
The two episode event will be the first major test for Bionic's new show runner Jason Cahill.
And for those keeping track of all the backstage upheavals at home with Cahill factored in the total number of show runners that have passed through the Bionic executive suite since this summer comes to... 645
The pilot has a lot more in common, visually and conceptually, with "24" or "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" than it does with the horrible "Six Million Dollar Man." concept.
"We are not trying to chase nostalgia. We are attempting to pull off an excavation-and-salvage project similar to Sci Fi Channel's "Battlestar Galactica," another dated, awful TV franchise from the 1970s."
?I, very carefully, mostly as a function of my own laziness, chose not to look at anything regarding the original (Battlestar Galactica). I used the same approach on "Hercules" . . . and the upshot was when, at story meetings, everyone would sit around talking about Narcissus and Achilles, and I would go....."I don't know what any of you guys are talking about. You have to make this make sense to me."
