From LA Examiner: 'Parks & Rec' Plans Post-Harvest Festival; Kristoffer Polaha Hired!; Food Network Introduces Ice As Art; TNT Anounces Summer Dates

"PaleyFest reveals Pawnee’s future bright; Parks and Rec’s future still unknown"

Mike Schur made it a point earlier tonight at the Paley Center for Media's 2011 PaleyFest panel for his hit NBC sitcom, Parks and Recreation, to say that he and the other producers are all very optimistic that the series will get a fourth season but that officially, there was still no word from NBC, nor should we really expect one now.

"Kristoffer Polaha joins Sarah Michelle Geller in CBS Ringer"

LA TV Insider Examiner doesn't usually report on pilot season until all of the countless scripts that have been green lit have been produced and the various networks have made their decisions on what they think deserves more of a chance. There is no reason to get too attached if it's just going to go nowhere, right? After all, that leads to a lot of stress eating! At least around these parts. But LA TV Insider Examiner has had our eye on Kristoffer Polaha for a long, long time and promised back when his holding deal with CBS was announced that we would continue to update all of you on new developments. And today there is a big one! He has found his new CBS show and joined the pilot of Ringer, which also stars Sarah Michelle Geller... [MORE]
