Bionic Woman (2007) information

Ward Costello and Harve PresnellLast month was a particularly hard one for television lovers. We lost a lot of very talented people during June. Like many of the shows they worked on, there are a lot of talented people that won’t be back in the Fall.

David Carradine, 72, was found dead in his hotel room in Central Thailand. He was there shooting a movie and his June 3rd death is still under investigation. Carradine was born in Hollywood, the son of actor John Carradine, and is related to several other performers that share his last name. His early roles include those on The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, The Virginian, and Wagon Train. In the 1970s, he starred in the series Kung Fu as “Grasshopper” Kwai Chang Caine and it would become his most-successful television role. He was nominated for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe for the show. Carradine returned to the role in a TV movie in 1986, with Brandon Lee playing his son. Then, in the 1990s, he came back to series television in Kung Fu: The Legend Continues and played the grandson of his original character. He appeared in many movies over the years (most notably the Kill Bill movies) and guested on shows like Charmed, Medium, Alias, and Jackie Chan Adventures.

Veterans of Cancelled TV Shows That We Lost in April 2009

Veterans of Cancelled TV Shows That We Lost in April 2009

May 6, 2009
Dan Miller and Nora O'BrienSeveral veterans of cancelled television shows left us in April. Some worked in front of the cameras while others worked behind the scenes. Either way, they contributed to the medium in significant ways. Those that have passed away include Thomas Braden (Eight Is Enough, Crossfire), Dan Miller (The Pat Sajak Show, Miller & Company), Wendy Blair (Three's Company, The Ropers, Three's A Crowd, What A Country, and I Married Dora), Jim Hutchison (Hawaii Five-0, Magnum P.I., and Jake And The Fatman), Marilyn Cooper (Alice, Kate And Allie, Cheers, Law & Order, The Nanny, and Caroline In The City), Kim Weiskopf (One Day At A Time, The Jeffersons, Good Times, What's Happening Now!!, Full House, and Married With Children), Bea Arthur (Maude, The Golden Girls), and Nora O'Brien (Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Kings, The Philanthropist, Parenthood, and Bionic Woman). Here are the details... Thomas Braden passed away on April 3rd. He was 92 years old and died of natural causes at his home in Denver. Braden worked for the CIA until 1954 and then bought a newspaper in Oceanside, CA. He wrote a regular column about his life at home with a wife and eight children. Those columns were later collected in book form and became the basis of ABC's Eight is Enough TV series. He returned to Washington, DC in the 1960s and helped create a political debate radio show. In 1982, he helped to launch CNN's political debate series, Crossfire, with Pat Buchanan. He stayed with the program until 1991 and the show ended in 2005. Braden's wife, Joan, had a varied career that included magazine writer, TV interviewer, public relations officer, and aide to both John F. Kennedy and Nelson A. Rockefeller. She died in 1999. Braden is survived by seven children (Thomas Jr. died in 1999) and numerous grandchildren.

Here's where you'll be able to see a bunch of them like… Bradley Whitford (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), Willie Garson (John from Cincinnati), Jason Gedrick (Murder One), Eric Roberts (Less than Perfect), Chris Parnell (Miss Guided) , Luke Kirby (Tell Me You Love Me), Michael Kenneth Williams (The Kill Point), Ally Walker (Tell Me You Love Me), Philip Baker Hall (The Loop), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Do Not Disturb), Taylor Handley (Hidden Palms), Shiloh Fernandez (Jericho), Tom Everett Scott (Grace Under Fire), Regina King (Leap of Faith), Sarah Wynter (The Dead Zone), Dave Franco (Do Not Disturb), Lucy Hale (Bionic Woman), John Schneider (The Dukes of Hazzard), Donald Sutherland (Commander in Chief), and Blair Underwood (L.A.

This time around, the Emmy winner will both star in and produce a single-camera comedy called Off Duty. In the series pilot, Whitford will play a formerly legendary police detective who ends up causing problems for his new partner, played by Romany Malco (Weeds).
