More shows look to the future
Now there is talk Ghost Whisperer will take a Desperate-Housewives 5 year leap in its plotlines.
Blame Desperate Housewives for this one? Marc Cherry’s five-year leap has worked so well that there is talk other shows are contemplating similar moves. Specifically Ghost Whisperer and One Tree Hill.
EW.com reports a Ghost Whisperer insider confirms that producers of the CBS drama are now toying with the idea of kicking the new season off five years into the future.
Meanwhile, One Tree Hill, which already leapt ahead four years at the start of season 5, is mulling another flash forward at the onset of season 7 this fall.
Still it will take a brave producer to do a “Dallas dream.” The super-soap erased an entire year of episodes when it decided to bring back Patrick Duffy after bumping off his character Bobby Ewing. When Pam (Victoria Principal) opened up the shower door and found her husband, television history was made.
