Fest plays ‘Heroes’

NBC show, 'Nip/Tuck' make Paley event

Series creator Tim Kring and 11 cast members of NBC’s first-year hit “Heroes” appeared at the Museum of Television & Radio’s Paley Festival on Series creator Tim Kring and 11 cast members of NBC’s first-year hit “Heroes” appeared at the Museum of Television & Radio’s Paley Festival on Saturday, playing to an overflow crowd at the Directors Guild of America.

With several characters having died on the comicbook fantasy, the actors joked during the event about their potential mortality. “It’s turned into ‘Survivor,’ ” said Adrian Pasdar, who plays a politician withextraordinary powers.

Asked the inevitable question about future casualties within the show, Greg Grunberg quipped about the producer, “Tim survives.”

Meanwhile, on Thursday night, “Nip/Tuck’s” staff scrubbed in at the DGA.

The show has never cowered from its explicit language, far-fetched storylines and explicit sex scenes.

It’s all part of the guilty-pleasure charm of the show, said exec producer-creator Ryan Murphy.

Viewers obviously agree. The series is the most-watched scripted basic cable series of all time.

More than anyone else, star Julian McMahon seemed to revel in the ridiculous.

“You can’t go too over in the top in our show,” he said. “The pilot gave us license to whatever we wanted to do.”
