‘Hollyweird’ changes shape for fall

TV pilot to be recast and reshot

Fox Broadcasting Co. and Studios USA are planning to recast and reshoot the pilot “Hollyweird,” which debuts on Fox this fall. Sources said the series’ stars — Filippo, Melissa George and Bodhi Elfman — will have to re-audition for new roles on the series, whose concept is being tweaked. The drama, which will air Thursdays at 9 p.m., will no longer focus on teens from the Midwest who come to Hollywood. Instead, it will be an ensemble about struggling Los Angeles artists, including a screenwriter. Expect more recasting and reshoots on other pilots at other networks to come.
