Sky One high on ‘Love’

British satcaster picks up drama, sitcom at L.A. Screenings

LONDON — British satcaster Sky One has returned from the L.A. Screenings with Lionsgate’s primetime drama “Hidden Palms” as well as new sitcom “Lovespring International,” from Eric McCormack (“Will & Grace”).

Exec produced by “Dawson’s Creek” creator Kevin Williamson and Scott Winant, “Hidden Palms” will launch on the CW this fall as Lionsgate’s first series pickup from a U.S. broadcast network.

Described as “The OC” meets “Desperate Housewives,” drama follows a troubled teenager, played by Taylor Handley (“The OC”), who moves to Palm Springs and begins to uncover all manner of strange goings on.

“Any show whose pilot has a woman paying $10,000 to have her dog deflowered deserves a primetime slot on Sky One,” said Richard Woolfe, the channel’s recently appointed director of programming.

“Lovespring International,” meanwhile, is an improv comedy set at a Beverly Hills dating agency.

Produced by Big Cattle Prods. for cabler Lifetime, series will feature guest appearances from McCormack and his “Will & Grace” co-star Sean Hayes alongside a regular cast of improv vets.

“Lovespring International” will launch on Sky One in the fall, while “Hidden Palms” will launch next spring.
