Here's a piece of news that will make all the "Men in Trees" fans in North America wish you lived somewhere else: According to showrunner Jenny Bicks, the five episodes of the show's first season that ABC decided not to air until fall will be broadcast in some international markets as early as this week. The rest of us will have to wait until late September or early October to see what the folks in Elmo, Alaska, are up to.
But before you North American fans get too upset, here's some other news from Bicks to tide you over:
- Reruns of the show will start airing June 28. ABC plans to show virtually all of the first season, minus an episode here or there.
- The show has hired David Rosenthal, the writer who ran this year's final season of "Gilmore Girls." I suppose your opinion on that will vary depending on how you felt about this season of "Gilmore Girls."
I didn't watch "Men in Trees" in its first season, though I admit you all gave me some convincing reasons to check it out. Maybe I'll give it a shot once the reruns start.
