News Round-up: Cherry, Jonathan Jackson, Greenville, B&B

Marc Cherry signs new deal with ABC
Marc Cherry has sealed a new deal that could keep DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES on the air through 2013. As part of a two-year extension Cherry signed with ABC Studios, Cherry will remain exec producer of "Housewives" for an eighth and ninth season. Whether or not HOUSEWIVES continues until then will now depend on the show's core cast members, who are only committed through the 2010-11 season, the show's seventh.

INTERVIEW: GH's Jonathan Jackson (Lucky)
"Tony and I have had some great scenes that feel like re-establishing something. Again, I did not watch the other versions of Lucky, but for me it’s picking up where I left off ten years ago, but now as an adult. There is a lot of interesting chemistry going on there. Then there is Ethan. I have only had some group scenes with him, and there is a lot of potential for story there…and again, with him being a con man and Lucky being a detective. Lucky is Luke’s son, so he has a dangerous side to him that could potentially take him either way, when it comes to that stuff."
