Behind-The-Scenes Of Venice Season Four Stunt! Watch As Gina is Run-Down By Lara!



Wally Crowder, the stunt coordinator on the hit Showtime  series, Dexter, joined the cast and crew of Crystal Chappell’s Venice the Series to choreograph the key stunt in Venice season four that just was witnessed by subscribers of the series in episode six that was premiered this past Wednesday.  Recruited to Venice, by The Bold and the Beautiful’s Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), it was Crowder’s job to bring to life the game-changing car incident at the end of the episode where Chappell’s Gina is run down in a car driven by Nadia Bjorlin’s, Lara!

What is so significant in the story are a few things:  Lara had been drinking, she was driving a rental car (not her own as she stated during the episode),  and  as far as we know leading in to episode seven, she has fled the scene of the accident which now becomes a hit and run crime scene!

Venice season four is crafting a traditional soap love story with the team of characters seemingly scheming to keep Gina and her beloved Ani (Jessica Leccia) from getting together!  And, now we have this added to the mix .. the hit and run!  Will it ultimately bring together Gina and Ani once and for all, and against all odds of everyone and everything in the universe conspiring to keep them apart?

As a web extra, Venice the Series has released this very interesting behind the scenes look at how Crowder and the Venice crew,brought the scripted elements together to make the hit and run look authentic!  Watch it after the jump! Let us know what you thought of the key scene! Did you like the “making of” style video?  Are you enjoying Venice season four?  Share your thoughts below!

Very interesting to see how it is choreographed and put together. Well done by all and ery realistic. It looks like they are very professional and the show looks great!


The stunt info is neat. But I am writing about how I feel about Season 4 so far. The whole Jake thing is just nauseating and very unappealing to CC & JL’s Otalia fans. Its depressing. I following some fan forums and ppl are just disgusted and throwing in the towel on the series because Gina & Ani are being kept apart way too long…with lots of sideshows going on like the ridiculous Owen in Heaven stuff….and now the Jake thing is too much… sad…..


From episode 8 season Four
Although I am not a fan of the “heaven” scene. I did enjoy some of it. I think there was a lot of missed opportunities in this epi. It felt like they were afraid to get too emotional. A little humor to lighten it up after a lot of emotion would be fine. Not to make an attempt to make the majority of it “humorous”. Not my story, but to grab the audience, Gina and Owen saying good bye should have been more emotional. Ani should have been at Gina’s bedside willing her to live. Gina should have seen this on the “tv” even if she did not remember most of it later. The Colonel could have overheard her. The hateful, Logan, had a really good scene as she spoke to/at Ani–some truth being told.

Aunt Jane should have at least asked, “who are you” to Sarah. There could have been a silent moment where someone says, we will explain it all later (which could have happened off screen as when Gina explain her father’s “mess” to Owen).


CC is probably waiting for the last few episodes to emit the emotion. It was just really needed about right at epi 8. It would be good if Season 5 about Gina and Ani being a couple again and showing it as they learn to make their relationship work amid their past hurdles and whatever their current trials are. That would not only be entertaining, but a good story to tell as a couple triumphs

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
