JERRY SIGNS ON TO NBC PILOT "ROMEFIRE" (A.K.A. Romeo Fire)

3/14/02

Here's the news from Yahoo! News and Variety:

O'Connell on 'Fire' in pilots
Wed Mar 13, 7:45pm PT

By MELISSA GREGO

Jerry O'Connell ("Tomcats," "Jerry Maguire") has agreed to fight for NBC's
"RomeFire," while stage and screen veteran Blythe Danner ("Meet the Parents") is
heading over to CBS' "Presidio Med," as the networks continued firming their pilot
plans Wednesday.

Here's the latest:

O'Connell, who has appeared in recent episodes of NBC drama "Crossing Jordan," has taken the role of Ryan Wheeler, one of four firefighter pals in multicamera half-hour "RomeFire," to which NBC has committed 13 episodes. Thesp joins Jessica Capshaw, Stephen Dunham and David Ramsey, who already have been cast as firefighters in a small town called Romeo. Warner Bros. TV and NBC Studios are producing the project that "Friends' " Greg Malins and Kevin S. Bright are writing-exec producing and directing, respectively. O'Connell, Capshaw and Dunham are repped by Endeavor.

O'Connell told Daily Variety that there was one big reason behind his decision to take the job: Malins. "Greg Malins, he's a stud when it comes to half-hour. I had one meeting with him, and that was it. Not only did I want to work with him, I want to be his best friend."

O'Connell added that he thinks half-hour comedy "is really going to be the best arena for me. I grew up on it. In fact, I was raised by three parents: Jack Tripper, Mrs. Garrett and Mr. Drummond."

 

According to other entertainment sources, the show is called "Romeo Fire." Here is a bit more information from TV Tome:


February 27, 2002

Greg Malins the show creator and executive producer of Friends has spoken to E!Online about the new series. He says: "I'm extremely happy at the progress we've made and the state of the show. There were times when i thought this show wasn't going to work, but we've shot the first few episodes and it definitely works. The cast are all perfect and it really is very funny. I can't wait to get this show on air and see what viewers feel. I'm very happy with it and i think everyone will be too."

February 26, 2002

The show is set for a September start. NBC are not sure whether to enter it into their Thursday Night or to choose a different night.

JERRY COMMENTS ON "CROSSING JORDAN"

3/6/02

This interview with Jerry appeared at Priority Records.com

THE VIDEOLAND VIEW: Former "Sliders" star Jerry O'Connell candidly admits that his initial motivation for wanting to do his Jan. 7 guesting on NBC's "Crossing Jordan" was that the show's star, Jill Hennessey, "is possibly the cutest woman on the planet. Sadly, I found out she's married to a very muscular man, so I was on my best behavior." Despite the fact that romantic sparks didn't fly between him and Hennessy, O'Connell says they he had a ball doing the segment. "I got to play a detective for the first time, which is every little boy's dream come true. And Jill, who plays this serious medical examiner, is hysterically funny. She could be on 'Absolutely Fabulous.' Oh, my God, it was a giggle a minute. I'll come back for a few more."
