    I live about 10 minutes from Pt.Pleasant(Yes, it is a real town in NJ). I wonder if they plan on filming there?

    I had assumed that they were going to base it in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, home of the famous Mothman sightings, seeing as the premise involves the paranormal.

    But remember, it's the evil producer of Buffy, Marti Noxon.

    Myself, I'm looking forward to Tim Minear blowing a blood vessell when The Inside winds up scheduled for Friday sometime in March/April. That'll be hilarious.

    Was she the one left in charge during season 6 and 7 of Buffy?

    SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES TO FOX THURSDAYS WITH THE SERIES PREMIERE OF 'POINT PLEASANT'
    Released by FOX


    SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES … TO FOX THURSDAYS WITH THE SERIES PREMIERE OF "POINT PLEASANT"

    NEW SUPERNATURAL DRAMA TO DEBUT OVER TWO CONSECUTIVE NIGHTS: PART 1 FOLLOWS "AMERICAN IDOL" ON WEDNESDAY, JAN. 19; PART 2 MARKS TIME PERIOD PREMIERE ON THURSDAY, JAN. 20

    All hell is about to break loose in a sleepy New Jersey town when a sudden violent storm washes in more than the tide in the new supernatural drama series POINT PLEASANT, premiering in two parts on Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 19 and 20, on FOX. Part 1 will air on Wednesday, Jan. 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following a special one-hour episode of AMERICAN IDOL. POINT PLEASANT will then air regularly on Thursday nights, starting with Part 2 of the series premiere on Thursday, Jan. 20 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

    The peaceful existence of a small seaside community will change forever when Christina Nickson (Elisabeth Harnois) is rescued from the ocean by local lifeguard Jesse Parker (Sam Page) and brought to the home of local doctor Ben Kramer (Richard Burgi). The Kramers, including Ben's wife Meg (Susan Walters) and daughter Judy (Aubrey Dollar), take an instant liking to Christina and invite her to stay with them as she searches for clues to her past and attempts to find her mother – a Point Pleasant native whom Christina never knew.

    Christina is unaware of the profound effect she has on the town's inhabitants; her presence awakens repressed feelings, unlocks secret desires and heightens emotions. Tensions flare between Jesse, who finds himself inexplicably drawn to Christina, and his best friend Terry (Brent Weber), who secretly lusts after Jesse's possessive girlfriend Paula (Cameron Richardson). Paula's hot-to-trot mother Amber (Dina Meyer) attempts to rekindle her relationship with the good Dr. Kramer. And long-buried secrets kept by Jesse's parents, police captain Logan (Alex Carter) and God-fearing Sarah (Clare Carey), begin to surface, especially when the mysterious and charismatic Thomas Boyd (Grant Show) arrives and insinuates himself into Christina's new life.

    As Christina delves deeper into the history of Point Pleasant, seeking answers to her mother's disappearance, she will come to realize that she has never known her "real" father, either – for Christina is the offspring of a mortal woman and the Devil. While Christina struggles to control the demon inside her – and the powers that come with it – the fight for her soul has begun, as the town of POINT PLEASANT becomes the ultimate battleground of good versus evil.

    POINT PLEASANT is a 20th Century Fox Television Production. Marti Noxon ("Angel," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer"), Dawn Parouse (TRU CALLING), Marty Adelstein and Neal Moritz serve as executive producers. Ben Edlund, Andrea Newmann and Rick Rosenthal are co-executive producers.

    Rick Rosenthal directed a few episodes of Buffy while Ben Edlund was a writer and producer on Firefly and the last 2 seasons of Angel. And heres some stuff I picked up from a Buffy board "Co-Executive Producer Rick Rosenthal, was a director on Buffy, and did the commentry to Normal Again on the S6 DVD
    Line Producer Kelly Manners, was of course Angels line Producer for all 5 seasons, and prior to that a co-producer on Buffy
    Angel Stunt Co-ordinator, and DB's stunt double, Mike Massa is Stunt co-ordinator on the show
    Production Designer Stuart Blatt, held the same position on Angel"

    Seeing as how Point Pleasant is one of my favorite towns on the Jersey Shore, I may just give this one a try.

    I saw the spots for it during 24 and thought it looked interesting. Also a plus is that a few of the producers and writers were Buffy alum.

    Ben Edlund brings it up a notch from "morbid curiosity". And it's not like there's anything else on Thursdays at 9pm.

    I'll give a try since the exec producer is Marti Noxon. Not holding out too much hope for a show that practically bills itself as 'Satan's Spawn moves to the East Coast O.C.'.

    I'll check out a few episodes just to see how it goes. I hope Marti allows some humor into this show instead of letting it be a 22 hour depression.

    I'd go with "in spite of the exec producer being Marti Noxon". Buffy really deteriorated under her watch.

    Main premise is discussed, but beware if you have a low "spoiler threshold"

    Marti Noxon is just horrible.

    But Ben Edlund....hmmm.

    I still bet this show sucks.

    Damn you Point Pleasant, Damn you to hell!!! (sorry, just read that Tru Calling is now "officially" dead because FOX thought Point Pleasant would be a better fit with The OC than Tru Calling ....) I just picked up the Tru Calling DVD set before X-Mas, and got totally hooked ..... at least the 6 season 2 eps they filmed should show up on the air (or hopefully on DVD) sometime ....

    Just wanted to post that.

    Wow, now Marti Noxon is even killing shows she's not working on.

    What's next?
