Jeremiah apparently cancelled; free interactive comic
by Doc on Jun.29, 2004, under Television
I haven’t heard anything official from Showtime, but they haven’t said anything, and there is still half of season two to air (and I think it is being billed as Season 3), but in this SCIFI Wire article, it mentions that Jeremiah has been cancelled. The article is about an interactive comic being developed by comic book writer Andrew Foley to pick up where the Showtime series left off, and will be offered free on JeremiahPortal.com. The article does quote Foley on how Platinum chief Scott Mitchell Rosenberg has been working hard to keep Jeremiah alive, with a prequel film in development and a role-playing game, and the possibility of pickup by the SCI FI Channel – although SFW was quick to point out that they have made no announcements. Showtime leaves my satellite box as soon as I’ve seen “Season 3”.

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince next book title
by Doc on Jun.29, 2004, under General News
CNN is reporting the confirmed new title of the sixth Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, shutting down some serious and not-so-serious rumors and hoaxes. Various fan sites were running around recently with “Pillar or Storge” (a reference to familial love), but J.K. Rowling has finally let the wizard out of the bag. It was also considered the title for the second book at one point, and Rowling also writes “The HBP is neither Harry nor Voldemort.”
