Sad new 🙁 I was really looking for this one! Via EW.com

Somehow, Ryan Murphy’s ultra-sexy drama series is not getting made at HBO — despite starring Anna Torv, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jaimie Alexander, Michelle Monaghan, Scott Speedman and Wes Bentley.

HBO has shut the door on Open, the Glee and American Horror Story co-creator’s risque take on modern romance that was described as “a multicharacter exploration of the complex, ever evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.”

The premium network’s programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement: “After such a triumphant collaboration with The Normal Heart, everyone felt that Open was not the right next step for all involved. However, we fully expect to work together again in the near future.”

The decision is somewhat surprising given Murphy’s hit-making track record. In the pilot, co-written by Lauren Gussis, Torv was to play a yoga instructor in a long-term relationship with Leigh’s character, while Monaghan played a gynecologist whose marriage and sexuality come into question after an airplane bathroom fling with Torv’s yoga instructor.

Hey guys! New project for Anna! WOOHOO!

Hey, all you Fringe fans, get ready to freak out!

The one-and-only Anna Torv is making her grand return to TV since her five-year run on Fox’s beloved sci-fi hit ended, but this time she’s headed to premium cable. Torv is the latest actress to sign on to Ryan Murphy’s highly anticipated HBO drama, Open.
But she’s not the only big name to sign on today. Critically acclaimed actress Jennifer Jason Leigh will also be joining Torv on Murphy’s sexy new series.

Although most of the details are hush-hush, Open has been described as a “modern and provocative exploration of human sexuality and relationships.” Sounds intriguing!

Torv will shake off her Peter-loving persona in this new series playing Windsor, a yoga instructor who has been in a long-term relationship with Holly, played by Leigh. However, Torv’s affections for her lady may falter because once she meets mysterious character named Grace, she feel an instant connection.

The actresses join Open alongside the previously announced cast including Scott Speedman and Wes Bentley. We’re going to keep our fingers crossed that Murphy will find additional roles for Joshua Jackson and John Noble so we have have our entire Fringe family back together!

Fox on Fringe renewal chances

February 16th, 2011

How does Fox feel about Fringe’s performance on Friday so far?

Quite enthusiastic.

“I’m so psyched about it,” says Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly. “It does go to show you the loyalty of the genre audience, when you get the right show. I’m so grateful to that audience, I’d like to shake their hands. We have a lot of passion for that show here.”

Now, this interview was just before last Friday’s second-in-row dip, but most other shows also fell that night and one rating does not a reputation make. As for Human Target ….

“We have some decisions to make about that,” Reilly says, “and Lie to Me as well. These shows are not being rejected. They’re doing a consistent and solid number. There are networks that would be happy to take those shows. We have to look at our shelf space.”

Translation: We’re going to decide about Human Target and Lie after we see our pilots for next fall. But keep in mind, Fox only programs two hours a night, so that’s a pretty crowded shelf….

Anna Torv played the role this season of duo character “Olivia Dunham & “Alt-Olivia Dunham” as the real world & alternate worlds crossed paths.

It was a strenuous year for the character Olivia Dunham on Fox hit sci-fi series “Fringe. From an on again-off again romance, to being stuck in an alternate universe, to nearly being killed trying to escape.
