Borden was publicly reproached after being acquitted of killing her father and stepmother with a hatchet in 1892 Massachusetts. While no director is yet on board, Bryce Kass has completed the script for the first half of the series and Sevigny hung out for several nights in Lizzie Borden's one-time home, now a Bed & Breakfast in Fall River, MA. Elizabeth Montgomery played Borden in a 1975 TV movie, The Legend of Lizzie Borden.
- If you'd like to spend a night at the Bed & Breakfast, you can rent a room for around $200, or the entire house for $1,500 per night. Guests are served a breakfast "similar to the one the Bordens ate on the morning of the murders," including bananas, jonnycakes, sugar cookies, coffee and breakfast staples. A brief video history of the murders is below.
- The Nanny may return, but this time Fran Drescher will play a Happily Divorced woman re-entering the dating world after learning that her husband is gay. Drescher, upon whose life the series is based, will also write and executive produce with Peter Marc Jacobson, her Nanny co-creator. This is one of three TV Land pilots, reports Deadline.
- Julie Benz, who went from Dexter to Desperate Housewives to No Ordinary Family, is now joining CBS's untitled Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich) supernatural medical drama, to be directed by Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs), reports TVLine. Patrick Wilson stars as Michael, a competitive surgeon whose life is altered when his wife dies and begins teaching him life lessons. Benz will play Michael's sister, a big-hearted single mother.
