Brian Van Holt to captain Syfy’s new space adventure

Cougar Town actor Brian Van Holt is boarding Syfy’s Ascension. Holt is joining the cast of the limited series space thriller, which also stars Battlestar Galactica‘s Tricia Helfer.

Ascension is about starship secretly launched from Earth in the year 1963, sending hundreds of men, women and children to populate a new world. Nearly 50 years into the journey, as they approach the point of no return, the mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.

Holt (The Bridge, Black Hawk Down) will play the ship’s captain William Denninger, who is described as “a natural leader, a military man and politician … strong-willed and confident.” He became captain of the Ascension as a result of his heroic actions during a fire that nearly destroyed the ship early in its voyage. While strong-willed and confident, he and his wife, Viondra (Helfer), have a tortured marriage.

Ascension is a six-hour drama created and written by Philip Levens (Smallville) who will serve as showrunner. Syfy plans to launch Ascension in November. We can’t wait to see what an early 1960s starship looks like!

TV Showrunner Bill Lawrence Talks ‘Undateable,’ Wine and Lost Souls

Bill Lawrence still has plenty of boyish charm, but he’s become one of the elder statesmen of the sitcom biz, in recent years juggling three or more shows at a time through his Warner Bros. TV-based Doozer Prods. As NBC’s “Undateable” approaches its May 29 premiere, joining “Cougar Town” and “Ground Floor” on his active roster, the showrunner who cut his teeth on “Spin City” and “Scrubs” talks about mentoring a new generation, wine consumption and lost souls.

Why so many shows from your company all at once?

I’ve reached a point in my career that the most satisfying thing is to get other talented writers through the system. Also, they are younger than I am, so they still have souls. I need that in my life.

What makes a man “undateable”?

The idea behind this show is that due to insecurity, wardrobe choices, job situation, your “look” — see my peroxide-blond stage — every guy and girl goes through an “undateable” stage. Most people get out of it. These folks are stuck.

How is your job different when you are an exec producer/godfather vs. the creator of a show?

Same job, but if the show is really good, it’s because of the young, talented creator(s) behind it. If it fails, it’s most likely my fault.

Cougar Town Renewed by TBS for a Sixth (and, Yes, a Final) Season

Fill your largest flower vase with Malbec: TBS has renewed Cougar Town for Season 6.

Brace for a slightly bittersweet celebration, however, as the show’s next batch of 13 episodes will be the final ones for the Courteney Cox-led ensemble comedy about a group of wine-guzzling, suburban Florida pals.

TBS’ sixth- and final-season order will bring Cougar Town past the 100-episode mark, the magic number for becoming a viable candidate for syndication.

Cougar Town premiered in September, 2009 on ABC as a lead-out to Modern Family, then made the leap to cable after getting cancelled at the end of Season 2.

The forecast for the sitcom’s future looked slightly uncertain as recently as last month, when series regular Ian Gomez booked a role on the CBS comedy pilot Cuz-Bros (in second position to his Cougar Town gig).

The cul-de-sac crew is expected to return to TBS — and pound copious grape — in early 2015.

Ian Gomez Books CBS Comedy Pilot “Cuz-Bros”

CBS’ Cuz-Bros is becoming a safe haven for sitcom actors with undefined futures.

Cougar Town‘s Ian Gomez has been cast in the CBS comedy, which also stars Enlisted‘s Parker Young and Geoff Stults, Deadline reports.

The sitcom centers on Nick (Stults), a Los Angeles ladies’ man whose world is rocked when his cousin Barry (Young) needs a place to crash. Gomez will play Phil, who’s in charge at the radio station where Nick works.

Like Stults and Young, Gomez’s Cuz-Bros part is in second position to his role on TBS’ Cougar Town; if the cabler renews the wine-soaked comedy for a sixth season, Gomez would continue with that series.

Bookmark TVLine’s Cable Renewal Scorecard — and check often — to stay up to date on Cougar Town‘s fate.
