Season 2 of Unusually Thicke Brings Out the Stars; TV Land to Shoot Pilot for Heathers

Unusually Thicke

Alan Thicke and his family blur the lines of reality television and sitcom on season two of Unusually Thicke returning on Pop Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 9:00 PM, ET/PT. Between his fiery, much younger Latina wife Tanya and his three sons - teenaged Carter, pop star Robin and marijuana dispensary owner Brennan - Alan has his work cut out for him as a father, husband and Hollywood actor, writer and icon. Pop will air back-to-back half-hour episodes of Unusually Thicke every week for the show's 14-episode season. Buzzworthy storylines are peppered with cameo appearances by an eclectic group of Alan's celebrity friends, ranging from Russell Peters and Cedric the Entertainer to Lance Bass, Kato Kaelin, Jon Dore, Alex Trebek, Cat Cora, Lou Ferrigno, Gilbert Gottfried, Dave Foley, Wayne Brady and Alan's son, Robin Thicke. If you didn't know, the series is a reality sitcom starring the real life modern family - Alan Thicke (Growing Pains), along with his sassy wife Tanya and fun-loving teenage son Carter - will return on Pop on Sept. 21.


TV Land

After announcing a script deal in March, TV Land has greenlit the pilot for Heathers, based on the 1988 cult classic film of the same name. Leslye Headland (Sleeping with Other People, Bachelorette) will direct the pitch-black comedy. Reimagined as an anthology, Heathers will be set in the present day, as our heroine deals with a very different but equally vicious group of Heathers. The script is written by Jason Micallef (Butter), and Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will executive produce for Lakeshore Entertainment. Dating a murderous psychopath and figuring out what to wear to your best friend's suicide are typical teen problems for Veronica Sawyer.
