    I had high hopes for Members Only. Sounds like a great premise. This is just icing on the cake. Glad to see Luke back on TV. Hopefully ABC will appreciate him and this new show.

  2. Shannara? Hmm..I suppose MTV already has Teen Wolf to prove it can do fantasy. I could never really get into the books though.

  3. Martin says:

    What happened to MTVs TV adaptation of Scream? – is that dead?, haven’t heard anything about it in ages.

  4. Joey Padron says:

    Happy Luke is gonna be back on TV in a new show.

  5. Angel says:

    Yes! Can’t wait to have Luke back on my tv.

  6. S says:

    Yay for Luke! The show sounds like a typical soap opera, but at least it gets him away from The Vampire Diaries/The Originals where I feared he would be trapped.
