Michelle Trachtenberg's new NBC show Mercy will be starting production months ahead of schedule and airing Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 8 pm (instead of Mid-Season, as originally planned.) Don't worry Gossip Girl fans, no scheduling conflict is foreseen at the moment, so her limited run reprising the role of Georgina Sparks shouldn't be affected.
James Marsters will be playing Buzz Aldrin in the docu-drama Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11, about the journey to the Moon and back - airing this Monday, July 20th at 9 pm on the History Channel. (They have a nice preview clip over at that link, as well.) James did an interview with the New Zealand Herald about the project.
