The CW has finally revealed the premiere date for its much delayed hour long sudser HIDDEN PALMS. In a press release sent to theTVaddict.com, CW President Dawn Ostroff, announced that HIDDEN PALMS will debut on Wednesday, May 30 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET).
Multi-generational HIDDEN PALMS focuses on Johnny Miller (Taylor Handley, “The O.C.”), a teen who is struggling to come to terms with two tragedies in the strange and artificial atmosphere of Palm Springs. In addition to Handley, HIDDEN PALMS features a star-studded ensemble cast including “NYPD Blue” veterans Gail O’Grady and Sharon Lawrence, D.W. Moffett (“Traffic”), and fresh faces such as Amber Heard (“Alpha Dog”), Michael Cassidy (“The O.C.”), Ellary Porterfield (“The Prizewinner of Defiance, Ohio”) and Tessa Thompson (“Veronica Mars”).
Even more interesting is the fact that the new series will serve as the lead-in for this season’s final three original episodes of ONE TREE HILL including that show’s season finale on Wednesday, June 13. OTH fans take note — it’s never a good sign when your show has been pushed off the pivotal May Sweeps schedule (see EVERWOOD last year). May I humbly suggest kicking your fan campaign into high gear… NOW.
