  • Spoilers! EW’s Michael Ausiello quotes Life co-star Donal Logue on the future of the show:

    Question: I hear Life won’t renewed for next season. Say it ain’t so, Mike! –Bev O.

    Ausiello: It ain’t so! At least not yet anyway! Life co-star Donal Logue told us at the Monsters vs Aliens premiere that NBC probably won’t make a decision until May. And unlike you, the uncertainty isn’t keeping him up nights. “I am in a different position on this show than on shows I have done in the past where I was more the lead or title character,” he says. “On other shows I have done, I would be more in Damien’s position. He’s the one that is really feeling the concern. I feel free and open; it has been a great experience.” Logue adds that they’re shooting the season (or series?) finale as we speak. “It is really a super action-packed episode and it will answer a lot of questions. I think it is a very strong script and, so far, what we have shot looks great. Charlie confronts the deep dark parts in this episode. He is going to confront the conspiracy against him and it gets pretty intense.”

  • A message received from Sharon, Damian’s assistant in LA, confirms that March 26th is the last day of filming for Life – Season 2. Regarding the future of the show, Sharon said that “no one knows anything – I know that for sure! Tomorrow is the last day of filming….I’ll send more info when I get it!”

  • This NBC press release shares good news about viewer ratings for Life:

    Wednesday from 9-10 p.m. ET, “Life” (1.5/4 in 18-49, 4.3 million viewers overall) built on its lead-in from the previous hour by 25 percent in 18-49 rating and 27 percent in total viewers, despite intense competition in the hour from Fox’s “American Idol,” ABC’s “Lost” and CBS’s “Criminal Minds.” It is worth noting that “Life” has been adding an average 23 percent in adults 18-49 when going from “live plus same day” to “live plus seven day” results, one of the biggest increases for any show on the major networks.

  • Robert Fulford of The National Post published this article about the star of Life saying:

    “Damian Lewis, who looks every inch a tough American, turns out to be part of the extensive British invasion of American TV. At school Lewis played the villainous Wackford Squeers in Dickens’s Nicholas Nickleby and … he was Laertes to Ralph Fiennes’ Hamlet. On TV he became Soames in the remake of The Forsyte Saga. In 2001 Steven Spielberg escorted him into American TV by casting him in Band of Brothers, HBO’s 10-part series about the American army fighting its way east from Normandy in 1944-45.”

  • Alex Billington at Movie Net News says that The Escapist with Damian Lewis will be released in New York City on April 3rd and in Los Angeles on April 10th. Excerpts from his comments about the film include:

    “IFC Films just sent over the official poster for The Escapist, the British prison escape film from Sundance last year that stars Brian Cox, Damian Lewis, and Joseph Fiennes. This incredible little indie deserves as much as love as it can get, as it’s truly a fantastic film full of great performances. It’s one of my favorite films of last year, although it’s only just hitting theaters this upcoming April. Not only did it make my list of the 19 Best Movies That You Didn’t See but I ranked it as my #1 favorite film from Sundance that year.…Brief excerpt from my Sundance review: This movie just rocked me to the core… Great characters, a well-written plot, an intricate escape plan, and that damn score, are all part of what made this my favorite film.’”

  • The Hollywood Reporter has an interview with Angela Bromstad, President of primetime entertainment at NBC and Universal Media Studios where she discusses shows that are on the bubble and says this about Life:

    THR: And “Life”?

    Bromstad: “Life” is a show I developed when I was here before I left. Damian (Lewis) is a great star. We wish the ratings were better. That’s really all we can say.

    Okay that wasn’t too positive – but don’t give up people! Keep spreading the word about the show to friends, family members, etc. Show how devoted you are by sending cards, postcards, and emails saying NBC needs to renew this show and support it because it’s one of the best shows they have (and one of the best on TV!) . Visit the official site, rewatch the show at NBC.com or Hulu.com, or purchase it off iTunes – show them numbers Nielsen isn’t providing them!
