CBS is looking to its sister cable network Showtime for content to help fill its prime-time schedule as the writers strike continues in the U.S.
Speaking at the UBS Annual Global Media & Communications conference yesterday, Leslie Moonves, the president and CEO of CBS Corporation, cited the hit Dexter as being a likely candidate for repurposing on the broadcast network—albeit, with some edits. Weeds, Brotherhood and The Tudors are also being looked at by CBS programmers, according to reports.
Negotiations between writers and producers resumed yesterday and were scheduled to continue today. The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers issued a statement at the end of the day yesterday noting that the fallout from the strike thus far “is just the tip of an iceberg of economic dislocation if an agreement cannot be reached before January.

Just a reminder! Don’t miss tonight ELizabeth as Celia Hodes on Weeds Season Finale on Showtime at 10 PM ET/PT!! I’ll bring you tomorrow captures from the last episode of Weeds of this season!
Showtime has ordered a fourth season of the Emmy nominated comedy “Weeds.”According to The Hollywood Reporter, a new season of the Mary-Louise Parker series would go into production in April (various strikes pending) and would premiere next summer.
The show’s current third season featured an expanded roster of 15 episodes, but the new run is expected to only be the standard 13. The show’s ratings for this season have been up by 19 percent over last year, though Showtime isn’t comfortable giving out hard numbers. “Weeds” has been part of Showtime’s Monday night comedy hour with the already-renewed “Californication” this fall.
Parker won a Golden Globe in 2006 for her performance as suburban pot-dealing mom Nancy Botwin. The show’s five Emmy nominations this year included nods for Parker and co-star Elizabeth Perkins.
The season finale is scheduled for Nov. 19.

She is the mother of four, but that didn’t stop Weeds star Elizabeth Perkins from posing nude for Allure last year. While she took it as a personal challenge to bare all, her children didn’t feel quite as excited about seeing their mother in the buff in a national magazine.
Elizabeth tells Parade:
I’m sure the kids were mixed up it, but they [also] have mixed feelings about my being on Weeds. I don’t think it’s ever easy being the child of an actor.
The magazine was very businesslike and respectful about it. I’m going to be 47 this year and have had absolutely no plastic surgery. They wanted to show that a woman my age can still look like this.
Elizabeth’s children, Hannah, Maximilian, Alexander and Andreas — may struggle with having an actress for a mother, but Elizabeth says they should be even more grateful that she is nothing like her Weeds character, a highly-critical, suburban PTA-mom.Celia is about as diametrically opposed to me as she can be. Elizabeth is married to cinematographer Julio Macat.
