A move to CBS means fresh ideas for the paranormal drama, including a Halloween episode and a potential crossover.
One of the more interesting network maneuvers to come about at this year's upfronts was CBS' decision to pick up Medium after NBC dropped the paranormal drama. Now on a stable network, the producers of Medium finally have an idea of what's to come, and it's shaping their creative process for the better.
One of the perks of being on CBS is having a set schedule -- Medium frequently bounced around NBC's schedule and spent its last few seasons as a midseason replacement) -- and that means it's Halloween-themed episode time! But don't expect spirit-channeler Allison Dubois to carve a pumpkin and call it a day.
Medium characters will be stepping into the 1968 horror classic Night of the Living Dead, creating a "sort of landscape to her dreams," creator Glenn Gordon Caron told Zap2It. Sounds very cool, but alas, we'll have to wait until October to see how it works out.
In another potential stroke of creativity, CBS is considering a crossover episode by pairing Medium and its new Friday night mate, The Ghost Whisperer (can you handle the Jennifer Love Hewitt/Patricia Arquette hotness!?!?). CBS president Nina Tassler told reporters at the TCAs that the network has to get Medium comfortably suited in its new home -- but once that happens, they'll certainly look into making the sexiest scripted Ghost Hunters-esque show EVER.
