Both shows, being the ones with supernatural elements, are to fill the Friday night slots for the network this Fall. CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler told reporters on Monday, August 3 that CBS indeed has a lot of plans for "Medium".
When asked whether Patricia Arquette's Allison may bump into Jennifer Love Hewitt's Melinda somewhere along the season, Tassler won't say no. "It's never too soon (to consider)," she said. "Their mythologies are different, and we haven't talked about a crossover, but it's possible. I think right now, the shows have a different language. They have a different skill set, different rules, etc., but once we get the show launched and comfortable in its time period, we could certainly talk about it."
During the occasion, Tassler also revealed the network's happiness in taking over "Medium" from NBC. "On behalf of the studio, I don't think NBC really treated the show the way it should have been treated, where it was put on the schedule, how it was supported. To get Emmy winner Patricia Arquette on Friday night for us was a home run," she gushed.
Both "Medium" and "Ghost Whisperer" premiere on September 25. Creator Glenn Gordon Caron revealed he has bought the rights to horror classic "Night of the Living Dead" in order to put monsters inside "Medium".
