I don't know. Haven't seen it. But learned from a fellow Echo Parker that the NBC series is set in Echo Park.
Hey Jenny, Just wanted to let you know (if you didn't already) that NBC's new show Chuck is set in our fine neighborhood. In the pilot you can see Taix as the main characters are walking down Sunset, and then a fun chase scene occurs right outside The Echo. I can't decide if this is a good or bad thing for the neighborhood, but it's always fun to see your local haunts on national TV!
Actually, the news put my proprietary hackles straight up on end. I'm not above feeling something has been stolen from me -- though I have complained about people who get upset when someone writes about/represents something they think they know and own. It works both ways I guess. And, of course, we don't want to be like those towns in Utah where the blue highway signs all read, "No services" -- Utah for "stay away." In the meantime, Chuck's getting decent reviews.
New York Times:
By the end of the first episode [nerdy] Chuck has stumbled on the most top secret of secrets in the national intelligence community, gone on a date with a gorgeous blond spy and defused a bomb by sending it a computer virus attached to the Web site of a Serbian porn star. The series is part spy spoof, part workplace comedy, and it is a genuinely engaging homage to the nerd hero.
chuck watch Chuck? And J-Lo? What happened to her Echo Park series?
