Jamie’s Food Makeover: Cutiepie chef Jamie Oliver will star in his own series on ABC. The show will follow the hunky British chef as he travels to the unhealthiest cities in America and gives them a health makeover – presumably teaching folks how to shop locally and organically. The show follows his own British series, ‘Jamie’s School Dinners,’ where Oliver taught kids how to eat healthy.

Stone To Tudors: Another British sensation – musician Joss Stone – is heading back to ‘The Tudors’ to reprise the role of fourth wife Anne of Cleves for the fourth and last season. Unlike the show’s other actresses, Stone is in luck – Cleves’ neck was spared from the guillotine since Henry only wished to have their marriage annulled – when he stopped finding her attractive. Which actually might be more painful than getting your head cut off.

Deal!: GSN has announced that it will air the first three seasons of the Howie Mandel-hosted ‘Deal or No Deal’ starting June 1. The network will also run all seasons of ’1 vs. 100′ with Bob Saget. And if that’s not enough game for you, you’ll be able to check out a free online flash version of ‘Deal’ at the GSN website.

Office Webisode: BJ Novak is directing ‘The Office: Blackmail’ starring Bill Creed. The webisode, now showing on NBC.com, follows Bill’s character as he tries to sabotage his Dunder Mifflin co-workers through blackmail.

Sad News: Michael Landon’s eldest son, Mark Landon (60), has been found dead in his home. Cause of death has not been found but no foul play is suspected.
