TV Guide Description For Pilot
Oct 19, 2003
TV Guide has posted their description for the pilot episode:
Debut: This far-fetched, fast-paced supernatural series achieves dramatically what “Groundhog Day” did comically. In that film, Bill Murray's weatherman relived the same wintry 24 hours over and over. Here, a spunky premed student played by Eliza Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) relives a different day in each episode, enabling her to go back in time to alter destinies. In the opener, Tru seeks to reverse the dire fates facing her brother (Shawn Reaves), a compulsive gambler; and a troubled woman entangled in messy love affairs.

Cast: A.J. Cook, Eliza Dushku, Jessica Collins, Shawn Reeves, Zach Galifianakis, Hudson Leick, Heath Freeman, Kavan Smith, Callum Keith Rennie, Vincent Larosca, Woody Jeffreys, John Haymes Newton

Episode 6 Spoilers
Sept 8, 2003
Casting sides have been released for Episode 6 called "Star Crossed". In this episode, Tru has to stop two teens from being killed in a car accident. Here's a summary:

Two 17 year old high school students, Adam Whitman and Jen die in a car crash. Tru finds out about it when she has to go pickup the bodies.

During the repeat, Tru goes to the private high school they attend, saying her family is thinking of moving to the area so she's checking out the school for the day. She meets up with students there - one of the victims, Adam, and his girlfriend, Amy. Tru assumed that Jen was Adam's girlfriend.

They head to the cafeteria where Adam questions Tru about where she's from. Tru spots the other victim, Jen, working the cash register. Jen and Adam avoid eye contact. Tru asks about Jen, and Adam explains she's one of the students on a scholarship that rich kids like him don't associate with.

Tru goes out for a drink with Luc, but has to rush off to a spot where the high schoolers are racing cars. She finds one of Adam's friends and he points out where he last saw Jen.

On an industrial tower, Tru spots Amy and Jen kissing. Those two are involved, not Jen and Adam. Adam also sees them, and questions what's going on. Tru tries to calm Adam down. Jen is worried everyone's now going to find out about them. Amy and Jen decide to leave town, and go to pack. Amy tells Jen she'll pick her up in a half hour. Tru tries to console Adam, telling her about when her boyfriend cheated on her, but Adam tells her this is different.

Lindsay meets with a guy named Gregory and gives him a portfolio. It looks like Harrison gets her a job.

At Jen's house, Jen is quickly packing. She gets a call from Amy who says she's on her way. Her brother, Derek, questions where she's going and who she said "I love you" too.

Adam shows up at Jen's house to pick her up instead of Amy. He wants to talk to her.

Tru drives to Jen's house is Harrison's car (that barely runs). She meets up with Jen's brother who's pissed off about Jen going off with Adam. Tru goes in Derek's car to go after Jen and Adam.

Adam is a maniac driver. He interrogates Jen about her relationship with Amy, as he keeps going faster and faster. Adam ends up parking the car near where Tru picked up Adam and Jen's bodies. He realizes that Amy and Jen are happy together. Just then, Derek's car plows into Adam's car.

Pilot Re-shot Last Week
Aug 20, 2003
The Sydney Morning Herald has an article about director Philip Noyce being honored at the screening of his new film, Newsfront, in Hollywood last night. It mentions him filming the Tru Calling pilot last week.
Noyce has been busy in recent months, last week finishing a television pilot for Rupert Murdoch's US TV network Fox, and scheduled to be aired on Australia's Seven Network, called Tru Calling.
Philip Noyce directed the unaired Tru Calling pilot back in February as well. He replaced Rob Cohen (who directed XXX and Fast & The Furious), who was originally scheduled to direct the pilot but left the production for unknown reasons before the pilot was filmed.

Tru Possibly Bumped To Midseason?
Aug 20, 2003
Dark Horizons has a rather disturbing report that Tru Calling might be pushed back to midseason or spring while the show is retooled:
Tru Calling (TV): 'Not Green or Texas' has some big rumours on a delay in store for the Eliza Dushku series - "It looks like the new Fox show 'Tru Calling' is being pushed back to midseason or spring for a third round of recasting and rewriting. The first few episodes and the pilot are going to be reshot. Fox has told the producers of their other new show 'Still Life' to hurry up and they're starting production two weeks earlier than originally schedule (they're starting filming on September 23). Seems that unless the producers of 'Tru Calling' can quickly retool their show to the satisfaction of the executives at Fox, 'Still Life' will replace 'Tru Calling' and will premiere on October 30th whilst 'Tru Calling' will premiere some time next year as a midseason replacement".

Tru Calling Episode 4 Spoilers
Aug 14, 2003
The casting sides were released for the fourth episode of Tru Calling - "Past Tense". Here's a rundown of the details:
Five bodies arrive at the morgue - all guys at a bachelor party at a hotel. They've been poisoned.

At Meredith's office, one of her bosses comes in to tell her the law firm is instituting random drug testing. She's nervous, since she has been using.

The day repeats.

Tru starts investigating the 5 men. They were at a bachelor party at the Hotel Piermont for John Brockett, but she doesn't know their names. She doesn't even know if John was one of the victims or not.

Tru warns Meredith about the drug testing and tells her to make sure she's staying clean.

Tru tries to get John to cancel his bachelor's party at the hotel. He thinks his finance, Robin Wilson, sent Tru to ruin their fun. John tells Tru that his finance doesn't like John's friends, who are all his old college buddies.

Tru tells him she's with the hotel and starts asking questions. John is suspicious. Tru tries to tell them the room they have reserved has water damage, but John is adamant about having his bachelor party at the hotel.

Tru has to find another plan. At the morgue, she asks Davis about the drug Avocardyl, claiming she's studying for her med school entrance exams. The drug is a poison found in common chemical products, that water soluble and odorless. Tru asks if it can be detected if someone has been slipped this poison. Davis tells her it can, picking up on Tru accidentally saying "victim".

As with all bachelor parties, there's a stripper. Tru tries to make sure the stripper who's supposed to be at John's party (Tara) is elsewhere and tries to hire her. But that doesn't work.

Tru gets into the hotel suite, pretending to be bartender (but she has no clue how to mix drinks). She's gotten rid of the alcohol that was there and replaced it, in case it was poisoned. There's 6 guys at the party (5 of whom end up dead). The best man, Ethan, arrives late.

Tru continues to serve drinks, as she observes all of the potential suspects/victims at the party, eavesdropping as they discuss their issues. One of the guys, Blake, starts getting suspicious of Tru being there.

But then the stripper, Tara, comes in. There's an awkward exchange between Tara and Tru in the bathroom.

Meanwhile, Harrison is investigating John's finance, Robin, who works at a clothing store. He flirts with another clerk and finds out where Robin has gone.

Back at the party, Ethan doesn't look too good. Tru offers him a drink and finds out he's a recovering alcoholic. She knows that Ethan is one of the guys who dies. He didn't have any alcohol in his system, but did have the poison.

Tru keeps track of the suspects on a napkin, crossing off their descriptions as she eliminates them. She starts to suspect maybe the club soda is poisoned, since Ethan only was drinking that. She calls Davis on her cellphone, asking him if the carbonation in the club soda might speed up the affect of the poison.

Tru goes out on the balcony and chats up Ethan about John, trying to find out any of his "issues". They're interrupted by Blake, who wants Ethan to go back in for a lap dance.

Meanwhile at Meredith's office, she's mildly surprised when Tru's warning comes true and she does have to undergo a random drug test.

Tru intercepts Ethan at the bathroom and starts prodding as to why Blake interrupted them and what exactly is the big secret that happened to the guys in college. She gets him to crack and reveal that something happened to a girl.

They're interrupted again, and Tru sees that Blake is missing from the party. She goes to look for him and he corners her in the hallway, pulling the napkin out of her pocket. Blake checked with the hotel and found out they hadn't sent a bartender. Tru claims she's a journalist working on a story, but then there's a scream from the room. The stripper, Tara, is completely freaked out and telling them to keep their hands off of her.

Blake threatens to call security and Tru has to leave.

Tru goes back to the morgue and gets yelled at by Davis. He knows she hasn't been studying for her med school acceptance tests and isn't be honest with him. Tru wants to explain what's going on, but there isn't time.

Tru heads back to the hotel. She tells Blake she thinks one of the guys is willing to do anything to cover up what happened in college. Blake totally flips out, questioning her told her. Just then Harrison calls Tru and tells her that he's found Robin. There is no wedding. It was called off months before.

She realizes the murderer isn't Blake. It has to be whoever planned the bachelor party. She theorizes that John killed the girl and is trying to cover it up. She gets Blake to help her stop John. Tru and John go into the hotel room and confront John and the others, telling them the wedding has been called off and that they need to deal with what happened.

John goes off into another hotel room, Tru follows and continues to confront him about what's happened. She notices his drink doesn't have ice in it and realizes the poison was in the ice. She tells him she put crushed ice in all the drinks, so if he did poison it, he'll need the antidote. John goes pale.

The police are called and John is lead out of the hotel in handcuffs.

Blake explains that he wrote to John several weeks ago and said he was going to go to the police because of the guilt (but didn't sign the letter). She tells Tru about what happened to the girl (she split her head open on glass coffee table while John was attempting to assault her).

Tru goes back to the morgue and talks to Gardez.

There's still no sign of Luc (who was cast earlier this month. He's played by Matthew Bomer, from the soap Guiding Light). It's possible that Bomer still has to complete filming for Guilding Light before he can work on Tru Calling.

Comic Con Report
July 20, 2003
At the San Diego Comic Con today there was a special screening of the Tru Calling pilot along with a Q&A with producer Jon Feldman and cast members Eliza Dushku, Shawn Reeves, Zach Galifianakis, and Jessica Collins. The major news from the convention was that Tru Calling will premiere in October or November after baseball. According to Jon Feldman, no date has been set yet because it depends on how many games the World Series goes for. He also said to expect plenty of ads for Tru Calling during the World Series.

The original pilot was screened, without any changes having been made. None of the changes being rumored were discussed. However, the first question asked was "When is Tru going to get a car?". Jon laughed and said that there were going to be changing that, and it was only done to show how fast past the show would be. He added that if they kept it up, Tru would be dead in three episodes from exhaustion.

The second question asked was to Eliza, asking if Tru Calling is canceled, will she do a Faith spinoff. Eliza replied that she's trying to remain optimistic about Tru Calling and wanted to take a risk doing something new, but didn't address whether or not she's written off the idea of a doing a Faith series in the future.

Another Tru Calling question asked was whether there would be an ongoing story arc, or just stand-alone episodes where Tru saves people. Jon answered that there will be ongoing storylines involving Tru, her mother, ect and then every episode a person she saves or doesn't save. He emphasized that she won't save everyone.

Jon Feldman concluded the Q&A by telling the audience that whatever happens with the show, he was grateful for the support the audience was showing.

Also, Fox screened the first 6 minutes of the Fox mid-season show, Wonderfalls (executive produced by Angel's Tim Minear), and it looks absolutely brillant. It's so funny and incredibly well-done. Marti Noxon also was there to briefly talk about her new Fox show, Still Life.

Mark Evans Being Recast
July 10, 2003
Casting sides have been released for Mark Evans again, indicating that the role is being recast. It's being reported that it's for episode 2 of Tru Calling, however the scenes being used to audition the new Evans are from the original pilot episode script - the scene where Tru first wakes up at Evan's apartment, and a brief scene after Tru gets off the phone with Harrison where Evans gives her a key to his apartment, wanting her to move in with him and go public with their relationship.

It's not clear yet how the casting of a new potential love interest, Luc, affects the situation with Mark Evans.

There has also been an unconfirmed report that the role of Gardez, the other morgue attendant, is being recast.

Tru Calling Screening at San Diego Comic Con
