 Wonderfalls Delayed?

Tim Minear, who executive produces the upcoming Fox fantasy series Wonderfalls, told SCI FI Wire that the network still has not decided when the show will air, though it's slated for a midseason debut. "We actually don't have an air date yet," Minear said during an interview at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention. "We don't know if we're going to be on in March. We don't know when we're going to be on. ... It may be in the summer. I would imagine it will be before next fall."

Minear said that the show's odd concept was certainly a factor in the delay. Wonderfalls centers around a 24-year-old girl who hears voices coming from the souvenirs she sells in a tourist shop at Niagara Falls. "I think it's a hard show to sell, and I think that's one of the reasons that they're not quite sure when they're going to air it," Minear said. "Because they want to approach the marketing very carefully. It's not really like anything you've seen. People aren't sure if it's a comedy. They don't know what it is."

The success of the similarly themed Joan of Arcadia is encouraging, Minear said, though Wonderfalls has a distinctly different tone from the CBS show. "It shares some things in common, but it's more like Malcolm in the Middle stylistically," he said. "Both these shows were conceived and the pilots were made at the same time, so we're not really taking any inspiration from Joan."
