SMALLVILLE UPDATE

Smallville's reaching 100 episodes was featured on TV Guide Channel's The 411 in a special episode of television milestones.

The Smallville cast was interviewed during the filming of the "Lexmas" episode.

"We have explosions, we have visual effects, we have special effects," said Tom Welling, who plays Clark Kent. "There's no other show on TV that does what we do."

"Detail, it's all about detail on the show, I think that's what makes it really successful," said Michael Rosenbaum, who plays Lex Luthor.

"They were really smart in who they hired, if I say so myself," said Allison Mack, who plays Chloe Sullivan.

In other Smallville news, scenes and trailers from Smallville are making their mobile video debut on Verizon Wireless' V CAST service. Video segments for each show will appear on V CAST the day before the show airs on The WB.

"When people leave their house in the morning they grab their keys, their wallet or purse and their mobile phones. What better way to deliver Warner Bros. content than through the one device they take with them everywhere," said Jim Noonan, senior vice president and general manager of Warner Bros. Online.

"Verizon Wireless was the first company to deliver mobile video in the U.S.; they are pioneers in delivering rich, multimedia content to their customers. Working with them enables us to offer our audience programming that is entertaining and relevant wherever they go."

VICTORIA'S SECRET SERVICE

Blue Water Productions and Alias Comics are launching Victoria's Secret Service, a new monthly title, this week.

The book, by writers Terrance Griep and Darren G. Davis and artist Nadir Balan, tells the story of centuries old Royal Secret Service of girls charged with the mission of protecting the Queen of England.

"We've done some great solo-books, like 10th Muse and Legend of Isis, but this will be the first ongoing team book we've attempted," Davis said. "I knew that we needed creators who could handle a team dynamic, and also keep it fun and entertaining. Terrance and Nadir have done exactly that with Judo Girl, and they're exceeding even my expectations with Victoria's Secret Service."

Here's how Alias and Blue Water are describing the debut issue:

"They say it takes a thief to catch a thief, and the glamorous field agents of Victoria's Secret Service put this saying to the test when they allow their newest member, the American sneak-thief Scarlet, to take point on her first full mission: hoping to derail on imminent coronation, an unknown scoundrel has stolen the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London. It's up to Lark, Raven, Brooke and Scarlet to steal back these precious symbols of the monarchy they have sworn to protect. But which of her teammates is spying on Scarlet? And why? It's thief versus thief and spy versus spy in this high-impact thriller."
