THE GRAYSONS AT THE CW

Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson

The CW is developing a series called The Graysons, based on DC Comics' Robin character before he teamed with Batman.

Smallville executive producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson are teaming with McG -- executive producer of The CW's Supernatural and NBC's Chuck and director of the upcoming Terminator: Salvation movie -- on the project, which has been given a go-ahead for a pilot.

The series will feature Dick Grayson, called "DJ" in the show.

Souders and Peterson have been with Smallville since Season 2 and are currently showrunners, along with Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer, after the depature of the show's creators, Al Gough and Mark Millar.

Before The CW was initiated from joining The WB and UPN, an Aquaman pilot -- from Gough and Millar and featuring Smallville's Justin Hartley in the lead role -- was shot, but never aired.

THE SIMPSONS: "LOST VERIZON"

Fox has released a promotional image and a clip from "Lost Verizon," Sunday's new episode of The Simpsons.

The episode guest-stars Denis Leary and producer Brian Grazer.

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"In order to save up money to buy a cell phone, Bart takes a job at a country club retrieving golf balls. While at the course, Bart watches celebrities, including Leary (guest-starring as himself) playing a round. When Leary's cell phone rings just as he is about to take a swing, he furiously throws the phone in the air and it lands right next to Bart. Bart decides to keep the cell and makes prank calls to all over the world pretending to be Leary. He even accepts a job offer from famed producer Grazer (guest-starring as himself) to star in the film version of Everyone Poops.

"When Marge discovers what Bart has been up to, she confiscates the device and calls Leary to return the phone. But Leary has a better idea, and instructs Marge to activate the GPS system on the phone so she can track Bart's every move. Bart quickly catches on and devises a plan that sends the family on a wild goose chase all the way to Machu Picchu."
