#SPOTTED: THE 2017 NEW YORK CITY UPFRONTS (TV WEEK)
We’ve been to New York City many times but never for #TVWeek and are we ever glad we did! Stars flocked to the cosmopolitan mecca this week to present the upcoming 2017-2018 programming lineups on behalf of their respective networks. Known also as the Upfronts, major networks like NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, CW and several more this past week announced upcoming cancellations, renewals and brand-new Series coming to their programming slates.
The star power was explosive and several faces, familiar and new graced the Big Apple. While we were only able to stay for the first part of #TVWeek, we are thrilled at the caliber of talent we saw and met! I mean, Toronto hosts the Canadian Upfronts in early June which also is exciting, but this was another level!

#SPOTTED: DAVID EIGENBERG IN TORONTO FOR “CHICAGO FIRE”
Flying into Toronto last night to promote hotly-tipped new Series Chicago Fire, David Eigenberg definitely is a familiar face to a generation of Women. Known widely for his work on HBO‘s Sex and the City as Bartender/Husband of Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), Steve Brady, the Actor was out and about doing Press at the Shaw Media Building. Just last night he made an appearance on newly-launched Entertainment Tonight Canada Live.
Noticing his hair looked noticeably-improved after this Snap on Twitter the other day, Eigenberg had a good chuckle at my comment, stopping for a quick Photo. Great Guy.
The Chicago Native is cast perfectly (and conveniently) in the Drama Series set in his Hometown, premiering next Wednesday at 10:00 PM on NBC and Global Television. As an aside, Taylor Kinney (Boyfriend of Lady Gaga) stars in the Series!
