ABC is fulfilling every 5-year-old girl's dream.

One of last year's most successful new shows, Once Upon a Time, has cast actresses to play classic favorites alongside current characters Belle, Snow White and Cinderella. Sarah Bolger of The Tudors will play Princess Aurora (better known as Sleeping Beauty) while Jamie Chung from The Hangover Part II will fill the role of warrior princess Mulan. They're just a voiceless mermaid and flying-carpet rider away from the full Disney Princesses set.

Nickelodeon will premiere their reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on September 29. It will probably have a couple fewer explosions than Michael Bay's eventual upcoming film version.

Syfy announced the guest stars that will appear on the upcoming second season of its drama series Alphas, and there are a lot -- including Sean Astin and Lauren Holly -- most likely because Syfy is hoping that more people will watch, or at least find out that the show exists.

After just one season, Justin Deeley is leaving 90210, with his character Austin being written out in this fall's Season 5 premiere. Hopefully, The CW's next move will be to write everyone out and then end the show.

A reality show about bike messengers is being filmed in San Francisco. Not many other details are available, but it should be enough to know that it is a show about watching people ride bikes.
