In this video, TV Week's Josef Adalian interviews Nina Tassler (President of CBS Entertainment) at the Television Critics Association Tour. The chat took place before the official announcement of Alex O'Loughlin's talent holding deal.
When asked about keeping Alex, she says "Nothing concrete. We've talked to him in the past. I have a great relationship with him. But, its someone we hold in very high regard. So, its someone I'd like to work with... absolutely."
Nina, again, states that she loves Vampire shows.
"Message to Moonlight fans ~ .... I'm incredibly grateful and appreciative... They're loyal and passionate... We can not dismiss how passionate and enthusiastic fans are about their favorite tv characters and about their tv shows. So, I'm totally fine with their passion and enthusiasm."
Nina Tassler also talks about the Fall strategy for CBS, CSI and William Petersen (Grissom) leaving the series, Swingtown, etc. The Alex & Moonlight portion begins around the 3:16 mark of the video.
