Ooooh ... We just love news about John Allen Nelson, the first (and finest -- and definitely BRB's favorite) Warren Lockridge on "Santa Barbara." So hunky, so tall, so .... sigh ... Anyway, special thanks to Mark, a member of the Get SB on TV Yahoo group and an employee of a certain major network, for the tipoff on this one ...
A new drama series featuring Nelson is queued up at Fox for this fall. "Vanished" is the story of a senator's wife who comes up missing. It's just been picked up for Fox's slate of shows for the new season.
The series comes from Josh Berman, a writer for "CSI." Mimi Leder is directing. Nelson, who's signed on as Senator Jeffrey Collins, is joined in the cast by Rebecca Gayheart and Joanne Kelly.

The hourlong drama format has certainly been the Texas-born Nelson's forte since leaving "SB." He's done stints on very early "Baywatch," as well as "Quantum Leap," "Matlock," Murder, She Wrote" and even the current season's "24."
Coming next week: Another installment in our "See My Lee" feature, and this one is fun!
