Bits 'n' Pieces: Bo, Luke, their filming locale, and a little Michael Praed for good measure

- From the newswires: The original Warner Bros. studio in Los Angeles where "The Dukes of Hazzard" was filmed has been sold, its owner said Thursday. Tribune Co. said Hudson Capital LLC bought the property for $125 million. The Warner Bros. studio, dating to 1923, was home to the first talking movies, such other legendary films as "The Maltese Falcon" and "Rebel Without a Cause" and TV classics "Maverick" and "Friends."

- Oh, that John Schneider, out and about. You just can't keep a good man down. Or, you just can't keep a good man at home. Or some silly tired cliche like that. Anyway ... thanks to Garry at the nifty for switching channels a bit, so to speak, and sending us the tipoff on this one: John Schneider will appear this summer at the Mirande Country Music Festival. It's in July in the South of France, and in the past it's featured "Dallas" cast members, too. Learn more at the Mirande site.

- Also on the "Dukes" front, we've got another update from Sheri of "Tom's new Broadway show, 'A Catered Affair,' has recently launched its website -- and what a fun website it looks to be. In the spirit of the show, surrounding a family wedding, cast and crew will be sharing their own wedding stories and photos. And even more fun -- you can submit your own story and enter the contest to win tickets for opening night on March 25, 2008 at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York City. Get details at the show's website:"
- Sheri, aka "the web girl,"

- Over in "Dynasty" land, the Gazette in the U.K. has a feature story on Michael Praed, our own Prince Michael of Moldavia, and his role in the stage production of "Sleuth":

Lynn Clark, who introduced the role of Lilly Light to us "Santa Barbara" fans with such fervor in 1986, in one of the first episodes of "Seinfeld," from 1990 and airing on TBS last week, portraying Jerry's girlfriend Vanessa. She had long, dishwater-blond hair and that late '80s look (and seemed so much taller! guess Lane Davies just enveloped her on-screen back on "SB"), but her voice was unmistakable. Fun!
