Kelly Kapowski- Saved by the Bell

 

kelly

 Anyone who grew up in the 90’s remembers the students of Bayside High School. Tiffani blossomed in her role as Kelly Kapowski in Saved by the Bell. Young girls looked to Kelly as a fashion role model while young boys dreamed of being lucky enough to kiss the beautiful brunette. Kelly was such a popular television character, that anyone who sees Tiffani today still associates her with the young high school girl. Saved by the Bell also had two TV movies and one spin off, depicting the college years of the gang.

Valerie Malone- 90210

 valerie

 A year after the original Saved by the Bell series came to an end, Tiffani began her role as Valerie Malone in 90210. Valerie was a more complex character than Kelly, with a bit of a darker side and a painful past. She was still considered to be one of the more beautiful characters on the small screen. Valerie used her looks to seduce many different guys in the series including those who were involved with other girls.

 Wilhelmina ‘Billie’ Chambers- Fastlane

willemena

 

In her short-lived role as Billie on Fastlane, Tiffani once again brought out her sex appeal while playing a police lieutenant. Billie was a little on the shady side and showed Tiffani’s ability to be more forceful and powerful. She was in charge of creating a two-man undercover team that dealt with the criminal world of Los Angeles.

Dr. Kayla Martin- Pandemic

 kayla

In the television movie Pandemic, Tiffani played Dr. Kayla Martin, a doctor working for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Kayla had to be brave and face the extremely contagious riptide virus that was rapidly spreading throughout Los Angeles as well as other parts of the globe. She used her intelligence to help find the cure for the disease and held together her team with her cool and collected personality.

 Elizabeth Burke- White Collar

 elizabeth

  

The sophisticated and attractive Elizabeth Burke is adored by White Collar fans almost as much as Saved by the Bell fans loved Kelly Kapowski. Elizabeth is a supportive wife to her husband Peter Burke and a powerful business woman as the owner of Burke Premiere Events. She seems to have it all together, proving that even after ten years, a husband and wife can still have a solid relationship. Even Neal has a great relationship with her. Elizabeth seems to be the type of woman that others envy.

Fox's '24: Live Another Day" To Film In London

2013_Upfronts_24Twentieth Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and FOX are sending the production of 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY across the Atlantic to London for a thrilling international adventure, as the new tent-pole event series restarts the clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise starring Kiefer Sutherland. As previously announced, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will make its historic debut in the summer of 2014 on FOX. “‘24’ has always had such a global sensibility,” said Sutherland, who also serves as an executive producer on the event series. “But to be able to tell this intense ‘24’-style story with the beauty of Europe’s history and architecture as the backdrop is going to be fascinating. Hopefully, by the time you’re finished watching an episode, you’ll feel like you’ve been there...on the edge of your seat.” Co-showrunner and executive producer Evan Katz added, “We wanted the show’s return to be an event, and part of that was putting Jack in a very different context. Four years ago, we left Jack a fugitive from justice and we’re going to pick him up four years later in London.” Co-showrunner and executive producer Manny Coto continued, “Jack is soon back on the run and it takes us into the streets of London and in places that break new ground for the show. We’ve shot in New York, Washington, Los Angeles and Cape Town -- but now we’re in London and Jack’s loose on the streets of Europe, hunted by and hunting bad guys.” Originally premiering November 6, 2001, “24” was nominated for a total of 73 Emmy Awards, winning for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006. Over the course of eight seasons, and a two-hour telefilm, Sutherland garnered seven Emmy Award nominations and one win for Outstanding Lead Actor – Drama Series. While the series gained global recognition, Sutherland’s portrayal of the legendary character penetrated the American psyche like no other dramatic television character to become part of the cultural lexicon.

USA Network Orders Fifth Season Of 'Covert Affairs'

Covert AffairsUSA’s hit original international spy drama series, COVERT AFFAIRS, has received a 16-episode fifth season renewal order.  The series was one of summer’s top 10 cable scripted shows, with nearly 4 million total viewers P2+ (3.955MM). “No other series on television travels the globe to tell a story like COVERT AFFAIRS, and we are pleased to bring it back for another season” said Chris McCumber, President of USA Network.  “With its intricate storytelling, diverse characters and authentic locations, the series continues to be a cornerstone in our line-up of USA’s original signature dramas.” Season four of COVERT AFFAIRS continues on October 17 at 10/9c following the season premiere of WHITE COLLAR.  The season finale is scheduled for Thursday, November 21. The critically-acclaimed spy drama series stars Golden Globe-nominated Piper Perabo  (“Coyote Ugly,” “Beverly Hills Chihuahua”), as Annie Walker, a young CIA operative whose exceptional linguistic skills and killer instinct make her invaluable to the Agency.  As the fourth season continues, we find an emboldened Annie Walker emerging from the life she once knew.  Now, she’s a spy operating off the grid without ties to her agency or the support of her beloved handler, Auggie (Christopher Gorham of “Ugly Betty,” “Jake 2.0”).  Annie knows that tying Henry Wilcox (guest star Gregory Itzin) to the disastrous attack in Copenhagen is the best way to bring him down and that’s exactly what she aims to do.  The series also stars Kari Matchett (“Invasion,” “Leverage”), Peter Gallagher (“The O.C.,” “American Beauty”) and Hill Harper (“CSI:NY”).  In addition to Michelle Ryan and Zuleikha Robinson, guest stars for the remainder of the season include Seeta Indrani, Richard Short, Mike Dopud, Jonathan Togo and Emma Fitzpatrick.  International shooting locations this season have included Medellín, Rome, Vienna, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Grand Bahama Island and Geneva.  This season, Christopher Gorham will direct episode 414. From Universal Cable Productions, COVERT AFFAIRS was created, written and executive produced by Matt Corman and Chris Ord, and is executive produced by Doug Liman (SUITS, the "Bourne" trilogy, "Mr. and Mrs. Smith"), David Bartis (SUITS, "The O.C.") and Gene Klein (SUITS) through Hypnotic.  Stephen Kay (“Sons of Anarchy”) and Sean Ryerson (“Knight Rider”) also serve as executive producers. Leading up to the return of COVERT AFFAIRS, fans can watch the first ten episodes of the current season on VOD and use their mobile devices to access exclusive second screen content on USA Sync at sync.usanetwork.com.  They can also join the immersive online adventure “Sights Unseen: Auggie Undercover.”  The series gives them a glimpse into Auggie’s past, prior to losing his sight and explores his affair with Russian hacker Natasha (Liane Balaban).  Fans can get started by logging on to sightsunseen.usanetwork.com via their desktop or tablet.  After watching each of the webisodes, users can play a variety of mini-games designed to test their spy skills.
