TV briefs: "Sharknado 2"

The Fresno BeeFebruary 24, 2014 

Bigger stars: Kelly Osbourne, Judd Hirsch, Andy Dick, Judah Friedlander, Vivica A. Fox and Mark McGrath will join the cast for "Sharknado 2: The Second One."

Osbourne will portray a flight attendant and Dick will play a New York City police officer. Friedlander will play the character of Brian, while Hirsch — who starred in the New York-based TV series "Taxi" — will be a cab driver named Ben. Fox will join the cast as Skye, an old high school friend of Fin (Ian Ziering), and Mark McGrath — lead singer of the rock band Sugar Ray and "Killer Karaoke" host — will play Fin's brother-in-law.

Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct a screenplay by Thunder Levin, who also wrote "Sharknado."

In "Sharknado 2: The Second One," a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites — and only Fin (Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) can save the Big Apple. It will be filmed in New York City and is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in July.

Special debut: "Zerby Derby," Sprout's newest live-action series, will premiere at 11 a.m. Saturday during "The Sunny Side Up Show," Sprout's live daily hosted morning show.

The series introduces viewers to a world where pint-sized cars live and play in a life-sized forest. Remote-controlled friends Zack, Lily, Rex and Axle embark on exciting adventures as they challenge each other to cross streams, build dams and explore meadows, approaching every potential problem with cheerful enthusiasm.

Their "Try, try again" mantra shows that no obstacle is too large for these optimistic friends.
