'Beauty and the Beast' is one of the hot new TV shows debuting on the CW this fall. While it is not premiering until Thursday, Oct 11 at 9/8c, there is already some exciting news.

It was recently announced that Luke McFarlane, from ABC's 'Brothers and Sisters' will be guest starring on the show. TV Guide states that MacFarlane, who will appear in the second episode of the freshman series, will play Philippe Bertrand, the exacting yet talented artistic director the of the Bertrand Ballet Company who's intrinsically involved in his dancers' lives.

'Beauty and the Beast' is loosely based on the TV show from the 80's and stars Kristen Kreuk and Jay Ryan. Kreuk stars as Catherine Chandler, a cop who intersects with Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan), who was turned into a beast after a faulty military experiment.

I loved the original series and watched it as a kid and so I hope this isn't a cheesy knock-off!
