HOME BOY

MUSWELLBROOK'S own Cameron Welsh moved into Summer Bay last night.

Welsh, 22, joins Home and Away (7pm weekdays, Prime) as Mitch McColl, a motherless 16-year-old 'bad boy with a heart of gold' kicked out of home by his stepfather.

Last night, Mitch stowed away on Travis' boat. Tonight, he steals the boat, leaving Travis (Nic Testoni) and Bec (Belinda Emmett) all at sea.

Worse still, as he makes his getaway, Mitch swamps local grouch Alf (Ray Meagher), who is fishing in his dinghy.

Yes, the new boy is already making waves!

KISS OFF

THIS is one kiss that would definitely NOT be just a kiss.

Actor Eric McCormack, who plays the gay title character Will on Prime's hot new sitcom Will & Grace (8pm Thursday) hopes the show's second season (we're about to see the first) will include an historic man-to-man kiss.

'To be true to what we started, Will's got to go out there, get a really good dinner with a guy at least,' McCormack said, adding he wanted producers to lure a major star like Brad Pitt to play the target of Will's affections.

HELL FOR HEATHER

HEATHER Locklear will play the Mayor's campaign manager on

Spin City.

'I already feel fortunate to work with the finest ensemble cast in TV comedy,' Michael J. Fox, the show's star and executive producer, said in a statement. 'With the addition of Heather, the best just got better. This is going to be a blast!'

Locklear, 37, won't be seen on the NBN sitcom until next year. She's still playing vixen Amanda on Ten's Melrose Place (now screening 10pm Thursday).

LEE UNWRAPPED

SHERYL Lee played one of TV's most famous corpses,

Laura Palmer (wrapped in plastic!), in the kooky David Lynch series Twin Peaks.

On Monday July 26 she turns up on Ten, very much alive and even healing others in glossy US medical drama L.A. Doctors. Lee plays one of four idealistic medicos who set up their own practice. Expect L.A. Law meets Chicago Hope as

routine check-ups turn deep and meaningful.

WALKER WALKS

ALLY Walker, star of chiller crime series Profiler (9.30pm Tuesdays, Prime), leaves the series soon. Walker plays Dr Samantha Waters, a forensic psychologist who profiles serial criminals. A new profiler character would 'take the series in a new direction', producers said.

PLENTY OF SPACE

STARGAZING couch potatoes will be in orbit next week (the 30th anniversary of the moon landing) with the launch of two landmark TV series exploring what a bloke in a funny skivvy once called 'the final frontier'.

The Planets, an eight-part BBC documentary promising 'the most comprehensive account of space exploration and discovery ever compiled for TV', premieres Wednesday (8.30pm, ABC).

From The Earth To The Moon, Tom Hanks' $60million 12-part mini-series on the voyages of the Apollo astronauts and the 12 manned Apollo missions, premieres 8.30pm Monday on Austar's Movie Extra channel.
