Apparently, it's official. Darren Swimmer and Todd Slavkin are signed to take on the remake of Melrose Place.
According to this article though, "Smallville fans needn't fret that the departure of Swimmer and Slavkin spells the end of Clark and Co. While the show has yet to be renewed for a ninth season, sources assure that a greenlight for more is likely."
And if and when it comes back, Souders and Peterson will be the two heads.
