NO SPOILERS: ‘BONES’ EXEC KEPT EMILY DESCHANEL’S BABY SECRET
It’s a good thing Hart Hanson hates spoilers. He’s the creator and executive producer of “Bones,” and when the star of his show, Emily Deschanel, found out she was pregnant, he was one of the first people she told. And yes, he kept the news of her impending blessed event a secret.
Now that Deschanel’s gone public with the news, that’s opened up all kinds of speculation about what might happen to her character, Dr. Temperance Brennan, as the show winds up its sixth season and starts to plan for its just-announced seventh season this fall.
While Hanson’s not about to divulge any secrets about how the pregnancy might be dealt with on the show (he did tell us he’s pitched the network six different scenarios), when he talked to Fox All Access, he expressed a great deal of gratitude to Deschanel for confiding in him, and praised the dedication she’s showed to her fellow cast and crewmates.
