Misc. News not put up yet

This is just an unofficial fan page, we have no connection to any shows or networks.

I get sent LOTS of news by the networks and their PR people. There's only me at the present time to go through the emailed news, post it on the Primetime Forum and then put part of it on our weekly news/schedule pages, so I frequently fall behind.

Here you will find news that I'm behind on putting up. The most recent news is at the bottom! Scroll down to find it first. Older news is at the top. This is somewhat in chronological order, but not all of the info is dated.  Sorry, we do our best!

If you want to help me post news on our forum or on our news pages, please email me!  We need all the help we can. Thanks!

PLATINUM-SELLING GLOBAL MEGASTAR MARIAH CAREY
JOINS “AMERICAN IDOL” AS NEW JUDGE

Mariah Carey, one of the best-selling female recording artists of all
time, has joined AMERICAN IDOL as a new judge. A five-time Grammy
Award-winning global superstar with more than 200 million records sold
worldwide and more No. 1 songs than any solo artist in history, her 18
Billboard No. 1 singles (17 of which Carey wrote) rival all but The
Beatles. Carey joins the judges’ panel when AMERICAN IDOL returns in
January 2013 on FOX.

“As a singer, songwriter and producer, it’s going to be fun and rewarding
to help find new talent and give back with AMERICAN IDOL,” said Mariah
Carey. “I’m currently in the studio working on my new album and its first
single, ‘Triumphant,’ which will be out early next month. I can’t wait to
channel my creative energy as a part of this show which is a massive
global phenomenon.”

“We are proud to have one of the world's greatest-ever female singers join
our show,” said IDOL creator and executive producer Simon Fuller. “Mariah
defines the word 'Idol' and will inspire every singer that has the honor
of performing in front of her.”

“Mariah Carey is a global icon whose list of musical accomplishments is
unprecedented,” said Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO, FremantleMedia. “Having sold
more than 200 million records worldwide, she’s a true artist, ideally
suited to identify and nurture AMERICAN IDOL’s next great music
superstars. We warmly welcome her to the IDOL family.”

From Monday 9/24, a little late...

Last night's Emmys program demonstrated a universal love for quality television. But let's not forget that some of the biggest cult hit television shows are those that were threatened with low ratings, tricky time slots, and - worst of all-early cancellations.

Fresh from new online magazine TheCredits.org http://bit.ly/PlwMpI , here are some of the most infamous examples of how a motivated and mobilized couch-potato fan base has changed the course of television history. From the super hits (Star Trek: Next Generation) to television's recent tragedies (Arrested Development) and those you'd never think were ever in peril (Friday Night Lights, Family Guy.)

“FAMILY GUY” HITS 200 EPISODES AND CELEBRATES WITH A FREAKIN’ SWEET ONE-HOUR EVENT SUNDAY, NOV. 11 ON FOX

FAMILY GUY has made a talking baby famous, resurrected the song “It’s
Peanut Butter Jelly Time,” glorified chicken fights and turned “Death”
into a loveable character. So it’s only fitting that this hugely popular
animated series will celebrate its 200th episode with a spectacular
one-hour event, including the milestone episode and a tribute to the Emmy
Award-winning series, airing Sunday, Nov. 11 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on
FOX.

“Watch your back, Simpsons, we’re less than halfway there,” quipped Stewie
Griffin.

The one-hour momentous event kicks off with the 200th episode, “Yug
Ylimaf,” in which BRIAN (Seth MacFarlane) abuses STEWIE’s (MacFarlane)
time machine and causes reality to run in reverse. So the two must work
together to set things right before Stewie is “unborn.” Then, in the
FAMILY GUY 200th retrospective, “The End Of The World As We Know It,” fans
will get a behind-the-scenes look at this irreverent comedy’s most
outrageous moments, through fascinating interviews with creator Seth
MacFarlane and voice actors Mila Kunis, Alex Borstein and Seth Green.
Additionally, the special will give fans an exclusive glimpse into the
cast and crew’s 200th episode party in Los Angeles, from the red carpet to
MacFarlane serenading the party-goers, accompanied by an orchestra.

For 200 episodes, FAMILY GUY has followed the adventures of an endearingly
ignorant dad, PETER GRIFFIN (MacFarlane), and his hilariously odd family
of middle-class New Englanders in Quahog, RI. LOIS (Alex Borstein) is
Peter’s wife, a stay-at-home mom with no patience for her family’s antics.
Then there are their kids: 17-year-old MEG (Mila Kunis) is an outcast at
school and the Griffin family punching bag; 13-year-old CHRIS (Seth Green)
is a socially awkward teen who doesn’t have a clue about the opposite sex;
and one-year-old Stewie is a diabolically clever baby whose burgeoning
sexuality is very much a work in progress. Rounding out the Griffin
household is Brian (MacFarlane), the family dog and a novelist who is one
step away from AA.

FAMILY GUY is a 20th Century Fox Television production. Seth MacFarlane is
creator/executive producer. Rich Appel serves as executive
producer/showrunner, while Mark Hentemann, Steve Callaghan, Danny Smith,
Alec Sulkin, Wellesley Wild and Kara Vallow are executive producers. The
200th episode special is produced by Brad Lachman Productions. “Like”

KAL PENN NAMED HOST OF NEW DISCOVERY CHANNEL COMPETITION SERIES 'THE BIG BRAIN THEORY'

Who Will Become America's Next Great Inventor?

(Los Angeles, Calif.) - Discovery Channel announced today that actor, producer, and civil servant Kal Penn will serve as host of its new competition series "The Big Brain Theory." Penn, who starred in the hit film franchise "Harold & Kumar" as well as worked in the White House, began taping episodes earlier this week at WET in Los Angeles. The series, set to debut in the spring of 2013, will feature a seemingly impossible engineering challenge to be solved by the contestants each week.

"With the death of Steve Jobs, I think we all have wondered about the future of American innovation, and who will be the next great technological mind that will have serious impact on our lives. This show seeks to find that person, along the way revealing and celebrating the level of innovation that exists within our scientific community," said Nancy Daniels, executive vice president of production and development for Discovery Channel.

There are countless television shows in search of the next breakout singer, dancer, chef, fashion designer and business executive. However, there is nothing quite like this. Competitors will have just 30 minutes to come up with a solution using their own intellect to complete the challenge.

Based on logic and design, the expert panel of judges will determine the best engineering concept and select two captains to lead their team to execute the project. The team with the best design will remain safe, but the losers will face the judges who will determine which member will be eliminated.

The cameras will not only capture the tension and pressure in the design workshop, but will also go inside the living quarters where all the competitors must reside - dealing with each other's quirks and habits.

The winner of the competition will earn $50,000 and a one year contract to work at WET, the industry leader behind some of the world's most innovative water-based designed environments and experiences including the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas.

"The Big Brain Theory" is produced by Pilgrim Studios for Discovery, with Pilgrim's Craig Piligian and WET CEO Mark Fuller serving as executive producers. Kal Penn also serves as a producer for the series. Craig Coffman serves as executive producer for Discovery.

TV Guide Magazine stepped onto the set of ABC's *Castle*, to get the inside scoop on the upcoming season. In the November 5 episode of ABC's hit drama, the crime solving duo are trekking into new territory: a sci-fi convention. After a woman turns up dead aboard the starship replica, Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) find themselves thrust into the world of rabid fandom known as SuperNovaCon, clearly modeled on San Diego Comic-Con.

The episode, titled "The Final Frontier," pays particular homage to *Firefly *, Nathan's short-lived sci-fi Western on Fox. *"I look at **Firefly like it was my first love," says Fillion during a break. "When we were canceled, it was awful."*

According to Katic, the revelation of Beckett's obsession with *Nebula-9* marks another milestone in the "Caskett" relationship. *"She's perhaps not as shy or as close to the vest about parts of herself,"* Katic says. *"And that's neat because it means that they're freer together, more open with each other. *Viewers shouldn't expect the relationship bliss to last forever. "That'd be totally boring," executive producer Andrew Marlowe says. *"As we move through the season, we're gonna complicate it."*

The November 19 episode will offer one such snag, when the lovebirds bring together Castle's mother, Martha (Susan Sullivan), and Beckett's father, Jim (Scott Paulin). *"I don't know that the parents are gonna get along*,*"*says Katic of the tense dinner.

The Mad Men Fashion File's Halloween Costume Guide

If you've always wished you could dress like a Mad Men character and have
been searching for the perfect opportunity, Halloween is a timely option.
Not only can you imitate one of the show's iconic styles, you can really
go all out: hair, makeup, candy cigarettes, maybe even a homemade SCDP
business card. Here are three Halloween looks inspired by Mad Men -- make
sure you tweet @MadMen_AMC with a picture of your costume triumph!

The Youthquaker: Taking a cue from Megan's miniskirts and Sally's moon
boots, this costume is fun, flirty, and perfect for the dance floor.

Dress: You need a really short hemline for this look. If it's long enough
to pass a school dress code, it probably won't work here. Look for
baby-doll dresses with fluted or bell sleeves. This Alice + Olivia dress
combines the perfect '60s silhouette with a psychedelic pattern, but it's
about $400. If you're not shopping with Megan's budget, try this ASOS
version for $40 instead.

Accessories: Amazon sells $50 white shiny go-go boots, and Marc Jacobs has
a high-fashion version for about $640. Pair them with giant plastic
earrings and a candy-colored clutch. (Since it's Halloween, you can add a
Ring Pop, too!)

Makeup: Black liquid eyeliner, false black eyelashes, and nude lipstick
are mandatory! Try this Mad Men eye makeup tutorial from The Wall Street
Journal to get the look.

THE FIFTH AND FINAL SEASON OF “FRINGE” CONCLUDES WITH A TWO-HOUR SERIES FINALE, INCLUDING THE 100TH EPISODE, FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, ON FOX

Climactic Nine-Episode Countdown Continues with an All-New Episode Tonight

As the Fringe team fights for humanity’s future in the fifth and final season, the imaginative journey toward the end of the acclaimed series will culminate in a climactic conclusion during the two-hour final-two-episodes event Friday, Jan. 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. This milestone date will also celebrate the series’ 100th episode.

Series Co-Creator and Executive Producer J.J. Abrams reflected on the show’s run: “It has been an absolute honor to have been a part of the weird and wonderful world of FRINGE. I will always owe the cast and crew for pouring their hearts and souls into every dimension of this series. Creating the show with Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman was a joy, but watching it evolve over the years into such an imaginative, insane and heartbreaking ride is nothing less than a thrill. I am grateful to our blessed fans, and to Kevin Reilly and Peter Rice and everyone at the glorious Fox network for allowing FRINGE to reach its bittersweet conclusion.”

Executive producer and showrunner J. H. Wyman said, “Above all else, from the bottom of my heart, I would like to personally thank everyone involved with FRINGE. From the most amazing fans, to our incredible cast, writers and crew, and our wonderful partners at FOX and Warner Bros. – we would not be here without you. It simply cannot be overstated how grateful I am for the ongoing and unconditional support we have received over the past five seasons. It has been both mind-blowing and humbling. I’ve always been a fan of science fiction, and to be able to tell this story about a family – a family that, through everything, fought together for survival – has been a highlight of my career. As we approach the final chapter, I can hardly believe it, and I’m just truly thankful for this unparalleled experience.”

“FRINGE has truly imagined the impossibilities over its five seasons and will go down in the books as one of FOX’s most riveting and creatively brilliant series,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “It has been a blast to work with J.J., Joel and their masterful creative teams, as well as with Anna, Josh and John and the rest of the most talented cast and crew in the business.”

Throughout FRINGE’s thrilling five seasons, the series has followed Special Agent OLIVIA DUNHAM (Anna Torv), enlisted institutionalized “fringe” scientist WALTER BISHOP (John Noble) and his globe-trotting, jack-of-all-trades son, PETER (Joshua Jackson) as the Fringe team explored mysterious occurrences linked between parallel universes, doppelgängers, Observers and unimaginable threats. The unlikely trio supervised by Special Agent PHILLIP BROYLES (Lance Reddick) and assisted by ASTRID FARNSWORTH (Jasika Nicole) – often led them to science and technological corporation Massive Dynamic, founded by WILLIAM BELL (guest star Leonard Nimoy), and its enigmatic chief executive, NINA SHARP (Blair Brown).

The fifth and final flash-forward season of FRINGE is set in 2036, when the “Observers” have become ruthless rulers of a dystopian society. As the battle for the world’s future continues to unfold, the Fringe team is in the midst of making its final stand to save humanity. In the aftermath of the devastating loss of Peter and Olivia’s daughter, ETTA (guest star Georgina Haig), the intensity escalates as the combat continues and Peter makes a pivotal and game-changing move in the all-new “An Origin Story” episode airing tonight (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Created by J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, FRINGE is produced by Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Abrams, Bryan Burk and J.H. Wyman serve as executive producers, while Akiva Goldsman is a consulting producer. “Like” FRINGE on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Fringe .

add to leverage page and interview

For five years, television's coolest gang of con artists have used their unique skills to help level the playing field for people whose lives have been destroyed by the rich and powerful. This winter, things are going to get personal as TNT's hit series Leverage returns with five brand new episodes. Leverage is set to begin its winter run Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) and I'll be interviewing actress Beth Riesgraf and actor Aldis Hodge Nov. 7
Leverage focuses on a team of five top-notch specialists out to give everyday people a helping hand against the machinations of corrupt bigwigs. Leading the crew is mastermind Nate Ford (Timothy Hutton), a former insurance investigator whose son died when his employer refused to pay for life-saving surgery. Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman) is the team's resident grifter, a brilliant con artist who shares a long and complicated history with Nate ­ both professionally and romantically. Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane) provides muscle as the team's bone-crunching retrieval specialist with a passion for gourmet cooking and a soft spot for the underdog. Gadget and technology wizard Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge) provides the team with everything from communications and video surveillance to target dossiers and virtual environments, rarely getting the credit he feels he deserves. And Parker (Beth Riesgraf) is the team's thief, a slightly off-center charmer who gets giddy at the thought of rappelling off a building or cracking an unbreakable safe.
Since premiering in 2008, Leverage has been a solid hit, averaging more than 3.8 million viewers in its fifth season, with 1.4 million adults 18-49 and 1.7 million adults 25-54.

Bios:

Beth Riesgraf

Riesgraf began her acting career by taking guest-starring roles on numerous shows such as Without a Trace, NCIS, How I Met Your Mother, and My Name Is Earl. On the big screen, Riesgraf starred opposite Giovanni Ribisi in the silent independent film The White Door. She also appeared in the film Alvin and the Chipmunks and the independent feature, Nobody.

In addition to acting, Riesgraf is a professional photographer and filmmaker. In 2003, Riesgraf received critical acclaim for her short America Motel with Jason Lee and photographer Alex Prager, based on a two-week road trip across America. In November 2011, Riesgraf was selected to write, direct and produce an Alice in Wonderland-themed short entitled A Standard Story. The film was created for Swedish apparel giant We are the Superlative Conspiracy (WeSC) to help promote their new line of wallets, passport holders and luggage tags being made exclusively for The Standard Hotel. WeSC named her a ³WeActivist² in 2004 for her natural talent for photography and the arts. Her photos and short films have been exhibited in London, New York and Los Angeles and published in numerous publications including Athem, Nylon, Mean, Angeleno, GQ, Jane and Men's Journal. A Standard Story went on to receive wonderful critical acclaim and praise, subsequently winning Best of Show and two awards of excellence in Creativity/Originality and Actress in the Best Shorts Competition 2012.

When she isn¹t leaping through windows or repelling down buildings in Portland with the Leverage crew, Riesgraf can be found in Los Angeles spending time with her son. In her free time, Riesgraf enjoys cooking, baking and the outdoors.

Aldis Hodge

Aldis Hodge started his acting career at the age of 3, when he went on a print job with his brother and was chosen for an ad in Essence magazine. At the age of 9, Hodge was cast in the Tony-winning revival of Showboat on Broadway. During that period, he also appeared in several movies, including Die Hard with a Vengeance and Bed of Roses.

Hodge headed to Los Angeles to continue his acting career and quickly landed several recurring television roles, including the role of Voodoo on Friday Night Lights. He has appeared in such shows as Castle, Supernatural, Girlfriends, American Dreams and City of Angels. Other TV appearances include Bones, CSI, ER, Cold Case, Charmed, Boston Public and most recently The Forgotten and Private Practice.

Hodge¹s movie credits include the independent The Stone House, Edmond, the Coen brothers¹ remake of The Lady Killers and Big Momma¹s House. In addition to acting, Hodge writes scripts for film and television. He also designs watches and is actively pursuing his own watch company.

LIFETIME ORIGINAL MOVIE She made them do it, STARRING jenna dewan tatum, Set to premiere december 29, 2012

Movie Based on a True Story

Also Co-stars Mackenzie Phillips

LOS ANGELES, CA (November 9, 2012) - Lifetime will premiere the Original Movie She Made Them Do It, starring Jenna Dewan Tatum (American Horror Story, Step Up) and Mackenzie Phillips (NYPD Blue, One Day at a Time), on Saturday, December 29, at 8:00pm ET/PT. The riveting film is based a true story of convicted felon Sarah Pender, who after being found guilty of masterminding a double murder, escaped from maximum security prison to become one of the most notorious women ever to top the list of America's Most Wanted.

She Made Them Do It follows the twisted life of Sarah Pender (Dewan Tatum) a charismatic, intelligent young woman who would become one of the country's most sought after fugitives. Purportedly on the road to a productive and successful life after being abandoned by her mother at the age of three, Sarah enrolls in college. While she was dealing drugs out of her home with her boyfriend Rick Hull as a means to pay for school, Sarah's two roommates are tragically shot to death in what appeared to be a deal gone bad. Although she claimed she was not home when the murders occurred, all evidence pointed to Sarah and Rick, and she was eventually found guilty of masterminding the double murder and sentenced to 110 years in prison. A model inmate studying law in hopes of appealing her case while also helping fellow convicts with their cases, Sarah becomes increasingly desperate as her appeals continue to be denied. At the end of her wits, she uses her charm to seduce a prison guard and convince former cellmate Jamie Long (Phillips) to help her escape, leading authorities on an intense search that attracts national attention and puts her on the top of the list of America's Most Wanted.

She Made Them Do It is produced by Front Street Pictures Inc. and They Made Us Do It Entertainment. Brenda Friend (Joan of Arc, Deck the Halls) and Greg Klein (Lifetime's America's Most Wanted) serve as executive producers and Harvey Kahn (Lifetime's Restless Virgins and Abducted: The Carlina White Story) produces. Grant Harvey (Heartland and LMN's Held Hostage) directs from a script written by Gary Tieche (Medium and LMN's Seven Deadly Sins).

TNT's hit series LEVERAGE is returning with five brand new action-packed episodes beginning on Tuesday, November 27th at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

Title: "The Low Low Price Job" Written by: Rebecca Kirsch

Air Date: 11/27/12

Directed by: Tawnia McKiernan

The Leverage crew sabotages a new big-box megastore in order to stop it from destroying a small town.

TV's Favorite Con Artists Prepare to Steal Christmas and More In Five All-New Episodes of TNT's Leverage

Winter Episodes Begin Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

For five years, television's coolest gang of con artists have used their unique skills to help level the playing field for people whose lives have been destroyed by the rich and powerful. This winter, things are going to get personal as TNT's hit series Leverage returns with five brand new episodes. Academy Award* winner Timothy Hutton stars in this clever and compelling drama, along with Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf and Aldis Hodge. Leverage is set to begin its winter run Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), following an all-new episode of Rizzoli & Isles.

Leverage focuses on a team of five top-notch specialists out to give everyday people a helping hand against the machinations of corrupt bigwigs. Leading the crew is mastermind Nate Ford (Hutton), a former insurance investigator whose son died when his employer refused to pay for life-saving surgery. Sophie Devereaux (Bellman) is the team's resident grifter, a brilliant con artist who shares a long and complicated history with Nate - both professionally and romantically. Eliot Spencer (Kane) provides muscle as the team's bone-crunching retrieval specialist with a passion for gourmet cooking and a soft spot for the underdog. Gadget and technology wizard Alec Hardison (Hodge) provides the team with everything from communications and video surveillance to target dossiers and virtual environments, rarely getting the credit he feels he deserves. And Parker (Riesgraf) is the team's thief, a slightly off-center charmer who gets giddy at the thought of rappelling off a building or cracking an unbreakable safe.

With the rallying cry, "Let's go steal a...," Nate and his team set out each week to tackle corrupt executives, politicians and other big shots by taking something they hold dear. The team has since "stolen" everything from an airplane to a baseball stadium. They've even stolen a country. And this winter, they're going to steal something they've never gone after before: a man's dreams.

Winter will also pit the Leverage crew against the ruthless manager of a discount store whose tactics threaten not only her employees but also the town itself. They'll target a corrupt winery owner whose workers are collapsing. And in a special holiday episode, the team will try to steal Christmas in order to prevent an unscrupulous toy company CEO from unleashing a dangerous product into the market. In addition, the team will once again face their nemesis, insurance-investigator-turned-InterPOL-agent Jim Sterling (guest star Mark Sheppard).

With each and every case they handle, Nate, Sophie, Elliott, Hardison and Parker prove themselves to be more than just a league of extraordinary con artists. They are a family. But in Leverage's gripping season finale, the bond that holds this family together could be torn apart permanently with an extremely risky case involving the death of Nate's son.

Since premiering in 2008, Leverage has been a solid hit, averaging more than 3.8 million viewers in its fifth season, with 1.4 million adults 18-49 and 1.7 million adults 25-54. Leverage is executive-produced by Dean Devlin (Independence Day, TNT's The Librarian movie series) and creators John Rogers (Transformers) and Chris Downey (The King of Queens). The series is produced for TNT by Devlin's Electric Entertainment.

TVGM: Grey's Anatomy Spoilers! Wedding Bells for Bailey & RIP Adele

TV Guide Magazine sat down with Chandra Wilson (Dr. Miranda Bailey) and Loretta Devine (Adele Webber) and got the inside scoop on* *Dr. Miranda Bailey's wedding, and the death of Alzheimer's-stricken Adele Bailey.

Wedding Bells for Bailey? http://www.tvguide.com/News/Greys-Anatomy-Wedding-1056861.aspx  "Bailey is not participating," explains Wilson of the nuptials, set for the madcap December 13th episode. "She already had a wedding with her first husband, so she's not excited to make the same vows in front of the same people again. Plus, she has a lot of patients in the hospital. It's a particularly hectic time for her to get whisked off to a wedding. People might show up, but Bailey's priorities get diverted." It's up to her friends (like Christina, Callie and Richard) and family to get her to the church on time. "Christina says the reason she agreed to her own ceremony is because she knew it was important to Owen. And the Chief talks to Bailey about how nervous he was when he married Adele and that he regrets spending so much time at work when he could have been savoring his relationship."

R.I.P., Adele http://www.tvguide.com/News/Kecks-Exclusives-Greys-Anatomy-Adele-Loretta-Devine-1056866.aspx  Loretta Devine has wrapped up her Emmy winning role as Alzheimer's-stricken Adele Webber, with her final two episodes set to air in December and January. "The whole time we were doing it, I just kept saying 'Just shoot me!' Devine says of her emotionally taxing scenes. "It was so painful." And the pain will endure for Devine, who isn't happy that Adele's death allows her widower, Richard, to pursue a full-on relationship with Dr. Catherine Avery (Debbie Allen). "Every day, I said, 'Can I please come back to haunt her?" jokes Devine. "Meredith's dead mother comes back on the show all the time, and there was that one dead guy [Denny] who stayed on as a ghost forever."

Fairhaven Starring Chris Messina, Sarah Paulson, Tom O'Brien & Rich Sommer Opens Jan 11

FAIRHAVEN

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNC7fpK-9rs 

Opens January 11 in theaters

Available on VOD starting January 15

FAIRHAVEN stars Chris Messina (Argo, HBO's The Newsroom, Fox's The Mindy Project), Rich Sommer (AMC's Mad Men), Sarah Paulson (FX's American Horror Story) & Tom O'Brien. Written & Directed by Tom O'Brien, from a story by O'Brien & Chris Messina.

Set in a small fishing village on the Massachusetts coast, “Fairhaven,” part comedy, part drama is the story of three friends, reunited for a father’s funeral.

Jon (O’Brien), a former high school football star and one time college athlete, has landed back in the place of his youth – Fairhaven – a small fishing village on the Massachusetts coast. At a crossroads in his life, Jon looks for purpose and meaning in everything and through everything…from therapy to meditation. He is inspired by a 60 Minutes interview with his football hero, Tom Brady, who proclaims that, even after three super bowl wins, “There’s got to be something more than this.” If his hero can’t have it all, how can he? Although he wrestles with the idea, he finds it oddly reassuring.

A single father, Sam (Sommer) never left town. Of the three friends, he is the most responsible, and the most content, even though he is secretly still in love with his ex-wife Kate (Paulson), the girl everyone loved in high school.

Jon and Sam are awaiting the return of their best friend from high school, Dave, who is returning to Fairhaven for the first time in ten years for the funeral of his estranged father.

Dave (Messina) is the one that got out. Ten years later, when he returns for his father’s funeral, he is forced to revisit everything he ran away from. Although he portrays himself as living an easy-going life out West, troubles bubble under the surface. No matter how far he goes, he can’t escape himself.

Struggling to find their way, after a weekend together, the three friends realize that whatever life brings them, they will always have each other and it will always be good to go home.

Mad Men | Interview with Frank Ockenfels, Gallery Photographer

http://t.email.amctv.com/a/10708/b/74477/c/232525/d/1/e/1/u/564139504

Q&A - Frank Ockenfels (Gallery Photographer)

Frank Ockenfels is the photographer for AMC's original series key art and gallery photography. In this exclusive interview with AMCtv.com, he reveals the key to capturing a character's personality in one frame and talks about happy accidents on set.

Q: You've shot a number of AMC shows: Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, The Killing, and Hell on Wheels. Which show was your first?

A: I first did Mad Men, and I was asked to work on The Killing and Hell on Wheels. I was asked then to do Breaking Bad and, while we were on Breaking Bad, there was a conversation about working on The Walking Dead. I did all five shows last year. As a photographer, you shoot a lot of things and sometimes it's just the same thing over and over. I like when everything is different, so I've been very lucky working with AMC.

Q: How much do you know about a show's upcoming season when you shoot the art for it? Is it tougher for Mad Men because it's so under wraps?

A: They tell us the year and then it stops! [Laughs] Matthew Weiner is amazing because he really does like to keep it a secret, which is great, and I think it makes it a challenge. That's the fun part -- it's kind of like being on a treasure hunt.

Q: What is the creative process for the key art shoots? How is it different for the gallery photography shoots?

A: With the key art, you're fleshing it out and trying to make it bigger and bigger. You're really polishing an amazing idea that's been handed to you. With the gallery, you're doing these scenarios and you're trying to tell stories, but subtly. We've always tried to shoot pictures that feel "of the time."

Mad Men Producers Receive Fourth PGA Nomimation


TNT's Southland Hits the Streets of L.A. as Production Begins on Season Five

Acclaimed Drama to Launch New Season in February


Production began last week on the fifth season of the TNT police drama Southland. The critically acclaimed series from Warner Bros. Television and John Wells Productions stars Michael Cudlitz, Shawn Hatosy, Regina King and Ben McKenzie. Joining the ranks as a series regular this season will be former guest star C. Thomas Howell. In addition, Dorian Missick, Emily Bergl and L. Scott Caldwell will return as recurring guest stars, and Chad Michael Murray is set to guest-star in a two-episode arc.

Season Five of Southland is slated to premiere Wednesday, February 13, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), exclusively on TNT. The series continues in its regular timeslot on Tuesday nights at 10 p.m.

Hi-res image: http://tntnewsroom.com/southland-photo-gallery/

Since premiering in 2009, Southland has redefined the police drama with its raw, authentic look at the lives and work of Los Angeles detectives and beat cops. Shot on location in the streets and neighborhoods of Los Angeles, Southland captures a realistic, natural environment where similar situations can and often do occur in real life.

In Southland, Cudlitz plays Officer John Cooper, a recovering addict who, this season, starts to wonder what he has really accomplished after more than 20 years on the force. Hatosy plays Officer Sammy Bryant, a detective-turned-beat-cop facing a whole new set of problems with his estranged wife. King plays Detective Lydia Adams, who meets probably the biggest challenge of her life - becoming a mother. And McKenzie is Officer Ben Sherman, whose growing maturity as a cop brings a darker attitude and increased tension between him and his partner, Sammy.

Now a series regular, four-season veteran Howell plays Officer "Dewey" Dudek, a recovering alcoholic who revels in his unpredictable behavior and off-color remarks. Missick reprises his recurring role from last season as Detective Ruben Robinson, who provides some experienced parental insight for his partner, Lydia. Bergl will return as Tammi Bryant, who has brought nothing but trouble upon her soon-to-be ex-husband, Sammy. Caldwell will return in her recurring role as Lydia's caring but sometimes intrusive mother. And Murray is set to appear in a two-episode arc as Dave Mendoza, a likable cop who is a bit of a loose cannon and whose off-duty behavior may not always be the best influence on Ben.

The fourth season of Southland averaged more than 2.9 million viewers. The show grew its delivery of adults 18-49 by +3% over the previous season to 1.3 million. The show also averaged 1.4 million adults 25-54, a +2% boost over season three.

Southland was created by Emmy® winner Ann Biderman (NYPD Blue, Public Enemies) and is executive-produced by Emmy® winners Christopher Chulack (ER, Third Watch) and John Wells (ER, The West Wing, Shameless). Chulack is also a primary director of the series, while Jonathan Lisco (

FOX BOOKS “MURDER POLICE” WITH 13-EPISODE ORDER

New Animated Comedy to Debut During 2013-2014 Season

FOX has picked up MURDER POLICE, a new animated comedy that follows a
dedicated, but inept detective and his colleagues – some perverted, some
corrupt, some just plain lazy – in a twisted city precinct. David A.
Goodman (FAMILY GUY) and Jason Ruiz – one of the writers/ animators
discovered through the Fox Inkubation program – created the series, which
is expected to debut during the 2013-2014 season.

“David and Jason came to us with a really fresh take on law enforcement
that we’ve never seen before,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of
Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “With MURDER POLICE, these guys
are taking a staple genre of television – the cop show – and turning it on
its head by pushing the warped comedic boundaries that only animation can
offer. It’s the kind of show our Animation Domination fans will absolutely
love, and I can’t wait to introduce it next season.”

MANUEL SANCHEZ (voiced by co-creator Ruiz) aspires to be a good cop, but
his efforts to solve crimes are constantly put in jeopardy by his own
clumsiness and the incompetence of his fellow detectives, including his
partner, TOMMY MARGARETTI (Will Sasso, “The Three Stooges,” “MADtv”), a
tough, rule-breaking “bad cop” who can't interrogate a suspect without
beating him up.

Voice actors on the pilot include Jason Ruiz as MANUEL and MARIO SANCHEZ,
Will Sasso as TOMMY MARGARETTI, Chi McBride (“Hawthorne,” “Human Target”)
as RANDALL HICKOX, Horatio Sanz (“Saturday Night Live”) as DONEL, Penny
Marshall (“Life & Times of Tim,” “Laverne & Shirley”) as SYLVIA
GOLDENBERG, Peter Atencio (“Key and Peele”) as CAPTAIN JOHN RUSHOUR and
Justina Machado (“Private Practice,” “Six Feet Under”) as ROSA SANCHEZ.

MURDER POLICE is created and written by David A. Goodman (FAMILY GUY) and
Jason Ruiz. Goodman serves as executive producer and Ruiz is co-executive
producer. The series is produced at Bento Box Animation for Twentieth
Century Fox Television.

HOT FROM FOX: FOX Orders Pilot for New Drama RAKE, Starring Greg Kinnear

FOX ORDERS PILOT FOR NEW DRAMA “RAKE”

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE AND EMMY AWARD WINNER GREG KINNEAR TO STAR IN LEAD ROLE

Character-Driven Drama Executive-Produced By Peter Duncan, Peter Tolan and Michael Wimer

Kicking off its drama pilot orders, Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) has given a pilot order to RAKE, a character-driven comedic drama by Peter Duncan (creator of the original Australian series) and executive-produced by Peter Tolan (“Rescue Me,” “Analyze This”) and Michael Wimer (“2012”). Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Greg Kinnear (“Little Miss Sunshine,” “The Kennedys”) has been cast in the lead role of KEEGAN JOYE, a brilliant, but self-destructive criminal defense lawyer. Kinnear also will co-executive-produce.

Based on the Australian AACTA nominee for Best Television Drama Series, RAKE follows the chaotic and comedic life of criminal defense lawyer KEEGAN JOYE (Kinnear). Brilliant, frustratingly charming, and with zero filter, Keegan is one of life's great addicts. His staggering lack of discretion and inability to self-censor land him the cases that nobody else wants, but behind that lies a resolute optimism and belief in justice that fuel his dogged determination to defend those who seem beyond redemption. In addition to Keegan’s cases within the justice system, the show follows his personal trials and tribulations, including his ongoing battle against the IRS, his mounting debt to his bookie, overlapping affairs and liaisons with women, a hormonal son, an exhausted ex-wife and the evolving relationship between his two married best friends, Ben and Scarlett.

Greg Kinnear received an Academy Award nomination for his work in the 1997 film “As Good as It Gets.” His recent role on “Modern Family” earned him a 2012 Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. For his performance as John F. Kennedy in the cable miniseries “The Kennedys,” he was nominated for 2011 Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie. In 1995, Kinnear and the producers of cable’s “Talk Soup” won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Class Program.

In 2006, Kinnear starred in the Academy Award-nominated film “Little Miss Sunshine.” Other film credits include “Thin Ice,” “Green Zone,” “Flash of Genius,” “Ghost Town,” “Baby Mama,” “Feast of Love,” Invincible,” “Fast Food Nation,” “Bad News Bears,” “Stuck On You,” “Auto Focus,” “The Gift,” “Nurse Betty” and “You’ve Got Mail.” He will next be seen in Josh Boone’s “Writers,” co-starring Jennifer Connelly, Kristen Bell and Lily Collins. The film premiered at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival. He also has completed production on Craig Zisk’s “The English Teacher,” co-starring Julianne Moore, Lily Collins and Nathan Lane. RAKE is Kinnear’s first network drama pilot.

RAKE is produced by Sony Pictures Television, Fedora Entertainment and Essential Media & Entertainment Pty Ltd. The pilot is created and written by Peter Duncan. The pilot is executive-produced by Duncan, Peter Tolan, Michael Wimer, Richard Roxburgh (“Rake,” “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1219342/ ) and Ian Collie (“Rake”).

New Two-Hour PBS Special - How Sherlock Changed the World

HOW SHERLOCK CHANGED THE WORLD EXPLORES THE IMPACT OF THE LEGENDARY DETECTIVE ON CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION

- Two-Hour Special Assessing the Influence of the Fictional Detective on Real Forensic Techniques Slated for Fall 2013 on PBS -

PASADENA, CA; JANUARY 14, 2013 - Today at the Television Critics Association meeting, PBS announced the premiere of HOW SHERLOCK CHANGED THE WORLD, a two-hour special about the world's most legendary fictional detective - Sherlock Holmes. The special will reveal for the first time the astonishing impact that Holmes has had on the development of real criminal investigation and forensic techniques. The program is slated to premiere in fall 2013 on PBS.

Sherlock Holmes is, without doubt, the most famous fictional detective the world has ever known. HOW SHERLOCK CHANGED THE WORLD will show that Conan Doyle's hero not only revolutionized the world of fiction, but also changed the real world in more ways than many realize. Holmes was a scientist who used chemistry, fingerprints and bloodstains to catch an offender in an era when eyewitness reports and "smoking gun" evidence were needed to convict criminals, and police incompetence meant that Jack the Ripper stalked the streets freely. In many ways, the modern detective can be seen as a direct extension of Conan Doyle's literary genius.

"We are delighted to bring this exclusive special about Sherlock Holmes to PBS," said Beth Hoppe, Chief Programming Executive and General Manager of General Audience Programming for PBS. "HOW SHERLOCK CHANGED THE WORLD takes Conan Doyle's creation from fiction to reality, revealing the real-life importance of Holmes as a revolutionary crime fighter."

"It is clear, especially of late, the lasting impact that Holmes has had, both nationally and internationally," added Trish Powell, Executive Producer at Love Productions, the studio behind the special. "The worldwide success of the BBC drama on MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! and recent box-office hits Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows have proven Holmes to be a timeless source of entertainment. With this recent resurgence of interest, it is a perfect time to present this Sherlock Holmes special that demonstrates how the character was a catalyst for meaningful advancement and change in the field of criminal investigation and forensic science."

Through the use of compelling archival material and reconstruction, HOW SHERLOCK CHANGED THE WORLD tells the true stories of the scientists, detectives and even criminals who were inspired or influenced by the legend of Holmes. The program explores real crimes that were solved thanks to a piece of equipment Holmes used, a technique he popularized or invented, or even his method of reasoning. The special will also assess the history of Holmes' techniques from the 1880s to the present, showing how the scientific techniques Holmes introduced to the world have evolved into the stunning CSI-style forensic labs of Scotland Yard and the FBI.

"Sherlock Holmes is the grandfather of forensic science," states top forensic scientist Dr. Henry Lee. "Today when I go to a crime scene I use his logic, his method of deduction. That's how we do it today, solving cases based on Sherlock Holmes' logic."

HOW SHERLOCK CHANGED THE WORLD will demonstrate how the legacy of Holmes, as the first crime profiler, was not solely a reservoir of brilliant stories and wonderfully drawn characters, but that it has saved lives and led to the capture of some of the worst criminals in modern history.

Q&A - Charlie Hofheimer (Abe Drexler)

In this interview for AMCtv.com, Charlie Hofheimer, who plays Abe Drexler on AMC's Mad Men, discusses daydreaming about Abe and Peggy's future and getting recognized by Gary Oldman.

Q: When Abe was first introduced as a love interest for Peggy, what did you know about where their story was going?

A: Nothing! In the audition for the part, the character names had all been changed to deliberately obscure what scene this was, where it took place, and who was involved... So I knew very little.

Q: When did you start to realize you were going to be around for longer?

A: When I read the script for when Abe [proposes the] move-in with Peggy, maybe that was the first moment when I started to daydream about what might be or what could be between Peggy and Abe. I think I probably giggled like a girl and maybe ran around in place.

Q: Did you research the '60s counterculture in preparation for your role?

A: Quite a bit. And it just so happens that my best friend in the world from pre-school, his father is Wayne Barrett, who was the head political writer for The Village Voice for thirty years...so I grew up with a surrogate father who was a bull-nosed investigative journalist -- somebody like Abe. I think I've had a good model.

A&E's #1 ORIGINAL SERIES

WARNER BROS. HOME ENTERTAINMENT GROUP WILL RELEASE LONGMIRE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON ON DVD ON MAY 28, 2013

"Longmire is the best of two worlds: a modern crime drama with dry wit and sometimes heart-wrenching emotion that's also got a glorious setting under the big sky of Wyoming." - The Wall Street Journal

BURBANK, CA (February 20, 2013) - Betrayal. Dedication. Grief. Ambition. Under Wyoming's Big Sky country, one unstoppable sheriff is forced to bury personal tragedies behind a brave face while attempting to rebuild his life and career and keep the peace in an often wild and lawless land. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group will release the contemporary western Longmire: The Complete First Season on May 28, 2013, timed to the Season Two broadcast premiere on A&E. Longmire: The Complete First Season will be priced to own at $39.98 SRP.

From the executive producers of hit shows including The Closer, Major Crimes and Nip/Tuck comes Longmire, which is based on the "Walt Longmire" series of mystery novels written by best-selling author Craig Johnson. In the debut season of this suspenseful series, Walt Longmire is a charismatic and unflappable Wyoming sheriff of Absaroka County and the world-weary yet dedicated lead character. Struggling with his wife's death a year ago and at the urging of his attorney daughter, Walt knows he must turn his life around. Aided by his loyal female deputy and his oldest friend, he becomes reenergized about his job and runs for reelection against an ambitious younger deputy rival candidate. Set under Wyoming's Big Sky country, Longmire must investigate a series of major crimes in his jurisdiction. Season One of Longmire stars actors Robert Taylor, Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips, Bailey Chase, Cassidy Freeman and Adam Bartley.

In its premiere season, Longmire was A&E's most-watched original series in the network's history with over 4 million viewers and ranked #1 in its time slot with Men 25-54.

"Longmire brings a Western edge to the contemporary crime drama. The complex characters and intriguing mysteries set in a spectacular landscape makes this one of the most original new dramas on air," said Rosemary Markson, Senior Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing of Warner Bros Home Entertainment Group. "We are thrilled to release Longmire: The Complete First Season on DVD."

Q&A - Peyton List (Jane Sterling)

In this interview, Peyton List, who plays Jane Sterling on AMC's Mad Men, describes acting as if on she were on a psychedelic and her new-found obsession with girdles.

Q: Your clothing was very glamorous this season, particularly the "Goddess Pantsuit" you wore to the LSD party. Do you have a favorite Jane costume?

A: I don't have a favorite outfit because I feel like Janie Bryant outdoes herself every episode. When I saw the "Goddess Pantsuit" it was in a fitting, and I knew we were getting out of one period of history into another. I was just kind of floored. I said, "Let me put that on, please!"

Q: What was your reaction when you first read the script with the LSD scene?

A: It was so different than any other episode of Mad Men. It was almost like its own little stand-alone movie. Going into it, I didn't know how we were going to shoot it with Roger's hallucinations, but it turned out so amazing.

Q: What's the trick to acting like you're on a psychedelic drug?

A: You just kind of have to guess. They have on paper what you're experiencing, so you're just giving yourself over to actually experiencing it and believing that you're seeing things that aren't there. We had a really good time with it. And lots and lots of laughs for sure.

TBS Orders New Late-Night Comedy Series Starring Pete Holmes

Series From Conaco to Air After CONAN Beginning in Fall 2013

TBS has ordered a four-week run of a new untitled late-night comedy series starring popular comedian Pete Holmes and produced by Conaco LLC, the company behind the late-night hit CONAN. Plans call for the new Pete Holmes series to launch in fall 2013 and air four nights a week (Monday-Thursday) at midnight (ET/PT), following CONAN. The show is executive-produced by Jeff Ross, David Kissinger, Nick Bernstein, Dave Rath and Conan O'Brien.

Taped before a live studio audience, TBS's new Pete Holmes series will showcase the comedian's incredible skill set, combining sketches, short films, live comedy, field pieces and in-studio guest interviews into a fast-paced half hour.

Named one of Variety's Top 10 Comics to Watch, Holmes hosts the You Made It Weird podcast, which has been downloaded nearly 6 million times and was named one of the Top Ten Podcasts of 2012 by both The Onion AV Club and Paste magazine. Holmes has also starred in a series of hugely popular Batman parodies on the website CollegeHumor. And he provides the voice of the e*trade baby.

"Pete Holmes is an enormously likable performer with an agile and innovative mind," said executive producer Conan O'Brien. "I'm really looking forward to his show, and I've already had my son program my DVR."

"Pete is a phenomenal talent with a truly unique point of view," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "He has just the right comic sensibility and style we're looking for to follow CONAN in our late-night lineup."

Pete Holmes added, "The first half of my meeting with Conan was spent making sure this wasn't all part of a new TBS prank show called You Got Coned! The second half was spent expressing my sincerest enthusiasm and gratitude for this incredible dream come true."

Q&A - Larisa Oleynik (Cynthia Cosgrove)

In this interview, Larisa Oleynik, who plays Cynthia Cosgrove on AMC's Mad Men, reveals her own secret hobby and describes getting recognized as "Mrs. Cosgrove."

Q: You've been on the show since Season 4, but we really saw a lot of you in Season 5. How did you get involved in Mad Men?

A: I'd been in to audition for the show a couple of times for different characters and different guest spots... And when I originally auditioned for Cynthia, I had no idea whose fiancee I was actually playing. So that was a really fun surprise.

Q: What was it like meeting Aaron Staton, your on-screen husband, for the first time?

A: I was incredibly nervous the first day on set, but he automatically made me really comfortable. Our chemistry is great in that it really completely and only 100% exists as our characters. And as soon as they call the scene, I'm like, "So, tell me about the baby." [Laughs] I couldn't ask for a better on-screen husband.

Q: You were a teen star in The Secret Life of Alex Mack in the '90s. How has being cast in Mad Men changed your career?

A: When people recognize me from Mad Men specifically, it's just the coolest feeling... I don't really know if I'm being seen differently, but I know that, just in terms of confidence, it has helped immensely... After a long round of trying to establish myself as an adult actor, booking this job, I was like, "Yes! They don't hire bad actors on Mad Men." It was huge sigh of relief.

Q&A - Vincent Kartheiser (Pete Campbell)

In this interview, Vincent Kartheiser, (Pete Campbell on AMC's Mad Men) discusses what makes him good at fight scenes and the most shocking thing Pete's ever done.

Q: Pete has sideburns! Are those real?

A: Yeah, they're real. I grew them on the off-season just for fun and the show kept them.

Q: You've been shaving your hairline for the role. What was it like going out in public like that?

A: I would just go out in public. It was like nothing... It's not like anyone looks at you differently if you're balding.

Q: John Slattery says, you two get along famously off-screen. What's it like having to play up tension between your characters on camera?

A: Let me just start off by saying he gets along famously with everybody... He's a charming son-of-a-bitch and everybody loves him. I can't resist him, as much as I try to, and what's it like working with him and hating him as a human being, as Pete Campbell? It's actually quite easy, because disliking someone that everyone finds charming and funny...everything that they say just grates on you... It's quite fun actually, getting to listen to him make the room laugh and that hurting me to my core and making me want to just destroy him even more.

PSYCH Star James Roday and Series Creator/Executive Producer Steve Franks
(Finally!) Join Twitter and Will Tweet For The First Time During The Panel
SAN DIEGO– July 18, 2013 – PSYCH-O’S have spoken! USA Network today unveiled the victor of the first-ever PSYCH fan vote determining the storyline of a new episode for PSYCH’s eighth season. The announcement was made at Comic-Con, during the network’s fifth annual PSYCH panel discussion. PSYCH-O’s came out in full force, with “A Nightmare on State Street” racking up more than 50% of votes to make it the indisputable champion. From acclaimed director and series star, James Roday ("Mr. Yin Presents…", "Heeeeere's Lassie"), comes a new vision in terror, where an exhausted Gus (Dulé Hill) enters dream therapy to understand the cause of his recent night terrors. But after dream therapy, nothing is ever again what it seems... He soon realizes that in dreams, no one can hear you scream! To see more of what’s in store for this season on PSYCH, the season eight trailer is available to view and download here.
Also announced today, “PSYCH: The Musical,” a two-hour special episode, will air Sunday, December 15, 2013. In this long-awaited special featuring Santa Barbara’s finest singing and dancing, Shawn (Roday) and Gus (Hill) dive into a world that's equal parts mystery and melody to track down an escaped playwright mad man, Z (Anthony Rapp, “Rent”), who, six years earlier, was deemed criminally insane after locking a critic in a back room of the theatre that he burnt to the ground. With little to go on and a fear that Z will kill again, Shawn, Gus and the SBPD are forced to consult with the one person Z confided in while in the institution...a dangerous and familiar villain from Shawn's past, who guides them using cryptic clues to reveal what Z is planning next. The musical was screened last night at Reading Cinemas in San Diego, where the cast arrived in Weinermobiles to greet fans and give a special introduction to the screening.

New Event Series 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY to Restart Iconic Clock in Summer 2014 on FOX
Date sent: Mon, 13 May

JACK IS BACK!!!

NEW ACTION-PACKED EVENT SERIES “24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY” TO RESTART ICONIC CLOCK IN SUMMER 2014 ON FOX

Kiefer Sutherland to Return as JACK BAUER in New Event Series Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and Howard Gordon’s Teakwood Lane Productions

FOX has ordered 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY, a thrilling new tent-pole event series set to restart the clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise starring Kiefer Sutherland. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and Howard Gordon’s Teakwood Lane Productions, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will make its historic debut in the summer of 2014 on FOX.

The announcement was made this morning by Kevin Reilly, Chairman, Fox Broadcasting Company; Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen, Twentieth Century Fox Television; and Brian Grazer, Chairman, Imagine Entertainment.

The high-octane saga will reunite showrunner Howard Gordon with Sutherland and retain the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and complex interweaving storylines, with 12 episodes representing 24 hours. The suspenseful event series once again follows the exploits of heroic agent JACK BAUER (Sutherland), who will resume his story several years following the events of the final season.

“It’s great to have Jack back. ‘24’ redefined the drama genre, and as we reimagine the television miniseries, this iconic show will again break new ground for the network,” said Reilly. “The series remains a global sensation, and everyone at FOX is thrilled to be back at work with Kiefer, Howard and the incredibly creative ‘24’ team.”

“When Howard came to us saying he had an idea for a new chapter of ‘24,’ he quite simply had us at ‘hello,’” remarked 20th Century Fox Television Chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden. “’24’ is a signature series for this studio, beloved by critics and audiences worldwide. Howard’s idea to revive the franchise as an event series couldn’t be timelier, and with the brilliant Kiefer Sutherland on board to reprise his iconic role, we can’t wait to get started.”

Added Imagine Television Chairman Brian Grazer, “I'm both excited and proud that Howard, Kiefer, and I, along with ours partners at 20th and Fox, have this new opportunity to give ‘24’ fans what they've been asking for – more Jack Bauer. It's been my experience that people love Jack Bauer because he's a guy who cuts through the red tape and gets the hardest things done. I am certain 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will again have a huge impact on our culture.”

“The response to ‘24’ is unlike anything I have ever experienced as an actor before,” noted Sutherland. “To have the chance to reunite with the character, Jack Bauer, is like finding a lost friend. The story ideas from Howard Gordon are exciting and fresh, and will not disappoint. Great thanks to 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and the FOX network for this opportunity. Make no mistake, my goal is to knock your socks off. See you soon.”

“Jack Bauer has always been an exciting, thrilling character, and I confess that I’ve missed him. I think the audience has too,” said executive producer Howard Gordon who served as showrunner for most of the series’ run and won multiple Emmy Awards for his work. “The character has evolved through the years, and this new and exciting event series format is perfect to tell the next chapter of his story and continue to reflect how the world is changing. Fans can rest assured that the Jack they know and love will be back.”

Originally premiering November 6, 2001, ‘24’ was nominated for a total of 73 Emmy Awards, winning for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006. Over eight seasons, Kiefer Sutherland garnered seven Emmy Award nominations and one win for Outstanding Lead Actor – Drama Series. While the series gained global recognition, Sutherland’s portrayal of the legendary character penetrated the American psyche like no other dramatic television character to become part of the cultural lexicon.

24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is a production of 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television in association with Teakwood Lane Productions. Howard Gordon, Brian Grazer and Kiefer Sutherland will executive produce, along with an additional team to be announced. The original series, which had its last American broadcast on May 24, 2010, was created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran.

USA Orders Comedy Pilot DIVIDE & CONQUER
Date sent: Fri, 24 May

USA NETWORK GREENLIGHTS ORIGINAL HALF HOUR COMEDY PILOT*

*“DIVIDE & CONQUER”*

*Follows Series Pickups For SIRENS and PLAYING HOUSE and Pilot Order
LOVE
IS DEAD*

*Top Television Comedy MODERN FAMILY Joins Network Lineup September 24*

*NEW YORK* – May 22, 2013 – USA Network today greenlit a new original
half
hour comedy pilot with an order for *DIVIDE & CONQUER* from executive
producer and writer Peter Ocko (*FAIRLY LEGAL*, “The Office,” “Pushing
Daisies”). The news comes on the heels of the network’s first comedy
series pickups for *SIRENS* and *PLAYING HOUSE* and a pilot order for
*LOVE
IS DEAD*. The network’s first original comedies are slated to premiere
in
first quarter 2014, following the launch of the award-winning and
top-rated
comedy *MODERN FAMILY*, on USA on *Tuesday, September 24 at 8/7c*.****

*DIVIDE & CONQUER* is a family comedy about love, support, attention and
all the other things parents do to mess up their kids. In a world where
failure is the new F-word, and normal is the new stupid, Ben and
Charlotte
are just hoping their kids make it out of the house someday. *DIVIDE &
CONQUER* gets into the heads of a big family: four children finding
their
way to adulthood in these complicated times, and the parents whose lives
they're sucking dry to get there. Written and executive produced by
Ocko,
the pilot is from Universal Cable Productions.****

From the distinct comedic point of view of Denis Leary (“Rescue Me”) and
Bob Fisher (“Wedding Crashers”), *SIRENS* follows three of Chicago’s
best
EMTs whose sometimes silly, self-righteous and even self-destructive
personalities make them unqualified for sustaining relationships,
friendships and most occupations. They are, however, uniquely qualified
for
saving anyone who winds up in their ambulance. Based on a UK format,
*SIRENS
* stars Michael Mosley (“Pan Am”), Kevin Daniels (“Modern Family”),
Jessica
McNamee (“The Vow”) and Kevin Bigley (“Game Change”). Leary and Fisher
co-wrote the pilot and both executive produce the series. Jim Serpico
("Rescue Me") of Apostle, and Hal Vogel, David Aukin (“Hyde Park on
Hudson”), and David Leach of Daybreak Pictures also executive produce.
Filmed on location in Chicago, the series is from Apostle and Fox
Television Studios, in conjunction with Daybreak Pictures. ****

*PLAYING HOUSE* is a single-camera buddy comedy about what happens when
two
best friends come back together, just when they need each other most.
The
original half-hour series is inspired by the ultra-close friendship
between
Jessica St. Clair (“Best Friends Forever”) and Lennon Parham (“Best
Friends
Forever”). In *PLAYING HOUSE*, when mother to-be Maggie (Parham) asks
her
single and career-driven best friend Emma (St. Clair) to return home
from
her job overseas to attend her baby shower, she has no idea what’s truly
in
store. Parham and St. Clair co-wrote the presentation and will executive
produce the series along with Scot Armstrong (“The Hangover: Part II”)
and
Ravi Nandan (“Animal Practice”) of American Work. The series is from
Universal Cable Productions and American Work.****

*LOVE IS DEAD* is a single-camera comedy pilot set at a unique company
that
specializes in breaking-up romantic relationships -- rationally,
compassionately, thoroughly -- on behalf of those who are willing to pay
to
not be around when it happens. It’s the unconventional romantic comedy
that asks: “Why, if love is so fickle, do we keep coming back for more?”
Written and executive produced by Zev Borow (“Chuck”), the pilot is from
Universal Cable Productions and Gaumont International Television. Katie
O’Connell, Elisa Roth, Sidonie Dumas and Christophe Riandee executive
produce for Gaumont International Television. The pilot is based on the
award-winning French short film of the same name, written and directed
by
Eric Capitaine and produced by Carole Lambert and Carine Ruszniewski of
De
Films Aiguille.****

The #1 network in all of basic cable for an unprecedented seven straight
years, USA Network is seen in over 102 million U.S. homes. USA is a
leader

Mad Men Interview | January Jones (Betty Francis)
Date sent: Mon, 20 May
May 20, 2013

Q&A - January Jones (Betty Francis)


In this interview, January Jones, (Betty Francis on AMC's Mad Men)
discusses parenting and her character's capacity for change.

Q: How did the public's reaction to Betty change after her challenges in
Season 5?

A: She became much more sympathetic when she got bigger. I think people
liked her again, which I find very interesting... When she's, you know,
trying to be independent or to better her own life, people have a negative
response to it. So, it seems like a very un-modern approach... I find it
very confusing at times.

Q: Matthew Weiner says one of the themes of Season 6 is whether or not
people can really change. Where do you stand on that?

A: I think it's very difficult to change, and I think that's what makes
all these characters so interesting is that everyone can relate to the
flaws in each character and the desire to change.

Q: Yet Betty's life is really different now than it was in Season 1. What
does that say about her ability to change?

A: Each season I think she's a little bit different, and she really does
make an effort to do that. If she can't change herself, she's trying to
change her circumstances... I just think she's one of those people where
she's never going to be truly satisfied and will kind of have that
character flaw where she's always wanting what she doesn't have.

GSN ANNOUNCES BROOKE BURNS AS HOST OF NEW ORIGINAL GAME SHOW “THE CHASE”

Joined by Mark “The Beast” Labbett, Notorious Chaser from the UK version of the New Original Series Produced by ITV Studios America

May 29, 2013 (Santa Monica, CA) — And THE CHASE is on! GSN announced today that it has signed actress and television host Brooke Burns as host of its new original series THE CHASE. Inspired by the hit UK show of the same name, THE CHASE is a one-hour quiz show in which three contestants battle in a fast-paced quiz competition against an all-knowing opponent, The Beast. THE CHASE will premiere on GSN in 2013.

“I am looking forward to being a part of this highly anticipated series,” said Burns. “The quick pace as the fiercely intelligent contestants battle it out with one of the smartest men in the world will truly make this show fast and furious.”

Joining Burns on the show as the formidable Beast is Mark Labbett. One of the original “Chasers” in the UK version, he’s been conquering opponents for six seasons and has set his sights on taking on the United States’ best and brightest. Labbett has degrees from Oxford, Exeter and Glamorgan universities and is also a qualified mathematics teacher. Labbett’s name—from the original French “La Bête”—literally translates as “The Beast.” At 6’6” tall, he is a quiz giant in every way: arrogant and intimidating, with a menacing laugh when he senses a contestant is on the ropes. As likely to win the psychological battle as the intellectual one, The Beast will use every dirty trick in the book to put his opponents off their guard.

Burns began her career starring in the hit series “Baywatch” and has had starring roles in Fox's “North Shore” and the WB's “Pepper Dennis.” Burns also had a recurring role on the new “Melrose Place” and was a series regular on “Miss Guided.” She made her game show hosting debut in 2002 as the host of NBC's “Dog Eat Dog,” now currently seen on GSN, and recently hosted a dating game show pilot for GSN called “Where Have You Been All My Life?” In 2003, she was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for best TV host for “Dog Eat Dog.” Burns' additional television credits include appearances on “Ally McBeal,” “Just Shoot Me,” “Drop Dead Diva” and “CSI: Miami.” She also had a role in the film “Shallow Hal” and the Hallmark Original Christmas movie “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” Burns was last seen in the starring role of the Lifetime movie “A Sister’s Revenge.”

ABOUT THE CHASE

You can run, but you cannot hide, The Beast is always coming after you. In THE CHASE, a team of three contestants attempts to amass as much money as possible by answering quick-fire questions in a 60-second round. The money earned will go towards a team bank. Why the urgency? Because The Beast is always lurking, ready to pounce. The Beast – quite simply -- is a quiz genius. The job of this intimidating presence is to catch each contestant by answering more questions than his opponents to ensure they are not able to bank their money. It’s a role he executes with ruthless efficiency. In the final round, the team collectively plays against The Beast in an epic David vs. Goliath battle for the entire amount that they have banked.

THE CHASE is produced by ITV Studios America with Bob Boden (Don’t Forget the Lyrics, Family Game Night, Greed) serving as Executive Producer.

GOTHIC THRILLER “HEMLOCK GROVE”

BACK ON NETFLIX FOR A SECOND SEASON

Charles Eglee Joins Season Two as Executive Producer and Showrunner

Ten New Episodes to Premiere in 2014

(Beverly Hills, CA – June 19, 2013) – The Netflix Original Series “Hemlock Grove,” a riveting and eerie mystery from executive producer Eli Roth and based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name, will return with a second season next year. Seasoned showrunner Charles H. (Chic) Eglee (“The Walking Dead,” “Dexter,” “The Shield”) joins the popular series as executive producer in season two.

"The worldwide fan response to ‘Hemlock Grove’ was phenomenal" said Executive Producer Eli Roth. "Netflix members loved the potent combination of sexy monsters, mystery, and the dark family soap opera that ended with a huge twist, leaving audiences worldwide totally shocked. Season One was just a warm up for what we have in store for season two. Get ready to be scared in ways you never expected."

“In its first season, Eli, Brian, Lee and the team did an incredible job of introducing viewers to a unique world of memorable characters,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix. “Chic’s addition to the show, and his experience on such fan favorites as ‘The Shield,’ ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Dexter,” will heighten the intensity of the mystery that grips Hemlock Grove.”

"We are thrilled to be working with Netflix on the second season of 'Hemlock Grove', a show that the audience has enthusiastically embraced," commented Katie O'Connell, CEO of Gaumont International Television.

OSCAR® WINNER WHOOPI GOLDBERG TO STAR IN

AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCE LIFETIME ORIGINAL MOVIE

A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT

Movie Based on Terry McMillan’s Beloved Bestseller to Air in 2014

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 21, 2013) – Academy Award®, Golden Globe®, Emmy®, Grammy® and Tony Award®-winner Whoopi Goldberg (Ghost, The Color Purple, The View) will headline and executive produce the Lifetime Original Movie A Day Late and a Dollar Short, based on the New York Times bestseller by Terry McMillan (Waiting to Exhale, How Stella Got Her Groove Back). The announcement was made today by Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President, General Manager, of Lifetime.

In A Day Late and a Dollar Short, when irascible matriarch Viola Price (Goldberg) learns that her next asthma attack is likely to kill her, she sets out to fix her fractured family before she sets a foot anywhere near the grave. In this quest she has to contend with sibling rivalry, teen pregnancy and prescription drug addiction--and that’s just one of her four kids. There’s also a jailbird son to teach how to be a better father, a granddaughter in bigger trouble than her mother is willing to admit and an estranged husband to rescue from his scheming young girlfriend. It’s the kind of meddling that the Price family hasn’t experienced from Viola in decades, and she won’t have an easy time bending her loved ones to her will.

The project reunites Goldberg with McMillan, having co-starred opposite Angela Basset in the motion picture adaptation of McMillan’s novel How Stella Got Her Groove Back. Goldberg also executive produced the Lifetime drama Strong Medicine from 2000 to 2006, as well as the 2001 Lifetime Original Movie What Makes a Family.

“Terry McMillan is one of America’s most beloved writers and A Day Late and a Dollar Short combines her signature emotional storytelling with the complex characters viewers identify with and love. We are thrilled to be working again with Whoopi Goldberg, who will be emptying her enormous talents both in front of and behind the camera,” said Sharenow.

Production on A Day Late and a Dollar Short will take place this summer for a 2014 premiere. Produced by Ostar Productions, the film will be executive produced by Stephen Tolkin (Perception, Brothers & Sisters), Whoopi Goldberg and Tom Leonardis (Ruby’s Bucket of Blood), Jeffrey Hayes (Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King, The Starter Wife) and Bill Haber (Rizzoli & Isles, Beauty and the Beast). Tolkin will direct from a script by Shernold Edwards (Haven).

A+E Networks will handle international sales for A Day Late and a Dollar Short.

Remains of Gene Roddenberry, "Trek" actor James Doohan and sci-fi pioneer Arthur C. Clarke will be launched in November 2014.

Gene Roddenberry Headshot - P 2013

Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry is going where no man has gone before.

Part of his cremated remains will be sent into deep space, along with remains of his wife, Majel Barrett Roddenberry, who appeared on Star Trek the Next Generation as Lwaxana Troi and voiced the computer on multiple Trek series.

Remains of James Doohan (Trek’s Scotty) and pioneering sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke will also be sent into orbit on a memorial flight from the Houston-based Celestis, reports NBC News.

The company, which has been putting remains into orbit for 16 years, will launch its Summerjammer Solar Sail Mission from Cape Cod in November 2014. This will be the first to enter into deep space, and the craft will orbit the sun between Earth and Venus.

Remains from Roddenberry and Doohan have been sent into space on previous Celestis flights. Summerjammer will be launched with an experimental solar sail from NASA, which it hopes will propel the craft with photons from the sun.

Clarke, who in 1999 gave the company the strand of his hair that is to be included on the flight, quipped upon the donation: "I'd give you more, but I don't have anything to spare."

Comic-Con: 'The Originals' Boss Reveals Fall Premiere Details and Series Hopes
Executive producer Julie Plec admits it was "incredibly difficult" to craft the Oct. 15 opener after airing the pilot in April on "The Vampire Diaries."
Vampire Diaries The Originals Cemetery - H 2013
The CW
"The Originals"

Though The Originals aired its backdoor pilot as an episode of The Vampire Diaries, executive producer Julie Plec was mindful of the fact that it would be months before viewers would be re-integrated into the world.

So how did they go about crafting the first episode that will debut in October? By retelling the April 25 episode — with a twist. "The first episode was incredibly difficult to figure out," Plec admitted, before outlining the plan to tell the story from Elijah's (Daniel Gillies) point of view as he goes to New Orleans to find out what his brother Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is up to.

As Plec told Comic-Con attendees at Hilton Bayfront's Indigo Ballroom, citing Rashomon as inspiration, some scenes that were shown during the previous airing will be used as a guide during the fall premiere — with new scenes added in to fill out the story.

With Elijah making his way to New Orleans in the first episode, Plec addressed how Rebekah (Claire Holt) enters the fray. (In the season finale of Vampire Diaries, she was seen making plans with Matt (Zach Roerig) for the summer.) Rebekah will be seen in Mystic Falls in the first episode of Vampire Diaries, Plec said, before she heads to The Originals.

Does this mean that there will be opportunities for Vampire Diaries-Originals crossovers? "Creatively we very much want to keep these relationships alive in the series," Plec said of threads that have been pre-established in the mothership. "There is some unfinished business ... [and we want to] play in that world."

Though Klaus, Rebekah and Elijah were characters established on The Vampire Diaries, the stories that will be told on the new series will naturally go darker. The flagship series is a "coming-of-age story," Plec explained, while "this show we get to tell the story of a dynasty."

"We get to be bold and thrilling and sexy and dangerous," she added, saying that when you get out of the teen world, it lends itself to more mature story telling.

Flashbacks will continue to be a significant part of The Originals, with Marcel's back story explored further. Among the key moments: Klaus' first meeting with Marcel (Charles Michael Davis).

As for how Hayley's pregnancy will play into The Originals, Phoebe Tonkin said she believed the Hayley-Klaus one-night stand was just that — a one-time thing. "They don't know each other very well," she said, adding that she didn't believe it will "be romantic." Added Morgan: "A partnership will have to be formed." Whether or not Klaus and Hayley's baby will be a new breed is a question Plec wants to remain unanswered.

A sizzle reel of the April episode was screened in addition to extended footage not seen in the original broadcast, which featured the character of witch Davina (Danielle Campbell) in an attic. Plec promised that the mystery of Davina will be discussed throughout the series, including why she is in the attic and why Marcel has her there.

As for the Klaroline fans, Plec cited Buffy the Vampire Slayer in characterizing their romance: She is the Buffy "to his Angel."

The Originals debuts Oct. 15 at 8 p.m. on The CW.

Comic-Con: 'Arrow' Welcomes 'True Blood'Alum, Black Dynamite and Black Canary Into the Fold
At a raucous Ballroom 20 panel, the producers of the CW show announced their intentions to transform Oliver Queen from a vigilante "checking names off a list" to a full-fledged hero who goes by the official Green Arrow name.
Katie Cassidy Steve Amell Emily Bett Rickards - H 2013
AP/Invision
Katie Cassidy, Steve Amell and Emily Bett Rickards attend the "Arrow" panel at Comic-Con.

The CW's Arrow is nudging itself ever closer to its comic book origins by introducing a member of the Suicide Squad — villains pressed into service by a shadowy arm of the government into carrying out missions they probably won't survive — and one of the DC Universe's most popular heroines, Black Canary, Oliver Queen's great love.

Talking about how Oliver, played by Stephen Amell, would be "going from the Arrow in season 1 to being Green Arrow in season 2," executive producer Andrew Kreisberg — joined on stage by Amell, Colton Haynes (Roy Harper), Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance), David Ramsey (John Diggle), Emily Bett Rickard (Felicity Smoak), executive producer Mark Guggenheim and executive producer Greg Berlanti — revealed that the second season's premiere episode's title is "City of Heroes," and that it refers to "not just Oliver and Lauren, but to everyone" reeling after the destruction of Star City's Glades district.

When asked if we'd see any more DC heroes on the show other than Black Canary — teased ever so brutally in an action-heavy teaser built from a mere four days of shooting — Kreisberg revealed that Brother Blood, a New Teen Titans villain, will play a role in season 2 (and will be played by True Blood's Kevin Alejandro). He also said that Suicide Squad member Bronze Tiger — who also belongs to R'as Al Ghul's League of Assassins — would be played by Black Dynamite himself, Michael Jai White.

And the fact that John Barrowman crashed the panel halfway through points to his Malcolm Merlyn returning in some fashion, but no one would say precisely how. "If I do get invited back," Barrowman joked, "it's more than the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who has done."

As for Black Canary's introduction in the sizzle reel — and she seems to have been played by a new actress, a departure from the comics-prescribed trajectory for Cassidy's Laurel Lance — Kreisberg and his writing staff have some trickery up their sleeves: "The first Green Arrow we saw wasn't Oliver; chronologically, it was Yao Fei," Kreisberg said, "the first Deathstroke we saw wasn't Slade Wilson; the first Merlyn the archer we saw wasn't his father, it was Tommy."

No reason to think that Cassidy won't get to don the crime-fightin' fishnets, but nothing happens overnight.

Here's the teaser trailer:

'Grimm' Comic-Con panel: Cast, writers tease a different side of Nick and an exciting future for Rosalee/Monroe
by Emily Rome on Jul 20, 2013 at 8:20PM

GRIMM-222-Postmortem.jpg

Image Credit: Scott Green/NBC

The panel: David Giuntoli (Nick), Russell Hornsby (Hank), Bitsie Tulloch (Juliette), Silas Weir Mitchell (Monroe), Reggie Lee (Sgt. Wu), Sasha Roiz (Renard), Bree Turner (Rosalee), Claire Coffee (Adalind), and executive producers Jim Kouf, David Greenwalt, Todd Milliner, and Norberto Barbara.

Footage screened: The first few minutes of season 3 screened for the Comic-Con audience — a scene cut together from footage shot just this past Tuesday. If fans hoped to see footage of Nick post-Baron Samedi attack, they left disappointed, but the clip did feature Monroe, Juliette, and Rosalee escaping from the zombified Portlanders in the container yard, picking up right where season 2 left off. Monroe’s in the driver’s seat — let’s just say he shows off some fast and furious skills here. After the panel discussion, the audience was also treated to a bloody extended trailer for new NBC series Dracula with a video introduction by star Jonathan Rhys Meyers, looking just as creepy in his intro as he does in the show.

Snap judgment: The low-key panel didn’t have the levity and hilarity of last year’s panel for the show. Moderator Lester Hoult (of Grimm‘s lead-in, Dateline) failed to create many opportunities for entertaining moments with the show’s comedic cast. (Giuntoli got to show off his deadpan and brash humor more at Thursday’s hilarious Brave New Warriors panel, but that panel was organized and presented by EW, so consider me biased.)

The big revelations: Of course comedic moments alone do not a successful panel make, so Grimm‘s Comic-Con presentation gets kudos for a few juicy reveals. Mitchell and Turner confirmed that there are wedding bells in Monroe and Rosalee’s future (!!!), but Mitchell hinted that the Blutbad-Fuchsbau couple may face some challenges before the happy day: “I look forward to the obstacles en route to what is hopefully a felicitous nuptial,” he said. After seeing ads for the show around San Diego with the tagline “The hunter becomes the hunted” and a few images of a red-eyed Nick looking rather like a Wesen himself, Greenwalt also teased what’s to come for the noble Portland detective: “He’s gonna be like you’ve never seen him before. He’s going to be a bit of a monster.” The show’s talent also promised more action and more fight scenes in the coming season. Oh, and for those #ShirtlessRage fans out there, Roiz said cheekily that there’s “a slight possibility” season 3 will display Captain Renard sans shirt again.

Most incisive audience question: One of the first questions from the fans got the producers to list a couple new Wesen we’ll see in season 3: gators in the sewer and some “sexy, scary mermaids” — though Kouf noted there will be no Snarknadoes. Bummer, I know. But it was a young fan who asked the question that people really wanted to know the answer to: “Hi, my name’s Alex, and I’m a huge fan, and I was wondering if we’ll see any unicorn Wesen,” she said in a small voice, provoking a big, collective “awww” from the crowd and the panel (Coffee seemed especially tickled.) The cast then started muttering about creating a Twitter hashtag campaign to get the mystical creature on the show, and Roiz quipped, “I already have, trust me.” So, Grimmsters, get thee to Twitter with calls for #UnicornsOnGrimm.

Arrow Duo Preview Finale's 'Emotional' Fallout, Clear Up 'New Black Canary' Confusion

Even though five months will have passed since Malcolm Merlyn’s Undertaking rocked Arrow‘s world and took Tommy’s life, the characters on The CW’s hit drama will be in “an emotional and literally different place” when Season 2 opens Wednesday, Oct. 9.

Visiting with Michael Ausiello in TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite, Stephen Amell and Emily Bett Rickards also teased an “amped up” Arrowcave and previewed Whedonverse vet Summer Glau’s “designs on the Queen empire.”

The pair also cleared up a quite confusing casting story making rounds, that actress Caity Lotz (of The Pact) has joined the cast as Dinah Drake, and that she — and not Laurel — will become the Black Canary. You can get the bona fide 411 on that at the 2:30 mark.

Comic-Con: 'Vampire Diaries' Cast, Producers Tease Season 5
With Elena choosing Damon at the end of last season, executive producer Julie Plec admitted that "there's no drama in happiness."
Vampire Diaries Graduation Nina Dobrev - H 2013
Curtis Baker/The CW
"The Vampire Diaries"

The Vampire Diaries stars had much to talk about Saturday afternoon for the show's fifth trip to Comic-Con.

When season four left off, Stefan discovered that one of Mystic Falls' most dangerous villains, Silas, was his doppelganger, and Katherine involuntarily became human. Plus, Elena finally made her choice between the Salvatore brothers, picking Damon. Will their budding romance end on a happy note?

"There's no drama in happiness," said executive producer Julie Plec, but she gave credit to TV shows that have successfully depicted a happy couple. "One of the things [we will try] to do is to try to keep them happy for a while in the midst of the bad things around them that are trying to tear them apart."

Ian Somerhalder admitted that he was shocked when he found out Damon would be the one Elena ultimately chose. "I thought they were joking. Damon never gets the girl," Somerhalder said, to which co-star Paul Wesley rertorted: "Don't downplay the sexy blue eyes. Don't downplay the 'Smolderholder.' "

"It is Mystic Falls and essentially you can't be that happy for that long, so there's always got to be that drama," Somerhalder added.

"It's the honeymoon phase," Nina Dobrev said. Joked Wesley: "I've done this for three years ... it gets exhausting."

As for the Stefan-Silas cliffhanger, Wesley had been aware of the reveal for a while, even lying to his co-stars -- including Somerhalder -- about it. "You actually told me early on and swore me to secrecy," Wesley said, voicing his excitement for further exploring the Ripper years.

When asked if Silas was season five's big bad, Wesley believed it to be true: "I think so." But Plec interjected: "[The] big bad sometimes gets effed with or vanquished by a bigger bad." The crowd was treated to a scene featuring Silas (as Stefan) addressing a crowd of townspeople questioning how far his powers can go.

As for how Katherine reacts to her new human state? "It's not going to be good for her. Everything she's been doing, she's been hiding behind this face and using vampirism as an advantage to get people to do what she wants, she's going to be [insecure]," Dobrev said. "It's going to take a lot of getting used to."

Elena will be going to college in season five, Dobrev said, but she had questions about how she actually got to that position and her specific field of study.

Elena won't be the only one experiencing college for the first time. "She's pretty determined to get Tyler to college so they can finally be together since Klaus is gone," Candice Accola said, adding, "They can't get by with the same tricks that they did in Mystic Falls." Another nugget? There may be some new friends joining in on the fun.

Bonnie's death will play a substantial part in the new season. "The only person she can communicate with is Jeremy," Kat Graham said, revealing that there will be significant Bonnie-Jeremy moments. "We'll see how long she can keep the secret for."

"The first couple of episodes Bonnie's not going to realize that she herself sacrificed her own life and the grief that comes attached with that," Plec added. Executive producer Caroline Dries said that because "Bonnie's on the other side, we get to have the perspective of what the other side looks like."

Jeremy's reincarnation will be addressed right off the bat, Plec said, with Elena and Jeremy working on a cover story. Now that Elena's off to college, Damon and Jeremy are roommates, which may be the cause of some of the show's comedy, the panelists revealed.

The Vampire Diaries reaches its 100th episode at the halfway point of the season, with Plec coy about the big plans the writers have in store. ("It's going to be a nude musical episode," Somerhalder joked.)

In terms of the Klaus and Caroline relationship, "never say never," Plec said. "The question is: will Caroline have her hands full [in New Orleans]?"

The stars were aware of the sometimes trying and dragged out story lines, most recently last season's arc centered on the search for the cure for vampirism.

"If I had to say 'cure' one more time, I was going to jump off the stage building," Somerhalder said, with panelists joking that "moonstone" was another word that the actors disliked saying after a while.

The Vampire Diaries returns Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. on The CW.

Comic-Con: Little Mermaid to Visit 'Once Upon a Time' in Season 3
The announcement came at the end of the ABC drama's panel Saturday.
Once Upon A Time The Cricket Game - H 2012
ABC

Ariel is heading to Once Upon a Time.

The announcement came at the tail-end of the ABC fantasy drama's panel Saturday morning at Comic-Con, with a short teaser featuring the Little Mermaid stealing a Dinglehopper from one of the dwarves.

Ballroom 20 erupted in enthusiastic cheers when Ariel's red hair and tail were seen jumping into the water by Storybrooke.

Character announcements are nothing new for the Once Upon a Time gang. Last year, the producers revealed Captain Hook's entrance into the Storybrooke world in season two through a short featurette.

As is usual with Once Upon a Time panels, the Q&A session was light on season-three spoilers, though the panelists revealed that they have been in production for two weeks.

For executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, bringing the core cast to Neverland was a long time coming. "The journey was really us waiting for lawyers to figure it out," Kitsis said, adding that in the new season, viewers will see Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and other characters who were introduced last season.

Peter Pan, however, will have a Once Upon a Time twist to the character. "Peter Pan has got a complicated motivation," Horowitz teased. "It's a little different than what you've seen before." Added Kitsis: "He may be a little frightening."

When Captain Hook and company do make their way to Neverland, Kitsis said that "there will be different areas" that they will be visiting. "Some, of course, will be those you remember from the book, and we'll have our own spin on it," he said. "It is a place where anything can happen."

Horowitz hinted that when Tinkerbell comes into the fold, she will have a "surprising connection to someone at this table," referring to stars Jennifer Morrison, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Colin O'Donoghue, Lana Parilla, Robert Carlyle and Michael Raymond-James.

There were also questions about the progression of the Hook/Emma romance.

"We just shared a drink recently so ..." Morrison teased. O'Donoghue countered: "Maybe it could be time for Hook to get over Milah."

Comic-Con: 'Lost' Star Naveen Andrews Joins 'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland'
The casting was announced Saturday morning during the upcoming series' Comic-Con panel, with the actor making a surprise appearance.

A Lost alum is heading to Wonderland.

Naveen Andrews, best known for playing Sayid for seven seasons on the ABC drama, has joined the cast of the Once Upon a Time offshoot, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, it was announced Saturday morning during its Comic-Con panel.

Who will Andrews play? The villainous Jafar, a character that was featured as the main antagonist in the 1992 animated Disney classic Aladdin. This iteration of the character will be "radically different," Andrews told the crowd. He will first appear in the first episode..

The casting of Andrews in the anticipated Wonderland series is a coup for ABC, which had previously cast the English actor in one of its drama pilots, Reckless, that failed to get a series greenlight. The news marks a reunion of sorts for the Gersh-repped Andrews, who worked with Wonderland executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz on Lost for several seasons.

Since Lost, Andrews starred in Syfy's Sinbad drama and next co-stars in Diana, the Princess Diana feature opposite Naomi Watts.

Andrews made a surprise appearance during the Wonderland panel in Ballroom 20 to rapturous applause and screams.

Prior to the casting announcement, the 20-minute presentation was screened for the very first time in front of a public audience.

The producers assured the crowd that while Once Upon a Time follows a more open-ended story, Wonderland will close out the mystery at the end of the first season. Questions that will be answered this season include Alice's back story with all the characters, why Jafar is in Wonderland and how the genie got into the bottle. "We intend to be all killer, no filler," Kitsis said.

"There will be flashbacks in every episode," he added, "just like Once."

Roger Daltry will continue to voice the caterpillar, the producers revealed, while the Cheshire cat will be seen at some point this season as well as the possibility of a Queen of Hearts sighting.

Horowitz revealed that he and Kitsis had been approached during the first season to create a possible spinoff, with the duo saying no because they had no ideas to expand on.

Wonderland takes place in Victorian England, where the young and beautiful Alice (Sophie Lowe) tells a tale of a strange new land that exists on the other side of a rabbit hole. The cast includes Michael Socha as Knave of Hearts, Peter Gadiot as Cyrus, Emma Rigby as Queen of Hearts and John Lithgow as the voice of the White Rabbit.

Steve Perlman and Zack Estrin join Kitsis and Horowitz as executive producers, with the pilot directed by Ralph Hemecker.

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland premieres Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Comic-Con: 'Bates Motel's' Freddie Highmore Makes a 'Killer' Entrance, Producers Tease Season 2
New romance for both Norma and Norman and the freeway bypass story line will play a key role in the upcoming season.
Bates Motel Pilot Episodic - H 2013
A&E Network

Bates Motel opened its Saturday morning Comic-Con panel with a bit of a scare for the assembled masses: Freddie Highmore was conspicuously absent.

Addressing his mysterious absence, producers unspooled a hilarious video going inside the writers' room with the actor -- just back from hiatus and studying at Cambridge -- making a surprise appearance. Visiting the Universal-based lot, Highmore gradually evolved from kind-hearted actor into his on-screen alter-ego of Norman Bates as he saw fake storyline cards giving newly minted Emmy nominee Vera Farmiga (Norma) all the dialogue and a prime spot in the second season key art.

Looking to escape the awkwardness, showrunner Carlton Cuse led the actor to visit the Universal Studios lot where the actual set from Psycho exists as part of the popular studio tour, which is where things go horribly wrong.

Following the amusing clip (below), Highmore made his debut on the panel to a screaming ballroom -- explaining he "got out" of his faux arrest with the help of a good agent.

As for season two of the Psycho prequel, producers offered a few sparse teasers of what to expect. Here are a few things to expect and highlights from the panel.

1. Miss Watson's murder at the end of last season will serve as a liftoff for season two. "It sets things up nicely for season two, doesn't it? We start to see more of a transition for Norman, his transition toward becoming Psycho," Highmore said.

2. Max Thieriot is very cautious about the burgeoning romance between Dylan and the object of Norman's affection: Bradley (Nicola Peltz): "As Norman's brother, I'm rooting for whatever keeps me alive at this point," he joked. "I think it's interesting; it's something I want to see explored, but I'm a little bit nervous about it." Added Highmore: "That's the good thing about being Norman Bates, he's going to be there until the end."

3. Olivia Cooke really doesn't need for Emma and Norman to explore their romantic relationship following their will-they-or-won't-they friendship. "I like where it is right now … I can't keep getting rejected! The 'what could be' and 'what if' is nicer than what could happen. It can't end well!"

4. There are a few things that producers wouldn't ever dream of changing from Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece. "No one ever told us that anything had to remain. I think there are certain things that have to remain: the progression of Norman Bates losing it and the other was the house," co-showrunner Kerry Ehrin said.

5. Don't expect to hear Bernard Herrmann's shocking Psycho "stabbing" score on the A&E prequel. "The idea of doing homages to the original throws you out of the story you're telling," Cuse said. "You're watching it and immediately dislodged from being in Bates Motel. … In smaller ways, we like the idea of referencing the movie." The series will, however, continue to include subtle references to the Hitchcock gem, including Norman's interest in taxidermy -- which will continue in season two. "The audience has some idea of where it's going to go … but we will do our own version of this story. It's not going to end well, but the path there is super fun for us."

6. Norma will have her hands full fighting to get her hotel's business off the ground going head-to-head with White Pine Bay's city council. "We definitely deal with the [freeway] bypass in season two," Cuse said. Season one briefly set up the fact that the bypass would take visitors to the creepy town away from the Bates Motel, which Norma looked to in an attempt to start over.

7. Norma's brother will make an appearance in season two. The character was first mentioned in the season finale and revealed to have had molested Norma for years. "We made reference to Norma's brother last season, and that character might show up this season, which would be pretty interesting," Cuse said.

8. New romance for (almost) everyone! Cuse said Norma and Norman will both get new love interests in season two. "Not with each other!" Cuse said with a laugh.

9. Producers are already talking about an endgame for the A&E drama. "Bates Motel is a story with a beginning, middle and end," Cuse said. "Hopefully by the end of the season, we'll have an idea of how long the story should last; we're talking about it now. People do want to get to the end of the journey; it's not an endless journey. I don't think we're doing 14 years of Bates Motel. Our idea is to tell the story as best we can in the right amount of time. Creatively you figure that out as you go along. The same was true in Lost -- around season three we figured how much time we needed. I hope soon we'll have an idea for how long the show is going to last."

10. "Sandman." That's the one-word tease that Cuse offered for a season-two storyline involving Norma -- one that Farmiga pitched directly to producers.

Check out the hilarious clip of Highmore's visit to the Universal Studios lot, below.

Report: The CW's ARROW Casts BLACK CANARY
by Chris Arrant, Newsarama Contributor

Caity Lotz
View full size image

It looks like Arrow has set its sights on Black Canary. Jeff Sneider and Jethro Nededog at The Wrap are reporting that The CW’s Arrow television series has cast Caity Lotz to play Black Canary in this fall’s second season. Currently Arrow’s producers have Lotz’s Black Canary as a recurring part of the series, with the potential to be expanded to be a series regular. The Black Canary character has long been attached to DC’s Green Arrow, as a partner, love interest and eventually wife in the comics.

Caity Lotz recently starred in the horror film The Pact, and prior to that was one of the main characters in the MTV series Death Valley. Lotz has a strong track record of physicality, doing her own stunts for Death Valley and working as a stunt-double for Step Up 3D. She also has a background in three martial arts.

Of course, this casting would come as quite a surprise to fans of the show and the comic book it is based on, as Katie Cassidy has already been playing the character Dinah "Laurel" Lance, who in the comics is Black Canary's alter-ego, since the first episode of the series. What connection the two characters will have, if any, remains to be seen.

Comic-Con: Joss Whedon's 'Agents of SHIELD' Screens Entire Pilot to a Deafening Crowd
The "Avengers" director brought the entire "SHIELD" pilot episode to Comic-Con's Ballroom 20 -- along with Clark Gregg, Ming-Na and Chloe Bennett -- and set off a nerdquake of impossible proportions.

ABC
Marvel's "Agents of SHIELD"

In case you didn't know it, the people, they love Joss Whedon.

But what was surprising was the realization that Clark Gregg has become a Nerd World rock star. When moderator (and chief of Marvel Television/SHIELD executive producer) Jeph Loeb introduced Gregg and the actor walked out on the Ballroom 20 stage, 4,000 people roared their approval, chanting "Coulson!" at the top of their collective lungs.

"I didn't like being dead," Gregg joked, trying to mask the visible emotion on his face at the outpouring of adoration.

After the rest of the Agents of SHIELD cast — Ming-Na Wen (Melinda May), Chloe Bennett (Skye), Brett Walton (Grant Ward), Elizabeth Henstridge (Jenna Simmons), Iain de Caestecker (Leo Fitz) — took their seats, along with executive producers Jeffrey Bell, Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen and Joss, there was a brief feint at doing a Q&A. "Can you show us a clip?" asked a person who must've been a plant by Disney. To which Joss responded, "We wanted to bring you a clip, but there were issues with the Disney lawyers...so we're just gonna show you the episode."

Which is exactly what they did — and you haven't lived if you've never heard of a few thousand people soiling themselves with joy.

They laughed when they were supposed to laugh, they cheered when they were supposed to cheer — especially when Cobie Smulders' Agent Maria Hill, last seen in The Avengers, shows up to interview Agent Ward and brief the not-dead Coulson on his new assignment, heading up SHIELD's superheroic fast-response team — they ooooohed and ahhhhhhed and tittered and applauded in post-nerdal ecstasy when it was all done.

We're not going to spoil much here, other than to say that a Firefly veteran is a member of the cast, the events of Iron Man 3 are felt in a very real way and while we don't get to see the SHIELD helicarrier, we are treated to something else that shouldn't fly, but does.

"Sitting back there and listening to you guys watch the show and sharing this experience with you has been overwhelming," said Wen.

At the panel's close, Whedon said "I have that feeling I have not had for a very long time, where I've assembled an extraordinary ensemble of ridiculously talented and soon-to-be-full-of-themselves people. The endless possibilities between them and among them; the things we've got from the Marvel Universe and the things we're bringing to the Marvel Universe ... I guess I'm just a little excited."

Comic-Con: 'Veronica Mars' Movie Panel Unleashes First Footage, Fan Love
Creator Rob Thomas, Kristen Bell and the rest of the cast praise their Kickstarter backers, debut a teaser trailer, offer a small casting surprise (Jamie Lee Curtis) and discuss possible sequels.
Veronica Mars Panel - H 2013

The "Veronica Mars" panel

Given the years of skeptical waiting leading up to the Veronica Mars movie finally becoming a reality, the wheels moved surprisingly fast once it had a green light.

An overwhelming response to the Kickstarter campaign preceded the start of production by just a few months -- and with the principal photography wrapping Monday, much of the cast joined the defunct TV series' creator and champion Rob Thomas for their first taste of celebration (and new footage) at Comic-Con.

Kristen Bell was joined by Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Francis Capra, Percy Daggs III, Ryan Hansen, Tina Majorino and Chris Lowell -- but before the cast hit the stage, moderator Jeff Jenson introduced a loving tribute video to the fans and what basically amounted to the movie's first trailer.

"I can tell you that it sort of has a Godfather III theme to it," Thomas said of the teasing footage, "Which is odd, because why not pick Godfather II? It was better. … I can tell you [Bell's Veronica character] has not worked as a private detective since the last time you saw her. Part of this movie is her getting back into this life she thought she left behind."

Veronica Mars, it turns out, is a lawyer. Ten years out of Neptune High, and we first see her in a job interview with a prospective employer played by Jamie Lee Curtis -- whose casting provided another Comic-Con surprise.

As for her first day back in her iconic role, Bell did tell everyone the first thing she read on the script. "My first line back was, 'Charming drink names, I can't decide between a beast with two backs or a donkey punch. … Ooooh, do you think they'd let me order a virgin devirginator?'"

She got a few laughs -- as did Dohring and Lowell, the latter playing the more-than-divisive Piz. "Rob called and said, 'I think we're going to bring Piz back,'" said Lowell. "The death threats have almost stopped. Why now? I wore this shirt just so I wouldn't get shot."

That shirt read "Team Logan," an homage to the overwhelming majority of Veronica Mars fans rooting for Dohring's character.

The parade of fans asking questions about the original series drew a lot of emotion from the actors -- especially the ones who have kept a lower profile since The CW canceled the series in 2007. A teary Capra admitted he thought people had forgotten about him, drawing applause and awes from the crowd.

As for the Veronica Mars that wasn't, Thomas also mentioned his original idea for the film that ended up not working.

"I wanted to do an Agatha Christie movie with everyone in one house -- very few sets and very few guest stars," said Thomas. "And that's not what we did. We made an incredibly ambitious, sprawling low-budget movie. We wanted to include all of those smaller parts that fans really loved."

When asked what he would do with an extra million dollars, Thomas simply said more time. "The tough part has been that you have to be moving all of the time," he said. "The actors know their roles, they're getting maybe three or four chances at a line reading … I want this to be the Bond franchise. I hope we make a ton of money on this movie, and we get to do it through the normal channels. If we're a huge hit, I'm not sure Kickstarer is meant to fund huge hits."

Veronica Mars hits theaters in early 2014.

Syfy Casts Three Roles for Dominion
SYFY CASTS CHRISTOPHER EGAN, TOM WISDOM AND ALAN DALE FOR DOMINION
EGAN TO PLAY “ALEX LANNEN,” WISDOM IS “MICHAEL” AND DALE IS “GENERAL RYSEN” IN SUPERNATURAL SERIES PILOT PRODUCED BY UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS
NEW YORK – September 6, 2013 – Syfy announces the first casting for its upcoming supernatural drama pilot, Dominion, with the signings of Christopher Egan, Tom Wisdom and Alan Dale. Produced by Universal Cable Productions, the pilot is set to begin shooting later this month in Cape Town, South Africa.
Based on characters from the hit theatrical film Legion (2010), Dominion is an epic supernatural action drama set 25 years after the events of the movie and picking up in the aftermath of a catastrophic war between an army of angels and mankind that has transformed the world. The series follows the perilous journey of a rebellious young soldier who discovers he’s the unlikely savior of humanity, set against a backdrop of the ultimate celestial battle as it touches down on earth.


Spring 2013

Following a highly successful series premiere in April 2013, Granite Flats, BYUtv’s first original scripted series, has been renewed for a second season. Filmed entirely in Utah, in a variety of 1960s-era locations, this family-friendly Cold War suspense drama with a twist of science fiction debuted to positive national reviews and became the most watched show in the network’s history. The entire cast and original creative team, featuring top Hollywood and New York actors and talent who have made some of television and film’s most successful programs, will return for the series’ sophomore season.
The groundbreaking network will begin filming season two of Granite Flats this fall and the show will return to the airwaves in Spring 2014. The second season, like the first, will consist of eight new one-hour episodes and is filled with even more suspense, intrigue and romance. Created to fill the decade long family-friendly primetime television programming void, Granite Flats is an evocative portrayal of characters in small town U.S.A. during a time that was simultaneously unsettled and innocent. Based on actual little-known covert U.S. military operations known as MKULTRA, which delve firmly into the realm of science fiction but are actually science fact, the story echoes the tensions and fears that were uniquely a part of that moment in our nation’s history.
The series, along with the High Definition television network’s complete line up of "see the good in the world" programming, is carried to more than 53 million homes and attracts viewers around the country via cable, satellite and multiple digital media platforms including byutv.org, iOS apps for iPhone and iPad, the BYUtv Roku channel, new apps for Android and a BYUtv channel on the Microsoft Xbox 360 platform coming later this year.
A press release announcing season two is included below.
BYUtv Announces Season 2 of Granite Flats—the Network's First Original Scripted Dramatic Series

The entire cast will return for a second season, along with the original creative team, to take viewers deeper into the evocative portrayal of the intrigue, fear and small town innocence that characterized Mountain West America at the height of the Cold War. The eight new one-hour episodes will continue to deliver suspense, nostalgia, drama and romance – all with a twist of science fiction – echoing the era’s tensions and suspicions, uncovering events surrounding actual little-known covert United States military operations and focusing on the realities of growing up during that unique moment in our nation’s history.

LIFETIME GOES FOR THE GOLD WITH BIOPIC THE GABBY DOUGLAS STORY, STARRING IMANI HAKIM AND SYDNEY MIKAYLA AS THE OLYMPIC PHENOMENON;
PEABODY AWARD WINNER REGINA KING TO ALSO STAR
Two-Time Olympic Gold Medalist GABBY DOUGLAS to Appear in Film,
Also Featuring Emmy® and Golden Globe® Winner S. EPATHA MERKERSON
LOS ANGELES, CA (September 16, 2013) – Imani Hakim (Everybody Hates Chris, Love Reign Over Me) and Sydney Mikayla (Whitney) have been cast to share the role of two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas in the Lifetime Original Movie The Gabby Douglas Story (working title). Produced by Sony Pictures Television, the movie details the inspiring true story of the international gymnastics phenomenon, who overcame overwhelming odds to become the first African American ever to be named Individual All-round Champion in artistic gymnastics at the Olympics. Mikayla will portray Douglas during her childhood while Hakim will play the gold medalist as a teenager and young adult. The real-life Gabby Douglas will appear in the film, which also stars Peabody Award-winning actress Regina King (Southland, Ray) and Golden Globe® and Emmy®-winner S. Epatha Merkerson (Law & Order). The Gabby Douglas Story will film in Manitoba, Canada, and debut in 2014.
A prodigy from a very young age, Gabby Douglas originally made her mark on the world of competitive gymnastics at age eight. She won numerous state championship titles in her age group throughout her early competitive career. While her star was fast rising in the arena, Gabby and her family faced economic challenges at home and she made the difficult decision to leave her mother Natalie (King), three siblings and grandmother (Merkerson) in Virginia Beach and move to Des Moines, Iowa, to train with renowned coach Liang Chow (Brian Tee, The Wolvernine) to pursue her dream of Olympic glory. Buoyed by her early success, dedication and unyielding love from her family, Gabby made it onto the 2012 U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team, with whom she faced intense competition in the London Games. Her sacrifice and perseverance were triumphantly rewarded with Team Competition and Individual All-round gold medals, placing Gabby and her teammates – known as “The Fierce Five” -- among the world’s all-time greats in gymnastics.

TNT’s Mob City: First Look at Key Art
September 9, 2013 Christina Hamilton 1:01 pm ET

TNT Unveils Key Art for Eagerly Anticipated Drama MOB CITY, from Writer-Director-Producer Frank Darabont

TNT has released the initial key art for its eagerly anticipated television event Mob City, the powerful drama from Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead), who wrote and directed the pilot and serves as executive producer on the series. The two images capture different aspects of the 1940s-set dama, with one featuring Mob City stars Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) and Ed Burns (Entourage) in a composite reminiscent of newspaper crime photos of the era. The second image shows a fan dancer from the one of the nightspots featured in the series. Mob City is set to premiere Wednesday, Dec. 4, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

TNT’s Mob City depicts the epic battle between a determined police chief and a dangerous mobster in 1940s Los Angeles. In addition to Bernthal and Burns, the series’ extraordinary ensemble cast includes Jeffrey DeMunn (The Walking Dead, The Shawshank Redemption), Neal McDonough (Captain America, Desperate Housewives), Gregory Itzin (24), Robert Knepper (Prison Break), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes), Alexa Davalos (Clash of the Titans, The Mist) and Jeremy Luke (Don Jon). Based on the critically acclaimed book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City, by John Buntin, Mob City centers on Det. Joe Teague (Bernthal), an ex-Marine who holds his cards close to his chest. Teague has been assigned to a new mob task force headed by Det. Hal Morrison (DeMunn). The task force is part of a crusade by Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker (McDonough) to free the city of criminals like Ben “Bugsy” Siegel (Burns) and Mickey Cohen (Luke), the ruthless king of the Los Angeles underworld. Parker also won’t hesitate to go after anyone from his own police force who sells out honor and duty for the sake of a big payout. Mob City is produced by TNT Originals. Also serving as executive producers on the series are Michael De Luca (The Social Network) and Elliot Webb (Alpha House). Alissa Phillips and Dana Renee Ashmore serve as co-executive producers, with Paul Bernard as producer.

Ron Shirley is the hulking, tattooed owner and boss who has a colorful way of turning a phrase. His wife, Amy, a former champion power lifter, works the main office. And Bobby acts as Ron's right-hand man as they go about the difficult task of tracking down and repossessing property and dealing with irate owners. Lizard Lick Towing comes to truTV from Zodiak New York.

truTV’s highest-rated series is back for its eighth season as it takes viewers behind the scenes at one of the country’s largest pawnshops, American Jewelry & Loan, owned by the appropriately named Les Gold. Working for – and sometimes clashing with – Les are his son, Seth, who is being groomed to eventually take over the business, and Les' daughter, Ashley, who doesn't think Seth is up to the job. The new season starts with some bad blood between Les and Seth that could lead to a devastating betrayal – but only one man knows the shocking truth. Hardcore Pawn is produced by Zodiak New York.

TLC PARTIES WITH THE DEARLY DEPARTED

**Sneak Peek: http://www.tlc.com/tv-shows/best-funeral-ever/videos/new-season-sneak-peek.htm

This is now airing in October, not December as previously reported!

TLC PARTIES WITH THE DEARLY DEPARTED

New series BEST FUNERAL EVER premieres Wednesday, October 23rd at 10/9c

For most of us, death is a time to mourn and shed tears for the departed. For others, it’s a time to honor their loved ones and celebrate the life through services that reinvent the traditional funeral. Earlier this year, TLC introduced viewers to the Dallas-based Golden Gate Funeral Home where John Beckwith Jr. and his staff organize the most unique funerals in the country, called home-going celebrations. The premiere of TLC’s BEST FUNERAL EVER became a pop culture phenomenon and a trending topic on twitter. The pilot averaged 1.5M P2+ viewers and ranked #2 among all ad-supported cable in its Sunday 10-11pm time period among W18-34.

No expense is spared as Beckwith and his team creates memories that will last forever. Starting with the deceased’s occupation or passion in life, the Golden Gate staff works with the families to create a central theme for a memorial and then elevates it to an unforgettable party. The end goal is to create a celebration as unique as the person they loved with an equally unique party.

You know what, I'm very unhappy with the post office, and probably it's partly stamps.com's fault as well. I mailed almost 100 boxes in July to our new residence here in Honolulu. 3 of the boxes didn't arrive. Most of them were paper labels that I printed out using your software (a few that we mailed separately had hand-written labels). 1 of the hand-written labels got ripped off; we know that because the post office sent us the label, which they found in one of their post offices, so it obviously came off the box, which is god knows where. The other two simply never arrived. However, they were tracked to Honolulu, but never scanned in and delivered here to our apartment. Probably a label problem as well. If I had written the address on the box, we might have gotten them even with the label being torn off. You guys should advise people who are sending boxes with your labels to also write the address on the box.

What I don't get is why they didn't arrive. I could see, maybe one, but 3? I'm 51, so I've been sending packages for about 35 years. I've probably sent thousands in my lifetime (at least hundreds). I think MAYBE 2 did not reach their destination. Yet somehow from these 96 boxes I mailed here to Hawaii, 3 didn't arrive? That's just not right.

Whose fault is it? I don't know. Partly my fault, I guess, for not writing the address on the boxes and for not writing not every single item in the boxes and making sure nothing of value was sent. We only had a few weeks to move, and I had a lot of stuff, so I simply didn't have time to write down what went into every box (we also had movers send 145 boxes across country to put into storage, so there was a lot of packing). Definitely the fault of the post office and probably stamps.com as well.

So now I'm left with a sick, upset feeling in my stomach, not knowing what is lost or if I will ever see it again. Some missing items I do know, but the rest... no idea. Probably some keepsakes and DVD's, things that are irreplaceable, in part because I didn't itemize them.

The woman at the post office here insists they were delivered, but she also admits that with 96 boxes, they can't account for every single one. She basically did the verbal equivalent of saying, "Oh, well!" What does she care? They're not her items.

It just really makes me wonder how 3 boxes (not small ones, either) could be lost so easily and why nothing can be done about it.

“A RAISIN IN THE SUN REVISITED: THE RAISIN CYCLE AT CENTER STAGE”

PREMIERES OCTOBER 25 AS PART OF PBS ARTS FALL FESTIVAL

– Explores Legacy and Impact of Lorraine Hansberry’s Groundbreaking Play –

ARLINGTON, VA; October 3, 2013 –PBS’ new performance documentary A RAISIN IN THE SUN REVISITED: THE RAISIN CYCLE AT CENTER STAGE explores the history and legacy of Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking 1959 play through the lens of a culturally significant milestone: the staging of two contemporary, issues-oriented plays that Raisin inspired: Bruce Norris’s Tony Award-winning Clybourne Park and Beneatha’s Place by Kwame Kwei-Armah, artistic director of the State Theater of Maryland, Baltimore’s Center Stage. The program premieres Friday, October 25 at 9:00 p.m. ET on PBS (check local listings) as part of the PBS ARTS FALL FESTIVAL, which highlights artists and performances from around the country and invites every American into the worlds of music, theater, opera and cultural history.

A Raisin in the Sun was the first Broadway play to depict the strength and humanity of an African-American family striving for a piece of the American dream by buying a house in a white working-class neighborhood in Chicago. More than 50 years later, playwright Bruce Norris created Clybourne Park, a sardonic Pulitzer Prize-winning prequel/sequel that takes place in the same Chicago house and revisits the questions of race, real estate and gentrification in America. Inspired by Hansberry’s original and Norris’ follow-up, Kwame Kwei-Armah penned Beneatha’s Place, which follows two of the Raisin characters to Nigeria and its post-colonial struggles.

Baltimore’s acclaimed regional theater Center Stage mounted Clybourne Park and Beneatha’s Place in repertory as The Raisin Cycle, in celebration of the theater’s 50th anniversary season. The 60-minute documentary reflects the legacy of Hansberry’s original work and underscores the considerable backstage work that goes into making a performance pairing of this caliber. With two opening nights looming, actors, creative team members, and Center Stage producers talk candidly about their work and the challenges of an unusually demanding rehearsal process. Rehearsals, meetings and costume fittings are paired with footage of Center Stage’s performances, the 1961 film and insights from theater historians.
“These contemporary plays, inspired by A Raisin in the Sun and produced by Center Stage, are perfect examples of the thought-provoking, culturally significant work being done at American theater companies today,” said Donald Thoms, PBS Vice President of Programming and Talent Management. “This special documentary both salutes the pioneering original and gives insight into the development of the new -- with significant glimpses of all three. This film is a tremendous addition to this year’s PBS Arts Fall Festival.”

A RAISIN IN THE SUN REVISITED: THE RAISIN CYCLE AT CENTER STAGE is produced by James Arntz and John Paulson of Third Rail Productions, in collaboration with Maryland Public Television.

“Lorraine Hansberry’s original play continues to inspire artists and audiences more than 50 years later,” said Kwame Kwei-Armah. “The issues raised by the original work, as well as by Clybourne Park and Beneatha’s Place are vital to the national conversation on race and class, and our hope through staging the two plays simultaneously was to engage the audience and encourage them to consider these issues in their own lives. We’re proud to bring this performance documentary to PBS with the same goal in mind, raising the civic discussion from a local to a national level.”

“The relevance of A Raisin in the Sun is undeniable. We are thrilled to have worked with Center Stage, as well as with James Arntz and John Paulson, to bring the story of the original and the ambitious stage productions of ‘The Raisin Cycle’ to PBS audiences across the U.S.,” said Steven J. Schupak, Chief Content Officer, Maryland Public Television.

James Arntz and John Paulson have produced a number of award-winning PBS arts specials over the years, including HOMECOMING: The Kansas City Symphony Presents Joyce DiDonato for the 2012 PBS Arts Summer Festival, AMERICAN MASTERS "Les Paul – Chasing Sound," and "Piano Grand! A Smithsonian Celebration" with the Smithsonian Institution and Maryland Public Television.

David Blaine returns to primetime television in a groundbreaking special, "David Blaine: Real or Magic," TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2013 (9:30-11:00p.m., ET) on the ABC Network.
DAVID BLAINE AMAZES THE MOST RECOGNIZABLE AND INTRIGUING PEOPLE IN THE WORLD IN A GROUNDBREAKING NEW SPECIAL "DAVID BLAINE: REAL OR MAGIC" ON ABC
David Blaine returns to primetime television in a groundbreaking new special "David Blaine: Real or Magic," this November on the ABC Network.
David Blaine's signature brand of street magic mystifies the most recognizable celebrities in the world, including Jamie Foxx, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Ricky Gervais, Katy Perry, Woody Allen, and Robert DeNiro, to name a few. He goes into the homes of Kanye West and Harrison Ford, Will Smith and Olivia Wilde. He visits Stephen Hawking at his office in Cambridge University. Blaine also travels the world, astonishing people from all walks of life with never-before seen, inconceivable magic.
Blaine has been captivating the world with death-defying feats for nearly two decades. He’s been buried alive in New York City for a week, encased inside a six-ton block of ice for three days and nights, he stood atop a 100-foot-tall pillar in Bryant Park for 36 hours without a safety net, survived on nothing but water inside a transparent box in London for 44 days, and spent one week submerged in a sphere-shaped aquarium at Lincoln Center, at the end of which he attempted to break the world record for breath holding. A year later, he succeeded in breaking that record live on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” holding his breath for 17 minutes and 4 seconds. In 2008, Blaine hung upside down for over 60 hours in New York’s central Park. Most recently, in October of 2012, he stood in the middle of a million volts of electricity for 73 consecutive hours.
With “Real or Magic,” Blaine redefines magic once again, eliciting reactions that both shock and defy all expectations.


December
“LIGHTS, CAMERA, CHRISTMAS!” BEGINS PRODUCTION FOR ABC
First Reality-Competition Program of its Kind is Produced by FremantleMedia North America
“Lights, Camera, Christmas!” is a new competition series in which 16 families from across America will decorate their homes to the extreme for Christmas – in ways that would certainly make even Clark Griswold envious – for a $50,000 Grand Prize. The series will air this December on ABC.
In the first nationwide Christmas lights competition of its kind for television, four families will compete each week to transform their homes for the holidays in just 21 days. These 16 families were chosen through an extensive nationwide search, based on their previous elaborate Christmas light displays, incredible choreography and over-the-top designs. The four finalists will be flown to a surprise finale city to compete for the $50,000 Grand Prize.


DISCOVERY CHANNEL EXPLORES THE EXTREME STRATEGIES OF THOSE PREPARING FOR THE END IN ‘APOCALYPSE PREPPERS’
-One Hour Special Airs Thursday, October 17 at 9PM ET/PT-
Los Angeles, CA – What do maple syrup, bentonite clay and toilet water have in common? They could all possibly be our saving grace once the apocalypse hits. In Discovery Channel’s APOCALYPSE PREPPERS, which premieres Thursday, October 17 at 9PM ET/PT, viewers will learn about the mind-boggling ways that preppers are gearing up for all hell to break loose, by developing unique ways to sustain their lives when the world begins to crumble. According to preppers and some scientists, it’s no longer a question of if the world will end, but when.
APOCALYPSE PREPPERS takes a look at the lives of those who employ survival strategies based on three different apocalyptic theories:
The Black Plague: A disease of healthy people, the dreaded Black Plague once wiped out a third of Europe’s population in the 1340s. Some fear this rapidly fatal illness will not only spread naturally but that it will be used as intentional “biological warfare.” Between infected flea bites, skin turning black and open sores, this disease progresses aggressively within a quick 72 hour time frame. See how some plan on resorting to a medieval way of life to avoid a societal breakdown, as most believe antibiotics won’t be enough.
Alien Invasion: Some believe that if aliens have the capacity to reach us, they will have the means to destroy us. Between UFO sightings and recent communication between Earth and other planets, the existence of extraterrestrial beings is gradually becoming more acceptable. How will those who await their arrival plan to survive when hospitals close? How far will they go for food and shelter? Viewers will even see the extreme methods preppers engage in to modify their appearances in hopes of confusing the enemy.
Robot Rebellion: Some believers think we will be the masters of our own demise once robots prove to surpass the intelligence of humans. They’ll have minds of their own, making 30-40 percent of decisions without human control. What they won’t possess, however, is human judgment or the ability to distinguish an enemy from a comrade. Learn how some plan to defend against robots when they believe technology is no longer on their side, which includes going back to basics with home-made weapons and hideaway fortresses.

NEW DISCOVERY SERIES ‘Bar hunters’ GIVES WANNABE BAR OWNERS THE CHANCE TO TURN THEIR DREAMS INTO REALITY
-First Two Episodes Premiere Back-to-Back on Monday, October 21 at 10PM E/P on Discovery-
(Los Angeles, California) Opening a bar is no party. While many people dream of running a bar of their own, at least half of them fail within the first year. Enter renowned bar expert and sommelier Tom Powers, who has helped open more than two dozen successful restaurants and bars. Now he’s using his expertise to help first-time bar owners find their dream bars in the new series BAR HUNTERS, premiering Monday, October 21, at 10 PM E/P on Discovery.
Each week, Tom will hunt down three high potential spots and reveal how each location can be transformed into the ultimate money making investment. But not all spaces are created equally, with each having its own share of positives and negatives. Tom gives his expert opinion, ranking each space on a scale of one to 10 for success. But ultimately, the decision is in the hands of the bar newbies who must decide which space fits their budget and concept.
The first two 30-minute episodes will air back-to-back beginning at 10PM on Monday, Oct. 21. In the first episode, Tom heads out to the college party town of Tempe, Arizona, where he meets longtime pals Ben and Lars who are looking to open a down and dirty, All-American country western bar complete with a mechanical bull. But can Tom successfully find the right spot without breaking the bank?
Then, in the second episode airing at 10:30PM, Tom meets a father and his two sons looking to open a California beach-themed bar – right in the heart of Dallas, Texas. Can Tom show this trio the spots that give off the California vibes they’re looking for without having to leave their hometown?

AIR DATE CHANGE: TLC's BEST FUNERAL EVER

TLC’s BEST FUNERAL EVER will now premiere on Monday, December 2nd at 10/9c.

TLC PARTIES WITH THE DEARLY DEPARTED

New series BEST FUNERAL EVER premieres Monday, December 2nd at 10pm ET/PT

For most of us, death is a time to mourn and shed tears for the departed. For others, it’s a time to honor their loved ones and celebrate the life through services that reinvent the traditional funeral. Earlier this year, TLC introduced viewers to the Dallas-based Golden Gate Funeral Home where John Beckwith Jr. and his staff organize the most unique funerals in the country, called home-going celebrations. The premiere of TLC’s BEST FUNERAL EVER became a pop culture phenomenon and a trending topic on twitter. The pilot averaged 1.5M P2+ viewers and ranked #2 among all ad-supported cable in its Sunday 10-11pm time period among W18-34.
No expense is spared as Beckwith and his team creates memories that will last forever. Starting with the deceased’s occupation or passion in life, the Golden Gate staff works with the families to create a central theme for a memorial and then elevates it to an unforgettable party. The end goal is to create a celebration as unique as the person they loved with an equally unique party.

DISCOVERY’S YUKON MEN RETURNS WITH ALL NEW EPISODES!

(New York, NY) Tanana, Alaska – no man’s land, just 60 miles from the Arctic Circle. Every day brings new challenges for the 200 people who reside in this tiny village. Overcoming these challenges is the key to surviving. After a bone chilling winter and six weeks of total darkness, the YUKON MEN are emerging from their homes and returning to Discovery with all new episodes on Sunday, October 20th at 10pm ET/PT.

Last season, Tanana had record-breaking temperatures of 70 degrees below. Viewers watched as the Yukon Men scrambled to collect enough resources to live through the winter. While the dark days may be over, the fight for survival is a never-ending struggle for the villagers of Tanana. After weeks of draining their food, wood and fuel, they must now scramble to replenish their essentials in the face of the harsh winter storms.
This season, father-son relationships will be put to the test with new pressures and responsibilities that will be demanded of them. The YUKON MEN find themselves at a cross roads as they grapple with some life-altering decisions. Stan Zuray has always been a proud patriarch and has welcomed the responsibility to provide for his families. But Stan isn’t getting any younger and hunting in Alaska isn’t getting any easier. Stan’s son, Joey, must step up and take on some of the major responsibilities in order to protect his father from the harsh conditions of the Alaskan wilderness. Meanwhile, Charlie Wright is struggling with his own family, as his son, Bob, must decide if he can handle a life in Tanana or if it’s time to find a job in the big city. Down the street, Pat Moore must deal with a family illness and a business in jeopardy while his daughter Courtney relishes in her pregnancy.
These YUKON MEN (and women) are a rare breed who rely on their ingenuity and experience to survive this tough lifestyle. As the temperatures drop in Tanana, the tensions run high.

Below please find the press release for Discovery Channel’s one hour special, JFK: THE LOST TAPES, which explores the assassination of President Kennedy through newly released audio recordings and testimonies from those on-site in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, including Clint Hill, the secret service agent responsible for Mrs. Kennedy.

THROUGH NEWLY RELEASED MATERIALS DISCOVERY CHANNEL EXPLORES EVENTS SURROUNDING THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY IN JFK: THE LOST TAPES

-One Hour Special Airs Nov. 21 at 7PM ET/PT-

Nov. 22, 1963 is a date that will forever be remembered. The assassination of President John F. Kennedy left the country to mourn the loss of its Commander-in-chief, set off one of the greatest manhunts in American history, and left our government to answer the impossible question, what happens now? Newly released audio recordings from Air Force One, combined with digitally re-mastered audio from the Dallas Police Force, and the testimonies and radio recordings of on-site reporters, reveal the riveting, behind-the-scenes story of the Kennedy assassination in Discovery Channel’s all-new special JFK: THE LOST TAPES which premieres Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7PM ET/PT.

In JFK: THE LOST TAPES, new government tapes from Air Force One and testimonies from those on the ground that day, including Clint Hill, the secret service agent responsible for Jackie Kennedy, offer a gripping insight into what happened that momentous day, and the inside story of a government struggling to come to grips with a crisis spiraling further out of control with each passing minute. Never-before-heard radio recordings from the Dallas Police Department reveal the desperate search for evidence, the frantic manhunt, and the crucial moments that led to the identification and arrest of Lee Harvey Oswald as the murderer of John F. Kennedy. Amidst it all, news radio reports from around Dallas reveal the panic and chaos that threatened to engulf the city.

JFK: THE LOST TAPES is produced for Discovery Channel by Arrow Media where Tom Brisley serves as Executive Producer and Chris Martin is the film’s Director. For Discovery Channel, Executive Producer is John Cavanagh.

NETFLIX ORDERS PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER SERIES FROM “DAMAGES” CREATORS

Original Series from Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler to Premiere Only on Netflix

Beverly Hills, CA – October 14, 2013 - Netflix has ordered a new psychological thriller series from “Damages” creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler ("KZK") that centers on a family of adult siblings whose secrets and scars are revealed when their black sheep brother returns home. The 13-episode first season, from Sony Pictures Television, will premiere exclusively for Netflix members to watch instantly in all Netflix territories.

“We were spellbound after hearing Todd, Glenn and Daniel’s pitch, and knew Netflix was the perfect home for this suspenseful family drama that is going to have viewers on the edge of their seats,” said Cindy Holland, vp of original content for Netflix. “Their work on ‘Damages’ was truly ahead of its time and we’re proud to be bringing our viewers this upcoming series.”

"We are absolutely thrilled to be creating an original series for Netflix -- a company committed to cutting-edge storytelling in a vibrant, new space. We're equally excited about our relationship with Sony Pictures TV, which continues to provide us with unwavering creative support. We've always wanted to put our spin on a family saga and examine universal themes of family in a way that has never been seen before on television. The series is a tightly wound thriller that explores the complex bonds between parents and children, brothers and sisters, and the rivalries, jealousies, and betrayals at the core of every family,” said Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler.

"The guys worked so hard to come up with the right idea after the success of Damages," said Jamie Erlicht, president of programming and production for Sony Pictures Television. "It took almost a year to fully develop the pitch and their patience paid off with the incredible reaction in the community, especially at Netflix, the perfect home for this show."

Set to begin production in early 2014, the series explores the wounds and emotional demons that lie at the core of a contemporary American family. Kessler, Zelman and Kessler will serve as executive producers of the one-hour drama that will be produced by Sony Pictures Television for Netflix.

TLC’S “SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA” IS BACK WITH ALL-NEW EPISODES FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8 at 9PM ET/PT


In the new season of TLC’s SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA – which kicks off on Friday, November 8 at 9/8c with back-to-back episodes - a new batch of southern brides-to-be visit Bridals by Lori in search of their perfect wedding dress.

In the premiere episode, TV personality and former correspondent for EXTRA, Adrianna Costa, looks for one of the two dresses she will wear on her wedding day. She has already found the dress she will wear to her ceremony but is looking to turn the “sexy” up at the reception in a more curve-hugging and cleavage-bearing dress. Her mother however would rather not see her daughter show off too much of her assets.
Throughout the new season, other episodes include brides such as Tracy, who visits the salon with her family and best friend Chris when she quickly realizes that bringing Chris may have been a mistake as his expensive taste disrupts her family’s vision of a discounted dress. Chris takes Tracy away from the bargain rack and tempts her to try on a dress that is $5000 over budget. Will Tracy stay on sale with her family or will she break through her budget and say yes to Chris’s pick? Another bride-to-be, Hailey, is finally in a happy place in her life after losing both of her parents by the age of fifteen. Will Hailey be able to remain joyful as she puts her dreams of a sexy wedding dress on hold in order to please her future mother-in-law? Bride Tamisha is also trying to find her dream dress as she’s already tried on 27 dresses but has yet to find one that both she and her over-the-top best friend, Chances, both like. Tensions grow as Tamisha does not agree with Chances’ vision of the perfect dress. Once again, it will be up to Lori Allen, Monte Durham, and the Bridals by Lori team of experts to find solutions for all these indecisive brides-to-be.

George Foreman

On Mayweather Jr. and Pacquiao, Wanting to Kill his Opponents in the Ring, and his Close Relationship with Muhammad Ali

Episode 6 of the 4th Season of Emmy-Winning In Depth With Graham Bensinger Premieres October 19th/ 20th 2013

Check Local TV Listings / Watch on Yahoo! Sports

photo: http://tvmegasite.net/images/primetime/promo/yahoo/foreman.jpg

Graham Bensinger sits down with Former heavyweight champion, George Foreman, at his 40-acre property in the outskirts of Houston, Texas. He calls winning the gold medal at the 1968 Summer Olympics the fondest memory in his boxing career. Foreman says growing up poor in the 5th ward of Houston is what drove his anger and vicious nature in the early part of his career while fighting names like Ken Norton and Joe Frazier. He says he is at peace with losing the heavyweight title to Muhammad Ali and describes his close relationship with Ali now. Foreman says he returned to boxing after a ten year break to make money for his struggling youth center. The decision resulted in him becoming the oldest heavyweight champion in history at age 45. We also get a rare look at Foreman's collection of more than 50 cars including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maybachs and classic Chevys.

Bensinger asks Foreman to compare himself to undefeated champion, Floyd Mayweather, Jr.: “Floyd Mayweather can really box. He’s skillful. All I had was just one punch, and if I could hit you with it, I could take you out.” When asked about the apparent decline of Manny Pacquiao’s career, Foreman adds: “We all think we've got one more boxing match in us, and that, probably, will be the downfall of Floyd Mayweather, George Foreman, Manny Pacquiao. We’ll overstay our welcome. And I think it’s time, maybe for both to try something else.”

When asked about his reputation in and out of the ring, Foreman confesses: “When I was in the ring, you really saw the best of me. Outside the ring, I was really some terrible fellow.” Referencing Foreman’s unrelenting anger in the ring, Bensinger asks, “You wanted to like kill Ken Norton in your fight with him, and then, when that didn’t happen, you wanted to kill Muhammad Ali in your fight with him...Why? Foreman explains, “It wasn’t about Ken Norton or Muhammad Ali. It was like anyone I had met in the ring. I said, “I’m going to kill one of these guys then they’ll know that I’m the best.”

Link: http://sports.yahoo.com/video/george-foreman-wanted-kill-muhammad-110000589.html

Bensinger asks Foreman to elaborate on the controversy surrounding his 1974 title match with Ali: “I had a lot of complaints after that boxing match…The ropes were too loose. The referee counted too fast, and I had something in my water.” But years later, Foreman has learned to accept the outcome: “I have lots of excuses, but it still doesn’t bring it back and make it a win. I’ve learned to live with that.”

Link: http://sports.yahoo.com/video/george-foreman-tainted-water-rumble-110000045.html

Foreman recounts the harrowing experience of secretly flying to the West Indies to regain custody of two of his children: “I woke up one day and I came home, and all my kids were gone… I flew to Barbados…and then rented a private plane for St. Lucia.” Bensinger asks about the tense moments that followed once Foreman reunited with his children: “And was there concern at that time?...You thought they were going to kill you. Foreman: “I said, ‘To get my kids, you're going to have to kill me.’ And I hear someone say, ‘Kill him then.’”

Link: http://sports.yahoo.com/video/george-foreman-had-steal-children-110000797.html

Foreman has a massive car collection and when asked how many cars he owns, he jokes, “I really don't know because I've taken to hiding them from my wife, and some are in different places.” Bensinger follows: “More than fifty?” Foreman: “Yeah, more than fifty.” Foreman’s third eldest son, George IV, gives Bensinger a firsthand look inside of the garage that houses the former champ’s collection, and they both take a ride in Big George’s luxurious Maybach.

FOX GIVES SERIES ORDER TO NEW ACTION-ADVENTURE DRAMA “HIEROGLYPH”

High-Concept, Epic Series Features Ancient Egypt as Backdrop for Palace Intrigue, Quests for Power and World of Magic, Gods and Goddesses

20th Century Fox Television and Chernin Entertainment to Produce Series;

Screenwriter Travis Beacham (“Pacific Rim”) to Write and Executive-Produce;

Miguel Sapochnik (“Fringe”) to Direct Premiere Episode

Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) has given a 13-episode series order to HIEROGLYPH, a fantastical action-adventure show produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Chernin Entertainment, and executive-produced by Peter Chernin (NEW GIRL, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), Katherine Pope (NEW GIRL) and Travis Beacham (“Pacific Rim,” “Clash of the Titans”), who wrote the pilot script. Miguel Sapochnik (“Repo Men,” “Fringe”) will serve as an executive producer on the project and will direct the premiere episode. Production is scheduled to begin in early 2014.

Set in ancient Egypt, where fantasy and reality intertwined, HIEROGLYPH follows a notorious thief who is plucked from prison to serve the Pharoah, navigating palace intrigue, seductive concubines, criminal underbellies and even a few divine sorcerers.
“We wanted to do a show about deceit, sex, intrigue in the court and fantastical goings-on – no better place to set that than ancient Egypt,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment for FOX. “Travis Beacham has an inventive mind, and he has wrapped this all together in this intoxicating new drama.”

Based on his original story idea, Travis Beacham co-wrote the screenplay with director Guillermo Del Toro for this past summer’s sci-fi hit “Pacific Rim,” which has grossed more than $400 million worldwide since its release in July. Beacham also co-wrote the screenplay for the hit 2010 re-imagining of the classic mythic adventure “Clash of the Titans,” directed by Louis Leterrier. Beacham is currently writing the sequel to "Pacific Rim" for Legendary. He has penned screenplays for the feature films “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo” and a remake of the sci-fi classic, “The Black Hole.”

Chernin Entertainment produces television programs and feature films. Its current television slate includes FOX’s NEW GIRL. The company’s first feature film, “Rise of Planet of the Apes,” was released in August 2011 and has grossed more than $480 million at the worldwide box office. Chernin Entertainment is currently producing the sequel, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” as well as the sequel to its successful summer comedy, “The Heat.”

A 21st Century Fox company, Twentieth Century Fox Television is one of the industry’s most prolific suppliers of primetime television programming and entertainment content, including the blockbuster and Emmy Award- and Golden Globe Award-winning “Modern Family,” the pop culture phenomenon and Golden Globe Award-winning GLEE, the celebrated anthology series “American Horror Story,” the hit comedies NEW GIRL and “How I Met Your Mother” and the longest running primetime scripted series in the history of television, THE SIMPSONS. The studio recently resurrected its Emmy Award-winning cult hit “Arrested Development,” and its cable production division, Fox 21, is responsible for the Emmy Award- and Golden Globe Award-winning “Homeland.” The studio's newest drama, SLEEPY HOLLOW, has garnered critical acclaim, high ratings and was the first freshman show of the season to earn a renewal.

HIEROGLYPH is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Chernin Entertainment. The series is created, written and executive-produced by Travis Beacham. Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope, as well as Miguel Sapochnik, who will direct the premiere episode, also serve as executive producers.

Story Slug: "Stop Bullying Speak Up 2013"
In honor of National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month we have a fantastic new online video out today starring Late Night with David Letterman band leader Paul Shaffer talking with his daughter Victoria about their four amazing adopted dogs.

“Meet My Shelter Pet: Paul & Victoria Shaffer”
http://www.youtube.com/embed/h8c7W-uBkaY

The video is the first in our “Meet My Shelter Pet” series released by The Humane Society of the U.S., Maddie’s Fund, HALO, Purely for Pets and the Ad Council (the country’s largest producer of public service advertising). It’s an extension of our larger Shelter Pet Adoption campaign, which aims to change people’s perceptions of shelter animals, and ultimately increase adoptions across the country.

Since we launched the campaign in 2009, the percentage of dogs and cats who were adopted from shelters has risen from 27 to 29 percent. Euthanasia of shelter pets is also down 10 percent. Sadly though, we still have work to do. 2.7 million healthy and treatable pets still lose their lives in shelters each year.

You can find more details about these videos in our press release: http://www.multivu.com/mnr/63767-ad-council-humane-society-shelter-pets-halo-maddies-fund-pet-adoption
We’ll be releasing one additional video next month, featuring Vampire Diaries and Army Wives’ actress Torrey DeVitto and her dog Beau. In the meantime, please visit the website TheShelterPetProject.org, where anyone can find the perfect shelter pet—even celebrities!

Mother Of All Talent: TVGN's New Reality Series

I'm posting here about TVGN's premiere of their brand new show, Mother Of All Talent, which airs on 10/22 at 8/7c. The original 8-episode series stars casting agents Nikki and Lorri, a mother-daughter duo and partners of the children's talent agency Tribune Talent, based in Staten Island, NY.
MOTHER OF ALL TALENT SHOW SUMMARY:
This eight-episode docu-series follows the dynamic mother-daughter duo Nikki and Lorri, who have built one of the nation’s leading talent agencies for kids straight from their quirky hometown in Staten Island, N.Y. This comedic yet aspirational series will capture what it takes to find and manage children in showbiz, while also contending with overly ambitious stage parents. Mother Nikki can be blunt and overbearing, while daughter Lorri always makes things right for the clients. Managing kids is a strange and demanding business. The jobs are real, the competition is stiff and the stakes are high. MOTHER OF ALL TALENT is produced by Jarrett Creative (“Boston’s Finest”) with Seth Jarrett and Julie Insogna-Jarrett as Executive Producers.

ABOUT SEDUCED AND ABANDONED
For ten days in May 2012, director James Toback and actor Alec Baldwin worked their way through the Cannes Film Festival in an attempt to secure financing for a proposed film project, a political-erotic Middle Eastern adventure inspired by Bernardo Bertolucci’s classic “Last Tango in Paris.” As they dashed around – hopeful against all odds – Toback filmed the hilarious and revealing proceedings, from pitches to billionaires, studio moguls, producers and international sales financiers, to intimate encounters with major movie stars and iconic directors whose passion for movies proves it’s still possible to transcend the madness.

The cinematic romp SEDUCED AND ABANDONED captures the tug-of-war between the eternal dream of creating pure art and the bracing reality of modern movie commerce. James Toback’s celebration of movie-making debuts MONDAY, OCT. 28 (9:00-10:45 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.

Other HBO playdates: Oct. 28 (5:20 a.m.) and 31 (6:45 p.m.), and Nov. 3 (5:15 p.m.), 6 (3:30 p.m., 1:00 a.m.), 9 (12:45 p.m.) and 12 (9:45 a.m.)
HBO2 playdates: Oct. 30 (8:00 p.m.) and Nov. 18 (2:50 p.m.)

HBO Documentary Films presents a weekly series this fall, debuting provocative new specials every Monday through Dec. 9. Other October films include: “Mondays at Racine” (Oct. 14); “Redemption” (Oct. 14); “Open Heart” (Oct. 14); and “Life According to Sam” (Oct. 21).

CINEMATIC ROMP SEDUCED AND ABANDONED, CHRONICLING

JAMES TOBACK AND ALEC BALDWIN’S QUEST TO MAKE A MOVIE,

DEBUTS OCT. 28, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO

“The movie business is the worst lover you’ve ever had in the sense that

you are seduced and abandoned over and over again.”

-- Alec Baldwin
For ten days in May 2012, director James Toback and actor Alec Baldwin worked their way through the Cannes Film Festival in an attempt to secure financing for a proposed film project, a political-erotic Middle Eastern adventure inspired by Bernardo Bertolucci’s classic “Last Tango in Paris.” As they dashed around – hopeful against all odds – Toback filmed the hilarious and revealing proceedings, from pitches to billionaires, studio moguls, producers and international sales financiers, to intimate encounters with major movie stars and iconic directors whose passion for movies proves it’s still possible to transcend the madness.

HBO2 playdates: Oct. 30 (8:00 p.m.) and Nov. 18 (2:50 p.m.)

HBO Documentary Films presents a weekly series this fall, debuting provocative new specials every Monday through Dec. 9. Other October films include: “Mondays at Racine” (Oct. 14); “Redemption” (Oct. 14); “Open Heart” (Oct. 14); and “Life According to Sam” (Oct. 21).

A dazzling collage of interviews, classic movie clips and colorful personalities, SEDUCED AND ABANDONED features a cast that includes, in addition to Alec Baldwin, Berenice Bejo, Bernardo Bertolucci, James Caan, Neve Campbell, Graydon Carter, Jessica Chastain, Diablo Cody, Francis Ford Coppola, Ryan Gosling, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Diane Kruger, Mike Medavoy, Ron Meyer, Jean Pigozzi, Roman Polanski, Brett Ratner, Martin Scorsese and Taki Theodoracopulos.

Toback and Baldwin explore memories and money, freedom and fate, commercialism and confessions. The outcome is a film about the nitty-gritty of great movies, revealing a Cannes that is in equal parts cinematic Valhalla and madcap bazaar.

SEDUCED AND ABANDONED documents their unpredictable experiences against the background of the bustling beauty of Cannes’ Promenade de la Croisette. The intimate and often poignant conversations with actors and industry giants constitute a heartfelt ode to everything alluring about cinema, from sex and death to the lingering hope of getting one more precious chance to tell one more story through film.

James Toback and Alec Baldwin first met on the set of Woody Allen’s “Alice.” A series of long conversations later led to the ideas that evolved into SEDUCED AND ABANDONED. The plan was to travel to Cannes to pitch their story, tentatively titled “Last Tango in Tikrit,” and explore the current state of the business of cinema. There was no script, providing the opportunity for something unique and memorable to emerge from the daily uncertainty.

Bertolucci, Coppola, Polanski and Scorsese provided invaluable insights through their reflections on their careers. But surprises also punctuate the film, as when Ryan Gosling offered, according to Toback, “the richest splash of brilliant anecdotes and observations about himself and the tribulations of film actors, as revealing as anything I’ve ever seen.”

Ultimately, the film turns the camera back on those who still can’t resist the devilish and beautiful temptations of a love affair with cinema, despite the outrageous odds against success. As the film builds to its climax, there’s no doubt that Toback and Baldwin remain hopelessly seduced. But will they be abandoned?

James Toback’s most recent film was the acclaimed documentary “Tyson.” An Academy Award® nominee for his screenplay for “Bugsy,” he has written and directed “Fingers,” “Love & Money,” “Exposed,” “The Big Bang,” “Two Girls and a Guy,” “Harvard Man,” “The Pick-up Artist,” “Black and White” and “When Will I Be Loved.” Toback also wrote the original screenplay for the Karel Reisz film “The Gambler.”

A HanWay films presentation of a Michael Mailer Films production, SEDUCED AND ABANDONED was directed by James Toback; produced by Michael Mailer, Alec Baldwin and James Toback; executive producers, Morris Levy, Alan Helene, Larry Herbert and Neal Schneider.

News: Mira Sorvino to Guest-Star on TNT's Falling Skies

Falling Skies Oct. 21, 2013

Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite) to Guest-Star on TNT's Falling Skies

Oscar® and Golden Globe® winner Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite) is set for a multiple-episode guest-starring arc in the fourth season of TNT's epic drama Falling Skies. Sorvino, whose credits include the hit comedy Romy and Michele's High School Reunion and Guillermo del Toro's sci-fi thriller Mimic, will play Sara, a woman far removed from her former life as a graphic designer. She is now dogged by death at every turn, yet she has never felt more alive, free or fearless. A chance encounter with guerrilla fighter John Pope (Colin Cunningham) leads her to join the resistance and develop a strong personal bond with the outlaw-turned-warrior.

CONAN

All New Serious Jibber-Jabber With Conan O’Brien Featuring

Entertainment Legend Mel Brooks Now Available Exclusively Online
O'Brien And Brooks Sit Down For An Eighty-Minute Conversation In The

Eighth Edition Of The Popular Web Series

In the newest installment of the web series, the iconic Mel Brooks stops by the Serious Jibber Jabber set to chat for over an hour on multiple intriguing topics ranging from the art of performing to lunch with Alfred Hitchcock. Unlike when Brooks appeared on CONAN in November 2013, JibberJabber gives O’Brien the opportunity to take the conversation beyond the time constraints of a broadcast talk show and delve into areas not usually discussed on air. This extended format allows for a one of a kind conversation that is as funny as it is revealing and touching.

"Getting the chance to speak with Mel Brooks for an hour and twenty minutes about virtually everything is most comedians' dying request. I'm just grateful I didn't have to go that far to get this incredible opportunity. This is the happiest I've ever seen myself on camera," added host Conan O’Brien.

The eighty-minute conversation allows Brooks, one of the few artists in history to ever receive the quartet of Oscar®, Emmy®, Tony® and Grammy® awards to reveal intimate stories from his time in the entertainment business. Brooks touches on the casting of his ground-breaking comedy Blazing Saddles, shares stories about The Producers, Young Frankenstein and the resonance of Spaceballs with younger generations. Brooks also reveals personal anecdotes about his relationships with Hollywood greats Sid Ceaser, Jerry Lewis, Johnny Carson and close friend Carl Reiner.

This special eighth episode of Serious Jibber Jabber with Conan O’Brien presented by Lexus premieres Monday, October 21. Other guests in the series have included Martin Short, Peter Guralnick, “The Simpsons” writers, Judd Apatow, Nate Silver, Edmund Morris and Jack White

DISCOVERY CHANNEL DEPLOYS ANIMATRONIC PENGUINS TO GO UNDERCOVER IN NEW SPECIAL “PENGUINS: WADDLE ALL THE WAY”

-Two Hour Special Airs Saturday, November 23 at 9pm ET/PT-

(LOS ANGELES, CA) Get ready to experience one of nature’s most adorable animals like never before in the U.S. premiere of the Discovery Channel/BBC co-production PENGUINS: WADDLE ALL THE WAY, airing Saturday, November 23 at 9pm ET/PT. From award-winning filmmaker John Downer (ELEPHANTS: SPY IN THE HERD, TIGER: SPY IN THE JUNGLE, POLAR BEARS: SPY ON THE ICE, WINGED PLANET) comes a two hour special event dedicated to exploring the colorful secrets behind the elusive world of penguins. Downer, who has transformed wildlife filmmaking by pioneering the use of spy cameras in order to capture nature’s most intimate moments, has taken natural history filmmaking to a whole different level with this new project. For PENGUINS: WADDLE ALL THE WAY, Downer developed a cutting-edge team of Spycams to offer viewers an unprecedented glimpse into the lives and challenges of three different penguin species: Emperor penguins in Antarctica, Rockhopper penguins on the Falkland Islands, and Humboldt penguins in the Atacama Desert of Peru.

These feisty and charismatic birds struggle to raise their young against extraordinary odds. Using animatronic cameras cleverly disguised as life-size penguins, Downer’s team was able to infiltrate the protective colonies from an entirely new angle, recording the emotional and oftentimes amusing behaviors of the penguins. More than fifty remote controlled cameras camouflaged as super-realistic penguins, chicks and even eggs allowed the filmmakers an unparalleled opportunity to waddle up close and personal with these flightless birds both on land and at sea without ruffling any feathers. The Penguincams can swim, toboggan, waddle, jump and even lay fake eggs. In fact, they appear so life-like that some of the penguins try to befriend them. Wherever the penguins go, Penguincam follows.

On Saturday, November 23 at 9pm ET/PT, Discovery Channel invites viewers to glimpse into the huddle for a fresh look at one of the world’s most beloved birds.

PENGUINS: WADDLE ALL THE WAY is produced by John Downer Productions for BBC and Discovery Channel. For John Downer Productions, John Downer is series producer with Phil Dalton as producer. For Discovery Channel, John Cavanagh is executive producer with Katy Jones Garrity as coordinating producer.

News: TNT issues summons for FRANKLIN & BASH Season 4

Oct. 18, 2013

Meyer & GosselaarTNT has ordered a fourth season of Franklin & Bash, the popular buddy drama starring Breckin Meyer (Heroes) and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (NYPD Blue). Produced by Four Sycamore Productions, Left Coast Productions and FanFare Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television, Franklin & Bash also stars Malcolm McDowell (Entourage) and Reed Diamond (24). TNT has ordered 10 episodes for season four, which is slated to air in summer 2014.

Franklin & Bash centers on Jared Franklin (Meyer) and Peter Bash (Gosselaar), two young, fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants street lawyers who caused a seismic culture clash when they joined Infeld-Daniels, a legendary, button-down law firm. The patriarch of the firm – the brilliant and eccentrically spontaneous Renaissance man Stanton Infeld (McDowell) – hired them because he admires how Jared sticks it to authority every chance he gets and how Peter is able to forge a personal connect with both judge and jury.

(New York, NY) – TLC’s HOARDING: BURIED ALIVE returns on Wednesday, October 30 at 10 PM with some of the most compelling cases in the hit series’ history. The fifth season, which returns with five new one-hours, will also air an additional nine episodes in spring 2014.

AWARD-WINNING ACTRESS JANE LYNCH TEAMS UP WITH DISCOVERY CHANNEL TO NARRATE NEW SPECIAL ‘PENGUINS: WADDLE ALL THE WAY’

-Two Hour Special Airs Saturday, November 23 at 9pm ET/PT-
Photos: http://tvmegasite.net/images/primetime/promo/discovery/penguins/

(LOS ANGELES, CA) Get ready to experience one of nature’s most adorable animals like never before in the U.S. premiere of the Discovery Channel/BBC co-production PENGUINS: WADDLE ALL THE WAY, airing Saturday, November 23 at 9pm ET/PT. From award-winning filmmaker John Downer (ELEPHANTS: SPY IN THE HERD, TIGER: SPY IN THE JUNGLE, POLAR BEARS: SPY ON THE ICE, WINGED PLANET) comes a two hour special event dedicated to exploring the colorful secrets behind the elusive world of penguins. The special will be narrated by Emmy-award winning actress Jane Lynch, best known for her role as one-liner powerhouse coach Sue Sylvester on GLEE. "I've been a big fan of Discovery's wildlife programming for years, and I am truly thrilled to be narrating PENGUINS: WADDLE ALL THE WAY. It’s hard to go wrong with a title like that. And seriously, is there anything cuter than a penguin?” said Jane Lynch in a statement.

For PENGUINS: WADDLE ALL THE WAY, filmmaker Downer developed a cutting-edge team of Spycams to offer viewers an unprecedented glimpse into the lives and challenges of three different penguin species: Emperor penguins in Antarctica, Rockhopper penguins on the Falkland Islands, and Humboldt penguins in the Atacama Desert of Peru. These feisty and charismatic birds struggle to raise their young against extraordinary odds. Using animatronic cameras cleverly disguised as life-size penguins, Downer’s team was able to infiltrate the protective colonies from an entirely new angle, recording the emotional and oftentimes amusing behaviors of the penguins. More than fifty remote controlled cameras camouflaged as super-realistic penguins, chicks and even eggs allowed the filmmakers an unparalleled opportunity to waddle up close and personal with these flightless birds both on land and at sea without ruffling any feathers. The Penguincams can swim, toboggan, waddle, jump and even lay fake eggs. In fact, they appear so life-like that some of the penguins try to befriend them. Wherever the penguins go, Penguincam follows.

On Saturday, November 23 at 9pm ET/PT, Discovery Channel invites viewers to glimpse into the huddle for a fresh look at one of the world’s most beloved birds.

PENGUINS: WADDLE ALL THE WAY is produced by John Downer Productions for BBC and Discovery Channel. For John Downer Productions, John Downer is series producer with Phil Dalton as producer. For Discovery Channel, John Cavanagh is executive producer with Katy Jones Garrity as coordinating producer.

FAMILY DRAMA REACHES NEW HEIGHTS ON TLC’S SHOCKING RETURN OF ‘GYPSY SISTERS’

--The series returns with a special two-hour premiere on Thursday, December 5 at 9 PM ET/PT—

In West Virginia’s Gypsy community, the Stanley family’s emotions run as wild as their wedding gowns. Putting everything on the line to protect their reputations and relationships, the outrageous ladies are back and bigger than ever on an all new season of TLC’s GYPSY SISTERS, premiering on Thursday, December 5 at 9 PM ET/PT.

GYPSY SISTERS delves into the lives of six relatives (Nettie, Kayla, Mellie, Sheena, Annie and JoAnn) as they outspokenly set their own rules in the suburban town of Martinsburg. The drama continues with eight new episodes as the girls’ tempers are hot and they are out for vengeance. In the premiere, a web of lies and Mellie’s meddling causes Kayla and Nettie to reach a boiling point that erupts into one of the most outrageous and violent brawls in reality television history.

Black sheep Mellie is also pregnant and, after exchanging vows and blows during her wedding ceremony, has alienated herself from everyone in her inner circle. On top of that, her marriage lasted six days and she is back from serving a second weekend jail sentence.

In an environment where fistfights and family go hand and hand, will the ladies mend their broken relationships and show that they can love as much as they can hate? Or has the damage been done and the emotional and physical scars from previous arguments proven to be too deep?

GYPSY SISTERS is produced for TLC by Firecracker Films.

It's Going to Be a Geeky Halloween as TBS Presents Four Special Episodes of

The Big Bang Theory Oct. 31, Beginning at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)

Big Bang - Justice LeagueTBS invites viewers to spend Halloween with the funniest geeks on television as the network presents four popular, Halloween-themed episodes from the award-winning sitcom The Big Bang Theory. The episodes will air on TBS Thursday, Oct. 31, beginning at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). Here's the complete schedule

9 p.m. – "The Middle Earth Paradigm" – Penny hosts a Halloween party, putting Leonard, Sheldon, Wolowitz, and Koothrappali through a new test of their social skills.

9:30 p.m. – "The Codpiece Topology" – Seeing Penny with another guy sends Leonard back to Leslie Winkle (Sarah Gilbert), much to Sheldon's dismay.

About The Big Bang Theory

Big Bang - Middle EarthThe Big Bang Theory centers on brilliant physicists Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon (Jim Parsons), the kind of brilliant minds that understand how the universe works. But none of that genius helps them interact with people, especially women. All this begins to change when a free-spirited beauty named Penny (Kaley Cuoco) moves in next door. Sheldon, Leonard’s roommate, is quite content spending his nights playing Klingon Boggle with their socially dysfunctional friends, fellow CalTech scientists Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) and Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar). However, Leonard sees in Penny a whole new universe of possibilities ... including love.

The Big Bang Theory comes to TBS from Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. Created by Chuck Lorre, The Big Bang Theory is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television, with Lorre, Bill Prady and Lee Aronsohn serving as executive producers.

USA NETWORK AND FEEDING AMERICA PARTNER TO RALLY FANS AROUND COMBATING HUNGER

Drive To Put Food On The Table For The Holidays Kicks Off at USA’s Modern Family Fan Appreciation Day on October 28 and Runs Online Through Mid-December

USA to Match Monetary Contributions to Feeding America

NEW YORK, October 28, 2013 – With the holiday season approaching, USA Network is teaming up with Feeding America® rallying USA fans across the country to help put food on the table this holiday season for less fortunate families across America. Kicking off Monday, October 28 in conjunction with USA’s Modern Family Fan Appreciation Day live table read with the entire cast in Los Angeles, the pledge drive will run online through National Family Week and into mid-December.

To participate in this important cause, fans will be encouraged to go to modernfamily.usanetwork.com to take at least one of three simple steps to support Feeding America, including “liking” their local food bank on Facebook, volunteering at their local food bank, or donating to Feeding America, where $1 provides nine meals. USA Network will match the monetary donations up to $30,000. The network will drive awareness of the effort on-air during National Family Week in November.

“Forty-nine million Americans lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis. This Modern Family event is a great platform to help shed light on this enormous problem and encourage people to join Feeding America’s efforts to address it,” said Toby Graff, senior vice president of public affairs for USA Network. “The ongoing online pledge drive will help guarantee that many more American families will have food on their holiday tables.”

“We are both delighted and honored to be chosen by USA Network as its charity partner,” said Leah Ray, vice president of corporate partnerships at Feeding America. “Given that one in five children faces hunger in our country, receiving support from everyday modern families can help provide food to families in need.”

The Modern Family Fan Appreciation Day will gather 1,000 plus MOFYs (Modern Family fanatics) at the Westwood Village Theatres for a live table read of a fan-voted favorite episode with the entire Modern Family cast. MOFYs also will be treated to a rare and candid conversation with the cast as well as the series creators, Chris Lloyd and Steve Levitan, in a Q&A moderated by E! Network’s Marc Malkin. Fans at home can participate in the excitement virtually on Mofy Nation by watching a live streaming of the red carpet from 6-7pm PT, where E! Network’s Ross Matthews will be conducting interviews with the cast prior to the start of the event.

Modern Family is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television in association with Picador Productions and Steven Levitan Prods., stars Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould and Rico Rodriguez. Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd are creators/executive producers. Danny Zucker, Dan O’Shannon, Bill Wrubel, Paul Corrigan, Brad Walsh, Abraham Higginbotham and Jeffrey Richman also serve as executive producers.

Feeding America is a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that leads the fight against hunger in the United States.

MOONSHINERS and PORTER RIDGE Return to Discovery Nov. 5

MOONSHINERS returns for a third season on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 9PM followed by PORTER RIDGE at 10PM.

DISCOVERY CHANNEL’S HIT SERIES MOONSHINERS RETURNS FOR A THIRD SEASON ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5 AT 9PM

-Porter Ridge Returns Tuesday, November 5 at 10 PM-

Discovery Channel is going back woods Tuesday nights, visiting two unique and fascinating groups of people, with very different occupations. On “the ridge” they may not have backwood stills and bootleggers, but the folks of PORTER RIDGE have one thing in common with the MOONSHINERS - the importance of American family traditions.

Season three of MOONSHINERS premieres on Tuesday, November 5, at 9PM/ET followed by PORTER RIDGE at 10 PM ET/PT.

Moonshining, a multi-million dollar industry based on a practice that precedes the founding fathers, brings shiners from all across Appalachia, and as far south as Mississippi, who are working with the elements to create the stuff of legends. MOONSHINERS shares the stories of the men and women who keep tradition alive, and make a fortune in the process, distilling illegal whiskey in the back woods of their respective territories. The series also follows the law enforcement tasked with capturing shiners in the act of making moonshine. While moonshine can bring a pretty price, it’s all crafted outside the bounds of federal and state laws. The cat and mouse game between moonshiners and law enforcement becomes a high stakes exercise of constant pursuit, near captures and repeated escapes. Moonshiners must constantly adapt to the changing methods of law enforcement and apply new and covert methods of distillation and distribution to increase profits while staying one step ahead of the law.

This season, veteran shiner, Tim Smith, has a startling announcement that will forever change the face of moonshining in the region. Tim’s new venture means Tickle is on his own and he’ll need a crash course in still building to prove it’s his time to shine. Traditionalists Jeff and Mark go modern in an attempt to dominate and expand their territory, while rookie moonshiners Josh and Bill return with knowledge gained and a serious chip on their shoulders. Veteran and larger than life moonshiner Jim Tom also return as an influx of new shiners creates a wave of competition the likes of which has never been seen before. But, shiners are found throughout the country, and this season we’ll have our first taste of Mississippi Moonshines, made in the swamps by Mike, Shot and Darlene.

Tucked away in the rolling hills of Indiana, far from big city life, the crew of PORTER RIDGE continues to live by its own set of rules and returns with more of their crazy shenanigans Tuesday, November 5 at 10 PM ET/PT on Discovery. Picking up right where this “Hillijack” crew left off, junk yard owner Terry is up to another one of his schemes and this time has the chance to buy his dream car, a legendary ’72 Cutlass. In an attempt to get some quick cash he gets a car crusher to the Junkyard – but on the condition he can provide fifty cars to crush. When Terry comes up short on junk cars to crush, he has to resort to drastic measures. Meanwhile, Jeff defends his bear, Bob’s, fishing skills to Barry and Elvis Larry who think he’s getting too domesticated so they embark on a fishing trip to put Bob’s hunting skills to the test. It’s just another day on The Ridge - where a guy can have a yard full of pet grizzly bears, use dynamite recreationally and hold family demolition derbies - and that’s exactly what they do.

MOONSHINERS is produced for Discovery Channel by Magilla Entertainment, where Matthew Ostrom, Laura Johnson, Brian Flanagan and Chris Tetens are executive producers. Joseph Schneier is executive producer for Discovery Channel with Lisbeth Lozano as coordinating producer.

PORTER RIDGE is produced for Discovery Channel by Gurney Productions. Executive Producers are Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney. Co-Executive Producers are Todd Hurvitz, Doug Weitzbuch and Brandon Killion. For Discovery Channel, Executive Producer is Joe Weinstock.


THE CHALLENGER DISASTER TO SIMULCAST ON SCIENCE CHANNEL AND DISCOVERY CHANNEL SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16 AT 9 PM ET/PT

--Academy-Award Winner William Hurt to Lead an All-Star Cast--

(Silver Spring, Md.) – Science Channel and Discovery Channel announced today that the networks will simulcast Science Channel’s first scripted feature film, THE CHALLENGER DISASTER, starring Academy-Award winning actor William Hurt as Nobel Prize-winning scientist Dr. Richard Feynman. Based upon Feynman’s book “What Do You Care What Other People Think?”, THE CHALLENGER DISASTER, tells the largely unknown, riveting story of Feynman’s efforts to uncover the cause of the Challenger explosion in 1986. THE CHALLENGER DISASTER premieres Saturday, November 16 from 9-11 PM ET/PT.

Co-produced by the BBC, THE CHALLENGER DISASTER features powerful performances headlined by Mr. Hurt as physicist Dr. Richard Feynman. Joining Hurt is actor Bruce Greenwood who plays fellow commissioner U.S. Air Force General Donald Kutyna in the second lead role. He is joined by Brian Dennehy as William Rogers, Chairman of the Presidential Commission, actress Joanne Whalley who plays Feynman’s wife Gweneth, and Eve Best as astronaut Sally Ride.

Dr. Feynman was chosen by William Robert Graham, one of his former students and NASA’s acting administrator, to lend his skills to the Presidential Commission tasked with investigating the disaster’s cause. Reluctant to participate, Feynman followed his scientific instincts during the investigation, unafraid of raising questions in the face of pressure from several commission members. He determined that two of the shuttle’s O-rings failed during launch. In a famous televised hearing Feynman demonstrated that the O-ring was not as pliable as previously thought by submerging a piece of the O-ring in a glass of ice water. At the investigation’s conclusion Feynman produced an essential report, “Appendix F – Personal Observations on the Reliability of the Shuttle”, that was presented to President Reagan independent of the commission’s report.

With medevac helicopters grounded by a heavy rainstorm, Nurse Foster is all that stands between life and death for this patient. When two glamorous women are admitted to the ER in extreme respiratory distress, Dr. Murdoc Kaleghi suspects their symptoms are somehow connected. After figuring out what caused their deadly symptoms, he’s now in a race to save their lives. Multiple mysteries confront ER Dr. Aaron Billin when the local sheriff brings a disoriented coin collector into his E.R. Before long, they’ve solved a crime, but figuring out why his patient is at death’s door proves to be another challenge…and time is running out.

· Chocolate Pudding Premieres Friday, November 8 at 10PM (ET/PT) A young man is found wearing only underwear and running shoes. He is brought into Dr. Kathleen Clem’s ER where she determines he is probably suffering a psychotic break.

Just when Dr. Neal Aulick thinks he has the problem solved, his patient’s symptoms flare up again. A reluctant patient checks himself into the ER with a very swollen face.

· Rattled Premieres Friday, November 15 at 10 PM (ET/PT) When a hiker tells Dr. John Lucas she’s been bitten by a rattlesnake, he’s skeptical. But he soon learns that she’s right when her condition becomes critical. Dr. Lucas and his staff race against the clock to find enough anti-venom to save her life. As a first year intern, ER Doctor Andy Kahn is tested by an apparent psychiatric patient: a man who won’t stop masturbating. But his relentless pursuit of a diagnosis surprises everyone when the man’s life-threatening condition is finally revealed. Then, what begins as an unexplained seizure in the maternity ward becomes a trial by fire for ER doctor Tad McReynolds who’s called to the scene to save the young mother’s life.

SIX LADIES LEAVE THE LAST FRONTIER FOR SUN-SOAKED MIAMI

ON TLC’S NEW SERIES ALASKAN WOMEN LOOKING FOR LOVE

(Los Angeles, Ca.) – This fall, six native Alaskan women tempt fate to find true love in TLC’s new series ALASKAN WOMEN LOOKING FOR LOVE. As these ladies say, when it comes to dating on the island of Kodiak, Alaska, “the odds are good, but the goods can be a little odd.” Faced with men consumed by fishing and hunting, often sporting long hair and scruffy beards, these women are fed up with their options. Ready to exchange their rugged boots for high heels and fancy dates, these ladies leave the safety and security of their homes and journey 5,000 miles to the Sunshine State, in search of adventure and their perfect match. ALASKAN WOMEN LOOKING FOR LOVE airs Sunday at 10 PM (ET/PT).

In this six-part series, viewers will follow these friends as they make a splash in sexy, sun-soaked—and culturally-opposite—Miami Beach, where they hope love awaits. Determined, the women get jobs, scour the beaches and risk everything to fit in and find suitors—but they quickly discover that they are fish out of water. From firefighters and football players to personal trainers and cops, will they have success meeting the man of their dreams? Or is Miami Beach too big for them to handle? And if they do find love, can their new guys manage the rough and tough Alaskan lifestyle or will finding their Prince Charming only be a fairytale?

DISCOVERY CHANNEL VENTURES INTO THE PERILOUS WORLD OF KODIAK ISLAND, ALASKA IN NEW SERIES ‘KODIAK’

http://tvmegasite.net/images/primetime/promo/discovery/kodiak/kodiak1.jpg

(LOS ANGELES, CA) Kodiak Island is one of the most remote places on Earth. Home to some of the best fishing and deadliest hunting on the planet, Kodiak Island is a land of natural treasures. Brown bears, elk, deer and salmon are some of the many attractions that lure sportsmen from all around the world. The island is made up of 3,500 square miles of virtually untouched, harsh Alaskan wilderness, frequented by deadly predators and erratic weather. For a group of guides leading hunters and anglers to the wild edge, every day is a roll of the dice. Life here is tough. In Discovery Channel’s new four-part series KODIAK, set to premiere in 2014, viewers will experience the struggles of three multi-generational families risking it all to make a living in this in this dangerous environment.

Even for the most experienced outdoorsmen, survival on Kodiak Island is a daily struggle. The island, referred to by the locals as ‘The Rock’, is populated by as many as 3,500 Kodiak bears – one for every square mile of land – each weighing in at over 1,500 pounds. Too many bears ultimately means starvation for the species, so carefully regulated hunting is the only solution. And there is also fierce weather to contend with. Kodiak Island averages 70 inches of rain and 70 inches of snow per year – and fog is common. The winters are long and cold, and it can be a struggle to find both food and heat. Those who reside here truly live on the edge. For the bush pilots, master guides, expert hunters, survival experts and adrenaline junkies who call Kodiak Island home, each and every day brings new challenges.

"Alaska has always been surrounded by a veil of mystique, and several of our highest rated shows take place there. We introduced our viewers to the gold miners of Porcupine Creek in GOLD RUSH…the tight-knit community of Tanana in YUKON MEN…the Kilcher family of Homer in ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER…the bush pilots of Unalakleet in FLYING WILD ALASKA…and now we are excited to introduce our viewers to the legendary forests and waters of Kodiak Island, one of the most dangerous and isolated places on Earth,” said Denise Contis, Executive Vice President of Production and Development for Discovery Channel.

KODIAK is an authentic story of survival on one of American’s last true frontiers. And when the stakes are high, so can be the rewards. In order to defy the odds and reap the riches of the harshest wilderness in North America, those who inhabit KODIAK must stick together.

FX SETS JANUARY PREMIERES OF JUSTIFIED, ARCHER AND CHOZEN

Emmy® and Peabody® Award Winning Drama Justified Debuts Tuesday, January 7

Archer Moves to Mondays Paired with Chozen Starting January 13

Season 2 of FX’s Award-Winning Drama The Americans Slated for February Debut

FXX TO PAIR ALI G: REZURECTION WITH LEGIT IN FEBRUARY

LOS ANGELES, November 5, 2013 – FX has locked down the January premiere dates of its original series including the Emmy Award-winning drama Justified, the hit animated comedy Archer, and its new animated comedy Chozen, which had been scheduled to run on FXX but now will be paired with Archer for a Monday night animation block. With the move of Chozen to FX, FXX will pair Ali G: Rezurection with the critically acclaimed original comedy series Legit. The scheduling announcements were made today by Chuck Saftler, President of Program Strategy and COO, FX Networks

“Winter has become an incredibly active time for the launch of original series for FX Networks,” said Saftler. “FXX provides us with greater scheduling flexibility and our recent deal for Ali G: Rezurection created a strategic opportunity to pair it with Legit, two compatible shows that will play very well together. This allows us the opportunity to use Archer – our highest-rated comedy – as a powerful launch springboard for Chozen and help us build our animation brand.”

Up first for FX in the new year is Season 5 of the Emmy and Peabody Award winning drama series Justified, which premieres on Tuesday, January 7 at 10 PM ET/PT. This season, Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) confronts the Crowes, a deadly, lawless family from Florida intent on settling in Harlan with new criminal enterprises in mind. Meanwhile, Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) struggles to free his imprisoned fiancée Ava (Joelle Carter) as he partners with the Dixie Mafia’s Wynn Duffy (Jere Burns). The series stars Emmy Award nominated Timothy Olyphant as Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens. Series co-stars are Emmy Award nominated Walton Goggins, Nick Searcy, Joelle Carter, Jacob Pitts, Erica Tazel, and Jere Burns. Based on the late Elmore Leonard’s novella “Fire in the Hole,” Justified was developed by Executive Producer/Showrunner Graham Yost. Carl Beverly, Sarah Timberman, Michael Dinner, Fred Golan, Dave Andron, Don Kurt, and Elmore Leonard are Executive Producers of Justified. The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions. FX has ordered 13 episodes for the upcoming season.

Season 5 of FX’s hit animated comedy series Archer moves to a new night, airing Mondays at 10 PM ET/PT beginning on January 13. The award-winning series has become the highest-rated comedy series on FX, and routinely won its time-period last season in delivery of Adults 18-34. Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy that revolves around the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS) and the lives of its employees. Although their work of espionage, reconnaissance missions, wiretapping and undercover surveillance is daunting and dangerous, every covert operation and global crisis is actually just another excuse for the ISIS staff to undermine, sabotage and betray each other for personal gain. The series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, Adam Reed, and Lucky Yates. Archer was created by Adam Reed who also serves as Executive Producer alongside Executive Producer Matt Thompson and their Floyd County Productions who animates the series. Archer is produced by FX Productions. FX has ordered 13 episodes for the upcoming season.

The series premiere of Chozen is set for Monday, January 13 at 10:30 PM ET/PT. Chozen is an animated comedy about its title character, “Chozen,” a gay white rapper fresh out of prison. Armed with a new message, Chozen is on a quest for redemption and to claim his rightful position as the world’s top rap artist. His music and lyrics take aim at the stereotypes of machismo and misogyny that is synonymous with rap music. And his new world view has been shaped by his time in prison. The voice cast features Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Buress, Michael Pena, Nick Swardson, Kathryn Hahn, and Method Man. Grant Dekernion, who created Chozen, serves as Writer/Executive Producer of the series, and Tom Brady serves as Executive Producer/Showrunner. Danny McBride, Jody Hill, David Gordon Green, and Brandon James from Rough House Pictures (Eastbound & Down) are Executive Producers. Adam Reed and Matt Thompson of Floyd County Productions (Archer) are Executive Producers and their company will animate the series. FX has ordered 13 episodes of Chozen. The series is produced by FX Productions.

Season 2 of the award-winning drama series The Americans is scheduled to premiere in February on FX.

FXX will launch Season 2 of its acclaimed hit comedy series Legit and the debut of Ali G: Rezurection in February. Legit, which aired on FX in its inaugural season, was one of the most critically acclaimed new comedies this year. Jim Jefferies, who co-created the series with Peter O’Fallon, stars as an edgy, foul mouthed stand-up comedian from Australia, in his mid-30s and living in LA, struggling to make his life and career more "legit," only to find it a difficult, uncomfortable uphill struggle every step of the way. Jim is encouraged in his quest by Steve, his neurotic best friend and roommate, a cyber law library salesman who struggles to stay on his feet in the wake of a divorce, and Steve’s brother, Billy, who suffers from advanced staged Muscular Dystrophy and is confined to a wheelchair. Legit stars Jim Jefferies as Jim, Dan Bakkedahl as Steve, and DJ Qualls as Billy. Peter O'Fallon, Jim Jefferies, and Lisa Blum serve as Executive Producers. The series is produced by FX Productions. FXX has ordered 13 episodes for the upcoming season.

Ali G: Rezurection includes every episode of Da Ali G Show with new, original introductions starring Baron Cohen, along with the BAFTA Award winning English episodes of Da Ali G Show that never aired on American television and The Best of Ali G. Da Ali G Show debuted on Channel 4 in the U.K. in 2003. A character created by Baron Cohen, Ali G originated on Channel 4’s The 11 O’clock Show and was spun off into Da Ali G Show. Baron Cohen produced 18 episodes, with 12 of those episodes airing on HBO in the U.S. Alongside the eponymous Ali G, Da Ali G Show also features the much beloved Borat and Bruno characters, both of whom later headlined critically-acclaimed feature films. In addition to the Ali G episodes, FXX will receive and air all of the Ali G segments and vignettes from The 11 O’clock Show.

Which Will Debut in 2014

Nine Episodes Remain in Current Installment of American Horror Story: Coven

Airing Wednesdays at 10:00 PM ET/PT

AHS: Coven Finale Scheduled for January 29

LOS ANGELES, NOVEMBER 6, 2013 – FX has ordered a fourth installment of American Horror Story, the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning miniseries franchise from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, it was announced today by John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions. The network has ordered 13 episodes from Twentieth Century Fox Television.

“Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer,” said Landgraf. “Time and time again he reinvents the form. What he, co-creator Brad Falchuk and their producers Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, Jennifer Salt, James Wong, Brad Buecker, Jessica Sharzer, Douglas Petrie, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Alexis Martin Woodall and the entire production team and cast responsible for the American Horror Story franchise have done is nothing short of extraordinary. Every year, they create a riveting and brilliant new miniseries. AHS: Coven is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the next installment will be even better.”

Of the first three installments of American Horror Story, Coven has far surpassed the ratings of its predecessors, Murder House (2011) and Asylum (2012). Season-to date, AHS: Coven is averaging 7.74 million Total Viewers, 5.46 million Adults 18-49 and 3.14 million Adults 18-34, which are increases of +77% in Total Viewers, +67% in Adults 18-49 and +60% in Adults 18-34 over AHS: Murder House. Coven is outpacing AHS: Asylum by +83% in Total Viewers, +71% in Adults 18-49, and +68% in Adults 18-34. American Horror Story: Coven is easily on pace to record the highest average delivery of Adults 18-34 of any program in FX history. Coven’s first two episodes were the highest-rated single telecasts in delivery of Adults 18-34 in FX’s history. Coven also ranks as the highest-rated miniseries of 2013 in delivery of Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34.

Nine all-new episodes remain in American Horror Story: Coven airing Wednesdays at 10:00 PM ET/PT with the finale scheduled to air on January 29. In the fifth episode, “Burn, Witch. Burn!” - (Airs TONIGHT, 10:00 PM ET/PT) – Besieged by Marie Laveau’s (Angela Bassett) army, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) unleashes a new power. Fiona (Jessica Lange) and Myrtle (Frances Conroy) clash over control of the Coven. Madame LaLaurie (Kathy Bates) is confronted by old ghosts. (Written by Jessica Sharzer; Directed by Jeremy Podeswa)
Since its inception, the American Horror Story miniseries franchise has combined for a total of 34 Emmy Award nominations. AHS: Murder House tied for the most nominations of any program in 2011 with 17, and AHS: Asylum received the most nominations of any program in 2012, also with 17.

American Horror Story: Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.

American Horror Story: Coven features an extraordinary cast including Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe, Frances Conroy, Lily Rabe, Denis O’Hare, Jamie Brewer, Alexander Dreymon, Josh Hamilton, Patti LuPone, and Danny Huston. Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, James Wong, Jennifer Salt, and Brad Buecker are Executive Producers of American Horror Story: Coven. It is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television.

- Six-Part Series Premieres on November 11 at 10PM ET/PT -

Photos: http://tvmegasite.net/images/primetime/promo/discovery/grylls/

(LOS ANGELES, CA) Survival expert and outdoor adventurer Bear Grylls returns to Discovery Channel in the all-new series BEAR GRYLLS: ESCAPE FROM HELL. The six-part series will kick off with a special premiere at 10PM ET/PT on November 11 before moving to its regular time slot of Wednesdays at 10PM/ET starting November 13.

In BEAR GRYLLS: ESCAPE FROM HELL, Bear takes his survival expertise one step further as he reveals the incredible stories of ordinary people stranded in devastatingly dire situations. Coupled with archival footage and interviews with the survivors, Bear will pit himself against the very same dangers and scenarios. He will re-live their journeys through first-hand experience, and show viewers how to survive in some of the world’s most desolate landscapes. “I am super excited to be working with Discovery again – the channel where the MAN VS. WILD journey began,” said Bear Grylls. “BEAR GRYLLS: ESCAPE FROM HELL, and any future endeavors, will be intense—but that’s where the fun is! MAN VS. WILD took me to some of the toughest climates and terrains out there, and this new series is an exciting evolution of that. The aim is to follow incredible real-life survival stories and demonstrate dynamic life-saving know-how along the way.”

BEAR GRYLLS: ESCAPE FROM HELL is a revealing insight into the human spirit under intense pressure. From avalanches to dangerous river crossings to ferocious sand storms, Bear will risk his life by trekking in the shoes of these survivors, analyzing and dissecting the survival techniques they employed and providing expert advice and tips for the best possible survival strategy. Bear travels the planet to give a complete picture of survival, from the scorching Saharan desert to the snow covered mountains of North America. Each landscape presents its own unique set of challenges, but they also share universal themes of survival: hydration, shelter, warmth, food and navigation.

BEAR GRYLLS: ESCAPE FROM HELL premieres at 10PM ET/PT on November 11 before moving to its regular time slot of Wednesdays at 10PM/ET.

Beverly Hills, California – November 6, 2013– Netflix will premiere the second season of its original series “Lilyhammer” starring Steven Van Zandt (“The Sopranos,” E Street Band) on Friday, December 13 at 12:01 AM PT.

“The second season of 'Lilyhammer' is an amped up ride that gives us Steven Van Zandt at his glorious, baddest, best,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix. “Whether you enjoyed season one or are catching it for the first time, 'Lilyhammer' is a mob show like no other.”

“Lilyhammer” follows former gangster Frank “The Fixer” Tagliano (Van Zandt) as he enters the federal witness protection program trading the mean streets of New York for the icy fjords of Norway, forging a new life among the locals of Lillehammer. Season two continues with Frank living under the alias of Johnny Henriksen, a successful nightclub owner and father of two. As if life couldn’t get more complicated than balancing fatherhood with running a criminal operation, everything Frank cares for is threatened when his former mob associates find out he is still alive.

LIFETIME GREENLIGHTS TELEVISION ADAPTATION OF

TONY® NOMINATED THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL

WITH EMMY® AND TONY AWARD WINNER CICELY TYSON AND

EMMY NOMINEE VANESSA WILLIAMS

Golden Globe® Nominee and Grammy® Award Winner Blair Underwood and

SAG Award Nominee Keke Palmer Join the All-Star Cast

LOS ANGELES (November 5, 2013) – This year’s Tony Award nominated Broadway revival hit The Trip to Bountiful is currently in production in Atlanta for a television adaptation to premiere on Lifetime in 2014. The film stars original cast members Cicely Tyson (The Help) and Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty), who are joined by Blair Underwood (In Treatment) alongside Keke Palmer (CrazySexyCool). The Trip to Bountiful, the inspiring story of one woman’s quest to reconnect with her past in order to ensure her family’s future, is the best known work by Oscar®, Pulitzer Prize, and Emmy Award-winning author Horton Foote. Set during the final years of the Jim Crow South, The Trip to Bountiful is a courageous and moving story of liberation, as well as a humor-filled celebration of the human spirit. Michael Wilson, who directed the celebrated play, makes his television directorial debut with this project.

In The Trip to Bountiful, Carrie Watts (Tyson) begrudgingly lives with her busy, overprotective son, Ludie (Underwood) and her snooty daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae (Williams). No longer able to drive and forbidden to travel alone, she wishes for freedom from the confines of the house and begs her son to take her on a visit to her hometown of Bountiful. When he refuses, Mrs. Watts is undeterred and makes an escape to the local bus station, where she befriends Thelma (Palmer), a young woman traveling home. When Ludie and Jessie Mae discover she is gone, they call in law enforcement to help, but Mrs. Watts is one step ahead of them and convinces the local sheriff to help her on her journey home to Bountiful.

In addition to Tyson’s Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for her Broadway portrayal of Mrs. Carrie, The Trip to Bountiful also received Tony nominations for Best Revival of a Play, Best Featured Actress in a Play (Condola Rashad) and Best Sound Design. Drama Desk nominations include Outstanding Revival of a Play and Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play (Williams), while Outer Critics Circle nominations include Outstanding Revival of a Play (Broadway or Off-Broadway), Outstanding Director of a Play (Wilson) and Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play (Williams). Drama League nominations recognized the play for Outstanding Revival of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play and both Tyson and Williams for Distinguished Performance. The Trip to Bountiful closed its triumphant Broadway run on October 9.

Foote originally wrote The Trip to Bountiful for television in 1953 and it made its Broadway debut in 1954. The play was adapted into a motion picture in 1985, when star Geraldine Page won an Academy Award® for Best Actress and Foote was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.

USA NETWORK ORDERS FOURTH SEASON OF CAPTIVATING
HIT SERIES “SUITS”

CREATOR/SHOWRUNNER AARON KORSH SIGNS OVERALL DEAL WITH UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS

Drama Ranks Among Cable’s Top Five Scripted Series in P18-49 in Q3

NEW YORK – October 24, 2013 – USA Network announced today a 16-episode fourth season renewal of the critically-acclaimed original drama SUITS. Additionally, creator and showrunner Aaron Korsh has signed an overall deal with Universal Cable Productions to continue his work on SUITS and to develop new scripted series.

“As a leading cable drama, SUITS is at the top of its game and continues to grow in the key demographics, drawing a passionate, young and loyal audience,” said Chris McCumber, President of USA Network. “Aaron Korsh consistently pushes the boundaries of storytelling and the series promises to deliver a provocative fourth season.”

“From the beginning, we’ve seen SUITS as a long term player for the studio and we look forward to extending our relationship with Aaron. Harvey, Mike and the rest of the SUITS crew are characters that have created a dedicated and enthusiastic audience," said Jeff Wachtel, President and Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and head of UCP.

In third quarter, SUITS was among the top 5 in P18-49 and the top 10 in P25-54 in all of TV’s primetime scripted series. The drama was the #1 scripted series on television, broadcast or cable, Tuesday nights among P18-49. The series centers on a fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm led by legendary lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and his brilliant, but not-technically-legal associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams). From Universal Cable Productions, SUITS also stars Rick Hoffman ("Samantha Who”), Gina Torres ("Firefly”), Sarah Rafferty (“Brothers & Sisters”) and Meghan Markle ("CSI Miami").

Season three of SUITS continues in first quarter 2014 following the Olympics, with the capitivating final six episodes, featuring guest star appearances by the most decorated Olympian of all-time, Michael Phelps (who happens to be a SUITS fan) and Gabriel Macht’s famous father, Stephen Macht (“The Monster Squad,” “General Hospital”). Picking up in the wake of an emotional and shattering murder trial, Harvey (G. Macht) and Jessica (Torres) address the firm’s future, while Louis (Hoffman) threatens to expose the truth about Mike (Adams).

The entire series to-date will be available for binge viewing via video-on-demand and TVEverywhere leading up to the mid-season premiere this winter.

This season, USA broke new digital ground as it rolled out innovative social and digital engagements including second screen syncs for every episode. Leading into the premiere, USA was the first network to partner with Tinder, a social discovery app, which introduced SUITS characters into people’s match stream. This generated a recording-setting half a million matches in four weeks. The network also rolled out a new chapter of the award-winning Suits Recruits, an interactive, multi-platform social game. Suitors engaged in record numbers with the legal sequel Suits Recruits: Class Action, which showed an increase of 76% in uniques and 81% in visits from last year.

From Universal Cable Productions, SUITS was created and is executive produced by Aaron Korsh ("The Deep End"). Doug Liman (COVERT AFFAIRS, the "Bourne" trilogy, "Mr. and Mrs. Smith") and David Bartis (COVERT AFFAIRS, "The O.C.") of Hypnotic also serve as executive producers and Gene Klein (COVERT AFFAIRS) serves as co-executive producer. SUITS is shot on location in Toronto, ON.

CASTING CONTINUES ON FX’S ALL-STAR ORIGINAL VERSION OF FARGO

Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt, Kate Walsh and Glenn Howerton

Among the Stars Joining Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman and Colin Hanks

In the 10-Episode Limited Series

LOS ANGELES, October 11, 2013 – Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt, Kate Walsh and Glenn Howerton are among the stars joining Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman and Colin Hanks in the FX limited series Fargo, an original adaptation of the classic Academy Award®-winning feature film. The announcement was made today by Eric Schrier, President, Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions and Steve Stark, President, Television Production, MGM Television. Production begins in November in Calgary, Canada and the series is slated to premiere next spring on FX.

FX’s Fargo will feature an all-new “true crime” story, following a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and “Minnesota nice” that has made the film an enduring classic. As previously announced, Oscar® winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as “Lorne Malvo,” a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman “Lester Nygaard,” played by BAFTA Award® winner and Emmy®-nominated Martin Freeman. Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy Gus Grimly, a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety when he comes face-to-face with a killer.

Rounding out Fargo’s colorful cast of recurring characters will be Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad), as “Deputy Bill Olson,” a Bemidji deputy with seniority over his younger, smarter and more ambitious fellow deputy, “Molly Solverson,” played by Allison Tolman (Sordid Lives), who will be a series regular. Golden Globe™ and Emmy-nominated Oliver Platt (The Big C, and the upcoming features Lucky Them, Chef and Kill the Messenger), will play “Stavros Milos,” the Supermarket King of Minnesota. Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Kate Walsh (Private Practice) will star as “Gina Hess,” a former stripper and mother of teenaged twin boys. Glenn Howerton, star of FXX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, will play “Don Chumph,” an ambitious personal trainer. Joey King (The Conjuring, Oz: The Great and Powerful) will play Gus’s daughter, “Greta Grimly” and Peter Breitmayer (The Middle, A Serious Man) will play “Lieutenant Schmidt,” Gus’s superior officer. Tom Musgrave (Beethoven’s 5th) will portray “Bo Munk,” Lester’s boss at the Bo Munk Insurance Shop, and Josh Close (The Master) will play “Ron Nygaard,” Lester’s younger and more successful brother. Russell Harvard (There Will Be Blood) and Adam Goldberg (The Unusuals) will play members of the Fargo Crime Syndicate, “Mr. Wrench” and “Mr. Numbers,” respectively – Mr. Wrench is the muscle. Mr. Numbers is the mouth.

A 10-episode limited series, Fargo is written by Noah Hawley. Emmy Award-winning director Adam Bernstein (30 Rock) will direct the premiere hour. Executive Producers are Hawley, Warren Littlefield, Joel & Ethan Coen, and Geyer Kosinski. Fargo is produced by FX Productions and MGM Television.

The announcement comes on the heels of the recently announced pilot pick-up for Universal Cable Production’s untitled Sean Jablonski project, written and executive produced by Jablonski (SUITS, “Nip Tuck”) and executive produced by Russ Krasnoff (“Community”). USA also just completed a successful first season of the Fox Television Studios drama GRACELAND, one of the summer’s top new scripted series from executive producer Jeff Eastin (WHITE COLLAR), and is currently in production on the period alien drama HORIZON from executive producer Gale Ann Hurd (“Walking Dead”) and writer and co-executive producer Bridget Tyler (BURN NOTICE).

Following are details on the pilots:

COMPLICATIONS (working title) -- After wrapping seven seasons of the popular series BURN NOTICE, Nix brings his next offering to the network with this gritty medical drama. The project centers around John Ellis, a disillusioned suburban ER doctor, who finds his existence transformed when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting, saving a young boy's life and killing one of his attackers. When he learns the boy is still marked for death he finds himself compelled to save him at any cost and discovers that his life and his outlook on medicine may never be the same. COMPLICATIONS is written and executive produced by Nix and is from Fox Television Studios.

NOVICE (working title) -- It’s no secret that today's college graduates face the most difficult job market ever. The drama NOVICE takes the audience on the journey of a young man who finds that his true calling may be a life of crime. After repeatedly trying to break into corporate America, Kyle Jones returns home to his economically struggling family and his high school restaurant job, but minimum wage isn’t going to help with his family’s debt. So, while it is out of necessity that he seizes an unexpected opportunity to make money with a Korean crime family, it appears that this new life may have its perks as well. NOVICE is written by Joe and Tony Gayton, the creators of “Hell on Wheels,” and executive produced by the 21 Laps/Adelstein team of Marty Adelstein, Shawn Levy, and Becky Clements and New Wave Entertainment’s Matt Ochacher. The project is from FOX 21.

RUSH (working title) -- Writer/director Levine (“Warm Bodies,” “The Wackness”) along with Fox 21 and Little Engine’s Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo (“The Gates,” “Popular”) is the team behind the fast paced Hollywood drama, RUSH. Dr. William Rush is not your average on-call doctor -- he’s not attached to any hospital, he’s highly discreet no matter what the ailment as long as the client can pay his cash-only premium and the doctor can party with the best of them. He has no desire to change his life or how he lives it, until an old flame and his conscience begin to stir things up.

JAMES WOODS COMES TO SCIENCE CHANNEL IN FUTURESCAPE

FUTURESCAPE WITH JAMES WOODS REVEALS THE ADVANCES THAT WILL REDEFINE HUMANITY THIS NOVEMBER ON SCIENCE CHANNEL

--World Premiere Series Hosted by Award-Winning Actor James Woods Debuts Tuesday, November 19 at 10 PM ET/PT on Science Channel--

--SILVER SPRING, MD—What if you could read minds using a Bluetooth device, or have your own personal superhuman Iron Man-style suit? How about curing cancer by inserting a “super chip” into the human body? What was once considered science fiction is more of a reality than you may think. A future that once existed solely in the human imagination is beginning to take shape. Science Channel and celebrated actor James Woods take an unprecedented look at the next breakthroughs in science and technology with the world premiere of the new six-part series FUTURESCAPE WITH JAMES WOODS which debuts Tuesday, November 19 at 10 PM ET/PT.

"Science has fueled my imagination since I was in grade school. I had the benefit of an early education centered around the magic of understanding the universe through this magical process of thinking. My involvement in the creation of FUTURESCAPE is the fulfillment of a life long dream." Says James Woods, host and executive producer of FUTURESCAPE.

"James' is smart, charming and brings a provocative edge to FUTURESCAPE. When we learned about his passion for science and his academic background at M.I.T., we had to develop a project around him," said Debbie Adler Myers, General Manager and EVP of Science Channel. We hope that viewers feel this series offers them some of the smartest entertainment on television. With its combination of riveting storytelling, fascinating science and visuals straight out of a science fiction movie; FUTURESCAPE is poised to become the next signature franchise for Science Channel."

FUTURESCAPE is a new, six-part series from Science Channel unveiling the latest in incredible and mind-blowing discoveries. Academy Award Nominee James Woods is your guide as each episode explores a different event horizon that will potentially alter life as we know it. From telepathy, to colonizing space, achieving eternal youth and the integration of robots in our world, no topic is taboo and is given a deeper exploration through this series.

FUTURESCAPE speaks to the pioneering scientists across the country who are uncovering radical breakthroughs that already have fundamentally changed the way we think about the world. The words "life" and "human" already have different meanings after decades of amazing advances. The ideas of deep space travel and telepathy are within our grasp. What were once powers at the hands of the gods -mind reading, creating life from scratch, travelling through space and time, and being immortal-have now fallen into the hands of man.

The technologies being developed in labs and universities have already planted the seeds of radical change to the human condition, but will we have the foresight to use those powers wisely? Or will we be the victims of technological arrogance? The future can be both incredible and incredibly frightening.

FUTURESCAPE WITH JAMES WOODS was produced and created by Science Channel and Karga 7 Productions. James Woods is the Host and Executive Producer of FUTURESCAPE. For Karga 7 Productions Executive Producers include Kelly McPherson, Sarah Wetherbee and Emre Sahin. The Co-Executive Producer is Chris Bray. Neil Laird and Bernadette McDaid are Executive Producers for SCIENCE supported by Katie Pyne as Associate Producer. McDaid is Vice President of Production for SCIENCE, and Deborah Alder Myers is General Manager and Executive Vice President for SCIENCE.

Episode Descriptions

ROBOT REVOLUTION

November 19, 2013 at 10PM ET/PT

Cutting-edge experiments have transformed machines into creatures with consciousness, while elsewhere, scientists are enhancing the human body with synthetic parts that work better than the real thing. The result: a not-too-distant world where man and machine are not only equal, but indistinguishable.

I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING

Premieres November 26, 2013 at 10PM ET/PT

Imagine a world where your most intimate memory is public domain. By mapping neural pathways and decoding how thoughts are processed, scientists are reading minds with telepathy helmets and scanning hidden memories in ways that may put an end to privacy forever.

CHEATING TIME

Premieres December 3, 2013 at 10PM ET/PT

Throughout history, the most powerful men in the world have built empires and held the lives of millions of people in their hands…but the one thing they couldn’t conquer was aging and death. When that changes, the consequences are hard to imagine. Advances in medical technology are now moving us towards a world where old age is little more than a manageable chronic condition and getting sick is a thing of the past.

REPLACING GOD

Premieres December 10, 2013 at 10PM ET/PT

Could God’s long reign finally be in jeopardy? Mind-blowing advances are affording humans a power once reserved for only the Almighty-the ability to create life from scratch. But as we manipulate the building blocks of DNA to create a new species according to our whim, will we find God’s shoes too big to fill?

GALACTIC PIONEERS

Premiers December 17, 2013 at 10PM ET/PT

21st Century explorers have set sail on a new age of discovery that eclipses anything dreamed of by Christopher Columbus. Their “new worlds” are really just that-new worlds.

HOW TO BE A SUPERHUMAN

Premieres December 24, 2013 at 10PM ET/PT

Science stands at the brink of unlocking our primal instincts. Advancements in genetic engineering and neuroscience may soon free humans from the physical limitations that have linked us to the rest of the animal world. Pain, fear, uncertainty and frailty may be things of the past-but is a world without fear something to embrace or be afraid of?

FUTURESCAPE MARATHON TUESDAY DECEMBER 24th starting at 5pm-11pmET

I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING (Special Episode Included in Marathon)

Imagine a world where your most intimate memory is public domain. By mapping neural pathways and decoding how thoughts are processed, scientists are reading minds with telepathy helmets and scanning hidden memories in ways that may put an end to privacy forever.

redditgifts & truTV team up to set world record for largest gift exchange ever with Secret Santa 2013

truTV's Guinness World Records® Unleashed to Serve as Promotional Tie-In
reddit is teaming up with truTV to set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title by making redditgifts' Secret Santa 2013 the largest gift exchange ever. truTV's hit series Guinness World Records® Unleashed will tie into Secret Santa 2013 with extensive cross-promotion of the gift exchange and the series across reddit and truTV properties.
redditgifts was founded in 2009 as an online Secret Santa program for redditors. The program's 2011 holiday exchange set a world record for the largest gift exchange ever, drawing 30,240 participants worldwide. Last year, reddit broke that record with a whopping 44,805 participants from 130 countries.
Reddit is looking to surpass last year's gift-exchange participation rate by a wide margin, with a goal of 65,000 participants for Secret Santa 2013. If the campaign for a new record is successful, everyone who participates in Secret Santa 2013 will be emailed information on how to obtain an official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS certificate.
"We're excited to be collaborating with truTV to raise awareness of this year's Secret Santa and make 2013 the biggest year for gift exchanges yet," said redditgifts founder Dan McComas. "We think it's a natural pairing for people who are fans of Guinness World Records Unleashed to want to earn their own place in history, and we hope that redditors and those who are new to reddit alike join in the fun and share the holiday spirit around the world."
"redditgifts' Secret Santa 2013 campaign is a great opportunity for truTV to link Guinness World Records Unleashed with a global holiday event," said Chris Linn, president, head of programming for truTV. "We're thrilled to be involved with this special attempt to set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title."
How the redditgifts Secret Santa 2013 Gift Exchange Works
Anyone wishing to participate in redditgifts' Secret Santa 2013 can sign up at http://redditgifts.com/secretsanta. Each user is asked to fill out a profile that includes likes, dislikes and any other information that might be helpful to his/her Secret Santa. Users must have or create a redditgifts account in order to participate.
Each registered user is matched with a gift recipient and a secret gift giver. Secret Santas are encouraged to check the profile information for their gift recipient in order to choose the perfect gift. Reddit recommends each Secret Santa spend around $20 for a gift, which must be shipped by Dec. 20.
Once a participant receives his/her gift, reddit invites them to take a picture and post it to the redditgifts gallery in order to share in the global merriment.
Additional information about redditgifts' Secret Santa 2013 program is available at http://redditgifts.com/faq.

Goldberg also executive produces the documentary, along with Tom Leonardis and legendary producer and director George Schlatter, creator of “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In.”

Born Loretta Mary Aiken in Brevard, NC on March 19, 1894, Jackie “Moms” Mabley was one of the most successful entertainers to perform on the black vaudeville stage, also known as the “chitlin’ circuit.” Mabley’s monologues touched on traditional topics such as family, as well as more controversial subjects that were typically avoided by comedians of the era, regardless of race, including infidelity, poverty, welfare and alcohol.

Mabley’s successful career spanned five decades (though white audiences generally did not learn of her until the early 1960s). In 1939, she became the first female comedian to play the Apollo Theater in Harlem, where she earned $10,000 a week at the peak of her career. Mabley performed at Carnegie Hall in 1962, and appeared on such mainstream TV programs as "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" (1967), “The Ed Sullivan Show” (1969) and “The Bill Cosby Show” (1970).

Jackie “Moms” Mabley passed away from heart failure at age 81 on May 23, 1975 in White Plains, NY. She was survived by her children, Bonnie, Christine, Charles and Yvonne Ailey.

Cold Justice


TNT Orders Second Season of Hit Real-Life Drama Cold Justice
Docu-Drama from Executive Producer Dick Wolf and Magical Elves

Ranks as One of Basic Cable's Top 5 New Unscripted Series of the Quarter
Cold JusticeTNT has booked a second season of its gripping, real-life crime series Cold Justice. The network has ordered 10 new episodes of the powerful docu-drama, which is produced for the network by Wolf Films and Magical Elves. Emmy® winners Dick Wolf (Law & Order, Chicago Fire), Dan Cutforth & Jane Lipsitz (Top Chef, Fashion Star) and Tom Thayer (Hitchcock, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee) serve as executive producers. Cold Justice has averaged 2.5 million viewers in Live + 3/Live + 7 blended delivery for its first season. The show ranks as one of basic cable's Top 5 new unscripted series of Q3 2013.
Cold Justice, which airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) on TNT, centers on former prosecutor Kelly Siegler and former crime-scene investigator Yolanda McClary, two women who have spent their lives putting killers behind bars. This real-life procedural drama follows them as they set out to solve small-town murder cases that have lingered for years without answers or closure.
"We're very proud to be renewing Cold Justice, which has already delivered real-world results for several of the cases featured on the show," said Eilenberg. "Viewers have come to see Kelly and Yolanda as a real-life counterpart to such crime-drama duos as Cagney & Lacey and even our own Rizzoli & Isles."
Among the cases that have seen movement as a result of Kelly and Yolanda's work is a Cuero, Texas, murder case from the show's Sept. 3 series premiere. The case resulted in a guilty plea. The Morehouse Parrish, La., murder case from the Sept. 10 episode has resulted in three indictments for murder. And the Matagorda County district attorney in the Palacios, Texas, case featured on Sept. 17 is preparing to present evidence to a grand jury in hopes of obtaining an indictment.
The first season of Cold Justice is slated to end Tuesday, Oct. 22, with the second season planned for early 2014.

TCM
Oct. 8, 2013
Turner Classic Movies to Commemorate 50th Anniversary of JFK Assassination
Nov. 21 Lineup Includes Four Documentaries by Groundbreaking Filmmaker Robert Drew,

Plus Presentations of Four Days in November (1964) and PT 109 (19634)
Four Days in NovemberTurner Classic Movies (TCM) will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Nov. 20th assassination of President John F. Kennedy with a primetime lineup on Thursday Nov. 21 featuring five powerful documentaries about Kennedy's election, presidency and tragic death. Also included is a popular drama about Kennedy's service during World War II.
TCM's commemoration of the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination will open with four works by documentary filmmaker Robert Drew, considered a pioneer of the cinéma verité. Drew's use of new light-weight cameras traditional allowed him to capture reality as never before, leading to a filmmaking movement known as "direct cinema." He utilized the new cameras for the first time while chronicling the election of John F. Kennedy in Primary (1960), airing at 8 p.m. (ET), which focuses on the 1960 Wisconsin Democratic Primary contest between Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey.
Primary will be followed by the TCM premiere of Drew's second Kennedy film, Adventures on the New Frontier (1961), an installment of the series ABC Close-Up! looking at the first days of the newly elected President. Next up at 10:30 p.m. (ET) is Crisis: Behind a Presidential Commitment (1963), which details the Kennedy administration's showdown with Alabama Governor George Wallace over racial integration. And at 11:45 p.m. (ET), Drew's final film on Kennedy, Faces of November (1964), focuses on the assassination of JFK as seen through the faces of mourners at his funeral.

Kim Raver and William Devane will reunite with award-winning star Kiefer Sutherland when they reprise their respective daughter-father roles as AUDREY RAINES and JAMES HELLER on the thrilling new event series 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY, premiering Spring 2014 on FOX.
Both joined the original “24” in Season Four (2005). Devane served as Secretary of Defense JAMES HELLER and the father to Raver’s character, AUDREY RAINES, a committed and passionate woman with a tragic past, who fell in love with JACK BAUER (Sutherland). They were both last seen in the final scenes of Season Six, when Jack said goodbye to a catatonic Audrey.
Raver and Devane’s reprisals add to the previously announced return of Mary Lynn Rajskub as CHLOE O’BRIAN, Bauer’s quirky CTU confidante. Raver, known for her roles on “Third Watch,” “The Nine” and “Lipstick Jungle,” was most recently featured on the network series “Revolution” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” Devane, best known for his villainous role on “Knots Landing,” recently played the U.S. President in the feature film “The Dark Knight Rises.”
Restarting the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will be set in London and will follow the further exploits of Bauer, taking up his story several years after the events of “24’s” final season. Once again, viewers will join the heroic agent on a pulse-pounding ride in real time.
24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is a production of Teakwood Lane Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television. Howard Gordon, Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury, Robert Cochran, Brian Grazer, Jon Cassar and Kiefer Sutherland will executive-produce.

NEW SIBLING COMEDY “ENLISTED” TO PREMIERE

FRIDAY, JANUARY 10, ON FOX
BONES Followed by One Hour of RAISING HOPE to Air Fridays Beginning November 8
In order to take advantage of our winter sports promotional platform, new comedy ENLISTED, starring Geoff Stults (“The Finder”), Chris Lowell (“Veronica Mars”) and Parker Young (“Suburgatory”), will premiere on Friday, Jan. 10 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT), following all-new episodes of BONES (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and RAISING HOPE (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
As previously announced, BONES will make its time period premiere when the drama series moves from Mondays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) to Fridays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on Nov. 8. This fall, all-new episodes of BONES will be followed by one hour of all-new, back-to-back installments of RAISING HOPE (9:00-9:30 PM and 9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT), which makes its Season Four premiere on Nov. 8.
ENLISTED is a new military-set family comedy that centers on three brothers who, when the best of the best are sent overseas, stay behind to try to keep the post in order. Staff Sergeant PETE HILL (Stults) was on a path for a huge military career until one mistake overseas got him booted stateside to Fort McGee, the post in Florida where his two younger brothers are stationed. Now, as their platoon sergeant, Pete must serve both as big brother and military boss. Corporal DERRICK HILL (Lowell) is the middle brother – smart and sarcastic, he likes to stir up trouble and doesn’t really care about being a soldier. Private RANDY HILL (Young), on the other hand, loves it. Between clean-up duty at a parade, human-grease-bowling and assorted soldierly pranks, they will inadvertently discover the key to strengthening their long-lost childhood bonds.
Fort McGee Rear D is run by Command Sergeant Major DONALD CODY (Emmy Award winner Keith David, “Cloud Atlas,” “The Cape”), a firm but fair man who served with the brothers’ late father. Sergeant Major Cody promised to look out for them, so he brought all the brothers to the post to fulfill that promise. Also under Cody’s command is the confident, funny, tough and beautiful Staff Sergeant JILL PEREZ (Angelique Cabral, “Friends with Benefits”), who is the same rank as Pete and leads another Rear D platoon on post, all the while challenging Pete’s decisions at every turn.


FOX GIVES PILOT ORDER TO NEW CRIME DRAMA “THE MIDDLE MAN,”

FROM PEARL STREET FILMS, BEN AFFLECK AND GLENN GORDON CARON
Affleck is Attached to Direct and Executive-Produce Pilot;

Caron to Write and Executive-Produce;

Pearl Street’s Chay Carter also to Executive-Produce
Based on a Story Developed by Caron and

Screenwriters Michael Yebba and Emilio Mauro
Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) has given a pilot production commitment to THE MIDDLE MAN, a new drama produced by FOX and Pearl Street Films, and executive-produced by Academy Award winner Ben Affleck (“Argo,” “The Town”) and Emmy Award nominee Glenn Gordon Caron (“Medium,” “Moonlighting”), who wrote the pilot script. Affleck (“Argo,” “The Town,” “Gone Baby Gone”) is attached to direct the pilot. Pearl Street Films’ Chay Carter (“Argo,” “The Town,” “Gone Baby Gone”) will also serve as an executive producer on the project. Production is scheduled to begin in early 2014.
Set in 1960s Boston, THE MIDDLE MAN explores the unique relationship between RUDY MacATEER, an FBI agent charged with taking down the Italian-American mafia, and his confidential informant, Irish-American gangster MICKEY FLOOD. As Rudy finds himself forced to bend the laws he pledged to enforce, the duo’s actions inadvertently give rise to the Irish-American mob in this timeless Boston crime saga.
The project dates back to 2009, when Carter and Affleck met actor and screenwriter Michael Yebba (“Ordinary Man”) and screenwriter Emilio Mauro (“God Only Knows”) during production of “The Town.” The current script is based on a story developed by Caron, Yebba and Mauro.
Ben Affleck is a two-time Academy Award winner who has been recognized for his work as a director, actor, writer and producer. Affleck most recently directed, produced and starred in the Academy Award-winning film for Best Motion Picture, “Argo,” a fact-based drama about the then-classified mission to rescue six Americans trapped in Iran during the hostage crisis. Affleck made his directorial debut in 2007 with the feature “Gone Baby Gone,” for which he also co-wrote the screenplay. In 2010, Affleck directed, co-wrote and starred in “The Town.” The film was named among the top 10 films of the year by the AFI, and the cast won the National Board of Review Award for Best Ensemble. Affleck’s upcoming projects include starring in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl,” as well as Zachary Snyder’s “Batman vs. Superman.” He also will star in and direct “Live by Night,” based on the Dennis Lehane novel, and is developing a biopic about notorious mobster Whitey Bulger, in which he and Matt Damon will star. Affleck first came to prominence in 1997 with the acclaimed drama “Good Will Hunting,” which he starred in and co-wrote with Damon. The two won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, as well as a Golden Globe Award and Humanitas Prize.
Glenn Gordon Caron created the groundbreaking television series “Moonlighting,” which garnered 42 Emmy Award nominations, nine Golden Globe Award nominations, six Writers Guild of America (WGA) Award nominations and four Directors Guild of America Award nominations. Caron received the WGA Award for writing the series. In 1988, Caron made his feature directorial debut with “Clean and Sober.” He also helmed the features “Wilder Napalm,” a remake of “Love Affair” and the hit romantic comedy “Picture Perfect,” which he also co-wrote. He returned to television with the offbeat “Now and Again,” a genre-bending science-fiction drama/comedy/romance. In 2005, Caron returned to television one more time with “Medium,” for which he wrote and directed the pilot episode. The series ran seven seasons on two different networks.
Among Pearl Street’s upcoming projects is “Live By Night,” Affleck’s next feature directing vehicle. Other projects include the historical adventure “Race to the South Pole,” about the 1911 competition between explorers Roald Amundsen and Robert Falcon Scott to be the first to reach the forbidding southern tip of the globe, in which Casey Affleck will star as Scott; and “Whitey,” a biopic about infamous Boston mobster Whitey Bulger, to star Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Casey Affleck.
THE MIDDLE MAN is produced by FOX and Pearl Street Films. The pilot is written by Glenn Gordon Caron. Ben Affleck, Caron and Chay Carter will serve as executive producers. Michael Yebba and Emilio Mauro are co-executive produc
