Riverdale, F is for Family, and Bewitched!

It will be another multiple post dayI really should start posting more than once a week! 

-Courtney Love will be joining the cast of Fox’s midseason drama Empire in a recurring guest star role. She will play Elle Dallas, “a hard rock powerhouse, who is part of Empire Entertainment’s stable of artists.” http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/10/23/courtney-love-drama/

-James Corden will take over The Late Late Show on CBS on March 9, 2015 but apparently a rotating roster of guest hosts will take over the show until then. Craig Ferguson will leave the show in December. No word on who the guests will be yet. http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/10/23/late-late-show-james-corden-march-2015/

-Greg Berlanti (executive producer of ArrowThe Flash) is bringing the beloved Archie comics to the small screen. Riverdale, a drama based on the characters from the Archie comics has landed at Fox with a script deal plus penalty. http://deadline.com/2014/10/archie-comics-series-riverdale-greg-berlanti-roberto-aguirre-sacasa-fox-858971/

-Cody Simpson (Australian pop star, teen idol) is joining the cast of Cougar Town for its sixth and final season airing in early 2015, for one episode. In the episode, Simpson will play Pete, a high school student who bears a very strong resemblance to Grayson (Josh Hopkins) in both looks and behavior. http://www.eonline.com/news/590726/find-out-which-pop-star-is-heading-to-cougar-town-for-its-final-season

-Netflix has greenlighted F is For Family, a six-episode animated series based on the comedy of Bill Burr. The family comedy will debut in 2015. The show follows the Murphy family in the 1970s–“a time when you could smack your kid, smoke inside, and bring a gun to the airport.” Burr will voice Frank Murphy, the family’s extreme patriarch; Laura Dern will voice Frank’s wife, Sue, and Justin Long will voice the family’s oldest son, Kevin. http://deadline.com/2014/10/bill-burr-animated-series-vince-vaughn-netflix-857571/

Gotham has cast Morena Baccarin as Dr. Leslie Tompkins, “a gifted and dedicated physician who was a friend of Thomas and Martha Wayne. She is determined to use her skills to aid Gotham’s most in need, which currently means working at the newly opened Arkham Asylum’s House for the Criminally Insane.” The character is from the original comics. She is expected to be a recurring role this season and a series regular in a presumed season 2. http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/10/22/gotham-morena-baccarin/

-ABC is creating a Shark Tank spinoff, Beyond the Tank, which will follow what happens after the start-ups are launched. The network has picked up 10 hourlong episodes. No premiere date has been determined. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/abc-orders-shark-tank-spinoff-732409

-Showtime has found a replacement for Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Happyish, Steve Coogan will now play Thom Payne. It will now go back to the pilot stage and production will begin in New York. No word on if anyone from the original cast (Rhys Ifans, Kathryn Hahn) will return. The show is a dark examination of the pursuit of happiness. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/steve-coogan-replace-philip-seymour-676767

-Amanda Righetti (The Mentalist) has been cast opposite Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies in Colony, USA Network’s family drama/thriller pilot about life in Los Angeles after a mysterious “foreign” occupation. Righetti will play Madeline, younger sister of Katie (Callies) and the mother of a diabetic child in need of insulin. http://deadline.com/2014/10/amanda-righetti-cast-carlton-cuse-colony-pilot-usa-857759/

Bates Motel has cast Kevin Rahm (Mad Men) for a recurring role during season 3. He will play Bob Paris, the wealthy, self-involved and gregarious owner of an elite hunting club who grew up with Sheriff Alex Romero (Nestor Carbonell). The pair now have a strained relationship, but they keep their mutual dislike under wraps. Bates Motel returns March 2015. http://tvline.com/2014/10/22/bates-motel-kevin-rahm-season-3/

-The Bewitched follow up series has landed at NBC with a pilot production commitment. The new version is a reimagining of the original series two generation later. It centers on Daphne–Samantha’s granddaughter and Tabitha’s daughter– a single twenty-something witch who has always used her magical powers to conjure herself the perfect life. But she soon realizes that the one thing she cannot conjure and control is the one thing she wants most– real love. http://deadline.com/2014/10/bewitched-series-nbc-857873/

House of Cards, 12 Monkeys, and Men in Shorts

There is so much news! I probably should have done another post earlier in the week but I was so swamped with midterms (since I’m still in college) that I just didn’t have time. This honestly may have to be 3 posts. This is post 2/3.

-Sam Neill (Merlin, Peaky Blinders) has joined the cast of CBS’ The Dovekeepers, a four hour miniseries, based on the Alice Hoffman’s historical novel about extraordinary women whose lives intersect in a fight for survival at the siege of Masada. He will play Josephus, the somewhat controversial first-century Jewish scholar and historian. The Dovekeepers should premiere on CBS in 2015. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/sam-neill-star-cbs-dovekeepers-740346

-Victor Garber (Alias) has booked a guest-starring gig on CBS’ Blue Bloods. He will appear in the November 21 episode, as Donald Stein, a charismatic scion of a New York real estate dynasty who is also a highly respected Jewish leader. He is deeply disturbed by the recent murders of several prominent Jewish men in the city. Blue Bloods airs Fridays at 10/9c on CBS. http://tvline.com/2014/10/16/blue-bloods-season-5-casts-victor-garber/

-Netflix also stated that Lilyhammer will return for an eight-episode third season on November 21. http://deadline.com/2014/10/lilyhammer-season-3-premiere-november-netflix-852925/

-Hunter Parrish (Weeds) is appearing on Fox’s The Following in the upcoming third season, premiering in early 2015, as Kyle, one half of a “murderous” couple. Kyle and his girlfriend Daisy, played by Ruth Kearney (Tyrant) aren’t afraid to “go to extreme lengths to keep the spark alive in their relationship.” http://tvline.com/2014/10/14/the-following-season-3-spoilers-hunter-parrish-character-details/

-HBO has given a pilot order to Codes of Conduct, a provocative exploration of a young African-American man’s experience entering New York high society, with a past that may not be what it seems. Devon Terrell, who is new to the business, will star as Beverly Snow, a young man from Queens who is as talented as he is ambiguous. Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave) co-wrote the pilot script alongside Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z). http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/steve-mcqueen-drama-lands-hbo-740712

-Chris Rock is set to host Saturday Night Live with musical guest Prince for the November 1 episode. Jim Carrey will host the November 25 episode with musical guest Iggy Azalea. http://www.thewrap.com/chris-rock-to-host-saturday-night-live-with-musical-guest-prince/

-ABC has closed a deal for Men In Shorts, a single-camera comedy inspired by the life of professional soccer player Robbie Rogers, who became the first openly gay man to compete in a top North American professional sports league. http://deadline.com/2014/10/robbie-rogers-comedy-series-gay-soccer-player-abc-843005/

-The CW is developing The Illusionist as a TV adapation. The 2006 film featuring Ed Norton, Paul Giamatti, and Jessica Biel is based on the short story “Eisenheim the Illusionist” by Steven Millhauser.

-Syfy has taken on the graphic novel Dark Matter for a 13-episode drama to debut in 2015. The graphic novel centers on the crew of a derelict spaceship that is awakened from stasis with no memories of who they are or how they go on board. Facing threats at every turn, they have to work together to survive a voyage charged with vengeance, betrayal and hidden secrets. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/syfy-stargate-producers-take-graphic-740985

-ABC has ordered full season orders for How to Get Away With Murder and Black-ish. The episodes have been increased to 15 and 22, respectively. http://deadline.com/2014/10/how-to-get-away-with-murder-blackish-full-season-1-orders-abc-848758/

Thanks for checking out my blog! Look for a third (and final) post coming shortly! 



CBS Subscription Service, Mission Control, and The Voice

There is so much news! I probably should have done another post earlier in the week but I was so swamped with midterms (since I’m still in college) that I just didn’t have time. This honestly may have to be 3 posts. Let’s get started! 

-CBS is launching its own subscription service for on-demand consumption for its new TV shows as well as their old ones. Since they are not part of Hulu (jointly owned by ABC, NBC, and Fox) they have been out of the subscription service for awhile and have only focused on their website (which I might add, is not very good compared to Hulu). “CBS All Access” will offer thousands of episodes from many of CBS’ current programs, classic series in its library as well as content from its local-TV station, for $5.99 a month. With the service, anyone who wants to watch CBS shows will be able to do so whether or not they subscribe to a programming package from a video distributor (aka a standalone service). http://variety.com/2014/digital/news/cbs-to-launch-svod-all-access-service-with-current-and-classic-programs-1201331028/

-Billy Eichner (Billy on the Street, Parks and Recreation) is coming to New Girl for the holidays! He will guest-star as a Grinch-like character in the Christmas episode. His character, Barry, a beleaguered airline representative the gang encounter at the airport is tired of dealing with holiday travelers and Christmas itself. Catch the episode on Tuesday, December 9 at 9/8c on Fox. http://tvline.com/2014/10/16/billy-eichner-new-girl-season-4-christmas-episode/

-NBC has canceled Mission Control before it has even aired. The show was set for a midseason debut and it starred Kristen Ritter. The main issue apparently was casting issues, which underwent recasting days after it was picked up to series. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/nbc-cancels-comedy-mission-control-741026

-Archie Panjabi (who plays Kalinda Sharma) will be leaving The Good Wife at the end of this season, after her contract has ended. She did not renew her contract because she is planning on starring in a drama pilot for CBS in the spring. No word on how she will depart, but this does not mean the end for The Good Wife, which airs Sundays at 9/8c on CBS. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/good-wifes-archie-panjabi-exit-740993

-A Bewitched remake is eyeing a comeback. There is already interest from multiple networks about a remake. The show is being written by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, who both worked on The Vow. I’ll keep you up to date on any new information that comes out about this. http://deadline.com/2014/10/bewitched-remake-series-sony-851716/

Bones has enlisted Mindy Cohn (The Facts of Life) to play Valentina, a New Age-focused doula that will “inject some lightness and levity into single-mom Daisy’s delivery.” She will appear in an early-December episode entitled “The Puzzler In the Pit.” Bones airs Thursdays at 8/7c on Fox. http://tvline.com/2014/10/15/bones-daisy-birth-baby-sweets-season-10-the-puzzler-in-the-pit/

Unforgettable has been canceled by CBS after three seasons. http://deadline.com/2014/10/unforgettable-cancelled-cbs-849580/

-Wilson Bethel (Hart of Dixie) has joined ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club as a series regular. He will play Scott Carpenter, Rene’s (Yvonne Strahovski) laid-back husband. http://tvline.com/2014/10/13/wilson-bethel-astronaut-wives-club-cast-season-1/

-Fox’s Gotham gets a full-season order, which means they have ordered an additional six episodes bring the total number for the first season to 22. New episodes of Gotham air Mondays at 8/7c on Fox. http://tvline.com/2014/10/13/gotham-full-season-order-fox/

American Horror Story has been renewed for season 5 after the fourth season’s premiere broke FX records, with 10 million total views for the season four opener, the most-watched telecast in the network’s history. Season 5 will be 13 episodes and premiere in October 2015 with season 4 running through January 2015. http://www.eonline.com/news/587871/american-horror-story-renewed-for-season-5-after-freak-show-shatters-ratings-record

-Pharrell Williams is set to return for season 8 of The Voice as a coach. He will coach alongside Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Christina Aguilera, who is coming back from a maternity leave after sitting out the last two season. The eighth season will air in early 2015 on NBC. http://deadline.com/2014/10/pharrell-williams-the-voice-coach-season-8-850965/

-WGN America has renewed Manhattan for a second season ahead of its first season finale. The season finale airs Sunday, October 19 at 10 pm ET on WGN America. http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/10/14/wgn-america-renews-manhattan-for-season-2/

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has booked Nick Cannon (America’s Got Talent host) for a multi-episode arc. He will play Marcus, Holt’s charming and educated nephew who just moved to the city and will stay with his uncle until he finds his own place. His debut will be sometime in December. Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs Sundays at 8:30pm on Fox. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/brooklyn-nine-nine-books-nick-cannon-740674
