The second season of CBS’s summer drama “Under the Dome” — based on horror-meister Stephen King’s novel — kicked off production on Monday in Wilmington, N.C. To celebrate the fresh beginning, CBS has released a fanciful little video. The clip features King — who wrote the first episode of the upcoming season — hunched over a typewriter, presumably tapping out lines for the script.

In his latest video blog, which introduces the show's writing staff, Sutter clears up which secondary characters will and will not be back on a regular basis when "Sons" returns.
Though both Cch Pounder and Kim Dickens played major roles in Season 6, both will only be able to come back in a limited capacity due to commitments on other shows they've been cast in. According to Sutter, the chances are that they'll only appear in two to four episodes each.
On the other hand, Jimmy Smits will be back as a regular, much like the recently-promoted Drea de Matteo. Then there's Peter Weller. "Peter will be back definitely as a director for at least two episodes," Sutter says, "and we definitely will have [Barosky] back. »
NCIS really wants to be able to spinoff for a second time, which might be why it’s working so hard to round up a solid cast. NCIS: New Orleans will star Scott Bakula as Special Agent Pride, but there needs to be more to this character for viewers to tune in. For instance: what’s his home life like? Is he married? It turns out he is and his wife has already cast under the presumption New Orleans will be getting a series order – how else could they have gotten Paige Turco to take the part? The actress has many jobs already, so New Orleans’ chances of pick up must be high.
Turco, who has been recurring on Person of Interest for the last couple of years, will be playing Linda Pride. TVLine reported that, should New Orleans, which comes from NCIS boss Gary Glasberg and star Mark Harmon, »

News and notes from up and down your channel guide:
- Max Greenfield -- the man who plays Schmidt on "New Girl" -- will be hopping forward half an hour to guest-star on "The Mindy Project" in an upcoming episode. Greenfield will play Lee, described as a hot guy and a player at a bar. The episode is scheduled to air Tuesday, April 22. [E! Online]
- CBS' summer thriller "Under the Dome" has added two new series regulars. Eddie Cahill ("CSI: New York") is set to play Sam, Big Jim's (Dean Norris) brother-in-law and former Emt, while Karla Crome (above) is making her U.S. TV debut as Rebecca, a beautiful teacher who is "quite forceful" and will cause some heat for Big Jim. [THR]
Teen Wolf has added Dylan Sprayberry to the cast. Sprayberry, best known for playing a young Clark Kent in Man of Steel and a young Cooper Anderson on Glee, will appear in season four as a “perfect” student who isn’t ready for the supernatural craziness of Beacon Hills.
Max Greenfield has been booked to appear on an episode of The Mindy Project. It’s not a New Girl crossover since Greenfield won’t be playing Schmidt. That makes me a little sad since Mindy and Schmidt could make for some amazing relationship drama.
More Max Greenfield is always a good thing.
Allison Janney tells Digital Spy that she’s set to appear in the second season of Masters of Sex as the wife of closeted University Provost Barton Scully. Janney adds that they’re still figuring how many episodes she’ll appear in as they have to work around her Mom schedule. »

John Ducey (Jonas) has been cast in Bad Judge, NBC’s single-camera comedy pilot starring and executive produced by Kate Walsh. The project, from writer Chad Kultgen and producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Anne Heche, centers on a hard-living, sexually unapologetic woman (Walsh) who plays with the law, and whose life on the edge is constantly in balance as she also happens to be a judge in the criminal court system. Ducey, repped by Pakula/King & Assoc., will play Tom, a dapper Da and a shameless brown-noser who wants to be judge and would climb over Rebecca’s (Walsh) dead body to advance his own career.

Sosie Bacon may only be 21, but she has a lot going for her. On top of being 2014's Miss Golden Globe, through her father Kevin Bacon, she is connected to nearly everyone in Hollywood - including every other previous Miss Golden Globe, most of whom are also the daughters (or sons) of industry power players. And while some have a connection through their famous parents, others, such as Laura Dern (who happens to have famous parents), are also connected through their own work. Don't believe us? Here's how you get from young Ms. Bacon to all of her famous predecessors, »
