Upfront week has begun — essentially, it began last week, as the broadcast networks began cancelling lots of shows and ordering new series — with NBC's announcement of its fall schedule, which has echoes of many past NBC schedules: high-concept new dramas airing Mondays after The Voice, a Wednesday lineup of crime shows, yet another Dick Wolf-produced Chicago series, and a new attempt to revive the network's old Thursday comedy brand — albeit without NBC's best comedy, The Carmichael Show, which is still in limbo. (On a conference call with reporters, NBC boss Bob Greenblatt said he's still negotiating with the studio over the number of episodes for a third season.) Update: NBC has since closed a deal to renew the series for a 13-episode third season. The lineup, night-by-night: Monday: The Voice leads into Timeless, from Supernatural creator Eric Kripke and The Shield boss Shawn Ryan, about a trio of time travelers (Abigail Spencer, »

The crux of the episode involves a shooting, in which Roman is seriously injured. Burgess runs after the assailant and shoots him in the back multiple times. But it’s hardly case closed after that. The young man, Michael Ellis, is, by all accounts, an Eagle Scout. Even worse, the police have no eyewitnesses and can’t find the gun »

While we appreciated the poignant turn 69-year-old Sylvester Stallone gave as aged Rocky Balboa in last year’sCreed, let’s turn back the clock 40 years and marvel at his original performance in 1976’s Rocky. Here was an unknown, droopy-eyed actor who refused to sell the script he wrote in three days — and with only $106 to his name, and a pregnant wife at home — unless he could play the muscle-bound boxer.
Producers Irwin Winkler and Robert Chartoff agreed and Stallone didn’t disappoint, giving a magnificent performance as the hard-luck pugilist who wants nothing but the chance to go the distance with reigning heavyweight champ Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) and win the heart of shy pet-store keeper Adrian (Talia Shire).

According to THR, Toussaint will guest-star in the forthcoming backdoor pilot as defense attorney Shambala Green, a role she originated on Law & Order in 1990 and last played in 2003. Chicago Justice‘s trial run (no pun intended) will air this spring, as Episode 21 of Chicago P.D.
After building a TV empire with Law & Order and its numerous spinoffs, Dick Wolf is constructing a similar TV landscape with his NBC shows Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., the new series Chicago Med and another upcoming spinoff, Chicago Justice. Deadline reports that the executive producer announced at PaleyFest today that Carl Weathers has signed on to star in Chicago Justice. The actor joins Philip Winchester, Nazneen Contractor and Joelle Carter in the series.
The spinoff will first be introduced in the 21st episode of Chicago P.D. Season 3, entitled Justice, which doesn't have an exact air date. Carl Weathers is playing State's Attorney Mark Jefferies, described as "a respected, grounded intellectual with admirable gravitas." No details have been given for Philip Winchester, Nazneen Contractor and Joelle Carter's characters quite yet.
Dick Wolf strolled down memory lane Saturday night at PaleyFest at the Dolby Theatre, surrounded by stars of his current Chicago trilogy shows “Chicago P.D.,” “Chicago Med” and “Chicago Fire,” as well as “Law and Order: Svu.” Clad in his usual uniform of all-black and bright orange socks, the actors paid tribute to Wolf as they talked about being part of his television empire.
The Chicago table is getting “a fourth leg” as Wolf described it, with “Chicago Justice.” Wolf announced that Carl Weathers will be part of the “Chicago Justice” cast, playing Illinois State’s attorney Mark Jefferies, and co-star opposite Philip Winchester, Nazneen Contractor and Joelle Carter.
About the assembled panel of talent that included Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Ice-t, Jason Beghe, Taylor Kinney, Jesse Spencer, Sophia Bush and Torrey DeVitto, Wolf said, “the thing all these actors have in common is that they’re all »

It was the “Linstead” sigh heard ’round the Interwebs: Despite much enthusiasm from Chicago P.D. creatives and fans, alike, the show’s planned Lindsay/Halstead road-trip hour stalled out of the gate. And now we’re learning why.
Originally slated to air as this season’s 15th episode, the change-of-pace installment was set to sequester the couple in a car as they journey to Green Bay, Wis., for a case. In addition to featuring some serious one-on-one time between the detectives, the outing was also supposed to shed light »
What’s good for Casey’s political career on Chicago Fire is very bad for his romance with Dawson.
The firefighter’s “new job that he’s taken on [in running for alderman] is really going to affect his relationship,” star Jesse Spencer told TVLine on Saturday, prior to PaleyFest’s salute to Dick Wolf.
Trouble begins to arise for the pair when Lauren Stamile (Grey’s Anatomy, Burn Notice) enters the picture as a political consultant who sparks “a connection” with Casey, Spencer previews. “They’re denying it. It’s not fully conscious, »
Weathers will play State’s Attorney Mark Jefferies in the upcoming “Justice” episode of “Chicago P.D.” The episode is designed to be prototype for a fourth “Chicago” series, this time focusing on the legal system.

Philip Winchester, Nazneen Contractor and Joelle Clark are set for lead roles in “Justice.” The episode is set to air May 11, five days before NBC unveils its 2016-17 program lineup to advertisers at its upfront in New York.

Last week, 20th Century Fox issued a slew of new release dates for upcoming projects, including their highly-anticipated Predator sequel, which will hit theaters March 2, 2018. Writer-director Shane Black has previously revealed that the script is finished, which he co-wrote with Fred Dekker, and that it will be a sequel, not a reboot as previously rumored. While no cast members are officially attached yet, original Predator star Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed in an interview with The Arnold Fans that he's planning on meeting with Shane Black soon to discuss the project.
"I haven't talked with him (Shane Black) yet but I'm going to meet with him for lunch sometime soon. Just as soon as I'm finished with this (Arnold's Sports Festival) and The Apprentice and all this stuff. But I will get together with him.

There's a new Predator movie on the way! We look at what we know, the rumours, speculation - and what we'd like to see...
There was a time when Boris Karloff’s Monster was a creature to be feared as well as pitied. Now Frankenstein’s monster masks are readily available in joke shops. The shark in Jaws made a legion cinema-goers afraid of dipping a toe in the ocean, but its ferocious mystique gradually ebbed away through a trio of increasingly tawdry sequels.
This is the problem with movie monsters of all kinds; whether they’re from the depths of space (Alien) or flesh-eating psychologists from just down the road (Hannibal Lecter in Manhunter, Silence And The Lambs and so on), they have a tendency to lose their mystique over time. Such is the case with the Predator, the towering and indescribably cool alien big-game hunter »
