Jessica Goldberg is switching gears from Meyerism to a medical drama. “The Path” creator has a new series in development at NBC, “Relief.” The project sees her teaming up with “NCIS” star Maria Bello, who conceived the idea with her. Variety broke the news.
The potential series centers on a “successful female doctor in L.A. who delivers supplies to her estranged brother on a remote island devastated by an earthquake,” the souce writes. “ A series of dramatic events propel her decision to stay on and become part of a group of volunteers from around the world who are saving lives and healing themselves in the process.”
Goldberg will pen the teleplay. Both she and Bello are among “Relief’s” executive producers.
Other series in development about female doctors include CBS’ “Love/Sick,” a comedy based on the South Korean series “Emergency Couple,” and an untitled NBC
Et's Kevin Frazier spoke with Mark Harmon at his TV Guide cover party in Studio City, California, on Monday, where he opened up about how the show will say goodbye to one of its own when Perrette leaves after season 15.
According to the 66-year-old actor, the fans have also earned a sweet departure for Perrette's Abby Sciuto. The actress revealed last month that this season would be her last.

"Oh, we'll miss her. I'm really aware, and we're all aware that audiences grow to love characters, and it's a big deal. And we honor that," Harmon said. "Fifteen years is a long time. People do what they do, and they move on and they do other things and that's part of life."

The companies said the partnership, announced Tuesday, marks MGM’s return to domestic distribution and a continued expansion of Annapurna, which launched a marketing and distribution operation earlier this year. The announcement was made by Gary Barber, MGM’s chairman and chief executive officer, and Megan Ellison, founder and CEO of Annapurna.
Annapurna and MGM will share funding for the joint venture’s operations while each studio will retain creative control over their individual projects. The marketing and distribution team established at Annapurna will help in the campaigns for all MGM titles, which will be distributed under the MGM banner. Annapurna’s produced films will continue to be distributed under Annapurna’s already established label.
Through this joint venture, MGM expects to release approximately six to eight films per year beginning with Eli Roth’s re-imagining of the revenge thriller
In this episode of NCIS, titled "Fake It 'Til You Make It," Reeves witnesses his friend's kidnapping, and McGee deals with his awkward teenage years.
On Tuesday’s episode, titled “Fake It ‘Til You Make It,” NCIS pulls the curtains back on the personal life of MI6 Officer Clayton Reeves. When a close friend, Melissa Goodman (guest star Samaire Armstrong), gets abducted, he’s forced to declassify to his comrades their connection -- that they met through Alcoholics Anonymous -- in order to help save her. But, as the team gets deeper into the mystery, they soon discover that there may be more to the story than meets the eye: Their prime suspect has his hands on top-secret military intel.
Considering Reeves has been a key member on CBS’ long-running procedural for two seasons now, sometimes good things do come to those who wait. “It was a breath of fresh air,” English actor Duane Henry tells Et of getting the chance to unpack his character. “He’s always been a little bit vulnerable, but this sort of
Just don’t tell series regular Duane Henry that he has been keeping a “low profile.”
“It’s not so much that, but…. I’m more what you call a ‘secret weapon,'” the affable English actor corrects with a wink and a laugh. “Pull me out when need be, because you don’t want to overwhelm people with my presence.”

Another week, another Stephen King adaptation. Following on from The Dark Tower, It and the effectively nasty sex-game-gone-wrong thriller Gerald’s Game, Netflix is quietly launching a brooding take on one of his lesser-known works. The collection Full Dark, No Stars has already spawned two middling movies – Big Driver with Maria Bello and A Good Marriage with Joan Allen – and now, a third novella is hitting the screen with far more distinction.
