1 | Is there any better testament to Hugh Jackman’s talent than the fact that, early on during his fourth stint as host of the Tonys, we stopped noticing that he was sporting a beard that made him look like Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof? And while watching the Les Miz performance, we couldn’t help but wonder: How has TV not given us a The Thenardiers sitcom yet? »

The Atx Television Festival staged a 15-year anniversary reunion of The WB’s Roswell on Sunday. Stars Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr, Brendan Fehr, Majandra Delfino and Nick Wechsler were reportedly there, along with creator Jason Katims.

15 years after The WB/Upn’s “Roswell” first premiered, the cast and creator reunited at the Atx Television Festival in Austin to regale a packed theater with their memories of filming the cult alien drama. Stars Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr, Brendan Fehr, Majandra Delfino and Nick Wechsler were on hand, along with creator Jason Katims and several hundred fans who eagerly crammed themselves into the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema for a trip back to the eventful New Mexico town.
In a surreal turn, “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi — apparently a diehard fan of the short-lived but much-beloved series — flew in from the East Coast specifically to attend the reunion panel, and even asked a question during the Q&A. (The reality star asked whether the cast believes in aliens — Appleby and Delfino said yes, for the record.)

"Oh I am what I am." Is there still life in Roswell, the WB's beloved cult series that ended in 2002 (with a few stains from the thousands of Tabasco sauce bottles being sent to the network in an effort to save it from cancellation)? According to some of the series' stars, the short answer is no. Creator Jason Katims and cast members Shiri Appleby, Nick Wechsler and Brendan Fehr are set to participate in a reunion panel at the 2014 Atx TV Festival in Austin on Saturday. But before the on-stage reunion, the two stars, who played human Kyle Valenti and alien Michael Guerin respectively, chatted with E! News about why they can't see a Roswell reboot happening, even if reunions »

The people who did watch the show really watched it, though — fans even sent The WB loads of Tabasco sauce (what the show’s aliens liked to snack on) in an attempt to convince the network to keep the show on during its first season. »

It isn’t news to most of us that some cable networks have a target audience, whether or not we agree that their programming actually serves that target. A case in point is Lifetime, which calls itself “female-focused” though my remote hasn’t landed on the channel in years. I’ve heard good things about Witches of East End but honestly haven’t checked it out just because it’s on that Army Wives network.
That may change, now that Lifetime is testing the waters of dystopia with its pickup of the series The Lottery. I can see how it would be considered female-skewed, given that the premise is a lottery to determine who will serve as surrogates for the 100 embryos still in existence, but I’m intrigued that they’re calling it a “conspiracy thriller.” Okay, Lifetime, you have my attention.

Lifetime just placed a series order for "Un-Real," starring "Girls" alum Shiri Appleby as a reality show producer and based on the 2013 short "Sequin Raze." Now the network is continuing to expand its higher-end original programming with new conspiracy thriller "The Lottery," which has been given a 10-episode order. The series is set a dystopian future where women have stopped having children, and a national lottery is held to determine the surrogates for the only 100 successfully fertilized embryos. The government's interests dominate the process, igniting a controversy over personal freedoms. "The Lottery" is written by Timothy J. Sexton, the screenwriter of "Children of Men," which had similar themes about a fertility crisis, as well as "Libertador" and "Cesar Chavez." Danny Cannon ("CSI," "Nikita") directed the pilot with Grady Girl Productions, in association with Warner Horizon Television (Whtv). “'The Lottery' is one of the most provocative and original...
