Now that his career as a killer cop has come to an end on The Killing, Elias Koteas is looking for work to fill up his spare time. Thankfully, the actor didn’t have to search all that long or hard. He’s trading in his killer cop persona and adopting something more like a cop with a secret. It might be he’s another killer, but considering the long-style format of storytelling that broadcast networks are accustomed to, I’d say Koteas won’t be going around killing more innocent people. Instead, he’ll join the ranks of Chicago Pd, the spinoff of NBC’s Chicago Fire.
It isn’t too often a series is given a spinoff during its first season, but Chicago Fire, which came from Dick Wolf (the Law & Order franchise), somehow managed to convince the higher ups that it was a safe investment. The lives »

One Tree Hill alumna Sophia Bush and Patrick Flueger (The 4400) have joined Chicago Fire‘s upcoming spinoff series Chicago Pd as series regulars. On the NBC midseason drama, about the workings of the Chicago police department’s investigative team, Bush will play Erin Lindsay, a member of the team with an unexpected past. Flueger will play Kyle Ruzek, a hotheaded rookie plucked by Voight (Jason Beghe) from the Academy for dangerous, delicate undercover work for the Intelligence unit.

You would think that one of the more sensational murder trials of recent years would yield an equally salacious TV movie. In the case of "Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret," you would be wrong.
In its rush to get the movie on the air -- "Dirty Little Secret" was filming while Arias was still standing trial for the 2008 murder of Travis Alexander -- Lifetime chose to tell a by-the-numbers tale of passion gone wrong rather than the potentially compelling (if lurid) courtroom story that played out on news channels for weeks earlier this year.
Honestly, I thought I'd be doing a "X most outrageous things in the Jodi Arias movie" sort of post here, but "Dirty Little Secret" is no "Drew Peterson: Untouchable" in terms of camp factor. Instead, it's just a riff on "Fatal Attraction" with a less menacing murderess.
There was once a time that weeks or months or even years would pass between an incident and the movie made about it. But in a modern TV world of instant gratification, apparently now a story can be put on film before its climax has even happened in real life.
On May 8, a jury in Maricopa County, Ariz., returned a verdict of guilty on the charge of first-degree murder in the case of 32-year-old Californian Jodi Arias, a high-school dropout who pursued photography while working at a restaurant and in sales at PrePaid Legal Services.
On Saturday, June 22, Lifetime airs "Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret," a TV movie inspired by the case, which was in production during the latter phases of the trial. Tania Raymonde ("Lost," "Death Valley") stars as Arias, with Jesse Lee Soffer ("The Mob Doctor") as the victim, Travis Alexander.
She doesn't boil a pet bunny. But Jodi Arias displays wicked knife technique in a new Lifetime movie that could have just as well been titled, Fatal Attraction for Cable News. Premiering Saturday at 8 p.m. Edt, Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret is a ripped-from-cable-news saga of a woman scorned who last month was found guilty of killing her former lover, motivational speaker Travis Alexander. On June 4, 2008, Arias stabbed and slashed him nearly 30 times, slit his throat and shot him in the head in what prosecutors said was jealous rage, and what Arias unpersuasively argued was self-defense, when, according to her, »

Lifetime is giving the Jodi Arias murder trial, which dominated headlines, the TV movie treatment. Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret, directed by Jace Alexander (Law & Order, Rescue Me), centers on Arias — who was convicted of murdering ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander in 2008 by a jury earlier this year — and Alexander's romance. Leading up to the June 22 premiere, Lifetime released several previews from the TV movie, including a courtroom scene with Arias (Tania Raymonde) on the witness stand and Alexander (Jesse Lee Soffer) and Arias' tense breakup. "I had been following the trial well before I even

The Disney Channel sitcom Good Luck Charlie is breaking new ground with an episode featuring a family with two moms. One of the moms gets along fine with (Good Luck parent) Amy Duncan but the other mom isn’t happy that Bob‘s stories are so boring. The episode will air in 2014 and Disney is working with various experts to make sure its handled well.
As the World Turns (and The Mob Doctor) alum Jesse Lee Soffer has joined the cast of Chicago Fire spin-off, Chicago Pd. His character will be introduced in a couple of Chicago Fire episodes before he moves to the spin-off series.

Deadline reports that Soffer will be introduced on Season 2 of "Fire," before transitioning over to "Pd" which is expected to launch midseason on the network.
Melissa Sagemiller who was expected to bring the character of Detective Julia Willhite from "Fire" to "Pd" will not be continuing with the spinoff.
Soffer was a regular on last season's short-lived Fox drama "The Mob Doctor." He was also nominated for three Daytime Emmys for his work on "As the World Turns" and played Bobby Brady in "The Brady Bunch Movie" and "A Very Brady Sequel."
Lifetime's "Jodi Arias" movie airs Saturday. »
Jesse Lee Soffer has closed a deal as a new series regular on NBC‘s midseason drama series Chicago Pd. On the Chicago Fire spinoff, Soffer will play a young police detective who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. I’ve learned that Soffer’s character will be introduced this fall on the mothership series Chicago Fire in a couple of episodes before segueing to Chicago Pd. NBC employed a similar strategy with the other characters from the spinoff who made their debut on Chicago Fire. (Of the Chicago Pd cast members introduced on Chicago Fire last season, Melissa Sagemiller will not continue on the show.) Soffer, repped by Silver Lining Entertainment and Innovative Artists, will be able to do both shows as Chicago Fire is a midseason series and goes into production later than Chicago Fire. I hear Soffer got the attention of NBC executives with »

New York -- She doesn't boil a pet bunny. But Jodi Arias displays wicked knife technique in a new Lifetime movie that could have just as well been titled, "Fatal Attraction for Cable News."
Premiering Saturday at 8 p.m. Edt, "Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret" is a ripped-from-cable-news saga of a woman scorned who last month was found guilty of killing her former lover, motivational speaker Travis Alexander. On June 4, 2008, Arias stabbed and slashed him nearly 30 times, slit his throat and shot him in the head in what prosecutors said was jealous rage, and what Arias unpersuasively argued was self-defense, when, according to her, he attacked her.
But you know all that. "Dirty Little Secret" unearths no secrets, dirty or otherwise. Every sordid detail, it seems, has been trumpeted for years by the media, then recycled for months during Arias' trial in Phoenix that got blanket coverage on TV and in particular on cable's Hln, »
With a sordid “true story” of sex, violence and Mormonism tailor-made for TV-movie treatment, “Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret” makes no apologies for its obligatory exploitation. Twenty years ago, the major networks would’ve been fighting for the rights to Arias’ tawdry tale, and conflicting points of view could have inspired multiple pics à la Amy Fisher. In 2013, Lifetime has the market all to itself and the cabler should reap the ratings rewards with a timely — and undeniably trashy — take.
Not a moment was wasted bringing this quickie cash-in to the screen. “Secret” was already deep into production when a jury found Arias (played by Tania Raymonde) guilty on May 8 of first-degree murder in the brutal stabbing death of ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander (Jesse Lee Soffer).
But the 32-year-old mystery woman was convicted as a cold-hearted villain in the court of public opinion long before a formal verdict arrived, and “Secret »

"Smash" may be yesterday's news, but its former stars Megan Hilty and Sean Hayes are still working together. TVLine was the first to report that Hilty will replace Lindsay Sloane on Hayes' new NBC series "Sean Saves The World." The actress will now play Liz, Hayes' character's co-worker and best friend.
Both actors tweeted their excitement about reuniting.
