A Double Order of “Archer,” Isaiah Washington Returns to “Grey’s Anatomy” and a “Cosmos” for the 21st Century

E! has ordered its first scripted drama, The Royals, about a British royal family with Elizabeth Hurley starring.

Lana! Lana! Laaaaaana! Guess who got renewed? Yep, FX has ordered a sixth and seventh season of the hilarious Archer.

In disappointing news, the BBC is shutting down BBC Three. Why should U.S. viewers care about this decision? BBC Three is the source of a good number of shows that developed loyal followings stateside like Gavin & Stacey, Being Human, Little Britain, and Torchwood. The channel will continue as a streaming video channel, but celebrities like Matt Lucas are already campaigning to save the channel.

I’m not sure how I feel about the news, as reported by EW, that Isaiah Washington will return to Grey’s Anatomy. At first I was angry, but it’s a one-episode appearance as part of Sandra Oh‘s exit from the series. I guess »

“Looking” Faces a Minority Trap, a “Portlandia” Teaser and Britney Spears Becomes a “Simpsons” Figure

20 February 2014 4:34 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


Hln has announced its first set of new shows as part of its new identity as the channel for the “social media generation”. It includes I Can Haz NewsToons highlighting online political satire, Keywords which sounds like an online scavenger hunt game show and #What’s Your Fomo about people’s “Fear of Missing Out”. I double checked the story to make sure it didn’t come from The Onion. It isn’t. I think. I’d better check again.

Talking to a panel, Looking writer Jc Lee commented on the criticism the show has received from gay viewers, “It’s a minority trap… When you have a piece that showcases a community, there’s this identity factor where if you’re showing a certain kind of queerness, you’re not honoring what queerness is. There’s a sense their queerness feels threatened by a show that is normalizing it. »
