With Hollywood director Bryan Singer at the center of accusations of molesting a minor 15 years ago, his name will not be used to promote new ABC drama series Black Box. A small portion of the promos in circulation for the series, which premieres next Thursday, featured the X-Men director’s name. They have now been pulled, at least for the time being, according to sources. Former House executive producer Singer serves as an executive producer on the straight-to-series drama starring Kelly Reilly as a famous neuroscientist who is bipolar. Below is the official long trailer for the show, widely available online, in which Singer is indirectly referenced as Black Box being “from the executive producer(s) of House.” Related: ‘X-Men’s Bryan Singer To Skip This Weekend’s WonderCon In addition to Black Box, Singer also executive produces the upcoming CBS drama series Battle Creek, from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan »

Based on the works of crime novelist Elmore Leonard and developed for television by showrunner Graham Yost, the FX drama series Justified is wrapping up its fifth season and looking ahead to its sixth and final season. As things wind down, U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) finally faces off with Darryl Crowe Jr. (Michael Rapaport), and the fate of Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) and his love for Ava (Joelle Carter) are still unresolved. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider to discuss the events of Season 5, Aussie actor Damon Herriman talked about how much fun it was to expand his character this season, how much more worried he was that he wouldn’t make it to the end alive, why viewers have grown to feel sympathy for Dewey Crowe, what Dewey’s perfect world would look like, what he did to prepare for this role, what it’s »

It’s understood that the pair gave serious consideration to moving on to entrepreneurial production opportunities before re-upping with the studio. But Erlicht and Van Amburg have spent the past nine years building up a strong roster of creative talent at the studio — including such heavy hitter showrunners as Vince Gilligan, David Shore, Shawn Ryan and Ronald Mooore — and in the end they likely wanted to see many of the projects in the works through to fruition. The execs are believed to have set a three-year extension with Sony.
In recent months Sony Pictures TV has received straight to series orders for five series: Syfy’s “Helix,” Starz’s “Outlander,” AMC’s “Better Call Saul,” CBS’ “Battle Creek” and an untitled drama for Netflix from the production team behind “Damages. »

As it did for feature film scribes in December, the Wgaw today announced the 15 winners of its 2014 Writer Access Project honoring diversity in TV writing. The program first launched in 2009 aiming to help diversify TV writers rooms by highlighting writers with TV staffing experience and bring their scripts to the attention of industry figures. Eligible writers had to submit themselves in one of five categories: minority writers, writers with disabilities, women writers, 55-and-over writers, and gay and lesbian writers. “The intention of the Writer Access Project is very simple. It draws the best, experienced writers who, for whatever reason, have not been able to get their material in front of showrunners and lets their work speak for itself. The focus is put on the one thing that truly matters when hiring a writer: the words he or she puts on the page,” said 2014 Wap Drama judge Glen Mazzara (The Walking Dead »

Josh Duhamel has joined David Shore and Vince Gilligan's new police drama "Battle Creek".

After AMC’s Breaking Bad ended on such an incredibly high note, all eyes turned to creator Vince Gilligan, with many wondering if there was any hope of him ever masterminding a show that could match that drama (widely considered to be one of the finest TV shows of all time) in terms of critical acclaim and off-the-charts ratings. So, there’s a lot of attention being paid to Gilligan’s next project, CBS police drama Battle Creek, set to premiere this fall. Now, CBS has announced that the show recently snagged Josh Duhamel for a leading role.
Though Duhamel’s past acting credits, which include the Transformers franchise, New Year’s Eve and Life As We Know It, aren’t stellar, I can’t deny that the idea of watching the Hollywood star team up with Law & Order: Svu‘s Dean Winters (cast earlier this month) holds a certain appeal. »

Vince Gilligan's Battle Creek, the detective series CBS passed on over a decade ago but in the wake of Breaking Bad's critical adulation are now dusting off, has found a pilot director. Bryan Singer, a man whose plate is currently full of X-Men, will direct the first episode of the already-gone-to-season-order crime drama.
House's David Shore will be showrunning Battle Creek, which tells the story of two detectives attempting to clean up "the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, Michigan in the face of a lack of resources".
The setup for this series will be the same as it was with Fox's "House" - David Shore will serve as show runner while Singer will exec produce the series and direct the pilot.

That's no easy task, since they have few resources at their disposal and a decaying, troubled area to work in. They do have colleagues, »
