6 December 2012 1:36 PM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Birthday shoutouts go to Ryan Carnes (above), who is 30, Tom Hulce is 59, and Ryan White would have been 41. Gabriel Mann says that a deal is almost in place for an "iconic TV actress" to play his mother on Revenge. But who could it be? I like the idea of Donna Mills or Judith Light. The Grammy Nominations have been announced, with Frank Ocean up for a number of big awards, including Best New Artist and Album Of The Year. Also, Kathy Griffin is nominated again for Comedy Album, and Rachel Maddow, Ellen Degeneres and Janis Ian are up for Spoken Word Recording Meanwhile, Justin Bieber was shut out, and his manager is pissed.Good riddance to an asshat.Del Shores talks about bringing Southern Baptist Sissies to the big screen.Below you can see the first teaser trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness.

Susanna Fogel and Joni Lefkowitz, creators of the HBO comedy pilot Washingtonienne, have come on board to write an adaptation of the Mexican drama series Terminales for ABC Family. The hire seems appropriate as Terminales is sometimes described as “Sex and the City‘if Carrie Bradshaw was dying of cancer” and Sarah Jessica Parker, who played Bradshaw on the hit HBO comedy, developed and executive produced Washingtonienne. Created and produced by Miguel Angel Fox, Terminales chronicles the life of young and successful publicist April Marquez who is diagnosed with terminal cancer.
