Ahead of the series debut, Comedy Central has renewed animated series “Legends of Chamberlain Heights” for a second season. The first season premieres Sept. 14.
The renewal announcement was made Thursday evening at Comic-Con in San Diego.
“Legends of Chamberlain Heights” is described as an urban animated series mixing raucous comedy and social commentary that centers on three high school freshman basketball benchwarmers: Jamal, Grover and Milk. The trio of friends tackle life with some wins and some losses, but failure doesn’t faze them since they’re legends — even if it’s just in their own minds.

Though she's committed to two other sci-fi projects and Own's "Queen Sugar" drama series, "Selma" helmer Ava DuVernay has taken on another gig - she's set to direct "The Battle Of Versailles" for HBO Films.
DuVernay and Michael Starrbury will co-write the film based on fashion journalist Robin Givhan's 2015 non-fiction novel which deals with the 1973 Palace of Versailles fashion show which served as a fundraiser for the restoration of King Louis Xiv's palace.
The show pitted the top five French designers (Yves Saint Laurent, Hubert de Givenchy, Pierre Cardin, Emanuel Ungaro, and Marc Bohan of Christian Dior) against five then-unknown Americans (Oscar de la Renta, Bill Blass, Halston, Stephen Burrows and Anne Klein, who brought along her then-assistant Donna Karan) in front of an audience of the world's social elite.
The French did a big-budget, two-hour extravaganza featuring elaborate set pieces and a live orchestra. The Americans a 35-minute show »

Netflix’s “Bloodline” sets a Season 2 premiere date; “The Walking Dead” will get an extra-long Season 6 finale; “The Talk” will once again announce the Daytime Emmy nominations, and more from across the dial in today’s news round-up.
“The Walking Dead” will extend its Season 6 finale timeslot to 90 minutes, according to EW. Much like last year’s finale and the Season 6 premiere, the extended episode will run for an hour and a half on AMC, presumably to maximize the zombie mayhem in an episode that star Andrew Lincoln says made him “physically sick” after reading the script.
For the second year running, CBS’ “The Talk” will exclusively reveal the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards nominations live on Thursday, March 24 from 2-3 p.m. Et; 1-2 p.m. Pt/Ct. The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences will then release the full list online following the live announcement.
