14 May 2015 12:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Wrapping up its most watched season in seven years, The CW Network presented its 2015-16 broadcast schedule today to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City. The indie-pop band Of Monsters and Men kicked off the presentation with a live performance of their latest single "Crystals," and their international hit song "Little Talks." Here's what CW's Mark Pedowitz had to say in a statement.

"This has been a terrific season for The CW, and is a result of a strategy we set in motion a few years ago to broaden out and grow our audience. We had our most watched season, and our highest-rated season among men, in seven years. We launched The CW's most watched series ever with The Flash, and with The Flash and Jane the Virgin, we received more critical acclaim than ever before. The CW is heading into »

Snap Judgments on the CW’s New Shows

14 May 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We know, you've watched a lot of trailers this week — but don't stop now! The CW had its upfront today, and while it's still the kid sibling to the big four, the glorious success of Jane the Virgin should at least make you curious. The CW only green-lit three new shows for its fall slate, but we have to say: They're a good-looking bunch. There's the one you might expect: DC's Legends of Tomorrow, as part of its ever-expanding superhero universe; a Contagion-like thriller called Containment; and an hour-long musical Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer). On to our snappy judgments:DC's Legends of Tomorrow Aren't our superhero shows doing so well? Let's make this universe so big that the CW is made of just DC superheroes and a cyborg Tyra Banks hosting America's Next Top Model, because let's face it, that show will live on forever. »

How ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Moved From Showtime to The CW

14 May 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The CW’s pickup of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” — originally developed at Showtime — took everyone by surprise, but CW president Mark Pedowitz tells Variety it’s a perfect fit for his network.

“Showtime felt it wasn’t right for them, but we think we’re the right place, particularly if you push it to the comedic hour world,” he says. The show had originally been conceived as a half-hour, but will be refashioned as an hourlong. It landed the 8 p.m. Monday slot, paired with “Jane the Virgin” to create a comedy block on the night. That’s new territory for the drama-centric CW.

The creators had shopped the show around after Showtime passed on it, and Pedowitz says he was impressed by its auspices. 

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” hails from multihyphenate Rachel Bloom, “The Devil Wears Prada” writer Aline Brosh McKenna and director Marc Webb (“The Amazing Spider-Man”). Bloom stars as a woman »

Bradley Cooper Will Reprise ‘Limitless’ Role For TV Series

13 May 2015 10:22 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bradley Cooper will reprise the role of Eddie Morra from the film Limitless, for a recurring role in a new TV series based on the hit movie. Limitless, directed by Neil Burger, was a surprise hit for Cooper back in 2011, and news broke earlier this year that the movie was to be adapted for television. We all expected that Cooper wouldn’t feature, but this latest news confirms that the actor will appear in some capacity, though Jake McDorman, who starred with Cooper on American Sniper, will play the main lead, Brian Finch.

The series, like the movie, revolves around a man who discovers the mysterious drug Nzt which allows its user to unlock their brain’s full potential. The character of Finch also “has a clandestine relationship with Senator Edward Mora (Cooper), a presidential hopeful and regular user of Nzt who has plans of his own for his new protégé, »

'Limitless' TV Show Will Have Bradley Cooper in Recurring Role

13 May 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When CBS issued a series order for Limitless last week, the network revealed some of the confirmed cast members, but, as it turns out, not all of them. During the network's upfront presentation earlier today, it was revealed that Bradley Cooper, who starred in the original 2011 Limitless movie, will reprise his role as Edward Mora, who is now a Senator. The actor will have a recurring role on the series, and while it isn't clear how many episodes he will star in, Mora will have a connection to the main character Brian Finch, played by Jake McDorman. Take a look at the official synopsis for the Limitless TV series below.

Based on the feature film, Limitless is a fast-paced drama about Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug Nzt and is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them. »

Bradley Cooper To Appear In The TV Series 'Limitless' When His Schedule Allows (Or When Ratings Are Needed)

13 May 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you missed the news, Bradley Cooper's 2011 sleeper hit "Limitless" is becoming a TV series on CBS. He will also serve as executive producer on the show, and it looks like he's going to take it one step further by popping up from time to time. Variety reports that the actor "may" recur on the show playing his role Eddie Mora from the movie, pending his ever busy schedule. But let's face it, Cooper is a pretty good guy to have in your pocket if sweeps is coming up and your show needs a little ratings boost. Anyway, Jake McDorman will lead the show as the Nzt addled Brian Finch who uses his drug-enhanced special abilities to help....solve FBI cases? They turned the premise of the movie about the unlocking the massive potential of the brain into a procedural? Ugh. Anyway, Jennifer Carpenter ("Dexter") is in support. Marc Webb »
