Chace Crawford's sexy abs were on display when he relaxed poolside in Mexico over the weekend. On Saturday, Chace and his famous brother-in-law, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, spent some quality time with their families while on vacation. Chace sported red swim trunks and a backward baseball hat as he hung out with the group, and at one point, he put on workout clothes to lift a pair of heavy dumbbells. (Flashback to all the times Chace has looked so perfect, he may as well have been a wax figure.) Chace's family trip comes just a few weeks after he was spotted with his Gossip Girl costar Ed Westwick in La. It's been more than two years since they said goodbye to the show, and they were all smiles while posing for a picture together.

ABC continues its commitment to great storytelling with the announcement of its 2015-16 slate of programming, including the addition of 10 new series. Paul Lee, president, ABC Entertainment Group, will unveil the network's new lineup to the advertising and media communities this afternoon at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall. Here's what Paul Lee had to say in a statement.
"Our new slate of shows continues the momentum from last year. ABC was the most buzzed about network, and the only major network to hold on to its audience and to grow in the target demo. Our 2015-16 schedule, with new shows and returning favorites that reflect our commitment to world-class storytelling, will solidify ABC's place as the network that raises the bar for what viewers expect from broadcast television.
ABC is the only major network to increase its Adult 18-49 audience during the 2014-15 season. ABC delivered 7 of the Top »
ABC opted for stability in the fall, launching just five new series with no major shakeups to its nightly strategies. The network, which had momentum this past season with improved ratings, is clearly hoping to maintain its uptick, simply swapping dramas for dramas and comedies for comedies.
ABC is poised to win the May sweep in adults 18-49 and will finish as the only Big Four broadcast network up in the demo vs. last season. For the season, ABC will finish a competitive third in 18-49 and is No. 1 with all sports excluded from averages.
Monday nights will stay put in the fall with “Dancing With the Stars,” followed by “Castle,” which just set both Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion, “our two beloved heroines and heroes,” said ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee, for its eighth season, following lengthy contract negotiations. After “DWTS” hands out the mirror ball, “The Bachelor” will come in, »

Additionally, ABC picked up The Family, which hails from Scandal/Grey’s Anatomy/Off the Map Ep Jenna Bans, the biblical saga Of Kings and Prophets, Gossip Girl Ep Josh Safran’s Quantico and the ’80s-set crime drama Wicked City (Fka L.A. Crime).

ABC has given the series greenlight to a half-dozen drama projects, ranging from a Biblical epic to an FBI 9/11 conspiracy vehicle to a long-con thriller from Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland shop. All six of the series hail from ABC Studios or the ABC Signature production unit.
The orders reinforce ABC’s strategy of loading up on dramas with an eye toward some shows with shorter-episode orders to help refresh the schedule and avoid repeats of new and returning series. The emphasis on ABC-produced projects makes it clear that the Alphabet is looking for maximum control of the digital windowing strategies on its shows, an increasingly important factor for broadcasting networks.
The six dramas getting the nod for ABC’s 2015-16 slate so far:
“Of Kings & Prophets”
An epic Biblical saga of faith, ambition and betrayal as told through the eyes of a battle-weary king, a powerful and resentful prophet and a »

Celebrity chef and peripatetic TV host Anthony Bourdain is credited as an executive producer of “Bone in the Throat,” a free adaptation of his novel about ambitious restaurateurs and minor-league Mafiosi in Manhattan’s Little Italy, so one must presume he approved of director/co-scripter Graham Henman’s decision to reconstitute the source material as a seriocomic tale of haute cuisine and criminal activity in East London. But the shifts in locale and characterization may not be for every taste: Although entertaining in fits and starts, the filmization too often has the flavor of a reheated leftover from the Guy Ritchie menu. Audiences aren’t likely to sample this middling concoction until it’s served in home-screen platforms.
The plot pivots on the aspirations of Will Reeves (Ed Westwick), the white sheep of a family of mob minions. Will has set his sights on the straight life of a master chef, »

Anthony Bourdain is an acclaimed chef who has recovered from drug addiction, hosted a handful of TV shows, and written several books and novels. So yes, he's probably done more today than you'll do all month, and the latest Bourdain associated project coming is "Bone In The Throat," based on his debut piece of fiction. It hits SXSW this weekend, and the first trailer has arrived. Ed Westwick, Tom Wilkinson, Rupert Graves, Vanessa Kirby, John Hannah, Steve Mackintosh, and Andy Nyman star in the first feature from director Graham Henman about a talented young chef who is being pulled in the East End London mob scene by his uncle, and must fight to survive. So yes, it's a pulpy tale that just happens to revolve around life in the kitchen, rather than something aiming for a more accurate view of life behind the stove. We'll see how many Michelin stars »
