'The Bachelorette' Emily Maynard makes for an interesting fashion challenge
"I went more conservative in the beginning because I didn't want to turn people off to her," he tells Zap2it. "I wanted to be respectful of her as a mother and not offend other mothers who don't have stylists and a makeup artist."
But although Fetman initially downplayed Emily Maynard's sexiness, her look is full-on glam as the season progresses.
"Emily and I are very similar in our taste," he says. "We like hot and sexy and glitzy, and we like over the top. We just want to have fun with fashion. We like shiny and sequin and supertight. The first couple of episodes I wanted to make sure it was her putting outfits together and sometimes I would have to say 'Let's tone it down until the audience gets to know you. »

Watch: Mindy Kaling Looks for Love in the Trailer for 'The Mindy Project'
Who hasn't watched Mindy Kaling as Kelly Kapoor on "The Office" (or as the friend who's more interesting than the leads in "The Five-Year Engagement" or "No Strings Attached") and thought "that girl deserves her own show"? So it was welcome news when Fox picked up Kaling's new sitcom "The Mindy Project" for 2012-2013 -- the series will feature Kaling as an Ob-gyn who's trying to get her personal and professional lives in order, with "True Blood" actor Anna Camp as her best friend and indie stalwart Chris Messina as the colleague she's clearly going to snark at until they eventually fall in love. The trailer for the show, below, like last year's one for "New Girl," looks more like a movie than a series, but if "The Mindy Project" ends up where "New Girl" did by the latter half of its first season, it'll be well worth a watch. »

Fall Preview: Watch Full Trailers For The Mindy Project, The Following and 3 Other Fox Shows
Move over, New Girl — there’s a new new girl coming to Fox for the 2012-13 TV season: Mindy Kaling as an adorably lovelorn gynecologist. And she’s not alone. The network’s also got Kevin Bacon playing a serial killer-stopper and Jordana Spiro as a fearless Mob doc.
Wanna meet ‘em? Of course you do. But since premiere season is still a ways away, maybe the full-length trailers for their respective series (and more) will suffice to tide you over.

SNL: Will Ferrell, We'd Missed You!
SNL can often feel like a 90-minute party, at least for the people on stage, and the proceedings are rarely as festive as when a former cast member returns as a host. Usually the very fact that he or she is now hosting implies a post-SNL success of some kind, either in movies or primetime TV, which is cause for celebration in itself. But even better, returning alumni tend to travel in... More >> »

Saying Goodbye to Desperate Housewives: What'd You Think of the Series Finale?
Well, it's over. After eight seasons (and a shockingly high death rate considering the suburban setting), Desperate Housewives aired its series finale last night, wrapping things up fairy-tale-style with lots of heavily ever afters. Let's break down the highlights character by character:

Rob Riggle To Lead '80s Set Wall Street Comedy On HBO With Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg & Adam McKay Producing
Will Ferrell and Adam McKay have long recognized just how funny Rob Riggle is, casting him in their projects like "The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard," "Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby," "Step Brothers" and "The Other Guys." Now, they are rallying behind the actor to give him the lead role he's so long deserved on a pretty amazing sounding comedy project. Ferrell and McKay's Gary Sanchez shingle are teaming with a handful of folks including Mark Wahlberg to produce an untitled HBO show, set in the '80s, that will center on a hard living and successful bond trader (Riggle) who lives "a dark, self-centered, unhealthy life." Damn. Sounds like it will be a comedy mixed with drama, and we wouldn't be surprised if the tone is somewhere along the lines of the bruising laughs of "Eastbound & Down." And that's not a far off guess we think, considering Chris Henchy, »

Fox Plays Youth And Multimedia Cards In Upfront Presentation
Fox Entertainment chairman Peter Rice pitched a sales effort called The Bridge that he says will offer “tailored solutions” and track social activity around its shows 24/7. “Think of it as your bridge from our on-air to your digital and social” impressions. Sales president Toby Byrne noted that Hulu is included in upfront deals. About 20% of the audience for Fox’s New Girl watches off-air. ”Our business is not limited to television anymore….Calling network TV ‘traditional’ is a misnomer.” What’s more, broadcasts to platforms including VOD and Xbox game consoles will offer “an environment you can trust with the fast-forward button disabled.” He also urged advertisers to focus on “our concentration of viewers under 40.” Rice says that digital video providers such as a Google and Yahoo, which are also competing for TV ad dollars, will “find us a little like, welcome to the NFL.” Related: Fox Upfront Presentation: Live »

'The Bachelorette' Premiere Recap: Emily Maynard's One Hot Mama
Here we go again. Later in the summer, we'll be treated to the Olympics of athleticism. Tonight, we once again begin a slightly less ancient and much less honorable tradition -- the Olympics of televised dating. Tonight, 25 men began this harrowing race. This decathlon of emotions, embarrassment and ego. But by the end, only one man will be left standing with the shiny and coveted gold medal. Or, rather, the coveted woman who's wearing a shiny gold dress tonight -- Emily Maynard. And at the end of all this, she hopes to have something that many women would probably prefer over a gold medal: A diamond.
This is truly epic stuff, you guys! If only Morgan Freeman were here to do voiceover. »

Telemundo Upfront: 800 Hours — A 40% Boost — Of Original Programming
Telemundo Media lays claim to being the fastest-growing broadcast network in primetime among adults 18-49. At its programming upfront presentation this morning in New York, the Spanish-language service said it is seeking to build on that success significantly, with more than 800 hours of new content in the 2012-13 season — a nearly 40% increase in original programming. That will encompass six new primetime novelas, new daytime programs and the network’s first foray into unscripted and reality competition shows. As part of Telemundo’s multi-platform strategy, it also announced it will roll out a new logo and branding campaign in the fall, and Telemundo Digital unveiled a new entertainment app. Telemundo Media is a division of NBCUniversal and its strong growth is especially prized at parent company Comcast. Part of that success stems from the number of shows produced at Telemundo’s Studios in Miami, and the company announced it will increase »

'Smash's' Anjelica Huston on John Steinbeck playing Santa Claus and Marlon Brando's influence
Zap2it: You grew up around so many legends, who stands out for you?
Anjelica Huston: I grew up with a lot of interesting people like Carson McCullers and Arthur Miller and a lot of very interesting people who weren't necessarily Hollywood. There was a Japanese samurai who came over to Ireland (where her father lived in a castle in Ireland), and who, according to my father, was only allowed to cry three times in his life. It was extremely diverse. I met John Steinbeck. He was so kind and funny and sweet and affable and dear. I was 7 or 8 when he played Santa Claus for us. He used to write lovely letters. John Steinbeck used to sign his letters with a pigasus -- a pig with wings.

Matthew Perry's return and Ryan Murphy's 'New Normal': First impressions of NBC's 2012-13 comedies
When NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke described NBC's new series for the 2012-2013 season as "broad, accessible, smart, attention-getting shows" during the network's upfront presentation at Radio City Music Hall on May 14, it wasn't immediately clear whether that was just a typical boast or not. But after watching clips of the Ryan Murphy-created "The New Normal," about a gay couple and the surrogate carrying their child, and the Matthew Perry-starring "Go On," about a widower and the crazy characters from his grief support group, we think she might be right.
Even though those are NBC's cornerstone comedies for the new year, they're emotional, progressive and heartwarming. Salke and NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt and could've harped on the progressiveness and acceptance of their new shows, but they didn't -- they just focused on the fact that they think they're well-written and funny. While that remains to be seen, »
