Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez is in talks to star alongside Mark Wahlberg in Deepwater Horizon for Lionsgate. If a deal is finalized, The Wrap reveals she will play the female lead, Andrea Fleytas. The project is based on the true story of the 2010 Bp oil rig explosion that killed 11 crew members and resulted in the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history.
Mark Wahlberg is starring as Mike Williams, an electrician on the oil rig. Gina Rodriguez's Andrea Fleytas was overseeing the oil rig's navigation machinery when she noticed that no one had issued a distress signal. After she tried to contact the Coast Guard, she was reprimanded for her actions. Gina Rodriguez beat out Kristen Stewart for the coveted role.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” boosted in part by a weeklong trip to Los Angeles, drew nearly as many young adults (1.451 million/1.14 rating) as the combined totals of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (808,000/0.64 rating) and CBS’ “Late Show With David Letterman” (668,000/0.53 rating), according to “live plus same-day” Nielsen estimates.
In total viewers for the Jan. 29-Feb. 25 sweep, “Tonight Show” led with an average nightly audience of 3.882 million viewers, followed by “Late Show” (2.847 million) and “Kimmel” (2.763 million).
Comparisons to last February aren’t exactly apples to apples as the year-ago month included the highly rated opening days of Fallon on “Tonight” (he started Feb. 17) as well as some Olympics-related delays and pre-emptions.
But comparisons to his previous full sweep months as “Tonight Show” host are favorable. The 1.14 rating »

After last year’s digital debacle, the Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony is returning to TV in a deal with Pop, the former TV Guide Network cabler that was relaunched in January.
The 42nd annual Daytime Emmy telecast will originate from a soundstage on the Warner Bros. lot and air live on both coasts on April 26. Michael Levitt, a veteran events producer, will exec produce the broadcast for the New York-based National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, which administers the Daytime Emmys.
As viewership of the telecast has steadily declined, the Daytime Emmy kudocast has bounced around several networks during the past decade, from CBS to ABC to CW to Hln. Last year, producers failed to secure a TV pact so the ceremony from the Beverly Hilton was available only via a free live stream. That resulted in a high-volume of no-shows among winners and salty language flying. Host Kathy Griffin »

CBS has given a big promotion to the exec who has steered the success of “The Talk” during the past four years.
Angelica McDaniel, who was most recently senior VP of daytime at CBS, will take on oversight of program development for the CBS Television Distribution syndication unit. The consolidation means that Hilary Estey McLoughlin is out as CBS TV Distribution’s president of creative affairs after less than two years in the post. McLoughlin will segue to a production pact with the Eye.
The move allows CBS to streamline daytime development for the network with the division that fields shows for CBS O&Os as well as non-cbs stations across the country. The move makes sense from an efficiency standpoint at CBS, and it also rewards an exec who is seen as a rising star.
McDaniel will continue to report to CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler for CBS’ network daytime programming, »
