With only a handful of episodes left until the first season finale, The Originals is really stepping up the drama. Father Kieran is having some serious personal issues due to his being under a witch's curse, and Hayley is in the midst of a tragedy out in the woods. To give you a small taste of the madness, this week's episode involves the following: electroshock therapy, someone being smothered with a pillow, an explosion, and an immense amount of sexual tension - as always. This week, we've enlisted Gilmore Girls to help demonstrate our feelings. Here goes nothing! Source: The CW »

In season 5 of Mad Men, Gilmore Girls’s Alexis Bledel played a sad suburban housewife that Pete Campbell couldn’t resist. Last season, Don Draper had an affair with his neighbor’s wife, played by Freaks and Geeks star Linda Cardellini. So it made some sense that last night, during the season premiere of Mad Men, the mysterious beauty who shared a red-eye flight with Don was played by none other than Neve Campbell — also known as the star of Party of Five. If Don Draper doesn’t have a specific type, Matthew Weiner does.
Campbell plays a young widow »

MTV has been developing a TV series based on the Scream franchise, and the network has started the casting process. Thanks to TV Line, we have plot information and character details on four of the series regulars.
The pilot episode was written by Jill Blotevogel (Ravenswood, Harper’s Island, Eureka). The reports also says that the series "kicks off with a YouTube video going viral, which will have adverse repercussions for teenager Audrey and seemingly serve as the catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to [her] town’s troubled past.”
There's still no word on who will be directing the pilot, but I know the network has been working hard trying to get Wes Craven on board.
Here are the character breakdowns:
- Harper Duval: A 16-year-old beauty “who’s a little too introverted and intellectual to be a social butterfly” but has nevertheless been annointed by the »

Over the last few years we’ve seen a resurgence of horror and serial killer dramas make their way to our television sets and give us nightmares on a weekly basis. Dexter opened the door for serial killers, which has led to shows like The Following, Bates Motel, and Hannibal. We’ve also seen shows like The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow, and now the upcoming David Duchovny-starring Aquarius fall into the horror genre, each with varying degrees of success. In the near future, MTV will be taking a stab (pun intended) at the horror game by bringing the popular Scream series to the small screen.
That’s right, Ghostface and the unlucky town of Woodsboro are headed to TV. It’s been about a year since MTV greenlit the pilot and things have been pretty quiet ever since. Thanks to TVLine though, we now have »

El Rey Network today announced the start of production in Los Angeles on the cable channel's second scripted original, "Matador," and announced additional cast members including Tanc Sade ("The Mentalist," "Gilmore Girls") in the lead role of Alec Holester. The new action series, from executive producers Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman ("Sleepy Hollow," "Fringe") is set to debut this July on Robert Rodriguez's new cable network and is comprised of 13 hour-long episodes. "Matador" chronicles the unlikely rise of Tony "Matador" Bravo, a popular soccer star who comes to be known as much for his playboy antics off the field as his dynamic moves on it. But what his fans and family don't realize is that it's all a »
The pilot will center a young teenager named Audrey and starts when a viral Youtube video triggers a murder that brings up her town's troubled past to the surface. The studio has also released a list of four main characters. Check out the full descriptions below.
* Harper Duval: A 16-year-old beauty "who's a little too introverted and intellectual to be a social butterfly" but has nevertheless been annointed by the popular crowd to be one of their own. "She feels guilty that she has drifted away from former best friend Audrey," but at least she's got a Gilmore Girls-esque relationship with mom Maggie to keep her sane.
* Audrey Jesen: Haper's former Bff is described as "the bi-curious daughter of a Lutheran pastor" who's "more arresting-looking than pretty. »
Somehow, when none of us were looking, The CW became the preeminent geek network. I know. I’m as surprised as anyone, but maybe we shouldn’t be. The CW was created when both networks that aired Buffy the Vampire Slayer merged, after all. But still, how did this happen?
The CW launched in 2006 with shows like Gilmore Girls, America’s Next Top Model, Seventh Heaven, and One Tree Hill. Geekish programming had a small foothold on Thursday with Smallville and Supernatural, but the rest was tween girl bait (except for Friday Night Smackdown, aimed at… whoever watches pro wresting). One of their only two new shows was Hidden Palms, a wannabe The O.C. And they continued that way for awhile, making glossy teen soaps like Gossip Girl and 90210.

Last night's two episodes of The Mindy Project established that yes, Mindy and Danny are going to give things a go. Great! No one wants a dragged-out will-they-won't-they thing anymore. It's boring and annoying. That said, putting an opposites-attract couple together comes with its own set of issues — but lucky for Danny, Mindy, and the show as a whole, this situation has happened before. Danny and Mindy are Luke and Lorelai from Gilmore Girls, so there's a road map.Gilmore Girls' Luke is a quick-to-anger curmudgeon with lingering unresolved feelings about his father, a loving but imperfect relationship with a sibling, and a persistent feeling that he is the last sane person left in this crazy world. He's divorced. He's surrounded by weirdos whom he outwardly barely tolerates, but we all know deep down he really loves and treasures them. Sound familiar? Other than being a teen mother, Mindy »

A Scream TV series has been in development for a number of years and we previously reported that MTV committed to a pilot episode. The casting process has now started and character details have emerged, giving us a better idea of what to expect from the series. Although we’ve heard a number of writer names associated with the project over the years, TVLine is reporting that the pilot is moving forward with a script from Jill Blotevogel.
The story is said to “kick off with a YouTube video going viral, which will have adverse repercussions for teenager Audrey and seemingly serve as the ‘catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to [her] town’s troubled past.’” Here’s a look at the main characters:

Investigation Discovery is getting into scripted mini-series. According to EW, the channel has ordered Heartbreakers, , which will star Jack Wagner, Christopher Knight, Kevin Sorbo, Antonio Sabato Jr. and Rob Estes playing men who start out seeming like dream husbands but turn out to be nasty criminals. Basically, it’s still true crime stories, but without the narrator interrupting the dramatizations and actors you recognize.
TV Guide reports that Bruno Bichir, brother of The Bridge star Demian Bichir (apparently they’re such a prolific acting family, the Mexican MTV Movie Awards have a “Best Bichir in a Movie” category) will join his sibiling in multiple episodes of the upcoming season of The Bridge. He’ll play a Mexican businessman »

(Cbr) Nick Frost is one step closer to a regular American television gig.

Both pilots grew out of her previous overall with the studio.
“Jennie’s had a remarkable pilot season, selling a comedy as well as a very unique twist on the most popular genre in the world, the telenovela,” said David Stapf, president of CBS Television Studios. “There is truly nothing she can’t do. Jennie is one of the most versatile, inventive writers and showrunners working today and we feel very fortunate that CBS will continue to be her home for years and years to come.”
Urman, who created the short-lived CW show “Emily Owens, MD” and penned the romantic comedy feature “Something Borrowed,” expressed similar sentiments, saying “I am thrilled to continue my great relationship with David Stapf, »

Wrapping a very strong development season, Jennie Snyder Urman has re-upped her overall deal at CBS Television Studios for three more years. Urman, who previously created the CW drama Emily Owens, MD for the studio, sold three projects this season — two of which, drama Jane The Virgin at the CW, based on the popular telenovela, and comedy Sober Companion at Fox, were picked up to pilot. Both are considered high-profile contenders, with Sober Companion boasting a cast led by Nick Frost and Justin Long. “Jennie’s had a remarkable pilot season, selling a comedy as well as a very unique twist on the most popular genre in the world, the telenovela,” said CBS TV Studios president David Stapf. “There is truly nothing she can’t do. Jennie is one of the most versatile, inventive writers and showrunners working today and we feel very fortunate that CBS will continue to be »

No, seriously, when is the Gilmore Girls movie happening?

Graham is in fact an author in real life, with a book, "Someday, Someday, Maybe: A Novel." For "Sesame Street," she and Grover create a new story together. It's about a dill pickle. After a "terrible deli accident," the pickle moves home, ending up "living in a tropical fish tank."
Alas, there is a bit of a controversy toward the end of the video. Grover points out that this book seems to be writing itself -- at this point, the book contests authorship.
Will copyright law be included in the next "Sesame Street" video? »
