Fox is letting the music play this January, with the return of “American Idol” and the debut of drama “Empire” slated for Wednesday, Jan. 7.
“Idol” is kicking off its 14th season a week earlier than usual, and “Empire,” a family drama set in the music industry starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, will follow with a premiere that Fox says will include limited commercial interruption.
“Empire” will air regularly on Wednesday following “American Idol.” And by bowing on Jan. 7, “Empire” won’t have to face the timeslot’s biggest drama, as CBS’ “Criminal Minds” will be pre-empted for the People’s Choice Awards.
Fox is expected to reveal additional schedule details soon. It’s unclear what Wednesday’s schedule announcement for “Empire” means for current Wednesday 9 p.m. occupant “Red Band Society,” a first-year drama that has struggled in the ratings but remains a favorite of the network. Fox »

The second season of HBO’s standout smash, True Detective, has added another two names to its growing cast roster. Joining Nic Pizzolatto’s gritty cop drama are The L Word‘s Lolita Davidovitch and Intruders baddie James Frain.
The much-awaited sophomore season of the show will shed its original story, instead focusing on an entirely new set of characters. From what we understand, this new string of episodes will take place in Los Angeles with three cops who “must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.”
With Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson’s infamous duo relegated to the series’ history, this season’s storyline is slated to involve three new officers played by Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and a still-unconfirmed Rachel McAdams. Their investigation will see the trio tangled up in the activities of Vince Vaughn’s career criminal.
Newcomers Davidovich and Frain will be »

The portrayal of the Lgbt community on TV has come a long way since 1963, when NBC’s “Espionage” became the first drama series to use the word homosexual in a script.
On Wednesday night, the Paley Center’s L.A. Benefit Gala offered a look back at the last 50 years of programming and gathered small screen stars including Portia de Rossi, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Eric Stonestreet to celebrate TV’s impact on Lgbt equality. The fundraising event, held at the Skirball Cultural Center and sponsored by Honey Maid, chronicled the history of Lgbt images in television, from dramas and comedies to TV movies, miniseries and sports.
De Rossi, who was accompanied on the red carpet by her mother-in-law Betty DeGeneres, discussed her own personal struggles and growth as an actress and member of the Lgbt community.

Based on characters created by Scottish novelist/crime writer Val McDermid, Wire in the Blood follows Elizabeth Chase (played on the ITV series by Hermione Norris), a police detective who recruits Dr. Tony Hill (originally played by Robson Green), an unconventional clinical psychologist who has a talent for catching killers before they are able to strike again. Hill does so by analyzing both victim and killer, demonstrating empathy for both sides.
Yet another gritty British detective drama is scoring a remake by a U.S. broadcast network, this time it's ABC developing a series adaptation of the psychological thriller "Wire in the Blood" based on Val McDermid's novels and ITV's well-regarded TV show which ran from 2002-2008.
Robson Green starred in the original as Dr. Tony Hill, an unconventional and eccentric clinical psychologist with a talent for catching serial killers and empathising with both victim and killer. He works with the police in the fictional West Yorkshire town of Bradfield to help solve cases.
The U.S. version shifts the action to New York City where someone has been killing women and a detective named Elizabeth Chase brings this new version of Tony Hill in to help. Author/TV writer A.M. Homes (The L Word") will pen the script for the remake which ABC Studios, Endemol Studios and Mandeville Films will produce. »

Wood, 27, and Moennig, 36, both attended the Hammer Museum’s annual Gala in the Garden in L.A. on Saturday, Sept. 12, and arrived together to pose one after the other at the event’s red carpet. Once inside, out bisexual Wood and Moennig, best known for playing a lesbian on Showtime’s The L Word, reportedly weren’t shy about being affectionate.
“Evan Rachel Wood arrived with Kate Moennig,” a source told the New York Post's’Page Six. “They were holding hands and looked very much like a couple.” Inside, the two went off to a secluded table where they “kept close all night,” according to the insider.
A couple of days before heading to the gala together, Wood and Moennig enjoyed a »
“I thought that I could put together a found-footage type film…but with a twist. I wanted real terror and fear, as raw as possible, fear spawning from humans inflicting pain onto other humans, but without the crutch of the paranormal stuff," director Simon Brand says in the press notes for "Default." And especially coming in the wake of "Captain Phillips," which utilized Paul Greengrass' shaky cam technique for a whole new level of immersion, Brand's goals make a persuasive argument. And we can only imagine that the filmmaker's enthusiasm is what nabbed the attention of rising star David Oyelowo (who features in "Interstellar," "A Most Violent Year," and "Selma" in the next few months) and "The L Word" and "Ray Donovan" actress Katherine Moennig. None of those actors could have been have drawn to the film's script by Jim Wolfe Jr. and Dan Bence. What starts as an potentially intellectually stimulating. »

Submit a question! You can email firstname.lastname@example.org, leave a comment, or tweet @margeincharge with the hashtag #staytuned. I'm looking for some good shows with interesting, multifaceted, well-developed Lgbt characters. So often the characters are great, but the show is ridiculous (Queer as Folk, The L Word, Glee); the show is great, but the character doesn't have much to do (Mad Men); or the show and the characters are all just crap (The New Normal, uggghhh). As a hopeless romantic, I would also love a show where the Lgbt character gets a good romance (unlike poor loveless Thomas on Downton Abbey). I've seen Orange Is the New Black and loved it, seen Looking and liked it. What else »

There are few filmic genres that get your blood pumping quite like a good hostage drama, thanks to the back-and-forth between characters and the inevitable double-crossing along with last-minute bargaining between the two or more parties. So, following the award-winning success of last year’s astute hostage drama, Captain Phillips, Amplify is hoping to recapture that specific air of tension with this year’s Default.
Billed as a claustrophobic thriller, the film largely takes place 35,000 feet in the air, where an american news crew find their plane hijacked by a gang of Somalian pirates. Led by Atlas (David Oyelowo), the terrorists seek to record an interview with renown journalist, Frank Saltzman.
Default was directed by Simon Brand — known for his work on Paraiso Travel and Unknown — and is said to hone the socio-political undertones found in Tom Hanks’ aforementioned thriller. Joining Oyelowo on the casting list is Jeanine Mason, Stephen Lord »
