Warner Bros. TV Inks Overall Deal With Jeff Rake

Exclusive: Jeff Rake, writer/executive producer of Warner Bros TV‘s NBC pilot The Mysteries Of Laura, has signed an overall deal with the studio. Under the two-year pact, Rake will continue on Mysteries Of Laura if it goes to series as well as develop new projects.

Debra Messing returns to NBC with 'Mysteries of Laura' pilot

NBC and Debra Messing are continuing their long relationship with a drama pilot called "The Mysteries of Laura."

Messing, a season removed from "Smash," will play the title character in the show, and her involvement lifts a cast contingency on the pilot. The former "Will & Grace" star will play a homicide detective with a messy home life, where she's raising twins.

Jeff Rake ("The Tomorrow People," "Miss Match") is writing the pilot, which is based on a Spanish series. Rake will also executive produce with "Tomorrow People" and "Arrow" Ep Greg Berlanti.

Messing is currently starring in "Oustide Mullingar" on Broadway and will film "The Mysteries of Laura" once the play's run ends in mid-March. The pilot will film in New York.

Exclusive: First 10 minutes of Lake Bell's sharp and funny 'In A World...'
Lake Bell has always demonstrated a knack for comedy, and since 2003, when I first saw her in "Miss Match," a short-lived TV vehicle for Alicia Silverstone, she has appeared in at least 30 different films or TV shows. Like any actress, she is at the mercy of Hollywood in terms of what roles she plays. Or at least… she was. "In A World…" played at last year's Sundance Film Festival, and I missed it there. Then I proceeded to miss it at least a half-dozen other times, including the actual release date. Finally, when it showed up on the stack...

Interview: Actress Lake Bell Writes, Directs ‘In a World...’

Chicago – Lake Bell is a recognizable and successful character actress, having prominence in television (“Boston Legal”) and films (“It’s Complicated”). For her latest film, she wrote, directed and starred in a gentle parody of the voiceover profession, especially the intoned voices that narrate movie trailers, “In a World…”

Bell was born in New York City, and attended Saratoga College and Rose Bruford College in London, where she got bit with the acting bug and did several high level theater productions, including “The Seagull” and “Six Degrees of Separation.” She began her professional career in 2002 with the film “Speakeasy” and two episodes of TV’s popular “ER.” After a stint on the sitcom “Miss Match” the next year, she landed on “The Practice,” and became a regular on its spinoff, “Boston Legal.” She had a high profile film role as Alec Baldwin’s second wife in “It’s Complicated” (2009), and

Alicia Silverstone in Amy Heckerling's upcoming comedy 'Vamps': Are you totally buggin' for her to have a big screen comeback, too?
This could be it, PopWatchers, the thing that finally gets me into the vampire genre. I couldn’t be wooed by the Twilight saga, nor was I willing to take a bite out True Blood. But Vamps, the new comedy from director Amy Heckerling, about two blood-sucking gal pals (un)living it up in New York City, all while dealing with the drama of falling in love with a mortal, could be the one to do the trick. Why?

As if you even needed to ask: Alicia Silverstone is in it!

But even if my vampire aversion got the best of me,

Buddy Bites: A Star is Re-born, a Crew Walks Out, and a 'Teen Mom' is Served
All is not well in the television world! Here's the short scoop on some of this week's top stories.

Not So 'Simple' Nicole RichieABC just gave the go-ahead on a scripted television series starring Nicole Richie. Because apparently, based on two guest appearances on Chuck, the girl's got some acting chops. The series will be written by Jeff Rake, who also penned Miss Match. What's that, you've never heard of Miss Match? It starred Alicia Silverstone and only eight episodes aired in the Us. Also, the guy from Psych is in this episode.

Anyway, the comedy series will star Nicole Richie as a "professional woman/mom character." She is both of those things. To her credit, Nicole Richie was the less plastic of the two Simple Life stars. Would you watch her new TV show? And more importantly, does this mean the apocalypse is near? [Deadline]
