Real Talk: you know what’s an endlessly charming and awesome film? “Pitch Perfect.” Coming out of nowhere in the fall of 2012, at least expectations-wise, the college a capella ensemble comedy “Pitch Perfect” turned out to be a huge hit for Universal. And for good reason, because in terms of modern “teen” comedies (yeah, they’re heading into college, but they’re still just hitting adulthood), it’s the best one since “Mean Girls” in 2004. Yep, real talk. What’s even more impressive is that the comedy was the feature-length directorial debut of Jason Moore (he directed episodes of “Dawson's Creek,” “One Tree Hill” and “Everwood”). But he’s not back for the sequel -- instead, the movie will be another feature-length directorial debut: that of “Pitch Perfect” star Elizabeth Banks. She's back in front of the camera as well, along with most of the cast (writer Kay Cannon »

Mark Schwahn, the creator of the hit series One Tree Hill, is back with The Royals—an exciting new show that offers viewers a fresh perspective on royalty. The Royals stars an impressive cast that includes Elizabeth Hurley, Vincent Regan, William Moseley and Alexandra Park, each of whom will portray a member of a fictional royal family in modern-day London. "I just thought it would be really interesting to take a look behind the curtain," Schwahn reveals. "Who are these people? What do they want? What will they do to get it? I thought it was really fascinating and a great idea for the foundation of a story." The series, which debuts in early March, will depict the royal family's »
Good news, Forever fans! Last week ABC announced that Forever was picked up for a full season! Great news if you’ve been enjoying the show! This week, the chief suspect in a murder investigation was a man’s “therapist”, but we would call her, well, a dominatrix. This particular dominatrix also had enough medical knowledge to actually further the investigation. The dominatrix (One Tree Hill’s Hilarie Burton) is one of the more compelling guest characters to appear on the show so far. We also saw guest star Jane Seymour (Franklin & Bash) as Abe’s ex-wife and off-again, on-again flame. This episode was the best yet. I’ve been on the fence about Forever from the beginning, but this was the first episode that made me excited for the future of the show. Number one, we learned more about Henry in the right way. I’ve wanted to know »

Hilarie Burton is playing a dominatrix on Tuesday's episode of Forever, but at home? She's more into flannel and boots than leather and lingerie. That's because the One Tree Hill star and her husband, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, live on a farm upstate filled with animals ranging from the typical (cows) to the not-so-typical (alpaca). "I'm normally in Carhartt flannel and covered in paint and sawdust and muck boots, so then I get to come into the city and I've gotta shave my legs and paint my nails," Burton tells EW. "It's a weird duality." On Forever, Burton's character is a »

Before The CW launched in the fall of 2006, there was Upn and The WB. Upn aired a limited mount of original series, from Everybody Hates Chris to Veronica Mars, and didn’t really a particular brand or audience it was going after. The WB, on the other hand, had a specific specialty for shows that it aired. In some way or another, these series would grounded in and focused on family. Look at the shows that populated The WB in the early 2000s. You, of course, had Gilmore Girls, which centered around the mother-daughter relationship of Lorelei and Rory. Additionally, there was Everwood, which told the story of a widower trying to find a new beginning with his two kids; One Tree Hill, which explored the nature of family through the relationships of Nathan and Lucas and their connections (or lack thereof) to their mothers, Karen and Deb, and their father, »

Sunday marks the return of HBO's The Newsroom, a series that isn't exactly known for being subtle—especially in its first season, which featured a memorable scene set to Coldplay's "Fix You." Anvilicious? Oh yeah. Emotionally manipulative? You betcha. Surprisingly effective all the same? Unfortunately, yes, according to EW.com's Lanford Beard. Which is how we came upon this week's PopWatch Confessional question: What's the song that's had a surprising, embarrassing emotional effect on you? Lanford Beard, staff editor: Between all its walk-and-talks, Network rip-offs, and "women be klutzy" gags, The Newsroom's first season actually took on a few actual news events, »

Peyton Sawyer, we hardly recognize you! One Tree Hill's Hilarie Burton is set to take on much more risqué role when she guest stars in Forever's Nov. 11 episode as —wait for it—a dominatrix therapist. We have your exclusive first look at Burton in action (no, not that kind of action!) on ABC's new hit drama, and "Jenry" fans may want to avert their eyes. Why? Because her character, Iona Payne, is getting awfully close to Henry (Ioan Gruffudd). So why is Henry visiting and getting a kiss on the cheek (!) from a dominatrix therapist? Iona becomes a suspect in Henry and Jo's (Alana De La Garza) investigation of the death of a successful »

In his 200-plus years on Earth, I wonder if Henry Morgan has had a chance to watch much TV, especially teen dramas. Well, whether Henry has or has not, Forever will soon find itself dealing with a cast member from one of the most popular teen dramas of all-time, as One Tree Hill star Hilarie Burton, who played Peyton Sawyer on The WB/CW series for six seasons, has landed a guest role on the new ABC drama.

But no one should ever underestimate Peggy.
