Powerhouse movie producer Will Packer (Think Like A Man, About Last Night) has just sold his fourth series pitch under his company’s Universal Television deal, and it is an as-yet-untitled female buddy-cop show written by Amanda Lasher (Gossip Girl). With Lasher set to executive produce the show along with Packer, NBC have provided the creators with a script commitment.
Ccharacterizedas a “light” female cop show that centres on two Lapd homicide detectives trying to balance “messy” personal lives with their work on terrible crime scenes, the show seems to fall into a particular niche for the network that is currently poorly filled. While female-led drama – across the networks – boasts a vast array of strong characters, having those female characters lead a police-themed show as a pair is almost unheard of. Not since the days of Cagney And Lacey have we seen a cop show in which the female characters »

Heaven help me, I’ve taken to using lyrics from the Broadway musical Chicago in my recap headlines for The Voice. (Sample comment from my husband, reading over my shoulder, “I don’t get that reference. At all.” #GayCardRevoked)
But I swear, there’s good reason for my flight of fancy. After all, Season 7’s Blind Auditions yielded exactly one promising jazz vocalist — and yet after a Battle Rounds process that whittled the field from 48 down to 32 contestants, that chica is as extinct as the dodo emu, as defunct as the Walkman in your “shame-shame closet,” as mopped up as »

First up, we have the Duchess of Cambridge who is expecting her second child in April.
The barely showing royal arrived at the Natural History Museum in London for the Wildlife Photographer of The Year Awards Ceremony in this baby blue Jenny Packham gown. She even showed off a little leg. Scandal!
Keeping it classy in beige heels and a matching clutch, the 32-year-old looks modest and wrapped up on top. Unlike her Hollywood counterpart Blake Lively who put the goods on full display.

We were experiencing our fair share of Blake Lively withdrawals this year, but luckily, our needs have been met: since announcing her pregnancy in early October, the former Gossip Girl star has been showing off her growing baby bump quite a bit, both on the red carpet and on the streets of NYC. The last time we saw Blake at a high-profile event was in June, when she attended the Cfda Fashion Awards with designer Michael Kors and a Chime For Change cocktail reception with Beyoncé and Solange Knowles. In just the past two weeks, Blake has been out and about in a big way, walking the red carpet in curve-hugging dresses with husband Ryan Reynolds, heading out on solo shopping trips, and linking up with old friends and costars for evenings on the town. We're keeping track of Blake's outings leading up to the birth of her first baby »

Penn Badgley, who played young Brooklyn writer Dan Humphrey (and the guy who should have ended up with Blair—I’m just saying) on The CW’s Gossip Girl, will soon be making his return to television in a role that the gossip site and all its followers would approve of. The actor has joined the NBC miniseries The Slap in a recurring role as Jamie, the 25-year-old boyfriend of Mary-Louise Parker’s character, Anouk.

Gossip Girl would surely have a field day over this casting: Penn Badgley will recur on NBC’s miniseries The Slap as the 25-year-old boyfriend of Mary-Louise Parker’s character, our sister site Deadline reports.
The eight-episode mini — based on an acclaimed Australian project and written by Jon Robin Baitz (The West Wing) — is about how one man’s punishment of another couple’s child explodes into a complex family drama.
Have “The Walking Dead” fans become numb to all the atrocities? "'The Walking Dead' has always lived in uncharted television territory, and you can’t say that viewers weren’t warned that this season was determined to go even further beyond Thunderdome,” says Jeff Labrecque, adding: "But is it too far? And is 'The Walking Dead' getting a free pass because its explicit depictions of violence are framed within a zombiefied landscape?” “The Real World" Season 30 is going with a "Skeletons” format The Chicago-set "Real World: Skeletons" will feature "skeletons" from the housemates’ past, who move in to "drum up secrets and dark memories.” “Gossip Girl’s” Penn Badgley will romance Mary-Louise Parker on NBC’s “The Slap” He’ll play her much-younger boyfriend on the NBC miniseries about a slap gone wrong.
