NBC is likely to lose money with tonight’s debut of The Sound of Music Live!, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Instead, they’re hoping the production will do well enough to sell plenty of DVDs and soundtracks (cast recording?) and to be broadcast in the years to come at Christmas time.
Yesterday, Ryan Murphy tweeted:
All The Glee Originals received invites today to be in our 100th episode! More to follow.

The Hollywood Reporter says Kohan is prepping the drama with Lionsgate TV for HBO. She is writing the script with Bruce Miller and Tracy Miller, and Kohan and Bruce will both executive produce. Tracy will get a supervising producer credit.
The project is described as an untitled Salem period drama that "explores the circumstances around one of the most compelling chapters in American history where intolerance and repression set neighbor against neighbor and led a town to mass hysteria." If that sounds familiar, it's because it's not the only Salem drama in the works.
Wgn America also has a TV show called "Salem" that is set in 17th century Salem, Mass. It will also explore the witch trials, »
Orange Is the New Black and Weeds creator Jenji Kohan is developing a Salem witch period drama at HBO, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Kohan might not scream "period drama," but think of it this way: Even though both Oitnb and Weeds are very pop-infused and contemporary, they are also both about meeting and not meeting social norms, about women (and occasional men) who are cast out or vilified, and about the violence cultures are willing to tolerate in the name of maintaining peace. Plus, witches are very trendy right now: American Horror Story, Sleepy Hollow, Witches of East End, a Charmed reboot, The Originals and The Vampire Diaries, True Blood — we live in bewitching times, friends. »

Law & Order: Svu has scared up another gig for Pablo Schreiber.
“We are thrilled and terrified that Pablo Schreiber is coming back to Svu to reprise his role as psychopath William Lewis,” executive producers Warren Leight and Julie Martin tell TV Guide Magazine. “He’ll again be tormenting Det. Olivia Benson. Although he’s the one on trial, he turns it into hers.”
The Orange Is the New Black actor was last seen in the NBC procedural’s two-part season premiere, in which his sadistic alter ego abducted and tortured Benson until she turned the tables and nearly beat him to death. »

AMC is further padding its genre programming with two new series on the way: one called "Galyntine" and the other "Knifeman." No relation to the 60s folk group Galyntine and Knifeman. Garkfunkel wept. Read on for details.
From the Press Release:
“Galyntine” is a wholly-original vision rooted in a both fantasy/action adventure and science-fiction. The pilot takes place at a time after a cataclysmic technology-induced disaster has resulted in a new society that has eschewed any form of technology. This catastrophic event leaves small numbers of survivors scattered around the planet and forced to adapt to isolation and unique challenges. "Galyntine" will explore a post-apocalyptic world in which humanity has evolved – with some strange detours. Galyntine is a man’s journey of discovery through a changed world and its mysterious people.

With Breaking Bad finished and Mad Men almost wrapped up as well, AMC is looking for their next big original series. Today, they’ve announced pilot orders for two new genre projects that we’ll be keeping an eye on:
“These are both highly original and ambitious pilots that take us into worlds that we haven’t seen on TV before,” said Joel Stillerman, AMC’s executive vice president of programming, production and digital content. “The bawdiness and fun of Knifeman and London in the mid-18th century; and the completely unique take on a post-apocalyptic world in Galyntine are right in AMC’s wheelhouse of making television that is both unexpected and unconventional. They’re both driven by creative and production teams »

First AMC introduced The Walking Dead.
Then NBC launched the somewhat similar Revolution.
Now AMC is doing a new drama pilot that sounds … kinda like Revolution.
The cable network has ordered two new drama pilots, one of which is a post-apocalyptic tale after about society that eschews all forms of technology following a global disaster. The other is the tale of an 18th century surgeon. Check out the official descriptions of Knifeman and Galyntine below, both of which are in contentions for series orders for a 2015 debut:

To mark the release of The Heat on DVD and Blu-ray 25th November, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray.
The heat is on when uptight and ambitious FBI Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock – The Blind Side, Miss Congeniality) is sent to Boston to uncover the identity of an elusive drug lord, Mr. Larkin. Struggling to maintain the respect of her colleagues, Ashburn also finds herself pitted against foul-mouthed, anti-social Boston cop Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy – Identity Thief, Bridesmaids). With more balls then most men and a Subway in each pocket Mullins is determined to stay on the case at any cost even if it means working with ‘tattle tits’ Ashburn. In the most hysterical buddy movie of the year it really is a case of good cop / mad cop.
As well as the inspired pairing of comedy stalwart Bullock and break-out comedian McCarthy, The Heat also »
