Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, said he hopes the net’s summer slate points to the quality, variety and stability of the network’s programming.
“It’s a wonderful mix of old and new partners we’re working with … people known for making quality television,” Wright told Variety. “This really helps us burnish the brand.”
The diverse summer slate underscores the evolution of that brand, which not too long ago was driven almost entirely by crime shows like “The Closer.”
“We love our crime dramas, but we’re now programming in several genres… »

With talk of resurrections, out-of-body experiences, and hauntings, TNT's "Proof" pilot has piqued our interest so we're continuing to keep an eye on it. Up today is some more casting news in the form of Terminator 2: Judgment Day's Joe Morton.
As we already knew, TNT's Kyra Sedgwick-produced "Proof" will star Jennifer Beals as Dr. Kathryn Russo, a skeptical, hard-science, brilliant female surgeon with a caustic edge who has been struggling with the devastating loss of her teenage son and a growing estrangement from her surviving daughter.
Dr. Russo is persuaded to investigate cases of reincarnation, out-of-body experiences, hauntings — all of it looking for verifiable proof to answer one of life’s greatest questions: Is death truly the end, or is there something else beyond?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, J.K. Simmons (“The Closer,” “Spider-Man”) is in negotiations to join the cast of Terminator: Genesis, the reboot of the sci-fi action franchise being made by Skydance and Paramount.
Alan Taylor will direct the film which stars Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke as John Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator, whether he is good or bad remains to be seen.
Simmons will play a weary and alcoholic detective who has followed a bizarre case involving Sarah Connor and robots for more than three decades since 1984.
The remake will thread together multiple ideas from the previous movies as it relaunches the story of a cyborg from a future where computers gained intelligence and waged war against mankind.
Filming is slated to begin this spring.

Sitcoms so often fall into that chasm between sweet and treacle. Clueless dads, overwhelmed moms and precocious kids tumble in, and no amount of mugging rescues them.
NBC's "Growing Up Fisher" deftly veers from the treacle yet is unabashedly sweet. Previewing Sunday, Feb. 23, after the Closing Ceremony of the Xxii Winter Olympics, it then settles into the Tuesday schedule on Feb. 25.
"Growing Up Fisher" is the story of the love a son has for his dad. Jason Bateman narrates, and it's told from 11-year-old Henry's (Eli Baker) perspective of having a great dad, Mel (J.K. Simmons), who never met an obstacle he couldn't overcome.
"Do you have any idea how hard it is having a father who's a blind lawyer?" creator DJ Nash, who based this on his dad, tells Zap2it. "I couldn't complain about anything. You know, like, 'Dad, I'm having trouble with my book report.' [And his response would be] 'I went to law school blind. »
"Growing Up Fisher" isn't exactly what you would call "edgy" comedy. When the plot doesn't get any crazier than a blind guy taking a chainsaw to a tree, it's hard to say that a show provides biting social commentary and meta humor.
But that's Ok. Sometimes it's nice to have a fun, well-acted, pleasant sitcom both about and for the family.
Based on the real-life story of show creator DJ Nash, "Growing Up Fisher" focuses on a slightly quirky family. Leading the oddness is J.K. Simmons ("The Closer") as Mel Fisher, a highly successful lawyer who is blind but refuses to let that be a factor in his life. Seriously, the guy doesn't tell clients he can't see and occasionally drives a car. At the beginning of the show, Mel and his wife Joyce (Jenna Elfman, "Dharma and Greg") get a divorce, essentially so they can each find themselves.
For Joyce, »

6.14 Dressed To Kill
This week’s episode was full of surprises, most of them lovely.
The mystery at the centre of the episode took advantage of the success of The Devil Wears Prada to bring us into the fashion world. Because many of us had seen the movie, the writers were able to spare us the explanation of why fashion matters (at least enough to take all the characters but Yumi seriously), and more importantly, they were able to use the aide-leaving-her-apartment-at-the-crack-of-dawn-to-get-her-boss-her-nitpicky-breakfast to communicate a great deal about not only the kind of woman Matilda King is, but to instantly illustrate precisely what the relationship to her subordinates was like—even to the point of making the terrified receptionist seem a touch redundant.
Sosie Bacon, daughter of famed actor Kevin Bacon, was chosen to be Miss Golden Globe and honored recently at a luncheon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Sosie Bacon made her debut as Miss Golden Globe at the 2014 Golden Globes. Sosie is the daughter of The Following star Kevin Bacon and The Closer's Kyra Sedgwick. Bacon and Sedgwick introduced their daughter on stage, but were quickly interrupted by host Tina Fey. Fey, in the name of gender equality, introduced her "adult son from a previous relationship," Randy as Mister Golden Globe. Randy, played by Amy Poehler, was not very happy to be sharing the spotlight with 21-year-old Sosie. The surly Randy, complete with a very early Justin Bieber swooping hairstyle, asked Sosie if she was the Olympics and demanded to know who his father was. Fey revealed he was somebody in the room, but not Idris Elba as Randy »
The couple's daughter -- Sosie Bacon, who acted with her mother several times during the TNT run of "The Closer" -- will help hand out the honors as Miss Golden Globes 2014 when NBC televises the 71st annual event Sunday, Jan. 12. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler return as hosts for the second consecutive year (and there will be a third, since they're already booked for 2015).
"It's super-fun," Bacon tells Zap2it of her Golden Globes role that also involved her in last month's announcement of the nominations for television and movies. "I got a call from my managers, and they told me my name was in the mix, then I had an interview with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association ... then shortly after that, I found out I'd gotten it.

Admit it, if you're watching the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony this Sunday on NBC, you're watching it for the entertainment value. After all, the predictive value of the Globes, both on the Oscars and on next fall's Emmys, is overrated. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the group of a few dozen journalists that hands out the Globes, announces its movie winners a few days after the Academy voters mail in their nominating ballots, while their TV picks will long be forgotten by the time Emmy voters make their selections six or seven months from now. Besides, Globe voters have been known, on occasion, to pick their honorees more for their appeal to the stargazers at home than for, you know, merit.
But they do throw a hell of a party, and they do bring TV and film stars together for a rare night of both red-carpet glamour and tipsy revelry. »
