On tonight’s episode of The Blacklist (NBC, 10/9c), Red and the FBI try to stop the spread of a highly contagious virus — but might it be too late for Liz?
Judging by new photos from the upcoming hour, the task force’s latest case drives Liz to a hospital bed — and Mossad agent Samar Navabi isn’t looking so hot, either. (Something tells me the shady fella in the middle of the street has something to do with it.)
And when Red isn’t sitting by Liz’s bedside, it seems he’s bonding with a young boy (will »

Penguins are descending on Sunday’s installment of The Good Wife (9/8c on CBS) — and some of ‘em might be wearing top hats.

“You’re going to get a glimpse into some of the things that go through Elsbeth’s mind on her way to making her revelations — and maybe those will involve some penguins,” says the actress, who took home the 2013 Emmy »
Most people would be happy to have an angel watching over their shoulder.
Most people are not Constantine.
In this exclusive clip from NBC’s forthcoming supernatural drama, exorcist-and-all-around-spiritual-wrangler John Constantine (Matt Ryan, The Tudors) gets a visit from a heavenly host named Manny (Harold Perrineau, Lost).
But Constantine’s not happy to see the winged one, and he’s even less pleased to hear about Manny’s mission.

The Cougar Town creator is shepherding a pilot adaptation of the popular British comedy for NBC, our sister site Deadline reports, with Community‘s Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan on board to write and executive-produce with Lawrence. Additional EPs include Jeff Ingold and Craig Cegielski.
As its title suggests, The It Crowd follows the exploits of a British company’s information-technology department.
Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…
The writer and director took to Twitter following news that a second adaptation of the British sitcom is being produced by NBC.
The American network first attempted to make a version of the Channel 4 series back in 2007, but the pilot never made it to air.
Clips of the remake - which saw Richard Ayoade reprise his role as Moss, Joel McHale introduced as a stateside Roy and Jessica St Clair taking on the role of Jen - were later leaked online and received a poor reception from fans.
Linehan was not involved in the original adaptation, but confirmed he is working with NBC this time around.
Yep. I'm closely involved and we're going to get it right this time Rt @PaulFORegan: Any »
Before Chris O’Dowd was showing up in Judd Apatow movies and Richard Ayoade was being hailed as a fresh young voice in filmmaking, they were big in British TV as the hapless leads of The It Crowd. Big enough, in fact, that an American remake of the series was commissioned by NBC in 2007, with […]

Last year, NBC lost The Office and 30 Rock. It canceled Community, and sometime next year, we'll see the last of the Parks & Rec gang. The future has seemed bleak for NBC's once-lauded comedy content, so maybe that explains why it's digging through old projects to turn things around: Deadline reports that Cougar Town and Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence has signed on to produce an NBC adaptation of the popular British sitcom The It Crowd. NBC has been here before. It picked up an It Crowd pilot starring Joel McHale (and Richard Ayoade, from the original British version) in the 2006-2007 season, »

Now, the show is in development again. Community alumni Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan are working on the project with Warner Bros., and NBC are already keen on a pilot, we're told. Creator of the original Graham Linehan is said to be on executive producer duties alongside Donovan and Goldman.
It’s unclear whether Ayoade would still be up for reprising his role, but some links to the original would certainly give the remake some credibility. »
The It Crowd is getting a new Us remake from NBC.
Despite a failed pilot back in 2006, another attempt is being made at adapting beloved British sitcom "The It Crowd" for the United States.
Bill Lawrence ("Scrubs," "Spin City") along with "Community" executive producers Neil Goldman & Garrett Donovan are shepherding the new multi-camera series adaptation which Warner Bros. TV will produce.
The project has landed at NBC with a put pilot commitment. Funnily enough, NBC was the network behind the original failed attempt at a remake which starred Joel McHale and original series transplant Richard Ayoade.
Ayoade, Chris O'Dowd and Katherine Parkinson starred in the original series which ran from 2006-2010 and was wrapped up with a one-off special that aired in December last year. It won numerous awards for its sharp writing and performances.
The show followed two male geeks and their new female manager working in the It department of the London offices of the fictional Reynholm Industries. Further »

The annals of American networks are littered with failed attempts to remake British comedy series. For every Office, there is a Spaced or a Coupling. Us channel NBC has already tried to craft a take on Graham Linehan’s ace sitcom The It Crowd and failed. The company is trying again, making a deal with Scrubs producer Bill Lawrence.This is a tough one to figure out. One the one hand, we’re really not sure that anyone needs to make another It Crowd: it was a perfect sealed bubble of a show that helped boost the careers of stars Chris O’Dowd, Richard Ayoade and Katherine Parkinson. But then you have Lawrence, the man behind Spin City, Scrubs and more recently, Cougar Town and Ground Floor, who will be working with Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan, two former Scrubs writer/producers who went on to help Dan Harmon make Community. »
