Jamie Fraser: Clan leader?
Though fans of Starz’s Outlander likely would follow the Highlander Currently Known as MacTavish just about anywhere, members of his own family have different thoughts on the matter – as we’ll see in Saturday’s episode (9/8c).
The clan drama comes to a head at The Gathering, a regular event in which all of the MacKenzie men travel to Castle Leoch to pledge loyalty to Colum as head of the clan. (Look for Outlander author Diana Gabaldon »

With the industry in such flux, writers are also trying to navigate the best paths for their creative careers. Is broadcast in too much disarray to invest? Is cable the right fit for future development? Maybe TV needs to get its act together, and film is the place to hang out for a while? All showrunners are mulling these options, and more, as they think about what their personal futures hold.

You may be asking yourself why Jack suddenly becomes friends with a cop (Client List’s Brian Hallisay) after finding himself on the wrong side of the law last season. That’s easy: Jack is actually putting on a badge. However, despite his new position, »

EW has confirmed that Letscher will guest star in the season-seven premiere of Castle as Henry Jenkins, a security consultant. According to TVLine, which first reported the news, Jenkins will give Beckett information “on the most important case of her life.”
In other words, it’s probably a safe bet he’ll give her information regarding Castle’s whereabouts. As fans know, the first promo for season seven showed Beckett realizing that Castle was not in the burning car. And »

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?
While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.
Claire Danes (Angela Chase)
After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »
When we last left Claire, she was in the care of men who think entrapping would-be assassins and giving them access to your health care is a fine idea. It’s basically the world’s slowest game of Russian Roulette. I dub thee the Scottish Gambit! And now I keep thinking about if Marvel’s Gambit had an 18th-century Scottish twin and…I need a moment. …. Okay! Let’s see what shenanigans the gang is up to this week in “The Way Out.” ********************** We open on Platform 9¾ as Frank is about to ship Claire off to Hogwarts for another year. Wait, no. Frank is shipping Claire off the front lines and he is not happy about it. Not that it matters because what enemy could even shoot straight while looking at Mrs. Randall is her stunning army uniform? Seriously, when is military chic coming back into fashion, Ms. Wintour? But fashionable attire as armor aside, »

And from dodging Geillis Duncan's (Lotte Verbeek) nosey questions, fending off Dougal MacKenzie's (Graham McTavish) insults, and getting jealous over Jamie McTavish's (Sam Heughan) intimate moment with a young lady, Claire had her hands full as she experienced life in 1743.
Here's how things played out in "Outlander" Season 1, Episode 3 – "The Way Out":

You’ll have to excuse poor Claire in this week’s Outlander. After all, a desperate person will grasp on to any hope – no matter how slim, improbable and/or inspired by a folk song – if it means achieving a desired outcome. And Claire is as desperate as they get.
So to you and I, pegging all of one’s aspirations on the information contained in some bard’s pretty chorus doesn’t sound like a plan for success, but we also haven’t been thrown back in time, accused of sorcery and forced to use a chamber pot. All I’m saying is, »
This is really interesting. ABC is currently developing a new series based on the Derrick Storm mystery novels that were written by the fictional character Richard Castle, who is played by Nathan Fillion in the fantastic drama Castle.
I love this show, and it's really kind of meta that they are making a sort of spin-off series based on a fictional character that comes from a fictional book from a fictional author.
One thing that I didn't realize until recently was that those Derrick Storm novels that have been referenced on Castle have actually been published in real life under the name of Richard Castle. Those book are also on best-seller status! That is both really weird, yet cool. For those of you not familiar with Derrick Storm, he is a spy who gets called on by the CIA to help them with mysterious missions.

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Strain, Under the Dome, Switched at Birth and Rookie Blue!
1 | Girl Meets World got pretty heavy with the Maya/mom storyline, right? Even if it cribbed from BMW’s Sean story some? And is anyone else starting to worry about Riley’s wackiness? Young Cory wasn’t that looney, was he?

On television, spinoffs aren’t a new phenomenon. Police procedural heavy hitters like CSI and NCIS have managed to replicate their formulas many times over (to varying degrees of success). But outside of the procedural dramas, spinoffs have a harder time getting off the ground. The Supernatural spinoff Bloodlines didn’t last long on The CW, while CBS passed on How I Met Your Dad.
ABC is taking a less conventional approach with an upcoming series based on the comedy/drama procedural Castle, following fictional author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and NYPD detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic).
Variety reports ABC is in the early stages of developing a new show based on the ‘Derrick ...

Marvel has revealed the identity of that actor spotted on the set of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." the other week with the blue arm, and it turns out he's not playing a member of the Kree race.
Instead, he's actor Brian Patrick Wade ("Generation Kill," "Teen Wolf") and he'll be playing a different Marvel entity - Crusher Creel aka. The Absorbing Man. Creel has the ability to absorb the properties of anything he touches and will appear very early into the new season. [Source: Marvel.com]
Appearing at the annual Edinburgh TV Festival this week, BBC TV chief Danny Cohen said "I hope so" when asked if he could envisage seeing the first female version of The Doctor sometime in the near future once Peter Capaldi leaves the role.

As previously reported, TV Guide served up their latest Mega Buzz, spoiler chat session and dished out new spoiler scoopage for the upcoming "Castle" season 7. It turns out that they've added Devious Maid star, Rebecca Wisocky (left) to their payroll to come on and portray a new lead scientist lady, named Dr. Elena Sarkov to help crack a new pool shark murder case. In their spoiler chat spoiler report, they explained: "Devious Maids star Rebecca Wisocky will guest-star in the seventh season's third episode, "Clear & Present Danger." She will play Dr. Elena Sarkov, the lead scientist at a cutting-edge research lab, whom the team consults when a pool shark is murdered by a mysterious unseen force. Other details about her character are being tightly guarded, but it sounds to me like the show won't waste a lot of time getting back to its case-of-the-week structure. " Season 7 is due to premiere on Monday night, »
In what is possibly a first, ABC are developing a drama based on a drama written by a character in a drama. Castle starring Nathan Fillion has been a long-running success for the network, but the idea that fuelled its premise is now being utilized for new pilot Derrick Storm. CIA expendable-of-choice Storm was the creation of Fillion’s Richard Castle, an author who killed him off, resulting in the writers’ block that led to him shadowing the NYPD on cases over six seasons (a seventh is on the way).
Actual books were published such as A Raging Storm and, er, A Brewing Storm. Let’s hope this doesn’t become a Sh*t Storm when scribe Gregory Poirier fleshes out the derring-do into script form. MilMar Pictures (a fusion of Castle creator Andrew Marlowe and co-exec/wife Terri Edda Miller) will produce for ABC Studios. Though not described as »

Today, in ‘Sentences I Never Thought I’d Write,’ ABC is preparing to melt your brain. No, it’s not planning to stream episodes of Revenge directly into your cranium on an endless loop – rather, it is beginning development on a new drama that will be a spinoff from Castle – one of its most popular shows currently on air. But, this is not just your average spinoff, where the show expands to a different city while following the same worn-out format, like CSI. This is mind-bending branching-out, based on the fictional literary character of a series of fictional novels, written by the fictional lead character of Castle. This is a Derrick Storm show.
For those unfamiliar, allow me to unravel this intricately woven narrative web for you. Castle is the beloved police procedural drama featuring Nathan Fillion as best-selling mystery novelist, Richard Castle. When the show began in March 2009, Richard »

On ABC's hugely successful series "Castle," best-selling author Richard Castle (played by geek hero Nathan Fillion) pens a series of novels featuring a spy character named Derrick Storm. The uncannily synergistic ABC has, in turn, published a series of novels in real life, written by "Richard Castle" and featuring the Derrick Storm character. An army of "Castle" loyalists has turned these books, written by some very wealthy ghostwriters, into actual best-selling novels (all with titles involving the word "Storm"). And now those books are being turned into a television series, according to Variety.
Still with us?
This has got to me one of the more meta spin-offs (but not actually spin-offs) in the history of television, should the pilot (being written by Gregory Poirier and executive produced by "Castle" creator Andrew Marlowe and his production partner/wife Terri Edda Miller) go to series. Quite frankly, we're still trying to figure it out. »

This might get a little confusing: ABC is developing a drama based on a fictional character written by another fictional character from one of its shows.
Before Castle started working with Detective Beckett, he had penned several novels about CIA operative Derrick Storm that Hyperion Books has since published in real life, including A Brewing Storm, A Raging Storm and A Bloody Storm.
