Meaghan Rath first came to our attention as ghost-girl Sally Malik on Syfy’s Being Human, but we’ve since gotten to see her on Secrets and Lies, Banshee, and most recently as Coach’s love interest, May, on New Girl. Rath’s star is on the rapid rise — earlier this month at the upfronts, she was cast in two TV pilots: The Guide to Surviving Life and NBC’s People Are Talking (though it looks like NBC will have to recast her role). We caught her for a few minutes to talk about pilot season, what’s next for Coach and May, and the perils of doing your own stunts. Were you a New Girl fan before you were cast on the show?I was! I had seen a few episodes and thought it was really funny, and then after I was cast, I watched the most recent season »

Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs, Fox Television Group, today unveiled the Fox primetime slate for the 2015-2016 television season to the national advertising community during its annual Programming Presentation at the Beacon Theatre. Here's what the CEO's had to say in a joint statement.
"Building on the phenomenal momentum created by Gotham, The Last Man on Earth and, of course, Empire, we're infusing next season's schedule with new ambitious dramas, smart comedies, aspirational unscripted series and big live events and specials - all from the best creators in the business. And our strategy with these bold creative swings is simple: schedule them strategically, market them relentlessly and create events that break through and captivate viewers across every platform."
Tuesdays are all-new this fall on Fox, with new comedies Grandfathered and The Grinder, followed by killer comedy-horror series Scream Queens. The new comedies kicking off an all-new Tuesday are Grandfathered and The Grinder. »
The joys of piecemeal pre-upfronts pilot ordering! One hour after announcing pickups for the comedy "The Grinder" and the drama "Rosewood," Fox added a pair of comedies to its 2015-2016 slate. Earning series orders for Fox are "Grandfathered," starring John Stamos, and the ensemble "The Guide to Surviving Life." While specifics on scheduling won't be revealed until Fox announces its whole schedule on Monday (May 11) morning, the network notes that the "Guide to Surviving Life" order is for six episode. Both comedies are single-cams. Let's get to the details... "Grandfathered" is John Stamos' return to primetime -- Sorry, "Fuller House" -- and comes from ABC Studios and 20th Century Fox TV. Stamos plays a bachelor whose life changes rather dramatically when he discovers that he's a father and a grandfather at the same time. The pilot was written by Danny Chun and directed by Chris Koch. Stamos will serve »

If the departure of How I Met Your Mother left you with a yearning for shows that are half single-cam, half multi-cam, NBC just picked up the show for you: People Are Talking, which is not a Harry Nilsson biopic, but instead a half-hour sitcom that follows two "wildly outspoken" couples who have long conversations about "sex and race, [and] the fact that the trusted new babysitter might just be a porn star." Those couples will be made up of Frankin & Bash's Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Being Human's Meaghan Rath, Whitney's Tone Bell, and Grey's Anatomy's Bresha Webb; Himym vet Pam Fryman is directing the pilot. Will there be flashbacks? »

Mark-Paul Gosselaar is headed back to NBC. The network has given a series order to the actor’s new comedy People Are Talking. People Are Talking‘s pilot was written by DJ Nash (Growing Up Fisher), who will also serve as an executive producer on the series along with Ride Along producer Will Packer and the pilot’s director Pam Fryman (How I Met Your Mother). The series is an “unabashed” new comedy about two diverse couples who are both neighbors and best friends. As they go through life side-by-side, they can’t help but analyze and obsess about everything. From topics like sex and race, to the fact that the trusted new babysitter might just be a porn star, nothing is out of bounds for this wildly outspoken foursome. In addition to Gosselaar, whose last major TV gig was the TNT law series Franklin & Bash, People Are Talking‘s »

On the heels of ordering three new dramas for the 2015-16 TV season, NBC has given a green light to three new sitcoms: The Mark-Paul Gosselaar-fronted People Are Talking, the America Ferrera workplace comedy Superstore and the Patrick Warburton-Carrie Preston family satire Crowded.

Here's the press release:
Amazon Greenlights Second Season of Its Hour-Long Original Drama Series "Bosch"
Series breaks records with the biggest debut weekend of all Amazon Original Series and is the top-watched title on Prime Instant Video, across movies and TV series in its first four weeks
Based on Michael Connelly's best-selling books with nearly 50 million copies sold, Bosch will return with stars Titus Welliver (Lost, The Good Wife), Jamie Hector (The Wire), Amy Aquino (Being Human), Lance Reddick (Fringe, The Wire) and Sarah Clarke (24), and will be Executive Produced by Connelly, Eric Overmyer (The Wire, Treme), Henrik Bastin of Fabrik Entertainment (The Killing, Odyssey), a Red Arrow Entertainment Group company, and Pieter Jan Brugge »
Not only has Bosch, Amazon‘s original drama series, performed well for the service, it’s managed high praise from viewers and critics. Amazon has now announced a second season, and even a bit of a plot synopsis for that season.
If you aren’t already on board with the stylish, intense series based on Michael Connelly’s books, you now have even more incentive, as you know there’s more on the way.
This is actually a bigger announcement than it might seem, because new seasons are still a guessing game for streaming services, which don’t have a history for viewers to fall back on when it comes to being able to figure out if a favorite is worth investing in. I know a lot of people weren’t sure about jumping into Alpha House at first, for just that reason.
At any rate, you have more to look forward to, »

2.14 I Love You, Goodbye
Shows in this universe tend to concoct more and more ridiculous ways to get all of their characters into the same space with each other, whether it’s the weird Founders Balls of The Vampire Diaries or random street parties of The Originals, but in this week’s episode there was the most legitimate reason of all – a wedding that just happened to also unite all of the vampires, werewolves and hybrids of New Orleans into one super-pack.
And the wedding actually came off with nary a hitch – unheard of in television-land – and I Love You, Goodbye was probably the most shamelessly romantic hour this show has ever produced. At every turn, the audience were expecting things to kick off, rivalries to surface and blood to be spilled, »

After being attached for over a year and having had to turn down projects in that time, it is unsurprising that Luke Evans ultimately had to bail on "The Crow" reboot last month due to his busy schedule.
Of course, his departure has led to the inevitable question about who may be hired to replace him. No actor has yet been selected, but the comic's creator James O'Barr made an appearance at Wizard World Madison over the weekend and came up with one suggestion.
According to Blastr, O'Barr has reportedly been in contact with former "Smallville" and "Being Human" actor Sam Witwer for some time about the role and believes the actor has "the look and ability" to portray Eric Draven. However O'Barr still needs to convince director Corin Hardy of the choice:

The long-awaited reboot of The Crow hit another stumbling block last month, when actor Luke Evans backed out of the lead role as Eric Draven, due to his busy schedule.

In March, A&E will take viewers to two different small towns. In the first one, a motel offers a night of rest for some and eternal sleep for others, while in the second, those thought to be dead come back to their loved ones very much alive. We’re a couple of months away from the premieres of Bates Motel and The Returned, but newly released teaser videos offer a look at the creepy onscreen stories to come.
The 10-episode third season of Bates Motel will debut on A&E on March 9th, 2015.
