The acclaimed director/producer has always had a knack for science-fiction, but when it comes to the supernatural ventures he produces for the small-screen, the results have been, well, underwhelming, to put it nicely.

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 »

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 »

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, »
