The two met while both working on Nickelodeon’s Victorious back in 2010. “We kind of built a friendship there, and then I came on when she first started her first album (Yours Truly),” Pilla tells us.

Transitioning from child star to multi-hyphenate is never an easy feat—and Victoria Justice is all too aware. The 21-year-old beauty, who shot to stardom thanks to her roles in Nickelodeon shows such as Victorious and Zooey 101, is currently making a big career leap with her new MTV series, Eye Candy, in which she plays a computer genius who goes on the hunt for a serial killer. "I think the fans have been reacting really great to this transition," Justice told E! News when she stopped by the studio on Wednesday (be sure to check out the full interview tonight!).

Fox is assembling a remarkably high-profile cast for its upcoming Ryan Murphy anthology series Scream Queens. In addition to previously-cast series leads Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis, the comedy-horror series will star Lea Michele (Fox’s Glee), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland), Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee) and Joe Manganiello (HBO’s True Blood). Meanwhile, Victorious co-star and breakout chanteuse Ariana Grande has landed a recurring role.
Whether all those actors will be singing as well as acting is unclear, but it’s a sure thing that Michele, Palmer and Grande will belt out at least a few numbers. Breslin is a likely candidate for a singing role, too, seeing as she showcased her vocal abilities in the little-seen drama Janie Jones back in 2010 and has also been an occasional member of dream-pop band Stargroves.
The stacked cast is less surprising when you consider the show’s pedigree. »

Even though Glee will come to an end this March, the partnership between series star Lea Michele and co-creator Ryan Murphy will continue beyond the series’ conclusion. Over the weekend at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, it was announced that Murphy’s newest series, Scream Queens, has added Michele, along with Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland), Keke Palmer (Masters of Sex, 90210), and pop star/Victorious alum Ariana Grande, to its cast. Michele, Manganiello, Breslin, and Palmer will all be series regulars on Scream Queens. Grande, meanwhile, has signed on for a recurring role on the freshman series. The five actors join a cast that already includes American Horror Story alum Emma Roberts and an original “scream queen” herself, Jamie Lee Curtis. Similar to Murphy’s American Horror Story or FX’s other popular drama, Fargo, Scream Queens is expected to be an anthology series, »

Denis Leary delivered his usual rowdy session on Sunday in introducing his new FX comedy, “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll,” at Sunday’s Television Critics Assn. press tour.
Despite Leary’s salty language and blunt banter (for instance, jabbing PBS for having two days at TCA), the comedian focused the crowd’s attention on the breakout potential of the actress who plays his daughter, Elizabeth Gillies.
Gillies is best known for her starring role on Nickelodeon’s “Victorious,” which means “Sex&Drugs” marks her graduation to adult roles.
“I had to have a girl who could really sing rock ‘n’ roll, and would be willing to sing live on set because I wanted the vocals to be recorded live,” Leary said, adding that his cast of musicians had to be sexy, dramatic, comedic and have the ability to improvise. “I really wanted to capture the vocals live.

Listen up, Glee fans!
The co-ceo's of Fox Television Group, Dana Walden and Gary Newman, took the stage at the TCA Winter Press Tour on Saturday morning, and they revealed that Glee fans have a lot to look forward to this fall.
Although the musical hit is in their sixth and final season, many fans — and Fox chairmen — are sad to see the series go, but we think they have come up with a great solution: After stating that Fox practically "begged" Ryan Murphy to stay with the network, Newman revealed that there are some familiar McKinley faces headed to Murphy's newest upcoming series, Scream Queens.

MTV is taking fans in an interesting new direction with their latest scripted thriller series, Eye Candy, which premiered tonight on the formerly music oriented network. In one word, the pilot can simply be described as disturbing. Eye Candy is essentially The Following for a younger demographic, but it’s too early to tell if that’s a good thing or not.
Eye Candy centers around a young, genius hacker named Lindy, played by Victoria Justice, former star of Nickelodeon’s hit teen show Victorious. By the end of the first episode, she is both the hunter and hunted as she continues to search for any clues that might lead to finding out what happened to her sister.
In the beginning of the episode, Lindy watches helplessly as her sister is kidnapped right in front of her. Three years later, a 21-year old version of the character we were briefly »

[Brightcove "3985836747001" "" "" "auto"] From the brightly colored, sunshiny Hollywood seen in Nickelodeon's Victorious to the gritty, dimly lit streets of New York in her new show Eye Candy, Victoria Justice has made a huge career leap. In MTV's new hour-long drama, Justice portrays Lindy, a 21-year-old tech genius with a keen distrust of the police force who let her sister's kidnapping go unsolved years before we meet her in the pilot.

Among the burdens of shows associated with MTV is a need to feel youthful and occasionally on the cutting edge. The drama “Eye Candy” falls well short of those marching orders, casting Victoria Justice as a young hacker trying to find her missing sister, and simultaneously hunted by a sadistic predator. Basically, it’s Nancy Drew meets “Stalker” (nearly rivaling that CBS show in terms of grisly killings), and winds up being most notable for Justice graduating from Nickelodeon roles (“Zoey 101,” “Victorious”) to its Viacom sibling. Assuming the studio advocates cradle-to-grave employment, at least she can count on a TV Land gig in her district-attorney years.
Adapted from R.L. Stine’s bestselling novel into a 10-episode series, “Eye Candy” begins on a grim note, as Justice’s Lindy watches her younger sister get snatched right in front of her. Three years later, she’s 21 and still seeking clues, while »
