You wouldn’t think a show like “Supernatural” would have anything in common with “Grey’s Anatomy” or “Weeds”. After all, they’re wildly different genres on different networks. Each of these shows did do one thing the same. Every single one of them killed a character played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
He’s the dad they love to kill, or, at least that’s what happened to both John Winchester and Judah Botwin. Even as a single guy with a thing for Scrabble, he didn’t fare so well, just ask Denny Duquette. Oh, wait. You can’t. They killed him, too. He became, for all intents and purposes, the best and most memorable Red Shirt on TV.

TVLine has learned exclusively that onetime ER doc Leland Orser is joining the Showtime drama’s upcoming third season in the recurring role of Father Romero, a cleric who is investigating the homicide of the predatory priest that Ray shot in the head in Season 1’s penultimate episode (an execution that was barely touched on in Season 2).
After good but slightly formulaic procedurals became Syfy’s norm over the past couple of years, the network is doing its best to make a push back into serialized, science fiction storytelling with shows more similar in scope to the network’s most beloved (and critically acclaimed) series of all-time, Battlestar Galactica. One of the most highly anticipated of these new series is The Expanse, which does not yet have an official premiere date but is slated to hit Syfy this year, and the network has just released first trailer for the show. Set 200 years in the future, after mankind has colonized the solar system, the 10-episode thriller follows a hardened detective (Thomas Jane, Hung) and a rogue ship’s captain (Steven Strait, Magic City) as their investigation into a missing young woman evolves into a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.

On Thursday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, Syfy premiered a sizzle reel for The Expanse, which network president Dave Howe touted as the cabler’s “most ambitious series to date.”
Set 200 years in the future, after mankind has colonized the solar system, the 10-episode thriller follows a hardened detective (Thomas Jane, Hung) and a rogue ship’s captain (Steven Strait, Magic City) as their investigation into a missing young woman evolves into a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.
The black comedy is set in New Orleans and Willis will play Jack Delaney, an ex-con struggling to stay on the straight path working in his brother's funeral home. He soon meets a gorgeous lapsed nun freshly returned from Nicaragua who wants his help to smuggle out a beautiful young woman with leprosy.
Said woman has an ex-lover who is a mad Somoza-esque colonel who wants to kill her for possibly infecting him. He is also fleecing rich Americans to help fund the contras. As a result, Delaney sets out with the ex-nun and an ex-cop to stop the colonel and get away with his fortune.
