Downton Abbey Creator Julian Fellowes To Create New Period Drama, The Gilded Age, for NBC

27 November 2012 12:29 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Looking to class up their schedule, it seems that NBC has ordered a new series from Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes.  Since the formerly ignored Edwardian period has found a TV and filmic renaissance of late, (which Downton Abbey has been largely responsible for), the new series will move back in time slightly to the vastly more chronicled Victorian Era, specifically the American Gilded Age. The series, called -- wait for it -- The Gilded Age, will center around the wealthy titans of industry in 1880s New York.  For more on the series and what Fellowes has said about that historical era, hit the jump. According to TV Line, Fellowes says of the 1880s in America, "This was a vivid time, with dizzying, brilliant ascents and calamitous falls, of record-breaking ostentation and savage rivalry; a time when money was king." As TV Line points out, the news of this series' »

Scoop: NBC Orders Period Drama From Downton Abbey Creator Julian Fellowes

27 November 2012 10:45 AM, PST | | See recent news »

America is getting its very own Downton Abbey!

NBC is developing The Gilded Age, a period drama centered on the millionaire titans of 1880s New York written and produced by Abbey creator Julian Fellowes.

“This was a vivid time,” said Fellowes, “with dizzying, brilliant ascents and calamitous falls, of record-breaking ostentation and savage rivalry; a time when money was king.”

News of the project, which NBC describes as “an epic tale of the princes of the American Renaissance, and the vast fortunes they made – and spent,” comes just months after ABC passed on Shonda Rhimes’ similarly-themed drama pilot Gilded Lilys. »

The AfterElton Interview: John Barrowman

1 October 2012 10:13 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

John Barrowman is everywhere these days. And that's not a bad thing at all!

One thing that goes through your head when you’re sitting down to chat with John Barrowman: “Captain Jack is even better looking in person.” You also can’t help but notice that this is a guy who is not only extremely comfortable in his own skin but also likes to have a good time by laughing and making those around him laugh.

Case in point, his recent stint guest-hosting Attack of the Show, the weekday show on G4 that explores and makes fun of everything on the web. Whether he was doing a Tom Cruise/Risky Business spoof sans pants or hyping AfterElton’s Ultimate Slash Madness Tourney, Barrowman was relaxed, fun with just the precise amount of snark. No wonder then that the in-demand actor/singer/author has a slew of projects in »

Matt Long to Play Doctor on Private Practice

7 September 2012 7:03 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

For the role of a new doctor at St. Ambrose hospital, Private Practice is going long. Matt Long, that is!

The actor (The Deep End, Jack & Bobby, Mad Men) will scrub in for multiple episode of the ABC drama this fall, TV Guide confirms, only revealing the character's profession and leaving viewers to wonder whether he'll be a love interest for an employee of Seaside Wellness.

Long had previously booked a role on the Shonda Rhimes pilot Gilded Lilys, a period piece that failed to earn a pickup on ABC this season.

Private Practice Season 6, meanwhile, will premiere on September 25. It's unclear when Long will make his debut. »

'Torchwood' star John Barrowman joins CW's 'Arrow' -- Exclusive

15 August 2012 9:59 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Captain Jack is coming to The CW!

John Barrowman is joining the network’s new fall action-drama Arrow.

The Doctor Who and Torchwood star has signed for a recurring role in Arrow’s debut season. Producers are not saying much about his character, only revealing that he will play a “well-dressed man” who is “as mysterious as he is wealthy … he is an acquaintance of the Queen family and a prominent figure in Starling City.”

Hmmm … one suspects the character is from the Green Arrow comic mythology. Philanthropist Stanley Dover Sr., perhaps? Unless they’re doing a new twist on Brick or the Green Lantern… »

Parenthood: Matt Lauria Set for Season 4

Parenthood: Matt Lauria Set for Season 4

TVLine is reporting that Matt Lauria (Friday Night Lights) will be reuniting with Jason Katims, as the actor has signed on for a recurring role in the upcoming fourth season of Parenthood. Lauria will reportedly play a soldier returning from Afghanistan that bonds with Zeek, a veteran as well. There's no word (yet) on when he'll make his first appearance on the 15-episode season, however.

The Braverman family patriarch may not get his own storylines that frequently, tending to average about one per season, and very rarely do we get a chance to delve in his past. The road trip episode last season may have made progress in filling out Zeek Braverman, but the man tends to be very closed-off about himself, getting involved in the lives of others to deflect attention. Maybe having someone there that understands where he's been and what »

ABC: Learn the Fates of Missing, Pan Am, The River, Private Practice, Body of Proof, Apt. 23

What a day for ABC, right?

They've issued countless renewals, cancellations, and pilot pickups, but it all had to come to an end. Like NBC, ABC put off the bad news for later in the day, cancelling a chunk of its freshman shows in one swoop. Having already dispatched Gcb, ABC has given the walking papers to Missing, Pan Am, and The River, according to TV Line. None are especially surprising considering the low ratings and middling-at-best hype for each of the three, with only Missing still airing new episodes. Pan Am finished its abbreviated run in February, while The River ran through its eight episodes in February and March.

Private Practice, meanwhile, has been given a final season order of 13 episodes. Producers of the medical drama, which moved from its post-Grey's Anatomy slot earlier this season, »

It’s not easy being Addison Montgomery — as Private Practice‘s Season 5 finale will again remind us, as the good doc/new mom faces a difficult choice. But will there even be a Season 6 for her to account for whatever decision she makes?

As previously revealed about the season finale “Gone, Baby, Gone” (yes, that was the title of Grey’s Anatomy‘s most recent season premiere), Amelia goes into labor, leading her doctor pals to her side as she faces the hardest decision of her life. Elsewhere, life-changing trouble for Pete prompts him and Violet to realize what they mean to one another, »

ABC Eyes 13-Episode Final Season Of ‘Private Practice’

30 April 2012 5:34 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

I hear that ABC is in talks to pick up Private Practice for a 13-episode sixth and final season. I hear a final renewal decision on the bubble series has not been made yet but the series’ chances have been helped by its strong ratings performance last week. In its second airing in its new Tuesday 10 Pm slot, the Grey’s Anatomy spinoff posted a 2.2/6 in adults 18-49, up 29% from its modest premiere on the night the week before, to log its most-watched telecast in more than a year and a half and its best 18-49 result in more than two months. While sources don’t completely rule out an 18-episode or even 22-episode pickup, I hear the conversation has focused on a 13-epsiode order and that star Kate Walsh, whose current deal is coming up, has committed to  13 more episodes. If Private Practice is renewed, creator Shonda Rhimes could »

ABC: Save Which Show?

16 April 2012 9:01 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We're getting down to it across the dial: Upfront week (May 14-17), where the fates of numerous shows are announced by various networks.

We've already covered which CW programs are on the bubble. Now, it's time to pay attention and let your voice be heard, ABC viewers. Especially if one of your favorite series is on the following list.

The network is in the middle of production on a number of promising pilots, from Marc Cherry's Desperate Housewives follow-up (Devious Maids) to Terry O'Quinn's return to primetime (666 Park Avenue) to another Shonda Rhimes drama (Gilded Lilys) that, ironically, may bump a current Shonda Rhimes drama from the lineup.

If picked up, which shows will these replace? Some in the poll below may be in more danger (The River, Pan Am) than others (Private Practice), but none has been renewed yet, meaning all are in danger.

The leading men (in contention) for fall 2012 are....

13 March 2012 12:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

This season, we had Eddie Cibrian (The Playboy Club), Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova), Hank Azaria (Free Agents), Kevin Dillon (How to Be a Gentleman), Mather Zickel (Man Up!), and Amaury Nolasco (Work It).

It didn’t work out too well for those guys, did it?

Fortunately, the failures of yesterday don’t seem to be quashing hopes for the (potential) successes of tomorrow. An excellent crop of new (and familiar) male stars are hoping to follow in the footsteps of Jim Caviezel (who’s truly nailed it on Person of Interest this season) and Henry Czerny (the very underappreciated »

***Spoilers*** ‘Doctor Who’ begins filming season 7

12 March 2012 2:38 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Rumors are not only a Fleetwood Mac album, but it’s also what has over taken Doctor Who for the last few years. With the revived series never more popular outside its native UK and rogue PBS stations, fans are eager for any news about the upcoming 7th season.

Production has begun, with work on episode 2 and 3 proceeding at a good pace, even though Matt Smith has said they’ll film through December. Little is known about the structure of this season, though anyone can probably infer a few things that have become public information. What is known is that there will be 14 episodes, but they’re probably going to be split over 2012-13 TV season. Speculation is the show will return in mid-November and air the final 4 episodes that involve Amy and Rory, and then air the fifth episode, the traditional Christmas Special on, well Christmas. After that, what »

'Nashville,' 'Gilded Lilys' and more ABC pilots we're looking forward to for 2012-13

11 March 2012 6:51 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

In about two months, the networks will start revealing their programming lineups for the 2012-13 season. But Zap2it would like to give you a head start about which ones have caught our eyes. Plus, there are so many pilots and actors filling up roles being announced that we would also like to hopefully simplify things for you.

The (enormous) caveat is, of course, that we haven't seen these pilots because most of them haven't finished (or even started) filming yet. But here are the pilots from ABC that we think look promising.


"666 Park Avenue": This one-hour spookfest is about a young couple (Dave Annable and Rachael Taylor) who has come to manage one of the most historical apartment buildings in New York City. But all is not what it seems, as supernatural goings-on complicate things. We like scary and the addition of Terry O'Quinn and Vanessa Williams »

‘Torchwood’ Star Joins Shonda Rhimes’ ABC Pilot; Future Miniseries In Jeopardy?

9 March 2012 1:34 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

John Barrowman may be heading back to television – but potentially not in the way fans hoped. Barrowman has been cast in a new ABC drama from Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes called Gilded Lilys – creating questions about the fate of Torchwood.

Barrowman, who is best-known for his role of rogue Time Agent Captain Jack Harkness, will play Julius Ashford Lily, the charming favored son of the Lily family. According to writer K.J. Steinberg (Gossip Girl), the series is an epic love story set in 1895, and will revolve around the Lily Family and the opening of the first luxury hotel in New York City. The Lilys have reigned over New York’s elite for decades, but in the wake of a recent family scandal, their fortunes have shifted, both financially and socially.

Grey’s Anatomy Boss Tabs Torchwood Captain for Gilded Lilys

8 March 2012 5:32 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Shonda Rhimes’ (showrunner for Grey’s Anatomy) upcoming period drama pilot Gilded Lilys has found a fantastically good-looking leading man for the ladies to swoon over. Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to announce Gilded Lilys will play host to the marvelous talents of Captain Jack! No, not Jack Sparrow. I mean the one, the only, the immortal Jack Harkness of Doctor Who and Torchwood fame.

John Barrowman has made a name for himself playing the “I’ll have sex with anything that moves” type that is Captain Jack, and will continue to play to that strength in Gilded Lilys. He plays Julius Ashford Lily, the golden boy of the wealthy Lily family. He’s his mother’s favorite, and the women don’t mind him too much neither. Like any handsome man of means, Julius is charming when he needs to be and has no problem getting in bed with any woman he desires. »

The big news is that John Barrowman is set to star in ABC's Gilded Lilys pilot (which will drive spell check crazy if it gets picked up). It's an upstairs-downstairs style drama about the wealthy Lily family opening New York's first luxury hotel in 1895. Barrowman will play Julius Ashford Lily, the eldest, favored son, charming lucky and loose. Barrowman in a period piece? Opposite Blythe Danner? Sign me up!

Project X's nerdy Jonathan Brown had a prior turn in front of the camera before his found footage hit. He had sex with three girls in a Bang Bros porn film called Nerd Hunting. Not a bad gig for a teenager.

Speaking of pasts in porn, Million Dollar Listing's Fredrik Eklund explains that he did a turn in gay porn just because he needed to do something different after founding a successful internet company. Does this mean a porn past is officially Nbd? »
