The proposed Major Crimes spinoff centered around the S.O.B. (Special Operations Bureau) tactical unit and starring Jon Tenney and Walking Dead alum Laurie Holden (who has since joined NBC’s Chicago Med) is not moving forward, Turner Entertainment Networks CEO Kevin Reilly tells TVLine.
While lauding Major Crimes — which is itself of course an offshoot of the Kyra Sedgwick-fronted The Closer — as “such a valuable show for us,” Reilly said of S.O.B., “We’re not doing that. We’ve moved on. »

"Do you feel the power of the Gladiators? Can you face the challenge of the champions? Do you have the courage of the heroes?
"Do you have the will or the skill? Do you have the strength, the speed the heart to be a winner? Deep down in your Soul?"
These were the fundamental questions posed by ITV's original Gladiators, to both the audience and brave contenders who dared to take part. While this particular writer longed to be Lightning (her backflips were to die for), all the seemingly superhuman powerhouses were forces to reckon with - only occasionally tamed by strict referee John Anderson.

Sting’s “The Last Ship” and Jason Robert Brown’s “Honeymoon in Vegas” were both sabotaged by inferior books, and despite good scores could not survive this season on Broadway. “It Shoulda Been You,” which opened Tuesday at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York, suffers the reverse problem — terrific book, numbingly bland music — which in the crazy world of musical theater does not Ko its chances for success. Who knows? “Shoulda” could turn into the surprise hit of the 2014-15 season. Brian Hargrove’s witty, twist-filled book about a mixed-up wedding party serves as the playground for a superb ensemble. »

On June 21st, TNT’s action-packed summer drama, The Last Ship, returns for a second season. The series follows a group of survivors aboard the Us Navy vessel, the USS Nathan James, after a deadly virus wipes out a huge percentage of the human population.
