First look image at BBC America's 'Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell'

BBC America released a first look image for Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, a seven-part original drama series based on the bestselling novel by British author Susanna Clarke, premiering in 2015. The series, set in a reimagined 19th century England, was adapted to the screen by Peter Harness (Wallander, Is Anybody There?) and directed by Toby Haynes (Dr. Who). It stars Eddie Marsan (Ray DonovanThe World’s End) as Jonathan Strange and Bertie Carvel (Les MisérablesMatilda) as Mr Norrell.

The Hugo Award-winning novel, named Time‘s Novel of the Year when it was published in 2004, offers a fantastical alternate history of England during the Napoleonic wars—one in which practical magic, revered but thought to have died out, is brought back by the titular pair. Jonathan Strange contains elements of Romance and Gothic literature, as well as fantasy and historical fiction. BBC America sets up the plot for us in the press release:

“The reclusive Mr Norrell (Marsan) of Hurtfew Abbey stuns the city of York when he causes the statues of York Cathedral to speak and move. With a little persuasion and help from his man of business Childermass (Enzo Cilenti), he goes to London to help the government in the war against Napoleon. It is there Norrell summons a fairy ([Marc] Warren) to bring Lady Pole ([Alice] Englert) back from the dead, opening a whole can of worms…”

Bill Cosby sitcom dumped by NBC

NBC has halted development on its Bill Cosby sitcom. In the wake of mounting rape allegations against the legendary comedian, the broadcaster has shelved its plan to return The Cosby Show star to primetime.

The move follows Netflix “postponing” its plan to stream a Cosby stand-up special next week.

NBC first announced an untitled family sitcom starring Cosby last January, with a pilot to be written by former Glee star Mike O’Malley and sitcom veteran Mike Sikowitz. The show was still in early development, but NBC intended to potentially debut a series next fall.

Despite the traditional media and social media tempest, Cosby has never been convicted with a crime related to the allegations. The allegations accuse Cosby of crimes during the 1970s and ’80s, and the actor has also declined to answer questions about the accusations. READ FULL STORY

'AHS: Freak Show' First Look: See Evan Peters singing Nirvana's 'Come As You Are'

Some of American Horror Story: Freak Show‘s most talked-about moments this season have been the Baz Luhrmann-esque musical numbers, like Jessica Lange’s cover of David Bowie’s “Life on Mars” or Sarah Paulson’s version of Fiona Apple’s “Criminal.” Another major modern artist is covered in tonight’s installment of AHS—Evan Peters, who plays Jimmy Darling, croons Nirvana’s classic “Come As You Are.” It’s part of a crucial episode for Jimmy (and for Peters, who’s excellent) as well as Michael Chiklis’ Dell Toledo.

And there’s more music to come: Kathy Bates—yes Kathy Bates—will be doing Hole’s “Doll Parts” in an upcoming episode.  As Ryan Murphy explained to EW, “We decided we only were going to highlight musical artists who at some point in their career had identified themselves as feeling like freaks or misfits or outcasts, which our people are going through.”

American Horror Story: Freak Show airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. on FX.

'Gotham' scoop: No Harley Quinn this season, but expect 'prenatal Robin'

harley-quinn

Gotham iconic character update: Showrunner Bruno Heller reveals that fans can expect a “prenatal Robin” on the Fox drama series, while rumors of Harley Quinn making an appearance this season are unfounded.

“We’re going to do a prenatal origin story for Robin down the line,” Heller tells EW.

Since Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) is still a young teenager on the series, his youthful eventual partner Robin hasn’t even been born yet. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to tell a story that touches on his character. “There are no MRIs involved,” Heller assures. “There’s an episode coming up where we learn how Robin’s parents got together.” READ FULL STORY

Cecily Strong to host 2015 White House Correspondents' Dinner

The White House Correspondents’ Association announced today that Cecily Strong will be the entertainer at next year’s White House Correspondent’s dinner.

Strong will probably have a leg up on cracking wise on journalists: According to the White House Correspondents’ Association press release, Strong’s father, Bill Strong, served as Associated Press Bureau chief in the Illinois Statehouse.

“Her political humor is sly and edgy, and it comes with a Chicago accent. Cecily grew up in suburban Oak Park, Ill. and got her start in Chicago’s comedy scene with stints at iO and Second City,” said WHCA President Christi Parsons, in a statement.

Strong will be the fourth female host of the annual event, following past hosts Paula Poundstone, Elayne Boosler, and Wanda Sykes. The dinner will is set to take place Saturday, April 25, 2015, so it’s probably safe to say that Strong will have the night off at Saturday Night Live.
