Amazon's new test pilots take flight

Not so long ago, reality TV promised us that anyone could be a famous singer,
or chef, or alligator wrestler, or Amish craftsman. Now it’s not enough to be onscreen talent: We want to be development execs, too.

We have that chance with Amazon presenting its third round of pilots, which can be found on Amazon Instant Video. Viewers can watch, rate, and review the five new shows, and their feedback will help the streaming site decide which pilots to pick up as original series. (Last time around it ordered six series, including Chris Carter’s The After and Jill Soloway’s Transparent.) Here’s our guide to what to watch and what to skip—because, as a busy exec, you need a lowly assistant to do the dirty work. READ FULL STORY

Fox orders Rivers Cuomo project

Fox has given a put-pilot commitment for DeTour, a project based on the life of Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Cuomo’s real-life “detour”—when he returned to study at Harvard University in the midst of his musical career—the single-camera comedy will focus on a middle-aged rock star who leaves success on stage in order to rediscover himself.

Steve Franks, the creator of USA Network’s Psych, will write the pilot and executive produce along with Cuomo.

Tyler Posey and Dylan O'Brien of 'Teen Wolf' on fans, first impressions

In four seasons, Teen Wolf has morphed from a guilty pleasure into a bloody thrill ride, making teen-scene royalty out of leads Tyler Posey (as titular teen wolf Scott McCall) and Dylan O’Brien (as his trusted friend Stiles). Offscreen, the 22-year-old actors are real-life pals who display an easy rapport despite some philosophical differences on things like sports and tattoos.

EW visited the show’s Los Angeles set recently for scoop on the sexiest, scariest, most bonkers show on MTV. Check out the extended interview below:

EW: This year, you premiered the season while still working on it. Did that throw you off to watch the premiere then come to work?
TYLER POSEY: It caught me completely off guard. We never really had a season start filming as we’re shooting it. It’s hard to be focused on both, but it’s exciting. The next day, I’ll always wake up to a text from Dylan like, ‘The episode was great, you kicked ass.'”
DYLAN O’BRIEN: I watched it at like 3:30 in the morning. READ FULL STORY

Watch the 'Walking Dead' cast prank Andrew Lincoln

The Walking Dead cast is like one big happy family. But that doesn’t mean these folks are above having some fun at each other’s expense. Just take our Entertainment Weekly Walking Dead cover shoot, for example. During a hot summer day on the Terminus set — where the shoot took place — we asked the actors to tell us something about Andrew Lincoln that he doesn’t want anyone to know. We weren’t sure if they would answer that. After all, Andrew Lincoln is a swell guy! Everyone loves Andrew Lincoln! Would they really betray his trust like that? It turns out they were all too happy to comply.

Check out Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Steven Yeun, and Danai Gurira totally selling their costar out. Is what they say true, or just all made up in an effort to further embarrass the man who plays Rick Grimes? Watch the video below and judge for yourself.
