Fox picks up 'Bones' spin-off 'The Finder,' J.J. Abrams 'Alcatraz' to series

UPDATED: Fox just picked up two dramas to series: The Finder, a spin-off of its hit drama Bones starring Geoff Stults, and Alcatraz, the J.J. Abrams mystery featuring Lost co-star Jorge Garcia.

Finder has Stults as a former military policeman whose brain damage from two tours in Iraq have given him the ability to locate anything or anyone. The 13-episode order comes despite the fact that ratings for the backdoor pilot episode of Bones featuring Stults (and costars Saffron Burrows and Michael Clarke Duncan) were down 9 percent from the previous week’s episode.

The Alcatraz pilot had soft industry buzz after its screenings, but Abrams’ pedigree  (and some of that Lost magic?) probably helped it snag a spot on the Fox schedule.

Here are some of the higher profile projects we are hearing that are not expected to be on Fox’s schedule next season: READ FULL STORY

Season finale alert! When to expect goodbye episodes from 'Survivor,' 'Chuck,' and 'Saturday Night Live'

Where did the time ago? It seems like just yesterday that we were anxiously awaiting the start of Lone Star; now we can barely remember that two-timing cad. That’s because it’s season finale time – that heartbreaking period when we bid adieu to nine months of scripted heaven to make way for three months of unscripted hell on the broadcast networks. (Don’t worry, Big Brother: We still adore thee).

Fire up your DVR playlists, kids … here are all the broadcast net finales. READ FULL STORY

Emily Deschanel on her pregnancy being worked into 'Bones': 'I think it's unlikely, but only time will tell'

Ever since Emily Deschanel's
pregnancy was announced in March, Bones fans have been wondering how her fall due date will affect the show. Now that the Fox drama has finally received a season 7 pickup, that's something producers are in the process of deciding -- both in terms of story and production schedule. "I imagine that you're gonna see Brennan behind a microscope a lot next season. I think there's gonna be a lot of close-ups of Brennan. I said I'd work though my hiatus, but we didn't have a pick up until now, and they have to write before we shoot. It's a whole situation," Deschanel tells EW, with a laugh. "They have to see how long it takes them to write episodes. I think we'll have our normal schedule starting in July or something, but I don't know. We just had an email about that [yesterday]

. Like, ‘We don’t know… but these are possibilities.”

The bigger question for viewers, of course, is whether Brennan will become pregnant as well. READ FULL STORY

'Bones' renewed for seventh season

David Boreanaz tweeted moments ago that Fox’s Bones has been picked up for a seventh season.

“OT! Orange and Black craziness! Oh, Season 7 is GO for Bones,” he tweeted.

Fox could not immediately confirm, but we’re confident that he’s right.

'Bones' spin-off 'The Finder,' Will Ferrell on 'The Office' dip in ratings

Broadcast ratings dropped sharply Thursday night, which wasn’t great for key episodes of NBC’s The Office and Fox’s Bones.

The Bones spin-off “backdoor pilot” The Finder (11.1 million, 3.2) was down 9 percent from last week’s regular episode. Yet, since its American Idol lead-in (19.6 million, 5.6) fell 13 percent, one could argue Bones retained a slightly larger portion of its lead-in this week.

Over on NBC, The Office (6.8 million, 3.3) dropped 18 percent as Will Ferrell continues as guest star and the show ramps up to Steve Carell’s departure.

The working theory: With the Easter holiday approaching and Spring Break underway, many viewers are traveling and therefore TV viewership is down (one reason why ABC and CBS are staying out of the game and aired repeats last night). READ FULL STORY

'Bones': Michael Clarke Duncan talks 'Finder' episode

This Thursday’s “Finder” episode of Bones serves as a backdoor pilot for a potential new Fox show costarring Oscar nominee Michael Clarke Duncan (The Green Mile) as Leo Knox, the legal advisor, bodyguard, and best friend to Geoff Stults’ Walter Sherman, a former military policeman who can locate anything and anyone. If “Finder” — also featuring Saffron Burrows as Ike Latulippe, the badass who drives the boats, flies the planes, and owns The Ends of the Earth, the bar they call their headquarters — makes it to series, it will be Duncan’s first regular TV gig. (If not, at least he’s got voicing Kilowog in this summer’s Green Lantern to fall back on.)   READ FULL STORY

John Francis Daley on co-writing tonight's episode of 'Bones' and sharing a scene with his dad for the first time. (Awww.)

You probably didn’t need another reason to watch Bones tonight, but here’s one anyway: The hour, which took Bones and Booth into the world of myths, was penned by none other than Bones cast member John Francis Daley.

In a chat with EW, Daly, whose name also earns a writing credit on Horrible Bosses, out July 8, breaks down his first experience writing an episode of Bones, the “nerve-wracking” scene he shared with his father (who guest stars in the ep), and the season finale of Bones. (Preview: “…they are not renewing my contract.” By the way, I’m totally throwing you off with that snippet.)  READ FULL STORY

'Bones': Geoff Stults talks 'Finder' episode -- EXCLUSIVE

Ever since Bones creator Hart Hanson announced that he would be using the April 21 episode called “The Finder” to introduce a character, Walter Sherman, who could potentially front a new series on Fox come fall, fans have been wanting to know more about him. Fortunately, Geoff Stults, the Happy Town and October Road vet who was cast as the man who can unearth anyone and anything, is finally talking. In the episode, Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) travel to Florida to solve the murder of a maritime museum security guard, and once there, Booth suggests they call on Walter to help locate a stolen treasure map.

We’ll learn that years ago, Walter, a former military policeman, tracked Seeley down after he went AWOL when he wasn’t granted leave to see the birth of his son, Parker. “Booth has always been resentful of that because I arrested him, and he’s always wanted to get me back,” Stults says, “but he’s also known that I’m really good at finding things.” Booth tells Brennan that Walter has “finder power,” which Walter proves to Brennan by finding something that’s important to her. “And then, I kind of fall in love with her. And then she has a minute of like, ‘Wait, do I like him?’ — just enough, I’m sure, that the Bones fans are gonna be like, Nooo waaay. I saw it one time on Twitter already. I was like let me shoot the f—in’ thing first. Relax, guys,” Stults laughs. “Don’t kill me. I’m just tryin’ to get a pilot picked up here.”

After hearing more about Walter Sherman, we think we’re gonna like him. Here’s what we’ve uncovered:  READ FULL STORY
