CBS buys Silicon Valley medical drama from Jason Katims and Sarah Watson

CBS has given a pilot commitment for a medical drama set in Silicon Valley, created by writing duo Jason Katims and Sarah Watson—whose drama Parenthood will soon begin its sixth and final season.

According to Deadline, the drama will center on a controversial young tech titan who opens a cutting-edge hospital. The tech world has become  a hot selling point for development, as seen in the rise of tech-inspired shows, such as HBO’s Silicon Valley and AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire. Along with this project, Katims will continue as executive producer of About a Boy, one of the few freshmen comedies that NBC renewed for a second season.

Julie Chen on double 'Big Brother' evictions and Christine's fatal move

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

EW: If Donny did not win the power of veto and was still on the block, do you think he would/should have been evicted over Hayden?
JULIE CHEN: No, Hayden probably would have been evicted regardless because Derrick decided to turn his back on the “rationales” and Derrick seems to be running things. Plus, Donny seems to be the most liked person inside the house. Donny also has no one working with him, so he’s not a real threat. Hayden is a threat because he has Nicole and looks strong and has dangerous information that can blow up other people’s game.

Christine was playing a smart game until this week, when she sloppily blew up her alliance with Nicole and Hayden. She emerged as a power player this week, but did she overplay her hand too soon and blow it?
I think she did blow it. She went from being liked by all and secretly in two good alliances to being exposed as an untrustworthy person. It’s going to be hard if not impossible for Nicole to ever trust her again and when the Detonators have to dump one of their own, she’s likely to be at the top of the list.

What pleasure do you get from the double evictions? Do you feel bad that everything has to change, or is there a giddy Julie joy from the total madness of a double eviction night!?
I love double eviction night… Watching last minute strategizing, people blowing up other people’s games, making split-second decisions, digging deep to compete and win competitions… it’s what makes Big Brother awesome! This is where the rubber meets the road!

'Big Bang Theory' cast back in action: Production to restart

WTW-Big-Bang-Theory.jpg

They got their money, now it’s back to work. The Big Bang Theory‘s cast is going back to the set after striking new contract deals yesterday.

Studio Warner Bros. put out an ultra-brief statement Tuesday announcing the cast is going back to work tomorrow: “Production on season 8 of The Big Bang Theory will begin Wednesday, August 6, with contract negotiations now having been concluded.”

Yesterday EW confirmed that leads Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco have each made three-year deals with Warner Bros. TV to receive a whopping $1 million per episode, plus a larger cut of the show’s back-end. Co-stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar were still in talks as of yesterday, but this statement suggests those deals are finished too. Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch received raises back in September.

'Big Bang Theory' at Comic-Con: When Leia met Vader, a Wil Wheaton appearance, & more

The Big Bang Theory, no surprise, is a major hit with the Comic-Con crowd. When the show’s writers and producers gathered for a panel at the con, they delivered a consistently entertaining panel, with a few surprise guests and a couple of tidbits about the show’s upcoming eighth season.

Things kicked off with an appearance from Garfunkel and Oates (a.k.a. Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci, who played Lucy on Big Bang). The geeky folk duo wrote “If I Didn’t Have You,” the song Howard sang to Bernadette this season, and they serenaded the Ballroom 20 audience with a special rendition of the tune featuring this lyric: “We couldn’t have imagined we’d get to sing this song for The Big Bang Theory fans at Comic-Con.”

Wil Wheaton also joined the panel partway through the event, walking onstage in an ape mask. Shortly after he sat down, he began sputtering, “I have fake orangutan hair in my mouth.”

Here are some highlights from The Big Bang Theory’s panel: READ FULL STORY

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

Between Cody’s will-he-or-won’t-he nomination, Frankie’s tragic news, Brittany’s hanging toenails, Donny’s gentle eyes, Jocasta’s dumb bowties, Hayden and Nicole’s hook-up (finally), and Derrick’s heroic—and perhaps very savvy—throwing of the HoH competition, there was a lot going on this week in the world of Big Brother. Thankfully, Julie Chen is here to help take some of the mystery away.  READ FULL STORY
