Exclusive: Watch the extended trailer for MTV's controversial theme park dramedy 'Happyland'

Back in October, MTV ordered two new comedy pilots: the pseudo-lesbian high school series Faking It, which earned a second season renewal in June, and Happyland, a soapy teen dramedy that dives into the not-so-glamorous behind-the-scenes reality of a popular theme park.

Set to premiere on September 30, Happyland stars Bianca Santos (of The Fosters) as Lucy, a cynical employee and daughter to the park’s perfect princess Elena (Camille Guaty). Desperate to escape the park’s brand of manufactured happiness, Lucy rethinks her desire to flee after the arrival of a new staff member—the son (Awkward’s Shane Harper) of Happyland’s new owner—who brings a scandalous secret with him. (Spoiler: The, er, family-unfriendly twist caused quite a stir at the TCA Press Tour earlier Friday.)

Check out the extended trailer for Happyland, which was created by Ben Epstein and includes uber-producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan among the EP team. READ FULL STORY

Mark-Paul Gosselaar to star opposite Mark-Paul Gosselaar on 'CSI'

Mark-Paul Gosselaar will play a notorious serial killer on CSI this fall.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar will also not play a notorious serial killer on CSI this fall.

Confused? Here’s the deal: EW can exclusively reveal that the Franklin & Bash star (who, let’s face it, you still know best as Zack Morris on Saved By the Bell) has booked an arc on CBS’s venerable procedural—and that he’ll be playing twins named JAred Briscoe and Paul Wintrhop. One of the brothers is an unrepentant murderer about to be executed for his crimes; the other, according to CBS, is “a real estate magnate and a pillar of the community who insists on his brother’s innocence.” Neither, presumably, has a cell phone that looks like this.

The fifteenth season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation premieres Sunday, Sept. 28 on CBS.

First look: Yaya DaCosta as Whitney Houston in Lifetime's biopic

Lifetime’s early-2015 biopic Whitney Houston (working title)—directed by the singer’s Waiting to Exhale costar Angela Bassett and starring ­former America’s Next Top Model contestant Yaya DaCosta—just began shooting. But DaCosta has already re-created the iconic cover of the pop diva’s 1987 Whitney album. And her ­modeling background came in handy for the quick shoot. Laughs the star, “I just looked at the picture and did the pose!” Somewhere Tyra is smizing proudly.

'True Blood' EP Brian Buckner talks final season: 'Heads are gonna roll'

True Blood‘s final season begins this Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO, and a warning to viewers: Prepare for major Blood-shed. “It’s the final season of True Blood, so gone are the days where we pull our punches,” teases showrunner Brian Buckner. “Heads are gonna roll.”

The premiere picks up immediately after the events of the season 6 finale, which found Bellefleur’s Bar and Grill under siege by a group of Hep-V-infected vamps. “Mayor Merlotte, Sheriff Bellefleur, and Jason Stackhouse are going to have their hands full, because not only do they have to fend off these H-vamps, but also they have to fend off this [Bon Temps] vigilante group,” he explains. In a deliberate nod to Hurricane Katrina, adds Buckner, Blood‘s tiny Louisiana town will be left on its own in the wake of the Hep-V outbreak, getting no support or protection from the government.

'The Bachelorette' exclusive: Watch Cody confront Nick

Nobody mocks Cody and gets away with it. Nobody.

For most rose lovers, Cody is just a body builder Andi barely associates with — yet doesn’t feel the need to send home. But on tonight’s Bachelorette, expect Cody to do more than sit back, flex his muscles, and blend into the background.

'The Challenge': Talk to the (busted) hand -- EXCLUSIVE

Which injury will have greater consequences as The Challenge heads into its homestretch: Cara Maria’s fractured hand, or her seemingly irreparable rift with former bestie Laurel?

On the next episode of Free Agents, Cara returns to the Challenge house the morning after a physical elimination battle sent her to the hospital. Through tears, she frets over how her damaged middle finger (how appropriate!) could jeopardize her chances of making it to the final.
