EP talks 'Law & Order: SVU' Trayvon Martin episode -- EXCLUSIVE

Law & Order: SVU never shies away from keeping up with the cultural zeitgeist. Executive Producer Warren Leight has said that he looks to the headlines of the day to figure out exactly what issues they should be dealing with on the procedural, which is currently in production filming its 15th season.

Wednesday, pictures from the SVU set emerged on BuzzFeed and speculation mounted about whether or not the images might suggest that the show was taking on the controversial George Zimmerman trial so soon. In fact, the SVU writers have taken things one step further and combined two of the year’s biggest headlines: The trial of Zimmerman over the killing of Florida teen Trayvon Martin and the Paula Deen scandal.

'Vampire Diaries' season 5 scoop: Showrunner teases sexy Damon and Elena scenes

The Vampire Diaries may have wrapped up season 4 with some major cliffhangers, but you won’t see the immediate aftermath in the fall premiere.

“It’s a time jump,” exec producer Julie Plec tells EW. “Summer has passed in which poor Stefan has been suffering at the bottom of the quarry and Damon and Elena have been having hot lovin’ sex.”

Though the premiere will pick up with move-in day at college (yes, they’re actually enrolling!), Plec promises fans will get to see some of the steamy action that went down over break.

“We found a stylized way to show the audience how things went over the summer, what everybody was up to,” says Plec, who reveals that the title of the episode is “I Know What You Did Last Summer.”

'New Girl' stars cuddle up for fall promo poster, behind-the-scenes video -- FIRST LOOK

Oh, loftmates, we’ve missed you so! Fox rolls out its new key art for New Girl‘s third season tomorrow, and the bright-and-bubbly image is emblazoned with the cheeky slogan, “Friends don’t let friends do friends.” That would be in reference, of course, to the burgeoning romance between Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson). Perhaps the new couple’s friends are still adjusting, but we couldn’t be happier to find out where the “roomfriends”‘ relationship will lead.

The key art is fun, eye-popping, and chock full o’ personality (hey there, Nick’s turtle face!), hinting at the dynamics set to play out this fall. Winston (Lamorne Morris) looks particularly happy… perhaps he’s still loopy on meds after being mauled by Bucky the Badger? Cece (Hannah Simone) doesn’t seem too upset that Schmidt (Max Greenfield) literally ran away from her after she called off her wedding on his account — though they do appear to be keeping their distance.

That’s all speculation, of course. What we can tell you for sure, though, is what went down at the cast’s recent photo shoot. Scored to Cut One & Bamyasi’s “Always Looked So Blue,” this exclusive behind-the-scenes video is worth watching if only for a glimpse of Johnson leaning in to steal a kiss from his onscreen sweetie.

'Supernatural,' 'Suits,' 'Covert Affairs,' 'Blue Bloods': Find out what's next in Spoiler Room

Welcome to Spoiler Room’s FALL SEASON!

Ok, I know it’s still technically summer, but all your favorite shows are back at work and the scoop is coming fast and furious.  So, here we are.  Group hug!

With that: PLEASE send your questions in to Spoilerroom@ew.com. You can find your answers here every Thursday.

‘COVERT AFFAIRS': WILL SPARKS FLY WITH ANNIE AND TEO?

In the July 30 episode of USA’s Covert Affairs, Annie (Piper Perabo) heads back to Colombia to determine the true allegiances of Arthur’s son, Teo (Manolo Cardona), after she receives intel that the terrorist group he’s involved with is planning an attack. There are some tense scenes between Perabo and Cardona, who previously worked together on the slightly less suspenseful 2008 film Beverly Hills Chihuahua. “I can’t tell you everything that happens to him [this season], but it’s dangerous,” Perabo says, with a laugh. “He gets a lot of stunts, car crashes, and shootouts. That’s another reason I was glad they cast Manolo: I was glad to have a really brave, macho guy.”

While we’re happy Annie is finally with her handler, Auggie (Chris Gorham), we can’t help but wonder if we’ll see sparks fly with Teo. “We shot this scene recently with Teo in a foreign city,” Perabo says carefully, “and he rescued me in the middle of this fight. Both the hair and makeup girls came up to me afterward, and they said, ‘What’s gonna happen with Teo and Annie?! It all seems like it’s gonna go off!’ I went up to Manolo, and I was like, ‘All right, keep it on a simmer. You can’t put out that much heat. You’re Latin. A little is a lot!'” — Mandi Bierly

‘SUPERNATURAL': SCOOP-A-PALOOZA

In addition to what was dolled out during the Supernatural panel, this year’s press room was a wonderful flood of scooplets. Here, I pull out some highlights:

+ CROWLEY = CURED? – Mark Sheppard scooped to me during our chat on the EW Comic-Con couch that Crowley was most certainly going to struggle with certain side effects from almost being cured at the end of last season, but, he maintains, Sam and Dean “did not cure him.” “I mean, as far as the canon is concerned, if you don’t complete the task then it hasn’t happened. I’d be more interested to see…if there is any residual effects.”

+ DEAN’S SECRET– So, Dean’s got a secret. Exactly what it is, we’re not sure. Neither is Jensen Ackles, but, he teases, it’s “one of the bigger issues of the series.” “So it’ll be interesting to see how that plays out,” he says. Jared Padalecki teased a little further: ” It does really heavily involve Sam, and even has a lot to do with why Sam’s still alive. So Dean is just kind of lying to Sam.  And he’s hating it every step of the way and Sam can’t really tell,” he says. “But when Sam finds out, s–t’s going to hit the fan.”

+ WILL ACKLES DIRECT? Ackles is also waiting to hear whether or not he’ll step behind the camera to direct another episode. After directing one episode per season for the last three seasons, “I’m not directing this year — well not yet. They haven’t given me one. I usually direct the first one out of the gate, but because I have a 7-week-old daughter I opted to stay home with the newborn instead this year,” he says. But there’s still a chance he can. “There’s still a few episodes that are not slated yet with the directors and I think they’re trying to figure out how they can slide me in there storyline wise.”

+ CASTIEL’S NEW CHALLENGES – Lots of scoop on what’s coming up with powerless Cas in my chat with Misha Collins and Mark Sheppard, but Collins, who is slated to appear in more than a dozen episodes throughout this season, added on the matter: “I certainly hope that at the very least, Cas is going to change his underwear now that he’s human. But I will tease for you – this is pretty juicy stuff since we’re getting into the wardrobe, there is a Laundromat scene in episode 1. So this very question has been forefront in the writer’s minds.” As for his relationship with the boys? Ackles says, “It’ll be interesting to see how the relationship evolves given his new lack of skills.”

‘SUITS’ ALMOST STAGED A BIG BREAK-UP

The new relationship between law firm associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) and paralegal Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) may get rocky on Suits, but it is here to stay – at least for the length of the USA drama’s summer run. But it wasn’t always that way.

“They were planning on breaking us up at episode 10,” Markle reveals. “I know that it has now been completely restructured and re-conceived because they are enjoying Mike and Rachel as a couple too much. They don’t want to do it.”

The decision is one she definitely supports. “It’s really kind of cool and sweet to just not have to keep slapping him,” she jokes. But on a serious note, she adds, “Because the show is doing so well, and we’re so lucky — you can see that we probably have a few more seasons in us — the idea of ‘will-they-won’t-they, will-they-won’t-they, okay, they will, but only for 10 episodes and then it’s going to go away’ felt like then where do you go from that? If it took us two seasons to try to figure out if we could make it work, then maybe they take that time and really give us an opportunity to have something. Just like with any character, with any relationship that you have onscreen, when you can settle into it a bit more, you get to find what’s interesting about it, find layers and nuances. So I’m really happy that they’re really happy with it.” — Mandi Bierly

DON’T FORGET PAGE 2. (Or do you like it to be on one page only? Be honest…)

'Intelligence' panel at Comic-Con: 6 Billion Dollar Man?

 The Project: CBS’s new suspense drama Intelligence

Panel: Stars Marg Helgenberger (CSI), Josh Holloway (Lost) and Meghan Ory (Once Upon a Time), joined by Executive Producers Michael Seitzman and Tripp Vinson. Helgenberger looked ageless, as usual, and Holloway looked mighty fine.

 Footage screened: Pilot episode that debuts Monday, Feb. 24

 Snap judgment: The catcalls began almost immediately when Holloway showed up on screen as a federal agent named Gabriel Black who has a nifty chip in his brain. The premiere episode features lots of cyber rendering – show speak for flashes of data that serve as Gabriel’s “virtual snapshot of an event.” Thanks to his infinite access to information, Gabriel can pull intel on just about anybody, including hot Riley (Ory), who was hired to serve as his personal bodyguard from the Secret Service. (Naturally).

 The Big Revelations: They talk about the Six Million Dollar Man a lot in the writers’ room. “It was about human enhancement,” Seitzman says. “We try to make a show that feels as much human as it does technology. (The Six Million Dollar Man) asked very similar things.” And this is a dream for Holloway, who grew up wanting to play a secret agent. (He makes a dang good-looking one, too.) And good news for Red Riding Hood/Ruby fans from Once Upon a Time: “Red never died, Ruby never died,” said Ory, who played the role for two seasons. “She is around somewhere. I like to think she is running around in the woods. So I think we’ll be seeing her again.”

Most incisive audience question: No time for marriage proposals for Holloway, sadly.
