Starz’ CEO Chris Albrecht told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour Friday that he lobbied Universal for the rights to the bestselling S&M book series. His pitch: A three-season TV series where each E L James novel was told over the course of a full season.

Albrecht was originally talking about his upcoming series Outlander, a romantic fantasy (with much softer sexual content than Fifty Shades). Outlander is based on a series of books by Diana Gabaldon and each season will roughly follow the course of one of her novels. READ FULL STORY

'Fifty Shades of Grey' star joins Kevin Williamson's CBS drama pilot

Fifty Shades of Grey star Victor Rasuk has been cast as a series regular in the untitled Kevin Williamson stalker/crime drama pilot for CBS.

Rasuk will play Ben, described as a loyal but not entirely trustworthy detective with the Threat Assessment Unit, who “tries too hard with the ladies — but not hard enough with everyone else.” The one-hour untitled project is dubbed a psychological thriller centered on detectives in the Threat Assessment Unit of the LAPD, a.k.a. the Stalkers Unit.

Rasuk joins previously announced castmembers Maggie Q (Nikita),  Dylan McDermott (Hostages), and Mariana Klaveno (Devious Maids).

He will next be seen in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie as Christian Grey’s romantic rival José Rodriguez, as well as in Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla out May 16. Other credits include a role on How to Make It in America and the independent film Raising Victor Vargas.

The addition of Rasuk completes series regular casting on the project.

'Fifty Shades' actress to star in ABC drama pilot

A leading actress from next year’s Fifty Shades of Grey film has been cast in a new ABC drama pilot.

Eloise Mumford, who plays Anastasia Steele’s best friend and roommate Kate in the adult romance, will star in the network’s medical drama Warriors. Inspired by the state of the art Walter Reed Military Medical Center, the series follows “the best and brightest active duty military doctors and nurses as they practice trailblazing medicine.” Before Fifty Shades, Mumford appeared in ABC’s The River.

“Eloise is really special,” said executive producer Chris Keyser (Party of Five), who worked with Mumford on Fox’s Lone Star. “She is perfect for this role and our first choice. I couldn’t be happier or feel luckier that we have the chance to make Warriors together.”
