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.

Brace yourselves, Whovians: Long-running cult obsession Doctor Who returns to BBC America on Aug. 23 with a new star, Peter Capaldi, and a new attitude. Compared with Matt Smith’s previous Doctor, Capaldi’s lead character is “a lot fiercer,” says Jenna Coleman, who plays his traveling companion, Clara Oswald. “This man is a total adrenaline junkie.”
Earlier this week, EW debuted a first look at the titular characters in Disney Channel’s original movie Descendants—the children of some of Disney’s iconic heritage characters who attend a prep school with other famous offspring (like Jane, daughter of the Fairy Godmother, and Audrey, the daughter of Sleeping Beauty).
Today, we’ve got another preview of the 2015 DCOM (that is, Disney Channel Original Movie). This time, it’s Kristin Chenoweth’s malevolent Maleficent who steals the focus.
“Who didn’t love to hate Maleficent?” says director Kenny Ortega, who helms Descendants after finding great success on another DCOM franchise, High School Musical. “You have the incomparable Kristin Chenoweth with this fantastic chemistry with Dove Cameron, who plays her daughter, and wonderful wit and good humor with Kathy Najimy, who plays her neighbor, the Evil Queen. It’s just a dream.”
In the movie, Maleficent is the only villain among those held prisoner on the Isle of the Lost who has not completely given up hope on conquering the kingdom. In the photo at hand, Maleficent is scolding her daughter Mal (Cameron) for not reaching her evil potential, while the Evil Queen’s daughter Evie (Sofia Carson), Cruella de Vil’s son Carlos (Cameron Boyce), and Jafar’s son Jay (Booboo Stewart) look on.
Descendants is slated to premiere in 2015 on Disney Channel.

When Aaron Sorkin began writing The West Wing, the president was supposed to be a background character, a palpable presence that hovered over the plot but rarely made an actual appearance. Then, in the series’ opening episodes, Martin Sheen ambled on screen, charmed the audience with his intellectual idealism and leading-man aura, and everything changed.
It will be interesting to see if something similar occurs when George Washington makes his first appearance on Turn, AMC’s new Revolutionary War drama. Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot) stars as Abraham Woodhull, a Long Island farmer who risks his life and family to gather intelligence on the British in his hometown and nearby New York City. Thus far, Washington has been mentioned only in passing, mostly in derogatory fashion after his troops were swept out of New York in 1776 and the Continental Congress contemplated relieving him of command. But last Sunday, Abe’s tips about Hessian troops in Trenton were smuggled into an intelligence packet that found its way to Washington’s office, a bustling nerve center of activity.
On Sunday, May 4, General Washington makes his Turn debut. New York-bred actor Ian Kahn, who’s recently guested on shows like Shameless, Bones, and Parenthood, gets the honor — and burden — of portraying the Founding Father. The 42-year-old spoke to EW about his humbling experience. READ FULL STORY
This week on New Girl Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), and Winston (Lamorne Morris) attempt to show the world they know a thing or two about spitting verses. Check out what happens on the next episode when the boys’ pick-up rap group, The Dumbest Boys In School, perform at Coolidge Middle School.
Law & Order: SVU‘s Detective Olivia Benson is no stranger to trauma, but this season, her experience reached another level thanks to William Lewis (guest star Pablo Schreiber). Lewis, a psychotic killer and rapist, set his sights on Benson a while back, even kidnapping her at one point. And despite his arrest earlier this season, Lewis was back in the most recent episode, when he went after a young girl to lure Benson back in.
His plan worked, but what Benson didn’t expect was that his plan would end with a good old-fashioned round of Russian Roulette. Lewis forced a tied up Benson to play along with him, putting a gun to her own head and pulling the trigger twice, before the last bullet ended up being directed toward him. And in a shocking moment, he put his head next to Benson’s just as he pulled the trigger, killing himself and ending her nightmare once and for all.
Or so we thought. In a first look from this week’s episode, it seems Benson’s nightmare isn’t quite over. There are questions surrounding Lewis’ suicide, and the simple solution seems to be for Benson to claim she killed him in self defense.
