Jennifer Beals and Troian Bellisario go toe-to-toe in new web series -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

The pop culture-obsessed out there know Jennifer Beals as Alex from Flashdance and Troian Bellisario as Spencer from ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars. But are you ready to see the pair enlist in a couple of totally different roles? Beals and Bellisario do just that by joining the army in their new WIGS web series, Lauren.

EW has an exclusive first look at the series below via its official trailer, which will debut on the YouTube channel after episode 11 of Christine beginning at 9 a.m. ET on Wednesday.

The Lauren trailer drips with drama — and includes a heavy dose of tension between Beals’ commanding officer character and Bellisario’s soldier character. “Your report is well-written,” Beals barks at Bellisario shortly into the preview. “You could be a writer. You could almost write fiction. Do you understand me?”

But something is amiss between the major and her report — and it’s not savory. “Major, is there something reason you can’t use the word ‘rape’?” Bellisario asks, foreshadowing what the series is about. The official description from WIGS says that Beals’ skeptical character is forced to “choose between what she loves and what is right.”

Another WIGS series, Blue, featured Julia Stiles playing the role of an escort.

Check out the preview — which finds Beals and Bellisario is startlingly dramatic roles — here:

'Pretty Little Liars' season 2 finale: Shay Mitchell 'speechless' after [SPOILER]'s death

In our earlier burning questions post about last night’s explosive episode of Pretty Little Liars, the show’s producers explained their controversial decision to — SPOILER ALERT — kill off Maya St. Germain (Bianca Lawson), the girlfriend of the show’s teenage lesbian, Emily (Shay Mitchell). Series creator Marlene King says the shocking death — which came unexpectedly in the episode’s last few seconds — was necessary to set up season 3′s mystery: “It just felt like we had to continue on this journey and it was a step we needed to take to give ourselves more mystery and open up the show to season 3.”

“That’s the only backlash I think we’re going to get from the finale,” she continued. “The Maya fans are going to be a little bit upset.” But what does Mitchell — who plays the deceased’s girlfriends on the show — think about the death of her character’s on-screen love? READ FULL STORY

'Pretty Little Liars' season 2 finale reveals identity of 'A': Burning questions answered! -- EXCLUSIVE

The wait is over: The identity of the elusive “A” was revealed on Monday’s new episode of ABC Family’s addictive teen mystery-drama Pretty Little Liars. The fast-paced episode careened through a Psycho homage and a masquerade ball before — SPOILER ALERT! — dropping the bombshell that variously snobby clinger Mona Vanderwall (Janel Parrish) was “A,” the cyber-bully who’d been terrorizing Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Hanna (Ashley Benson), and Emily (Shay Mitchell) since the death of their pal Allison (Sasha Pieterse) in the show’s 2010 premiere.

The reveal, of course, leads to so many questions: Why Mona? What was her motive? Did she have help? Is there a “Team A” now? Will Mona be back when Pretty Little Liars returns for season 3 in June? What’s happening next season? And we should address the other shocker of last night’s episode: Why kill Maya? To answer those burning questions and more, EW tapped series creator Marlene King and executive producer Oliver Goldstick for an exclusive interview to fill us in on all the scoop:


Amy Sherman-Palladino talks 'Bunheads,' ABC Family announces summer premiere dates

At ABC Family’s upfront in New York today, the main topic of conversation was the reveal of “A” on tonight’s Pretty Little Liars’ season finale. Even Secret Life of the American Teenager creator Brenda Hampton asked PLL EP Marlene King for a clue during their showrunners panel, but King would only say that the show, which was Twitter’s No. 1 TV Hot Topic in 2011, may bring the site down this evening after it reveals a new mystery by the end of the hour.

Also buzzworthy: Bunheads, the new show from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, debuting Monday, June 11. Two-time Tony winner Sutton Foster stars as trained dancer Michelle, who became a Vegas showgirl and is approaching the end of her career with a feeling of “Well, now what the f— do I do?” as Sherman-Palladino put it to the crowd. (“Sorry, kids, sorry. Are there children [here]? This is why I’m on ABC Family, because I care about the children,” she joked. “I think it’s better that they learn all those words from me rather than on the street or in a back alley with some dirty syringes…. I’m gonna teach them the right way to say ‘F—.’” ) READ FULL STORY

'Pretty Little Liars': Who is 'A'? Stars and producers tease the top suspects

Who is “A” on ABC Family’s addictive teen mystery-drama series Pretty Little Liars? Fans are dying to know, and — as we exclusively told you back in December here on — that big secret will be revealed on the show’s much-anticipated second season finale, which airs tonight at 8 p.m.

Obviously, the culprit — who has been cyber-bullying Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Hanna (Ashley Benson), and Emily (Shay Mitchell) since the puzzling death of their queen-bee friend Allison (Sasha Pieterse) in the show’s 2010 premiere — could be anyone. “When ‘A’ is revealed, if you go back and watch every show,” teases PLL creator and showrunner Marlene King, “it will be completely plausible for the answer to be true.” That’s why we’ve enlisted King and her lieutenant, executive producer Oliver Goldstick — as well as stars Hale and Bellisario, in a cute video below — to offer some intel about seven of the most speculated-about suspects, which we’re sharing with you now here:


'Pretty Little Liars': Spencer, Aria, and Caleb talk 'eerie,' mysterious season 2 finale

Pretty Little Liars fans have been anticipating tomorrow night’s season 2 finale for months ever since it was announced that the identity of terrifying tormentor “A” would be revealed. Not only will the nail-biting episode solve the years-long mystery fueling the addictive series, it will also feature an elaborate game of cat-and-mouse at a masquerade ball. To be sure, “A” won’t be exposed without a fight, which means life-or-death stakes for the Liars.

EW talked with stars Troian Bellisario (Spencer), Lucy Hale (Aria), and Tyler Blackburn (Caleb), who teased the thrilling conclusion of this chapter of Liars. Says Bellisario, “It’s a really big [moment]. It’s a real concrete [instance when the girls] have to stand up [and] stop being scared or else it’s never going to end.”

What else the stars could reveal about the list of suspects, their characters’ relationship status, and the ball itself? Find out after the jump. READ FULL STORY
