Lifetime orders dystopian thriller from 'Children of Men' author

Lifetime is getting into the thriller genre, picking up 10 episodes of conspiracy drama The Lottery.

Written by Children of Men author Timothy J. Sexton, The Lottery is set in a dystopian future when women have stopped having children and the human race is on the verge of extinction. But when a fertility specialist (Marley Shelton) successfully fertilizes 100 embryos, the government sponsors a lottery to find suitable surrogates.

The Lottery is one of the most provocative and original concepts we’ve ever seen,” the network’s executive vice president Rob Sharenow said. “Tim Sexton’s unique dystopian thriller represents an exciting new direction for Lifetime and continues cable’s position on the leading edge of bold, high-quality scripted drama.”

The series also stars Michael Graziadei (American Horror Story), David Alpay (The Vampire Diaries), and Martin Donovan (Homeland). Sexton is set to executive produce along with former Prison Break EP Dawn Olmstead.

Not even the Mother on 'How I Met Your Mother' knows her name yet

Though it has remained an abstraction for most of this TV season, the final episode of How I Met Your Mother is slowly coming into focus. This week, co-creator Craig Thomas tweeted a photo of the cover of the 95-page HIMYM finale, which is titled “Last Forever,” and production is already underway on the show’s final batch of episodes.

But don’t expect very many spoilers or leaks to surface just because the script is now in circulation. “It exists, but I have not glimpsed it,” admits actress Cristin Milioti, who joined the cast this season as the titular Mother. “There’s been discussion. It’s CIA-level lockdown. Our scripts are watermarked, and it feels really cool.” READ FULL STORY

'About a Boy' reunites Adrianne Palicki with 'Friday Night Lights' creator

Adrianne Palicki is reuniting with her old Friday Night Lights boss Jason Katims.

EW has confirmed that the former FNL star has booked a guest arc on NBC’s About a Boy, which is executive produced by Katims, playing the love interest of David Walton’s Will, the man-child at the center of the show and of the book by Nick Hornby, on which the series is based. Palicki, who will play a doctor named Samantha Lake, is set to appear in seven episodes.

This is far from the first time Katims has visited his well of FNL talent to populate his new shows. Matt Lauria, Jurnee Smollett, Michael B. Jordan, and Minka Kelly are just a few of the alums who have visited Katims’ other NBC show, Parenthood.

It’s probably for the best that Palicki has waited this long to reunite with Katims, as just last week, he confirmed that both his one-hour drama and forthcoming comedy exist in the same reality. Walton recently had a cameo in an episode of Parenthood, playing his character from About a Boy, and soon, Dax Shepard will also have a cameo appearance on Boy. “I’ve never done anything like that before,” Katims said last week, but “it seemed like a natural thing to do.”

Palicki’s first episode does not yet have an air date. About a Boy premieres Feb. 22.

'Hawaii Five-0': Rob Corddry lands magical role in fan-built episode -- EXCLUSIVE

EW has learned exclusively that the actor, who plays clown/doctor Cutter/Roy Spindell on Comedy Central’s Children’s Hospital, has been tapped to play a former high school classmate of Chin’s (Daniel Dae Kim) who crosses paths with the cop at a high school reunion. Corddry’s character, a professional magician named Tony, is described as a “humorously sleazy” man who has a long rap sheet and soon becomes a suspect in a murder investigation.

The episode — the plot and details of which were voted on by fans late last year — does not yet have an air date. Jorge Garcia also guests in the episode, reprising his role as Chin’s friend and former classmate Jerry.

'The Vampire Diaries' bosses reveal the seven biggest debates from the writers' room, and the two smallest

Five seasons in and 100 episodes later, the writers behind all things related to Mystic Falls, the Salvatore brothers, and of course, doppelgängers have given us countless twists, turns, and heartbreaking memorable moments. But what were the stories that turned out differently than they expected? And if that’s the case, what had been their original plan? Was Elena originally going to remain a vampire? Actually, no. Was Jeremy always going to come back from the dead? Again, not so much. We caught up with executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries to get a look back at seven of the biggest debates from the writers room over the past 100 episodes, as well as a glimpse into two storylines they never questioned and the real reason why the Originals are immortal (Hint: It wears a suit.).
