Meg Ryan signs deal to star in and executive produce NBC sitcom

The Peacock will have what Meg’s having.

EW has confirmed that NBC has ordered a pilot starring onetime rom-com queen Meg Ryan, who will both headline and executive produce the half-hour comedy. (The Hollywood Reporter first posted the news.) Here’s the official logline:

“A sunny, devoted and desperately non-confrontational single mom (Meg Ryan) decides to return to her New York publishing house where she was once a brilliant editor to find that she now works for Brenda, he neurotic 30 year old boss who was once her former intern. Now Rose must find a way to keep her boss, her teenage kids, her almost ex-husband and her meddlesome mother in law all happy, which results in her overcomplicating every situation and somehow always making it worse.”

So… Meg Saves the World, then?

Miss Congeniality writer Marc Lawrence penned the script and will co-executive produce, alongside Ryan and Ryan’s manager Jane Berliner. If the series is picked up, it will mark Ryan’s first starring role on TV since the short-lived 1985 western Wildside – though the Golden Globe nominee has appeared sporadically in guest roles on shows including Curb Your Enthusiasm and, more recently, Showtime’s Web Therapy.

'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland': Alice and the Knave of Hearts preview the premiere

The Wonderland of ABC’s new Once Upon a Time spinoff is a perilous place filled with fire-breathing dragonflies, gooey “mallow marsh” swamps, bloodthirsty CGI beasts, and at least one murderous, well-coiffed queen. (It wouldn’t be a Once spinoff without one of those.)

Luckily, the show’s grown-up Alice  doesn’t have to navigate these treacherous environs alone. When she returns to the fantasy land in tonight’s series premiere, she’s joined by a trusty sidekick: The Knave of Hearts, a witty rogue with a mysterious past. Together, they’ll fight the wicked forces of the Red Queen and Jafar — yes, that Jafar — as they search for Cyrus, a genie from Agrabah who happens to be Alice’s one true love.

Alice and the Knave — a.k.a. Will — make a great team. So do English-Australian actress Sophie Lowe and English actor Michael Socha, who respectively bring both characters to life. Seriously, just look at these two in action:


'Tomorrow People' EP: The show is more than pretty people with powers

Just as audiences have been told for ages not to judges books by their covers, Tomorrow People executive producer Phil Klemmer is hoping people don’t judge his new show by others’ perceptions.

“I think that you know there’s a couple of things that makes this different than pretty people with powers,” he says, before quipping, “There will be ugly people with powers, and there will be evil people with powers.” READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' boss previews team without Ziva: 'It's going to take time for our characters to move on'

Ziva has left the building. (Or, if you want to get technical, she never returned to the building.)

But even though we’ve seen the last of Cote de Pablo for the foreseeable future, there’s plenty of action to come on NCIS, according to executive producer Gary Glasberg. Part of it, he says, will be seen in tonight’s episode, which he’ll give you scoop on in our interview below, among many other things…

'The Originals': Charles Michael Davis talks flashbacks, a young Marcel, and why he's Team Elijah

Last Thursday, viewers were introduced to The Originals, a show about the world’s oldest family of vampires and one sibling’s burning desire to rule the French Quarter … again. And although the show serves as a spinoff of The CW’s hit show The Vampire Diaries, there’s still plenty of back story to be explored, particularly among the show’s new characters. And in episode 2, “House of the Rising Son,” it looks like we’re going to learn a lot more about Marcel, the man Klaus calls his “protégé” and all of New Orleans calls “king.”

We will get our first look into Marcel’s past with the Original family tonight when The Originals makes its debut at its series regular time slot on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. But before you run off to set your DVRs, we got to chat with Marcel himself, Charles Michael Davis, about what this episode holds, Marcel’s back story, and which Original he prefers:

Kim Raver, William Devane to return for '24: Live Another Day'

Amazon Instant Video greenlights three new half-hour pilots

Amazon Instant Video is ready for round two. After launching its first round of comedy pilots last April, Amazon just announced that it has given the greenlight to launch three new half-hour pilots. Customers will then be invited to watch the pilots and help decide which of the three they want to go into full-season production on Prime Instant Video and Amazon’s LOVEFiLM in the UK in early 2014.

The first of the three pilots, titled Mozart in the Jungle, is written by Oscar-nominated Roman Coppola (Moonrise Kingdom), actor Jason Schwartzman (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), and Tony-nominated Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher). Based on the memoir by Blair Tindall, it tells the story of what happens backstage at the symphony. Sex, drugs, and … classical music? You better believe it.

The second pilot, The Outlaws, is written by Jeremy Garelick (The Break-Up) and Jon Weinbach and goes behind-the-scenes of a professional football team, both from the perspectives of the players and those sitting in the office. Former NFL player (and host of Live! with Kelly and Michael) is also attached as part of the creative team.

'Criminal Minds' surprise: Paget Brewster to return in 200th episode

Emily Prentiss is coming back to the BAU…for one (very special) episode.

CBS announced today that former Criminal Minds star Paget Brewster, who exited the series last year, will return for a guest appearance in the show’s upcoming 200th episode.

“Our 200th episode is going to be a special show,” executive producer Erica Messer said in a release. “We can’t imagine telling this story without Paget being present.”

As previously reported, the milestone hour takes a glimpse into the past and sheds light onto what happened to JJ Jareau (A.J. Cook) during her year away from the BAU. It will also prove valuable in the team’s efforts to solve a present day case.

The episode will air later this season.
