Fox orders horror comedy 'Scream Queens' from 'Glee' creators for 2015

Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the minds behind American Horror Story, are staying in the scary business: Fox has ordered a new horror-comedy called Scream Queens from the pair and their Glee co-creator Ian Brennan.

Queens is an anthology series much like AHS and the first season, to debut in Fall 2015 with 15 episodes, will be about a college campus rocked by murders; latter seasons will be in different locations and have different plots. READ FULL STORY

Elena agrees to leave town with Stefan in 'Vampire Diaries' sneak peek

For five seasons, The Vampire Diaries took place in Mystic Falls, Virginia, where animal attacks were a common occurrence and the Founding Families had more than one secret up their sleeves. But thanks to the Travelers spell that ended season five, vampires can no longer enter Mystic Falls—which means that suddenly, the small town is no longer prone to animal attacks, and its population has decreased by at least 15 percent.

Most importantly, for some of our favorite supernatural characters, it means starting over. Although Elena, Alaric, and Caroline can simply run off to Whitmore, Stefan made a choice to relocate to Georgia. And in an exclusive sneak peek from this week’s episode, he tries to return to his “new home” when Elena intervenes.

Elena isn’t quite buying Stefan’s “it’s easy to start over” bit, so she makes a deal with him. If she tags along and is convinced that he can really start over, she’ll let him stay away. If not, she’s dragging his hero hair back to Mystic Falls. But according to the episode description, Stefan’s process of starting over will get interrupted by an unexpected visitor.

'The Walking Dead' star Michael Cudlitz talks about the big mission to Washington, D.C.

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead.]

The man is persistent, give him that. Sgt. Abraham Ford wants to get to Washington, D.C. and is pretty insistent on recruiting Rick and Co. to join them. But, as we saw on Sunday’s “Strangers” episode of The Walking Dead, that persistence may have paid off as Judith kinda, sorta convinced daddy to sign on. However, there is now the whole Gareth situation to consider. After losing Terminus to zombies, Gareth and a few of his cannibalistic cohorts kidnapped Bob and feasted on his leg. How much is Abraham responsible for that since he and the others would not let Rick go back and finish the job? We asked the man who plays Abraham, Michael Cudlitz, about that, the mission to D.C. and more. (Also check out our interview with ‘Walking Dead’ star Steven Yeun.) READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' star Steven Yeun on if Glenn would have kept Tara's secret from Maggie

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead.]

Blame it on Glenn. Well, not just Glenn. But blame it on the whole group for not letting Rick go back and finish off the Terminus folks when they had the chance. As a result, Gareth is now finishing off a tasty meal consisting of Bob Stookey’s leg. But therein lies the dilemma of season 5 of The Walking Dead. How far is too far in a world now dealing almost exclusively in extremes? We chatted with the man who plays Glenn, Steven Yeun, to get his thoughts on season 5’s first two episodes, whether they were wrong to not exterminate the “Termites” and whether Glenn would have kept Tara’s secret had not she not revealed it herself to Maggie. (Also make sure to read our interview with ‘Walking Dead’ star Michael Cudlitz.) READ FULL STORY

Susan Sarandon to play Marilyn Monroe's mother in Lifetime miniseries

Susan Sarandon is coming to a small screen near you.

EW has confirmed that Sarandon has joined Marilyn, Lifetime’s upcoming four-hour miniseries. Based J. Randy Taraborrelli’s New York Times bestseller, The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe, the miniseries promises to reveal “what the iconic superstar succeeded in hiding from an all-too-invasive world.”

Sarandon will play Monroe’s mentally ill mother. The official description adds, “Marilyn is both the personification of sex, whose first marriage ironically collapses because of her frigidity, and a fragile artist who seeks the approval and protection of men. But after tumultuous marriages with Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller, she realizes she has the strength to stand on her own. She becomes the Face and Voice of an era, yet wants most of all to be someone’s mother and someone’s little girl. She’s the Marilyn you haven’t seen before, the artist who, by masking the truth with an image, gives her greatest performance.”

Marilyn will be written by Stephen Kronish (24) and directed by Laurie Collyer. It’s expected to premiere in 2015.
