Niecy Nash joins 'The Mindy Project'

Is there such a thing as too many funny people on one show? Well, we’re about to find out when Niecy Nash brings her talents to The Mindy Project.

EW has confirmed that Nash will join the show’s third season in a recurring role as Dr. Jean Fishman, a rival of Mindy’s—or as Mindy Kaling tweeted, her “work nemesis“—and the new chief of Shulman & Associates’ admitting hospital. TVLine, which first reported the news, described Fishman as “a take-no-prisoners type” who “also happens to be a lesbian.” And considering we know that Mindy kisses a girl this season, could Nash’s introduction be related?

We’ll find out when The Mindy Project returns for its third season on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox.

Co-creators of 'Life on Mars' reunite for new BBC America show

PHARAOH-GRAHAM.jpg

Ashley Pharaoh and Matthew Graham, co-creators and writer of Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, and Eternal Law, are pairing up once again to write a new series, titled The Living and the Dead, for BBC America and BBC One.

The new series will be set in Somerset, England, in 1888, focusing on “a land and a community on the edge of monumental change, on the great hinge between ancient traditional ways and an industrial, scientific future,” according to a press release. Furthermore, the show is about “a land of ghosts and myths, poltergeists and demons—if there was ever a time for those ghosts to rise out of the ground, this would be that time. At the heart of this small community is Nathan Appleby, a reluctant gentleman farmer who is obsessed with proving the existence of the afterlife.”

The new original drama will follow Appleby as he investigates hauntings and all things paranormal/ghostly until one question could end his work: “Will Nathan’s interest in the occult begin to threaten his family, his livelihood and even his sanity?”

“We are as excited about this show as anything since Life On Mars and Ashes to Ashes—we want it to be moving, tender, sensual…and very, very scary,” Pharaoh and Graham said in a press release.

The Living and the Dead will shoot in the West Country of England next year. No casting announcements have been made as of yet.

'Big Brother:' Zach talks Zankie and says 'I am completely 100% heterosexual'

Zach Rance wanted to be noticed this summer on Big Brother. That much was clear. Whether he was parading around in that goofy pink hat, starting a showmance with Frankie (even though he says he is straight), or calling other contestants a “fruit loop dingus,” Zach liked to be noticed. Maybe he should have played a little more under the radar because his fellow alliance members had finally had enough and evicted him from the Big Brother house last night. Then, with a chance to reenter the game in a jury competition, he fell short, ending his dream of emerging as the winner. We were unable to chat with Zach because he is back sequestered on the jury, but we were able to sneak a few questions to him via email and here’s what that lunatic had to say. READ FULL STORY

'Big Brother:' Julie Chen on her live ice bucket challenge and the death of Zankie

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Okay, obviously we need to start with the Ice Bucket Challenge. How nervous were you about doing that on live television and how did it feel when Will Arnett dumped that water on you?
JULIE CHEN: I was sooooo excited to do this on live television. It’s the only way you can’t back out or run away….you must commit. I was adamant that the bucket had to be equal parts ice and water and to be very full. Unfortunately, most of the ice melted by the time the bucket was poured and that made the water temperature beyond cold. I also asked that the bucket really go straight over my head for full effect. It felt great and fun and funny for about the first 3 seconds and then it was like…am I going to catch pneumonia?!?!?  This is NOT fun anymore…it’s freezing and I am shaking. But well worth it for a great cause. READ FULL STORY
