When American Crime debuts in March, it will become one of the most topical new series to hit the air this season.
The new limited series from Oscar winner John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) follows the investigation and trial surrounding the racially-charged murder of a veteran in Modesto, Calif., from multiple perspectives, including characters portrayed by Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton, Regina King, Benito Martinez and Elvis Nolasco.
Though American Crime was developed before the recent surge of alleged police brutality, Ridley notes that viewers will find that the series will draw parallels to the events surrounding the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Eric Garner in New York and other such instances that have made headlines over the last few years.

Though it seems like Revenge is inching closer to concluding its story, ABC boss Paul Lee told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s winter TV previews that the series is still going strong.
In November, Fox decided to stop production on new series Red Band Society after it wrapped its original 13-episode order, which usually points to cancellation. Bad sign number two: Fox has officially scheduled the show’s final three episodes.
EW has confirmed that Fox will air Red Band Society‘s final three episodes beginning on Saturday, Jan. 31 at 9 p.m., followed by back-to-back episodes on Feb. 7 at 8 p.m.
Shannara, MTV’s new fantasy series based on the popular book series from Terry Brooks, has added John Rhys-Davies, best known for The Lord of the Rings and Indiana Jones, to its cast.
The show, which follows the Shannara family thousands of years after civilization’s destruction, has previously cast Ivana Baquero as Eretria, Poppy Drayton as Amberle, Austin Butler as Wil Ohmsford, Manu Bennett as Allanon, and Aaron Jakubenko as Ander.
Rhys-Davies will join the cast as King Eventine. According to a release, he is Amberle’s grandfather who has ruled the kingdom of Arborlon for decades. “Eventine has done questionable things to keep the Four Lands at peace, but when his beloved granddaughter is chosen to fulfill a dangerous destiny, his path is changed as well,” the release said.
Shannara begins filming in New Zealand in February.
The Blacklist is stocking up on guest stars for its upcoming two-parter that kicks off following the Super Bowl.

The kids aren’t done cooking quite yet. Fox has just announced that it’s ordered a fourth season of MasterChef Junior.
In addition to the new season, the show will also add a new face: Christina Tosi, the owner of New York City’s Milk Bar, will join Gordon Ramsay and Graham Elliott on both the MasterChef and MasterChef Junior judging panels.
“MasterChef has been one of my favorite shows since it began, and like so many others, I fell in love with MasterChef Junior,” Tosi said in a press release. “I’m incredibly humbled by the opportunity and excited to pay forward all that I owe to learning what you’re made of in the home kitchen, and putting your neck on the line to show what you’ve got to the rest of the world!”
Production on MasterChef Junior‘s fourth season will begin this spring, with Tosi first appearing on season six of MasterChef, which will air this summer.
MasterChef Junior airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
When Zeek was rushed to the hospital in last week’s Parenthood, fans expected tears of sadness. What they didn’t expect were … tears of shock? When Sarah found Hank outside the hospital, it was evident that being around her family had made him think, but she had no idea that he was about to propose.
So when Hank did pop the question, Sarah didn’t have an answer to give him. Instead, she went back inside, and the two of them agreed to talk about it later. EW has an exclusive sneak peek at this week’s episode, in which Sarah prepares for that chat by doing some Pilates in the park with her younger sister—and then spilling the beans. Julia’s way of helping: making a pro-con list, of course.

Nurse Jackie is ready for its final shift.
Though Jackie (Edie Falco) was arrested during the season finale, a promo for the Showtime series’ final season showed that the pill-popping addict will be back at work thanks to a lawsuit for wrongful termination, though she will have to earn the trust of her peers and family back. It’s become a bit of a running theme for Nurse Jackie in that the titular character has lied and schemed her way out of nearly every worst-case scenario and has lived to tell the tale. But will she be so lucky when the series comes to a close this year?
It goes without saying that Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) is far from a damsel in distress. Though Captain America (Chris Evans) made quite an impact on her, she is not defined by the men in her life. With that being said, however, a scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier reveals that Cap saved over 1,000 men during a rescue mission, one of which was the man that would go on to be Peggy’s husband.
Who is this mystery man? Marvel’s Agent Carter will provide a bit of a guessing game in that regard. “There’s fun in trying to figure out: Who is the guy she married?” executive producer Michele Fazekas tells EW.
