In TNT’s upcoming undercover-espionage thriller Legends, Sean Bean plays Martin Odum, a deep-cover operative who’s uniquely adept at adopting new identities. Perhaps predictably, there are an awful lot of people who want to kill him—and that’s the least of his problems. The show debuts on August 13, but EW is excited to share an exclusive new trailer for the series, which hints at the show’s twisty serialized arc, plus a look at Legends co-stars Ali Larter, Tina Majorino, Steve Harris, and Morris Chestnut. Yes, Sean Bean says, “Move, and I’ll blow your teeth out.” No, he’s not joking. READ FULL STORY

The O.C.’s Melinda Clarke has signed on guest star in two episodes in the third season of TNT’s Dallas, The Wrap reports.
Clarke will assume the role of Tracy Lawton, a character who was introduced in the 12th season of the original series and was played by Beth Toussaint. In the original series, McKay was introduced in 1988 as a love interest for Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy), and it was later revealed that she was in fact the daughter of Ewing’s rival Carter McKay (George Kennedy).
Since leaving The O.C., Clarke has guest starred on The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, HBO’s Entourage, and was a series regular on the recently canceled Nikita, which ran on The CW for four seasons.
Clarke will make her debut in the September 3 episode of Dallas‘s third season, which resumes on August 18.
In addition to renewing Conan O’Brien’s late-night talk show and revealing a slate of new shows – including a Firestarter sequel series — as part of its upfront presentation to advertisers Wednesday, TNT also released trailers for several of its upcoming new shows. There’s a TV-sized, internationally produced version of The Transporter films, a series version of its The Librarian adventure films called The Librarians (starring Noah Wyle), and two new original dramas: The Edward Burns police show Public Morals and the Jennifer Beals supernatural thriller Proof.
Transporter will premiere this fall, The Librarians this winter, and Proof and Public Morals next year.All four trailers are below: READ FULL STORY
A Stephen King-inspired series is headed to TNT. The cable network is developing The Shop, a sequel to King’s 1980 bestseller Firestarter.
The drama centers on the insidious agency responsible for kidnapping and attempting to exploit the psychokinetic powers of a young girl named Charlie McGee in the original story. Now it’s 20 years later and Charlie has been tracked down by one of The Shop’s former members, Henry Talbot, who introduces her to a group of people with their own unique abilities. From the announcement: “It turns out The Shop is very much alive, bigger and badder than ever, and its dark experiments are unleashing terrifying new entities on the world. It’s now up to Talbot, Charlie and the rest of the team to find The Shop and destroy it for good.”
The project is written by Robbie Thompson (Supernatural) and produced by James Middleton (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Jaime Paglia (Eureka) and Thompson.
In addition, TNT unveiled an explosive new tagline that’s quite fitting if The Shop ever goes to series: “TNT Drama. Boom.” Yup, that’s it. “‘Boom’ speaks to the experience we want to deliver to TNT viewers,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT. “It’s about the thrill of the chase, or overcoming impossible odds and winning the day; it’s about what keeps you on the edge of your seat, hands clenched, heart racing, waiting to see what happens next; it’s about the moment when it all goes ‘Boom!’ Most importantly, ‘Boom’ makes a promise to our audience about the kind of emotional, intense, exciting, funny, shocking, sexy and thrilling drama they should expect from TNT.”
Here’s the rest of TNT’s new series in development along with The Shop: READ FULL STORY
Post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama Falling Skies is coming back this summer with its fourth season, and its latest trailer promises that it’s going to be as crazy as ever.
The TNT series, executive produced by Steven Spielberg and created by Robert Rodat, follows the aftermath of the human race after a disastrous alien invasion and how one history professor (Noah Wyle) takes charge of the remaining (human) survivors.
Falling Skies returns June 22 at 10 p.m. ET on TNT. Watch the trailer below:
One year ago today, viewers watched their final hour of TNT’s Southland. After five seasons of barely surviving (and once getting canceled by NBC), arguably one of the greatest cop shows of all time went out with a literal bang when fan favorite John Cooper was shot. It was the perfect cliffhanger to end the season, but not one that fans wanted to end the series. And the feeling was mutual among Southland‘s cast and crew.
Nearly a month later, when news spread that TNT canceled Southland, rumors began about a Southland movie, or at the very least, another episode to answer some burning questions: Is John Cooper alive? Can Ben Sherman be forgiven? Has Lydia really found happiness? And what is Sammy going to do next? But sadly, nothing ever came of the so-called “wrap-up” to the series. READ FULL STORY
Gone but not forgotten, Lee Thompson Young and his character will receive a proper sendoff in the fifth season of Rizzoli & Isles. The actor, who played detective Barry Frost on the TNT drama, committed suicide last August. On Wednesday, series star Angie Harmon tweeted that he will be honored in the first two episodes of season 5:
“I’m pretty much the go-to guy when it comes to sex stuff,” Josh Henderson says with a laugh. And suddenly, we’re happy Dallas is back!
When Season 3 kicks of Feb. 24 (9 p.m. ET on TNT), we quickly learn why Henderson’s John Ross is cheating on new wife Pamela (Julie Gonzalo) with Emma (Emma Bell), who you’ll recall also lives at Southfork. “He only knows how to do business one way, and that’s how JR taught him. It’s like history repeating itself,” Henderson says. “He basically justifies things: ‘I’m doin’ this for us.’ But what Pamela doesn’t know is what this is. He doesn’t want her to find out, obviously. But at the end of the day, stuff’s gonna come crashing down, and I think it’s gonna surprise the audience what ends up happening. It’s pretty dangerous.”
While Henderson jokes that the show is “gettin’ a little weird this season, in a good way,” executive producer Cynthia Cidre looks at it as turning things up to 11. “We decided, let’s just embrace the fun of it,” she says. “There’s definitely a lot more sex. We have a few fistfights, but no one’s landed in the pool yet.” (We also have one pregnancy and two shootings to look forward to.) READ FULL STORY
Those Atlanta housewives better watch their weaves, because a new group of women are looking to take over the South, one country-music-filled dream at a time.
TNT has unveiled the cast for its new show Private Lives of Nashville Wives, but from the looks of this exclusive sneak peek, it doesn’t look like these ladies have much to hide.
My eye is on Jenny, a Midwest girl. She really doesn’t like skinny bitches who never eat and think they’re fat. And the best part is she will say that to said skinny bitches’ faces (and make out with their husband). The other women, including Cuban American identical twin sisters, a former soap star and a Hooters girl who married a man 23 years her senior, don’t seem to like her very much (it’s probably because she’s not a blonde — instant housewife-outcast status).
Check out the butt-slapping, gun-blazing, guitar-playing preview below:

Fans of TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles can rejoice: Looks like Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles will be back for another summer. The juicy procedural that stars Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander consistently produced amazing numbers — it’s ranked #1 out of all summer’s basic cable television shows with an average of 8.4 million viewers.
TNT also renewed Major Crimes and Perception, along with the previously announced renewal of Falling Skies. Major Crimes averages more than 6.7 million viewers while Perception snags around 5.6 million viewers per episode.
Seems like there’s something golden in the water over at TNT.

EW has answers to your burning questions about tonight’s finale straight from showrunner Remi Aubuchon.

'Falling Skies' Comic-Con panel: Footage of what's next for Karen and how the cast sees their characters dying
The Project: TNT’s Falling Skies
The Panel: Noah Wyle (Tom), Moon Bloodgood (Anne), Connor Jessup (Ben), “the devastatingly handsome” Drew Roy (Hal) — as moderator and Star Trek: The Next Generation alum Wil Wheaton called the actor — Colin Cunningham (Pope), “the face-meltingly beautiful” Sarah Carter (Maggie) — another Wheaton descriptor — Doug Jones (Cochise), executive producer Remi Aubuchon, and director/executive producer Greg Beeman
Footage screened: The audience was treated to a brief clip from the upcoming July 21 episode. Karen has Tom on a torture table in a creepy, alien place, not unlike the harnessing factory from season 2. The professor-turned-soldier tells Karen, “Go to hell.” She leans in and whispers ominously, “If you haven’t noticed, this is hell.” Once Tom manages to get the upper hand in the situation, he puts a gun to Karen’s forehead. When he’s sure he’s gotten all the information about Anne and Lexi he can from her (which isn’t much), he shoots her point blank! That shocking end to the clip had the audience gasping in a collective “ohhhh!” followed by cheers. Let’s hope Hal’s ex-girlfriend-turned-formidable-alien-ally is really dead — or does Falling Skies have a trick up its sleeve?
At the end of the panel, there was also a screening of a sizzle reel with footage from the remaining episodes of season 3. Moment to most look forward to from that: A high-octane train sequence with Pope leaning off the side of the train, firing off a rifle at what only can be enemy aliens.
