You can’t set your DVR for East Los High, one of the most popular shows among Hispanic youth. But you can stream the show online on your laptop or tablet (or even TV, if you insist)—now in its second season on Hulu—as a nod to not only the changing nature of television, but as a telling insight on how a streaming content company has managed to build a sizeable audience among one of television’s most coveted demographics: Latino 20-somethings.

With Gone Girl well on its way to the big screen, Gillian Flynn has now set her sights on television.
EW has confirmed that Entertainment One Television is currently working to turn Flynn’s debut novel, Sharp Objects, into a one-hour serialized drama. Sharp Objects follows Camille Preaker, a reporter who leaves her stay at a mental hospital and is immediately thrust back into the world with a tough assignment that forces her to return home to cover a murder involving two preteen girls. Suddenly back in her old room, surrounded by a mother and half-sister she hasn’t exactly kept up with, Camille has to look into her own past to discover the story in front of her.
Flynn will executive produce the show alongside Jason Blum and Charles Layton. Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Marti Noxon will write the script and serve as showrunner.
Just 99 episodes ago, Pretty Little Liars fans were introduced to the world of Alison DiLaurentis and the four Liars she left behind when she “died.” Five seasons later, we’ve followed those Liars through journeys of love, loss, betrayal, and lots of confusion, all of which peaked when Alison came back from the dead in season four.
However, Ali’s transition back to life in Rosewood has been anything but smooth. Aria accidentally killed Shana, someone murdered Mrs. D, and we still have no idea who’s in Alison’s grave. So with a number of mysteries left to solve, what will the show’s 100th episode hold for viewers? Well, we can promise a few familiar faces, at least one familiar place, and of course, another Twitter-worthy reveal.
EW was on set for the shooting of the 100th episode, and we sat down with the cast and executive producers to talk about what viewers can expect from the show’s 100th hour. READ FULL STORY
Finding a large enough gap in the respective calendars of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman so they can film more episodes of Sherlock has been no elementary task for the show’s producers over the past couple of years, given the pair’s increasingly full schedules. But Fargo and Hobbit star Freeman has told the U.K. newspaper The Telegraph it “looks pretty likely” the pair will reunite early next year to shoot a special Christmas episode of the beloved Conan Doyle adaptation. “I’m speaking off-message here [but] I think that might be for next Christmas,” said the actor, who plays Holmes’ detective partner and verbal punching bag, Dr. Watson, on the show. “That’s what I understand.”
If you tuned in to tonight’s return of Under the Dome on CBS, you discovered that not one but two characters met their maker in the episode. EW talked to one of the dearly departed actors about the surprise death — and who (or what) may have been responsible.
But first, SPOILER ALERT! Stop here if you haven’t seen the episode. READ FULL STORY
If this image creeps you out, you’re not alone.
FX has learned that some people just can’t stomach billboards that promote The Strain, the cable net’s new horror show that’s based on the book trilogy by director Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim) and author Chuck Hogan.
Turns out the only way FX could worm itself out of this predicament was to just yank ‘em. “We are in the process of replacing the key art for The Strain on outdoor media in several locations,” according to a network statement. 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.
Modern Family’s Julie Bowen and Olympian Lindsey Vonn are among the guest judges who will decide who’s in and who’s out when Project Runway returns for a 13th season.
Previous contestants Ken Laurence (Season 12), Alexander Pope (Season 12), and Amanda Valentine (Season 11) will post their portfolios on Instagram to have the chance to compete against this season’s designers, who are: READ FULL STORY
True Blood‘s final season begins this Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO, and a warning to viewers: Prepare for major Blood-shed. “It’s the final season of True Blood, so gone are the days where we pull our punches,” teases showrunner Brian Buckner. “Heads are gonna roll.”
The premiere picks up immediately after the events of the season 6 finale, which found Bellefleur’s Bar and Grill under siege by a group of Hep-V-infected vamps. “Mayor Merlotte, Sheriff Bellefleur, and Jason Stackhouse are going to have their hands full, because not only do they have to fend off these H-vamps, but also they have to fend off this [Bon Temps] vigilante group,” he explains. In a deliberate nod to Hurricane Katrina, adds Buckner, Blood‘s tiny Louisiana town will be left on its own in the wake of the Hep-V outbreak, getting no support or protection from the government.
