We’re just a couple of months away from the premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel. After last year’s disappointing Freak Show, I’m optimistic Ryan Murphy will rebound with the fifth season. He’s off to a great start by corralling a fantastic group of returning alums and newbies. He had me at Lady Gaga and then sealed the deal with Naomi Campbell.

Several of the cast sat down with TV Guide to discuss their characters. Angela Bassett, Finn Wittrock, Cheyenne Jackson, Kathy Bates, Matt Bomer are just a few who divulge juicy tidbits about the upcoming season. Check out the videos below. AHS: Hotel premieres Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 10/9c on FX.

The CW Developing Series Based On The Notebook

In: Donovan, TV Shows
the-notebook-cw-series

Romance is in the air over at The CW offices. The network is reportedly developing a weekly series based on Nicholas Sparks’ bestselling novel, The Notebook.

They better tread carefully as not to tarnish the legacy of the beloved film adaptation. Finding as charismatic leads as Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams is going to be a monumental task, especially ones who can emulate their scorching chemistry.

The Notebook Official Logline

“This series will follow the romantic journey of the two beloved central characters Noah and Allie, at the outset of their blossoming relationship as they build their lives and their future together against the backdrop of the racial politics, economic inequities, and social mores of post-World War II of the late 1940s in North Carolina.”

Do you think a series based on The Notebook is a good idea? Personally, I sense major trainwreck. Hopefully, this never gets off the ground. The movie was so good, anything will pale in comparison. Agree or disagree? Check out some memorable scenes from the film below.

Without a doubt, talk of the Twin Peaks revival dominated Showtime’s TCA panel. It was revealed that David Lynch will shoot the series continuously as a movie, and later cut it into episodes. Initially, nine episodes were ordered but could be more depending on how long the shoot goes for. Though a 2017 premiere date is slated, it could be ready for 2016. Again, it all depends on Lynch who has complete creative control over the project.

In other Showtime-related news, the network revealed the renewals of Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex. Both series will head into fourth seasons. Meanwhile, the network also dropped the first trailer for its new offering, Billions.

Damian Lewis returns to the network in a complex drama about power politics in the world of New York high finance. Paul Giamatti and Malin Akerman also star in the show. Akerman looks like she’s playing one tough be-yotch. Love it. Check out the clip below.

Billions Show Synopsis

“Billions is a bold, contemporary drama that explores worlds of ultra-wealth, influence and corruption as personified in two highly ambitious opposing figures: hard-charging, blue-blooded, politically connected U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and brilliant, calculating, blue-collar billionaire hedge fund king, Bobby ‘Axe’ Axelrod (Damian Lewis). Set amongst the Machiavellian machinations of New York City power politics and finance, Billions weaves an intricate narrative featuring a high-stakes game of predator-versus-prey.”

new-edition-mini-series

BET announced it’s developing a miniseries about New Edition. The three-night event will be co-produced by members of the 80s boyband, but with one glaring omission. Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant have all signed on but not Bobby Brown despite being one of the founding members of the Boston act.

“It’s been a long time coming and that time is finally here! Now that we have signed the deal, New Edition’s journey will be captured in a three night miniseries to tell our life story through our very own eyes,” New Edition said in a statement. The boy band added, “We are happy to have New Edition Enterprises collaborate with BET Networks’ Debra Lee and Stephen Hill along with Jesse Collins Entertainment. From our beginning in the Orchard Park Projects in Boston to Hollywood and everything in between, just like The Temptations and Jackson 5 – we are ready to retrace our footsteps and show everyone how we got here. For the fans all over the world, this one’s for you.”

With the actual members on board, the project should be entertaining. The TLC biofilm on VH1 was successful due to T-Boz and Chilli working behind the scenes. I expect a similar outcome here. Production is set to begin in early 2016 with a premiere later that year. Check out some of my favorite tracks from New Edition below.

For those worried about the eye candy deficiency due to Colton Haynes exiting Arrow. Fear not. Producers have added an equally sculpted stud to fill the void for Season 4.

Before we get to that hot juicy ass, let’s talk about another new addition. Rutina Wesley of True Blood fame heads to Starling City for a multi-episode arc as reported by The Wrap. Meanwhile, Suburgatory and Enlisted alum Parker Young joins the series as a potential love interest for Thea Queen (Willa Holland). Not a bad rebound ;)

If you’re not familiar with all of Parker’s assets, check out a few shirtless pics below, along with his memorable car wash scene from Suburgatory. Holy hotness.

Somehow I missed this juicy morsel from last week. Better late than never I suppose.

With the runaway success of Empire, it’s no surprise that FOX is looking to expand, excuse the pun, its empire. Lee Daniels is reportedly working on a companion series for the breakout hip-hop drama. Working title Star will take place in Atlanta with the music business also serving as the backdrop for the Dreamgirls-inspired series.

“Like Empire, it’s set against the backdrop of the music business but from a very different perspective,” Fox chairman and CEO Gary Newman said. “Set Atlanta, it’s about three girls who come together to form a band and it’s about their rise to the top in a very challenging business. It’s the perspective of the artist and, without getting too much into the storyline, one of our characters is rising out of poverty and there is a a lot from Lee’s own life that’s baked into the DNA of this project.”

From the man who gave us Jurassic Park, ER, Congo and Disclosure comes a fascinating new HBO series. Based on a 1973 film of the same name by Michael Crichton, Westworld is being described “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” It takes place in a futuristic theme park called Westworld. J.J. Abrams is one of the co-producers.

Anthony Hopkins plays Dr. Robert Ford, the brilliant creative director of the theme park. James Marsden is a newly arrived gunslinger in pursuit of a local beauty played by Evan Rachel Wood. She recently discovers her entire life is an elaborately constructed lie. Thandie Newton, Rodrigo Santoro, Jeffrey Wright and Shannon Woodward round out the cast.

Check out the first teaser below. Saddle up for a trippy futuristic ride.
