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.

As most of you know, inexplicably I’m a huge fan of Pitbull. I don’t understand it myself, but I do love Mr. Worldwide. Definitely a guilty pleasure.

Naturally, the “Fun” singer signing on for Empire Season 2 excites me. He’ll play himself to perform the song “No Doubt About It” with Jamal (Jussie Smollett).

Pitbull is just one of numerous guest stars dropping by for the FOX hip-hop drama’s sophomore run. Chris Rock, Kelly Rowland, Marisa Tomei, Mariah Carey and Ludacris are just some of the big names popping up.

Speaking of the guest stars, a few of them are shown in a new trailer for the upcoming season. Check it out below. I’m so excited. Hopefully, Empire doesn’t suffer the dreaded sophomore slump.

FOX Officially Orders Prison Break Event Series

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The X-Files isn’t the only series from the FOX vault that the network is reviving. Prison Break is rising once again as well. After months of speculation, FOX officially confirmed that the prison drama is returning in 2016 as a 10-episode event series.

Honestly, the original series should’ve been an event series as well. It went on for far too long. Find out below if the brothers are coming back or not.

Empire already has an arsenal of high-wattage stars dropping by for Season 2. Without a doubt, Mariah Carey is the biggest name of them all.

Creator Lee Daniels broke the news during Carey’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony this week. FOX has yet to confirm this casting news, but I’m pretty sure it’s a done deal if Daniels spoke publicly about it.

This isn’t the first time Daniels and Carey have collaborated. They previously worked with each other on Tennessee, Precious and The Butler. No word on what role Mariah will play on the show, but please God, let it involve a threeway catfight with Naomi Campbell and Taraji P. Henson.

Confirmed guest stars for Season 2 include Adam Busch, Andre Royo, Kelly Rowland, Marisa Tomei, Adam Rodriguez, Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz and Alicia Keys. Empire returns September 23 on FOX with an expanded season of 18 episodes. Excited to see Mariah on the small screen? Sound off below.


Without a doubt, the best part of the first season of The Leftovers was Justin Theroux jogging. That flopping thing between his legs had a mind of its own. No wonder Jennifer Aniston is always smiling ;) Fingers crossed, producers continue to let the 43-year-old actor go commando.

The Leftovers returns for its sophomore run on October 4. With last year covering the events of the source book in its entirety, the second season is completely original material. The action shifts from Mapleton, New York to a suburb in Texas, named Miracle. Turns out the Texan suburb experienced absolutely zero Sudden Departures. That is until the Garvey family arrives.

Joining Theroux for another round are Amy Brenneman, Carrie Coon, Liv Tyler, Margaret Qualley and Chris Zylka. New additions include Regina King, Kvin Carroll Janel Moloney and Family Matters‘ Darius McCrary. Check out the first trailer below.

The Leftovers Season 2

More than three years ago, 2% of the world’s population inexplicably vanished. 140 million people, gone in an instant. No country, no state, no city was spared, except for one small town in eastern Texas. Population: 9261. Departures: Zero. This is the setting for a tale of two families: the Garveys, who have moved to this special place, and whose lives were forever changed by the Departure, and the Murphys, a local family, who seem to have been spared from an event that shook the rest of the world.
