FOX Taps Naomi Campbell For Empire

In: Donovan, TV Shows
fox-empire-naomi-campbell

One of FOX’s more promising new shows is Lee Daniels’ hip-hop drama, Empire. Sadly, it doesn’t premiere until early 2015. With this latest addition, the wait is going to be even more unbearable.

Naomi Campbell is set to recur as Camilla, “an alluring woman involved in a steamy affair with the much younger potential heir to his father’s throne, Hakeem (Bryshere Gray), over whom she exercises considerable influence.”

She joins a distinguished cast including past Oscar nominees Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson and Gabourey Sidibe. Howard plays Lucious Lyon, the head of a music empire whose three sons and ex-wife all battle for his throne.

“Naomi is a beautiful actress. Underrated in my mind,” Daniels said in a statement. “She will be wonderful as Camilla. I am truly thrilled to have one of my close friends join us.”

Excited to have Campbell grace television screens? Intrigued by the show’s hip-hop premise and backdrop? Check out the trailer below and weigh in afterward.

fall-2014-ratings-gotham

Arguably the most-hyped show coming into this new season has to be Gotham. FOX’s Batman prequel didn’t disappoint in terms of ratings. It notched 8 million viewers and a 3.2 rating among the coveted 18-49 demo. Definitely solid given it was against two back-to-back episodes of The Big Bang Theory. Only time will tell if the show can maintain or build upon its series premiere numbers.

Also debuting well was Scorpion over at CBS. It generated 14 million viewers and a 3.3 rating. No doubt aided greatly by it’s cushy lead-in- The Big Bang Theory double header. I don’t typically watch shows on the eye network, but this one has me intrigued. I can’t wait to check it out when I get back from my Hawaiian vacay.

Unfortunately for ABC, the winning streak for freshman shows ended with Forever. The show did alright with 8.3 million viewers but only managed to snag 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo. That number represents a 32 percent decrease from Castle which occupied the post-Dancing With The Stars slot last season. Don’t expect a long life for this immortality drama.

Last time we were in Lima, Sue Slyvester (Jane Lynch) had finally successfully shut down the Glee club. Having failed in becoming a TV actress, Rachel (Lea Michele) returns to Lima to regroup and figure out her next steps. When she discovers New Directions’ fate, she vows to reinstate the group that helped launch her career. Perhaps in honor of Finn (Corey Monteith), Rachel will now lead it.

What does this mean for Mr. Schu (Matthew Morrison)? Apparently, he’ll have a surprising new gig as will fan favorites Blaine (Darren Criss) and Sam (Chord Overstreet) who also return back to Ohio from NYC. Find out who’s noticeably not listed as a series regular for the final season below.

One of Glee‘s most memorable characters is returning for the show’s final season. Former bully turned openly gay good guy Dave Karofsky (Max Adler) is set to appear in at least four of the series’ last 13 episodes. According to the Hollywood Reporter, he will have a major arc and cause some turmoil. Find out exactly what after reading Ryan Murphy’s tease about Season 6.

“The final season is really its own story and its own location, and while the New York stuff will be alive, the final season is not New York-centric at all,” Murphy said. “It really [will be] a lovely, fitting season that … dwells on the original people that were on the show and what happens to them and how they give back. That really is the last season. .… We’ll revisit some of the new kids that came and went. There’s a return of the Jane-Matt characters in a big way. It’s really interesting, a very sweet, satisfying ending to the story.”

What happens when two popular animated worlds collide? We will find out on Sunday, September 28 when The Simpsons kick off Season 26 with a special episode featuring fellow FOX animation domination cohorts, The Family Guy. Titled “The Simpsons Guy,” the episode will find the Griffin family invading the town of Springfield.

Surprisingly, when news broke out about the crossover episode, fans weren’t excited. The five-minute preview debuted at Comic-Con includes some jokes poking fun at fans criticisms.

If the Griffins weren’t enough for you, Bob from Bob’s Burgers also makes a cameo. Still wanting more? FOX also has a Futurama/Simpsons crossover episode planned for November. Check out the video preview below.

naya-rivera-glee-final-season

Rumors of Naya Rivera’s departure from Glee weren’t that greatly exaggerated. Months ago, rumors surfaced that Rivera and Lea Michele were clashing on set and as a result, Naya was cut from the season finale. Naturally, all parties shot down all reports.

Fast forward today and we official word. Rivera will return, but only on a recurring basis and not as a series regular. That should somewhat please Santana Lopez fans. Reportedly, the 27-year-old actress was the one who requested the change.

I’m not sure if I exactly buy it. What else does she have going on? Her recording career has stalled and she called off her engagement. However, she did make her film debut in the indie horror film, At The Devil’s Door, which debuted at South by Southwest earlier this year.

What do you think of Naya’s decision to not return as a series regular? With Glee sucking royally creatively last season, perhaps jumping off the musical ship is a savvy move. Sound off below.

FOX Cancels Hieroglyph Before Its Premiere

One of the more interesting new shows FOX presented during their upfronts was the Egyptian-themed drama Hieroglyph. The forthcoming 2014-2015 television season doesn’t begin until September but we already have our first official casualty. FOX has canceled the show before even its premiere. The network did the exact same thing last year with Jason Ritter’s Us & Them.

Writers for the show were told the unfortunate news on Monday. The show starred Max Brown, Reece Ritchie, Condola Rashad and John Rhys-Davies. The mid-season drama was reportedly not creatively coming together the way executives had hoped. Check out the show’s trailer below released by FOX a couple months ago.

The world of ancient Egypt – a time of magic, Pharaohs, gods and thieves – lives again in HIEROGLYPH, an exciting action-adventure series from creator/executive producer Travis Beacham (“Pacific Rim,” “Clash of the Titans”). When a dangerous scroll, The Book of Thresholds, is stolen from Egypt’s most secure vault, master thief AMBROSE (Max Brown, “Beauty And The Beast,” “MI-5”) is plucked from prison to track down the perpetrator. Having spent the past five years in the darkest of pits, Ambrose quickly learns that his prison cell might be safer than the dangerous new world in which he finds himself: Atum, the empire’s capital. Ambrose must answer to Pharaoh SHAI KANAKHT (Reece Ritchie, “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”), a god in the flesh, a young ruler with a cool charm and a violent, frightening temper. The question for Ambrose is not whether he can trust his new boss, but whether he can trust anyone. Also stalking the halls of the palace is NEFERTARI KANAKHT (Condola Rashad, “Smash,” “Steel Magnolias”), half-sister to the Pharaoh, whose relationship with Shai’s closest advisor, MAGISTER BEK (guest star Hal Ozsan, “90210”), masks her own designs for power. Finding few leads in the palace, Ambrose’s investigation takes him to the doorstep of his long-lost love, PESHET (Caroline Ford, “Lake Placid: The Final Chapter”), a magic-wielding adoratrice, a type of homespun priestess who uses her femininity as a portal to the gods…for the right price. Peshet was the keystone in Ambrose’s merry band of thieves, an impressionable youth with great knowledge of magic, a woman who never saw a lock for which she didn’t have an unlocking charm. Five years later, Peshet has left her old life behind in a pious pursuit of divine contact. Ambrose’s journey also leads him to old friends, such as VOCIFER (John Rhys-Davies, “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings,” “Raiders of the Lost Ark”), a peddler of mystical wares and Ambrose’s mentor. But he also comes face-to-face with foes both old and new, from RAWSER (Antony Bunsee, “EastEnders,” “Sex and the City 2”), the Pharaoh’s captain of the guard, who imprisoned him five years ago; to LOTUS TENRY (Kelsey Chow, “One Tree Hill”), a palace concubine and spy for a rival kingdom. As Ambrose unravels the mystery of The Book of Thresholds, he begins to see the extent to which sorcery has seeped into the halls of power in ancient Egypt, and how close it is to causing this great civilization’s downfall.
