  • 22:05 - Limitless Interview with Producer Alexander Kurtzman & Director Marc Webb
    Thanks to darthlocke4 for the heads up.
    Asked what about Limitless' central conceit lends itself to more storytelling, executive producer Alex Kurtzman enthused to Blastr, "I love the movie, but it doesn't dig too deeply into the moral repercussions of the drug. I think what we were excited about was creating a scenario where a guy, through the best of intentions, ended up in a situation where he has to continue taking this drug. Brian is in a situation that isn't of his own choosing. He really has a vise around his neck, and he has to lie to everyone around him. While, yes, there is wish fulfillment to the idea of 'I could have been a musician and I hoped it worked, but it none of it worked out and suddenly I'm going to exceed even my wildest dreams,' how much of that is him and how much is the drug? I think it's a question the show will ask of him over and over again. And that feels like a much longer-term goal than the movie and its two-hour length could really tackle."

    Director Marc Webb added that Brian Sinclair's lack of direction in life makes him the perfectly relatable hero for so many who can't figure out their true potential. "I think [his plight] is something we as humans are always searching for, and when you find that, it often presents challenges that you do not foresee."

  • 21:00 - BBC Three announces cast for Thirteen, original drama series by Marnie Dickens
    Thirteen - an original 5x60 drama series written by rising star Marnie Dickens - confirms a new and exciting cast led by Jodie Comer (Doctor Foster, My Mad Fat Diary), alongside Aneurin Barnard (The Scandalous Lady W, War And Peace), Richard Rankin (From Darkness), Valene Kane (The Fall, ‘71), Natasha Little (Wolf Hall), Stuart Graham (Our World War, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Joe Layton (Tatau), Katherine Rose Morley (Last Tango In Halifax), Eleanor Wyld (Misfits), Ariyon Bakare (Jonathan Strange And Mr Norrell) and Nicholas Farrell (Chariots of Fire, Bloody Sunday).

    Thirteen will be directed by Vanessa Caswill (My Mad Fat Diary, Flea) and China Moo-Young (Humans, Spotless) and was commissioned by Damian Kavanagh, Controller of BBC Three, and Ben Stephenson, ex-Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning and is produced by BBC In-house Drama Production, England.

    Damian Kavanagh, Controller of BBC Three, says: “The team Elizabeth has pulled together perfectly demonstrates how BBC Three is all about nurturing emerging UK talent and the most innovative ideas that appeal to young people.”

    Jodie Comer stars as Ivy Moxam, a 26-year-old woman who escapes from the cellar that's been her prison for the last thirteen years. Returning home to her family and to her life, this is only the beginning of the story.

    Writer Marnie Dickens says: “The characters of Thirteen have been in my head for a long time. To now see such an incredible cast bringing them to life is just brilliant.”

    Jodie Comer adds: “I am beyond excited to be working with the BBC as part of the cast of Thirteen. Marnie Dickens' writing is truly remarkable and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to bring Ivy to life. Imagine the most unimaginable happening. Life turning completely on its head, with the actions of one person affecting so many lives. We as humans, even though we doubt ourselves, have this amazing strength within us to cope in the most terrifying situations, and Marnie explores that so beautifully. With Vanessa Caswill’s vision and such a truly talented cast and crew, I cannot wait to introduce you all to this world that so often becomes people’s reality.”

    Thirteen explores how to pick up the threads of a life half-lived and how to survive as a family under the greatest pressure. How to feel again, chance love again. It is a psychological drama about who to trust when you can't even trust yourself. Ivy Moxam is a young girl. Ivy Moxam is a woman. Ivy Moxam is whoever you want her to be.

    Thirteen also stars: Kemi-Bo Jacobs, Melina Matthews, Chipo Chung, Colin Mace, Suzette Llewellyn and Charles Babalola.

    Elizabeth Kilgarriff, Executive Producer, adds: “Our announced cast feels very fresh, exciting and ambitious. Their talent and energy combined with Marnie’s gripping scripts will ensure Thirteen is a real treat for our BBC Three audience.”

    It is produced by BBC In-house Drama Production, England, executive produced by Elizabeth Kilgarriff and produced by Hugh Warren. Filming has begun in and around Bristol this week.

  • 11:20 - The Mindy Project - Season 4 - Freida Pinto to Guest in the Premiere
    The Mindy Project has tapped Freida Pinto to guest-star for its Hulu debut, EW has learned exclusively.

    Before you get confused and/or angry by the headline, Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) aren’t really dating new people when the show returns. Rather, The Mindy Project’s season premiere is inspired by the 1998 film Sliding Doors, exploring what Mindy’s life would be like if she wasn’t with Danny, but married to another man (Joseph Gordon-Levitt).

    Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) will play a version of herself that Danny is dating in the alternate reality.

    Season 4 of The Mindy Project will debut on Hulu later this year.

    Hulu's 11/22/63 continues to add to its impressive cast.

    Battle Creek alum Josh Duhamel has joined the cast of the Hulu miniseries from J.J. Abrams and Stephen King, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

    Based on King's best-seller, 11/22/63 is described as a thriller in which high school English teacher Jake Epping (James Franco) travels back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. But his mission is threatened by Lee Harvey Oswald (played by Daniel Webber), falling in love and the past itself … which doesn’t want to be changed.

    Duhamel will play Frank Dunning, the father of Jake's student Harry Dunning (played by youngster Jack Fulton and Leon Rippy), in 1960s Kentucky. Frank is the rakish town butcher, a ladies' man with an effortless smile that everyone welcomes — except Jake, the only man who knows the full violence of which Frank is capable.
