Written by Homicide creator Attanasio, the drama revolves around the multi-generational members of a Mexican-American family with deep roots in San Diego intertwine personally and professionally due to their powerful careers in law enforcement.

Although Lynch is currently only slated for one episode, creators and showrunners Robert and Michelle King are leaving the door open for future return appearances. "Jane Lynch has a particularly fun role, so it would be lovely to have her back," Robert tells THR.

22:20 - Scalped - Gil Birmingham, Irene Bedard & Chaske Spencer Join WGN America's DC Comics Pilot

WGN America has rounded out its lead cast for drama pilot Scalped, which begins production next month, in Santa Fe, NM.

Gil Birmingham (Hell or High Water, Twilight films), Irene Bedard (The New World, Smoke Signals)and Chaske Spence (Sneaky Pete, Banshee) join previously announced Alex Meraz and Lily Gladstone in the project, which features a predominantly Native America cast.

Written by Doug Jung (Banshee) based on the DC graphic novel series written by Jason Aaron and illustrated by R.M. Guéra, Scalped is a modern-day crime story set in the world of a Native American reservation. The hourlong drama explores power, loyalty and spirituality in a community led by the ambitious Chief Lincoln Red Crow (Birmingham) as he reckons with Dashiell Bad Horse (Meraz), who has returned home after years away from the reservation. The Native American casting is the first for a television series in recent history. Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah will direct. Warner Horizon Scripted Television produces.

Birmingham’s Chief Lincoln Red Crow is the controversial Chief of the Prairie Rose Reservation. Formerly an idealistic activist, Red Crow orchestrates the opening of the casino on the “Rez,” believing it to be the key to his tribe’s future and redemption for his own dark past. But the casino proves to be a Pandora’s Box, with Red Crow struggling to keep it the Rez’s salvation and not its demise.

Bedard is Gina Bad Horse, a legendary activist and the public face of opposition to Red Crow and his casino. Her efforts and ways of helping her people stand in stark opposition to Red Crow, despite their intimate and secretive past together. In the face of Red Crow’s success with the casino, Gina begins to realize that defeating him requires adopting his dark tactics.

Spencer will portray Sheriff Falls Down. The local sheriff with a deep investment in the Rez and its people, his wry easy manner obscures an edge and keen intelligence. There is no love lost between Sheriff Falls Down and Chief Red Crow — but there is a mutual respect.

Native American filmmaker Sterlin Harjo (Mekko) will serve as a producer and joins executive producer Len Goldstein (Powerless, Roadies) on the creative team led by executive producer/writer Doug Jung (Star Trek Beyond, Big Love).

19:35 - The Good Place - Creator Teases Season 2
Thanks to A for the heads up. This is just a small piece of the article here, EW has 4 pages worth of info, please click the link for more.

Will season 2 follow similar adventures as season 1’s, but with new participants as the quartet tries to find their way back to one another?

I’ll only say that the starting point — well, you saw the starting point, basically. The very end of the finale, she woke up, she was in a similar looking office, there were small changes to the neighborhood. The premiere will show where everybody is starting from, at the very least, but I don’t want to say too much about the future of the season beyond that.

Will Todd the lava monster come back?

We have no actual plans to bring him back, but I’ll tell you this: This is all stuff I’ve learned in this last year, because I’ve never worked on a show like this before, but in terms of visual effects, the largest expense is the original design, right? Once you have the design, now it’s in the computer and it’s a lot cheaper and easier to bring it back and do more fun things with it. Let me put it this way: I don’t know how long this show is going to be on the air, I hope it’s a long time, but if you think that I’m not going to take, at some point, a lava monster named Todd Hemple, who has Joe Mande’s voice, and bring him back in the show for some reason, at some point, you don’t know me at all. [Laughs]

Facing an official cover-up, and dragged into a cruel conspiracy, Amanda must overcome a history of depression and anxiety to find within herself the strength and resources she’ll need to go up against a seemingly unbeatable foe.

Coster is Mr. Blue, the lead villain otherwise known as Leonardo Scaramucci, whose wealth and status as a legitimate businessman in the wine import trade support an increasingly profitable and highly illegal sideline.

20:00 - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend - Season 2 - Soundtrack Released + Interview

"Period Sex" is on the CD and the video finally came out. Did The CW not let that air in full or was it always supposed to be an online thing?

We assumed they wouldn't let it air. I sent it to Patricia who's the head of the [standards and practices] and said, "Here's a song, there's no way we could put this on the air." There was a version in which maybe as a tag for an episode and it's just a really, really long tag. And she was like, "…No."
It's always hard with the FCC stuff because the FCC prohibits vulgar or graphic language and basically it's up to standards and practices to interpret what that means. I mean, I think the "cherry lube" line is probably what took it over the edge. Technically we don't say the words, vagina, clitoris, pussy—there's actually no technically bad words in it, but it's, um, yeah. [Laughs.] I just did press for the show in Paris and the journalists' questions were about the song "Sexy French Depression" and "Period Sex."

00:15 - Sense8 - Netflix Reassembling Cast After Options Had Expired
Thanks to 90sbaby for the heads up.

EXCLUSIVE: Season 2 of Netflix’s sci-fi drama series Sense8, from Lana and Lilly Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski, is set to debut May 5. It comes almost two years after the first season premiered on June 5, 2015, a year and nine months after the series was renewed for a second season, and eight months after the second season wrapped its marathon filming in more than a dozen locations across four continents.

As Season 2 episodes are being edited, I hear Netflix recently reached out to the core cast with offers for new contracts to make them available for a potential third season. I hear about half of the eight leads have closed deals, and the rest are in negotiations. Insiders are optimistic all would come back. I hear that under the new pacts, which include Season 3 provisions, the cast would be on hold until June, so Netflix will likely make a renewal decision by then. Given the trouble the Internet network is going through to secure the cast, it is logical to assume that Netflix is probably high on a potential third season.

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
