CBS Has Ordered Some Interesting Series’ For Fall

 

And by interesting I mean WHAT THE FUDGE? What the HAM SANDWICH?! Um.. Michael Weatherly is leaving NCIS (his last episode airs this coming Tuesday night) and he now is now starring in the upcoming ‘Bull’. Okay. Sounds innocuous. Oh but wait!! It’s based on DR PHIL. Yeah. THAT Dr Phil.

Weatherly, who ends his 13-season run on TV’s No. 1 drama this month, stars in Bull as Dr. Phil McGraw (yes, that one) as the series follows his early career as head of one of the most prolific trial consulting services of all time.
From House’s Paul Attanasio, the CBS Television Studios drama is exec produced by McGraw and his Stage 29 Productions topper/son, Jay McGraw. Amblin’s Justin Falvey and Daryl Frank also exec produce the drama, co-starring Freddy Rodriguez, Christopher Jackson (Hamilton), Geneva Carr and Jaime Lee Kirchner

What?? I don’t… I can’t..

We’ve also got a remake of ‘Training Day’. My mother hated the film, she hated that her beloved Denzel Washington played an abusive psychopath. Now she can enjoy that type of storytelling weekly!

Training Day is described as a reimagining that begins 15 years after the 2001 film left off, the reboot centers on an idealistic young African-American police officer (Justin Cornwell) who is appointed to an elite squad of the LAPD where he is partnered with a seasoned, morally ambiguous detective (Bill Paxton in his broadcast series regular debut).

The drama is written by former LAPD detective Will Beall (Castle, Gangster Squad). Antoine Fuqua, who directed the feature film, executive produces the drama alongside Warner Bros. Television-based Jerry Bruckheimer TV’s Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and KristieAnne Reed. Fuqua’s Fuqua Films is also attached. Warner Bros. Pictures produced the original feature alongside Village Roadshow Pictures. Danny Cannon will also exec produce and directed the pilot. Katrina Law, Drew Van Acker, Lex Scott Davis and Julie Benz co-star. Sources stress that while not a co-production, CBS Television Studios has an ownership interest in the drama, a big deal given WBTV’s unwillingness to share in the financials.

Sounds uplifting and not at all stressful. We’ve also got a MacGyver reboot to look forward too.

A reimagining of the television series of the same name, the new MacGyver follows a 20-something MacGyver (X-Men: Apocalypse‘s Lucas Till) as he gets recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.

A high priority for CBS Television Studios — which produced the original — the drama was originally written by R. Scott Gemmill (NCIS: L.A.) but ultimately picked up to pilot with new writers Paul Downs Colaizzo (CBS pilot LFE from last season) and Brett Mahoney (Code Black) — though the network may be tossing out that script for a new one as the duo’s future with the series remains in question as Hawaii Five-0’s Peter Lenkov has boarded the drama. Henry Winkler, who executive produced the original series, is on board to serve in the same capacity alongside Michael Clear, head of production at James Wan’s Atomic Monster. Wan (Aquaman, Mortal Kombat, Saw) will exec produce and segue into TV with the project.

Fall is going to be kind of weird on CBS.

ABC Has Gone On A Cancelling Rampage

castle-katie-fired-season-8

It’s been a blood bath, ladies and gents. They’re cutting shows right and left. Yesterday we found out ‘Nashville’ was not returning. Which is not entirely surprising. It’s been surviving on a faint death rattle for the last season. Today, the hatchet swung again taking ‘Castle’ (after ALL that casting drama..), ‘The Muppets’ (poor promo, too rushed of a season, lost potential), ‘Galavant’ (even they were surprised they were brought back for season 2) ‘Agent Carter’ (people are TICKED), the freshman drama ‘The Family’ (eh) all in time for next weeks Upfronts. They’ll show us what they have in store for the fall season.

There will be more cancellations to come…

Jenny Slate Is Dating Chris Evans!

jenny-slate-chris-evans-zoom-ca9a6fd1-856c-40a4-bb40-c29fd2538582

As one blogger mentioned, Marcel the Shell is dating Captain America!!

The actress/comedian and the Captain America: Civil War actor, both 34, star together in the upcoming drama Gifted. A source tells Us that the pair went on a double date with Evans’ brother, Scott Evans, at Hollywood eatery Magnolia back in March.

Last month, the twosome also appeared on Anna Faris‘ “Unqualified” podcast in a joint interview. “I didn’t know what to expect when I met Chris. I was a little scared because I kind of felt like, Well, I don’t know him. He’s a giant man with huge muscles and he’s Captain America. How could we ever connect?” Slate said at the time. “[But the] first night that we hung out, I was like, Wow, I could hang out with Chris for, like, 90 hours.”

Evans appeared to share the same sentiment. “Oddly enough, I’ve only known Jenny for a few months, which is insane to say because we’re like the same animal.”

Um, I’m like squeeing with this news. Like squirming in my chair giggling. HOW ADORABLE IS THIS?! I mean, obviously the timing isn’t like, super perfect because it is kinda fishy how she literally just split with her husband, but okay. It’s Captain America.

Sandra Bullock’s Marrying Some Dude Apparently

sandra-bullock-boyfriend-bryan-randall-wedding-pp

You remember when pictures got out that Sandy B was dating a photographer by the name of Bryan Randall. He’s pretty hot. Former model. Supposedly they’ve been co-habiting for awhile now. Things are moving along to the next level, says Radar Online , so take from that what you will.

A family insider claimed the Our Brand Is Crisis star, 51, is ready to tie the knot with Randall, 49, and could even time the nuptials to coincide with her birthday on July 26!

“Sandra is crazy about Bryan and wants to marry him by summer,” said the source.

Portland-born Randall moved into Bullock’s five-bedroom estate last fall and has since become a father figure to the Oscar winner’s adopted children — son Louis, 6, and daughter Laila, 3.

They met when she hired him to snap pictures of Louis’s birthday party in January 2015.

“Sandra’s totally in love with him right now and she believes he’d make a great dad to her kids,” the source told Radar.

The stunning news comes in the wake of Bullock’s legal team insisting on a prenuptial deal that would specify Randall receive nothing in a divorce if he were to cheat on her.

The team reportedly convinced The Blind Side star that the clause was critical after her ex-husband and Monster Garage host Jesse Jamescheated and blew up their marriage in 2010.

Whoever this family member is that is spilling the beans needs to be ousted. How rude. Anywho, if this is legit, hoory for Sandy! But giiiiiiirl, lock down that pre-nup. For real. Lock it UP.

Giuliana Rancic Still Doesn’t Care If You Say She’s Too Skinny

Grancic

Seriously. Not at all. Doesn’t phase her one iota. Nada. She’s totally chill, guys..

She’s over the shamers and the haters, y’all!

“It honestly does not affect me at all. If I don’t want people to talk about how I look, then I shouldn’t be posing for photos on a red carpet,” the “Fashion Police” host — who’s gone on Dr. Oz before to address her weight publicly — told us.

Instead, “I focus on my family. My husband [Bill] and I are a team . . . No matter what happens . . . he will always be there for me, and that’s liberating and makes me feel very confident.”

Thank god. I’ve been so concerned.

Sharon and Ozzy Are Dunzo. Again.

sharon and ozzy

Happy Mother’s Day! What a glorious day it is here in rural Virginia. The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, and the gossip is flowing. On the internet that is. Sharon and Ozzy have split, again, this time due to an alleged affair on Ozzy’s part with a hairdresser named Michelle Pugh, who’s worked with celebs like JLo . After 33 years of wedded bliss.

According to sources, Sharon confronted the Black Sabbath frontman after finding proof of the affair, which she had suspected for a while – the two then had a huge fight and Ozzy sparked concern after going missing last week, with friends worried that he may have gone back to drink and drugs.

Thankfully Ozzy has since been in touch with his children, Kelly, Jack and Aimee, and is said to be okay as he lives in a Los Angeles hotel.

A spokesperson for the family confirmed last night that all was not well, saying: “At this time, Ozzy is not in the marital home.”

Welp. That’s no bueno.

Zayn Malik Wore Robot Arms To The Met

The theme was ManusxMachina… so I see what he was going for. Although, to me, it looks like he’s pretending to be a knight. He looks kind of silly. His girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, looks like she always looks. Gorgeous and perfect and shiny.

zaynandgigimet

Robot love, you guys. Do androids dream of electric Met Galas?

Claire Danes Is Galactic Cinderella At The Met

Oh my gods. This dress designed by Zac Posen is one of the most exquisite things I have ever seen. Even without knowing it lights up (it lights up!!) it’s gorgeous. Stunning!! She looks like a fairytale princess in this get up. And then, the lights go down…and magic.

clairedaneszacposen

ugh I can’t handle it. I’m sure the pictures don’t even do it justice. It should be on exhibit.

clairedaneszacposen2clairedaneszacposen1

It’s so GORGEOUS. The fiber optics needed 30 battery packs to last through the night. Totally worth it. She wins best dressed of the night, in my book.

Stana Katic Not Asked to Return For Season 9 Of “Castle”

castle-katie-fired-season-8

So basically, ABC fired one of the leads. Insanity. I know the show is called ‘Castle’ but I think a lot of the reason it became such a hit was/is the dynamic relationship between Nathan Fillion’s ‘Castle’ and Stana’s ‘Beckett’. This is disappointing.

As reported Monday morning, the ABC series is not asking either Katic or Jones to return in the fall, in the event of renewal, as an apparent means to cut costs. “We are grateful for Stana Katic’s talent and dedication to the series and we hope to continue our relationship,” the network said of Katic’s exit. Beckett’s portrayer meanwhile said in a statement, “I’m very grateful to ABC for giving me the opportunity to be a part of a much beloved show,” adding a “thank you” to the fans.

There are no details at this early stage on how Castle plans to write out one of its two main characters, though co-showrunner Alexi Hawley told TVLine that the Season 8 finale airing May 16 ends in a “dynamic” way that allows for “the possibility that maybe the show won’t come back in the same form.

Yeah, IF it comes back for season 9. One look at twitter and you’ll see it’s trending, and people are NOT happy with this casting shakeup.
