Even though TV-related news has been semi-slow this week, there have been interesting developments, like Nathan Fillion heading over to Community, Halle Berry taking a shot at the small screen thanks to Steven Spielberg and etc.
So, without further a do, I present to you some interesting TV News from around the web:
Apparently, Lowe will be playing a former tennis champ who’s misfortunes and unwise investments ultimately lead him to working at a tennis/golf club.
Though I’m inclined to give such a premise the side-eye like above, I will give it the slight benefit of the doubt since there’s already a pilot commitment and all. And then there’s Rob Lowe and his involvement can’t be all that bad, right?
(You can read more about that here).
Nathan Fillion will be guest-starring on Community.
Oh f*ck yes.
Get ready for those Firefly references Community/Whedon fans.
Deadline recently reported that Nathan Fillion would be guest-starring on the show “as a politically-saavy custodian”.
I’m totally there.
(You can read more about that here.)
I thought we already had enough of this with Jersey Shore?
I’ll keep an eye out for now. I haven’t really seen Topher Grace in anything since the f*cking awful Spider-Man 3 (I still get nightmares) and I actually can’t remember the last time I saw Sarah Silverman in something…besides Kanye’s tweets (yeah, I went there).
(You can read more about the show here.)
The ageless Halle Berry will be staring in a new CBS show called Extant.
She refuses to age.
In all seriousness, not only is Berry involved in the project, but Steven Spielberg is also involved in the project and the series has already received a straight-to-series order (well damn. But then again, it makes sense. Who in the f*ck wouldn’t give the green light to a Steven Spielberg-backed project?)
I may check it out, but you can read more about it here.
