From LA Examiner: 'Nikita' & 'Supernatural' Season Premiere Details; Linda Ellerbee Teaches Kids About 9/11; Adam Pally & Eva La Rue Interview...

"The game is about to change on Nikita: Season two premiere details"

Nikita (Maggie Q) and Michael (Shane West) may have driven off into the sunset together at the end of the first season, but whatever adventures they may have been having since has been in our absence, and that doesn't seem quite fair! Thankfully, though, we won't have to wait too much longer for the show to return. And when it does, the new allies and new enemies are sure to shake things up quite a bit! ... [MORE]

Is it September 23rd yet!? With a new God in town, hell-atus has just felt extra long this summer, don't you think, Supernatural fans? ... [MORE]

Ever since we first saw Linda Ellerbee in an episode of Murphy Brown, we wanted to sit at her table and hear her stories. In the episode, she simply guest starred, playing herself-- a fellow journalist going up against Candice Bergen’s titular character for a news desk position. But admittedly back then we were young enough not to realize Ellerbee was not just another actress simply pretending to be a journalist on the sitcom; we had never seen her hard-hitting world reports because they were for more mature eyes. And we didn’t have cable in our house growing up, so we couldn’t even see her on the Nick News program in which she gave kids the facts, even if she did ease them into the cold, harsh reality of life....

"Adam Pally entertains-- in Happy Endings on ABC and on stage in L.A."

A lot can change in a year. For Adam Pally, that has meant not only going from unknown comic actor to co-star in a major television network ensemble with his role as Max on Happy Endings but it also means going from “the one who may be too sarcastic for his own good” to the one who is quoted the most because of snarky humor and instinct to entertain. In August of 2010 Pally (along with his Happy Endings cast members) took the stage in front of some cranky television critics, and in his own words, bombed. But in August of 2011, it was a much different situation... [MORE]

"AMC greenlights JJK Security and Kevin Smith's Secret Stash"

AMC announced this morning that they have greenlit two very separate and distinct new projects for the dramatic cable network, JJK Security, a workplace dramedy, and Secret Stash, an unscripted series set in an iconic comic shop. Both shows seem slightly off-brand for the network, but perhaps they are looking to expand outside of their niche and make a larger splash in new audience pools... [MORE]

"American Horror Story snatches up Torchwood: Miracle Day actor"

It's about to get hot in the Harmon house on FX' new supernatural thriller American Horror Story! The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the show has just cast Teddy Sears, who you probably know as the Blue-Eyed Man on Torchwood: Miracle Day over on Starz, to play a former co-owner of the house...

"The life of The Big C gets extended; Showtime renews for season three"

Let's all breathe a collective sigh of relief now that Cathy Jamison (Laura Linney) has some more life left in her. Showtime has announced today that they are renewing their cancer comedy, The Big C, for a (albeit noticeably smaller) ten episode third season... [MORE]

"Q&A: Eva La Rue weighs in on All My Children, CSI: Miami, Crest & Oral-B"

Eva La Rue has been pulling double duty these last few weeks out here in Los Angeles. While the tenth season of CSI: Miami is just getting started in production, she has also been working on All My Children, the ABC soap opera that really shaped her as an actress and as a woman. But she's never too busy to take what she learned and pay it forward to others, inspiring her fans to work just at hard at the things they love as she does. These days that is manifesting itself in a partnership with Crest and Oral-B, and LA TV Insider Examiner had a chance to have La Rue weigh in on her new gig, as well as her long-running beloved ones...
