Described as a “master class in life, love, woodworking, meat-eating and being a man,” the epic event will be released on Dec. 12 ... Discuss
Michelle MacLaren may not be a household name yet, but if you’re a fan of shows like Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead, than you are likely familiar with her work. Warner Bros. has just announced that MacLaren will soon be able to add another high-profile project to her resume: The upcoming Wonder Woman movie. The latest DC Comics adaptation will hit theaters sometime in 2017. Along with serving as an executive producer for Breaking Bad, MacLaren also directed several episodes of the series, as well as, episodes of The Walking Dead, The Leftovers, Better Call Saul and other TV hits ...

We’ve got good news and bad news for Parks and Rec fans. The good news is that Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins (played by Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones) will return to Pawnee for the show’s final season next year. The bad news is, they’ll only be back for a single episode. In an interview with TVLine.com, executive producer Mike Schur said, “We made a list of people that we needed to see back one more time. We didn’t get everybody we wanted … But a lot of the people we were hoping to see one more time — we managed to make that happen.” The seventh and final season of the NBC sitcom will only be 13 episodes, but with Chris, Ann and other Pawnee favorites returning, it will literally be the best send-off, of all-time ...

There’s been some interesting developments with the critically-acclaimed detective show Luther. Just days after it was announced that Idris Elba will not star in a new, American version of the drama being developed by Fox, the BBC announced that the actor would be returning to their network for at least two more 60-minute episodes.
Even though series creator Neil Cross and Elba have signed on to executive produce the new Fox version of the series, Cross released a statement this week saying, “Luther is coming back where he belongs. Back to the BBC. Back to London. And back to work.” The comment seems weirdly exclusive considering it was made the day after Fox released their own announcement about the American version. The new BBC episodes are expected to air some time next year, while the pilot for the Fox version is still in development ... Discuss
Last week, Woody Harrelson hosted SNL for the first time since 1989 and, all told, made a strong case for him being a much more regular host. It was the show's best episode in ages, featuring some social commentary, goofy antics and riveting performances from musical guest Kendrick Lamar. Surprisingly enough, it appears this SNL was actually overloaded with good content. The following sketch was performed in-studio, but cut from the actual broadcast, and it's a very sharp-but-sweet satire of Twitter and how much time we waste on it. Keep it up, SNL ... Discuss
In a not terribly surprising move, NBC has pulled the plug on 77-year-old Bill Cosby's new pilot, which was to be his return to television. The move comes on the heels of a series of sexual assault allegations (and renewed interest in old sexual assault allegations that were never given much attention), and Cosby's refusal to comment. Former model Janice Dickinson is the latest and most high-profile person to level an accusation against Cosby, saying that she was drugged by him back in 1982. That brings the total number of public accusations up to 15, though several journalists say they are talking with women who wish to remain anonymous ... Discuss
