TV News, Cast Changes and More - 070617



American Ripper, will will be premiering on The History Channel on July 11th, sounds like an amazing concept series. They're going to be looking at America's first serial killer, Herman Mudgett, alias H.H. Holmes, whose rumored kill count could be as high as 200 victims. The show will be examining the premise that H.H. Holmes is also the infamous Jack the Ripper.

For those interested in things like this, it could be a fascinating show. The only thing that has me being suspicious is that they're going to take eight episodes to do this.  Hmm.

-

CBS renewed their entire day-time TV line-up for the 2017-18 season.

This includes a three-year deal for “The Young and the Restless,
Two years for “The Price is Right.”
New seasons for “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Let’s Make a Deal” and “The Talk.”

-

Criminal Minds is losing cast member Damon Guptom, due to creative differences in the series. Whatever that means!  I guess this could be a spoiler of a sort, considering the season finale auto wreck. Who knows. We'll see.

-

Dracula movies could be a potential for BBC.  BBC America is in talke with Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss for a series of 90-minute movies based around Bram Stoker's Dracula. No scripts or cast have been announced yet, but this creative team brings an interesting promise to the idea!

After Universal's Dracula Untold movie, which was a surprisingly entertaining and refreshing new story on the legendary vampire, I hope they can keep this new premise as refreshing!

-

Halt and Catch Fire: Are you aware that its fourth season, will be its last on AMC?

-

Heroes and Heroes Reborn both get a second life, as they will now be streaming on Crackle.

-

If you heard that Last Man Standing might get picked up by CMT, the conversations to pick it up fell through. Sorry fans.

-

Luther got a season five nod from BBC America. Idris Elba will appear in the four-episode season.  (Actually, when their shows only have a few episodes, THEY MAKE IT COUNT and they're good. They cut to the chase, skip the filler bullshit and just give you good stories.)


-

NBC is launching THE OLYMPIC CHANNEL on July 15th. It can be found on

Altice, AT&T DirecTV, Comcast, Spectrum and Verizon.

It will also be on the following streaming channels:

DirecTV Now, Fubo, Hulu, Sony PlayStation Vue and YouTube TV.

IT can also be live-streamed on

NBCSports.com, the Olympic Channel app and the NBC Sports app.

-

NCIS Cast Bummer News:  Jennifer Esposito will not be returning for the 2017/18 season of the show. But if you had the hots for her, she will be on the Showtime series “The Affair”
and the Hannibal Classics series, "Speed Kills."

Did you know that 'Erodata TV Worldwide' has announced that NCIS is the most watch television drama in the world? Yep...

I gotta tell ya though, if Gibbs were in the real world, do you realize how many times he'd be called on the carpet by Human Resources??? LOL.

-

Netflix Picked Up the comedy Insatiable. It's self-anointed as a dark comedic series. But what's more important is that if you're a Christopher Gorham fan, he's in the cast. The show stars Debby Ryan, Christopher Gorham, Erinn Westbrook, Michael Provost, Sarah Colonna, Kimmy Shields, Irene Choi and Alyssa Milano in a recurring role.

-

Taken is losing a boat load of cast!

IT seems that when this CBS show returns for a second season (wait, what? I found it boring as hell and tuned out after the third episode), they will be without

Gaius Charles (John),
Brooklyn Sudano (Asha),
Monique Gabriela Curnen (Vlasik),
Michael Irby (Scott),
Jose Pablo Cantillo (Dave) and
James Landry H├ębert (Rem).

If you do watch the show, don't worry, Clive Standen and Jennifer Beals do return.

-

The Talk will be losing Aisha Tyler, because she has "become too busy." Hmm, I guess that's a new way to spell out 'creative differences!' Right?

-

Tony Danza will be starring in a Netflix crime drama titled The Good Cop! It's about a father and son cop team, the dad, who never follows rules, who somehow raised a son who is obsessed by following the rules. (How the hell did that happen!!!???) The showrunner is the the same guy who helmed Monk.

-

The Toy Box was renewed by ABC for a second season.

-

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was renewed by Netflix for a fourth season.

-

The Zoo had a second season ordered by Animal Planet.
