NBC has ordered a new series, sort of, “Law & Order: True Crime – The Menendez Brothers.” This show will recreate the trial of Lyle and Erik Menendez, who in the mid-90s, were convicted of murdering their parents.

It will be a short, eight-episode series, in which NBC hopes will herald in an entire anthology series.

I guess when they saw how well FX’s anthology series, “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” did, netting 22 Emmy nominations, I guess NBC couldn't wait to try and trap the same magic for themselves.

And then there's CBS, working on their own new version, which will be focused on the unsolved murder of JonBenet Ramsey.

GOOD JOB FX, for leading the way.

Remember, The new CBS "Star Trek" series will be coming to Netflix in January of 2017.

And in case you are totally in love with "Star Trek," Netflix should be hosting ALL of the television series by the end of 2016.

Shocked! I was surprised to see that STARZ netted the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" movie for their network, but they did!

It will premiere on STARZ on Sunday, September 10th.
