Hill-HARPER_lower1

Hill Harper (“CSI: NY”) has signed on to star as a series regular in season four of USA’s critically-acclaimed drama series COVERT AFFAIRS opposite Golden Globe®-nominated Piper Perabo (“Looper”),  Christopher Gorham (“Ugly Betty”), Kari Matchett (“Invasion”) and Peter Gallagher (“The O.C.”). The series, produced by Universal Cable Productions, films in Toronto and will span 16 episodes for season four. Harper will play an ambitious CIA station chief based in Latin America. Intelligent, charismatic and a bit cocky, he ascended to a very high position at a relatively young age and is plotting his way into a bigger position back in Washington. In his journey for greater power, he will attempt to make Annie and Auggie his allies, but his questionable actions will cause our leads to doubt his intentions. Season four of COVERT AFFAIRS picks up after CIA operative Annie (Perabo) and her longtime best friend and blind CIA tech-op Auggie (Gorham) finally acknowledge their romantic feelings for one another.  Things get complicated at the agency, as Annie aligns with Henry Wilcox (guest star Gregory Itzin) in a dangerous, covert mission that has potentially scandalous consequences for the CIA. Harper is an award-winning actor, bestselling author and philanthropist. A star of the long running TV drama CSI: NY and the author of four New York Times bestsellers, he has earned seven NAACP Image Awards for his writing and acting. Harper is also the founder of the Manifest Your Destiny Foundation, dedicated to empowering under-served youth through mentorship, scholarship and grant programs. From Universal Cable Productions, COVERT AFFAIRS is executive produced by Doug Liman (SUITS, the "Bourne" trilogy, "Mr. and Mrs. Smith") and David Bartis (SUITS, "The O.C.") through Hypnotic and is written and executive produced by show creators Matt Corman and Chris Ord.

Hannibal gets premiere date

hannibal-nbc

NBC has finally announced the premiere date for its new and highly anticipated series Hannibal. The new series will premiere on April 4th in the 10pm time slot. If you remember, that slot on NBC has been a difficult one to keep filled. Several shows have been in that slot and have all been cancelled, Prime Suspect, Awake, The Firm and most recently Do No Harm.

The series stars Hugh Dancy as Will Graham, a gifted criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer with the FBI. Graham's unique way of thinking gives him the astonishing ability to empathize with anyone - even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick. But when the mind of the twisted killer he's pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there's no villain they can't catch. If Will only knew.

Only time will tell how Hannibal will do in the 10pm slot.

Christina Applegate leaves Up All Night

Up-All-Night

As first reported by Deadline, actress Christina Applegate has decided to leave Up All Night. The sitcom has been on hiatus as of late and NBC was planning to retool the comedy by making it a multi-camera series with a live studio audience. She states that this creative change is the reason why she is leaving the series.

“It’s been a great experience working  on Up All Night, but the show has taken a different creative direction and I decided it was best for me to move on to other endeavors,” Applegate said. “Working with Lorne Michaels has been a dream come true and I am grateful he brought me into his TV family.  I will miss the cast, producers and crew, and wish them the best always.” This setback doesn't seem to be stopping NBC from moving forward with the sitcom, in the same article, Deadline reports that the network is looking at Lisa Kudrow to replace Applegate.

NBC cancels freshman series Do No Harm

do-no-harm-trailer   After only 2 episodes, NBC has pulled the plug on its struggling freshman series Do No Harm.  Starting immediately in the 10pm Thursday night-time slot, NBC will air repeats of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.  The series starred Steven Pasquale (Rescue Me) as Dr. Jason Cole;   a highly respected neurosurgeon who has it all: a lucrative career, confident charm and the gift of compassion. But he also has a deep, dark secret. One morning when he wakes up disoriented in a wrecked hotel room amidst several near-naked women he's never seen before, he knows one thing: It's happening again. Every night at the same hour, something inside Jason changes, leaving him almost unrecognizable -- seductive, devious and borderline sociopathic. The series premiered to the lowest numbers ever recorded by the four big networks for a scripted drama series. Things only became worse for the second episode which only had 2.1 million viewers.
