The harrowing real-life case of Jodi Arias has gripped the nation for months, and hot off the heels of the 28-year-old woman’s conviction last week for murdering her former lover, Travis Alexander, comes a Lifetime original movie detailing Arias’ life and the details behind the killing that shocked America.
“Jodi Aria: Dirty Little Secret” stars Tania Raymonde (“Texas Chainsaw 3D,” “Switched at Birth,” “Lost”) as Arias, an aspiring photographer found guilty of murdering Alexander (Jesse Lee Soffer; Will Munson, “As The World Turns”), who was found nude in his shower with a slit throat, 27 additional stab wounds and a bullet to the head.

Has VH1 declared war on daytime? That’s what it seems, as the music channel has added the talk show “Gossip Table” to its lineup, an addition that could give existing network talk shows a run for their money!
The pop culture morning show groups together five gossip columnists — Rob Shuter (“The Today Show”), Marianne Garvey (New York Daily News), Noah Levy (In Touch), Chloe Melas (HollywoodLife.com) and Delaina Dixon (DivaGalsDaily.com) — who will discuss breaking stories in the entertainment industry and beyond.
NBC’s popular comedy, “The Office,” just aired its final episode, but fans of the single-camera mockumentary may have something similar to look forward to: “Days of our Lives” stars Shawn Christian (Daniel Jonas) and Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) have teamed up with Jack Briggs and Nate Hartley to create “Addicts Anonymous,” a possible web-bound comedy that brings the Peacock Network’s Dunder Mifflin-based show to mind — with a slight “The Breakfast Club” twist!
The show, which will also star comedy veterans Matt Walsh (“Veep,” “Ted,” “The Hangover,” “Old School”) and Jerry Lambert (“Shameless,” Family Guy,” “Bad Teacher”), along with former “DAYS” beauty, Molly Burnett (ex-Melanie Kiriakis), is about a group of college students — all battling different addictions — working through their problems in one room.

Former “General Hospital” star Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky Spencer) may be busy with his current gig on ABC’s “Nashville,” but lucky for fans, he managed to find the time to hit the road with his band, Enation, and he may be coming to a town near you!
