As previously reported, soap stars Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery, “All My Children”) and Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco Jones, “General Hospital;” ex-Dominick Marone, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) are set to star in the Hallmark Movie Channel Original movie, "My Gal Sunday," which premieres tonight at 9:00 PM ET on the cable network.

Russell ("American Hustle" and "Silver Linings Playbook") has received a straight to series 13-episode order from ABC for his newest drama project, "an upstairs/downstairs soap set at a private country club," which will be co-produced by ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios.
As previously reported, CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” announced a new partnership with Pan Macmillan and its digital-first imprint, Momentum, in which the publishing company will release a series of novellas surrounding several characters from the daytime soap opera.

In perhaps his biggest directorial effort yet, James Franco adapts "Child of God," a film based on a Cormac McCarthy novel of the same name. A teaser trailer for the film was released last August, but today we get a first full-length look at the film.
According to CBS, "The Good Wife" has emerged as a multi-platform (on air, online and on demand) darling as it gets ready to head into the second half of its fifth season. Per the network, the series has shown double-digit percentage growth in all available television platforms and has emerged as the most-watched television series on the popular Amazon Prime Instant Video service during the fourth quarter.
In case you missed it last year when it premiered on Lifetime Movie Network, LMN has scheduled several re-airings of "Hunt for the Labyrinth Killer," which stars former "All My Children" actor Michael Nouri (ex-Caleb Cortlandt) as a retired and respected judge accused of being Daedalus, a serial killer infamous for luring his victims to their deaths through labyrinth traps.
While stopping short of saying the network has officially picked up new seasons of either series, Paul Lee, President, ABC Entertainment, announced Friday, January 17, during the Disney/ABC Television Group's portion of the 2014 Television Critics Association Press Tour, that "Grey's Anatomy" and "Revenge" are on solid ground to return next season with new episodes on the network. "Grey's" in particular is likely to continue "for many years to come," said Lee to reporters.
