Investigation Discovery announced today that it has greenlit a third season of its hit series, “Deadly Affairs.” Hosted by Susan Lucci (“All My Children”), the series provides audiences with titillating tales of murder and mayhem after relationships begin to falter. The program was one of ID’s top five shows in the 3rd quarter of 2013 in Women 25-54, Women 18-49 and Persons 25-54. In P2+, “Affairs” reached over 9.7 million unique viewers. The new season will premiere in summer 2014.
“We just can’t get enough of Susan Lucci — our affair with her is out in the open and we couldn’t be happier to continue for a third season,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, Military Channel and Destination America. “Our viewers are often tempted by the suspense of ‘will they or won’t they?’ — and with ‘Deadly Affairs,’ we already know they did — and they probably shouldn’t have!”
As we previously reported, Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco Jones, “General Hospital;” ex-Dominick Marone, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) and “Good Morning America’s” Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery, “All My Children”) have teamed up for a Hallmark Channel project, and the network has released new details. “My Gal Sunday,” which was once rumored to be a pilot for a possible primetime series, has now been confirmed as a Hallmark Movie Channel Original World Premiere movie!
The romantic drama (based of the book of short stories of the same name by author Mary Higgins Clark) follows a husband and wife duo (Mathison and “Clueless” star Rachel Blanchard) whose private eye backgrounds and political ties place them smack dab in the middle of intrigue and scandal.
TNT has announced that the third season of “Dallas” will kick off on Monday, February 24, which will be the first season without actor Larry Hagman and his iconic character J.R. Ewing. Hagman died just before season two premiered, and as a result the show was forced to kill off the character as well. In season three, Patrick Duffy‘s Bobby Ewing is now the senior member of the Ewing family following the death of his older brother. John Ross (Josh Henderson) is out to prove he can be just as powerful an ally or enemy as his infamous father. Meanwhile, Bobby’s adopted son Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) is newly single and determined to make a name for himself and his family in the world of natural gas. John Ross and Christopher’s former girlfriend, Elena Ramos (Jordana Brewster), is now blinded by thoughts of justice for previous wrongs.
Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” hits theaters nationwide on Friday, November 8, and the franchise’s ABC drama, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D.,” is set to feel the film’s repercussions in an all new episode, “The Well,” slated for Tuesday, November 19!
According to an official press release touting the “Agents” episode, Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. pick up the pieces left behind in “The Dark World” — one of which threatens to destroy a member of the team.
Look out for some new cattiness on the new season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” because two new women have joined the cast — one of which is former “The Young and the Restless” star Carlton Gebbia (formerly Carlton Elizabeth)!
The British designer — who briefly appeared on “Y&R” back in 1999, as well as in “Suddenly Susan” that same year — joins Peurto Rican model/actress Joyce Giraud for season four of the popular reality series, which premiered tonight on Bravo. She’s married to David Gebbia, owner of Stockcross Financial Services, and is said to be taken under Lisa Vanderpump’s wing on the show.

In addition to casting Michael Graziadei (“The Young and the Restless”, “American Horror Story”) in the pilot for “The Lottery” (Lifetime Casts Former ‘Restless’ and ‘American Horror’ Star in Pilot), Lifetime has also cast former “Guiding Light” and “Days of our Lives” actor Wes Ramsey in its other new pilot, “Deliverance Creek,” from Nicholas Sparks Productions and Warner Horizon. The series revolves around Lauren Ambrose (“Torchwood”, “Six Feet Under”) in the role of Belle, who becomes an outlaw after trying to save her family’s land from the corrupt parties looking to take control over it.
Ramsey is set to portray good guy Deputy Nate Cooper.
According to Deadline, Lifetime has cast Michael Graziadei (ex-Daniel Romalotti, “The Young and the Restless”; ex-Travis Wanderley, “American Horror Story”) in “The Lottery,” a new pilot the network is developing that hails from Warner Horizon. “Lottery” tells the story of a world where women are no longer having children, which leaves the human race on the brink of extinction. A national lottery is held after 100 embryos are later found to have been successfully fertilized.
Graziadei is set to play Kyle, described as a recovering alcoholic and single father of one of the last children born before new breaks of the new development.
Last week Friday Lifetime unexpectedly made the decision to bring back their once canceled, but now twice renewed hit series, “Drop Dead Diva,” for a sixth season set to premiere in 2014. Today, the network sadly opted not to do the same for “The Client List,” which stars Jennifer Love Hewitt as Riley Parks – a single mother of two who happens to make a whole lot of money as a prostitute.
The series – loosely based on the 2010 hit Lifetime original movie of the same name and inspired by a true story – will not return for a third season, confirms a Lifetime representative to Soap Opera Network.
As the promo indicates below, on Thursday, December 5 “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Jacqueline MacInnes Wood will take viewers on the ultimate adventure as she travels around the world as host of the new E! reality series, “Party On.” In the series, Wood is highlighted in such exotic locations as Sardinia, Ibiza, Hvar and Marbella, meeting several individuals in a world without limits. Activities Wood takes part include rock climbing, yachting, camel riding, jet skiing, NASCAR like racing, and much more.
Wood is reportedly set to return to “B&B” in the role of Steffy Forrester around the same time her E! series debuts, although a rep for the soap has yet to confirm such news to Soap Opera Network.
Just one year ago it seemed likely that “Drop Dead Diva” would end its run after just four seasons with a huge game changing cliffhanger. In the weeks and months following the October 2012 season finale, Lifetime announced it had canceled “Diva” as it reportedly did not fit within their “brand” of programming. When all seemed lost Sony Pictures Television, producers of the series, was able to work out a deal with Lifetime that allowed the show to return for a fifth season. Today Lifetime and Sony announced that “Diva” will return for a sixth season in 2014.
