Judith Light (Judith Ryland, “Dallas;” ex-Karen Wolek, “One Life to Live”) is probably best known for her onscreen comedic entanglement with Tony Danza on “Who’s the Boss?,” and her next project is set to be just as funny — but with an unconventional twist!
Having catapulted to the number one spot in the 18-49 demo and experienced double digit improvement in many time slots, NBC has announced its upcoming fall 2014-2015 primetime schedule. The network is introducing a portfolio of new content that will be joining veteran shows “About a Boy,” “The Blacklist,” “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.,” “Grimm,” “Hannibal,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Parenthood,” “Parks and Recreation,” “America Ninja Warrior,” “America’s Got Talent,” "The Biggest Loser," “Celebrity Apprentice,” “Hollywood Game Night” and “The Voice.”
The anticipation leading up to the announcement of the 65th Primetime Emmy awards has been building for weeks, and “Breaking Bad’s” Aaron Paul and “How I Met Your Mother’s” Neil Patrick Harris finally made the official list public this morning. Watch the video below, or read on for the full list from Soap Opera Network detailing who’s in the running for the coveted golden statues!
NBC will be releasing a slew of new primetime programming this fall, all of which the network’s Chairman, Robert Greenblatt, hopes will be bolstered in February on the heels of the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. “The overriding strategy this year was to develop enough strong comedies and dramas to take advantage of the promotional heft of the Winter Olympics and devise two schedules for the upcoming season: one for fall and a slightly different one for midseason. I’m pleased to say that our development groups — headed by Jennifer Salke (scripted) and Paul Telegdy (alternative/reality) — really delivered,” Greenblatt said. “And aside from our Olympics planning, we also wanted to create better flow and compatibility on each night, and deploy our strongest lead-in (‘The Voice’) to maximum effect.”
ABC has consistently brought soap-worthy programming to primetime (“Desperate Housewives” and “Revenge,” to name but two), and the schedule for this fall is no different: Intermixing with popular mainstay shows like “The Middle,” “Modern Family,” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” come thirteen brand new shows, a few of which may spur “General Hospital” and other daytime soaps to come to mind! And Wendy Moniz (ex-Mayor Finn, “One Life to Live,” ex-Dinah Marler, “Guiding Light”) strengthens the soap/primetime connection with a role in the new drama, “Betrayal.” Read on to get the exciting details!
Before landing “Castle,” Nathan Fillion did a lot of whacky stuff as “One Life to Live’s” Joey Buchanan (including losing his characters virginity to Robin Strasser’s Dorian Lord!), but his latest gig just may take the cake: According to Entertainment Weekly, he’ll be voicing an animated character in Pixar’s “Monsters University,” a prequel to the popular “Monsters, Inc.”!
