  There is one less drama slot open for NBC's Fall 2015 season. In a somewhat unprecedented move, NBC has given a 13-episode straight-to-series order to Shades Of Blue. Shades of Blue is a drama that will star Jennifer Lopez, she will also executive produce with her American Idol co-star Ryan Seacrest. Shades of Blue is a complex police series that centers on Harlee McCord (Lopez), a single mother and detective recruited to work undercover for the FBI’s anti-corruption task force. She is apart of a close-knit unit known for its conviction record. However, the story begins when Harlee has become compromised by her colleagues — all of whom have pitched in to help her raise her daughter — and finds herself faced with the moral dilemma of working against her cop brothers in order to redeem herself. This will be the first drama from reality powerhouse RSP’s.

The brass at NBC "We’re especially excited that Jennifer is returning to her acting roots from such great movies as Out of Sight, and they know that she will create this complicated character in a vivid way that will breathe new life into the cop show genre. Ryan Seacrest is part of the NBCU family and doing his first scripted drama series with us makes perfect sense.”

Save the Cheerleader Save the World or Something Like That

 If you were near a television when the first season of Heroes came out, no doubt you remember this tag line. Watching the beautiful Hayden Panettiere, break her neck multiple times and still walk away without a scratch was entertaining for 4 seasons until the show was eventually cancelled. The original series chronicled the intertwined stories of unrelated ordinary people who discovered they had superhuman abilities and learned they were part of a grand plan that brought them together to change the world. NBC has decided to revive this iconic show as an event miniseries, much like Fox is reviving its hit drama 24. The 13-episode new standalone arc entitled Heroes: Reborn, will air in 2015. Heroes: Reborn will feature a new group of characters, though “we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said. The characters and storylines from Heroes: Reborn will be introduced in a digital series prior to the launch of the TV miniseries.

Even though it was cancelled in May 2020, the show has quickly earned a cult status, with fans still passionate about it and rallying to bring it back even after NBC abandoned an idea of doing a 2-hour TV movie or 4-hour miniseries to wrap the show’s storyline. Heroes has been one of the most profitable titles for NBC’s sister studio, Universal TV, ranking as its biggest international and DVD seller. Maybe encouraged by the great reaction fans of 24 have had to the reboot of that cult series as an event mini, NBC opted to step in and take in the project as a miniseries.

VH1 Grabs New Scripted Series, Hindsight

VH1 has picked up new drama Hindsight, giving the hour long drama a 10-episode series pickup. The show is slated to premiere in early 2015. Hindsight, is set in 1990s New York and stars Laura Ramsey, and Sarah Goldberg. The show revolves around Becca (Ramsey) who, as she nears 40, is about to embark on her second wedding to Andy Kelly, but her joy is tempered by the absence of her old best friend Lolly (Goldberg) who’s a no-show, having dropped out of their relationship years ago. As Becca mulls over her past with Lolly and the mishap of her marriage to her first husband, Sean (Horner), she wakes up on her wedding day in 1995 – she’s about to marry Sean, a bad-boy artist who is all wrong for her – and she knows her first move must be to reconnect with Lolly to re-live that day. Can she “make it right” by living her life all over while re-adapting to life in New York City in the ’90s – a time of smoking in bars, carrying pagers, having an AOL email address? “Hindsight is a great mix of sweetness, drama, ’90s nostalgia and humor,” Levison. This female center drama seems to be the way VH1 is heading in regards to their scripted dramas. Although it is a slightly confusing premise, the show should be entertains to watch.

What do you think, are you looking forward to Hindsight?

It's over Raising Hope has been Cancelled After Four Seasons

The fourth season finale for Fox's Raising Hope, will also serve as the shows series finale. The sitcom will end it's run Friday, April 4th featuring back-to-back episodes from 9-10 PM. Raising Hope was the first comedy series in a while to stick at Fox. It ended up being a good utility player, doing well behind New Girl but also as a 8 PM anchor of the Tuesday comedy block last season. “Getting to know and love the Chance family on Raising Hope has been a sweet, hilarious ride,” said Fox chairman Kevin Reilly and COO Joe Earley. “Thanks to the incredibly talented cast — along with Greg, Mike and the entire crew — for making us laugh for four fantastic seasons.” Raising Hope languished when it was sent to Fridays, a 0.5 18-49 rating this past Friday. There is still some hope, the show has been sold in broadcast syndication. With New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mindy Project just renewed and Raising Hope cancelled, the fate of two Fox comedy series — freshmen Dads, Enlisted, and the upcoming Surviving Jack remains in limbo. Dads is considered to have a little better chance of coming back.
