There were so many television pilot orders, series orders, and cancelations today. Here are most-to-all of them.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are officially not the only ones with a hip hop series in development. Fox has reportedly picked up Empire, a “Jay Z story”-like family drama series from Lee Daniels and Lee Daniels’ Lee Daniels’ The Butler writer Danny Strong.
Fox also reportedly ordered four comedies to series or pilot. They are: Weird Loners, a sitcom about four relationship-phobic people thrown together in a Queens townhouse. With Kevin James, one would hope. Sober Companion takes a new spin on the odd couple genre, pairing a self-destructive but charismatic attorney with an unconventional, court-appointed sponsor. Dead Boss, based on a UK series, sees a woman wronfully-imprisoned for murdering her superior. Here’s Your Damn Family has Malcolm in the Middle‘s Jane Kaczmarek attached to star as a single mom putting up with the 30-year-old son still living with her. This will probably not be her Breaking Bad.
NBC, meanwhile, has ordered a pilot for the single-camera comedy The Pro. Free of his Parks and Recreation smiling duties, Rob Lowe will reportedly star as a former tennis pro who reunites with his former partner at a country club.
Bad news for Family Tree and Hello Ladies. HBO has canceled the series after their wholly underwhelming first seasons. We can all go back to pretending Christopher Guest and Stephen Merchant quit on top after making game-changing mockumentaries.
ABC has reportedly picked up a few pilots, too. Forever centers on New York City’s most experienced medical examiner. (Note: he is most experienced because HE IS IMMORTAL.) Based on a Scandinavian show, Exposed follows “an investigative journalist who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth — including making questionable alliances.” And those are the most thrilling kind of alliances! Thirdly, The Visitors is based on the Ray Bradbury short story Zero Hour, and it involves children being manipulated by aliens to gain control of Earth. Kids! Gotta love ‘em.
Following the breakout success of Ride Along, ABC also reportedly added a Kevin Hart pilot to be based on his life and standup, teaching the comedian that there’s no skipping steps in this business. You may be a movie star now, Hart, but that doesn’t mean you just get to avoid the requisite tepid, semi-autobiographical, multi-camera sitcom.
James Marsden and Rupert Friend are the latest men accused of stealing parts from the wreckage of Paul Walker’s tragedy. According to THR, Marsden has started talks to take over Walker’s role in The Best of Me, a new bit of schmaltz being adapted from the Nicolas Sparks library. He’ll star opposite Michelle Monaghan, the two playing high school sweethearts who reunite years later in their hometown, where they will, history tell us, share a sensuous embrace, pausing momentarily to savor the passion before bringing their lips together.
Meanwhile, TheWrap reports that Rupert Friend–known best as Homeland‘s Peter Quinn and as the UK market’s name for My Buddy dolls–is replacing Walker on Agent 47, the latest attempt to turn the Hitman video game into a film. Walker was meant to himself be replacing Timothy Olyphant, who played the shorn killer in the largely-reviled 2007 adaptation. Commercials director Aleksander Bach is making his feature debut on the film.
“Friends are like stars, they come and go, but the ones that stay are the ones that glow.” Soy true.
First off, he'll always accept the person you are; on the inside AND on the outside.

We all know Archie isn’t really dead, but we definitely shed a few tears watching his funeral in these clips from next week’s episode of Once Upon A Time.
And what do we have here? Seven little men thinking of leaving Storybrooke forever to return… home?
If only they really knew …
Pampering her pooch, Eva Mendes took her dog to the Animal Hospital for a check up and trim on Saturday (December 1) in Westwood, CA.
Dressed in printed black pants and a black sweater, the 38-year-old “Hitch” cutie held tight to her four-legged friend’s leash as they left the building.
In related news, Ms. Mendes is currently filming the TV movie “Clear History,” which also stars Kate Hudson and Michael Keaton, for HBO.
The movie, about a disgraced former marketing executive who plots revenge against his former boss, who made millions from the electric car company they once owned, will air in 2013.

- Saving themselves the trouble of paying for Anthony Mackie‘s ticket to Comic Con, Marvel waited until today to reveal Mackie is in talks to run around with Chris Evans in Captain America: Winter Soldier. The actor is reportedly up for the part of Falcon, a longtime Captain America ally with the ability to telepathically talk to birds and fly on his little wings. In the larger Marvel Universe, I guess he’ll be the “grounded” character among the guy who talks to ants and the space raccoon.
- Speaking to Grantland (via), Michael Keaton confirmed, yeah, he’s still in things–things like the improvised comedy Larry David and director Greg Mottola are doing. Jon Hamm is thus far the only other cast member, so until I’m told otherwise, I’m going to assume the film is Superman/Batman, but really misanthropic.
- Richard Jenkins is in talks to join the Channing Tatum-saves-the-President film White House Down. Jenkins would play the “key role” of Speaker of the House, set to take command if something were to happen to President Jamie Foxx and his vice president, so you just know this guy’s in cahoots with the terrorists. For shame, Richard Jenkins.
