Melissa Benoist Cast As Supergirl For CBS

Melissa Benoist  is a guest-shot veteran of shows such as Homeland and The Good Wife and appeared in a chunk of musical high school show Glee. She’s currently on cinema screens as Nicole, the young woman that Miles Teller’s Andrew Nieman falls for in Whiplash .   Comic-book heroes – particularly from the DC universe – have rarely been more successful on TV. Word arrived in October that US network CBS (the home of the CSI franchise and other crime procedurals) was looking to get in on the action by commissioning Supergirl . We now know that Melissa Benoist will be playing Kara Zor-El in the show. The plot will follow Kal-El’s cousin, who escaped Krypton as he did and ended up on Earth. Initially unwilling to acknowledge her powers, she starts to come into her own in her mid-twenties and accept her heroic destiny. It’s the brainchild of Greg Berlanti, the man behind two of the bigger superhero shows on TV right now, Arrow and The Flash and Ali Adler, who worked on Chuck and shor

Chuck Comic-Con Roundup. With Big Surprises To Come

It was an emotional panel for both Chuck creator Chris Fedak and his cast as it said goodbye to its Comic-Con fans – a group that gave them a standing ovation both at their very first panel in a small meeting room at the Con several years ago and now as they’ve been upgraded to the big room of the event, Ballroom 20. “You guys really believed in us when we were screening a pilot no one ever heard of,” Zachary Levi , who plays the title character and teared up during a massive standing ovation for the show, remembers. “I look back at the moment and honestly it’s pretty amazing.” Chuck’s final season moves to NBC Fridays starting on Oct. 21 at 8 p.m. The cast and crew gave us some hints as to what to expect in the season where everything changes as Morgan ( Joshua Gomez ) now becomes the Intersect. Fedak says he’s thankful that he knows it’s the last season and can write the series’ ending on his own terms. Besides casting Mark Hamill as the season’s first villain, here are severa

NBC's Chuck Return's For A 5th Season

Perennial bubble show Chuck has apparently avoided cancellation once again. While NBC sources are not confirming that the spy-fi series will get a fifth season, several sources are reporting that a deal is being hammered out with Warner Bros. and is imminent. Though the ratings have been at their lowest this spring, Warner Bros. would love to make a deal, because five seasons of Chuck means syndication. As for NBC, well, scripted drama has not been the network's friend. That said, don't be surprised if we get a shorter 13-episode final season. So, while it looks like fans won't have to eat mountains of Subway sandwiches to save Chuck as they did to insure a third season of the show, there are no such hopeful murmurings for The Event, which has even lower ratings. The alien conspiracy series is not likely to be renewed. Please Leave A Comment- Source- SyFY

Chuck's Josh Schwartz To Direct Fun Size

Josh Schwartz (co-created  NBC's Chuck )  will make his feature directing debut with Fun Size , a teen comedy that his Fake Empire shingle is developing for Paramount. Read my Exclusive interview with him Here about Chuck. Paramount picked up the spec script by Colbert Report scribe Max Werner in May 2010. And while several projects are vying for Schwartz's attention as a director, including the coming-of-age drama Looking for Alaska , he fell hard for the comedic script, which centers on a sarcastic teenage girl who is forced to take her little brother trick-or-treating on Halloween, then loses him and must find him before their mother finds out. A sticking point had been timing. Paramount was unsure if the movie should be made in time for this Halloween or Halloween 2012. The studio has now made the decision to go for this year, so the movie, while still not officially greenlighted, according to the studio, is shooting for a late spring start in St. Louis. Lis Rowin
