FAMOUS IN LOVE: ABC Family Announces Full Cast for New Series


ABC Family (to be named Freeform in January) has announced the cast for the upcoming series FAMOUS IN LOVE. Based on the novel by Rebecca Serle, FAMOUS IN LOVE stars Bella Thorne as Paige, a college student who catches a big break when she additions for the starring role in a blockbuster movie. But now that she has a star-studded life, she has to figure out how to adapt and deal with the chemistry with her two co-leads and uncover the truth about what happened to a missing poster.

The network has also revealed the rest of the cast: “Joining Thorne is Carter Jenkins (THE FOLLOWING) as Rainer, the son of Hollywood royalty, who is one of Paige’s costars in the blockbuster movie. Jesse Henderson (FINDING CARTER) plays Jake, Paige’s best friend who becomes jealous when Paige starts hanging out with Rainer. Keith Powers (STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, RECOVERY ROAD) will portray Jordan, a Hollywood bad boy, who stars with Rainer and Paige in the movie. He and Rainer have a complicated history, which is further heightened by the fact that both share chemistry with Paige. Niki Koss (SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE) stars as Alexis, one of Rainer’s old friends, who competes with Paige for the same role, and like most people on the show, has a secret. Georgie Flores (CSI) will play Cassandra, Paige’s roommate and close friend, who is straightforward and a good friend. Perrey Reeves (ENTOURAGE) will star as Nina, Rainer’s smart and cunning mother, who is half of one of Hollywood’s most powerful couples. Confident and manipulative, she does whatever it takes to make sure things go her son’s way. Pepi Sonuga joins the cast as Tangey, a beautiful pop star who mysteriously disappeared from the public eye, and previously involved with both Rainer and Jordan. Mark Valley (HUMAN TARGET) will recur as Grant Devon, Rainer’s father, who is a major figure in Hollywood.”

Production on FAMOUS IN LOVE begins this week. I. Marlene King (Executive Producer, PRETTY LITTLE LIARS) and Serle wrote the pilot.

DEAD OF SUMMER: ABC Family/Freeform Picks Up New Horror Series


ABC Family is rebranding itself as Freeform in 2016 and now the network has announced its first official pick-up under its new banner: DEAD OF SUMMER.

The series is created by Adam Horowitz & Edward Kitsis, along with ONCE UPON A TIME writer Ian Goldberg. Here’s what we know about the show: “Set in the late 1980s, school is out for the summer, and a sun-drenched season of firsts beckons the counselors at Camp Clearwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, including first loves, first kisses – and first kills. Clearwater’s dark, ancient mythology awakens, and what was supposed to be a summer of fun soon turns into one of unforgettable scares and evil at every turn. Part coming-of-age story, part supernatural horror story, DEAD OF SUMMER is a bold, new series that mixes genres as it examines the light and dark of a summer like no other.”

There’s no word yet on a premiere date but DEAD OF SUMMER has been given a straight-to-series order based on a multiple-script commitment.

THE LIBRARIANS Preview: The Family Stone


Jake’s family takes center stage in this week’s episode of THE LIBRARIANS. After spending several months off on separate adventures, the Librarians came together in the season 2 premiere to help stop a huge storm over Manhattan. Now the trio have opted to work together again with Eve at their side as Flynn headed out to find missing relics from the Library’s archives.

In “…And What Lies Beneath the Stones (aka Coyote)”, the Librarians and Eve head out to investigate a cave-in at an oil rig site which has unleashed Hokolonote, a shape-shifting god who grows in strength any time a lie is told. But this investigation is going to put Jake on a collision course with someone he doesn’t want to see: his father (played by Jeff Fahey). The unleashing of the god will also force the three Librarians to come clean to each other and reveal long-buried truths, which could lead to them solving the riddle of the ancient prison that held Hokolonote.

Don’t miss an all new episode of THE LIBRARIANS on November 8 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on TNT.

CHICAGO FIRE Recap: A Family Matter

chicago fire

This week’s CHICAGO FIRE was an emotional one, as one of Firehouse 51′s own was put under the knife, while Molly’s was put under legal inspection. The medical side of things started last week, where CHICAGO FIRE left viewers with a view of Gabby hunched over her stomach in pain, claiming that something was wrong with the baby.

We pick up right where that left off on this week’s episode with Gabby being rushed to the hospital and needing two surgeries (the second due to complications) to try and save her and the baby. Unfortunately, the baby didn’t make it. The fetus was growing outside of the uterus and was therefore not a viable pregnancy. But Gabby was fine, physically, and she received support from Matt and the rest of the squad, most significantly from Herman as he shared his story about him and his wife having a miscarriage with their first pregnancy. She will hopefully recover soon and be back to work on the arson investigation.

Speaking of arson, any leads on arresting the serial arsonist is was put on hold when the files went missing from the offices, but was soon remedied as Severide brought in (on a tip from his ex, possibly soon to be not-ex, girlfriend) a computer wizard to track who took the electronic files. The investigation is causing the arson chief to act suspiciously, and when Kelley confronts him, the chief denies involvement. However, hours later the chief is found sitting on the edge of a bridge after having sent the stolen documents to the firehouse. Guilt about covering for the arsonist, who they believe to be a very well-off real-estate tycoon, causes the investigator to jump, with Severide jumping quickly enough after to save drag him to shore.

Severide had quite the day when even before jumping in the river, a young boy was trapped in a bouncy castle while the ground around him built up electrical energy and fire sparked from the power lines above. Severide and the team built a makeshift bridge above ground from various wooden products, and were able to rescue the young boy in time. In another valiant rescue, Chile and Brett were able to save a man who was about to undergo an autopsy when he sat up. Due to a heart arrhythmia he was diagnosed dead in the field, and when being transported to the morgue’s autopsy table sat up, and when the paramedics were called they used a make-shift pacemaker to keep him alive until arriving at the hospital.

Finally, not only did Firehouse 51 bond together as a family over Gabby and Matt’s ordeal, but the loss of Molly’s hit them hard as well. The new Portland neighbors were able to get Molly’s shut down on a code violation, but the new candidate is the hero of this story. He brought his cousin in to look at the bar, and they decided that the bar has been around long enough, and was made with material rare enough, that Molly’s qualifies as a historic building. The squad gathered in the safe-haven disguised as a bar, with cheers to Gabby’s health and the bar’s continued existence.

Don’t miss an all-new CHICAGO FIRE on November 10 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
