Charlie Sheen Ferris Bueller

Charlie Sheen is about to have another run-in with the law. Not in real life (not that we know of at least, but who ever knows with this guy), but on the ABC series The Goldbergs.

‘Selfie’ Unaired Episodes Headed to Hulu

TIM PEPER, JOHN CHO, DA'VINE JOY RANDOLPH, KAREN GILLAN, ALLYN RACHEL, DAVID HAREWOOD

Selfie made its debut on good old-fashioned broadcast TV this fall, but it’ll finish up on the Internet. The ABC comedy has just found a new home at Hulu, following its cancellation earlier this month.

Karen Gillan and Henry Cho lead the series, billed as a modern-day telling of My Fair Lady — self-obsessed Eliza recruits prim co-worker Henry to “fix” her public image. Emily Kapnek (Suburgatory) created the series. More details on the Selfie unaired episodes after the jump.

Agent Carter

Like so many of her sexist colleagues, we made the mistake of underestimating Peggy Carter when she first burst onto the scene. We enjoyed her in Captain America: The First Avenger, but assumed we wouldn’t see much more of her beyond the occasional flashback. Little did we know that in a few years time, she’d be headlining her very own series.

Said show, Agent Carter, is due to premiere in a few months, and Marvel is now ramping up its marketing efforts. The very first Agent Carter clip sets up the story: Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) is in danger, and he’s sending his pal Peggy (Hayley Atwell) and his butler Jarvis (James D’Arcy) on a mission to clear his name. Watch the Agent Carter clip after the jump.

Update: Marvel has announced the specific premiere dates for Agent Carter and the return of Agents of SHIELD. Find both below as well.

mockingbird

(Spoilers for last night’s Agents of SHIELD episode, “A Hen in the Wolf House,” ahead.)

Following her casting over the summer, Adrianne Palicki made her first appearance as Bobbi Morse on Agents of SHIELD in last night’s episode. She even got to kick some serious ass in her role, beating up baddies with her signature batons.

But that was Bobbi undercover as a Hydra agent, in her Hydra uniform. It’s not really the same thing as seeing Mockingbird in action. So while we wait for that glorious day, we have a first look at Palicki’s Mockingbird costume. Hit the jump to see the Agents of SHIELD Mockingbird.

MSDBAPA FE007

A few weeks ago, we got word that the 1988 Tom Hanks classic Big was being adapted for the small screen by Fox. Now ABC is also mining Hanks’ resume for material, and has come up with a TV series based on the 1984 comedy Bachelor Party. If someone options Splash, we can officially call “TV shows based on ’80s comedies starring Tom Hanks” a new hyper-specific trend.

Hit the jump for more on the Bachelor Party TV series.

Uncle Buck

TV networks may want to start checking with filmmakers before rushing ahead to remake their works. Earlier this week, a Say Anything… TV series was announced and then swiftly scrapped when Say Anything… movie director Cameron Crowe objected loudly and publicly. Now it’s possible ABC’s planned Uncle Buck reboot could meet the same fate.

While neither director John Hughes nor star John Candy are alive to offer their opinions on the project, their families are speaking up on their behalf. And long story short, they are not at all happy. Hit the jump to read their comments.
