NBC’s last attempt at rebooting an old property involving Satan didn’t go so great, but they’re going to try again anyway. The network is developing a TV series based on the 1997 movie The Devil’s Advocate, about a young lawyer who realizes his boss is the Devil. In the literal sense, not the Devil Wears Prada sense. More details after the jump.

Bryan Fuller may not be quite at George R.R. Martin‘s level when it comes to killing off beloved characters, but Hannibal is still a show about a serial killer. It should come as no surprise that from time to time, characters get shot in the face, chopped into pieces, or braised in a nice wine sauce.
What is shocking is that sometimes, those characters nevertheless find ways to come back. At the Hannibal Comic-Con panel Thursday, Fuller confirmed the returns of two fan favorite characters believed to be dead. Hit the jump to find out who, and to get some more details on Hannibal Season 3. (Be aware the spoilers follow.)
Update: We’ve added video of the full Comic Con panel (minus footage clips) for Hannibal.

The world of Hannibal is a deadly serious one, full of intelligent psychopaths able to realize their ”designs” with terrifying precision. But as the Hannibal Season 2 gag reel shows, the set of Hannibal looks much more lighthearted.
After the jump, watch Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, and the rest of the cast screw up during takes and screw around between them.

As we’ve seen over the past few years, Disney’s had some trouble getting a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie off the ground. In the meantime, though, TV’s been more than happy to fill that watery niche — first with Starz’s Black Sails, and now with NBC’s Crossbones.
The Peacock has just released the first Crossbones trailer, which stars John Malkovich as the legendary pirate Blackbeard. As if that’s not promising enough, Crossbones also happens to be the creation of Neil Cross, who was behind the acclaimed British drama Luther. Watch the video after the jump.

Later this year, Anna Kendrick will playing classic Disney princess Cinderella in the mash-up musical Into the Woods. But first, she got the chance to cycle through a few other Disney princesses during her Saturday Night Live hosting gig this weekend.
For her opening monologue, the Pitch Perfect star channeled Belle of Beauty and the Beast, flitting across the SNL stage as if it were an 18th century French village. Later on, she did her best take on a modernized The Little Mermaid as an Ariel who — much to Ursula’s horror — emulates contemporary pop singers like Britney Spears and Kesha. Hit the jump to watch both videos.

Plenty of movies have taken inspiration from Rosemary’s Baby over the decades, including, recently, Hell Baby and Devil’s Due. But NBC is going the direct route by simply adapting Ira Levin‘s original novel into a four-part miniseries.
Zoe Saldana and Patrick J. Adams play Rosemary and her husband Guy, a young couple who’ve just moved from New York to Paris. When they discover that she is pregnant with their first child, they’re initially thrilled. But joy turns to fear as strange things begin to happen.
While it’s not technically a remake of Roman Polanski‘s movie, the comparisons are going to be inevitable. So how does this new version stack up? Watch the first Rosemary’s Baby tv teaser after the jump and judge for yourself.

If you tuned into Jimmy Fallon‘s debut as host of NBC’s The Tonight Show last night, you caught Spike Lee‘s latest project without even realizing it. The filmmaker directed the opening title sequence, which means, as Fallon happily put it, that “our show opens with a Spike Lee joint.”
The choice of Lee couldn’t be more appropriate as Fallon’s premiere also marked the return of The Tonight Show to New York City after four decades in Los Angeles. Watch the sequence after the jump.
