24 reboot

Ashley Thomas has joined the cast of Fox’s 24: Legacy. He’ll play Isaac Carter, the older brother to lead character Eric Carter, who will be played by The Walking Dead and Straight Outta Compton star Corey Hawkins. Deadline reports that there is some bad blood between these two characters, as Eric is now married to to Isaac’s ex-girlfriend. After all, it wouldn’t be 24 unless there was some soapy domestic drama to back up all other counter-terrorism shenanigans.

HBO Music Video show

HBO is already home to some of the best shows on television. Now, the prestigious network is looking to borrow even more of your time. Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes (via Variety) revealed plans to increase its number of original series by 50%, which will add up to about 600 hours of content. In other words, plan to start spending a lot more time on your parents’ HBO Go account.

Deadline reports that Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester has been cast as the female lead character in the Fox pilot Making History, which will follows a modern college professor (Adam Pally) who travels back in time to start a new life. Meester will play “Deborah, a colonial woman self-educated and incredibly motivated with modern ideals trapped in a regressive time.”

houdini and doyle

Fox’s upcoming series Houdini & Doyle has a delightful premise: brilliant illusionist and escape artist Harry Houdini (Michael Weston) teams up with Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Stephen Mangan) to assist Scotland Yard in solving a variety of mysteries. But this first poster is about as garish and tacky as you can get, looking more like a parody of a TV show that you’d see in a Hollywood satire than a real show. But still: one helluva premise.
