NBC to Air Timeless Holiday Finale; truTV Gets Weekly Pop Culture Awards Show Pilot

Timeless

Hey Clockblockers, your mission is complete! NBC and Sony Pictures Television are collaborating on a two-part Timeless finale to air during the holidays, giving closure to the globetrotting series that has generated incredible viewer passion. According to executive producers Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke, audiences can expect the Timeless they know and love. A focus on the unsung and underrepresented people of history. And most importantly, one final emotional story for the Time Team. The cast includes Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Višnjić, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit. Timeless was canceled last month after two seasons. Stay tuned for an airdate, but it looks like it will be November/December.


Vulture

Turner's truTV has announced a pilot order for an unscripted project from Vulture, the go-to entertainment news site for the culturally obsessed, which would mark the first-ever televised project for the digital publisher. The untitled project is a new, weekly comedic awards show honoring the most deserving stories from the week in pop culture.

Every week, two dynamic hosts serve as the masters of ceremonies, handing out awards to the people, places and things everyone can't stop talking about. Each episode will include clever takes on the traditional award show tropes that everyone loves - and loves to make fun of - from musical numbers to seat fillers to playoff music to in-memoriam packages. The pilot is being produced internally at truTV and casting is currently underway for the series' hosts. Still a bit to go to find out if this project gets picked up to series, so stay tuned.
