TCA Winter 2015 Press Tour: NBC Cable Networks; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of January 19, 2015)

Sharknado 3

The cable networks of NBC were up next at the TCA Winter 2015 Press Tour yesterday and we have the full scoop! First off, USA Network has announced it has canceled its freshman comedy series Benched starring Eliza Coupe and Jay Harrington. Next up, Syfy and The Asylum announced that the original Sharknado survivors will return for the most epic shark attack yet! Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will reunite for the global pop culture sensation Sharknado 3, reprising their roles as Fin and April, respectively. Premiering on Syfy in July 2015, Sharknado 3 will cause mass destruction in the nation's capital, Washington, D.C., than roar down the Eastern Seaboard. On to E! Entertainment, they announced the second season pick-up of the network's first original scripted series, The Royals, in advance of its first season premiere on Sunday, March 15 at 10pm ET/PT. Elizabeth Hurley and Vincent Regan star as Queen Helena and King Simon.

Meanwhile, Bravo had some news, too. The network announced that the second original scripted series, Odd Mom Out, will premiere on Monday, June 8. The network also unveiled greenlights for many of its returning reality series. Furthermore, Bravo expands its scripted slate with the development of The One, from executive producer Charlize Theron and Universal Cable Productions enhancing the network's high quality original line-up. The 10 episode half-hour comedy, Odd Mom Out, stars acclaimed author Jill Kargman playing a satirical version of herself as she navigates the treacherous and elite ecosystem of New York's Upper East Side, and the uber-wealthy mommy clique inhabiting this fantastically outrageous domain. That's all that was of note to us, but some good stuff here! NBC itself is up today, so stay tuned for a recap on Monday.
