The scripted comedy - inspired by the couple's real life and relationship - is co-created and co-written by writer-director Ewen Wright and their son Gideon Grody-Patinkin. JAX Media is producing the project for SHOWTIME, with pilot production set for July in New York City. Seasoned follows the delightfully tumultuous relationship and life of a successful, gregarious, deeply committed, slightly insane married couple played by Patinkin and Grody - roles they've been rehearsing for the last 43 years. The source of their unending magic is the same as their unending woe: that they've stayed together all this time.

Philip Baker Hall as Lt. Joe Bookman on Seinfeld

Mr. Hall was a fantastic character actor. His guest appearance as Lt. Bookman on Seinfeld was one of the funniest and most memorable of the series. It led to many other jobs for him. He didn't start acting until he was 30 years old, but he had over 200 TV and film credits during his long career. We thank him for the laughs and entertainment he brought us. He will be greatly missed.

Rob Lowe Netflix Sitcom Rounds Out Cast; New PLL Premieres July 28 on HBO Max

Unstable - Fred Armisen, Sian Clifford, Aaron Branch, Emma Ferreira, JT Parr, Rachel Marsh and Tom Allen

Netflix announces cast for Unstable, joining Rob Lowe and John Owen Lowe in new scripted comedy. Sian Clifford, Rachel Marsh, Emma Ferreira and Aaron Branch will join as series regulars in series created by the Lowes and Victor Fresco. Fred Armisen, Tom Allen and JT Parr join as recurring guest stars. Unstable follows an introverted son (John Owen Lowe) who goes to work for his very successful, wildly eccentric father (Rob Lowe) in order to save him and his successful biotech company from disaster. It is inspired by Rob and John Owen Lowe's social media relationship, in which John Owen often humorously trolls his dad.

· Sian Clifford (Fleabag, Life After Life, Quiz) will play Anna, the Chief Financial Officer of the company run by Ellis (Rob Lowe), who has been with him since its founding. Strong, smart, opinionated, and one hundred percent loyal to her boss, Anna is one of the only people in Ellis's life who can go toe-to-toe with him.
· Rachel Marsh (Head of the Class, Just Beyond, iCarly) will play Luna, a genius biotech engineer who works in the lab with her friend and research partner Ruby (see below). Shy and awkward, Luna is happy to let her more outgoing partner do the talking for the two of them.
· Emma Ferreira (Transplant, Learn to Swim, Midnight at the Paradise) will play Ruby, also a biotech genius (let's just stipulate everyone who works here is a friggin' genius). Ruby is outgoing, friendly, and accessible ... the opposite of Luna.
· Aaron Branch (Lining, Kenan, Millennials) will play Malcolm, longtime friend of Jackson (John Owen Lowe). He's the project manager for the game-changing venture the company has been working on. An extrovert who is actually insecure since he's a non-scientist in a world of scientific geniuses.
· Fred Armisen (Our Flag Means Death, Los Espookys, Portlandia) will play Leslie, Ellis's board-appointed therapist who is desperate to be liked.
· Tom Allen (Barry, Old Dads) and JT Parr (Hawaii Five-O, Real Bros Of Simi Valley) will play TJ (Allen) and Chaz (Parr), not very bright brothers who only have each other and are adversaries to Ellis. They got their board position because their rich father helped fund Ellis's company.


Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin

The Max Original series, Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, will debut its ten-episode season on Thursday, July 28 with three episodes. Two new episodes will follow on August 4 and 11, with the final three episodes debuting August 18. Executive produced and written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and co-executive produced and written by Lindsay Calhoon Bring (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), this dark take on the teen melodrama introduces a new generation of Liars who are tormented by A -- a masked killer hellbent on punishing them for the sins of their mothers, as well as their own.

Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in present day, a disparate group of teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin committed by their parents two decades ago...as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-age, horror-tinged drama Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe — in a brand-new town, with a new generation of Little Liars. Cast: Bailee Madison, Chandler Kinney, Zaria, Malia Pyles, and Maia Reficco star as our new generation of Liars. The series also stars Mallory Bechtel, Sharon Leal, Elena Goode, Lea Salonga, Eric Johnson, and Alex Aiono.

Disney Channel's Hamster & Gretel Rounds Out Cast; The Muppets Mayhem Adds More to Cast

Hamster & Gretel

Disney Channel's upcoming animated superhero comedy, Hamster & Gretel, from Disney Branded Television, will introduce Meli Povenmire in the titular role of Gretel. The series will also star Michael Cimino (Love, Victor) as Gretel's older brother, Kevin; Beck Bennett (SNL) as Gretel's pet hamster, Hamster; Joey King (Kissing Booth) as her tech-savvy cousin, Fred; Matt Jones (Bob Hearts Abishola) as the siblings' easygoing father, Dave; and Carolina Ravassa (Maya and the Three) as their charismatic mother, Carolina. Premiering this summer on Disney Channel, a sneak peek of Hamster & Gretel was released last week. Hamster & Gretel introduces Kevin and his younger sister Gretel, who are about to be bestowed superpowers by space aliens. But something goes awry, and it's Gretel and her pet hamster (named Hamster) who suddenly have new abilities. Now, protective older brother Kevin must figure out how to work with both Gretel and her pet Hamster to protect their city from mysterious dangers.




The Muppets Mayhem - Saara Chaudry and Anders Holm

Disney+ announced today that Saara Chaudry (The Mysterious Benedict Society, Holly Hobbie) and Anders Holm (Workaholics, Inventing Anna) have been cast as Hannah and JJ in the highly anticipated live-action series, The Muppets Mayhem, joining previously announced stars, Lilly Singh (A Little Late with Lilly Singh, Dollface) and Tahj Mowry (Smart Guy, Baby Daddy). The comedy series follows The Electric Mayhem Band — Dr. Teeth on vocals and keyboards, Animal on drums, Floyd Pepper on vocals and bass, Janice on vocals and lead guitar, Zoot on saxophone and Lips on trumpet — on an epic, music-filled journey to record their first-ever studio album. With the help of a driven young music executive, Nora Gibbs (Singh), the old-school Muppet band comes face to face with the current day music scene as they try to finally go platinum. Chaudry will star as series regular Hannah, Nora's younger and arguably more accomplished sister. Raised in the era of likes, shares and the idea that "if it wasn't posted, it didn't happen," Hannah translated her e-acumen and talent for enthusiastic and aspirational make-up videos into a burgeoning social media empire, complete with a legion of "Fan-a-Hannahs." Her success has unfortunately upended her dynamic with Nora. Holm was cast as recurring guest star JJ, a formerly sheepish, nerdy intern-turned uber-cool, tech entrepreneur who happens to be Nora's ex. On the surface, his ambition knows no bounds, but the real JJ underneath still hopes to win back Nora.

FX Renews What We Do in the Shadows for Seasons 5 and 6, Ahead of Season 4 Premiere; Hallmark Channel Scores in Ratings Even in Summer

What We Do in the Shadows

Proving vampire roommates might be forever, FX's What We Do in the Shadows has been renewed for fifth and sixth seasons. The series will be coming soon to Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ under the Star banner in all other territories. In its first two seasons, What We Do in the Shadows received 10 Emmy(R)Award nominations, including one for Outstanding Comedy Series. Season 3 is currently eligible for Emmy consideration and recently earned three Critics' Choice Award nominations, including one for Best Comedy Series. What We Do in the Shadows, based on the feature film by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, documents the nightly exploits of vampire roommates Nandor (Kayvan Novak), Laszlo (Matt Berry), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou) and Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch) as they navigate the modern world of Staten Island with the help of their human familiar, Guillermo (Harvey Guillén). Season four of What We Do in the Shadows premieres with two back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, July 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX and streaming the next day on Hulu. The teaser trailer is available now.

In the shocking season three finale, Nandor, Guillermo and Nadja left Staten Island to go their separate ways while Laszlo stayed home to care for the creature that clawed its way out of the chest cavity of the deceased Colin Robinson - aka Baby Colin. This season, the vampires return to Staten Island to find their mansion on the verge of total structural collapse - and with no money to repair it. While Nandor's eternal search for love finally yields results, Nadja finally realizes her dream of opening the hottest vampire nightclub in the Tri-State Area. Laszlo struggles with the question of nature versus nurture as he tries raising Baby Colin to be anything other than an energy vampire. And even Guillermo finds himself on a powerful emotional track that touches on his love for his family, and for others. With such terrifying locations as the secret supernatural Night Market, the Jersey Pine Barrens and a wedding altar, and with more strange beasts, surprising guest stars and tap dancing than ever, season four of What We Do in the Shadows continues to make the case for blood and comedy. And this time with just a touch of home renovation.


Hidden Gems

Further, the premiere propelled Hallmark Channel to become the #2 most-watched entertainment cable network in Total Day for the week among Households, Women 18+, and Total Viewers.

Antenna TV Presents The Sunday Special; Apple TV+ Comedy Loot Premieres June 24

Becker

Antenna TV Presents: The Sunday Special returns for a special showing on Sunday, June 12. This time, the Sunday Special will be a marathon of Becker. The marathon will air from 8am-1pm. The last Sunday Special marathon aired in March with a day of Bewitched episodes. In Becker, Dr. John Becker (Ted Danson) is easily annoyed -- by noisy neighbors, a ridiculous comment, a flickering streetlight, the antics of his misfit staff members. He's a talented and dedicated doctor and goes the extra mile for those in need, but he doesn't waste a chance to give anyone a piece of his mind.


Loot

Apple TV+ unveiled the star-studded trailer for its new workplace comedy Loot, starring and executive produced by Emmy Award winner Maya Rudolph (Saturday Night Live, Bridesmaids). From Emmy Award-winning creators Alan Yang (Little America, Master of None) and Matt Hubbard (30 Rock, Forever), the 10-episode comedy will debut globally with the first three episodes on Friday, June 24 on Apple TV+, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday. In addition to Rudolph, the Loot ensemble cast is led by stars Michaela Jaé Rodriguez (Pose), Ron Funches (Undateable), Nat Faxon (Married) and Joel Kim Booster (Sunnyside).

In Loot, billionaire Molly Novak (Rudolph) has a dream life, complete with private jets, a sprawling mansion, and a gigayacht — anything her heart desires. But when her husband of 20 years betrays her, she spirals publicly, becoming fuel for tabloid fodder. She's reaching rock bottom when she learns, to her surprise, that she has a charity foundation run by the no-nonsense Sofia Salinas (Rodriguez), who pleads with Molly to stop generating bad press. With her devoted assistant Nicholas (Kim Booster) by her side, and with the help of Sofia and team — including mild-mannered accountant Arthur (Faxon) and her optimistic, pop-culture-loving cousin Howard (Funches) — Molly embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Giving back to others might be what she needs to get back to herself.
