Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…

True Detectives, HBO’s new right-episode crime drama starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, is slated to bow in January 2014. A full-length trailer for the series — which centers on two detectives whose lives collide during a 17-year hunt for a serial killer — will debut this Sunday ahead of the Boardwalk Empire premiere.

It’s official: Mistresses Alyssa Milano will host Project Runway All Stars‘ third season, launching Oct. 24.

Starz’s new Ron Moore-helmed series Outlander has added Graham McTavish (The Hobbit) and Gary Lewis (Gangs of New York). The project follows a married combat nurse from 1945 who is swept back in time to 1743 and forced to marry another man (played by UK actor Sam Heughan).

Animal Planet has renewed My Cat From Hell for a 16-episode fifth season, to bow in 2014.

    Why the hell isn’t Mistresses renewed yet?!!

  2. Kat says:

    I’d rather have Blair back on “Switched at Birth” – I love him as “Ty”, but I’m just glad the guy stays busy! I love him really much, and I’m glad I don’t have to start watching another show because of him since I’m already watching BatB :D

  3. Annie Ilonzeh has been remembered from her role on GH as well as the short lived Charlie’s Angels TV reboot in 2011. Her Angels co-stars are currently in new TV gigs: Minka Kelly in Almost Human, Rachael Taylor in Crisis and Ramon Rodriguez in Gang Related.

    Great news for BATB! Love that show so much. And I’m really pleased by the continued diverse casting on the show. Shows they are really casting for the best person for the role.
