Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Shawn Doyle (Fargo) has been tapped to recur on USA’s Covert Affairs as Georgian diplomat Aleksandre Balenko. Though he appears trustworthy on the surface, Piper Perabo’s Annie will quickly become suspicious of his true motivations.

* TV Land has ordered 10 episodes of The Gaffigan Show, a sitcom starring Jim Gaffigan (My Boys), Michael Ian Black (Burning Live) and Adam Goldberg (Fargo). Comedy Central will re-air each episode within a week of its premiere on TV Land. The series, originally filmed (twice) as a pilot for CBS, is slated for a 2015 debut.

* FXX’s fantasy football-themed comedy The League will return for its 13-episode sixth season on Sept. 3 at 10/9c, followed by the premiere of Ali G Rezurection at 10:30 pm.

* Tony Award-winning actress Donna Murphy (Made in Jersey) will recur on the second season of ABC’s Resurrection, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Murphy will play a government agent sent to monitor Omar Epps’ Agent Bellamy.

* The CW is paying tribute to man’s best friend in January with a new two-hour special titled The World Dog Awards. The event will honor dogs “for their work in entertainment, health services and the military, along with everyday dogs who found fame on the internet.”

    Kelly looks to make a good Plastique.
    If everything else is in reruns the Dog Awards might be cute to watch.

  2. LAwoman says:

    Looking forward to the return of The League!

  3. Ginger says:

    Why is Plastique coming? She’s not even one of The Flash’s villains.

    • DCFan says:

      Firestorm will appear on the show so bring Plastique in makes sense…more sense than it did on Smallville for sure.

      • Ginger says:

        This all just seems like a way to showcase Robbie Ammell. Between the early Arrow Crossovers and Firestorm and Plastique it sounds like The Flash won’t be getting a chance to stand on his own this season.

  4. Sheldon W. says:

    Shawn Doyle on Covert Affairs? Good news! He’ll add something special while he’s there,

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Good casting on The Flash. Glad Jim’s show got picked by TVland after getting passed by CBS. Can’t wait to watch The League’s new season!
