TVLine Items: Daredevil's Debut Teaser, Bernhard to Broke Girls and More

This is not your Affleck’s Daredevil.

Netflix today unveiled the first teaser video for its upcoming Marvel’s Daredevil series — starring Boardwalk Empire‘s Charlie Cox as the blind superhero last played by Ben Affleck in 2003’s big-screen adaptation.

Better still, the end of the video suggests an additional teaser trailer coming to the Internet on Wednesday, Feb. 4!

Ready for more nuggets of news — served, of course, with a scuppernong aioli? Well…

* Not that she needs more Excuses for Bad Behavior, but Sandra Bernhard (Switched at Birth, Roseanne) will get another when she kicks off a multi-episode arc on 2 Broke Girls, The Hollywood Reporter reveals. The comic will play a “mercurial lesbian restaurant manager” who hires Max and Caroline as a pastry chef and hostess, respectively.

* Michaela Watkins (Trophy Wife) will star in Hulu’s new comedy Casual, about a dysfunctional sibling duo grappling with modern dating while raising the sister’s teenage daughter, according to our sister site Deadline. Liz Tigelaar (Life Unexpected) will serve as executive producer, while Tara Lynn Barr (Aquarius) has signed on as Watkins’ forced-to-be-the-adult-in-the-household offspring.

* Looks like Mistresses‘ Joss won’t get off the hook with just a strongly worded email after leaving fiancé Scott at the altar at the end of Season 2. His portrayer Justin Hartley (The Young and the Restless) will be back for at least two episodes in Season 3, according to TVGuide.com.

* The force appears to be with Billie Lourd, now that the daughter of Carrie Fisher and CAA managing director Bryan Lourd has landed her first TV role as part of Fox’s upcoming Scream Queens, the new horror anthology from Ryan Murphy. Deadline broke the news.

* Emmy winner Amanda Plummer (L.A. Law) will play a villain type with “very, very dark impulses” on an upcoming installment of The Blacklist, TVGuide.com reports.

* Former Olympian and current Kardashian-adjunct Bruce Jenner is expected to grant ABC News’ Diane Sawyer his first interview since speculation surfaced that he may have begun transitioning to a woman — a journey rumored to be the basis for a new E! reality series, per Buzzfeed.

* Cinemax has ordered eight episodes of Quarry, from executive producers Greg Yaitanes (Banshee) and Steve Golin (True Detective), reports Deadline. The dark drama will focus on a Marine who returns from Vietnam in 1972 and is drawn into a “network of killing and corruption.”

* MTV is developing a scripted comedy from executive producer Jill Soloway (Transparent) and Lyle Friedman and Ashley Skidmore (#hotmessmoves) about girls who meet at summer camp, get struck by lightning and reunite a decade later to become feminist crusaders. Check out one of their videos below:

    Looking forward to the 2 broke girls working in a restaurant. It should be fun! Nice to see the show give Max and Caroline story lines outside that dump of a diner they currently work at.

      I like Han and Earl well enough, but if Sophie and Oleg never appeared again I would be thrilled. It is obvious that the two leads are all anyone is really interested in. I could see a move to another main setting as a great way to shed the salaries of people that viewers won’t miss.

    So thats a teaser for a teaser?

  4. James says:

    The DC universe will have to pick up the pace if they want to compete with Marvel, Stan Lee must be getting close to being the most prolific Sci Fi producer ever on TV and in movies.
