KELLY REILLY IN ABC
 'THE BLACK BOX' SERIES
In TV news today, gorgeous Kelly Reilly (SHERLOCK HOLMES, famous for her sexy back and sexy front) will topline new ABC series THE BLACK BOX for which the network lead bidding wars earlier this year! To air next year in 13 episodes, the new drama will centre on Elizabeth Black (Reilly), a world- enowned neuroscientist who appears to have it all but is constantly haunted by her own struggle with mental illness. And that is not the only secret she’s kept locked away from her family and her new fianc√©.
GREAT ESCAPE EPIC SERIES
BBC is planning a television remake of famous classic THE GREAT ESCAPE which starred Steve McQueen and Richard Attenborough. Based on the book by Paul BrickHill, the story is set in WW2 and follows prisoners in a German POW camp who organize a mass escape from the Nazi prison!

JAMES MURRAY IS NEW

And since they've killed off tones of characters in the final episode of the first season, brought utter havoc into the futuristic town and launched a war between all kinds of alien and non alien fractions, SyFy's sf show DEFIANCE has decided to bring a new mayor into season 2! PRIMEVAL star James Murray will play a new mayor of DEFIANCE appointed by Earth Republic. Secretly attracted to the ex mayor (Julie Benz) he will appear charming and smart, but will have a dark side and will ruthlessly punish any who defy him.

LEEHOM WANG IS
STAN LEE'S 'ANNIHILATOR'

  1. A neuroscientist with mental illness could have some serious complications for the character I suppose. And, yes, Kelly Reilly is stunning in that photo.
