Though Bryan Fuller is busy prepping his Hannibal Lecter TV series, he definitely hasn't given up on his dream to return "Star Trek" to the small screen.
The "Pushing Daisies" creator recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the long-planned project, and he confirmed that he and director/producer Bryan Singer have talked about the idea for a series. It turns out that the show still could get lift off, but not until J.J. Abrams releases his upcoming "Star Trek" sequel.
"Bryan and I are big fans of 'Trek' and have discussed a take on what we would do, and we would love to do it," Fuller said. "I don’t think anything is going to happen in any official capacity until after the next movie comes out. And I'm sure it would be wisely under J.J. Abrams' purview of what happens. He’s the guardian of 'Trek' right now."
The new "Arrested Development" series is still coming, but now we've learned that a couple of major changes to what we heard about the project in October are going to be taking place.
Development has been arrested for the past few years, but it seemed like the show was finally going to be going full steam ahead when Netflix picked up its fourth season back in November. Now scripts are being written for the new episodes, and series creator Mitch Hurwitz revealed at the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas that filming should begin over the summer.
There have been some changes to the original plan, however. Most of them are good, though we're sure some die hard fans will find something to blue themselves over here. Honestly, we don't care what form it takes, because we'll just be happy to have a new season of "Arrested Development" on a Netflix-ready device near us next year.
Westeros has seen better days. Franky, it's never been pretty over there, but the Seven Kingdoms are in even rougher shape than usual, as evidenced by the third episode of "Game of Thrones" season two, titled "What is Dead May Never Die." The Arya Stark-heavy affair saw the brutal deaths of two recurring characters, not to mention the reintroduction of Renly Baratheon, now fancying himself a king. With his return came the debut of Brienne of Tarth, the six-foot-four warrior woman now serving as part of the king's Rainbow Guard.

There just might be some trouble brewing for Jessica Lange on season two of "American Horror Story." What kind of trouble? The catty kind, which just so happens to be our favorite kind.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, French actress Lizzie Brochere has been confirmed for a part on the second season of the creepy, drama-filled FX series. And, according to sources, she could serve up some trouble for Lange, who will take on a new role as the show takes on a whole new set of story arcs.
TV Line reports that Brochere’s character will go by the name Gia. Sources add that while the role has been revamped a bit, Gia was previously described as a "fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot, the character—billed as a nemesis for Jessica Lange—was likened to Angelina Jolie in ‘Girl, Interrupted.'"
Celebrities, they're just like us! Turns out they also obsess and geek out over outstanding and/or guilty pleasure television like we do. The latest example is one Lindsay Lohan, who inadvertently confessed her love of "Homeland" as the reason she was at home glued to her TV set rather than at a L.A. nightclub last Thursday where she allegedly punched a woman in the back.
The most intriguing part of this story to me, as reported by TMZ, is not that Lohan was at home instead of at a nightclub but that she was watching "Homeland." How's that for an alibi? Everyone should be watching Showtime's expertly-crafted and acted drama, led by Claire Danes and the under-appreciated Damian Lewis, even problem-plagued former child stars.
This got me thinking about other random celebrity fans of shows - those who you wouldn't peg to be familiar with, let alone obsess over certain scripted and unscripted drama. Some unexpected pairings lurk beyond the jump!

After last week's Bastard Hunt, I've finally been able to scrub away the seared image of Joffrey's nauseating visage from the inside of my eyelids just in time for the second episode of the second season of "Game of Thrones," titled "The Night Lands."
Check out our recap past the jump!

A brief preamble: While I can’t claim that I was there from the beginning and have devoured all of George R. R. Martin’s fantastic series in literary form, I have been claiming my right to the throne ever since marathoning the first season of “Game of Thrones” over a weekend. In other words: I’m not an expert, I’m just a fan who now annoys all of his friends by constantly asking them if they’ve watched the show yet and gets frustrated when Auto-Correct messes up all of my texts in Dothraki.
By some miracle divined by the Internet Gods the shocking reveal of Ned Stark’s beheading at the end of season one remained unspoiled for me – so I approached season two not with the question of how would the death of the Stark patriarch effect the characters in the realm but rather how would it effect the show as a whole? To the Westeros virgin, Eddard seemed to be the glue of the show, and without him I was curious to see whether “Game of Thrones” would thrive or languish. Thrive it does.

Winter is here! Winter is here! Thank the Seven, winter is here! At long last, "Game of Thrones" has returned for its second season, bringing us our first new trip to Westeros since last year's dragon-birthing finale "Fire and Blood." Tonight, we kick things off with "The North Remembers," an aptly titled episode filled with Stark vengeance, Lannister cruelty and Baratheon plotting. In short: it's everything you know and love about the HBO fantasy series, just with a lot less Ned Stark. (Rest in peace, Lord of Winterfell.)
Our live-blog of the season premiere starts right now, so join in and follow along while we watch winter and war sweep over Westeros!
9:58 PM: And that's a wrap! Hope you guys enjoyed returning to Westeros as much as I did. Check back in a few hours for the first of our new "Game of Thrones" weekly video recaps, and for now, let me know what you thought of the episode in the comments or on Twitter!
Joffrey Baratheon. Robb Stark. Balon Greyjoy. Renly Baratheon. Who are we missing in the War of the Five Kings? Well, in my opinion, we're missing the big one: the new guy on the street, the man some have called Azhor Azhai Reborn. The final king to enter the ring, ladies and gentlemen, is...
Know Your King
Stannis Baratheon, the last player in the War of the Five Kings, is perhaps the most dangerous of them all. No, he doesn't behead lords for the fun of it, nor does he own a direwolf. But he does have the red woman -- and that is more than enough.
Those of us who have spent a considerable amount of time watching various television series over the years understand that there is a basic formula to season finales. You want to excite/satisfy your audience in going out with a bang, but also keep them wanting more so they return for another season. AMC's critically-acclaimed and compelling whodunit "The Killing" succeeded on both counts with its finale last season, but in doing so was met with harsh criticism from fans who did not receive a definitive answer to the show's biggest question: Who killed Rosie Larson?
In knowing how TV networks function, I have to admit that I was much more surprised at the localized outrage from certain fans than I was at the conclusion of the season. Lucky for all of us, there is a brand new season upon us and while I'd be happy to drone on about why I'll definitely be tuning into the second season premiere this Sunday, April 1 at 8pm ET/PT, I thought you might appreciate hearing some expert teasery from an insider source: star Joel Kinnaman. Minor spoilers ahead for those who still need to power through season one on DVD.
First off, what the heck is going on with Kinnaman's character Stephen Holder? Is he a dirty or clean cop?
