What We Know about New Noah Hawley FX Series “The Mastermind”
Oh boy, the Russo Brothers have joined forces with Noah Hawley on a new project that is bound to garner fan support. The name of the upcoming series is “The Mastermind.” You are probably familiar with some of the work that the Russo brothers have done, including Captain America: Civil War.

‘Family Guy’ Comic-Con Panel Pays Tribute to Adam West and Carrie Fisher; Here’s Who Will Replace Her as Peter Griffin’s Boss
Fisher, who died in December, had occasionally voiced Peter’s boss, Angela, on the show since 2005. Cranston and Nash will play a husband and wife duo on the show.
The casting was announced by executive producer Rich Appel during “Family Guy’s” San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday. The always raucous panel started off on a somber note, as creator Seth MacFarlane and the show’s cast and producers offered their memories of Fisher and Adam West, who played the mayor of Quahog.
MacFarlane remembered West as someone who “had boundless energy and instantly put everyone in a good mood… The man gave 150 percent right up to the end, »

‘Legion’ Might Bring In Professor X
I will admit, ashamed as I am, to not yet having finished watching the first season of FX’s “Legion.” While the series pilot was truly one of the best episodes of television to air this year, subsequent episodes disappointed in their stricter adherence to traditional superhero show conventions. I bailed on the show fairly early.
I’ve been assured that in later episodes the show returns to the experimental short-film aesthetic of the pilot, and have been planning to catch myself up on the series at some point down the line.

Patton Oswalt Tapped to Replace Bobby Moynihan as Lead Voice on SyFy’s ‘Happy!’
Patton Oswalt is set to replace “Saturday Night Live” veteran Bobby Moynihan as the lead voice in SyFy’s new series “Happy!,” coming out later this year. Oswalt will lend his pipes to the title character, a blue flying horse that is a positive influence on Nick Sax, played by Christopher Meloni. Sax is a grizzled ex-cop (sound familiar?) that’s now a boozing hitman in need of direction. They’ll work together in a classic odd-couple match-up to save an abducted young girl named Hailey. Moynihan had originally been cast as Happy and had voiced the character in the show’s pilot. »

Paul then confirmed the news on Twitter in a written message to fans. “Long story short… my team, Disney Channel, and I have come to the agreement it’s finally time for me to move on from the Disney family and ‘Bizaardvark,” he began. “At this point in time I am wanting to focus more on my personal brand, my YouTube channel, business ventures, growing Team 10, and working on more adult acting roles.”

Supergirl Season 3 Video: Cast Talks Up New Arrivals, Then Bursts Into Song
The SuperFlash musical episode may be well behind us, but the Supergirl cast had some songs in their heart as they dropped by TVLIne’s Comic-Con interview suite on Saturday.
For starters, the topic of Mon-El’s “mysterious” (as Chris Wood put it) whereabouts led Tony Award nominee Jeremy Jordan to serve up a short ditty. Later, TVLine Senior Digital Editor Andy Swift’s solicitation of a Supergirl theme song resulted in Wood, Jordan and — with some nudging — series lead Melissa Benoist into sharing an original tune they previously workshopped, »

Days of Our Lives: Are Chad and Abigail Destined to Be Together?
Days of Our Lives fans know that Chad and Abby have had a lot going on. We also know that Chad and Gabi seem to be making it work for them, but we have our doubts. They’re fighting – again – and we’re starting to think that Gabi might be a little bit too dramatic about things for our taste. She seems to have a penchant for drama following her around, and want to know if Chad is going to deal with that. At the end of the day, we really do think that Chad wished he’d been able to

George R.R. Martin Says a New Book Is Coming Next Year — Maybe Even Two
“A Song of Ice and Fire” readers have been waiting so long for George R.R. Martin to finish writing “The Winds of Winter” that some believe he’ll never do so. The most recent season of “Game of Thrones” covered much of what’s coming in the sixth installment of Martin’s hugely popular fantasy novels, and the most recent book, “A Dance with Dragons,” was published way back in 2011; Martin still has to finish the series with “A Dream of Spring.”

In a new blog post, Martin says that readers “will have a Westeros book from me in 2018.” There’s a catch, though: It might be the first volume of “Fire and Blood,” about the history of the Targaryen dynasties, rather than “Winds of Winter.”
