Stephen King Has Confidence in JJ Abrams for Castle Rock
There is no questioning the fact that Stephen King is one of the most prolific authors of our time, having written countless masterpieces over the years. If you doubt the validity of the aforementioned statement, just take a moment to allow your memory to remind you of how many of King’s books have been adapted for the big screen and become classics. Start with films like Pet Cemetary, The Shining, The Shawshank Redemption, and Misery for starters. There are some Stephen King fans that have not been happy with the way Hollywood has translated his novels into film, but nevertheless,

Universal Music Group Partners With ‘Beat Bugs’ Producers for Three New Music-Based Series (Exclusive)
Universal Music Group (Umg) has partnered with production company Grace/Beyond (Gb) to develop three new music-based television series, Variety has learned exclusively.
Grace/Beyond’s principal partners — Josh Wakely (pictured above), Mikael Borglund and Trevor Roy — all serve as executive producers on the Netflix animated series “Beat Bugs,” which features re-imagined versions of Beatles’ classics by music superstars including P!nk, Sia, Eddie Vedder, Rod Stewart, and many others.

NBC 'Backing Off' on This Fall's Planned Must-See TV Branding Revival
It looks unlikely that NBC’s iconic Must-See TV tagline will follow Will & Grace back to Thursday nights this fall. Peacock Chairman Robert Greenblatt tells TVLine that the network’s decision to keep This Is Us on Tuesdays — after initially announcing it would join the Will & Grace revival on Thursday — has led him to jettison (or at least dramatically scale down) plans to resurrect the Must-See TV branding campaign.
“We’re probably backing off on that,” Greenblatt says. “I don’t think you’ll see it that much.”

Game of Thrones: Is This Season Sacrificing Logic for All-Out Action?
