38 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

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.

48 minutes ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Iron Fist baddie Ramon Rodriguez is punching in at The Affair — and it looks like he’s taking aim at Alison’s (Ruth Wilson) heart.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Rodriguez is joining the Showtime drama’s upcoming fourth season for a major arc as Ben, a Marine veteran now employed by the Vha. Ben’s work on Ptsd will intersect with Alison’s new career path as a grief counselor (and, presumably, lead to some heavy petting and then fornication — the show is called The Affair for a reason!).

NBC 'Backing Off' on This Fall's Planned Must-See TV Branding Revival

1 hour ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

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.”

Fans who tune into GoT solely to see bad-ass battle scenes are surely happy with Season 7… but for those of us who also enjoy things like character development and logical consistency, this season has been a surprisingly frustrating one.
