In hopes to bring the successful U.K. TV series "Broadchurch" to the U.S. airwaves, show creator Chris Chibnall and executive producer Dan Futterman brought forth the 10-episode crime drama "Gracepoint" that will cast the stars of Anna Gunn as Detective Ellie Miller and David Tennant as Detective Emmet Carver.
To premiere this coming Thursday, Oct. 2 at 9 p.m. on FOX, "Gracepoint" is said to start off in a different beat from the original.
"We did consider different starting places, different ideas for the first episode," exec producer Carolyn Bernstein revealed via TV Line. "The way that the story was told [in Broadchurch] was so well done, why would we contort ourselves? It really felt like the smartest, best launching pad." more >>
Despite the production problem the show has to meet during its filming stage, legal comedy television series "Bad Judge" is now set to hit the small screens for its freshman season with its pilot episode which will air this coming Thursday, Oct. 2, at 9 p.m. on NBC.
"No excuses, no apologies, no compromises. Wild child Rebecca Wright (Kate Walsh, 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Private Practice') knows how to have a good time, but she also happens to be one of L.A.'s toughest and most respected criminal court judges," the official NBC press release reads.
"She has a reputation for unorthodox behavior in the courtroom, including creative rulings and saying exactly what's on her mind. Her private life, on the other hand, is anything but innocent. She parties too much and rocks out on the drums in a band with her best friend, Jenny," it continued. more >>

Former "Biggest Loser" trainer Jillian Michaels has revealed the true reason she left the series, which contrasts with earlier reports that she willingly left the show.
"I asked for changes and they said no," Michaels told MailOnline in a new interview, "so in my opinion, I believe it was their choice. I was willing to stay if certain changes were made and they said no. Unfortunately, over the years we've had many differences in opinion on how I thought things should be and producers thought things should be and I didn't quit."
It wasn't the first time that Michaels left the popular weight-loss series. She originally took a break in 2006, staying on the show for five years before leaving again in 2011. Her return was hyped by the show, and fans tuned in to see the "tough as nails" trainer do what she did best, which is what contributed to her permanently leaving. more >>
