Jimmy Fallon is making moves on NBC, while another comedy executive producer by Ellen Degeneres also gets a thumbs up. The network has given a pilot a comedy’s starring Parenthood’s Monica Potter.The untitled series sees Potter playing a woman who is juggling her family life and 3 ex-husbands. Yes, 3. This becomes problematic when she hits the dating scene again.
Fallon’s project Sharing is a comedy about different groups working together in a shared office space. So, we’re thinking something like The Office?
Eva Longoria is returning to the small screen with a straight to order series titled Telenovela. Longoria will play a willful but popular diva Ana Maria… also the star of a popular telenovela, where the the on-screen drama is nothing compared to her off-screen drama.
And in casting news.
Chicago PD has scored a new doctor!
Shameless star Nick Gehlfuss will recur on the NBC drama as Halstead’s brother Ryan. Yeah, it’s season 2 and we didn’t even know he had a brother! But whatever.
Gehlfuss may be the first person cast for the potential spinoff Chicago Med.
Executive producer Matt Olmstead describes him as quote, ““a bit of a playboy and a successful doctor, but always off to the next good time. [He] never really sticks around when things get complicated. We’re finding him in a point in his life when he has to knuckle down and get real about being in Chicago.”
Ryan will also appear in a Chicago Fire episode, which is set to be a pilot for the possible spinoff.

WATCH: Netflix Gives Fans Sneak Peek at ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4
What goes bump in the night?
The stranger kids make it a mission to find out in the most recent sneak peek for Stranger Things.
The trailer, which premiered as part of Netflix’s “Tudum,” opens up with a family of four moving into a spacious, luxurious house.
The kids begin to notice strange occurrences before they wind up lying lifeless on the floor.
Flash-forward to the 1980s when the kids (now teens), along with Steve, arrive at the abandoned clues to find answers.
The clip also includes a grandfather clock in the attic exploding as it strikes midnight. Based on the debris floating around it, it might just be the portal to the Upside Down.
Season 4 is set to premiere in 2022 due to COVID-19 delays.
‘Controlling Britney Spears’ Documentary Premieres on FX and Hulu Tonight
“Controlling Britney Spears,” a surprise sequel to the Emmy-nominated documentary Framing Britney Spears, premieres tonight on Hulu and FX at 10/9c.
The sequel will feature the accounts as told by insiders with intimate knowledge of Spears’ daily life under the conservatorship. Additionally, it will include a detailed confidential report previously published by The New York Times, that disclosed Spears talking to a court investigator in which she described the conservatorship as “an oppressive and controlling tool against her.”
According to TVLine, in the exclusive New York Times investigation, “a portrait emerges of an intense surveillance apparatus that monitored every move she made.”
Producer Liz Day said, “Britney’s situation raises a lot of important questions about the conservatorship system at large and whether it is working properly. We felt that it was in the public interest to examine that.”
Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, became the solitary conservator over her estate in 2008. Through this, he gained control over the most important aspects of her life including financial and medical decisions.
13 years later, now 39 years old, Spears is in a legal battle trying to end the conservatorship altogether to regain control over her life. The next court hearing is set for Wednesday, September 29.
Fans can watch the documentary on FX or Hulu starting at 10 p.m.
The sequel comes just days before Netflix’s documentary titled Britney vs. Spears premieres on September 28.
The Unofficial ‘Hocus Pocus’ Cookbook Will Put a Spell on You This Halloween
I smell… a cook booo-ooo-ookk!
Hocus Pocus is a staple Halloween movie. Despite premiering nearly 30 years ago, it continues to be the go-to choice every Halloween.
It’s so iconic, in fact, that Freeform is airing it a whopping 14 times throughout the month of October as part of its annual “31 Nights of Halloween” schedule!
You’ll obviously need treats and potions to keep yourself and your loved ones satiated during the viewing party, which is where The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook: Bewitchingly Delicious Recipes for Fans of the Halloween Classic comes into play.
The spooky cookbook, written by Bridget Thoreson, features all the best and mysterious recipes from the 1993 film.
There’s something for everyone as some fan-favorite dishes include: Baked Witch Casserole; Mischief Night Pasta; Bones of 100 Chickens; Life Potion Soup; Dead Man’s Toes; Airhead Virgin Mocktail; and much more!
“I hope you enjoy this homage to Hocus Pocus as much as you enjoy the film itself,” author Bridget Thoreson said in the press release. “While blondies are no substitute for Bette and no cocktail is quite as funny as hearing a young girl humiliate her older brother by saying ‘Yabos,’ I hope you’ll find the recipes and references fun, delicious, and delightfully spooky, and you’ll rewatch the film again and again accompanied by the goodies in this booo-ooooo-ooook.”
The cookbook is the perfect gift for all ages, and a must-have for every fan, especially the OG ones.
