In Fox’s new Monday-night dramatic thriller PRODIGAL SON, former FBI agent-turned-NYPD profiler Malcolm Bright (Thomas Payne) has special insight into the minds of serial killers.

The first responder drama 9-1-1 begins its third season Monday nights on Fox with most of its characters in a good place. Angela Bassett’s LAPD Sergeant Athena Grant married her fire captain beau Bobby Nash (Peter Krause) at the end of Season 2, with her two teen children from her first marriage in attendance. 9-1-1 being a show about people in crisis, everybody’s cheerful mood may not make it through the first episode. However, Bassett’s positive attitude seems likely to last much longer. Also an executive producer on 9-1-1, Bassett (who was an Oscar nominee for her portrayal of Tina […]Read On »

Fox’s Wednesday-night miniseries BH90210 is not precisely a reboot of that network’s BEVERLY HILLS 90210/90210, which ran from 1990 through 2000. Instead, BH90210 features seven of the original series’ stars – Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Greene, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, and Ian Ziering, all executive producers on the new show – as versions of themselves trying to get a remake of 90210 off the ground. Garth and Spelling spearheaded the move to get BH90210 going, but most of their colleagues enthusiastically came aboard. Holdout Doherty changed her mind and signed on after the unexpected death of […]Read On »
