'American Horror Story' gets a Season 4


The TV horror series' popularity keeps on rising.

Ryan Murphy's creepy anthology series American Horror Story has been granted a fourth run. FX made the announcement Wednesday, saying that the 13-episode fourth season will debut in 2014.

John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions, called series co-creator Murphy "a master television producer" in announcing the renewal.

"Time and time again he reinvents the form," Landgraf said. "What he, co-creator Brad Falchuk and their producers Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, Jennifer Salt, James Wong, Brad Buecker, Jessica Sharzer, Douglas Petrie, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Alexis Martin Woodall and the entire production team and cast responsible for the American Horror Story franchise have done is nothing short of extraordinary.

"Every year, they create a riveting and brilliant new miniseries. AHS: Coven is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the next instalment will be even better."

As is typical of the series, FX was mum on details about the untitled fourth season. At a gathering with reporters earlier this year, Murphy said that he may reveal the concept for the next season in the finale of the current season. The current third season of American Horror Story, which set a series record with its premiere episode, has been the best-rated instalment of the series so far.

With an average 7.74 million total viewers, American Horror Story: Coven is up 77% over the first season, American Horror Story: Murder House, and the second season, American Horror Story: Asylum, by 83%.

The series has also been a creative success, racking up 34 Emmy nominations throughout its run so far. — Reuters

NCIS gets a new cast member


Actress Emily Wickersham is now a series regular in the hit programme.

I Am Number Four actress Emily Wickersham has been cast as a series regular on the CBS drama NCIS, starting with the Nov 19 episode that will air in the United States.

Wickersham, whose TV credits nclude The Sopranos, The Bridge and Gossip Girl, plays NSA analyst Eleanor "Ellie" Bishop, who's described by CBS as "a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism who specialises in international threat assessment and global preparation."

Bishop will be introduced when it is discovered the Secretary of the Navy was bugged during a confidential briefing, a security breach Bishop described in exact detail two years ago in a threat analysis report.

Working side-by-side with Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the team, Bishop cross-examines the case file to help determine who is behind the crime. — Reuters

New animation on WWE stars as kids


WWE and Film Roman team up to make web series about young wrestling stars.

WWE Studios has partnered with Film Roman, The Simpsons animation studio, to co-finance and co-produce Camp WWE, a new animated web series imagining the WWE's biggest stars as kids, the companies announced Monday.

Mike Benson, a writer and co-executive producer for Entourage and The Bernie Mac Show, will write the series, which will consist of 13 three-minute episodes.

"With a combination of their unique personalities, distinctive characteristics and huge built-in loyal fan base, WWE Superstars make for ideal animation subjects in Camp WWE," Dana Booton, general manager for Film Roman, said in a statement.

"We are very pleased to be working with WWE Studios and hope that it will begin a mutually beneficial, long-term business relationship."

The show will envision WWE stars as a lot of rebellious kids who fight and claw their way through school. Their parents send them off to camp to reform their behaviour, a camp run by a strict counsellor named Mr McMahon – the name, of course, of WWE CEO Vince McMahon.

Bradley Buchanan negotiated the deal for WWE Studios while Marc Barson and Yvette Thomassian negotiated the deal for Film Roman. "Film Roman has been involved with some of the most well-known and humorous animated series," Michael Luisi, president WWE Studios, said in a statement.

"They are the perfect partners for WWE Studios to capture our Superstars in a truly unique and fun way." — Reuters
