No more hope for 'Raising Hope'

Posted: 10 Mar 2014 06:45 PM PDT

The TV sitcom has been cancelled after four seasons.

Fox has cancelled Raising Hope after four seasons. The sitcom's last episode will run as a two-part, one-hour finale on April 4 in the United States.

The night will kick off at 9 pm, with the episode How I Met Your Mullet, in which guest star Lesley Nicol (Downton Abbey) plays Jimmy (Lucas Neff) and Sabrina's (Shannon Woodward) new maid.

Then, in separate a half-hour titled The Father Daughter Dance, Virginia's (Martha Plimpton) dad (guest star Jeffrey Tambor, Arrested Development) returns to Natesville with a surprise for her and Burt (Garret Dillahunt), including a musical performance by Kenny Loggins (guest starring as himself).

"On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia and Raising Hope's amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons," executive producer Mike Mariano said in a statement. "We planned our Season 4 finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we've chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville. Thanks again, and we'll see you in syndication."

Kevin Reilly, chairman of entertainment and Joe Earley, chief operating officer, Fox Broadcasting Company added, "Getting to know and love the Chance family on Raising Hope has been a sweet, hilarious ride. Thanks to the incredibly talented cast – along with Greg, Mike and the entire crew – for making us laugh for four fantastic seasons."

Raising Hope, created by Garcia (The Millers), premiered in the fall of 2010. Starring Emmy Award-winners Plimpton and Cloris Leachman – along with Garret Dillahunt, Neff, Woodward and Gregg Binkley – the series follows a lovingly dysfunctional family as they raise an adorable yet unexpected addition to the family: a little girl named Hope.

In 2011, Plimpton and Leachman were both nominated for Primetime Emmy Awards for their leading (Plimpton) and guest (Leachman) roles on the show. — Reuters

'The Following', 'Brookly Nine-Nine' and more live on

Posted: 10 Mar 2014 11:50 PM PDT

Fox has renewed a string of popular shows under their belt.

The crime drama headlined by Kevin Bacon will have a third season, which Fox will unveil in early 2015. The network has also given the greenlight for new seasons of New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mindy Project.

In spite of a decline in ratings this season, The Following is slated to return to Fox for a new season, still starring Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the comedy on everyday operations at a fictional NYPD precinct, has also been guaranteed a spot in the 2014-2015 line-up. Since premiering in September 2013, the series has had a particularly eventful first season. Last January, in something of an upset, Brooklyn Nine-Nine took home two Golden Globes (best comedy series and best actor in a comedy series, for Andy Samberg). Less than one month later, the show attracted 15 million viewers in its episode aired just after the Super Bowl.

Also included in the post-Super Bowl programme this year, New Girl attracted 26 million viewers on the evening of the event. The comedy, which stars Zooey Deschanel as a cheerful school teacher, will return for its fourth season.

Finally, Fox has also renewed The Mindy Project, which will enter its third season. The comedy focuses on the life of Dr Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling), an eccentric doctor looking for her soulmate.

These four shows join Glee, The Simpsons, Bones, and Sleepy Hollow, which will also be renewed, as Fox announced previously. To find out the future of the rest of the current Fox line-up, namely the freshman series Almost Human and Rake, fans will have to wait until May 12, when the network will present its official 2014/2015 schedule in a press conference. — AFP Relaxnews

Katie Holmes is going back to TV

Posted: 09 Mar 2014 07:30 PM PDT

The actress will be joining a yet untitled drama series.

Katie Holmes may return to television in her first series regular role since Dawson's Creek. The actress has joined ABC's untitled drama pilot from Richard LaGravenese, a representative for Holmes told TheWrap.

Set in New York City, the project revolves around the love and rivalry between two equally matched, powerful socialites who play out their obsessive attraction and seduction of each other through their manipulation of others.

Holmes will play Ann, an educated New York blueblood who has never used her place in society for power. Smart, stylish and humble, she runs a charity with her husband. She's drawn into war with fellow socialites after they target her and her marriage. Rufus Sewell also stars as Philip, Ann's biggest enemy.

Aside from her six seasons on Dawson's Creek, Holmes' TV credits include Reelz Channel's The Kennedys miniseries and a recurring guest role on CBS's How I Met Your Mother. Her film credits include Batman Begins, Thank You For Smoking, and the upcoming films Miss Meadows and The Giver.

LaGravenese – who wrote the screenplays for HBO's Behind The Candelabra, the films Beautiful Creatures and Water For Elephants, among others – will write and executive-produce the project. Erwin Stoff (The Matrix), Ilene Staple and Wren Arthur (A Prairie Home Companion) will executive produce with ABC Studios. — Reuters
