CBS’ ‘Evil’ “Trying To Avoid Exorcism Of the Week” As Supernatural Thriller Explores Non-Binary Nature of Evil – TCA

  • Deadline
Evil deals with the complicated, non-binary nature of evil and how social media has changed its definition, creators/executive producers Robert and Michelle King said during the TCA session for the upcoming CBS psychological drama.

Evil, about a skeptical female clinical psychologist (Katja Herberts) who joins a priest-in-training (Mike Colter) as they investigate supposed miracles, demonic possessions, and other extraordinary occurrences, has had a long journey to the screen. “We’ve been writing it for the last year and researching it for the last thirty,” Michelle King said.

Robert King spoke about present-day villainy and how the show came about after conversations whether modern acts of terrorism are supernatural phenomenon or a result of our current social media landscape.

“I think the show is trying to avoid the binary… What we wanted to do is explore how social media has changed in terms of what is evil and how evil

Dream Casting Kalinda's Husband

Last night's Good Wife season finale revealed Kalinda's rarely-seen scared side when Alicia inadvertently contacted the investigator's dangerous ex-husband. And while the episode ended without showing the mystery man at Kalinda's door, creators Robert and Michelle King have said that this nameless character will play a big part in season four.

"That is intended to be a long arc," Robert King told EW.com of the role. He goes on to add that their relationship will take on a massive love/hate dynamic. "It's not exactly Fifty Shades of Grey, but the spirit of sexual dominance mixed with who's dominating who ... where love and fear are kind of combined. It just sounds like a fascinating way to see Kalinda."

I couldn't agree more! But who should play this integral role? Here are five suggestions:

Judy Reyes and Kyle MacLachlan Talk Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Episode 13.03
Law and Order: Special Victims Unit recently aired Episode 13.03: Blood Brothers on Wednesday, October 5 on NBC. Guest stars Judy Reyes and Kyle MacLachlan held a conference call to discuss this episode. Here's what they had to say below.

I was wondering if each of you could talk a little bit about how you got involved with the show.

Judy Reyes: I actually through my manager got this wonderful offer to play this character of Inez Rivera in this compelling script about this - the mother of this young kid who committed this unfortunate and heinous crime. And I loved the opportunity to play this role so I just jumped at it. And then I found out that I was involved in this. Once I read it I was involved in this unbelievable turn of events towards the end of the episode. So I jumped at the chance.

Jason O'Mara Chats Terra Nova

Terra Nova is a big deal for Fox and all those involved with the ambitious science fiction television project. For Jason O'Mara, the show's lead in the role of Jim Shannon, it's a chance to finally latch onto a project that could have some legs instead of being canned after a single season.

Fox Buys Legal Drama From Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim

Exclusive: Greg Berlanti has sold his first project under his rich new overall deal with Warner Bros Television -- a legal drama to be written by his frequent collaborator Marc Guggenheim. The project, entitled Guilty, has landed at Fox with a script commitment with penalty said to be in the put pilot range. It centers on a brilliant, morally questionable defense attorney who, after being falsely convicted of fraud and stripped of his legal license, uses his unorthodox methods to solve the cases he's been prohibited from handling and to ultimately exact revenge on the men who set him up. This marks the latest legal drama project for Guggenheim, who is a former lawyer. His first produced work was an episodic script for The Practice. He also worked on NBC's Law & Order and ABC's In Justice, and co-created with Berlanti the supernatural legal drama Eli Stone. Guggenheim, who also is a longtime comic book writer,

Terra Nova: An Undiscovered Country for Network TV?

We’ve all grown accustomed to the new television lineups featuring epic adventures-in-time-and-space sci-fi shows. It’s nothing new. Our moms and dads followed Star Trek (the various ideations), Doctor Who, Lost in Space, Battlestar Galactica, V, and countless others; it left an indelible impression on our collective psyche. Humans just love the idea of a catastrophe or an us-versus-them dynamic, and throwing in some blazing guns, soaring music, gut-clenching drama and a large dollop of fantasy fulfillment into the mix makes is undeniably attractive. We want to toy with the idea of disaster and speculations about our futures, and how we, as a race, would respond in such situations, without the actual messiness of the real thing—plus, we all just love being scared and thrilled.

However, the great sci-fi drama faded in popularity in the ‘90s; we were too preoccupied with legal and medical dramas,

The cast of Good Christian Belles

(All photos courtesy ABC)

A recently divorced mother of two moves back to the affluent Dallas suburb where she grew up. There she must do social battle with her former high school social circle - a klatch of southern belle mean girls. The story comes from a novel called Good Christian Bitches and the pilot (from Sex and the City producer Darren Starr) shared the same trenchant title until Christian and feminist groups took issue with the whole "Bitches" thing. Too bad, because the replacement settled on, Good Christian Belles, sounds a little bland. Why not Adequate Agnostic Junior Leaguers?

In any event, ABC has picked up the series, but as a 2011-2012 mid-season replacement, so you might not get to see it until next February. Too bad, because it does look entertaining and has a phenomenal cast including Annie Potts, Kristin Chenoweth and

As part of a blind script with ABC Studios, Palmer will write an untitled project loosely based on the New Zealand series Go Girls.

The Good Wife: Showrunner Leaves CBS Drama, Ratings Trouble Ahead?

Last week, there was a change in leadership at CBS' new drama The Good Wife. The series is the network's second most-popular new drama of the season so will this move hurt the show?

Showrunner and executive producer Dee Johnson is leaving the series but Michelle and Robert King, The Good Wife's co-creators and executive producers, are picking up her duties.

Johnson was initially brought in because the Kings had limited experience running a show, having worked on ABC's short-lived In Justice and a few other projects. Johnson, on the other hand, is a veteran producer and has worked on numerous shows like Commander in Chief, Army Wives, Profiler, and the original Melrose Place.

The network wanted to be sure things ran smoothly on Good Wife and hired Johnson to guide the series for the first 13 installments. Now that the
