    Take Two Cancelled at ABC

    (11/22/18) It’s a wrap for Take Two. ABC has cancelled the summer procedural from Castle EPs Andrew W. Marlowe and Terri Edda Miller after one low-rated summer season, TVLine has learned.The series — which starred Rachel Bilson and Eddie Cibrian — premiered last June to 3.4 million viewers and a 0.5 demo rating. It wrapped its 13-episode run in September with the same demo rating but fewer overall eyeballs (2.9 million).

    TVLine has learned that Marlowe and Miller have already begun shopping the show around (with several suitors said to be expressing interest).

    The Grinder-esque Take Two found O.C. alum Bilson playing Sam Swift, the former star of a hit cop series whose epic breakdown is broadcast to the public and sends her to rehab. Desperate to restart her career, she talks her way into shadowing lone-wolf private investigator Eddie Valetik (Cibrian) as research for a potential comeback role. Though Eddie resents the babysitting gig, Sam uses the skills she learned as an actor playing a cop and proves herself to be surprisingly valuable.

    Roswell, New Mexico Welcomes The Fosters Star Sherri Saum

    (10/12/18) Lena's joining a new fam.

    E! News can exclusively reveal that The Fosters star Sherri Saum, who played Lena Adams Foster on the Freeform series for all five seasons, has joined the CW's upcoming alien series as Mimi, the mother of Maria DeLuca (Heather Hemmens), former best friend to Liz (Jeanine Mason).

    While Maria is described as an alien-oblivious socialite, her mother Mimi is "effervescent" and "charming."

    "As a young single mom—and part of very few black families in Roswell—her focus has always been on raising her daughter to embrace everything that makes them "weird" to the small-town folks, be it the color of their skin, their unique dance moves, or their connection to spirituality. As both bartender and 'psychic,' Mimi is a vault of Roswell's deepest secrets," reads the official description.

    "I was so inspired by the inclusivity of The Fosters while I was building our version of Roswell, so I'm incredibly excited to welcome Sherri Saum to our weird little alien family!" show creator Carina Adly Mackenzie said of the casting. "I'm a huge fan of her work, so I was just humbled that she even auditioned, and director Paul Wesley and I are loving the heart and gravitas she brings to a character that can be a little bit...out there."

    Saum joins a cast led by Jeanine Mason (Grey's Anatomy) as Liz, a biomedical researcher and the daughter of illegal immigrants, Nathan Parsons (The Originals) as Max, a police officer and secret alien, Tyler Blackburn (Pretty Little Liars) as Alex, a gay military veteran , Michael Trevino (The Vampire Diaries) as Kyle, the son of the town sheriff, Lily Cowles as secret alien Isobel, and Michael Vlamis as Michael, another secret alien.

    The show is a different take on the characters we met in the first series in 1999, and is based on the Roswell High series of books by Melinda Metz. It begins with Liz returning to her hometown of Roswell, New Mexico to discover that her teenage crush is a secret alien. She tries to keep his secret, but that might not last after a "violent attack" and the following politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him.

    Saum is best known for her work on The Fosters, but she's also had recurring roles on Gossip Girl, In Treatment, and Rescue Me, to name a few. She has also won the Human Rights Campaign Ally for Equality Award.

    Roswell, New Mexico will debut on the CW in spring 2019.

    ‘Good Trouble’: ‘The Fosters’ Stars Teri Polo and Sherri Saum To Reprise Roles On Spinoff Series

    (7/21/18) Callie and Mariana will reunite with their moms on Good Trouble. The Fosters stars Teri Polo and Sherri Saum are set to appear on the upcoming spinoff series Good Trouble, toplined by Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez. I hear Polo and Saum are booked for two episodes in the first half of Good Trouble‘s first season.

    Good Trouble follows Callie (Mitchell) and Mariana (Ramirez) as they embark on the next phase of their young adult lives in Los Angeles.

    Polo and Saum are the first Fosters cast members confirmed to guests star on Good Trouble, which had been designed to maintain ties with the mothership show. “We plan to have all characters from the original series make guest appearances,” Freeform EVP Karey Burke told Deadline at the time of the spinoff’s announcement in January.

    Good Trouble‘s producers had hinted that we likely will see Jude and Brandon from the original series the most as they also will live in Los Angeles.

    The Fosters centered on the Foster clan: lesbian couple Stef (Polo) and Lena (Saum), who have built a close-knit, loving family with Brandon (David Lambert), Stef’s biological son from a previous marriage; their adopted twins, Mariana (Ramirez) and Jesus (Noah Centineo); and adopted siblings Jude (Hayden Byerly) and his half-sister, Callie (Mitchell).

    Good Trouble hails from The Fosters’ three writing executive producers — Joanna Johnson, Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg — who exec produce alongside Gregory Gugliotta, Christine Sacani, Mitchell, Ramirez, Jennifer Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina. The series is produced by Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions in association with Freeform. Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians) is director and executive producer of the first episode.

    Production has begun in Los Angeles for premiere in 2019.

    Take Two on the Move

    (7/14/18) Take Two‘s Rachel Bilson and Eddie Cibrian will be on the case two hours earlier: Starting with next Thursday’s episode, the ABC detective procedural will air at 8/7c.

    The series — from Castle executive producers Andrew W. Marlowe and Terri Edda Miller — stars Cibrian as a lone-wolf private investigator who partners up with a fresh-out-of-rehab actress (Bilson).

    Next week’s installment features a mini Castle reunion, with guest star Seamus Dever (aka Castle detective Kevin Ryan) as a distraught husband and father who turns to the P.I. duo to help stop a hitman from fulfilling a contract.

    Soap star Clive Robertson’s fairy tale-like estate is for sale in the Hollywood Hills

    (7/10/18) ( A Hollywood Hills home owned by British soap star and actor Clive Robertson is for sale in the Hollywood Hills at $4.995 million.

    The French country estate, built in 1950 but reflecting a 1920s style, oozes charm. In the main house, the entry features a brick fireplace and a split staircase leading to the second level. Other fireplaces can be found in the master suite and den.

    Renovations have retained the home’s original character, such as the Juliet balcony, while updating the interiors. The 4,008 square feet of living space includes an office, four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

    The close to half-acre grounds include an outdoor dining area, a deck for entertaining and a rock-surrounded swimming pool with a spa. Stone steps lead to the one-bedroom guesthouse, which contains a living room, a kitchen and two bathrooms. Views take in the cityscape.

    Robertson, 52, has appeared on the American soap opera “Sunset Beach,” the drama “Wicked Wicked Games” and the Canadian series “Starhunter.”

    Joshua Myler and Jeff Kohl of the Agency are the listing agents.

    Castle EPs' ABC Follow-Up Take Two Gets Summer Premiere Date

    (5/15/18) Take Two, the new crime procedural from Castle EPs Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe, finally has a premiere date. And it’s in the very near future.

    The network announced Monday that the series — staring TV vets Rachel Bilson and Eddie Cibrian — will kick off its 13-episode run on Thursday, June 21 at 10/9c. It takes over the slot currently being held by Quantico, which will shift to Fridays beginning May 25.

    The Grinder-esque Take Two finds Bilson playing Sam Swift, the former star of a hit cop series whose epic breakdown is broadcast to the public and sends her to rehab. Desperate to restart her career, she talks her way into shadowing lone-wolf private investigator Eddie Valetik (Cibrian) as research for a potential comeback role. Though Eddie resents the babysitting gig, Sam uses the skills she learned as an actor playing a cop and proves herself to be surprisingly valuable.

    Miller and Marlowe had been developing Take Two for two years before ABC gave the project a straight-to-series order last November.
