The CW Pilots: The Game Revival Nixed, Former Sarah Drew Vehicle Ordered, and More!

The CW is getting ready for some new programming during the 2020-21 TV season, and has given pilot orders to The Republic of Sarah and a Kung-Fu reboot featuring female leads. 

But there's also bad news about The Game revival which was recently announced as in-the-works. 

The network has decided against ordering a pilot for the series, according to Deadline. 

The Game's third chance at life was supposed to come in the form of a one-hour followup to the 2006 half-hour comedy and was coming from original creator Mara Brock Akil and Devon Gregory

Deadline reports that the network was interested in developing the series with Akil, but she decided against going solo on the project because she and Gregory had already worked on her vision of what the new incarnation would look like. 

The series was to move the action to a Baltimore setting and to mix new cast members with returning ones.

Legacies Recap: Love Takes Flight

Legacies Recap: Love Takes Flight
Love — and a whole lotta lust — was in the air on Thursday’s Legacies, which celebrated Valentine’s Day early with a visit from its horniest monster yet (which, ironically, had no actual horns).

“Cupid” was first spotted gliding over the Salvatore School by Landon, whose desperation to develop actual phoenix powers has reached a new high. Or maybe it’s a new low. I mean, I appreciate his determination, but did he really think that bouncing on a small exercise trampoline would unlock some sort of flying ability?

‘Kung Fu’ & ‘The Republic Of Sarah’ Get Pilot Orders At the CW

  • Deadline
The CW has not shied away from picking up projects originally developed at other networks — Fox or siblings CBS and Showtime — a move that has resulted in such signature CW series as Riverdale, Supergirl, Black Lightning, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and the underrated Ringer. The CW is doing it again this year with pilot orders to Kung Fu, a reimagining with a female lead of the 1970s David Carradine-starring TV series, from Greg Berlanti, and small-town drama with a female lead The Republic of Sarah, from Marc Webb. The projects had been originally developed at Fox and CBS, respectively, and both were redeveloped for the CW this cycle.

As per the framework of the CW’s setup as a co-venture between Warner Bros. and CBS, which calls for parity in pilot orders, one of the two newly picked up pilots comes from Warner Bros. TV (Kung Fu) and one from CBS

The 100 Prequel Spinoff Title Revealed — But What Does It Even Mean?

The 100 Prequel Spinoff Title Revealed — But What Does It Even Mean?
An intriguing new piece of information has been unearthed about The 100‘s proposed spinoff, but unless we’re missing something, it actually raises more questions than it answers.

The project, which will air as a backdoor pilot during the CW drama’s upcoming seventh and final season, is now titled Anaconda. It’s possible that this title could eventually become something like The 100: Anaconda, or it could end up going by a different name entirely — that is, if The CW even decides to develop it into a full-blown series. (At this point, we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves.

Female-Led Kung Fu Reboot, Former Sarah Drew Vehicle Get CW Pilot Orders

Having already ordered Superman & Lois and its Walker, Texas Ranger reboot straight to series for the 2020-21 TV season, The CW has ordered pilots for a Kung Fu reboot and The Republic of Sarah, a series that was originally developed a year ago at CBS.

Penned by Blindspot Ep and former Lost scribe Christina M. Kim, Kung Fu tells the story of how a quarter-life crisis causes a young Chinese-American woman to drop out of college and go on a life-changing journey to an isolated monastery in China. But when she returns to find her hometown overrun with crime and corruption,

Arrow Ep Reveals How Slade 'Returned' for the Series Finale's Critical Rewrite

Arrow Ep Reveals How Slade 'Returned' for the Series Finale's Critical Rewrite
The first scene of Arrow‘s series finale revisited that fateful night where Slade Wilson held Moira Queen at gunpoint, only to holster his weapon… and instead run her through with his sword. Except this time around, Oliver untied his hands in time to rise up and tackle his arch enemy, so that in this reborn universe, his and Thea’s mother would live to see another day.

The changed-up sequence played out seamlessly, as if series alum Manu Bennett was actually in the rewritten scene from Season 2, Episode 20. And that is because he was. No stand-in or reshoot here.

How Grey's Anatomy Has Handled Many High-Profile Exits Over the Years

How Grey's Anatomy Has Handled Many High-Profile Exits Over the Years
While Grey’s Anatomy fans continue wonder — and worry about — how original cast member Justin Chambers will be written off, especially since his last episode as Alex Karev has already aired, TVLine has decided to review not only how the ABC drama handled 15 other high-profile exits but also what precipitated them.

Maybe, we thought to ourselves, by doing so, we’ll be able to better predict whether Alex is going to be added to the show’s impressive body count, permanently banished to Iowa or moved to the mysterious part of Seattle that we never see on either Grey’s or its spinoff,

The Top 13 ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Deaths Ranked

  • Variety
The Top 13 ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Deaths Ranked
If there’s anyone that knows how to deliver a heart-wrenching death scene, it’s the team behind ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.” Created by Shonda Rhimes, the broadcast medical drama came out of the gate in 2005 with literal life and death stakes for its characters. Being set in a hospital meant that mortality was a constant theme that touched the lives of every one who walked through the doors, be they of-the-week patients or support staff, or full-time cast members — no one is immune to the cold touch of death.

Now showrun by Krista Vernoff, “Grey’s Anatomy” has become the longest-running medical drama on television and, as such, the show has accumulated a record-high body count.

There have been quite a few of memorable ones that caused tears to be shed but not buckets to be cried. Those include Bonnie Crasnoff (Monica Keena), who was admitted after a train crash

Grey's Anatomy Loses Original Series Regular as Justin Chambers Exits

Alex Karev is peacing out of Grey's Anatomy.

The original series regular, who has appeared since the ABC juggernaut debuted in 2005, is exiting during Grey's Anatomy Season 16.

“There’s no good time to say goodbye to a show and character that’s defined so much of my life for the past 15 years,” Chambers said in a statement to Deadline.

“For some time now, however, I have hoped to diversify my acting roles and career choices. And, as I turn 50 and am blessed with my remarkable, supportive wife and five wonderful children, now is that time."

"As I move on from Grey’s Anatomy, I want to thank the ABC family, Shonda Rimes, original cast members Ellen Pompeo, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens, and the rest of the amazing cast and crew, both past and present, and, of course, the fans for an extraordinary ride.”

Twinkle All the Way: Christmas Bumps and Family Feels!

It's Ok to admit it.

Twinkle All the Way gave you Christmas bumps, didn't it?

Lifetime is determined to get you in the Christmas spirit, and now that the Turkey holiday is nearly behind us, there's no reason not to be feeling the holiday spirit.

Sarah Drew is no longer on Grey's Anatomy, but she has another Lifetime holiday movie under her belt.

She's earning a title as one of Lifetime's Christmas Queens.

If you missed April Kepner, then you got a little taste of her via Cadence Clark. Yes, that was her name, and it's fabulous. It still didn't have anything on a grown woman named Twinkle, but brilliant, nonetheless.

Cadence had a familiar anal-retentive quality reminiscent of one of Grey's Sloan's former fan-favorites, and it makes you wonder what Sarah Drew is like in real life since she plays these type of characters so well.

Cadence was passionate about wedding planning,

Grey's Anatomy: The 10 Worst Things April Kepner Has Ever Done

Fans of Grey's Anatomy were sad to hear that Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw would depart the show. Drew played two characters in total; she was cast as a patient on Private Practice but was known more for her role as Dr. April Kepner. April made her first appearance on Grey's Anatomy in Season 6, coming in during the hospital's merger.

She would then be involved in some of the show's biggest storylines, including a crisis of faith and discovering her child had osteogenesis imperfecta. Although fans grew to love Kepner by the end of her time, she had to go through a lot of tribulations to get there. Here are the 10 worst things April has done.

With Half the Cast of Grey's Anatomy Gone Next Season, Who's Doing Their Jobs?

With Half the Cast of Grey's Anatomy Gone Next Season, Who's Doing Their Jobs?
By the end of the season 15 finale of Grey's Anatomy, quite a bit had changed at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. "Jump Into the Fog" sees Meredith, Alex, and Richard fired, Jo checking into an inpatient treatment program for her depression, and Teddy presumably going on maternity leave. And while we'd like to hope everything will turn out Ok, it's concerning that Andrew DeLuca is still in jail and that Jackson Avery appears to be missing entirely.

What is the show going to do without its chiefs of general surgery and pediatrics? Who's going to fill in as chief of trauma while Teddy is on leave? Who will run the residency program now that Richard's gone? And please tell me we aren't going to need a new chief of plastics!

All these job openings at Grey Sloan leave a lot of room to shake up the cast and see a few of them in new roles.

After a Season Away, I'm Calling It: Grey's Anatomy Needs April Kepner Back

After a Season Away, I'm Calling It: Grey's Anatomy Needs April Kepner Back
When the writers of Grey's Anatomy claimed that they were writing Sarah Drew's character, April Kepner, off the show for creative reasons, I was . . . wary. April had just come off of what was arguably one of her strongest seasons on the show, in which she went through a crisis of faith, sank into a deep depression and pattern of self-destructive behavior, and clawed her way out of it again only to wind up nearly dying -- before deciding to quit practicing medicine and get married to her ex-fiancé, Matthew, in the season 14 finale.

Unlike Arizona Robbins, whose storyline in season 14 did a good job laying the groundwork for her to ultimately decide to move to New York with her daughter, Sofia, April's only seemed to provide more and more reasons why she should stay. After all, up until the moment April decided to leave, it had seemed as though

NCIS Season 16 Episode 17 Review: Silent Service

Yowza indeed.

Is it wrong that what I considered the best parts of NCIS Season 16 Episode 17 had nothing at all to do with World War III and everything to do with little pleasures in life such as humorously speaking your mind?

I sure hope not because the case of the week was very tough to swallow, no matter how small it got chopped.

Despite the rousing laughter in the featured photo, there shouldn't have been anything all that funny going on with the investigation NCIS was conducting.

What began as a simple look into a dead Petty Officer turned into an internet troll's attempt to start World War III.
