'Franklin & Bash': Heather Locklear says the new boss is Amanda Woodward 2.0

If a network wants to boost its "Bash," adding Heather Locklear isn't a bad way to go.

The actress, considered a good-luck charm by the late television uber-producer Aaron Spelling -- who cast her in "Dynasty," "T.J. Hooker" and arguably her biggest career success to date, "Melrose Place" -- returns to series work by joining the regular cast of TNT's law drama "Franklin & Bash" when it starts its third season Wednesday, June 19.

She plays the firm's new partner, Rachel King, a hard-charging professional who's more than a bit reminiscent of her "Melrose" character, Amanda Woodward. And that's hardly by coincidence, Locklear tells Zap2it.

"I'm so lucky," she says. "When this came, I was like, 'Oh, this should be fine.' The character was already pretty laid out for me, and I'm just adding what I would do on a daily basis in my acting.

"And though I thought it was going to be easy,

Heather Locklear to star in possibly the best Lifetime movie ever

Don't Blink Redux | Doctor Who, "Flesh and Stone"

  • Pajiba
"We have no need of comfy chairs."

Picking up where we left off last week for the first official cliffhanger of Doctor Who's eleventh incarnation, Amy, River, the clerics, and the Doctor find themselves standing upside down on the underside of the Byzantium's hull. The exploding gravity globe created enough of an updraft for their jump to reach the ship, which still had its artificial gravity in effect. Below - or above from their perspective - wait the Weeping Angels, whose features are becoming more defined as they ingest the power from the Byzantium's leaking radiation.

The Doctor uses the trusty sonic screwdriver to gain access to the interior of the ship. The ship's interior gravity orients them to the floor, but they are immediately trapped inside the corridor. Outside, the Weeping Angels are also able to jump up to the ship, break open the hatch, and enter the

Official Poster Unveiled for Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer

Summit has just debuted the official poster for Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer today. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to see the film and I actually really enjoyed it. In fact, I was quoted in USA Today talking about how great it was and my thoughts the situation. It's a great mystery film with a great cast and an incredible story with some riveting twists and turns. And the score by Alexandre Desplat was incredible as well. To reference my own quote from USA Today, "it's very Hitchcockian." This poster looks pretty good, I love Pierce Brosnan on the wall behind him. Watch the first trailer here as well if you haven't seen it yet! The Ghost Writer is directed by Oscar winning Polish-French filmmaker Roman Polanski, of many great films including When Angels Fall, Repulsion, Dance of the Vampires, Rosemary's Baby, Chinatown, Frantic, The Ninth Gate,

I've been very excited for this ever since we debuted that teaser last summer but this is the crème de la crème.

Unaired Fear Itself Episodes Hitting FEARnet in September

"Fear Itself" should be pretty fresh in your minds considering it's hitting DVD soon with some very bitchin' artwork. The short-lived show was like the unofficial third season of "Masters of Horror". For various reasons it was pulled before it could run its final five episodes. FEARnet is out to fix all that.

Starting on September 2nd the final five will begin being aired. Below you'll find a synopsis of each episode and when you can tune in to see them.

"Something With Bite," directed by Ernest Dickerson (NBC’s "Heroes"), is a reinvention of the classic werewolf story from writer Max Landis ("Masters of Horror"), the son of John Landis ("An American Werewolf in London").
