Hey All,

Here are the news items for today:

TELEVISION

British actress Hayley Atwell (Captain America) will play a policewoman who becomes obsessed with tracking down the killer of a 15-year-old girl in ITV’s (one of the main networks in the U.K.) newly commissioned TV series called Life Of Crime, which is told in three parts over three decades. It begins against the backdrop of London’s Brixton riots in 1985 when Atwell’s rookie cop discovers the body of a murdered girl; then it follows her professional and personal struggles picking up again in 1997 and in 2013. (Nancy Tartaglione at Deadline)

Buffy fans rejoice! Actor Seth Green and actress Alyson Hannigan will be reunited in an upcoming episode of How I Met Your Mother. Green will play Daryl LaCoutre, a guy who considered himself BFFs with Marshall and Lily. The only problem? They barely remember him. Now, he’s still living in their college town and is determined to have them in his life. The episode is scheduled to air on December 10. (Twitter and Give Me My Remote)

DEVELOPMENT NEWS

The USA Network is developing a new legal drama called Shadow Counsel from Law & Order writer Barry Schindel. The project centers on a former Army lawyer who, in order to crack an ongoing investigation, is recruited reluctantly by the FBI as a Shadow Counsel, a “secret” lawyer who operates in the shadows, completely off the record to circumvent existing roadblocks (hired attorneys, interrogators, etc) in classified cases. (Nellie Andreeva at Deadline)

BOX OFFICE NEWS

British actress Georgie Henley (The Chronicles of Narnia franchise) has been cast as the lead in the upcoming movie called The Sisterhood Of Night, joining up-and-comer actress Kara Hayward (Moonrise Kingdom). Henley will play Mary in the teen drama based about a secret society in a New Jersey suburb that leads to a witch-hunt. (The Deadline Team)

Q&A SECTION (with Team Watch with Kristin at E! Online)

Question: Revenge scoop would be lovely! – Quinn

Team Watch with Kristin: Brace yourselves for a pretty big revelation: Amanda was not Jack’s only friend when he was a child. (Crazy, right?!) Eddie, one of Jack’s old high school buddies who is now a cop with a chip on his shoulder, will pay him a visit in episode 10 and we’re already campaigning for a Roswell alum to guest star. (Colin Hanks, you free?)

ME: I’d say Jason Behr, as he needs the exposure seeing as he hasn’t done much in the spotlight in a VERY long time.

Question: Any good George and Zoe scoop? I’m DYING for something on them. Please and thank you. – ampdalejr89

Team Watch with Kristin: We’d ask you for your definition of good, but who are we kidding? You aren’t going to like this next bit of info, but we’re going to share it anyway! Could Zoe be getting a new love interest? The CW charmer is currently casting the likeable, sexy and charismatic Jonah, a surgeon-in-training who is in town visiting family. While he initially comes off as a little cocky (he is a former fratboy after all), Jonah also has a vulnerable side. So he’s a surgeon, like Zoe, and is a bad boy with a sensitive side? Yeah, Wade and George should definitely be worried, especially when you factor in that Jonah will be sticking around for a bit.

That’s it. Enjoy!

Have a terrific weekend!
