ABC is doubling down on Marvel TV shows.
First, Agents of SHIELD is returning for a second season. That move was pretty widely expected, despite the show’s somewhat modest ratings performance.
Plus, ABC has also greenlit to series its Captain America spin-off Agent Carter (or, as the studio insists it’s titled, Marvel’s Agent Carter).
Official description of the new series from ABC: “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” starring “Captain America’s” Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with the short “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.” “Marvel’s Agent Carter” stars Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter. Executive producers are Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters, Steve McFeely & Christopher Marcus, and Jeph Loeb.
Rising tension between Sherlock and Watson bring their partnership to a crossroads, but they endeavor to put their differences aside while they help Sherlock's brother, Mycroft, who faces accusations of treason and murder.
Director J.C. Chandor turns back the clock to 1981, one of the deadliest years in New York City history, for A Most Violent Year, an action-packed drama (due this fall) about surviving the American dream. Oscar Isaac plays Abel, a principled gas businessman whose growing profits bump up against the New York underworld. His wife, Anna (Jessica Chastain), has some Brooklyn connections who might be able to lend some muscle when rivals start hijacking their gas trucks.“Her father and brother are well-connected on the wrong side of the law and Abel is not,” says Chastain. “There are certain things he won’t do, [so] she thinks maybe she has to. Like, maybe I have to be the man, too.”

Tyra Banks is not one to keep her self-doubt a secret.
When the supermodel and her mother, Carolyn London, launched a program in 1999 to mentor young girls – the TZONE Foundation – Banks realized the importance of sharing the insecurities she experienced while growing up.
"The summer I turned 11 years old, I lost 30 lbs. and I had a growth spurt," Banks, 40, tells PEOPLE in this week's issue. "And it wasn't even supermodel thin. It was more than that. Some people thought I had an eating disorder." She didn't.
"There was nothing I could do to gain weight," she says, "It was in the 1980s during the Ethiopian famine, and I got a lot of comments."
Banks had to visit the doctor repeatedly. "I was poked with a lot of needles to see what was wrong with me. I was even misdiagnosed with gigantism," she says.
Gradually, as she grew up, she started to gain weight and fill out.
"Who would have thought that the girl who was forced to go to the hospital because she's so skinny would one day be called too fat?" says Banks. "I know the pain of somebody who's too thin and the pain of somebody that people say is too big."
"That 11-year-old girl always lives inside of me," says Banks, who works with young women on everything from self-esteem to the importance of elocution and entrepreneurship.
"I show them un-retouched photos of myself," says Banks. "They're like, 'Whoa.' But I tell them the truth. I want every girl to find their own beauty."
The America's Next Top Model executive producer remembers the moment when she knew she wanted to do more to help young girls, which was during her book tour for Tyra's Beauty Inside and Out.
"There was a girl with a black eye," she recalls. "And she said, 'How do I cover my black eye? My boyfriend hit me and I need to know how to cover it.' I will never forget it. I knew I had to go further and do more," says Banks.
It's a feeling she tapped into to partner with the Lower Eastside Girls Center for Community in New York and launch an ongoing TZONE Foundation program.
"I never want to be someone to just check a box and not show up," says Banks, who is hosting the second annual TZONE Foundation Flawsome Ball on May 6 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. "I want to be a part of this."
"Flaws are awesome – so, 'flawsome!' I love making up a word."
“Elderflower cordial,” she said her cocktail was called. It’s a very British drink, dainty and girlish, just like Suki herself.
She’s had a nutty week. Though she has been modeling since her teens — she’s now 22 — her career has really taken off in the last year. She’s been in various advertising campaigns, including Burberry, and has even landed some bit acting roles. That she has been dating Cooper only added some Hollywood pizzazz to her profile. This week, things went to the next level when she made her most high-profile appearance yet — on the red carpet at the Met ball alongside Cooper, one of the cochairs.
She’s not intimidated by any of it, though.
“It’s actually been way more relaxed than you think. Everything’s been really easy once you know what you’re doing and you’ve got your dress and your s--t sorted out. If you’ve got your s--t together, you’re fine.” Then you’re inside and it’s — how was it, Suki? — “pretty f---ing cool.”
She was asked if Cooper felt at home in that crowd of fashionistas, who are more her people. “You’d have to ask him.” There was it again, that Suki sass.
Cooper couldn’t make it to where Suki was now, a dinner coinciding with the annual Frieze Art Fair in honor of artists at the New Museum, where the hosting duties fell to herself, Burberry, W magazine and the museum’s director, Lisa Phillips.
Frieze is a first for Suki too, and she’s spending all of Thursday museum-ing, as she referred to it. “I have it written down. I’m going to the Neuehouse, the Gragosian [sic] — sorry I can’t say it — and the MoMA,” she said. Even the way she mispronounces Gagosian is adorable. “But then I’m also going shopping. I’ve got quite a lot to do.” No kidding.
The dinner was the first of the string of events that explode every year around Frieze. Maggie Gyllenhaal, Dianna Agron, Tracey Emin, “Belle” star Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophie Auster and Lily Donaldson were in attendance. Naomi Campbell and Olivier Rousteing came late with W fashion director Edward Enninful, who had just received an award from the New York Urban League elsewhere in town. Agron is a regular on the international art fair circuit.
“I have a couple of pieces I’ve bought for myself. It’s not often that I indulge but that’s because I have a mortgage to pay,” she said. “I’ve done a lot of indie films in the last few years and those are not the breadwinners so you have to watch your spending.”
Gyllenhaal came all the way from the Dior cruise show at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. She switched clothes on the way over, from Dior into Burberry. “Wouldn’t you?” she said. The actress took in Frieze last year, but she’s skipping this one.
“It’s too hectic,” her husband Peter Sarsgaard chimed in. “It’s the way people in New Orleans don’t go to Mardi Gras.”
Sherri Shepherd and her husband Lamar Sally are splitting up and their breakup is already incredibly nasty. “He is giving her the blues,” a source close to the situation reveals about The View host’s relationship with her estranged husband. “Their whole relationship was built on a fraud and it’s finally over. She’s thrown him out of the house and he’s tried to speak with her but nothing is happening.”
According to the source, Shepherd, 47, has been frustrated with Sally, 43, and his promises of having a successful career. “Lamar told Sherri that he was a big Hollywood player, with scripts being sold. But she’s tired of being married to a guy that doesn’t have a job.” Another source claims that Sally has been working and sold a series to HBO but that never made it to air“Lamar is a very good writer and has won numerous awards,” the source said. “He also produced Sherri’s comedy show and that turned out really good. He did an excellent job with that.”
This is the second marriage for Shepherd, who tied the knot with Sally in 2011 with her View co-host Elisabeth Hasselback as a bridesmaid, and the source said he has been a blessing to her young son. “Lamar was a father figure to Jeffrey, and he really took care of the boy. He really loves him and was great with him.” When reached for comment, Sally told Radar that he misses Shepherd’s son Jeffrey. “I was great with Jeffrey. He was in my life for four years.” However, the source revealed this isn’t enough for Shepherd. “Sherri doesn’t need or want a babysitter for her son, she wants an equal partner.”
Fact: Over the last three seasons, Revenge has pretty much mastered the art of the OMG moment.
But dare we say Sunday's season finale may just feature not one, not two, but three of the ABC sudser's best shockers ever?! (Oh yes, we went there and we bought property.)
However, before we get to the finale, titled "Execution," let's take a moment to look back on some of the biggest twists Revenge has delivered so far.
In the exclusive video above, Revenge's Top 5 OMG moments are revealed, but which shocker takes the number one slot?
Tyler's (Ashton Holmes) epic season one death and Emily (Emily VanCamp) confessing her true identity to Jack (Nick Wechsler) both made the list, but failed to take the number one slot. Watch the exclusive clip above to find out which major twist takes the title of Revenge's best-yet.
Plus, the video features a sneak peek at some of the craziness you'll be seeing this Sunday, including a stabbing and someone attempting to choke out Victoria (Madeleine Stowe)!
In the finale, fans can expect to see Emily go all the way in her mission to avenge her father and nothing is off limits as she and Victoria are intent on destroying each other. (And one may just actually succeed!)
Revenge's season three finale airs on Sunday at 10 p.m. on ABC.
Don't forget to glue your wigs bbs!
What comes after “The Colbert Report”?
On Comedy Central it will be “The Minority Report” and the host will be the “Senior Black Correspondent” from “The Daily Show” — otherwise known as Larry Wilmore.
Comedy Central has concluded a deal with Jon Stewart’s production company, Busboy Productions, to create the follow-up show to the Emmy-winning “Colbert Report,” which will be coming to an end in the next year when its star, Stephen Colbert, leaves to succeed David Letterman on CBS’s “Late Show.”
The idea for “The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore,” as the show will be known, came from Mr. Stewart himself, who proposed that the 11:30 p.m. time period behind his nightly “Daily Show” was the ideal place for a new format, one that that would "provide an opportunity for the underrepresented voices out there,” as Michele Ganeless, the president of Comedy Central put it in an interview.
The idea is to have a panel of those voices led by Mr. Wilmore, commenting on the issues of the day – but in a comedy, scripted format, Ms. Ganeless said.
Mr. Colbert will work on “The Colbert Report” until Dec. 17. “The Minority Report” will be introduced in January.
Mr. Wilmore, a well-regarded comedy performer and writer, has been a regular presence on Mr. Stewart’s “Daily Show” since 2006, usually commenting satirically on issues dealing with racial attitudes in America.
He has also been a successful writer for television, having created the widely praised series “The Bernie Mac Show” and written for other shows, such as “The Office” (where he also memorably played “Mr. Brown” in one of that comedy’s signature episodes), “In Living Color," "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” and “The Jamie Foxx Show.”
He has also been a successful writer for television, having created the widely praised series “The Bernie Mac Show.” He has written for other shows, such as “The Office” (where he also memorably played “Mr. Brown” in one of that comedy’s signature episodes), “In Living Color,” “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” and “The Jamie Foxx Show.”
As an actor he has appeared in such movies as “Dinner for Schmucks” and TV shows including “Love Bites” and “Happy Endings.” He is also the author of the 2009 book, “I’d Rather We Got Casinos and Other Black Thoughts.”
Mr. Wilmore, who is 52, attended California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
The roster of correspondents and commentators for “The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore” will be named later.
With Mr. Colbert’s impending departure, along with the decision by Craig Ferguson to leave his CBS show, much attention has been focused on whether a woman or member of a minority group would be added to the competition in late-night comedy. Mr. Wilmore’s name was among several suggested for the Comedy Central opening.
Earlier this week, ABC ordered a new sitcom called “Black-ish,” and Mr. Wilmore was listed as an executive producer. He was expected to be the show runner on that series, a role he will have to give up to accept the starring position on “The Minority Report.”
During promotions for “The Fault in Our Stars,” Shailene Woodley scored the cover of InStyle's June 2014 issue.
While striking a pose in a stunning floral dress for the Giampaolo Sgura-shot spread, the “Divergent” beauty opened up about losing weight to portray the ill teenager in her upcoming film and growing up with scoliosis.
On her weight loss:
"I look at pictures of me with long hair and I think, 'Who is that person?' Even my voice and the way I hold myself has changed. I'm in a place where I feel healthier than I've ever been, and my body is exactly where it wants to be. I feel like I'm a woman. My boobs shrank. No one tells you that when you lose weight. No bra, no problem!"
On her scoliosis:
“My friends and I named my brace Casey. I took it off to eat, to go on dates, and to shower. It was uncomfortable, but I thought, 'I can complain, or I can embrace it, literally, and move on.'"
On her role in “The Fault in Our Stars”:
"It changed my whole life and put things in perspective. I realized I was good at being outwardly positive because that's how I am by nature. But internally? I was so mean to myself. Realizing I needed to make a shift was a big moment for me. 'F**k you, insecurity. F**k you, lack of confidence!' When I finally realized I have to live life for myself and not for anyone else is when I started being more generous and kind and grateful, I was able to give back more."

Hope everyone has a good weekend :)
This season of Glee has seen Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) win her dream role as Fanny Brice in a Broadway revival of Funny Girl. But are Michele and series co-creator Ryan Murphy, who owns the rights to the show, planning their own real-life revival of the iconic musical? Earlier this year, Michele gave interviews saying that the pair were indeed interested in bringing Girl to the stage.
Now, Murphy is confirming those discussions. While sitting down with EW for this week’s cover on his adaptation of HBO’s The Normal Heart, Murphy revealed, “I have the rights to it. It’s something that we’re talking about. I’ve never done Broadway. I’ve always wanted to. Right now, we’re just sort of testing the waters with different people.”
But he adds that the project has a ways to go. He says, “[Lea] and I have made no mistake of our mutual love for that property, so if it could come together at a time that she’d be willing to make that commitment to go back to Broadway — which I don’t know that she is right now — it would have to be the right director and the right leading man.”
Put away that duck face, Katie Holmes!
The Alterna Haircare co-owner and brand ambassador was spotted taking a duck face selfie (a big no-no in the selfie rule book) while attending a product launch for the brand on Wednesday in NYC. During the launch, she spoke about her experience at the Met Gala on Monday evening, dishing on why she missed the dinner as well as her opinion on Frank Ocean's performance.
"I had a great time," Holmes, who donned a Nina Ricci dress and Alaïa stilettos for the annual fashion fete, said. "Frank Ocean did a great job and the exhibition was divine. But I missed dinner because I went to the bathroom. It took so long to get to the bathroom and back."
Holmes shared her thoughts at the "intimate breakfast" which was attended by only about "50 people" (no other celebs attended) in honor of the launch of Alterna's new Caviar Replenishing Moisture Milk.
As a nod to the product, the "industrial space was converted into an all-white milk-themed event" which included a milk bar for smoothies as well as all-white flooring, according to an eyewitness.
"I love the ingredients that they use in the products," said Holmes. "I'm really excited about the Caviar Replenishing Moisture Milk product, especially after the winter we had."
Holmes flaunted her fashionable side in a purple chiffon dress which she paired with strappy sky-high sandals. She wore her hair down in soft curls and added minimal gold jewelry to her pretty ensemble.
While Holmes looked lovely as she promoted the product, the actress found herself on many a worst dressed list following the 2014 Met Gala after she rocked an over-the-top canary yellow dress which looked a lot like the gown worn by Disney princess Belle.
Next time, stick with a simple look, Katie!
Austin Mahone is at the top of his game.
The 18-year-old singer, who recently teamed up with Allstate to promote safe driving for teens, is releasing his highly anticipated new EP ‘The Secret’ this month and is getting ready to head out on the road headlining a summer tour. Oh, and he just recorded a song written by Justin Bieber, and Mahomies + Beliebers can’t stop freaking out.
The ‘MMM Yeah’ singer chatted with PopCrush about all of his exciting new ventures, including new details about the JB track, his upcoming EP and even what the word is on a full-length album.
We think it’s great that you teamed up with Allstate to promote safe driving. Can you tell us a little bit about your involvement with that?
Yeah, so I teamed up with the Allstate Foundation to basically inform teens why it’s important to drive safe. I feel I’m new on the road, so it’s important to do these three main things: The first one is buckle up, the second one is slow down, don’t speed, and the third one is don’t let your friends distract you in the car. If they’re trying to take a picture or turn the radio really loud, tell them to just knock it off because it’s important to drive safe. And if anyone has anything more they want to know about the foundation, they can go to TeensGetThereSafe.com, and you’ll find some more tips.
What is it about this cause that makes it so important to you?
It’s important to me because … I’m new on the road, and it’s actually the number one killer of teens in America. That’s pretty insane right there.
Taking this stance definitely puts you in a role model position. How does it feel to know that your actions are impacting so many lives?
It’s amazing to me to know that my actions are impacting a lot of lives because a lot of people look up to me as a role model, and I think that’s amazing. I want to do my part to be a good role model to people and show them the right things to do.
Your second EP, ‘The Secret,’ is coming out on May 27. Is there one song on the release that is the most personal to you?
I would pick … there is one song on there called ‘All I Ever Need’ that I wrote myself, so that’s pretty cool. I was in my bathroom, and I wrote it in there, and I just got the idea and I just started writing … I write a lot of my songs in the bathroom. It’s really strange, but whatever works, right?
Since the EP is called ‘The Secret,’ do you have a secret talent or hobby that fans would be surprised to know about?
A secret talent or hobby… Hmm … I weirdly collect shot glasses. [I have] about 200. I usually get them from each place that I go to. [My favorite] is probably the one from Texas.
Home state souvenir! Do you have any plans to release a full-length album in the near future?
Yeah, I’m trying to get one out by the end of this year, around November or so. But if not, I’ll have one by next year.
That’s awesome! Would you include any of the songs from your previous EPs on there, or would it be entirely new material?
Definitely all new material.
Have you started recording any of that yet?
Yeah, I’ve been recording ever since I announced my EP ['The Secret'], so I’m always working on some music and new stuff. So, I’m gonna have a lot of cool songs that I’ve been working on to show everyone.
Speaking of recording new music, all of us at PopCrush are super excited about your collaboration with Justin Bieber. We know you’ve revealed some details about it already, but can you tell us a little more? Do you guys both sing on the track?
No, it’s not a [duet]. It’s a song that he had written and gave to me, so he was in the studio helping me record that. I’m not sure if it will come out yet, but if it does, it will probably come out by the end of the year or by next year.
What is the vibe of the song like? Is it like a ballad, or more upbeat …?
It’s not really a ballad; it’s kind of like a mid-tempo, R&B-pop type deal.
Can you share an anecdote from the recording session?
We basically just went in there and I recorded the song. [Justin] was in there helping me, giving me some studio tips and all that. It was a real chill vibe and it was a good time.
Did he give you any specific advice?
He was helping me out and giving me different tips on how to sing different words and how to warm up differently. Just stuff like that.
Do you have any other collaborations going on right now?
I have no other collaborations going on right now, but I’d love to collaborate with Drake. It’s definitely a dream, but I’m trying to make it happen as well, so hopefully some day I’ll get to do that.
Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend, and you and your mom are super close. Do you have any special plans for the holiday? Any special memory that you can share?
I’ll probably take her to a nice dinner or something. Something nice. It’s so hard [to pick one favorite memory] — we have a lot of special memories because it was just me and her growing up. We did a lot of fun stuff together; we did a lot of traveling. I remember one year we went to Albuquerque, [New Mexico] for the hot air balloon festival there. It was cool! It was a lot of fun.
What can you tell us about your upcoming tour?
I have my own headlining tour starting in July, and I’ll have Alex Angelo, Fifth Harmony, Shawn Mendes and the Vamps opening for me, so that will be really cool.
Fifth Harmony are known to be pranksters. Are you prepared for that?
Definitely! I have some pranks up my sleeve, but I can’t give away my tricks.
Guess we’ll just have to wait and see in concert!
Bravo's drama development slate includes a television adaptation of The Rules Of Attraction.
Bret Easton Ellis's darkly comic book was previously adapted by writer-director Roger Avary for a 2002 film that starred James van der Beek and Ian Somerhalder.
Easton Ellis and Avary are re-teaming for this potential television version of The Rules Of Attraction - which will show a murder mystery from 12 different points of view - for Bravo.
Cast it, ONTD!
