Based on Gabriella Pierce’s novel by the same name, the show also stars ABC regulars Vanessa Williams, Dave Annable and Rachael Taylor. Creator David Wilcox is no stranger to supernatural series, having worked on Fringe and Life on Mars.
On the show, O’Quinn and Williams play the ultimate New York power couple, Gavin and Olivia Doran, who reside and own the historic 666 Park Avenue building. Taylor and Annable play a young, unmarried couple who are hired to serve as resident managers, but it becomes apparent, early on, that the Dorans have other intentions for them.

When a man walks around in a dog costume at Comic-Con, hardly anyone blinks an eye, and perhaps the reason why is that Wilfred, the FX comedy starring Elijah Wood and Jason Gann, is a good fit for the pop culture event.

The second season is already underway, and its dark humor and clever dialogue has attracted the attention of some big-time guest stars, including Robin Williams, who appeared in the first episode as Ryan’s therapist. Other guest stars this season will include Dwight Yoakam and Mary Steenburgen.

Two controversial characters are joining the cast of The Walking Dead, and they also happen to be two of most memorable from the comic book: Michonne and The Governor, played by Danai Gurira and David Morrissey, respectively. Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd and showrunner Glen Mazzara said the time was right time to introduce Michonne and the Governor to the TV show. “We wanted to open up the world,” Mazzara said. “The first two seasons is our group trying to find a safe haven. When that farm is overrun, there are no more safe havens. Now, the story is, ‘How do you live in this world?’ The Walkers are not going away. There’s no help coming. What do we do? This is about different people trying different strategies to try to rebuild their lives. That’s the story we’re telling in Season 3.”
Season 3 of The Walking Dead premieres on AMC on October 14th, as announced during the show’s Comic-Con panel. Check out what Danai Gurira, David Morrissey and Laurie Holden (who plays Andrea) had to say about bringing these fan favorites to the show after the jump.

Seven years after it became a breakout hit and cult classic, Napoleon Dynamite is being resurrected as an animated show on Fox in 2012. The new series will feature voices from the original cast, including Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez, Diedrich Bader, Jon Gries, Tina Majorino, Sandy Martin and Haylie Duff. These cast members, along with executive producer Mike Scully, were at Comic-Con to screen never-before-seen footage from the show and, after the panel, everyone participated in roundtable interviews with the press.
Bader said the script for Napoleon Dynamite is “still to this day, one of the two top scripts I’ve ever read,” the other one being the script for Office Space. Bader also said the animated show is just as hilarious as the movie. “We’ve continued the world of Napoleon. It’s very specific to that sense of humor. It’s extremely important that Jared and Jerusha [Hess] are on there, but also to have a really sympathetic writer like Mike Scully. It’s been fun. I get to play a bunch of different characters that I wouldn’t normally be cast as, like a Liger. Normally, that wouldn’t be in my roundhouse.” Check out what else he had to say about working on the new series after the jump:
