‘Quantico’ Series Premiere Preview: “Run”

QUANTICO - "Run" -- A diverse group of recruits has arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training. They are the best and the brightest, so it seems impossible that one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11. "Quantico" airs SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/Eric Liebowitz) PRIYANKA CHOPRA

ABC’s latest whodunnit is one of their best dramas this fall.

Quantico follows a diverse group of recruits that have arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training. They are the best, the brightest and the most vetted, so it seems impossible that one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.

“Flashing back and forth between the future—the aftermath of a terrorist attack on Grand Central Station—and the present—a 20-week training course at the FBI Academy in Quantico, VA—we follow the lives of seven FBI recruits. These young adults are pushed to the brink as the class is gradually whittled down, until only the finest candidates remain. Haunted by questions about her late father and his mysterious career as an undercover agent, Alex Parrish joins the FBI searching for answers. Her fellow trainees include Ryan Booth (ex-military), Shelby Wyatt (an orphaned Southern belle), Eric Packer (a Mormon with a troubled past), Simon Asher (the first openly gay FBI recruit), Nimah Amin (an observant Muslim with a double life), and Caleb Haas (for whom the FBI is a family business). Their mentors at the Academy—Miranda Shaw and Liam O’Connor—have boundless experience but a complicated history with the Bureau and each other. When Alex Parrish learns that she’s been framed for the terrorist event, she has to run for her life while trying to figure out which of her former classmates is the real terrorist before they strike again.”

The series stars Priyanka Chopra as Alex Parrish, Josh Hopkins as Liam O’Connor, Jake McLaughlin as Ryan Booth, Aunjanue Ellis as Miranda Shaw, Johanna Braddy as Shelby Wyatt, Tate Ellington as Simon Asher, Graham Rogers as Caleb Haas and Yasmine Al Massri as Nimah Amin.

‘Scandal’ Premiere Preview: “Heavy is the Head”

SCANDAL - "Heavy is the Head" - Olivia and Fitz are back together again and enjoying every scandalous moment together while Cyrus, Mellie and Huck are all still dealing with the aftermath of helping Command. Meanwhile, when a visit from the Queen of Caldonia and her family turns into a tragedy, Olivia is hired to make sure the Royal family's private life stays private, on the Season 5 premiere of "Scandal," THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 24 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/Eric McCandless) DARBY STANCHFIELD, KERRY WASHINGTON

“What happens now?”

“Whatever we want.”

Well, a whole lot of craziness went down in the Season 4 finale that I’m still trying to process. Let’s do a little recap, shall we? Mellie got herself into a big ole mess with Damascus aka Eli Pope aka Rowen, which ended up securing her Senate seat, but at what cost? She inadvertently killed the entire B613 jury just by handing out a list of names. And who killed all those people? Huck did and Quinn was the only one to figure it out, mostly because they’re both obsessed with killing people and she recognized his moves. She basically puts a gun to his head saying she should kill him. He wants her to. Sadly we had to wait all summer to find out what happened.

Meanwhile, Fitz finds out about Mellie’s little secret and ends up kicking her out of the house…the White House that is. Not like that’s really going to make a difference. Except now he can live happily ever after with Liz in Vermont. Oh, and let’s not forget about Fitz firing Cyrus. I mean….good lord! That should have been done years ago, but he’s good, I mean, bad, but great!

Anywho, will we find Liv and Fitz just “snuggling” in a bed in their Vermont home? The trailer definitely leads us to believe that is the case.

I’m so excited to see how Shonda will handle all the drama this season. I’m headed over to buy a bunch of red wine. This will be me tonight.

‘Scream Queens’ Premiere Preview: Welcome to Hell Week

Sororities and college and murder, oh, my!

Fox’s new scare-com series Scream Queens is about to make a bloody splash on your television. Ryan Murphy’s new comedy-horror series stars Emma Roberts, Lea Michelle, Jamie Lee Curtis, Oliver Hudson, and Keke Palmer. You’ll even spot megastars Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas on campus. The new anthology series revolves around a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders and is set in the Kappa House sorority.

Fox Synopsis: “Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by CHANEL OBERLIN (Emma Roberts, “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” “Scream 4”). But when anti-Kappa DEAN CATHY MUNSCH (Jamie Lee Curtis, “Halloween,” “A Fish Called Wanda,” “True Lies”) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell is about to break loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc across the campus.

An over-the-top, biting satire, SCREAM QUEENS is part black comedy, part slasher flick and a modern take on the classic whodunit, in which every character has a motive for murder…or could easily be the next victim.

Scream Queens debuts with a two-hour premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.

“Good evening, idiot hookers!”

Sororities, and college, and murder! Oh, my!

Fox has just released the first full killer trailer for Ryan Murphy’s new comedy-horror series Scream Queens, starring Emma Roberts, Lea Michelle, Jamie Lee Curtis, Oliver Hudson, and Keke Palmer. The new anthology series revolves around a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders and is set in the Kappa House sorority.

According the to the official synopsis there will be “at least one casualty each week until the mystery is solved, anyone could be the next victim – or the murderer.” Basically, it’s a modern take of the classic whodunit, and we can’t wait to check-in with the girls over at the Kappa House when the 15-episode, hourlong comedy premieres this fall.

Did I mention that Nick Jonas has booked a recurring role on the upcoming series?!

So, welcome to hell week! Enjoy the nearly 3-minute long trailer and let us know what you think!

CBS announced their fall 2015-16 schedule early Wednesday morning and released a few trailers their upcoming new series, to get us all a little excited for what’s to come later on this year. Personally, I can’t wait for Supergirl and Limitless.

Check out the trailers below and let us know what you think!

LIFE IN PIECES – Mondays at 8:30 p.m.

An irreverent look at a family’s sometimes awkward, often hilarious and ultimately beautiful milestone moments, starring Academy and Emmy Award winner Dianne Wiest, Emmy Award winner James Brolin, Zoe Lister Jones, Colin Hanks, Angelique Cabral, Thomas Sadoski, Betsy Brandt and Dan Bakkedahl.

LIMITLESS – Tuesdays at 10 p.m.

LIMITLESS, based on the feature film, is a fast-paced drama about Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT, that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them.

CODE BLACK – Wednesdays at 10 p.m.

CODE BLACK, based on the award-winning documentary by Ryan McGarry, is a heart-pounding medical drama that takes place in the busiest, most notorious ER in the nation, where the staggering influx of patients can outweigh the limited resources available to the extraordinary doctors and nurses whose job is to treat them all – creating a condition known as Code Black. At the heart of the ER’s controlled chaos is Residency Director Dr. Leanne Rorish (Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden), renowned for successfully performing high-risk procedures in Center Stage, the trauma area reserved for the most critical cases. Her four new first-year residents are Christa Lorenson (Bonnie Somerville), Malaya Pineda (Melanie Kannokada), Mario Savetti (Benjamin Hollingsworth) and Angus Leighton (Harry M. Ford). Leanne’s confidante, Jesse Sallander (Luis Guzman), is an amiable seen-it-all senior nurse who manages the residents.

ANGEL FROM HELL – Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. (Starting in November)

ANGEL FROM HELL stars Golden Globe and multiple Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch in a single-camera comedy about Amy (Lynch), a colorful, brassy woman who insinuates herself into Allison’s (Maggie Lawson) organized and seemingly perfect life, claiming to be her “guardian angel.”
