Caffeine – January 8th Edition

Happy Sunday! The winter TCA press tour started this week, so we’ll have all sorts of news to catch up on in the next few weeks. Get ready!

My favorite news of the week: The final season of In Plain Sight (plus the second season of Fairly Legal) will premiere on Friday, March 16. My feelings for Marshal Marshall are fairly ridiculously intense, if you were wondering.

Renewed: Flashpoint.

Netflix is premiering the whole first season of Lilyhammer on February 6.

If you want to watch the Smash pilot early, you’re in luck: It’ll be basically everywhere.

For what it’s worth, NBC is insisting that Community will be back this spring, but we don’t have a date yet.

The CW ordered a soapy crime drama about fandom. Yes, PLEASE.

The networks are looking at some Canadian shows for summer: Saving Hope for NBC and The L.A. Complex for the CW.

Amy Poehler will direct a May sweeps episode of Parks and Recreation. And Nick Offerman is writing a script.

ABC ordered Shawn Ryan’s Last Resort to pilot, and it sounds pretty interesting. They also ordered this thing and to be honest I have read that story three times and still can’t make any sense of the premise.

TBS picked up Men at Work to series.

People who are NOT leaving their shows: Alec Baldwin, Mariska Hargitay.

Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice are doing more crossovers.
