Variety reported that ABC has given a straight-to-series order for Ten Days in the Valley, the drama series that was shopped around with Demi Moore attached — but now will star Kyra Sedgwick. The drama is Sedgwick’s first series regular role following TNT’s The Closer, which wrapped in 2012 after seven seasons. ABC has ordered 10 episodes of the hour-long drama. No premiere date has been set, but the project will start production in 2017.

Not long after Jon Stewart‘s departure from The Daily Show, news surfaced that the beloved comedian would return to television via a four-year production deal with HBO.  At the time details were limited, but at the TCA press tour this past week, HBO programming president Casey Bloys revealed that Stewart’s project is multi-platformed, stating that “The idea is it will be an animated parody of a cable news network with an Onion-like portal.”  According to Bloys, Stewart is establishing an animation studio which will allow him “to comment in real time with what’s happening during the day’s news events.” The show will be structured not only to release short-form content via the premium cable channel’s digital platforms, but also will include a television component; likely a half-hour series. Bloys added that the show is expected to air in the fall… just in time for election season.


DAREDEVIL ACT ON AMERICA’S GOT TALENT GOES DANGEROUSLY WRONG

Ever watch magic or daredevil acts on the edge of your seat, hoping nothing goes amiss? That nightmare came true on Tuesday during stuntman and show contestant Ryan Stock’s quarterfinals act on America’s Got Talent when he was accidentally struck in the throat by a flaming arrow shot by his fiancee and partner, AmberLynn Walker. As part of the act, Stock had swallowed an object with a target at one end protruding from his mouth. But Walker missed that target in front of a stunned audience and judges, causing a good deal of pain for Stock who, shocked, removed the target and assured host Nick Cannon that he was OK. After being checked out and released by EMTs backstage, Stock went to Twitter to call it “a very unfortunate mechanical failure but I am very fortunate to walk away from it.”
