!! OMG, actress and performer Candis Cayne to appear as a trans woman with breast cancer on NBC’s ‘HEARTBEAT’ !!


You may know Candis Cayne as a voice of reason on E!’s I Am Cait, or if you’re gay and lived in New York City, or frequented Barracuda anytime within the past 15 years — but the iconic trans performer getting back to acting next week on an all-new episode of NBC’s medical drama Heartbeat.

In the episode, titled “Permanent Glitter,” she plays Ava, a trans woman diagnosed with breast cancer. When Dr. Alex Panttiere (Melissa George) recommends an aggressive treatment to save her life, Ava learns that the body she spent a lifetime transitioning into will never be the same.

“The storyline explores the hardships that all cancer patients must face – fear of death and the unknown, and the sometimes crippling uncertainty of what the future holds,” NBC says in a press statement.

“And through the character of Ava, we learn that it’s not a breast, or a scar, or our appearance that defines us, but our inner strength and courage.”

Good for NBC for offering a different perspective in healthcare! Make sure to check out Candis Cayne on Heartbeat, May 4 at 8/7c on NBC.

!! OMG, Satanists come to cable TV: NBC Greenlights ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ Miniseries !!

(Yes, that face above is the exact same face I made when I first read that headline too.)
In more Hollywood-can’t-stop-to-have-a-meeting-for-5-minutes-and-figure-out-an-original-or-new-idea kinda news: NBC has greenlit ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ to be made into a miniseries for the network in 2014.
Obviously there is only one person in Hollywood who is suited to fill Mia‘s shoes as “Rosemary”, and that’s Rosemary’s baby, himself — RONAN FARROW (aka “YUNG SINATRA” as he’s known to the hip-hop community). He’s already got that wispy pixie cut, the lips, the blue eyes, the cheekbones — they just need to throw him in a Marc Jacobs moo-moo.

And since the fashions for this remake are where most of the budget will need to go — I really suggest they recreate Paris the same way the iconic Liz & Dick did with their hot rolldown backdrops! Industry standard.

!! OMG, another Universal Monster comes to TV: ‘Wolfman’ to howl for NBC? !!

It looks as if all the networks are hopping on the horror bandwagon these days. First DRACULA came to TV and now, another famous classic Universal Monster is making his way to television. According to Deadline:

The upcoming series will take its cue from the not-so-bad 2010 WOLFMAN redo starring Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins and Emily Blunt. Its synopsis however, is without any defining characteristics that would link it to such. Instead, it sounds like the general outline of both THE WOLFMAN 2010 and the original, classic THE WOLF MAN (1941); the site writes, “It centers on Lawrence Talbot, who is afflicted by an ancient curse…” Considering the alterations I hear DRACULA is having fun with and the general longer form storytelling and diversions that televisions allows, it seems hard to expect any direct correlation other than the Talbot name and traditional story. The most significant connection seems to be the carrying over of producer Scott Stuber.

There is not set yet for the series, though it’s tied to NBC. Are you excited to see The Wolfman take TV?
