Rachael Leigh Cook will play the female lead in a new sitcom called 'Nirvana.'
The series revolves around two Indian-American brothers trying to assimilate into the American culture, and Cook plays one of the boys' girlfriends. It's one of two Indian infused shows coming to a television set near you, along with the NBC office sitcom 'Outsourced.'
Check out this trailer for what appears to not only be a revival of the 'Slumdog Millionaire' franchise, but also a classic children's TV favorite for the big screen. I double dare you to watch it or take the physical challenge.
The critical and financial success of the plucky little independent Bollywood-esque drama that brought 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?' back into your consciousness just as it was leaving has inspired several upcoming TV comedies with heavy Indian-themes.
Fox has greenlit 'Nirvana,' an Indian-American family sitcom and NBC has picked up 'Outsourced,' another office comedy about an American manager who is sent to India to manage a customer service department. Would you be interested in watching these shows, even if you had never heard of 'Slumdog Millionaire'?
Since its debut in 1975, 'Saturday Night Live' has been synonymous with bringing pop music to the late-night, weekend masses. Now in its 35th season on NBC, 'SNL' has indeed become the holy grail for musicians.
Over the years, many memorable performances have graced the 'SNL' stage. In this list, we select the 7 best. Some were energetic, some were raw and emotive, some were quirky and fun.
But mostly, they were all daring for broadcast television at the time.
Leading up to the Fuse's broadcast, the network will whet Nirvana fans' appetites by running two lead-in shows about the band: 'Loaded: Nirvana' at 10pm and 'Videos that Rocked the World: Smells Like Teen Spirit' at 10:30PM, with the latter giving an in-depth look at the video that accompanied the group's breakout hit.
CSI: Miami's Horatio Cane is getting a son, those kids on How I Met Your Mother are getting a Mom and Jericho fans are getting seven more episodes -- for now.
CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler offered up some news and story tidbits and fielded inquiries from the press about the off-screen lives of Eye network stars as Wednesday morning's press session got underway.
First up: the story tidbits and other show-related news. "Viewers will get hints about the identity of the mother in How I Met Your Mother," Tassler revealed. (Me, I've always guessed it's Alyson Hannigan -- but I'm not sure I want to see Hannigan's Lily and Jason Segel's Marshall not live happily ever after.)
Plus, she'll make Paula look good.
*Update: US magazine says an 'imposter' phoned Courtney, which makes a lot more sense than her appearing on American Idol.
