Jennifer Garner is producing a new television show for Fox, the very same network that recently signed Ben Affleck to direct a pilot about the Boston crime scene in the 1960s. Garner’s pilot, The Whole Shebang is about “a newly single soccer mom who inherits a run-down male strip club and unexpectedly finds herself at the center of a dysfunctional, makeshift family that helps her take charge of her life.” The pilot will be written by the Butter screenwriter, Jason Micallef. Garner is not expected to appear in the series. (THR)

Meanwhile, the pilot for the new Showtimes series, Masters of Sex — with Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan — is up on YouTube now. Apparently, there’s a lot of sex in the pilot, and with YouTube, you can skip straight to it. If you plan on watching the series at all, I’d recommend catching the pilot early, since it debuts the same night as Homeland’s third season premiere, and the series finale of Breaking Bad, plus Eastbound & Down and The Good Wife. It’s going to be a busy night.

Speaking of The Good Wife, Nathan Lane — who was nominated for a Best Guest Star Emmy on the show last season — will reprise his Clarke Hayden this season. Carrie Preston, Stockard Channing, John Noble, America Ferrera and Gary Cole will also return this year.

Ahead of next week’s premiere of Parks and Recreation, NBC has put together a video showing the full range of Ron Swanson’s emotions. It is fantastic.

Elsewhere, Kelsey Grammer has been added to the cast of Expendables 3 because, why not? Daniel Carlson had the very best response to the news over on Twitter. THE EXPENDABLES 3: TOSSED SALAD AND SCRAMBLED DEATH.

Levar Burton is returning to Community this season.

Dante’s Inferno will be adapted to the big screen by the director of the Evil Dead remake, Fede Alvarez. The epic poem? Oh God, no. This is Hollywood, people. It’s an adaptation of Dante’s Inferno, the video game!

Finally, Ron Howard has acknowledged that The Dark Tower adaptation is still in the works, but he’s not going to give anymore updates until it’s off the ground, as he explains to Empire.

“So my answer is: it got delayed, it’s never gone away,” Howard said. “We’re working on it, and Stephen is very patient with us, and Akiva’s just gone off and directed a movie, I’m continuing to work, but the Dark Tower dreams - fever dreams, rather - are still there, but we’re not going to give it a timetable.”

    Is that her post-coitus lipstick?

    The best thing about that header picture is the dude's expression. That the thing he's holding looks less like a sex toy and more like some sort of fuel rod for an alien spaceship just makes it better.

    "Dante’s Inferno will be adapted to the big screen by the director of the Evil Dead remake, Fede Alvarez. The epic poem? Oh God, no. This is Hollywood, people. It’s an adaptation of Dante’s Inferno, the video game!"

    Wasn't the game a financial failure as well as basically shit?

  • Jill

    Maybe it's just me, but I watched the Masters of Sex pilot and thought, especially with as much sex as it had, that it was pretty boring. I really like Caplan and Sheen and I understand it was partly because of the characters they were playing, but it just seemed to strip their personalities down a lot. In fact, the show's most interesting character was the hooker.

  • Hollyg

    The hooker definitely won the episode. Her "oh, your poor, poor wife" face when Martin Sheen asked her why would a woman fake an orgasm was priceless.

  • bastich

    Leaving Kelsey Grammer out of the "Expendables" series would have been a grave oversight, as he is truly one of America's finest 80's action movie stars.

    It would take hours for me to decide which was his finest film, but I'll go with my gut and just say that his work in "Headshrink Commando 3: Freudian Force" was the tops.

  • meadowdancer

    Seriously how the hell is in this movie? LOL.

  • Ah, Nick Offerman's frown... What Leo DiCaprio's hyper-intense-look wishes it could be

  • Fredo

    “a newly single soccer mom who inherits a run-down male strip club and
    unexpectedly finds herself at the center of a dysfunctional, makeshift
    family that helps her take charge of her life.”

    And tits!

  • JenVegas

    Ron, The Dark Tower will haunt your dreams forever.

  • This Dark Tower news is the best thing ever, thank you Dustin!
