NBC has announced its renewal of Jennifer Lopez’s complicated, corrupt cop show Shades of Blue.
The story of single mom and cop Harlee Santos (Lopez) who is forced to cooperate with an obnoxious (and obsessed) FBI agent named Stahl (Warren Kole) in an undercover operation to bring down her precinct, has delivered NBC’s first Thursday 10-11 p.m. ET time period wins with in-season regular programming over original competition on ABC and CBS since March 2010.
Freeform’s new series Dead of Summer has added three more members to its cast: Zelda Williams (Teen Wolf), Alberto Frezza (Charlie’s Angels) and Eli Goree (The 100).
Set in ’80s, Dead of Summer, the series follows the camp counselors at Camp Clearwater, ‘a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp’ – emphasis on ‘seeming.’
Williams will play ‘a counselor who is a mysterious loner with no interest in bonding with the rest of the group;’ Frezza will play ‘Deputy Garrett Sykes, a young deputy who has ties to Camp Clearwater,’ and Goree will play Joel, ‘an aspiring filmmaker who is returning to Camp Clearwater as a counselor.’

Sounds like a pretty good time to me. The 58th Annual Grammy Awards – hosted by LL Cool J – will be broadcast live by CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Monday, February 15th (8/7C). More details follow after the break.
