Have you been wondering what former The Young and the Restless star Davetta Sherwood has been up to since exiting the role of Lily Winters? Well have I got news for you! The talented, young actress stars as fashionista Cecile in Fuse's upcoming, premiere scripted drama The Hustle.
From creator Prentice Penny (Happy Endings, Scrubs, Girlfriends), The Hustle is a dramedy in the vein of HBO's Entourage, only instead of the film industry being the backdrop, The Hustle is set in the world of hip-hop. Fuse just picked up the series for six, half-hour episodes. Watch a couple of videos about the series, including one with Sherwood talking about her character, after the jump! READ MORE
Soap operas are coming to OWN after all! As part of The Mighty O's programming pact with Tyler Perry, the one-man entertainment brand has created a sudsy, new drama entitled The Haves and The Have Nots for Ms. Winfrey's previously touchy-feely channel.
Based on one of Perry's stage plays, The Haves and The Have Nots is the upstairs/downstairs saga of a ruthlessly-wealthy WASP family and an African-American clan headed up by their God-fearing housekeeper.
The soap stars Dukes of Hazzard alum John Schneider as Judge Jim Cryer, patriarch of the powerful Cryer dynasty. Judge Cryer has been secretly paying for the services of high-priced escort Candace Young (One Life to Live's Tika Sumpter), who just so happens to be the long-lost daughter of his family's church-going housekeeper Hanna (In The Heat of The Night's Crystal Fox)!
Passions alum Eva Tamargo appears as Celine, chef to the Cryer family. Peter Parros (As The World Turns) stars as David Harrington, a wealthy friend of the Cryers. Gavin Houston (Guiding Light) portrays Jeffrey Harrington, substance abuse counselor for the Cryer's troubled son Wyatt (Aaron O'Connell). Watch the steamy trailer below!
One of television's sexiest baddies could be getting his own spinoff. In the April 26 episode of The Vampire Diaries, the action moves from Mystic Falls to New Orleans, as the supernatural sudser offers up a backdoor pilot for The Originals.
Look for Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and his assorted, sociopathic, vampire siblings to face off with Marcel (Grey's Anatomy's Charles Michael Davis), as a witch uprising threatens the Originals. Okay, that's enough verbiage about it; watch the steamy promo after the jump!
Jesus in a manger! I always knew if Tyler Perry had the opportunity to get his hands on The Color Purple, he would somehow have that gun-toting Granny Madea in there. Well, the multi-hyphenated phenom got his recently chance, in a manner of speaking.
To promote Perry’s shows, Love Thy Neighbor and The Haves and Have Nots coming to OWN, Oprah Winfrey slipped back into her famous Sofia role from The Color Purple, and Perry transformed himself back into his breakout character. Winfrey revealed the picture on Twitter and stated:
We had a real LOL good time with this. #SophiaMeetsMadea tomorrow.
