Homeland returns for season 2 in September, and the main theme looks to be discomfort -- former POW Nick Brody, played by Damien Lewis, will balance the seemingly mutually exclusive interests of a Senate seat and links with Muslim extremists.
"He'd like to think he's in control of his own destiny, but he won't be," Lewis said of his character. "Essentially, he's everybody's btch. He's pretty f*ked."
Sidenote: Catch Claire Danes' eye twitch at the end? She's good.
Mindy Kaling's ditching the downward-spiraling Office for her own show, The Mindy Project, and based on the trailer, we can expect a much smarter, if not much savvier, version of Kelly Kapoor.
Kaling plays a professionally accomplished OB-GYN whose personal life is a hot mess; as her lovelorn character admits in the preview, she's looking for a man with "the wealth of Mayor Bloomberg, the personality of Jon Stewart, the face of Michael Fassbender... the penis of Michael Fassbender."
J.J. Abrams -- of Alias, Lost, and Fringe fame -- is at the helm of Revolution, a new drama set in a post-apocalyptic world 15 years "after the lights went out" -- or when a mysterious electromagnetic pulse threw humanity back into the 19th century, without cars, phones, or (gasp!) the Internet. Premieres this fall on NBC.
Trailer #1 for Aaron Sorkin's new HBO drama Newsroom was delicious. Now that Trailer #2 has been released, June 24 can't get here soon enough. With a cantankerous Jeff Daniels in mid-career meltdown and Sam Waterston in a wrangling role eerily similar to his long-running stint on Law & Order, this has all the makings of small-screen resurrection for Sorkin.
