Superheroes have been wearing capes since their creation. But NBC's The Cape is the first TV series to turn that part of the masked crusader's costume into his main source of power.
"To me, capes are superheroes," executive producer Tom Wheeler said Thursday at the Television Critics Association's winter previews. "There's something about the cape that speaks to childhood. When you...

Off the Map may seem familiar, what with its genetically blessed coterie of dark and twisty doctors, but the new ABC series replaces Seattle Grace with, well, a South American jungle. Wednesday's premiere introduced us to the newly arrived staff of La Clinica Cruz del Sur. Let's make snap judgments about them!

Comedy isn't dead, females are funny and Sue Sylvester is a man.
At least, that's what we learned after two panels Wednesday during the winter TV previews. The casts of Modern Family, Glee, How I Met Your Mother and Raising Hope gathered to discuss what makes each of their shows so, well, funny.
10. How I Met Your Mother Shoots Without an Audience: The actors have to hold for a laugh that isn't there. "You get to guess how funny your joke is," Jason Segel says. "I'm going to give this one four seconds!" Adds co-star Neil Patrick Harris: "In Season 7, I'm going to start opening the door and waiting for entrance applause."
9. Julie Bowen Seeks Therapy for Laughs: Without even a laugh track on Modern Family, Julie Bowen is desperate to get her fix. "I'm wildly...
When Chris Colfer learned Glee would air right after the Super Bowl, his first reaction was: "What's a Super Bowl?"
But seriously, he was floored. Producers made sure that the episode would be a big one, befitting its lead-in, and the budget quickly surpassed that of the Madonna tribute, up until now the show's most expensive production.
"I'm so surprised there were no fatalities out of that episode because it is insane," Colfer said Wednesday during the Television Critics Association winter previews. "It's by far the most expensive episode we've ever done. There was one scene where they were filming and they...

It's 2149 and Earth has been destroyed by overpopulation. Scientists discover a crack in the space-time continuum, which leads to a pre-historic era. Presented with a new, lush landscape, a military-lead colony heads to the past in hopes of giving humanity a fresh start.
Also, there are dinosaurs!
That's the premise of Terra Nova, an ambitious new series from executive producer Steven Spielberg. Filmed in Australia, the series' intricate storyline and verdant setting may scream Lost, but producers insist that's the furthest thing from their mind.
"This has nothing to do with Lost for one major reason:

Off the Map may seem like Grey's Anatomy in the jungle, especially with executive producer Shonda Rhimes attached. But series creator Jenna Bans tells TVGuide.com that the show will set itself apart.
How? Jungle medicine.
Map centers on three doctors, portrayed by Caroline Dhavernas, Zach Gilford and Mamie Gummer, who venture to South America to work at a clinic with less than hospitable surroundings and a natural lack of resources. "Here, it's 1952: You don't have high-tech, you don't have big pharma, you have your brain, you have your instincts," Dr. Ben (Martin Henderson) explains to the new doctors after he punches a guy in the face to act as anesthesia in the pilot's opening moments.
