The Wire Reunion, PaleyFest
In an age where television is dominated by reboots, re-imaginings and "event series" sequels, there is at least one acclaimed show you shouldn't expect to see back on your TV screen: HBO's The Wire.
Despite being considered by critics and legions of adoring fans (many of whom never watched the show during its actual low-rated run) to be the greatest TV drama of all time, co-creator and executive producer David Simon made it abundantly during a reunion panel at New York PaleyFest Thursday night that he has no interest in...
Law & Order:SVU
Law & Order: SVU is planning an upcoming episode that will combine elements of the Trayvon Martin shooting as well as allegations of racism against Paula Deen, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Body of Proof creator and executive producer Matthew Gross has made it no secret that his ABC drama has undergone quite a makeover during its 10-month hiatus. But should existing fans be worried that they'll be watching a completely new series when Season 3 premieres (Tuesday at 10/9c, ABC)?
Yes and no.
Body of Proof has already been off the air for nine months, but now fans will have to wait two more weeks for the show's return.

Body of Proof
When Body of Proof returns for its third season on Feb. 5, it sounds like medical examiner Megan Hunt may be trading in her lab coat for something much more — ahem — revealing.
"It's a little silly in the high heels, I have to admit. I feel like I should be wearing a catsuit or something," star Dana Delany said with a laugh of the new season's increased action sequences at ABC's winter TV preview Thursday. "I've even had a gun in my hand a couple of times, which medical examiners don't normally do. There's a lot more action and it's a fun show to watch."
Hunt will indeed be getting more action this season as part of a larger plan to try to reenergize the ABC procedural after ratings spiked for the final three episodes of Season 2, which revolved around a serial killer. "We've decided to continue that momentum to make stories that are more...
Some new faces are heading to ABC's Body of Proof.

I only have one question about the NCIS finale: Is Cote de Pablo returning to the show next season? — B.C.
MATT: Why, did it look like Ziva was on death's doorstep in that secretly filmed torture scene? If so, think back to what NCIS boss Shane Brennan said about that grim cliff-hanger: Come September, "all will be revealed and you will be surprised. It will come at you from left field." (But, in a word: Yes. Sources whisper to me that Cote will be back.) Bonus buzzlet: Season 6 arrives on DVD Aug. 25!
Please tell us the rumors aren't true, and that Desperate Housewives isn't going with a melodramatic miscarriage storyline for Lynette. — Steph

Dominic West, The Wire
During its first four seasons, HBO's The Wire (Sundays, 9 pm/ET, HBO) has tackled some major issues: inner-city crime, labor conflicts, political corruption, the failing public-school system. And as it launches its final 10-week run, the sprawling drama clearly still has a lot of big questions on its mind.
In a jaw-dropping twist at the end of this season's second episode, Baltimore detective Jimmy McNulty (Dominic West) resorts to desperate measures in an attempt to restart a hard-fought case against drug kingpin Marlo Stanfield (Jamie Hector). Suffice it to say, his tactics would give Gil Grissom conniption fits. "It's not about how the unit tracks Marlo down," West says. "It's about how McNulty goes after him despite the authorities."
Those authorities include the ci
