... Dark Blue has been canceled by TNT. It starred Dylan McDermott and... uhhh, that's all I really know about it. But check out TV.com's handy dandy Dark Blue showspace for all the info you need! [The Live Feed]

... Claire Danes is eyeballing the lead in the upcoming Showtime drama Homeland. Danes would play a CIA agent who gets a tip that a POW who was given a hero's welcome may actually be an undercover agent for bad guys from a country that's far away. USA! USA! USA! Danes hasn't been a TV regular since My So-Called Life, everyone's favorite voiceover'd, teen angsty, internal monologue show from the '90s. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Dylan Walsh, last seen on FX's Nip/Tuck, is on board for a potential drama project at CBS. Details about the untitled FBI show are sketchy, but we do know that it will be set in Washington D.C. and will probably be just like every other procedural out there. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Weeds creator Jenji Kohan says that the series' seventh season will likely be its last. "Seven years is a good run. I'd rather leave while on top." Well then shouldn't you have left halfway through Season 3? Oooh burn! [TV Guide]

... Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) is working with Fox on Magical Law, a supernatural cop show with a twist. The series is set in a world where supernatural creatures co-exist with humans, and follows a division of law enforcement that must deal with crimes committed by the weirdos. Didn't someone else have an idea exactly like this in development, or is this the same project? [Deadline Hollywood]

... Bill Nye the Science Guy collapsed last night while giving a speech at the University of Southern California last night. Nye regained consciousness and continued with his speech before officials helped him off stage. Nye told the audience he had a similar episode that morning. Get better, Bill, we need more people like you in the world. [LA Times]

... Rumor! Rumor! Rumor! Warner Bros. is looking to continue the hot Batman franchise on television once the third movie, The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters. But who would play the husky-voiced superhero? Producers are allegedly considering a "Karl Urban" type, whatever that means. Again... this is a rumor. Believe at your own risk. [Comic Book Movie]
