Louis will have dibs to write and/or direct each project as well. Basically, FX is giving him the keys to the house. What shows will he make? Sons of Apathy? It's Always Depressing in New York? American Horrifying Masturbating Story? [Variety]

... News to me: Netflix is making an original program based on the kids' movie Turbo, about a racing snail.

[Netflix via press release]

... There's a major death coming to Nashville!!! And let's just hope it's Teddy, Lamar, or Teddy's wife Whatsherface because they all suck. Yes, I love Nashville. [E! Online]

... Syndicated celebrity news show Dish Nation has been renewed for a second season. Congratulations, whatever you are! [The Wrap]

... BBC One will put out a mini-episode and possible Season 3 prequel of Sherlock on Christmas Day. But there are so few details on the project, including whether Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch will even be in it, that I don't know what else to type here. [Zap2It]


CASTING NEWS

... Bret Michaels—frontman for Poison, most valuable consumer within the bandana industry, and star of the sex-education drama Rock of Love—will guest-star on NBC's Revolution in what might be the greatest news of the year. He'll play... get this... "a post-apocalyptic version of himself," and even strum out an acoustic version of "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." Revolution has a past with musicians; last season, the series helped debut some new Led Zeppelin songs. [NBC via press release]

... The Good Wife will soon welcome British actor Matthew Goode (The Watchmen) in a major recurring role. He'll play a prosecutor who buddies up to Alicia. [TV Line]

... ABC's Dancing With the Stars, which has about the same trajectory of relevance as a video-rental store, is cooking up an all-Oscar-winner edition, according to some rumors. The centerpiece would be Renee Zellweger, in case that tells you how exciting such season might be. [Radar Online]

... Kevin Rankin continues to be awesome. The Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad, and Justified star (the Holy Trinity of recent television) will join Fox's remake of Broadchurch that's now called Gracepoint. Rankin will play the minister in the town where the series' key murder takes place. Also joining the series is The Following's Virginia Kull. [Deadline Hollywood]

... TBS's Men At Work will feature guest appearances from Ryan Phillippe, David Krumholz, and Emmanuelle Chriqui. In the comedy about a bunch of dudes who work at a men's magazine, Phillippe will play himself, Krumholz will recur as a boss, and I'm guessing Chriqui will play some sort of hot chick. [TV Guide]

... Constance Zimmer (House of Cards) will appear in an arc on NBC's Growing Up Fisher, the midseason comedy about a son and his blind dad. Zimmer will also guest-star in Matt Nix's new USA pilot Complications. [THR]
