ABC Orders Another Pilot

Following the SHIELD pilot order, ABC orders a put pilot called "The Housewives", written by June Diane Raphael and Casey Wilson, as reported by Deadline.  Will Gluck is producing the pilot.  The show would be a multi-camera comedy about three female friends that takes place in 1954.  1954, people!  This could be all sorts of fun!  Raphael just may be one of the three leads.  It's too bad Wilson can't do both Happy Endings and The Housewives, but we'll have her there in the words.  Hopefully this one will stick, unlike last year's pilot by the same team Walk of Shame.  I do hope that Raphael ends up playing a role, and I do hope that role is a drunken blunt woman.  This writing duo is also responsible for Bride Wars.  Check out Raphael weekly on Adult Swim's NTSF:SD:SUV and Wilson weekly on Happy Endings, ABC, at 9 PM, opposite New Girl, FOX, and Go On, NBC.

SHIELD TV Series from Joss Whedon

I've been so busy that I haven't posted about this gloriously wonderful news.  Joss Whedon was confirmed to be working on a new TV series that focuses on SHIELD, the organization that forms the Avengers.  In addition, the series will be in continuity with the films and may even have guest appearances by the film characters.  Whedon will likely co-write the pilot with his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen and possibly direct the pilot.  What's up in the air, though, is the characters Whedon will be using.

Glorious Guest of Season 4, Episode 4 of Community

Community's fourth season shows no signs of veering from its slightly insane, chaotic crass, and darkly witty, certainly mind-blowingly hilarious origins with Happy Endings showrunners coming to play.  Even the stars like Joel McHale will tell you so.  But I'm particularly excited for episode 4, pertaining to a convention in which Abed meets new people of similar fandom of Inspector Spacetime.  Read after the jump to see what two guest stars will be appearing.
