The star of TV's Buffy The Vampire Slayer wants her character to be "far away from any Hellmouth" in 2017...

Neal Baer Developing FBI Procedural at Fox (Exclusive)

Fox is developing a FBI procedural drama with Neal Baer and writer Cathryn Humphris, Variety has learned exclusively.

The untitled, hourlong series is described as a character-driven procedural that follows a newly-assembled FBI task force — a distinguished cop, a hard-driving lawyer, a psychologist and a social media expert — as they travel the country investigating and solving hate crimes. The team’s goal is to bring justice to those who have been wronged and foster healing in the communities that have been fractured by the hate crimes, even as cases bring up old wounds and personal demons for the agents.

The subject matter and format is familiar territory for Baer, who served as showrunner on “Law & Order: Svu” for 11 seasons. The TV vet was also writer and showrunner on “ER.”

For Humphris, the project marks her first solo-written series. She got her start on “Supernatural,” and her other writing credits include “Mad Men,” “Elementary

19 Times Twins Got Too Twisted for TV

  • TVfanatic
Twisted twins and doppelgangers. Some engage in incest, others just have horrible, even life-threatening relationships.

For some reason, the shows with twins played by the same actor or actress, in this case Alexandra Chando of The Lying Game, or Sarah Michelle Gellar of Ringer, don't seem to last very long.

But these relationships are always so juicy and dark because even compared to siblings, there's just a certain bond between twins that is undeniable and leads to much deeper rifts in their family fabric.

Seems like daytime soaps have an uncanny habit of revealing a shocking doppelganger.

Below, here are some of our favorite dark, deep, twisty, and puzzling twin relationships.

'Supergirl' Is Moving to The CW for Season 2

  • Moviefone
"Supergirl" has been renewed for a second season, but it won't air on CBS: The superhero drama will fly on over to sister network The CW for its sophomore outing.

News broke late Thursday afternoon about the move, which will unite "Supergirl" with her other super-themed friends on existing CW shows "The Flash," "Arrow," and "Legends of Tomorrow." Earlier this year, a "Flash"-"Supergirl" crossover was a critical and ratings hit, prompting speculation that "Supergirl" could make the permanent move to The CW should CBS balk at renewing the so-so-rated show. The series, starring Melissa Benoist as the titular heroine, has averaged 10.03 million overall viewers in live-plus-7 numbers in season one.

When it was first in development, "Supergirl" seemed like a no-brainer to land at The CW, since it already fit that network's existing programming. But CBS wanted to court the superhero audience for itself, and scooped up the property.

‘Supergirl’ Lands at the CW for Season 2

‘Supergirl’ Lands at the CW for Season 2
After nearly two years of rumors, “Supergirl” is heading to The CW for its second season, Variety has learned.

The network shuffle cements “Supergirl’s” Season 2 renewal.

The superhero show, starring Melissa Benoist, was at CBS for its first season, which was quite the departure for the older-skewing network. At the time, CBS’s former chief Nina Tassler was looking for a female heroine and greenlit the Greg Berlanti-produced project for the 2015-16 slate. Before “Supergirl” was initially ordered to series, rumors were flying that the show would land at sister net CW, though it was in development at CBS.

At CBS, “Supergirl” averaged a 2.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 10.03 million viewers overall in Nielsen’s “live plus-7” estimates. It was CBS’ top-rated rookie drama this season in the demo, and was also its youngest-skewing drama with a median age of 55.6 — however, it was down from the network’s
