A first-look trailer for the second season of The Shannara Chronicles, based on the fantasy series by Terry Brooks, has been released. It will premiere October 11 on Spike, "its new home following the move from sister Viacom network MTV," Deadline reported. The cast includes Austin Butler, Ivana Baquero and Malese Jow.
Joy Nash (The Mindy Project, Twin Peaks) has been cast in the lead role of Plum Kettle for Dietland, AMC's 10-episode straight-to-series darkly comedic drama based on Sarai Walker's 2015 novel, Deadline reported. The project is from Marti Noxon (UnReal), Skydance TV and AMC Studios.
"Joy is everything I hoped we'd find in our leading woman--beautiful, smart and blazing with talent," said Noxon. "When she auditioned the whole room was electrified. I can't wait for the world to meet her 'Plum.' "
