24 showrunner Howard Gordon and Final Destination writer-director James Wong have aligned themselves with our eventual robot overlords. When reached for comment, they responded, “What’s the threat? We all sell out every day, might as well be on the winning team.” Then Roddy Piper poked them in the eyes before placing them in a figure four leglock.

The duo are moving forward with a film adaptation of 2084, the upcoming book series by Homeland co-creator Gregg Rosenblum. Set in the distant future, it tells of a society where robots developed to serve man rise up and now control our every movement. Which doesn’t sound like a world I’d want to live in. That’s why I eat poorly. (THR)

Yesterday, NBC picked up a bunch of girlie shows for girlie girls. Today it’s all about odd dramas, or “oddmas” as I call them. I’m sure that term’s gonna catch on.

The Playboy Club” will put on rabbit ears and pretend-flirt with you. Chad Hodge’s series stars Eddie Cibrian and Amber Heard, and will explore the sexy world of 1960s Playboy bunnies. Va-va-voom or va-va-blatant”Mad Men“-rip-off? We’ll soon find out.

Is the Big Bag Wolf bad enough to mess with the police? “Grimm” is a cop drama that takes place in a world where fairy tale characters are real. This sounds an awful lot like the graphic novel series Fables, so if you like that premise, definitely read Fables, so you can complain about how much better Fables is.

Finally, I’ve been lying awake at night for years wondering when somebody would make a police procedural with a “Sliders” twist. Now it’s happening and I can finally sleep. “Awake” stars Jason Isaacs as a detective who has an accident, causing his life to split into two realities: one where his wife dies and his son lives, and the other where his wife lives but his son dies. He should just hop to the universe where the sky rains donuts. “Awake” is showrunner Wonder Woman” series was not picked up. David E. Kelley‘s invisible jet has been shot down. Hopefully, this will leave Adrianne Palicki free to wear sexier, less-outrage provoking outfits in the future. (EW)
