Per Zap2ItSuits creator Aaron Korsh may have hinted at a new show in the works during a recent Twitter Q&A. Can fans expect another TV show soon?  While there are no details available about this possible new program, Korsh did let it slip that something was in the works late on Friday (June 6). 

"'@LungaKhunou: Are you working on anything else besides #Suits?' Slowly putting something in the pipeline. Oh s***, that's newly announced. " 

"Since Korsh revealed no specific details and did not delete the tweet, this could very well be the time for speculation. It's unlikely that Korsh would create another legal drama -- he has no legal background and actually adapted "Suits" from a show originally planned for the world of finance. But what else could come?  The answer may have to wait.  Suits Season 4 premieres Wednesday, June 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on USA."  Hallelujah. 

If you want to buy Sideboob's record (Orange Is The New Black), you can.

In anticipation of tonight's season premiere of everyone's favorite summer drama, Royal PainsTV Guide is reporting that "[t]he HankMed team is going to be pretty busy this summer on Royal Pains.

"The USA medical dramedy has added Oscar nominee Michael O'Keefe (Michael Clayton), Shameless vet Nick Gehlfuss, Greek grad Spencer Grammer,  Reaper'sTyler Labine, Betas actor Leonardo Nam and Entourage alum Brandon Quinn as guest stars for Season 6, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

"First off, Gehlfuss will appear in Tuesday's Season 6 premiere (9/8c, USA) as Lance, a gifted local musician with a possible family disease that could keep his career from taking off. Grammer will play an aspiring NASCAR driver who is distracted from an important race by the health issues of her father and NASCAR crew chief (O'Keefe).

"Quinn will (at least try to) romance Divya (Reshma Shetty) as Randy, a cheeky local firefighter who is as persistent as he is smitten in the July 1 episode. Labine will heat things up as Franklin, a talented chef opening a new restaurant in the July 15 episode.

"Nam will portray a young-at-heart house sitter known for his legendary Hamptons house parties until a freak accident turns his hard-partying lifestyle upside down in the July 22 episode.

"O'Keefe most recently starred on TNT's King & Maxwell. Gehlfuss also recurred on The Newsroom. Grammer most recently appeared on the short-lived Ironside remake. Labine currently stars on Hulu's  Deadbeat. The group joins recently announced guest starsDonna MurphyDiane Farr and Alpha House alum Willa Fitzgerald."

TheWrap is reporting that "Comedy Central has renewed Inside Amy Schumer for a third season, the network said Monday. The Andy Daly comedy Review and animated series TripTank have also been renewed for second seasons.

"The network has also given the green light  to a pair of new series, Another Period and Idiotsitter. Starring Natasha Leggero  (Brickleberry) and Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel and Oates), the series, set at the turn of the century, focuses on the Bellacourts, the first family of Newport, R.I., who have have absolutely nothing to offer to the world, but who have so much money that it doesn't matter. Leggero and Lindhome, who are also writing and executive producing the series, play a pair of sisters who care only about how they look, what parties they attend and becoming famous, which is a lot harder in 1902.

Idiotsitter, meanwhile, was created by and stars Jillian Bell (Comedy Central's Workaholics) and Charlotte Newhouse (Brainstorm). In the series, Newhouse plays a straight-and-narrow young woman who's hired to babysit a megarich womanchild (played by Bell) who is under house arrest in her daddy's mansion."

Season 4 of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee premieres June 19 and will feature episodes with Aziz AnsariRobert KleinSarah Jessica ParkerJon Stewart, and George Wallace.  Your first look is below:

Speaking of Seinfeld, Jerry sat down with David Letterman last night at the Paley Center and they talked about a variety of topics, some of the highlights of which are below:

"Seinfeld told Letterman . . . that he had the idea for the unscripted comedy show designed for the Internet before he knew it would actually work. Seinfeld claimed he disregarded digital experts who told him nobody would watch a web series with clips longer than five minutes. Moreover, the freedom from format constraints and TV network execs were key to its genesis.

"Seinfeld confessed that he can only make Comedians in Cars work with people he can relate to, a 'weird, subset Pekinese breed of human' — i.e., other comedians: 'Anybody who is a little normal, even a normal actor or actress, I’m lost.'

"Asked about guests he’d like to get on Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, Seinfeld acknowledged that he’s invited Woody Allen on the show, but hasn’t heard back. 'I don’t like to bother people,' he said, explaining that he hasn’t followed up with Allen.

"Seinfeld revealed to Letterman that Comedians in Cars costs in the neighborhood of $100,000 per episode to produce. Letterman wanted to know — was that compared with, say, $1 million per episode for Seinfeld? Responded an incredulous Seinfeld: 'In the end, you couldn’t get Jerry Stiller for a million.'”

Ex-Scandal star Columbus Short continues his idiotic ways.

Bravo has dug through the garbage and struck dirt again.  Per The Hollywood Reporter, "Bravo is heading to the South with Jersey Belle.

"The new docuseries centers on entertainment publicist Jaime Primak Sullivan, a New Jersey native who lives in the upscale suburb of Mountain Brook, Ala. Jersey Belle kicks off Monday, Aug. 4, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the NBCUniversal-owned network,The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

"Jersey Belle chronicles Sullivan's life in Alabama following her 2006 marriage to Michael Sullivan, Mountain Brook's 'most eligible bachelor, as she attempts to fit into a world not used to an unapologetic and outspoken woman.'

"She is the founder and president of Bridge and Tunnel Entertainment, a PR and strategic marketing agency founded in 2005 and has worked on Jamie Foxx's Grammy Party, Diddy's White Party and the Tony Hawk Foundation fundraiser."

So that's how Bravo has billed her.  Here is a link to Bridge and Tunnel's "past and current" clients (very deceptive since it gives zero indication as to who, if anyone, is a current client).  Here's a link to Primak's Twitter account.  The fact that she mentions in her Twitter bio that she is "rep'd by CAA" is enough to make me wish her nothing but the worst.

****Only read the following if you've watched all of season 2 of Orange Is The New Black*****

"With no more loyal followers to do her heavy lifting, and at the risk of being outed for beating up Red (Kate Mulgrew), Vee [Lorraine Toussaint] fled Litchfield through a hole in the green house. And in the final minutes of Season 2, as she made her way through the woods and approached the road, it looked as if she would get away for good.

"That is until Miss Rosa (Barbara Rosenblat) — who had just escaped the prison herself by stealing a van and speeding through the gate — spotted Vee, veered quickly off the road, smashed into her, and continued driving. 'Always so rude, that one,' Rosa said as Vee’s seemingly lifeless body laid bent on the side of the road, her eyes wide open and a stream of blood running from her nose.

"But any true Orange Is the New Black fan knows better by now than to assume that anything is so cut and dried on the hit Netflix series. BuzzFeed spoke with Toussaint about Vee’s fate and the actress asked rhetorically with a laugh, 'Is she dead?'

"Toussaint said she wouldn’t put it past the Litchfield villain to survive, but her fate for Season 3 remains unclear. 'We’re not sure if Vee is dead,' Toussaint said. 'She could be dead, she could not be dead. That’s an open-ended question still. Isn’t that a scary proposition? She might need to be dead. I don’t know.'

"As of today, Toussaint — who is filming a movie in Georgia — doesn’t know yet if she will return for Orange Is the New Black Season 3, which is currently in production in New York.

"A representative for Netflix told BuzzFeed they are not commenting on Vee’s storyline or Toussaint’s potential involvement in Season 3. Request for comment from Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan was not immediately returned."
