TV News Roundup: Cinemax Developing Marvel’s ‘Scarlet,’ Robert Doherty of ‘Elementary’ Signs Deal with CBS

Cinemax is in the early stages of developing Brian Michael Bendis comic book “Scarlet” as a series, Robert Doherty inks 3-year deal with CBS and more in Friday’s TV news roundup. 

DEVELOPMENT

Cinemax is currently developing a TV adaptation of “Scarlet,” based on Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev’s comic of the same name, published under Marvel’s Icon imprint. According to Deadline, Bendis announced, albeit coyly, at the ATX Television Festival in Austin that the property was being developed by HBO, but Variety has confirmed that it will be developed for Cinemax, which is owned by the premium cable network. The comic follows a rebellious protagonist named Scarlet Rue who ends up sparking a new American revolution. Bendis also co-created “Jessica Jones” and “Powers,” both of which have been adapted for TV. Development for “Scarlet” is in the early stages.

DEALS

Rob Doherty, creator, executive producer and showrunner of CBS’ “Elementary,” has signed a new three-year deal with CBS Television Studios. He will continue as showrunner on “Elementary,” which is heading into its fifth season, and will supervise new projects for CBS TV. The news was first reported by Deadline.

“Grey’s Anatomy” actors Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens, Jr. and Kevin McKidd have renewed their deals and will return to the ABC drama for the upcoming 13th season. They’ve signed on after star Ellen Pompeo inked her deal to return and Sara Ramirez confirmed her departure from the show.

FIRST LOOK

Disney XD and Lego have released the first trailer for “LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures,” which takes place in the period between “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi.” On June 11 at 8 p.m. on YouTube, Instagram star Zack King will be hosting a “Brick-Building” event where fans can get a sneak peek of the upcoming animated series.

DATES

PBS announced that “The Great British Baking Show” will return for Season 3 on July 1 at 9 p.m. on the network. The competition show, which features amateur bakers vying to be the best all-around baker, will feature returning judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood joined by hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc.
