Jennifer Beals will reunite with her “L Word” creator/executive producer Ilene Chaiken for the new ABC series “Venice”. The “Romeo & Juliet”-like series, which Chaiken will be an EP and showrunner on, ”is a soap about the haves and the have-not’s of California’s most seductive city, Venice. It focuses on two rival families and a forbidden and dangerous romance emerging between them as the two families battle for control of Venice.”

Skyler Samuels has snared the lead role in NBC’s “Bloodline”, “a pulpy, highly stylized look into the cheeky world of Bird Benson (Samuels), a smart, irreverent and strong young girl who, due to an accident of birth, finds herself caught in the middle of an epic struggle between two warrior families set against the backdrop of modern suburbia.” Jonathan Banks, of “Beverly Hills Cop” fame, plays the girl’s grandfather.

Peter Sarsgaard, soon in “Lovelace”, has joined the cast of AMC’s “The Killing”. ”Season 3 follows Detective Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) as she investigates the disappearance of another teen girl. Sarsgaard will play Tom Seward, a death row inmate for whom the clock is ticking down. A lifelong convict born into poverty and crime, Seward’s been in and out of the system for violent crimes since he was 10”.

Matthew Goode (“Burning Man”) will star in Showtime’s “Vatican”, ”a provocative contemporary genre thriller about spirituality, power and politics set against the modern-day political machinations within the Catholic church. Goode will play Papal Secretary Bernd Koch, the current Pope’s closest confidante, giving him a very powerful perch within the inner-circle of the Vatican.”

Virginia Madsen (“Firewall”) will star in NBC’s new modern-day “Hatfields & McCoy’s” series. ”A startling death re-ignites the feud between these two legendary families in present-day Pittsburgh, unleashing decades of resentment. Madsen will play the matriarch of the McCoy clan, Eloise McCoy, a self-made woman who, despite her seemingly calm demeanor, is an extremely vengeful and calculated woman who will do anything for her family.” Charlize Theron is a producer.

Danny Canon (“Judge Dredd”) will direct the U.S pilot for “The Tomorrow People”, a new CW drama based on the British series.

Australian actress Bojana Novakovic (“Edge of Darkness”) has joined the cast of “Rake”, the U.S version of the Australian series. Novakovic plays a love interest for star Greg Kinnear.

Former “The Killing” star Billy Campbell has joined Emma Roberts for FOX’s “Delirium”. ”Based on Lauren Oliver’s bestselling book trilogy, it is set in a world where love is deemed illegal and can be eradicated with a special procedure. With 95 days to go until her scheduled treatment, Lena Holoway (Roberts) does the unthinkable: she falls in love. Campbell will play wealthy political leader Thomas Fineman. With laser-white teeth and a John Boehner tan, he is the head of a lobbying organization called Deliria Free America who supports the use of the brain modification that prevents citizens from falling in love and leads to a peaceful, ordered society.”

FX has greenlit “The Bridge”, a new drama pilot starring Diane Kruger and Demián Bichir, to series. The show, running for 13 episodes, will begin filming in April for a July premiere.

Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West will play Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, respectively, in a 90-minute telemovie for BBC 4, “Burton & Taylor”.
