As This Is Us comes to a close with its upcoming sixth and final season, Justin Hartley, has been busy lining up his next TV show, and this time as we previously reported he will not only star in it, but executive produce it.

Now comes word that CBS has given Hartley’s project, The Never Game, a pilot production commitment.  Justin had previously appeared on the network’s top-rated soap The Young and the Restless as Adam Newman before taking on primetime’s Kevin Pearson in the NBC hit drama, This Is Us.

According to Deadline, Hartley in The Never Game, will take on the role of  lone-wolf survivalist Colter Shaw, who roams the country as a ‘reward seeker’, using his expert tracking skills to help private citizens and law enforcement to solve all manner of mysteries while contending with his own fractured family.

This project will reunite Justin with Ken Olin (EP This is Us) who will executive produce and direct the pilot.  The Never Game is an adaption from the Jeffrey Deaver novel.

In a statement, Hartley shared: “I couldn’t be happier that The Never Game is coming to CBS, and that Colter Shaw will be brought to life on screen soon.  When I read the book, I was immediately drawn to the character and the story; developing this project with Ken has been a true labor of love. Colter is going to kick some serious ass, and I can’t wait for audiences to meet him.”

So. looking forward to hopefully seeing Justin’s new show make it to a full-series order? Comment below.

According to Deadline, Ripa will host Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she will have in-depth conversations with celebrity guests. Depending on the subject matter, a specialist or expert could also join the episode to provide insight.

In a statement on her new hosting gig and show, Ripa expressed: “After 23 years of interviewing celebrities, authors, musicians and experts on live TV, the big takeaway is that the most compelling and unfiltered conversations happen off camera. I have dreamed of a platform where I can have these honest talks without all the fuss and filter of a camera. Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.
