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.

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!
