Nicholas D’Agosto in Trial & Error

Nicholas D’Agosto talks murder mystery and comedy in ‘Trial & Error’

Murder has never been funnier than in NBC’s Trial & Error. The series follows Nicholas D’Agosto as Josh, an eager New York defense lawyer who ventures to the small Southern of East Peck Hill for his first case. Could beloved and eccentric poetry professor, Larry Henderson (John Lithgow), who constantly incriminates himself by saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, possibly have murdered his wife? Hilarity ensues as Josh’s ragtag legal team of bumbling misfits piece together the clues and mount a defense. Tonight’s two-part finale will reveal who the killer is–and whether Josh has a future as a lawyer.

Tricia Helfer as Charlotte

Tricia Helfer on ‘Lucifer’ and the devil’s “Mum”

Tricia Helfer landed one mother of a role on Fox’s supernatural drama, Lucifer. After escaping Hell, the Devil’s “Mum,” played by Helfer, journeyed to Earth where she quickly inhabited the body of a deceased woman named Charlotte. Since then, she’s attempted to mend her strained relationships with Lucifer and Amenadiel, while trying to adjust to her human host body. Mum’s antics certainly provide plenty of humor–but be warned. She’ll stop at nothing to return her family to the blissful realm above. Heaven help us all.

Victor Zinck Jr.

‘Motive’ star Victor Zinck Jr. talks Detective Mitch Kennecki and series finale

CTV’s procedural drama, Motive, experienced a changing of the guard in season four. Warren Christie’s Sergeant Mark Cross disappeared, while Victor Zinck Jr. joined the series’ homicide team as Detective Mitch Kennecki. The son of District Commander Walter Kennecki, Mitch’s cocky attitude and brash work demeanour initially rubbed Detective Angie Flynn [Kristin Lehman] the wrong way. He’s been missing in action lately, but Mitch Kennecki returns in a major way in August 23’s “Chronology of Pain” and for the series finale, “We’ll Always Have Homicide”, on August 30.
