This is brand-new information! "Friends" will be available for the first time on Blu-ray this fall. Warner Bros. Home Video's remastered "Friends: The Complete Series," releasing Nov. 13, includes all 236 episodes of the NBC sitcom, plus over 17 hours of special features (with all-new bonus perks unavailable on the corresponding DVD collection) and a 32-page episode guide.

' Supernatural's" devilish Marc Pellegrino, the omnipresent guest star who apparently tops Hollywood's casting directors' Rolodexes beside Titus Welliver and Mark Sheppard, is appearing this fall on NBC's "Grimm." He'll play Hank's ( Russell Hornsby) high school buddy, a coyote-like creature whose daughter is missing. Will Hank finally learn the truth about the supernatural world he obliviously inhabits?

Recurring "NCIS" star Brian Dietzenwill will be a series regular when the long-running CBS procedural returns for its 10th season promoted. He plays Jimmy Palmer, the eager assistant of medical examiner "Ducky" Mallard ( David McCallum), who had a heart attack in last season's finale -- which also saw Jimmy's much-anticipated destination wedding to Bree thwarted by a bomb blast at NCIS headquarters.

"Smallville's" Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders are returning to the CW this fall as co-showrunners of " Beauty and the Beast," the network's reboot of the 1980s CBS drama. They join writers/executive producers Jennifer Levin and Sherri Cooper ("Brothers & Sisters") and will reunite with actress Kristin Kreuk, who played Lana Lang on the long-running Superman series. Peterson and Souders' last CW gig was on "The Secret Circle," serving as consulting producers before it was canceled after its freshman season. That's what we call a "small" world. Ba-dum-bump.
