- Lifetime has released a new teaser for its docu-series "True Tori," starring Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, and it's a far cry from their previous show "Tori and Dean."

- Netflix finally has given a Season 2 premiere date to its original series "Hemlock Grove." All 10 episodes of the supernatural drama will be available on Netflix on July 11 at 12:01 a.m. PT. Zap2it visited the set in October, so stay tuned for more information about the upcoming season.

- Stephanie Savage's new ABC drama "Astronaut Wives Club" found another leading lady.

The 10-episode drama will premiere in early 2015. [ The Hollywood Reporter]

- ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee has a new contract that will keep him at the network for several more years (terms weren't disclosed). Lee has had a mixed track record thus far, launching a couple hits in "Scandal" and "Once Upon a Time" but also seeing a number of shows fail to gain an audience. ABC is likely to finish fourth in the broadcast ratings for the 2013-14 season.

- MTV is releasing its new comedy series, "Faking It," to the MTV App on Tuesday (April 15). For 48 hours, viewers can catch the pilot episode of the show a full week before its television debut on Tuesday, April 22 at 10:30 p.m. "Faking It" is a high-school comedy about two best friends mistaken for lesbians. When this status gains them popularity, they keep up the ruse.

- "Chrisley Knows Best" has been ordered for a second, 12-episode season on USA. The show, which has been the first real unscripted success for the cable channel, follows the colorful, real-life family of Todd Chrisley in Atlanta.
