Fringe
After four days of shooting, filming on the final season of Fox’s cult sci-fi drama "Fringe" has been shut down for two weeks so co-star John Noble can get treatment for a sleep disorder.

Noble has reportedly had the condition for awhile, but it was aggravated by his recent intense schedule of a transpacific flight, Comic-Con and then the show's production. [Source: Deadline]

React
"Act of Valor" director Scott Waugh will produce and helm the pilot for TNT's new grounded military drama series "React" which follows a secret black ops task force.

Former "Suits" showrunner Sean Jablonski will pen the script while Barry Josephson ("Bones") is also attached to produce. [Source: THR]

Low Winter Sun
Mark Strong is set to star in AMC's American adaptation of the 2006 British miniseries "Low Winter Sun" alongside James Ransone. Strong will be reprising the same role of Frank Agnew which he played in the original.

The story kicks off with the murder of a cop by Detroit detective Agnew. Seemingly the perfect crime, in reality the murder activates forces that will forever alter that detective’s life and pull him into the heart of the Detroit underworld. [Source: Deadline]

Mr. Selfridge
Masterpiece and ITV Studios will co-produce the new drama "Mr. Selfridge" from creator Andrew Davies ("Pride And Prejudice," "Bleak House") and starring Jeremy Piven in the title role.

Mr. Selfridge tells the real-life story of the flamboyant and visionary American founder of Selfridge’s London’s lavish department store. The deal is part of a package that includes new episodes of "Poirot," "Miss Marple," "Inspector Lewis" and "Endeavour". [Source: Variety]
