Starz has released a trailer for the upcoming second episode of its time travel fantasy drama "Outlander". Claire's arrival starts coming under question, whilst Jamie Fraser looks like he's about to be getting some rough treatment.

Following the success of "Salem" and "Manhattan," WGN America has given a straight-to-series thirteen-episode order to hourlong drama "Titans" from Peter Tolan ("Rescue Me") and Paul Giamatti.

The story centers on the Farrell clan, a family who has been living off the grid in the hills of Appalachia who will defend their way of life using any means necessary. The network is also considering Akiva Goldsman's pre-Civil War slave drama "Underground" for a series. [Source: The Live Feed]

The Walking Dead
The official fifth season trailer for AMC's zombie drama "The Walking Dead" has been remade entirely with LEGO characters. It's a quite faithful version which, combined with the very dark subject matter of the trailer, is oddly disconcerting to watch.
