Doctor Who
The BBC has released two clips from the upcoming second episode of the new season of "Doctor Who" airing this Saturday. "Into the Dalek" sees The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) facing the Daleks and taking a trip into the most dangerous place in the universe - INSIDE a malfunctioning Dalek.

FX has ordered ten episodes of the single-camera comedy series "Baskets," created by Zach Galifianakis, Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel. Filming on the series begins next year for an airing in 2016.

"Hangover" star Galifianakis plays Chip Baskets, a Bakersfield man who pursues his dream, against all odds, to be a respected clown. But after an unsuccessful enrollment at a prestigious clowning school in Paris, the only job he can find is with the local rodeo. [Source: The Live Feed]

The Flash
The CW has released yet another trailer for its upcoming "Arrow" spin-off series "The Flash," this getting a better look at the first villain to appear (The Weather Wizard) along with a brief glimpse of Stephen Amell's cameo as Arrow. The show is slated to debut on October 7th.

American Horror Story: Freak Show
It's a little on the small side, but FX has released the superb artwork for the upcoming fourth season of its "American Horror Story" anthology series. Details about the character circus troupe setting can be garnered from the work with Michael Chiklis as a classic strongman, Kathy Bates as a bearded lady, Even Peters as the classic 1950s greaser rebel, and of course Sarah Paulson as a woman with two heads.
