Miranda’s Rights
NBC has handed out a script commitment to legal soap “Miranda’s Rights”. The story follows 28-year-old Miranda Coale, who, six years after a sex scandal upended her life, gets a shot at redemption when she’s hired by a group of millennials at a start-up law firm.

Katie Lovejoy (“The Selection”) will pen the script and exec produce alongside John Glenn (“Eagle Eye”). The aim is to do for legal dramas what “Grey’s Anatomy” did for medical dramas. [Source: THR]

Doctor Who
In a recent Twitter Q&A session, “Agent Carter” actress Hayley Atwell was asked if she might want to make a guest appearance on “Doctor Who”. Her answer was fairly straight forward – no, because she wants to BE The Doctor. Add her name to the candidate list for when Peter Capaldi retires. [Source: Twitter]

WGN America’s period drama “Manhattan” has enlisted Neve Campbell for a key recurring role in the second season and has also released the first-look trailer ahead of its October 13th premiere.

Campbell will recur as Kitty Oppenheimer, the formidable first lady of Los Alamos whose intersection with Abby Isaacs (Rachel Brosnahan) will affect both their husbands and the future.
