This week in TV news, Sharknado 4 makes cast announcements, Game of Thrones breaks another record, we get a first look at Preacher, and more!


Anna Paquin Wilmer Valderrama
One of the juiciest shows on television, and one soon-to-be juicy drama have announced some big casting news this week.  Longtime favorite Grey’s Anatomy has snatched up Wilmer Valderrama for as a yet to be revealed role. All Shonda Rhimes is letting us know is Valderrama is playing Kyle Diaz, and has a multi-episode arc. Also, Executive Producer Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea have found the lead to their formerly untitled show Broken.  Anna Paquin will play Gemma, a cutthroat Dallas divorce attorney whose life begins to unravel in a myriad of ways. ABC’s new drama pilot will mark Paquin’s first return to a series regular since her turn as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO’s cult favorite True Blood.


HBO’s Emmy Winning mega hit series Game of Thrones released its season 6 trailer on Tuesday, racking up over 30 million views within the first 24 hours. The two minute piece hints at the fates of all your favorite Westeros residents, including the maybe not-so permanently dead Jon Snow. The trailer received 8 million hits on YouTube and 22 million hits on the show’s Facebook page, breaking season 5’s previous record of 27 million hits in the first day. Game of Thrones Season 6 premiers on April 24th.

AMC has released three first look character photos from the highly anticipated drama series Preacher. Slated to debut in May, the series is based on the cult comic book franchise of the same name.  Preacher is a supernatural, twisted, and darkly comedic drama that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga), and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) who are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between. Check out the other first look photos here, and see the Preacher trailer here.


Shark slayer Ian Ziering will return with Tara Reid to the fourth installment of the Sharknado franchise — working title Sharknado 4 — set to premiere this July. The new SyFy Channel film will take place five years after the events in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!. Joining the cast will be Cheryl Tiegs as mother of Ziering’s Fin, and the one and only Gary Busey as father of Reid’s April. Also cast are Tommy Davidson, Imani Hakim, Cody Linley and Masiela Lusha. Anthony C. Ferrante will return to direct Thunder Levin’s screenplay.
