NBC's 'The Office' may have closed its doors for good (at least in America), but that hasn't stopped us from envisioning what the beloved NBC comedy might have been like on a different path. Among some of the early auditions from the series we've heard about, new footage of such comedy icons as Seth Rogen, Kathryn Hahn and even 'Breaking Bad' star Bob Odenkirk trying out for the show have emerged, painting a very different portrait of Dunder-Mifflin life.
The news from Upfront presentations will be pouring in over the next few days, and FOX is the latest to make some bold announcements. In addition to J.J. Abrams' futuristic cop thriller 'Almost Human,' the network has given series orders to its modern 'Sleepy Hollow' procedural, a 'Gang Related' drama featuring 'LOST's Terry O'Quinn, and Greg Kinnear's 'House'-like lawyer drama 'Rake,' from the UK series of the same name.

Given the success of 'Star Trek' and its upcoming sequel 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' we wouldn't expect either film's stars to follow up with regular TV careers. Yet, shortly following news that Karl Urban had joined FOX's J.J. Abrams-produced drama 'Human,' we've learned that 'Go On' star John Cho has booked yet another NBC role for upcoming pilot 'Sleepy Hollow,' written by 'Star Trek' writer Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, but how long will Cho stick around?
John Cho's star has been on the rise for years now, so it's a little surprising if he takes any television roles, let alone on a permanent basis. We've seen the 'Harold & Kumar' and 'Star Trek' star make appearances in shows like 'How I Met Your Mother' and even keep regular roles in the now-cancelled 'Flash-Forward' but now it seems that NBC and 'Go On' have made a wise investment in locking down John Cho for their new lineup.
With all of the major networks announcing their developments slates for Upfronts week, you didn't count out the little guys, did you? Turner prepares to display their latest ventures in the coming days, which today brings about edgy animation block Adult Swim's development lineup! Chief among them is an animated version of two buddies bound to deliver exactly what you crave...
