This week it’s been announced the second series of Broadchurch will begin on ITV on January 5.

I was absolutely hooked by the first series, I thought it was a brilliant drama, even if we did all guess whodunnit!

Well now there’s more good news for fans as a series of digital short stories tied into each episode of the new series are being released.

Each e-book will be released at midnight following the Monday night episode and will include characters featured in that night’s episode, delving deeper into their lives.

I think this is a brilliant idea!

George Clooney is working on a new TV series set at a Hollywood film studio during the 1990s.

Apparently it’s a dark comedy looking at the movie business through the eyes of the studio bosses running the studio.

At the moment Clooney is in talks with various TV networks but I would expect them to jump at the chance to work with the Oscar winner.

Clooney will be producing the show but we don’t know at this stage if he’ll appear in the series.

Game of Thrones fans, Westeros needs you!

Fans are being invited to submit artwork, songs, photographs, recipes and stories to be part of a new official compendium of the show.

All submissions must pertain to events that took place during series one to four of the TV series (so you can’t include anything from A Dance with Dragons).

Fans whose work is chosen will receive a copy of the book with their name listed as a contributor.

To find out more visit gameofthronescompendium.com. The book should be released in 2015.

Codes of Conduct is about New York’s high society.

If the pilot becomes a series (and with that calibre of talent involved it definitely should) it would be Bonham Carter’s first series regular role.

She’s expected to play a society maven whilst Hall will star as the eldest child of a New York billionaire.

As part of his new deal he’ll write the fifth and final book in the franchise plus some spin-offs before turning his attention to a new Young Adult novel about a young television actor, who is joined by fans on a once-in-a-lifetime cross-country road trip.
