ABC Studios and Kapital Entertainment are behind the half-hour with Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor also executive producing. (Deadline.com)

ROADIES (Showtime) - Cameron Crowe took to his blog with the news that the pay channel's series will not return for a second season: "My mind is still spinning from the giddy highs of working with this epic cast and crew. Though we could tell a thousand more stories, this run ends with a complete ten-hour tale of music and love. Like a song that slips under your skin, or a lyric that keeps speaking to you, we hope the spell of "Roadies" lingers. It was life-changing experience for all of us." (TheUncool.com)
STAR TREK: DISCOVERY (CBS) - Executive producer Alex Kurtzman has signed an overall deal with CBS Television Studios where he'll set up his solo production company, Secret Hideout, after previously partnering with Roberto Orci in K/O Paper Products.
