CMT has ordered 6 episodes of Gone Country. Bobby Brown, Carnie Wilson, Dee Snider, Diana DeGarmo, Julio Iglesias Jr, Maureen McCormick and Sisqo are slated to see if who can become the next big country superstar.

Toni Collette will star in Showtime’s new Steven Spielberg comedy pilot, The United States of Tara, Her character is a wife and mother to two teenagers, and she’s got multiple personalities. Suburban Sybil.
