The BBC is producing a 12-episode series about the ship that launched DiCaprio and Winslet’s stardom. Titanic: Blood & Steel will cover the construction of the boat amidst the political unrest in England at the time. Neve Campbell is set to star as a reporter covering the ship’s first voyage and Chris Noth will star as financial magnate J. P. Morgan, who New York Magazine describes as the Mr. Big of his time. The show doesn’t have US distribution yet.

-ABC has signed up for a show from Seinfeld writer Jennifer Crittenden and and Scrubs writer Gabrielle Allan that will deliver some 90s nostalgia. The show will focus on a “super cool” all-girl band from the 90s who attempt a comeback after 20 years and a dramatic split. Crittenden told THR: “We both loved Spinal Tap and The Go-Go’s and this is a way to meld those together; what would The Go-Go’s be like if they had a huge horrible break-up and then reunited 20 years later?” Crittenden and Allan have already teamed-up for Fox's feature film, What’s Your Number? staring Anna Faris and Chris Evans, due out next month.
