Based on the novel by Daniel Cole, here is the description for the six-episode series: “Six people have been murdered, dismembered and sewn into the shape of one grotesque body — nicknamed the ‘Ragdoll.’ Assigned to the shocking case are DS Nathan Rose, recently reinstated to the London Met; his best friend and boss, DI Emily Baxter; and the unit’s new recruit, DC Lake Edmunds (played by Hale). The ‘Ragdoll Killer’ taunts the police by sending them a list of his next victims, with Rose’s name among them. And with those victims to protect, our heroes soon come under intense public scrutiny. A gruesomely imaginative serial killer thriller, ‘Ragdoll’ also captures the fascinating but flawed friends struggling with the consequences of institutionalisation and trauma.” Filming on the show is set to begin this spring in London, with a planned premiere later this year.

Dan McDermott and Kristin Jones will take the lead for AMC, and Philippa Collie Cousins, commissioning editor of drama for UKTV, will be executive producer for Alibi. Lizzie Rusbridger is a producer. BBC Studios will distribute the series. Best known for her parts on “Pretty Little Liars” and The CW’s “Katy Keene,” Hale’s other notable TV credits include “Life Sentence” and “Privileged.” On the film side, she has starred in “A Nice Girl Like You,” “Truth or Dare,” “Son of the South” and “The Unicorn,” and recently wrapped “Borrego.” She is repped by ICM and Reel Entertainment. Variety first reported news of Hale’s casting. Read original story Lucy Hale to Star in Serial Killer Thriller ‘Ragdoll’ at AMC, Alibi At TheWrap
an hour agoPiers Morgan Demands Apology From ‘The Talk’ for ‘Disgraceful Slurs’ Against HimPiers Morgan is demanding an apology from CBS daytime show, “The Talk,” saying the show’s hosts used “disgraceful slurs” against him. On Friday, the recently-departed ITV host tweeted: “Sharon’s been shamed & bullied into apologising for defending me against colleagues accusing me of racism because I don’t believe Meghan Markle’s bullsh*t. This is where we’ve reached. I demand an apology from those @TheTalkCBS bullies for their disgraceful slurs against ME.” His comment came after Sharon Osbourne, a co-host on the program, apologize for initially defending his comments about Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex. A representative for CBS did not immediately return TheWrap’s request for comment. Also Read: Sharon Osbourne Apologizes for Defending Piers Morgan: 'I Panicked, Felt Blindsided, Got Defensive' “After some reflection, after sitting with your comments & sitting with my heart I would like to address the discussion on ‘The Talk’ this past Wednesday,” “The Talk” co-host said in a statement tweeted late Thursday. “I have always been embraced with so much love & support from the [B]lack community & I have deep respect & love for the [B]lack community. To anyone of color that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said, I am truly sorry. I panicked, felt blindsided, got defensive & allowed my fear & horror of being accused of being racist take over. There are very few things that hurt my heart more than racism so to feel associated with that spun me fast! I am not perfect, I am still learning like the rest of us & will continue to learn, listen and do better.” Osbourne defended Morgan publicly earlier this week following his remarks about not believing Markle’s reveal that she had once contemplated suicide during her and Prince Harry’s Sunday interview with Oprah Winfrey, and his subsequent exit from ITV’s “Good Morning Britain.” On Tuesday, she defended Morgan on air, saying, “I think people forget, he’s in a position because they pay him for his opinion. He’s a royalist, and there’s nothing wrong with that.” Her co-host Elaine Welteroth responded, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. This is somebody who somehow can’t stand the heat, even though he dishes it every single day.” On Wednesday, co-host Sheryl Underwood added, “I have felt that Piers was racist in his stance against Meghan Markle and the last time he was on this show, I said as much.” Read Morgan’s tweet below: Sharon's been shamed & bullied into apologising for defending me against colleagues accusing me of racism because I don't believe Meghan Markle's bullsh*t.

an hour agoDaily Mail Rips CBS, Oprah Winfrey for ‘Inaccurate’ and ‘Doctored’ Tabloid Images in Meghan-Harry InterviewAssociated Newspapers, which publishes Britain’s Mail Online, the Daily Mail and The Mail On Sunday, wrote to Viacom CBS this week, accusing CBS of doctoring tabloid images in a montage featured in Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. In a Friday statement, Associated Newspapers issued support for the First Amendment and decried racism, but accused the interview of using doctored images of headlines. The company is calling for an investigation at CBS and for the montage to be removed from repeat broadcasts. A representative for the American company did not immediately return a request for comment. The statement said, “This is indefensible. It was inaccurate and viewers of their programme will have been seriously misled. It lent apparent support to claims that the Duchess of Sussex had been subjected to racist coverage by the British press.” Also Read: Ratings: 'CBS This Morning' Tops 'Today' and 'GMA' for First Time Ever With Oprah's Meghan-Harry Extras In a Friday letter reviewed by TheWrap, Associated Newspapers wrote to CBS head of litigation Naomi Waltman: “As a responsible broadcaster with integrity we believe therefore that you will deprecate, as we do, the deliberate distortion and doctoring of newspaper headlines in the misleading montage of British newspapers broadcast in ‘Oprah with Meghan and Harry’. Many of the headlines have been either taken out of context or deliberately edited and displayed as supporting evidence for the programme’s claim that the Duchess of Sussex was subjected to racist coverage by the British press. This editing was not made apparent to viewers and, as a result, this section of the programme is both seriously inaccurate and misleading.” The company went on: “One of the most egregious of the examples, so far as we are concerned, is the headline ‘Meghan’s seed will taint our Royal Family’. The original, unedited, headline in fact was a report of the suspension from UKIP of someone over this and other racist texts about Meghan. The headline you have broadcast is neither accurate nor could it be said to be an expression of “creative integrity”. It is a thoroughly dishonest misrepresentation of a newspaper headline and article which was the opposite of racist. No one viewing the programme would have understood this from the montage.” Attached to the letter were screenshots of tabloid headlines featured in the Sunday interview as well as the headlines that ran online.
