PROMOTIONS AND ARRIVALS AT "NASHVILLE": Sisters Lennon and Maisy Stella, who portray the daughters of Rayna and Teddy on "Nashville," have been promoted to series regulars for season two. As the first season progressed, the sisters' singing talents became increasingly prominent, while their dramatic storylines were also expanding, making it hard to believe that "Nashville" was their acting debut. Also upgraded is Chris Carmack, who joined midseason as Will, an aspiring singer with a complicated personal life. "Nashville's" most recent signing is newcomer Chaley Rae as Zoey, Scarlett's childhood friend, who desires a country music career.
After waiting for almost six months for a decision, the critically acclaimed ABC Family Channel series "Bunheads," has been officially canceled.
Someone important may be arriving in Salem later this year. "Days of our Lives" has been seeking a middle-aged, attractive and charismatic man who has a son, and, of course, secrets about their past. The contract role is expected to start shooting this month.
Former "Days" actors Molly Burnett (ex-Melanie) and Charles Shaughnessy (ex-Shane), along with Travis Schuldt, who played Ethan on "Passions," star in a film called "This Magic Moment" on the Hallmark Channel on Saturday, Aug. 17.
