(February 21, 2014)
*Meagan Good has landed another NBC drama.
The “Deception” alum has been tapped to star in the network’s regeneration drama pilot, “Babylon Fields,” which centers on the dead rising again in Babylon, N.Y., where lives are regained, old wounds are reopened and families are restored — for better or worse. The newly regenerated bodies are healing faster and growing stronger, prompting discussion that this might be the next step in human evolution.
Good will play Janine Beltran, a beautiful local doctor with an edge to her.

Based on the popular Spanish series, “The Mysteries Of Laura” follows the life and relationships of Laura Diamond (Messing), a female homicide detective who can handle murderous criminals — but not her hell-raising twin children.
Alonso plays Billy, Laura’s partner in crime. The actor’s casting stems from a talent holding deal the network inked with him following his stint on last season’s drama “Deception” opposite Meagan Good.

*Fans of Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy won’t have to wait long before he crashes the big screen in the long-awaited follow-up to “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.”
According to the actor, Burgundy will have a new romantic relationship on his hands in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” as well as the company of returning castmates Steve Carell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner.
“We just kept thinking of different scenarios,” Ferrell said. “One of the ideas was what if Ron has an African-American girlfriend? That would be interesting commentary, as well as funny,” Ferrell told theGrio.com, regarding the pressure to successfully follow the first film as well as the inclusion of an interracial relationship for the popular newscaster.
*With the success of VH1′s Single ladies, a show now entering its third season, a book on the subject was not going to be far behind.
In anticipation of the upcoming season Ashley Antoinette has written a special eBook series that will be released between the season two finale and the season three premiere, beginning November 26.
The TV show stars Denise Vasi (Raquel), LisaRaye McCoy (Keisha), and Charity Shea (April); and the eBook will focus on their characters.
The book will be available on iTunes, Amazon and Barnes and Noble.com.
And speaking of books…
*Just look who survived the whole “inappropriate dress for a preacher’s wife debacle” and has managed to change the topic. Meagan Good and her husband, DeVon Franklin, are writing a book about not having sex throughout the yearlong courtship that led to their 2012 nuptials.
Yep! Titled The Wait, the book tells you all about how Good knew Franklin was “the one” because he agreed to wait until marriage to be intimate with her.
“It’s that waiting period where we really get the most anxiety and the most frustration,” Franklin told Sister 2 Sister. “It’s all about how you handle the waiting period in life, from the relationship wait, to the marriage wait, to the career wait.”
How did the couple go so long without sex? “We held each other accountable because we honored the commitment,” Franklin told ESSENCE.com. “And we both were already committed to it.”
The Wait is slated for a 2014 release.
