xBox Studios Copying CW with Supernatural Series

xBox Studios is working hard to make themselves compete with steaming media giants like Netflix. That of course means creating their own series is the first step in competing and that is exactly what they are doing. xBox Studios is reportedly working on a comedy show called East Of Exurbia. It is loosely based on a story that is considered bro-fiction about three friends who find themselves as trouble makers on hill that is a supernatural portal. It will be written by Nick Kreiss and Ian Wolterstorff.

This show sounds exactly like what we would expect from xBox. They have made it clear that they aim for guys mostly and it could very well end up being a guy’s kind of service.

With the pilot star committed to the second season of ABC's "Happy Endings," Lamorne Morris' made his first appearance as Coach replacement Winston.

Winston's introduction is a relative non-event, with the episode choosing to focus on Jess (Zooey Deschanel) getting her stuff back from philandering ex-boyfriend Spencer (Ian Wolterstorff), her "Kryptonite", according to the episode title.

Upon first meeting, Winston doesn't make as big of a contribution in the plucky humor department as Jess, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Nick (Jake Johnson), but he does serve a vital role on "New Girl": the straight man.
