NBC is also developing legal drama J.S.I.D., from Adam Mazer (You Don’t Know Jack), Craig Borten, Original Film and Sony Pictures Television.

Shortly after CBS This Morning’s Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell addressed the absence of suspended co-anchor Charlie Rose on Tuesday’s show – “This is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment of where we stand and, more generally, the safety of women,” said O’Donnell –  CBS fired Rose. In a letter, CBS News president David Rhodes called revelations about Rose’s behavior on his PBS program “extremely disturbing and intolerable,” adding, “CBS News has reported on extraordinary revelations at other media companies this year and last. Our credibility in that reporting requires managing basic standards of behavior.” On Monday, CBS said it was investigating allegations of lewd behavior and sexual harassment against the 75-year-old journalist.
PBS also terminated its relationship with Rose, cancelling distribution of interview show Charlie Rose, which debuted in 1991. “PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect,” said PBS.
21st Century Fox agreed to establish a council to address workplace harassment and diversity issues at Fox News, as part of a settlement agreement with shareholders who accused the company of not doing enough to deal with sexual harassment and racial discrimination. “The Workplace Council gives our management team access to a brain trust of experts with deep and diverse experiences in workplace issues,” said Jack Abernethy, co-president of Fox News. “We look forward to benefiting from their collective guidance.”

While there are calls in many quarters for Senator Al Franken to resign after radio host Leeann Tweeden and a second woman accused him of groping, 36 of the Saturday Night Live alum’s female SNL co-workers signed a letter of support. After acknowledging that Franken’s behavior was “stupid and foolish” and the women involved deserved the apology he gave them, the letter said of Franken, who spent 15 years on the late night show, “We know Al as a devoted and dedicated family man, a wonderful comedic performer, and an honorable public servant. That is why we are moved to quickly and directly affirm that after years of working with him, we would like to acknowledge that not one of us ever experienced any inappropriate behavior; and mention our sincere appreciation that he treated each of us with the utmost respect and regard.”

The Lost Tapes: Patty Hearst premieres Sunday, November 26 at 9p on Smithsonian Channel, and David Royle, EVP of Programming & Production, Smithsonian Channel, calls it “the most gripping account of a shocking event, and of an extraordinary time in American history.” What makes it stand out? “Director Tom Jennings has uncovered audio tapes and film that haven’t been seen or heard since the 1970s,” Royle tells Cynopsis. “I found it just chilling to hear Patricia Hearst, the kidnapped heiress’s own voice on audio tapes that were released by the Symbionese Liberation Army. It’s startling when you realize how young she was at the time, a mere sophomore at the University of California. The Lost Tapes approach to story-telling means that you are immersed in the events, watching them unfold in front of you – it’s left to you, the viewer, to connect the dots, decide what to think, and how to judge the participants in those intense times.”

Former teen idol David Cassidy, who was admitted to a Florida hospital last week suffering from liver and kidney failure, has died at the age of 67. The troubled Partridge Family star had struggled with a drinking problem and this year said he was suffering from dementia. Later in his career, Cassidy starred in ABC Family comedy Ruby & The Rockits in 2009, and appeared on Celebrity Apprentice in 2011. “David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long,”  said his publicist, Jo-Ann Geffen.
