Smugly superior, a woman for whom appearances mean everything, she’s seemingly happily married to her indulgent husband, Karl, who thinks she’s simply fabulous. Despite nagging premonitions, Simone is devastated and her world upended when she learns Karl is cheating on her.

Cherry will executive produce alongside Imagine’s Brian Grazer (Empire, Genius) and Francie Calfo. Acme Productions’ Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis will also exec produce the series and reteam with Cherry after they previously collaborated on an ABC soap starring Reba McEntire that was passed over in 2016. Cherry reunites on Why Women Kill with CBS All Access executive vp originals Julie McNamara, who served as ABC’s head of drama and developed Desperate Housewives.

The role expands Goodwin’s relationship with CBS All Access after thee actress recently signed on to star in an episode of its Twilight Zone anthology. Her credits include Big Love and an episode of Netflix’s Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings. She is repped by WME, John Carrabino Management and Gendler & Kelly.

Ali Josh Dallas Comments Off on Josh Dallas on Ginnifer Goodwin ‘Manifest’ cameo: ‘It’s possible’

Never say never!

“Once Upon a Time” fans might get the fairytale reunion they’ve all been waiting for.

“Manifest” actor Josh Dallas told Page Six at the Paley Center for Media on Thursday that while there are no cameos on the NBC Show’s first season, “it’s possible” his wife, actress Ginnifer Goodwin, could guest-star in the future.

“I mean, I’m never going to say ‘no’ [to a Goodwin appearance],” he told us, adding that there’s nothing planned at the moment.

The series cast and crew is waiting to hear if “Manifest” will be renewed for a second season.

Dallas and Goodwin, both 40 years old, first met as co-stars on the set of ABC fairytale drama “Once Upon a Time,” where Dallas played the role of Prince Charming and Goodwin played Snow White.

The pair married in 2014 and they now share two children together.

Ali Steps Comments Off on ‘Steps’: Cast Options Extended On ABC Comedy Pilot Starring Ginnifer Goodwin

Since Steps wasn’t picked up for the pilot season for this fall I was afraid that was the last of it, but it appears they extended the options on the comedy! Thank you to Deadline for the news.

ABC’s comedy pilot Steps is staying alive. ABC Studios has picked up the options of the entire cast of the project, starring Once Upon a Time alumna Ginnifer Goodwin alongside Kyle Bornheimer, Barry Rothbart, Ryan Michelle Bathe, Julie Hagerty and Cameron Boyce.

Steps, based on the Swedish format Bonus Family, is currently being retooled by the pilot’s writer Kristin Newman (The Muppets). Picking up the cast certainly is a promising sign though there has been no decision on reshooting the pilot yet.

Steps, from ABC Studios and studio-based Mandeville TV, revolves around four adults in three houses raising three kids after two divorces — together. The pilot was in serious contention for a series pickup in May and was also brought up in the immediate aftermath of ABC’s cancellation of Roseanne, when the network considered picking up another comedy series to fill the void. (ABC ultimately replaced Roseanne with spinoff The Conners.)

Steps had been said to be similar to ABC’s new comedy series Single Parents. It is possible that the pilot would be tweaked to avoid overlap.

Newman executive produces Steps with Mandeville TV’s David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Laurie Zaks. Mandeville also has new ABC drama series The Fix.

The original series, created by Felix Herngren, has been a success and was renewed for a second-season, which began filming in the spring. The Swedish comedy has been picked up by Netflix outside of Scandinavia.

Steps is the second 2018 ABC pilot to be given a lifeline. Drama False Profits last month was authorized to open a writers room and generate three additional scripts, with the cast of the pilot — led by Bellamy Young and Vanessa Williams — extended.

Ali Josh Dallas, Once Upon A Time Comments Off on Once Upon a Time stars Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas talk the end of an era

Josh Dallas stands in front of a massive war room table, his Prince Charming rallying the troops in a last-ditch effort to prevent a great evil from stealing their happy endings. A combination of old guard and new from Once Upon a Time’s seven-season run sits before him.

“A new generation has joined the fight,” Dallas says in his most Charming tenor, nodding in the direction of Alice (Rose Reynolds), Robin (Tiera Skovbye), Henry (Andrew J. West), and Ella (Dania Ramirez). “Enemies have become friends,” he continues, looking to Regina (Lana Parrilla) and Zelena (Rebecca Mader). Charming concludes by addressing the presence of Wish Realm Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) as a new friend who feels like an old one. Once Upon a Time is days away from completing production on the final episode of the series, but everyone has gathered for his and real-life wife Ginnifer Goodwin’s final day on set.

The moment is charged as Charming reveals they’ve uncovered final villain Wish Realm Rumplestiltskin’s (Robert Carlyle) ultimate plan. Goodwin’s Snow White signals the Black Knights to bring in a stack of personalized storybooks — but so does Charming. They’re both trying to have their characters take the lead. When Dallas also does the signal during their third take of the scene, Goodwin can’t help but break character, ribbing her husband: “You can’t not do that, can you?” Mader cuts in with a laugh: “That’s called marriage.”

While OUAT has depicted Snow and Charming’s epic love story since the show’s launch in 2011, fans also got to watch their portrayers fall in love. The duo, who began dating while filming the show, got married in April 2014. They welcomed their first child a month later and their second in June 2016. Though Goodwin and Dallas left the show at the end of season 6, the two will return for the upcoming series finale, which airs over two weeks starting this Friday and concluding May 18. EW hit the set on the couple’s final day of filming to talk about the show’s legacy. [Editor’s note: The interviews took place separately, but were stitched together.]

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: As you head into your final day of production, how are you feeling right now?
GINNIFER GOODWIN: Oh my gosh, I’m a mess. Leaving a show was a really tough decision, but one that we spent years making. … It involved a lot of discussing child rearing with our showrunners, because we really wanted to be spending more time with the kids. We really needed to start Ollie in school — we had gotten him into a school in Los Angeles. But anyways, we had decided that that was what was best for our family. Though a difficult decision, it was one that we were very confident about. We left celebrating. I realized in coming back and having had the show decide to tell its final story in this final episode, that I had always counted on this show as being here — I always counted on my being able to return, sort of like when we all go off to college, we know that home is still home. Now knowing that home is being obliterated, as it were, that the sets will be torn down, I’ve been really overly emotional. I have been crying for the past 24 hours. It doesn’t help that the scenes, of which we are part, are classic Once Upon a Time scenes. They’re inspiring. The word “hope” is batted around an awful lot, so it is very nostalgic feeling. I’m definitely mourning the loss. I wish that it could just go on forever and that we always knew that it would be here when we’re homesick.

JOSH DALLAS: It feels surreal to be back, but also wonderful. I’m so grateful that I was part of the fabric of Once Upon a Time, a show that seemed to touch a chord in so many people and had a fan base that is so passionate, so smart, so vocal, and so willing to go along on the ride with us. It will always be a great thrill in my life that I was part of Once Upon a Time, and I got to play this character, and hopefully show a different side of this character to people, and show you things that you didn’t know about him. And hopefully, the show inspired. It’s a show about hope and it’s a show about how it’s your actions that define who you are. You’re not either all good or all bad. It’s about your choices that make your character. Saying goodbye to it is bittersweet, but I’m so grateful.

Ginnifer, what does it mean to you to have had a strong female character like Snow White brought into a new era?
GOODWIN: It’s amazing that, honestly, these guys wrote a truly female-driven show. I mean, they began years before we joined the fray in 2011. It was instrumental then in my choosing to take part. I was coming off of a female-heavy show [Big Love]. I was coming off of a show that was written in which the roles for women were very strong, but to come on to a show that was female-driven, and by the way written by men, was important to me. The way that women were depicted in this show, it was brave of the men to write them so bravely. It’s wild to me, also in the current climate, in talking about television, that it hasn’t been highlighted that Once Upon A Time has always done this. [Showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis] both come from very strong relationships with very strong women. Those have been definitely celebrated on screen in their writing.
