Katey Sagal (The Conners, Sons of Anarchy) is set to star in the ABC drama Rebel, inspired by the life of Erin Brockovich. ABC’s given the drama a straight to series order and is anticipating a 2021 premiere.

In addition to Sagal as Annie “Rebel” Bello, the season one cast includes John Corbett as Grady Bello, James Lesure as Benji, Lex Scott Davis as Cassidy, and Tamala Jones as Lona. Ariela Barer plays Ziggie, Kevin Zegers is Nate, Sam Palladio is Luke, and Andy Garcia plays Cruz.

Rebel comes from executive producer Krista Vernoff (Grey’s Anatomy). Vernoff wrote the first episode and Tara Nicole Weyr directs. Brockovich will be involved as an executive producer along with Alexandre Schmitt, John Davis, John Fox, and Andrew Stearn.

“Erin Brockovich has never stopped the extraordinary work she does fighting for her clients like they’re family, and Krista Vernoff’s take on her life today in Rebel is undeniable,” said Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment. “Katey Sagal is a powerhouse as ‘Rebel’ and with Andy Garcia, John Corbett and the rest of the phenomenal cast, viewers are going to fall in love with these characters and the world Krista has created for them.”

“The work that Erin Brockovich does in this world is so powerful and so important that it almost defies description. Erin works tirelessly for social, legal and environmental justice despite the lack of a formal degree. She inspires everyone she meets to become their own heroes, and somehow, she also keeps us laughing. It has been a tremendous honor to get to know Erin and to create a show inspired by her,” said Vernoff. “I am thrilled to be working with a dream cast led by the extraordinary Katey Sagal with the incredible Tara Nicole Weyr directing. I could not be more excited about the series order for Rebel, and I’m so grateful for the support of Dana Walden, Karey Burke, Craig Hunegs, Jonnie Davis and all my partners at Walt Disney Television and ABC.”

Brockovich added, “Rebel is not just my story, it is all of our stories. There is a hero that exists in all of us, and I am so excited for Krista Vernoff and ABC to bring their visionary storytelling to this series. The name ‘Rebel’ oozes self-empowerment, courage and rising above, even in the worst of circumstances. I cannot think of anyone better to play this role than the indomitable Katey Sagal, who is such a force, as well as the rest of this extraordinary cast.”

The Plot, Courtesy of ABC:

Inspired by the life of Erin Brockovich today, Annie “Rebel” Bello is a blue-collar legal advocate without a law degree. She’s a funny, messy, brilliant and fearless woman who cares desperately about the causes she fights for and the people she loves. When Rebel applies herself to a fight she believes in, she will win at almost any cost.

Family Guy Premiere Finally Explains Who Can Understand Stewie — Watch

Published

Stewart Gilligan Griffin has something to say, and for the first time in Family Guy history, the whole world is going to hear him say it.

Sunday’s season premiere (Fox, 9:30/8:30c), appropriately titled “Stewie’s First Word,” finds the youngest member of the Griffin tribe uttering his first on-record word. Confused? Get in line behind Brian.

“I don’t get it, Stewie, you’ve been talking forever,” Brian says in TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek (above). “Why did everyone suddenly understand you now?” Stewie doesn’t have an exact answer, but he gives it a shot, saying, “I don’t know. I was feeling such intense emotion in the moment, and that one word somehow just burst through.”

TVLine spoke with executive producer Rich Appel back in 2015 (literally 100 episodes ago!), at which point he offered this explanation for why only certain people seem to be able to understand Stewie: “Within the family, Brian and sometimes Chris [always understand him]. But to the rest of the outside world — Peter and Lois and Peter’s friends — it’s important that they can’t.”

(Here’s hoping that Sunday’s premiere offers a more concrete explanation.)

Hit PLAY on the video above to watch Stewie put his theory to the test, then drop a comment with your own thoughts below.

What are the steps taken by the site to improve security?

As seen as a common practice, there were several times when if someone had logged in from another device than an individual would use their social media site, the computer would serve a notice which was an alarm for the user to know that there were multiple logins to the social media which would come along with the option of restoring and changing the password of the site, now that will be removed.

Users can also have access to another browsing area where everything that the search will remain safe and won’t reach others even if they try to.
