The trailer for Los Americans, also with Esai Morales, has been posted on YouTube (embedded below). The show premieres on May 26.

Seat42f has the teaser for next week's Game of Thrones, "A Golden Crown," written by Jane Espenson. The episode airs on Sunday (May 22) at 9 pm on HBO.

Ryan Robbins says he is filming a super secret project with Zak Santiago.

Riese premieres in Australia this Friday (May 20) on ABC2, after Sanctuary. (New episode in the U.S. tonight!)

And finally a few more details about Grimm:

"Grimm" is a new drama series inspired by the classic Grimm's Fairy Tales. Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Those weren’t stories -- they were warnings.

Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli "Turn The Beat Around") thought he prepared himself for the realities of working as a homicide detective until he started seeing things he couldn’t quite explain. When his ailing Aunt Marie (guest star Kate Burton, "Grey’s Anatomy") arrives, Nick's life turns upside down when she reveals they are descendants of an elite group of hunters, also known as "Grimms," who fight to keep the balance of humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world.

As Nick digs deeper into her past, he realizes that he will have to shoulder the responsibility of his ancestors -- and contend with a larger-than-life mythology of the Brothers Grimm that is now all too real. Russell Hornsby ("Lincoln Heights"), Bitsie Tulloch ("Quarterlife"), Silas Weir Mitchell ("Prison Break"), Reggie Lee ("Persons Unknown") and Sasha Roiz ("Caprica") also star.

"Grimm" is a production of Universal Media Studios and Hazy Mills Productions. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner ("Hot in Cleveland") serve as executive producers, Jim Kouf ("National Treasure," "Angel") and David Greenwalt ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Angel") are the creators/executive producers and Marc Buckland ("My Name Is Earl") is the director.

Grimm will air Fridays at 9 pm on NBC, after Chuck (and yes, against Fringe on Fox). The rest of the season will be filmed in Portland, too.

Sasha was at the upfronts earlier today. Here is a pic of him with his new cast mates (embedded from Spoiler TV):

Sean Hayes also posted a photo from the panel here.
