Morena Baccarin’s mini series The Red Tent premiere’s on the 7th and 8th. Below is information about the mini series:
Lifetime’s miniseries “The Red Tent,” based on the best-selling novel by Anita Diamant, premieres December 7 and December 8 at 9/8c. “The Red Tent” is a sweeping tale that takes place during the times of the Old Testament, told through the eyes of Dinah, the daughter of Leah and Jacob. Airing over two nights, the all-star cast includes Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Minnie Driver (“Return to Zero,” “About a Boy”), Emmy nominee Morena Baccarin (“Homeland”), Golden Globe nominee Rebecca Ferguson (“The White Queen”), Iain Glen (“Game of Thrones”), Will Tudor (“Game of Thrones”) and Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Debra Winger (“Terms of Endearment”).
The miniseries begins with Dinah’s (Ferguson) happy childhood spent inside the red tent where the women of her tribe gather and share the traditions and turmoil of ancient womanhood. The film recounts the story of Dinah’s mothers Leah (Driver), Rachel (Baccarin), Zilpah and Bilhah, the four wives of Jacob (Glen). Dinah matures and experiences an intense love that subsequently leads to a devastating loss, and the fate of her family is forever changed. Winger portrays Rebecca, Jacob’s mother while Tudor stars as Joseph, Dinah’s brother.
“The Red Tent” has sold millions of copies worldwide and has been translated in 28 languages. The novel is a New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today and Entertainment Weekly Top Ten Best Seller.
Produced by Sony Pictures Television, “The Red Tent” is executive produced by Paula Weinstein (“Blood Diamond”) and Nancy Bennett. Roger Young (“Law & Order”) directs from a script by Elizabeth Chandler (“The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”) and Anne Meredith (“Secrets of Eden”).

One of the joys for the final season of “The Mentalist” could be seeing the return of many old favorites, and you can already chalk up Morena Baccarin as one of them. It’s been years since Erica Flynn has graced the series, but she may have an important role to play in “Orange Blossom Ice Cream,” the third episode that is going to air come Sunday, December 14.
What is the subject of this story? Ultimately, it is this simple: The “Firefly” alum is bringing back her character as she hopes to get amnesty for her past crimes. What does she have to do in order to earn it? It is as simple (or not so simple) as making sure that she turns her boyfriend over to the authorities when Jane and Lisbon pay her a visit in Beirut.
This is one of the first significant appearances for Baccarin on TV since being written out of “Homeland,” and also since welcoming a child. It’s nice to see her back, and we feel like we will probably be seeing a heck of a lot more of her in the future. She hardly seems like the sort of person who is going to be gone from the medium for a particularly long period of time.
While we’ve said this before, it bears repeating now that we hope that this is only one of many major guest-star turns we have for the final season. If there is not another appearances from Rigsby and Van Pelt before we close the book on the show, it is going to be a letdown. We know we had five seasons and a good chunk of the sixth, but that is still not enough for us!

TVLine has confirmed that Morena Baccarin — whose previous voice work includes such DC Comics characters as Dinah Lance (in the animated Justice League series), Talia al Ghul (Son of Batman) and Cheetah (Batman: The Brave and the Bold) — is voicing S.T.A.R. Labs honcho Dr. Harrison Wells’ AI assistant/confidante.
Gideon was first featured in the Nov. 25 episode of the CW freshman, when Dr. Wells reevaluated their plan for test “subject” Barry Allen, as regards his and The Flash’s impact on the events of the year 2024.
Baccarin’s geek-boy bona fides include Firefly, V and Fox’s Gotham (where she soon will debut as DC Comics’ Dr. Leslie Thompkins), while her other TV credits include Homeland, The Mentalist and The Good Wife.
Baccarin next can be seen in Lifetime’s The Red Tent miniseries (airing Dec. 7 and 8) and reprising her role as The Mentalist’s Erica Flynn (on Dec. 14).

I have switched the Media Archive over to WordPress from phpmotion. The reason being that my host is ending the support for phpmotion sites and will delete all phpmotion sites left in about 3 weeks because that and other similar youtube clone scripts used updated in ages, and official support for the php version it runs on is also ending. Too bad phpmotion developers seemed to have abandoned their own script without notice, it was a nice script but now it’s unsecure, outdated and a spam magnet, so out it goes.

I got back from the hospital a few hours ago I can’t tell you how weird it is writing this with my laptop, the screen feels huge after 8 days of accessing online world though a smart phone. That device is just fabulous, but computer is always a computer
Anyway, I’m home. Don’t expect any updates anywhere until propably after the weekend at the earliest, and then still I’ll be updating only as long as I feel I’m not overexerting myself. I’m still very much recovering and got a month of sick leave for now, blood tests etc. once a week until I hear otherwise. And I just want to catch my breath for a few days and catch up on everything I’ve missed

I’m still in the hospital, and don’t know when I’ll be released.
I can now confirm, that the big thing was/is my liver accompanied by a few other smaller things. Seems I’ve started recovering now though because my liver vitals improved a lot over the weekend.
There are still some liver related tests and biopsy results pending, and I guess they want to wait for those because the usual things that they look for first came up all clear, and now checking for other possible causes. So there’s no diagnosis yet.
So, heading to right direction at the moment but not out of the woods yet.
