As production on Marvel’s Netflix series The Defenders looms closer, the directing team is being assembled, and they’ve chosen a terrific filmmaker to kick things off. Per Marvel, S.J. Clarkson will be helming the first two episodes of The Defenders and will serve as an executive producer on the first installment of the eight-episode miniseries. The filmmaker is no stranger to Marvel series, as she did a terrific job directing the first two episodes of Jessica Jones, which still stands as the best show Marvel has released thus far. Clarkson has also helmed episodes of Vinyl, Orange Is the New Black, and Dexter, but giving her the reigns of the first two episodes of The Defenders is a pretty terrific choice, as she’ll get to set the aesthetic tone of this Avengers-style miniseries.

The size of the order for Season 8 has not yet been decided, but there's been speculation that it will not be a full-season -- 22 episodes.Unfortunately, freshman series "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior" didn't survive the bubble battle and is being canceled. It reportedly came down the the wire between the two crime dramas. The "Criminal Minds" spin-off never achieved the success of the "CSI" and "NCIS" franchises' spin-offs, failing to find an audience during its short midseason run.CBS also recently canceled freshman series "The Defenders," "$#*! My Dad Says" and "Mad Love" and added two new shows to its line-up: "Person of Interest" (starring "Lost's" Michael Emerson) and the comedy "Two Broke Girls."... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/05/cbs-renews-csi-ny-cancels-criminal-minds-suspect-behavior.html
