TV NEWS: Ellen Page's New Series, "Southland" Canceled, and more

Ellen Page (Whip It) and Alia Shawkwat ("Arrested Development") are teaming up with newcomer Sean Tillmann to write and produce an HBO single-camera comedy called "Stitch N' Bitch." It'll be about "two painfully cool hipster girls as they relocate from Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood to Los Angeles' Silver Lake enclave in hopes of becoming artists—of any kind." It still hasn't been determined whether they'll star, but in this recession, I wouldn't be surprised if the girls were looking for a steady gig.

• "Bored to Death" fans can rest easy, the quirky cable comedy has been renewed for a second season. The same goes for ABC's "Modern Family," "Cougar Town," and "The Middle." So far, it's looking like Kelsey Grammer's "Hank" is getting the shaft.

• NBC canceled "Southland." No worries for you Ben McKenzie lovers. You can see him in the 2010 thriller Forever.

Lauren Graham might take over the ill-stricken Maura Tierney's role in the much-anticipated family drama "Parenthood."

Kim Raver will join "Grey's Anatomy" as an unexpected guest from Owen's past that'll stall his relationship with Cristina. Dum-dum-dduuuuuuumm. It's about time. Their relationship is growing stale.
