Net neutrality was back in the headlines over the weekend after California legislators passed the nation’s toughest net neutrality law. The legislation effectively restores in the state the Internet protections in place under President Obama. It also potentially pits the state against the FCC. The state Senate voted 27-12 to approve the bill, which prohibits Internet providers from blocking or slowing access to websites and charging fees for faster access, and bans zeo-related programs; the state Assembly passed the bill in a landslide 61-18 bipartisan vote. The bill now heads to California Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk.

As the November 2 premiere of the sixth and final season of Netflix’s House of Cards approaches, star Robin Wright told Net-A-Porter the series almost didn’t make it to the end zone.

The exec producers of CBS Big Brother issued a statement denying any issues with contestant JC Mounduix, the subject of recent online viewer concern after he was shown on the series’ 24/7 online feed sharing a bed with a fellow houseguest. It’s the second time Mounduix has raised viewer eyebrows; in July the live cam showed him using an ice cream to stimulate several housemates. Exec producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan said an investigation was immediately conducted, and “…if there was any indication from our houseguests of sexual misconduct, we and CBS would have taken immediate action.”

The longstanding legal battle between director Frank Darabont, CAA and AMC over profits from AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead may be inching closer to closure.

It’s a go for the third season of National Geographic series The Story of God with Morgan Freeman, after Nat Geo parent Fox concluded an investigation the company says “revealed no incidents of concern during any of our work with Mr. Freeman.” The status of the series was called into question in May after eight women accused Freeman of inappropriate behavior; Nat Geo halted preproduction at that time. New season is scheduled to premiere in 2019. Along with a season 3 renewal, Nat Geo also signed an exclusive first-look partnership deal with Freeman’s Revelations Entertainment to expand the series franchise by developing more nonfiction content.
