FREUD (Netflix, New!) - The streaming service has ordered its first Austrian original: "a German-language period crime thriller that sees the young eponymous psychoanalyst involved in a nerve-racking investigation into a murderous conspiracy. The story sees Sigmund Freud in Vienna in 1886, just as his revolutionary theories are being met with strong opposition from colleagues and wider Austrian society. It's at this time he meets the war veteran and policeman Alfred Kiss and notorious medium Fleur Salomé and unwittingly becomes part of the hunt for a serial killer." Marvin Kren is helming the eight-episode project from scripts by himself, Stefan Brunner and Benjamin Hessler. Satel Film's Heinrich Ambrosch and Bavaria Fiction's Moritz Polter also serve as executive producers. (Deadline.com)

NOS4A2 (AMC) - YouTube star Jahkara Smith (aka Sailor J) will recur on the upcoming drama as Maggie Leigh, "Iowa's bubbly, purple-haired librarian with a Scrabble Bag portal to the universe." (Deadline.com)
PSYCH (USA) - The cable channel is reportedly mulling a sequel to last December's "Psych: The Movie." The project however is on hold as co-stars James Roday and Dule Hill are currently series regulars on "A Million Little Things" and "Suits," respectively. (TVLine.com, 7/3)
SADIE SPARKS (Disney Channel, New!) - Craig Revel-Horwood (Cornelius), Rufus Hound (Gilbert) and Georgia Lock (Sadie) will lend their voices to a 52-part supernatural animated series at the cable network about "a 14-year-old girl, Sadie, who finds out she has magical abilities and becomes a wizard-in-training, with the guidance and mentorship from a very old and very grumpy rabbit, Gilbert, who is sent to the human world from the Magical Realm to train Sadie and harness her volatile magical skills." Also cast are Sammy Moore, Tyger Drew-Honey, Dominique Moore, Morwenna Banks, Laura Aikman, Dan Renton Skinner and Rufus Jones. Director Bronagh O'Hanlon and writer Rebecca Hobbs are spearheading the project for Brown Bag Films and Cyber Group Studios. (Deadline.com)
UNTITLED CRISTIANO RONALDO REALITY PROJECT (Facebook Watch, New!) - Global soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is in talks to star in a 13-episode docu-series for the streaming service, which "could get a paycheck of around $10 million."
