Tim Kring, creator of the TV series “HEROES” has a new book project “SHIFT” which will debut in August from Crown Books.
Set in the crucible of the 1960s, Shift is the story of Chandler Forrestal, a man whose life is changed forever when he is unwittingly dragged into a CIA mind-control experiment. After being given a massive dose of LSD, Chandler develops a frightening array of mental powers. With his one-in-a-billion brain chemistry, Chandler’s heightened perception uncovers a plot to assassinate President Kennedy.

Initial casting for the September revival of Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Angels in America” includes Zachary Quinto and Billy Porter, according to two theater executives involved with the Signature Theater Company production.
Mr. Quinto, who played Spock in the 2009 film “Star Trek” and Sylar on the television series “Heroes,” will portray the sarcastic Louis Ironson. Mr. Porter, an actor and singer who has performed in Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series, has been cast as Belize, the nurse and former drag queen.
A spokesman for the “Angels” production had no comment on the casting.
The Off Broadway revival will be directed by Michael Greif (“Next to Normal,” “Rent”), and will mark the first time that “Angels” has been produced on a major New York stage since the Broadway production of Parts 1 and 2 closed in December 1994.
The two parts of “Angels” will run in repertory at Signature from Sept. 14 through Dec. 19.
