TV Tidbits: Rumer Willis Heads to Hawaii, the ‘Guys With Kids’ Get Lucky

ALTRumer Willis Heads to Hawaii: Masi Oka and Rumer Willis may be finding love in paradise. Willis is set to guest star on an upcoming episode of Hawaii 5-O as a potential love interest for Oka’s Dr. Max Bergman, a bank teller named Sabrina. Sabrina gets held up in a botched robbery, so we’re not quite sure that it’s going to last. [EW]

Guys With Kids Defies The Odds: Well, the guys with the kids have officially escaped the ax, for now. NBC just ordered four more episodes of the critically panned comedy, which recently brought in 3.8 million viewers and a 1.3 in its demo. While 17 episodes is not a complete vote of confidence, it’s generous considering they axed Animal Practice with similar numbers. [TVLine]

MTV Takes on a Hot Mess: After the critical success of Awkward, MTV has picked up Hot Mess — a comedy created by Awkward showrunner Lauren Iungerich. The show will focus on Annabelle Stephenson‘s Amanda, a hot mess who basically is terrible at dating just like most other girls in their 20’s. Her personality sounds a bit like Jess from New Girl, but we’ll give it a shot. [Hollywood Reporter]

Pirate Casting, Ahoy:

Zach McGowan, Luke Arnold and Jessica Parker Kennedy (of The Secret Circle fame) have joined the cast of Starz‘s upcoming original series Black Sails, an eight-episode pirate adventure set 20 years before the events in Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island. The boys are pirates, she’s a prostitute. The first season is set to debut in 2014. [Deadline]
