Adrianne Palicki Engaged to Jackson Spidell

09/10/2014 AT 10:45 AM EDT

Adrianne Palicki is engaged to stuntman Jackson Spidell, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The couple met on the set of the action thriller John Wick, which will be released in October.

Palicki is certainly having a busy fall: In addition to her engagement, the actress will be seen on ABC’s Agents of SHIELD and returning to NBC’s About A Boy.

Ironically, Palicki, 31, best known for her long-running role on TV’s Friday Night Lights, hinted at whether she had a romantic interest while promoting GI Joe: Retaliation with Channing Tatum in 2013.

“Oh … I don’t know,” Palicki said, ducking the question, although she did admit to having a type when asked if she’d choose between Friday Night Lights‘s studly but troubled Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch) or sweet and sensitive Landry Clarke (Jesse Plemons).

“Probably Riggins when I was younger, but I’m going to say Landry now that I’m older,” Palicki said at the time. “I want someone who is stable and awesome, and a good person who treats me well.”

Why You Should Get Hulu Plus

huluplusmain

There’s no denying the fact that online streaming platforms are the thing of now. Unrestrained by the finite schedules of broadcast, streaming networks, such as Netflix, are offering fans the opportunity to watch old (and original) programming on their TV, computers, or phones. Thanks to the success of Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards and the hype surrounding upcoming series, The Cosmopolitans and Transparent, Netflix and Amazon Prime are getting a lot of attention while Hulu has quietly ramped up its offerings — making it one platform everyone needs to get on board with.

With its own library of original shows (The Hotwives of Orlando) and online exclusives (Misfits, The Only Way Is Essex), going Plus is one thing you undoubtedly need to do this fall. Here’s why:

Original Content

While Hulu Plus constantly touts its large collection of online exclusives, it’s not always clear that a number of these series are actually Hulu originals.

The streaming platform boasts a number series with serious star power. The Hotwives of Orlando — a hilarious parody of the Real Housewives franchise — stars Casey Wilson (Happy Endings) and Kristen Schaal (Bob’s Burgers) with Paul Scheer (The League) serving as executive producer. Add to that The Awesomes, an animated superhero series from the minds of Seth Meyers and Lorne Michaels, featuring voices of current and past Saturday Night Live cast members.

Following the traditional soap operas is East Los High, a daily teen high school drama that features an all Latino cast. The second season premiered in July.

Another stand out series is Deadbeat, which premiered in April of this year. The show, which tells the story of a slacker medium for hire, stars Tyler Labine, Lucy DeVito (yes, daughter to Danny), and Cat Deeley (So You Think You Can Dance).

Foreign Imports

For a long time it seemed like BBC America was the only way to catch up on your favorite UK shows. Thanks to Hulu Plus, fans can now watch old favorites in addition to new and upcoming series. All eleven seasons of The Hills-esque reality show, The Only Way Is Essex, are available for binge watching. (The 12th season is currently airing in the UK.)

Hulu also has exclusive streaming deals in the U.S. for Misfits, which stars Game of ThronesIwan Rheon, the BAFTA award-winning comedy Rev., British soap Coronation Street, Chris O’Dowd‘s Moone Boy, and the first season of the BBC Three drama Pramface.

Weekly TV Viewing

In addition to the binge-watching capabilities offered by the collection of original and exclusive content, Hulu is still one of the best places to catch up on network TV each week. Now that fall TV is returning with old favorites and buzzy new shows, the Plus allows fans to watch past seasons in addition to all the episodes of the current season all from the comforts of the couch. ABC, CBS, The CW, FOX, and all NBC all regularly update current shows. So skip those networks’ streaming pages — the content is more easily streamed on Hulu.

Now there is no excuse for falling behind on SNL or Scandal.

What Netflix Doesn’t Have — Reality

While Hulu doesn’t boast the back library of now-canceled series like Netflix does, it does make up for it with exclusive network deals. Basic cable networks, such as Bravo and VH1, have online content deals allowing fans to get caught up on their favorite reality series. Want to watch every episode of Real Housewives of…, Rock of Love, or Top Chef? Now you can thanks to the expansive collection of TV tucked into the Networks section of Hulu Plus. For VH1 fans, that also means staying current on the channel’s roster of hits, such as Candidly Nicole, Dating Naked, and Love & Hip-Hop.

Nicole Richie

The online platform is also packed with other complete (non-reality) favorites, including Comedy Central (South Park), MTV (Daria), and ABC Family (Greek). And of course, there are the plethora of films, including Hook starring Robin Williams and Joan Rivers: Don’t Start With Me.

Sure Hulu Plus requires a subscription fee but for TV junkies $8/month may not be such a bad deal.

Baby’s first fashion show!

It was a glamorous girl’s day out for Hilaria Baldwin and her blonde beautyCarmen Gabriela, on Friday, as the mother-daughter duo celebrated New York Fashion Week with front row seats to Carmen Marc Valvo‘s collection.

But sitting sidelines for the show wasn’t the only way the two showed their support. Both Baldwin’s chic black dress and her daughter’s floral-print frock — paired with a matching flower headband — were courtesy of the designer.

“My two fashionable Carmens,” the proud mama captioned a photo of the three together.

As models walked the runway, Alec Baldwin‘s baby girl showed off her excitement by clapping along. And after all that fun, Carmen couldn’t help but share about her big day.

“Emergency pit stop for a very important business call … We call this the iCarmen,” her mama joked on Instagram, posting a video of her daughter using her foot as a phone.

Mom-to-be Carrie Underwood shared a shot of her barely there baby bump via Instagram.

“Had such a great night at the ACM Honors! Now everyone can go back to making fun of me for crying during my speech,” the country superstar, 31, captioned the image.

Amid the pregnancy hormones, the singer hit the stage to receive the Gene Weed Special Achievement Award at the 8th Annual ACM Honors in Nashville, Tenn. on Tuesday (September 9).

This marks the first social media photo Carrie has shared since announcing her pregnancy on September 1.

“In honor of ‘Labor’ Day, Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier,” the Blown Away singer captioned a photo of her pooches wearing “I’m going to be a big brother” and “I’m going to be a big sister” shirts.

The Grammy Award-winner and her hockey star husband Mike Fisher, 34, expect their first child in the spring.
