Lifetime has greenlit an original movie about the women in Charles Manson’s life.
“The Mentalist” star Jeff Ward is playing Manson. The trio of women are MacKenzie Mauzy (“Into the Woods”) as Linda Kasabian, Eden Brolin (“I Dream Too Much”) as Susan Atkins and Greer Grammer (“Awkward”) as Leslie Van Houten.
The TV movie focuses primarily on Kasabian when she first meets “the family” at the Spahn Ranch commune. Manson soon draws her into criminal activities, including late-night break-ins at expensive homes. She leaves the gang only after becoming an accomplice in what Manson calls “Helter Skelter,” a drug-fueled murder spree in August 1969 that included the killing of actress »

Earlier this month, just before production began on Fox's Untitled X-Files Revival, a report claimed the second episode of this new season may be a sequel to "Home" from The X-Files Season 4, which is considered by many to be one of The X-Files's best episodes. The new episode is entitled "Home Again", and is written and directed by Glen Morgan, who co-wrote the original Home episode with James Wong. Unfortunately, Entertainment Weekly confirms that "Home Again" is not a follow-up to this beloved episode, with series creator Chris Carter explaining that there will be no rebooted monsters or story lines from the original show.
"We're not going to reboot any of the old favorites, although it was something we all thought about. These are all brand new stories. We hope to scare you in brand new ways."
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have a bunch of new photos from the upcoming return of "The X-Files" TV series, starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Check out the photos below, in addition to the magazine's cover. "The X-Files" originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine season run, the series became a massive global hit and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time, earning 16 Emmy Awards, 5 Golden Globes and a Peabody Award. New episodes of "The X-Files" will premiere on January 24th, 2016 on Fox. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
When NBC announced that they were going to release most of the first season of Aquarius online before the episodes had aired on the network, some speculated that they'd given up on the series.
Not so. Today, NBC announced that the David Duchovny series had been renewed for a second season.
Here's the press release:

Earlier this month, the first image of David Duchovny’s Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Scully in the X-Files revival landed online thanks to the show’s twitter feed. Now here come some better quality looks at the pair – plus fellow cast members Annet Mahendru and Joel McHale courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. There are also a few fresh details about the new, six-episode run bringing the conspiracy-investigating, monster-tackling duo back to our screens next year, including the fact that we reunite with Mulder when he’s in a dark place, but that Scully’s a little more settled, as usual. “I like where we find Mulder and Scully in their relationship,” Anderson tells the magazine. “I also like the area of zeitgeist that we step in to. It’s on point and raises some very interesting issues. And question marks.” According to series creator Chris Carter, back for this new limited run, »
Now that production on The X-Files revival series has been underway for the better part of a month, we've finally got a look at our beloved extra-terrestrial seeking detectives back on the job. EW has revealed images featuring stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, new characters played by Joel McHale and Annet Mehendru, as well as behind the scenes looks at the sets, scripts, and creative team. Duchovny says Mulder is in a "dark, dark place", while Scully is evidently more put together. Anderson said she likes where their relationship picks up, but she was equally interested in the pertinent political and social issues the series will explore, "I also like the area of zeitgeist that we step in to. It’s on point and raises some very interesting issues. And question marks.” [caption id="attachment_478195" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Ed Araquel/Fox[/caption] Series creator Chris Carter also talked about the issues they'll address »

"I think of it as a 13-year commercial break," said Carter. "The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories."
"We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of The X-Files – one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers...
"The 'X-Files' was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. »

We also get a look at the title page for the season premiere script, which is entitled "My Struggle", along with a behind-the-scenes shot of series creator Chris Carter in a production meeting.
As you can see in the first photo below, Mulder is looking rather disheveled, with David Duchovny revealing his character is in a "dark, dark place" when the series picks up. We have no details about how he got to this place. The last time we saw both Mulder and Scully together was in the 2008 movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe. »

NBC has somewhat surprisingly renewed its 1960s drama Aquarius, starring David Duchovny, for a second season. Like the recently cancelled Hannibal, its ratings haven’t been great (it’s been pulling about a 1.2 share, whereas Hannibal slid to a 0.5 among adults 18-49), but then again, that could be in part because of NBC’s experiment with putting the entire season online after the first episode aired on TV. (NBC adds that “Strong Digital Performance Is Key in Bringing Back Well-Reviewed Series” ... at least they're counting online views now. Allegedly). [caption id="attachment_465255" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via NBC[/caption] Despite the mediocre numbers, NBC seems willing to invest in Aquarius going forward, perhaps partially because Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony) on the show won’t go Full Manson (never go Full Manson) until Season 2, which could get more people to tune in (facts are facts!) Another major component is that, according to the NBC press release, the »

The Age of Aquarius will continue for NBC, now that the network has seen fit to renew the 1960s-set drama for a second season to air next summer.
David Duchovny stars as an honest cop in the Summer of Love, navigating a politically charged and socially transforming climate as he investigates a sinister musician named Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony). Emma Dumont, Grey Damon and Claire Holt all co-star.
Aquarius represented a daring experiment for NBC, with the entire 13-episode season becoming available online following the TV premiere. Ratings on the small screen have been modest, but NBC cites the show’s performance on digital platforms, where viewers could choose to binge-watch the season, as the driving force behind the renewal.

NBC raised eyebrows last month when it announced that it would release the David Duchovny-fronted period drama’s entire season online immediately following the airing of its premiere episode — the first broadcast series to do so. The experiment paid off, according to NBC entertainment president Jennifer Salke.
“It’s no secret that the way people watch television is evolving, »
The period drama also made broadcast history for using a modern technique when it debuted earlier this year — NBC released the entire first season on its digital platforms after the season premiere, marking the first major network to utilize the binge-watching model, launched by the likes of Netflix and Hulu. The digital release resulted in the first episode being the most-watched summer series premiere ever on NBC.com and the NBC App.
While it’s unlikely that the binge strategy will be used for season two, since they achieved their goal of generating enough buzz and viewers with the initial binge-season, it is something the brass are very proud of and will likely prompt other broadcasters to follow suit with upcoming series launches. »
