Spike TV said it would partner with producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Warner Horizon Television to develop the drama series “Harvest,” the latest effort by the Viacom-owned outlet to pursue original scripted fare.

Here's our tribute to one of the best action movies ever made: a story of Nicolas Cage, a plane and a toy bunny...
"Break out the fine china, chill the lemonade, tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree. Cos this boy's coming home to his ladies. Coming home forever."
Action cinema changed in 1999. The release of The Matrix unleashed a torrent of imitators, but also altered fundamentally the editing of movies in the genre. This came with a price. Action sequences became harder to follow. Character was relegated. The old style idea of pitting a movie star against some peril in extraordinary circumstances was seemingly less tempting. The Matrix had started something.
Well, that, or everyone just watched Con Air, and figured they couldn't top it. Because in truth, how could they? One of the most quotable, enjoyable and wildly entertaining blockbusters of the 1990s, I can't think »
The road to the screen for Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay's drug-trade drama is taking a new turn. I have learned that the project, which was picked up to pilot by TNT last fall, will be redeveloped by the cable network. While the current pilot is not going forward, I hear TNT brass liked the setting — the wild and unpredictable world of the Florida drug trade in the 1970s — and want to take another stab at it. Michelle Ashford, who wrote the pilot script before her… »
According to THR, actress Lesley-Ann Brandt (who played Copperhead on Gotham) will replace Lina Esco as Maze on Fox's Lucifer pilot. This character was first introduced in the pages of Neil Gaiman's Sandman as Lucifer's right hand woman, who eventually follows him to Earth. She's described as "a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman" on the show. The pilot will be directed by Len Wiseman (the Total Recall remake, Underworld), who will also executive produce along with Tom Kapinos, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. The original logline for the show was pretty similar to the comic series, and had Lucifer growing tired with his infernal responsibilities and relocating to La where he opened an exclusive piano bar called Lux. Now it seems it's "undergone an evolution toward a police procedural", with the character getting his kicks helping the Lapd punish criminals. Tom Ellis will »

“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” is at the top of the world.
The long-running CBS crime drama broke the Guinness World Record for the largest television drama simulcast of all time, airing in 171 countries on March 4, dubbed “World CSI Day.” The net announced the achievement Tuesday.
The particular episode that broke the world record, titled “Kitty,” originally aired in the States on April 30, 2014, and acted as the planted spinoff for “CSI: Cyber,” which premiered as its own standalone series this month.

“World CSI Day” celebrated 15 years of the “CSI” franchise and the U. »

As Fox's Lucifer adaptation drifts further and further away from its source material, Lauren German (Hostel: Part 2, The Divide) has joined the cast as Chloe Dancer. Deadline describe the character as an "Lapd homicide detective who finds herself both repulsed and fascinated by Lucifer. As they work together to solve a murder, Lucifer is struck by Chloe’s inherent goodness. Used to dealing with the absolute worst of humanity, Lucifer begins to wonder if there’s hope yet."
