A month ahead of its series premiere, Cinemax has seen fit to renew its period medical drama The Knick, from “retired” filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, for a second season of 10 episodes. Excitingly, Soderbergh, who executive-produced and directed all 10 episodes of the first season, will be returning to helm the entire second season as well. News of the pick-up comes just days after Soderbergh revealed that he was planning a second season, so Cinemax likely jumped at the chance to keep him around.
Set in downtown New York at the turn of the twentieth century, The Knick focuses on the doctors, nurses and staff of Knickerbocker Hospital as they push the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics.

Cinemax has released 11 new posters for Stephen Soderbergh's amazing-looking series The Knick. Ten of them are character posters, and they are meant to remind us that things aren't how they used to be.
The 10-episode series is set in downtown New York in 1900, and the story centers "on Knickerbocker Hospital and the groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff, who push the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics."
The series is sure to be absolutely fascinating. It stars André Holland, Eve Hewson, Juliet Rylance, Jeremy Bobb, Michael Angarano, Chris Sullivan, Cara Seymour, Eric Johnson, David Fierro, Maya Kazan, Leon Addison Brown, and Matt Frewer. The Knick premieres Friday, August 8th at 10pm/9c.

“Game of Thrones” may be over for the season, but the summer will have no shortage of bloody scripted TV. The Steven Soderbergh-directed Cinemax drama “The Knick,” for which the trailer dropped Tuesday, is one such show that will contribute to the trend.
Clive Owen stars as Dr. John W. Thackery in the show that follows the doctors, nurses and staff of the Knickerbocker Hospital in downtown New York in 1900 as they push the boundaries of medicine. However, what was then modern medicine is a lot different than what we know today — the morality rates are higher, and there seems to be a lot more blood.
“With every blow I mend, every extra year I give to a patient, I know that at the very least, something has been won,” Owen’s voiceover says in the trailer.
With a similar dark tone to Showtime’s new “Penny Dreadful,” the »

The first episode arrives on August 8, check out the trailer below. Don't be surprised, but this one looks rather dark and disturbing. sb id="948437" height="360" width="640" »

If the words "Clive Owen directed by Steven Soderbergh" weren't enough to get you excited about the upcoming Cinemax series "The Knick," here's the first trailer, which features Owen praising "modern" medicine (the show is set 114 years in the past) while chaos swirls around him. Moving at a steady but intense pace, the trailer doesn't feature much of the cast (which includes André Holland, Eve Hewson, Juliet Rylance, Michael Angarano, Maya Kazan and Matt Frewer) but does promise horse-drawn carriages and old-timey surgery. Even from this first glimpse, "The Knick" looks like nothing currently on the airwaves, which is always a good thing -- but hopefully, you're not too squeamish. Watch the trailer below -- the series premieres August 8th at 10pm.

If your husband/clueless monitor accidentally murdered the director of the scientific organization that helped clone you and your infinite amount of sisters, what would you do? Luckily if you're Orphan Black's bottle-hiding soccer mom, Alison, (Tatiana Maslany) you'd know exactly what to do. (And you'd probably have enough time to scrapbook about it at the end of the day!) At the end of last Saturday's episode, members of the Clone Club were blown away (literally) when Donnie (Kristian Bruun) angrily confronted Dr. Leekie (Matt Frewer) about his in-the-dark monitor duties, when all of the sudden, he shot him. We repeat: Donnie. Shot. Dr. Leekie. And now, due to the fact we're utterly »
[Spoiler Alert: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s episode of Orphan Black.]
Season 2 of Orphan Black claimed a major victim tonight when Dr. Aldous Leekie met his untimely demise by the most unlikeliest hand of all. After losing a Dyad power struggle with proclone Rachel, Leekie fled the institute, only to be stopped by a distraught Donnie. Donnie was so upset about his wife’s…ahem…”probing” that he quit emphatically. Only one problem: When he quit, he also accidentally discharged the handgun he was holding, which splattered the doctor’s brains all over the car windows. In our weekly post-episode Q&A, co-creator John Fawcett explains the decision to kill Leekie »

In the 2012-2013 television season, a little-buzzed-about show made its series premiere on BBC America, on the heels of science fiction juggernaut Doctor Who. That show was Orphan Black, and over the course of its first ten episodes, it firmly formed its own identity, emerging from the shadows of all the other series in its genre. The show’s second season has further solidified its status as an underrated gem, both critically and commercially, as it has used strong performances and an attention to detail to stake its place amongst the top tier of television.
The writing and characterisation are particularly strong aspects of the show. While Tatiana Maslany’s seemingly effortless multiple performances have been a large part of making each of her characters unique, the show has also done its fair share in giving every clone a distinct identity.

Sarah and Helena joined forces and decided to go after the Swan Man in an effort to stop Rachel in Orphan Black’s “Ipsa Scientia Potestas Est.”
Rachel Enlists Paul To Be Her New Monitor
Rachel Duncan (Tatiana Maslany) returned home from her trip to Taiwan to a bloody apartment: Daniel, her monitor, is dead. Dr. Leekie (Matt Frewer) blames Rachel for Daniel’s (Matthew Bennett) death, saying her aggressive ways caused Daniel’s murder, but Rachel isn’t backing down. To replace Daniel, Rachel called Paul (Dylan Bruce), who was with her in Taiwan, and gave him the “promotion.”
Aldous reveals to Rachel that he may have found a stem cell treatment for Cosima (Maslany), but Rachel is ruthless. She instructs Leekie not to treat Cosima, to make her suffer until Sarah (Maslany) surrenders. Rachel’s control over Aldous baffles Paul, so Rachel clears up their relationship. Aldous took »
Transcendence was so bad it actually made me miss this movie. Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace (1996) Director: Sam Firstenberg Stars: Matt Frewer, Austin O'Brien, Patrick Bergin Former gardener-turned-cyber deity Jobe is back once again to prove that Hollywood has no idea how computers work. I would like to say that Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace (or Lawnmower Man 2: Jobe's War, depending on who you ask) is simply a case of a technology-driven film feeling »

What The Hell?!?!? That may have been your reaction upon watching Orphan Black’s season 2 premiere. So allow me to issue the standard Spoiler Alert: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s Orphan Black season premiere.
Helena is not dead. Repeat: Helena is not dead. And it turns out that was the master plan all along. Orphan Black creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett explain why they insisted on lying through their teeth when they told anyone who asked that the Ukranian clone/clone killer was indeed a goner after being shot by her twin sister Sarah in last season’s finale. »

Noah Wyle to Executive-Produce and Reprise Recurring Role from The Librarian Movie Trilogy
TNT is returning to »
TNT has given the greenlight to a 10-episode drama series based on its TV movie franchise “The Librarian,” which starred Noah Wyle as the titular librarian tasked with protecting a mysterious collection of ancient artifacts.
Rebecca Romijn will star in this version, which has the subtle title change to “The Librarians.” Wyle will reprise his role from the movie series. The cast also includes Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin, who appeared in the original series, as well as John Larroquette, Christian Kane, Lindy Booth and Matt Frewer.
“‘The Librarian’ movies have been a huge success for TNT, and we jumped at the opportunity to build a series around the incredible world Dean Devlin and his creative partners created,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner »

TNT has greenlit 10 episodes for a series based on The Librarians franchise, slated to air in late 2014. The TV movies told the story of a group of extra special librarians who live beneath the Metropolitan Public Library in New York and safeguard mystical relics from forces of evil by slapping them with outrageous overdue fees. The plot is a messy stew of Indiana Jones, National Treasure, and Hell Boy …but the product is less than the sum of its parts.

With a break-out hit in "Orphan Black," co-creator Graeme Manson could be forgiven a smug attitude about creating such a smart, fast-paced series (full disclosure: I'm a fan), but no reason -- the friendly, easy going writer-producer still seems a little stunned by the show's success. When I got a chance to talk to Manson, he enjoyed talking about all things "Orphan Black," including the science and politics driving the plot, challenges facing our favorite characters in season two, some possible plans for an origin story (!), and he even gave a few hints of his master plan for the series. This is a long interview, but if you're a fan you'll want to read it through to the end, promise. HitFix: I still remember worrying that "Orphan Black" was going to be like a '70s scifi movie. Manson: No, no, not a room full of stasis tubes! HitFix: Obviously, »

With all producing deals closed and a cast in place, TNT has given the green light to The Librarians, a 10-episode series follow-up to the network’s hit movie trilogy The Librarian, for a premiere in late 2014. The series will have a female lead played by Rebecca Romijn, returning to TNT where she played one of the leads in King & Maxwell. Noah Wyle, who toplined the movies, is executive producing and reprising his role in a recurring capacity because he is the star of another TNT series, Falling Skies.

Joining Wyle from the movies are Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin, who also will reprise their roles, with Matt Frewer (TNT’s Falling Skies) also set to recur.
