Last season, all of the new CBS dramas were cancelled. Will Stalker face a similar fate or will it be renewed? Cancelled or season two? Stay tuned.
A cop thriller, Stalker follows the work of the Lapd's Threat Assessment Unit, a team that investigates incidents of stalking. The TV show stars Dylan McDermott, Maggie Q, Victor Rasuk, and Mariana Klaveno.

It looks like costars Dylan McDermott and Maggie Q are more than just workmates!

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Harry Potter raps! Yes. Stop everything and watch Daniel Radcliffe rap Blackalicious' "Alphabet Aerobics" on Tuesday night's "Tonight Show." It's perfect. DanRad is always the best talk show guest. He has an American accent in "Horns" and said WWF wrestlers helped him perfect the accent. He said The Rock was always his favorite and his not-so-secret desire is to film a buddy cop movie with him. Dan also tried to give Jimmy some advice on doing accents; Jimmy's Cockney accent is horrible.

Did a new romance blossom on the set of Stalker? It sure looks like it! A source tells E! News that Dylan McDermott and co-star Maggie Q have become involved off-screen and are currently dating. The crime-fighting pair first sparked speculation that there was something romantic going on after they were spotted getting close during a casual shopping trip in Brentwood, Calif., last month. (We see where your hand is at, Maggie!) E! News has reached out to both camps for comment. Neither of the stars have publicly acknowledged their off-camera relationship on social media or otherwise. All of their posts have instead been focused on promoting their new series. "I've had this idea in »
Are Dylan McDermott and Maggie Q are partnering up for more than just crime-fighting? A show insider tells People that the former American Horror Story star, 53, is now romantically involved with the Hawaii-born Nikita actress, 35 - who stars with McDermott on CBS's new crime drama Stalker. The onscreen detectives sparked relationship rumors last month when they were spotted getting cozy while shopping in Brentwood. McDermott ended his 14-year marriage to actress Shiva Rose in 2009. They have two daughters together: Colette, 17, and Charlotte, 9. Reps for McDermott and Maggie Q could not be reached. »

The first casualty of the fall television season came last week when ABC axed low-rated freshman comedy Manhattan Love Story, but today finds the small screen world in better spirits. CBS, currently the top-rated major cable network, has committed to all four of its new drama series, picking up back-nine orders for NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion, Madam Secretary and Stalker.
That brings each show to a full 22 episode first season. Out of the series, spinoff NCIS: New Orleans and genius-crisis-solvers drama Scorpion rank as the first and second most-watched new broadcast dramas of the fall season, making their increased episode orders absolute no-brainers.
NCIS: New Orleans, which is led by Scott Bakula and follows behind only NCIS (which it leads out on Tuesdays) in terms of ratings, has been raking in a jaw-dropping 18.6 million viewers, as well as a 2.8 in the key 18-to-49 demographic. The spinoff has been met with »

Directed by: Gabe Ibáñez
Following up 2009’s Hierro, Gabe Ibáñez goes from domestic to sci-fi mystery with Automata. Set in 2044 Ad, when solar storms turn Earth into a radio desert and reduces the human population, robots have become a staple for survival. A corporation called Roc, in particular, creates a line of robots called the Automata Pilgrim 7000s to assist humans in their quest for living, building the walls needed to protect mankind. Security protocols have been programmed to prevent robots from harming any form of life, and from altering themselves altogether. In this dark and dystopian future, plucked from a chapter of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner or Danny Cannon’s Judge Dredd, the audience follows Roc insurance investigator Jacq Vaucan (Antonio Banderas). Burnt out and pessimistic, »

Can we all agree this ever growing science-fiction trope of technology evolving beyond human thought into other realms of understanding is a bit played out at this pointc We have seen it done well in Spike Jonze's Her to poorly in Wally Pfister's Transcendence, and those are just from the past twelve months (and are not the only two to grapple with this issue). From Blade Runner to I, Robot, we have seen just about every way to tell this type of story, and until we find a new way, there should be a moratorium put on it, which brings me to the subject of this review: Aut?mata. This pushes itself as a thinking man's thriller, and it is neither thought provoking or thrilling. It recycles the same points all of its predecessors bring up while lulling you to sleep. The film takes place in 2044 A.C. »

In Gabe Ibáñez's sci-fi thriller "Automata," a solar flare has zapped a big chunk of humanity, and what's left is pretty dismal. The 22 million people left on earth use robots for practically everything, which means the Roc robotics corporation is large and in charge. Antonio Banderas stars as Jacq Vaucan, an Roc employee who investigates claims against the 'bots and whether or not Roc is at fault when one of their products goes haywire. (Hint: It's usually your fault, you silly human.)
Vaucan's newest assignment is to investigate a robot that was supposedly fixing itself, which, in this world, is against the second law of robotics. Unfortunately, the robot was shot by a crazy cop played by Dylan McDermott, so all Jacq's got to go on is a handful of robot parts. In this exclusive clip, Vaucan brings his findings to a scientist and robotics expert played by Melanie Griffith, »

Automata begins with foreshadowing text:
Millions of robots witness the decay of the human civilization.
Millions of robots ruled by two security protocols:
First protocol: prevents the robot from harming any form of
Second protocol: prevents the robot from altering itself or other robots.
This thought provoking science-fiction film tells the story of an insurance agent of Roc robotics corporation who routinely investigates the case of manipulating a robot. What he discovers will have profound consequences for the future of humanity.

For fans of the genre, I can’t emphasize enough how much you need to see this stunning film.
For Ibáñez, his own fascination about the theory of technological singularity, »

Robots. Ever since the dawn of science-fiction arose from the industrial revolution, it seemed inevitable that technology would play a major role in the future evolution of mankind. Or, perhaps, as some would suggest, skip evolution all together as human beings become extinct and the fruits of our scientific prowess take over as the top of the Earthly food chain. Wherever we fall on that debate, the ultimate question remains… what will the continued advancement of technology look like and how would humanity fit into the long-term picture?
Writer and director Gabe Ibáñez returns five years after revealing his first feature film Hierro (2009) with AUTÓMATA. He dips his quill into the rich ink pot that is science-fiction to tackle the difference between man and machine, or the similarities that emerge beneath the blinding veil of fear and hatred. This may sound all too dramatic, but at its core, AUTÓMATA is »

As we tightly clench our admission tickets in anticipation for tonight’s Freak Show, we can’t help but be excited about seeing our favorite American Horror Story players reincarnated as their scariest characters yet. One aspect of Ahs that we can count on to not be scary is the acting, which is always, hands-down, some of the most unmatched on network television.
Show veterans like Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson will bring their talents to the tent, as well as Ahs: Coven‘s stars Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates. While the show’s newest additions have certainly been crucial, we would love to see season 1 actors like Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, and Zachary Quinto make appearances at Jupiter, Florida’s Freak Show this season — they were that good. With the show’s shifting plots and story arcs, actors can play entirely different characters from season to season. »

American Horror Show returns with a visually gorgeous episode that proves there's no other show like it on television...

4.1 Monsters Among Us
Tod Browning's 1932 horror film Freaks is a bonafide classic thanks in no small part to Browning's brilliant use of “us versus them.” On one side, you have the outwardly terrifying freaks and on the other side the so-called “normal” folks as represented by Cleopatra and Hercules. The freaks look scary, but deep down inside, they're the good people. They accept Cleopatra because Hans loves her, but when Cleopatra and Hercules betray the trust of the sideshow folks, the freaks protect their own in one of the most terrifying sequences in movie history. Terrifying yes, but also well-deserved in the end, as Cleopatra and Hercules prove themselves to be despicable.
Freaks is a film existing in a genre of one. If you've seen it, »

I, Robot: Ibanez Saddles Asimov for Arresting A.I. Concoction
Spanish director Gabe Ibanez makes an impressive sci-fi entry with his sophomore feature, Automata, an exploration of ethical treatment of more technologically advanced creations that supersede our own intelligence. Meanwhile, the end of mankind is nigh. Though it’s sure to be compared to any number of classic sci-fi efforts, most notably Isaac Asimov’s famed robot in revolt chronicle I, Robot, which received the Hollywood gloss treatment a decade ago with Alex Proyas at the helm, Ibanez strikes an interesting comparison to another recent indie sci-fi release, James Caradog’s The Machine, an exploration of the inevitable outcome of self-awareness in creatures artificial or otherwise. In a sea of recycled cinematic endeavors, Ibanez stands out as an exciting new voice in the genre with this emotionally resonant and thematically rich film.
