Hatch began his career on the soap opera All My Children and later joined on The Streets of San Francisco after Michael Douglas left the show. His biggest role, however, came in 1978 as ace pilot Apollo in Battlestar Galactica. The series was about the exodus of humanity after the Cylons, a race of robots, attacked humanity to near extinction, leading them to find the mythical planet Earth for refuge. It only ran for one season, but gained a large cult following after an edited cut of the pilot hit theaters and even spawned the short-lived sequel series Galactica 1980.
Unlike most actors attached to an iconic role, Hatch never got tired of being Apollo or the Galactica fandom. Throughout his career he wrote books based in the »

Before this January, I’d been to many comic cons but I’d never been on a cruise. I loved the idea of going on one, though; as well as the concept and aim of the first Fan2Sea comic con cruise: which was to give fans the best experiences of comic cons – good seats at panels, VIP parties, getting to meet the guests, getting sketches from artists, and all of that – but without the crowds and lines and hassle. In essence, the goal was for everyone’s experience to be an extra-special experience; and on top of that, to have it in a super-cool, chill venue with other fun activities in between all the fan goodness, and with opportunities to actually get out and see the sights as well.
Well: Mission. Accomplished. In a way that was even better than I’d imagined… and I have a pretty good imagination. »

Will we finally get Donnie Darko 3, a true sequel to the Jake Gyllenhaal sci-fi classic? Last year, the 2001 thriller Donnie Darko celebrated its 15th Anniversary with a 4K re-release in select U.K. theaters, although it never made it to the U.S. Now that the re-release is available on Blu-ray, writer-director Richard Kelly revealed in a new interview that he does have plans for a true follow-up that will return to this unique universe. While he doesn't offer specifics, the filmmaker explained that it will be even bigger and more ambitious than the original.
"I think there's something much bigger and more ambitious to do in that universe. It's big and expensive and I think there's time to get to that. I want to make sure we've got the budget to do it justice and not to compromise anything. Another story in this world needs resources and we need to have that in place. »

Major Crimes will continue to be TNT's longest-running drama.
It was just renewed for a sixth season by the network.
The successful series predates current network head Kevin Reilly and a time when the net focused on procedural fare.
While the focus may be changing at the network, there's no denying the focus of TNT's audience.
This past summer, Major Crimes reached an average of 10 million viewers per episode across TNT's multiple platforms and finished the third quarter ranking as one of cable's Top 10 dramas with adults 18-49.
In its first season, it ranked as cable's #1 new drama of 2012, and it has remained among the most-watched dramas on cable ever since.
Major Crimes centers on a special squad within the Lapd that deals with high-profile or particularly sensitive crimes. »

“Major Crimes” has been renewed for a sixth season at TNT, the network announced Wednesday. The renewal comes well before the show’s return for the second half of Season 5 on Feb. 22. Season 6 will consist of 13 episodes.
The series, originally a spin-off of network-maker “The Closer,” has been a bulwark for TNT, pulling in 10 million viewers a week across all platforms, according to Turner. Turner Entertainment chief creative officer Kevin Reilly has taken TNT’s creative direction away from the kind of meat-and-potatoes police procedural that marked the networks’ previous aesthetic. Yet even with series like “Rizzoli & Isles” breathing their last and new, grittier series like “Animal Kingdom” and “Claws” coming to populate the TNT schedule, it appears there’s still room for “Major Crimes.”
“Major Crimes” follows a special squad within the Lapd that deals with high-profile or particularly sensitive crimes. Led by Captain Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell), the squad includes Lieutenant Provenza (G.W. Bailey), Lieutenant »

Season-to-date, Major Crimes is averaging 3.7 million weekly viewers and a .45 demo rating, on par with its previous cycle (which aired a record 23 episodes).
Ahead of its season-five return, TNT has given an early renewal to stalwart Major Crimes.
The Turner-owned cable network has picked up the Mary McDonnell drama for a sixth season consisting of 13 episodes, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The early pickup comes as The Closer spinoff is poised to return for the second half of its fifth season with the final eight episodes airing Feb. 22. The drama, produced by Warner Bros. Television, has ranked as one of cable's most watched series since its debut in 2012. This past summer, the first half of season five drew an »
