It's good to see you, Ephram Brown! Gregory Smith and other stars of Everwood reunited after eight years at the Atx Television Festival in Austin, Tex., on Saturday, June 7. The cast spent four years filming the fan-favorite series in Utah that centered on widowed Dr. Andy Brown (Treat Williams) moving his son Ephram (Smith) and daughter Delia (Vivien Cardone) to Everwood, Colorado. The coming-of-age WB series ran from 2002 to 2006, and from the reactions of the former costars this weekend, it appeared as [...] »
The Atx Television Festival played host to an “Everwood” reunion on June 7, gathering creator Greg Berlanti, producer Jordan Levin, writer-producers David Hudgins and Rina Mimoun, composer Blake Neely and cast members Gregory Smith, Stephanie Niznik, Tom Amandes, Vivien Cardone, Sarah Drew, Debra Mooney, John Beasley and Brenda Strong for a nostalgic Q&A. Fellow stars Emily VanCamp, Chris Pratt and Treat Williams were unable to make the panel, hosted at Austin’s State Theater, but VanCamp and Williams recorded video messages, while Pratt called in during the panel via FaceTime to thank fans for their support of the WB drama.
Although “Everwood” went off the air in 2006, the show was clearly still fresh in the minds of the cast and the assembled fans, and many tears were shed both on stage and in the audience as the actors recalled the four years they spent in Utah filming the series.

Perhaps apropos for the genre, Showtime has been sneaking out the first few episodes of its new sexy-time monster show Penny Dreadful under the cover of night: the premiere was posted on YouTube weeks before it aired this past Sunday, and the show’s second ep (“Seance”) – which airs this coming Sunday – is already available On Demand. Maybe Showtime is dipping a bloody toe into the bingewatching waters popularized by Netflix and Hulu’s all-at-once release model. Maybe they’re trying to minimize conflict with the already-packed Sunday night television lineup. Or maybe the people behind the show are as insane as the show itself.
In any case, the point I want to make is this: Penny Dreadful is nuttier than a fruitcake and twice as tasty.
Let’s tackle the first episode first (if you haven’t watched it yet and care to, it’s available in its entirety »

Two small-town murders, connected yet separated by a quarter of a century, will bring Treat Williams to CSI: Crime Scene Investigation for a guest stint on Wednesday's season finale, "Dead in His Tracks." (10/9c on CBS). The former Everwood star plays security guard Sam Bishop, who was an investigator on the first murder back in 1989 but retired from cop work in frustration when he couldn't solve the case. Now Bishop has reappeared and D.B. Russell (Ted Danson) is leery of him — but suspicion soon turns to awe.
"It turns out Bishop was a man way ahead of his time — a proto-csi," says Andrew Dettmann, who wrote the episode. "So much of our modern CSI work uses technology that wasn't available in Bishop's day, yet he was using his own inventions to solve crime — like a homemade recipe for detecting gunshot residue and a jerry-rigged camera and weather balloon that did »

In the wake of its success with The Blacklist this season, NBC has given series orders to a trio of intrigue-heavy political-tinged dramas that bring Katherine Heigl, Anna Friel, and Hope Davis into prime-time.
First up is Allegiance, a show that will remind some of FX’s The Americans, except it’s set in present day. The show stars Scott Cohen (Necessary Roughness) and Davis (The Newsroom) as deactivated covert Russian spies living in America (full descriptions below).
Then there is State of Affairs, which returns former Grey’s Anatomy star Heigl to series TV. This one is about a »

Not content to let Fox hog the pre-upfronts series order merry-go-round, NBC started its 2013-2014 series pickups on Tuesday (May 6) afternoon. Thus far, NBC has given series orders to the comedy "Marry Me" and the dramas "Odyssey," "Allegiance" and "State of Affairs," starring Katherine Heigl. "Marry Me" comes from "Happy Endings" veteran David Caspe and was directed by Seth Gordon ("The Goldbergs"). It comes from Sony Pictures Television. Casey Wilson and Ken Marino topline "Marry Me" as a couple who have been together for six years. After a botched attempt at a wedding proposal, they decide to hold off until they can get it right. Hilarity may ensue. "Marry Me" also stars Sarah Wright, John Gemberling, Tymberlee Hill and Tim Meadows. "Allegiance" was created and directed by George Nolfi ("The Adjustment Bureau"), who will executive produce along with Avi Nir (“Homeland”), Ron Leshem, Amit Cohen, Yona Wisenthal and Giyora Yahalom. »

Title: In the Blood Director: John Stockwell Starring: Gina Carano, Cam Gigandet, Treat Williams, Danny Trejo, Luiz Guzman, Amaury Nolasco, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Stephen Lang If we’re keeping tabs on the evolving filmography of ex-mixed martial arts fighter and future “The Expendabelles” centerpiece Gina Carano, “In the Blood,” from director John Stockwell, slots considerably below “Haywire,” her at once lithe and bruising collaboration with Stephen Soderbergh. And yet there’s still a certain ramshackle appeal to the film, a starchy, “Taken”-meets-”Turistas” revenge picture which could just as easily be titled “Woman on Fire.” “In the Blood” centers around Ava (Carano) and Derek Grant (Cam Gigandet), a newly married couple who head to the Caribbean [ Read More ]

With the endless barrage of action films fighting for our attention these days, it's rare to find one anchored by a woman. It's even more rare to find a protag who continually ignores consequences in her search for vengeance, but real life Mixed Martial Arts champion Gina Carano is just that kind of leading lady. Whether it's duking it out with underworld goons or raining down a world of pain on those who threaten her family -- this is one violent femme on a mission. Recovering drug addict Ava (Carano) escaped her troubled youth and married the man of her dreams (Cam Gigandet). They met in Narcotics Anonymous and have been each other’s backbone during their recovery, and now they’ve fallen deeply in love. While his father (Treat Williams) assumes Ava is using Cam for all his money, Gigandet’s character marries her anyway and the two newlyweds »

Pulses are likely to remain level during “In the Blood,” a serviceable vehicle for Mma champ Gina Carano (“Haywire”). In a plot that variously recalls “True Lies,” “The Long Kiss Goodnight” and “Kill Bill,” Carano plays a new bride looking forward to a tranquil domestic life who’s forced to deploy her secret, all-purpose beatdown skills after her husband disappears. Given the limited release (the film is opening simultaneously on VOD), B.O. potency will depend on getting the word out to Carano’s fans, who may already be used to watching her on pay-per-view.
Perhaps inadvertently, the kidnapped-vacationers plot revisits territory director John Stockwell explored in 2006′s organ-trafficking thriller “Turistas,” down to a subplot involving a nonconsensual transfusion. A prologue sets the stage on the mean streets of Bridgeport, Conn., in 2002, when Ava (played as a teenager by Paloma Olympia Louvat) witnesses and avenges the murder of her self-styled »

Survivors have scars. Losers have funerals. That is an example of the sage advice that Ava's father, an outlaw in his own right -- played with the neck straining vigor that only Stephen Lang can deliver -- gave her as he raised her to be a gal who takes crap from no one. In The Blood catches up with Ava 12 years after her father's murder. She is marrying Derek, whom she met at a support group for substance abusers. Though Derek's father (Treat Williams) has concerns that Ava is marrying Derek for his money, Derek loves her and nothing his father says or does can change that. Their honeymoon is going great, and then they meet one of the locals, Manny, who takes them out for...
