USA Network Bumps Shooter TV Show All The Way To Fall After Baton Rouge Shootings

18 July 2016 1:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Initially postponed one week in light of the Dallas sniper attack – from July 19 to July 26 – USA Network has now opted to push Shooter all the way to fall, claiming it is simply “not the right time” for the spinoff series.

USA made the decision soon after the fatal shooting of three police officers in Baton Rogue this past weekend, with an official statement revealing that, “after further consideration, USA Network, Paramount TV and Universal Cable Productions have decided to move the premiere of Shooter to the fall.” No premiere date was disclosed at the time of writing.

Thrusting Ryan Phillippe into the role of ex-Marine Bob Lee Swagger, Shooter chronicles his journey out of a self-imposed exile “by his former commanding officer and now top Secret Service agent Isaac Johnson (Omar Epps),” with the nation gripped by an assassination threat against the President of the United States.

Stuntman Injured on Set of Ryan Phillippe’s USA Series ‘Shooter’

6 July 2016 3:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A stuntman was hospitalized Wednesday after being pinned by an SUV and sustaining severe injuries on the set of new USA Network series “Shooter,” authorities confirmed to Variety.

According to TMZ, which first broke the news, the production was shooting a scene in which actor Tom Sizemore was supposed to jump into a Cadillac SUV and remain seated until the scene ended. Sizemore, however, reportedly put the vehicle into reverse and hit the gas, pinning the stuntman.

It’s unclear what injuries the stuntman sustained, or where his condition stands, but he was airlifted to a nearby hospital after the car was lifted off of him with the help of equipment. “Shooter” was filming at the Agua Dulce Airport in Santa Clarita, Calif., at the time, per the report.

USA did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for comment. It’s currently unknown if the incident will affect production. Cal »

First Trailer And Poster For Almost Christmas Tease Seasonal Shenanigans

15 June 2016 1:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hollywood’s knack for ensemble festive comedies will continue unabated this year in the form of Almost Christmas, an ensemble dramedy that revolves around, you guessed it, a bickering family that is forced to set aside old differences while sharing the same roof during the holiday period.

No, it’s not the Griswolds; for David E. Talbert’s (Baggage Claim) festive feature will center on Danny Glover’s beloved patriarch “who asks his family for one gift this holiday season: to get along. If they can honor that wish and spend five days under the same roof without killing one another, it will be a Christmas miracle.”

Written and directed by Talbert, along with the producing support of Ride Along‘s Will Packer, Almost Christmas isn’t likely to herald any comedic revolutions anytime soon, but as a star-studded crowd-pleaser, it ought to do just fine come November. It features a cast led by Kimberly Elise, Danny Glover, John Michael Higgins, Romany Malco, Mo’Nique, Jb Smoove, Gabrielle Union, Omar Epps, Nicole Ari Parker, Jessie T. Usher and DC Young Fly.

Taking full advantage of the holiday release window, Almost Christmas will revel in seasonal shenanigans when David E. Talbert’s comedy opens on November 11. In the meantime, a new poster introduces that all-star cast, who simply can’t contain their excitement to kick off the festive celebrations.
