Take one last ride down the storied California coast when the sultry Showtime original comedy series Californication: The Final Season arrives on DVD August 5 from Showtime Networks, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution. David Duchovny, in his Golden Globe Award-winning performance, returns as fan-favorite lothario novelist Hank Moody in the final 12 episodes of the seventh season, arriving five weeks after the critically-acclaimed show's broadcast finale on June 29.
When the fast-living Hank left the literary haunts of New York for the pleasure-seeking splendors of La, he thought he'd have fame, fortune and the love of a good woman. Now his personal life is in shambles, his career is on the brink of self-destruction and he still just can't stop yielding to every temptation. The final season of Californication finds the incomparable Hank in the writer's room, as his never-released film Santa Monica Cop now becomes a television series of the same name. »
We already established that Neko Case and Kelly Hogan's comedy song "These Aren't the Droids" is the best thing ever. Now get ready for the next best thing ever, from the same compilation album. The unlikely combo of Andy Richter with Ashanti, Baron Vaughn, Alonzo Bodden and Loaded Lux erupts all over "Escape from New York," from benefit album "2776." It's not monsters, earthquakes, terrorists or climate that will get the U.S.'s largest city down: this skyscraper-sized hip-hop track has news for you. "Escape from New York," "These Aren't the Droids" and more appears on satire comedy and music album "2776," with sales going toward Onekid Oneworld, in "their efforts to promote education in Kenya and El Salvador."

Plenty of news from Syfy today. The most exciting bit is that Tricia Helfer is returning to the channel, joining the mini-series Ascension, according to EW. Ascension follows a secret U.S. mission where hundreds were sent to settle in a new world. However, 50 years into the journey, a murder has everyone questioning their mission. Helfer’s character is described as “beautiful, manipulative and dangerous”– because Helfer portrays those qualities so well.
The channel is also developing a series with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, as reported by TheWrap. Clone is based on a graphic novel about a man who finds out that there are clones of him when one burglarizes his home. If they can find a male actor as talented as Tatiana Maslany, we just might be willing to overlook the inevitable Orphan Black comparisons.
Syfy is also adapting Ronin… because someone doesn’t realize there »
