USA Greenlights First Half-Hour Pilots

13 September 2011 10:00 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Fifteen months after it signaled a move into half-hour comedy development with its first half-hour script buy under the current regime, top-rated cable network USA has greenlighted its first two half-hour comedy pilots in more than a decade: an untitled Douglas McGrath project (formerly On We Go), executive produced by Nathan Lane who is negotiations to star, and Michael Feldman’s Paging Dr. Freed. “The pickup of these half-hour comedy pilots underscores our commitment to broadening the appeal of USA’s entertainment brand,” said the network’s co-presidents Jeff Wachtel and Chris McCumber. The orders put USA well on track to hit its goal of having half-hour series on the air by the fall 2013 launch of the network’s high-profile off-network acquisition, ABC hit Modern Family. The network has more half-hour scripts in development. Of the 12 series projects on its development slate announced at the USA upfront in May, five were half-hour. »

Doctor Who complete reviews: The Stolen Earth

7 September 2011 2:58 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The critics can advise you on what's good and what's bad in all aspects of life – whether it's TV, music, films or food – but at the end of the day, it's the public view that counts. A TV critic can pick apart a really bad programme until the cows come home, but if the public likes it, who cares? How else could you explain the long-running My Family – Aka, the most depressing, mean-spirited excuse for a comedy in the history of telly – a programme that seems to be derided by every critic under the sun, and yet seems to have lasted for decades. See? If the public likes something, then a critic's job sometimes feels a bit pointless.

Still, as I weep into my computer keyboard, at least I can console myself with the fact that My Family's limping to its well deserved end this year. As for Doctor Who, »

Director: Joe Johnston

Cast: Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Tommy Lee Jones, Hugo Weaving, Sebastian Stan

Running Time: 125mins

Certificate: 12A


Captain America: The First Avenger” will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to wage war on the evil Hydra organization, led by the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving.)

Finally one of the first and foremost Marvel Superheroes has been successfully translated to the big screen. Timely Comics’, later re-christened Marvel Comics, ‘First Avenger’ has had a number of adaptations over the years with various radio serials, TV shows, cartoons and an ill-fated, poorly financed, 1990′s feature film starring Matt Slinger as the title character.
