‘Homeland’ to Premiere Oct. 5 with Back-to-Back Episodes

11 August 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Showtime will unveil its new-model “Homeland” with back-to-back episodes on Oct. 5.

The fourth season of the CIA thriller amounts to a reinvention of the show now that the central storyline of the past three seasons, the saga of Nicholas Brody, came to an end in the season three finale.

Season four has been shot in South Africa and features Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison running a CIA station in a Mideast hotspot. She is presumably also a new mother, having been very pregnant with Brody’s child at the end of season three.

Showtime will air the first two episodes of season four from 9-11 p.m. The new drama “The Affair” will move into the 10 p.m. spot on Oct. 12 — a week earlier than originally planned to draft off what Showtime hopes will be strong momentum for week two of “Homeland.”

TNT Puts Gotham Moviegoers in ‘Legends’ Trailer on Bigscreen with Ncm (Exclusive)

11 August 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

TNT this weekend gave several surprised New York City moviegoers co-starring roles as “virtual extras” alongside Sean Bean in a promotional stunt for its upcoming drama series “Legends.”

The event, touted as the first campaign of its kind in U.S. cinemas, ran Aug. 8-10 at the Regal Union Square movie theater in Manhattan. Select patrons were pulled aside, and using a green screen and near real-time editing were then inserted into the “Legends” trailer, which ran in ad-network Ncm’s FirstLook preshow program in the movies they were going to see.

The promotion ran in PG-13 and R-rated movies over the weekend at the theater from about 3:30 p.m. onward. TNT and Ncm picked the Union Square theater because it’s a high-traffic location — an estimated 20,000 people saw the “virtual extras” trailers — and was showing big summer movies including “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Guardians of the Galaxy. »

Legends Can't Kill Sean Bean Again, Can It? Plus: Ali Larter's Heroes Wish

2 August 2014 6:58 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The new TNT thriller Legends stars Sean Bean as an elite FBI operative who is (perhaps too?) unparalleled in his ability to create, adopt and immerse himself in a false persona. As such, the series can’t possibly add to the actor’s renowned number of on-screen deaths… right?

Video Major Crimes: Raydor’s Son and Rusty Engage in Sibling Rivalry

Legends costars Ali Larter (Heroes), Morris Chestnut (V) and Tina Majorino (Veronica Mars) — who play Bean’s colleague, adversary and colleague — weighed in on that topic during a visit to TVLine’s Comic-Con suite, where Majorino (exaggerating for »

Press tour: 'Homeland' producers defend season 3, preview season 4

18 July 2014 2:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The criticism hurt, the lack of an Emmy nomination hurt, but we're going to come back strong and try to get back to the mountaintop." This was "Homeland" co-creator Alex Gansa, appearing with his fellow writers Alexander Cary and Meredith Stiehm at a press tour panel designed to preview the Showtime drama's fourth season (which debuts October 5), but that spent a lot of time revisiting a lot of the complaints about season 3. Gansa tried to steer into that particular skid by opening the panel with a joke about how the series will have to move on without a character whom viewers loved to hate, or hated to love — only he was referring not to Nicholas Brody, but Dana Brody. (He later said that it wasn't likely the Brody family would appear this season.) But he, Cary and Stiehm spent much of the panel politely but firmly disagreeing with various season 3 criticisms. »

Networks Books Unprecedented Amount of Scripted Series for Summer

9 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It wasn’t that long ago that the Big Four networks put out the Gone Fishin’ sign at season’s end, filling summer with reruns of their comedies and dramas.

But in the DVR era, people have largely stopped watching repeats — of both current network shows and off-net syndicated series on cable — and networks of all stripes have stepped up their output of originals to keep ratings from tumbling.

If 40 is the new 30, and orange can be the new black, why can’t summer be the new September? It certainly feels like it, because there will be a smorgasbord of scripted series rolling out the next couple of months.

A Variety analysis of summer schedules found that in the two-month period from May 20 to July 20, an unprecedented 29 scripted series are premiering across a total of 14 broadcast and cable networks — comparable to the 27 scripted series that bowed (mostly on the broadcast »

Scripted TV Competition Builds With Packed Summer Schedule

27 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Looks like the DVR won’t be getting that much-needed summer vacation.

Not every network has released their summer skeds just yet, but it’s clear that there will be an unprecedented number of scripted skeins on the broadcast networks from June through August. And of course, cable networks have long seen the warm-weather months as a time for its originals to shine.

Six Feet Under,” “Monk” and “The Closer” are examples of cable shows that thrived out of the box in part because of a dirth of competition during summer. Those bowing this summer won’t have that luxury.

TNT alone will be airing nine original dramas this summer — the most ever for any network — including new projects from Steven Bochco, Michael Bay and the producers of “Homeland.”

After some rough starts in the ratings for shows that premiered in the thick of the broadcast season, TNT has switched »

In addition to three new series, the cabler’s summer fare includes four of the 15 most popular dramas on basic cable (“Rizzoli & Isles,” “Major Crimes,” “Falling Skies” and “Perception”).

Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, said he hopes the net’s summer slate points to the quality, variety and stability of the network’s programming.

“It’s a wonderful mix of old and new partners we’re working with … people known for making quality television,” Wright told Variety. “This really helps us burnish the brand.”

The diverse summer slate underscores the evolution of that brand, which not too long ago was driven almost entirely by crime shows like “The Closer.”

“We love our crime dramas, but we’re now programming in several genres… »
