Next year's Atx Television Festival will feature two high-profile reunions: The cast of the Gilmore Girls and the Dawson’s Creek writers' room. Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman Palladino and stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel will be on hand for a panel honoring the 15th anniversary of the show’s debut. "So, after years of peace and quiet, these lunatics have chosen to get the chattiest chicks in the world back under one roof? Really? Okay. You asked for it," Palladino said in a statement.

TNT Cancels ‘Franklin and Bash’

11 November 2014 12:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

TNT has closed the book on “Franklin and Bash” after four seasons.

The Sony Pictures TV legal dramedy wrapped its most recent season last month. Breckin Meyer and Mark-Paul Gosselaar played hard-charging lawyers who wound up at a white-shoe law firm.

The writing was on the wall for the series in season four as it opened to a modest 1.2 million viewers and slid thereafter to end its 10-episode season with about 975,000 viewers. The show’s 18-49 demo numbers were also weak, failing to rise about a .5 in live-plus-same day numbers.

“Franklin and Bash” is also likely to be an example of the lighter, blue-sky shows that TNT is looking to move away from under the new regime led by Kevin Reilly, the Fox and NBC vet who was tapped last week as prexy of TNT and TBS.

Bill Chais and Kevin Falls created “Franklin and Bash” and exec produced with Jamie Tarses and Jack Clements. »

Stars: Breckin Meyer, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Reed Diamond, Dana Davis, Kumail Nanjiani, Malcolm McDowell, Heather Locklear | Created by Bill Chais, Kevin Falls

Bill Chais and Kevin Falls, who both previously worked together as writers on the short-lived Emmy-nominated James Woods legal drama Shark, teamed up in 2011 for an all-new legal drama, Franklin & Bash, which follows lawyers and lifelong friends Jared Franklin and Peter Bash, a pair of unconventional lawyers whose M.O. typically involves them doing everything a lawyer shouldn’t (drinking in court, hitting on clients) in order to win their cases. Once such case sees the duo score legal win against the large and prestigious law firm Infield Daniels, which brings them to the attention of Stanton Infield, one of the said firm’s major partners, who recruits the pair to work for the very firm they beat in court – bringing both their legal skills and their sense of »

'The West Wing' oral history: 9 things you didn't know or forgot

13 May 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Since Frank Underwood became president on Netflix’s House of Cards, I’ve had this geek fantasy of him debating Josiah Bartlet, Martin Sheen’s idealistic and professorial president from The West Wing. Bartlet’s Washington, D.C., was the proverbial shining city on a hill, a place where intelligent, well-intentioned people gravitated to do the peoples’ business. Underwood’s capital is the nasty underbelly of a trough coated by man’s craven pursuit of power for power’s sake. It’s practically Kennedy’s Camelot versus Nixononian realpolitik. To paraphrase Anthony HopkinsNixon in Oliver Stone’s 1995 movie, “When look at The West Wing, »
