Producer-Director Brooke Kennedy on Challenges of Moving From ‘The Good Wife’ to ‘The Good Fight’

17 February 2017 9:51 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Brooke Kennedy has produced hundreds of hours of television, much of it in New York City. But of all her experiences in the trenches, nothing quite compares to directing the first episode of “The Good Fight” at a Park Avenue location on the night of Nov. 8, as Donald Trump pulled off his stunning political upset in the presidential race.

As Christine Baranski and Delroy Lindo got to work on a particularly emotional scene in “The Good Wife” spinoff — which premieres Sunday on CBS All Access — Kennedy looked out and saw the darkness around the edges of the office-building set flecked with the blue-ish glow of smartphone screens.

“Everyone in the crew was on their phones, and you could start to read it on everybody’s face,” Kennedy recalls.

As horrified as Kennedy was on a personal level (she’s no Donald Trump fan), her first instinct was to protect the actors from the news to allow them »

‘Legion’: How The Sets Helped Create the ‘X-Men’ FX Show’s Insanity From the Ground Up

17 February 2017 8:29 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Production designer Michael Wylie stands in the middle of an apartment made from scratch on a Vancouver soundstage, a place deliberately created to avoid being pinned down by space or time. “I’ll try to explain a little bit of what we’re doing but not too much,” he told reporters. “Because I have no idea what we’re doing.”

It was a joke, just to be clear, but it spoke to the spirit of FX’s “Legion,” the newest TV show to draw upon the rich legacy of Marvel Comics – specifically, the “X-Men” universe. What was being built up in Canada by Wylie and his team, under the direction of creator Noah Hawley, bore very little resemblance to past Marvel adventures. Instead, “Legion’s” inspirations include Pink Floyd, Stanley Kubrick, Bollywood and a style of architecture actively despised »

Newswire: A leaked set photo shows off some of Star Trek: Discovery’s aliens

13 February 2017 7:12 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

CBS and Paramount first set a course for Star Trek: Discovery in November 2015, and though that path hasn’t exactly been smooth—the series lost Bryan Fuller as showrunner a year later—it’s still been a fairly exciting ride. The cast, led by The Walking Dead’s Sonequa Martin Green, looks very promising. A recent featurette teased the uniforms and the shining, newly buffed insignia of the revised logo. That video also featured a shot of some heavy metal, i.e., suits of armor that were full of spikes. We guessed those were intended for the Klingons we’re going to meet, including Chris Obi’s T’Kuvma, a Klingon leader trying to bring all the great houses together. This leaked photo from the set appeared to confirm those suspicions.

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Behind-the-Scenes Trailer Gives First Glimpse of Costumes, Captain’s Chair

31 January 2017 10:25 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS has released a new behind-the-scenes trailer for “Star Trek: Discovery” that gives a first look at some of the series’ costumes, makeup and sets — including the iconic captain’s chair.

The one-minute trailer marks the start of production on the upcoming series, which kicked off in Toronto last week. The trailer shows construction of a set, costumes that appear to be Klingon uniforms, an actor being fitted for a Starfleet uniform, and designs for the titular starship Discovery. It ends with a shot of what appears to be the captain’s chair.

The kick-off to production on “Star Trek: Discovery” is noteworthy given the many delays and creative changes that the show has undergone since being announced in 2015. Earlier this month, Variety learned that the series premiere had been pushed back from its May target. The show had originally been slated to debut in January, which would have made it the first original series to stream »

Bryan Singer jumps on board to direct Fox’s X-Men series

26 January 2017 5:02 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

So much for Bryan Singer, director of four of the X-Men films in the franchise, which include 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, taking a break from further future X-Men duties. He’s just signed up to take the driving seat for the pilot in Fox’s TV series which is as yet untitled.

After finishing up with last summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse Singer stated: “Right now, once this one is done, I’d like to do something really different.” and he couldn’t have chosen a project any more different with a movie about Queen frontman Freddie Mercury so aptly entitled Bohemian Rhapsody which has Mr Robot’s own Rami Malek in the lead as the legendary Mercury. Singer, who has also directed an updated 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, which is based on the Jules Verne novel, currently in pre-production, is in no way a newcomer to the TV arena. »

James Frain Climbs Aboard Star Trek: Discovery As CBS Delays Premiere (Again)

18 January 2017 11:48 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Star Trek: Discovery may have cast James Frain in the role of Spock’s father, Sarek, but CBS’ small-screen reboot isn’t ready to leave the docking bay just yet.

Originally slated to debut in February 2017, before being pushed back to May following the departure of showrunner Bryan Fuller, the CBS All Access series is now without a premiere date at the time of writing, something the network attributes to the show’s “ambitious” nature.

Here’s the official statement:

“Production on ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ begins next week. We love the cast, the scripts and are excited about the world the producers have created. This is an ambitious project; we will be flexible on a launch date if it’s best for the show. We’ve said from the beginning it’s more important to do this right than to do it fast. There is also added flexibility presenting on CBS All Access, »

Here’s a piece of casting that’s sure to prick up your ears: Star Trek: Discovery has tapped True Blood’s James Frain to play Spock’s father Sarek.

First introduced in the original Star Trek, Sarek has made a handful of appearances throughout the franchise over the last five decades.

At the Television Critics Association press tour in August, the CBS All Access series’ then-showrunner Bryan Fuller said the 13-episode first season would “bridge the gap between Enterprise and the original series” and would deal with an incident in Starfleet history “that had been talked about but never fully explored. »

Hugh Dancy Weighs In On When Hannibal Could Return To Television

9 January 2017 8:26 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the biggest losses in recent memory when it comes to TV cancellations has to be Hannibal. After three incredible seasons, the show came to a premature end with a series finale which very much left the door open for some sort of return, and while there’s been talk of that possibly happening, we’ve heard nothing even remotely concrete.

Given the show’s poor performance in terms of ratings, perhaps that shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, but there’s a very real desire for Hannibal to return amongst both fans and those involved with the series, which starred Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy. Now, the latter has weighed in on when he thinks it could make its eventual return.

“My feeling is that, knock on wood, if it came around again, it wouldn’t be a bad thing for it to be four or five years later. »
