ABC Pulls Promos For New Series ‘Black Box’ Featuring Bryan Singer’s Name Amid Controversy

17 April 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

With Hollywood director Bryan Singer at the center of accusations of molesting a minor 15 years ago, his name will not be used to promote new ABC drama series Black Box. A small portion of the promos in circulation for the series, which premieres next Thursday, featured the X-Men director’s name. They have now been pulled, at least for the time being, according to sources. Former House executive producer Singer serves as an executive producer on the straight-to-series drama starring Kelly Reilly as a famous neuroscientist who is bipolar. Below is the official long trailer for the show, widely available online, in which Singer is indirectly referenced as Black Box being “from the executive producer(s) of House.” Related: ‘X-Men’s Bryan Singer To Skip This Weekend’s WonderCon In addition to Black Box, Singer also executive produces the upcoming CBS drama series Battle Creek, from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan »

The Write Stuff: Q&A with 'Community's Jim Rash

16 April 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jim Rash is currently having a very good year. The Oscar-winning screenwriter (remember his Angelina Jolie-leg impersonation onstage?) is following up his co-directorial debut The Way, Way Back with a new project named The Heart, set to star Kristin Wiig; Community, NBC's fan-favorite metasitcom featuring Rash as Greendale’s socially floundering Dean Craig Pelton, has experienced a critical resurgence thanks to the return of original showrunner Dan Harmon; and his SundanceTV show The Writer's Room, in which Rash talks to the writing staffs responsible for some of TV's best running shows, »

Breaking Bad: 13 Tie-In Products We’d Love To See

16 April 2014 3:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

AMC

Earlier this month, Bryan Cranston announced his proposal to pen a memoir of his career thus far, which will allow for particular focus on the actor’s time starring in a certain AMC crime drama. Cranston claims that he intends to “tell the stories of my life and reveal the secrets and lies that I lived with for six years shooting Breaking Bad,” which sounds wholly tantalising for anybody keen to delve further into the backstory of the show’s 62-episode run.

Eager fans of the award-winning series and Cranston’s other endeavours will apparently have to wait until late 2015 before the star’s anecdotes are published by Scribner. However, to tide us over in the meantime, it’s worth exhuming the show itself to ponder what other golden tie-ins it could have spawned along the way. Of course, Vince Gilligan’s series has been successful enough without heavy reliance on merchandising, »

Did 'Better Call Saul' save Saul Goodman from a 'Breaking Bad' bloodbath?

15 April 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Saul Goodman will live to sweet-talk his way into another day, as the "Breaking Bad" spinoff "Better Call Saul" inches ever closer to production. But there was a moment when Saul almost didn’t make it out of the "Breaking Bad" series finale alive. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, creator Vince Gilligan confirmed that an early version of the "Breaking Bad" ending featured a bloodbath that killed nearly every series regular, including Bob Odenkirk’s Saul. His life was spared in the end, at least in part, because of the upcoming spinoff. “If I’m being really honest, I have to admit that it probably was a factor. I don’t think it was a defining factor,” Gilligan said. “If we had come up with an ending that included Saul’s death and it was an idea that all of us looked to each other and we had chills running »

As it is, the Breaking Bad finale was pretty damn violent. But apparently, things could’ve gotten even bloodier. According to showrunner Vince Gilligan, at one point the writers were considering killing off just about everybody in a “Wild Bunch bloodbath of an ending.” So what made them change their minds?

Vince Gilligan Reveals Abandoned, Bloodbath 'Wild Bunch'-Esque Finale To 'Breaking Bad'

15 April 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Walter White may be dead, but it seems we can't stop talking about the finale to "Breaking Bad" even as we approach a year since it first aired. The meth dealer left for dead, it was a fitting ending to the character whose initial attempt to pay for cancer treatment turned into a new, illegal profession that turned him into a monster. And while we've known that the writers batted around many ideas when it came to how to close off the show, creator/writer/director Vince Gilligan reveals another version that would've seen a bigger body count. But he first lays out how tricky it was to put anything in place at all. "We had so many versions of the ending, and we really had boxed ourselves into a certain number of corners well in advance of the ending. Out of cockiness or stupidity, 16 episodes from the end, we »

Breaking Bad Finale Was Almost ‘a Bloodbath’

15 April 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Remember the Breaking Bad finale? It was a few months ago, yet hardly a day has gone by without some reference to it or another. And now it's time for today's! Vince Gilligan tells Entertainment Weekly that he considered ending the show with a lot more carnage. "In those final months and weeks of breaking the end of the Breaking Bad story, anything and everything was fair game and open for discussion," Gilligan says. "But the more we talked about it, the more we thought, 'You know, we don’t necessarily want the end of this series to be a bloodbath.' At one point, we talked about killing off every major character, and one particularly dark week along the way we talked about killing everybody — having some sort of Wild Bunch bloodbath of an ending." Gilligan et al eventually decided not to kill everyone. Just some people. Rip, Hank. »

More ‘Breaking Bad’ Alternate Endings Revealed by Vince Gilligan

Warning: Major Spoilers for Breaking Bad ahead.

-

When AMC’s enthralling crime drama Breaking Bad finally came to a close after five eventful seasons, its two main characters were changed men and there was a whole lot of blue meth in Albuquerque. Fans sat through a nail-biting climax where it seemed that any or all of the main characters could be killed off, and if things had gone just a little differently in the writers room then they may well have been.

Showrunner Vince Gilligan has talked previously about the writing process for Breaking Bad‘s final season and the many, many potential endings that he considered ...

Vince Gilligan on the 'Breaking Bad' finale, the abandoned 'Wild Bunch' bloodbath ending, and the all-time best finale

14 April 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

All Bad things must come to an end, read the tagline for the final season of Breaking Bad. And when the revered drug drama came barreling to a finish last September, creator Vince Gilligan, his writers, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and the rest of the cast sent off Walt in a machine-gun blaze of tragic glory — and it was good. And that’s no easy task. For EW’s “The Art of Saying Goodbye” story, which ran in the April 11 issue, we interviewed the masterminds behind 10 iconic series, who discussed the formidable challenges of concocting the perfect farewell episode.

'Breaking Bad' cast reunites at TV Academy: Hear their spin-off ideas

10 April 2014 10:52 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

If parting is such sweet sorrow, the cast of "Breaking Bad" isn't very sorrowful. Less than seven months after the Emmy-winning series cooked its last batch of blue meth, many of the show's long-running cast members -- Aaron Paul, Rj Mitte, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt and Bob Odenkirk -- gathered together Thursday night at the TV Academy in North Hollywood along with creator Vince Gilligan. (Alas, Bryan Cranston and Anna Gunn were too busy working on other projects to attend the "Breaking Bad" reunion.) Moderated by "Talking Bad" host Chris Hardwick, the cast recalled their greatest moments from the show and joked about other possible spin-off ideas in addition to the upcoming Odenkirk-centric spin-off on AMC titled "Better Call Saul."

Chris Hardwick: King of the Nerds

"Sorry, can you repeat that? I’m playing the new South Park video game. It’s amazing!" The interview has just started, and Chris Hardwick is already apologizing over the phone from his L.A. home. Had almost anyone else mentioned there were gaming in the middle of a conversation, the statement might be considered borderline rude. But come on: This is the man they call "The Nerdist," who's built an empire out of reviewing gadgets, internet binging and hosting conversations with past and present genre icons.

'Game of Thrones' Season Premiere Recap: Say Hi to the Bad Guys

6 April 2014 7:10 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Seventeen minutes. That's how much time passes in Game of Thrones' Season Four premiere before a scene without a Lannister in it. You remember the Lannisters, don't you? The people who tossed Bran Stark out a window; who executed Ned Stark for treason; who abused Sansa Stark before forcing her into marriage; who rule Westeros thanks to an illegitimate incest-produced bastard; and who orchestrated the Red Wedding massacre of Catelyn Stark, Robb Stark, Talisa Stark, and all we hold dear? On lesser shows, they'd just be thought of as "the bad guys"; here, »

More ‘Better Call Saul’ Characters Revealed; Bryan Cranston to Write Memoir

4 April 2014 5:34 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

While it always seems as if there are never enough details about the most anticipated projects, we know a comparatively large amount of information about Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, the cast, and which stars from the original series may make another appearance. What we don’t know, however, is which new characters will join Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman and Jonathan Banks’ Mike Ehrmantraut to populate the surely seedy world that this prequel will project. That is until now.

According to a new report, the show, which is being supervised by former Breaking Bad writer and producer Peter Gould with Vince Gilligan on board as an executive producer, is looking to ...

He’s currently starring as Lbj on Broadway’s All The Way. “Walter White taught me a lot — some of it useful, some of it dangerous,” said Cranston. “With this book, I want to tell the stories of my life and reveal the secrets and lies that I lived with for six years shooting Breaking Bad.” »

The 73rd Annual Peabody Awards were announced today, and the winners include some of the highest profile Emmy contenders, among them "Breaking Bad," "Scandal," and Netflix's two hot properties "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black." -Break- Of "Breaking Bad," the Peabody judges said, "Through a stunning brand of visual storytelling and meticulous character development, we were able to explore the darkest chambers of a human heart in a way never before seen on TV. Over five seasons, Vince Gilligan made good on his promise to utterly transform Walter White from Mr. Chips into Scarface." The admired "Scandal" as "an exaggerated, outrageous, fun-house reflection of the real-life political shenanigans," while grittier political drama "House of Cards" was praised for the way it "took binge viewing to a new level and obliterated the idea that a h »
