Book Review: 'Showrunners: The Art Of Running Of A TV Show' Takes A Look At A Misunderstood Job

19 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In Tara Bennett's book "Showrunners: The Art Of Running A TV Show," the job is variously described as being a dictator, a CEO or leading an army. And while we're now in the era of celebrity showrunners—Damon Lindelof ("Lost," "The Leftovers"), Matthew Weiner ("Mad Men"), Vince Gilligan ("Breaking Bad")—it's often forgotten how expansive the responsibilities that come with that position truly are. If you've ever wondered exactly how complicated the machinery is that drives your favorite show, or what the gig actually entails, Bennett's book—a companion piece to the forthcoming documentary directed by Des Doyle—is a slightly jumbled, but still interesting peek behind the curtain. With names like Joss Whedon, Jonathan Nolan, Terrence Winter, Damon Lindelof and more taking part, 'Showrunners' brings a broad spectrum of talent from shows both popular and niche, both successful and failed, to help define what that eleven letter word means. »

'Breaking Bad,' 1 year later: Emmy-winning team tells 'Ozymandias' secrets

15 September 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

With the final four episodes of Breaking Bad looming last fall, Vince Gilligan hinted, “A great many chickens will come home to roost for Walt.” And, sure enough, in “Ozymandias,” the third-to-last episode of AMC’s harrowing, Emmy-winning meth drama, many of said chickens knocked down the front door of his house and made themselves comfortable in his living room.

During that hour of punishing and mesmerizing television, Walt (Bryan Cranston) would lose much of his blood money and most of his family (except for his baby daughter, whom he kidnapped in a moment of desperation), the latter being the »

David Tennant, Anna Gunn interview on making 'Gracepoint'

15 September 2014 12:46 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Imagine if a Time Lord and Skyler White teamed to solve a young boy’s murder in a small Northern California town? That’s what it’s like for fans of Doctor Who and Breaking Bad approaching Fox’s Gracepoint, which takes David Tennant and Anna Gunn, beloved for playing for iconic cable TV roles, and puts them into a big broadcast prime-time crime series. For Tennant, the role means embracing the unusual, perhaps unprecedented, step of reprising the same character he played in Broadchuch, the U.K. version of the show (though Fox has added a different ending for Gracepoint). For Gunn, »

What to binge-watch this week: 'Sleepy Hollow,' 'Doctor Who,' 'The X-Files'

12 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Last week, we pretty much realized that we had an illegally elected, alcoholic figurehead for a president on Scandal. This week, we march forward on our 30 Days of Binge calendar to season 3 of Scandal, and all that wine Pope drinks will sure come in handy as we see the fallout from Olivia Pope being uncovered as the president’s mistress to the media.

We also became acquainted with Michael Emerson’s excellence in creepiness as “Henry Gale” on season 2 of Lost, and watched as the islanders continue on pressing that damned button in the hatch. This week, we see what »

Take Me To The Pilots '14: CBS' 'Battle Creek'

29 August 2014 10:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "Battle Creek" (CBS - Midseason) The Pitch: "Hi! My name is Vince Gilligan. You might remember me from such shows as..." "Sold!" "Wait, but I'm not actually going to be available to do anything here." "We *said* 'Sold.'" "Woo-hoo!" Quick Response: Vince Gilligan's script for "Battle Creek," which sat in a desk for a decade before getting a straight-to-series order from CBS, is Not "Breaking Bad." It's a goofier, lighter brew than what you're expecting and if I had to compare it to anything in Gilligan's filmography, I might actually go with something earlier and more comedic, like "Home Fries," which Nobody at CBS wants to hear. I liked "Home Fries." It's kooky and charming. "Battle Creek" is also kooky and charming, but I can't say with certainty that that's what anybody at CBS is going to want it to be long-term, a long-term that will take »

Breaking Bad Complete Series Blu-ray Barrel Returning from Sold Out on October 28

28 August 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Last fall as Vince Gilligan and AMC's Breaking Bad was wrapping up its final season, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released the lavish and oh-so-appropriate Breaking Bad Complete Series Blu-ray barrel set to the retail equivalent of a standing ovation. It quickly sold out to never be available other than the secondary market again in the neighborhood of $400, or so we thought.

Breaking Bad and its stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn attended the Emmy's as a team for the final time this past Sunday and walked away with all the big awards they were up for including Best Drama, Best Actor in a Drama, Best Supporting Actor in a Drama, and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama. The opportunity was ripe for Sony to take advantage of the renewed interest in Breaking Bad and that's precisely what they have done.

26 August 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Breaking Bad" ended months ago, but last night at the 2014 Emmys, the cast had one last chance to get together and say goodbye to the show's many fans.

A Journey Through 'Breaking Bad's Perfect Emmy Night

26 August 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It was a pretty unforgettable night for the cast of "Breaking Bad" at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. It began here, with Bryan Cranston proving he can rule a 2014 red carpet while rocking a Vincent Price mustache.  He can rule it with his wife too, as Michelle Dockery (in a very "Laugh-In"-themed gown) and Christina Hendricks look on. Here's Anna Gunn arriving. The best "Breaking Bad" fans love Skyler White. Full stop. Aaron Paul and his wife linger inside. Maybe he'll get to mention her website on national TV. Who knows? Here are Vince Gilligan, Gunn, and Cranston mere minutes away from owning the whole evening. When the evening took off, "Breaking Bad" couldn't help but cross paths with other victorious shows. Cranston proved he was in control of the entire night by approaching Julia Louis-Dreyfus and reminding her of exactly who he played on "Seinfeld." Do you think »
