What If MTV Ran the Emmy Awards?

9 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

To avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football, NBC moved the 2014 Emmy Awards telecast up a month, to August 25. But in swerving clear of the football juggernaut, the Emmys steered right into the lane of the landmark cultural occasion of late August: the MTV VMAs, scheduled for one day prior. It got us thinking: What if we took things to their logical conclusion and handed MTV control of the Emmys, as well? Using categories from both the VMAs and their summertime counterpart, the MTV Movie Awards, we've imagined what would happen if the cable network was in charge of handing »

The Strain – Episode 6 Review

18 August 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the sixth episode of The Strain

Manacled by a cast iron dog collar and naked except for stained underwear a man sits surrounded by empty food wrappers. As the padded cell door opens he begins begging with his captor. Slowly Thomas Eichorst (Richard Sammel) begins turning the crank handle of a medieval pulley system, drawing his guest inch by inch towards a stone mantle smeared with blood. A neck rest fashioned on one side is there for one purpose only. As fear gives way to resignation Eichorst (Richard Sammel) runs a paternal hand through his hair.

Several metres above ground Vasilly Fet (Kevin Durand) sits in a coffee shop sketching creatures over breakfast. Eph (Corey Stoll) is now a fugitive wanted for questioning crouching behind cars watching police question his ex-wife, while Abraham Sekrakian (David Bradley) continues making house calls to dead passengers. However Gus Elizalde (Miguel Gomez »

Emmy Predictions 2014: Outstanding comedy/drama writing

15 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Because it's NBC's turn to air the Primetime Emmy Awards this year, and because the Peacock would understandably rather air its lucrative Sunday night NFL package in September, the ceremony will take place in late August again. And as an added wrinkle, this year's ceremony will actually happen on a Monday, August 25 at 8 p.m., with Seth Meyers hosting. Between now and then, Dan and I will be making our picks for both who should and will win many of the major categories — if you're wagering, keep in mind that Dan tends to be much better at predicting the winners than I am, but also that he was just as flummoxed as I by last year's winners like Jeff Daniels, Merritt Wever and Bobby Cannavale — continuing with our look at the comedy and drama series writing categories.

Tax Incentives Build Thriving Production Culture in New Mexico

14 August 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

New Mexico production is often synonymous with big-name network and studio tentpoles, but the same incentives that lure Hollywood’s biggest players to the state foster more modest filmmaking.

Take local producer Marshall Bear. The local film and TV tax credits, first enacted in 2002, have brought production into his back yard — literally. Bear is producing the indie feature “Burning Bodhi,” most of which is shooting on the 4-acre grounds of his Albuquerque home, with cameo appearances by his pet donkeys, Trudy, Sina and Violet.

Its two-legged cast, toplined by Kaley Cuoco (“The Big Bang Theory”), is largely from Hollywood, but the film is packed with homegrown talent behind the camera, from its writer-director Matthew McDuffie, to the bulk of its below-the-line crew, which includes 15 interns, many of whom come from the screenwriting classes McDuffie teaches at the U. of New Mexico.

TV Fight Club: 'The Sopranos' vs. 'Breaking Bad'

13 August 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

They’re both groundbreaking cable dramas about a crime lord who tries to keep his suburban family together while building his empire. Both have also often been called the best drama series of all time. In one corner: HBO’s The Sopranos (1999-2007), which pioneered the serialized anti-hero drama trend. In the other: AMC’s Breaking Bad (2008-2013), which gathered viewers and critical esteem with each passing season until some declared that it had surpassed its predecessor.

The Showrunner Must Go On as Their Roles Continue to Evolve

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

The late Aaron Spelling was modest and courtly to a fault. So when asked about his storied career at the TV Critics Assn. tour years ago, he gave most of the credit to the actors, writers and artisans with whom he’d worked.

When a rather naive reporter wondered what he contributed if that were true, Spelling spoke at length about approving and overseeing every aspect of production down to the smallest details, then added, “Other than that, I don’t do anything.”

Despite the 56,000-sq.-ft., 123-room mansion producing helped him furnish, Spelling was never referred to as a “showrunner” — since by all accounts the term didn’t exist through most of his career. Indeed, it’s not precisely clear when the designation began to be widely used, with most pegging its coining to the late 1980s or early ’90s, as writers exerted greater influence over the medium.

‘Better Call Saul’ Teaser Touts February Premiere

11 August 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Better Call Saul” has already perfected the art of the tease, with the first footage from the hotly anticipated “Breaking Bad” spinoff lasting a svelte eight seconds in AMC’s newly released promo.

Aside from the shocking revelation that Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) had more hair when he was younger, the teaser also revealed that the show will premiere in February, meaning we only have six months to wait before the crooked legal eagle returns to our screens.

Better Call Saul” has already been renewed for a second season ahead of its series debut.

At AMC’s Television Critics Assn. press tour panel, producer Vince Gilligan confirmed that the show is a prequel that will take place in 2002, but added, “you saw on ‘Breaking Bad’ that we like nonlinear storytelling.”

Better Call Saul Teaser

11 August 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

AMC has released a brief teaser trailer for their Breaking Bad spin-off series, Better Call Saul. It features Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman giving some humorous insight into why people need lawyers. The network also announced that the series is set to debut in February of 2015. Co-creator Vince Gilligan had this to say in a statement to THR about the series and where it's headed:

"I don't think we're giving anything away to say we're still figuring this out — including if and when we'll see some of these characters. We like nonlinear storytelling. I would point you in the direction of anything that was possible on Breaking Bad is possible on Better Call Saul."

I'm excited for the potential that this series has, and I'm sure it will give us fans some solid entertainment.

AMC Reveals Better Call Saul Teaser Trailer and February Premiere Date

11 August 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Expect the unexpected was an unwritten mantra of AMC's hit drama Breaking Bad and that's precisely the tact the cable network took today by quietly dropping the first Better Call Saul teaser trailer online this morning.

In the trailer we catch up with Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), hair plugs intact and looking a bit more youthful than we're used to seeing him on Breaking Bad. Saul is being, well, Saul as he tries to solicit a new client by making a comparison between lawyers and health insurance. You wouldn't want to be caught without either.

AMC had originally planned to premiere Better Call Saul, a prequel to Breaking Bad centered around Saul Goodman, this November. Instead, AMC bumped up their initial order of episodes from one season to two, and pushed the premiere back into early 2015 where it could piggyback off The Walking Dead on Sunday evenings.

Better Call Saul Teaser Confirms February 2015 Premiere

11 August 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Better Call Saul won’t be landing in November of this year, as was previously planned by AMC, Breaking Bad fans craving their latest Albuquerque fix don’t have that long to wait for the highly anticipated spinoff. A new teaser trailer released by the network today promises that the show, which follows the misadventures of lawyer Saul Goodman before he ever became entangled with dastardly chemistry teacher Walter White and his meth-cooking partner Jesse Pinkman, will land in February.

In the brief teaser, Saul makes an effort to land some new clients. It’s slight even by teaser standards, but Breaking Bad fans will likely take whatever they can get of Bob Odenkirk’s sleazy smooth talker at this point.

The exact date of Better Call Saul‘s premiere will of course be revealed closer to next year. Production is currently underway in Albuquerque, where a billboard recently »

'Better Call Saul' Confirms Early 2015 Premiere With Teaser Trailer

Better Call Saul's delay won't be that long after all. After AMC pushed the Breaking Bad spinoff's November launch (and gave it an auspicious season-two renewal) earlier this summer, it's now set to debut in February 2015. That little nugget of information was dropped in the first teaser trailer (below). The exact date will obviously reveal itself closer to the new year, but production on Saul is already well underway —with filming in Albuquerque pleasing fans with a billboard and co-creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould recently speaking with reporters about the decision to hold off a few

AMC Premieres Short Better Call Saul Teaser; February Premiere Date Confirmed

11 August 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As rumors (and facts) about AMC's Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul continue to swirl, the network has released a (very short) teaser.  In it, a younger (at least, his hair is back to the color it would have been in 2002) Saul (Bob Odenkirk) speaks to an unknown character, explaining the benefits of having a lawyer.  The teaser also pegs the premiere date as being in February.  Hit the jump for the Better Call Saul teaser, and more on the series. In our recent TCA interview, creators/showrunners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould spoke about the uncertainties surrounding the series.  Gilligan said, "It’s a leap of faith, or stupidity, into the unknown.  I thought it was going to be easy, going forward, because we know who this guy is.  But we didn’t really know who this guy is, at all, when you think about it.  He was a really interesting supporting character. »

First Teaser for AMC's Breaking Bad Prequel Series Better Call Saul

11 August 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Created by Breaking Bad creator and showrunner Vince Gilligan and Breaking Bad writer and producer Peter Gould, who serve together as co-showrunners of the premiere season, Better Call Saul is scheduled to premiere on AMC next year. Better Call Saul is the prequel to the award-winning series Breaking Bad, set six years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) became Walter White’s lawyer. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and often against, Jimmy is "fixer" Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks), a beloved character introduced in Breaking Bad. The series will track Jimmy's transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts "criminal" in »

22 Dumb Decisions In Breaking Bad [Video]

7 August 2014 6:37 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Breaking Bad rules. There’s no two ways about it.

If you haven’t seen it (as if that’s even possible), it’s unquestionably one of the greatest TV series’ to ever grace our screens. Masterfully bringing together an incredible cast and partnering it with with a slow burning, jaw-dropping, unpredictable storyline over five seasons.

By taking an unassuming chemistry teacher and turning him into Scarface, Vince Gilligan changed TV forever.

The characters, their world and the struggles that they each faced felt so real, that the audience were just completely absorbed by the whole thing. It single handedly proved that the future of storytelling really does lie with TV. People are going to be using Breaking Bad as the benchmark for decades to come, it’s a ‘go-to’ show, up there with The Wire & The Sopranos and it hasn’t even been a year since it ended.
