Deschanel postpones directing 'Bones'

3 December 2010 7:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Emily Deschanel has reportedly decided to delay directing an episode of Bones. According to TV Guide, Deschanel was planning to helm the 14th episode of the season and was expecting to have a reduced role in the previous two episodes to prepare. However, the show's executive producer Hart Hanson allegedly reconsidered the move when he realised that the show will be airing after American Idol in February and could capture a bigger audience. He explained that he "begged" Deschanel to postpone her directorial debut (more) »

'Bones' creator: 'TV is not a democracy'

2 December 2010 6:39 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bones creator Hart Hanson has insisted that television is "not a democracy". Speaking to The Daily Beast, Hanson revealed that he has decided not to interact with any Twitter users he does not personally follow after fans insulted the way he was running the show. "I was reading absolutely nothing that shed light on audience response," he said. "It suddenly occurred to me that what I was reading was largely just noise, much of it ill-spirited and, not to put too fine a point on it, dim... I didn't have to read all that crap. So I decided not to." Hanson explained that he appreciates viewers' passion for the show but got tired of people complaining about his decisions. "While I'm delighted that fans of the show think of it as 'their' show, that delight doesn't extend to any desire to listen to them tell (more) »

The Daily Beast: "Twitter's TV War"

30 November 2010 8:20 AM, PST | Televisionary | See recent Televisionary news »

Twitter should be a tool for audiences to interact with the talent behind their favorite shows—instead, anonymous users heap abuse onto writer-producers for ruining "their" shows. Over at The Daily Beast, you can read my latest feature, "Twitter's TV War," in which I speak to Community's Dan Harmon, Bones' Hart Hanson, and Grey Anatomy's Shonda Rhimes about the complicated relationship between access, privacy, and angry fans on the social networking platform. I'm curious to know what your take is and whether you side with showrunners or fans. What happens when the dialogue turns ugly? Head to the comments section to discuss.

Joss Whedon Shares His Feelings on New Buffy Movie

22 November 2010 5:30 PM, PST | | See recent news »

You all heard about the horrible, terrible, devastating news that Warner Bros. plans to go ahead with a Buffy reboot movie that doesn't involve Joss Whedon, right?  If you haven't, then you must have been off-planet today, because every geek and fangirl have been shrieking about it all over the internet for hours (myself included).

E!Online's Kristen had the foresight (and, you know, the contact information) to write to Buffy's original showrunner and ask for his opinion on the movie that will not be involving him.  Joss replies with grace and humor.  Especially humor:

Kristin, I'm glad you asked for my thoughts on the announcement of Buffy the cinema film.  This is a sad, sad reflection on our times, when people must feed off the carcasses of beloved stories from their youths—just because they can't think of an original idea of their own, like I did with »

Bones Spinoff Episode Pushed Back to 2011

9 November 2010 11:18 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The episode of Bones that paves the way for a potential spin-off of the fun Fox hit is on hold until early next year, according to EW. The catch-all “creative reasons” are to blame.

Fox did not comment on the cause of the schedule change, but Bones creator Hart Hanson did type a telling (and humorous) tweet last week that basically took responsibility.

“I received studio notes on the Bones spinoff idea. They want it to be better. Unreasonable taskmasters. Impossible dreamers. Neo-platonists,” he wrote, self-depricatingly.

Looks like we won't be meeting Booth's new counterpart quite yet.

The episode will introduce a tracker, Walter Sherman, the central figure in The Locator novels by Richard Greener. In the books, Sherman is a Vietnam veteran, but in the Bones universe, he will be a former military policeman who served in Iraq with Booth.

Just as Booth didn’t originally get along with socially-challenged Brennan, »

Review: 'Bones: The Complete Fifth Season'

31 October 2010 7:29 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

There’s a certain grisly reality to CBS’ collection of CSI series that does the procedural part well, but depicts its characters as a particularly colorless bunch, overly serious and making the shows just a tad less engaging. Fox, wisely jumped on the police procedural bandwagon with something similar but certainly livelier. Bones, based on Kathy Reichs novels, is a veritable rainbow of character types that has kept things captivating for six seasons now.

The fifth season, now out on DVD from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, takes a mature set of characters and stirs the pot a bit as the season progresses. The basic set-up has a team of forensic anthropologists working for the Jeffersonian, standing in for the Smithsonian, handling cases for the FBI, led by Special Agent Seely Booth. The title character is the nickname of Dr. Temperance Brennan and while she’s the focal point, the »

Arnold Vosloo Cast as "Evil Booth" Sniper on Bones

29 October 2010 6:31 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We've been wondering who the sniper will be on Bones for some time. Now we know.

Arnold Vosloo, who played a terrorist mastermind on 24, will wreak havoc on Bones.

The actor has been cast as this season’s Big Bad, an elite sniper named Jacob Ripkin Broadsky who is accused of assassinating a pivotal recurring character. It's unclear who he takes out, but Hannah's fate is still unclear, according to the writers. Hmm.

Arnold Vosloo is coming for David Boreanaz & Co.

“We’ve got someone worse than the Gravedigger coming,” Bones creator Hart Hanson told EW. “If the Gravedigger is Evil Brennan, then this [guy] is Evil Booth."

"Remember, Booth was a sniper.”

Vosloo, who played the title role in the Darkman films as well as Brendan Fraser’s nemesis in The Mummy films, will appear in at least three episodes in early 2011. »

'Bones' casts 'Mummy' star as Season 6's serial sniper

29 October 2010 5:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

There'll be no mystery to the identity of Season 6's big bad.

EW reports that "Bones" has cast "24" and "Mummy" star Arnold Vosloo as the serial sniper that creator Hart Hanson first hinted at in July.

Fox confirms to Zap2it that Vosloo will be playing the part of sniper Jacob Ripkin Broadsky, set to appear in at least three episodes starting in early 2011.

What still isn't clear is just how messed up this guy is going to be. He's been described as the anti-Booth, worse than the gravedigger and possibly even guilty of taking the life of a regular cast member.

The speculation is enough to drive us insane -- or be grateful that even the Internet can't spoil every development on one of our favorite series.

Hart Hanson Prepping ‘Bones’ Spinoff For Fox

22 October 2010 12:38 PM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Bones fans will have to make room in their viewing schedule, as series creator Hart Hanson is currently working on a spin-off of his popular television show that will based off of “The Locator” book series by Richard Greener.

The new series will follow the Locator, Walter Sherman, who is a brash, eccentric man in his 20s-30s with the ability to find people that nobody else can – including those who do not wish to be found.

The only caveat in Hanson’s newly revealed endeavor is that he, the rest of the Bones producers (which includes series stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel), Fox and 20th Century Fox TV are able to find an actor that can successfully carry a series on their own. Casting is scheduled to begin soon and if no one is…

Fox Planning Bones Spinoff Around New Character

22 October 2010 11:53 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Fox is working on a series that revolves around a new character who will be introduced on Bones December 6, according to new reports. His name? Walter Sherman.

The star of this potential Bones spinoff is described as "skeptical of everything" and "an eccentric but amusing recluse in high demand for his ability to find anything."

"He suffered brain damage while overseas, which explains his constant paranoia, and is known for asking offensive, seemingly irrelevant questions to get to the truth."

The potential Bones spinoff's lead character shares a past with Seeley.

Walter is also a former military policeman who served with Booth in Iraq, but they don't get along. Dr. Brennan, meanwhile, will be intrigued by Walter when he first appears.

Turning the tables on him a little in the wake of Hannah's introduction, is she?

The character is expected to recur on Bones throughout this season, with the future »

Fox Plotting a Bones Spin-Off Based on 'The Locator' Book Series

22 October 2010 9:35 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Deadline is reporting that Fox is planning a Bones spin-off based on 'The Locator' book series by author Richard Greener.

Bones' creator and executive producer Hart Hanson will also work on the spin-off if it comes to fruition. The current plan is for Walter Sherman, the "locator" character, to be introduced in the December 6 episode of Bones. He will be written to have served in Iraq with Booth (David Boreanaz) but the two will hate each other when they reunite. Bones (Emily Deschanel), however, will be intrigued by Sherman's "eccentric, obstreperous and amusing reclusive" behavior that allows him to have a knack for finding things. In other words, he sounds like what you'd expect the child of Bones and House to be.

Even though Fox will plant the Sherman character into at least one episode of Bones does not mean he's assured a spin-off series. The ratings and reaction »

'Bones' spin-off in the works: Who would you cast as the male Dr. Brennan?

21 October 2010 7:52 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Can't get enough "Bones?" Well, you may be in luck.

Deadline reports the series is currently considering a potential  spin-off -- though not one about any character we've already met. (There goes our dream of Dr. Hodgins, children's TV host.)

Instead, the series would focus on a new recurring character, Walter Sherman, who gets his introduction in the Dec. 6 episode. A former military policeman, he served with Booth (David Boreanez) in the Iraq war, though the two apparently can't stand one another.

Sherman, based on Richard Greener's "The Locator" book series, is described as an "eccentric, obstreperous and amusing reclusive man in his late 20s-30s with highly sought after abilities to find anything" who frequently "asks offensive, seemingly irrelevant questions."

Sound familiar? That more or less sums up the male version of Dr. Brennan (Emily Deschanel), albeit one with a bit more hermit-ish tendencies.

If the idea goes to series, »
