ABC Moves ‘Still Star-Crossed’ to Saturdays After 3 Low-Rated Episodes

22 June 2017 3:36 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The end appears to be in sight for “Still Star-Crossed.”

Variety has confirmed that ABC is moving the freshman Shondaland drama from Mondays to Saturdays after just three episodes, an almost sure sign that the network will cancel the series after its first season. All three episodes of the show that have aired thus far have failed to make an impact in the Nielsen ratings, even with a “Bachelorette” lead-in. To date, the series is averaging just a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.95 million viewers per episode in live-plus-same day. It will begin airing on Saturdays on July 8.

20 June 2017 9:07 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

For the most part, ABC's summer programming focuses on reality TV series, like The Bachelorette and game shows like Celebrity Family Feud. Still, the Alphabet Network always makes a little room for summertime scripted series. Although Mistresses was cancelled after four seasons, last fall, the Downward Dog sitcom premiered in May, and the Somewhere Between drama series kicks off in July. Joining them is the Still Star-Crossed TV show. Will this Romeo and Juliet sequel be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned. A Shondaland TV series adaptation of Melinda Taub's novel, Still Star-Crossed stars Grant Bowler, Wade Briggs, Torrance Coombs, Dan Hildebrand, Lashana Lynch, Ebonee Noel, Medalion Rahimi, Zuleikha Robinson, Sterling Sulieman, Susan Wooldridge, and Anthony Head. The ABC drama features the bloodshed and palace intrigue overwhelming fair Verona in the aftermath of the tragic deaths of Romeo (Laviscount) and Juliet (Rugaard). »

Still Star-Crossed TV Review – Ya Shakespeare Meets Shonda Rhimes

29 May 2017 2:38 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Still Star-Crossed, the novel by Melinda Taub, is an interesting and clever look at the world Shakespeare didn’t actually lay out all that distinctly in Romeo & Juliet.  It’s equal parts fan fiction and development cheat by appropriation, but it spins a decent yarn and delivers an updated sense of drama. It’s not only solid Ya entertainment, but it’s just the sort of effort we could use more of, both as an enticement to read more and backward entry into other literature.

Still Star-Crossed, the show, dresses up the idea wonderfully but renders it all rather lifeless by trying to out-drama itself at every turn in a decidedly Shondaland morass of overworked histrionics. Oddly, this manages, at points, to come full circle and become interesting again by offering up near-cornball drama in situations that actually require all the drama you would think you could muster.

Exclusive: 'Still Star-Crossed' Actress Previews Shonda Rhimes' New Romeo and Juliet Drama

26 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

We all know the story of Romeo and Juliet's fleeting romance and tragic deaths, but what happens next has always been a mystery -- until now.

Inspired by the novel by Melinda Taub, ABC's new summer series, Still Star-Crossed, ramps up the action and drama after Romeo and Juliet die, and the treacherous feud between the Montague and Capulet families that continues to rage on. But another forbidden romance presents itself at the end of the premiere episode and that will certainly ruffle 17th century feathers as the season progresses.

"It's the ultimate romantic story about forbidden love and I think a lot of people can relate to that," actress Medalion Rahimi, who plays Princess Isabella, tells Et of the time-honored Romeo and Juliet tale. "The tragedy in the end -- I don't want to say that it's good to necessarily glorify young lovers' suicide -- but the idea that because of prejudice these young lovers »

TV Review: Shondaland’s ‘Still Star-Crossed’ on ABC

16 May 2017 4:06 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On paper, the combination of Shondaland and Shakespeare is tantalizing: Both brands promise high drama, dangerous romance and memorable monologues. But “Still Star-Crossed,” from executive producer and writer Heather Mitchell and Shonda Rhimes’ production company, is a little too wispy and indistinct to make much of an impression. This drama, which continues the tale begun with the famous lovers’ deaths, is a melding that emphasizes surface bells and whistles without building on the solid foundation of nighttime soaps or the Bard’s depiction of the battle between the Montagues and Capulets.

The show has all the earnest energy — and stilted moments —you’d expect to find in a high-school play, albeit one with a uniformly swoon-worthy cast and an exceptional budget for candles and corsets. This new drama also recalls “Of Kings and Prophets,” a short-lived ABC program that premiered around the same time last year, during the annual spring/early summer TV yard sale, when »

‘Doctor Who’: The Next Doctor Rumored to Be ‘Chewing Gum’s’ Black Female Star — Report

21 April 2017 10:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every time the star of “Doctor Who” has announced they’re stepping down, speculation regenerates about his possible replacement. Ah, but what if this time, instead of a white male Doctor, the BBC finally listened to fans who’ve been seeking some diversity for the role?

According to a Nerdist, a source close to production insists that Michaela Coel will replace Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor, which would make her the first female and first black actor to play the role. This source is not an official BBC spokesperson though, and the statement the BBC released to Nerdist didn’t confirm anything: “No casting decisions have been made yet for ‘Doctor Who’ Season 11.”

Even though she is firmly Team Angel, Sarah Michelle Gellar made a surprising choice during a game of "Marry, Shag, Kill" when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. "I mean, I guess marry Angel, but can you really marry the undead?" the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star asked. Andy Cohen said you can, so, there you go. "Ok, so marry Angel, you shag Spike, obviously. I don't want to kill Xander though. Can I just…" The attention then turned to the big Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast reunion put together by Entertainment Weekly and some of the missing cast members.

A Buffy reunion has taken place, with Entertainment Weekly wrangling the cast into one place...

"This is like a high school reunion but much worse because they all still look really great," Joss Whedon is quoted as saying, in the big Entertainment Weekly reunion spread about Buffy The Vampire Slayer's 20th anniversary.

Better than Buffy? Spare a thought for the Vampire Diaries

11 March 2017 4:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The show bowed out as the world marked the 20th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but this was one blood-sucking show that could compete

The eight-season run of the Vampire Diaries ended quietly on Friday night, without a hint of the outsized media fanfare so liberally bestowed on series finales in television’s so-called golden age. The glossy adaptation of Lj Smith’s young-adult novel series, even before its latter-season decline in form and ratings, never did inspire the type of sophisticated critiques reserved for the major-network or cable darlings. But even amid a landscape that’s only been further crowded by the emergence of Netflix and Amazon, there is a place for the pure concentrated entertainment that was offered up for years by the CW’s deliciously pulpy supernatural soap opera. Television will be poorer – and a less fun place – without it.
