‘The X-Files,’ ‘Rush Hour’ Drive Buzz Among International Buyers at La Screenings

23 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The return of “The X-Files” and the reboot of “Rush Hour” stirred strong buzz among the nearly 2,000 international television buyers who converged in Los Angeles this week for the annual L.A. Screenings program market.

Sony Pictures TV International had a strong response to its Amazon Studios drama “Mad Dogs,” as did CBS Studios International for its action-thriller “Limitless.”

Buyers made the rounds of studio screenings and parties throughout the week to get a first look at series that have been picked up by broadcast networks for the 2015-16 season, as well as new cable and digital productions.

The marathon week started Sunday with Disney’s presentation of a dozen new series, ranging from ABC’s revival of “The Muppets” to the “Criminal Minds” spinoff “Beyond Borders.”

For most buyers, the screenings are the first step in dealmaking negotiations that are finalized later. But some put their money on the table right away. »

Upfronts Analysis: Freshman Series Renewal Rate Improves as Nets Favor Sibling Studios

18 May 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Upfront season is all about the search for primetime’s Next Big Thing. But for a studio, the win doesn’t come until a series is renewed for season two and beyond.

For all the upheaval in TV, the 2014-15 season generally proved fertile for Big Four broadcast nets. The renewal rate of scripted series introduced during the September-May frame is higher than it has been since at least 2009-10 for all but NBC, according to research by Variety Insight.

ABC renewed seven of its 11 new series for a second round in 2015-16, compared to three of 14 from the 2013-14 season. CBS picked up five of its eight freshman shows, compared to two out of eight from the class of 2013-14. Fox renewed three out of eight, an improvement over two of eight from last year. NBC so far has renewed one out of a total of 10 scripted series introduced during the past season, »

Upfronts 2015: The Best, Worst and Weirdest Moments of TV’s Marathon Week

15 May 2015 5:55 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The curtain came down on the 2015 upfronts in the wee hours of Friday morning when the last hardy souls cleared out of CW’s thank-god-it’s-finally-over bash at Park Avenue Spring in Gramercy Park.

TV’s marathon week seems to grow longer every year, with more parties and related events added to the already grueling schedule of network programming presentations. As always, there were highlights, lowlights and head-scratching moments to remember. To use a metric that everyone in showbiz can understand — awards shows — here’s our rundown of the week that was.

Best dressed network ad sales chief: NBCUniversal’s Linda Yaccarino, who hit the stage three times in four days with presentations at NBC (Monday), NBCUniversal Hispanic Group (Tuesday) and NBCUniversal Cable (Thursday).

Best goofy video to start a presentation: Stephen Colbert and Leslie Moonves at CBS. A couple of hams.

Best use of talent to sell a show: Mike Epps, »

ABC releases trailers for their 2015-2016 shows, including ‘The Catch’ and ‘The Muppets’

12 May 2015 6:18 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Quantico

With many shows from the 2014-2015 television season easing into their season finales over the next few weeks, numerous network channels are already beginning to gear up for the 2015-2016 television season’s unofficial kickoff in September. ABC is no different, as they have already announced their renewals, cancellations, and new projects. At Upfronts this week, the channel released trailers for a number of their new series, along with details on each show.

Among the trailers released was the new Shonda Rhimes series The Catch.

From Shondaland’s Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, “The Catch” is a new thriller centered on the strong, successful Alice Martin (Mireille Enos). She’s a fraud investigator who’s about to be the victim of fraud herself by her fiancé. Between her cases, she is determined to find him before it ruins her career.

ABC also released a trailer for the new Ken Jeong-starring sitcom Dr. Ken. »

Snap Judgments on ABC’s New Shows

12 May 2015 4:36 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's Upfronts Week, which means networks are unveiling teasers and trailers for their new 2015–16 TV shows. Here, an extremely preliminary set of immediate reactions to ABC's new series. The Catch It's Shondaland's newest entry. Mireille Enos (The Killing) is a fancy-schmancy fraud investigator — who herself has just been defrauded by her fiancé. First impressions: This seems like a perfect companion piece for How to Get Away With Murder (The Catch airs during Tgit, while Htgawm is off season), a slightly glam drama with a dark side. I had many, many beefs with The Killing, but Enos's performance was top-notch, so go forth and be mysterious, ma'am. I would prefer if the promo said, "who is conning whom," but I am learning to live with pain. Dr. Ken It's a multi-camera family sitcom based on Ken Jeong —  an actual doctor himself! First impressions: I would like better jokes, please. »

10 Things We Learned at ABC’s 2015–2016 Upfront Presentation

12 May 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At ABC's upfront, a few truths held true: Constance Wu can steal any show, diversity is TV's favorite new buzzword, and Montel Jordan still makes every woman in the room dance. Ahead, the Things We Learned at the network's presentation.ABC isn’t scared of diversity, and it really wants you to know.Jimmy Kimmel devoted a lot of his set to jokes about diversity, namely: how much ABC has it! “We’re doing very well now that we started acknowledging that minorities exist,” said Kimmel. “Except The Bachelor, we’re going to keep that one white.” The network is adding two other sitcoms led by nonwhite actors to its roster: Uncle Buck, a black reboot of the John Candy original, starring Mike Epps; and Ken Jeong’s Dr. Ken. (The network played this up by having Epps and Jeong “confuse” one another as the stars of Black-ish and Fresh Off the Boat. »

With ‘Agent Carter,’ ‘Wicked City’ & more, ABC wants viewers to mind the gap

12 May 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Different network executives have different buzzwords or phrases they like to lean on at upfront time. When Les Moonves was more day-to-day with CBS primetime, for instance, he loved to pepper his remarks to the press and advertisers with "make no mistake" and "clearly." For the last few years, ABC's Paul Lee has gone strong with "delicious" to describe anything he likes. But the Word of the Day for Lee's press call to discuss next season's schedule (Fienberg has all the details here) was "gap," as Lee talked about all the timeslots that will be shared next season, as one show fills the gap while another takes a break at mid-season. Among the partners in time: "Agent Carter" once again minding the gap for "Agents of Shield" on Tuesdays at 9, the surprising return of "Galavant" to occupy the "Once Upon a Time" slot on Sundays at 8, "Secrets & Lies" shifting to »
