Those who still want their MTV are about to get their fill. On Aug. 1, the channel currently known as VH1 Classic will be rebranded as MTV Classic, and be pumped full of all the shows that built Music Television into a viewing destination for all the cool kids in your neighborhood.

Digital Download Giveaway – Silicon Valley Season 3

27 July 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The tech smart and not so business savvy group of guys are back.

HBO released Silicon Valley: The Complete Third Season on Digital HD this week. It is available on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Instant Video, Vudo, Xbox Video, Best Buy’s Cinema Now, Nook, Playstation Video and Verizon Fios.

Here’s the synopsis for the third season:

After last season's shocking ending, which found Pied Piper celebrating legal victory just as Richard (Thomas Middleditch) was ousted as CEO, Season 3 picks up where we left off, with Richard offered the diminished role of Cto and the rest of his team – Erlich (T.J. Miller), Jared (Zach Woods), Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani) and Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) – facing the question of just how far their loyalty extends. With a new no-nonsense CEO hell-bent on transforming everything from Pied Piper's offices to its business agenda, the guys must find a way to triumph »

6 Things We Learnt At The Silicon Valley Sdcc Panel

23 July 2016 9:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Bachmanity has begun! Well, not entirely, but the spirit of Erlich Bachman’s season three game-changer was palpable as the cast of HBO’s Silicon Valley got together for their first ever panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Cast members Thomas Middleditch, Amanda Crew, Kumail Nanjiani, Zach Woods, writer/director/executive producer Alec Berg and co-creator Mike Judge were in attendance as fans were treated to exclusive extras, some (minor) hints for season four and also got to watch the cast hijack the panel from the poor Entertainment Weekly writer tasked with leading their conversation.

Sadly, missing from the panel were T.J. Miller, Big Head himself, who is “off filming some movie with Steven Spielberg” (Ready Player One, for those not paying attention) and Martin Starr, Aka Gilfoyle, who happens to be in Atlanta filming Spider-Man: Homecoming that, “obviously not one person at Comic Con would have any questions about, »

‘Van Helsing’: Neil Labute Challenges Expectations With Bloody, Surprising New Syfy Series

21 July 2016 6:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“This is a show about pacifists.”

So claimed executive producer Simon Barry after fans at Comic-Con watched a particularly gruesome scene from the upcoming Syfy series “Van Helsing.”

Clearly, nothing could be further from the truth.

But what’s truly shocking about “Van Helsing” has little to do with blood (even though there’s a lot of it). Neil Labute is actively bucking expectations fans may have regarding vampires.

The award-winning playwright — who’s making his debut as a showrunner on this one-hour drama — decided early on things would be different with this interpretation of Bram Stoker’s age-old vampire hunter. For one, he would be a she. Syfy’s “Van Helsing” tracks Vanessa Helsing as she learns to deal with a “secret power” that helps her oust nightwalkers, and actress Kelly Overton couldn’t have drawn from a better source.

“The biggest inspiration I drew from was Sigourney Weaver in Aliens, »

‘Silicon Valley’: Mike Judge and Cast Tease Next Season at Comic-Con

21 July 2016 5:42 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The “Silicon Valley” writers are back to work and breaking stories for Season 4 – and one thing’s for certain: The Pied Piper crew will continue to experience both highs and lows.

“We feel the guys are outsiders,” executive producer Alec Berg told the audience Thursday at “Silicon Valley’s” San Diego Comic-Con panel. “As soon as they become the winners, the show gets less interesting.”

Added executive producer Mike Judge: “It’s more fun to watch these guys be uncomfortable and fail and be humiliated. They’re funnier that way. If they become successful and live happily ever after it will be less fun to watch.”

That doesn’t mean the crew won’t continue to occasionally experience victories. “[The show] does a good job of having plausible triumphs,” said Zach Woods (who plays Jared).

Mike Judge Receives Comic-Con Award During ‘Silicon Valley’ Panel; Writers Busy On Season 4

21 July 2016 4:54 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The riotous T.J. Miller was a no-show at HBO’s Silicon Valley Comic-Con panel this afternoon — he was busy shooting Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One. No problem. Comic-Con exec Laura Jones lauded Silicon Valley co-creator Mike Judge with a career achievement award for his work in film and TV, and Miller not stealing all the laughs in the packed Indigo Room over at the Hilton Bayfront, that responsibility went to Kumail Nanjiani, Zach Woods and Thomas Middleditch, who… »

Why Oliver Stone Thinks ‘Pokemon Go’ Could Create Totalitarianism

21 July 2016 4:19 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s the craze that’s sweeping the planet… but it has Oliver Stone very, very worried.

In speaking with fans at San Diego Comic-Con today, the director had the chance to explain his approach to bringing the story of Edward Snowden to life in his appearance in Hall H, along with some heavy discussion of issues regarding cybersecurity and the role technology plays in our lives.

And things got specific — and a bit scary — when the subject of “Pokemon Go” came up. An audience member asked the panel for its thoughts on Nintendo’s massively popular game, specifically how using your phone’s location settings to collect critters in the real world stands out as an example of people willingly giving up their data to corporations.

While Zachary Quinto (who co-stars in “Snowden”) doesn’t enjoy the idea of the game — instead preferring the opportunity to put down his »

Comic Con 2016: Luc Besson’s ‘Valerian’ Footage Teases ‘Star Wars’-Level Ambition and ‘Fifth Element’ Fun

21 July 2016 3:29 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Exactly one year from today — July 21, 2017 — “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” starring Dane Dehane and Cara Delevingne will premiere in theaters. And based on what was screened at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, Luc Besson may have once again brought to life a delicious blend of sci-fi, action, and comedy.

Besson’s filmography not only includes impressive works like “The Professional” and “La Femme Nikita,” but also the cult sci-fi favorite “The Fifth Element,” which brought a lived-in feel (as well as some breathtaking action sequences) to a futuristic world.

“Fifth Element” was famously a childhood dream project of Besson’s, but making “Valerian” looks to bring him full circle to childhood thanks to the original comic series “Valerian and Laureline,” which he fell in love with at the age of 10. Later, when making “Fifth Element,” he encountered artist Jean-Claude Mézières, who drew “Valerian,” and they worked together to create the “Element” look. »

Fox has cast “Walking Dead” alum Benedict Samuel for Season 3 of “Gotham,” Taye Diggs joins the third season of “Empire” and more in Monday’s TV News Roundup. 

Casting

The Walking Dead’s” Benedict Samuel will join DC Comics-inspired series “Gotham” as Mad Hatter, aka Jervis Tetch, a brilliant hypnotist on the verge of insanity.

Trump Vs. Clinton: Why the 2016 Presidential Race is the Summer’s Best Blockbuster

18 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last summer, the New York Times reported that Steven Spielberg and Barack Obama were discussing ways to “develop a narrative” after the president left office. While Obama’s late-game approval ratings could create a great crowd-pleaser, our current election season is more like something directed by Lars Von Trier  — deeply disturbing, but so sensationally realized it’s impossible to look away.

All political candidates define campaigns by the stories they choose to tell about themselves, and so we expect homilies that limn their humility, dedication, and leadership. This season, however, has devolved into an unnerving thrill ride rich with powerful images and unexpected twists, not to mention an absurd showdown between two characters who are more distinctive than any movie star working today.

The unlikely rise of Donald Trump has left all sides agape. Menacing supervillain to some, bold truth-teller to others, this “Cheeto Jesus” defines himself with assaultive bluster »

Michel Gondry’s Mysterious Career: How He Keeps Making Movies Even When Nobody’s Watching

15 July 2016 10:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Michel Gondry made his first movie 15 years ago, and he never really stopped, although most moviegoers will struggle to name them all. It’s a pretty short list — he’s directed another feature every two to three years—but his playful oeuvre, which includes large-scale and minuscule productions in both English and French, follows such a jagged path that Gondry has himself become a living paradox: While his name conjures a unique handmade aesthetic and surreal, dreamlike experiences of lost souls, his output wanders so much that his films easily slip below most people’s radars.

“I feel forgotten sometimes,” he said during a conversation in New York last week. “It’s a bit disorienting.” The occasion for the conversation provided a perfect example of that disconnect: a new Gondry movie few people have heard about. At the end of last year, “Microbe and Gasoline,” Gondry’s eighth feature, had yet to land U. »

2016 Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Comedy Series

14 July 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quick Hits

Last Year’s Winner: “Veep” Was It an Upset? Kind of. Most experts believed “Modern Family’s” five-year win streak would end, but disagreed over whether “Veep,” “Transparent” or “Louie” would defeat it. Still Eligible? Yes Hot Streak: Though “Modern Family” lost its winning streak last year, it could still become the most awarded program ever in this category with just one more win. It’s currently tied with “Frasier” at five trophies. Fun Fact: The last time the highest-rated show nominated won was in 2012 (“Modern Family”). The last time the lowest-rated show won was most likely in 2004, when “Arrested Development” took home the prize over “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Will and Grace” (though lack of ratings for certain HBO programs makes it hard to tell for sure).

Emmys 2016 Trivia: Amy Poehler & Tina Fey Shared A Nod & 20 Other Wild Things About This Year’s Nominations

14 July 2016 1:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made history Thursday morning. The pals were nominated in the Guest Actress in a Comedy Emmy category for hosting “Saturday Night Live.”

That’s not unusual — “SNL” hosts are nominated for Emmys all the time. But here’s what’s unique: Poehler and Fey were nominated as a single, combined entity. Earlier this year, the TV Academy accepted their joint submission, and their names appeared together on nomination ballots.

That’s never happened in an acting category before because, well, a person is generally one person. But this was a unique circumstance: “SNL” guest hosts are eligible for guest star Emmys – but usually even comedy teams are nominated separately. (For example, Keegan-Michael Key is nominated this year for “Key & Peele” in the supporting comedy actor category, but Jordan Peele is not. »

2016 Emmy Directing Nominees: Writers Rule Comedy, Few Women Helmers Break into Top Series Races

14 July 2016 1:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A funny thing happened this year with the Emmy nominations for directing a comedy series: Most of the nods went to writers.

Meanwhile, female directors are few and far between in the top series races. One notable entrant is Beyonce, who earned a mention, shared with Kahlil Joseph, for variety special for the hourlong avant-garde film that premiered on HBO in tandem with the release of her album “Lemonade” in April. Also in the mix this year is Danish helmer Susanne Bier, up for limited series for her work as the sole director of AMC’s six-hour limited series “The Night Manager.”

The list of comedy series directing nominees is dominated by showrunners and those who came up the ranks as writers.

Silicon Valley’s” Alec Berg and Mike Judge each earned a nom for the HBO comedy, Berg for “Daily Active Users” and Judge for “Founder Friendly.” “Transparent” creator/exec producer Jill Soloway, who »

In 1971, the 300-or-so people pawing through cardboard boxes of dusty comic books couldn't have possibly imagined that they were standing in what would become the cradle of nerd civilization. From a small meetup for diehard geeks, San Diego Comic-Con has grown into one of the largest and most feverishly anticipated pop-cultural events of the year. Thousands upon thousands of industry types, journalists, the devout faithful (and the suckers they've handsomely paid to stand in line as proxies) and cosplaying fans of all stripes will descend upon the city from July »

Mike Judge Thinks Beavis and Butt-Head Could Return, But in Live-Action

8 July 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

If there are two things Hollywood loves right now, it’s 1990s nostalgia and reviving dormant properties. In that light, it’s probably just a matter of time before someone, somewhere, makes another attempt to bring back the iconic animated comedy Beavis and Butt-Head. Series creator Mike Judge, for one, thinks it could happen. Although this time, there could be […]
