Hayden Panettiere as surprised as the rest of us by 'Heroes' revival

18 April 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) NBC in February trumpeted a 2015 revival of "Heroes" as an “event miniseries,” the network teased the involvement of creator Tim Kring and the possible return of some of the original cast. The announcement came as a surprise not only to the sci-fi drama’s fans and detractors, but also at least one of its stars. “Well, it was a shock to me, and, in fact, I believe I became privy to that through my cousin,” Hayden Panettiere, who played cheerleader Claire Bennet for all four seasons of the series, tells Cosmopolitan. “She sent me a text message and told me about it, and, I mean, we had nothing, nothing to do with it; it will definitely be interesting to see how they reinvent that.” Planned as a 13-episode standalone story arc, details of "Heroes Reborn" are, in the network’s words, “shrouded in secrecy.” However, the presumption, by Panettiere and others, »

USA Network is shaking off its long-standing blue-skies approach to programming with a slate of edgier serialized dramas planned for later this year.

During tonight’s finale of “Suits,” viewers will get a sneak peek at “Rush,” slated for a third-quarter bow. “Rush,” from Fox 21, stars Tom Ellis (“EastEnders”) as a hard-partying on-call Hollywood doctor who’ll treat any ailment – as long as his clients can pay his cash-only premium.

The cable net is also planning late 2014 debuts for the event-series “Dig,” from executive producers Tim Kring (“Heroes”) and Gideon Raff (“Homeland”), starring Jason Isaacs and Anne Heche, as well as the provocative “Satisfaction,” from executive producer Sean Jablonski and starring Matt Passmore and Stephanie Szostak as a married couple in crisis.

Foreign Productions Dig Jerusalem Because of Mayor’s Film-Friendly Policies

14 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Holy Jerusalem and sin-ridden New York may not have much in common, but that didn’t stop Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, the high-tech millionaire turned two-term civil servant, from reaching out to Gotham counterpart Michael Bloomberg several years ago when Barkat was trying to learn the ropes of the movie business.

New York, after all, has defied its own congestion and sky-high real estate costs to become a magnet for film and television production, and Barkat, a close friend of the former mayor, thought he could beat the same kind of odds in Israel’s contentious capital. Jerusalem, he felt, had all the elements of a good filming location — breathtaking scenery, mild weather and plenty of creative brainpower — but it lacked infrastructure, and its global reputation as a political hot spot made it a risky bet.

Cut to 2014, and it seems Barkat has learned well. Producers Gideon Raff (“Homeland”) and »

‘Heroes’ Tim Kring, Zak Kadison And Bradley Thomas Launch Imperative To Exploit Fast Shifting Platforms

Exclusive: Heroes creator Tim Kring has joined forces with Blacklight founder Zak Kadison and longtime Farrelly brothers producer Bradley Thomas to form Imperative Entertainment, a production company launched with financing from Dan Friedkin and his Friedkin Group. The Houston-based entrepreneur made his fortune through automotive and other ventures, and he will fully finance a company designed to use the trio’s skills and relationships to exploit seams in a fast-changing industry. This, they hope, will provide a strong alternative for content creators who want to develop material across multiple platforms including television, movie, video game, books, comics and new media.

Whether You Want It Or Not, Heroes Has Been Reborn

27 February 2014 3:25 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Well, I think it’s about time I put my foot in my mouth when it comes to Heroes. In the past, I would never hesitate to speak my mind about what I really thought of that series. It wasn’t the first TV show about people with special abilities and it won’t be the last, but it definitely had the most impact. It started strong – who doesn’t remember “Save the girl, save the world”? – but it floundered quickly. It’s audience steadily declined in accordance to the decline of quality until the series was cancelled in 2010 during its fourth season. But time apparently heals all wounds and NBC is ready to give Heroes another chance.

NBC aired the below announcement teaser for what it’s called Heroes Reborn. In the vain of 24: Live Another Day, this resurrection will be a 13-episode miniseries, functioning as a standalone arc. »
