The broadcaster's first foreign-language drama series in 20 years features zombies, murderers – and (horror) subtitles
There are no shortage of scares to be found in new Channel 4 drama The Returned. Zombies, for a start, along with a series of gruesome murders and a cannibalistic serial killer.
But the real shock, which once would have had viewers of a sensitive disposition hiding behind the sofa, is that The Returned is a subtitled French television series – the first foreign-language drama on Channel 4 since German epic Heimat 20 years ago.
Expected to be given a primetime slot when it launches next month, it is evidence of the changing attitudes towards subtitled drama that can be traced to the success of Danish murder mystery The Killing on BBC4, which has just announced its latest acquisition, the Belgian thriller Salamander.
Channel 4's chief creative officer, Jay Hunt, said subtitles were "no longer the turn-off »

Eon Productions is a British company that has been involved with almost every James Bond film since 1962.s Dr. No, and it.s rarely strayed from its 007 roots. Seeing as how there probably won.t be another Bond film until 2016, though, Eon is doing some branching out. ScreenDaily reports Eon.s Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are teaming with WestEnd and Neon Film to shop the romantic drama The Silent Storm around the Cannes Film Festival. Set to star in the film are Andrea Riseborough, who recently went sci-fi with Tom Cruise in Oblivion, and Damian Lewis, who is a major reason why Homeland is one of the best shows on television right now. The Silent Storm would be the first feature film for Corinna McFarlane, whose 2008 doc Three Miles North of Molkom was nominated for a BAFTA for Best British Documentary. She would direct from a script she »

Morena Baccarin's family life is so much better than Jessica Brody's. The Homeland star is expecting her first child with writer-director Austin Chick, People reports. There's no word yet on whether the 33-year-old Baccarin's pregnancy will alter the plot of Homeland's third season, which is currently in production...but wouldn't that be a delicious twist?! The Brazilian-born actress and Chick tied the knot in November 2011. "We are solid," she happily told Britain's Daily Mail just shy of their first anniversary last year.

Junie Lowry-Johnson and Libby Goldstein on how they found the hit Showtime series' five main actors. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) Junie Lowry-Johnson: If we’d said Damian’s name at the beginning, he wouldn’t have gotten much attention, because we were initially looking at well-known actors. Libby Goldstein: People we wanted didn’t want us. A lot of them passed — you’d be surprised who. J.L.J.: One actor really wanted to know whether Brody was a good guy. He didn’t want to play a bad one. L.G.: That’s why he didn’t get the part. Idiot. Also, we wanted someone who looked all-American. J.L.J.: Believable as having been a soldier. L.G.: And that could go on to politics. J.L.J.: We were scrambling, and someone had seen a movie called Keane [a 2004 drama about a father coping with his daughter’s abduction]. When we all saw that film, »

The decision to broadcast a compressed version of the TV awards later in the evening was problematic, not least because it played down the achievements of drama and documentary
Like a bad play about Shakespeare or a rotten pop song in honour of Elvis, the Bafta television awards have always suffered from a contradiction between content and subject-matter. Honouring the best programmes of the year, the televised ceremony is always at risk of being one of the worst things you'll see in any 12 months.
One of the problems has been excessive length and over-running but the show is now a strict two hours, with eight of the presentations now taking place in advance of transmission and only being shown in a very fast montage at the end of the main broadcast.
The consequence of this compression this year, though, which may encourage conspiracy theorists, is that the BBC got through »

One of the stars of BBC1's hit drama Last Tango in Halifax used the programme's Bafta win on Sunday to thank the corporation for "at last" doing a love story about people over 35.
In the face of criticism that the BBC fails to put enough women, or older people, on screen, Anne Reid, who starred with Derek Jacobi in the romantic drama written by Sally Wainwright, said: "I am so glad the BBC has decided at last to do love stories about people who are over 35."
Reid, 77, who accepted the Bafta award for best drama series, was warmly applauded by the audience of TV personalities and executives when she told them: "Some of us do have quite interesting lives when we get to 70."
Her co-star Jacobi said: "Not only the oldies »

22:03Well, that's just about it! Aside from quite an underwhelming performance from Graham Norton and a dodgy Tetris-esque stage, that was a throughly enjoyable evening if I may say so. Thanks for joining Digital Spy, and don't forget to write below who you think deserved to win and who was robbed. Goodnight, all!
