Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show is the first ever, feature length documentary film to highlight the fascinating world of U.S. television showrunners and the creative forces aligned around them. These people are responsible for creating, writing and overseeing every element of production on one of the United State’s biggest exports – television drama and comedy series. The film shows audiences the huge amount of work that goes into making sure their favourite TV series airs on time as well as the many challenges that showrunners have to overcome to make sure a new series makes it onto the schedules at all.
I watch a lot of television. Probably unhealthy amounts actually, but that isn’t important right now. The point I am »

Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow (land, that is) is going to see the sun of box-office success. The teaser trailer for Tomorrowland, the secretive sci-fi project from Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, was the most viewed coming attraction on Youtube for the week ending Oct. 13. The movie about an aging inventor (George Clooney), a curious teen (Britt Robertson) and a fantastic invention (we think) notched 6 million views in its first week, according to technology firm Zefr which tracks the numbers. The first look at the project (which was originally titled 1952) and opens in

If you happen to follow a decent number of TV critics on Twitter, you may have noticed a minor eruption of late. A schism has emerged, prompted by accounts like The Cancellation Bear, which concerns itself solely with the topic of whether or not series are likely to survive based on current ratings patterns. That may sound perfectly innocent on its own, but quite a few admirers have expressed the notion that they refuse to dive into a series if they get the sense that it will come to a premature end, thereby robbing them of closure. This idea has, naturally, left many critics incensed: isn’t TV a medium founded on chaos, on the thrill of working within limitations and at the whims of fickle audiences? Moreover, isn’t it silly to always want tidy resolution in the context of such an inherently complicated medium? -

The New York Comic Con marked the true arrival of director Brad Bird's new film Tomorrowland upon the global conscience. While the picture won't be out until May 22nd, we hadn't seen anything from the film at all until the trailer and poster popped up at Nycc and Bird (along with co-writer Damon Lindelof) started doing press. During that press Bird was asked what it was like to have to turn down Star Wars: Episode VII in order to work on his new film with George Clooney. What's even more interesting about this exchange is that it seems like Bird was also up for Episode VIII if you break down the timetable of his comments. Hit the jump for more on Brad Bird and Star Wars: Episode 7, which J.J. Abrams is of course currently shooting. The film stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Harrison Ford, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, »

“Guys, where are we?” At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, "Lost Changed My Life In More Ways Than I Can Count," in which I revisit the 10th anniversary of Lost's premiere and look at how my life has changed in the time since the show first began. I saw the pilot episode of Lost a few months before it premiered on ABC exactly 10 years ago today — on Sept. 22, 2004. I was working in television development at the time, and a box of pilots — they may have even been on VHS tapes — had just arrived from a talent agency. My co-workers and I gathered in a tiny, cramped office to sort through the 30–40 screeners, most with titles and premises now forgotten, to find our copy of Lost. Damon Lindelof was an unknown name to us then, but we were addicted to Alias, the trippy espionage drama from Lost co-creator J.J. Abrams, »

Brad Bird only makes great movies. If you're not familiar with his name, he directed The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, and Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol. So when Disney announced Bird would be helming Tomorrowland (which is scripted by Bird, Jeff Jensen and Lost alum Damon Lindelof), you could have told me it was about a man's quest to get a bowl of soup and it would have been one of my most anticipated films of the year. Thankfully, he decided to tell a different story, and it's a big budget sci-fi movie that stars George Clooney and revolves around “a bright, optimistic teen (Britt Robertson) bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment who embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as ‘Tomorrowland.’” The other day at New York Comic-Con, »

This week Disney revealed the first official look at its very mysterious Tomorrowland project and it sounds very weird and very ambitious. Just when theme park rides getting turned into a movies was starting to feel normal, the studio has to go and adapt a theme park "land" into a film. However, my struggle with that concept was put on hold when I started to actually read the details provided by director Brad Bird and screenwriter Damon Lindelof. One of Bird's quotes in particular stood out: “We begin our movie asking what did [the future] used to be? What’s good about the future and what’s scary about it? And we wrestle with those things in a slightly mythical way.” When Walt Disney oversaw the creation of the first Tomorrowland at...

We may be a little light on movies at New York Comic-Con this year, but Walt Disney Studios decided to go big by unveiling some never-before-seen material from Tomorrowland.

A talented group is behind "Tomorrowland," which Disney brings to theaters in May 2015 and finally has a trailer (below). Directed by Pixar whiz Brad Bird, who co-wrote the script with comic book writer Jeff Jensen and "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof. Disney is surely betting high on this time travel science fiction adventure, starring George Clooney (whose purpose here remains unclear in the trailer), Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie, Kathryn Hahn, Tim McGraw (oh?) and Judy Greer. The top-secret film has been in the works since 2011, and much of it was filmed in and around Disney properties. »

While mum was the word at the Tomorrowland panel at New York Comic Con, a never-before-seen clip screened at the show shines a bit of light on Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof's latest mystery box of a film. Bird and Lindelof started off the panel discussing the film's origin but quickly segued into the film's first teaser trailer. The project became Tomorrowland, which is about ... well, Lindelof and Bird are reticent to say just about anything, keeping the film shrouded in as much mystery as possible to preserve what they call a "discovery" movie. To help not tell the crowd much, »

The first teaser sees Casey coming across a special coin while being discharged from a police station, with the item instantly transferring her to a golden field every time it is touched.

Though Disney is continuing their “brand-deposits” with a story that just barely ties into their theme parks, the first trailer for the sci-fi Tomorrowland might just be the making of a new live-action Disney franchise on par with the Pirates movies. George Clooney stars in Brad Bird’s film along with Hugh Laurie, Tim McGraw, Kathryn Hahn, Judy Greer and the young Britt Robertson, who plays a troubled teen who finds a pin that transports her to a new world. With it, she and Clooney try to unearth the secrets to this place known only as Tomorrowland. The screenplay comes from Bird and Lost’s Damon Lindelof and is looking at a May 22, 2015 release. Watch the teaser below:

New York – New York Comic-Con 2014 started strong with the first panel on the main stage hosted by Disney for their upcoming films "Big Hero 6" and "Tomorrowland." It did not disappoint. We know a whole lot about "Big Hero 6," but "Tomorrowland," which is directed by Brad Bird and stars Britt Robertson and George Clooney, is much more of a mystery and consequently had people much more on the edge of their seats during the panel. They were ready for that, and opened with "Big Hero 6." When the time did come for "Tomorrowland" though, there were a number of surprises, and a number puzzle pieces were revealed. So, without further ado, here's what we learned: The secrecy hasn't been to frustrate as much as to not have things get spoiled That is what Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof told us at the outset of the panel. It is also the »

In hot pursuit of yesterday’s first look, Disney has dropped a teaser trailer for sci-fi adventure, Tomorrowland. After being shrouded in secrecy since production began, the excitement surrounding Brad Bird’s latest pic appears to be completely justified.
The film is written by Bird (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) and Prometheus scribe Damon Lindelof, and this first trailer hints at the utopian world of its title, while honing in on Britt Robertson’s leading gal, Casey. Described as a “bright, optimistic teen,” she happens upon a magical pin which transports her to another dimension called Tomorrowland. The location of which is entirely unknown – but who cares when their technology involves jetpacks?!
Along to escort her into this “enigmatic place” is George Clooney’s grizzled former genius, Frank. Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson all co-star.
Thankfully, there are no major reveals in the brief preview. »

What if there was a secret place where nothing is impossible?
That is the concept behind the sci-fi adventure film Tomorrowland. Rebellious teen Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) shares a common destiny with former boy-genius and inventor Frank Walker (George Clooney). Together they embark on a mission to unlock the secrets of Tomorrowland, a place that exists within the time and space of collective memory. In the first teaser that has been released for the film, we get a brief glimpse at Casey’s introduction to this mystical place of being and Frank in an Oz the great and powerful sort of position.
The Disney film is directed by Brad Bird (Ratatouille, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol) and co-written by Bird and “Lost” scribe Damon Lindelof.

Yesterday, Disney unveiled the first pictures from Tomorrowland, featuring a grizzled George Clooney and a curious Britt Robertson. With the film getting its latest push at the New York Comic-Con, the first teaser trailer has now arrived. Filmmakers Brad Bird, Damon Lindelof and Jeff Jensen have clearly asked the marketing bods to keep to the “tease” part of the promo’s title, though we actually see more than anyone expected at this stage. If you’re still planning to go in without knowing too much, you may want to skip to the end.The first footage introduced Robertson’s Casey Newton, a troubled young woman who is getting out of a police lock up. Included amongst the personal items returned to her is a mysterious pin she doesn’t recognize – one that appears able to transport her to the titular world, a place where, we’re told, “nothing is impossible. »
