The Case for Ann Dowd: Justin Theroux and Carrie Coon on Why the Lone ‘Leftovers’ Nominee Should Win

16 August 2017 2:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If Ann Dowd could have explained why “The Leftovers” was important three years ago, everyone within earshot would have been watching. But she didn’t know then. She had to live it first.

“Depending on the day, if someone asks me about Patti, I can’t get through the conversation,” Dowd said, in an interview with IndieWire. “You didn’t play those parts. You lived them.”

For three seasons, Dowd portrayed the confounding antagonist-turned-hero Patti Levin. She earned the series’ first and only Emmy nomination in 2017 (her second of the year, along with “The Handmaid’s Tale”).

“I think if you were to internally poll all of us — Justin, Carrie, [director and producer] Mimi [Leder], [music supervisor] Liza Richardson, the editors, and all the actors — and say, ‘The Leftovers’ is only going to get one nomination — and we’re taking [Outstanding Drama] Series off the table’ — I think everyone would’ve written down ‘Dowd,'” co-creator Damon Lindelof said. »

Showrunner Carlton Cuse Sets Rich Overall Deal With ABC Studios

16 August 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Carlton Cuse is returning to ABC Studios, setting a mammoth overall deal with the Disney division where he spent six seasons shepherding “Lost” with Damon Lindelof.

The four-year pact, valued in its entirety in the low eight-figures, puts Cuse in a league with the richest showrunner deals in town.

Cuse will launch a new production banner dubbed Genre Arts, and he has recruited longtime Amblin TV executive Lindsey Springer to serve as president. Cuse will focus on collaborating with other writers and creatives to bring projects to fruition. The company will be based on the Disney lot.

The prolific showrunner has spent the past half-decade prospering as a free agent without a formal studio deal. He launched three successful cable dramas in A&E’s “Bates Motel,” FX’s “The Strain” and USA’s “Colony,” and he has Amazon’s reboot of “Jack Ryan” set to bow next year. At Hulu, Cuse »

'The Dark Tower' Really Might Be Unadaptable

6 August 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Considering how many times the work of Stephen King has been adapted for film and TV over the past 40 years, it may seem surprising that it’s taken this long for The Dark Tower to make the jump. As can happen with some titles, The Dark Tower has been through various filmmakers’ hands and studios in the last decade alone; in 2007, a film adaptation was going to be directed by J.J. Abrams and written by Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof of Lost, and a few years after, Ron Howard was going to take the helm. The just-released feature film, »

‘The Leftovers’: Stunning Visual Effects Reel Reveals the Artistry in Every Aspect of the Series

2 August 2017 10:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s been nearly two months since HBO’s “The Leftovers” concluded its dramatic final season, but we still can’t get enough of Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta’s cerebral thriller. Hailed as one of the best written shows on television, but also the most visually stunning, it’s no wonder that the visual effects used in “The Leftovers” would reveal a few hidden gems.

Fan Favorites and Returning Characters Make Up Emmy Guest Star Line-Up

2 August 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Today’s television showrunners must throw the best dinner parties. Or at least they sure do know how to make a good guest list. From Alison Wright on FX’s “The Americans” and Hank Azaria on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” who are returning to series in roles where they had become fan favorites, to Matthew Rhys and Riz Ahmed, who each had standout work on HBO’s “Girls,” this year’s four Emmy categories for guest talent are stocked with nominees whose work has set the Twittersphere ablaze. The nominations also show that when voters like a show, they really like it, either giving blocks of nominations to actors from series such as “Saturday Night Live” and “This Is Us,” or recognizing an outstanding newcomer like Shannon Purser as part of the 18 nominations freshman series “Stranger Things” received.

“It’s human to want to be liked and seek affirmation,” says Wright, who »

The Dark Tower: Stories of Conflict And Confusion During Production

1 August 2017 4:45 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Stephen King wrote the first Dark Tower novel (The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger) in 1982, and Hollywood has been flailing to adapt it as a feature film ever since. King published 11 books prior to Gunslinger -- three of those works already made into films (Carrie, The Shining, Creepshow) -- and 14 more adaptations in the pipeline by the end of the decade. The '80s were a good time to be Stephen King!

King has since penned six more Dark Tower novels, which has resulted in an epic, dense, and sprawling sci-fi, horror, fantasy, Western that has only proven more challenging to adapt. Many have tried, including J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Damon Lindelof (World War Z), and current producer Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind). After several decades of starts and stops, this Friday we'll finally see director Nikolaj Arcel's vision of Roland Deschain (Idris Elba) and the Man »

HBO president talks Watchmen plans, series could include original material

30 July 2017 12:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago we brought you some comments from Damon Lindelof, who responded to the reports linking him to an HBO TV adaptation of Watchmen by stating that he’s had no talks with the cable network.

Well, it seems that may not be quite the case after all, judging by the latest remarks from HBO president Casey Bloys when asked by IGN about how a closed narrative such as Watchmen could serve as an ongoing series rather than a single season.

“I don’t want to talk too much about it, but Damon is thinking about it in a way exactly as you describe it,” Bloys said. “Which is, how do you take the material and derive from it a TV show, without making it a literal translation? Damon is one of the smartest, most passionate, most thorough writers I’ve ever worked with so he’s really »

Damon Lindelof says he’s had no talks with HBO about a Watchmen series

27 July 2017 3:43 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in June, a rumour emerged claiming that HBO was taking a second stab at developing a Watchmen series, after its first attempt with director Zack Snyder failed to get off the ground in 2014. This latest report claimed than Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers) was spearheading the adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ seminal comic book series, but according to Lindelof himself, he’s yet to have any talks with the cable network.

“All I can say at this time is, as of right now I haven’t had any meetings at HBO about Watchmen,” Lindelof tells TV Line. “I’ve been very vocal about my love for those 12 issues that eventually became a graphic novel, that they were completely and totally inspiring for all the storytelling that I did subsequently, and that I owe a debt to it. So is that piece of material something that’s really interesting to me? »

HBO’s Watchmen Adaptation Likely To Include Original Material

27 July 2017 8:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sometimes, the management of information released to the media about future television projects can go awry – and that’s exactly what seems to be happening with HBO’s small screen adaptation of Watchmen.

Published by DC Comics from 1986 to 1987, Watchmen is the work of Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons and John Higgins – and was previously adapted for cinema by Zack Snyder in 2009. The adaptation planned by HBO will take a different approach to the material, though – in spite of contradicting reports on who will deliver the final project.

Firstly, the HBO series has been in development for some time – but momentum has recently seemed to increase with the news that Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers) had been recruited to develop it. In recent days, however, Lindelof has cast doubt on the accuracy of that. In conversation with TV Line, he states that the first he heard of it was when he »

'The Dark Tower': Everything You Need to Know About the Stephen King Fantasy Epic

27 July 2017 7:22 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Back in the long-ago age of 1978, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction published a novella called The Gunslinger by Stephen King, who at the time had just rocketed from obscurity to the best-seller list with his books Carrie, 'Salem's Lot, The Shining and The Stand. Already regarded as a master of horror fiction, the author proved just as adept at epic fantasy, telling a story about an archetypal western hero named Roland, on a quest through a mystical desert on a ravaged parallel Earth, in pursuit of a »

HBO's Watchmen May Not Be Sticking To The Original Storyline

27 July 2017 6:45 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

HBO is currently developing a Watchmen series helmed by Damon Lindelof. Based on the characters of Alan Moore's limited series published by DC Comics in 1986 and 1987. The artwork was handled by Dave Gibbons and the colors were done by John Higgins. In 2009, Zack Snyder released the feature film Watchmen. Then again in 2012 DC Comics published a series of comic books titled Before Watchmen that served as a prequel to the original series; strangely this series did not have the input of any of the original creators. Currently the Watchmen (specifically Dr. Manhattan) are being used to help restore the DC Universe by essentially blaming Manhattan for a lot of the changes that were made post Flashpoint. We will see them very soon again in Geoff John's stand alone mini series Doomsday Clock this November.

As far as HBO's adaptation, HBO president Casey Bloys told IGN in an interview »

Lost Co-Creator Damon Lindelof Continues To Fuel Hope Of A Revival

26 July 2017 3:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s only a matter of time, isn’t it?

We live in an age where Hollywood studios tend to be a little trigger-happy when it comes to the ol’ reboot, and in the TV realm alone, there are countless examples of networks blowing the dust off established properties in the hope of tapping into a built-in audience (see: The Exorcist, Bates Motel, Hannibal, Fargo). It’s a process that often yields varying degrees of success, but when it comes to Lost, ABC’s cult classic that stretched for six mind-bending seasons between 2004 and 2010, co-creator Damon Lindelof believes a revival isn’t off the table.

Per TV Line, the former showrunner touched base on the dormant series, and why he’s “curious” and “excited” to see what the future holds – regardless of whether he’s actively involved in the proposed reboot or not.

I’ve thought about it a lot. »
