Trailer for Fox’s baseball drama series Pitch

17 May 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fox has released a first trailer for the upcoming Baseball drama series Pitch, which we have for you here…

From executive producers Dan Fogelman (“Cars,” “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”) and Rick Singer (“Younger,” “American Dad”), Pitch is the dramatic and inspirational story of a young pitcher who becomes the first woman to play Major League Baseball. A beautiful, tough and gifted athlete, Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury, “Under The Dome”) is vaulted into instant fame when she’s called up by the San Diego Padres to make her Major League debut. Like any rookie, Ginny must prove herself to her teammates. Foremost among them is Mike Lawson (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, “Franklin & Bash,” “NYPD Blue”), the team’s ruggedly handsome star catcher. There’s instant chemistry between them, although neither dares admit it. After all, Mike is captain of the team and a few of his players don’t even want Ginny on the field. »

The Exorcist And Lethal Weapon TV Series Secure Full Seasons At Fox

11 May 2016 7:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hollywood’s seemingly insatiable rush for movie-inspired TV series continues today, with Fox officially handing out full season orders to the small-screen remakes of The Exorcist and Lethal Weapon.

Thrusting both projects into the network’s fall 2016-2017 slate, they’ll now be joining fellow dramas A.P.B. and Pitch, along with comedies Making History and The Mick making for six new properties in total.

Based on William Blatty’s seminal horror novel, The Exorcist will be directed by Rupert Wyatt – taking a break from big-budget affair following his turn in the Apes franchise – and penned by Jeremy Slater. Billed as a total reimagining of the 1973 classic, Fox’s TV series takes place “more than four decades after the movie, and returns in series format as a propulsive psychological thriller following two very different priests tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession.” Geena Davis is currently attached to star. »

18 April 2016 5:43 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This third week of April has some exciting home entertainment offerings for us genre fans, including the special edition releases of two cult classics I adore, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and The Stuff. An indie film I’ve been hearing about for a while now, Grimewave, also makes its way to DVD this Tuesday and while it may not be traditional horror, Oscar-winner The Revenant certainly has enough badassery contained within its cinematic frames to be worthy of mentioning this week, and it arrives on both Blu-ray and DVD on April 19th.

Other notable releases this week include Smothered (which features a ton of horror icons and was directed by John Schneider of Smallville and Dukes of Hazzard fame), 15 Till Midnight, Classroom 6, Ip Man 3, German Angst and She Wolf Rising.

“I just filmed my first car crash!”

It’s the fourth episode of ABC’s new thriller “The Catch,” the latest entry from Shondaland’s camp, and the director is excitedly recounting the weekend’s (mis)adventures to the assembled crew, regaling them with woes of rain and other production complications.
