21th Century Fox’s European Pay-tv Giant Sky Ups Its Content Game

27 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rupert Murdoch’s recently reconfigured Sky paybox looks to have the makings to become a new force in the international TV drama landscape as it begins to flex its pan-European muscles.

At its foundation are 24 million subscribers and $16.7 billion in revenues created through the 2014 merger of the U.K.’s BSkyB and its sister companies in Italy and Germany. It has adopted a multiterritory release strategy, a la Netflix, for certain high-end (and pricier) projects and, to compete in international TV’s current scripted-content arms race, it has greenlit more complex productions aimed to travel.

“There are budgetary, logistical and temporal hurdles to be overcome before the new Sky can be viewed in the same way as an HBO or an AMC can,” cautioned London-based TV analyst Anna Stuart of research firm Ihs Technology, noting that the company still faces challenges as it seeks to become a major player. “But »

Just hours after the female lead role in Fox's Minority Report TV series went to Meagan Good, Stark Sands has landed the male lead, playing the dual roles of precog twins Dash and Arthur.

25 February 2015 6:59 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One question about Fox's upcoming drama pilot "Minority Report" has been answered - they're happy to recast the main roles from the Spielberg film.

Deadline reports that Laura Regan ("They," "Mad Men") is set to take on the role of Agatha, the most gifted of the three pre-cogs, in the upcoming sci-fi procedural series set a decade after the end of the 2002 sci-fi feature.

In the series Dash, one of the three pre-cogs who were the key to the Precrime division in the film, now struggles to lead a 'normal' human life and remains haunted by visions of the future. He soon meets a detective, Lara Vega, who is haunted by her past who just might help him find a purpose to his gift.

Did the 2005 Oscars get it right?

18 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...

It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.

This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »
