We talk Galavant — and Alan Menken — with Joshua Sasse!

18 December 2014 10:17 AM, PST | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

And now for something completely different: A TV comedy that’s a little bit Disney romance and a whole lot Mel-Brooks-meets-Monty-Python reverie — all set to rollicking music by Disney’s celebrated song guy, Alan Menken. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Galavant, a four-week, star-studded musical hoot featuring Psych’s Timothy Omundson as King Richard and Joshua Sasse (Rogue) as the titular knight Galavant — a duo locked in tuneful, comical battle for the love of Madalena (Mallory Jansen), the savvy beauty who owns both their hearts. Or their hormones, at any rate. “A friend of mine said it’s a bit like The Princess … Continue reading →

Behind the Scenes With John Stamos on ABC's Daring Musical Comedy 'Galavant'

17 December 2014 4:57 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Et was with John Stamos as he suited up to guest star on ABC's upcoming musical comedy Galavant.

"They finally figured it out -- keep me in a strait jacket and I'll be fine," Stamos joked in his suit of armor costume.

News: John Stamos Was Sick of Being Uncle Jesse

The series is part fairytale, part Broadway musical that follows a dashing hero, Galavant (Joshua Sasse), who loses the love of his life, Madalena (Mallory Jansen), to the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson) and must take revenge to restore his "happily ever after." Stamos guest stars as Galavant's rival, Sir Jean Hamm.

As is the case with most fairytales brought to screen, the roles required the actors to break out their best English accents.

"I ended up somewhere between Richard Burton and Dick Van Dyke and Mary Poppins," said Stamos. "That was a challenge and I loved all the physical stuff. In this scene »

You'll Never Guess Who's Returning to Supernatural!

12 December 2014 3:54 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

A fan-favorite character is returning to Supernatural and we couldn't be more pumped about it. Later this season, fans will finally get to see the long-awaited return of Cain! Played by Psych alum Tim Omundson (who will be seen next on ABC's musical comedy Galavant), Cain—of the biblical story of Cain and Abel—was first introduced to the CW show last season in the episode, "First Born." Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Crowley (Mark Sheppard) tracked down the legendary killer when they were searching for the First Blade in order to kill Abaddon (Alaina Huffman). They more than succeeded in their mission in offing the Knight of Hell, but only because Cain passed off his Mark to Dean, »

Take Me To The Pilots '14: ABC's 'Galavant'

12 September 2014 10:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "Galavant" (ABC - Midseason) The Pitch: "It's 'Shrek' only live-action and without Shrek and without the magic, so maybe not that much like 'Shrek' at all." Quick Response: I'd like to think of the 22 minute pilot for "Galavant" as a poorly formed proof-of-concept and I wish ABC would now scrap everything but the songs and some of the cast and start again, probably with a different narrative and a different running time and probably some different actors and whatnot. Because I like the idea of "a medieval musical fairy tale" and the 22 minute pilot for "Galavant" suggests it's possible, but I wish creator Dan Fogelman, whose "The Neighbors" became much better as it went along but never recovered from the stench of its desperate pilot, wouldn't keep shooting himself in the foot with half-baked pilots for potentially great ideas. So "Galavant" is a half-hour of tell-me-don't-show-me exposition about how »

Spoiler Room is back! Get scoop on 'Supernatural,' 'Teen Wolf', more

1 August 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

I still remember the first time a spoiler truly failed me. It was the season 3 finale of The O.C., and I had read that someone was going to die. Everything I found online pointed to Sandy Cohen having a heart attack. The rumors crushed me to read—but after weeks of preparation, I was ready to try and come to terms with it. But as I sat on my couch, two minutes before the finale was scheduled to end, I realized that Sandy was nowhere to be seen. Instead, the show was focused on a car containing Ryan and Marissa. »

Comic-Con 2014 Interviews with Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, and Jeremy Carver

31 July 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Last weekend at Comic-Con, we joined a small group of journalists for an interview session with the main cast and executive producer of Supernatural. Stars Jared Padalecki (Sam), Jensen Ackles (Dean), Misha Collins (Castiel), and Executive Producer Jeremy Carver provided details on some of Season 9′s big moments and teased what we can expect from Season 10.

Executive Producer Jeremy Carver:

It seems like there are some excellent storytelling opportunities with the introduction of the Men of Letters Bunker. Do you plan on having a continued focus on that in Season 10?

When we introduced the Men of Letters, not just as a location, but one of the final pieces or the Winchester Family Tree, it opened up for the writers and enormous trove of possibilities. Yes, we’re always coming up with fantastic ways of looking at the Men of Letters and it’s become such a part of the »

Ten Best: Episodes of ‘Supernatural’

4 June 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The road so far …

It wasn’t exactly easy for genre television in 2005. Well, it’s really never been easy for genre television ever in the history of television, but in 2005, a deluge of genre shows premiered and almost all of them had fallen prey to the swift axe of the television gods by the next year. Start by thinking about television now. It’s a fruitful time for horror and science fiction and fantasy. There are a multitude of genre shows, running the gamut from The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, to True Blood and The Vampire Diaries. They’re all massive hits.

Now, think of all of the shows that premiered around that time in 2005. There was Surface, and that was cancelled after ten episodes by NBC. Invasion, a well-regarded show written by Shaun Cassidy (who created one of my favorite shows, American Gothic) and that was cancelled »

‘Supernatural’ Season Finale Ends with One Hell of a Cliffhanger (Spoilers)

21 May 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The CW’s “Supernatural” closed out its ninth season with a powerful — if not altogether surprising — finale on Tuesday night, leaving viewers teetering on the edge of a brutal cliffhanger that will assuredly shatter the show’s status quo when it returns for season ten this fall.

The episode’s final moments (Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched) saw heroic monster hunter Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) — one of the show’s two protagonists — return from death with the signature black eyes of a demon, tragically transforming him into one of the creatures he’s spent his life fighting. His brother Sam (Jared Padalecki), was too busy trying to summon the reinstated King of Hell, Crowley (Mark Sheppard at his scenery-chewing best), in an attempt to save Dean’s life, to realize that the cunning demon was already in the building, ready to welcome Dean into the ranks.

ABC Reveals Fall Schedule And Previews New Shows

15 May 2014 2:32 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Now that it is just barely summer, it’s time for the networks to try their best to get you excited for fall television. ABC wants you to get excited for their schedule, and their new shows, and I’ve got some previews for you, as well as some initial thoughts.

I have to tell you, ABC is looking more and more strange as time goes on, and the overall efforts of the network really have to make you wonder. While there are some hints of interesting shows, and one or two that might turn into worthwhile vehicles, in the Eddie and the Cruisers world of television, ABC is Joe Pantoliano, clutching his tapes, and furiously blathering about the lunacy of not giving the idiotic public what they want, especially since they keep demanding it.

To that end, ABC has declared Thursday, Shonda Rhimes night, largely because someone apparently had »

“Galavant”: Fall ABC Series Looks Like Fun — Probably Doomed

14 May 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

I’m not really sure what Disney executives were smoking when they decided to make Galavant into a series for ABC, but I do wish they’d share. It’s a comedy about a fairy tale prince (actor Joshua Sasse) seeking revenge against the evil king (Timothy Omundson) who stole his lady love. The biggest selling point: it’s a musical and Oscar winning composer Alan Menken is on board to work his typical Disney magic.

I have no idea who the market is for this. It’s probably not the female audience that tunes in to Once Upon a Time. And it’s not the stoned college students who live for Monty Python and the Holy Grail. And I don’t think the kids who love Disney’s G-rated musical fairy tale movies should be exposed to this. Not only is it not four-quadrant, it’s no quadrant.

Watch as knights and noblemen sing Alan Menken in ABC's 'Galavant' trailer

13 May 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If the success of "Game of Thrones" has taught us anything, it's that people love tales of knights and swords and derring-do.  If the success of "Once Upon a Time" has imparted a lesson, it's that people love updated fairytales.  And, if the success of Broadway's "Aladdin" (in the form of five Tony nominations) has provided any insight into the populace, it's that Alan Menken remains terribly popular.  What happens when you combine these three things?  You get a "musical comedy fairytale of epic proportions," and ABC has it as a part of their midseason lineup.  It is called "Galavant," and it features a sizable number of man clad in armor, singing.  Really. Perhaps then it could best be equated with Monty Python.  But however you want to understand it, what we will tell you about it is this – the show is from Dan Fogelman ("Tangled") and is about a »

8 May 2014 9:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After remaining quiet all spring, ABC monopolized the attentions of the nation's TV critics on Thursday (May 8) with an evening full of big announcements.  You can read about seven of the network's renewals here, as ABC extended its relationship with "Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy," "Modern Family" and more.
