Ricky Church reviews the ninth episode of Hannibal season 3…
Hannibal’s latest episode, ‘And The Woman Clothed With The Sun’, did not waste any time as it opened right up with Will going to Hannibal for information. From there, the rest of the story moved quickly without sacrificing character development or significant plot points.
It was very satisfying to finally see Will and Hannibal’s traditional relationship play out on the show. Their new relationship dynamic was on full display as Will refused to get too comfortable with Hannibal, referring to him as Dr. Lecter throughout their conversations. Hannibal, on the other hand, kept prodding and taunting Will for information on his personal life to get under his skin. While he’s still clearly bitter towards Will, it seems like he was genuine when he told him to stay away from the Tooth Fairy case.
On that note, we discovered »

The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
As the critical acclaim and commercial audience for television has increased over the years, the demand for festivals dedicated to television, outside of over-arching festivals such as the San Diego Comic-Con, has proportionally increased.

Conducted by the Paley Center for Media, the newest incarnation of the event is poised to be held once again in Los Angeles, running in September 2015 from the 9th to the 17th, and now the first wave of the lineup for the event has been announced.
Things will get kicked off on the 9th with two shows from NBC. The two panels from the channel will be for Truth Be Told and Undateable, with the Truth Be Told panel including castmembers Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tone Bell, and Vanessa Lachey, among others. The Undateable panel shall include »

It looks like William Friedkin’s cult crime thriller To Live and Die in L.A. is heading to the small screen, with Wgn America snapping up the rights to a TV adaptation, which Friedkin will direct and executive produce along with Oscar-winning scriptwriter Bobby Moresco (Crash).
The MGM Television project is expected to go straight-to-series once the script is ready and approved, and is described as “a reimagining” of the film and “an intense immersion into the inner workings of the Secret Service and a cat-and-mouse chase through the dark underbelly of the City of Angels.”
Released in 1985, To Live and Die in L.A. helped to launch the careers of several actors, including the likes of William Peterson, Willem Dafoe and John Turturro, and told the story of a secret service agent out to bring down a counterfeiter who killed his partner.

The 1985 MGM cult movie To Live and Die in La is being adapted into a television series.
Friedkin will direct the series, which is reportedly expected to go straight-to-series pending script approval, while Moresco will write, with both men serving as the series' executive producers.
The series is described as "an immersion into the inner workings of the Secret Service", as well as a cat-and-mouse chase through the dark underbelly of Los Angeles.
The adaptation of To Live And Die In La will be a reimagining of Friedkin's original film, which is also based on Petievich's »
William Peterson, Willem Dafoe, and John Pankow starred in the original film which followed two Secret Service agents on the trail of a counterfeiting operation in Los Angeles. It was based on the novel of the same name by former Secret Service officer Gerald Petievich.
Friedkin is tipped to direct the pilot and executive produce the series based upon ideas he hatched with "Crash" co-writer Robert Moresco. Moresco will script the series and also act as an executive producer.
If the first batch of scripts are well received by Wgn and producers MGM Television and Tribute Studios, the show could go straight to series. No casting has been announced for the show.

When Jon Voight agreed to take the role of Mickey on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” he was enthusiastic about being a part of a capable ensemble and didn’t give any thought to where his name might land in the credits.
“I’m a real character actor. I like stutters and limps,” says Voight, who built a career on playing leading men in films like 1969’s “Midnight Cowboy” and 1978’s “Coming Home,” for which he won an Oscar. “Every role is a character, and some of the characters are enjoyable to me because they’re so crazy. So Mickey’s perfect. I was fortunate to meet with him at this juncture.”

Romance has always been the force that drives the PBS period drama “Downton Abbey.” This season’s most sizzling storyline wasn’t about widowed Mary Crawley’s (Michelle Dockery) secret getaway with a potential new spouse, but the surprisingly lively love lives of her grandmother, Violet (Maggie Smith), and mother-in-law, Isobel (Penelope Wilton).
“I think people have emotional lives until they, on the whole, die or at least get too old to care,” says “Downton” creator and writer Julian Fellowes. “I don’t see why a woman like Isobel Crawley, who has been widowed quite young and is still certainly in late middle age — the idea that it would be not be appropriate to have any love interest is something I just don’t understand. We all know these (older, single) women in our own lives … they’re still capable of a romantic story, they’re still capable of a relationship. »

'The Contender' movie hero: Joan Allen as the virtuous Sen. Laine Hanson. 'The Contender' movie: Exceptional Joan Allen in intriguing but ultimately wimpy political drama "Principles only mean anything when we stick by them when they're inconvenient," says Senator Laine Hanson, played by Joan Allen in Rod Lurie's The Contender. Senator Hanson should know. In Lurie's political drama, the poor Democratic senator is grilled by a Republican inquisitor with a bad hairdo (Gary Oldman) who wants to prevent at all costs her being confirmed as the next Vice President of the United States. Even if that means destroying Hanson's political career by making public the senator's alleged participation in an orgy during her college days.* Now, why such hatred? Well, the Republican watchdog is certain that the U.S. president (Jeff Bridges) has chosen Sen. Hanson because of her gender instead of her qualifications for the job. Adding insult to injury, »

The ratings giant looks to life after its hit show CSI with an attempt to muscle into the superhero genre and an intergenerational comedy starring James Brolin
CBS has been the most-watched network in the country for years, but now it is seeing its ratings in the coveted 18-to-49 year-old demographic wither as shows such as The Walking Dead and Empire eat away at their lead. But since CBS already has a winning formula, it’s not really messing with it. There are just a few tweaks in their new fall schedule, which they plan to unveil Thursday at their upfront presentation, where they preview their new shows to advertisers like the spokesmodels on The Price Is Right show off a new car.
One of the biggest changes will be the end of CSI, the procedural that has been a tent pole for the network for 15 years and was, at one point, »
