Interview: 'Battle Creek' star Kal Penn on 'House' reunions and pot differentiation

5 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Kal Penn is walking a different beat in the CBS police dramedy "Battle Creek," but this is in many ways a return for him. You might not necessarily remember, but Penn has been working in the CBS family steadily since he ended his sabbatical working for the White House. He followed a recurring arc on "How I Met Your Mother" with a regular role on the short-lived "We Are Men" before landing on "Battle Creek," which was created by Vince Gilligan, but is run by David Shore. Shore, of course, worked with Penn during his multi-season run as the ill-fated Dr. Lawrence Kutner on Fox's "House," a series that appears on the resume of many of the "Battle Creek" scribes. And when one of the first things we learn about Penn's Detective Fontanelle is that he's a user of medicinal marijuana, which ties Font in with Penn's long and beloved »

Battle Creek Season 1 Review

11 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review was based off the first episode of season one, which was provided to us prior to broadcast.

When looking at CBS’s current drama lineup, it’s easy to see how Battle Creek will make a nice fit by virtue of standing out. In the network’s primetime-programming block, you’ll find no shortage of vics and perps, but a distinct scarcity of comedy. Five of its seven weekly 10PMs are already filled by crime-focused spinoffs, literary adaptations, or paranoia thrillers, so for CBS to round out the numbers with yet another cop show makes sense. The network is nonpareil when it comes to dredging up dead bodies, but with Battle Creek, it tries to run down a few Sunday night laughs, with inconclusive results.

Occupying a space somewhere between the reformatted familiarities of CSI: Cyber and NCIS: Los Angeles, and original-enough ventures like Blue Bloods and Person of Interest, »

Mom's Allison Janney on Bonnie's 'Life and Death' Stakes After Alvin's Demise

17 hours ago | | See recent news »

For two seasons now, Allison Janney has found big, unexpected laughs in Bonnie Plunket’s struggle for sobriety on CBS’ Mom.

This week, however, her character discovers a new type of intoxication: “Instead of getting drunk with alcohol,” Janney teases, “she gets drunk with her newfound power and status as secretary of her AA meeting.”

TV Review: ‘Battle Creek’

20 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A bit of an outlier for CBS, “Battle Creek” has about as much heft as the prize in a box of cereal, yet it’s also a great deal of fun. A long-dormant, pre-“Breaking Bad” script from Vince Gilligan provides the foundation for this lighthearted series produced under the stewardship of “House’s” David Shore, with Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters well cast as mismatched lawmen. Tonally similar to “Picket Fences,” the concept becomes a bit more mundane as the episodes progress. At least initially, though, the mix of quirky comedy and drama seems nicely suited to its post-“The Good Wife” precinct.

Winters plays Det. Russ Agnew, the standout cop on an underfunded force in the relatively quiet confines of Battle Creek, Mich., whose world is turned topsy-turvy by the arrival of Special Agent Milton Chamberlain (Duhamel), the straight-out-of-central-casting FBI operative stationed there.

He’s part philosopher, part charmer, »

Interview: 'Battle Creek' star Josh Duhamel on his character's secrets and lies

25 February 2015 11:17 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In a visual flourish courtesy of pilot director Bryan Singer, Special Agent Milton Chamberlain is introduced in the world of "Battle Creek" from a low angle. Above his head, a circle of lights forms a halo.  Milt Chamberlain is an angel. Milt Chamberlain is a boy scout. Milt Chamberlain is a golden boy. But Milt Chamberlain isn't exactly what he seems to be. Or at least Battle Creek Pd Detective Russ Agnew (Dean Winters) is convinced that Chamberlain isn't what he seems to be. But every time Russ thinks he's uncover the dark secret that his new partner is hiding, we discover that the secret isn't really the truth.  It's a reluctant partnership that forms the spine of "Battle Creek," a quirky, surprisingly funny procedural that was created by "Breaking Bad" maestro Vince Gilligan and then developed as a series by "House" maestro David Shore.  Our first impression of Chamberlain, »

'Battle Creek' Stars Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters Reveal Their Favorite Buddy Cops of All Time

25 February 2015 1:59 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters are the latest stars to step into a cop drama in Battle Creek, only this one promises to be a bit quirkier than your usual network TV procedural. The pair chatted with ETonline about what sets their new CBS series apart.

"What I loved about the script is that it felt like the shows I grew up watching," Duhamel said. "It differs from what's out there in that it's a little bit more tongue and cheek. The crimes that you see on this show you won’t see on other shows. They're just a little bit abstract."

Sony Pictures Shakeup: TV Side Snubbed Again (Analysis)

24 February 2015 3:39 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

News of Tom Rothman’s promotion to head the film division at Sony Pictures Entertainment puts to rest questions about a broader studio restructuring in the wake of Amy Pascal’s exit as co-chair of Spe.

There had been speculation that Sony Pictures Television president Steve Mosko would benefit from post-Pascal changes, but the structure laid out Tuesday does not indicate that there are plans to replace her in the co-chairman role.

News of Rothman’s appointment as chairman of Sony’s motion picture group also came with the confirmation that Michael Lynton has extended his contract as chairman-ceo of Spe and as CEO of the Sony Entertainment parent org encompassing Sony Music. Mosko will continue to report directly to Lynton.
