CBS Kills ‘Stalker’ & Renews 15 Returning Series; ‘CSI’ Finale Plans Still in Progress

11 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stalker” won’t live to see a second season. CBS has decided not to renew the freshman thriller, starring Dylan McDermott and Maggie Q, Variety has learned.

CSI” still awaits a decision for its season 16 series ender, but it has not been axed. The long-running procedural, which wrapped up its 15th round earlier this year, could get a short order, followed by a TV movie for its grand finale.

New spinoff “CSI: Cyber” will be returning for a second season. The Patricia Arquette starrer debuted this past March and airs its first season finale this week.

The network also handed renewals to “NCIS” and spinoff “NCIS: Los Angeles.” (The latest installment, “NCIS: New Orleans,” was previously picked up.) “Blue Bloods,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “Elementary,” “Person of Interest,” “The Good Wife” — which just wrapped its sixth season to a four-month ratings high — and “Criminal Minds” will also be back.

Last week, CBS ordered a “Criminal Minds” spinoff, »

Bryan Cranston & David Shore Pilot ‘Sneaky Pete’ Eyes Potential Cable Move

10 May 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

It is standard practice for studios to try and shop broadcast pilots that didn’t go forward. In the case of Bryan Cranston and David Shore’s drama Sneaky Pete, which just got a pass from CBS, I hear there have been incoming inquiries, with multiple cable networks expressing interest. It is too early to talk specifics, but it won’t be surprising if AMC is among the nets that would like to take a peek, given its relationship with Cranston, star of its hit series Breaking Bad… »

Dozens of TV Shows Cancelled as Networks Clean House

8 May 2015 4:40 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s house-cleaning time for the major networks as the cancellation ax falls in order to make for new additions in the fall.

Some shows, such as NBC’s “State of Affairs” and “Constantine,” have been off the air so long that it feels they’d already been cancelled. But the formal notice falls just as hard even when if it is long expected.

Among the big four networks, NBC got out the largest broom on Friday, a sign of the struggle it had this year with new series. “Marry Me,” “About a Boy,” “One Big Happy” joined earlier casualties “A to Z” and “Bad Judge.”

On the drama side, “Constantine” and Katherine Heigl’s comeback vehicle, “State of Affairs,” were formally terminated, as was “Allegiance” earlier in the year. The bell is also expected to ring soon for another drama, “American Odyssey.”

NBC was in the same boat that »

Battle Creek” is no more. CBS has canceled the cop drama, from “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan and “House” boss David Shore after one season punctuated by disappointing ratings. The network has also decided to pass on the pilot “Sneaky Pete,” which counts “Breaking Bad” alum Bryan Cranston as a co-writer and executive producer.

CBS Cancels David Shore-Vince Gilligan Drama ‘Battle Creek’

8 May 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS has lowered the ax on “Battle Creek,” the high-profile cop drama series that landed a rare straight-to-series commitment from the Eye on the strength of the auspices of David Shore and Vince Gilligan.

Shore also developed a pilot for the Eye, “Sneaky Pete,” that was co-written by Bryan Cranston, but that project isn’t moving forward either, sources said.

Meanwhile, the the rest of CBS’ bubble series are expected to be back, including fledgling comedy “The Odd Couple” and “CSI,” probably with a short order for a 16th and final season. “Hawaii Five-0″ had been on the fence but is expected to be back for season six.

Battle Creek,” from Sony Pictures TV, starred Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters as maverick cops working the mean streets of Battle Creek, Mich. Gilligan wrote the pilot script years ago, and it was revived shortly after “Breaking Bad” ended its run in »

‘Battle Creek’ Cancelled By CBS; Network Passes On ‘Sneaky Pete’

8 May 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

CBS has started to make calls on its bubble series. I hear midseason drama Battle Creek has been cancelled. There is no official word yet but CBS’ other bubble freshmen, drama Stalker and comedy The McCarthys, also are not expected to come back. There had been some talk that one of two CBS projects from David Shore and Sony TV, freshman Battle Creek or pilot Sneaky Pete, might go for next season. That appears not to be happening. I hear CBS also has passed on Sneaky Pete,… »

Pilot and Pickup Buzz: ‘Agent Carter,’ ‘Battle Creek,’ ‘Mysteries of Laura’ Await Decisions

6 May 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As the broadcast networks finalize pilot pickup decisions, a handful of this year’s freshman series are still awaiting the yea or nay for a season two.

ABC’s “Agent Carter” and NBC’s “The Mysteries of Laura” are said to be looking better for renewals but are not slam dunks. CBS’ “Battle Creek” may be on the rebound toward a second season order. “Cristela,” on the other hand, is likely heading for the exit at ABC. Same is true for “Marry Me” at NBC.

Among other returning series still on the bubble, the decision on “The Mindy Project” at Fox is going down to the wire. The end of the road is said to be coming at the network for “The Following.”

ABC’s “Last Man Standing” is living up to its name and is said to be getting a nod for season five. The betting is that CBS »

Vince Gilligan Developing 'Jack and the Beanstalk' Movie for Disney

23 April 2015 8:14 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is in talks with Disney to move forward with a film adaptation of the fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Gilligan penned the treatment for Beanstalk, described as a "revisionist take" on the familiar story of the young man, magic beans and a greedy giant. Gilligan will continue to serve as a producer on the film, while Thomas Schnauz — a co-executive producer on both Breaking Bad and its new spinoff Better Call Saul — will write the script.

Houdini and Doyle supernatural crime drama series coming to ITV and Fox

19 March 2015 9:31 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini's friendship is set to be explored in a new light on the small screen.

Houdini and Doyle is a ten-part supernatural crime drama inspired by the pair's real-life friendship, reports Deadline.

ITV has picked up the series in the UK, while Fox will air episodes in the Us, and Shaw Media will handle the show in Canada.

Illusionist Houdini and Sherlock Holmes writer Doyle found friendship via their mutual interest in spiritualism, although they had a bitter public fall-out when Doyle refused to believe that Houdini's stunts were simply illusions.

The series will see the duo work together on supernaturally-tinged crimes, despite their differences.

House creator David Shore is executive producer on the project alongside his former colleague David Hoselton, who will serve as writer. David Titcher (The Librarians) is also writing Houdini and Doyle.

19 March 2015 1:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sony Pictures TV has cooked up a new take on the supernatural for a new television series based on the unusual friendship between famous magician-illusionist Harry Houdini and prolific author Arthur Conan Doyle. Dubbed Houdini And Doyle, the 10-episode series has been sold to a number of global parties, including Fox (Us), ITV (UK) and Shaw Media (Canada).

All three are set to executive produce, with Titcher and Hoselton on scripting duties.

Here’s an overview of the series as described by Deadline:

Houdini and Doyle Heads to Fox

19 March 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Fox is going for oddball shows and their latest one may take the cake, Houdini and Doyle. The show will be based upon Harry Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s actual friendship they had in real life. The upcoming supernatural crime drama will show Doyle and Houdini solving crimes together for an epic 10 episode. So far we do not know who will star as either Houdini and Doyle yet. David Titcher and David Hoselton will write it, while David Shore will produce it. The show is expected to also air on U.K.’s ITV and Canada’s Shaw Media as well.

I am excited to learn more about this project. It will certainly be one of those shows that will be unique that nobody really knows what to expect from. That makes it interesting while also sort of scary. Since nobody knows what Harry and Arthur’s friendship was truly was, »

Josh Duhamel, Alice Eve Go Beyond Deceit

11 March 2015 7:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Josh Duhamel and Alice Eve have joined Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino in legal thriller Beyond Deceit, to be directed by scribe Shintaro Shimosawa (Fox’s The Following) in his directorial debut.

Malin Akerman, Byung-hun Lee, Glen Powell and Leah McKendrick will co-star in the pic, which centers on an ambitious young lawyer (Duhamel, replacing Dan Stevens after the latter actor dropped out over conflicts with Beauty and the Beast) who takes on a major case against the ruthless executive of a pharmaceutical giant, only to find himself framed for murder.

Eve will take on the supporting role of his wife, but it’s unclear whether Hopkins or Pacino will be playing the chief antagonist. Adam Mason and Simon Boyes (red-hot SXSW selection Hangman) penned the script, which Shimosawa then rewrote.

Beyond Deceit is just one more screen credit for Duhamel and Eve, who are each racking up tons right now. »

Battle Creek, Michigan has fallen on hard times and and the Police Department is feeling the pinch. But they’re about to be blessed with a savior and not everybody’s happy about that. CBS’ new drama, from Breaking Bad‘s Vince Gilligan and House‘s David Shore, opens on a play — young children in a variety of nature costumes are putting on an adorable show for an auditorium full of parents. A shadowy figure emerges from the back, approaches a man videotaping the play. He flashes a badge and grabs the camera. A small car hurtles around a corner and pulls up … Continue reading →

Series premiere talkback: 'Battle Creek'

1 March 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I published my review of CBS' "Battle Creek" on Friday. Now it's your turn. For those of you who tuned in tonight, what did you think? Did the pilot — whose script went largely unchanged from the version Vince Gilligan wrote a dozen years ago — feel like the work of the man who created "Breaking Bad," and/or who wrote some of the best "X-Files" episodes ever? Did you enjoy the rivalry between Dean Winters and Josh Duhamel? Did you want more from all the second and third banana Battle Creek cops? And will you watch again? Have at it. For what it's worth, the voice of the show doesn't change radically in the other episodes, even though David Shore is running things while Gilligan is otherwise occupied with "Better Call Saul," and there's also the sort of improvement you like to see in a new show as the creative team »

Interview: 'Battle Creek' star Dean Winters on nearly killing Josh Duhamel and more

1 March 2015 12:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In CBS' "Battle Creek," Dean Winters plays Detective Russ Agnew, a grouchy-but-determined Michigan law enforcement veteran who yearns for more and better resources, but isn't happy when support comes in the form of seemingly perfect FBI agent Milt Chambers (Josh Duhamel). It's an oft-retold story, but things almost went awry immediately between the two "Battle Creek" stars. "The first time I met Josh, I came in last March for rehearsal and I was lost and I was driving to the lot on Manhattan Beach and I was looking at my Gps and I literally came within a foot of running him over," Winters too me when we sat down together two weeks ago. "It’s like I almost killed my co-star without even meeting him. But he and I got along famously like off the bat." Winters was glued to his Gps because he's a New York City guy, born and bred, »

'Battle Creek': TV Review

1 March 2015 12:26 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In the end, Vince Gilligan’s brilliant Breaking Bad allowed him to finally sell the series idea for Battle Creek that he’d been pitching around town forever. And with Better Call Saul up and running as a spinoff of Breaking Bad, you could probably say that, despite the time lag, everything came up roses for Gilligan. That luck extends to Battle Creek landing at CBS, the absolute best network for developing the kind of broad-appeal cop drama that Battle Creek is and that co-executive producer and show runner David Shore (House) helps polish.

‘Battle Creek': Josh Duhamel & Dean Winters Enter Buddy-Cop Game

27 February 2015 5:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Battle Creek” is a new take on the buddy-cop genre, starring Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters. Hailing from “Breaking Bad’s” Vince Gilligan and “House M.D.” vet David Shore, the series bows March 1 on CBS.

The quirky drama is set in Battle Creek, Mich., population 50,000, where a jaded detective, Russ Agnew (Winters), reluctantly partners with charming FBI Agent Milt Chamberlain (Duhamel) to solve crimes. Shore, who serves as showrunner and exec producer, says the setting is one of the ways the show differentiates itself from others of its kind.

“In the writers room, if we came up with an idea that would be a great ‘Law & Order’ episode, we just didn’t do it,” Shore, who worked on the famed procedural show for two years, said on a recent conference call with Variety.

Shore explained that while the writers are looking for ideas more specific to a small community, that »
