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.

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 episode 1 recap “The Battle Creek Way”

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 »

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

26 February 2015 10:30 PM, PST | 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

26 February 2015 3:59 PM, PST | 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, »

TV Review: ‘Battle Creek’

26 February 2015 7:30 AM, PST | 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

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."
