NewFronts 2015: Hulu Snags ‘Walking Dead’ Spinoff in AMC Output Deal

29 April 2015 6:44 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hulu has secured an exclusive output deal with AMC Networks that will include all episodes of an upcoming series being spun off from TV’s top-rated hit, “The Walking Dead,” the company revealed at its NewFront presentation Wednesday.

The pact is the second major move Hulu made on the licensing front that unveiled this week. Leaking shortly before the Newfront event was news that Hulu has exclusively landed the entire run of “Seinfeld” from Sony Pictures Television in a mega-deal that could cost as much as $180 million. The episodes premiere in June.

“FX and AMC are the most important contributors to the new golden age of television,” said Hulu programming chief Craig Erwich, citing a previously announced deal with FX Networks. “Our competitors have some of their libraries, but we will have all of their future.”

Hulu did not specify any other series besides the spinoff — titled “Fear the Walking Dead »

TV Breaks Rules To Take Ads From Streaming-Video Rivals

6 April 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC’s broadcast of the Oscars is one of TV’s biggest annual events. And yet the Walt Disney-owned network allowed some of the show’s sponsors to suggest to viewers that traditional TV was not what they ought to be viewing.

Netflix ran a commercial during the telecast to tout one of its original streaming-video programs. Google’s Google Play, which allows for streaming of TV shows and movies on mobile devices, made a pitch. And on New York’s Wabc and Los Angeles’ Kabc, cable network AMC called attention to the coming final season of “Mad Men.”

The Oscars aren’t the only place where TV has allowed new-tech video rivals to take roost. NBCUniversal allowed Amazon last year to tout its series “Transparent” on E! and gave Netflix free rein to promote kid-focused series “All Hail King Julian” on pre-schooler network Sprout. The tagline? “Now Streaming.” The »

9 Reasons Why the 'X-Files' Revival Matters

27 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Admit it, millennials: When the news broke Tuesday that FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would be returning to the Fox network for a six-episode reboot of "The X-Files," many of you said, "Who are Mulder and Scully?" After all, the show has been off the air for 13 years. Since then, Gillian Anderson (Scully) moved to England and did period dramas, while David Duchovny (Mulder) became that creepy old lech on Showtime's "Californication," and "X-Files" creator Chris Carter went Mia and was apparently abducted by aliens.

Still, even if "The X-Files," its stars, and its creator haven't been pinging the cultural radar much in recent years, the return of the show with its original cast and showrunner on board is a huge deal. Much of what we now take for granted in pop culture -- especially on TV and online -- owes a tremendous debt to the 1993-2002 sci-fi drama series. »

Get Hard – The Review

26 March 2015 9:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It’s team-up time for twin titans of comedy once again . Actually one of the stars of this new film was attempting this just a couple of months ago. The in-danger-of-over-saturation star Kevin Hart made an attempt to broaden his fan base by joining up with another rising comic star, Josh Gad, In the modest hit (couldn’t have cost that much) The Wedding Ringer. Well it certainly worked for Kevin’s comic predecessors Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, and Chris Tucker. But this time out he’s truly going for it, making a run for the comedy big leagues, by teaming with an established superstar of laugh-filled flicks, Will Ferrell (sure he’s had some duds, but when he scores, he scores big). And this new film takes some hot-button current topics, and gives them a spin that may remind you of certain Pryor and Murphy classics. So, let’s »
