Jessica Biel USA Series ‘The Sinner’ Is 2017’s No. 1 New Cable Series in Delayed Viewing

14 August 2017 12:42 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jessica Biel’s freshman USA Network drama “The Sinner” is the number one new cable series of 2017, according to Nielsen delayed viewing data.

In Live+3 ratings, the series is number one in adults 18-49, adults 25-54, and total viewers, among new cable shows this year, excluding mini-series. Two episodes into its eight episode series run, the series grew in its second week in adults 18-49 by 7% to 1.4 million, adults 25-54 by 5% to 1.6 million, and adults 18-34 by 4% to 543,000. Over its first two episodes, the series is averaging 3.5 million viewers per episode.

Biel stars in the series as a young mother who, when out with her husband (Christopher Abbott) and son, commits a startling act of violence and has no idea why. Detective Ambrose (Bill Pullman) finds himself obsessed with uncovering the woman’s buried motive, which launches an investigation not into the who or what of the crime, but rather the why.

True Crime Tales Are on the Rise Across Broadcast and Cable

3 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

True crime has always been a part of TV in some form– newscasts, news magazines, TV movies, docu-series, as well as the inspiration for fictional scripted shows. But with the success of the podcast “Serial,” HBO’s “The Jinx,” Netflix’s “Making a Murderer” and FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” true crime content proliferates at a greater rate now than in the recent past.

“True crime used to be a staple in the TV movie business, which doesn’t really exist anymore,” says FX original programming president Eric Schrier. “We didn’t get into it for any specific reason. It was really about the material and the auspices.”

American Crime Story” executive producer Brad Simpson says true crime docu-drama on cable outlets for the past 10 years, coupled with the rise of the anthology limited series, gave rise to the current spree. And the current political and cultural state of the country may »

Los Angeles-Based TV Pilot Production Slides 14% to Seven-Year Low

2 August 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Television pilots shot in Los Angeles during the 2016-17 development cycle declined by 14% to 68 shows — a seven-year low — according to an annual survey by the film-permitting agency FilmL.A.

FilmL.A. president Paul Audley told Variety that the decline is due to the changing dynamics of the TV industry, with the streaming services Netflix and Amazon providing more programming that results in a lessening of the overall volume of pilot production.

“Despite this year’s smaller crop of pilots, Los Angeles’ television industry is robust,” Audley said. “With so many projects under way, California is home to more scripted series than its top five competitors combined.”

FilmL.A reported on Wednesday that an overall total of 173 broadcast, cable, and digital pilots (109 dramas, 64 comedies) were produced during the 2016-17 development cycle, while the previous three cycles saw 201, 202, and 203 pilots in each season. Of those 173 pilots, a total of 68 projects (22 dramas, 46 comedies) were filmed in the Los Angeles region »

‘Underground’: Director Anthony Hemingway Remains Hopeful, But Fate to Be Determined Soon

29 July 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The final decision on whether “Underground” can be revived should be known by the end of August.

That’s the word from executive producer and director Anthony Hemingway, who said Saturday that the show hasn’t yet been officially canceled.

“We’re still waiting,” he said. “I think we have until the end of August to have the definitive answer on whether we find a new home or not. I stay hopeful until the last moment.”

Diddy Responds to Allegations that Biggie Smalls Played a Part in Tupac Shakur's Death

27 July 2017 12:53 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's been 20 years since the deaths of hip-hop legends Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G., but their legacies live on. In a new interview with Willie Geist for Sunday Today, Sean "Diddy" Combs got candid about the death of his dear friend Biggie and how Tupac's shooting death impacted the hip-hop community. The music mogul revealed that when Tupac died on September 13, 1996 (only six months prior to Biggie's own passing), "it really resonated that things are really dangerous." The "Dear Mama" rapper was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting after attending a boxing match in Las Vegas. He succumbed to his wounds six days later, and the case remains »

Teen Wolf Reboot Eyed at MTV — Yes, Weeks Before It Has Even Ended

19 July 2017 5:51 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Because now we apparently talk of “reboots” before a show has actually ended, MTV is said to be in early discussions with Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis about reviving the not-yet-dead drama as an anthology series.

The basic cabler is talking with Davis about the idea of bringing the series back within “a couple of years” with a predominantly “new class” (because everyone loved Saved by the Bell: The New Class, right?) and new setting. What’s more, the series’ current storyline is expected to continue beyond the “final” 10 episodes in the form of a Serial-esque podcast.
