The commissioning of television projects is always a gamble. A pitch that sounded like a guaranteed win can all too easily become the first casualty of pilot season, if the magic formula of talent – both onscreen and off – is not achieved. In these uncertain economic times, when regular broadcast channels are competing more and more with original content produced by streaming platforms, such as Netflix and Amazon, an aversion to such risk could well explain the current trend of revisiting past glories. As The X Files gears up for a limited season, and a 24 spin-off is rumoured, TVLine has exclusively revealed that the popular Fox series Prison Break is also officially in development for a limited series.
Prison Break began airing in January 2006, and quickly found a fan-base with its increasingly claustrophobic tale of conspiracy, political intrigue and family drama. Starring Wentworth Miller as Michael Scofield and Dominic Purcell as his brother, »

USA Network is doubling down on WWE, bringing “SmackDown” over from Syfy next year as part of an effort to hike the volume of live programming on NBCUniversal’s flagship entertainment cabler.
The move of “SmackDown,” a slew of development projects, new programs featuring the Chrisley clan and summer scheduling announcements were unveiled Tuesday morning at USA Network’s press upfront gathering held at 30 Rock’s Rainbow Room.
USA Network president Chris McCumber made it clear in his presentation that the cabler is shifting the focus of its original programming to court a millennial audience. He noted that the generational shift of millennials now making up the largest component of the 18-49 audience is well under way. USA’s new shows are built around stories and characters that exhibit “bravery, optimism, self-reliance and hope” — all themes that resonate with millennials, per McCumber.

As relentless as the living dead can be, humans are still more dangerous in the world of The Walking Dead. That belief is mirrored in Skybound's new edition of The Walking Dead #1 that will be available to Wizard World Raleigh attendees later this month. The cover features new artwork from Billy Dogma creator Dean Haspiel and showcases a familiar face for fans of both the comic book series and the TV show, though what's thrust in front of him is something only the former may recognize.

Spoiler Warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Walking Dead” season five, episode nine, titled “What Happened and What’s Going On.”
No one can accuse “The Walking Dead” of holding on to characters too long. It was just two months ago that fans said goodbye to Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) in the midseason finale. In tonight’s midseason premiere, they had to do the same for Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman), who joined the show back in season three and leaves behind his sister, Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green).
It was a powerful, potentially divisive, installment, and Variety asked executive producer and the episode’s director Greg Nicotero to talk us through the decision to lose Tyreese at this point, what it was like for Coleman on set, working with some very special guest stars and what lies ahead for the survivors after these brutal back-to-back losses.
Why Tyreese and why now? »

USA Network is betting on some old island magic.
The network on Tuesday gave a 10-episode order to Colony, a new alien-invasion drama that will re-team Lost star Josh Holloway and executive producer Carlton Cuse — along with The Walking Dead‘s Sarah Wayne Callies.
Cuse and Ryan Condal (2014’s big-screen version of Hercules) will serve as writers and EPs for the series, which the network describes as follows: “Colony centers on a family torn by opposing forces and making difficult decisions as they balance staying together with surviving the struggle of the human race.

“Colony,” which stars Josh Holloway (“Lost”) and Sarah Wayne Callies (“The Walking Dead”), is executive produced by Carlton Cuse (“Bates Motel,” “The Strain”) and Ryan Condal (“Hercules”). A co-production between Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, it will shoot in Los Angeles.
Set in the near future, “Colony” centers on a family — headed up by Holloway and Callies — who must make difficult decisions as they balance staying together with trying to survive. They live in L.A., which has been occupied by a force of outside intruders. While some people have chosen to collaborate with the authorities and benefit from the new order, others have rebelled — and suffer the consequences.

In between Sarah Wayne Callies' stints on Fox's Prison Break and AMC's The Walking Dead, the actress shot an independent film from acclaimed Nigerian director Jeta Amata entitled Black Gold. The film, which is loosely based on actual events, follows the people living in Nigeria's Niger Delta, fighting to reclaim their devastated homeland from their own government and a massive oil corporation. In 2012, over 60% of Black Gold's scenes were re-shot, with new scenes also included to make the film more current, which resulted in an entirely different movie entitled Black November.
The film received a miniscule theatrical release in 2012, after it premiered at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., although it actually inspired two Congressmen to pressure the Nigerian government and oil corporations into cleaning up the Niger Delta. Starting today, Black November has finally been given the release it deserves, with Entertainment One rolling out this »
Former "The Walking Dead" star Sarah Wayne Callies has been busy since her days on cable's biggest show -- particularly on the big screen. Besides starring in last summer's "Into the Storm" and the upcoming horror flick "The Other Side of the Door," the actress can be seen in the dramatic thriller "Black November," out today.
Inspired by real events, "Black November" tells the story of an oil-rich Nigerian community that wages war against an oil corporation to protect their land from destruction. Written and directed by Jeta Amata, the gripping film features Callies opposite stars Kim Basinger, Anne Heche, Wyclef Jean, and Mickey Rourke.
In anticipation for her new movie, the actress told Moviefone her 5 favorite movies based on true stories -- complete with commentary from Callies herself!
"Black November" arrives in theaters and is available on VOD & iTunes today.
- Moviefone Staff
Nigerian director Jeta Amata's Black November is at once passionate and cynical, a smash-up of tones that fits its story about a politicized, American-schooled 21-year-old girl from the Niger Delta who returns home to head a local uprising — and is soon sentenced to hang. Ebiere (Mbong Amata, the filmmaker's wife and a real talent) is a polarizing pacifist, one part Joan of Arc to two parts Martin Luther King.
Just as Ebiere arrives at her mother's hut, half the town dies in a gas pipe explosion. Despite attention from a nice white lady newscaster (Sarah Wayne Callies), the CEO of the U.S. oil company at fault (Mickey Rourke) shortchanges the survivors and orders the police to beat anyone who complains, pitting cousin against cousin like an impassive god.
