Exclusive: AMC‘s foray into sci-fi is being put on hold. The cable network has passed on drama pilot Line Of Sight, from Brotherhood creator Blake Masters. Co-produced by Fox TV Studios and AMC Studios, it centered on Lewis Bernt (David Morrissey), a National Transportation Safety Board investigator who survives a mysterious plane crash, bringing him on an emotionally disorienting quest to discover the accident’s cause. Line Of Sight, which emerged out of AMC’s 2013 annual script showcase, was the first sci-fi project to get a green light at AMC. It co-starred Sarah Clarke, Kai Lennox, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Omar Metwally, Samantha Mathis and Chinasa Ogbuagu. FtvS plans to shop the pilot elsewhere. AMC has two other pilots in the works – Knifeman, set in 18th century London, and the post-apocalyptic Galyntine – as well as straight-to series Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul and a companion Walking Dead series eyed »

How did Stephen not know? Why did Marla keep it a secret? What's coming next? Zap2it got some answers in an interview with Clarke.
Zap2it: When did you find out that Marla had powers too?
Sarah Clarke: We started thinking about it about halfway through this season. There were always a lot of questions about how much I know about my husband when he was working with Jedikiah. And I was constantly grilling the writers of just how much denial I was in, in terms of what he could do or was it something I knew about but was just keeping from the kids.
So when it went to the next level, it actually made more sense to me. It was still a »
The CW drama series The Tomorrow People follows a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities, who are the next evolutionary leap of mankind. Up until a year ago, Stephen Jameson (Robbie Amell) was a “normal” teenager, but then he learned that he is part of a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication, and that this race is being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra. As Marla Jameson, single mother of sons Stephen and Luca (Jacob Kogan), actress Sarah Clarke is getting deeper into the action, especially after the big reveal about her character. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, she talked about whether she knew about the reveal when she signed on, what her reaction was to her character’s duality, what makes this family identifiable, what fans can expect with what’s still to come, »

Last we left The Tomorrow People, we had just experienced the mother of all twists — literally! Stephen’s mother, Marla, used her telekinesis to stop bullets from killing Astrid and her dad. Suffice all of that to say that Marla is a Tomorrow Person! And a powerful one at that.
So how is this going to change, well, everything moving forward? We caught up with Sarah Clarke to talk about Marla’s future relationship with Stephen, her impressive powers, and the idea of fighting being a family affair (Luca included!):

io9 got a copy of what they believe is a draft of the first episode of Gotham. Lets hope there are many more drafts before they film a script. I’m reminded of that terrible Birds of Prey where people kept explaining things.

After last week’s camping trip didn’t exactly go as planned, Stephen discovered his mother’s boyfriend wasn’t the paranormal he was looking for. Instead, he should’ve been looking at his own brother, Luca, who is now “breaking out.” So with a pair of sibling paranormals, the introduction of The Founder’s daughter, and a Cara-John clash, what does this week hold for The Tomorrow People?
We caught up with Peyton List to talk about the show’s newest character, what John and Stephen’s friendship will mean for Cara, and more:

Exceedingly stylish and ultimately quite silly, “The Signal” is a sci-fi head trip better appreciated for the journey than the destination. The less audiences know going in, the more intrigued they’ll be by the story’s not entirely predictable twists and turns. But a good deal of the fun, and some of the best visual surprises, may have to be compromised in order to lure those audiences into theaters if Focus Features (which inherited the project in the recent FilmDistrict takeover) plans a wide release. Commercial prospects nevertheless appear modest for such an idiosyncratic pic with a relatively low-profile cast.
Indebted to both “District 9″ and “The Blair Witch Project,” but unlikely to enjoy either of those films’ sleeper success, “The Signal” has absolutely no relation to the low-budget horror triptych of the same name that premiered in Sundance’s Park City at Midnight section seven years ago. Instead, »
