Carlton Cuse was honored Tuesday night at Variety‘s annual event for Hollywood’s New Leaders, presented by BMW. Cuse was recognized for mentoring others in the biz — and who better to present Cuse’s award than Damon Lindelof.
“Just over 15 years ago, I got a call from my agent,” Lindelof said, recalling how he was first introduced to Cuse. Garnering laughter from the crowd on the chic outdoor patio at the Sls, the “Lost” co-creator said, “The only Carlton I was familiar with was the one from ‘Fresh Prince.'”
In all seriousness, Lindelof touted Cuse for his efforts in supporting the careers of others, pointing out that 31 of 40 writers who have worked with Cuse have gone on to run their own shows.
Cuse received Variety’s Creative Leadership Award, following past recipients including Judd Apatow and Jerry Weintraub. “I love TV for many reasons, but none other than it is a collaborative medium, »

From comic-book adaptations to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Here are the new geek-skewed shows coming to Us TV in 2016...
The world of TV has never been so crowded and, at the same time, geeks have never had it so good. As saturated as the big screen is with superhero films and sprawling shared universes, that mentality has well and truly bled onto the small screen too.
So there’s a lot of comic-book adaptations coming up in 2016 from Marvel, DC and others, but genre TV is represented across the board with science-fiction, fantasy and horror represented at pretty much every network and cable channel in the Us.
Here's some of the geek TV that will be making its way to us from the Us next year.

After settling on a May 13, 2016 release date back in January, Paramount is moving forward with their Friday the 13th reboot, hiring Hannibal writer Nick Antosca to write a new draft of the screenplay. Richard Naing and Ian Goldberg wrote the previous draft of the script. No production schedule was given at this time.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the project "is expected to employ the found footage technique and answer the decades old question of why slasher Jason Voorhes can't be killed." Ironically, producer Bradley Fuller addressed both of these story aspects last month, although he said the reboot won't be a found footage movie, but later teased that they are "toying" with exploring the notion that Jason keeps coming back to life. With a new writer on board, it's possible that the found footage aspect is back on the table, but nothing is confirmed at this time.
Throughout its entire seven-season run, The Mentalist was always about love. It may seem like an incredibly clichéd statement, and some readers may find the notion completely ridiculous for a show that started with a man’s family being brutally murdered and him then searching for murderous revenge for five-and-a-half of the show’s seven season. However, it is true. The Mentalist is and has always been about this often used, universal theme. More specifically, The Mentalist is about love in all its forms. The love Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) found in his new family at the Cbi (and then the FBI). The young love that blossomed between Wayne Rigsby (Owain Yeoman) and Grace Van Pelt (Amanda Righetti) from the very beginning, and then again between Jason Wylie (Joe Adler) and Michelle Vega (Josie Loren) in the final season. The love and friendship between Jane and Dennis Abbott (Rockmond Dunbar), born out… »

There are happy endings, and then there are idyllic codas.
CBS’ The Mentalist wrapped its seven-season run on Wednesday night with a double header in which the serial killer Lazarus was presumably blown to bits but in fact lived on to haunt Jane and Lisbon’s wedding day.
In the end, the baddie was bested and the show’s partners in crime-fighting became man and wife… and more, when in the very final scene, Jane gleaned that his glowing bride was pregnant.
