Showrunner Carlton Cuse Sets Rich Overall Deal With ABC Studios

16 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Carlton Cuse is returning to ABC Studios, setting a mammoth overall deal with the Disney division where he spent six seasons shepherding “Lost” with Damon Lindelof.

The four-year pact, valued in its entirety in the low eight-figures, puts Cuse in a league with the richest showrunner deals in town.

Cuse will launch a new production banner dubbed Genre Arts, and he has recruited longtime Amblin TV executive Lindsey Springer to serve as president. Cuse will focus on collaborating with other writers and creatives to bring projects to fruition. The company will be based on the Disney lot.

The prolific showrunner has spent the past half-decade prospering as a free agent without a formal studio deal. He launched three successful cable dramas in A&E’s “Bates Motel,” FX’s “The Strain” and USA’s “Colony,” and he has Amazon’s reboot of “Jack Ryan” set to bow next year. At Hulu, Cuse »

Series creator Robert Kirkman and three other producers of The Walking Dead have accused AMC of breaching contract as part of a potentially billion-dollar lawsuit.

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, revealing that Kirkman has gained the backing of fellow executive producers Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, and Glen Mazzara – the latter of whom served as showrunner in light of Frank Darabont’s exit during the midst of Twd season 2 – in alleging that AMC has retained “the lion’s share” of profits, and is purportedly guilty of not distributing its revenue among creative people in a fair and just manner.

These allegations go on to claim that AMC is in violation of the California business code. As stated in Robert Kirkman’s contract with the network, he is to receive 5 percent of profits from the show, with 7.5 percent allotted to Hurd. Should AMC be found guilty of mishandling profits since »

‘The Walking Dead’ Producers Sue AMC Networks Over Profits From Hit Series

14 August 2017 4:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC’s monster hit “The Walking Dead” has sparked another lawsuit, this time from producers who say AMC is short-changing their profit participation stakes through self-dealing.

Walking Dead” comic creator Robert Kirkman and his fellow exec producers Gale Anne Hurd, Glen Mazzara, and David Alpert maintain AMC has failed to pay fair market value in the license fee for the series because the show is produced by its in-house AMC Studios arm. The suit filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court also involves the spinoff “Fear the Walking Dead” and the “Talking Dead” after-show.

The suit echoes the accusations in the bitter legal fight that original “Walking Dead” showrunner Frank Darabont has waged against the cabler for the past few years. Ironically, in the most recent round of motions in the Darabont case, AMC pointed to what it depicted as the acceptance of the license fee definition by Hurd and others as evidence that Darabont’s position »

Stephen King says a sequel to The Dark Tower needs to be R-rated

9 August 2017 6:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony and Mrc’s long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King’s fantasy epic The Dark Tower may not have set the box office alight, although the film has recouped around half of its $60 million production budget, and with many international markets still to come, the Nikolaj Arcel-directed film could well go on to turn a profit. Whether that will be enough to see a sequel greenlighted remains to be seen, but if that is the case, then author King believes it has shake off the restrictions of a PG-13 rating and go down the R-rated route.

“I understand the rationale behind the movie that is PG-13,” said King in an interview with Bmd. “I was totally signed off on that. I want as many people in the tent as possible, for all kinds of reasons. Part of it has to do with the dynamic between the Gunslinger and the boy. »

The Walking Dead’s Glen Mazzara to serve as showrunner on The Dark Tower TV series

6 August 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Dark Tower feature film may have found itself struggling with critics and audiences [read our review here], but it seems the planned TV show spinoff Wizard and Glass is still moving forward, with THR reporting that The Walking Dead executive producer Glen Mazzara has signed on to serve as showrunner.

“I’ve been a Stephen King fan for decades and the opportunity to adapt The Dark Tower as a TV series is a great honor,” states Mazzara. “The events of The Gunslinger, Wizard & Glass, The Wind Through the Keyhole, and other tales need a long format to capture the complexity of Roland’s coming of age — how he became the Gunslinger, how Walter became the Man in Black, and how their rivalry cost Roland everything and everyone he ever loved. I could not be more excited to tell this story. It feels like being given the key to a treasure chest. And oh yeah, »

Whatever happens at theaters this weekend, The Dark Tower will live on. Naturally, Stephen King's popular series of novels, which served as the basis for the movie, will remain available for fans to read again and again, while neophytes may be drawn to them for the first time in order to explore The Dark Tower universe further.

3 August 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With The Dark Tower opening in theaters this weekend, moviegoers will be transported to Mid-World on the big screen, but the seminal Stephen King book series is making some progress on the small screen as well, with a showrunner now set.

According to THR, Glen Mazzara (The Walking Dead, Damien) is set to serve as showrunner for The Dark Tower TV series from Media Rights Capital and Sony Pictures Television. The series is currently in the development stages, as it still needs to find a network to call home, but it's expected to comprise 10–13 episodes and filming could begin as early as 2018 if things move forward (The Dark Tower's box office performance could be a factor in whether or not the series comes to fruition).

An "origin story" of sorts, The Dark Tower TV series is expected to include Idris Elba as Roland The Gunslinger, Dennis Haysberg as Roland's father, »
