Reckless: New CBS TV Show; Cancel or Keep for Season Two?

18 August 2014 1:02 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Legal and crime dramas are a big part of the CBS schedule during the year. This summer, the network started airing another one -- Reckless. Has this new TV show been a ratings success? Will it be renewed for a second season or, will it be cancelled instead?

Reckless revolves around a beautiful litigator from the north and a charming southern attorney who must hide their intense mutual attraction as a police sex scandal erupts in Charleston, South Carolina. The TV show's cast includes Cam Gigandet, Anna Wood, Shawn Hatosy, Georgina Haig, Adam Rodríguez, Michael Gladis, Kim Wayans, and Gregory Harrison.

The series debuted in late June to just a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.99 million total viewers. That was a very poor start for a scripted series -- even one that airs during the summer months when expectations are lower. »

4 Minute Mile Review

1 August 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Running is a very hard sport to depict onscreen. Without a rousing score by Vangelis or the horns of “Gonna Fly Now” blasting through the speakers, it is very hard for any filmmaker or actor to show off a character’s speed or endurance in a memorable way. Leg power does not often translate to emotional power on the screen, which is one of the many problems facing 4 Minute Mile, a sports drama that barely goes the distance to be either inspirational or inspired.

Our plucky underdog is Drew Jacobs (Kelly Blatz), a track-and-field senior in Seattle who has a drug-dealing brother (Cam Gigandet), an absent mother (Kim Basinger, also mostly absent from the film) and a dead father. Besides these autobiographical details, there is not much to Drew. He likes to run and he hopes his speed can catapult him out of a life being a mule for his »

Film Review: ‘4 Minute Mile’

1 August 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lacing up the spikes of sports movies past, Canadian filmmaker Charles-Olivier Michaud’s “4 Minute Mile” is a by-the-numbers tale of inspiration through perspiration. Engaging performances by the principal players, including Richard Jenkins as a legendary coach beset by personal demons, are almost enough to win the day, but in the end, the cliched narrative is too slight to put the picture over the finish line. A brief lap in theaters and dutiful jog through ancillary might include cable, where most of the thesps have run their qualifying heats.

Drew Jacobs (Kelly Blatz, TV’s “Aaron Stone”) is a promising high-school track star with a chip on his shoulder. He’s being raised by a single mother (Kim Basinger) who can’t protect him from the criminal influence of his older brother, Wes (Cam Gigandet, “Twilight”), who uses him as a courier to menacing drug supplier Eli (Rhys Coiro, the mercurial »

4 Minute Mile Is For Fans of Any Sports Underdog Movie

29 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

"You've got something deep inside you, and you've got to face that fear," an ex-track coach (Richard Jenkins) tells his pupil (Kelly Blatz) in 4 Minute Mile. "Otherwise you'll turn out to be me — and you don't want that. But if you do face that fear, it'll change your life."

Ham-fisted dialogue dominates this picture, with characters expressing central plot points in a manner that makes hammering a nail seem subtle. This isn't the film's only problem — 4 Minute Mile is cobbled together with every sports underdog cliché imaginable. There's the talented youth (Drew) from a troubled background striving for a better life with his skill (running); an older brother (Cam Gigandet) who's mixed up with the wrong crowd; a poor, helpless mother (Kim Basing »

Exclusive: Richard Jenkins Faces The Fear In Clip From '4 Minute Mile'

15 July 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While cinema has had no shortage of stories about young people finding their way out of a hard life through the arts or sports, we'd wager there have been few that have positioned hope of a successful future on the race track. But in "4 Minute Mile" running is indeed the conduit through which a life can be changed forever. Directed by Charles-Olivier Michaud, and starring Kelly Blatz, Richard Jenkins, Cam Gigandet, Analeigh Tipton, Rhys Coiro and Kim Basinger, the story follows high school student Drew whose life is stuck between running drug payments for a local dealer, dealing with his deadbeat brother and overworked mother, all while trying to maintain the attentions of girl at school. But Drew is changed and finds purpose when he meets an ex-track coach who decides to take him under his wing. And in this exclusive clip, we see Jenkins as that mentor, giving Drew »

Summer can be a tough time to launch a new drama but CBS had success last year with Under the Dome. Will Reckless be a ratings success or a flop? Will it be renewed for a second season or cancelled instead? Stay tuned!

Reckless revolves around a beautiful litigator from the north and a charming southern attorney who must hide their intense mutual attraction as a police sex scandal erupts in Charleston, South Carolina. The TV show cast includes Cam Gigandet, Anna Wood, Shawn Hatosy, Georgina Haig, Adam Rodríguez, Michael Gladis, Kim Wayans, and Gregory Harrison.

Shawn Hatosy Talks New CBS Drama Reckless, Avoiding the Trappings of a One-Note Character, the End of Southland, and More

On the new CBS legal drama Reckless, set in Charleston, South Carolina, divorced father or two, Roy Rayder (Cam Gigandet), is the new City Attorney thanks to his influential former father-in-law (Gregory Harrison).  When a disgraced cop (Georgina Haig) hires Yankee litigator Jamie Sawyer (Anna Wood), Jamie and Roy find themselves sparring in and out of the courtroom, as dark secrets threaten to tarnish the reputation of the town and its residents.

Your Week in Beefcake: “The Witches of East End” Prodigal Stud and a “True Blood” Farewell

12 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The TV landscape had an extra plentiful bounty of shirtless hunks showing off ripped, hard-earned physiques and that makes the latest Your Week in Beefcake especially fun. Not only do we get to see if The Witches of East End can beat last season’s hunk quotient, General Hospital had an epic day of shirtlessness.

The glorious cheese platter of magic and hot guys that is The Witches of East End came back Sunday. I’ll be honest, I had a hard time following the plot because it looks like Lifetime took away their lighting budget. Still, murky as things were, the show did introduce us to Joanna‘s son Frederik (Christian Cooke) who casts sinister magic spells in the forest shirtless.

Reckless Review – CBS Explores Insult TV So Popular On Other Networks

1 July 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Reckless Review

CBS‘ latest offering, Reckless, at least has the positive quality of not dancing around with what sort of nonsense it is. It lets you know where things are going right with the introductory scene. A woman is pulled over by a police officer, and she may have been drinking, but she’ll do anything not to get a ticket. You may raise your eyebrows as the officer has her cuffed to a fence and begins to take advantage of the situation, but wait, it’s all okay, because this is just a little sexual roleplay between consenting adults. (Whew. Tee hee hee. Oooo. Steamy.)

This leads us into the show’s main thrust (ha), which is to sidestep the majority of the establishment requirements by focusing on one story for at least a good while. We quickly meet Jamie Sawyer (Anna Wood), a defense attorney who is working »

'Reckless' could use a little less recklessness

29 June 2014 7:01 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Much like viewers want to watch Christmas movies in December, June is the time for beaches, minimal clothing, and sweat. And by those requirements alone, Reckless will meet your summer quota.

Set in Charleston, South Carolina, Reckless follows two lawyers through all of the town’s scandals. Lawyer no. 1 is good old Southern boy Roy, played by Cam Gigandet, who drives his boat to work each day, knows how to rock a suit, and says things like “bless your heart.” Then there’s Jamie, the Yankee lawyer who’s new in town and favors short dresses and high heels.

Ansel Elgort would be happy to walk the streets in his underwear, Angel Haze and Ireland Baldwin are not best friends, where are the Lgbt cartoon characters?

We’ve now reached the point that tabloid outlets like RadarOnline are making up stuff about gay power couples just like they do straight couples. Their latest is that David Burtka is only allowing Neil Patrick Harris to do Hedwig for six months to keep the men from flirting with him. “At least in L.A. David is always around to make sure it never goes any further. And not to say certain guys haven’t become ‘friendly’ with David in New York too, but without each other around, it’s hard to resist other guys hitting on them.”
