Can you Survive? Preservation Trailer Debuts

16 December 2014 8:05 AM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Six years ago, an actor named Christopher Denham made a tight little “found footage” film called Home Movie. I picked it up on a whim at the Rue Morgue Festival of Fear/Toronto Fan Expo since it wasn’t available in America at the time. I really dug it and while Denham hasn’t been quiet on his acting career – working in ArgoThe Bay, a couple of episodes of The Following and Sound of My Voice. I was hoping to see his directorial follow-up a lot sooner. We got a trailer for his follow-up to Home MoviePreservation. Yes, it looks like a little bit of a twist on a familiar plot stemmed from the short story The Most Dangerous Game but who cares. I’m always up for a survival tale. Check out the trailer & poster below.

Synopsis:

Preservation follows brothers Sean (Schreiber), a recently returned veteran, and »

When all of their gear is stolen, they turn on each other, but soon realize there are much more treacherous forces at work. »

One of the last theatrical releases I helped curate under the Shock Till You Drop/The Orchard distribution partnership is Preservation from filmmaker Christopher Denham.

'Manhattan' finale: Deconstructing the atomic bomb drama with creator Sam Shaw

19 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Implosion. Pre-detonation. Radioactivity. Meltdowns. The terms that define Wgn’s atomic bomb drama Manhattan also apply to its characters, a mix of men and women trying to stop a world war by creating a weapon that could destroy the planet completely. There isn't a simple equation among them. Throughout season one, which came to an end Sunday night with its thirteenth episode (“Perestroika”), the show mastered the art of contradiction, presenting heroes you root for even as they betray their own better natures. In the finale, the scientists of Los Alamos are still far from the breakthroughs they will need »

Manhattan: Season Two Renewal for Wgn America Series

14 October 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though its viewership has been quite small, Manahattan has been renewed for a second season on Wgn America. The period TV show's first season finale airs this Sunday night.

Set in 1943, Manhattan follows the residents of a secret town of Los Alamos, New Mexico. Hidden away by the federal government, scientists live there with their families while they work to build the world's first atomic bomb. The cast includes John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams, Alexia Fast, Ashley Zukerman, Rachel Brosnahan, Daniel Stern, Katja Herbers, Christopher Denham, Harry Lloyd, Michael Chernus, Eddie Shin, Daniel London, and Mark Moses.

The 11 episodes that have aired so far have averaged a 0.08 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 420,000 viewers. The cable channel is still very new to producing their own scripted series so likely has low expectations at this point.

Manhattan: Season One Ratings

23 September 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Wgn America is still very new to producing their original scripted series so it's hard to know what they consider a ratings success. Salem was renewed for a second season. Will the new Manhattan series be renewed as well or will it be cancelled? We'll have to wait and see.

Set in 1943, Manhattan follows the residents of a secret town of Los Alamos, New Mexico. Hidden away by the federal government, scientists live there with their families while they work to build the world's first atomic bomb. The cast includes John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams, Alexia Fast, Ashley Zukerman, Rachel Brosnahan, Daniel Stern, Katja Herbers, Christopher Denham, Harry Lloyd, Michael Chernus, Eddie Shin, Daniel London, and Mark Moses.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. »

Sam Shaw and Thomas Schlamme Talk Manhattan, Serializing the Story, Balancing History and Fiction, & Prioritizing Emotional Honesty over Historical Accuracy

30 July 2014 7:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

What happens if you round up the nation's most brilliant scientific minds, seclude them in a makeshift city in the middle of the desert, and drown their lives in secrecy?  These are the questions addressed in Manhattan, the new historical drama from creator Sam Shaw (Masters of Sex) and director Thomas Schlamme (The West Wing).  Manhattan offers a semi-fictionalized version of the infamous Manhattan Project - the clandestine research and development project that resulted in the creation of the atomic bomb.  While the events of the show are based on history, Manhattan largely steers clear of iconic figures like J.  Robert Oppenheimer and Leslie Groves, and focuses instead on the interpersonal drama between fictitious characters as they contend with the costs of secrecy and isolation.  Manhattan stars John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams, Daniel Stern, Rachel Brosnahan, Ashley Zukerman, Harry Lloyd, Michael Chernus, Christopher Denham, Katja Herbers, Alexia Fast, and Eddie Shin. »
