'Mr. Robot': What's Next?

1 July 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

In USA's "Mr. Robot," Christian Slater's titular character wants to start a revolution, but can he count on Rami Malek's Elliot for support?

In last week's series premiere on USA, Mr. Robot worked to recruit corporate cyber security expert Elliot for his clandestine hacker group that wants to erase people's debt and level the playing field. But is joining that group the right fit for Elliot?

Despite Elliot's social anxiety disorder and – at times – crippling depression, he has so far worked alone at fighting injustices of large and small degrees. The premiere saw how he had ...

Check out our picks for the week of June 29th: Monday 6/29 UnReal, “Truth” (Lifetime, 10 p.m.) — The very bingeable series starring Shiri Appleby heads to Mississippi in its latest episode for Faith’s (Breeda Wool) hometown date with Adam (Freddie Stroma).

TV Performer of the Week: Rami Malek, Mr. Robot

26 June 2015 2:53 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

USA’s new series Mr. Robot debuted this week to great acclaim that is mostly due to its star, Rami Malek. It was Malek’s portrayal of the security tech and vigilante hacker Elliot that really sold Mr. Robot as something special from the very start. In my review of the series earlier this week, I mentioned Malek’s wild-eyed, slinking movements on screen, physically expressing both Elliot’s super intelligence and his almost feral qualities. Malek carries the burden of the series on his back — he’s not Mr. Robot (that would be Christian Slater), but he is the reason we are watching. [caption id="attachment_478763" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via USA[/caption] As Elliot, Malek needs to be many things, and it’s incredible how much be betrays about his character over the course of just the first hour. Elliot has a voiceover that explains his thought process, but Malek is masterful in the »

Mr Robot episode 1 review: eps1.0_hellofriend.mov

26 June 2015 3:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Promising new USA Network cyber-hacking drama Mr Robot may be a throwback to the late-nineties, but that's no bad thing...

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 eps1.0_hellofriend.mov

For a cyber-thriller set in 2015 New York, there’s something curiously anachronistic about the first episode of Mr Robot, a promising new ten-part drama starring Rami Malek and Christian Slater.

Unusually for this genre, it’s not the tech that feels as if it belongs to another time, but the ideology. Episode one’s monologues on disaffection, alienation, phoneyism, economic anarchy and evil conglomerates are drenched in Fight Club, The Matrix and American Psycho-era cynicism.

With his raised black hoodie, vacant good looks, withdrawn demeanour and counselling sessions, Mr Robot’s lead Elliot Alderson (Malek) even channels the hero of another turn-of-the-last-century cult favourite: Donnie Darko. Moving even further down the timeline, casting Christian Slater as a co-lead almost certainly knowingly takes »

Mr. Robot: Season One Ratings

26 June 2015 12:10 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

USA Network had such faith in their new thriller series, Mr. Robot, that they renewed it for a second season before an episode of the series had even aired on television. Will it be a hit or a flop? Will the execs end up wishing they'd cancelled it instead? Let's watch the ratings and see.

Mr. Robot follows a young programmer (Rami Malek) who finds himself at a crossroad. The mysterious leader (Christian Slater) of an underground hacker group recruits him to destroy the corrupt and dangerous firm he's being paid to protect. The rest of the cast includes Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, and Martin Wallström.

After Monthlong Online Preview, ‘Mr. Robot’ Draws 1.75M Viewers For USA

25 June 2015 5:25 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

USA Network’s hacker drama starring Rami Malek and Christian Slater got off to a bumpy ratings start Wednesday, drawing a not-great 1.75 million viewers and 0.5 among the 18-49 demo at 10 Pm. But the numbers for Mr. Robot were skewed by the fact that the pilot had been playing for free online since May 27. The ratings also are sort of academic: USA gave the series a second-season pickup of at least 10 episodes on Wednesday, hours before its network premiere. The cable net… »

Ratings: USA Hacker Drama ‘Mr. Robot’ Opens Ok Wednesday

25 June 2015 4:20 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA drama “Mr. Robot,” which was picked up for a second season before it even premiered, opened to decent numbers on Wednesday night — especially considering it was made available four weeks early as part of a unique windowing strategy by the network.

According to Nielsen estimates, “Mr. Robot” averaged a 0.46 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.752 million viewers overall in the 10 p.m. hour, retaining 75% of its demo lead-in from the season premiere of “Suits” (0.61 rating in 18-49, 2.13 million viewers overall). It skewed very male, with about 62% of its 18-49 audience comprised of men.

The pilot of “Mr. Robot” was released early online, and has garnered nearly 3 million views across multiple non-linear platforms in the last four weeks.

While the 0.46 rating isn’t anything to boast about, it’s high enough to outdraw most of the other recent basic-cable scripted premieres, including USA’s “Complications” (0.41), Bravo’s “Odd Mom Out,” TNT »

"Transparent," "Robot, "Aquarius" Renewed

25 June 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Amazon Studios has announced that they have renewed award-winning dramedy "Transparent" for a third season which will be available in 2016.

The series, about a transgender parent coming out to her family, has yet to announce a premiere date for the show's second season. It is expected though that the third season would have the same ten episode count as the first two seasons.

That isn't the only early renewal this week though. USA has given a ten episode, second season order for its cyber thriller drama "Mr. Robot" with the renewal said to come just hours before the pilot premiered last night.

Why did they go early? The pilot was already released online early because of fear of hacking, and in the process it has garnered nearly three million views across multiple nonlinear platforms. Reviews for the series, about a young cyber-security engineer (Rami Malek) who moonlights as a vigilante hacker, »

'Mr. Robot' Star Rami Malek on Making an 'Indie Film' on USA Network and Its 'Iconic' Potential

25 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

USA Network isn't the USA Network you know. Not anymore. Not after "Mr. Robot" premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, taking home an audience award before screening at the Tribeca Film Festival and SeriesFest and getting a sneak peak online for anyone with an internet connection. The thriller from creator Sam Esmail bucks just about every association viewers have made with the NBC Universal cable network, ditching the blue skies and episodic storytelling for black hoodies cloaked by night and a gripping, serialized character study.  At its center is Rami Malek, a name you may not know yet but a face you're sure to recognize — and remember liking. Malek, despite his young age of 34, has appeared in everything from critically-acclaimed miniseries ("The Pacific") to breakout indie darlings ("Short Term 12") to big-time studio blockbusters ("Battleship"). Now, he's taking his talents to USA, a decision he had to deliberate on before signing. »

Mr. Robot: Can the USA Network Computer Drama Hack It?

24 June 2015 8:09 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“I know what it’s like to be different. I’m very different, too.”

That confession, uttered by protagonist Elliot on Mr. Robot‘s series premiere, might just be the understatement of the year.

As we quickly learn in the USA Network hacker drama, which premiered Wednesday, Elliot (Rami Malek, The War at Home) is exceedingly unique. A cybersecurity engineer by day, Elliot spends his nights as a vigilante hacker, prying into the computer files of pedophiles and cheaters who don’t want anyone to know they’re pedophiles and cheaters.

24 June 2015 7:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s been quite a day for “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail. Hours before his first series premiere, “Mr. Robot” was given an early second season renewal and now, Universal Cable Productions has announced Esmail’s overall deal.

Under the seven-figure pact, which marks Esmail’s first-ever television deal, the writer/producer will develop and produce scripted programming for NBCUniversal’s portfolio of networks — which houses USA Network, home to his “Mr. Robot” — plus external and over-the-top channels.

“Sam is a visionary and, although he might not use the term himself, a real mensch,” announced Jeff Wachtel, Cco of NBCUniversal cable entertainment and president of Universal Cable Productions on Wednesday. “Everything about the process on ‘Mr. Robot’ has been a dream. We look forward to creating other wonderful shows with him.”

Mr. Robot,” starring Christian Slater and Rami Malek, made its mark winning the audience award at this year’s SXSW festival in March. »

'Mr. Robot' Star Reveals Scary Real-Life Hacking Incident -- 'I Was Held for Ransom'

24 June 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

On the new USA drama "Mr. Robot," a band of hackers led by Christian Slater play Robin Hood against the 1%. "I think the subject matter, how relevant it is, how timely it is, how corrupt the 1% is and trying to battle against that, there’s something heroic about that," star Rami Malek tells toofab. "You get this feeling that you actually can do something here and have fun doing it."

‘Mr. Robot’s’ Rami Malek Talks Costar Christian Slater, Hacker Intrigue

24 June 2015 11:13 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

USA Network’s original series “Mr. Robot” is a technological thriller for a new age, but don’t expect the usual robots and fantasy props. Instead, Rami Malek stars as Elliot — a socially awkward, cyber-security engineer by day and hacker extraordinaire by night — who lives in a very normal world. In contrast to sci-fi shows premiering this summer, such as ABC Family’s “Stitchers” and AMC’s “Humans,” creator Sam Esmail‘s “Mr. Robot” stands out as a drama with a theme relevant to current times: cyber-intrigue. Christian Slater plays the titular Mr. Robot, the mysterious leader of an underground hacker unit who recruits Elliot. »
