ABC Adds ‘Muppets’ & Three New Dramas for Fall; Tgit Stays Put

12 May 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC opted for stability in the fall, launching just five new series with no major shakeups to its nightly strategies. The network, which had momentum this past season with improved ratings, is clearly hoping to maintain its uptick, simply swapping dramas for dramas and comedies for comedies.

ABC is poised to win the May sweep in adults 18-49 and will finish as the only Big Four broadcast network up in the demo vs. last season. For the season, ABC will finish a competitive third in 18-49 and is No. 1 with all sports excluded from averages.

Monday nights will stay put in the fall with “Dancing With the Stars,” followed by “Castle,” which just set both Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion, “our two beloved heroines and heroes,” said ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee, for its eighth season, following lengthy contract negotiations. After “DWTS” hands out the mirror ball, “The Bachelor” will come in, »

ABC Orders Six New Dramas Including Shondaland’s ‘The Catch’

7 May 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC has given the series greenlight to a half-dozen drama projects, ranging from a Biblical epic to an FBI 9/11 conspiracy vehicle to a long-con thriller from Shonda RhimesShondaland shop. All six of the series hail from ABC Studios or the ABC Signature production unit.

The orders reinforce ABC’s strategy of loading up on dramas with an eye toward some shows with shorter-episode orders to help refresh the schedule and avoid repeats of new and returning series. The emphasis on ABC-produced projects makes it clear that the Alphabet is looking for maximum control of the digital windowing strategies on its shows, an increasingly important factor for broadcasting networks.

SXSW Film Review: ‘Bone in the Throat’

19 March 2015 5:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Celebrity chef and peripatetic TV host Anthony Bourdain is credited as an executive producer of “Bone in the Throat,” a free adaptation of his novel about ambitious restaurateurs and minor-league Mafiosi in Manhattan’s Little Italy, so one must presume he approved of director/co-scripter Graham Henman’s decision to reconstitute the source material as a seriocomic tale of haute cuisine and criminal activity in East London. But the shifts in locale and characterization may not be for every taste: Although entertaining in fits and starts, the filmization too often has the flavor of a reheated leftover from the Guy Ritchie menu. Audiences aren’t likely to sample this middling concoction until it’s served in home-screen platforms.

The plot pivots on the aspirations of Will Reeves (Ed Westwick), the white sheep of a family of mob minions. Will has set his sights on the straight life of a master chef, »

SXSW: Watch The Trailer For Adaptation Of Anthony Bourdain's 'Bone In The Throat' With Ed Westwick & Tom Wilkinson

13 March 2015 11:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Anthony Bourdain is an acclaimed chef who has recovered from drug addiction, hosted a handful of TV shows, and written several books and novels. So yes, he's probably done more today than you'll do all month, and the latest Bourdain associated project coming is "Bone In The Throat," based on his debut piece of fiction. It hits SXSW this weekend, and the first trailer has arrived. Ed Westwick, Tom Wilkinson, Rupert Graves, Vanessa Kirby, John Hannah, Steve Mackintosh, and Andy Nyman star in the first feature from director Graham Henman about a talented young chef who is being pulled in the East End London mob scene by his uncle, and must fight to survive. So yes, it's a pulpy tale that just happens to revolve around life in the kitchen, rather than something aiming for a more accurate view of life behind the stove.  We'll see how many Michelin stars »
