[Biff Review] Mercy

10 October 2016 4:42 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s practically impossible to talk about what’s happening in Chris Sparling‘s latest thriller, Mercy, without spoiling it. The writer-director knows, and splits his film into three pieces as a result: the first third completely shrouded in mystery, the next a replay from alternative perspectives, and the last the truth of the pursuers’ identities and the lies their victims have been spinning from the start. The only other Sparling film I’ve seen is his most popular one, Buried, which he wrote with Rodrigo Cortés directing, but the similarities in deflection and confusion are obvious. Whereas it focused solely on one character trapped without the ability to fully comprehend what’s happening, Mercy places its viewer in the coffin. We don’t know who’s out there and we definitely cannot trust the family in peril.

I’ll stick solely to the first act to whet your suspense-thriller »

17 September 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Friday night agency party crawl has become a staple of Emmy weekend.

The fortunate few who were invited to all of them had the high-class problem of mapping a route that wound through the home of UTA managing partner Jay Sures in Brentwood, the Little Holmby digs of Gersh’s Leslie Siebert, Bouchon (CAA) in Beverly Hills and Catch La (Wme) in West Hollywood.

Among the Emmy weekend warriors on the circuit were Fox Television Group’s Dana Walden and NBCUniversal Cable’s Bonnie Hammer. Both of them also managed to make time to stop in at the Variety/Women in Film bash at Gracias Madre, just down the street from Wme’s gathering.


Bouchon was packed with A-listers who wound their way through every nook-and-cranny of the famed Thomas Keller eatery. Showrunners “Better Call Saul’s” Peter Gould talked up production for season three of his AMC hit and “Mr. Robot’s” Sam Esmail tried »

God, I love this wackadoodle show.

This week on CBS’ Zoo, Mitch deduced that their “missing link” in finding the cure would be an extremely hard get, while Jackson came face to face with his mutated mother. When all was said and done, the team was poised for a Jurassic lark, until an unexpected adversary surfaced.

Surveying the bones of the last animal they need to capture in the name of curing the triple-helix mutation, Mitch ultimately realized that their prey was a saber tooth cat — as in the animal that went extinct during the Ice Age. »

Zoo Sneak Peek: Jackson's Mother Is a Real Wild Woman!

16 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Jackson’s mom has got it going on — and by “it,” we mean the triple-helix DNA, as seen in this intense sneak peek from tonight’s Zoo (CBS, 9/8c).

RelatedZoo Renewed for Season 3 at CBS

In “Sins of the Father,” Jackson and Abraham (played by James Wolk and Nonso Anozie) track down the missing Elizabeth Oz (Bess Armstong). Suffice it to say, Mom could very much use a visit from Mary Kay and a SuperCuts gift card. Having apparently also been injected with the triple-helix DNA by her husband/Jackson’s father, Elizabeth turned for the worse much quicker than her son. »

Zoo and Big Brother Renewed by CBS

10 August 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We have good news for fans of Zoo and Big Brother!

Both shows have been renewed by CBS. 

The news was confirmed at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. 

The renewal for Zoo is a welcome one. The series hasn't been performing that great in the ratings, but the show is still very enjoyable. 

If you thought Zoo Season 1 was a bit dull, then you should definitely check out Zoo Season 2. 

It's one of the most improved shows on TV in quite some time.

The promos alone are enough to make anyone want to watch!

Who doesn't want to watch James Wolk try to save the world?

We still have five episodes left this summer of Zoo and it's clear the season is going to conclude with a bang. 

Elsewhere on CBS, Big Brother has been renewed for two more seasons. 

The veteran reality series continues to be one »

TV’s Remake King on Applying ‘Hawaii Five-o’ Lessons to ‘MacGyver’

9 August 2016 9:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Peter Lenkov never expected to become TV’s King of the Remake.

But in a season crawling with series reboots and do-overs, Lenkov’s new take on “MacGyver” for CBS stands out in at least one specific way: The showrunner has successfully done it before.

In recent years, the broadcast networks have had very little luck in taking old titles and giving them a fresh coat of paint. Lenkov, however, unlocked the code with “Hawaii Five-o.”

“Part of it is luck, and part of it is really knowing the property very well, and knowing what ingredients to add to bring it back to life, what worked and didn’t work,” said Lenkov, who admits that even he’s surprised that “Five-o” has already made it to Season 7.

He didn’t expect to do it again. But after CBS shot a “MacGyver” remake as a pilot last season, the network turned to Lenkov for his notes. »
