“Ultimately, it’s a family drama,” showrunner Dave Erickson tells EW. “One of the things that Robert Kirkman and I discussed from the very beginning was, we’re starting a little earlier in the apocalypse. And what that allowed us to do in the pilot and season 1 is establish our core family, establish the problems and the conflicts that they have, and really let that be the initial world that we live in. And we layer in the onset of the apocalypse, we layer in our first walkers, but it’s really an effort to exacerbate the »

Robert Kirkman Talks Fear The Walking Dead, New Photos Revealed

4 June 2015 10:44 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Though it will take place in the early days of the zombie uprising, Fear The Walking Dead will focus on the living more than the dead, and Robert Kirkman recently discussed the show's core characters, including several who are shown in new photos.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly's Dalton Ross, Kirkman discussed the background of Madison, the series' widowed mother of two (Kim Dickens):

"Madison is a character whose husband died. And she’s been raising her kids on her own, so she’s a character that has experienced a very abrupt change to her life that she has had to adapt to."

Kirkman also talked about Madison's kids, Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) and Nick (Frank Dillane), who are complete opposites:

"Alicia is your atypical teenage girl. She excels at school. She’s on her way to college... She’s kind of the model student and the model child.

"In the face of that, »

Showrunner Dave Erickson Talks Fear The Walking Dead

18 May 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In a recent interview, Fear The Walking Dead showrunner Dave Erickson discussed the setting, characters, timeline, and many more details on The Walking Dead companion series.

Speaking with THR, Erickson discussed Fear The Walking Dead in detail, providing some insightful glimpses into the early days of the living dead uprising and giving us plenty to look forward to:

Erickson on how the companion series compares time-wise with the first episode of The Walking Dead:

"The goal was to loosely track the period of those four or five weeks that Rick Grimes was in his coma. I wouldn't say that we end the season at the exact same point where Rick wakes up, but it'll loosely be in that time frame. Things will have gone very bad by the end of season one."

On how Kirkman doesn't want to divulge what caused the zombie apocalypse, preferring instead to explore its »

Mad Men has the buzz – but The Good Wife is a better show

13 April 2015 11:29 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Good Wife’s Alicia Florrick is not one of TV’s one-dimensional divas – and she is so much more appealing than Mad Men’s Don Draper. Elizabeth Wurtzel makes the case for the smartest lawyer on our screens

It is that rare time of year, and the last ever, when The Good Wife and Mad Men are on the air at the same time on the same night in tandem in the Us. To me, they are the same show, so this is a lovely early spring kismet. Both tell of the inexplicable, inevitable rise of a career genius with an unruly personal life. Don Draper sold furs before he became the biggest thing on Madison Avenue; Alicia Florrick was a housewife for 13 years before her husband went to jail and she became the biggest thing in a Chicago courtroom. You underestimate people at your peril.

Of course, everyone »

How Advertisers Burrowed Their Way Into Netflix

27 February 2015 12:19 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix doesn’t carry advertising, but that hasn’t kept Madison Avenue from carving out new roosts in one of the video-streaming service’s flagship offerings.

Three popular brews crafted by Anheuser-Busch InBev have found their way into the third season of Netflix’s “House of Cards,” according to Advertising Age, which also suggested Friday that Samsung products will do the same. The companies aren’t necessarily paying for the privilege. Anheuser’s Shock Top, Budweiser and Stella Artois show up in “Cards” because the brewer made the beverages available for the series’ prop masters and set designers, an Anheuser executive told the publication.

Netflix is arguably one of the leading forces in a new kind of television, but even the distributor of “Orange Is the New Black”  can’t avoid one of the medium’s oldest advertising arrangements. For decades, marketers have tapped into a network of prop suppliers, »

TV’s Old Product-Placement Era Could Be Nearing Its End

4 February 2015 12:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When the CW drama “Gossip Girl” launched in the fall of 2007, advertiser interest in the show’s trendy young characters was so intense that At&T, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile and Sprint clawed each other for the right to get phones and gadgets into their hands. Just seven years later, the same crowd seemed indifferent to an even more obvious opportunity: the debut on ABC of “Selfie,” a comedy with a heroine who had a smartphone more or less glued to her palm.

“Product integration never made its way into ‘Selfie,’ which I found surprising,” says Emily Kapnek, creator and showrunner of the Warner Bros.-produced comedy. “Before production started, as always, there was much talk of keeping an eye out for the right partnership — but nothing ever really materialized.”

The absence of obvious markings in “Selfie” from Samsung, Verizon or any of their rivals is one of several signs suggesting »

26 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bruce Lefkowitz, a veteran of the battles to make big cable networks as desirable as broadcast outlets to Madison Avenue, will vie to get Madison Avenue to buy more commercials across the many TV holdings of 21st Century Fox.

Lefkowitz has been named exec VP of advertising sales at Fox Networks Group, and will serve as the No. 2 to Toby Byrne, the onetime head of ad sales at Fox Broadcasting and Fox Sports who was tapped in October to lead a new effort to induce advertisers to consider the company’s broader video portfolio. Together, Byrne (above, pictured), who is president of ad sales for Fox Networks Group, and Lefkowitz will supervise the sale of ad inventory for everything ranging from Fox to FX to Fox Sports 1 (Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network are not under their purview).
