18 hours ago

One of the exciting new projects making its debut in 2015-2016 TV season is the animated DC TV series Vixen, which will be coming to the CW Seed digital platform. The show got announced back in January during the CW panel at the TCA winter press tour by Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim, and we know that we will be getting a sneak peak of the six-episode series next week at San Diego Comic-Con. However, the biggest mystery has been who is actually going to be voicing Mari McCabe, a.k.a Vixen, in the animated series, and today, we got our answer via VixenVarsity, which revealed that TV Guide Magazine’s upcoming special Comic-Con issue features a piece on the new Vixen show. In TV Guide, it’s revealed that actress Megalyn Echikunwoke is going to be voicing the iconic DC character. For those who are unfamiliar with Echikunwoke, her previous work includes The Following, »

Full Wet Hot American Summer Trailer Reunites Old Cast, Gives First Look at Kirsten Wiig and Jon Hamm

20 hours ago

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is easily one of the most anticipated TV events of the summer, and if you weren’t already excited to return to Camp Firewood, the series’ full length trailer will surely get you pumped up. The video below provides us with our first real look at exactly what the Netflix series will be like, and thankfully, it appears just as strange, stupid, and marvelous as David Wain and Michael Showalter’s cult 2001 film. This all-new Wet Hot American Summer trailer reunites the old gang, as the show will take place two months before the events of the original movie, despite the fact that all of the actors are 15 years older (which should only add to wonderful insanity). Additionally, this video offers up first glimpses of new characters played by the likes of Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live) and Jon Hamm (Mad Men), among others. »

Why the Characters of True Detective Season 2 Need to Say Less and Do More

21 hours ago

There’s been a lot written about True Detective Season 2 since it premiered over two weeks ago, and not much of it has been positive. After the series essentially received universal acclaim during its first season (at least until the backlash that occurred after the controversial finale), Season 2 of the HBO drama has been met with a much more mixed response from both critics and viewers, and people have offered plenty of reasons why, from True Detective‘s ultra-commitment to dourness to its obsession with masculinity to poor performances from this season’s leads. However, there’s one explanation, which many others have suggested, that is the cause of several of True Detective‘s problems in its first two episode: the dialogue. All other issues people bring up, from an absence of dynamic characters to lackluster acting, stem from Nic Pizzolatto’s inability to make any of the words coming »

Fatal Attraction Event Series Coming to Fox

1 July 2015 11:52 PM, PDT

If you’re looking at TV trends right now, there are none more popular than adapting films for television and launching event series, both of which are advantageous to networks since movies are familiar properties with built-in audiences, and event series need only last one season but also have the opportunity to continue on if they receive good ratings. Fox, which is already debuting Minority Report, inspired by Steven Spielberg’s 2002 film of the same name, has decided to double up and embrace both of TV’s most popular trends by potentially bringing a Fatal Attraction event series to television. That’s right—this show would be an adaptation of the iconic 1987 thriller, which starred Michael Douglas as Dan Gallagher, an unfaithful Manhattan attorney, and Glenn Close as Alexandra “Alex” Forrest, an editor for a publishing company that becomes Dan’s psychotic mistress. According to Deadline, which first broke the Fatal Attraction news, »

1 July 2015 10:42 PM, PDT

USA are keeping their Suits for another year. The cable network renewed the popular legal drama for a sixth season yesterday after only episode of Season 5, making for Suits‘ quickest renewal since it was picked up for a second season seven weeks into Season 1. “Suits has set the bar high in every way and continues to be a strong performer and marquee property for USA,” USA Network president Chris McCumber said in a statement. “From the incredible on-screen performances and brilliant writing to the aspirational lifestyle portrayed, we look forward to continuing to bring viewers into the world of Suits every week.” “Suits has delivered a smart and sexy roller coaster ride for five seasons,” added Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and President, Universal Cable Productions. “[Suits executive producer] Aaron Korsh has some great surprises for the audience at the end of Season 5 that should really set…

Deutschland 83 Exclusive Video: The Show’s Cast Talks Stunts, Nude Scenes & ’80s Music

1 July 2015 8:41 AM, PDT

Last month, SundanceTV premiered its newest drama Deutschland 83, an eight-part series that has been described as a coming-of-age spy thriller that unfolds just as the Cold War between East and West comes to a head. Created by journalist and author Anna Winger and her husband Joerg Winger, Deutschland 83 has received an incredible amount of acclaim in the weeks since its premiere, with many critics comparing it to FX’s The Americans, one of the richest and most compelling dramas on TV today. While there’s a lot to praise about the show, one of the most impressive parts of Deutschland 83 is the series’ cast, which includes Jonas Nay (Martin Rauch/Moritz Stamm), Sonja Gerhardt (Annett Schnieder), and Ludwig Trepte (Alex Edel), and fortunately, we have an exclusive interview from SundanceTV with all three performers. In the video below, Nay, Gerhardt, and Trepte tackle subjects such as doing their own stunts, »

NBC Cancels American Odyssey After One Season

1 July 2015 8:01 AM, PDT

NBC is ending its Odyssey. The Peacock has cancelled freshman drama American Odyssey after one 13-episode season American Odyssey starred Anna Friel as Odelle Ballard, Peter Facinelli as Peter Decker, Jake Robinson as Harrison Walters, Omar Ghazaoui as Aslam, Nate Mooney as Bob Offer, and Daniella Pineda as Ruby Simms.  The series premiered back on April 5 (aka Easter Sunday) to 5.4 million viewers and a 1.2 demo rating but soon saw its numbers take a dive, as it earned less than half of its demo rating, only garnering a 0.4, in six out of its final eight installments. The show aired its Season 1 (and now series) finale on Sunday night, which featured Odelle making the difficult decision to share her story, holding nothing back about the many secretive and damaging details. With the way the episode ended, there certainly could have been more stories to tell in a second…

Agent Carter Season 2: James D’Arcy and Enver Gjokaj Officially Returning

30 June 2015 9:51 PM, PDT

While we don’t know much about the second season of the Peggy Carter-centered TV serie Marvel’s Agent Carter, which will air when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. goes on its winter hiatus during Season 3 in 2016, San Diego Comic-Con is just a week away, and Marvel TV will be bringing back both shows for a special panel.

How Marvel Can Best Use the Secret Warriors on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

30 June 2015 4:25 PM, PDT

Last week, it was formally announced that Marvel is bringing the Secret Warriors into the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., where Skye/Daisy (Chloe Bennet) will be leading a program of newly discovered gifted people as well as Inhumans. This will be the closest thing that this show will have to an Avengers-type of team on television, and it’s a great opportunity for the series to not just be spy-related but also add a superhero quality to its story. Today, some of us here at TVOvermind will sharing what we believe is the best possible way that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. can bring the Secret Warriors into the McU and how the show can utilize this group throughout Season 3 and beyond. In addition, we will also be discussing which dream members we want to see in S.H.I.E.L.D., consisting of new characters from the »

Alex Trebek Rapped The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Theme Song, And You Need to See It

30 June 2015 11:53 AM, PDT

If you’ve been dying to hear Alex Trebek rap again after the Jeopardy host first showed off his skills in 2014 , last night’s episode of the game show gave you exactly what you wanted. However, instead of dealing with a category that focused on music, the reason why Trebek was called to rap again was because of a TV-related category, which gave contestants the lyrics to the theme song to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Instead of simply saying the words, Trebek went for it, rapping “I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 and yelled to the cabbie, ‘Yo homes, smell ya later!'” And trust me, Alex Trebek saying the words “Yo homes, smell ya later” with such gusto is something you’ll want to listen to again and again. Check out the video of Trebek rapping below: I now want Trebek to sing (or rap, if the song… »

Scream Queens: Could Kate Hudson Have a Surprise Guest Role in Fox’s New Series?

30 June 2015 10:25 AM, PDT

Fox’s Scream Queens already boasts one of the most impressive casts of any new series premiering this fall, but could the Fox comedy-horror series have its first big-name guest star lined up, too? While nothing has been confirmed right now, a post from Instagram yesterday has us wondering if Kate Hudson will soon be joining her brother Oliver on Scream Queens, at least in a cameo of sorts. The reason for our speculation (and again, this is all purely speculation) comes from Hudson’s response to a photo that Scream Queens star Lea Michele posted yesterday from the show’s set. “Rise and shine! Early morning at #ScreamQueens ready to go with my green smoothie! Happy Monday everyone!” Michele wrote, to which Hudson later responded to by saying, “I’m coming soon!” You can see her response in the photo below: Now, there’s many reasons why Hudson could »

Outlander Season 2: Harry Potter’s Frances de la Tour Cast as Mother Hildegarde

30 June 2015 9:38 AM, PDT

Well, look at this bit of “magical” casting for OutlanderHarry Potter actress Frances de la Tour has signed on to play Mother Hildergarde in the second season of the Starz drama, another important role in Diana Gabaldon’s second novel, Dragonfly in Amber, the book on which Season 2 of Outlander will be based. In the novel, Mother Hildegarde is the commanding Mother Superior of Paris’ L’Hopital des Anges, a hospital at which Claire spends a a large amount of her time at in Dragonfly in Amber. Therefore, we should definitely expect de la Tour and Caitriona Balfe to share quite a few scenes together. In addition to her role as Madame Maxime, the headmistress of Beauxbatons Academy and love interest for Hagrid, in the Harry Potter films, de la Tour is also a Tony Award-winning actress, whose other film roles include Into the Woods and Tim Burton‘s live-action Alice in Wonderland. »

Five Reasons You Should Be Watching Lifetime’s UnREAL

29 June 2015 1:49 PM, PDT

Summer TV can sometimes be a barren wasteland of programming, as broadcast networks mostly dish out cheap, reality series and game shows that will hopefully grab them somewhat decent ratings. However, in recent years, there’s been a push for more quality summer series, which is why we’ve seen the likes of ABC and CBS create shows such as The Astronaut Wives ClubRookie Blue, and Under the Dome. Meanwhile, USA is also diving into new territory with Mr.  Robot and Complications, and HBO is testing its unproven summer lineup of True Detective, Ballers, and The Brink. However, the best series I’ve watched this summer by far has been Lifetime’s UnREAL, which airs its fifth episode tonight at 10 p.m. Both a biting satire of reality TV and an interesting character drama, UnREAL has been able to pull of the impressive feat of being dark, fun, and compelling television, »

NBC Officially Cuts Ties With Donald Trump Due to Controversy

29 June 2015 11:29 AM, PDT

“You’re fired.” Donald Trump is usually the one delivering that phrase to contestants on The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice, but he was on the receiving end of those words today, as NBC has officially cut ties with the Republican presidential candidate. The network’s decision to discontinue  its “business relationship” with Trump comes after a week of constant pressure from viewers over Trump’s recent comments regarding illegal immigration from Mexico, as he suggested that immigrants largely consist of criminals. After Trump’s controversial comments, a petition at Change.org was created, requesting that NBC cut all ties with Trump; as of yesterday, June 28, the petition had reached 20,000 signatures. With this decision, NBC, which has  been the home to Trump’s beauty pageants, Miss USA and Miss Universe, will no longer air the competitions. Additionally, Trump will no longer be the host of his reality series The Apprentice or Celebrity Apprentice, »
