Inside Look of Hart of Dixie’s 61 Candles

22 hours ago

CW loves to do a spin on past successful entertainment projects, and this time it is for Hart of Dixie. Rachel Bilson and the rest of the show deal with concerns over babies, parents and life in the episode “61 Candles”. It will be a take off of John Hughes 16 Candles as someone does end up with a forgotten birthday! Luckily they will fill it up with Rachel’s cold feet over baby. You can catch the producer preview clip for the March 6th episode down below.

I am glad that this show was able to have this season. It seems like the drama has flown nicely and we are seeing a build up to what we can assume to be even bigger things. I hope CW will allow us to see how the story unfolds, especially after little baby Hart is born. Life will only become more crazy for everyone »

Alec Baldwin To Star in HBO Show

5 March 2015 3:44 PM, PST

Just when you expected HBO to not get more “trashy”, Alec Baldwin is heading their way. Yes, the controversial actor will be returning to TV for a new production that remains to be untitled. He will play the mayor of NYC, Joe Byrne. He will be a very rich and talked about man of NYC who finds himself being thrusted upon the role of mayor after their former one is no longer able to do the job. The show is expected to have darker plots, but they will also keep those more in check. It will star filming in September on location. No word yet on when the show will premier.

From the description of Alec’s role, it sort of sounds based off of Donald Trump. It will be interesting to see if his team picks up on this and to see if they do anything to throw the show off tracks. »

Big Bang Theory Honored Leonard Nimoy

5 March 2015 12:54 PM, PST

Science fans around the world was eager to see how The Big Bang Theory would honor Spock, aka Leonard Nimoy. Earlier this week the great actor passed away leaving a hole in the world of all things sci-fi and brainy. Thus fans were wondering how they would honor the actor who helped to shape the show. They closed it out with a memory card and a thank you message by Chuck Lorre who owed much of his shows success to him. Here is what they said.

The impact you had on our show and our lives is everlasting

We love how simple and sweet they kept it. Those are the kind of messages that have more meaning as they really speak from the heart. It is just a shame that Leonard Nimoy never had the change to actually appear on a show that made his name a household name once »

Fox Considers The Expendables Mini Series

5 March 2015 7:37 AM, PST

Fox is serious about growing their superhero styled shows as they now consider The Expendables. Yes, Sylvester Stallone’s franchise is now being considered for a mini series that would span the 3 films. He would produce the project for the network as the franchise was his baby. However, he will not star in the possible series. Fox has ordered for the script to be written. As for who will be on the possible show, rumor has it that it will be big TV stars and not the original cast.

The idea is a fun one, but I am not sure if it is worth it. I would think that Fox would want to break out of things and do some other projects. They need a little more flavors thrown in if they wish to be taken seriously as a network at this point. Maybe they can have Sylvester Stallone write »

4 March 2015 7:42 PM, PST

Empire is easily one of the juiciest shows to come out recently, as they follow Lucious Lion and his crazy life. Now we get find out more about his son Andre. Trai Byers plays Andre who has quickly become a character known for losing his touch to reality. Andre is known to have mental issues and without good choices being made, he quickly unravels. Trai opened up about the powerful, sad scene that left many shocked as well as show more of who he really is. Here is what Trai had to say about his character and his relationship to his dad.

Lucious, we have to remember, is very calculated and very calculating. That [disapproval] is something that he’s held onto for a while — and now he can play that card. It’s useful for him to play that card, especially when he’s been saving everything for Hakeem for the long haul. »

Mike Epps To Take on Uncle Buck Role

4 March 2015 3:32 PM, PST

ABC has found their new Uncle Buck, Mike Epps. This news came at the heels of the series being announced as well as the news of them changing the John Hughes classic. Instead of using the original casting style choices, ABC has decided to change it to African American roles. The network is working hard to shape up their diversity, which could explain the new direction of Uncle Buck. Mike will play Russel Buck who is seriously immature for a man of his age. Nia Long will also join the show as his sister-in-law, Alexis.

Wow, they are wasting no time with this project. I am eager to see how it turns out. I doubt their casting changes will affect it much as they seem to be sticking to the original plot. However, since this was a big change we can see why original Hughes fans’ may be concerned of »

Kris Lemche Lands CW Show Role

4 March 2015 12:20 PM, PST

Congratulations to good looking Kris Lemche. The actor has landed himself a new role on a new TV show for CW, which is a reboot of Tales from the Dark Side. He will be the main star of the show Newman, who finds himself dealing with events that revolve around the darkside. The show will likely premier next season as the network works on filling up their casting que of the show.

Talk about a different role for the former Emily of New Moon and Joan of Arcadia star. Kris has an impressive resume that does not highlight enough success for his talent. Hopefully CW and Tales from the Dark Side roles will fix that record for him. He needs a lot more acclaim for what he has brought to the work of TV and while CW may be a better fit, we also do not want to forget his fun roles. »

Damian Dark To Join Arrow

4 March 2015 7:59 AM, PST

CW is coming up with the heavy hitters for Arrow, as they bring in more Batman characters. The latest one that is reported to be heading to Oliver Queen will be Damian Dark. His character will be brought in during the third season finale as a way to introduce him before his big role starts in season 4. The character is thought to be a spin on Damian Wayne, as a dark foe that will not be an easy one for Oliver to battle with. CW has yet to confirm if Mr. Dark will be a take off of Damian Wayne, but the role will certainly be a big one. So far we have no word on who will play the role yet.

How do you feel about a possible Damian Wayne kind of guy? I think it will add more depth to the show, as well as to Oliver who »

David Spade Returning TV with Fameless

3 March 2015 7:43 PM, PST

David Spade is finally making an attempt to return to TV. Fameless is his next project with TruTV which will be a mix of Punked and Candid Camera. The show will be a reality prank show that will feature guests who believe they will be on a different game/reality show. However, a sketch will be written around them and shock the poor souls before they are informed that they were pranked. Each season will have 8 episodes, but we have no time line when the first season starts up.

I love that David is taking a risk. It will be interesting to see how they will pull this off Hopefully his network will be giving them a decent budget to work with to make the show better. It seems like his idea will be fun, so as long as TruTV backs it enough-i think David Spade has a legit chance at a comeback. »

Sarah Michelle Gellar to Go Animated in Star Wars

3 March 2015 12:45 PM, PST

Poor Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sarah Michelle Gellar. The pint size actress has found herself pining for a TV return only to have it fail twice in a few years. Now she is throwing in her towel and goes to Disney Xd for Star Wars. Yes, she is attached to the second season of Star Wars Rebels as they announced the news. She has a unknown role so far that will be seen throughout the season. She will be joining her own hubby, Freddie Prinze Jr. who has a permanent role in the series. As for when fans can expect a second season, that remains to be seen.

I am glad that Sarah found a role for herself, but that has to hurt slightly. She was once a high demand star and now she cannot get her foot in the door for a lasting project. She is talented and has »

SNL Heads to China

3 March 2015 7:34 AM, PST

Yes, you read the headline correctly-Saturday Night Live is supposed to be heading to China. The heavy, regulated media in the country seems to be lifting up their bans as of late. HBO series and other shows have been slowly allowed into the country which likely heavily edits the content. Their government has strict rules on what they believe to be acceptable which includes no mocking of their culture. This of course is a big shock for fans of Saturday Night Live, which mocks everything. However, we should slow down as it isn’t as promising as hoped.

China is set to create their version of the show. That means they will have total control on what will be shown or created, which will likely lack anything negative about their way of life. Sohu is working with NBC on how to go about this as they plan on creating it. »

SpongeBob Won’t Take on Iran

2 March 2015 7:17 PM, PST

Before the world and fans of Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob Squarpants freaks out, the rumors are not true! The world became concerned the yellow sponge was reportedly taking their adult references too far with the topic of Iran. The story was reportedly about an epic battle that would not end well for him. The rumor stated that this would be how they would premier their 10th season thanks to a hacked IMDb page. Nickelodeon has not released any details on when or how they will premier it this year. Not the best way to confirm the news, but better than seeing SpongeBob’s life ending.

I am sure parents are glad, as well as the core fans of the show. The series has dealt with some not so great feedback over more adult themes. Sure, they have not dealt with death or war seriously, but other “faults” were found by some. »

2 March 2015 3:17 PM, PST

CW is bringing good zombies to their lineup this month, as shown in the iZombie. The show follows Olivia “Liv” Moore , a former med student who found herself as part zombie working on a morgue for food supply. However, with that comes a new job of solving crimes as by eating brains she can read their memories. Yes, very gory and gross, but also wise! CW just released the new trailer for the show as it is set to premier on March 17th. You can watch it down below.

I am impressed by the trailer. The show looks like it will be a lot better than I expected. It will be a nice twist with slight humor on the zombie trend. Hopefully it will be as good as their trailer shows it as. I know that they have my interest now and I am pretty sure that others will be »

DisneyXD is running with the fans of Star Wars and they are serious about bringing it to TV. The news broke that they have a new project coming up called Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales. Yes, the empire of Disney is going to merge the two huge fandoms for a major success. The show will re-tell all of the movies into smaller sections with Lego styled animation. It is expected to be intense for an animated show, as it will follow the franchise closely. The series has no premiere date set.

Wow, this sounds huge. I am not sure how fans of Legos and Star Wars will feel about. Both franchise has been long overused and to pair them up together for a mega success, it seems sad. Hopefully it will be done in good taste with decent scripts. That may be the only saving grace that they have »
