WEtvDrops The Divide

3 hours ago

WEtv’s first attempt at a scripted series failed, as they announced no second season for The Divide. Richard Lagravenese and Tony Goldwyn’s justice system based show did not do anything that other shows from the past did not touch on. The unique show with not the best star power was also deeply ignored with a summer release. The first and only season actually even ended without much say as it wrapped up back in August. The network finally confirmed the news that everyone expected this week.

I am sad that it failed. I don’t think WEtv knew exactly what they got themselves in with their first scripted show. Most of those need a more heavy hand in PR than their counterparts that are reality tv. However, we do applaud them for stepping out of their comfort and perhaps they learned what they need to do next time. »

Supergirl Will Give Kara A Sister

5 hours ago

Things are shaping up for Supergirl, an upcoming TV series based upon the comic series. Now they have confirmed Kara Danvers (aka: Kara Zor-El) will have an adoption family, including a jealous but wise sister. Alexandra “Alex” Danvers will be a sister who became jealous of Kara’s powers and decided to see what she can do to help her. Thus the two adults sisters end up working as a pair to save the world. The series is still in the early stages of being planned out and no cast choices have been made.

I am excited for this idea. It will make the show different and perhaps even comical. It will sort of remind me of other great female/galpal shows that we have seen before. I am sure Kara and Alex will bring us laughter and joy, especially since they will be a dynamic duo. I am eager »

HBO Plots 7th (Maybe Final) Game of Thrones Season

7 hours ago

HBO is not wasting time to plot the 7th season of Game of Thrones. The popular series was renewed for a fifth and sixth season this summer, with high hopes for more episodes. Now HBO is trying to lock in the cast into a contractor for their 7th season which could be a possible end game for the show. This includes Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Lena Headey being signed on for the yet to even be confirmed season.

This is exciting and sad news. The network has hinted that if they reach a 7th season, that would be where they end. So it will be very sad news to hear that a 7th will finally take place, which will also be an amazing feat for a series based on an unfinished book series. I am sure HBO is counting on that, but we do applaud them for trying here to prepare for it. »

8 hours ago

HBO wants to start having more comedies on their network and they found just the person to work with, Kyra Sedgewick. The actress who starred in the former series The Closer, will be producing and starring in the untitled show. Kyra will play the lead role of Kate, a woman who finds herself lost after leaving a life of being a nun in the past. Can she keep it all together and succeed in the world that she left behind for so long? Only time will tell and fans can expect a 2015 or 2016 release of the show.

I am happy for Kyra, I think this will be a good sign of her career. She has worked hard and isn’t a name that is thrown around enough for her skills. However, we will also be excited to see how she fits in the role of being a producer and one »

29 October 2014 7:16 PM, PDT

Neil Patrick Harris is returning back to TV for sure now. The funny man has officially joined the horror based series American Horror Story, which is a show that took the world by storm. At least for a temporary story line, as he will play a chameleon salesman for the 11th and 12th episodes. Best of all, his real life partner David Burtka will show up the season finale of the show. Neil was earlier invited to the show via Twitter, which Ryan Murphy gladly made sure did happen and even entertained his ideas.

We are happy for Neil as it seems as his career is heating up again. Ever since his old show ended he has found new gigs, including his own variety show. So a guest spot on the show is a great way to get himself prepared for his big return to TV, as well allow fans »

28 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT

Now the star Lou Diamond Phillips has hinted at a possible new home that will allow the series to return even stronger than ever.

MTV Officially Picks up Scream

28 October 2014 6:39 PM, PDT

MTV is going way off the course with the TV series reboot of film franchise, Scream. It was recently announced that Ghost Face would not kick start the show and may never join. This shocked the world and even more so made fans concerned. However, MTV is running with the bad press by officially picking up the series. It will officially premier sometime in October of 2015.

The series has had trouble from the start. They announced they cast and then switched the lead out within a matter of weeks. Now it seems like MTV is determined to see the series through despite of their issues. Hopefully it will all come together nicely since the first season will only have 10 episodes. That should at least give them a short season to work with and hopefully iron out these details before then. That might be the only way they can have a decent series. »

NBC Picks Debra Messings Dramedy for Full Season

28 October 2014 4:38 PM, PDT

Good news for Debra Messing fans. Her new dramedy Mysteries of Laura was just picked up for a full season of 22 episodes. NBC ordered up 9 more fluffy and well disliked show. This comes as a surprise as many people strongly disliked it after seeing the pilot episode. However, it appears that NBC finds enough of a fan base to allow it to have one full season despite of the bad media it has received. Including DVR playback counted in, it only has a 1.8 demo rating.

I am really starting to question what NBC is thinking here. They seem to have no clue on what they are doing. I hope that they catch on and find something to show that they are not trying to grasp at just anything. It appears at this rate that they have lack of direction in where they wish to go next. Perhaps they need some »

ABC To Develop Wire in Blood for Us

27 October 2014 6:34 PM, PDT

Americans love British TV shows and ABC is taking notice. It is reported that they will develop their own version of the crime drama that won awards, Wire in Blood. It follows the lives of a police detective Elizabeth Chase and her newly hired clinical psychologist Dr. Tony Hill. Together they solve crimes before they happen again based on the criminals behavior. Here is what ABC had to say about the project.

Bringing the iconic character Tony Hill to American audiences has been a passion of ours for a number of years, We are thrilled to be partnering with the Endemol Studios team on this exciting endeavor.

It impresses me that it has taken them this long to announce the plans. Especially since they have had a passion for this idea for a while now. It will be interesting to see how they develop it and who they pick to play the star roles. »

Bob Odenkirk has been one busy man working on the much awaited Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul. Bob recently caught up with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about the show, his opinion on watching himself on screen and also on what other career highlights he has had. He was quick to point out that the spin-off will be mostly a drama, with some humor thrown in. However, he was also pointing out that he isn’t sure how the episodes turned out, due to him refusing to watch himself on TV. Here are a few highlights from his interview.

It’s total drama….It’s 85 percent drama, 15 percent comedy(this is regarding the rumors it would be mostly a comedy)…..(on the subject of his character doing more than reacting to things)That doesn’t happen so much with secondary characters because they don’t need to have that depth, »

Davina in is Charge of Mikael – The Originals Trailer

27 October 2014 8:20 AM, PDT

Things are heating up for Mikael and his hidden side. He finds himself at the hands of Davina, much to his dismay due to him trying to hide from Klaus. However, while Davina is drunk on control, Mikael is not so much into being under the reigns of a sassy teen. Especially when he himself is on a mission and loves to be drunk on power as well. So it could become messy between the two quickly. You can check out the trailer down below for “Live and Let Die” episode that airs tonight.

I am so excited to see where this goes. I am thinking Mikael won’t wait too long to put her back in her place. Especially since she seemed to be so gleeful over his suffering and having him under her control. It may not end well for her, but then again perhaps she should have »
