Xena Reboot Not Going Forward at NBC

13 hours ago

Xena’s battle cry has fallen silent for now: NBC is not moving forward with its planned reboot of Xena: Warrior Princess.

NBC entertainment president Jennifer Salke confirmed the reboot’s demise to The Hollywood Reporter: “Nothing is happening on that right now. We looked at some material; we decided at that point that it didn’t warrant the reboot… I’d never say never on that one because it’s such a beloved title, but the current incarnation of it is dead.”

The Xena reboot had Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost, The 100) on board to write the pilot and serve as producer, »

American Horror Story: Cult's Main Title Sequence Features Trump and Hillary

20 hours ago

American Horror Story: Cult isn’t playing down this season’s Trump overtones in its main title sequence.

As promised by series creator Ryan Murphy, a video of Ahs: Cult‘s opening credits was released Monday, appeasing longtime fans who lamented its omission last season. (You know, among other lamentations.) The key takeaway: President Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both figure somewhat prominently in the new opening.

21 hours ago

Iron Fist baddie Ramon Rodriguez is punching in at The Affair — and it looks like he’s taking aim at Alison’s (Ruth Wilson) heart.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Rodriguez is joining the Showtime drama’s upcoming fourth season for a major arc as Ben, a Marine veteran now employed by the Vha. Ben’s work on Ptsd will intersect with Alison’s new career path as a grief counselor (and, presumably, lead to some heavy petting and then fornication — the show is called The Affair for a reason!).

NBC 'Backing Off' on This Fall's Planned Must-See TV Branding Revival

22 hours ago

It looks unlikely that NBC’s iconic Must-See TV tagline will follow Will & Grace back to Thursday nights this fall. Peacock Chairman Robert Greenblatt tells TVLine that the network’s decision to keep This Is Us on Tuesdays — after initially announcing it would join the Will & Grace revival on Thursday — has led him to jettison (or at least dramatically scale down) plans to resurrect the Must-See TV branding campaign.

“We’re probably backing off on that,” Greenblatt says. “I don’t think you’ll see it that much.”

Game of Thrones: Is This Season Sacrificing Logic for All-Out Action?

22 hours ago

No show on TV does spectacle quite like Game of Thrones. And Season 7 has certainly delivered on that front, from the fiery carnage unleashed by Daenerys’ dragons in “The Spoils of War” to this week’s icy white walker melee. Fans who tune into GoT solely to see bad-ass battle scenes are surely happy with Season 7… but for those of us who also enjoy things like character development and logical consistency, this season has been a surprisingly frustrating one.

Top of the Lake: China Girl Review: Elisabeth Moss Shines (Again) in Sundance's Superb Crime Drama

22 hours ago

Elisabeth Moss will be a top contender at this year’s Emmys, and deservedly so, for her work in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale. And she might as well make plans for a return trip next year, too, based on her knockout performance in Sundance’s gritty, mesmerizing crime drama Top of the Lake: China Girl.

A sequel to 2013’s Top of the Lake, China Girl — a six-hour Australian miniseries premiering Sunday, Sept. 10 at 9/8c and airing over three consecutive nights — finds Moss’ police detective Robin Griffin back in Sydney, still guarded and on edge after the traumatic events of last season. »

Emmys Poll 2017: What Should Win for Outstanding Limited Series?

23 hours ago

The Outstanding Limited Series category at this year’s Emmys is just as jam-packed with quality TV as the Comedy and Drama categories — but which one of the five nominees will come out on top?

The frontrunner has to be HBO’s Big Little Lies, the star-studded portrait of the Monterey upper crust that piled up 16 nominations, including nods for stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. But it’ll face stiff competition from a pair of FX entries: Fargo, which has now racked up 52 total nominations across three installments, including a Limited Series win in 2014 for Season 1; and Feud: Bette and Joan, »

Solar Eclipse 2017: Best Episodes to Watch From Tvd, Mad Men and More

23 hours ago

On Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, the moon will pass between our planet* and the sun, creating a total solar eclipse — and if you think we can’t find a way to relate that to television, you’re obviously a new TVLine reader. (Welcome, by the way.)

In truth, the whole “solar eclipse” thing is old hat for the small screen; some of our favorite shows have built memorable episodes around the astronomical phenomenon — and you don’t need any special glasses to watch ’em.
