Brenda Horsfield obituary

18 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

People described my friend Brenda Horsfield, who has died at the age of 88, as a force of nature. A willowy six-footer with a mane of fair hair, she was never shy of sharing her sometimes idiosyncratic opinions. She had a distinguished career as a BBC television producer, flew aircraft with the Women’s Raf Volunteer Reserve and was an expert glider pilot. She affected an aristocratic hauteur which masked a surprising degree of vulnerability and insecurity.

Born in Wallington, Surrey, Brenda was the daughter of Reginald Barnard, a civil servant, and his wife, Margaret (nee MacFarlane). After Reginald’s death in 1932, Margaret played the piano for silent movies; she remarried to a pilot, Derrick Horsfield, in 1936, and Brenda and her younger sister, Carson, both adopted the name Horsfield.

17 October 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Morris Chestnut has joined Robert De Niro, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Dave Bautista and Gina Carano in the Scott Mann-directed Bus 657. He plays the role of Derrick “Dog” Prince in the film that began shooting this week in Alabama, with Randall Emmett and George Furla producing for Emmett/Furla/Oasis.

Recap: 'Big Brother' Thursday - Eviction and Christine-Cody Shaming

28 August 2014 7:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's another "Big Brother" Thursday. Follow along for the normal live-blogging fun leading up to eviction. 9:01 p.m. "Tonight, your alliance is in jeopardy," Julie Chen tells us as the episode begins. That seems unfair. The hamsters in the House aren't required to still be in an alliance in the first week. Why do I have to stick with Team America? 9:03 p.m. When we left off, Cody was talking about making a big move, but then not making one, Victoria's head was swelling to the size of a watermelon and causing her to pass out and Donny was better than Team America didn't make "Saving Donny" into their mission for the week. Good times. Donny and Nicole are sitting on the Block. 9:04 p.m. It sure seemed like Donny's elimination was inevitable when we left off, but it's time for some complications in the form of »

Recap: 'Big Brother' Wednesday - Snarking With Andy Herren

28 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

No use throwing an old-fashioned Zach tantrum on this very languid Thursday morning. Let's face the facts like cool, serene Derrick: The Wednesday edition of "Big Brother" was criminally dull this week, and that's -- Stuart Smalley voice engaged! -- Ok. The rigged Pov challenge resulted in an expected victory for the Detonators against Donny, Christine found herself floundering in her un-fascinating second life on the show, and Victoria commanded almost 80 seconds of screentime by inviting new teeth into her mouth. Yes, that's right: Victoria's teeth are more exciting houseguests than Victoria.  To help us analyze the remaining players in the game, we invited our pal Andy Herren -- the winner of "Big Brother 15" -- to drop some commentary about the houseguests. We'll handle this in an orderly, completely asinine fashion.    Cody: Hot Guy Playing a Cold War  Andy Herren: Okay, so Cody has been getting a lot »

‘Castle’ Spinoff ‘Derrick Storm’ TV Series in Development

21 August 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

On television, spinoffs aren’t a new phenomenon. Police procedural heavy hitters like CSI and NCIS have managed to replicate their formulas many times over (to varying degrees of success). But outside of the procedural dramas, spinoffs have a harder time getting off the ground. The Supernatural spinoff Bloodlines didn’t last long on The CW, while CBS passed on How I Met Your Dad.

ABC is taking a less conventional approach with an upcoming series based on the comedy/drama procedural Castle, following fictional author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and NYPD detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic).

Variety reports ABC is in the early stages of developing a new show based on the ‘Derrick ...

Recap: 'Big Brother' Wednesday - 5 Ways This Episode Ruled

21 August 2014 4:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I thought about it. Then I thought about it again. Turns out I'm not exaggerating or brainwashed (like Zingbot, our precious gyrating robot pal who visited the houseguests this week) regarding this week's episode. It really was fantastic, from the stupid Team America challenge to the Pov game to the climactic final moment. Best episode of the season? Could be. Here are five reasons why.  1. Donny is innocent but loves being scary as hell.  For whatever reason, Donny has ended up outside the game's major alliance and there doesn't seem to be much of a way in. Our poor bearded chickadee. Sigh. But you have to give Donny "props" (quoth Zingbot) for using one of the few tools left in his arsenal: manipulation of the most impressionable person in the house, Zach. The little speech Donny gave Zach that planted necessary paranoia in his head about getting backdoored? Flawless. And also terrifying. »

Recap: 'Big Brother' Wednesday - We Judge With Andy Herren

17 July 2014 2:48 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Here's a meager suggestion: Cherish this time now, because we've arrived at the most enjoyable stage of the "Big Brother" season. While there are still plenty of obvious losers with cellophane eyes and candy brains who need to leave Chenbot Manor and head back to their Not So Elite modeling gigs, we've finally arrived at the moment where we can recognize everyone in the house, identify their weaknesses and strengths, and make real predictions. During last night's Power of Veto episode, I came up with five big points to consider as the season progresses. To validate my points, I'm dragging along Andy Herren -- the winner of BB15 -- to share his thoughts on the players too.  Here are our five biggest takeaway's from Wednesday's Pov spectacular.  1. Donny is the best. And the worst. Andy Herren: I hate Donny. Don’t get me wrong, I Love Donny, but that’s why I hate him. »

Big Brother: What the Contestants Won't Be Doing in the House This Summer (Video)

25 June 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Big Brother casts have always been known for their outrageous characters and big personalities, but last season the show also became known for scandal. After season 15 contestant Aaryn Gries sparked a controversy by making racist remarks, the entire house was placed under a more-scrutinized microscope, and several contestants were let go from their jobs. And the season 16 contestants - including Ariana Grande's half-brother Frankie - understand more than ever that America is watching (and judging) their every move. As the 16 contestants prepared to enter the Big Brother house, they told People the things they hoped America would not »

Yesterday, the peeps over at CBS finally delivered up the photos and intel of who in the hell we'll be seeing enter the Big Brother season 16 house. I also took a look at all the video introductions, and they did get some interesting people. Zach is cocky as hell and has sort of a Dr. Will charisma about him. Then there's a Gina Marie 2.0 chick in there, named Paola Shea. She's actually friends with Gina Marie, and their vibes are so similar it's uncanny. She's a NYC DJ, and seems like she'll be pretty entertaining. Anyways, without any further ado, lets go over these castmembers. Starting from the top row, your left to right, we've got: Zach Rance – 23, Palm Beach Fl, Recent Grad and Unemployed, Derrick Levasseur – 30, Providence Ri, Police Officer, Caleb Reynolds – 26, Hopkinsville Ky, Hunting Guide, Jocasta Odom – 33, Lovejoy Ga, Minister, Hayden Voss – 21, Long Beach CA, Pedicab Driver, and Christine Brecht – 23, Tucson Az, »

'Big Brother': New cast? Snap judgments!

19 June 2014 4:13 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Big Brother returns in six days. And early Thursday, we got our first look at the 16 people who agreed to spend the summer trapped inside an urban treehouse debasing themselves in the hopes of winning half a million dollars. Hopefully without the racism this time! Soon we’ll get to know all about these contestants: Their hopes, their dreams, their thoughts, their schemes. But in the interest of maintaining a shallow, skin-deep perspective on the pantheon-worthy reality show, EW set two Big Brother obsessives to work on snap judging the new cast. Warning: Baseless theories and celebrity siblings ahead!

“The Carrie Diaries” Graduates and an “American Horror Story” Record

Bravo has renewed Top Chef for a 12th season. That’s probably not a surprise considering that Bravo just announced it’s developing another sequel for the hit competition show.

Also renewed: Cinemax’s Banshee which means more Antony Starr hotness and Hoon Lee fierceness.

MTV has ordered 12 episodes of Finding Carter, a series about a teen who finds out she was kidnapped from her family as a child. The series’ cast includes Alexis Denisof, Cynthia Watros along with Meredith Baxter in a recurring role.

Layers of History: Domink Graf's "Tatort: Aus der Tiefe der Zeit"

27 January 2014 4:32 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: Putting coffee in the fridge.

With the upcoming Berlinale competition premiere of Die geliebten Schwestern (The Beloved Sisters, actually shot back in 2012), Dominik Graf remains in the festival spotlight after a big Rotterdam retrospective last year (full disclosure: programmed and accompanied by the Ferroni Brigade) introduced the work of this astonishing—and astonishingly prolific—German director to international audiences. But while his Berlin-bound Schiller epic is one of Graf's increasingly rare excursions into the theatrical terrain, his TV schedule has been as hectic as ever, with several new works lined up for release this year. Thus, somewhat shockingly, 2013 saw only a single Graf premiere: Aus der Tiefe der Zeit ("From the Depths of Time") is his third contribution for Germany's enduringly popular prime time crime show Tatort ("Crime Scene"), and confirms Graf's maddening tempo—both in its appearance and execution: The episode was shot in late spring »

Notebook's 6th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2013

13 January 2014 11:53 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2013—in theaters or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2013 to create a unique double feature.

All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2013 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch in that perfect world we know doesn't exist but can keep dreaming of every time we go to the movies.
