Atlas Distribution Company has set an Oct. 27 release date for faith-based drama “Let There Be Light” with conservative political commentator Sean Hannity executive producing, Variety has learned.

Midnight, Texas Review: NBC's Silly Creature Feature Is Just Scary Bad

Midnight, Texas Review: NBC's Silly Creature Feature Is Just Scary Bad
It’s never a great sign when a network show debuts in the dead of summer, more than a year after it was first announced. But those red flags make sense when you actually watch Midnight, Texas (premiering Monday, July 24 at 10/9c on NBC) — an overstuffed, often ridiculous supernatural drama that somehow manages to make a town filled with magical creatures seem crushingly dull.

Entertainment or Propaganda? A Brief and Critical Look at 'Christian Films'

Christian movies: Starring Nicolas Cage, the widely panned 2014 apocalyptic thriller 'Left Behind' was a box office bomb – unlike (relatively) recent popular 'faith movies' such as 'Heaven Is for Real,' 'Son of God' and 'War Room.' A thought on the New Christian American Cinema: Tired of the blatant propaganda found in 'mainstream' Christian movies Two films that might be called “Christian movies” opened last week, and I decided that I wouldn't watch them, write about them, or review them – at least directly. I'm not even going to mention their titles here because I don't promote propaganda films, and that's what this recent advent of Christian movies has become: propaganda. After all, since nearly all American cinema is Christian cinema, the New Christian American Cinema is in fact pure propaganda – not cinema. Worse yet, it bores me. So, here's the thing about what we've come to call

From VHS to VOD #1

I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I can often spend hours upon hours trawling through iTunes looking for new movies to buy… Usually I’ll randomly come across a title I haven’t seen in years and use the “Cast & Crew” links to make my way down the rabbit hole to the more obscure side of Apple’s digital movie service.

Now whilst many will decry that iTunes is a terrible VOD service due to Apple’s desire to lock its audience to their platforms, if you have an Apple TV or iPad be aware – there are some truly obscure films hidden away in the depths of the vast collection of movies. Some of which have been made available in the UK for the first time since VHS and a Lot that have been added to the service in their original uncut form!

Grant Tinker, Revered Former NBC and Mtm Chief, Dies at 90

Grant Tinker, Revered Former NBC and Mtm Chief, Dies at 90
Former NBC chairman-ceo Grant Tinker, a revered producer and executive who founded Mtm Enterprises with Mary Tyler Moore and later rose to the challenge of taking NBC from last place to first, has died. He was 90.

Tinker died Monday at his home in California, according to a report Wednesday on NBC’s “Today.”

Grant Tinker was a great man who made an indelible mark on NBC and the history of television that continues to this day,” NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke said. “He loved creative people and protected them, while still expertly managing the business. Very few people have been able to achieve such a balance. We try to live up to the standards he set each and every day. Our hearts go out to his family and friends.”

The poised, avuncular Tinker’s television career spanned almost half a century, from its inception through the 1990s. He usually took the high road on most of his projects

'Stranger Things' Season 2: Here's a guide to 1984 in pop culture
Just in case you've been living in the Upside Down, let me get you up to speed: Stranger Things Season 2 is officially happening. And as revealed by the show's unreasonably-attractive creators the Duffer Brothers, the new episodes will be set a year after the events of the first season, which would place the characters squarely in the latter days of 1984 (Season 1 took place between November and December of 1983). While that's not a whole lot later, it's still enough time for a massive number of pop-culture and consumer products to have been introduced in the interim, from film to TV to music to technology. So what, pray tell, will Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Nancy, Jonathan and Steve (but not Barb, obvs) be using, watching, wearing, reading and listening to in the new season that wouldn't have been available to them in the prior timeline because they didn't exist yet?

A Look Back at Roma Downey’s Famed ‘Touched by an Angel’ Role

A Look Back at Roma Downey’s Famed ‘Touched by an Angel’ Role
When “Touched by an Angel” premiered in 1994, critics were less than impressed with the heavenly CBS drama.

Despite the dismissive reviews, this sweet saga with fetching Irish lass Roma Downey as the novice angel, saucy Della Reese as the elder angel, and Bradley Cooper look-alike John Dye as the Angel of Death would charm viewers for nine seasons, scoring as a top-10 series for four years. At its height, “Touched by an Angel” reached more than 21 million total viewers a week and remained popular through syndication and DVD releases.

The series got off to a rocky start in the ratings, and a second season was far from a sure thing. Second chances were a big theme in this series, and the show made the most of its own when CBS took a leap of faith after a massive viewer campaign, in which devoted fans swarmed the network with impassioned letters praising the show, and

William Schallert, Former SAG President and ‘Patty Duke Show’ Star, Dies at 93

Amazon Studios Headed For ‘Promised Land’ In Biblical Drama

Since becoming a fully-fledged producer/distributor of drama and comedic content, Amazon has been dealing with some big names. Its upcoming slate features a project from Steven Soderbergh and the company are even courting the indie scene via director Whit Stillman (Barcelona). But the studio’s latest announcement sees them talking to God and entering what could be choppy waters with an epic Biblical pitch called Promised Land. A dramatization of The Book Of Joshua from the Old Testament, their idea is to develop a pilot based around the story of two brothers leading up to the formation of the Israelite nation. An epic saga involving slavery and a perilous journey, the series concept will also no doubt feature the bloody battles that occurred in the name of conquest.

A complex tale to summarize, but it should be intriguing to see Amazon’s approach in this age of historical output like Spartacus,
