It's 97 years since people managed to do the inevitable -- detonate enough atomic bombs that life as we know it was obliterated.
Earth's survivors exist in a hodgepodge of space stations, and 100 miscreant youth are shot back to the home planet. What sort of world they will find and what sort they will create is the basis for The CW's "The 100," premiering Wednesday, March 19.
The dystopian sci-fi show, which is pronounced "The Hundred," is believable. Set in the near-enough future that viewers are not required to suspend belief that aliens have taken over, the series begins inside the space stations. After the nuclear apocalypse, 12 nations forged their space stations into one.
It is a pretty grim existence.
"It is not a morality tale," Washington tells Zap2it. »
There's a new face in the spy game of "Covert Affairs" Season 5. Nic Bishop ("Body of Proof") has been cast as Ryan McQuaid, a new regular character coming with the return of the show in the summer of 2014.
McQuaid is described as a "handsome, magnetic and charming" man who first meets Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) out in the field. This former Navy Seal and current private contractor (who happens to be worth billions) is at first an uneasy ally for CIA operative Annie. But she soon begins to suspect that McQuaid has a secret agenda.
The 16 episodes of "Covert Affairs" Season 5 will pick up after Annie's return to the CIA fold. Her time deep undercover trying to take down Henry Wilcox has left its mark on the wild-card agent, and Annie will have to pay the price as she tries to return to her old life in the new season. »
The horror movie follows a family in a small country town who must fight against a horde of bloodthirsty infected people in the area, reports the Herald Sun.

It's 7am on a Friday, and I'm on the top floor of the central London shopping centre from which Princess Productions, the company who also make Got To Dance and Sunday Brunch, broadcast Channel 5's weekday news-chat behemoth The Wright Stuff. Wright, the show's titular host, is already working on today's script, identifying the biggest stories.
Wright studied drama at uni but made his name as the Mirror's showbiz editor. At 35 ("Too old to be doing showbiz nonsense") he ghost-wrote Martine McCutcheon's autobiography and helped set up teen portal MyKindaPlace. "The week it launched I got a call from Channel 5 saying, 'Do you fancy a five-days-a-week talk show?'" he recalls. "So I quit the internet company." Only then did he realise that he was simply being invited to record a pilot, and the six-week »

Well, that Point Break remake that we’d all like to pretend isn’t happening…is still on the way, after all. Variety is reporting that the film, a redo of Kathryn Bigelow’s classic 1991 action film, has found its Johnny Utah to pit against Gerard Butler’s Bodhi. The original actors to play the roles were Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, respectively. This time around, the man standing on Utah’s surfboard will be Luke Bracey.
Bracey is a a little-known Australian actor who appeared in a soap opera down under called Home and Away. Stateside, his credits include Monte Carlo and G.I. Joe: Retaliation. He was on the recent shortlist to play Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey, a role that would eventually go to Jamie Dornan. In Point Break, he’ll play Utah, an undercover agent that attempts to infiltrate a criminal gang lead by the enigmatic Bodhi. »

It was revealed last month that 300 and Olympus Has Fallen star Gerard Butler was in final negotiations to join the cast of the upcoming remake of 1991 cult classic, Point Break as Bodhi (a role originally filled by Patrick Swayze). Well, according to a new report, Alcon Entertainment has now found its Johnny Utah in the form of Luke Bracey.
Bracey will take on the role made famous by Keanu Reeves, and the Home and Away actor’s biggest role to date was as the body – not the voice – of Cobra Commander in G.I. Joe: Retaliation. He also stars in Nicholas Sparks upcoming adaptation The Best Of Me.
Invincible’s Ericson Core is directed the remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s action classic, while the screenplay was penned by Salt and Total Recall scribe Kurt Wimmer. Filming begins this summer for a planned 2015 release.
There’s no synopsis for the movie as of yet, »

Former Home and Away actor Bracey will next be seen in The Best of Me.
Watch a trailer for the original Point Break below: »
Pointless remake Point Break has found its new Johnny Utah, the part that Keanu Reeves played in the superb Kathryn Bigalow original. The person who will fill the very large boots of Reeves is Australian actor Luke Bracey, a relatively unknown thesp who appeared in last year’s GI Joe: Retaliation. Gerard Butler has already been cast as Bodhi, a role played by the late, great Patrick Swayze in the 1991 original.
Kurt Wimmer has written the screenplay for the film, which will revolve around the world of extreme sports, rather than just sticking to surfing which was the focus in the 1991 movie. Utah was the undercover cop who infultrated the surfing gang who had a sideline in robbing banks as the ‘Dead Presidents.’
