Better Call Saul Recap: Shake-ups and Jell-o Cups

55 minutes ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

On a recent drive, I had the opportunity to hear, not once but twice, a radio review of Battle Creek, a cop show whose pilot was written by Vince Gilligan about 12 years ago and shelved by CBS until now. The reviewer praised the show for how cleverly it deviated from the expectations we have of network cop dramas, which are still dominated by badass fluff like CSI: Miami, where our heroes tear through their cases in simple, hour-long arcs, preferably in sunglasses.  As a creator, Gilligan has had an enormously successful career, and not just starting with Breaking Bad — anyone who was writing and producing something like The X-Files before the age of 30 is doing well. But Gilligan’s arc is also the arc of television, of how we watch it and what we expect of it. Part of the reason CBS resuscitated Battle Creek was in an effort to »

'Sons of Liberty' Interview with Dean Norris | Exclusive

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Having debuted on History in January, the exciting miniseries Sons of Liberty is now available on Google Play (clickHere) and Amazon (clickHere). We recently caught up with actor Dean Norris, who stars as Ben Franklin in this 3-part look at our rich American History. Sons of Liberty is a dramatizing of the early American Revolution events in Boston, Massachusetts, the start of the Revolutionary War, and the negotiations of the Second Continental Congress which resulted in the drafting and signing of the 1776 United States Declaration of Independence.

Directed by Kari Skogland, the series theme music was composed by Hans Zimmer. Best known as DEA Agent Schrader on Breaking Bad, Dean Norris currently stars in Under the Dome, where he plays town councilman James "Big Jim".

The X-Files: 15 Guest Stars Who Made It Big

7 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

Of the many shows that debuted in the 1990s, few are as memorable and confounding as The X-Files. Premiering on Fox in 1993, The X-Files would air for 202 episodes, inspire two feature films, bring the supernatural into mainstream media, and launch the term “shipping” into fan vernacular.

Viewers young and old alike were fascinated by Agents Mulder and Scully as they traveled the country to tackle the unknown with badges and guns. The Mulder/Scully relationship remains one of the most compelling in television history, and the crackling chemistry between the two leads skyrocketed the relatively unknown David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson into stardom. Throw in the most whistlable theme song ever composed, and The X-Files was guaranteed to be unforgettable.

Of course, 202 hours of a program that follows FBI agents as they chase monsters and myths and aliens all over the country required an awful lot of guest stars. »

Maps To TV Shows: Is there a popular show you’d really like to watch but you just don’t have time to wade through years of it all at once? Do you just want to know why that one character keeps turning up on Tumblr?

Failed TV pilots that paved the way for breakout hits

24 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Had these pilots been given the green light, we might have been without Breaking Bad, 24, Hannibal, Community and more…

It’s not all grumble and moan round here when TV networks decline to pick up pilots. Sometimes, we’re even grateful.

Hindsight teaches that every so often, passing on a particular show is the best thing a channel could have done. Not ordering one pilot to series spurs its creators on to start another, and frees up its cast to join new projects.

Had the failures below all thrived, there’s a chance we could now be living in a world with no Breaking Bad, Hannibal, or even South Park. Had these pilots gone on to enjoy healthy, lengthy lives, then Jack Bauer, Oberyn Martell, Chandler Bing and more might all be unrecognisable today.

Here then, are the TV pilots we’re grateful weren’t taken to series because their »

Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan would love X-Files return

23 February 2015 10:39 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator Vince Gilligan declares he'd be interested in returning to The X-Files if his schedule allows.

Since The X-Files left television in 2002, the family tree of the series’ writers has blossomed into a who’s who of television talent. At the very top of that list sits Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan, whose name seems to be only coming up among fans as a dream collaborator on a potential X-Files revival.

Gilligan’s involvement may not be as far fetched as it seems -- and that comes from the man himself.

In a lengthy interview with X-Files fan site The X-Files Lexicon, Gilligan admitted he has a level of interest in the sci-fi series if a revival was made official. 

"I would love to be involved", Gilligan said. "I don’t know with my current schedule, if I necessarily could be involved, but I »

Crossing Lines: Season Three Renewal for TV Series

20 February 2015 6:18 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

As you may recall, NBC aired the first season of Crossing Lines a couple summers ago. It didn't perform well enough in the ratings and the network opted not to pick up the second season. Crossing Lines has been a success in the international market however and Netflix recently started streaming season two for Us audiences.

Deadline now reports that a third season of 12 episodes has been ordered with Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost, Revolution) and Goran Visnjic (ER) joining the cast. They'll join Donald Sutherland as leads, replacing William Fichtner.

The X-Files' Frank Spotnitz is joining the show as an executive producer alongside Tandem's Rola Bauer. Crossing Lines creator and executive producer Ed Bernero departed after Season two to be close to his family in California.

The series shoots in Europe and filming will be getting underway next week in Prague. »

Watch: David Duchovny Says An 'X-Files' Reboot 'Looks Good'

18 February 2015 9:20 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The second that Fox execs admitted that they were looking into the possibility of an "X-Files" reboot, one thing was clear -- one of the first questions David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson would be asked for the next six months, in any interview setting, would be: "What's up with the return of 'The X-Files'?" So today, on "The Talk," David Duchovny was asked what was up with the return of "The X-Files." And he had something resembling an answer!  "It looks good -- it looks very good," Duchovny said, while attempting to talk about the upcoming TV show he actually has shot, NBC's "Aquarius."  But he then specified that "It looks better than it did two weeks ago," an indication that negotiations are definitely in the works and dump trucks of money are finding their way to what we're sure is his lovely home.  Below, watch David Duchovny hint at Mulder's return, »

The Man In The High Castle gets a full season order

18 February 2015 4:27 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Philip K. Dick adaptation, The Man In The High Castle, has been picked up for a full season by Amazon Prime Instant Video...

It was Amazon Original Series' most-watched pilot, and now it's received a full series order. Celebrations are in order for writer Frank Spotnitz and director David Semel's take on Philip K. Dick's The Man In The High Castle.

The alternate history drama, adapted from Dick's 1962 novel, is one of the winners of the online streaming service's popularity contest in which Prime membership gives customers the power to vote as to which shows are greenlit.

Set in an alternative universe in which the Allied Powers lost WWII, The Man In The High Castle has espionage, global conflict and political intrigue in spades. It also has the bonus of Ridley Scott executive producing alongside The X-Files and Hunted writer, Frank Spotnitz.

Gillian Anderson's webchat: 10 things we learned

9 February 2015 7:58 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The star chatted to us about The X Files, returning to Miss Havisham and leaping on top of Paolo Nutini

Hot off the heels of her prequel to A Streetcar Named Desire, Gillian Anderson popped by Guardian HQ to answer your questions. Here’s what we learned:

What animal would I marry? Good question. I might marry a horse, definitely a male horse. Lucky me! He has one sure thing going for him.

What is the largest animal I could kill with my bare hands? Ok, so the only way I can think about this is if it’s a cartoon animal. Let’s say it’s an evil animal with rabies, and I had to kill it to save my life, I might be able to manage... a ferret.

The conversation is in process. And the result ultimately is up to Fox.
