To mark the release of Homeland Season 6 on 3rd July, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on DVD.
After thwarting a terrorist attack at Berlin’s Hauptbahnhof Station during the climactic finale of Season Five, Season Six picks up several months later following the recent election of the new President of the United States.
Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes: Romeo + Juliet, My So Called Life, Stardust) is back on American soil, living in Brooklyn, NY, and working at a foundation that provides aid to the Muslim community living in the United States. As her estranged mentor Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin: Chicago Hope, Criminal Minds, Smurfs: The Lost Village) and Dar Adal (F.

“Carter” features O’Connell as a detective on a hit American TV show who is forced to return to his hometown after an embarrassing public meltdown in Hollywood. Once back, Carter taps into his acting experience to become a real-life detective, partnering with long-time friend and no-nonsense veteran of the force, Sam St. Clair (Poitier).
Garry Campbell (“MADtv”) created the series and developed it with writer John Tinker (“Chicago Hope”).

His sons, Nathan and Griff Furst, confirmed the news on their father's Facebook page on Saturday.
"Steve has a long list of earthly accomplishments," the actor's sons wrote. "He was known to the world as an brilliant and prolific actor and filmmaker, but to his family and many dear friends he was also a beloved husband, father and kind friend whose memory will always be a blessing."

This week Neil Calloway looks at the 2011 Wonder Woman pilot…
This week sees the return of Wonder Woman to the big screen, the first time she’s appeared in her own live action project since the Lynda Carter fronted TV show ended in 1979. It wasn’t meant to be that way, though. Like other big name superhero projects, there have been other attempts to get Diana Prince on the screen.
One of those came in 2011, when NBC created a pilot TV show for Wonder Woman that, as happens with these things, was never picked up for a series or screened anywhere. Adrianne Palicki, who had appeared in an unsuccessful Aquaman pilot in 2007 and an episode of Smallville in 2004, but was probably best known for starring as Tyra Collette in the series Friday Night Lights, was cast in the lead role.
Pilots are greenlit, produced and scrapped without a second thought »

Varda’s contributions to cinema and feminism have been »
