NBC Moving Ahead With Blindspot, Heartbreaker And Chicago Med

2 May 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As broadcast television heads toward upfront week, NBC has announced the addition of three brand new dramas to its slate. Having commissioned 19 pilots, the network already sent Shades Of Blue, Coach and Telenovela straight to series. These projects have now been joined by series commitments for Heartbreaker, Blindspot and Dick Wolf’s Chicago Med.

Chicago Med promises to take audiences into the daily chaos of Chicago’s busiest hospital – focusing on the doctors working within. It fits into Dick Wolf’s successful Chicago franchise, with characters from Chicago P.D and Chicago Fire planned to pass through the sterile hallways of the hospital. Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Laurie Holden, Nick Gehlfuss, and Yaya Dacosta are among the cast of this show that is written by Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt and Derek Haas. The synopsis clearly sounds like a version of ER made to fit with Wolf’s existing shows, »

Walk of Fame Honoree Julianna Margulies Makes ‘Good’

1 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Though she’s one of the biggest stars in the medium thanks to “ER” and “The Good Wife,” Julianna Margulies grew up not allowed to watch TV.

“I came from a very artistic family, and we weren’t allowed to watch TV, so we put on plays all the time and used our imagination to entertain,” Margulies said in a previous interview of growing up the youngest of three daughters in Spring Valley, N.Y. It wasn’t until her freshman year at Sarah Lawrence College that she truly realized her calling as an actor.

Margulies was cast in David Rabe’s “In the Boom Boom Room,” playing a go-go dancer. “I just remember this feeling opening night — I was in my little cage with my boots on and I got this overwhelming sense of belonging somewhere,” recalled Margulies. “It was really overwhelming and it just all fell together after that. »

When is the Right Time to Pull the Plug on a Long-Running Show?

29 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With the broadcast upfronts around the corner, the major networks are tasked with making crucial decisions regarding the fate of series new and old for the 2015-16 season.

Given the massive increase in the volume of primetime television shows, it’s tougher to decide whether to stick with reliable long-running programs or take a gamble on something new that could become a binge-worthy hit. Since viewers have more choices, networks may be less inclined to stick with older shows just for the sake of stability.

“In the platinum age of quality and choice, broadcasters have to be more aggressive about letting go of the past,” said producer and former NBC Entertainment president Warren Littlefield.

But viewers aren’t the only ones distracted by so many options. Actors are demonstrating a new willingness to bow out of successful series. Showrunners, in order to better shape a program’s long-term storytelling arc, »

Nashville Recap: Liver on a Prayer

22 April 2015 9:18 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Nashville‘s Juliette Barnes is never better than when she’s taking off her metaphorical earrings and gearing up for a tussle with a formidable foe. That’s why we should all bow down and kiss the petite pop-star feet of one Ms. Jade St. John.  

Because if the former-almost-Mrs.-Fordham hadn’t come to town with her Jem-and-the-Holograms hair and her improbable cheekbones, we never would have seen Cadence’s hormonally unstable mommy spout off in a tirade containing the phrase “Country Barbie jacket.”

Even though we’re supposed to see the outburst as evidence of Ju’s emotionally frayed new mommyhood, »

Celebrating bad artwork on DVD reissues

17 April 2015 5:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When a DVD gets a reissue, its distributor tends to change the artwork. Er, not always for the better...

Movie studios love having large catalogues of older movies. They guarantee a revenue stream after all, through TV sales, streaming services, and the occasional repackaging of a DVD and/or Blu-ray edition.

But new packaging means new artwork, and a star who was hot when the film first came around may have faded since. Plus, audience trends change. Plus, there's the added bonus of luring people to buy two copies. Marvellous!

Most of the time, artwork updates go without a hitch. But in recent times, particularly with 90s movies we've noticed, some of the updates, er, 'dumb things down' slightly. Most of these exhibits are from the UK, we should note. If we broadened it more than we had into the Us - which we may do in a future piece »

Crush of the week: Gabrielle Union

11 April 2015 5:16 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

‘Union is a classic Cool Girl, the type that appeals to men and women: she’s fun and sporty, and beautiful in that girl-next-door way; she also looks like she means business’

1999 was a magical year for teen movies: it was when 10 Things I Hate About You and She’s All That were released. These two films have one actor in common, Gabrielle Union, and she fills her second-fiddle position with aplomb. Her screen time is limited to serving the arcs of the main players (Julia Stiles, Rachael Leigh Cook), but you still notice her: as Chastity in 10 Things, she asks the great question, “Can you ever just be whelmed?”. She was 26 at the time, playing 17.

Union, now 42, began her showbiz life as a model. This led to small TV roles, then movies, supplemented with appearances in Friends, ER and Ugly Betty. She’s a classic Cool Girl, the type »

Fortitude: Sky Atlantic confirms second series

10 April 2015 1:03 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sky Atlantic and Pivot have ordered a second series of frosty supernatural murder mystery, Fortitude

Good news, Fortitude fans – a second season is on the way. Pivot (a Participant Media company) and Sky Atlantic confirmed the news yesterday, to tie in with the series one finale.

“From the first episode, audiences responded to the incredibly rich world Simon Donald created, where nature and civilization collide with catastrophic results,” said Pivot head honcho Kent Rees.

Fortitude hasn't been shy about offing its stars over the course of the first run, so much so that fans are already scratching their heads at who's left in that amazing cast (which featured, let's remember, Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Sofie Grabol, Richard Dormer and Christopher Eccleston) to return for the second series. Er, our best idea? Make it a prequel. About the mammoth.

Series creator Simon Donald will surely return to writing and executive producer duties, »

7 April 2015 2:09 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Actor Tom Towles has died at the age of 65.

The character actor was a regular in Rob Zombie films and also starred in Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer as a murderous sidekick, among many other movies.

Our buddy Tom Towles has died. He was a nice funny guy. We will miss him. #riptomtowles #halloween2007 #houseof1000corpses #thedevilsrejects

A photo posted by RobZombieofficial (@robzombieofficial) on Apr 5, 2015 at 1:57pm Pdt

Zombie announced Towles's death on Sunday (April 5) on Facebook.

"I just got word that our buddy Tom Towles has died," he wrote. "He was such a great guy and I am so grateful that we got to work together several times. He will be really missed."

Towles starred in the 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead and Zombie's first film House of 1000 Corpses in 2003.

He later teamed up with Zombie in The Devil's Rejects, his version of Halloween and a segment of Grindhouse. »

Tom Towles, Actor in Horror Movies, Dies at 65

6 April 2015 1:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tom Towles, a character actor who appeared in horror movies and had a recurring role on “NYPD Blue,” died April 2 after suffering a stroke. He was 65.

Though he did have a small role in 1975’s “Dog Day Afternoon,” Towles was more associated with the films of Rob Zombie, appearing in “House of 1000 Corpses,” “The Devil’s Rejects,” Zombie’s 2007 reboot of “Halloween” and the fake Zombie-shot trailer for “Werewolf Women of the S.S.” included in the 2007 film “Grindhouse.”

Towles memorably played the repugnant Otis in 1986 indie “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” and the obnoxious Harry Cooper in the 1990 remake of “Night of the Living Dead.”

Zombie remembered Towles on his Instagram page Monday, saying “He was a nice funny guy.”


Non-horror credits include “Mad Dog and Glory” (1993), “The Rock” (1996), “Doctor Dolittle” (1998) and 2006’s “Miami Vice.” His most recent film was 2008 horror comedy “Blood on the Highway.”
