David Tennant, Anna Gunn interview on making 'Gracepoint'

15 September 2014 12:46 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Imagine if a Time Lord and Skyler White teamed to solve a young boy’s murder in a small Northern California town? That’s what it’s like for fans of Doctor Who and Breaking Bad approaching Fox’s Gracepoint, which takes David Tennant and Anna Gunn, beloved for playing for iconic cable TV roles, and puts them into a big broadcast prime-time crime series. For Tennant, the role means embracing the unusual, perhaps unprecedented, step of reprising the same character he played in Broadchuch, the U.K. version of the show (though Fox has added a different ending for Gracepoint). For Gunn, »

Stanley Tucci on new 'Hunger Games' fans and the scale of 'Transformers' action

24 June 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the most immediate pleasures of flying to Hong Kong to cover the release of "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" was sitting down with the always-charming Stanley Tucci to talk about his role as "Excellent character actor screaming at the CGI robots." As I said in my review, these are really weird movies. I am still baffled by John Malkovich in the third film. There's an entire scene in that film where I can't even fully describe what it is he's doing. I went back recently just to look at that moment, and it looks like Malkovich is on Ecstasy and that he's fixated on one of the robots, practically rubbing himself against it. It's bizarre. I'm not sure about the entire role that he played. He has a deeply strange opening scene, and it just seems to get weirder from there, like the entire perverted "Three's Company" bathroom scene. »

Stephen Bochco's ‘Murder in the First’ Could Be TV's First Serialized Crime Procedural

10 June 2014 1:34 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Stephen Bochco knows a lot about how to make a successful cop drama, as proven with hit shows like “Hill Street Blues” and “NYPD Blue.” His latest project, TNT”s “Murder in the First,” which he co-created with Eric Lodal,  is looking to expand the boundaries of the traditional police procedural by having his detectives spend the entire ten-episode season on a single case. Also read: TNT Reveals Summer Slate of 10 Original Series Bochco tried something similar in 1995 with the legal drama “Murder One,” which utilized the same season-long case conceit for its first season.

Review: Steven Bochco goes retro with TNT's 'Murder in the First'

9 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Earlier this spring, the complete run of "Hill Street Blues" was released on DVD, and it was remarkable to see just how well the groundbreaking cop drama held up three decades later. Some elements of it felt dated, but on the whole, you could find common DNA with many of this century's best dramas. That's because for a long stretch in the '80s and '90s, "Hill Street" co-creator Steven Bochco was way out ahead of the curve, experimenting with what was and wasn't possible within the confines of a broadcast network drama, and in the process paving the way for this cable golden age in which we live. "Hill Street" popularized multi-layered, morally complex serialized storytelling in primetime. "NYPD Blue" broke down the barriers between network and cable with its raw language, sexuality and criminal subject matter, and the popularity of Andy Sipowicz (who would've been a villain »

TV Review: ‘Murder in the First’

5 June 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Steven Bochco created “Murder One” nearly 20 years ago, the concept — a series following a single murder trial over an entire season — seemed bold and ahead of its time. Today, TV is teeming with similar fare as TNT introduces “Murder in the First,” which traces a murder investigation over 10 episodes, and has the minor misfortune to follow HBO’s genre-invigorating “True Detective.” Stripped of those contextual concerns, the previewed hours establish the series as crisp and watchable, while perhaps shrewdly shifting and expanding the earlier show’s lens from defense attorneys to the detectives assigned the case.

Shepherded by Bochco and Eric Lodal, with a Thomas Schlamme-directed pilot, “Murder” also has the advantage of feeling quite compatible with TNT’s lineup in general, and the series with which it’s being paired (“Major Crimes”) in particular. Indeed, even if the Turner network’s roster tends to skew toward meat and potatoes, »

Actor best known for playing John Walton Sr in the Us television family drama The Waltons

Ralph Waite, who has died aged 85, worked as a social worker, Presbyterian minister, publicist and book editor before turning to acting and landing the part as patriarch of a struggling American family in the wholesome Us television drama The Waltons (1972-81).

For nine series and more than 200 episodes from 1972 to 1981, as John Walton Sr – "Pa" – he was the quiet tower of strength bringing up a family of seven during the depression and second world war with his wife, Olivia (Michael Learned).

'Murder in the First': Steven Bochco and full-season murder come back to TV

10 January 2014 5:15 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

TNT's next crime drama, "Murder in the First," brings back producer Steven Bochco while moving into brand-new territory with a full-season murder mystery. The cast and producers presented the upcoming show at the 2014 Television Critics Association on Friday (Jan. 10).

"Murder in the First" follows San Francisco homicide detectives Terry English (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) during the investigation of a drug-related murder that somehow connects to a high-powered CEO in Silicon Valley.

Set to air in the summer of 2014, "Murder in the First" will comprise only 10 episodes and will focus on a single crime -- think "The Killing," only with a solution to the crime and less rain. Bochco explained how the shorter season may be essential for making the full-season crime show work. 

"You're really struggling to make every episode in the service to the overall story," he says of his old standard of 20-26 episodes per season. »

TCA: TNT’s ‘Murder In The First’ Better Than ABC’s ‘Murder One’, Says Steven Bochco

10 January 2014 5:06 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

TNT‘s new Steven Bochco drama Murder In The First will follow a single case across an entire season. So too did Bochco’s short-lived mid-1990s drama Murder One for ABC. “When we did Murder One, we were halfway through [the first season of 23 episodes] and I didn’t know how it was going to end, which was a little intense,” Bochco told TV critics today at the TCA Winter Press Tour. He also noted: “And over that many episodes you really struggling to make every hour sustain itself in the service of a single storyline. Twelve episodes seems to me to be an ideal length for this format and it really eliminates the necessity of filler. It also gives us much more time to think about what we’re doing and to craft our scripts…It’s all around a much nicer way to work.” The new drama centers on San Francisco homicide »
