Amazon and CBS have extended their streaming partnership with a deal that covers three new summer series through 2018, starting with next year’s comedic thriller “BrainDead” from “The Good Wife” creators.
The deal gives Amazon access to the show four days after episodes premiere on CBS. That quick turnaround model was pioneered by CBS three years ago for drama “Under the Dome,” and has been a crucial source of financing for the Eye in expanding its slate of summer scripted series.
Amazon also has rights to CBS’ Halle Berry starrer “Extant,” which just wrapped its second season. But this past summer’s new entry, “Zoo,” went to Netflix for the Svod window. There’s no word yet from CBS on renewals for “Extant” or “Zoo.”
Despite what is said to be a rich pact with Amazon, the summer shows will be made available for streaming on CBS All Access, both »

Synopsis: Teenager Faith (Battrick) makes a deal with a local witch (Walton) in an attempt to save her dying father.
Witches on film is a tough thing to get right, and whilst there are a handful that nail it (read our best movie witches feature), most manage to be mediocre and more than a little lacklustre. Considering that witches have been around for centuries it’s sad that films that feature the ‘monster’ tend to be overly nice and focus way more on the Bewitched / Sabrina the Teenage Witch whimsical fun part of magic, rather than the dark occult origins of the historical records. Cherry Tree attempts to correct this by giving a dark and bloody representation. »

15 years ago today, the Toros stepped out onto the football field and put some serious cheer back into the atmosphere. To steal a phrase from the film: Bring It On's the poo - so take a big whiff.
A Hollywood star from the age of 12 thanks to her breakthrough role in Interview with the Vampire, Dunst's star was burning brightly when she led the Toros as Torrance Shipman. Two years later, she went on to land her biggest role as Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi's three Spider-man films.
In recent years, she's reinvented herself as a critical darling, winning Best Actress at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for Melancholia, »

Paul Feig is Hollywood’s most popular ladies’ man.
That’s not to suggest he’s a lothario or creepy man-on-the-make. It’s just that in his job as a top movie director, he arguably has done more in recent years than anyone else in the business to enable actresses to play the kinds of delicious characters that traditionally had been the domain of their male counterparts. There’s an encouraging shift under way at the box office with such female-driven hits as “Fifty Shades of Grey,” “Cinderella,” “Insurgent” and “Maleficent” burning up the bigscreen. And Feig, who has demonstrated a fondness for funny women, has played a central role part in helping to create and maintain that momentum, with a resume of blockbuster comedies.

After nearly 25 years on television, The Odd Couple star Lindsay Sloane is accustomed to playing the neurotic type. What she’ll never get used to is the guest stints that find her fake-sexing it up with an actor she barely knows, like her time working with Mark Duplass on The League.
“I remember meeting Mark in the makeup trailer,” she tells TVLine. “Cut to three hours later, and I’m in lingerie in bed with him, playing this girl who’s crushing his penis.” Ouch!
