TV On Tap: Fox Wants to Cancel “Harry” and David Tennant Returns as “The Escape Artist”

13 June 2014 5:13 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

Restoring our faith in humanity, Fox has cancelled the mean spirited I Want to Marry “Harry” as well as the improv show Riot. The remaining episodes of “Harry” will be made available online, while Fox says it will eventually find a new time slot to air Riot.

The Comeback co-creator Michael Patrick King talked with EW about the cult comedy’s new season. “Valerie does get in the spotlight, which is what she always reached for, but we found a unique way of telling the story about what can happen when you get something you want.”

ABC Family’s new drama Chasing Life has booked Ed Asner and Marion Ross for guest roles, according to The Hollywood Reporter. They’ll play the grandparents of lead character April.

Joe Morton is a part of the cast of the upcoming TNT drama Proof but that doesn’t mean he’ll be gone from Scandal. »

TV on Tap: Grumpy Cat Gets a Lifetime Christmas Movie, “Modern Family” Is the World’s Most-Watched Comedy

12 June 2014 4:39 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

Lifetime has ordered a Christmas movie, Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, according to The Hollywood Reporter. (I figured a grumpy anything‘s worst Christmas would involve being in a Hallmark Channel movie.) The movie will involve a “perpetually overlooked” cat in a pet store and a 12-year-old girl who can communicate with the animal. Casting is underway for the voice of Grumpy Cat.

USA has ordered a second season of Emt comedy Sirens.

Netflix is reviving kids science cartoon The Magic School Bus. The new version will use CGI animation.

In response to the new Magic School Bus show as well as the Reading Rainbow revival, Vulture suggests eight more kids’ shows that deserve a comeback. Those original 3-2-1 Contact episodes are still pretty watchable.

Harry Shum Jr. will be on the judges’ panel of Fake Off, a show where teams are challenged to recreate iconic pop culture moments using dance, »

TNT Considers a “Major Crime” Spin-Off and John Barrowman Wants a New “Arrow” Costume

21 May 2014 4:31 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

For three seasons now, RuPaul’s Drag Race has announced its winner at a reunion special. Does that make it the best reality show with the worst finale? While I preferred the old way of announcing a winner, I don’t miss the “surprise” of seeing someone like Tyra Sanchez take the crown.

TVLine reports that TNT is developing a spin-off series of Major Crimes, one that sounds more like a spin-off of The Closer. The series will focus on Jon Tenney‘s Special Agent Fritz Howard. An episode in the upcoming season will set it up. TVLine says there’s also talk of a spin-off focusing on Malcolm-Jamal Warner‘s character from last season.

During the WGA strike a few years back, one break from reality TV I found was Corner Gas, a charming Canadian sitcom that found a home on Wgn. Now there’s a movie in »

TV on Tap: Farewell “Warehouse 13″, Maya Rudolph’s New Variety Show and Crowning the “Drag Race” Winner

19 May 2014 4:47 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

AMC has ordered three reality series including All-Star Celebrity Bowling, which sounds ridiculous but could be a lot of fun with the right guests (the pilot features Jon Hamm and the cast of Mad Men playing against Chris Hardwick‘s Nerdist pals).

EW reports that Michael Malarkey will be a series regular on The Vampire Diaries next season. I’d be happier if Malakey weren’t so infuriatingly good at being such a hate-inspiring character, but he’s a great addition to the cast.

Oh, Enzo, why can’t you be pretty and bearable? You too, Damon.

Vulture argues that Grey’s Anatomy failed Cristina Yang. Her exit lacked the grandiose symbolism and narrative impact that Grey’s does well. As emotional as Cristina’s exit may have been, it failed to live up to the drama’s standards. What did you think, Grey’s watchers?

TVline talked with Grimm producer David Greenwalt. »

That’s progress of a sort, right?

FilmLook at 25: Company Evolves From Mimics To Maestros

17 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Back in 1989, when videotape was king in TV production and post, filmmaker-engineer Robert A. Faber invented a process called FilmLook — manipulating video to make it appear more like film by mimicking film’s gray scale, contrast, grain and frame rate (24 frames per second instead of video’s 30fps).

“We ran into a lot of opposition,” recalls Faber. “People who were involved in film-shot television thought we were sacrilegious.” But in 1992 the TV Academy recognized FilmLook with a plaque for Achievement in Engineering Development, and the process found a market in TV productions that wanted a cinematic feel.

Today the original FilmLook process is defunct, but the company is changing with the times. “There’s still a perception that the only service we offer is making video look like film, but we’re a full-service post house,” Faber says.

With digital cameras supplanting both film and videotape, Faber sees the 24fps look surviving and thriving. »

Andrew Rannells Discusses His Return to “Girls” and “American Idol” Performances Begin

18 February 2014 4:16 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

In an interview with Vulture, Andrew Rannells says Sunday’s Girls was the first time he worked on a dance number for TV. “It was cut together in such a way that you really didn’t get to see the full scope of what we learned. But I guess that’s television. I’d never done anything like that on television; I’ve done a lot of that on Broadway. But I’d never rehearsed something like that and then, to see how it’s cut, it’s like, Oh, we really didn’t get to see very much of that hard work.”

Meanwhile, do you want to learn that dance for yourself? The choreographer has uploaded an instructional video so you can make it part of your weekend away.

Alex Kingston’s “Arrow” Return and Matt Lucas Has Another “Super Fun Night”

5 February 2014 4:52 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

The CW’s Flash pilot just added two more cast members. Deadline reports that Girlfriends alum Candice Patton will play Iris West, Barry Allen‘s best friend. Additionally, Broadway star Carlos Valdes (Once) has been cast to play an engineering genius named Cisco Ramon. Both names should be familiar to DC comics fans but since Arrow has had a character called “Speedy” and another named Roy Harper who didn’t end up the way we would have expected, don’t nerd out too quickly.

Transgender activist Janet Mock has called out Piers Morgan Live for an interview segment that was edited to focus on the physical aspects of her transition and her relationships, sensationalizing Mock’s story with similarly sensational descriptions for Mock appearing on screen. Is it really that hard for people like Morgan or Katie Couric to do some basic research on the topic they’re about to discuss? »

17 January 2014 3:05 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

A Ewing is coming to Port Charles!

Donna Mills — best known for playing villainess Abby Ewing on Knot’s Landing — is joining the cast of General Hospital. EW has learned that Mills was the only choice to play a new (see: big) character — particularly because the writers are major fans of her old primetime soap.

Sadly, insiders won’t spill details about her character. She is expected to start appearing on the sudser in late February.

The addition of Mills caps off a big year for casting on Gh, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last April. Executive Producer Frank Valentini »
