Along with a potential "Call of Duty" cinematic universe, Activision Blizzard revealed on Friday that the first project in the works at their newly formed Activision Blizzard Studios is a TV series based on the "Skylanders" video game series.
The game series dealt with magic and floating islands and was a pioneer in the toys-to-life category that Disney Infinity and Lego Dimensions have become juggernauts in.
In fact the series is already in production and will feature a voice cast that includes Justin Long as Spyro, Ashley Tisdale as Stealth Elf, Jonathan Banks as Eruptor and Norm Macdonald as Glumshanks.

Written by David A. Goodman | Published by Titan Books
While the J.J. Abrams reboot of Star Trek made changes to the characters of Gene Roddenberry’s classic universe, as fans we know we always have the original show to fall back on. The Autobiography of James T. Kirk by David A. Goodman is the story of The iconic captain, and thankfully goes back to the original roots of the show…
Written in character as James T. Kirk, in the book we are guided through his life looking at why he joined the Federation and what shaped him to become the Captain he was destined to become. Taking us right up until his “death” this is a story fitting of the iconic character.

During BlizzCon, Activision Blizzard has announced that it is getting into the film and TV game, with the newly launched Activision Blizzard Studios developing a Call of Duty movie for release in 2017, as well as a Skylanders animated series, Skylanders Academy, which will launch next year.
“Activision Blizzard Studios has the unique advantage of starting with a library of world-class intellectual property that includes some of the largest franchises which have not yet been developed in film and television,” states Nick van Dyk, co-president of the studio. “Our library spans more than 30 years of global entertainment culture.”
“The Call of Duty IP is much greater than the core IP of Marvel,” van Dyk says. “Our players spent 14 billion hours last year of playing and viewing our content. To put that in perspective, that’s more time spent watching every movie released last year in every movie theater in the world. »

· Idris Elba (Netflix’s “Beasts of No Nation,” BBC’s “Luther”) provides the voice of Chief Bogo, head of the Zootropolis Police Department. A tough cape buffalo with 2,000 lbs of attitude, Bogo is reluctant to add Judy Hopps, Zootropolis’ first bunny cop, to his squad of hardened rhinos, elephants and hippos.
· J.K. Simmons (“Juno,” Oscar® winner for “Whiplash”) lends his voice to Mayor Leodore Lionheart, the noble leader of Zootropolis, who coined the city’s mantra that Judy Hopps lives by: “In Zootropolis, anyone can be anything.”

Elba will play the head of the Zootropolis Police Department Chief Bogo, Simmons will be the "noble leader" Mayor Leodore Lionheart, Slate takes on the role of "sweet sheep" Assistant Mayor Bellwether, and Tudyk is a small-time weasel crook called Duke Weaselton.
The X Factor isn't only about the wide-eyed hopefuls with ambition/potential/comedy value. Ready to cheerily steal their thunder are a revolving door of well-established musical guests who give a special performance during the live shows.
Only the best of the best are ever offered this prime opp, though, so after more deliberation than Cheryl picking who to save (including a cry of "ah cannae choose between 'em!"), we present the seven who most definitely made the cut.
1. Rihanna – Diamonds
Ri-Ri's such a regular fixture she almost has her own fridge shelf at the X Factor Wembley studios. Her performances are generally quite strange – involving everything from hanging out on hairdryers to surreal food fights – but we were totally transfixed when she premiered 'Diamonds'. The voice! The rain! The high drama! We need a sit-down after that.
2. Bruno Mars – Locked Out Of Heaven

Season twenty-six saw The Simpsons break new ground by crossing over with two other big animated sitcoms: Family Guy, once seen as an heir to The Simpsons throne, and Futurama, created, as was The Simpsons, by cartoonist Matt Groening.
Crossovers on The Simpsons generally come few and far between: the show, while openly lampooning popular culture on an almost weekly basis, and featuring guest star after guest star (often in cameo appearances playing themselves), generally sticks to its own little world. Rarely have other animated icons – or characters from other shows in general – appeared on the series, which is what makes two in one season, and full blown episodes as opposed to just minor cameos , so special.
Of course, those weren’t the first times characters from other series have made appearances, or even the best of the crossovers the show has had. And with that in mind, lets »

Grr, argh. Sit, Ubu, sit. I made this! What’s the story behind the production company tags added onto our favourite TV shows?
Closing logos have evolved into a TV production company’s tiny stamp of individuality. They’re a single snippet of screen time not at the mercy of network notes, audience feedback or sponsorship concerns.
A closing tag doesn’t need to sell a show, tell a story, or lasso an audience back for the next episode. It’s simply a signature, a few seconds entirely belonging to the creatives, to do with what they will.
As such, closing logos are as self-indulgent or esoteric as the production company wills them. They’re perhaps the only place in television production where in-jokes, family photos, personal homages (or extended rants in the case of one comedy producer) and kid-drawn scribbles usually found taped to the fridge door are entirely welcome. »
Following its unveiling at the San Diego Comic-Con where William Shatner read excerpts from the book, Titan has announced that Family Guy and Futurama writer David Goodman’s The Autobiography of James T. Kirk is set for release this September.
Chronicling the greatest Starfleet captain’s life (2233–2393) in his own words, from his youth spent on Tarsus IV, his time in the Starfleet Academy, through to his meteoric rise through the ranks of Starfleet, and his illustrious career at the helm of the Enterprise, This in-‐world memoir uncovers Captain Kirk in a way Star Trek Tm fans have never seen before…
With excerpts taken from his personal correspondence and captain’s logs, alongside a unique colour illustrations insert of the captain with his many memorable colleagues and friends, The Autobiography of James T. Kirk is a captivating piece of Star Trek history.

With the word Boss inscribed across his chest (the Hugo half being hidden by his suit jacket), William Shatner lived up to that title—as well as the rank of Captain—as he read excerpts from the upcoming book, The Autobiography of James T. Kirk, which will be hitting shelves on Sept. 8, the anniversary of Star Trek’s premiere. Shatner got huge laughs reading, and especially riffing off, the material. He also spoke with the book’s author, David A. Goodman, a writer on Family Guy, Star Trek: Enterprise, and Futurama, for which he penned the Trek homage, “Where No Fan Has Gone Before.” Learn how Shatner coined several new sexual euphemisms and much more below.

The aliens have landed.
Comedy Central has ordered the animated series “Jeff and Some Aliens.”
The series follows average guy Jeff and his three alien “roommates” who were sent to study him to determine if humankind should be destroyed. This includes forcing Jeff to participate in grueling intergalatic decathalons and perform Azurian honor killings to restore interstellar balance.
“Jeff and Some Aliens” is exec produced and created by Sean Donnelly and Alessandro Minoli and exec produced by ShadowMachine’s Corey Campodonico and Alex Bulkley. The show is based on sketches that appeared on Comedy Central’s satirical animated shorts series “TripTank.”

Over the past few years, many iconic TV comedies have come to an end, leaving fans desperately searching for something new to fill the void. Original greats like 30 Rock, The Office, Parks and Recreation, How I Met Your Mother and Futurama all went off the air within a few years of each other, while so many new sitcoms struggled to live up to that high standard as replacements, many cancelled before we even got to know them at all.
Let’s face it, Selfie and Animal Practice aren’t about to become your new addiction. Nobody is going to remember S*it My Dad Says with William Shatner as anything more than a complete and utter waste of time. And how Melissa and Joey managed to make over 100 episodes before viewers were put out of their misery, we’ll never know.
