The supernatural CBS TV series "Charmed", showcased the magic of the 'Charmed Ones' from 1998 to 2006, as the 'Power of Three' survived demons, warlocks, sorcerers and failed romances. Now, with an ongoing comic book series and a "Charmed" TV reboot in development at The CW, just how would 'The Power of Three' fare in the world of 2017 ? :
Would their eccentric behaviour protecting innocents from demonic harm be documented in an errant tweet, or to an 'Instagram' follower ? While their witch side would keep family and friends at bay, could demons start trolling them on 'Facebook' ?
Would 'Phoebe' (Alyssa Milano) get a premonition from a tweet?
Would the 'freezing time' of 'Piper' (Holly Marie Combs) affect a 'Snapchat' video? Could their cell phones pick up signals from the 'Underworld'?

Bad (or possibly good) news, lovers of the classic 1990s feminist fantasy series. NBC’s planned remake of Xena: Warrior Princess is no longer happening, it’s been revealed.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC president Jennifer Salke 100% confirmed that the reboot has been put back on the shelf, although she didn’t rule out more to come from the franchise at some point in the future.
“Nothing is happening on that right now. We looked at some material; we decided at that point that it didn’t warrant the reboot. I’d never say never on that one because it’s such a beloved title, but the current incarnation of it is dead.”

While The Conjuring films may have rejuvenated the box office viability of the paranormal horror genre, a smaller scale movie, called The Sound, comes to the table with something unique: Rose McGowan and Christopher Llloyd teaming up to battle a malevolent spirit.
Video of The Sound Official Trailer
The Sound trailer centres on McGowan’s Kelly Johansen, a passionate skeptic of the paranormal who, armed with an expertise in acoustics, utilises soundwaves as the primary tool of reports that she posts online. However, the debunking activities lead her to a case in an abandoned subway – built on a graveyard – in which a purportedly hoaxed suicide occurred 40 years earlier.
Ironically, the case not only uncovers paranormal proof, but makes Kelly the target of a malevolent spirit, forcing her to see disturbing imagery and memories. »

Erica Messer: ericamesserproductions.com
“Criminal Minds” showrunner Erica Messer isn’t giving up the profiling biz quite yet. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Messer has signed a two-year pod deal with ABC Studios, “Criminal Minds’” producers. The new pact will see Messer “create original dramas for ABC Studios and continue to serve as showrunner for the long-running procedural crime drama via her production banner, Erica Messer Productions.
Messer started the production company with friend and former co-worker Deborah Cincotta and development exec Sullivan Fitzgerald (“State of Affairs”). Cincotta is Erica Messer Productions’ president of development and Fitzgerald serves as development associate.
“Together, their goal is to build a TV company known for its collaborative and empowering relationship with artists,” THR summarizes. “The production company is currently focused on spearheading network projects with both new and veteran writers for the 2018–19 development season.”
Messer has been running “Criminal Minds” for seven years and is the longest-serving writer on the CBS procedural. In 2015 she created the spinoff “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” with Erica Meredith (“Grey’s Anatomy”). The series aired for two seasons and ended earlier this year. “Charmed,” “Alias,” and “The O.C.” are among Messer’s previous credits.
“Criminal Minds” stars Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook made headlines during a recent round of contract negotiations. The actresses, who portray fan favorite characters Penelope and Jennifer, pushed for the same pay as their male co-stars. The duo were successful: In June news broke that they signed new deals, received raises, and now have pay parity with male lead Matthew Gray Gubler.
Season 13 of “Criminal Minds” premieres September 27 on CBS.
