Meme: Ariana Grande Performing At White Party, Tracy Morgan Worries About Alec Baldwin, Channing Tatum Talks “Magic Mike Xxl”

Creationist Cosmos is a short story, Awkward’s new gays to “stir up some sh*t,” TV Land orders a gay Impastor series

Ariana Grande loves her gays, and she’s about to show it by performing at Jeffery Sanker’s White Party in Palm Springs. Not quite in keeping with her Nickelodeon image, but I’m sure she’ll have a blast. I attended a lot of various “color” parties, but never managed either White Party.

For reasons that can only be explained by, well, I don’t know who, the Louisiana House voted overwhelmingly to keep their unenforceable sodomy law on the books, 27-66.

Toss those Easter Eggs in your refrigerator, because Disney has outdone us all.

TV Land has given a pilot order for Impastor, contingent on casting. The story is about a scammer who runs from his debts by hiding out in a small town pretending »

Interview: Brian Henson talks Syfy’s ‘Creature Shop Challenge’

27 March 2014 2:41 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge is the latest SFX show from Syfy, following their successful make-up competition show Face/Off. In anticipation of the series debut we talked to Brian Henson, chairman of the Jim Henson Company and also the head judge on the Syfy series, about the new creature building competition series.

Can you tease a bit of some of the creatures we’re going to see coming up, since we’ve only seen what’s in the first one?

Brian Henson: Well, we keep it a little bit secret because that’s part of the fun so I won’t tell you too much. I will say that creatures in general – there’s a really wide range that you can do depending on if they’re small or they’re large or what kind of technique you’re using. Is it more fabrication or is it more mechanization? »

Brian Henson on His New Reality Show, the ‘Fraggle Rock’ Movie and More

25 March 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On Tuesday night, Syfy premieres “Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge,” a reality series akin to “Project Runway” with 10 designers scrambling to make the next Yoda instead of an overflowing dress. The first episode features a sea animal assignment that ends with a screen test (and tears). The contestants battle over hand-glue and sliced foam for a prize worth $100,000, which includes a job at Henson’s old shop.

The star of the series is Brian Henson, the company chairman, Jim’s oldest son and one of the judges. Brian started his career on the special effects team of 1984′s “Muppets Take Manhattan,” and his credits include 1986′s “Labyrinth,” 1990′s “The Witches” and the first “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” big-screen movie, where he acted as second-unit director. In the ’90s, he directed two chestnut Muppets classics, “The Muppet Christmas Carol” and “Muppet Treasure Island,” before Kermit and his Muppet pals were »

Tuesday TV: A Henson Challenge, Brooklyn Finale, NCIS's Big Easy Spinoff

25 March 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

If you like Syfy's Face Off (as I do), then you're already predisposed to enjoy the channel's new reality competition series Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge (Tuesday, 10/9c), which often feels like a shot-by-shot copy, complete with fetching female host (Farscape's Gigi Edgley), insane time pressures in producing elaborately fanciful Henson-esque creatures, and a three-member judging panel including the likable Brian Henson (Jim's son and chairman of the Henson Company with its fabled Creature Shop). What Creature Shop may lack in originality it makes up for in creative energy, with the contestants further challenged in mentoring sessions by being made to focus on having the full-body costumes be fully functional for the skilled Henson puppeteers within. The climactic "Screen Test" reveals are fun to watch, and the critiques (as in Face Off) are smartly constructive.

TV Review: ‘Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge’

21 March 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The latest Syfy reality entry to tap this particular vein, “Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge” is a run-of-the-mill elimination contest, distinguished almost entirely by the cool creatures the players — none of whom are novices, given the particular nature of the enterprise — get to create as part of their weekly showdowns. Whether that’s enough to merit sitting through yet another makeup/design/effects-oriented playoff likely depends on how many Henson-produced properties beyond the Muppets one can name. At the least, the low-key series seems well timed to piggyback (or if you prefer, frogback) on the release of the latest “Muppets” feature.

Produced by the late Henson’s company and featuring his son Brian Henson among the judges, the eight-episode series features teams of competitors trying to fabricate utile creatures on extremely tight deadlines. Hosted by actress Gigi Edgley (and five points to those who immediately said, “Farscape”), the show »

Farscape TV movie in development

24 February 2014 3:02 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ten years after it last graced the screen with The Peacekeeper Wars, the cult sci-fi series Farscape looks set for a TV movie revival courtesy of director Brian Henson (executive producer of the original show) and screenwriter Justin Monjo (who also happens to be penning an HBO series starring Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage as a dwarf detective). Here's the reported plot for the movie, via Tor.com...

"Set to follow the awesome comics written by our favorite Keith R.A. DeCandido, the film would follow John and Aeryn’s son, D’Argo (or Little D, as we will always refer to him). Because their baby was exhibiting a set of interesting powers that made him a magnet for galactic villains, we find that John and Aeryn hide their son on Earth to grow up. Now the kid is 19 and ready to go into space with his parents."

A Farscape Movie Is in Development

24 February 2014 2:30 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It was recently announced that original Farscape scribe Justin Monjo is writing a screenplay for a spin-off movie. The sci-fi series was created by Rockne S. O'Bannon and produced by Jim Henson Productions and Hallmark Entertainment. It ran from 1999 to 2003. It was supposed to get five seasons, but only ran four. The series ended on a cliffhanger, but co-producer Brian Henson secured the rights to Farscape and developed and directed a three-hour miniseries to wrap up the story that left fans hanging. It was called Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars

Henson is also set to direct the new movie in development. Thanks to Tor, we have a little information on the story:

6 Reasons Farscape Is An Underrated Classic

24 February 2014 11:58 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sci-Fi Channel

A couple days back, the rumor that Space Jam 2 was happening hit the internet, creating massive shockwaves amongst those still blinded by 90′s nostalgia. However, around the same time, another rumor popped up for a slightly more niche audience – Farscape, the Australian Sci-Fi TV series from the Jim Henson company was under consideration for another outing (most likely in TV movie form).

Have you never heard of Farscape? If not, shame on you! Chronicling the story of lost U.S. Astronaut John Crichton, this is a show that was way ahead of its time back in 1999, boldly going into dramatic and storytelling waters that few science fiction shows ever go even today.

Developed by Rockne S. O’Bannon and David Kemper, Farscape ran from 1999 – 2003, at which point it was abruptly cancelled by the Sci-Fi channel (before it was known as “Syfy”) at the end of its fourth season. »

'Farscape' Spin-Off Movie in the Works

24 February 2014 8:20 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Justin Monjo is reportedly working on a screenplay for a Farscape spin-off movie. Based on the Syfy Channel's hit series that ran for 5 seasons, this project is being directed by Jim Henson's son Brian Henson, who co-created the series, and will be produced by Jim Henson Productions.

Justin Monjo was a writer on Farscape, which ran from 1998-2002, followed by a 2004 miniseries that continued the franchise. The movie will pick up where the finale left off, after American astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder) and peacekeeper Aeryn Sun (Claudia Black) got married and had a baby. Now, the 19 year-old teenager is living and hiding on earth, after his parents discovered that he has special powers, making him the target of villainous alien forces that want to destroy him. He must rejoin his parents on their starship and restore peace to the galaxy.

Farscape Spin-Off Film In The Works

24 February 2014 7:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Fans of the 1999 sci-fi series Farscape will be happy to learn that a spin-off film is in the works. It’s to be penned by Australian scribe Justin Monjo who worked on the original show. He’s just worked on the script for a new HBO series that will star Game Of ThronesPeter Dinklage and is produced by Ben Stiller’s RedHour Films.

The spin-off will follow on directly from the series finale that saw lead characters  John Crichton (Ben Browder) and Aeryn Sun (Claudia Black) tie the knot and have a baby. The story will center around their child, who is revealed to have special abilities that cause him to become a target of villainous aliens, damn those villainous aliens!. Because of this, his parents hid him out of harms way on Earth (perhaps not such a wise choice given the current state of things) and at nineteen »

If.com (via io9 ) has learned that "Farscape" executive producer Justin Monjo has been writing a screenplay for a spin-off film of the popular series.

Farscape movie in the works, confirms original series writer

24 February 2014 3:04 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Farscape could return for a new movie, writer Justin Monjo has claimed.

Monjo - who penned 14 episodes of the sci-fi drama - told If.com.au that he is writing a follow-up film.

The Farscape movie would be set several years after 2004 mini-series The Peacekeeper Wars and would follow the 19-year-old son of John Crichton (Ben Browder) and Aeryn Sun (Claudia Black).

Possessing special powers that make him a target for villainous aliens, the film's young lead would rejoin his parents aboard their spaceship after years hiding out on Earth.

Monjo claimed that the spinoff will be shot in Australia and directed by Brian Henson of Jim Henson Productions - exec producer on the original series.

Last year, Farscape co-creator Rockne S O'Bannon insisted that a new movie was "not out of the question".

"We continue to talk about it," O'Bannon confirmed in April. "I would love to go and revisit that world. »

New Farscape TV Movie In The Works?

24 February 2014 2:28 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A couple of intriguing stories involving Sydney-based writer Justin Monjo have just been picked up by the Australian site If. One involves a new HBO series for Peter Dinklage (which we'll get to separately), and the other is potentially exciting news for Farscape fans. Monjo - one of the original Farscape writing team - has revealed he's at work on the screenplay for a new Farscape TV movie, following on several years after finale The Peacekeeper Wars.There are no direct quotes from Monjo in If's piece, but he's paraphrased as saying that the new feature would shoot in Australia (as did the original series, produced by Hallmark for the Nine Network). Here be spoilers. Plot-wise, it would pick up the child of John Crichton and Aeryn Sun, born after a complex pregnancy at the end of the Peacekeeper Wars mini-series. D'Argo Sun-Crichton, as he was named, will be 19 in the new film. »
