'Roswell' reunites at Atx Television Festival

7 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Earth to Roswell fans: The Atx Television Festival is staging a 15-year anniversary reunion with stars Shiri Appleby, Nick Wechsler, Brendan Fehr, and Roswell creator Jason Katims this June.

The sci-fi show first premiered back in October 1999 on The WB and ran for three seasons (the last on airing on the Upn) before getting canceled due to poor ratings in 2002. The people who did watch the show really watched it, though — fans even sent The WB loads of Tabasco sauce (what the show’s aliens liked to snack on) in an attempt to convince the network to keep the show on during its first season. »

James Van Der Beek on Why He Feels the Need to Apologize to Adrian Grenier...and Justin Timberlake's Mom!

31 March 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Beek is back! James Van Der Beek returns to network television on CBS tonight, with the new series Friends With Better Lives—the show CBS is hoping will be a direct match for fans of How I Met Your Mother (which is bowing out tonight). Fwbl has some funny moments, thanks to a stellar cast including James, Brookyln Decker and Majandra Delfino (Roswell lives!), and a decidedly Friends-ish feel, focusing on a group of friends (some coupled, some not) who, in this case, all think everyone else has it better. James just stopped by E! Online to chat about his new show, and naturally, we had to ask about not only his promising new show, but also the recent headlines he's made revealing that he once »

'Friends With Better Lives': James Van Der Beek and Kevin Connolly, 'Friends' by any other name

31 March 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Right after one group of friends signs off, new friends will be introduced ... by a former writer-producer of "Friends," no less.

Immediately following the series finale of CBS' "How I Met Your Mother" Monday (Mar. 31), the network will debut the sitcom "Friends With Better Lives." The premise of longtime acquaintances in amusing situations -- mainly revolving around their differing relationship levels -- may seem familiar, but it's served up by a fresh ensemble cast merging established TV faces and relative newcomers.

Will (played by "Dawson's Creek" alum James Van Der Beek) is struggling to adjust after his recent divorce; Jules (actress-model Brooklyn Decker) is newly engaged to visibly amorous Lowell (Rick Donald); Kate (Zoe Lister-Jones, "Whitney") is a career-driven serial dater; and the married Bobby (Kevin Connolly, "Entourage") and Andi (Majandra Delfino, "Roswell") observe their friends' allegedly better lives somewhat enviously.

Gratified that sitcom-directing master James Burrows ("The Millers," "Will & Grace") guided the premiere, »

Brooklyn Decker: 'Friends With Better Lives' isn't trying to be another 'How I Met Your Mother'

30 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

If Brooklyn Decker was seeking a model role as an actress, "Friends With Better Lives" has come along at the right time.

The "star" of Sports Illustrated's 2010 swimsuit-issue cover has done the occasional screen role in movies ("Battleship," "Just Go With It") and television ("New Girl," "Royal Pains"), but she commits fully as an ensemble-cast member of the CBS sitcom "Friends With Better Lives," premiering Monday (March 31).

There's little question Decker understands her new character well, since the newly engaged Jules is an ex-model and aspiring actress. "When we were shooting the pilot, it was probably the most nervous I've ever been going into a job," the engagingly friendly performer tells Zap2it. 'I was shaking and sweating, and my teeth were chattering.

"The theater I had done, it was in North Carolina doing 'Winnie the Pooh.' It wasn't anything on such a massive scale as filming a multi-camera »

Jason Dohring on Stepping Back Into The Role of Bad Boy Logan Echolls For The 'Veronica Mars' Movie

4 March 2014 7:47 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jason Dohring hasn't been resting on his laurels since "Veronica Mars" departed The CW's schedule in 2007, but that doesn't mean he wasn't excited about the opportunity to reprise the role of Logan Echolls, Neptune, CA's resident bad boy, when series creator Rob Thomas used the power of Kickstarter to make a "Veronica Mars" movie. Dohring started his TV career in the mid-1990s, making one-off appearances on a wide variety of series, including "Baywatch," "Picket Fences," "Roswell," "The Parkers," and "Jag," but it was "Veronica Mars" which gave him as his first series-regular role. After the show wrapped its three-season run, Dohring jumped right back into work, serving as a cast member in CBS's short-lived vampire drama "Moonlight," pulled a recurring role on The CW's "Ringer," and popped up as a guest star on -- among other series -- "CSI," "Lie to Me," and "Supernatural." All the while, however, rumblings »

Kevin Connolly: 'Entourage' movie is 'a special opportunity'

21 February 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Professionally speaking, Kevin Connolly is occupying two worlds at once.

The former "Entourage" co-star is reprising his Hollywood-agent character Eric "E" Murphy in the now-filming movie sequel to the 2004-11 HBO series. At the same time, he's ramping up for his premiere in the CBS sitcom "Friends With Better Lives" following the series finale of "How I Met Your Mother" Monday, March 31.

"We wrapped 'Friends With Better Lives' in November," Connolly tells Zap2it, "and 'Entourage' just started this week, so I've had the time to separate the two. Then again, it's been 10 years of 'Entourage,' so it's something you can almost do in your sleep at this point -- whereas with 'Friends With Better Lives,' you're still challenged and still learning things about who these characters are."

Connolly says reuniting with "Entourage" cronies Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara, plus »

Review: NBC's watered-down take on 'About A Boy'

20 February 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When Jason Katims was a struggling playwright in New York, or even in his early days apprenticing under Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskowitz on emotionally precise dramas like "My So-Called Life" and "Relativity," I doubt he imagined that one day, he would become the TV business's go-to man for adapting books and movies to television. He developed the WB's "Roswell," based on a popular series of Ya novels about human/alien romance. Though he didn't come on board with "Friday Night Lights" until after the pilot was made, he had to maintain the tone of Peter Berg's adaptation of his own film, »

Starz Gives a Series Order to 'Flesh and Bone,' a Dark Ballet Drama From 'Breaking Bad' Producer Moira Walley-Beckett

Starz just premiered pirate drama "Black Sails," its Leonardo de Vinci-as-action-hero series "Da Vinci's Demons" is returning for a second season in March and it has the 50 Cent-produced nightclub saga "Power" set for later this year.

11 January 2014 9:50 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While writer Ronald D. Moore rose to prominence with the modern day reboot of Battlestar Galactica, he was no stranger to writers’ rooms, having worked previously on series such as Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Roswell. For his next series, however, Moore seems set to go in a different direction, working on bringing the Outlander book series to the small screen. Airing with Starz, the channel known best for the show Spartacus, the show stars Catriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Laura Donnelly, and Tobias Menzies. The first trailer for this series has now been released, and can be seen below.

2 January 2014 5:20 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The high amount of quality programming currently on television has been the source of many discussions over the years. With numerous shows on the air, and several new and returning shows set to premiere over the next few months, the decision of what shows to dedicate one’s time to, particularly in the case of midseason series premieres, can seem a daunting one. To help make the process easier, we here at Sound on Sight have compiled a list of the most promising new shows making their debut in 2014.

****

12. Enlisted (premiering Friday, January 10, 2014 at 9:30 Pm Est on Fox)

One of the more amusing and heartfelt sitcoms in television’s recent history has been Cougar Town. Despite network pressure, the show has managed to become a critical and fan favourite enough to see a second life after it got cancelled, making any new effort from co-creator Kevin Biegel worth keeping an eye on. »
