Viacom International Makes Major Middle East Move In Pact With Osn (Exclusive)

17 December 2014 11:37 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Viacom International Media Networks is making a major move into the Middle East by launching three new 24-hour branded channels, two of which, Nickelodeon HD and Nick Jr. in dual language, English and Arabic, on Dubai-based Osn, the region’s leading pay-tv player. Besides prominent linear play, the channels will also get multi platform digital distribution in an area with a particularly high density of digital-savvy consumers.

The Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region is also an area where Viacom has considerable room for growth.

“We have a very broad geographic reach, however in the Mena region and the Middle East in particular we were relatively underrepresented,” said Viacom International Media Networks CEO and President Robert Bakish.

“If you look at the Mena region, with 113 million TV homes and pay-tv penetration at 15 percent, now up from around 5 percent in the year 2000, it’s a very young population; certainly among the youngest in the world, »

'Game of Thrones,' 'Breaking Bad,' 'True Detective' bulk up PGA Awards TV nods

1 December 2014 9:58 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Paired with its documentary feature nominations, the PGA announced this Monday morning which television shows, specials, and digital series that will compete in the 26th Annual Producers Guild Awards. The PGA Awards nominations honor a little bit of everything, including "Breaking Bad," "Cosmos," "Last Week with John Oliver," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and the third season of YouTube’s "Video Game High School." Can’t blame the guild for shallow picks. The PGA Awards major TV category, Outstanding Producer of Episodic Television, went to the award-devouring programs we know and love. "Game of Thrones," "Breaking Bad," "House of Cards," "True Detective," and "Downton Abbey," will all compete for top honors. On the comedy side, the PGA honored the entire spectrum of laughs: The genre-bending "Louie" and "Orange Is the New Black" facing off against sitcom staples "Modern Family" and "The Big Bang Theory," with "Veep" making fun of them all »

Quentin Dupieux’s ‘Réalité’

26 October 2014 11:22 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Réalité

Written and directed by Quentin Dupieux

2014, France

Presented as part of the Temps O’s Fnc program, Réalité is reminiscent of great names of absurd oneiric cinema, the most obvious influence being David Lynch. The movie also alludes to French surrealism in cinema and novels, such as novelists Andre Breton or Boris Vian. Dupieux’s delightful and hilariously neurotic film producer Bob Marshall could have been in a Jacques Tati movie or Boris Vian’s L’écume des jours. The film’s overall absurdist yet calm atmosphere makes it a strong example of the movement.

The image is bright, sunny  and yet has a particular color and ambiance to it that makes the line between reality, dreams, and other parallel realities blur. As they all blend in this same photography and the same music, Philip Glass’s hour long song “Music with Changing Parts”, puts doubt in our minds »

Live, From New York: Sprout’s Morning Show For Kids Wants Celebrities In Mix

20 October 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Some talk shows lure guests with the promise of hyping a new project. Others deliver instant fame.  And then there’s one that hopes to hook visitors with the sounds of an anthropomorphic chicken whose voice is reminiscent of a kazoo.

Chica, that clucking character, has held forth for seven years from the “Sunshine Barn,”  a set placed in converted office space in Comcast Corp.’s Philadelphia headquarters, all part of kiddie-cabler Sprout’s “Sunny Side Up Show.” Now the character and her four handlers have a new roost: a tiny studio on the sixth floor of NBCUniversal’s 30 Rockefeller Plaza complex, not far from the wardrobe racks used by the Roots, the house band for Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show.” Chica and crew will continue to celebrate viewer birthdays and do crafts projects live seven days a week. The new twist? Every once in a while, a celebrity guest or musician will join them. »

HomeTube Picks Out YouTube Videos That Are Good For Kids

8 September 2014 6:36 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Parents who wish to share YouTube with their young children have now been offered a new app that helps accomplish that task. HomeTube, which was recently launched by an Australian developer named Chris Lacy, provides an easy-to-navigate version of YouTube populated by kid-friendly entertainment. At first download, HomeTube stocks itself with videos from well-known children's series like The Wiggles and Dora The Explorer. For a one-time fee of $.99, users can customize the app and add in videos their kids enjoy. This feature is protected by a simple lock that requires users to tap six times before accessing the settings. “I was motivated to write HomeTube after I found myself increasingly frustrated observing my children attempt to interact with and navigate the YouTube mobile apps,” said Lacy on his Google+ page. “I couldn’t shake the feeling there was an opportunity for an interface that was both vastly simpler and allowed »

Recap: 'Doctor Who' - Take a fantastic voyage 'Into The Dalek'

30 August 2014 9:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I love “Doctor Who.” Ever since discovering it in my Netflix queue years ago (Christopher Eccleston is still my Doctor) this silly, sentimental show about a mad man in a box has enthralled me. But I — like many fans — worried that lately the wheels had been coming off. Too many cliches and consequence-free actions and terrible treatment of women. Not to mention an infinite number of reset buttons. But from the looks of tonight’s episode, “Into The Dalek,” it truly feels like writers heard the fans…and they’re beginning to patch up the holes this season. ******************* We begin where we’ve begun before. The Daleks are in pursuit of a spaceship, intent on exterminating all those inside. Flying through an asteroid field, the human pilot desperately tries to keep the ship from crashing while also trying to keep her co-pilot conscious. In the end she fails, and the »

Your Favorite Game Characters Reimagined in Badass Art Series

7 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

That's a face only a mother could love, and if we're being honest, I'm not even sure about that. It's just one of many reimaginings that artist Sylvain Sarrailh has come up with, but at least in this case Bowser got more threatening. In Kirby's case, he went from adorable pink puff ball to Krang's second cousin. Sarrailh also took on characters like Sonic, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Angry Birds, and plenty more, which you can find in his Deviant Art gallery. If you like what you see, make sure to check out his other non-game related work. The Tomb Raider-ish Dora the Explorer is fantastic.

Everything mentioned from 2000 and 2001 in VH1's 'I Love the 2000s'

17 June 2014 8:44 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Before VH1′s I Love the 2000s special began on June 17, I polled my roommates (whom I forced to watch with me) about their favorite pop culture moments from the year 2000. For about three minutes, everyone was stumped—what’s actually from the year 2000, instead of just under the umbrella term “the 2000s”? It turns out that remembering specific years is a lot harder than you think.

That’s why there’s a saving grace to VH1′s nostalgia-bait series, a 10-part anthology spread out over five days this week. It’s hugely entertaining to hear no-name comedians praise specific »

Is ‘Rabbids Invasion’ a TV Show or Game? Why Not Both?

5 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ubisoft’s bug-eyed Rabbids are about to tell TV producers in Hollywood a lot without being able to say much at all.

The animated characters that communicate in gibberish and a lot of shouting are the stars of “Rabbids Invasion,” a series that has broken out as a hit on Nickelodeon over the past year and become Ubisoft Motion Pictures’ first success story since the film and TV arm of the French gamemaker was formed. The show airs in 25 countries.

But as it moves forward with new episodes for a second season, Ubisoft is about to blur the lines of what it takes to make a TV show and game.

In what could prove a clever cost-effective way of ringing more coin out of content for kids programmers, Ubisoft has taken existing episodes of “Rabbids Invasion” and will re-release them with mini games added to the same scenes in November. »
