Cannes – Shaping up as one of the big event TV series to come out of Europe as it ramps up ever more ambitious TV fiction, Rola Bauer’s Germany-based Tandem Productions (“Pillars of the Earth”), a Studiocanal company, is said to be developing epic TV drama “Lionshearts: The Crusade,” linking with the BBC and “24’s” Robert Cochran.
Helmer of the 2008’s first “Taken,” which gave Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp its biggest movie franchise ever, France’s Pierre Morel (“Taken”) is believed to have committed to direct the first two episodes.
Producer and co-creator of Fox’s “24,” Cochran is attached to “Lionshearts,” which turns on the most famous crusade of all, the Third Crusade of 1191-92. English-language and almost certainly a big epic BBC primetime series,
“Lionhearts: The Crusade” looks a firm candidate for a U.S. deal of some sorts. As Tandem prexy Bauer pointed out last month, made over the last 15 years, »

Hair-y situation? As seen in the sneak peek of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' "Reunion, Part 2" (set to air Tuesday, April 7, on Bravo), Brandi Glanville dished some harsh criticism about costar Lisa Rinna's signature, short hairstyle. Well, no surprise: The Melrose Place alum has some words of her own to share! The battle began when Rinna, 51, joked that a trashy mom character she once played on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation was modeled after Glanville, 42. To that, the former model bit back, "You've had [...] »

“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” is at the top of the world.
The long-running CBS crime drama broke the Guinness World Record for the largest television drama simulcast of all time, airing in 171 countries on March 4, dubbed “World CSI Day.” The net announced the achievement Tuesday.
The particular episode that broke the world record, titled “Kitty,” originally aired in the States on April 30, 2014, and acted as the planted spinoff for “CSI: Cyber,” which premiered as its own standalone series this month.
The flagship “CSI” series has launched three spinoffs — most recently “Cyber,” in which Oscar winner Patricia Arquette stars, plus “CSI: Miami” and “CSI: NY,” both of which were huge successes but are no longer on the air. “Miami” ran for 10 seasons from 2002 to 2012, and “NY” for nine seasons, ending in 2013.
“World CSI Day” celebrated 15 years of the “CSI” franchise and the U. »

Studiocanal, one of Europe’s largest film-tv production-distribution-sales forces, looks set to be driving more into the U.S. TV production business, following a major strategic realignment, splitting TV production and distribution, whose reverberations will play out over the whole company.
Move roles off Studiocanal’s forceful step-by-step entry into TV production from late 2012 – plus the large demand near worldwide for high-end English-language drama, and the emergence of digital TV platforms as potential new powerful buyers worldwide for top-notch TV fiction.
Studiocanal and German partner Tandem Productions aim “to increase our number of really international TV series productions, including dramas co-produced or co-financed out of the U.S. as Studiocanal extends the number of top-level partners it works with,” Studiocanal chairman-ceo Olivier Courson told Variety.
In one major move, former Shine International sales Svp Katrina Neylon, who has spent most of her career at Twentieth Century Fox Intl. TV and Disney ABC Intl. »

Fox and DC Comics have brought on Lina Esco to star in their Lucifer pilot, just one week after they cast actor Tom Ellis as the title character. Lina Esco is playing Mazikeen, a fierce demon who takes the form of a beautiful young woman. In the comics, Mazikeen serves as Lucifer's best friend, bodyguard and occasional lover. In the pilot, the character will be known as Maze.
The plot follows Lucifer, who, after growing bored of ruling over hell, decides to abandon his post and head to Los Angeles, where he finds amusement in helping the L.A.P.D. punish criminals. The earlier version of the pilot script also had Lucifer coming to L.A., but instead of punishing criminals, he opens a piano bar dubbed Lux. This piano bar aspect of the story has since been abandoned. The character first originated in Neil Gaiman's Sandman comics, »
News: Patricia Arquette Plays Cyber Cop On New CSI
Arquette debuted her cyber-psychologist character last year on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and the response from viewers was enough to garner a new CSI spinoff centered on cyber crime -- a subject that is especially timely following the Sony hack.
"It's not just our phones," Arquette said of cyber safety. "It's the way whole corporations work with emails, our whole banking systems, airplanes have Wi-Fi, cars have Wi-Fi, coffee makers. You're going to pick up some tips [from CSI: Cyber] along the way about how to be a little more careful."
Since being on the show, Moss says he keeps his phone facedown so as not to be captured on camera even when he's not Facetiming.
Going into CBS’s newest offering, “CSI: Cyber,” fans of the franchise will first ask what’s Special Agent Avery Ryan’s angle: Does she have the quirky gravitas of William Peterson’s Gil Grissom from the original “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” or the reserve of Gary Sinise‘s Mac Taylor (forever Lieutenant Dan!) in “CSI: NY” or the sunglasses of David Caruso’s Horatio Caine in “CSI: Miami”? Or does Patricia Arquette, fresh off her Best Supporting Actress Oscar win for Richard Linklater‘s 12-year “Boyhood” filmmaking odyssey, bring to the role her special brand of Patricia Arquette-ness — the quiet, »

To celebrate 15 years of the popular franchise, an episode of CSI will be broadcast simultaneously in 150 countries, introducing us to CSI: Cyber
Are you in the mood for Danson? Today is World CSI Day, celebrating 15 years of meticulous crime scene investigation. To mark this historic occasion, CBS have mobilised broadcasters in 150 countries to screen the same CSI episode at midnight GMT (in the UK, it will be shown on 5Usa; in the Us, it will be streamed online), thereby claiming the Guinness world record for largest ever TV drama simulcast, a title currently held by Doctor Who, whose 50th anniversary episode was beamed to a mere 98 countries in 2013. To get fans pumped up, there’s a World CSI Day preview – although it’s region-restricted, which hardly seems in the spirit of the enterprise.
It may have lost its lustre in recent years, but the world’s favourite forensic procedural is »
