A young boy loses his wealthy parents, receives spiritual guidance and martial-arts training in the Far East, then returns home to right various wrongs and restore order in the big city – it’s a familiar superhero origin-story narrative. Very, very few comic-book adaptations would introduce their main character, however, wandering barefoot and disheveled in the streets of midtown Manhattan, Walkman blazing (listening to, of all things, OutKast's "So Fresh, So Clean") with a semi-stoned grin on his face, looking like he just stepped away from a drum circle in a Phish pre-show parking lot. »
It's no accident that writer-producer Craig Wright's latest creation, Own's megachurch drama Greenleaf, centers on religion.

Nearly 15 years later, Wright serves as creator and showrunner on Greenleaf,on which Winfrey serves as both an exec producer and a recurring guest star.

Six Feet Under creator Alan Ball raised a few eyebrows when he finally finished off his award-winning series at HBO and chose author Charlaine Harris' trashy vampire melodrama books to adapt into True Blood, his follow-up series for the network, but now another Six Feet Under producer - David Janollari - has decided to take on a different Harris adaptation, this time for network television.
Midnight, Texas, which is based on Harris' most recent fantasy trilogy, is due to air quite soon. We don't know the exact date yet, as it's slated to be a mid-season show. These shows can often be last-minute replacements for failing or cancelled outings - often referred to as "parasite" shows - but that doesn't always mean they're inferior. »
Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the series finale of “The Vampire Diaries,” which aired on Friday, March 10.
How does it feel to have your series finale fall on the same day as the “Buffy” 20th anniversary?
I didn’t even know that was happening until a few days ago. Somebody asked me about it and I was so surprised. It feels nice and poetic to the show, obviously. My love for the show had a happy influence in the choices made over the years on “Vampire Diaries.” I think Joss Whedon is a genius. And while I’m sorry to steal some of their thunder on their special day, I’m honored to be able to share it.

Most filmmakers must find a way to chop down 800-page novels and still retain some semblance of the original. Others have the opposite problem, fleshing a short story to fill a feature length movie. The classic example is Ernest Hemingway’s The Killers, which is less than three thousand words in length. »

Though we’re probably twenty years into the revolution of TV drama, the generally accepted canon is still a relatively thin one. Most critics would agree on a handful of shows — “The Sopranos,” “The Wire,” “Six Feet Under,” “Breaking Bad,” “Mad Men,” “Deadwood.” Some with longer memories would suggest something like “Homicide: Life On The Streets,” those able to forgive patchy seasons or disappointing conclusions could fly the flag for “Lost,” “The West Wing,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” or “Battlestar Galactica,” and there’s probably a second tier of shows with a small but passionate following, shows like “The Shield” or “Justified.”
It’s hard to say which of the shows currently airing will take their place in the canon once they wrap up.

The Academy Award winner will star alongside Holly Hunter in the untitled 10-episode series.
The series focuses on a contemporary multi-racial family: a philosophy professor, his lawyer wife, their three adopted children from Somalia, Vietnam and Colombia, and their sole biological child. This seemingly perfect, progressive family is in actuality harboring deep rifts. Then, one of the children begins to see things others cannot — is it mental illness, or something else? The series is described as a tragicomic meditation on the complicated forces at work on us all in America today.
Robbins will play the philosophy professor, Greg. He is questioning his life, his purpose, and the world in which he lives — a world in which it seems the bad guys have won — and his strained relationship with his wife Audrey (Hunter) adds to his overall anxiety.
