Nowadays, anything and everything can be bought and binged. However, there was a time when not all TV shows were so readily available to be watched at your leisure. Even with the advent of DVD as a media format, it took some time for TV shows on DVD to gain traction. Because of that, there […]

‘Leftovers’ EPs Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta on Solving Mysteries in Final Season

13 April 2017 5:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As the third and final season of “The Leftovers” opens, it’s three years after Miracle, Texas was overrun by the Guilty Remnant, and Kevin Garvey (Theroux) has returned to his role as chief of police. Although he seems to have moved past the incredible events surrounding his “resurrection,” the seventh anniversary of the Sudden Departure is two weeks away — and many believe another apocalyptic event may come with it, including some of the series’ core characters. Eventually, their search for answers will take them to Australia, but the reasons why — well, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Co-creators and executive producers Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta promise that it’s the journey, not the answers, that matter most. In other words, they still “let the mystery be.”

What were the biggest challenges to crafting the endgame of the show?

Toronto: The Cinematic City

13 April 2017 5:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The most populous city in Canada has appeared on-screen in many different ways over the years.Enemy (2013)

There are many ways in which cities are portrayed in cinema. Sometimes cities are anonymous and nameless, and sometimes cities become characters in the films they are portrayed in. Cities can be merely incidental settings, or the specific locations within a city can be incredibly important both narratively and visually. The people within a city tend to represent the place itself: how they act, how they dress, where they work, how they speak, and what they eat. All of these things can be related to the place they live. Cities are home to an infinite multitude of experiences — people from different places, with different families, different wants and desires and identities.

There are cities that are frequently remembered as being iconic within the world of cinema. Paris, Rome, New York, Venice, Chicago, and London have all received loving portraits in »

Exclusive Interview with Follow the Money writer Jeppe Gjervig Gram

Paul Risker chats with Follow the Money writer Jeppe Gjervig Gram

“Back when we did Borgen everyone told us that it would not be possible to take boring Danish coalition politics and make it into a drama – it couldn’t be done” remembers series writer Jeppe Gjervig Gram. From the drama of Danish politics that was lauded by critics and audiences alike, Gram went onto the new challenge of corporate crime drama Follow the Money. Yet the creator and writer of Nordic Noir’s only white collar crime drama series acknowledges the importance of Borgen, that instilled in him a confidence by achieving that which was said to be impossible. “Somehow we managed to and inspired by that experience I felt that we could do it with finance as well.”

The second season continues shortly after the events of the first. While Gram transposes the setting of the major company »

‘American Crime’ Season 3: Watch John Ridley, Lili Taylor, & Timothy Hutton on the Show’s ‘Emotional Authenticity’ (Exclusive)

31 March 2017 9:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

One of the greatest things about peak television is that heavy-hitting actors like Lili Taylor (“Six feet Under”), Timothy Hutton (“Kinsey”) of “American Crime” are getting a platform to tell raw and authentic stories on primetime. That “American Crime,” the anthology series from “12 Years A Slave” screenwriter John Ridley, can build its drama around racial injustice and abuse of power on network television is another testament to what peak TV has done to embolden broadcasters.

Deadwood's David Milch Sought To Revive The Corpse of HBO's True Detective

27 March 2017 5:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Finding, building, and sustaining a successful television franchise in today's overcrowded media marketplace is an immense challenge for any network. You might argue that the process is more magic than science. However, over the last several decades HBO has proven itself the industry's bellweather, regularly churning out evergreen properties, such as Game of Thrones, Westworld, Boardwalk Empire, Six Feet Under, The Wire, and The Sopranos. 

The key to HBO's repeated successes, according to many of their acting and creative alums, has been a long-standing spirit of auteurism; an esoteric process whereby execs hand over the creative reigns to new and established voices, and then stand back (with fingers crossed and talismans clutched). 

Case in point, in 2014 the television landscape was struck by a bolt of lightning; out of nowhere an aspiring screenwriter and college professor, Nic Pizzolatto, burst onto the scene with HBO's True Detective anthology series. The first season of True Detective, »

‘Romans in L.A.,’ ‘Dead Meet,’ ‘Alert’ at Series Mania’s Co-Production Forum

27 March 2017 1:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Shine Endemol Italy’s “Romans in L.A.,” the “Six Feet Under”-ish “Dead Meet” and whistleblower-themed “Alert” are among 16 TV dramas to be unveiled at pitching sessions at mid-April’s Series Mania’s Co-Production Forum, the Paris-based festival’s centerpiece industry event.

The three projects were chosen out of 312 submissions from throughout Europe. That’s an increase of about 100 entries from last year, an indication of the building reputation of Series Mania and the priority now placed on international co-production by top European TV producers as they seek to offset risk and tap into pan-continental distribution.

The C0-production Forum will for the first time offer a cash grant of €50,000 ($54,000) to a best-project winner and be expanded from three to four days, running April 18-21.

The number of attendees has also risen. More than 500 international TV series executives are expected to be on hand, said Laurence Herszberg, general director »

Revisiting Wolf: a werewolf movie with a secret identity

23 March 2017 1:42 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Guy Buckland Apr 12, 2017

We took at look back at 1994's Wolf starring Jack Nicholson and Michelle Pfeiffer, and found it to be a highly entertaining watch...

The animal is out. Nicholson. Pfeiffer. Wolf.

Frankly, that sparse poster copy would have been enough to tempt most punters into the cinema in 1994, but a werewolf movie starring a man who already appeared to be mid-transformation in real life would have been a deal-sealer for many a horror aficionado. Which is perhaps why, when appraising Smiling Jack’s extensive filmography, Wolf is often drudged up from the file marked ‘oh yeah, I forgot about that one’.

Because Wolf is many things; but it ain’t a horror film.

Midnight, Texas Trailer: More Romance, More Mystery

20 March 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The new trailer for Midnight, Texas is a little more focused, and a little less revelaing.

It leaves a little bit more to the imagination.

After all, you want a reason to watch, right?

The town of Midnight sits on a veil between the living and hell.

This supernatural thriller takes a journey into a remote Texas town called Midnight where nothing is what it seems.

Where being normal is strange and only outsiders fit in, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different -- a perfect place for anyone looking to hide from the outside world.

Midnight, Texas stars François Arnaud (“The Borgias”) as Manfred, a charming, powerful psychic who can communicate with spirits and finds safety in Midnight surrounding himself with both human and supernatural allies.

Midnight is also home to:

'Iron Fist': How Marvel's New Show Reinvents a 1970's Kung-Fu Superhero

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. »

'Greenleaf' Creator Craig Wright: How I Made It in Hollywood

Before his days writing for Six Feet Under, Lost and Tyrant, among others, Wright was working as an associate minister when he got a call from two agents asking him to come to Hollywood. 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.

Ahead of Greenleaf's season-two premiere March 15, Wright spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about his path to success.

New fantasy series Midnight, Texas due to land soon

14 March 2017 4:47 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Mar 14, 2017

Based on the most recent trilogy from the author behind True Blood, new series Midnight, Texas looks like something to get excited about.

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. »

‘Vampire Diaries’ Series Finale: Creator Julie Plec on Nina Dobrev’s Return, Possibly Expanding the Universe

10 March 2017 7:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the series finale of “The Vampire Diaries,” which aired on Friday, March 10.

Executive producer Julie Plec promised an “emotional experience” in “The Vampire Diaries” series finale, and that’s exactly what we got. Here, “The Vampire Diaries” co-creator breaks down the finale.

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.
