What, ho? Could that be Tywin Lannister menacing a man in a coma? Why, yes it is, Charles Dance having taken on the role of a sinister doctor in Not Quite Hollywood director Mark Hartley's long awaited remake of Australian cult hit Patrick. The story of a young nurse who becomes the object of obsession for a comatose man with psychokinetic powers, Patrick has been teasing out images for the past while and with the Cannes Marche du Films now upon us, the picture's international sales agents have released the first international trailer for the film. And, oh yes, it looks rather good.Sharni Vinson (You're Next) and Rachel Griffiths (Six Feet Under) also star. Take a look at the trailer below,...

After nine years, 200 episodes, and a pile of Dundies, The Office is airing its series finale tonight. It's an impossible task, really — series finales always come with highly charged expectations. Ross and Rachel better end up together. Vic Mackey better get what's coming to him. And if they don't explain what that damn island is, I'll never love another TV show again as long as I live. To help alleviate some of this pressure, we decided we'd help The Office reach its conclusion by channeling one of the greatest series finales of all time: Six Feet Under. Cue up the Sia, and grab a tissue or two. Here's how everything ends for the beloved (and not-so-beloved) Dunderheads. »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the second announced yesterday. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on Fox.
While "The Following" proved a breakout winner, Fox had few success stories last season. So, it is going a bit more ambitious this year with numerous dramas, comedies and one-off "event series".
Several pilots didn't make the final cut and won't be seen including the family of government-sanctioned assassins drama "Boomerang," the adaptation of Lauren Oliver's book trilogy "Delirium" about a world where love is illegal, the legal interns workplace comedy "To My Assistant," the U.S.S. Lexington-set "The Wild Blue," and "The List" about the hunt for a thief who stole a file containing the secret identities of people in the Witness Security Program,

Fox has one of its better slates coming your way with the new season, especially if you take the midseason shows into account. Some of these shows may not jump out at you now as must-see, but some of them are going to take over, if I’m any judge anyway.
Clear showcase offerings Dads, Almost Human, and Us & Them are guaranteed to take off early. Almost Human has J.J. Abrams recognition to pull people in, though it looks to be a show that could flounder after a few episodes, even if I hope it doesn’t. The other two are going to become hits. Unfortunately, we have to wait until mid-season for the Gavin & Stacey remake.
Rake also looks like a winner, as long as the translation can be made to work as an Americanized product, and the show actually delivers what made the Australian original so brilliant.

On Monday Fox unveiled their primetime slate for the 2013-2014 television season to the national advertising community during its annual Programming Presentation at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. The network announced 5 new comedies, 4 new dramas, a first event series, and an animated comedy from Seth MacFarlane.
Some of today’s most inventive directors working in film have smoothly segued from motion pictures to series TV and their new shows have found a home at Fox. What caught my attention were the sci-fi, fantasy shows bearing the names of Abrams, Shyamalan, Kurtzman and Orci.
Among the network’s lineup is M. Night Shyamalan’s new event series Wayward Pines. Set to premiere in 2014 and based on the best-selling novel, “Pines,” by Blake Crouch, Wayward Pines is an intense, mind-bending thriller in which nothing is what it seems. Also on the Fox schedule is the »

Of course I was excited about these new Fox shows as soon as I learned about their Fringe provenance, but Wait Until You See These Trailers. It’s hard to get a real feel for a show just from the synopsis, but I’m including the new upgraded synopses for each so that you have all the information.
But Oh The Trailers.

Almost Human is a high-tech, high-stakes action drama set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.

The New York Times wrote a great article about the brilliance of Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes. The piece, "Network TV Is Broken. So How Does Shonda Rhimes Keep Making Hits?", starts out with this stellar quote from Rhimes (to the Scandal writing staff), “I love that the gay White House chief of staff is threatening to pretend the first lady is a closeted lesbian, it is so wrong. In the best way.”

Take a look at a complete preview of the shows coming your way, and mark your calendars. It looks good for NBC this year, and while I’m not sure all of these look like winners, I think you’ll find at least a couple that you’re really going to like.
Blacklist – Fall

For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.”
Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: he will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, »

"The Michael J. Fox Show" is helping bring back the family comedy to NBC. The series stars Fox as Mike Henry, a news anchor with Parkinson's, who goes back to work thanks to some pushing from his family, particularly his wife Anne, played by Betsy Brandt.
"I was just excited when I heard he had a show because I love him and I want to watch him," Brandt said of her co-star. "I think he's one of the funniest people on TV ever -- such a gifted actor and also such a great guy. There are not enough good things to say about him."
The actress is going from the dark world of "Breaking Bad" to the comedy world thought up by Fox, "Cougar Town's" Sam Laybourne and "Easy A" veteran Will Gluck, but Brandt said it was an easy transition.

The "Office" alum and longtime "Boston Legal" star returns to the spotlight on the Peacock network and this time, instead of upholding the law (albeit via blackmail, bribery and the like), he's breaking it. In NBC's upcoming series "The Blacklist," Spader stars as Raymond “Red” Reddington, the most wanted man in the world.
Check out Spader and his devilish ways below in NBC's new four-minute trailer for "The Blacklist", as well as two new preview clips, and scroll down for more previews and official descriptions of the new series on NBC's 2013-2014 schedule: the “Ironside" remake starring Blair Underwood, the new Mike O'Malley comedy "Welcome To The Family," Sean Hayes' return to sitcoms with "Sean Saves The World," and, of course, the highly-anticipated "Michael J. Fox Show."

Chicago – When you’re in as much of a ratings struggle as NBC, it makes sense to shake things up and that’s exactly what they’re doing in the Fall with a new show or an old show in a new time every single night of the week. “Chicago Fire,” “Revolution,” “The Biggest Loser,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “Parenthood” are moving. “Community” is being held until a midseason, 13-episode run. No decision yet made on “Celebrity Apprentice” or “Hannibal,” which isn’t that surprising as they are mid-season shows anyway although it shouldn’t give fans of either program confidence as NBC announced a midseason schedule as well and they’re not on it. Anything could still happen with either program however and they could be held as replacements for shows that fail. That may be the best shot for “Hannibal” fans now. The best new show on the »

NBC added one comedy and two more dramas to its 2013-14 roster, all from Sony Pictures TV.
Drama “Blacklist” has major heat. It centers on a white-collar criminal who turns himself in and offers to give up others. “Night Shift” is a medical drama set in a San Antonio hospital.
Here are the descriptions:
Parents Dan Yoder (Mike O’Malley, “Glee,” “My Name Is Earl”) and wife Karina (Mary McCormack, “In Plain Sight,” “The West Wing”) find out on the day their daughter Molly (Ella Rae Peck, (“Deception,” “Gossip Girl”) is graduating from high school with an acceptance to college, »
