John Corbett to Join Parenthood

17 December 2010 10:39 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Seems the role of Sarah Braverman's ex-husband, Seth, is going to be further integrated into the story and is getting a new (and familiar) face to boot!

According Deadline Hollywood, John Corbett will soon be gracing our screen and messing it up with the Braverman family. Seth, a recovering alcoholic and musician will be playing some shows in town, which is how he will get back in touch.

The Thanksgiving episode reminded us of what a big role Seth actually has in the lives of the Bravermans, even though he has not been on screen since the pilot. Sarah's son, Drew had a nice long conversation with his dad after Zeek took the bitter pill and called him to let him know how much Drew needed his father in his life.  Sarah's daughter, Amber, refused to speak to him. Knowing the angst Seth caused this line of the Braverman family, »

SyFy Thinks About Shrinking Three Inches

14 December 2010 | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

While SyFy is still considering how to develop Three Inches, one option the network is looking at is to shorten the series to become a half-hour long drama instead of an hour-long show. In a recent decision by SyFy, Alphas was the superhero-series that came out on top between the two pilots to develop. SyFy’s VP of Original Programming Mark Stern assured all that Three Inches is not being dropped:

“We found ourselves with two pilots that we loved. They were both excellent and tested very well. Ultimately it came down to which pilot would work best as an hour-long franchise.

We loved the cast and the directing, and the writing was fantastic, but it’s very similar to Alphas. Now we have to figure out a way so both shows can live on our air.”

Other options that the network is considering is to change the show’s »

SyFy’s Greenlights Alphas, Still Considering Three Inches

8 December 2010 4:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Superheroes are about to take a on a new perspective. SyFy had its eye on two particular new dramas featuring people with abilities, Alphas and Three Inches, over the last year. The network has greenlit Alphas for eleven episodes in addition to the ninety-minute pilot order and still “continues to be interested in” Three Inches, that also has a ninety-minute pilot order.

After a rough start, Alphas which began as a project named Section 8 with BermanBraun Television in 2007, is expected to begin filming early next year in Toronto with a 2011 summer debut. Mark Stern, VP of Original Programming at Syfy loved a new take on the superhero genre, pointing to the fact that Alphas puts a different spin on “the idea of ordinary people who have one slightly extraordinary feature about them and are singularly not so special but together can do extraordinary things.” Check out the show’s »

'Cougar Town' eyes a 'Big Fat Greek' guest star

5 November 2010 5:32 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Cougar Town" is hoping to lure another well-known actress into its den -- and the show totally has an in to snare her.

Sources confirm to Zap2it that the ABC comedy is hoping to have Nia Vardalos ("My Big Fat Greek Wedding," "I Hate Valentine's Day") on as a guest star. The show's writers have already started spitballing story ideas for her.

Nothing is nailed down yet, but if Vardalos needs any extra convincing, she might get it at home: She's married to "Cougar Town" star Ian Gomez, who plays Andy.

Vardalos' next big-screen role will be in the Tom Hanks-directed "Larry Crowne," which she also co-wrote with Hanks. It's scheduled to open next summer. Her recent TV credits include guest spots on "The Good Guys" and "Drop Dead Diva."

What would you like to see Vardalos play on "Cougar Town"? A work rival of Jules (Courteney Cox), maybe? »

Gore-soaked stills from new Tiffany Shepis horror, ‘The Frankenstein Syndrome’

22 October 2010 5:12 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Dread Central have revealed some rather gory, and rather intriuging new images from The Frankenstein Syndrome (aka The Prometheus Project), the latest movie from one of my favourite scream-queens, Tiffany Shepis. DC also revealed that the film – which is directed by Sean Tretta and stars Shepis, along with Scott Anthony Leet, Louis Mandylor, and Ed Lauter – has been picked up for Us distribution by American World Pictures.

A beautiful young stem-cell researcher, Elizabeth Barnes (Tiffany Shepis; Nightmare Man, the Night of the Demons remake), joins a secret research group attempting to develop a stem-cell-based universal healing serum. Despite opposition from the project leaders Marcus Grone (Louis Mandylor, My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and Dr. Victoria Travelle (Patti Tindall, The Graves), she quickly develops a serum that can bring the dead back to life – but with horrific results. Distraught, Elizabeth tries to leave the project, but the project’s financier (film »

DVD Review: Christmas In The Clouds

19 October 2010 6:13 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Mike Gregory

After watching “Haunting Vallisca,” I approached “‘Christmas in the Clouds with extreme trepidation.  I needn’t have worried; I liked this movie from frame one. “Christmas in the Clouds” is a low-key screwball comedy that is so likable that it’s almost unfair.  The characters are lovable and the whole movie gives off great warmth.  It’s not a laugh-a-minute kind of movie (although there are a good few hearty laughs), but it will leave you with a constant smile on your face. Watching this movie, I was reminded of two movies: “City Island” and “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.”  I was surprised at the former association because I hated it and really liked this one.  Still, there are similarities in the film’s tone.  Why I was reminded of the latter is a little more obvious.  Both of them derive a lot of their humor »

Exclusive Interview: “Lone Star” Creator Kyle Killen

8 October 2010 6:26 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It was extremely disappointing that Fox pulled the plug on Lone Star after just two episodes. The show received critical acclaim and had potential the size of Texas, but unfortunately failed to find an audience and became the first casualty of the fall season. Lone Star creator Kyle Killen was kind enough to answer some questions about the reaction to the bad news, the American Dream, what may have gone wrong and the future of the show.

When/how did you find out about the cancellation? How did you react? How did the cast and crew react?

We were in production on the seventh episode when we were actually told the show was being pulled.  Ironically it was at an extremely remote location that we’d used only once before, on one of our last days shooting the pilot.  So in some ways the show began and ended in the same place, »

Jon Feltheimer discusses global TV biz

6 October 2010 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

More Mipcom coverage

Cannes -- "Every time I think I have this down, something happens." So said Jon Feltheimer during a wide-ranging and mostly upbeat set of remarks about the challenges and opportunities in the global television biz Tuesday in Cannes.

What the co-founder/co-chairman and CEO of Lionsgate most emphasized was that change was pervasive but that the demand for content worldwide has only gotten ever greater. Worldwide daily viewing is now at a record three hours plus; in America it's surpassed five hours a day.

While he did recognize the challenges of more windows, more piracy, more competition, the executive underpinned his speech with a clear call to execs to pioneer deals with new partners -- but at the same time to never get in the way of the creative process.

"The demand is there at record levels. The consumers are there, in record numbers. But what has »

IFC Picks Up James Gunn’s Super Starring Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page – Updated with Press Release

12 September 2010 2:53 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Less than 48 hours after it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, James Gunn’s (Slither) Super has found its distributor.  IFC Films has paid seven figures to secure the U.S. rights to Gunn’s everyman take on the superhero archetype.  While IFC normally pays less for its deals, they apparently faced some stiff competition for the film from potential buyers such as Magnolia.

Super stars Rainn Wilson as an “average guy” who takes on the persona of “The Crimson Bolt” upon learning that his wife is having an affair.  Starring alongside Wilson are Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, and Kevin Bacon.  To learn more about Super, check out Steve’s video blog/review of the film which he recorded shortly after its Toronto premiere.

Last week's box office race came down to the wire with Takers and The Last Exorcism both fighting it out for number one. On Sunday it looked like the Eli Roth produced horror film had come out on top but by Monday morning the hip-hop heist film had won the weekend. Now with three highly anticipated new movies opening this Labor Day weekend, including director Robert Rodriguez's Machete, Going the Distance starring Drew Barrymore, and The American with Oscar winner George Clooney, it was inevitable that we would have a new box office champ.
