Gotham, Ep. 1.01, “Pilot” gives Gordon the spotlight

7 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gotham Season 1, Episode 1 ‘Pilot’

Written by Bruno Heller

Directed by Danny Cannon

Airs Mondays at 8pm Et on Fox

Batman is one of the most iconic comic book superheroes of all time and has been amongst the pop culture zeitgeist for, at most, three quarters of a century, being adapted into all kinds of media, from novels to video games and of course, to film and television. Strangely enough, as popular as the hero has been throughout the decades, the character has had very little time on the live action small screen. Even now, in this newest retelling of his origin story, Batman himself is not expected to make a full costumed appearance. Instead we are introduced to all the tangential characters that surround the Batman mythology and formulate Batman’s allies and foes.

There is a fine line to walk when adapting a comic book character for live action television or film. »

CBS Commits To A "Supergirl" Series

19 September 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

CBS has given a series commitment to a "Supergirl" TV show just weeks after "Arrow" producer Greg Berlanti revealed he's developing such a project.

The Live Feed reports that Berlanti and Ali Adler began pitching the show to several networks on Wednesday and the deal was closed last night.

The new series will deal with the most popular incarnation of the character, Superman's cousin Kara Zor-El. The series will focus on her as a 24-year-old woman who, having previously hidden her powers, decides to embrace her abilities.

Laura Vandervoort previously played Supergirl in numerous episodes of The CW's "Smallville," while Helen Slater played the character on the big screen in the early 1980s.

Berlanti and Adler are writing the pilot script and will executive produce alongside Sara Schechter. »

Supergirl TV Series Lands at CBS

19 September 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

That Supergirl TV series we've been hearing about that is being developed by Arrow's Greg Berlanti has landed at CBS. According to Deadline, the deal closed last night, which is only one day after the project was taken out to the broadcast networks. They must have put together an impressive package, but Supergirl really does have the makings of a successful show if done right.

The series will center on Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, "who was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she has been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be."

The character was previously played by Laura Vandervoort on The CW's Superman origin series Smallville. I'm happy to see that the new DC Comics series is moving forward, »

Why Martial Arts Might Be the Next Big TV Trend

17 September 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Forget kryptonite. The real killer for the superhero TV genre might be oversaturation.

Geoff Johns, Cco of DC Entertainment, is aware of this risk and is battling it through a diversification plan. This fall, the Warner Bros.-backed company will have four shows on three networks. It also has a fifth, the quirky, femme-skewing “iZombie,” in the warmer for the midseason on the CW.

“We’re creating this DC Universe world and introducing these DC heroes that we haven’t even gotten to talk about yet,” Johns says. “If you look at the shows we’re developing this season with Warner Brothers and all the networks, you can see they are all very different… Diversity in the properties and the tones and the shows is really important because there’s a huge audience out there and we want to have stuff for everybody. That goes from film to comics to games to TV shows. »

Meet the Comicbook Heroes Battling for Control of Fall TV

17 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Every summer tells the same story: superheroes reign supreme at the global box office, with studios churning out sequel after reboot after prequel to capitalize on pop culture’s hottest trend. This year’s undisputed champion is Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which has raked in over $300 million domestically to date.

But while Marvel continues to dominate the big screen, rival publisher DC Comics is poised for a small screen coup. This fall, DC and Warner Bros. Television have three hotly anticipated comicbook properties slated to hit the air: the CW’s “Arrow” spinoff “The Flash”; NBC’s darker “Constantine” and Fox’s Batman prequel series “Gotham,” with CW procedural “iZombie” on deck for midseason. Looking ahead to next season, TNT is also nearing a pilot production order for “Titans,” a one-hour drama that will focus on DC’s younger heroes, while Fox just gave a put pilot production »

15 September 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

New Girl will be hitting the reset button on its fourth season, bringing the show back to basics without the messiness of Nick and Jess’ relationship bogging down the Fox comedy.

Instead, all six of the show’s main characters are now single, providing a new wealth of comedy as they attempt to get back out there with various incoming guest-stars. “If you’re an actor and you want to have sex with one of the New Girl cast members, call Liz Meriwether to figure it out,” the show’s creator jokes of the new season.

Mindy Newell: I Owe It All To Television

15 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

“When television is good, nothing – not the theater, not the magazines or newspapers – nothing is better. But when television is bad, nothing is worse. I invite each of you to sit down in front of your own television set when your station goes on the air and stay there, for a day, without a book, without a magazine, without a newspaper, without a profit and loss sheet or a rating book to distract you. Keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that what you will observe is a vast wasteland. You will see a procession of game shows, formula comedies about totally unbelievable families, blood and thunder, mayhem, violence, sadism, murder, western bad men, western good men, private eyes, gangsters, more violence, and cartoons. And endlessly commercials – many screaming, cajoling, and offending. And most of all, boredom. True, you’ll see »

DC’s Supergirl Series May Show Up On The CW After All

9 September 2014 8:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last week we heard that Warner Brothers was developing a Supergirl TV series from The Flash producer Greg Berlanti, his frequent collaborator Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and DC chief creative officer Geoff Johns. At the time it was reported that the series was still in early development and would soon be pitched around to various studios. We also heard that it would not air on The CW, the network that houses both The Flash and Arrow. Now that doesn’t seem to be so finite.

Berlanti himself spoke with Cbr during PaleyFest 2014 and confirmed that he and Adler are working on the series. Unfortunately, he didn’t offer very many details about the direction of the series, noting instead that it was still in the early development stages:

“We’re just starting to work on it. We haven’t gone to the networks yet, so… I’ll be happy, »

'Arrow' Producer Confirms 'Supergirl' TV Show Is Moving Forward

9 September 2014 2:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following two separate reports that surfaced last week, Arrow and The Flash producer Greg Berlanti confirmed at Paleyfest 2014 that he is working on a Supergirl TV series. Here's what the writer-producer had to say, revealing the project doesn't have a network home at this time.

"We're just starting to work on it. We haven't gone to the networks yet, so. I'll be happy, very excited to talk about it once we know where its home will be and that kind of stuff, but not at this moment."

While there was a rumor that The CW had passed on the show, it's clear that Greg Berlanti hasn't even started shopping the project around yet, meaning it still could land at The CW. Laura Vandervoort played Kara Zor-El, a.k.a. Supergirl, on The CW's Smallville in a two-episode arc.

It's possible that Supergirl could first appear on either Arrow or The Flash, »

New Supergirl TV series details

4 September 2014 11:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday news broke that a Supergirl TV series was in development, from DC Comics writer Michael Green. Green worked on the Supergirl New 52 relaunch and has worked on shows like Smallville and Gotham, so his involvement certainly made sense. However, new reports have since surfaced from several of the trades, debunking Green’s involvement and providing a few updates.

According to Deadline, Green is not involved in the series at all. Instead, they’re reporting that The Flash producer Greg Berlanti has teamed with frequent collaborator Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and DC Comics chief creative officer Geoff Johns.

The series is being pitched to networks now, and will not be airing on the CW. The network may house Arrow and The Flash, and was the first company approached for the series, but they apparently passed. That means that despite fan desire to see Laura Vandervoort reprise the role from her Smallville days, »

Supergirl TV Series Won’t Be On The CW

4 September 2014 8:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yesterday, we heard a rumor that DC Comics writer and Gotham producer Michael Green was pitching a Supergirl TV series. I was admittedly a bit skeptical about the report, but today several of the trades announced the news themselves and offered several pieces of key information.

First and foremost, Deadline reports that Michael Green will not be involved in the series. Instead, The Flash producer Greg Berlanti has teamed with No Ordinary Family‘s Ali Adler for “a new interpretation of the Supergirl character and her story.” Adler will pen the script, while DC Comics chief creative officer Geoff Johns is expected to have some part in its development as well.

Despite Berlanti’s involvement, Supergirl isn’t likely to join Arrow and The Flash on the CW. According to E! Online, the CW was the first network pitched for the series, but they apparently turned Berlanti and Adler down. »
