Inside the Troubled Production of Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Get Down,’ Netflix’s Most Expensive Series Yet

26 July 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

An inside joke on the set of Baz Luhrmann’s “The Get Down” proposed an alternate title for the new Netflix series. Because the troubled production had started, stopped, and stalled so many times as scripts were written, tossed, and rewritten, some writers had taken to calling the show “The Shut Down.”

Over the two-and-a-half years since the hip-hop-focused project was set up at Netflix, Luhrmann went through two showrunners, numerous writers, and no small amount of strain with producer Sony Pictures Television. Production of the 12-episode season, the first half of which premieres Aug. 12, went well over the original budget of about $7.5 million per episode and wound up costing at least $120 million overall, with New York state tax incentives factored in, according to sources.

That makes “The Get Down,” Luhrmann’s first TV series, among the most expensive in history. It’s a huge bet even for Netflix, which has disrupted Hollywood with a seemingly limitless »

Comic-Con: ‘Timeless’ stars on the ambitions and the guts of sending a black guy back in time

24 July 2016 10:17 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Timeless is among many time travel shows on air this year, when turn-back-the-clock TV seems to be the hottest new trend. But it’s the only series that’s daring to deal with sending a black character to eras where it was not at all fun to be black. Malcolm Barrett (Better off Ted) plays Rufus, a scientist who can pilot the time machine that goes back to the Hindenburg disaster in the first episode of Timeless, which premieres on NBC this October. Rufus is hesitant to join the small crew tasked with chasing a suspected terrorist back to May 6, 1937. “I am black,” he tells his superior. “There is literally no place in American history that will be awesome for me.” But he goes back anyway. There’s a reason he’s best for the job, a reason still mysterious to viewers upon the end of the pilot episode. And »

But now with additional shootings dominating headlines, including the most recent Baton Rouge police killings, the network and studios Paramount TV and Universal Cable Productions have decided the climate isn’t right this summer for the show.

Walton Goggins Reveals the Acting Advice Bill Murray Gave Him on Jimmy Kimmel Live

30 June 2016 8:27 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Walton Goggins (aka Justified‘s Boyd Crowder—I still miss that show deeply) appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to talk about his new series Vice Principals, which also stars Danny McBride and debuts on HBO next month. The show, unlike Justified and The Shield, the FX dramas that Goggins is best known for, is a comedy, and while filming Vice Principals, Goggins got the opportunity to act opposite a comedy legend: Bill Murray, who has a small role as the principal in the HBO series. Just like most people are when they first meet Bill Murray, Goggins was pretty starstruck. In fact, during his scenes

While there was no talk of reviving The Shield  TV series, starring Michael Chiklis, creator Shawn Ryan says he has a sequel series in mind. A potential followup would likely feature Vic Mackey (Chiklis), wherever he is today.

Reporting from The Shield Writers Reunion at the Atx Television Festival this past weekend, Deadline quotes Ryan as saying, "I have some ideas where Vic Mackey is, but I don’t know where Vic Mackey is until someone puts me in a writers’ room with a group of these people and some people who aren’t here and give us a week to sort it out."

"The Shield" Creator On Revival Plans

12 June 2016 12:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"The Shield" creator and prolific TV producer Shawn Ryan appeared at the Atx Television Festival on Saturday along with several other writers from the acclaimed but long-wrapped cop drama. The group offered a willingness to revisit the show's leading character, Ryan telling the crowd:

"I have some ideas where Vic Mackey is, but I don't know where Vic Mackey is until someone puts me in a writers room with a group of these people and some people that aren't here and give us a week to sort it out.... Usually my first idea, instinct isn't the right one so I have some thoughts. I'd love to hear their thoughts and I'd love someone to pay us to sit in a room."

A "Shield" revival would continue the hot current trend of reviving major network shows for a limited season run - ala Fox's "24". However, those involved have commitments to other projects - Ryan to "Timeless" and Kurt Sutter to the "Sons of Anarchy" spin-off.
