Warner Bros. and producer, Jerry Bruckheimer (best known for CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, and the U.S. version of The Amazing Race), are taking on the DC Entertainment property titled Global Frequency, a comic book series written by Warren Ellis. The high-profile television project which has landed a pilot production commitment at Fox will be written by respected sci-fi writer Rockne S. O’Bannon (Farscape and Defiance creator)

Bruckheimer is joining fellow Wbtv A-list producer Greg Berlanti, who is behind a number of DC-themed projects including Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl as well as the upcoming Riverdale, based on the Archie Comics characters.

Roman Atwood's most popular videos involve stuff like pretend urination, masturbation jokes, and fake arguments with his girlfriend, but the prankster's latest YouTube offering is much more wholesome. Atwood teamed up with consumer electronics retailer TigerDirect for a "positive prank" where he replaces the technology in an orphanage after faking a break-in. The video brings Atwood to the headquarters of Jafco, a Floridian charity that assists abused and neglected children. In the night, Atwood arrives at the Jafco building and makes it seem as if he has broken in. The next morning, he dons his best detective costume, goes to "investigate," spends a few minutes doing his best CSI: Miami impression, and then gives the Jafco employees a nice surprise by showing them that there hasn't been a break-in at all; instead, TigerDirect has replaced all of the company's outdated equipment, providing them with a suite of new computers.

Jon Cryer on “Two and a Half Men” gay marriage controversy: "Hopefully we haven't done something too terrible in taste” "For us it was just a fun, silly idea that some people were taking kind of seriously, so that sort of surprised us,” says Cryer of the plan for Alan to marry Ashton Kutcher’s character. "But at the same time I understand. This is a time when our nation is changing so much. And let's remember, same-sex adoption is still illegal in some states so I can see why people would be nervous about it. And as long as the fight is still being fought they have a right to be sensitive about it.” Plus: Jon Cryer recalls when Charlie Sheen began going crazy on “Men,” Sheen says "I just think it makes sense” for him to return to “Men,” Cryer recalls being labeled “The Show Killer,” and Conchata Ferrell recalls auditioning for Berta. »

For only the second time ever, "CSI" will air less than 22 episodes this season, as CBS has cut the crime drama's episode order.
TVLine reports that the 15th season of the venerable drama will now have only 18 episodes, the fewest since the 17 that aired during the 2007-2008 writers' strike season. But the site says that the decision "was more about inventory than ratings."
CBS already has a backlog of programming waiting to make it to air, including the seventh (and rumored final) season of "The Mentalist," as well as the new Vince Gilligan drama "Battle Creek." Deadline notes that the cut "was part of a flex plan put in place in May, with the network now triggering the option to go down to 18 episodes."
TVLine's report also notes that "CSI"'s move to Sundays at 10 p.m. this season has been a relative success: though overall ratings are down, it's »

HBO isn’t the only big TV outlet taking its TV series straight to the masses.
CBS Corp. is launching its own subscription service for on-demand consumption of its flagship network’s TV programs, as well as older series to which it owns the rights. “CBS All Access” will offer thousands of episodes from many of CBS’ current programs, classic series in its library as well as content from its local-tv stations, for $5.99 a month. With the service, anyone who wants to watch CBS shows will be able to do so whether they subscribe to a programming package from a video distributor or not.
The move represents a continuation of the big bet the company made when it declined to take an operating position in Hulu, the video-streaming site run by Walt Disney, 21st Century Fox and Comcast. At a time when the habit of watching TV programs via digital »

Produced with factory-like precision, “NCIS: New Orleans” seems determined not to give viewers watching lead-in “NCIS” any reason to reach for the remote or clap off the TV. And other than the jazz riffs (which no one will confuse with “Treme”) and Scott Bakula subbing for Mark Harmon (who doubles as an exec producer), audiences probably won’t notice much difference between the two shows. Despite conspicuous creole flavoring, this second spinoff looks likely to pick up pretty seamlessly where the “L.A.” edition left off – with Bakula providing good company, and justice served up faster than street-vendor gumbo.
Of course, the series really started last season, when CBS featured a planted spinoff within the context of “NCIS.” And the prospect of regular crossovers between the two series is made clear right off the bat when Cch Pounder’s medical examiner consults via TV monitor with her counterpart played by David McCallum. »

Metcalfe and Santana walked with their arms around one another as they exited a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf store. Metcalfe kept it casual in a pair of dark gray cargo sweatpants, a plain white t-shirt and matching white sneakers. Santana sported a gray knit top, olive skinny jeans and gold slip on sneakers.
Metcalfe took to Twitter during the outing, writing, “Pitstop for a couple Chai Latte's wit my bae.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston made out in front of their spouses (and all of America). Sofia Vergara was placed on a rotating platform like a piece of Price Is Right merchandise. And CSI: Miami‘s Horatio Caine put on his sunglasses to drop a cheesy bon mot — or, more accurately, that’s what host Seth Meyers did when he channeled David Caruso.
Yes folks, the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards are in the books, and TVLine has your rundown of the 20 Best and Worst Moments (including one choice Maya Angelou callout that actually took place on the red carpet).
What do you suppose Sarah Silverman meant by the bizarre remark in her Emmy acceptance speech Sunday night that we're all made of molecules hurtling through space? Maybe it was an oblique reference to television itself, which is now less a medium than a disembodied signal that we watch at a time and place of our own choosing. On some level, the creators of TV seem to realize that their medium is heading into a future that's even less shackled to the living room screen and the three hours after dinner than ever. And yet, watching last night's 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, one felt a sense of déjà vu, of watching a medium celebrate its ties to its own past. We'd seen many of the honorees picking up trophies before, and maybe we'd even heard the same jokes and patter before.
Seth Meyers could win the Emmy for Best Awards »

Never again, TV Academy. Never again. I don't care if NBC has to do the Emmys in August because of football and if NBC is scared of going head-to-head with a competing award show. Doing the Emmys on Monday is just wrong. But we shall trudge on! Seth Meyers is hosting. Some fantastic TV shows and actors are nominated. Follow along. Comment below. Join the fun. Make the fun. 8:00 p.m. Et. That was some of the worst Red Carpet pre-show I've ever watched between E! and NBC. I never thought I'd miss Ryan Seacrest, but there ya go! 8:00 p.m. Seth Meyers was just outside being interviewed by Billy Bush just two minutes ago. How will he make it inside? How?!?!? 8:00 p.m. A countdown! 20 seconds to go. 8:00 p.m. And now Seth is inside on-stage. How Is That Possible, Billy Bush?!? 8:01 p.m. »

It seems Marvel’s McU-set spy series Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. is looking to embrace the world of the comic books even more. With the introduction of Mockingbird announced earlier in the week, we can now also report that Absorbing Man will make an appearance in the show’s second season premiere.
Absorbing Man, real name Carl Creel, is a super villain who can absorb anything he touches. As ever, the introduction of a new super-powered villain is bound to cause headaches for Coulson and the gang. It makes us wonder, too, if we’ll see Graviton again in this season.
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to Us screens on 23 September. »
Cult movie classic ‘Pretty Poison’ filmmaker Noel Black dead at 77 (photo: Tuesday Weld and Anthony Perkins in ‘Pretty Poison’) Noel Black, best remembered for the 1968 cult movie classic Pretty Poison, died of pneumonia at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital on July 5, 2014. Black (born on June 30, 1937, in Chicago) was 77. Prior to Pretty Poison, Noel Black earned praise for the 18-minute short film Skaterdater (1965), the tale of a boy skateboarder who falls for a girl bike rider. Shot on the beaches of Los Angeles County, the dialogue-less Skaterdater went on to win the Palme d’Or for Best Short Film and tied with Orson Welles’ Falstaff - Chimes at Midnight for the Technical Grand Prize at the 1966 Cannes Film Festival. Besides, Skaterdater received an Academy Award nomination in the Best Short Subject, Live Action category. (The Oscar winner that year was Claude Berri’s Le Poulet.) ‘Pretty Poison’: Fun and games and »
