Looking back at the work of David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf

  • Den of Geek
Feature Louisa Mellor 31 Jan 2014 - 07:00

A look at the pre-Grimm work of co-creators David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf, a screenwriting partnership that’s lasted over thirty years…

A poker table in the late seventies, a bathroom in the mid-noughties… television shows have many birthplaces. Had screenwriters David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf not been introduced at a card game over thirty years ago, and had producer Todd Milliner not taken a 2006 shower in which he pondered what existing stories were in need of a modern update for TV, then Grimm might never have existed.

First, that poker game. Greenwalt and Kouf’s friendship began a couple of years before their first official screenwriting credit on 1982’s horror spoof Wacko, a job for which the pair were paid the princely sum of fifteen thousand dollars…

“We did a lot of fun movies back then”

That’s what Greenwalt told Collider

USA Brings Back Covert Affairs for Another Season

Are you a fan of USA Network’s “Covert Affairs.” If so, then you’re definitely in luck. According to the cable channel, the spy series is coming back for another season. Since the show was pretty popular over the summer, USA recently ordered 16 more episodes. Like I said, it’s certainly good news if you love the series. Piper Perabo stars as CIA agent Annie Walker on the popular drama. Former “Jake 2.0″ star Christopher Gorham plays blind technician Auggie Anderson, a guy who doesn’t hesitate to help the lass with her countless covert adventures. USA Network President Chris McCumber was so excited about the renewal that he said this: No other series on television travels the globe to tell a story like ‘Covert Affairs,’ and we are pleased to bring it back for another season. With its intricate storytelling, diverse characters and authentic locations, the series continues

'Intelligence' preview video: Josh Holloway saves the world with a chip in his head

How do you make a tough-guy secret agent even cooler? In "Intelligence," CBS did it by sticking a special computer chip in Josh Holloway's ("Lost") head and turning him loose on the world.

For those viewers out there who think this is another version of "Chuck" or even "Jake 2.0," that's not exactly the case. "Intelligence" tells the story of the guy who was supposed to get the human-enhancing technology in the government programs underlying those shows. Holloway's character, Gabriel, isn't a geek or a computer nerd -- he's a special forces-trained, heroic type who just has a little extra edge now.

His edge looks pretty cool too. The chip in the character's brain allows access to pretty much everything on the Internet or computers. And that's essentially everything these days. Using that information -- and sometimes even controlling it -- Holloway and his Clockwork team thwart a whole bunch of bad guys.

DVD Review: Covert Affairs – Season Two

Covert Affairs: Season Two

Stars: Piper Perabo, Christopher Gorham, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Peter Gallagher, Kari Matchett, Anne Dudek, Eion Bailey | Created by Chris Ord, Matt Corman

I’m a huge fan of the USA network, their slew of “Summer shows” are always a great mix of action and comedy – be it Psych, Burn Notice, Suits, White Collar or Covert Affairs, there’s always something interesting about the programmes they commission and many make the transition to the UK via one of the many satellite channels available. Dave had a huge hit with Suits, FX score big with Burn Notice and Really (one of the more obscure channels) managed to create a splash with Covert Affairs. After the huge success of season one, spy series Covert Affairs returns on DVD for a second season.

Starring Golden Globe nominee Piper Perabo (Cheaper By The Dozen, Coyote Ugly), my favourite TV actor Christopher Gorham (Ugly Betty,

Covert Affairs Returns November 1st With Wake Up Bomb – Giveaway!

USA's hot property Covert Affairs is returning on November 1st, and I have a very special "Jet Setter Pack" giveaway to celebrate. The series left off in pretty tricky circumstances at the end of the summer, and we kick things of with "Wake Up Bomb," an episode that changes things up a bit for Annie.

As I'm sure you know, Annie's hopes of having a normal life (and speaking to her sister) went out the window when last we saw her, at least for the immediate future, and Annie has to move on to a degree. It's tricky situations all around now, as Annie's latest assignment doesn't seem to go too well.

Make sure you tune in, because not only is this a great episode, but there are interesting things in store right around the corner... including more focus on Auggie.

Warehouse 13 Season Finale Review: Who Died?

  • TVfanatic
Oh my God.

That's what I uttered as the bodies and plot twists kept piling up during “Emily Lake” and "Stand." I’m almost at a loss of where to begin because I’m still trying to process all of it.

I’m really left wondering about Steve and where he lands in all this now that he’s supposedly dead because both Claudia and Artie seem to have some sort of plan to bring him back. I’m just wary of the repercussions and what that means for everyone involved seeing as it’s a very big and game changing thing to do on Warehouse 13, bringing someone back from the beyond.

What are the potential consequences for using an artifact in that manner?

Continuing on with Steve, I knew something terribly wrong was about to happen when Claudia revealed his true allegiances, Placebo’s Running Up That Hill

Silvio Horta Signs Overall Deal With Sony TV

  • Deadline TV
More Latino TV? Q&A With Showrunner Silvio Horta Ugly Betty developer/executive producer Silvio Horta is returning to active TV duty. After fielding interest from several studios, Horta has signed a two-year, seven-figure overall deal with Sony Pictures Television. After Ugly Betty ended its four-season run on ABC in the spring of 2010, "I took big chunk of time off," Horta said. "I wanted to decompress for a while and started working on things of my own, wrote a feature spec." Now he is back just in time for the upcoming development season and is already zeroing in on a couple of projects. One is a show at Fox about three sisters in Miami, the city where Horta was born and raised, with interconnected love lives. Also like Horta, the sisters are Cuban-American. Jennifer Lopez, who has an existing relationship with Fox via American Idol, may come on board as a producer.

Morning Meme: Fox's Fall Schedule, "House" Does It Gets Better, and Is Kermit the Frog a Homophobe?

  • The Backlot
We had already reported it, but now it’s official that Neil Patrick Harris is back to host the Tony Awards.

Lots of action over at Fox. New Girl with Zooey Deschanel is picked up to series, as is Alcatraz from Jj Abrams and Bones spinoff The Finder. They also canceled Human Target, Chicago Code, and Breaking In, which I was enjoying. And now Lie To Me is gone. I haven’t read the sides for the new Fox shows yet, but nothing gay pops out at me.

There’s also unofficial news that NBC has renewed Harry’s Law (which had the transgender storyline this year), canceled Law & Order: La, and picked up Wonder Woman to series.

Meanwhile, odds are running 50/50 on Happy Endings getting another season, which makes me sad.

Lady Gaga will make her new album available early in a Farmville spinoff called GagaVille that you can

'Covert Affairs': Christopher Gorham 'proud' to represent post-Osama bin Laden CIA

Christopher Gorham is especially glad to be playing a CIA operative following the agency's role in eliminating Osama bin Laden.

The actor returns as blind, extremely active special-ops man Auggie Anderson -- who's been instrumental in training rookie agent Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) -- when the USA adventure series "Covert Affairs" begins its second season Tuesday, June 7. As happy as he was about last year's sizable ratings, Gorham believes current world events could add extra fuel to the show's sophomore round.

"The news about Bin Laden gave the country something to be proud of the CIA for again," he tells Zap2it. "Regardless of how you feel about the politics of that agency, and I certainly have some very mixed feelings about those politics, the people who work there are patriots. They really do believe in this country and believe in what they're doing, and are doing it for what

The 'Good' Life

It has been a decade since Matt Czuchry filmed his first substantial role—on "Dawson's Creek's" sudsy summertime spinoff "Young Americans." But that wide-eyed 20-something might have had a hard time recognizing the actor he is today. "Each job really mirrors where you are in your life," Czuchry says. "['Young Americans'] was one of my first jobs after moving to Los Angeles, and it was incredibly exciting because that was the first time I had about five or six episodes in a row. I was doing something that I loved and getting paid for it at a young age." Less than four years after his multiseason arc as wealthy charmer Logan Huntzberger on "Gilmore Girls," the 33-year-old actor has moved on to something decidedly more grown-up: "The Good Wife." As the young, ambitious lawyer Cary Agos—ousted from the law firm Stern, Lockhart & Gardner and playing a pivotal role in the

'Covert Affairs' - 'Communication Breakdown': Blind man's buff

  • Hitfix
A quick review of tonight's "Covert Affairs" coming up just as soon as you rate this blog for enjoyment on a scale of 1 to 8... Christopher Gorham has been very likable on a lot of TV shows I didn't much like ("Popular," "Out of Practice," "Medical Investigation") or that I quickly lost interest in ("Ugly Betty," "Jake 2.0"), so I've been pleased to see him playing a central role on a show I quite enjoy, even on the superficial level "Covert Affairs" is working for me so far. But Gorham's big shirtless spotlight episode didn't do a whole lot for...

Getting to Know Covert Affairs' Christopher Gorham

Auggie Anderson — the girl-crazy CIA agent on USA's new spy-games hit Covert Affairs (Tuesdays, 10/9c, USA)— may be blind, but TV fans sure have gotten an eyeful of the actor who plays him. In the past six years, Christopher Gorham has starred in as many series — some successful, some not so much. He was the titular human computer in Jake 2.0, the black sheep in a family of docs in the short-lived sitcom Out of Practice, a young M.D. in Medical Investigation and the secret killer on Harper's Island. But most famously, he romanced one Betty Suarez ...

Covert Affairs “Communication Breakdown” Review

I’ve long been a Chris Gorham fan, even though I’m not particularly sure why. I mean even back as far as Popular and Odyssey 5, two shows I didn’t actually like, but for some reason liked Chris in (we’re tight like that). I didn’t love Jake 2.0, or Medical Investigation either, and thus the story just keeps getting stranger. I can’t think of another actor that I equally look forward to, who has never been on a show that I particularly enjoyed.

Although, despite critical and ratings difficulties, I did rather enjoy the goofball antics of Harper’s Island. Well, until we found out the real story, and things got downright silly (the pretty obvious secret to the show is that the killer is the only person the show never tried to convince me might be the killer).

At any rate, I’ve always enjoyed his work,

Covert Affairs’ Chris Gorham Q & A

I hope you’re still having fun with Covert Affairs, and I have another Q & A for you. This time, with Chris Gorham who plays Auggie.

I was a bit hesitant about this show after the pilot, largely because I wasn’t sure it was exactly clear which directions it was going to aim in a variety of ways. I’m pretty happy with it so far, and stay tuned, because in the next day or two I will have a preview review of the next episode, which focuses a good deal on Auggie.

Chris talked a lot about his character, past shows, and even Twitter. I hope you enjoy. Afterward, check out the preview for that episode, along with a couple of images.

By the way, very recently heard reports that the show has been renewed.

What can you tell us about Auggie and what it’s like bringing him to life?
