Bryan Cranston Will Go All The Way For HBO

17 July 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems like an age since we said an emotional farewell to Walter White – the iconic Breaking Bad character that brought Bryan Cranston millions of new fans worldwide. But, despite many opportunities in film having presented themselves – including Argo and Godzilla – along with a Tony-award winning turn on the Broadway stage, it seems the actor has not abandoned the small screen entirely. HBO has acquired the rights to develop the play All The Way for television, and Bryan Cranston is firmly on board.

The role in the play that brought Cranston his Tony award is that of Us President Lyndon B Johnson, and the story centres on his initial, eventful year in office. In the wake of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the plot encompasses the escalation of the Vietnam War, the launch of the Civil Rights Bill, and the election that brought him Johnson his first full term as President. »

Bryan Cranston's Lbj Goes All The Way

16 July 2014 11:58 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Everything Bryan Cranston touches is turning to awards at the moment, not least his theatrical interpretation of Us President Lyndon B. Johnson in All The Way. That stage play, freshly garlanded in Tonys and other such trinkets, has just been picked up by HBO Films and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television.A Broadway debut for Cranston, the play charts the troubled first year of the Johnson administration. There’s the aftermath of the Kennedy assassination, the small matter of Vietnam rumbling on ever more loudly, and the quest to pass a ground-breaking civil rights bill. Oh, and the small matter of an election to win.Plenty, in other words, for the actor to get his teeth into in a TV movie that will be dramatised by original playwright Robert Schenkkan, a writer who clearly has a feel for the corridors of power and Cold War Us foreign policy.

10 Most Expensive TV Shows Of All Time

8 July 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

Hollywood adheres strictly to that old adage “you have to spend money in order to make money”. We all know that film studios are never ones to shy away from exorbitant movie budgets if there is a profit to be made. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn’t. Plenty of examples out there of movies with overblown budgets that bankrupted entire studios.

The TV industry works in very much the same way but on a smaller scale. When you have to produce up to 25 episodes per year for a show you do not have the luxury of a “one and done” type scenario. Instead, you need to plan ahead if you want your show to be popular, but profitable at the same time.

This can definitely be done. Game of Thrones has showed us that a TV show can have a budget that would make a Lannister blush »

Steven Spielberg Wants Bryan Cranston to Bring All The Way to TV with a Miniseries

9 June 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fresh off a Tony Award for Best Lead Actor in a Play in All the Way, actor Bryan Cranston may be bringing his buzzworthy performance as President Lyndon B. Johnson to the small screen.  Deadline reports that Steven Spielberg is in the process of optioning the stage play for a miniseries adaptation through his Amblin banner, and he wants Cranston to reprise the lead role.  Cranston has been drawing raves on the stage for his performance as Lbj in a story that spans the first year of Johnson’s administration, and it appears that Spielberg sees great potential in bringing the story to a wider television audience.  More after the jump. Deadline notes that it’s currently not clear where the potential All the Way miniseries would end up, but Spielberg has a pretty strong relationship with HBO having produced the Band of Brothers and The Pacific miniseries at the pay cable channel. »

Premiere of ‘The Sixties’ Brings Younger Viewers to CNN

30 May 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The premiere of 12-part series “The Sixties” provided CNN with a much-needed primetime ratings jolt when it premiered Thursday, making the cabler the top-rated news network for the hour in the industry’s key demo.

According to fast national data from Nielsen, “When Television Came of Age,” the first of the 10-part “The Sixties,” averaged 284,000 adults 25-54 in the 9 o’clock hour — narrowly ahead of Fox News (273,000) and comfortably ahead of MSNBC (115,000).

CNN had aired two segments of its “Sixties” series previously, though those were telecast during times of higher-viewing levels and were timed to 50-year anniversaries. The segment on the JFK assassination averaged 508,000 adults 25-54 in November, and “The British Invasion” drew 305,000 in adults 25-54; both will be part of the current 12-part series.

In total viewers, Thursday’s “The Sixties” (1.390 million) ranked second among newsies, behind Fox News (1.919 million) and ahead of MSNBC (723,000).

Watch: A Cool 10-Minute Tribute to the Films of Steven Spielberg

26 May 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

On this Memorial Day, let's take a look at the filmography of a director who has paid fitting tribute to those who have lost their lives fighting for our country in films like Saving Private Ryan and miniseries like "Band of Brothers" and 'The Pacific" on HBO. Steven Spielberg might very well be the most recognizable and well-known director in modern cinema, and his name acts as a seal of approval for the films and TV series that he produces as well. Now a tribute video has been put together in honor of Spielberg by editing a 10-minute montage using clips from all the films Spielberg has directed. Watch it! Here's The Films of Steven Spielberg from YouTube user Ethan Cooper (via The Playlist): As you may have noticed, the video only covers the years 1971-2011, because it was posted online in the summer of 2012, before Spielberg's most recent film, »

Remote Control Prods.: Hans Zimmer’s Music Factory as a Breeding Ground

7 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Remote Control Prods., Hans Zimmer’s post-production company, is located within a sprawling seven-building complex in a commercial area of Santa Monica. At its center is Zimmer’s personal studio, designed to look like “a 19th-century Viennese brothel,” as the composer says with a wink.

The oak walls and floors, vintage analog synthesizers and built-in library shelves offer a sharp contrast to the remaining 50,000 square feet of studio space: an ultra-modern maze of composer suites, state-of-the-art recording and mixing facilities, and related small businesses. About 85 people work there, according to Zimmer’s business partner Steven Kofsky.

Remote Control, Zimmer’s loanout company, is one of more than a dozen tenants on the property, all owned by another Zimmer-Kofsky company called 14th Street Grille (which started in the mid-1990s and has been expanding throughout the block ever since).

Fifteen other composers, all friends or former associates of Zimmer, rent space: »
