Wednesday’s best TV

19 May 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Men go meat-hunting in The Island With Bear Grylls, finding work is hard work in The Job Centre and Horizon asks, Is Binge Drinking Really That Bad? Plus NYPD detective Kate’s wedding is scuppered in Castle and Inspector George Gently confronts the bovver boys

It’s Christmas Eve 1969 and Martin Shaw’s grumpy copper knows who’s been naughty or nice. Investigating the aftermath of a bank job points Gently and sidekick Bacchus toward the local skinhead scene, where former Shameless tearaway Jody Latham lords it over a gang of bovver boys in braces and oxblood DMs. With Sten guns, car stunts and a skanking soundtrack, this action-packed episode ends the seventh series on a high, though it remains unclear whether George will return for some 1970s adventures.

12 forgotten hosts of the biggest TV shows from Brian Dunkleman to Daisy Donovan

12 May 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

American Idol was announced to be coming to an end after 15 seasons yesterday (May 12), but did you know that Ryan Seacrest used to have a co-host?

Brian Dunkleman hosted the Fox competition's first season alongside Ryan Seacrest, before the latter took sole control. History has not been kind to poor old Brian since, with Fox TV CEO Dana Walden joking about a possible reunion for the pair.

"Where is Brian Dunkleman? If you give me his number, I will call and invite him," she joked, though Dunkleman gave as good as he got last night:

I knew American Idol would never last without me #Cancelled

To honour Dunkleman, we have collected a few hosts of massive shows that you may have cruelly forgotten, starting with the man himself.

Mip TV: Tandem, BBC, Cochran Team for Crusade Epic ‘Lionhearts’ (Exclusive)

13 April 2015 12:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes – Shaping up as one of the big event TV series to come out of Europe as it ramps up ever more ambitious TV fiction, Rola Bauer’s Germany-based Tandem Productions (“Pillars of the Earth”), a Studiocanal company, is said to be developing epic TV drama “Lionshearts: The Crusade,” linking with the BBC and “24’s” Robert Cochran.

TV Review: ‘Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot’

29 March 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A rare romance from the typically dark imagination of children’s book author Roald Dahl, “Esio Trot” spells more than just “tortoise” backwards, but an evening of warm-fuzzy feelings all around as Dustin Hoffman’s Mr. Hoppy devises an elaborate scheme to woo the chelonian-loving widow downstairs, as played by Judi Dench. Commissioned as a New Year’s telepic for British TV, this delightful family offering is already making its way to homevideo in several European markets, but could potentially support a more substantial treatment Stateside, if someone were to shell out for theatrical (exec producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein bought all other U.S. rights).

Judging by Hoffman and Dench’s involvement alone, this is no ordinary TV movie. Co-written by “Love Actually’s” Richard Curtis (who shares credit with Paul Mayhew-Archer) and directed by smallscreen miracle worker Dearbhla Walsh (“Little Dorrit,” “Shameless”), the film has been crafted with »

Studiocanal Looks To Up Ante on U.S., European TV Drama Production

10 March 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Studiocanal, one of Europe’s largest film-tv production-distribution-sales forces, looks set to be driving more into the U.S. TV production business, following a major strategic realignment, splitting TV production and distribution, whose reverberations will play out over the whole company.

Move roles off Studiocanal’s forceful step-by-step entry into TV production from late 2012 – plus the large demand near worldwide for high-end English-language drama, and the emergence of digital TV platforms as potential new powerful buyers worldwide for top-notch TV fiction.

Studiocanal and German partner Tandem Productions aim “to increase our number of really international TV series productions, including dramas co-produced or co-financed out of the U.S. as Studiocanal extends the number of top-level partners it works with,” Studiocanal chairman-ceo Olivier Courson told Variety.

In one major move, former Shine International sales Svp Katrina Neylon, who has spent most of her career at Twentieth Century Fox Intl. TV and Disney ABC Intl. »

It was, literally, a dream come true on History’s Vikings (Thursdays, 10/9c) when the mystery man that Queen Aslaug, Siggy and Helga each saw during their sleep set foot in Kattegatt, his dripping blood smoldering in the snow.

What effect might this Wanderer, Harbard, have on the women while Ragnar, Rollo and Floki are off fighting? (While the proverbial cats are away, will the mice play…?) Kevin Durand (The Strain, Lost) previewed his visit to Kattegat and its lasting reverberations.

CBB's Kavana: 'Perez wasn't prescribed sleeping pills, it was Nytol!'

5 February 2015 9:02 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Kavana has claimed that Perez Hilton wasn't "prescribed heavy sleeping pills", instead getting just Nytol, during an interview following his eviction on Celebrity Big Brother last night (February 4).

The singer, who went out before Hilton in yesterday's live double eviction, also touched on his previous admission of being homeless, and revealed that Katie Price has asked him to be her wedding singer.

Speaking to Digital Spy and others about how he feels now he's left the house, he laughed: "Talk about twisted fairytale... I mean you couldn't have even wrote it, I need psychotherapy for the next two years!"

On what almost drove him mad, he replied: "Perez singing the musical theatre numbers while frothing at the mouth... was quite a moment. I mean it was the Perez Show, but it was dark and twisted."

Kavana did say, however, that Hilton had "been really good these last few days. He is just like a giant, »

Grimm Casts 'Prince William' to Play (Wait For It) a Royal

27 January 2015 9:58 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The man who was one half of Lifetime’s Wills and Kate will sit the throne once more, this time on NBC’s Grimm, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Nico Evers-Swindell, best known as Prince William in last year’s William & Kate TV movie, will play Prince Kenneth in at least two upcoming episodes.

Kenneth is described as handsome, ruthless and commanding. He’s sent to Portland by the King with the express intent of recovering Adalind’s daughter — which means that Viktor, who so far has fallen down on the job, should probably start making contingency plans, and quickly.

As If: 10 year retrospective of the cult Channel 4 teen drama - part 1

22 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Back in 2001, the landscape of British teen dramas didn't continue much further than Byker Grove, Grange Hill and a relatively new soap called Hollyoaks.

Since then, we've had plenty of shows that focus on the lives of a group of youths, from Skins to Misfits to Made in Chelsea. But there was one show that arguably kickstarted the modern teen drama without getting the kudos it deserves, and that show was As If.

Last year marked the 10th anniversary since the series came to an end, and so Digital Spy decided to look back on the show and find out what happened to some of its main cast members.

As If launched on January 22, 2001 on Channel 4 in the midweek early evening slot, and was later repeated on Sunday afternoons on T4. From series two onwards, it stayed as a T4 staple, but maintained its young adult themes, running for »
