With the recent release of Tom Clancy’s The Division by Ubisoft and the news that Jake Gyllenhaal will produce and star in a movie based on the game we decided to speak with a person whom is very familiar with Tom Clancy’s work, composer Bill Brown. Brown began his career scoring Clancy’s Rainbow Six in 1998 and since then scored eight more Clancy games along with many other projects such as CSI: NY and Season 2 of Dominion. In this interview Bill discusses his time working on Clancy’s games along with releasing 2 never before heard demo tracks from Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Raven Shield was released in 2003. What differences in the game do you think there would be if it was released today, in 2016?
I’ve heard that politically / diplomatically they would have to handle it differently today. All of that is above my pay grade though. »

An alum of “CSI: NY,” Callaway served as a writer/producer on the procedural for more than 120 episodes. Last TV season, he was co-exec producer on CBS’s “Rush Hour,” which was not renewed for a second season, freeing up his schedule for “Apb.”
Callaway boarding “Apb” comes after Fox’s midseason drama saw a shuffle up top with Nix stepping in to overhaul the script that was originally penned by “Apb” creator David Slack, who exited the project over creative differences. In the pilot phase, Nix was co-running with director and exec producer Len Wiseman. At the time of the behind-the-scenes changes, Variety reported that should the project go to series, a new showrunner would be named.
Callaway was showrunner and exec producer on “The Messengers,” which was on the CW for one season. He was co-exec producer on NBC’s “Revolution.” On the film side, he wrote the screenplay for “I Still Know What You Did Last Summer.”
Callaway is repped CAA and Rain Management Group.

It's officially the end of an era at CBS, with the network canceling its latest -- and last remaining -- "CSI" property, "CSI: Cyber," bringing the once-revered franchise to an end.
"CSI: Cyber" ran for two abbreviated season on CBS, though it was never able to achieve the heights of its parent series, "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," which exploded onto the scene in 2000 and was once the most-watched program on television, peaking at more than 26 million viewers in its heyday. In contrast, "Cyber" -- the third spinoff of the franchise, following "CSI: Miami" and "CSI: New York" -- scored only a fraction of those numbers throughout its short run, pulling in 10.46 million sets of eyeballs at the beginning of its first season, and starting its second with just 6.79 million viewers.
According to Deadline, "Cyber" was hurt by its season two Sunday night timeslot, which frequently clashed with NFL games, though »

The demise of the Patricia Arquette-Ted Danson procedural means that CBS will be entering a new TV season without a CSI-branded program on the schedule for the first time in 16 years. CSI: Cyber was the fourth CSI series, following the mothership (which ran from 2000-2015), and fellow spinoffs CSI: Miami (2002-2012) and CSI: NY (2004-2013).

The original “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” aired for 15 seasons, bowing in October 2000 and concluding as a series in February 2015 before airing a two-hour farewell movie in September.

But “CSI: Cyber” never reached the heights of its predecessors. Airing mostly on Sundays this season, “CSI: Cyber” averaged a 1.5 rating in adults »

Fans of mid-80s network TV adventure shows probably hold MacGyver pretty close to their hearts, along with Magnum Pi, Knight Rider, and probably Tom Sellick’s mustache, come to think of it. And in great news for TV executives, those same fans are now grownups with bank accounts, mortgages and children….and a desperate need for escapes from those things. Nostalgic escapes, preferably. And so it has come to pass that nostalgia has become synonymous with TV in particular these days, with practically every show from our collective childhood being revived in some form or another. They were bound to get around to MacGyver sooner or later, and the upcoming revival has apparently found its lead.

Leading out of Criminal Minds‘ 250th episode, CBS this Wednesday invited you to double down on danger, death and dismemberment by sampling a new spinoff — Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders. One episode into the globe-trotting offshoot, would you say it’s worth the trip?
Whereas Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior five years ago dared you to buy into a “rogue” Bau team that worked out of a dojo, Beyond Borders‘ biggest ask is that you believe the FBI has an International Response Unit that is deployed when »
Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
CBS has its procedural game down to a science. After ten seasons of success with the crime thriller Criminal Minds (and one not-so-successful spinoff, subtitled Suspect Behavior), the network has decided to section off a new segment of its FBI profiling world. Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders brings back the world-traveling team first introduced in the parent series and gives them their own cavalcade of off-putting psychopaths to chase down.
The difference here is moreso in location (Thailand and India in the two episodes sent for review, but suspect green screen suggests a CBS lot in Southern California) than team dynamics. Anyone familiar with this kind of cop show procedural formula will undoubtedly find easy pickings in the line-up of likable leads offered beyond the borders of Criminal Minds’ America-locked Og series. But there’s simply nothing else to the show: it is, unapologetically, »
