If you’re the sort of TV viewer who has disregarded everything Starz has done since it stupidly cancelled Party Down, you might want to give the premium-cable network another shot with Outlander. Adapted by Battlestar Galactica honcho Ronald D. Moore from Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling series of novels, the show (debuting August 9) follows Claire Randall, an Englishwoman inexplicably transported from the 1940s to 18th-century Scotland, where she encounters bearded kilt-wearers, bawdy Gaelic humor, and way more gore than you’d ever expect to see on a program that, in less-creative hands, could easily have been a mawkish bodice-ripper. In this exclusive clip that takes place moments after Claire wakes up in the Highlands in the 1700s, Claire runs into the nefarious British redcoat Captain Jack Randall, who just happens to be a direct ancestor of (and dead ringer for) her 1940s-husband, Frank. Things get tense! »

The weather and the use of horses are the biggest challenges in shooting “Outlander,” a new television show based on the popular series of novels set in Scotland in the mid-1700s, said executive producer Ronald D. Moore. Moore, who developed the “Battlestar Galactica” series that ran from 2003-09 on the Sci-Fi Channel, was part of a panel discussion about “Outlander” on Monday night at the 92nd Street Y in New York. In addition to three cast members, the panel included author Diana Gabaldon, »

With all this recent chatter about introducing more female superheroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many comic book movie fans have found themselves repeating one name: Katee Sackhoff. The actress has a large sci-fi fanhood following thanks to her time playing Starbuck on the reimagined version of Battlestar Galactica, and many of those same people want to see her take on more big genre pictures - making Marvel a natural fit. Of course, it's all dreams and speculation until news comes down officially from Marvel, but at the very least Sackhoff does seem to be sticking close to the Marvel family. Earlier today, the actress posted an update for her fans on her Twitter page and revealed that she will soon be meeting up with one of the most important people in Marvel Comics history: I'm wearing red leather to my meeting with @TheRealStanLee today, sorta just seemed appropriate..

The move comes less than two weeks after Screendaily was the first to reveal that Im Global had signed a deal to produce its first episodic, The Killing Pool.
Stern will be based in Im Global’s Los Angeles office and will be charged with creating high-quality scripted content via what a company representative claimed would be “an innovative approach” to development, production and deal-making.
“We’ve spent a considerable amount of time exploring the right entry point for Im Global to enter the television business and Mark brings to our new operation an outstanding track record, skill set and profile,” said Im Global founder and CEO Stuart Ford.

Sunday night’s episode of Masters of Sex, titled “Fight,” was one of the series’ best. It stuck the show’s two main characters, Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen) and his assistant/lover Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), in a single hotel room and then let them batter out their anxieties and anger through flirtation, role play, and sex, all while an actual boxing match rages on TV.
In TV parlance, episodes like “Fight,” where characters are restricted to a few sets, are often called “bottle episodes”—they’re cheaper to make (you don’t have to build new sets or »

This hot new trailer for the upcoming thriller Constantine was unveiled on Saturday, July 26, as Warner Bros. Television Presents a Night of DC Entertainment at Comic-Con 2014. Matt Ryan stars as John Constantine, an irreverent, working-class con man and occult expert waging war against the forces of darkness - from both within himself and the outside world. Take a look at the first footage before the series premieres Friday, October 24, at 10/9c on NBC, then read on for information about newly confirmed characters.
Series creator David S. Goyer recently spoke with IGN, where he confirmed that Papa Midnite and the Newcastle Crew from the Hellblazer comics will be popping up in Season 1.
"We have access to the occult corner of the DC Universe. I'm sure many of you saw the Doctor Fate helmet [in the pilot], and that was a clear indicator of our intentions."
TV isn’t what it used to be. With production costs spiralling upwards, more furiously engaged fandoms and a shift towards “binge-watch” culture, there has never been a better time to be a fan of the small screen.
And as we’re on the verge of hitting the midway point of the decade there really is no better time than now to take a gander back and see what televised treats have been wowing us for the last five (ish) years. But before you get ahead of yourselves with the guessing and the surmising, this humble feature is celebrating programs that began to air from 2010 onwards, so as good as they were, save your vocal defence of the likes of Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Deadwood, The Wire and Battlestar Galactica for elsewhere.
Looking back, the 10s have been a veritable proving ground of exciting new shows. There’s been comedy (New Girl, »

When you cover press tour and Comic-Con back to back, you tend to hear a lot of the same anecdotes and explanations again in rapid succession. This was mostly true in the case of NBC's "Constantine" making its Comic-Con debut — with a screening of the pilot episode, followed by a 10 minute Q&A with the stars and producers David Goyer and Daniel Cerone — but there were some notable new things since last I saw this bunch at press tour. For starters, the version of the pilot the Comic-Con audience screened had two significant changes from the one critics were sent earlier in the summer: 1)In the climactic showdown between occult specialist John Constantine (Matt Ryan) and a powerful demon, the elaborate CGI demon from the original cut was replaced by Matt Ryan himself playing a dark mirror image of Constantine; and 2)The final exchange between Constantine and angel Manny (Harold Perrineau »

The upcoming Starz "Outlander" won't premiere for a few more weeks, but you can see how it all begins here. Starz has released the show's opening credits, featuring new footage. The time travel-romance finds 20th century nurse Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) sent back to 18th century Scotland, where she discovers romance and adventure with swashbuckling highlander James Fraser (Sam Heughan). Executive produced by Ronald D. Moore ("Battlestar Galactica"), the series is based on the novels by Diana Gabaldon. The new opening features an arrangement of the Scottish folk ditty "Skye Boat Song" by the show's composer (and fellow "Battlestar" vet) Bear McCreary featuring the vocals of his singer wife Raya Yarbrough. Watch the opening credits here: The show's first episode premiered at Comic-Con. "Outlander" premieres August 9 at 9 p.m. on Starz. »

Starz’ Outlander had its world premiere screening to a rapturous crowd of 1,500 fans in downtown San Diego on Friday night. But before the airing the first episode, Emmy-winning composer Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead) treated the audience to a live performance of the show’s score, including his title credits song. It’s an arrangement of the Scottish folk tune “The Skye Boat Song” — appropriate for Starz’ romantic adventure following a 20th century woman who travels back in time to 18th century Scotland.
Below we exclusively have the Outlander credit sequence, including new footage from the series. The song, »

While speaking with "The Walking Dead" co-star Lauren Cohan at this year's Sdcc, we asked the outgoing actress if she would be open to returning to "Supernatural" if the opportunity arose. Her response should make fans of her character on the show happy.
Cohan said she'd love to, especially as the series enters what are likely its final few seasons, but nothing is in the works. Her smile conveyed fond memories of her time there as she laughed and added that she'll have to make some phone calls.
In Season 3 Cohan portrayed the attractive mercenary Bela Talbot, one of the few characters on "Supernatural" able to pull a fast one on the Winchesters, which of course meant that fan reaction to her was mixed. She appeared in six Season 3 episodes and was presumed killed, but hey, this is "Supernatural" we're talking about... nobody stays dead forever! And besides, we'd love »

Falling Skies is halfway through its fourth season, which saw a lot of changes from season 3, along with the addition of new showrunner David Eick. With the 2nd Mass separated after an Espheni attack, our ensemble cast found themselves in very different worlds from one another.
“In Tom’s world we were in darkness. Lexi’s world—it was light. It was almost like Munchkinland,” Eick said during the show’s Comic-Con panel. “In Anne’s world it was very gritty but stripped down.”
At Comic-Con, Eick and the show’s cast hinted at what’s to come on Falling Skies »

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. was often criticized for not utilizing its full potential in its first season, but the writers and show-runners are looking to remedy that in year two. Part of making the show more exciting involves bringing in characters from the comics, which is something fans were hoping for since the beginning.
It looks like things are going to change a bit in season two, as it was announced today during the Marvel TV panel at San Diego Comic-Con that several new characters would be joining the show. Xena: Warrior Princess and Battlestar Galactica alum Lucy Lawless will play Isabelle Hartley, a longtime S.H.I.E.L.D. veteran with a penchant for knives, while Trollied star Nick Blood will play a mercenary named Lance Hunter, who in the comics is the director of S.T.R.I.K.E., the UK version of S.H. »
