Boasting a host of international talent including Ian Somerhalder (The Vampire Diaries, Lost), Brian Cox (The Bourne Ultimatum, Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect, Project X) and Luke Hemsworth (The Reckoning, Infini), The Anomaly is directed by Noel Clarke who also takes on the lead role of traumatised ex-soldier Ryan – and thanks to the folks at Universal Pictures (UK) we have three copies of the film to giveaway on Blu-ray!
When Ryan wakes up in the back of a van, alongside a kidnapped boy and helps him escape, he comes to an appalling realisation…. But there’s no time to act – after nine minutes and forty seven seconds of consciousness it all goes black. What does this have to do with Ryan’s past as a patient at the experimental Medical Unit? Ryan has a lot of questions, and very little time to find any answers. »

“The Bachelor” will try to spice things up with a 3-hour live premiere The Jan. 5 season premiere will mix in taped segments, such as the limo arrivals, with Chris Harrison live with a studio audience joined by "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" alums offering commentary, according to TV Line. The live premiere may be a response to concerns that "Bachelor" Chris Soules is "boring" and "as exciting as watching soybeans grow." Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's newly elected successor declines Jimmy Kimmel’s invitation John Tory, who was elected this week to replace Mayor Rob Ford, says he’s not going on the ABC talk show because “I’m not in show business.” He adds: Let’s talk (about) why I’m there. I’m there because the previous guy was the subject of jokes and all the sort of stuff and they’ll probably replay old tapes. I just don’t »

For fans of The Leftovers, the long wait for Season 2 might bring on the urge to wear white, light up a cigarette and take a vow of silence in protest of the show’s hiatus.
Fortunately, showrunner Damon Lindelof is back at work on the HBO drama, and he’s got big plans for the show’s sophomore run.
Lindelof, who is once again working alongside author Tom Perrotta (whose novel inspired Season 1), says the series will maintain an air of “ambiguous mystery” when Season 2 debuts in 2015.
To tide us over until the show’s return, Lindelof offered TVLine a »
Though they may be used to being the boss behind-the-scenes, showrunners from an array of favorite dramas and comedies found themselves at the center of attention Tuesday night at a panel after the premiere of the documentary “Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show.”
Janet Tamaro, Mike Royce, Damon Lindelof, Ali LeRoi, Hart Hanson, Steven S. DeKnight and Matthew Carnahan gathered on stage at the Television Academy for a discussion moderated by Tara Bennett, author of the film’s companion book, and picked each other’s brains about experiences wearing the showrunner hat.
While Hanson equated the process of being a showrunner to having sex — “You don’t get to see how too many other people do it” — Tamaro described the challenge more as “metal on metal crashing,” dealing with the multitude of decisions that need to be made at any given moment.
Among the hot topics, the showrunners touched on Netflix, »

The obvious takeaway from the new documentary “Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show,” is that writers rooms are stocked with donuts and cupcakes – and that being a showrunner is very hard.
“It’s like painting a painting while writing a novel while doing your taxes,” says “House of Lies” creator and showrunner Matthew Carnahan in the film. “Utterly consuming,” adds Joss Whedon. “It’s too good to quit, and too hard to do,” says Bill Prady.
The three showrunners and many more opened up to filmmaker Des Doyle and his team, and at the film’s Tuesday night premiere at the Television Academy, the showrunners and filmmakers talked about being a part of the ambitious undertaking.
“I’ve always been fascinated with what goes on behind the scenes, and that got me into filmmaking,” said Doyle. Doyle grew up in Ireland a fan of American television and said »

Question: Do you have any scoop on Castle Episode 8? —Jess
Ausiello: Titled “Kill Switch,” the episode revolves around a routine investigation that turns deadly when a gunman takes hostages on a subway car — including one of the 12th’s finest. Bonus Scoop: Married with Children‘s Ted McGinley is set to guest-star in Episode 9’s Expendables riff as Brock Harmon, an aging, larger-than-life B-movie action vet (and the husband of the recently cast Krista Allen).

AMC has hired a director to take on The Walking Dead companion series they are developing. Adam Davidson will direct the pilot episode and help develop this separate story that will follow a different group of survivors. Davidson is a very talented individual who won an Oscar in 1991 for a short film he directed called "The Lunch Date." Since then has worked on a ton of high profile TV series such as Community, Fringe, True Blood, Rome, Dexter, Deadwood, and Lost. He's not a new face around AMC either, as he's worked with them on shows such a as Turn: Washington’s Spies, Low Winter Sun, and Hell on Wheels. The guy is more than qualified to take on this new Walking Dead series.
The new show will be set in the same zombie world as the current TV series, but it will feature a whole new group of »

With Halloween just around the corner, we put together a list of the 13 scariest Emmy wins of all time. Scroll through our photo gallery below, if you dare.... -Break- Join the frightening Emmy discussion in our fiery forums It's no secret that TV shows with sci-fi, horror or fantasy angles face an uphill battle at the Emmys. In fact, only one such show has ever won Best Drama Series: "Lost" in 2005. The good news? In recent decades, buttoned-up Emmy voters have slowly started to embrace actors and actress from genre series, which suggests they may not be as chicken as they once were. Gillian Anderson ("The X-Files"), Michael Emerson ("Lost") and Jessica Lange ("American Horror Story") are just a few spooky examples from the past 20 years, but there are many more. What is your current Golden Globe prediction for Best TV Movie/Limited Series? Will it be the spooky "American Horror St. »

That exact same question popped into my head during tonight’s episode of The Voice, where Gwen Stefani harajuku’d Season 7’s most ebullient contestant in favor of yet another plaintive balladeer complete with sad-puppy expressions and a hipster hat.
Ok, so maybe Troy Richie’s vocal on “Hey Ya!” suffered a tiny bit at the expense of his Hammertime side-shuffle and his crowd-baiting callouts. But couldn’t the world of reality singing »
Exclusive: Lost star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is tackling another role in a Sony film, this time joining Will Smith in the studio’s untitled NFL concussion drama directed by Parkland‘s Peter Landesman. Akinnuoye-Agbaje starred recently in disaster period pic Pompeii and the upcoming Annie remake for Sony. He’ll play real-life NFL safety Dave Duerson, a three-time Pro Bowl pick who died in 2011 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest. At his request, Duerson’s brain was sent to researchers, who determined that the athlete had suffered from the debilitating symptoms of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (Cte) caused by his football injuries.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alec Baldwin, Bitsie Tulloch, and Albert Brooks also star in the film which centers on Smith’s forensic neuropathologist Dr. Bennett Omalu, whose studies on Cte prompt the NFL to take brain-related injuries seriously.

Now of course we all believe this to be nothing more than complete and utter rubbish but the slim chance of this being fact is enough to haunt show followers. No one buys into the it was all a dream copout. Its the one surefire way to wrap a series on a dreadful universally despised note. Just ask Jj Abrams who toyed with a very similar idea on the once beloved survivor series Lost. Lets just say the ending didnt leave fans all too pleased and most felt as though theyd thrown away six seasons worth of time (I bailed after four seasons of endless questions and absolutely zero answers for the record) on a lame we dont know how to complete this story series that probably shouldnt have ever been as engaging as it was. »

Marvel's Agent Carter is ABC's second action packed series from the creative minds at Marvel, inspired by the feature films Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger and Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier along with the short Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter
Years before Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team swore to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive, there was Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, Marvel's "Captain America: The First Avenger," Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"), who pledged the same oath but lived in a different time when women weren't recognized as being as smart or as tough as their male counterparts.
But no one should ever underestimate Peggy.
It's a truth universally acknowledged that a person in want of a good project will adapt Pride and Prejudice-if not always to dazzling effect. The latest take, a two-part miniseries called Death Comes to Pemberley, premiered yesterday on PBS. And if there's anything P&P fans like almost as much as Austen's book, it's consuming and then critiquing the various interpretations of it. Which is why we're taking this opportunity to rank 13 different iterations of Pride & Prejudice, from the best (the 1995 miniseries starring Colin Firth is a nigh-untouchable high point) to the significantly less great. 1.

We’ve known for a while that The Walking Dead was getting a companion series. The further details of this project have remained a mystery since the show was announced, though.
Speculation has been rife as to the central plot of the spin-off – will we see another group of survivors in the wild, a group of top scientists searching, a cure or a military view on proceedings or something else entirely? There’s currently no clues either way.
Today though, we learnt who will be helming the show’s pilot episode. Adam Davidson, who picked up the Best Live Action Short Film Oscar for The Lunch Date in 1991, will direct the show’s premiere outing.
Things are starting to gear up for AMC's upcoming companion series to "The Walking Dead," as Deadline brings word that Academy Award winner Adam Davidson has been brought on to helm the pilot episode of the new series. Davidson won the Best Live Action Short Film Oscar back in 1991 for The Lunch Date and has gone on to direct countless episodes of television including "Lost," "Deadwood," "Dexter," "Rome," "True Blood," "Fringe," "Community," and even AMC's own "Hell on Wheels" and "Turn: Washington's Spies." »
