Carlton Cuse, Ep/showrunner/director/writer of FX’s The Strain, isn't subscribing to the prevailing wisdom that viewers need to catch up on all existing episodes of a series if they are going to commit to watching. When he was making Lost for ABC, he said today at TCA, they were told regular viewers watched two out of four episodes, according to ABC research. But, for some reason, viewers have “trained themselves” that they must start at the beginning, Cuse observed. They… »

Greenlighting a greatly revamped Sleepy Hollow wasn’t easy, but reportedly was worth the anxiety.
Renewing the supernatural drama for a fourth season without co-lead Nicole Beharie, whose Abbie was killed off in the April finale, “was obviously a very hard conversation. Crane and Abbie were the spine of the show in a lot of ways, so it was difficult to figure out of it was right thing to do, to continue or not,” Fox entertainment president David Madden said on Monday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. »
There are endless ways to adapt Shakespeare to film, but it’s safe to say nobody’s doing it today with greater innovation than Matias Piñero. In four of his five spry features to date, the Argentine has depicted contemporary stories of young people facing a variety of challenges intertwined with Shakespearean texts. Piñero weaves the source material through his narratives in clever, unexpected fashion, from the romantic entanglements amid a rehearsal of “Twelfth Night” in “Viola” to the podcast adaptation of “Love’s Labour Lost” in “The Princess of France.” His latest, “Hermia & Helena,” finds a young woman adrift in New York while working on a translation of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” It’s the director’s first English-language production, but that’s not the only big change in his most intriguing effort to date.
“Hermia & Helena” dwells less on the parallels between a classical text and modern »

Anyone that follows any of my social media profiles (I’m on everything short of LinkedIn) is aware that I watch a lot of television. Discovering cult classics like The Prisoner to current hits like American Horror Story, I legit schedule my lack of social life around my shows. I do have morals and refuse to post spoilers unlike the many assholes out there who just can’t resist a good Game Of Thrones supposed death. My love always resides in horror and there’s a variety of horror programming on several networks, each aiming for their own Walking Dead hit, but I don’t stick to just one type of programming. There’s other shows I’ve been checking out (Ok, maybe obsessed with) that prove to be just as riveting and, at times, just as scary as what you might find in a murder house.
Lost's Jeremy Davies has been cast as a villain in the upcoming fourth season of the Sleepy Hollow TV show on Fox. TV Line reports he will play an "eccentric and outspoken tech mogul" billionaire Malcolm Dreyfuss, who is "seeking other worlds to conquer." Sleepy Hollow's 13-episode season four, which is set in Washington D.C., is slated to premiere mid-season on Fridays at 9:00pm Et/Pt, opposite NBC's Grimm.The report calls the Dreyfuss character "...a dark mirror to Tom Mison's Crane, since he represents capitalism and democracy gone awry — a perversion of the American dream that Crane and the Founding Fathers fought so hard to establish." Last week, the supernatural drama series cast Janina Gavankar in the recurring role of Diana, a Homeland »

He’s parodied everyone from Nirvana to The Kinks to Michael Jackson. But there was one person “Weird” Al Yankovic never got a chance to goof on - Prince. And sadly, with the artist’s passing earlier this year, Yankovic probably never will. In an interview with People magazine, the man behind such classics as “Like a Surgeon” and “I Lost on Jeopardy” explained that the Purple One rebuffed his ideas. "It's too bad," Yankovic said. "I hadn't approached him in about 20 years because he always said no, but I had this fantasy that he'd come out with a new song, I'd have a great idea, he'd finally say yes and it would erase decades of weirdness between us. But that's obviously not going to be the case." Yankovic continued, ”I had a parody of 'Let's Go Crazy' that was about The Beverly Hillbillies…And I wanted to do something funny with 'When Doves Cry, »

For over six decades, Disney has been igniting in little girls the dream of being a princess. Then, in 2001, with the help of Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway, the House of Mouse showed us that wearing the tiara is not all it’s cracked up to be. The Princess Diaries opened in theaters 15 years ago today. Hathaway’s Mia Thermopiles learns just what kind of pressure and responsibility is involved with being princess when she learns she’s the heir to the crown of Genovia. “I don’t want to run my own country. I just want to pass 10th grade,” she moans. It was the film debut of Anne Hathaway, who has since become Hollywood royalty herself, earning an Oscar for Les Misérables and nabbing coveted roles like Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. The Princess Diaries gave us Anne Hathaway, and it also gave us »

During a panel at the Television Critics Association press tour, Schur explained that each episode of the show has a contained story, and at the end, “something dramatic happens and it sends the story spiraling,” he said. “The model in my head is ‘Lost.'”
Of upcoming episodes beyond the pilot, he says, “I imagine this going in the ‘Lost’ way,” with cliffhangers and big events.

NBC’s new fall drama “This Is Us” may look like a spiritual successor to the network’s beloved “Parenthood,” but creator Dan Fogelman prefers to compare it to “a dramedy version of ‘Lost,'” because “you have to understand how these people are connected” to see the larger plan for the series. The cast, including Sterling K. Brown, Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz, Ron Cephas Jones, Chris Sullivan and Susan Kelechi Watson, and executive producers Fogelman, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa were on hand at NBC’s Television Critics Association summer press tour presentation to discuss the freshman drama.
The show centers around a group of people who share the same birthday, for reasons that will become clear after watching, and Fogelman admits that there is a type of “romantic melancholy to the whole thing that feels lifelike but also bigger than life,” since the show clearly lives in the real world but »

We're entering into the sixth season of Once Upon a Time, and things are looking dicey - not just because the Evil Queen is on the loose, either. We were included in a group of journalists who got the opportunity to sit down with the show's cast at Comic-Con, and we got a lot of juicy details. Creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis teased a lot about what's coming up, including how Aladdin will be incorporated into the story and that it's "the year of Snowing." Check it out! How prominent will Aladdin and Jafar be in the new season? Adam Horowitz: At first, we get a taste of them in the premiere. It takes a little bit to see how the Aladdin world fits in with the story.
