I have to admit, this is a pretty cool trailer for ABC’s new mystery drama “Resurrection”. It’s so good, in fact, that I have a really hard time believing it’s going to last more than a year on a network that caters to fans of mind-numbingly awful, soul-destroying shows like “Dancing with the Stars”, “The Bachelor”, and “Grey’s Anatomy”. But hey, I’ve been wrong before, so maybe I’m wrong again because the trailer for “Resurrection” really pulled me in and I’m dying to know what happens next. Is this kid some kind of demon? Angel? Jesus, maybe? Does he now have superpowers? Is Omar Epps going to call Dr. House for help? I don’t know! And I want to find out! The people of Arcadia, Missouri are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to return. An 8-year-old American boy »
Netflix continues its exploration of proprietary content with Hemlock Grove, a mystery-horror series from the mind of splatter director Eli Roth (Inglourious Basterds). When a teenage girl is brutally murdered in the titular town, two unlikely allies band together to find her killer. Their search will uncover a local band of werewolves and secrets long thought buried by the elite of Hemlock Grove.
Though listed as the primary creative force behind Hemlock Grove, Roth will only direct the pilot and executive-produce the rest of the series. Deran Serafian (House M.D.) and T.J. Scott (Spartacus: War of the Damned) will handle directorial duties for the rest of the series. Hemlock Grove stars Famke Janssen (Taken 2), Bill Skarsgård (Anna Karenina), Landon Liboiron (Terra Nova), and Dougray Scott (My Week With Marilyn).

ShockTillYouDrop.com spoke with executive producer Eli Roth (who directed the first episode as well) briefly about this transformation which appears in an episode directed by Deran Serafian.
Serafian is where our conversation with Roth began because, in case the name doesn't jump out at you, Serafian spent the early days of his career on the Italian horror scene before going on to produce shows like House M.D.
Inside, Roth talks about the werewolf transformation, why gore has gone mainstream on television and offers an update on his cannibal film The Green Inferno. All 13 episodes of Hemlock Grove season one will be available exclusively on Netflix beginning April 19th.

'Doctor Who' star Matt Smith wants a safari park in the Tardis. The latest series of the hit BBC sci-fi drama is expected to reveal more of the interior to the Time Lord's time machine and the actor - who will star alongside new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman in the new run - would love to see the eccentric Doctor house all sorts of exotic animals inside the Tardis. He explained: ''I really wanted to see the Doctor's bedroom but we don't, unfortunately. What's really exciting about the episode when we do find out a bit more about the Tardis is that it's »
According to TV Line, Wydra has been recruited to join True Blood as Violet, a "strong, sexy, possibly dangerous vamp on par with the Eric Northmans and Bill Comptons of the world." Sounds to me like she will end up in the sack with either/both Bill and Eric considering the show's "shock value" direction over the past few seasons.
Wydra is best known for her recurring single-season role as Dr. House's wife Dominika on the Fox series House. She will next be seen in Europa Report with Sharlto Copley later this year, but not before vamping it up on True Blood this summer.

Five days after she was hospitalized for a seizure, Kelly Osbourne has left the hospital and is expected to be just fine. The TV host's doctors have determined that she is unlikely to have future episodes and can therefore get back to her life.
The strange situation began on Thursday (March 7) when Osbourne suffered a seizure during a taping of her E! show, "Fashion Police." She was quickly rushed to the hospital, where doctors examined her to determine whether or not the seizure had been caused by epilepsy or some other disease.
Now, according to a report from E! News, the doctors think Osbourne will be just fine. A statement from her rep to the news outlet stated that "Kelly Osbourne has returned home and has been given a clean bill of health by her doctor... Doctors ran numerous tests and determined that this was most likely a onetime episode »
Now here’s a dangerously (good) liaison: NBC has lured John Malkovich (Dangerous Liaisons) for the period pirate drama Crossbones, a series in the works for next season. Malkovich will play Edward Teach, a.k.a Blackbeard, who “ruled over the pirates, thieves and ne’er-do-wells on the Bahamian island of New Providence in the early 1700s.” Crossbones has a 10-episode series order; it was supposed to air sometime this season but will likely go next fall, instead.
The was originally talk that Hugh Laurie would play the role of Blackbeard as a follow-up to his work on Fox’s »

Paging Dr. House! Kelly Osbourne could use Hugh Laurie's character's diagnosing expertise. The Fashion Police cohost is "doing fine" after her seizure scare last Thursday, but doctors are still trying to pinpoint what caused her to fall ill. Kelly, of course, is finding the humor in her uncertain medical diagnosis. She tweeted Sunday, "My life is now like an episode of House = the impending fight against death and the look of fear in everyones faces!" We're optimistic that Kelly's real-life doctors are just as talented as Dr. House was on TV! In the meantime, we're sending lots of love, positivity and prayers her way. »

Apparently geek socks are a thing now. We recently showed you some cool Star Trek Spock socks, and today we bring you some Star Wars R2-D2 and Yoda socks. How many Star Wars geeks do you think will be wearing a pair of these while waiting in line for a week to see Star Wars: Episode VII? I'll admit, I might not be wearing the socks, but I'll be in line to see the first screening of the movie for as long as I have to.
You can grab yourself a pair of these over at SuperHeroStuff if you want. They'll cost you $9.
The Star Wars Yoda and R2D2 Socks 2-Pack should have been called the 'Scholars of Star Wars Socks'. Honestly, Yoda is one of the strongest Jedi ever and I'm pretty sure that all of those beeps and boops from R2-D2 translate into some kind »

Pushing Daisies star Anna Friel will play the younger sister of a cardinal in The Vatican, a drama pilot in the works at Showtime that’s described as a provocative contemporary genre thriller about spirituality, power and politics – set against the modern-day political machinations within the Catholic church.
Friel will play opposite Kyle Chandler, who’s set to depict Cardinal Duffy. Friel’s Kayla is a sexually active, hard-partying New Yorker who is openly rebellious against all norms and institutions, including the church.

He's directed numerous X-Men, Superman, Tom Cruise, Verbal Kint and Dr. House, but before getting back to the X-Men, he visited the land of giants. In theaters this weekend is Jack the Giant Slayer, directed by Bryan Singer (of Public Access, Usual Suspects, Apt Pupil, X-Men, X2, Superman Returns and Valkyrie), starring Nicholas Hoult as in an epic new take on the Jack and the Bean Stalk story. I interviewed Bryan when offered the opportunity recently, as a fan I couldn't say no even though we couldn't talk about X-Men. But we did talk about Jack before his return to Montreal for seven months of work on Days of Future Past. My interview was conducted over the phone with Bryan Singer. We were asked by the publicist to keep our questions specifically related to Jack the Giant Slayer and not any other movies. I always wish I had more time »

Fact: You can't go anywhere in leather leggings these days without stealing some other star's look. The latest culprits are Olivia Wilde and Miranda Kerr. The Tron actress stepped out in her version of the look: Black leather bottoms paired with a fluffy black short-sleeved sweater and snakeskin pumps. We're into the mixed fabrics and the black and white shoes are a nice contrast. Olivia's competition went for an all black approach: The Victoria's Secret Angel rocked a collared black shirt, long black trench and pointy black shoes. Oh, and her sunglasses were black, too. We're throwing our support behind our favorite House M.D. doctor, but which lady in leather to do »

It’s pilot season, which means your favorite out-of-work TV actors, actresses, creators and writers are getting a chance to return to the small screen once more.
Although we have yet to know what new series we’ll see next year, the networks have been busy selecting projects to consider for their schedules. So far, almost 100 scripts have been chosen, and audiences will only get to see a handful actually come to fruition.
Several are duds, but there are a few promising prospects that I hope network executives will keep around for the 2013-2014 season — even if it means they have to cancel old favorites to make room (just keep Parks and Recreation, Ok, NBC?).
Check out my choices for the best prospective ABC and Fox pilots, and read my selections for NBC and CBS if you missed them yesterday:

The secretive live-action project from Walt Disney Studios, which was previously titled 1952, is scheduled to be released in theaters in December 2014. Tomorrowland is written by Damon Lindelof (Prometheus, Lost) and Brad Bird (The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol from a concept by Lindelof and Jeff Jensen. Lindelof will produce while Bird will produce and also direct. Hugh Laurie, star of Fox's hit TV series House M.D., has now been revealed as the second cast member on the project. No details about his role have been released though it's confirmed he will play the villain to George Clooney's character. Story details have also been kept very secretive. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the only information about the film's story is that it is »

Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights), who has seemingly been in every movie that came out in 2012, could be returning to the small screen this year for Showtime's drama pilot The Vatican. The series gained some extra interest this winter when it was announced Ridley Scott (Prometheus) would be directing the pilot, continuing a trend of film directors setting their sights newly on television (which is great news for TV fans). The Vatican will (unlike the network's other Vatican-related series, The Borgias) take place in modern times, and has been described as a "thriller" that will focus on both the politics and spiritual aspects of the modern day Catholic church. Hit the jump for more on the potential series, as well as Chandler's much-anticipated role. Chandler will be portraying Cardinal Thomas Duffy, a charismatic Archbishop of New York whose progressive ideas cause a schism (yes I went there) among church leaders. »

The Friday Night Lights and Zero Dark Thirty Emmy winner has been one of the most sought-after actors this TV pilot season. Chandler will play Cardinal Thomas Duffy, “the charismatic yet enigmatic Archbishop of New York, whose progressive leanings excite some and alarm others within the hierarchy of the Catholic Church.”

After becoming famous for becoming the grouchy and morally complex Dr. House on Fox's House, Hugh Laurie has shed what used to be a career in comedy, and now seems poised to take on his biggest bad guy role yet. He's in talks to join Tomorrowland, the Brad Bird-directed Disney project that already has George Clooney on board in the lead role. Because we don't know much at all about Tomorrowland-- that Brad Bird loves his secrecy!-- there's no detail on what Laurie's role might be, with THR only willing to call him the antagonist. Bird will be directing from a script by former Lost show runner Damon Lindelof and Jeff Jensen, an editor at Entertainment Weekly. Lindelof also comes by his love of secrecy honest, having worked on the J.J. Abrams-produced Lost and then put in work on Prometheus, which contained plenty of twists kept »
