AMC is further padding its genre programming with two new series on the way: one called "Galyntine" and the other "Knifeman." No relation to the 60s folk group Galyntine and Knifeman. Garkfunkel wept. Read on for details.
From the Press Release:
“Galyntine” is a wholly-original vision rooted in a both fantasy/action adventure and science-fiction. The pilot takes place at a time after a cataclysmic technology-induced disaster has resulted in a new society that has eschewed any form of technology. This catastrophic event leaves small numbers of survivors scattered around the planet and forced to adapt to isolation and unique challenges. "Galyntine" will explore a post-apocalyptic world in which humanity has evolved – with some strange detours. Galyntine is a man’s journey of discovery through a changed world and its mysterious people.

With Breaking Bad finished and Mad Men almost wrapped up as well, AMC is looking for their next big original series. Today, they’ve announced pilot orders for two new genre projects that we’ll be keeping an eye on:
“These are both highly original and ambitious pilots that take us into worlds that we haven’t seen on TV before,” said Joel Stillerman, AMC’s executive vice president of programming, production and digital content. “The bawdiness and fun of Knifeman and London in the mid-18th century; and the completely unique take on a post-apocalyptic world in Galyntine are right in AMC’s wheelhouse of making television that is both unexpected and unconventional. They’re both driven by creative and production teams »

First AMC introduced The Walking Dead.
Then NBC launched the somewhat similar Revolution.
Now AMC is doing a new drama pilot that sounds … kinda like Revolution.
The cable network has ordered two new drama pilots, one of which is a post-apocalyptic tale after about society that eschews all forms of technology following a global disaster. The other is the tale of an 18th century surgeon. Check out the official descriptions of Knifeman and Galyntine below, both of which are in contentions for series orders for a 2015 debut:

Len Cariou has had great successes onstage, but he's happy television is his prime home now.
The star of such hit musicals as "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," "A Little Night Music" and "Applause" is in his fourth season as Henry Reagan, family patriarch and former New York police commissioner - the position now occupied by his son Frank (Tom Selleck) - on CBS' Friday drama "Blue Bloods."
Cariou is guaranteed at least one scene a week by the Reagan dinner-table gathering, and he's happy with the job in general.
"It's a great pleasure," he tells Zap2it. "We all have a great relationship, and I think it gives the show a uniqueness for a cop show. We get to know the family members and their different perspectives, and it's a very pleasant working situation. It's like I've gone to heaven."
Cariou credits that in large part to Selleck, »
Happy 75th birthday to one of our favorite actors, Christopher Lloyd!
The actor, who's played some of filmdom's most beloved characters, including Doc Brown in "Back to the Future," Professor Plum in "Clue," and Uncle Fester in the "Addams Family" films, was born on October 22, 1938 in Stamford, Conn.
Partly because of his height, and partly because of his manic intensity and commitment to even the wildest characters, he's portrayed a series of eccentrics, from mad scientists to aliens; had an impressive, award-winning theater career; and will always be remembered as Reverend Jim on "Taxi."
In honor of his 75th birthday, we've come up with 75 reasons why he's so awesome.
1. He's played a Klingon, a cartoon, the Wizard of Oz, an angel, a leper, and a geriatric vampire.
2. He stands an impressive 6'1."
3. Because he's so tall, he had to hunch over to appear in the same frame with "Back to the Future »

Currently, actor Raphael Sbarge is playing the character of psychiatrist Archie Hopper (a.k.a. Pinocchio’s conscience Jiminy Cricket) on the modern-day fairy tale show, Once Upon A Time, in which fairy tale characters have been transported to the “real world” town of Storybrooke, Maine, and robbed of their real memories by a powerful curse. It’s a lot of fun!
If you somehow haven’t encountered Once Upon A Time and Sbarge’s character there, however, you may also remember him as one of the main characters on The Guardian, Jake Straka. And if you’ve missed both of those shows, I can pretty much guarantee you’ve seen him in something. Why? Because Sbarge is one of those great TV actors who shows up in pretty much every show I’ve (or anyone’s) ever watched. From Prison Break to Quantum Leap, and Avatar: The Last Airbender to Murder She Wrote, »

Here’s some tentatively good news for gay TV. Fox has ordered six episodes of the John Mulaney comedy series that NBC rejected last spring. The original pilot included Martin Short, Nasim Pedrad and Elliott Gould as Mulaney’s gay neighbor. Currently, it sounds like Pedrad and Gould might not be a part of the Fox series. Let’s hope there’s still a gay neighbor on the show.
FX’s upcoming Fargo miniseries has added Colin Hanks to the cast as a single dad who is a police deputy.

When Bill Nye was announced as a new contestant for "Dancing With the Stars" in Season 17, many people hadn't heard of the scientist since his PBS show "Bill Nye the Science Guy" went off the air in 1998. But though he's never had quite as catchy a show title since, Nye has remained active in our pop culture for the past 15 years.
The "Dancing With the Stars" connection shouldn't have come out of left field, as Nye has a history of appearing on Hollywood reality competitions. He appeared on "Hollywood Squares" in 1999, "America's Most Smartest Model" in 2007 and was a guest expert on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" in 2008 and 2009. In addition, he returned to his television scientist roots several times in the shows "The Eyes of Nye," "The Climate Code" and "Stuff Happens." Nye even made appearances on fictional television shows like "Numb3rs" and "Stargate Atlantis."
Of course, he's »
Our favorite Pretty Little Liars spinoff is expanding its cast yet again as it prepares for its October premiere. Ravenswood, which is revolving around a group of five who become entangled in the curse surrounding the titular town, is a series that will be made or broken by its supporting cast. When your whole series is based around a generations long curse affecting a single town, you better be using the townspeople in effective ways. Ravenswood has put together its first important couple and, to make them feel just a bit more real, has cast a real life couple to bring the characters to life.
According to TVLine, married couple Henry Simmons (NYPD Blue) and Sophina Brown (Numb3rs) will both be recurring as Simon and Terry Beaumont, the parents of series regular Remy (Britne Oldford). Simon runs the local paper and is distrustful of out-of-towners, so watch out Caleb! Simon »

We floated a number of totally realistic ideas to explain Andy’s adonis-like transformation, but it seems showrunner Mike Schur has his own (admittedly much better) plan in mind.

“There is a joke that I wrote in the premiere that I think we’ll probably shoot that is a little tiny acknowledgement or nod to the fact that he looks very different to the way he normally looks,” the executive producer tells TVGuide. »

USA rolled out a pretty hefty list of new dramas in development at its upfront on Thursday (May 16) to go along with the two original comedies it's picked up.
The cable channel says it's ready to start production on "Horizon," a drama from "The Walking Dead" executive producer Gale Anne Hurd that's set in World War II. Written by Bridget Tyler ("Burn Notice"), it centers on a woman working at the FBI who stumbles on a top-secret project, code named "Horizon," that could provide answers about her husband's death. Needless to say, she also invites some trouble for herself with her investigation.
"Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas also has a show in the works at USA: "Blanco County," based on a series of books by Ben Rehder. It's about a retired baseball player who runs for sheriff in his small Texas hometown -- one that he's spent most of his »

One of your Once Upon a Time favorites has a very different part coming to a popular NBC series. The ABC fantasy drama’s August/ Pinocchio has signed on for a guest spot on Law & Order: Svu. This means congratulations are in order for the actor, Mr. Eion Bailey.
Frank Patterson is the name of Bailey’s Svu character, reported a THR exclusive. Patterson is an Iraq war vet, unfortunately suffering from Ptsd. When a sexual assault occurs at a night club, he becomes the key witness. Bailey’s episode is number 21 for the series and is scheduled to air this April.
The water cooler buzz has been heavy about Bailey’s Once Upon a Time character, given that he became Pinocchio for the first time just recently. What did you think about that little happenstance?
Of course Once does a solid job of mixing things up and changing your favorite child hood tales. »
