In what’s become the best, and craziest, show this summer, Fox’s Wayward Pines has become must-see TV.
The intense episodes play out more like a movie and the soundtrack is haunting and other-worldly.
Lakeshore Records has announced it will release the Wayward Pines – Original Television Soundtrack digitally on July 17 and on CD July 24, 2015. The album features the show’s original score by Charlie Clouser (Saw, Numb3rs).
“The main direction I received was that the score should help with the feeling that ‘something is not right’ in the town of Wayward Pines,” said Clouser. “For a while, we don’t know if Matt Dillon’s character is hallucinating, or maybe still in a coma and just dreaming, so the score needed to lean toward a ‘malfunctioning’ feel – that meant using sounds that are a little ‘out of whack’. As the series progresses, the score starts to get more and »

Monte Carlo TV Festival, which hosted the inaugural edition of the Content and Multimedia Experience confab in June, is on board to organize a second edition with an expanded scope.
The festival’s CEO Laurent Puons told Variety that his team will likely be introducing workshops to highlight innovation for content creators.
“Next year, we will also be seeing more integration of the series, content, experiences and trends discussed in the Cme featured throughout the festival programming, bringing them to reality for the public (screenings, meet and greets, etc.),” said Puons.
While the first edition wasn’t quite packed, the Cme program nevertheless drew major players such as Jens Richter, FremantleMedia International CEO, and Christophe Riandee, Gaumont’s vice CEO, as well as wide-ranging media industry execs such as Alison Norrington, CEO of Story Central; Rebecca Denton, digital content exec producer; Jody Smith, commissioning editor of Channel 4’s multiplatform and online video; Jeff Pope, »

“Crosshair,” which comprises 13 one-hour episodes and unfolds across Europe, follows John, former CIA assassin turned freelance sniper, who drifts into a mid-life crisis, after discovering he has a teenage daughter and finding out his partner tried to kill him. Throughout the series, John tries to untangle a large conspiracy while having to protect his career status and life.

Cinelinx had the opportunity to speak with Charlie Clouser, formerly of Nine Inch Nails, about his score for the new TV series Wayward Pines. Join us as we get an exclusive in-depth look at the techniques and inspiration behind the music for this hit new show.
Charlie Clouser is a multi-instrumentalist composer, musician, producer, programmer and remix artist who has worked with some of the seminal recording artists of the last twenty years. Charlie came into prominence as a member of Nine Inch Nails from 1994-2000. Before joining the band as keyboardist/programmer, he’d already built a following with his extreme synth work and remixes for Prong, Marilyn Manson, White Zombie, and others. Charlie’s first film scoring effort, Saw, became an instant cult classic. His scores for the subsequent Saw series continue to define the films. Raw, grinding, propulsive, punctuated by incredible layers of sound and energy, they »

Even after the apocalypse strikes, Los Angeles will still need Uber drivers, and a recent web series provides a look at what ride sharing will look like in the post-apocalypse. Veteran actor Willie Garson leads Towncar Willie, in which he ferries celebrity passangers across a hellish landscape to the airport.
Towncar Willie is actually a companion for a separate web series called Whole Day Down, which made it onto our radar three years ago. In that series, Garson co-stars alongside Patrick Breen as a down-on-his-luck gallery owner. An explosion at the end of the first season turns Los Angeles into rubble, and that event sets the stage for Towncar Willie, which follows Garson's day job as an Uber driver.

Warning: This post contains spoilers from Forever‘s Season 1 finale.
Forever creator Matt Miller has done his part. He’s made a formal proposal to the network. He’s rallied the fans on social media. And now he’s waiting — like the rest of us — to see if his procedural-with-a-supernatural-twist will make like its protagonist and prove unkillable (at least for another season).
“We went and pitched our Season 2, what that would be, to ABC,” he tells TVLine. “It went great, and they were really pleased. They’ve been very supportive of the creative of the show all season long. »
“I shudder to think of it at the moment,” Gruffudd said, laughing as he considered the notion of his character’s immortality becoming public. “The beauty of it is, the audience knows the secret and nobody else does, apart from Abe.” (And, of course, Adam.) “I love the dynamic and the tension that’s always in the air.”

David Krumholtz, that nice Jewish boy from Numb3rs, is getting his own IFC comedy, the network announced this week. Gigi’s Bucket List will star Krumholtz as a 76-year-old bubbe whose sense of adventure is reignited after inheriting a mysterious fortune from her late husband. Krumholtz first unveiled the Gigi character in a series of weather forecasts on the comedy website WeatherFrom, but he's apparently been doing the bit — reportedly inspired by his own grandma — at parties for years. There's hope for everyone! »

While David Krumholtz’s most prominent television role to date has been in the CBS show Numb3rs, the performer has also displayed an adeptness in comedic roles, from movies such as Superbad to guest appearances on Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 and The League, as well as a leading role in the short-lived sitcom Partners. Krumholtz’s next project will see him dive into comedic waters once again, as IFC has given a straight-to-series order for his new show, titled Gigi’s Bucket List.
The first season will consist of eight episodes, each episode being half an hour long, and will make its premiere on IFC later in the year. Krumholtz is slated to play the titular character, a 76 year old woman named Gertrude Rotblum, aka Gigi, who comes across a secret stash of millions and decides to use it to gain experiences she missedo out on previously. »
