Ten Best: Episodes of ‘Supernatural’

4 June 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The road so far …

It wasn’t exactly easy for genre television in 2005. Well, it’s really never been easy for genre television ever in the history of television, but in 2005, a deluge of genre shows premiered and almost all of them had fallen prey to the swift axe of the television gods by the next year. Start by thinking about television now. It’s a fruitful time for horror and science fiction and fantasy. There are a multitude of genre shows, running the gamut from The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, to True Blood and The Vampire Diaries. They’re all massive hits.

Now, think of all of the shows that premiered around that time in 2005. There was Surface, and that was cancelled after ten episodes by NBC. Invasion, a well-regarded show written by Shaun Cassidy (who created one of my favorite shows, American Gothic) and that was cancelled »

‘Blue Jasmine,’ ‘Hunger Games’ Among Costume Design Winners

22 February 2014 10:11 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Elaborate designs and covetable fashion were the focuses of the 2014 Costume Designers Guild Awards on February 22 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where winners included “Behind the Candelabra’s” Ellen Mirojnick, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’s” Trish Summerville, “House of Cards’” Tom Broecker, and “Blue Jasmine’s” Suzy Benzinger.

This is all a little ironic, Cdg president Salvador Perez joked his opening remarks.

“As costume designers, we take on the formidable task of dressing thousands of actors for a crowd scene or giving an actor 30 changes for one 30-minute episode of television,” the “Mindy Project” costume designer said. “Even though we can pull it off on a daily basis, let’s be honest. When it comes to dressing ourselves, the shoemakers’ children have no shoes. My tuxedo hem? Safety pins and Topstick.”

Grimm’s geekiest guest stars

20 February 2014 7:57 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Louisa Mellor 24 Feb 2014 - 07:00

From Amy Acker to James Frain, we celebrate Grimm’s habit of filling its supporting cast with geek favourites…

Read our look-back at the careers of Grimm co-creators David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf, here. 

When Grimm’s makers were looking for their Nick Burkhardt, the job was to cast someone with all the requirements of a leading man, but none of the distracting ‘wasn’t he in that other thing?’ baggage. In David Giuntoli, whose TV appearances had until then largely been confined to one-off roles in comedies and dramas including Grey’s Anatomy and Ghost Whisperer (the latter produced, not at all coincidentally, by Grimm co-creator Jim Kouf), they found their guy.

With Giuntoli in place, and a solid cast of regulars around him including Silas Weir Mitchell, Sasha Roiz, Russell Hornsby, Reggie Lee and Claire Coffee, it was time to fill in the guest roles. »

Amazon Orders Dramedy Pilot ‘Cocked’

6 February 2014 9:43 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

As Amazon Studios is releasing its current crop of 10 pilots today, the company already is working on the next batch. I’ve learned that Amazon has greenlighted hourlong dramedy pilot Cocked, from Lie To Me creator Samuel Baum. Written by Baum and Sam Shaw, the project centers on an estranged son who must return to work with his father and brother at his family’s gun manufacturing company after a corporate rival, run by their uncle, moves to take them over. Cocked joins three other pilots recently greenlighted by Amazon Studios: drama Hand Of God, written by Ben Watkins, directed by Marc Forster and starring Ron Perlman; comedy Cosmopolitan from The Last Days Of Disco filmmaker Whit Stillman; and drama Hysteria from Invasion creator Shaun Cassidy.

Amazon Close to Closing Deal on Pilots From Whit Stillman, Marc Forster

29 January 2014 3:25 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Following in the digital footsteps of Netflix, Hulu and a growing list of others, Amazon Studios is close to moving forward with three new pilots for original series, according to Deadline. One is a comedy from acclaimed film director Whit Stillman ("Metropolitan," "Damsels in Distress") called "Cosmopolitan" and the other two are dramas -- "Hysteria," from television producer and former teen idol Shaun Cassidy ("Invasion"), and "Hand of God," which is to be directed by Marc Forster ("World War Z") in his TV directing debut. Stillman will direct, write and executive produce "Cosmopolitan," which Deadline describes as a love story between a clique of expatriates living in Paris. "Hysteria" has a sci-fi premise and follows a female doctor who returns to her hometown in Texas to investigate an apparently technologically generated plague that is afflicting high school girls. In addition to these projects, Marc Foster (teaming up with "Burn Notice" executive producer Ben Watkins, »

Amazon Eyes Comedy Pilot From Whit Stillman, Drama From Shaun Cassidy

29 January 2014 1:37 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Amazon Studios continues to firm up its next batch of pilot orders. I hear the company is zeroing in on comedy Cosmopolitan from The Last Days Of Disco filmmaker Whit Stillman and drama Hysteria from Invasion creator Shaun Cassidy. Cosmopolitan, which Stillman wrote and will direct and executive produce, chronicles the loves and adventures of a group of young ex-patriates in Paris. Hysteria, produced by Alcon Entertainment, centers on a doctor who travels to her hometown of Houston to investigate an epidemic among high school girls that may be spreading through technology. The projects join drama Hand Of God, written by Ben Watkins, directed by Marc Forster and starring Ron Perlman, which also is nearing official pilot green light. Stillman is with UTA and Mosaic; Cassidy with CAA. »

Happy birthday, Evan Peters: The sexiest, most intense GIFs of the 'American Horror Story' star

20 January 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Evan Peters was a relative unknown before "American Horror Story" came along. He had done a handful of "One Tree Hill" episodes and was part of the short-lived ABC series "Invasion," but he really burst onto the scene in 2011 as Jessica Lange's on-screen son Tate Langdon on the FX horror drama.

On Monday (Jan. 20), we'd like to wish him a very happy 26th birthday and celebrate with his sexiest, most intense GIFs.

We also have our fingers crossed to see Peters in Season 4 of "American Horror Story," the details of which are starting to trickle out. He recently told io9 that the show's anthology format, changing characters, settings and time periods every season, is one of the things he likes the most about it.

"It's amazing, you get to see a different side of each [actor]," says Peters. "When you're acting with them, you see them change into somebody else »

Art Directors Guild And Costume Designers Guild Reveal Their Nominees

9 January 2014 11:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Art Directors Guild and the Costume Designers Guild have become the latest groups to announce their nominees for 2013. They may not be considered as big or as important as the Producers Guild, the Directors Guild, or the Writers Guild, but they are still a pretty good prognosticator for who will eventually take home the Oscar in their respective categories.

The Art Directors split their categories up into Period, Fantasy, and Contemporary Films (along with various TV categories), but the main one of importance here is the Period, where we find the more fanciful, eye-catching designs. Here, we find what was mostly expected: American Hustle, The Great Gatsby, Inside Llewyn Davis, Saving Mr. Banks, and 12 Years a Slave. If I had to venture a guess, I’d say that The Great Gatsby has this one in the bag. There were those who didn’t enjoy the film (I actually found »
