FX Passes On Paul Giamatti’s Drama Pilot Hoke

10 June 2014 6:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It has been a very interesting time for the FX Network, hasn’t it? Veteran dramas Justified and Sons Of Anarchy have continued to thrive over the years, with the latter show approaching its seventh season. Meanwhile, other series such as The Americans, Louie and Archer are genuine critical success stories, with The Americans receiving high praise for its latest season. The cable network does not look to be slowing down anytime soon, either, as the well-received Fargo wraps up its debut season and upcoming shows like The Strain and Tyrant are getting some pretty solid buzz as well. Unfortunately, there is one promising TV drama pilot that FX has decided to move on from.

That drama pilot is Hoke, which starred Paul Giamatti as Hoke Moseley, a hardboiled and “possibly insane” homicide detective living in the world of pre-chic Miami during the early-1980s. The show was to be »

Premiere of ‘The Sixties’ Brings Younger Viewers to CNN

30 May 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The premiere of 12-part series “The Sixties” provided CNN with a much-needed primetime ratings jolt when it premiered Thursday, making the cabler the top-rated news network for the hour in the industry’s key demo.

According to fast national data from Nielsen, “When Television Came of Age,” the first of the 10-part “The Sixties,” averaged 284,000 adults 25-54 in the 9 o’clock hour — narrowly ahead of Fox News (273,000) and comfortably ahead of MSNBC (115,000).

CNN had aired two segments of its “Sixties” series previously, though those were telecast during times of higher-viewing levels and were timed to 50-year anniversaries. The segment on the JFK assassination averaged 508,000 adults 25-54 in November, and “The British Invasion” drew 305,000 in adults 25-54; both will be part of the current 12-part series.

In total viewers, Thursday’s “The Sixties” (1.390 million) ranked second among newsies, behind Fox News (1.919 million) and ahead of MSNBC (723,000).

Colin Callender‘s first producing effort, a nine-hour TV adaptation of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s stage production of The Life And Adventures Of Nicholas Nickleby launched UK’s Channel 4 and won him his first Emmy in 1983.

6 March 2014 6:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In the season 2 premiere, Amy finds out that she might have an Std and prays hard to God that it isn’t so. When the Supreme Being does appear, he’s not entirely thrilled with this self-absorbed soul. Let us also mention that he is portrayed by… Oscar-nominated actor Paul Giamatti. “We thought, ‘Who would be the funniest person to play God? »

The play concerns a struggling playwright (McGregor) who embarks on an affair with the luminous Annie (Gyllenhaal) and both parties, already married, end up questioning the consequences of their actions and whether Henry’s play, already about divorce, is informing their actual lives.

Downton Abbey returns this Sunday (PBS, 9/8c) with Lady Mary still in mourning for her husband, six months after Matthew’s untimely death.

Plus, the upcoming Christmas special promises to be “more optimistic” than last year’s bloody affair, says star Michelle Dockery.
