22 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

We have the first formal step toward series pickups made by a broadcast network this season. As I reported in my second Pilot Buzz roundup, NBC has given two drama pilots — Rise, from former Friday Night Lights showrunner Jason Katims and Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller; and For God and Country, from writer Dean Georgaris — permission to start making firm offers to writers. While not an outright pickup, such gesture by a network is almost always followed by a series… »

Exclusive: Dark/Web - Training Day’s Julie Benz Joins The Digital Horror Series

18 April 2017 7:26 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The internet may be a useful everyday tool that we take for granted, but at its core, it has the power to be devastating and deadly. In the darkest reaches of the web are the most horrifying of possibilities, and even if you’ve never been a victim yourself, chances are you’ve at least heard some terrifying stories involving the deep web.

The upcoming Lrm-exclusive digital series, Dark/Web, will be tackling some of those possibilities. The single story will be told over the course of the eight-part series, but embedded into each of the episodes are bite-sized “segments” that act as mini-anthologies within the show.

It’s been a good while since we’ve had an update from Dark/Web, but when it rains it pours!

Last week, Variety announced a whole laundry-list of great talent that boarded the series, including Robert Davi, Hayley Marie Norman (Chris Rock »

Movie Scenes that Pump You Up: Permian Hits the Field in “Friday Night Lights”

Friday Light Nights will always go down as one of my top 20 all-time favorite sports movies.  I think when you put it in the pantheon of greatest football movies ever you have to give it at least a top 7.  Peter Berg’s wonderfully directed film brought us as close to a “real life” look at high school sports in Texas as we could possibly get.   The movie eventually let to an extremely successful television series and gave us some insight into how far a town goes just to support its high school football team.

Why Connie Britton Was Never Meant to Play Olivia Pope on 'Scandal'

12 April 2017 4:51 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

While the Scandal cast is full of fascinating characters, those who the audience love and those who they love to hate, Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope is the undeniable star. Olivia makes Scandal what it is and she has become one of the most influential and inspiring women of color on TV. According to The Hollywood Reporter, if ABC had gotten their way, Olivia would have looked very different. ABC wanted Connie Britton of Friday Night Lights and Nashville fame to play Olivia, but Shonda Rhimes had different ideas.

Exclusive: Director Richard Kelly and Jake Gyllenhaal on Why ‘Donnie Darko’ Still Resonates Today

6 April 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On Oct. 26, 2001, Donnie Darko, director Richard Kelly’s sci-fi film about a despondent teenager (Jake Gyllenhaal in his second major film role) who befriends a giant bunny named Frank (James Duval), was released in theaters. The film told a cryptic narrative of a high schooler who is sent on an existential journey after he escapes death from a falling jet engine and learns that the world has just over 28 days before it ends. In that time, Donnie fends off the torments of being a teen -- a testy older sister (Gyllenhaal’s real-life older sister, Maggie), concerned parents (Mary McDonnell and Holmes Osborne), overbearing teachers (Beth Grant), mild flirtations with a new female student (Jena Malone) -- while trying to figure out, in some ways, how to save the world.

“That was a movie that was more about the psychological journey of adolescence and the confusion of it all,” Gyllenhaal tells Et. And while it »

The Best TV Shows Adapted From Books — IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best TV adaptation of a book/book series?

Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint), The Hollywood Reporter

Ok, I listed like 50 answers for last week’s Guest Stars question and I’m determined not to cheat this week! Kinda. The answer is “Friday Night Lights,” but I acknowledge that there are caveats, because the NBC TV series was based on the feature film, which was based on Buzz Bissinger’s book, so is the show based on a book or based on a movie? Well, because Peter Berg adapted both, I’m gonna say they’re both based on the book, because really the only continuity »

30 March 2017 1:18 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The first trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, has finally arrived!  See the debut trailer below!

Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot are about to embark on a whole new adventure that will include new enemies, new treasure, and a battle with the big bad himself, Thanos!  The trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series reveals just enough of the personality of our beloved misfits to get us intrigued!  See it for yourself!

The best line of the entire trailer had to be, "You can't possibly know that!" in response to Star-Lord's comment about being on the slowest elevator in the universe.  It also shows just how hard Telltale is working on creating a game reminiscent of the 2014 McU film, which is no easy task.
