Wgn America is branching out into the world of scripted television and taking viewers back to 17th century Massachusetts in the new drama, Salem. In this re-imagined version of the Salem Witch Trials, a dark period in American history has now become a seductive opportunity for the network to make its mark in the supernatural genre.
Salem, starring Nikita’s Shane West, explores a bold new world where witches run the show. According to creator Brannon Braga, who’s also serving as an executive producer on the project, the premise is based on the idea that not only were witches real, but they were working in cahoots with their persecutors during the trials for reasons that will become clear later on.
Although there’s been a slight backlash from TV critics concerning the possible re-writing of history, executive producer Adam Simon defends the show, stating that there was a widespread »

Costume designer Joan Bergin has three Emmys (and one nomination) neatly tucked in her belt for her pitch perfect period costumes on Michael Hirst’s hit Showtime series, The Tudors, (2008-2011) which focused on the life, times -- and wives -- of King Henry Xiii. And now she’s (hopefully) poised for another Emmy nod for her work on Hirst’s latest project, Vikings, History Channel’s first scripted series, currently in its second season. The series spins the saga of Ragnar Lothbrok as he rises to rule all the Viking tribes. The show stars Australian actor Travis Fimmel as Lothbrok, Katheryn Winnick as his first

Natalie Dormer isn’t just on people’s minds because Game of Thrones is about to hit again, she’s the new everywhere girl. From The Tudors to the fairly awesome BBC series Silk, to a very cool, if thus far not huge, role on Game of Thrones, Dormer has now shown up with the role of all roles on Elementary, and was in Rush and The Counselor. If more GoT wasn’t enough, she’s coming up in Posh, the new film by the awesome Lone Sherfig, and she’ll be Cressida in both part of the upcoming Mockingjay films that finish out The Hunger Games films.
Not only is she in April’s GQ with a very cool photo shoot, which includes topless poses (which is why you’re here), but she’s also rocking a very hot punk hairstyle (which is somewhat hard to see in the shots below).

[This is a review for season 2, episode 3 of Vikings. There will be Spoilers.]
For three weeks now, Vikings has proven itself to be in a season of war. In this week’s episode, simply titled ‘Treachery,’ a war is brewing on foreign soil (Wessex), while back in Scandinavia, Rollo has been tasked to keep the women and children safe.
The newly cast Bjorn, played by The Hunger Games star Alexander Ludwig, will most likely be the main focus of many discussions surrounding ‘Treachery;’ however, writer Michael Hirst (The Tudors) seems more interested in contemplating the various moral choices our favorite characters make. In the classical sense, is there a hero, or heroine to be ...

As production begins on the new pilot Constantine - from executive producers Daniel Cerone & David S. Goyer and director Neil Marshall - NBC, Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment are today releasing the first official image of series star Matt Ryan in character as John Constantine.
Here's what executive producer David S. Goyer had to say about this new version of the popular character in a statement.
"I've been a fan of John Constantine since he was first introduced in 1985. This Constantine, envisioned by Neil Marshall and embodied by Matt Ryan, looks like he sprang directly from the comics' covers. Fans old and new are going to be in for a treat."
Constantine follows enigmatic and irreverent Liverpool con-man-turned-occult-detective John Constantine, who is reluctantly thrust into the role of defending our world against dark forces from beyond.
As previously announced, Matt Ryan has the lead as the titular blue-collar mage in NBC's new Constantine TV series. Now, here's our first look at him in costume, and it's a get-up that should be pleasingly familiar to anyone au fait with the DC/Vertigo Hellblazer (and Swamp Thing) comics in which the character originally lurked.Trenchcoat, tie, white shirt, blonde hair: it's practically a uniform, and damn close to the images (based on Sting, of all people) drawn by the likes of Rick Veitch, Steve Dillon, Glenn Fabry, Tim Bradstreet et al. The one thing that's missing is a cigarette, but there does seem to be some wispy smoke swirling around him from somewhere. As a notoriously duplicitous cove, maybe his pants are on fire.Ryan, who has prior credits in Torchwood and The Tudors, is a Welshman rather than a Liverpudlian, but while we can't yet hear his Constantine, »

Great news today, kids. In fact, two pieces of great news, both about the NBC pilot Constantine. As I continually warn, when I report about pilots it’s always with the concern that hopes are being raised only to be dashed; that the pilot gets made but never picked up.
Well the two pieces of great news are one and the same: NBC, Warner Bros. Television, and DC Entertainment have released the first look at Matt Ryan as Constantine. The fact that they are publicly talking about the pilot gives me great hope that the series will be picked up, and that is great news. The other great news is the exceptionally cool pic:

“Constatine” hails from David S. Goyer, Neil Marshall and Daniel Cerone. The trio boasts plenty of genre-fan cred through Goyer’s work on “The Dark Knight” series, Marshall’s time on “Game of Thrones” and Cerone’s stint on “Dexter.”
“I’ve been a fan of John Constantine since he was first introduced in 1985. This Constantine, envisioned by Neil Marshall and embodied by Matt Ryan, looks like he sprang directly from the comics’ covers. Fans old and new are going to be in for a treat,” Goyer said.

In “The Returned,” an 8-year-old American boy (Landon Gimenez) wakes up alone in a rice paddy »
- Erin Willard
ABC has been trying to hit on a lot of fronts lately, but nothing has been a more clear shot at fans of Lost than the upcoming Resurrection. The trailers don’t exactly give you that impression (see sizzle reel below), but they hint that it might be there, as does the general premise.
We watch as Jacob awakes in a rice field in China, clearly in unfamiliar territory. The case soon falls to Immigration agent J. Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps), who only knows that Jacob has made his way back to the United States, but hasn’t spoken a word since he was found. Though Martin is supposed to just drop Jacob off with Child Protective Services, he seems to be getting some information out of Jacob, and when Jacob confirms that he can find his way home, in Arcadia, Missouri, Martin takes him there.

[This is a review of Vikings season 2, episode 2. There will be Spoilers.]
There is a pattern emerging in the early stages of Vikings’ sophomore season. The pattern unflinchingly examines loyalty, honor, and what it means to “truly” love someone. All the power in Scandinavia is up for grabs, but who will emerge victorious?
The decision to jump ahead four years after last week’s premiere was a bold move on the part of creator/executive producer Michael Hirst (The Tudors). Lagertha and Bjorn’s presence was missed, yet the strong ensemble cast proved itself worthy by delivering a barrage of stellar performances. ‘Invasion’ may be the title of this week’s episode, however, ‘Allegiance’ would have been a more suitable description for what took place ...
