If you’ve watched TV in the past 10 years, chances are you know Bear McCreary’s music. He’s become one of the most (if not the most) sought-after and prolific composers in television, ever since he came into his own writing the boundary-pushing score for the reimagined Battlestar Galactica series. He counts The Walking Dead, Outlander, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. among his credits. And this March theater-goers got to experience his music with a big screen presentation; he composed the chilling and thrilling score for J.J. Abrams’ 10 Cloverfield Lane. Today McCreary is juggling so many projects that he can’t count all his current TV shows and movies and video games — “I can’t even tell. I honestly don’t even know,” how many projects he’s in the midst of, he said during an interview at Cafe Laurent in Culver City, CA. The »

Syfy has been rolling the dice for the last couple of years on shows that aim to really turn up the sci-fi dial, and they’ve had a lot of luck. They took that to new levels last year with 12 Monkeys, and brought it home recently with The Magicians. Now they’re rounding out the schedule with something that isn’t quite as serious, but is just as wildly fun, Wynonna Earp, based on the Idw comics.
Wynonna (Melanie Scrofano) returns home to Purgatory, and if you think being descended from Wyatt Earp is something you have trouble leaving in the past, you don’t know the half of it. Wynonna has a secret, though it’s only “sort of secret,” and it involves the men her ancestor killed, and the fact that they don’t want to stay dead.
The Earp family is cursed… or something, and we’re »

The one that caught my eye out of the three was Stretch Armstrong. The iconic Hasbro brand Stretch Armstrong will make its television debut with an all-new look in an animated series.
