Time Travel on TV Today, Ranked From Least to Most Tricky

Time Travel on TV Today, Ranked From Least to Most Tricky
Time is not on our side, especially in the era of “peak TV.” Perhaps this is why networks are hopping onto the time travel bandwagon. At this year’s network upfront presentations in May, four of the five broadcast networks plugged shows that revolved around a time travel element at their core.

Taking journeys through the fourth dimension is a concept that has appeared in fiction since the late 19th century, popularized by H.G. Wells’ novel “The Time Machine.” The continued appeal of time travel boils down to wish fulfillment: the desire to visit other eras like a tourist, the yearning to relive or change the past, the curiosity about the future and the ability to squeeze more experiences into our ephemeral lives.

Although Stephen Hawking and Carl Sagan disagree on whether time travel will someday be possible based on our apparent lack of visitors from the future, that hasn

Viola Davis Discusses the Challenges of Starring in a TV Show: "People Have to Like You" and "Think You're Pretty"

Viola Davis Discusses the Challenges of Starring in a TV Show:
Viola Davis is no stranger to television, having appeared in episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Traveler and United States of Tara. It wasn't until she was cast as the lead in ABC's How to Get Away With Murder, however, that the 49-year-old actress began to receive the acclaim she deserved. Davis had worked with some of the biggest directors and actors in Hollywood on stage and screen, but many times, she felt marginalized as a nonwhite actor in film. When Shonda Rhimes and Peter Norwalk came calling, the star jumped at the chance to play a mysterious law professor named Annalise Keating. "There was absolutely no precedent for it. I had never seen a 49-year-old, dark-skinned woman who is...

Cinemax Recruits Prometheus Actor To Soldier On In Quarry Pilot

Cinemax just recruited a Marine sniper. Okay, so Prometheus actor Logan Marshall-Green isn’t really a soldier, but he’ll play one on TV. The network chose him to star in their new drama pilot titled Quarry.

The pilot is based upon a Max Allan Collins’ book, which follows a Marine sniper who returns home from Vietnam in 1973 to become disillusioned by the America he finds. It isn’t the one he left behind and it isn’t kind to him. “Combat-hardened and disillusioned, he’s recruited into a network of contract killers and corruption spanning the length of the Mississippi River,” reported THR. I told you it was a drama, and what a drama, but I see exciting thriller elements here as well.

If you are thinking that the title is weird, don’t. A quarry holds rocks and any member of the military can tell you there are

Tron 3 - Disney Moving Forward With New Writer

Earlier this year it was rumored that a sequel to 2010's Tron: Legacy hinged on the performance of Disney Xd's Tron: Uprising. It looks like Disney was pleased with the response to the animated prequel series which boasts visuals just as rich as its live-action counterpart. THR reports that Disney is moving forward on the untitled Tron: Legacy sequel and is currently looking to hire Eragon scribe Jesse Wigutow to pen the next draft of the script. Traveler series writer David Digilio drafted the latest script. Disney must be pleased with Wigutow's work on their forthcoming projects, Peter and the Starcatchers; and Parallel.

I'm sure there wasn't much nail biting going on from director Joseph Kosinski and Legacy screenwriters Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz as they've been quietly developing the third installment of Tron while juggling other projects this past year -- with Kosinski shooting Oblivion and Kitsis and Horowitz
