Things are starting to gear up for AMC's upcoming companion series to "The Walking Dead," as Deadline brings word that Academy Award winner Adam Davidson has been brought on to helm the pilot episode of the new series. Davidson won the Best Live Action Short Film Oscar back in 1991 for The Lunch Date and has gone on to direct countless episodes of television including "Lost," "Deadwood," "Dexter," "Rome," "True Blood," "Fringe," "Community," and even AMC's own "Hell on Wheels" and "Turn: Washington's Spies." »
Fighting the good fight takes a gnarly turn in the series premiere of Constantine, NBC’s new supernatural drama based on the DC Comic Hellblazer. After watching Friday night’s premiere, are you willing to stand with the title character against the forces of evil?
We want to hear your thoughts on the episode, but first, a brief recap:
We first meet John Constantine (Matt Ryan, The Tudors) as he’s willingly being prepped for electroshock therapy at a psychiatric treatment facility in England. “In my line of work, there are days you just need to forget,” he tells us via voiceover. »
AMC’s The Walking Dead companion series just locked a director for the pilot episode and he’s an Academy Award winner! Adam Davidson snagged the Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film back in 1991 for The Lunch Date and, ever since, he’s been racking up TV credits. He’s worked on a slew of shows including Lost, Deadwood, Dexter, True Blood, Fringe, Big Love, Masters of Sex and so many more. Davidson is expected to start shooting his Walking Dead companion series episode late this year. Hit the jump for more on the show and Davidson. It’s times like this that I wish I had paid closer attention to who’s directing what episode of my favorite TV shows, but sadly, I can’t remember what went down in Davidson’s episodes of Friday Night Lights, Hell on Wheels or Six Feet Under. However, he did just »

Facebook’s Oculus Rift is getting its first 3D virtual reality feature film in Banshee Chapter, an indie sci-fi horror executive produced by Star Trek‘s Zachary Quinto that’s hitting the next-gen virtual reality platform today – for free.
The low budget frightener, loosely based on H.P. Lovecraft’s From Beyond, tracks a journalist investigating the disappearance of her old college friend and his ties to a secret experimental drug. Silence of the Lambs‘ Ted Levine, Sleepy Hollow‘s Katia Winter and True Blood‘s Michael McMillian star for first time director Blair Erickson in the film produced by Sunchaser Entertainment’s Stephanie Riggs and Before the Door’s Corey Moosa and Sean Akers, and Christian Arnold-Beutel.
Banshee Chapter debuted last December on VOD to modest fanfare. But that was before Facebook bought Oculus Rift in a $2 billion deal, heralding it as the next big thing in social communications and entertainment. »

John Constantine‘s business cards read “Exorcist, Demonologist and Master of the Dark Arts” — and all three of those vocations get a workout in NBC’s new drama based on the popular DC Comics character.
After decades in the Hellblazer comics and one ill-fated run at the big screen, Constantine makes his TV debut Friday (10/9c). Welsh actor Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, The Tudors) plays the trenchcoated demon whisperer, a tortured con man who’d prefer to abandon his occult work but feels compelled to help those who need him most.

It may be more true in horror than in any other genre that certain subgenres ebb and flow in popularity over time. Vampires were hot in the mid-’90s when you had Interview with the Vampire, From Dusk Till Dawn, Blade and the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Then, vampires sat out of popular discourse for the next ten years or so, until the double whammy of Twilight and True Blood hitting in 2008, causing a tidal wave of vampiric fiction from the arty (Only Lovers Left Alive, Byzantium) to the schlocky (Dracula Untold, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter) that hasn’t slowed down since.
Witches are now in the middle of an uncertain period, neither in ebb or flow. When Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages was released in 1922, witchcraft and the occult were still deeply feared in modern society. In the decades that followed, interest waned and they became more »

(Cbr) Eli Roth has made just four feature films in the past 12 years, but one of them is already getting a remake of sorts. Deadline reports that "Cabin Fever," the director’s 2002 feature debut, will get a remake or, more accurately, a reshoot. Basically, director Travis Zariwny will use the same script Roth wrote with Randy Pearlstein for the new version. Roth is on board as producer for the film, which starts shooting this week in in Portland, Oregon. There cast includes Gage Golightly ("Teen Wolf"), Dustin Ingram ("True Blood"), Samuel Davis ("From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series"), Matthew Daddario ("Delivery Man") and Nadine Crocker ("Some Guy Who Kills People"). Zariwny helmed the sci-fi creeper "Scavengers" as well as "Intruder," which is supposed to come out this year. »

While HBO execs aren't tied to the ratings like regular commercial channels, they have to air programs that will keep viewers subscribed. Which of their shows will be cancelled or renewed? We'll have to wait and see.
Scripted HBO shows listed: Boardwalk Empire, Eastbound & Down, Game of Thrones, Girls, Hello Ladies, Jonah from Tonga, The Leftovers, Looking, The Newsroom, Silicon Valley, True Blood, True Detective, and Veep.
Last update: Most recent ratings for Boardwalk Empire added.
There's lots of data that HBO execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series. The ratings for initial airings don't play as large a role as they do on commercial stations but they are still an indication of how popular a show is. Here's an updated listing of HBO's recent/current primetime scripted shows. »
Charlie Cox (Stardust) was announced to play Daredevil on Marvel’s Netflix show of the same name a few months ago, and since then he has kept quiet about the project. We knew virtually nothing about the show prior to its panel at the New York Comic Con earlier this month where the cast spoke about working on the project [watch the panel here], and now Cox has divulged more information in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Check out what he had to say below…
“It’s great fun, but it also comes with a great deal of responsibility, I wasn’t really aware of how vast the comic book world was until I became part of the Marvel universe. I went to Comic Con last week, and it’s really important to a lot of people. It really is. I’m having a great time.”

Ryan Kwanten went shirtless while moving some furniture during a visit with his parents in Sydney, Australia, on Saturday. The True Blood hunk prepared for a day of lounging in the sun by rearranging a few chairs on the lawn, and naturally, his shirt just got in the way. Clearly, Ryan hasn't given up his workout routine since his role on the HBO show ended back in August; True Blood ended its seven-season run over the Summer, but not before Ryan's character Jason engaged in a supersteamy sex scene with Eric Northman, played by Alexander Skarsgard. Not long after the scene aired, we spotted Ryan flaunting his flawless physique on the beach in Malibu, CA, a moment that unsurprisingly landed him in the No. 4 spot of our 2014 Popsugar Shirtless Bracket. Keep reading to see why Ryan is welcome to help us out next time we move. »

The Good Wife, Season 6, Episode 5: “Shiny Objects”
Written by Keith Eisner
Directed by Frederick E. O. Toye
Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on CBS
One of the particular strengths of The Good Wife is its uncanny sense of series memory. With well over 100 episodes’ worth of long-standing character relationships, tertiary characters, and running gags to draw upon, it’s rare that a new episode comes down the pike that doesn’t reward long-time viewers, even if it’s just in a minute way. “Shiny Objects” is, on the surface, a prototypical latter-day Good Wife episode, in that it offers up a case of the week while keeping the season’s master plot humming along, but it also manages (for better and worse) to lean on several long-standing relationships and character beats to an unusual degree.

David Clarke, “a symbol of hope and courage?” That’s what the media’s calling him after Sunday’s Revenge, though it’s totally Ok if you still see him as the self-whipping, daughter-attacking, insane beard-having lunatic we’ve all grown to love.

Evan Rachel Wood did not enjoy her first experience shooting a Vanity Fair cover. After one of her Twitter followers posted a throwback pic of Wood from the magazine's 2003 cover, the True Blood actress responded with a series of tweets criticizing the issue's shoot. "I was almost in tears after this shoot," wrote Wood, who was 15 when she posed for the magazine's "Young Hollywood" issue. The actress explained that she didn't feel comfortable in the dress that was chosen for her but was told there wasn't time to tailor it. Read more Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch Make

Edward Norton's fantastic 2006 film The Illusionist is the latest movie to be added to the list of TV series adaptations. I really liked this movie, especially for the fact that it centered on magic, which is something I'm completely fascinated with. On top of that it had an intriguing story.
The movie was written and directed by Neil Burger, and it's set in 1889 Vienna. The story centers around a magician named Eisenheim (Norton), who is competing with the Crown Prince for the love of a noble woman (Jessica Biel). At the same time he's being chased and investigated by the chief of police (Paul Giamatti), who is suspicious of his talents.
The series is being written by Mark Hudis (True Blood), and according to Deadline, the new adaptation will take place in turn of the century New York. "It centers on a renowned illusionist who returns home from a »

One of the highlights of the original series was Gary (Martin Clunes) and Tony's (Neil Morrissey) quest to find a new pub after The Crown gets a revamp. Gary's system of ranking their locals with different categories is a great tool for real-life pub crawls after moving somewhere new. Try it!
With this in mind, we pondered which pubs from TV history would rank well using a system similar to Gary's? We've chosen just a handful of famous watering holes in order to find the best one. The only rule is that they need to serve alcoholic drinks, so Central Perk doesn't count.
