On that date, both the Sneaky Pete and Casanova pilots will be available to all Amazon Prime Instant Video subscribers in the U.S., UK, and Germany. Soon afterwards, the pilots will be joined by others in Amazon’s recent round of its pilot program. Prime users will then be able to vote on their favorite pilots, which Amazon will greenlight as full series orders.
Sneaky Pete, which Amazon was reportedly courting back in June 2015, comes from executive producers Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and David Shore (House M.D.). The Amazon original series’ story centers around a released-from-prison conman, played by Giovanni Ribisi, who takes his old cellmate Pete’s identity and gets sucked into his family’s bail bond business. »

MTV today announced that it has picked up its hit series Scream with Dimension Television for a second season. More than 21 million viewers have tuned in to the debut season of Scream on-air and the series has generated another 7.9 million streams across platforms. Additionally, Scream has averaged 60% increases in L+3 over L+Sd ratings week to week. Here's what MTV Executive Vice President of Series Development and Head of Scripted Programming, Mina Lefevre had to say in a statement.
"It has been a wonderful experience working with Bob Weinstein and his team who are such connoisseurs of this genre and we are thrilled by how our viewers have responded to the reinvention of Scream. We look forward to another season filled with suspense, horror and more twists and turns."
The horror TV series is set in the sleepy town of Lakewood, where a gruesome murder sets off a chain of horrific events. »
Egoyan’s thriller follows Zev (Plummer) on a cross-continent road trip after he discovers that the Nazi who murdered his family over seventy years ago is still alive. Martin Landau, who won the Oscar for his portrayal of Bela Lugosiin Ed Wood, and “Breaking Bad”’s Dean Norris also star.
It looks like the eighty-five-year-old Order of Canada recipient might be hitting the festival circuit this year before Remember’s October 23 release. The film has been picked up as a Gala presentation at the Toronto International Film Festival, and will enjoy its world premiere in competition at Venice.

Wanna own a pricey piece of Breaking Bad memorabilia? Jesse Pinkman's trap house is now on the market: According to a listing, the house that Jesse and Walt temporarily used for their meth lab (and murders) can now be yours for a cool $1.6 million. If you'll recall, this is the same house whose upstairs floor Jesse melted through when he attempted to disintegrate Krazy 8's cousin with acid. It's also where Jesse threw his many, many ragers. Unfortunately, the listing notes that the basement meth lab isn't included. (Bummer.) But if you're willing to move to Albuquerque and deal with the Breaking Bad tourists (hey, at least they won't throw pizza on your roof), make an offer! »

Welcome to the ninth installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the ninth episode, “Boca," coming up just as soon as you lie like I play the French horn... "I didn't hurt nobody." -Tony In the grand scheme of "Sopranos" season 1, the most important part of "Boca" takes place on a Jersey golf course, where Uncle Junior and Tony »

Following the news that director Jay Roach’s upcoming biopic Trumbo is set to receive its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, two new images have arrived online featuring Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) as screenwriter Dalton Trumbo alongside Diane Lane (Man of Steel) and Helen Mirren (The Queen)…
The successful career of 1940s screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) comes to a crushing end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political beliefs. Trumbo tells the story of his fight against the U.S. government and studio bosses in a war over words and freedom, which entangled everyone in Hollywood from Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.

Though AMC has had some popular scripted series that have run for years, many others have been cancelled after just one season. How are the current crop of shows doing? Which will be cancelled or renewed? We'll have to wait and see.
There's lots of data that AMC execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are the major ingredient. Here's an updated listing of all of their recent/current primetime scripted shows.

While Arrow has steadily built a reliable audience over its first three seasons, every show that heads into a fourth year needs a bit of a shake up. It is a tried and tested strategy, and can be seen in many of the biggest dramatic successes of the modern era – including The X Files, ER, The Office, Friday Night Lights, Mad Men, and even Breaking Bad. These are shake ups that apply to both the structure and narrative of the show, and serve to refocus and redirect the overall plot. It is always interesting to see how a series team will approach these shake ups, and Arrow is no exception. What is clear now is that, for this show, the shake up will come in the form of Damien Darhk, played by actor Neal McDonough (Justified).

Existential angst, meditations on happiness, a deeply flawed protagonist... BoJack Horseman fills the void left behind by Mad Men...
Contains spoilers for BoJack Horseman season 2.
On some level, relatability is essential to good storytelling. We need to understand what characters feel in order to care about what happens to them, and that is far more potent if we can see ourselves in their plight. But so many of the best shows of television are only relatable in the abstract. We may feel the wounded pride at the heart of Breaking Bad, the masculine insecurity that fuels the characters in True Detective and anybody who has ever been in an emotionally abusive relationship is certain to empathise with a lot of what goes on in Hannibal, but the circumstances of those shows are so far removed from the lives of most of us and the parts we relate to are ultimately »
If you think you're a big fan of "Breaking Bad," you've got nothing on the people who work at Walter's Coffee Roastery in Istanbul. They've themed their coffee shop after the acclaimed AMC drama down to the last detail.
They roast their beans in a lab reminiscent of the one that Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) worked in. They wear bright yellow suits just like the duo did. They even have "blue meth" cupcakes!

Netflix used to be the home of films of varying quality, ranging from classic to cult to just plain awful, and the place to catch-up on all the shows you’re supposed to have seen but never got around to.
While it is still that, and you can lose yourself for hours binging on Breaking Bad, the streaming service has over the past couple of years made a big push to produce more original content.
The likes of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black are the two biggest success stories, earning critical acclaim and challenging network and cable shows when it comes to awards season. The Netflix model, dumping all episodes onto its website at once for immediate mass consumption, has totally changed the way people watch TV.
2015 has seen that trend continue, with a string of hit new shows including Sense8, from creators »

Like Valyrian steel being forged with spells, Game of Thrones, since its debut in 2011, has found its own magic to forge a reputation as one of the best shows on TV, cementing its place at the top of this so-called golden age of television alongside Breaking Bad.
The writing, acting, and directing are all first-class, but what sets it apart from a lot of other shows is just how far it’s willing to go. There’s almost nothing off limits, no character it won’t kill, no one you can really trust, and the scale and spectacle is astonishing for a TV series.
It has introduced us to a huge number of characters, but then, almost exactly around the time you find the one you like best, they’ll be brutally murdered with unflinching detail. There’s been death, war, dragons, and White Walkers. Just when you think »

There’s good news for UK fans of the hardest-working local government department in Indiana, as the fourth season of Parks and Recreation is finally set to surface on Dave.
The series took an age to reach British shores, with BBC4 picking up the first seasons at the same time as the penultimate season was airing in the Us. But despite a top-drawer cast, with Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari and Jurassic World star Chris Pratt playing some of the most enjoyable characters in modern sitcom history in a pitch-perfect caricature of small midwestern city life, the show hasn’t really managed to grab the British audience it deserves.

“The Royals” are back to reign again.
In the first footage from season two, exclusively revealed by Variety, Cyrus (Jake Maskall) is now king, following the death of King Simon (Vincent Regan) at the end of the first season, and the sex, scandals and drugs are at an all-time high.
“I have the power, which is great,” Maskall says in the video (watch above). However, Prince Liam (William Moseley) is ready to avenge his father’s death. “Whatever it costs, no one is going to stand in his way,” Moseley says in the promo.
Princess Eleanor (Alexandra Park) is seen hooking up with someone, while Jasper (Tom Austen) peers over, Queen Helena stumbles across a body — which may or may not be dead, or perhaps passed out drunk — and her mother (Dame Joan Collins) is back. So is Ophelia (Merritt Patterson), who’s embracing Liam in the first glimpse at the new episodes. »

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials has unveiled an intense new trailer.

The film series, of course, is adapted from the bestselling book trilogy of the same name, written by James Dashner. Following the release of The Scorch Trials, The Death Cure, which is the final installment in the franchise, will hit theaters in 2017.
Last year’s The Maze Runner proved to be a huge hit at the box office. Although it didn’t post Hunger Games-size numbers, it more than made back it’s relatively small budget of $34 million, grossing over $340 million worldwide.
In this next chapter of the epic “Maze Runner” saga, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as Wckd. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, »
