Sundance exec named BBC America boss

2 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

BBC America has appointed Sundance TV chief Sarah Barnett as president and general manager, one month after Sundance parent firm AMC Networks acquired a stake in the Us cable network.

Barnett, who was most recently president and general manager of Sundance TV, will replace Perry Simon.

She will continue to report to Ed Carroll, chief operating officer of AMC Networks, which now operates BBC America as a joint venture with BBC Worldwide.

AMC Networks, the group behind Breaking Bad and Mad Men, acquired a 49.9% stake in BBC America in October for £125m.

Barnett joined Sundance TV from BBC America, where she was vice president of on-air. Before joining Sundance, she worked for the BBC in London for 12 years, directing and producing a number of shows across television and radio.

Carroll said that Barnett’s “appetite for creative risk taking” would be well suited for the role.

Stamos was to play the billionaire husband of a character played by Natalie Zea (The Following). The cast also included Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), Boris Kodjoe (Undercovers), Luke Mitchell (The Tomorrow People) and Michael Landes (Save Me).

‘Better Call Saul’ Makes Its Case In February

23 November 2014 3:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

More highly anticipated than the rodent guest speaker at a cat convention, broadcaster AMC have revealed the premiere date for Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul. February 8th will see Bob Odenkirk’s super-slippery Saul Goodman ply his trade at the wrong end of the justice spectrum. Viewers only have to wait 24 hours for the next episode before the show sets out its stall on Monday nights. But is Saul going to be Saul, or Jimmy McGill, the previous identity shown in publicity material? Charlie Collier (AMC President) has revealed how it’s going to play out:

We’re going to introduce Jimmy McGill to the world. Known to Breaking Bad fans as Saul Goodman, viewers will soon discover Saul wasn’t always Albuquerque’s top criminal (criminal) lawyer.

While some element of flashing back and forth has been mentioned, this is confirmation the prequel is going to go right back to Goodman’s beginnings. »

‘The Breaking Bad Cookbook’ Review

22 November 2014 10:10 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Chris Mitchell | Published by John Blake Publishing | Format: Hardback, 208pp

For five seasons, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman were undisputedly the greatest cooks in North America. From their humble origins as part-timers in a cramped (and decidedly unreliable) Rv to the halcyon days in a state-of-the-art ‘kitchen’, the duo prospered, with competitors falling (sometimes explosively) by the wayside. Customers paid top dollar for their product. Connoisseurs came from all over the continent, and even as far afield as Europe, to sample their distinctive blue ice. The partners may have had their detractors but, without a doubt, they were the best of the best.

It’s not often that TV shows, especially hard-hitting crime dramas from Us cable television, spawn cook books but when that’s what the show is about – cooking, albeit meth not food – it’s not that far of a creative leap. Especially when said cookbook »

Casting Heats Up For Jessica Jones And Luke Cage

22 November 2014 8:42 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The four-series deal between Marvel and Netflix is slowly edging closer to screens, with new names added to the casting shortlists for Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. With the first of the four shows – Daredevil – already in production, Jones, Cage and Iron Fist are still to be cast, before the four characters come together for a Defenders mini-series.

As the second of the four series, Jessica Jones will be written and executive produced by Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight), and features the titular character who essentially originated in the story of Peter Parker/Spider-Man. She was present when he was bitten by the radioactive spider, and was soon exposed to radiation herself in a car crash that killed her entire family. Adopted by the Jones family, she soon discovered she had superpowers. Eventually hanging up her superhero cape, she founded a private detective agency, through which she is continually, and reluctantly, drawn back into the superhero life. »

Why the Y? The actress' son's name is Yoby.While it's only been three and a half years since the series ended its run, the cast members of "Friday Night Lights" have gone on to some pretty incredible projects.From Connie's gig on "Nashville" to other stars' roles in projects like "Fantastic Four," "Orange Is the New Black »

Week in Review: Details revealed about Spike Lee’s Kickstarter movie

21 November 2014 9:33 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Back in August 2013, Spike Lee launched plans for his newest movie on Kickstarter, causing a big hullabaloo in the process. People questioned whether an established director like him was taking money away from other independent filmmakers and projects, even though he clarified that more people came to Kickstarter who had never heard of the service. He added that this was the new order, the new way indie filmmakers like himself got the word out.

Lee did end up earning the funding for his film, just over $1.4 million from over 6,000 backers, and now that film has finally arrived. The movie is Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, a reimagining of a cult horror classic from 1973 Ganja & Hess. Indiewire has details that the film will be released in theaters and VOD, presumably with many perks for Kickstarter backers, on February 13, 2015. This follows its premiere at the American Black Film Festival back in June, »

"...set six years before 'Saul Goodman' meets 'Walter White', 'Jimmy McGill' is a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny...

"Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is 'Mike Ehrmantraut' (Jonathan Banks). The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts 'criminal' in 'Criminal lawyer'..."

"He seems to be a pretty happy-go-lucky guy, and that makes him everything that 'Walter White' is not, " said creator Vince Gilliagn about Saul Goodman, "...and that also makes for tricky drama. When I say drama, even in a comedy, you want drama, you want tension and conflict, and a character that at heart seems at peace with himself is intrinsically undramatic...So we’ve been thinking »
