Daniel Zelman on Netflix’s Bloodline and Darkness on Television

4 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Recently on a day when I was not feeling particularly well I watched the entire first season of Bloodline, the Netflix drama created by Daniel Zelman and Todd and Glenn Kessler. The show feels quite different from their previous collaboration, Damages. I love the slower pace and, additionally, Bloodline appeals to my fascination with families — the relationships between siblings and parents, and the impossibility of breaking from one’s familial role. Opening with family members convening for a celebration, Bloodline is set in the Florida Keys, and it has an impressive cast that includes Kyle Chandler, Sissy Spacek, Sam Shephard […] »

Ryan Phillippe Wanted As Marvel’s ‘Iron Fist’?

29 April 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Brooding heartthrob Ryan Phillippe has been ploughing a quiet furrow in recent years. Perhaps best-known for his movie roles in Cruel Intentions and Gosford Park, it’s been a while since he made a splash on the big screen. However, small screen-wise he’s appeared in Damages and now Secrets & Lies, and if Marvel have their way he could be heading for Netflix.

He is reportedly in the frame to play comic book legend Danny Rand/Iron Fist, the missing piece of the Defenders story arc that’s being built towards via Daredevil, Aka Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter and Mike Colter are all shooting in these roles, and it’s thought Phillippe could make them a quartet in time for the forthcoming team-up miniseries.

While he has just taken to Twitter to deny the rumours…

I have no real marvel news other than an upcoming meeting. »

Does Marvel Want Ryan Phillippe For Iron Fist?

29 April 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Actor Ryan Phillippe (Damages, The Lincoln Lawyer) appeared on the Howard Stern show this morning,and announced that he’s currently in talks with Marvel Studios for a role in one of their Netflix series. While Phillippe didn’t open up about what role that could be, all it takes is one look at the streaming service’s upcoming lineup of Marvel shows to jump start the speculation engine and get the rumor mill turning.

We’ve already seen our Daredevil in Charlie Cox, and we know that Krysten Ritter and Mike Colter will be taking on the roles of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, respectively. So, the one major role left to cast for the upcoming Defenders shows is that of Daniel Rand, a.k.a. Iron Fist. Could Phillippe be taking on the role of the master martial artist-turned super hero? It definitely seems like it.

Rose Byrne on Transitioning to Comedy and Why 'Damages' Should Be Considered Groundbreaking TV

24 April 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Rose Byrne on Doing More Comedies, Her Run on 'Damages,' and Why She Has Yet to See 'The Conjuring' After earning a pair of Golden Globe and Emmy nominations for her work in the acclaimed legal thriller "Damages," it'd be more than reasonable to assume that Rose Byrne's future was in drama. But in the years since she wrapped production on the series in 2011, Byrne has emerged as one of the most ubiquitous and impactful presences in American comedy film. From scene-stealing turns in "Bridesmaids" and "Get Him to the Greek" to leading roles in "Neighbors" and the upcoming "Spy," the Australian-born actress has drawn the attention of viewers and critics alike for her wicked comic edge. She's the kind of artist who's always seeking out a new challenge — her shift from drama to comedy hardly covers the new ground she's been exploring. Last fall, »

The Whispers First Look: That's Not a Firefly Making the Child Glow, Is It?

The poster for ABC’s summer thriller The Whispers is rated TV-cc — and that stands for Creepy Child.

Ok, Ok, the kid is cute enough, but it’s the eerie glowing hands — and that “Not all imaginary friends are imaginary” tagline — that’s making us a little uneasy.

Netflix's "Bloodline": The Up and Downsides to a Slow Burn

1 April 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Kyle Chandler and Ben Mendelsohn in "Bloodline"Photo: Netflix Note: This will spoil all of season one of "Bloodline". Don't say you haven't been warned. A slow burn approach to building tension can be very effective. By gradually building to the climax, it can make the payoff so much more rewarding if it justifies the time it took to get there. On the other hand, if the gradual build isn't handled correctly, the story can feel like it is spinning its wheels and stalling. It is a tricky balance to strike, and creators Todd A. Kessler, Glen Kessler, and Daniel Zelman, who also created the show "Damages", take this approach with their latest show "Bloodline". The result showcases both the great sides and the frustrating sides to a slow burn. The latest Netflix drama focuses on the Rayburn family, led by Sam Shepard and Sissy Spacek, who run a hotel in the Florida Keys. »

Netflix Wastes No Time Renewing ‘Bloodline’ For Season Two

1 April 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

As an April Fools' Day joke, Bloodline actress Linda Cardellini has appeared in a PSA imploring viewers to shower regularly. That, however, is not the only bit of news concerning Netflix's new drama series. In addition, the streaming service has announced it will bring back its dark family drama for a second season.

The news of Bloodline's renewal should come as no surprise, since Netflix has given at least two seasons to all of the original comedy and drama programs it has distributed. In this particular case, Bloodline is also riding some strong critical momentum. Most of its early reviews have been positive, and the first season has an average rating of 75 on Metacritic.

Bloodline centers around a South Florida family, with Kyle Chandler taking the lead as one of four adult children. Across the first season's 13 episodes, a series of well-paced twists reveal crucial information about the family. »

'Bloodline' Creators Talk Twists & Why They Don't Care About Netflix Ratings

24 March 2015 7:39 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Bloodline" premiered on Netflix last weekend, and — as far as anyone outside the streaming giant's office headquarters in Los Gatos, CA knows — no one watched it. Or 55 million people watched it. Most likely it's somewhere in between, but because Netflix refuses to relinquish their viewing statistics, not even the creators of the series know how many people are watching it.  That's just fine with Daniel Zelman, one of three co-creators of "Bloodline," all of whom argue for their employer's privacy to varying extremes. Glenn and Todd A. Kessler also don't feel the need to see numbers, in part because knowing whether their first show — the FX drama "Damages" — was succeeding or failing in the ratings every week became a distraction. In a sit-down interview with Indiewire, the three men who make up the oft-praised Kzk Productions opened up about how they landed at Netflix, what they learned about twists from »

Bloodline Recap: Black Sheep

20 March 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If you're like me, one of the reasons you're pumped about this show is that Kyle Chandler is coming back to dramatic television — so what if he's just playing a doughier Coach Taylor, sans headset? Great, we'll take him! Another reason is this show comes from the same people — Glenn Kessler, Todd A. Kessler, and Daniel Zelman — who created Damages, and that was a show you maybe really enjoyed for a couple seasons. Also good news, the cast is rounded out with star-studded talent: Sissy Spacek, Ben Mendelsohn, Sam Shepard, and Chloë Sevigny, to name a few. What are we waiting for? Let's meet the Rayburns!As the camera pans over the Florida Keys, a dour Chandler kicks off the series with a pessimistic monologue, wasting no time telling us terrible things are going to happen in a beautiful place to beautiful people.
