NBC Cancels ‘American Odyssey’ After One Season

30 June 2015 7:35 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

NBC has canceled “American Odyssey” after just one season, the network announced on Tuesday. The ax fell two days after the drama aired its season finale, earning just 0.4 among adults 18-49 following repeated disappointing ratings. The series followed Army Sgt. Odelle Ballard — played by British actress Anna Friel, best known for the short-lived “Pushing Daisies” — as she struggled to make it home after discovering a dangerous government secret during a raid in the west African Republic of Mali.

Bryan Fuller Talks ‘Hannibal’s Potential Resurrection On Amazon, ‘American Gods’ Conflicts & Surrendering To Destiny

25 June 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Almost from the moment the cancellation of Hannibal by NBC was made public on Monday, a campaign has been stridently waged to find the ratings-challenged show a new home. Out front in that campaign, both online and in the press, has been showrunner Bryan Fuller – who has seen other shows he's created like Fox's Wonderfalls and ABC's Pushing Daisies have their plug pulled. Amazon's exclusive arrangement to stream the previous two seasons and the current cycle of the… »

'Hannibal' producer: 'Maybe a 50/50 chance' of surviving cancellation

24 June 2015 8:44 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Hannibal" showrunner Bryan Fuller has been making the media rounds this evening to discuss the show's potential future in the wake of NBC's decision to not order a fourth season. Fuller's had beloved shows canceled out from under him before ("Wonderfalls," "Pushing Daisies"), but in this case, he has a distributor in Gaumont International with a desire to keep the show going, both here and abroad, and that has in the past shown a willingness to make creative deals to keep "Hannibal" in fine cuisine. (Earlier this week, EW reported that Gaumont had slashed this season's license fee to a piddling $185,000 per episode, or roughly the wig budget for "Peter Pan Live!" That's why the remaining 10 episodes will air: NBC has no more cost-effective alternative.) Both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety had published their Fuller interviews by the time Fuller and I spoke, and since his time was limited (like Will Graham, »

Lee Pace interview: 'Halt and Catch Fire is about people, not computers'

24 June 2015 5:18 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Guardians of the Galaxy star is back for a second series as Joe MacMillan, the ruthless visionary in AMC’s drama about the PC revolution. He explains why he likes playing bad guys – and how much his character is based on Steve Jobs

Ever since breaking through opposite Anna Friel in Bryan Fuller’s delirious, divisive TV fantasia Pushing Daisies, Lee Pace has been a familiar face at multiplexes. A role in the final Twilight film was followed by that of Thranduil, The Hobbit’s Elven King, and Guardians of the Galaxy’s supervillain, Ronan the Accuser. His latest project, Halt and Catch Fire (named after an early computer command requiring a restart), investigates the home-computing revolution in the early 1980s, with Pace’s Joe MacMillan the slippery svengali at its heart.

NBC cancels ‘Hannibal’, with the current season being its last

22 June 2015 3:14 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Among the more critically acclaimed network shows over the past few seasons has been the NBC series Hannibal. Developed by Pushing Daisies and Wonderfalls creator Bryan Fuller, the series, which follows the titular character of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, played by Mads Mikkelsen, began its third season roughly three weeks ago, to the excitement of many. Now news has emerged from NBC, however, that this ongoing third season will be the show’s last, as the network has cancelled the series, with the third season finale to serve as the series finale.

The decision appears to be an amicable one, as Fuller had this to say as part of NBC’s press release.

NBC has allowed us to craft a television series that no other broadcast network would have dared, and kept us on the air for three seasons despite Cancellation Bear Chow ratings and images that would have shredded the »

NBC Cancels Hannibal After Two Weeks of Series-Low Ratings; Producers Currently Looking for New Home

22 June 2015 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Adapted for television by Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) based on characters and elements from the novel Red Dragon by Thomas Harris, Hannibal is currently on its third season on NBC. FBI Agent Will Graham hunts the most notorious serial killers. What he doesn't know is his new partner is the most notorious serial killer of all.

While Lecter and Graham work to unravel the mystery and catch the killer, Dr. Lecter tests him every step of the way »

17 TV Shows That Should Have Gotten Movies Before Entourage

4 June 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Vincent Chase is back. That's, you know...fine and all, but let's be honest: Entourage was hardly top of our list when it came to TV shows we desperately wanted to see get movies.   Can we just talk about the likes of Pushing Daisies? Alias? Friday Night Lights? Lost? Freaks and Geeks? Well, we're gonna. There are 17 other shows (at least), and here we are officially putting this plea once again out into the universe....And maybe some of them will happen? 1. Friday Night Lights: Fnl started off as a movie before Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton made it into the iconic TV show so we already know it works on the big screen.

Star Trek: 47 geeky things about the Next Generation films

3 June 2015 3:02 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Star Trek: Generations through to Star Trek: Nemesis - here are 47 nerdy spots in the Next Generation films...

Since Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979, the Star Trek cinematic outings have proved to be a smorgasbord of references and famous actors (or those who would go on to be), and often had complex behind the scenes events that stopped some rather, ahem, fascinating moments making it to the final version. We found lots of nerdy spots in the first six films here.

This time out we look at the films featuring the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation and choose 47 factoids. Granted, there's a lot more than that of interest, but we've tried for ones that you might not be aware of.

Oh, and there are some major spoilers...

Where Are They Now? The Cast of Wonderfalls

27 May 2015 6:22 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

You can’t make a list these days of “Shows Cancelled Too Soon” without including Bryan Fuller, and it’s a true testament to his creativity that (at least) two of his shows would have to be included. Everyone always thinks about Pushing Daisies (same, though), but Fuller’s first network series Wonderfalls is as equally deserving of the praise of its spiritual sister. After debuting on Fox, Wonderfalls was praised by critics, but it never found an audience. It was also doomed from the beginning, as Fox decided to air the episodes out of order, as well. After four low-rated episodes, Fox cancelled the hourlong comedy, but a loyal fanbase has kept the series alive in their hearts, giving its 13-episode run a cult status through the DVD release. While it took a while for anyone to watch the series, it’s impossible to deny the effect that Wonderfalls »

Where Are They Now? The Cast of Pushing Daisies

26 May 2015 7:38 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’s crazy to think that it has been almost six years since the final pie was made at the Pie Hole on Pushing Daisies. From the incredible mind of Bryan Fuller, best known these days for his work on NBC’s HannibalPushing Daisies was a fantastical dramedy that aired on ABC for two (abbreviated) seasons from 2007-2009. Debatably one of the major victims of the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike, Pushing Daisies was a “forensic fairy tale” that became loved for its writing, characters, and very unique visual style. It’s hard to believe that the internet would have allowed for the untimely cancellation of Pushing Daisies if it had happened in 2015’s landscape rather than 2009’s, but the 22 episodes of Pushing Daisies will be forever loved by fans that consistently hope for a revival of the show in some form. Creator Bryan Fuller has been met »
