Hannibal, old friend, you kinda lost me this week.
Look, I know Raul Esparza’s Dr. Frederick Chilton is vain, haughty, inept, smarmy, malicious and all sorts of other unpleasant adjectives. And I’ll admit I didn’t feel the slightest hint of sympathy when the dude had some of his organs painfully removed by Abel Gideon in Season 1 — or when Chilton took a bullet to the face (fired by the deeply addled Miriam Lass) in Season 2.
But there’s a difference between letting out a hearty chuckle at the end of »

“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” almost didn’t make it to air, but now, the comedy is looking ahead to seven potential Emmy wins this September.
“Kimmy’s” turnaround exemplifies the age of television we’re living in today. It’s not just a golden age, it’s an age of rebirth.
The Tina Fey and Robert Carlock-created “Kimmy” isn’t the only series Netflix has “adopted” from another network recently. The streaming service greenlit a fourth season of Western drama “Longmire,” after it was cancelled by A&E for failing to strike gold in young demos. Netflix already streams the earlier seasons of “Longmire,” and new episodes bow Sept. 10.
As “Longmire” co-creator John Coveny observed at this summer’s Television Critics Assn. press tour, “Netflix said, ‘We want human beings to watch this show — if it has heart and soul to it, we need that piece in the Netflix family. »

Over the years, numerous films have seen themselves re-formatted and adapted to television series, with last year alone bringing series adaptations as varied as El Rey’s From Dusk Till Dawn and FX’s Fargo. HBO is poised to add another show to those ranks next year, as the channel announced that it would be adapting the 1973 Michael Crichton film Westworld into a tv series. The film, which starred Yul Brynner and James Brolin, marked the feature directorial debut of Crichton, who also wrote the screenplay.
Person of Interest creator Jonathan Nolan co-created the series, also titled Westworld, alongside Burn Notice and Pushing Daisies writer Lisa Joy. Nolan will be directing the pilot for the series, which stars Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Ed Harris, Clifton Collins Jr., and Jeffrey Wright. Set to premiere in 2016, though a premiere date has not been announced, HBO has released the first trailer for the series. »

If you plan to visit Camp Firewood for Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer prequel series — which hits the streaming service at midnight on Friday — make sure to leave some room in your duffel bag for suspension of disbelief.
Executive producers David Wain and Michael Showalter, who also wrote the eight-episode limited series, are well aware that the camp’s counselors don’t look exactly as they did in 2001, when the feature film was released.
“When we made the original movie, we were 30 playing 16. Now, we’re in our forties playing 16. There’s only so much you can do to de-age that, »
These days, Kristin Chenoweth is everywhere — on film and TV, in concert and on the Broadway stage for eight shows a week as the Tony-nominated romantic lead Lily Garland/Mildred Plotka in Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of “On the Twentieth Century.”
“This is a commitment, what I’m doing and (what) all of my fellow Broadway artists (are doing),” says the petite Oklahoman (she’s all of 4 feet, 11 inches tall) of her role as the ugly duckling piano accompanist who transforms into a swan movie star. “It’s a marathon, like being an Olympic athlete. It’s also a gift.”
And Chenoweth’s fans know it. The second she appears onstage, the audience thunderously applauds. And then comes that unmistakable voice: bigger than she is — perfect in pitch, tone and breath — from ballad to belt.
“Kristin is enormously bright and kind,” says Matthew Broderick, who starred opposite Chenoweth in »

The drama, titled after Ben Franklin’s yearly almanac, comes from exec producer Jim Danger Gray, who served as a producer on “Orange Is the New Black,” and consulting producer Miguel Sapochnik, who directed two “Game of Thrones” episodes this past season and will direct two more in 2016.
“Poor Richard’s Almanack” is described as an edge-of-your-seat thriller about a group of heroes who emerge as the new Founding Fathers, after America is pushed to the brink of collapse. The series weaves between modern day and a possible future where characters have radically changed.
The pilot marks the second project between Legendary and USA, »

Over the course of its run, the NBC series Hannibal has received critical acclaim from numerous quarters, establishing Bryan Fuller as another force in television following his critical success with shows such as Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies. Based on the characters created by Thomas Harris, with the titular character having been previously brought onscreen by the likes of Anthony Hopkins, Brian Cox, and Gaspard Ulliel, this series puts Casino Royale‘s Mads Mikkelsen in the role of Dr. Lecter, with Hugh Dancy playing Will Graham.
Shortly after the show’s third season began, NBC announced that they would be cancelling the show following the end of the season. With many fans lamenting the show’s imminent demise, the series held a panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, where they unveiled a look at another major character from the novels and movies, that of Francis Dolarhyde, aka Red Dragon.

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.

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" 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, »

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.

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 »
