Take a Look at the New Ship for Bryan Fuller’s ‘Star Trek: Discovery’

13 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’m not particularly a Star Trek guy (my allegiance has always fallen toward Star Wars), but the movies in the Kelvin timeline from producer Jj Abrams definitely entertained and intrigued me enough to give the franchise some attention. However, CBS figured out how to target me by tapping Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies, American Gods) as the showrunner for their newest Star Trek television series, which was announced a few months back. Finally, San Diego Comic-Con has brought more information about the series to the masses, including the official title of Star Trek: Discovery. My favorite thing about this title is the built-in optimism

One of the most exciting series coming in 2017 is, without a doubt, American Gods. An adaptation of the acclaimed novel by Neil GaimanAmerican Gods is a fantasy drama from showrunners Bryan Fuller (HannibalPushing Daisies, the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery) and Michael Green (The RiverAlien: Covenant) that pits the old gods against the new in a war for the ages. Most of my excitement for the series has come from Bryan Fuller’s involvement (I firmly believe that Hannibal is among the best television series ever made), but, in following the production of the series, it’s seemed as if every single aspect has come

New Series Titled "Star Trek: Discovery"

23 July 2016 3:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Hannibal" and "Pushing Daisies" showrunner Bryan Fuller hosted today's "Star Trek" 50th anniversary panel in Hall H at Comic-Con where he teased a bit about the upcoming new "Star Trek" TV series which he is producing for CBS All Access.

The official title has been revealed as "Star Trek: Discovery" and follows the USS Discovery (Ncc-1031), the name of the ship on Captain Cook's Third Voyage. The design is very much like the unused Ralph McQuarrie Enterprise design from "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" which boasted a much smaller saucer and big, triangular engineering section. Check out the CG flyby test scene below.

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in July 2016 (And the Best Episodes of Each)

1 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

1. “BoJack Horseman” Season 3 (available July 22)

Why Should I Watch It? “BoJack Horseman” is a literal and figurative treasure trove of joy, insight and harsh truths. On the literal side, so many small moments pop up throughout the 30-minute episodes it takes repeat viewings to appreciate them all — from the .gif-worthy transitionary bits to the heavy-hitting quips. Yet figuratively, “BoJack” offers up a distinct, strong viewpoint that isn’t afraid to take questions to an existential level, which creates deeper subjective realizations each time you watch (and re-watch, and re-watch, and re-watch…). This is as “must-see” as TV gets — every time.

Best Episode: We wouldn’t dare spoil the new season — not even by telling you what episode to look forward to — and we’ve already covered Season 2. (After much deliberation, we chose “Escape From L.A.” as the best episode.) So let’s just set this time aside to honor the »

“It was one of the sets that we were the most excited about and an opportunity to do a tonal landgrab for what we are and what the style of the show will be,” states executive producer Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies). “[Jack’s] is a kind of hillbilly chic aesthetic for Shadow’s entrée into the world of the gods.”

“Neil created this wonderfully stuffed toy box filled with all sorts of cultural points of view on how American operates as a system, and that was so fascinating and mythological in and of itself,” Fuller continues. “It’s really much more »

‘Jagged Little Pill’ is now the age Alanis Morissette was when it was released

13 June 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

21 years ago today, Jagged Little Pill hit record stores, soon to be a smash hit and eventually one of the best-selling albums of all time. The album is now the age that Alanis Morissette was when it was released — it came out a couple weeks after her 21st birthday. It was the third album from the Canadian singer but a major deviation from her first two studio albums, records that had a generic teen dance-pop sound before Morissette found the voice that would make her a breakout star. Alt-rock Jagged Little Pill captured the rollercoaster that is life as you’re transitioning from your teenage years into your 20s. Morissette was 19 when she wrote it. As evidenced by the album’s massive sales, there were plenty of people who identified with her lyrics and the raw emotion in the music, from “You Oughta Know,” an anthem for any woman who has been betrayed by someone they thought they loved, to the spiritual yearning in opening track “All I Really Want” to “You Learn,” one of the least angsty songs on the album, an ode to making mistakes and learning from them. Jagged Little Pill was nominated for nine Grammy Awards. Morissette’s win for Album of the Year in 1996 made her the youngest artist to receive the honor. She held that record for 14 years, until Taylor Swift won the award in 2010. Other notable June 13 happenings in pop culture history: • 1967: The Temptations’ single “You’re My Everything” was released. It got to the #3 spot on the U.S. R&B chart and #6 on the U.S. Pop chart. • 1969: The Rolling Stones introduced new guitarist Mick Taylor at a press conference in London’s Hyde Park. He made his live debut with the Stones that July at a free concert in Hyde Park. • 1970: The Beatles’ album Let It Be hit the top spot on the U.S. album chart. It held the #1 spot for four weeks. Also on this day, The Beatles’ “Long and Winding Road” hit #1 on the singles chart. • 1977: Matthew Garber, who had played Michael Banks in Mary Poppins, died at age 21. • 1988: Paula Abdul released her debut album, Forever Your Girl. • 1989: Jerry Lee Lewis was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. • 1989: The premiere screening of License to Kill is held in London. The James Bond film — Timothy Dalton’s second and final turn as 007 — opened in the U.S. the following month. • 2003: English group Arctic Monkeys played their first gig at The Grapes, a pub in Sheffield, England. • 2009: The final episode of Pushing Daisies finally aired, after the series’ cancelation back in November. »

Battlestar Galactica Has Happened Before, Will Happen Again With 'Westworld' Writer

10 June 2016 10:51 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Remember a few years ago when Universal was working on a Battlestar Galactica feature film? Turns out it's still happening and it has some exciting new names attached. We first have to go all the way back to 2009 when work on this film project first started. The 2003/4 Syfy reboot of the 70s series was just wrapping up and Universal got together with Glen A. Larson to start work in a big-screen version. The project was meant to be a reimagining of the story which did not continue with the continuity of the original television series or the reboot but would include the characters we know like Adama, Starbuck, and Baltar. Bryan Singer was attached to direct at one point and in 2011 John Orloff was close to writing, telling Deadline “I have wanted to write this movie since I was 12 years old, and built a Galactica model from scratch out of balsa wood, cardboard, old model parts and LEDs. I love BSG, and I would pass on the job rather than frak it up.” Things were quiet for a bit and then in 2014 Universal hired Transcendence writer Jack Paglen (who's also worked on Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant) for screenwriting duties. Earlier this year they picked up Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark of Bluegrass Films to produce but now we get to the really exciting news. Deadline reports on a new writer and a possible new director: The long-awaited big-screen transfer of the Glen Larson 1978 TV series is moving forward at Universal. Lisa Joy, who scripted and is exec producer on HBO’s series Westworld, is writing the script. Francis Lawrence is circling the movie to direct...Numerous directors have taken cracks at the feature film version over the years. It gives Universal a strong chance to create another tentpole franchise. This is excellent news from where I'm standing. Joy's credits also include Pushing Daisies and Burn Notice. She was also writing a film for Sony Pictures in 2014 which would have focused on female characters from Spider-Man lore, though there hasn't been any updates on that for a while.  Lawrence of course ushered the last three installments of The Hunger Games franchise to screen and I'd be interested to see what his BSG would look like. Here's a tip for you though - keep Katee Sackhoff as Starbuck. »
