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 »

The midseason drama stars Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Sergeant Odelle Ballard, an American soldier who, in the midst of an unplanned takedown of Al Qaeda’s top commander, stumbles across enormously volatile intel — the transfer of $30 million from the American company “Soc” to a terrorist cell. Soon afterwards, private military contractors, Osela, arrive to take out Odelle’s entire unit, though she secretly survives, the only witness to the massacre. »

American Odyssey Ep Talks Epic Origin, 'Fierce' Anna Friel, 24 Comparisons

3 April 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When NBC’s Odyssey recently tweaked its title to American Odyssey, some joked that the ancient Greek poet Homer had filed suit for trademark infringement.

But make no mistake, the midseason thriller (premiering Sunday at 10/9c) is inspired by the epic poem.

American Odyssey Review – TV NBC

2 April 2015 3:06 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Much as the horror genre is deeply rooted in the evolving culture that creates it, NBC‘s latest “action-drama,” American Odyssey, builds itself from the conspiracy fears that are now equally laughed off and assumed to be obviously true.

Sgt. Odelle Ballard (Anna Friel, “Pushing Daisies”) is part of a group that stumbles upon an Al Qaeda’s top commander, but she quickly discovers intel that suggests an American corporation is funding the group. A private military company comes to clean up, and Odelle’s company is killed to cover things up. She escapes, but now she’s on the run, and a long way from home, and doesn’t have anyone she can trust.

Meanwhile, back at home, former U.S. Attorney Peter Decker (Peter Facinelli) is in the middle of a merger with the same company that apparently funded the jihadists, and he starts to put the pieces »

Five-0's Chi McBride: Grover Makes Waves With an Unpopular Hunch

Though the weather is a marked upgrade from, say, where Human Target was filmed (“It only rains twice a year in Vancouver: once for five months, one for four,” he quips), Hawaii Five-0‘s idyllic setting is almost inconsequential to Chi McBride‘s enjoyment of his latest TV role.

“I’m always having a good time doing a show. Well, I take that back — there was one time I didn’t,” the veteran actor reports with a chuckle (and without naming names). “But I like to have fun, man. Because at the end of the day, we’re not pulling »

TV Review: ‘American Odyssey’

2 April 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC describes “American Odyssey” as “’Traffic’-like,” which might explain the lack of inspiration permeating this multi-pronged drama, which, much like sibling USA’s “Dig,” hinges on a vast (and tedious) conspiracy. The intersecting threads involve a U.S. soldier in North Africa, a corporate lawyer and an Occupy-type political activist, each embroiled in a monstrous plot reaching up and into government. First-rate casting — including Anna Friel, Peter Facinelli and Treat Williams — can’t obscure the been-there, seen-that sensation, which doesn’t spur much curiosity about how these tentacles connect or offer much hope the show will last long enough to find out.

Friel (“Pushing Daisies”) plays the soldier, Sgt. Odelle Ballard, who while on a mission in Mali pursuing a wanted terrorist stumbles across computer files revealing a major corporation is providing money to the Jihadists. When she offers an inkling of what she has learned to higher-ups — namely, »

'Hannibal' Season 3 Episode and Director Details Unveiled

24 March 2015 6:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we reported that Season 3 of Hannibal will debut on NBC June 4. NBC revealed back in January that they were pushing the show to debut in the summer, instead of the spring like the first seasons, but it seems the extended wait will be well worth it. Series creator Bryan Fuller took to his Twitter account earlier this week to share a number of intriguing details about this upcoming season, along with the directors for four of the 13 episodes.

Bryan Fuller made all of these revelations after asking the fans on his Twitter page to vote for his earlier series Pushing Daisies in an online poll of which beloved but short-lived shows should come back. After Pushing Daisies beat out Firefly in the final round, Bryan Fuller started releasing Hannibal tidbits, first revealing that the Season 3 premiere, "Antipasto", "will take place over four different periods of time."

NBC’s Odyssey Retitled American Odyssey On Eve Of Debut

13 March 2015 6:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

NBC has tweaked the title of its upcoming drama Odyssey less than a month before its premiere, renaming the show American Odyssey.

Though the network declined to comment on what spurred the name change, sources close to the production say the new title better reflects the arduous journey of protagonist Odelle (Anna Friel), an American soldier beset by enemies on all sides as she attempts to return to her friends and family in New York.

Of course, the more cynical answer is that NBC execs weren’t living under a rock in January, when American Sniper stormed the box office and racked up Oscar nominations. Renaming the show American Odyssey may make the series more palatable to the same right-leaning audiences that sent Sniper soaring.

The transformation in NBC’s advertising campaign, tied in with the name-change, is quite startling. Whereas Friel’s protagonist was before on her knees, with her hands bound, »
