The ‘Wheel of Time’ TV Adaptation Moves Forward

21 April 2017 8:19 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Sony has the rights and an executive producer for ‘Wheel of Time.’Credit: Tor.com

It’s happening; it’s finally happening! Sony Pictures Television announced that it is adapting the Wheel of Time book series. Sony, Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures will co-produce the series. Rafe Judkins will write and executive produce. Judkins’ credits include ABC’s Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D., Netflix’s Hemlock Grove, and NBC’s Chuck. Red Eagle’s Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon will also serve as executive producers as well as Radar’s Ted Field and Mike Weber. Harriet McDougal, books series writer Robert Jordan’s widow, will serve as consulting producer.

Game of Thrones, there I said it. The first thing that springs to everyone’s mind when mentioning this project is Game of Thrones. Since Game of Thrones premiered on April 2017, I’m pretty sure just almost every television pitch meeting has started with »

Wheel of Time TV series picked up by Sony Pictures Television

21 April 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It has been about a year since we have last heard anything about the planned television series based on Robert Jordan’s sprawling Wheel of Time book series. However, Variety has just reported that Sony Pictures Television will produce the high-fantasy TV series alongside Red Eagle Entertainment, and Radar Pictures. Rafe Judkins, known for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Chuck, and Hemlock Grove is attached to write, and executive produce. Also attached is Robert Jordan’s widow Harriet McDougal, who will serve as a consultant producer for the show.

The Wheel of Time series is absolutely perfect for a television adaptation. The expansive 15 book fantasy series is full of amazing characters, depth, and lore that has the potential to keep things fresh for a long time. It is easy to see this show going well beyond Game of Thrones in terms of seasons. There is so much ground to cover in these books. »

TV Review: ‘Great News’ on NBC

20 April 2017 4:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Great News” may be the only sitcom on television to prominently feature admiration for Chico’s — yes, Chico’s, the mid-market mall staple aimed at slightly kooky older women. Carol (Andrea Martin), Katie (Briga Heelan)’s mother, is an avid connoisseur of Chico’s fashions. She also has a walking club and four closets full of quilts; she admires Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who she calls in her head “Old Christine.” She has a friend named Angie and another named Other Carol, and you’ll never believe what happened for Other Carol’s birthday: Two of her friends got her the exact same top from Chico’s, in two different colors. (We are informed that she’s going to keep them both.)

Great News,” a slightly too zany workplace comedy where Carol comes to work with Katie as a senior-citizen intern, would be less effective if it weren’t for the affection with which creator Tracey Wigfield renders the »

The Wheel Of Time: TV series pressing ahead

20 April 2017 10:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Apr 21, 2017

The Wheel Of Time, the sprawling fantasy novel series by Robert Jordan, will be adapted by Sony as a television series....

One of the most popular fantasy franchises of the literary world, The Wheel Of Time, has taken a crucial step towards a live-action adaptation.

Originally authored by Robert Jordan, the 80 million-selling 1990-2013 book series depicts a sprawling mythology, amalgamating feudal and magical tropes with elements of Eastern mysticism. Now, Sony will be the benefactor of a television adaptation series.

According to Variety, Sony Pictures Television is moving forward with a serial adaptation of the The Wheel Of Time, producing the project along with Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures.

Of course, this should be a large scale endeavor, since the novels of Robert Jordan (nom de plume of James O. Rigney Jr.), three of which were completed by Brandon Sanderson after Jordan’s 2007 death, build an »

Wheel Of Time TV Series Gets A New Lease Of Life At Sony

20 April 2017 9:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a long and meandering road for the adaptation of Robert Jordan (real name: James O. Rigney Jr) fantasy epic The Wheel of Time. The 14-part novel series, which concluded with the release of A Memory of Light in 2007, has flirted with the small screen before when Jordan’s widow, Harriet McDougal, revealed that the legendary property had landed at a major Hollywood studio.

We now know that studio to be Sony, and we understand the company has partnered with Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures to do good on that initial vision. First reported by Variety, and later confirmed by IGN, the serialized spin on Wheel of Time has appointed Rafe Judkins (Agents of Shield, Chuck, Hemlock Grove) to write and produce, with Harriet McDougal on board as a consulting producer. The importance of her involvement can’t be overstated, either, given McDougal served as an editor »

The long-gestating “Wheel of Time” TV series adaptation is moving forward with Sony Pictures Television.

The series will be based on the high fantasy novels written by Robert Jordan, the pen name of James O.

Sony will produce along with Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures. Rafe Judkins is attached to write and executive produce. Judkins previously worked on shows such as ABC’s “Agents of Shield,” the Netflix series “Hemlock Grove,” and the NBC series “Chuck.” Red Eagle partners Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon will executive produce along with Radar’s Ted Field and Mike Weber.

The Handmaid's Tale Review: An Artistic, Harrowing, Must-See Civics Lesson

18 April 2017 12:56 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Hulu is about to release its adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale.

If you're unfamiliar with the story, it's set in a near-future America that has been decimated by environmental troubles, war and the onset of an infertility crisis nobody knew how to solve.

It’s a harrowing look at could happen when the rights we’ve fought for and won in a democracy are threatened and lost because of complacency.

In other words, it’s a story that could be about our society today if we not careful.

Having never imagined myself a feminist by the traditional definition of the word, but I am so incredibly proud to be a part of television today which is on the receiving end of so many talented women creating spectacular programming. This is how it should always be.

Not only did Atwood write The Handmaid’s Tale in response to »

Every year, celebrities, filmmakers, journalists and movie fans flock to the Tribeca neighborhood in lower Manhattan for the Tribeca Film Festival, an illustrious celebration of film and television that features some of the most exciting projects and panel discussions of any media festival in the country.

So whether or not it’s a film from Israel or Palestine or something for kids, our festival was about community and it still is,” Rosenthal tells Et. “It’s about bringing community together.”

Need to catch up? Check out our previous Riverdale recap here.

Birthday parties are lots of fun, right? Well, not on Riverdale, where they just lead to bitter arguments, problem drinking and uncomfortable secrets being revealed.

It’s Jughead’s birthday, but he doesn’t want anyone to know about it: He’s happy to celebrate by catching a double feature at the Bijou. Archie usually joins him, but this year, he suggests to Betty that she step in. She didn’t even know it was Jughead’s birthday, so she wants to throw him a surprise party.

Handmaid's Tale Review: Hulu's Superb Drama Will (and Should) Terrify You

13 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

In the third episode of The Handmaid’s Tale, Hulu’s eerily prescient series adaptation of the popular novel, there’s a quote that might’ve seemed like no more than standard dystopian-fiction fodder just a few years ago.

Now, it packs a bit more punch.

Shane Black’s The Predator script said to have a “wicked sense of humour”

12 April 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shane Black’s screenplay for his upcoming take on The Predator franchise is said to have “a wicked sense of humour”, according to one of the film’s stars.

Predator seems to be one of those series, like Terminator or Alien, that we will always go back to — either with original directors feeling the urge to continue what they started, or new talents coming along to try their hand.

There is a lot of positivity surrounding Shane Black’s attempt, with his movies known for their sharp wit and dynamic energy.

Well it seems his take on Predator won’t be any different, as star Sterling K. Brown has spoken to EW about the humour found in Black’s script.

“Shane has his whole take on it and it’s very different than the original Predator. It’s got a really wicked sense of humour to it, which I love about it. »

The Best and Worst Prequel TV Series — IndieWire Critics Survey

11 April 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What does it take to make a good prequel TV series? (And feel free to include an example of a show that got it right or wrong.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

A prequel TV series is the most successful when it uses familiar touchstones but creates its own world. “Hannibal” is probably the best example of this, where there were characters we recognized but the setting, experience, and modern time period were completely Bryan Fuller’s (wonderfully so). “Bates Motel” has been another positive example, especially as it nears its end. The time period is again modernized, but it keeps a surreal and retro feel. And »

Better Call Saul season 3 episode 1 review: Mabel

Better Call Saul comes back strong in season three opener, Mabel. Spoilers ahead in our review...

This review contains spoilers.

3.1 Mabel

If there’s one key theme that lies at the heart of both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, it’s that of human identity and whether it can change. Breaking Bad famously built on a core premise of ‘Mr Chips becomes Scarface’, establishing from the opening episode in Walter’s talk to his class about chemistry that this series would be all about change, specifically the way this mild-mannered man transforms due to the choices he makes and the circumstances those choices create. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger reveals he rejected cameo in Shane Black’s The Predator

7 April 2017 2:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s upcoming slate has took a bit of a hammering this past week or so, what with Paramount letting his option on a Terminator Genisys sequel lapse, the plug being pulled on The Legend of Conan, and the action icon stating he won’t appear in The Expendables 4 unless Sylvester Stallone is on board.

Well, it seems we can also officially rule out a potential cameo in next year’s The Predator, with Arnie revealing to Yahoo! Movies that he did meet with director Shane Black about a return as Dutch, but rejected the opportunity.

“They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it — whatever they offered,” said Arnold. “So I’m not going to do that, no. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won’t do that. »

Riverdale Season 1 Episode 9 Review: La Grande Illusion

7 April 2017 4:28 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Is this a match made in dysfunctional heaven? There's some potential here.

Even if the reasons were less than true, Cheryl and Archie did get a bit cozy on Riverdale Season 1 Episode 9.

The two redheaded hotties make a cute couple. I'd ship it. (Yes, you can judge me for this later...)

The Blossoms may be a devious family, and "Chapter Nine: La Grande Illusion" highlighted this even further. They know how to manipulate people to get what they want. However, I always thought Cheryl was just misunderstood.

She's being judged and used by not only her family but the people around her. The Blossom family board were ready to tear her down. It's no wonder she's a bit eccentric.

Archie: Cheryl, you okay?

Cheryl: What did my dad say to you? That I'm a trainwreck? Jason was the golden boy, but me...people hate me, Archie. At school, »

‘Better Call Saul’s’ ‘Breaking’ Point: How It’s Gearing Up for Gus Fring

5 April 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s a cold, wet January night in Albuquerque, and Giancarlo Esposito is relieved he finally doesn’t have to hide that he’s on the set of the AMC series “Better Call Saul.” He used to have to sneak into town with his head down, his face buried in a pulled-down baseball cap. When fans of the “Breaking Bad” star would still manage to spot him in the airport, he’d lie to them, claiming he was in town to get a cleanse at the Ayurvedic Institute. He even carried a lunch bag from that holistic healing center just to throw them off.

But then there was the time he ran into “Breaking Bad” co-star Mark Margolis on a connecting flight in Dallas. “That caused a bit of a stir,” he recalls with a laugh.

AMC’s worst-kept secret will be on display for devotees of both shows come April 10, when the third season of “Better Call Saul »

Chalk this up to another person it’s taken me Way to long to find out is Australian.  If there’s a female I had the biggest crush on with regard to roles in shows or movies it’s Yvonne Strahovski in Dexter.   I know how amazing she was in Chuck.  Trust me, I do.  But her in Dexter is just perfection.   She seems like the sweetest girl and yet she’s so dark, devious, but if she’s on your side it just doesn’t matter.  And all this time I never knew she was Australian until now?  Shame on me.  If it weren’t for
