USA Network has greatly expanded the cast of its intriguing drama pilot Complications.

The biggest new player is Beth Riesgraf (Leverage), who will be going through some serious issues opposite O’Mara.

In the United Kingdom we had a show called Hustle. The basic concept was to take a group of grifters and each episode they would take part in some type of heist, when watching Leverage: Complete Season 4 which has just been released on DVD in the UK I can’t help but feel that it’s like Hustle meets the A-Team. Where Hustle focused more on the heist and making money, Leverage though looks to add a moral side to art of grifting giving the victims the “Leverage” to get revenge on the people who have wronged them.
Leverage works on a basic concept of setting up a bad guy, in this case they must always be rich and will have gained these riches in an unmoral way. Like in the A-Team »

‘The independents will save the movie business,” an upbeat Devlin (pictured above with Mel Gibson) said at Electric’s American Film Market bash Friday night at the Viceroy. “We don’t over-manage projects like the studios do.” Case in point — Electric is fully financing mob drama “The Wannabe,” starring Patricia Arquette, Vincent Piazza and Michael Imperioli. Martin Scorsese is executive producing “The Wannabe,” which began production last week on a 20-day shoot with Nick Sandow directing from his own script. Piazza is playing a man obsessed with mob culture who attempts to fix the jury in the trial of John Gotti. “I came on to finance without seeing the script,” Devlin noted. “I’m making a bet because I liked the story and I especially »

The new pickup is "Bosch," based on best-selling author Michael Connelly's character Harry Bosch. Titus Welliver ("The Good Wife," "Lost") will play the title character, a world-weary Lapd detective; Annie Wersching ("24"), Jamie Hector ("The Wire") and Amy Price-Francis ("The Chicago Code") also star.
Amazon has also released a few more details about Carter's pilot "The After," which it ordered a couple months ago.

This review contains spoilers.
1.1 The Blood is the Life
When Jonathan Rhys Meyers signed on to do The Tudors, I had my doubts. With a couple of degrees in Renaissance studies, I’m tough to please when it comes to narratives set in the sixteenth and seventeenth century. And how on earth did a skinny and somewhat effeminate guy who seems to have stopped aging at 25 and who falls short of 5’10 expect to pull off playing twenty years at the end of the life of a he-man known to tower above the rest of his court while sporting a waistline almost three quarters his own height? It wasn’t just improbable. It was outright laughable.
And yet, by »

There’s a whole world of superhero-related comedy that has yet to be fully explored because, quite ridiculously, most audiences are too wrapped up in the more serious ventures put out by Marvel and DC in the form of movies and television dramas. But that’s why we have brilliant minds like Felicia Day, who has created a platform where less typical types of programs can be tackled. Day’s Geek & Sundry YouTube channel is going to be the future home of a new web series from Amy Berg and Mike Sizemore, called Caper. It’s the exact kind of silliness that I’ve been wanting from a superhero series for the longest time.
The web series will reunite Berg with Leverage star Beth Riesgraf, who will be playing one of four superheroes who, according to THR, are forced to consider a life of crime in order to fund their crime-fighting lifestyles. »

Written/exec producer by Chris Downey (Leverage) and co-created/exec produced by Apollo Robbins (The Gentleman Thief), the untitled drama centers on Alice Jones, an FBI forensic psychiatrist, who teams up with Vincent Smith, a brilliant pickpocket-turned-Las Vegas magician, to catch bad guys living it up in Vegas in elaborate stings. Each week, Vince and Alice are ably assisted Ocean’s Eleven-style, by a rogue’s gallery of Sin City hustler, card cheats and showgirls. Downey and Robbins are repped by CAA and Jaimie Afifi; Campbell is with CAA and Walter Teller and Ken Richman. ABC has put in development The Law Of Attraction, a legal drama written-executive produced by veteran TV writers, married couple Jonathan Shapiro (The Practice) and Betsy Borns (All of Us), in their first collaboration. It follows a beautiful, »

This show Helix is looking really, really promising. SciFiMafia.com attended a set tour and panel Q&A session last week in Montreal – more about that in the days to come – and this show could fill a real void in the science-fiction thriller arena. Executive producer Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) wasn’t at the panel session, but he did record this outline of the show which was released to attendees:

Leverage takes a curtain call this month as 20th Century Home Entertainment releases the fifth and final season on DVD. The four-disc set contains the complete fifteen episode season, which was aired in two batches across summer and winter 2012. Since then, the series has remained in the public eye thanks to three incredibly fun novels along with its well-deserved honor as Favorite Cable TV Drama at the 39th People’s Choice Awards.
Much as we here at ComicMix have adored the show, the audience has been dwindling; opening the final year with 3.39 million viewers and the final drew a smaller 3.04 million, far too small these days to be sustained. However, co-creators Dean Devlin and John Rogers suspected this was the make-it or break-it season and prepared accordingly. From the outset of the season, Nate Ford (Tim Hutton) was up to something and we saw him pushing the other members of »

NBC’s upcoming pirate drama Crossbones has mostly existed on my peripheral radar, but Coupling and Covert Affairs hottie Richard Coyle has been cast in the lead role, according to Deadline. He’ll play an assassin who infiltrates a pirate haven in order to kill Blackbeard.
when he was on Covert Affairs. Not that I minded.
I was lucky enough to see Ken Jeong‘s comedy act before he hit it big. Back then, he went by Dr. Ken and a lot of his comedy focused on his patients and the transition from medicine to comedy. I enjoy him on Community, but the Dr. Ken routine was a different side of Jeong and one I miss sometimes because it was also entertaining. That’s the long way of saying that I was pretty excited to »
