In December of 1967, at the height of the Vietnam War, Australian Prime Minister vanished without a trace. No warning. No clues. He was simply gone and has never been heard from since. What happened to Holt? That's been the subject of many conspiracy theories in the years since and is now the subject of an upcoming Australian short thriller titled simply Holt.The team behind this one is pretty spectacular, from Fringe star John Noble in the lead to Oscar winning cinematographer Russell Boyd, the production designer of Dark City and Daybreakers, the editor of The Great Gatsby ... this is quality from top to bottom and they're looking for a little help on Kickstarter to make it a reality. Check the pitch video below...

On tonight's episode of Sleepy Hollow, Ichabod (Tom Mison) and Abbie (Nicole Beharie) will tangle with a demonic take on the Pied Piper. Presumably, our heroes will best the beast before the hour is over. But even if they do, they'll still have to tangle with season two's true Big Bad: Henry Parrish, a.k.a. the Second Horseman of the Apocalypse, a.k.a. Ichabod and Katrina's long-lost son. As played by John Noble, he's a deliciously wicked foil for the two Witnesses—especially when he's slinking around Sleepy Hollow pretending to be an innocent lawyer. EW caught up »

Showtime's newest drama premiered last night, and if you're a TV fan who hasn't seen it yet, you're going to want to fix that immediately. Not only does it boast an odd yet excellent assortment of incredible actors from incredible shows – Dominic West from The Wire, Maura Tierney from ER, Ruth Wilson from Luther, and Joshua Jackson from Fringe (or let's be real – Dawson's Creek) – but it's also the best new drama of the season. There. We said it. It's also not at all what you think! Not just a show about an affair, but memory, and how vastly people's recollections can differ...Making for a truly unique premise for the show in which everyone is »
The seeds for Showtime’s The Affair were planted on Sunday night — will you be sticking around to see how this “He Said, She Said” drama plays out?
Co-created by In Treatment‘s Sarah Treem and Hagai Levi, The Affair stars Dominic West (The Wire) as Noah Solloway, a New York City school teacher and aspiring novelist who is spending the summer at his in-laws’ estate out on Long Island. As he, wife Helen (ER‘s Maura Tierney) and their brood of kids arrive for this getaway, they make the acquaintance of a local waitress, Alison (Luther‘s Ruth Wilson »
The Affair, Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”
Directed by Mark Mylod
Airs Sundays at 10 pm Et on Showtime
Over the past few years, shows such as In Treatment, The Wire, Fringe, and Luther have all garnered widespread critical acclaim. The newest series from Showtime brings together talents from all four shows, as Sarah Treem and Hagai Levi team up once again to create The Affair. Focusing on two couples and the toll an extramarital affair has on both, the new series stars Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Joshua Jackson, and Maura Tierney, and uses multiple perspectives to look at the same event from different angles. The show’s pilot episode indicates these talents have not been wasted, as it delivers an engrossing episode that uses its unique storytelling structure to great effect, while painting a compelling mystery populated by strong characters. »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Sunday's The Affair premiere.] Joshua Jackson has played good-guy roles in Dawson's Creek and, more recently, Fox's Fringe. But he's taken a darker turn in The Affair, playing Cole Lockhart, the husband of Ruth Wilson's Alison. "I think there is a great liberty in allowing the ugliness that can happen between humans just to happen," he tells The Hollywood Reporter. In Cole's first scene of the newly premiered Showtime drama, he sexually assaults his wife — or at least, that's how the scene is shown from the perspective of Noah (Dominic West),

But just as it is for the characters at the center of his new TV gig, temptation was hard to resist.
In Showtime’s The Affair (premiering Sunday at 10/9c), Jackson stars as Cole, a Montauk, N.Y. rancher struggling alongside his wife Alison (played by Luther‘s Ruth Wilson) over the loss of their child. While Cole copes by closing himself off, Alison starts a dalliance with visiting, married writer Noah (The Wire’s Dominic West »
Showtime this Sunday at 10/9c invites you to lay witness to The Affair that ignites between an aspiring novelist and a Hamptons waitress, each uniquely unhappy in their respective marriages.
But whereas TV’s most recent bid to revolve a premise on infidelity, ABC’s one-and-done Betrayal, left people cold, this new drama presents the illicit relationship from two distinct points of view — that of the aforementioned waitress, Alison (played by Luther‘s Ruth Wilson), and Hamptons vacationer Noah (The Wire‘s Dominic West). Joshua Jackson (Fringe) and Maura Tierney (ER), meanwhile, play Alison and Noah’s respective mates, Cole and Helen. »

Rothhaar’s Officer Acker will debut in Episode 8 of the NBC drama’s upcoming fourth season, and he’ll be around for at least three episodes.
With so many TV shows being cancelled after a season or two, it’s perhaps not surprising that those that keep going long enough to reach a significant milestone often want to mark the occasion in some way. Such celebratory episodes usually feature plenty of nods, in-jokes and references to past episodes and characters (frequently involving special guest stars from the show’s past returning in some form) and tend to be either light, sometimes metafictional comedy episodes, or extremely dramatic game-changers following which the show may never be the same again. If you’re not crying with laughter, you’ll probably be weeping at the emotional trauma inflicted by the story.

It cannot be denied that Hugo Weaving is one of the greatest actors working today. While Laurence Fishburne is, of course, awesome, The Matrix Trilogy would have been nothing without Weaving’s towering performance as Agent Smith. He added greater depth and complexity to V For Vendetta, and presented Red Skull as a most fearsome foe in Captain America: The First Avenger. But, for all the big budget films he does, it is his selection of smaller, independent projects that make for the most interesting viewing – and that’s what we have here, in The Mule.
Check out the plot summary for the movie below:
“Inspired by true events, The Mule tells the story of a naïve young man who is detained by federal police with lethal narcotics hidden in his stomach. Alone and afraid, ‘the Mule’ makes a desperate choice; to defy bodily functions and withhold the evidence… literally. »

We're debuting the premiere of Showtime's new drama, a week early, starting at midnight on October 5, so you can get hooked ahead of time. Of course, that means you'll have to wait up to two weeks for the next ep, but nothing satisfies quite like instant gratification, right? Well, maybe there are a few things...
"The Affair" officially premieres Sunday, October 12, at 10 p.m. Et/Pt on Showtime.
Wanna know more more? Here's what the show is about, straight from Showtime:
Showtime's upcoming one-hour drama series, The Affair, stars Golden Globe(R) nominees Dominic West (The Wire) and Ruth Wilson (Luther), as well as Emmy(R) nominee Maura Tierney (ER) and SAG Award(R) nominee Joshua Jackson (Fringe). The Affair explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair. The provocative drama will be told separately from the male and female perspectives - using the distinct memory biases to both misdirect and intrigue. »

Wilmington, Nc. There was a point a few years back when I seemed to talk with John Noble every few weeks about the universe-bending twists and turns of Fox's "Fringe." We talked on the drama's Vancouver set. We talked at Fox summer press days on multiple occasions. We talked via satellite. We talked at Comic-Con. Because of the constantly evolving nature of "Fringe" and Walter Bishop and Walternate and various permutations on each character, Noble never repeated himself in our conversations and always impressed with a passion for the subject matter that extended to his hosting duties on Science's "Dark Matters: Twisted But True." Noble probably wasn't worried about the year or two that he spent not being interviewed by HitFix. He did some Australian TV. He guested on CBS' "The Good Wife" a couple times. And he began work on another Fox drama "Sleepy Hollow," in which he got »

Unless you’ve been living under a rock troll, you know that ABC’s Once Upon a Time will lead off Season 4 (premiering Sunday at 8/7c) with its own spin on Frozen‘s Queen Elsa, Anna et al. But that’s just the tip of the storytelling iceberg, as creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis shared with TVLine as part of our Fall Preview and during a chat at the show’s premiere party.

In 1992 Emilio Estevez (The Breakfast Club) starred as former hockey player turned successful lawyer turned drunk driver turned peewee league coach Gordon Bombay in The Mighty Ducks – titled Champions in the U.K. – Disney’s low budget ice hockey family drama. It turned out to be a surprise hit, spawning two sequels and launching the careers of some well known actors. Actress Marguerite Moreau who played Connie in all three Ducks movies initiated a cast reunion of sorts via her Instagram when she posted a picture of a Mighty Ducks whistle accompanied by the status “calling all brethren”.
The reunion consisted mainly of the D2: The Mighty Ducks cast including Mike Vitar who played Luis Mendoza, Garette Ratliff Henson who played Guy, Vincent Larusso who played Adam Banks, Aaron Lohr who played Dean Portman, Shaun Weiss who played Goldberg and Scott Whyte who played the Iceland captain Gunnar Stahl.

Hulu‘s original content doesn’t get the attention it deserves, but things may change soon as Stephen King and J.J. Abrams join the mix. They’ve announced a series order for the nine-episode event based on King’s 11/22/63. The alt-history novel that surrounds the Kennedy assassination is not only a great story, and one that King himself believes fits the format, it will be an interesting series that may open some doors.
There are a lot of alt-history works that I’d like to see, whether as series or films, and something has to sell the genre to the money people. Plus, Hulu has several fantastic shows, and you don’t hear enough about them. Maybe something that has a lot of roads to attention will pull in a big range of new potential Hulu fans, who will then check out more content.

DC Comics are slowly beginning to take over the small screen with the upcoming Gotham, Constantine and The Flash, which are set to join the already-immensely successful Arrow. However it looks as if even more studios are eager to get in on the action, as American Cable Network TNT is reportedly close to securing a new television deal with Warner Bros.
If the deal is successful, TNT will be ordering a pilot for a live action Teen Titans drama series in the coming weeks. Although the show will be based on the adolescent superheroes previously seen in Cartoon Network’s popular animated series, the live action adaptation will be considerably darker and instead go by the name of ‘Titans’. The series will centre on Batman’s former sidekick (and ex-Robin) Dick Grayson, who has now taken on the mantle of a fearless saviour known as Nightwing. The report mentions that »

On September 22, 2004, a wild pop romance—a torrid affair between audience and story—took flight. 18.65 million viewers tuned into ABC to watch Oceanic Flight 815 crash on a strange island, leaving an eclectic cross-section of archetypes on a vast spit of mystery. Here, on the 10th anniversary of Lost’s premiere, we remember a first date for the ages.
Produced for $14 million and shot by director J.J. Abrams with Spielbergian verve, the two-hour pilot immediately sucked us into an exotic survival saga and a shrewdly formulated allegory for a fractured, catastrophe-frazzled world. It captured your imagination by promising a journey with global vision, »

Like far-reaching ripples made by a stone plopped in a still pond, three shots in Dallas changed the course of America’s history on November 22nd, 1963. The assassination of President Kennedy has been debated and analyzed for decades, but in Stephen King’s novel, 11/22/63, one man has the chance to erase it from history in a time-bending journey that’s now being adapted into a new series for Hulu.
An upcoming Hulu original series, the adaptation of 11/22/63 will be executive produced by Stephen King, J. J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, and Bridget Carpenter (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), who will also script the project. J. J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television are backing the adaptation, which is being developed as a nine-hour event series. We’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements. In the meantime, we have the official press release with full details (via TV by »

Comedy Central over the weekend released the first video from the long-running animated series’ premiere, which finds notorious nogoodnik Eric Cartman mincing words with Dan Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins.
It seems South Park‘s resident hell raiser is taking advantage of the NFL team not being able to trademark its own name by launching a little company of his own.
