Shondaland Is on a Roll and Is Now Working on a Nun Drama for ABC

25 August 2015 11:19 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Less than a week after it was announced Shondaland was developing a comedy for ABC, Variety reports that Shonda Rhimes's production company will also be working on a religious drama for the network. The 60-minute project, which comes from scribe and executive producer Alison Schapker (Fringe, Lost), has no title yet, but it will focus on an ensemble of Catholic nuns that have to keep sketchy secrets and contest the closing of their Bronx convent. (Think Desperate Housewives meets Jesus meets Up, maybe.) Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers will also reportedly executive-produce. No other details were immediately available — aside from the fact that Shondaland is officially on a roll this season. »

25 August 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Shonda Rhimes and Betsy BeersShondaland has sold its first drama project this season, and it’s very much in the company’s wheelhouse of soapy, twisty shows. The untiled one-hour is written by former Lost and Fringe writer-producer Alison Schapker. It revolves around a group of Catholic nuns fighting the closure of their Bronx-based convent who must suddenly deal with three young novices whose arrival unearths long-buried secrets.

Shondaland Developing Catholic Nun Ensemble Drama for ABC

25 August 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Less than a week after ABC put a Shondaland comedy series into development, the network has a Catholic-based drama in the works.

The untitled project from writer-exec producer Alison Schapker revolves around a group of Catholic nuns fighting the closure of their Bronx-based convent who must suddenly deal with three young novices whose arrival unearths long-buried secrets. The ensemble drama will throw into question everything you think you know about the “Brides of Christ.”

Hailing from ABC Studios, Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers will also serve as exec producers on the series, which marks the first religious genre series for Shondaland.

The “Brides of Christ”-inspired drama marks the second sale for Shondaland this season. ABC also bought a comedy, titled “Splitsville,” from “Trophy Wife” creators Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins. The laffer follows a group of single residents of a suburban cul-de-sac who join forces to raise their kids together. »

Get Your Own Back legend Dave Benson Phillips: 'Pat Sharp and I are thinking about live versions of our shows'

21 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Get Your Own Back was one of the most fun children's game shows of the 1990s. The show - which saw kids covering adults in gunge - returned at this year's Edinburgh Fringe, and is now eyeing a live tour and TV comeback.

Presenter Dave Benson Phillips's career may have been off-screen since his '90s heyday, but he still has fond memories of classic kids' shows and his great friendship with Fun House 'rival' Pat Sharp.

Why are shows like Get Your Own Back and The Crystal Maze still so adored by nostalgic fans?

"A lot of it is because the people of the 1990s were very vocal about the shows they like. We liked the shows then but there were no platforms at the time where you could say to the world, 'I liked that programme, who's with me?'.

"You have in the 1990s, a lot »

Universal Monsters Reboots Will Be Horror Movies

11 August 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in November, Universal Pictures' Donna Langley revealed some surprising news. The Universal Monsters Shared Universe being developed by the studio will not be part of the horror movie genre. Instead, this franchise, which will include the upcoming Untitled Mummy Reboot and several of the studio's most iconic horror movie characters, was described as "epic action adventure". This gave many fans pause. While doing press for his new CBS TV series Limitless, Alex Kurtzman clarified that the Universal executive's statement isn't entirely true, and that these will certainly be horror movies.

"Yeah, I think it's a fair response and it's actually not - I think there was some lost in translation quality to the way it was received, because I promise you there will be horror in these movies. It is our life goal to make a horror movie. The tricky part is actually how you combine horror with »

Scarlett Johansson Could Star In Universal’s Creature From The Black Lagoon Remake?

10 August 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Last summer Universal announced their intention to launch an Avengers-style Universe with its cadre of classic monsters. Dracula Untold was intended as a first step in that process, but the movie’s middling box-office and lukewarm critical reception seemed to halt further discussion of the endeavour. First impressions count for a lot in Hollywood, and the newly rebooted Drac’s wasn’t great.

However, it might not have been quite bad enough to tranquilize the concept permanently. The Tracking Board is reporting that Fringe show-runner Jeff Pinkner has been hired to pen to a remake of The Creature from the Black Lagoon, with Scarlett Johansson possibly attached to star. It’s not an unequivocal endorsement of the whole Monster Universe thing, but it’s certainly enough to make one reconsider its presumed cancellation.

Scarlett Johansson linked to Creature From The Black Lagoon remake

9 August 2015 10:40 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The new Creature From The Black Lagoon movie has also recruited The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Jeff Pinkner to rewrite the script...

It was reported some time ago now that Universal was looking to press ahead with a classic horror characters cinematic universe. We already know that a new take on The Mummy is high up the agenda, and now we hear of progress on a remake of Creature From The Black Lagoon.

Based around the idea of scientists looking for fossils on a trip up the Amazon river, Creature From The Black Lagoon sees them discover a half-human, half-fish character, who in turn falls for one of the female scientists on the expedition.

The role of said scientist has reportedly been offered to Scarlett Johansson, as Universal looks to move forward on the project. Furthermore, it's now hired The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Jeff Pinker to do a rewrite on the screenplay. »

29 July 2015 12:26 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Michael Keaton uncovers a massive sex abuse scandal in Boston's Catholic Church in the trailer for Spotlight.

Director Tom McCarthy's intense drama follows the Boston Globe's legendary investigative unit as it seeks to uncover systemic child abuse within the Church's clergy.

Academy Award nominee Keaton leads the so-called 'Spotlight' team as famed editor Robby Robinson, with Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams and Brian d'Arcy James as his team of dedicated journalists.

The Boston Globe's real-life coverage of the scandal earned the paper a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service 12 years ago.

The Station Agent filmmaker McCarthy worked with Josh Singer (Fringe) to adapt the gripping investigation for the big screen.

Spotlight bows on November 6 in the Us. A UK date has not yet been set. »

The Highly Anticipated Spotlight Gets A Trailer

29 July 2015 12:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Each year, a lot of filmmakers make a lot of movies. Some of them are noteworthy, some become celebrated award-winners, while a rare one or two enter into the annals of history – taking place alongside great works by artists such as Alan J. Pakula. Part of the fun is predicting which film – if any – will fall into the latter category, and this year, all eyes are on Spotlight.

It’s not an outlandish idea to compare the upcoming drama to Pakula’s legendary All The President’s Men, since the subject matter shares the theme of presenting a fictionalized account of some of the most important and remarkable journalism of the 20th century. Where Pakula’s Oscar winner focused on The Washington Post’s work on the Watergate scandal, Spotlight depicts the work of The Boston Globe in uncovering the Massachusetts Catholic sex abuse scandal of 2001.

Looking for news, casting, rumours and more about the next season of HBO's Game Of Thrones? Then you've come to the right place...

Latest news

This is news we were all expecting, but welcome nonetheless. After a season's absence, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, aka Bran Stark, will be returning in Game Of Thrones season 6. Presumably, that means catching up with Hodor and Meera, too.

The last we saw the second-to-youngest Stark boy, he had finally completed his quest to meet the Three-Eyed Raven and was about to begin another, a training journey with the Children of the Forest which would teach him more about his Warg powers.

Here's what Hempstead-Wright told The Irish Examiner about Bran's return to the show:

“I can’t say a lot but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions."
