Penned by British writing partners Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (“Spooks,” Spooks: The Greater Good) and based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama “Real Humans,” the series explores the emotional impact that comes as the lines between humans and machines become increasingly blurred.

'Damien' Trailer: 'Omen' TV Show Brings Antichrist to AandE

12 May 2015 6:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few weeks after the upcoming TV series Damien went from Lifetime to A&E, the show's new network home has released the first trailer, giving us our first dark look at Damien Thorn, played by Bradley James (Merlin, Homeland).

Fox releases trailers for their 2015-2016 new show slate

12 May 2015 7:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With the 2014-2015 television season winding down, many television fans and channels are looking ahead to the new series that will make their debut over the next television season. Fox is no different, having announced their renewals, cancellations, and new series pickups over the last week, and the network has now released trailers for a number of their new series.

First up is the trailer for the new animated series Bordertown.

From Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann comes Bordertown, a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S. – Mexico border. The series takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, ethnic minorities will become the majority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the comedy explores family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink. Bordertown centers on two clans: the Buckwalds and the Gonzalezes. »

What would happen if Bradley James' 'iZombie' character ate his 'Damien' Antichrist's brains?

11 May 2015 9:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Bradley James is having his American-tv-By-Way-Of-Canada Moment.  You can't say that the British actor is poised on the brink of a breakout, because he spent five seasons as Prince-the-King Arthur on NBC and then Syfy's "Merlin," but this is a different sort of breakout that James is nearing. On The CW's "iZombie," James has been turning heads as Lowell, a still-mostly-potential love interest for Rose McIver's Liv. Like Liv, Lowell is an undead brain-eater, a character introduced only as a one-off but extended throughout the show's spring run. While "iZombie" still has us suspecting that Rob Buckley's Major is Liv's long-term love, Lowell has been offering ample and increased complication. It's too early to know what the plan is for Lowell through the end of the first "iZombie" season and into the freshly ordered second, but James may have ample complications himself.  James went from the Vancouver set of »

DC's 'Lucifer' TV Series Trailer Brings the Devil to Fox

11 May 2015 4:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the first Lucifer photo released over the weekend, Fox has debuted the first full trailer for this highly-anticipated series, based upon the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for DC Entertainment's Vertigo imprint. When Lucifer debuts in midseason next year, it will be Fox's second DC Comics series, following Gotham, which returns for its second season this fall. However, Lucifer doesn't appear to be your typical comic book show, at first glance.

iZombie's Bradley James on Lowell and Liv's (Doomed?) Romance, Blaine Link

11 May 2015 3:14 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If iZombie‘s cliffhanger ending last week left you worried about the state of Lowell and Liv’s relationship, you are perfectly justified in your concern.

After discovering that baddie Blaine is her beau’s brain dealer, this Tuesday’s episode (The CW, 9/8c) brings an even more disturbing revelation for Liv: “Lowell and Blaine are old friends,” actor Bradley James tells TVLine, so perhaps his girlfriend should have expected this twist. After all, “The zombie community, I don’t think it’s that large,” James adds.

This review contains spoilers.

2.11 Kin

In this week's episode, a frustrated Pasiphae is awaiting news of the fugitives, still intent on killing Jason, though Medea warns that Jason may be the perfect ally - his heart has been darkened by the truth, and she feels he’s ready to be brought across to their way of thinking and all that may entail.

What next for Saturday night UK family drama?

2 May 2015 5:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Primeval to Merlin and Atlantis, Doctor Who's return spawned a host of Saturday teatime dramas that have since disappeared. What next?

It’s Saturday night. BBC 1 is showing Doctor Who. It does this a lot, generally speaking, and has done on and off (sometimes very off) for over fifty years. When the show returned in 2005 it brought with it the realisation that there was a huge family audience un-catered for on Saturday nights, and unfortunately Doctor Who was only on air for a quarter of the year, so it couldn’t do it all by itself.

ITV quickly realised it needed to attract that audience too, and while it had gameshows that dominated the schedules it didn’t have anything like Buck Rogers In The 25th Century or The A Team to put up against the BBC this time. And time was of the essence: new shows had »

The Omen series Damien is moving from Lifetime to sister network A&E

29 April 2015 7:03 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Those seeking a scare from The Omen's new TV sequel will have to change channels, as A&E will now show the series when it debuts.

Sister network Lifetime was original due to broadcast Damien later this year, but bosses have decided it's better aligned to A&E's tastes.

"A&E's unwavering commitment to high quality original scripted drama programming, coupled with the sizable fanbase for our hit series Bates Motel, which so perfectly aligns with Damien, make the network the ideal fit for this exceptional show," said Rob Sharenow, executive vice president and general manager of both networks.

"We are thrilled with what we've seen so far and know that Glen [Mazzara] and the creative team have even more story to tell in season one."

What's more, the network has also increased its order from six episodes to ten episodes.

A&E continues to become a small screen horror hub. Not long after the network announced they are moving forward on a TV series adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist's world-renowned Sweden-set vampire novel, Let the Right One In, A&E has now revealed that they will air The Omen sequel series, Damien.

Great TV and film for St George's Day on Netflix

22 April 2015 6:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

St Patrick's Day gets a lot of love, what with all the pub going and the Guinness drinking. In comparison, England's St George's Day tends to be a much more low-key affair, but there is a benefit to this: an evening free to catch up on some great TV.

To celebrate dragon slaying and all the other things that make our country great, we've put together a list of the best films and television shows from the UK available to watch on Netflix right now:

Sherlock

Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have redefined Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary detective for the 21st century.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have both been heaped with praise for their roles as the dynamic duo of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, in stories that bring a modern twist to the classic mysteries.

Doctor Who

Digital Spy readers hardly need us to list the virtues of Doctor Who. »

That sinking feeling: the creators of Atlantis on where it went wrong

21 April 2015 4:49 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The prime-time drama was axed by the BBC during its second series. Here, Atlantis star Jack Donnelly and co-writer Johnny Capps discuss what worked, what they might have done differently, and where the show would have gone if it hadn’t been cancelled

Earlier this year, the BBC announced it was axing Saturday-night drama Atlantis – a shock to fans. But after only one full series (it was cancelled halfway through its second), the decision seemed premature: was the show given a fighting chance? Atlantis co-writer Johnny Capps (whose credits include Merlin and Hex) and star Jack Donnelly, who plays Jason, talk about where it all went wrong.

Although Atlantis was axed, it did have a strong fan base. What were its strengths?

Dinosaurs kill for sport in new trailer and posters for Jurassic World with Chris Pratt

20 April 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

“Life finds a way,” and according to the first global trailer for Jurassic World, it’s going to be Chris Pratt’s way.

Owen (Pratt) appears to be something of a dinosaur whisperer, the of-the-Earth Everyman to Bryce Dallas Howard’s button-downed scientist, Beth.

Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, John Hammond’s park is finally open. While visitors flock to the prehistoric-themed park as if it were a very elaborate zoo, Owen and Beth discover a huge problem with their newest attraction, Indominus rex.

The genetically modified mutant dinosaur is killing for sport, and humans are the next targets in the creature’s deadly rampage.

Fingers-crossed that, between Owen’s brawn and Beth’s brain, they can stop the Indominus rex – or else there will be a lot of unhappy (possibly dead) Jurassic Park visitors.

Jurassic World also stars Vincent D’Onofrio (“Law & Order”), Jake Johnson (“New Girl »
