Things Get A Little Crazy In The First Trailer For Marvel And FX’s Legion

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a big day for superhero movie trailers from DC, but Marvel has now countered that with the first preview of upcoming FX TV series Legion. To say it looks unique would be an understatement, and while this trippy teaser doesn’t exactly make it clear what we should expect in terms of the story, it definitely promises a pretty fun time.

Set to debut in early 2017, Legion focuses on a troubled young man who may be more than human. It introduces the story of David Haller, who since he was a teenager, has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.

Broadcast TV Networks Broaden Digital Offerings, But Worry About Core Businesses

21 July 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Television has migrated, not just beyond the living room, but out the front door. Meanwhile, the TV industry — particularly broadcast — has struggled to adapt to consumer demand for an experience that isn’t tied to the set-top box. But recent moves indicate that broadcasters are making progress. Such steps may not satisfy customer appetites, though; in fact, they may exacerbate some problems.

Fox said July 11 that it would begin live-streaming its primetime entertainment programming across all 210 U.S. local TV markets — becoming the first broadcaster to do so.

Two days later, ABC relaunched its free streaming service, expanding its live offering to an additional 14 local markets and unveiling original short-form series from talent such as Ty Burrell, Michelle Collins, and Iliza Shlesinger. “We felt like we saw an opportunity to expand our storytelling beyond the bounds of our linear schedule,” says Karin Gilford, senior VP of digital media for ABC Television Network.

‘Don’t Think Twice’ Star Keegan-Michael Key On How To Tackle Comedy In This Divisive Political Climate – Q&A

20 July 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For nearly two decades, Keegan-Michael Key has been tirelessly chiseling out a successful path in comedy. Name a standout sitcom from “Reno 911” to “How I Met Your Mother,” “Parks and Recreation” to “It’s Always Philadelphia,” “Modern Family,” “The Muppets” or “Ricky and Morty,” and Key has popped by to add his hilarious flare. The path began back in 2004 when he was cast on “MADtv,” and eventually led to he and castmate Jordan Peele spawning their own sketch show, the critically heralded and sharply satirical “Key and Peele.”

Through all of the above, Key has shown himself to be one of the boldest and most entertaining comedy performers working today. But in his new film, “Don’t Think Twice,” the funny man smoothly slides into drama. Which turns out to be an important next step for the challenge Key’s looking to take on next.

Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season One Heading to Behead you on August 23rd

18 July 2016 8:39 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

While we’re all anxiously waiting for the second season of Starz’ Ash Vs. Evil Dead to arrive this fall, the gang over at Anchor Bay is sending the Epic first season your way, when it hits DVD/Bluray on August 23rd! After the cliffhanger-like finale of season one, I for one, am both excited and on the edge of my seat, waiting for the continuation of the series, this upcoming seasons featuring Lee Majors (!) playing Ash’s father!

Campbell reprises his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons – personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.

Interview: Co-Writer Katie Dippold Discusses Rebooting ‘Ghostbusters’

18 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Paul Feig and Katie Dippold first met around seven years ago. Dippold was writing for Parks and Recreation at the time when Feig directed “Pawnee Zoo,” the episode in which Leslie Knope arranges a wedding between two male penguins. Years later, when Dippold was hoping Feig would direct a spec script she wrote, titled The Heat, the two met for lunch. […]

Ghostbusters review – a misfiring remake

17 July 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Despite a brilliant cast, this all-female reboot fails to deliver the gag power of the original. However, it’s hardly the disaster the trolls have been predicting

When word first broke about a female-led reboot of Ivan Reitman’s 1984 fantasy-comedy Ghostbusters, the internet reacted with a stream of sexist bile more foul than the slimy green ectoplasm spewed up by an angry demon. Like the shrieking anger that greeted news that 2014’s Annie would have an African American star, Ghostbusters 2016 became the focus of hostility born of prejudice and disguised as reverence for the source material. And as with Will Gluck’s flawed but serviceable musical (which I enjoyed more than many), it would have been great to report that the finished film is good enough to shut the bigoted naysayers up once and for all.

The harsh truth is that it isn’t – at least, not quite. Although infinitely »

Ask Alan: Why was there never an 'Office'/'Parks and Recreation' crossover?

15 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Happy Friday, everybody! Time for a new installment of Ask Alan, where I discuss fictional products I could potentially bring into the real world, whether there was ever any talk of a 'Parks and Rec'/'Office' crossover, and the best sports-themed episode of a non-sports TV show. Oh, and another blooper that didn't get edited out. Enjoy. As always, the video's embedded at the top and bottom of the post, and you can send new questions to askalan@hitfix.com »

Stream this in the summer: 'Halt and Catch Fire'

14 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In my early days on the beat, NBC had an ad campaign encouraging people to watch summer reruns, promising, "If you haven't seen it, it's new to you!" In the age of Peak TV, that slogan seems less cynical than accurate. The rise of streaming services have put the bulk of TV history only a click or two away, which means that people are constantly discovering The Wire, or Arrested Development, or Terriers (sigh) for the very first time. In lieu of a summer rewind this year, I wanted to offer up primers of shows you can stream, whether an older series available in full or something current you can catch up on before its next season begins. Last week, I did one of the former by extolling the virtues of the CW's musical comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and while I intend to get to some vintage stuff soon, I wanted »

Emmy Predictions, Comedy: Broadcast TV Tries Desperately to Hang On

13 July 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Past nominees “30 Rock,” “Parks and Recreation” went off the air in recent years. “Louie” is on hiatus and didn’t air during the 2015-2016 TV season. “The Big Bang Theory” dropped out of the top category last year after four straight nominations. A slew of acclaimed new comedies lurk, ready to crash the party. In theory, the Emmys’ comedy categories should be ready for change. But as we know, change comes slowly to voters in the Television Academy, so one must tread carefully when making Emmy predictions in comedy. Still, we expect to find a few new faces in the mix. »

The Leftovers star Carrie Coon joins Fargo season 3

12 July 2016 8:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The cast for the third season of FX’s Fargo is starting to come together, as TV Line recently revealed the news that The Leftovers actress Carrie Coon has landed the female lead role opposite The Impossible and Beauty and the Beast actor Ewan McGregor. While McGregor will portray a set of twins, Emmit and Ray Stussy, Coon’s character will be that of Gloria Burgle, “a practical woman who grabs the fire extinguisher when the bacon catches fire and everyone else panics.”

Showrunner Noah Hawley previously announced that the new season, which is the most modern yet, would take place in the year 2010; seasons 1 and 2 took place in 2006 and 1979, respectively. Setting the show during this decade sounds like it will affect how Coon’s Gloria operates, as the rest of the character description mentions that she is the “chief of police in Edna Valley and a newly divorced mother »

Six Ideas for ‘Hamilton’ TV Spinoffs

12 July 2016 2:46 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Now that creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda, along with actors Leslie Odom Jr. and Phillipa Soo, have left the Broadway hit “Hamilton,” the show’s producers get to find out if the story of Alexander Hamilton has staying power beyond the appeal of the original cast. Of course, there’s every indication that the show will do — and is doing — just fine, despite those departures. The musical, which recently won 11 Tony Awards, remains sold out for months in advance, and tickets for a production opening in Chicago in the fall have been selling at a brisk clip. A touring show — with a different cast than that of the Chicago “Hamilton,” which will stay put — is also in the works, as is an upcoming London edition. 

Of course the rest of the show’s cast and members of the public were sad that Miranda, to quote one of the show’s lyrics, had »

Emmys 2016: the predicted nominees in all the major races

12 July 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Yes, Game of Thrones and Veep are sure to get a heap of nominations, but how many will The People v Oj Simpson get – and which newer faces will we see?

Getting a nomination at the Emmys is sort of like getting a tenured position at university – in order for a place to open up, someone has to retire. There are shows that have a lock on the categories, even though they’ve had weak years or are now in their dotage. This year, with Mad Men, Parks and Recreation and Louie all out of contention, there are a few spots open in the comedy and drama races, so who might be able to step up to the plate?

11 July 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With all the talk of Peak TV, it’s possible we’ve reached a turning point for the Emmy Awards. Could this be the year the TV Academy makes some bold out-of-the-box choices and recognizes just how wide-ranging the past season’s TV achievements actually were? We’re not betting on it. When it comes to the Emmy Awards, the tried-and-true typically carry the day — with a modest mix of new faces sprinkled in. That’s why you may get a feeling of deja vu reading our predictions for this year’s nominees. We’ll find out who makes the cut when nominations are announced on Thursday, July 14 at 8:30 a.m. Pt.

San Diego Comic-Con 2016: Your Complete Guide

In 1971, the 300-or-so people pawing through cardboard boxes of dusty comic books couldn't have possibly imagined that they were standing in what would become the cradle of nerd civilization. From a small meetup for diehard geeks, San Diego Comic-Con has grown into one of the largest and most feverishly anticipated pop-cultural events of the year. Thousands upon thousands of industry types, journalists, the devout faithful (and the suckers they've handsomely paid to stand in line as proxies) and cosplaying fans of all stripes will descend upon the city from July »

Inside Lin-Manuel Miranda's Final Hamilton Performance and His Celeb-Filled Afterparty

10 July 2016 7:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Lin-Manuel Miranda made his entrance during the opening number of his history-making musical Hamilton on Saturday night, he received a one-minute standing ovation, with applause so loud it nearly brought the house down. This wasn't just any performance for the 36-year-old actor, who also penned the show's music, lyrics and book. It was his last in the title role of Alexander Hamilton. Miranda left the production - as did original cast members Leslie Odom, Jr., Phillipa Soo and Ariana DeBose - after being with the musical since its off-Broadway run at New York's Public Theater last winter.
