“Shadowhunters” is based on Cassandra Clare’s “Mortal Instruments” books. It follows Clary Fray (“Happyland” and “The Fosters’” Katherine McNamara), a teenager who learns that she is descended from a long line of the titular human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. When her mother is kidnapped, Clary must embrace her destiny and accept that the world is full of faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves.
The cast also includes Dominic Sherwood as the narcissistic and “lethally gorgeous” bad boy Shadowhunter Jace, Alberto Rosende as Clary’s best friend Simon, and Emeraude Toubia as the beautiful and well-trained Shadowhunter Isabelle. “Glee” actor Harry Shum Jr. will play an ancient and eccentric warlock named Magnus »

When Being Human was cancelled after five series, fans of the show were naturally dejected.
It’s to be expected, then, that the show’s creator Toby Whithouse will face regular questions over the possibility of bringing the show back.
The discussion reopened recently, with Whithouse asked for an update over two years after the show was stopped.
He told BBC Writersroom: "We all know shows that have outstayed their welcome, or been cynically resurrected. And no one would thank me – least of all the Being Human fans – if I went back with anything other than a stunning and revolutionary idea."
"Anything less would demean the show. And I haven’t had that idea," he added.
So, don’t expect the show to return any time soon. If Mr Whithouse's stance ever changes, »
In an interview for BBC Writersroom, Whithouse appeared to play down the possibility of resurrecting the supernatural BBC Three series.
"We all know shows that have outstayed their welcome, or been cynically resurrected," he said.
"No-one would thank me - least of all the Being Human fans - if I went back with anything other than a stunning and revolutionary idea. Anything less would demean the show. And I haven't had that idea."
Being Human - a drama about a ghost, a werewolf and a vampire attempting to lead normal lives - aired five series on BBC Three between 2008 and 2013.

Doctor Who is the persistent subject of rumours - from the credible to the outright absurd - and it can be difficult to separate what's fact from what's fiction.
Lucky for you, dear reader, that Digital Spy is on hand to cut a swathe through the nonsense - these are the facts, 100% confirmed, about series 9 of the world's greatest science-fiction series.
Filming began on the 9th series of Doctor Who - its 35th run overall - on January 5, 2015 for a planned transmission in the autumn. Steven Moffat will serve as lead writer and executive producer for the fifth time.
Coleman was widely expected to be leaving the series in the 2014 Christmas special - and indeed had planned to exit - »
Press Release (via TV By the Numbers) -- New York, NY – May 14, 2015 – "AMC today announced its new eight-part drama series “Humans” will premiere Sunday, June 28th at 9:00 p.m. Et/Pt. Set in suburban London, “Humans” takes place in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a Synth – a highly developed, artificially intelligent servant eerily similar to its living counterpart. 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. This bold new series is produced in conjunction with the »

Wrapping up its most watched season in seven years, The CW Network presented its 2015-16 broadcast schedule today to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City. The indie-pop band Of Monsters and Men kicked off the presentation with a live performance of their latest single "Crystals," and their international hit song "Little Talks." Here's what CW's Mark Pedowitz had to say in a statement.
"This has been a terrific season for The CW, and is a result of a strategy we set in motion a few years ago to broaden out and grow our audience. We had our most watched season, and our highest-rated season among men, in seven years. We launched The CW's most watched series ever with The Flash, and with The Flash and Jane the Virgin, we received more critical acclaim than ever before. The CW is heading into »
Hughes told Metro that he hopes BBC Two will recommission the series, in which he stars as MI5 operative Joe Lambe.
"There's definitely more layers to peel away," he said. "I think audiences have become more sophisticated and don't expect everything right away - it's like Don Draper in Mad Men, we only got to know him gradually."
Its third episode airs this Thursday (May 14) at 9pm.

Detectorists: Will series 2 move from BBC Four to a new channel? »
This silly and anarchic BBC3 blooper sees TV personalities crack a homicide alongside a cast of not-so-famous, farcical faces
“‘Youth” channel BBC3 is hurtling towards its online-only fate in January 2016. It’s already lost its big acquisition, Family Guy, to ITV2 and there’s been talk of one of the true jewels in its crown, Don’t Tell the Bride, setting up home on one of its bigger siblings. This means the days of flicking and accidentally chancing upon something like Being Human, or In the Flesh, or a surprisingly incisive documentary about young people and mental health, for example, will be gone. To watch BBC3, you will have to make a concerted effort, and it is unlikely that great swaths of viewers will do that. Its new comedy Murder in Successville, a truly bizarre concoction of genres and ideas, reinforces the sense that this is a real shame.
Murder in Successville is ridiculous. »

Call it as the after effects or whatsoever, one just cannot deny the fact that the after the arrest of Salman Khan, there had to be many repercussions which were simply waiting to happen. While on the emotional front, there were many hearts broken and bleeding, but, on the financial front, it was worse. The shares of Mandhana went down by 5 percent (intraday) today after Salman Khan was pronounced guilty in the 2002 hit-and-run case. For the uninitiated, Mandhana Industries has an exclusive license agreement with 'Being Human- the Salman Khan Foundation' - for their designing, marketing and distribution of the 'Being Human' clothing. On the other hand, even the shares of Eros International Media fell by 7 percent, because it has the global distribution rights of Salman Khan's to-be-released films Bajrangi Bhaijaan and his production Hero. »
With the Sessions court verdict out for the hit-and-run case, as per the reports, wherein the Bollywood superstar Salman Khan might face upto 10 years of jail, it has kind of sent a shock wave in the industry! And why not? After all Salman is one of the most influential celebrities of Bollywood around, who has the power to turnaround almost anything. Though the Sessions court has given its judgement over the 12-year old case, the star may appeal to higher court. While the final decision is still awaited as to whether Salman will face the jail sentence or not, we take a look at how it will impact the industry overall (if he ever faces the jail term).
Box-office business:Since the superstar is known for churning out blockbusters and money-spinners and has reportedly an estimated Rs. 300 crore riding on his films already, we wonder how much impact it will have on Box-office business, »
Two episodes were provided for review purposes prior to broadcast.
Maori myth is at the heart of Tatau, BBC America’s curiously trippy new drama about two British tourists who become embroiled in a maze of hallucinatory visions, murder plots and local secrets while vacationing in the Cook Islands. It’s an intriguing and unusual subject for the channel to tackle, and the resultant oddness of the show as a whole is what immediately sets it apart from the network’s previous supernatural dramas In the Flesh and Being Human (though Tatau, with its photogenic cast and fast-paced plot, is certainly geared toward the same teenage demographic).
Whether the show’s peculiarity will make it something truly worth watching down the road, though, is a question unanswered after the uneven first two episodes. The pilot is really an extended intro for leads Kyle (Joe Layton) and Budgie (Theo Barklem-Biggs), twentysomething »

As this chat with Tatau’s lead actors, Joe Layton and Theo Barklem-Biggs, took place before the press screening for BBC Three’s new supernatural drama, the pair were given the responsibility of describing the series to me: Unique. Mysterious. Fast-paced. Energy-fuelled. A hurricane. A typhoon. (Before long, they're just listing weather systems.)
“It’s a teen show, accessible for young people” cuts in Barklem-Biggs as his co-star brings up the otherworldly, occult palette of True Detective, “even around all this darkness there will be moments that make you laugh as well. It keeps you on the edge of your seat.”
Layton gets back on message and agrees, “I think it really suits BBC Three.”
That it does, as a youth-oriented story of two twenty-something backpackers, Kyle and Budgie, »
Till date we have only seen Bollywood superstars Aamir Khan and Salman Khan promoting each other's movies or singing praises of each other, but for the first time the duo has shared the same platform for a common cause, i.e. Mumbai Development.
Earlier, we witnessed Salman Khan promoting Aamir Khan's movie Dhoom:3 by wearing the famous hat on a celebrity reality show, and Aamir Khan did the same by posting about Salman Khan's Jai Ho on a micro-blogging site.
While both Salman and Aamir are associated with social causes individually already, as Salman owns a charity named Being Human, Aamir Khan has promoted social causes through his TV show, it was great to see the two coming together for a common cause.
When a new series comes along that boasts being from the creators of Veronica Mars (among other things it boasts about), that will pull in audiences, but it also sets itself up for a difficult time living up to expectations.
iZombie, the new… criminal investigation meets, well, zombies… show from the CW has a lot to recommend, even just in the theory, but it has to really wow to deliver on the hopes of those who are going to bother to tune in for something called iZombie, and it does.
Rose McIver stars as Liv Moore (ha), a type-a medical student who finds herself turned into a zombie at a boat-party gone wrong. Without a lot of options for procuring brains, she takes a job at the city morgue. Her boss, Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli), has caught on, and finally catches her in the act of brain consumption, but »

Elena who? Bonnie and Caroline are the undeniable stars of The Vampires deliciously unpredictable season 6, as this week's episode shows...
This review contains spoilers.
6.17 A Bird In A Gilded Cage
Once things with The Vampire Diaries' sixth season wrap, let the records show that it was the year of Bonnie Bennett and Caroline Forbes. Anyone tuning in for the first time would seriously not realise that Elena Gilbert was the girl around which the first five seasons of the show had revolved, and it's the better for it.
It's also completely unprecedented that it would be Stefan and Caroline, the show's two most moral characters, who would be the bad guys while Damon and Bonnie set about fixing the world's problems. It's all a bit crazy to comprehend for those of us who remember the old days, but it's also a thrill to be able to watch The Vampire Diaries »
The world of Doctor Who has changed greatly in the space of just 10 years. The cast and crew have almost completely been replaced since 2005, including a number of new actors to play the errant Time Lord and his companions.
But what has happened to the class of '05? Where are Rose and Mickey now? What is the writer of 'Dalek' up to? And where can you see more work from the director of 'Rose'?
Here it is then, your guide to the main players of Doctor Who series one.
After his three-month on-screen stint as the Doctor, Christopher Eccleston's career continued in much the same vein, taking in theatre, interesting television roles and the odd blockbuster.
When it comes to charity and lending their names to social causes, many Bollywood celebrities have come out in support and have given their fair share at fund raising campaigns and donations. While Salman Khan's contribution towards the social causes (through 'Being Human') and 'impromptu help' is very well known, it seems that yet another superstar, Akshay Kumar has adopted a different route.
Akshay will now be seen auctioning his personal items (like his wardrobe and personal accessories) in order to raise funds for a Ngo that has been working for the benefit of orphan children. He will be doing so on the yet-to-be-launched home- shopping channel named 'Best Deals TV'.
Speaking about the same, Raj Kundra (who owns the channel alongwith his wife Shilpa Shetty, Akshay and Sonakshi Sinha), said that Akshay's initiative will be taking off on the channel during April. He added that, if they get a favourable response, »
The story follows three bounty hunters who've been hired by a high ranking Senator to retrieve his teenage daughter who’s run off to join a mysterious and ultra-wealthy religious cult who are living on the moon of Ganymede. When they arrive there, they learn something has gone horribly wrong.
Iconic horror director Wes Craven will team with Niles on a TV series adaptation of the property which Black Mask Studios publishes in May. Craven will executive produce but is not writing or directing at this stage. Niles, Matt Pizzolo and Brett Gurewitz will also executive produce.

The 33-year-old explained that he likes watching the ITVBe programme as it's good research as an actor.
Another fight erupts on the set of Towie, stars pulled apart by staff
The Banished star told Heat magazine: "I am obsessed with Towie. I love it.
"I watched the new series the other night. I love Chloe Sims just having a go at everyone.
"People who don't like it and think that it depicts Essex in a bad way, this is just about a certain group of people, not everyone who comes from Essex. But I totally love the show anyway."
He continued: "There was a scene the other night where she was talking to Ferne [McCann] about losing her baby - that was a genuine moment caught on camera.
"That's why I love the show so much. As an actor, »

6.16 The Downward Spiral
There was a point some time between seasons two and three (possibly four) of The Vampire Diaries when things just stopped being fun. It was still crazy and melodramatic and frequently ridiculous, but not any of those things to the same level. We were stuck with a love triangle that wasn't going anywhere, characters too big for what the show was able to give them (Klaus, Katherine etc.) and too many dead ends to count.
Season six threw all of that out and decided to get back to that wacky, absurd fun that made us all fall in love with the series in the first place, and this episode – The Downward Spiral – might be the best example yet of that coming to fruition. »
