Reboots on the Way: “Charmed,” “Cagney and Lacey,” and “Greatest American Hero”

“Cagney & Lacey”

“First Wives Club,” “Nancy Drew,” “Roswell” — it’s hard to keep up with all of the TV reboots in the works. In the past few days alone we’ve seen reports about three series getting a second lease on life: “Charmed,” “Cagney and Lacey,” and “The Greatest American Hero.” All of the projects are being written by women.

Charmed” scored a pilot order from The CW, Entertainment Weekly confirms. When the project was first announced by the network, the supernatural show was going to return as a prequel set in the ’70s. That’s no longer the case. Now set in the present day, the new “Charmed” is described by The CW as “fierce, funny, [and] feminist,” and “centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.

Trailer Watch: Zosia Mamet May Fall for “The Boy Downstairs”

“The Boy Downstairs”

“Why is it a crime to want to be friends with your ex-boyfriend?” 20-something writer Diana (Zosia Mamet) casually asks. Friendship seems like a necessary route — especially when she realizes that said ex-boyfriend (Matthew Shear) is coincidentally her new downstairs neighbor.

Written and directed by Sophie Brooks, “The Boy Downstairs” follows Diana as she moves back to New York City following some time abroad. Looking for a fresh start, she finds an apartment in Brooklyn that inadvertently reconnects her with ex-boyfriend Ben. Prior to the film’s Tribeca Film Festival premiere, Brooks told Women and Hollywood that “this close proximity makes her reexamine a relationship she thought was in the past.”

As the new trailer suggests, this forces her to reexamine herself, too. Brooks hopes that, overall, this quirky and relatable film leaves people “feeling inspired to be a little braver in love and life.”

Why Fox's '9-1-1' Isn't Your Typical TV Procedural

Fox’s 9-1-1 is throwing out the rulebook.

On paper, Ryan Murphy’s newest show has all the ingredients of the tried-and-true formula of a television procedural following the Los Angeles police force, firefighters, dispatchers and first responders. Only after watching the first few minutes do you realize it’s anything but that.

Led by an A-list trifecta with Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Connie Britton,9-1-1 puts a twist on the classic procedural trope, structuring its stories in a way where viewers follow the relatively separate worlds in which each lead character lives -- Bassett as Detective Athena Grant, Krause as Fire Captain Bobby Nash and Britton as 911 operator Abby Clark -- with the occasional group interaction sprinkled in as the tale necessitates. As executive producer Brad Falchuk, Murphy’s longtime collaborator, tells it, the show’s unique format was the selling point.

“Audiences have become very sophisticated -- the cable audience certainly has -- and

‘9-1-1’ Review: Peter Krause Wrestles Snakes and Connie Britton Negs Chicken Nuggets in Very Bad Fox Drama

‘9-1-1’ Review: Peter Krause Wrestles Snakes and Connie Britton Negs Chicken Nuggets in Very Bad Fox Drama
Years from now, when “911” is just a number people dial in anger after McDonald’s stiffs them three chicken nuggets in their happy meal, someone should sit down with Golden Globe nominee Peter Krause and ask him what it was like delivering the line, “You can’t punch it in the face, Buck — it’s a snake!” After all, it’s not every day the star of “Six Feet Under” and “Parenthood” would be asked to say something so ridiculous, let alone do so with the straight face and determined demeanor of a blue-blooded American hero.

Was that the moment he knew something was amiss in Ryan Murphy’s prestigious new procedural? Did it feel as strange to act in the scene as it is to watch it unfold? Did Krause and co-star Aisha Hinds exchange a look during the shoot, telepathically communicating, “We did great things once. You gave

‘Mom and Dad’ Trailer: The Director of ‘Crank’ Made A Film Where Psycho Nicolas Cage Wants to Murder His Kids
Nicolas Cage is still making movies, and at this point it appears he’s just trying to top himself when it comes to ridiculously insane movie premises.

The actor’s latest, “Mom and Dad,” is set in a world where parents have turned against their children. Cage and Selma Blair play a married couple who refuse to protect their children from the bloodshed and hunt them down to kill them. Think “Parenthood” meets the “The Purge.”

Mom and Dad” is directed and written by Brian Taylor, best known as the co-director of the Jason Statham-starring “Crank” films. The film definitely follows in the manic and violent footsteps of those movies.

From ‘Citizen Kane’ to ‘The Post,’ a History of Newspaper Movie Scores

From ‘Citizen Kane’ to ‘The Post,’ a History of Newspaper Movie Scores
When Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” opens on Friday, John Williams will join an exclusive club: that handful of composers who have successfully tackled one of the most difficult genres to score: the newspaper movie.

The Post” is Williams’ 28th film for the director and could, when the Oscar nominations are announced a month from now, become his 51st. He already has five Academy Awards and is the most-nominated living person.

In general, composers say, newspaper movies are tough assignments. First, they tend to be verbose and expository; and second, they are often as objective as the journalists they depict, and manipulative music may seem out of place. Yet, over the years, some have produced compelling music to complement powerful dialogue.

Orson Welles’ “Citizen Kane” (1941) was the first film score to composed by the legendary Bernard Herrmann, who had spent much of the previous decade working with Welles in radio. Here, the Boston Pops
