The WGA’s master contract with Hollywood’s major studios is set to expire at midnight on Monday. If no new agreement is in place, striking writers could be marching with picket signs the next morning — instead of writing TV shows.
A writers strike would not mean that all television would suddenly be thrust into reruns. But some effects would be immediate, and a lengthy walkout could have a huge impact across the dial.
Late-night, where writers’ rooms are open year-round, would be the first television sector affected. “The Tonight Show,” “The Late Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Conan,” and “The Daily Show” would go dark immediately — though they might not stay dark for long. David Letterman, whose Worldwide Pants production company owned “Late Show” and “Late Late Show” a decade ago — cut a separate deal with the WGA that allowed him and Craig Ferguson to return to the air during the 2007-08 strike with their writing »

Although its ratings are still quite impressive, viewership for AMC's The Walking Dead dropped significantly throughout its seventh season. One of the common criticisms lobbed at the season as a whole was its poor pacing, but that's something which Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple says will be remedied in the eighth season. Gimple spoke with Entertainment Weekly and... Read More »

Right out of the gate, the China brothers’ noir-hearted sensibility was being compared to that of fellow film siblings Joel and Ethan Coen, as critics hailed the Australian writer-director duo’s debut “Crawl” as a modern-day “Blood Simple.” On the surface, their 2012 Black List-selected screenplay for “Sweet Virginia” dives further down that rabbit hole, featuring as it does a wife who hires a guy to bump off her own husband (a gender-flipped twist on the basic “Fargo” plot) and a hit man who’s as cold-blooded as “No Country for Old Men” killer Anton Chigurh.
And yet, going deep is what makes “Sweet Virginia” great — heck, more than great. As translated to screen by director Jamie M. Dagg (whose sure hand and smart changes elevate things considerably), Benjamin and Paul China’s script yields one of the gnarliest and most unsettling movies we’re likely to get this year. Set »

Virtual Reality could make Hollywood storytelling more exciting and involving than ever — but, yeah, vomiting is still a concern. At this week’s inaugural Vrtl Summit on the Paramount Pictures lot in Hollywood, participants agreed that there are valid concerns about how to keep viewers from getting sick. Despite advances in headsets like Samsung’s Gear Vr and Facebook’s Oculus Rift, users still get motion sickness in trials — which is especially troubling because some Vr projects last hours. “I remember coming out of the experience being nauseous,” David Alpert, CEO of Skybound Entertainment and executive producer of “The Walking Dead, »

AMC’s The Walking Dead has already built up an impressive roster of potential walker-fodder, and this past season, the mega popular zombie survival drama actually introduced four new communities in the Saviors, the Kingdom, Oceanside and the Junkyard folk. However, the nihilistic nature of the show means there’s always going to be new spots available, and it looks like a couple of main character positions are going to be filled for this upcoming eighth season.
According to TV Line, we’ll be meeting a pair of gentlemen named Dillon and Abbud, who will be siding with Rick and co. for the inevitable war with Negan and his Saviors. Here’s how the site describes the new duo:
Dillon, a sexy, blue-collar twentysomething whose survival skills include sarcasm, and Abbud, an innately likable Muslim American whose nerves are, let’s say, jangled, because he’s flown solo for too long in zombieland. »

For all of the excitement and nerve-wracking tension generated by The Walking Dead‘s season 7 premiere, it’s no secret that the remainder of the show’s most recent run fell victim to pacing issues, leading to AMC’s flagship posting some of its lowest ratings in four years.
Those numbers bounced back just as season 7 started to reach its bloody conclusion, but if you’re worried that the upcoming eighth season will repeat the same mistakes, don’t; showrunner Scott M. Gimple has assured viewers that season 8 will motor along at a “breakneck” pace. As Gimple revealed to Entertainment Weekly, that accelerated pacing largely comes down to the fact that the upcoming season of The Walking Dead will tout a “very different” structure to its forebears, one that will seemingly skirt around individual story arcs in favor of a more “kinetic” storytelling flow. Don’t be expecting too many »

The Walking Dead season 7 has recently concluded, but we are already hearing details regarding season 8. According to TVLine.com, we are getting two new characters next season.
“AMC’s monster smash is casting two new recurring good guys: Dillon, a sexy, blue-collar twentysomething whose survival skills include sarcasm, and Abbud, an innately likable Muslim American whose nerves are, let’s say, jangled, because he’s flown solo for too long in zombieland. Of the pair, the former is likelier to survive the looming conflict — not only does Dillon sound like a less jerky Spencer, but the casting notice for the roles hints that the actor chosen might get picked up for subsequent seasons.”
Readers of the comics will notice that these two characters are nowhere to be found. This isn’t surprising. After all, The Walking Dead TV series has deviated from the books since its first season. Let’s »

Right now The Walking Dead is one of the few shows that could be in serious immediate limbo if the Writer’s Guild of America strikes. However that hasn’t stopped cast members from posting images on social media or from the show itself giving details into season 8 which as of right now we have no clue when would begin. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Scott Gimple sat down and shed some light on season eight of The Walking Dead. “By virtue of the fact that the narrative has turned into one of pretty intense conflict, Gimple said. “It’s going
