Heathers Reboot Delayed in Wake of Florida School Shooting

Paramount Network is erring on the side of sensitivity and delaying the March 7 premiere of Heathers in the wake of this month’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead.

In a statement, the newly-rebraned network (fka Spike TV) said of the anticipated reboot: “Heathers is a satirical comedy that takes creative risks in dealing with many of society’s most challenging subjects ranging from personal identity to race and socio-economic status to gun violence. While we stand firmly behind the show, in light of the recent tragic events in Florida and out of respect for the victims,

‘Game Night’ Review: Dir. John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein (2018)

Game Night review: Undeniable side-splitting comedy, thrice-filtered through an outlandish, absurdist lens.

Game Night review by Matthew Ceo.

Game Night review

With the likes of Arrested Development‘s Jason Bateman and Spotlight‘s own Oscar-nominated Rachel McAdams leading the charge, Game Night features a veritable who’s who of comedic talent and establishes itself as a film far funnier than it has any right to be. The film follows an extremely competitive couple – Max and Annie – and their lifelong friends as they distract themselves from life’s problems with challenging bouts of checkers, serious games of scrabble, and meaningful charade tournaments when one thing reveals itself to be true: game night is sacred. So when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks – played by Manchester By The Sea‘s Kyle Chandler – comes to town and decidedly enters the fray, board games go out the window, and things get kicked up a notch.

Godless: Obsessed With Netflix's Western Series? We Have Bad News

  • BuzzSugar
Godless debuted Nov. 22 on Netflix as the streaming service's first foray into the Western genre - and if this one is any indication, the Netflix executives should now be looking for any Westerns they can get their hands on. Scott Frank's miniseries, starring Jeff Daniels, Michelle Dockery, Jack O'Connell, and Merritt Wever, is a beautifully shot story that plays out over seven episodes, fully taking advantage of not having to stuff all the plot into a feature-length film. Frank told Variety that he first wrote it as a film, but executive producer Steven Soderbergh (The Knick, The Girlfriend Experience) suggested that it might be better as a miniseries - and he was right. The seven-episode format really lets Frank establish the characters before moving them into confrontations with one another. The only question is, will we get more of Godless? RelatedThe Crown, Peaky Blinders, and 50 Other Titles Coming to Netflix in December Probably not.

Trailer Watch: A Line Is Crossed in “Mary Kills People” Season 2

“Mary Kills People”

Mary Harris believes in her work. “Death gives life meaning,” the secret euthanasia provider (Caroline Dhavernas, “Hannibal”) declares in the trailer for Season 2 of Lifetime’s “Mary Kills People.” “Life is precious because of it.”

So you can see why Mary is so shaken when Olivia Bloom (Rachelle Lefevre, “Under the Dome”) asks Mary to kill her perfectly healthy husband. “That’s not what I do,” Mary explains. “How old’s your youngest?” Olivia counters. “Around 12?” The implication is clear: either Mary kills Olivia’s spouse or Olivia will go after Mary’s family.

“It’s the line we don’t ever cross,” says Mary’s work partner, Des (Richard Short, “Vinyl”). They help the terminally ill die with dignity; they aren’t murderers for hire. “What other choice do we have?” Mary replies. She’s willing to cross any and every line in order to protect her daughters.

Alan Wake: gaming's greatest Stephen King story

Matthew Byrd Dec 21, 2017

Remedy's macabre masterpiece videogame, Alan Wake, is frighteningly close to a true Stephen King tale.

Lots of spoilers for Alan Wake lie ahead.

2010’s Alan Wake opens with these lines: “Stephen King once wrote that nightmares exist outside of logic and there's little fun to be had in explanations. They're antithetical to the poetry of fear.”

It’s rare to find a piece of entertainment that so openly boasts about its influences. Yes, we as consumers recognise when a title has been influenced by another work, but for creators, there is a value - whether tangible or perceived - to originality. After all, there's always a worry that the work that you do will be considered a "rip off" of something else.

It’s not exactly bold to proclaim that Alan Wake is like a Stephen King book in game form, especially when Remedy Entertainment has been

‘Zoo’ Canceled By CBS After Three Seasons

After three seasons, CBS summer drama series Zoo is coming to an end. Zoo‘s run matches that of CBS’ first summer drama series under the current business model, Under the Dome, with both going for three seasons. Never a critical darling, the campy Zoo got off a strong start, especially in total viewers, earning a second-season renewal. But its ratings have eroded year after year — most recently to 2.65 million viewers and a 0.51 in adults 18-49 (Live+same day) for this…

'Zoo' Canceled at CBS After 3 Seasons (Exclusive)

CBS is closing its Zoo.

The network has opted to cancel the summer scripted drama series starring James Wolk after three seasons.

Produced in-house at CBS Television Studios, the show was based on the best-seller by author/executive producer James Patterson about a wave of violent animal attacks against humans.

The model created the ability to do expensive scripted series in the typically little-watched...

‘Mr. Mercedes’: How to Adapt Stephen King for Television, From the Stars and Producers Who Did It Right

‘Mr. Mercedes’: How to Adapt Stephen King for Television, From the Stars and Producers Who Did It Right
Stephen King’s work should be a natural fit for modern television. Virtually unlimited time allows for every nuance of his novels to be carefully expressed, and gone are the small screen’s former content restrictions, which gave R-rated movies the edge back when broadcast TV was the only option.

But even so, there is still no guarantee a project will succeed with King’s name on it. Just this year, “The Mist” premiered on SyFy and was canceled after one critically-derided season, while “It” has become America’s highest-grossing horror film of all time. There’s no one way to adapt Stephen King. There’s just a right way and a wrong way.
