ABC’s Members Only Casts Tomorrow People’s Luke Mitchell

11 July 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A couple days ago we reported that The Tomorrow People‘s Robbie Amell had found a new home on the CW’s high anticipated fall series, The Flash, and now another former Tomorrow People star has also moved on – even if fans have not. Luke Mitchell, who played John Young on the short-lived CW supernatural drama, has just been cast in ABC’s mid-season drama series, Members Only.

The new show, formerly titled The Club, will center around a private country club. Mitchell will play Jesse, a character from the wrong side of the tracks who was recently employed at the club and although he’ll appears to be a little rough around the edges, he actually has his life together.

Along with Mitchell, Members Only stars Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), Boris Kodjoe (Undercovers), Callie Hernandez (From Dusk Till Dawn), Chris Conroy, and newly cast Jaime Lee Kirchner (Mercy). Kirchner »

5 traits of a Jj Abrams-produced TV show

23 March 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Rob Kemp 24 Mar 2014 - 07:00

As new drama Believe arrives in the UK, Rob charts the 5 traits shared by Jj Abrams-produced shows, from Lost, to Alias, Fringe & more…

Jj Abrams is arguably one of the most successful TV producers of recent times. A bold statement, maybe, but a rundown of his series feels like a name check of some of the greatest genre TV of the past couple of decades. Success though, can be a funny attribute to understand – after all, if we knew what it took to be successful, we’d all be doing it.

With Abrams it could be one thing, or many. It could be his love of fantasy, the way he casts or just an understanding of what an audience wants – a good, interesting and exciting story. There is something however, that we might agree on and it’s that his shows have something »

Believe Series Premiere Review: “Pilot” (Season 1, Episode 1)

11 March 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón are two of the most exciting and respected filmmakers working today, and their names are often seen as an undeniable sign of quality. Abrams is known for being behind some of the most unique and mythology-heavy television shows of the last decade (Alias, Lost, and Fringe, to name a few), while Cuarón is recognized for his incredible filmography and that nice golden Best Director Oscar that now sits on his shelf for Gravity. So, when it was announced that the duo would be teaming up to produce a show on NBC called Believe, fans of the filmmakers were, as expected, incredibly excited.

Granted, Abrams’ name is often attached to projects that the man himself has little to do with. Often, his production company Bad Robot does most of the legwork, while his name is merely used to sell audiences on the prospect of high-concept television shows. »

'Believe': J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuaron create families under fantastical circumstances

10 March 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

One theme that runs through much of J.J. Abrams' work as a writer and producer is family, from the ad hoc families of the college students on "Felicity" and the castaways of "Lost" to the father-daughter drama of "Alias," the husband-wife drama of "Undercovers" and the father-son drama of "Fringe."

Whatever situation the characters land in - and some of these shows have very fantastical premises -- the core of the story is people struggling with, or forming, close family bonds.

Expect more of the same when Abrams' latest project, "Believe," premieres Monday, March 10, on NBC. Created by Alfonso Cuaron ("Gravity") and Mark Friedman for Abrams' Bad Robot Productions -- with Jonas Pate and Hans Tobeason as the current showrunners -- it centers on 10-year-old Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), a precocious girl who was also born with a range of unusual powers, including levitation, telekinesis and precognition.

Review: Alfonso Cuarón directs NBC's 'Believe'

10 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There was a period after the instant, explosive success of "Lost" where J.J. Abrams seemed to be creating every new drama on television. I say "seemed to" because in most of those cases, these shows — "Six Degrees," "What About Brian" and "Alcatraz," among others — were shows from Abrams' production company that traded on his name in their marketing, but didn't have him around as any kind of hands-on creative force. Every now and again he might actually co-write or direct one of the pilots with his name on it (for the short-lived "Undercovers," he did both), but Abrams often seems to be most useful simply using his muscle to get shows on the air, and then as a hook to use in marketing. Some of these shows last a while — "Fringe" went five seasons, and "Person of Interest" and "Revolution" are still around — while others have demonstrated the limits of »
