'Salem' review: Everything old is newish again in premiere episode

18 April 2014 6:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are many striking things about Salem (premieres Sun. April 20 at 10:00 p.m. on Wgn). There is a surplus of gross and gory stuff, plenty of Puritans, and some of the most anachronistic dialogue I've ever heard in a period drama. Apparently the writers decided that the best way to capture the olde time speake of the 17th century is in cliches like "you can't keep a good man down," "he's a chip off the old block,"  "he fights like a girl" and my favorite, "I call bullshit!" Yes, someone really says "I call bullshit," I kid thee not. Of course, it doesn't help that every actor (and, by extension, every character) seems to be operating on the belief he or she is in an entirely different project than the one they're in. As John Alden, Shane West ("Nikita") swaggers through Salem with plenty of snappy one-liners and an »

'Salem' star Shane West knows nothing about 'Harry Potter' -- Video

18 April 2014 5:38 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

As far as first celebrity crushes go, Shane West’s childhood love for Cougar Town star Courteney Cox is anything but embarrassing. In fact, it’s adorable — like most of the answers he gave when he took EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test.

These days, when the Nikita alum isn’t answering our questions about his complete lack of Harry Potter knowledge (“I know it’s a bunch of young wizards fightin’ some old wizards”), he’s hard at work on his new show Salem, which premieres April 20 at 10 p.m. Et on Wgn.

Jamie Bell Talks Turn, Coming to Television, Physical Challenges, Researching the Historical Setting, and More

18 April 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

From showrunner Craig Silverstein (Nikita) and based on Alexander Rose’s book Washington’s Spies, the new AMC drama series Turn tells the untold story of America’s first spy ring.  A historical thriller set during the Revolutionary War, the show follows Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell), a farmer living in British-occupied Long Island who bands together with his childhood friends to form the Culper Ring, which is an unlikely team of secret agents who not only went on to help George Washington turn the tide of the war, but also gave birth to modern spycraft. During this recent interview to promote the new show, actor Jamie Bell talked about what attracted him to this project, why he was drawn to television, the responsibility in playing someone who existed and who did something quite incredible, in terms of the history of this country, that spies were hated during that time period, »

CW Sets Summer Timeslots for ‘Backpackers,’ Other New Shows

17 April 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The CW is joining the comedy and magic club this summer.

The net, which throughout the year typically airs nine drama series as part of its 10-hour schedule, is experimenting with a pair of new half-hour comedies, “Backpackers” (originally a digital series) and “Seed,” as well as magic series “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” and “Masters of Illusion,” as part of its summer lineup.

CW kicks off its summer June 2 with improv comedy “Whose Line Is It Anyway” on a new night; each week, an original episode will be followed by a repeat. Original episodes of sophomore drama “Beauty and the Beast” will air from 9 to 10.

Reality docuseries “Famous in 12″ bows the next night, airing from 8 to 9. It’s an unscripted series/social experiment that will film one fame-seeking family around the clock for 12 weeks straight.  The family will be guided by the TMZ machine, which will create a series of opportunities for them. »

Wgn America Releases New Trailer For Salem

16 April 2014 9:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Wgn America is branching out into the world of scripted television and taking viewers back to 17th century Massachusetts in the new drama, Salem. In this re-imagined version of the Salem Witch Trials, a dark period in American history has now become a seductive opportunity for the network to make its mark in the supernatural genre.

Salem, starring Nikita’s Shane West, explores a bold new world where witches run the show. According to creator Brannon Braga, who’s also serving as an executive producer on the project, the premise is based on the idea that not only were witches real, but they were working in cahoots with their persecutors during the trials for reasons that will become clear later on.

Although there’s been a slight backlash from TV critics concerning the possible re-writing of history, executive producer Adam Simon defends the show, stating that there was a widespread »

Watch: Gruesome Trailer for Wgn America's 'Salem' Posits Witches are Real (and Violent)

15 April 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Let me first say this: do not watch the two-minute trailer for "Salem" while trying to enjoy a meal. The full spot for Wgn America's first scripted series "Salem" is violent, dark, and more than a bit scary, painting a vivid picture for Sunday's premiere episode. Set in Salem, Massachusetts in the late 1600s, the premise of "Salem" rests on the belief that witches are, in fact, real. The infamous real-life trials so well depicted in most versions of the "The Crucible," including the 1996 film starring Daniel Day-Lewis, seem more than necessary rather than depressingly false when witches are jumping off ceilings and pulling teeth from their mouths.  "Salem" stars Janet Montgomery ("Human Target"), Shane West ("Nikita," "ER"), and Seth Gabel ("Fringe") and revolves around a romance somehow linked to the revelation that witches are real, just not who you think. The trailer starts out simple enough before heaping on the horror. »

AMC’s Revolutionary War Spy Drama ‘Turn’ Unfurls With 2.1 Million Viewers Watching

7 April 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

On a very competitive night that included HBO’s Game of Thrones season opener, CBS’s Academy of Country Music Awards and, yes, WrestleMania 30 on pay-per-view, AMC‘s new crunchy-gravel drama Turn logged a hefty 2.1 million viewers at 9 Pm last night. With the repeat viewing at 10:30 Pm, that crowd grew to a cumed 3 million viewers.  Among the premiere telecast’s 2.1 mil were 669,000 demo viewers; with the 10:30 Pm repeat factored in, that stat grows to  1.1 million. Even better, the quarterly stats throughout the 90-minute premiere remained consistent, which means viewers did not look at a few minutes of the period piece and respond “Yikes!” With its celebrated anti-hero dramas Breaking Bad and Mad Men gone and entering final season, respectively, there’s a lot of pressure on AMC’s straight-up good-guys-versus-bad drama which promises to feature guys in breeches, waistcoats, and powdered wigs.

News Louisa Mellor 7 Apr 2014 - 07:38

Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys is the latest feature film to be turned into a television series...

Fargo, From Dusk Till Dawn, and now Twelve Monkeys... The TV drama landscape will soon be unrecognisable from the 'New Releases' shelf of a branch of Blockbusters circa 1996.
