Last year U.S. television network Fox produced and then quickly cancelled "Rake," a toothless and weakly received version of the well-regarded and darkly humoured Australian legal comedy of the same name from local broadcaster ABC TV.
That isn't stopping Fox from trying again with another show from the same Australian broadcaster, this time they're planning a crime drama series based on the telemovie series "Jack Irish" which starred Guy Pearce.
Based on the detective novels by Peter Temple, two TV movies were produced in 2012 and one in 2014 that starred Pearce as a former criminal lawyer turned private investigator and debt collector.
Getting his life back together after the murder of his wife, he usually finds himself landing cases by being in the wrong place at the wrong time - cases involving high-level corruption, dark sexual secrets, and murder.
- Garth Franklin
The series follows the title character, a part-time lawyer, debt collector and apprentice cabinet maker who is attempting to get his life back on track after his wife’s murder. He also has the unfortunate-for-him gift of finding himself in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The one-hour drama is produced by Chernin Entertainment in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television with Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope executive producing for their shingle. Exec producers also include writer Seamus Kevin Fahey (“Spartacus”) and showrunner Anna Fricke (“Being Human,” “Everwood”).

While speaking with "The Walking Dead" co-star Lauren Cohan at this year's Sdcc, we asked the outgoing actress if she would be open to returning to "Supernatural" if the opportunity arose. Her response should make fans of her character on the show happy.
Cohan said she'd love to, especially as the series enters what are likely its final few seasons, but nothing is in the works. Her smile conveyed fond memories of her time there as she laughed and added that she'll have to make some phone calls.
In Season 3 Cohan portrayed the attractive mercenary Bela Talbot, one of the few characters on "Supernatural" able to pull a fast one on the Winchesters, which of course meant that fan reaction to her was mixed. She appeared in six Season 3 episodes and was presumed killed, but hey, this is "Supernatural" we're talking about... nobody stays dead forever! And besides, we'd love »

Last October, Fox ordered the adventure series Hieroglyph straight to series with 13 episodes. This was an unusual move for a broadcast network with an unknown property. It was part of former Fox Chairman of Entertainment Kevin Reilly's plan to move Fox away from the traditional pilot season model. Reilly's pitch for Hieroglyph: "We wanted to do a show about deceit, sex, intrigue in the court and fantastical goings-on---no better place to set that than ancient Egypt." As "former" implies, Reilly resigned last month after upfront week. It remains to be seen if Fox will return to the pilot season model in Reilly's absence, but the network clearly was not happy with the results of this particular experiment. Fox has cancelled Hieroglyph before it had a chance to reach its midseason premiere. More after the jump. THR reports Hieroglyph is not moving forward due to "creative reasons." Only the first episode had been filmed. »

Fox has decided to table drama series “Hieroglyph,” which had been given a series order for the 2014-15 season.
The sprawling action-adventure drama set in ancient Egyptian times hailed from scribe Travis Beacham, Chernin Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV. Anna Fricke, formerly with Syfy’s “Being Human,” had signed on as showrunner and exec producer.
“Hieroglyph” was developed under Fox’s new approach to drama series development under a straight to series order model. But the additional scripts that were coming in after the formal series order were underwhelming and the network decided to pull the plug before it got in much deeper on the costume drama. The first episode was shot in Los Angeles and New Mexico in the spring.
Fox had yet to set a formal premiere date beyond designating it as a midseason entry.
The decision likely reflects some rethinking of Fox’s slate in the »

Telltale Games’ upcoming Tales From The Borderlands just got a lot more nerdy, as today the company revealed which talents will be lending their pipes to the title.
Sam Witwer, perhaps best known for his work in the American version of Being Human and his voicing of Darth Maul in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, will voice one of the main protagonists of the game, Rhys. Joining Witer will be Nerdist founder and @midnight host Chris Hardwick, who will portray Vaughn, a “meek, mousy accountant for the Hyperion Corporation” and Rhy’s best friend.
Additional talent featured in Tales From The Borderlands include Patrick Warburton (Family Guy), Nolan North (Uncharted series) and several returning members from the Borderlands series cast, including Dameon Clarke as Handsome Jack.
Without doubt, Telltale Games’ narrative-driven experiences have typically featured excellent voice casting, and Tales From The Borderlands doesn’t appear to change that. All »

We’ve known for a while now that Warner Bros. has plans for an animated Aquaman feature as part of its DC Universe Animated Original Movies line, which of course was teased during the end credits of Justice League: War, and now thanks to Newsarama we’ve got some minor details on the feature.
According to the site, the movie will have “Aquaman” in the title somewhere, and will be set in the same New 52-inspired universe as Justice League: War and the subsequent Son of Batman. They go on to report that Sam Witwer (Being Human) will lend his voice to Orm, Aquaman’s brother, and that “the film will likely be something of a New 52 origin story for Aquaman, meaning sources tell us at the start of the film he won’t know much, if anything, about his connection to Atlantis, his place in their royal family, and »

After the fourth and final season of Being Human had wrapped earlier this year, castmembers Sam Witwer, Sam Huntington, Kristen Hager and Meaghan Rath reunited at this year's Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo to reflect on their time together and share some behind the scenes details. Spoiler warning. The Us adaptation of the British series, Being Human, recently concluded after showrunner Anna Fricke decided to pull the plug and end the series in a satisfying manor amidst some financial issues that were looming over the production. "We told the story in the appropriate amount of time," said Huntington, "If we didn't end it the way we did, SyFy probably would've taken a longer look at potentially having us back for another season." Witwer addressed the fans who were sad to see the »

For four seasons, the Syfy drama series Being Human won over audiences with bold character developing, exciting plot twists and intriguing politics between supernatural species. Its premise was to follow a ghost named Sally (Meaghan Rath), a vampire named Aidan (Sam Witwer) and two werewolves, Josh (Sam Huntington) and Nora (Kristen Hager), as they struggled to keep their dark secrets from the world, while also helping each other navigate the complexities of living double lives. Now that the series is over, actor Sam Huntington spoke to Collider for this exclusive phone interview about how he feels that the show ended in just the right way, when and how he found out that Season 4 would be their last season, how grateful he was that they were able to end the show the way they wanted to, his desire for Josh and Nora to ride off into the sunset together, how concerned »

Review Paul Brian McCoy 22 Apr 2014 - 09:29
A bit of a palate cleanser this week - though it's one that signals the arrival of far bigger things to come...
This review contains spoilers.
Each episode of Hannibal this season has been named after a dish in the Japanese banquet dinner Kaiseki. The meal overall is a tour of Japanese haute cuisines balancing taste, appearance, and colors to emphasize seasonal themes. Each dish is beautifully arranged and decorated with flowers and edible garnishes designed to resemble animals or plants.
Su-zakana is a traditional palate cleanser before moving into a second round of larger dishes, and episode eight, Su-zakana, serves that purpose exquisitely. With the cleansing of the palate comes a return to familiarity as well, with Will back consulting with Jack and in therapy with Hannibal. Structurally, Hannibal returns to the procedural format, providing the semblance of normalcy despite everyone involved knowing full well, »
