The Supergirl pilot episode leaked late last week, in full and in high quality - genuine error or a publicity stunt?
Some believed that the comic book adaptation hitting the web - 6 months before its intended November launch on CBS - was a simple (if rather large) mistake, while conspiracy theorists argued that the pilot had been intentionally leaked to counter negative buzz following a lukewarm reception to the first series trailer.
Whatever the truth, the leak is far from the first incident of its kind. Episodes of popular TV shows have been popping up online ahead of broadcast for a while now - sometimes it's a matter of days, but sometimes it's months...

The Works International has boarded world sales rights to Cat Villiers-produced (No Man’s Land) drama The Last Photograph, based on the book by Simon Astaire.
Astaire, who also produces, has adapted his own novel about a man who risks everything to track down the thieves who stole his most prized possession.
Currently in production in London, The Works is introducing the project to buyers in Cannes.
Huston said: “The story is a simple one, made up of fragmented memories, the present and the past, told out of chronology. Love, loss, terror … and the hopeful promise of change.”

With the 2014-2015 television season winding down, many television fans and channels are looking ahead to the new series that will make their debut over the next television season. Fox is no different, having announced their renewals, cancellations, and new series pickups over the last week, and the network has now released trailers for a number of their new series.

Bordertown centers on two clans: the Buckwalds and the Gonzalezes. »
