In a dynamic marketplace, a rising tide lifts all boats. And the tidal wave of television series production in the past few years has led to an unprecedented number of women serving as captains of their ships — as showrunners and auteur writer-directors of shows.
And Shonda Rhimes now has company on the list of women who are juggling multiple primetime series.
This sea change comes with financial gains, according to data from the Writers Guild of America West, and brings anecdotal evidence of shifts in the way series are made. But it’s not just the heightened demand for content that has been good for female creatives; a newfound openness to material, no matter how challenging or narrowly focused, has paved the way for shows with fresh themes. »

Ahead of the full red band trailer reveal tomorrow, the teaser is merely a means of setting the tone, as Ryan Reynold’s titular, potty-mouthed anti-hero readies himself to break through the Internet’s fourth wall. Of a similar length to the sizzle reel showcased during San Diego Comic-Con, it’s understood that the trailer will premiere during Conan, with the talk show even “filling up [Deadpool‘s] dressing room with chimichangas in anticipation.”

20th Century Fox has today unveiled a new featurette for its upcoming video game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47, which takes a tentative peak into the mind of the stone cold, genetically enhanced killing machine.
Stepping into the shoes of the titular one-man army is Homeland star Rupert Friend, who is on a mission to sabotage the cloning process that brought him into this world as an emotionless sharpshooter.

In order to do so, our protagonist must track down his daughter, Katia van Dees (Hannah Ware).
Making his feature-film debut is Aleksander Bach, who will oversee the high-octane actioner for Fox. With a cast list that encompasses Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, Thomas Kretschmann, Dan Bakkedahl and Ciaran Hinds, Hitman: Agent 47 need not »

Remember those U.K.-based bookies we keep hearing about? They were the ones placing bets on who the new James Bond would be after Daniel Craig, naming Homeland.s Damian Lewis as the frontrunner. Well, these folks are now doing the same with who will eventually come to perform the theme song for Spectre . or, at least, they were. Betting has now been closed because someone dropped an insanely large amount of money in favor of Radiohead. THR says that a British bookie "suspended" its betting after an anonymous gambler dropped £15,000 (which translates to roughly $23,000) on Radiohead as the group that will record the next James Bond theme song. While only Sam Mendes knows at the moment who will sing the next Bond theme song, the bookies suggested that this type of action was enough to point to Radiohead as a new frontrunner even though the iconic rock outfit »
