Code Black: Did CBS' Hectic Hospital Drama Get Your Pulse Racing?

30 September 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

In case you couldn’t tell from the above photo, CBS’ new medical drama Code Black is all about controlled chaos. Angels Memorial Hospital is frantic, intense and overwhelming.

With an influx of patients so great, there often aren’t enough resources to treat them — a situation known as “code black” — there’s no time for hooking up in the on-call room. An attending even tells two bickering docs, “If nobody’s taking their clothes off, I need you both on the floor now.”

‘Quantico’ Review: Priyanka Chopra Scores in Silly Spy Drama

27 September 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Beautiful people and juicy twists await the viewer of “Quantico,” but also a lot of silliness. Created by Joshua Safran, a former showrunner on “Smash” and executive producer on “Gossip Girl,” this drama-thriller wants to be a sleek, edgy mystery in which a talented FBI recruit (striking Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, making her American television debut) must track down who’s responsible for a deadly New York terrorist attack before federal authorities catch her first, believing she’s the perpetrator. But for a show about highly trained, incredibly intelligent agents, “Quantico’s” pilot often succumbs to lame-brained plotting and a less-than-convincing portrayal. »

See ‘Scorpion’ Star Katharine McPhee’s Interview, Exclusive Photos From TheWrap Fall TV Issue Cover Shoot (Video)

16 September 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“You can definitely be assured that Team Scorpion will be solving the world’s problems one episode at a time,” Katharine McPhee said of the second season of Scorpion, the CBS drama about a squad of high-tech geniuses who use advanced brainpower to tackle things like biohacking, nuclear meltdowns and arms dealing. But the 31-year-old singer-turned-actress, who first burst into the public eye in the fifth season of “American Idol” before moving to the musical drama Smash and then Scorpion, also promised viewers that a lighter tone will occasionally prevail, as will the romance between her character, single mother Paige. »

A Spoonful of Sugar Will Make Disney’s New Mary Poppins Musical Go Down

14 September 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. For Disney executives whose job it is to dream up new versions of the company's classic films, "fun" looks like a new Mary Poppins musical from Rob Marshall, with Smash's Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman writing the songs. EW reports that the musical will be based on the later novels in P.L. Travers's Poppins series, but that the project is "decidedly not being developed as a sequel," whatever that means. Regardless, it looks like Tom Hanks was more convincing than we thought. »

14 September 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Practically perfect! More than 50 years after Julie Andrews gave fans a spoonful of sugar as the world’s most beloved nanny, Mary Poppins, Disney is reprising the iconic role in a new original live-action musical film, Entertainment Weekly reports.  The film will be set 20 years after the original story’s Depression-era London, and will use some of author P.L. Travers’ original children’s books for the storyline.  Into the Woods director Rob Marshall will spearhead the project with songwriting team Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray, Smash) composing original [...] »

Disney Is Making a New 'Mary Poppins' Musical

14 September 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Mary Poppins" is coming back to the big screen: Disney is working on a new, original musical starring its classic magical nanny.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the film is already moving through the development stages, with director Rob Marshall ("Chicago," "Into the Woods") at the helm. Marshall will re-team with his "Into the Woods" producers John DeLuca and Marc Platt for the project, which is set to be a new musical adventure featuring the Poppins character -- and not a direct sequel to the famous 1964 version.

Per EW:

The new Poppins film will take place in Depression-era London, some 20 years after Disney's classic Mary Poppins, and will draw from existing Poppins tales in the rest of author P.L. Travers' 1934-1988 children's book series. The practically perfect 1964 screen adaptation starring Julie Andrews pulled its story primarily from the first installment in Travers' eight-book series; the new project (which is decidedly »

The members of Firehouse 51 might not want to get too comfortable when Chicago Fire returns — at least, not if Fredric Lehne has his way.

The ubiquitous TV actor will recur on Season 4 of the NBC drama as Deputy District Chief Ray Riddle, a gruff, politically savvy fire chief above Boden.

Have Jurassic Dinosaurs Truly Kicked Marvel Superheroes Butt at Worldwide Box Office?

25 July 2015 9:48 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, "officially" just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, "But which movie has actually sold the most tickets?" After all, that's the true measure of a film's popularity. Well, that's a tough one to answer without the studios providing accurate, precise numbers. And that's not about to happen. It always »

2015 Pilot First Impressions: CBS’ Supergirl

23 July 2015 8:49 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

To clarify, this article and the ones similar to it that will follow are not reviews of this fall/midseason’s pilots (because pilots can change a lot between now and when they broadcast). These are just my first impressions of the not-for-air network pilots that I have been able to screen. First up: CBS’ Supergirl, which premieres on Monday, Oct. 26, at 8:30 p.m. The Cast: Melissa Benoist (Glee) as Kara Zor-El/Kara Danvers, Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal) as Cat Grant, Chyler Leigh (Grey’s Anatomy) as Alex Danvers, Mehcad Brooks (True Bloood) as James “Jimmy” Olsen, Jeremy Jordan (Smash) as Winn Schott, and David Harewood (Homeland) as Hank Henshaw My First Impression: Although it’ll air on CBS, Supergirl feels very similar in tone and style to The CW’s The Flash in its first hour, and that’s neither surprising, since both shows come from Greg Berlanti, »

Chasing Life's Krysta Rodriguez Teases Vanessa's Backstory, Says Playing a Character With Cancer Is 'Cathartic'

Supergirl Stars Talk Casting Drama — and Who's Stoked for 'Makeout Scenes With Superman'

Landing a coveted role on CBS’ buzzy freshman drama Supergirl was no easy task — just ask Glee alum Melissa Benoist about her three months of screen testing — so forgive the cast if they’re not about to get caught up in any social-media negativity surrounding their worthiness, thank you very much.

Debra Messing "Wasn't a Fan" of Jeremy Piven on Will & Grace: "He Shoved His Tongue...Down to My Heart"

Debra Messing isn't afraid to kiss and tell — especially if the kiss is bad! During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live earlier this week, the Smash alum dished on one of her least-favorite former costars: Jeremy Piven, who apparently got a little overzealous during their makeout scene on Will & Grace back in 2000. Asked by a caller to name the best and worst guest stars on the sitcom, Messing, 46, was quick to single out Harry Connick, Jr. as her favorite. (The crooner played [...] »
