The opening act of a TV show needs to grab the audience, give them a reason to stay after the opening credits roll. Even more so with a pilot, the first scene can set the tone for the entire show—and help a viewer decide whether a show is right or wrong.
Manhattan Love Story’s first scene is disappointing—on the verge of offensive—as it introduces two leads who will likely fall in love, and who the show hopes viewers will fall in love with, too. The problem is from minute one, the familiar Love Story makes it »

If Her granted a view of the love landscape in the near-future, then The Heart Machine adopts a similar approach set in the here and now. The days when dating and interaction were limited to actual physical experience are a thing of the past. I know it, you know it. Online romance isn’t reserved for those outliers who struggle to thrive in social situations – everyone’s at it now.
What’s possibly the most compelling conceit of The Heart Machine is that at its core are two young people capable of making easier romantic choices, who choose to involve themselves in the difficulty of digital dating. Directed by Zachary Wigon the two leads, John Gallagher Jr. (The Newsroom) and Kate Lyn Sheil (You’re Next) are at the centre of a movie than spans in two directions. We get an idea of how the movie functions based on this first trailer. »

Johnny Depp’s upcoming crime-comedy flick about a hapless art dealer was supposed to be released on February 6th but Lionsgate have now reportedly moved the film forward two weeks meaning it will now hit the big screen on January 23rd. Mortdecai will now avoid a head-to-head battle with the Wachowski’s futuristic Jupiter Ascending starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis and will instead duke it out with The Boy Next Door starring Jennifer Lopez as a recently divorced woman who begins an affair with a younger man.
It seems like a fairly sound strategic move from Lionsgate considering the Wachowski’s have a decent following (despite their recent poor efforts) and Lopez hasn’t exactly attracted the masses as of late. It will also avoid the fantasy adventure epic Seventh Son starring Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges and Kit Harrington, which is likely to do decent box-office numbers.

Is John Gallagher Jr. getting Catfished in this trailer? Let’s back up a bit. Part drama, part thriller to a smaller degree (or mystery, perhaps), “The Heart Machine” is about a man living in New York City who begins to suspect that his long-distance girlfriend who he met on the Internet has been living in the Manhattan the whole time, instead of Berlin like she claims. Of course, he sets out to find her. The movie stars John Gallagher Jr. of “The Newsroom” and Kate Lyn Sheil, an indie darling known for Amy Seimetz's "Sun Don't Shine," the early films of Alex Ross Perry (including a brief turn in his latest "Listen Up Philip") and “House of Cards.” Here’s the official synopsis: Tracking two parallel journeys that show how digital media complicates modern love, The Heart Machine explores the evolving relationship between physical and emotional intimacy, isolation in the urban hive, »

Paramount had no comment on the casting.
The majority of the movie takes place in an underground cellar and revolves around a young woman who wakes up after a severe car accident and fears she has been abducted.

As tensions rise, she decides she must escape regardless of the terrors that await outside.

Aaron Sorkin didn’t know how “The Newsroom” would end when he began writing the final season "For most of the time, I didn’t know how the show was going to end,” he says. "I would have small images of what I wanted to see. But the closer I got to the end of the season in terms of writing, the more I was able to see the end of the season finale. Once we got there, it happened more easily than I thought it was going to.” “Godzilla” movie has a “Breaking Bad” easter egg For a split second in the opening credits, you can see Walter White’s name.

The lights are about to dim on the HBO’s The Newsroom. The drama, created by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing) and focusing on fictional cable news channel Acn, begins its final season on Nov. 9, and will wrap up its story in a tight six episodes. “It was because of my schedule,” Sorkin says of the shortened season. “But, as it turned out, six was the right number. I don’t know what we would have done with a seventh episode.”
So what’s in these final hours? EW talked to Sorkin about weddings, power plays, and Twitter scandals.

HBO announced a trio of fall premiere dates for returning series, including one show that hasn't been on the network for nearly a decade.
That latter series, "The Comeback," is making a triumphant comeback of its own, with Lisa Kudrow reprising her role as washed-up sitcom star Valerie Cherish. The first iteration of the show lasted 13 episodes back in 2005 before it was pulled by HBO; this time around, it's being brought back for an eight-episode limited series run, set to premiere on November 9.
Directly in front of "The Comeback" on the schedule is "The Newsroom," which is returning for its third and final season on the network. The Aaron Sorkin-penned series will wrap up its run with six episodes, and Paul Lieberstein ("The Office") is joining the show as an executive producer.
