From 'Big' to 'Marley & Me': We weigh in on TV's remake fad

29 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I generally pay as much attention to the broadcast network development season as I do to the baseball draft. Though the shows that actually survive development are much closer to airing chronologically than most baseball draftees are to the majors, the winnowing process is just as brutal in both cases. On average, a given network will hear 3-400 pitches a year, order scripts for 60-70 of them, make 8-12 pilots and put roughly between a half dozen and a dozen of them on the air. So I’ve usually found development not worth worrying about until shows are actually ordered to series and scheduled. That said, it’s been tough to ignore this fall’s development season, where it seems like every day for the past few weeks, my Twitter feed has blown up a few times an afternoon with news of a familiar movie or TV property being adapted »

They also apparently inherited their mother’s perfect aim, »

'House of Cards' Season 2 photos: Molly Parker and David Clennon make their debut

23 January 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Netflix has released a batch of photos for the upcoming second season of "House of Cards." There are no captions or episode descriptions, so details are scarce, but we do get our first look at some Season 2 newcomers: Molly Parker and David Clennon.

Parker, a alum of "Deadwood" and "The Firm," can be seen above sitting at a table with Clennon ("Ghost Whisperer," "Once and Again"). We don't even yet know their character names yet, but things look pretty intense.

Based on some of the other pictures here -- Parker perhaps snooping on someone else's computer, and Parker coming face-to-face with Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood -- we would guess that Parker and Clennon are on opposite sides of Frank and his wife Claire (Robin Wright).

"House of Cards" Season 2 premieres on Netflix Friday, Feb. 14. Check out all the Season 2 photos here and watch the Season 2 trailer for a sneak peek. »
