Entertainment Weekly has debuted three first look images for the upcoming biographical drama Churchill featuring Brian Cox as the legendary British wartime Prime Minister, Miranda Richardson as his wife Clementine, and John Slattery as future Us President, General Dwight D. Eisenhower. Directed by Jonathan Teplitzky, the film follows Winston Churchill in the 48 hours leading up to D-Day; take a look below…

“Time After Time” piggybacks on a microtrend of time-travel shows to mash together a few different genres into one unwieldy premise: notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper on the loose in modern-day Manhattan, with science-fiction pioneer H.G. Wells chasing him through time. The show is a televised, modern update of the 1979 film of the same name. But unlike that film, which enjoys the odd and speculative mechanics of time travel — or other time travel shows, which use the premise to go to various points in time — “Time After Time” doesn’t seem all that interested in how the machine works or in stretching it to its limits. Wells pursues the Ripper to modern-day New York from Victorian London, and then the show decides to just camp out, going so far as to disable the time machine by the end of the second hour.
Wells is played by the charming Freddie Stroma, best »

Time After Time may belong to the 2016-17 TV season’s time-travel class, but it has more in common with executive producer Kevin Williamson’s previous series, The Vampire Diaries and The Following, than it does with Timeless and Making History.

The ABC drama — which is based on the 1979 book and movie about sci-fi author H.G. Wells (UnREAL‘s Freddie Stroma) and his pursuit of Jack the Ripper (Revenge‘s Josh Bowman) in modern-day New York City — is “very Kevin Williamson” with its »

I’m not totally against ridiculous TV show premises. Last year, Timeless proved that a non-original idea can merge with enthusiastic storytelling to form a fun, if formulaic, romp. Westworld, lest we all forget, is essentially an origin story about killer robot cowboys and cowgirls. I dug both of those shows, but they also share one downfall in my book: their initially intriguing opening hours faced diminishing returns in the “why do I care anymore” department. They lacked longevity.
Time After Time is as ridiculous as they come, in both good ways and bad, but it already feels like it’s encroaching into the land of viewer apathy by the time the totally toothless pilot-ending cliffhanger lands with a thud. Scream and The Following creator Kevin Williamson adapts the story from a book and film of the same name – in which the real »

Her show is “The Detour,” but Natalie Zea’s career has taken a direct route from drama to comedy. The former star of “The Following” and “Justified” is now on season two of the TBS road-trip sitcom, which sees her character, Robin, and the rest of the Parker clan heading from Syracuse to New York City.
How did you join “The Detour?”
I had let it be known to whoever would listen that I wanted to do comedy. It was a real struggle, because I’d been known as this dramatic actress for my entire career. I got a phone call one day saying that [creators Jason Jones and Samantha Bee] wanted me to read the script. I had just been released from a project 48 hours prior, and I had said, “I am not going to take the next thing that comes, because I really want it to be right.” I assumed I would read the script and politely pass.

The producers of Time After Time are Wells aware that when the ABC drama makes its debut, it will be (conservatively speaking) TV’s sixth current series with a time travel element.
That, however, makes things a bit easier, says executive producer Kevin Williamson (The Following), seeing as viewers are just a bit more likely to be familiar with “time ripples,” the Butterfly Effect and such.
