The movie, based on Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's book about the JFK assassination, is currently filming in Virginia and is set to premiere in November, around the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death. It will tell parallel stories of the Kennedys and Lee Harvey Oswald (Will Rothhaar, "Last Resort") leading up to the events in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.
The photo of Lowe as John Kennedy mimics Kennedy's official White House portrait (which was painted after his death), while Goodwin inhabits Jackie Kennedy's famous look quite well. What do you think of the photos? Are you looking forward to "Killing Kennedy"? »

The official ballots for the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards are now available online, and while they won't tell us who's going to be nominated, they can tell us who won't be.
We scoured the ballots to dig up the notable omissions (if you were hoping for an Arya Stark nomination, better luck next year) and surprising inclusions (go get your directing nomination, Jennifer Love Hewitt!).
Every ABC Family original series (including "The Lying Game," "Baby Daddy" and "The Secret Life of the American Teenager") is submitted for consideration as either Outstanding Comedy or Outstanding Drama except for the network's most outstanding show: "Bunheads." Huh?
Star Sutton Foster submitted herself in the Comedy Actress category, but "Bunheads" is otherwise Mia from the ballots (even in technical categories like casting, main title design and costume design).
Other shows completely out of contention are more understandable, though Starz's canceled "Boss" earned enough »
Soledad O’Brien is joining fellow Today show alum Bryant Gumbel at HBO’s Real Sports.
HBO said Wednesday that O’Brien will be a reporter on the monthly magazine show, which is anchored by Gumbel. Her first story, due this month, is about war veterans who use martial arts to help cope with post-traumatic stress disorder.
“It’s exactly what I’ve been doing for a long time – telling stories about human beings and their struggles,” O’Brien said.
She most recently was a morning-show host on CNN, but the news network has given the program an overhaul that will debut next week. »

This news kind of slipped through the cracks last Friday, at least for me, but it warranted some attention. HBO is developing The Spark, an alien sci-fi series, from the pen and mind of Karl Gajdusek (Last Resort, Oblivion).
As with any HBO show, it appears to have a bold goal and premise, and according to Gajdusek will tackle “the five pillars of science fiction: Alien Contact, Artificial Intelligence, Technological breakthroughs, Space Exploration/Adventure, and Origin Stories” all explored on a human level.
Here’s more on the plot: The Spark “is set in a world undergoing a technological/industrial revolution in the near future when contacted by a signal from beyond the solar system. It centers on the human reaction to a mystery still spiritually and technologically out of reach and follows a female protagonist as she works on the cusp of the Earth’s effort to discover the origin of the signal. »

The North remembers — and they’ll have to, since Sunday marked the last episode of Game of Thrones until 2014.
Thankfully, HBO has just premiered a slew of new teasers for series and TV movies that should help the time pass quickly. (Among these videos was a new trailer for The Newsroom, which we posted last night.)
First up is Eastbound & Down, a cult favorite that was labeled as good as dead last spring. Its eight-episode “epic final season” premieres Sept. 29.

With the disappointment of Last Resort behind him, creator Karl Gajdusek is moving on to bigger and better projects. Specifically, Gajdusek has gone to HBO with the sci-fi drama The Spark. Moving into the realm of sci-fi is a change of pace for HBO. The network isn’t known for its genre series, with Game of Thrones being the first in a long time. With that series’ success, HBO must be feeling bolder in what it picks up. The Spark sounds like it will be a serious science fiction endeavor, not at all shy about what it is and the tropes that come with the genre.
According to Deadline, The Spark takes place in a world undergoing a technological/industrial revolution in the near future when humanity is contacted by a signal from beyond our solar system. The show will be about how humans react to a mystery that’s out of their reach. »

HBO has conquered the fantasy genre with Game of Thrones, and now the cable network is looking to delve into science fiction with a project called The Spark, EW has confirmed. Deadline first reported the news.
Now in development (so it’s not guaranteed to be picked up to air), The Spark comes from the mind of Karl Gajdusek, creator of military TV series Last Resort, which premiered last fall but was canceled by ABC mid-season. Gajdusek also co-wrote the recent Tom Cruise sci-fi flick Oblivion.
Here’s the story description for the potential series from Deadline’s report:

Exclusive: HBO is making a move in the sci-fi arena with The Spark, a drama from Karl Gajdusek, creator/executive producer of ABC’s recent series Last Resort and co-writer of the feature Oblivion starring Tom Cruise. The project, now in development, is set in a world undergoing a technological/industrial revolution in the near future when contacted by a signal from beyond the solar system. It centers on the human reaction to a mystery still spiritually and technologically out of reach and follows a female protagonist as she works on the cusp of the Earth’s effort to discover the origin of the signal. Gajdusek is writing and executive producing the potential series, which promises to explore on a human level what he calls the five pillars of science fiction: Alien Contact, Artificial Intelligence, Technological breakthroughs, Space Exploration/Adventure, and Origin Stories. On the feature side, Gajdusek, repped by Verve and Management 360, »

Autumn Reeser's family is about to expand.
The former "Last Resort" star, fondly remembered for her role of Taylor Townsend on "The O.C.," announced on her website Move Lifestyle that she and husband Jesse Warren, a writer/producer, are expecting their second child.
In a post entitled "It's Pregnancy Awareness Month," Reeser writes, "So you should be aware ... that I'm pregnant! Yup. Baby number Two is on the way and due at the end of November. We're thrilled!"
Reeser and Warren welcomed their first child, son Finn, in May of 2011. Congrats to the expecting couple! »
A British take on the vampire romp naturally features a centuries-old prostitute in a rundown seaside town – with some 80s surrealism thrown in
The English seaside town is the end of the line – and the end of the world. That has been the prevailing mood in recent British movies like Paweł Pawlikowski's Last Resort, Thomas Clay's The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael, and indeed Rowan Joffé's underrated new version of Brighton Rock, which, like this film, features Sam Riley.
And it is by a typically bleak British beach that Neil Jordan has created this florid, preposterous but watchable soap opera of the undead; it's a dark fantasy that contains a trace of his slight weakness for whimsy, but in some ways it's his most effective film for some time, adapted for the screen by Moira Buffini from her stage play A Vampire Story. The seaside town is unnamed, but »

Update: Now that the networks have set their schedules for the 2013-14 season, totals and percentages changed to reflect the current status of each show.
It is no secret that this has not been a banner year for broadcast television.
The narrative that, on the business side at least, this has been a down season for traditional network TV is not just hype. Compared to this time last season, all five English-language broadcast networks are drawing smaller ratings among adults 18-49, the age group that drives the bulk of advertiser spending.
The drops range from trifling (CBS is down from a 3.0 last year to a 2.9, NBC from 2.5 to 2.4) to alarming (Fox has lost seven tenths of a point, going from 3.2 last season to 2.5 now). Three networks -- ABC, Fox and NBC -- are also drawing smaller total audiences, while CBS and The CW have posted just modest gains of 220,000 and 70,000 viewers. »
ABC's "666 Park Avenue" and "Zero Hour" were some of the first shows to be canceled this season, but for fans who want to know how the stories end, ABC has scheduled both series to be burned off on Saturday evenings this summer.
As previously announced, "Zero Hour" will return at 8 p.m. Et on June 15 with a double-bill, before "666 Park Avenue" returns in the 9 p.m. slot on June 22, according to Deadline.
The Anthony Edwards drama was canceled after only three episodes back in March, after earning the dubious distinction of being the least-watched premiere for a scripted series on ABC ever -- debuting with 6.3 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in the key 18-49 demographic.
"666 Park Avenue" was canceled after seven episodes, falling from 7 million viewers to under 4 million during its two months on air. Another of ABC's high-concept freshman dramas, "Last Resort," was allowed to air all 13 of its ordered episodes despite being axed. »
