Into the Badlands Feels Like a Rough Draft of a TV Show

16 November 2015 11:56 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Great action and great atmosphere can excuse a lot. Unfortunately, Into the Badlands has little of the former and less of the latter. This lavishly produced new series from Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Lethal Weapon 4, Shanghai Noon), which debuted Sunday, feels like another example (along with the lamentable Low Winter Sun) of AMC's tendency to bleed the grubby life out of the same material that seemingly fired its creators' imaginations. It's set in a postapocalyptic world ruled by warlords with armies of assassins who were raised to kill for their masters from birth onward (the adult killers are called Cutters; the young trainees, Colts). The warlords, called barons, live in strongholds with gigantic gates and high walls; the first one we see evokes a pre–Civil War plantation on the inside, and most of the owners dress in what looks like a hybrid of late Confederate fashion, Sergio Leone »

AMC Greenlight Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's 'Preacher' To Series, See The First Poster

10 September 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There’s a bit of a risk, now that the two series that put them on the map, “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men,” have wrapped up, that AMC will become known as something of a one-trick pony. They still have one giant, enormous hit in “The Walking Dead,” but since then, the only hits they’ve launched have been spin-offs of existing hits, with “Fear The Walking Dead” and “Better Call Saul,” with series like “Turn,” “Low Winter Sun,” “Rubicon” and “Halt & Catch Fire” failing to get much love from critics or viewers (the latter improved enormously in its second season, but ratings are still low enough that it’s far from certain that it gets renewed again). They could use another hit, and there’s potentially one on the way in 2016, as the network have announced that they’ve greenlit a full first season of “Preacher,” an adaptation of »

Endemol Alum Philippe Maigret Joins ITV Studios America After Orly Adelson’s Exit

23 July 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — Philippe Maigret, the former chief of Endemol Studios in the U.S., has joined ITV Studios America as president of scripted programming.

Maigret launched Endemol Studios, the company’s U.S. scripted programming unit, in 2011. He left the newly merged Endemol Shine Group earlier this month.

Maigret’s appointment follows Orly Adelson’s resignation as president of ITV Studios America 10 days ago, and the exit last November of Paul Buccieri, who was head of the ITV Studios U.S. Group, for a senior post at A+E Networks.

“This is the next step in fulfilling our ambition to build a global scripted business,” said Kevin Lygo, managing director, ITV Studios.

“We have already made significant progress, and with Philippe at the helm in the U.S., we’ll accelerate that growth. His track record is very impressive, not least in launching a scripted business and quickly turning it into a leading independent producer. »

ITV Americas has found its new scripted leader. Endemol vet Philippe Maigret has been appointed president of scripted programming at the TV giant's U.S. arm. The news comes just two weeks after ITV Studios America president Orly Adelson exited just 18 months into the job -- and some eight months after her boss, ITV Studios Us Group CEO Paul Buccieri left for a key role at A+E.  Maigret stepped down at rival Endemol earlier this year, after a four-year tenure in which he oversaw the creation of its drama production studio, which produced such shows as Low Winter Sun, Red Widow and Kingdom.

Sdcc 2015: Watch a full trailer for ‘Fear The Walking Dead’

10 July 2015 1:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The AMC zombie apocalypse series The Walking Dead has, over the course of its run, become a major hit for the channel. One aspect of the show that numerous fans have brought up, however, is the fact that, while the zombie apocalypse in the show has affected a large area, the series has only examined its effects on a select group of individuals. To that end, AMC commissioned a spinoff of the series. Titled Fear The Walking Dead, the spinoff will be set in Los Angeles and will look at the early days of the apocalypse. Sons of Anarchy and Low Winter Sun scribe Dave Erickson has been tapped as showrunner, with Robert Kirkman and Greg Nicotero both involved in the spinoff series.

Now, as part of the show’s panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, a new trailer for the series has been released. The show, which will focus on new characters, »

'The Sopranos' Rewind: Season 1, Episode 1: 'The Sopranos'

3 June 2015 6:03 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the first installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the first episode — which is also known as "The Sopranos" — coming up just as soon as I finish unscrewing my belly button... "It's good to be in something from the ground floor. I came too late for that, I know. But lately, I'm getting the feeling that I came in at the end. »

'Fear the Walking Dead' Creators Reveal Plot Details

18 May 2015 7:12 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

More details of the upcoming Walking Dead spinoff have emerged, filling in the lines sketched out by the tense trailer AMC released in early March. Showrunner Dave Erikson and creator Robert Kirkman opened up about the character relationships and story arcs that will build the new series, Fear the Walking Dead.

Erikson, who produced Sons of Anarchy and Low Winter Sun, told The Hollywood Reporter that the new series, set in Los Angeles during the period of Rick's coma, is "more of a parallel story than a prequel...It's kind of its own strange, »

Writer-Producer Rolin Jones Mixes Stage and TV in New Neighborhood

10 April 2015 7:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A deal under the 20th Century Fox TV banner is oiling the wheels for a souped-up new theater company, in an unusual pact that could become a new model for producing live theatrical entertainment in a variety of venues.

Playwright and TV writer-producer Rolin Jones (“Weeds,” “Friday Night Lights,” “Boardwalk Empire”) inked a two-year pact in January with 20th TV to develop projects for network and cable under the shingle New Neighborhood.

But in a departure for Hollywood deals, Jones’ group will also create theater projects with a virtual company of artists from across the country, coming together in real life at various sites as projects demand. The troupe will co-produce with interested regional theaters, offering fresh product, talent, energy and some enhancement dollars.

“It’s all about storytelling,” says Jones, pictured above left with fellow New Neighborhood company member Jackson Gay. “We envision it a lot less like theater »

'Fear the Walking Dead' Trailer: Calm Before the Swarm

30 March 2015 8:12 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Morning, Los Angeles — hope you got your flu shot," says a DJ in a promo for the upcoming Walking Dead spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead. "Reports in five states that a strange virus is going around — so if you're not feeling well, go home, take care of yourself." It's a creepy teaser because we already know the end result: the zombie apocalypse. 

AMC premiered the trailer during Sunday night's Season Five finale episode of The Walking Dead. Though the clip runs a scant 15 seconds, it confirms two key plot details: »

This Week in TV News: ‘The Walking Dead’ spinoff gets picked up for at least two seasons

14 March 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This Week in TV News is a compliment to the Week in Review feature, which will now be focused on film news. 

AMC has guaranteed two seasons to the prequel companion series of The Walking Dead, as per THR. The announcement was made earlier this week, and comes as somewhat unsurprising news. The Walking Dead continues to be one of the channel’s highest rated shows, with its popularity showing no signs of waning as the show’s fifth season rolls along. In addition, AMC has found similar commercial and critical success with Better Call Saul, its new series that is itself a spinoff of Breaking Bad.

There’s no set title for the series as of yet, and working titles have included Fear The Walking Dead and Cobalt. The first season, much like the show that spawned this spinoff, will consist of six episodes, with creator Robert Kirkman working »

Fortitude, Ep. 1.03: “Episode Three” focuses more on the murder mystery

15 February 2015 9:42 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Fortitude, Season One, “Episode Three”

Written by Simon Donald

Directed by Sam Miller

Airs Thursdays at 10 pm (Et) on Pivot

Fortitude‘s nebulous two-part pilot promised mysteries on a cosmic scale; by offering sparse dialogue and dreamy imagery wreathed by the pristine whiteness magnanimous snow, creator Simon Donald and director Sam Miller seemed to be crafting a show more concerned with the ineffable than with cops and clues. Instead of establishing suspects and motive, excavating the nefarious underground ties that bind a small town, and strewing about red herrings, they suffused the frame with chilly melancholy. The serenity of a vast ice tundra is juxtaposed with the imminent dangers lurking above and below the permafrost. Fortitude has shades of The Killing‘s caustic theatrics and Donald’s Low Winter Sun, but none of the former’s genre-blind pretension. It’s serious not just in content but in form: any show »

Fortitude, Ep. 1.01 and 1.02: An intoxicating start to the series

29 January 2015 8:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Fortitude, Season 1, “Episode One and Two”

Written by Simon Donald

Directed by Sam Miller

Airs Thursdays at 10 pm (Et) on Pivot

Fortitude flaunts its lofty ambitions before the title even adorns the screen: we’re immediately thrown into a forlorn icy tundra, with splashes of black staining the ubiquitous white landscape. The sun, a burning, bulbous orb, hangs in a haze in the sky. A man, clad in arctic gear, carrying a rifle and a camera outfitted with a telescopic lens, traverses the scene. Before any words are spoken, a shrill scream carves through the wind and the man, obviously no novice, pulls off his mask and draws his rifle. Played by Michael Gambon, he does not look well. Through the scope he sees a polar bear mauling a man. The man’s face is mottled in blood, his leg several feet from the rest of him. Gambon aims, and »

Review: 'Fortitude' a thriller that depends on location, location, location

28 January 2015 9:15 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The idea that the location of a movie or TV show is a character in itself has become so overused in recent years that critics were startled to hear "Togetherness" co-creator Mark Duplass say at press tour that Los Angeles was not a significant character in the show, which they could have really set anywhere. And even the grand champion of the Location As Character shows, "The Wire," could have probably been set in a lot of different American cities that had seen better days; Baltimore was just the one David Simon knew best. With "Fortitude," a new thriller debuting tomorrow night at 10 on Pivot(*), the location is so unique, specific and important to the story that the show would have no reason to exist without it. At its core, the plot is a familiar mystery about murder in a close-knit community that isn't used to crime on this level »

Fortitude: Polar bear roams London to promote Sky series

27 January 2015 4:10 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

If you happen to be out and about in London today, then don't be alarmed if you come across this polar bear...

An 8ft long puppet is roaming the streets of the capital to promote Sky's new series Fortitude, which begins later this week.

The unusual commuter surprised travellers at Charing Cross Tube station this morning (January 27), before making its way to Hampstead Heath and the South Bank.

The startlingly realistic puppet took 19 Hollywood prop specialists eight weeks to design, and requires two performers to control it using internal monitors and cameras.

The performers have studied the gait and movements of polar bears in advance, in order to make today's stunt as realistic as possible.

Written by Low Winter Sun's Simon Donald, Fortitude charts a murder investigation in the peaceful, close-knit community of Fortitude.

The Arctic crime thriller boasts an all-star cast including Stanley Tucci, Sofie Gråbøl, Michael Gambon, »

Fortitude on Sky Atlantic: "It's Nordic Noir with a British slant"

26 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The cast of Fortitude reveal why you should take a trip to the Arctic town in Digital Spy's video interview.

Stanley Tucci, Christopher Eccleston, Jessica Raine, Sienna Guillory and more spoke to DS about Sky Atlantic's chilling new drama and why they wanted to be part of it.

Shot in London and Iceland, the 12-part series has been devised by Simon Donald, the writer behind Low Winter Sun.

"There was an expansiveness that I'm sure informed everybody's performance," Eccleston - who plays Professor Stoddart - said of the Icelandic locations. "It gave it a scale and a sense of wonder."

Michael Gambon, Richard Dormer and Sofie Grabol also star in Fortitude - which follows a murder investigation within a remote Arctic community.

The series begins on Thursday, January 29 at 9pm on Sky Atlantic. »

Fortitude's Sienna Guillory, Luke Treadaway: "It all goes horribly wrong"

23 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sienna Guillory and Luke Treadaway have previewed new Sky Atlantic series Fortitude.

In Digital Spy's exclusive video, the stars discuss their roles as scientists who work at the Arctic Research Centre.

The pair play Natalie Yelburton and Vincent Rattrey in the drama, which will premiere on Thursday, January 29 through Sky Europe.

Guillroy described her character as "a sexually licentious scientist who doesn't trust anyone".

"She has this insatiable need to find things out," the 39-year-old added. "She is an immense explorer of people and things and she's quite mercurial. She's fun."

Treadaway added of Vincent: "He's arrived at Fortitude to study at the Arctic Research Centre, so it is a way of seeing this place to a new arrival. It's a very strange place.

"It's an amazing adventure for anyone. They're really at the cutting edge of where they could be in the world of study in the Arctic but it all goes horribly wrong. »
