New Character Portraits for Salem Season 3, Premiering November 2nd

5 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Ahead of its November 2nd premiere on Wgn America, Salem Season 3 is teased in new character portraits featuring faces both familiar and new.

Press Release: Los Angeles, August 25, 2016 – In anticipation of the season three premiere of Wgn America’s hit supernatural thriller “Salem,” the network has released character portraits featuring the twisted and sexy cast, including the first-look at Samuel Roukin who portrays The Sentinel, a fallen angel and protector of the Devil boy (Oliver Bell). Season three of “Salem” will debut Halloween Week, Wednesday, November 2.

The third season of “Salem” dawns with the triumph of the witches’ plan to remake the New World by bringing the devil to earth and making Salem his capital. But the devil is a liar, and instead of a New World free from murderous Puritan hypocrisy, his own plan will bring nothing but death and slavery with the ultimate aim of leading humanity to destroy itself. »

Newswire: Ben Affleck to direct and star in Witness For The Prosecution remake

19 August 2016 2:33 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

As reported by Variety, Ben Affleck is in talks to direct and star in a remake of Billy Wilder’s 1957 Agatha Christie adaptation Witness For The Prosecution. The original film was nominated for six Academy Awards, so this project could be a return to the prestige of Argo-era Affleck. You know, back before he was swallowed up by the Justice League movie machine and had to deal with resting a movie’s emotional climax on the realization that his character’s mom and another character’s mom had the same name.

The original Witness For The Prosecution is about a lawyer who is tasked with representing a man accused of murdering a widow who left him a bunch of money in her will, with Affleck most likely playing the lawyer. The remake is being written by Christopher Keyser (Tyrant, Party Of Five), with Affleck, Jennifer Todd, and Affleck ...

19 August 2016 1:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Classic courtroom drama Witness For The Prosecution is getting the remake treatment, with Ben Affleck to direct and star...

Ben Affleck is negotiating with Fox to direct and star in an upcoming Witness For The Prosecution remake, the classic courtroom thriller directed by Billy Wilder.

The 1957 film noir courtroom drama Witness For The Prosecution was a film adaptation of a play by Agatha Christie, originally written in 1925. Witness For The Prosecution starred the legendary Marlene Dietrich, Charles Laughton, Elsa Lanchester and Tyrone Power. Adapted by Larry Marcus, Harry Kurnitz and Wilder, the movie got six Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor and Actress and Best Director - meaning that the remake has big shoes to fill both in terms of its acting pedigree as well as critical acclaim. Indeed, the movie (and play) has a great pay-off that still packs a punch today.

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 5 Review: A Rock and a Hard Place

4 August 2016 2:46 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, and adieu to Molly.

With the first lady of Abuddin fleeing to Germany on Tyrant Season 3 Episode 5, the number of Al Fayeeds continues to shrink.

Barry isn't handling his country much better than he is his family, but Abuddin may be able to find hope in a new leader – who that will be remains to be seen.

Watch Tyrant Season 3 Episode 5 Online

Molly's exit was fairly predictable after her pill binge on Tyrant Season 3 Episode 5, but I'm glad the writers decided to send her to a treatment center instead of killing her. Jennifer Finnigan is real asset to the show; we've already lost Ashraf Bahrom's Jamal this year. 

Besides that, her plea to leave highlighted some of the problems in the Al-Fayeed marriage that her death would not have. Barry's clingy check-ins with his wife seem to have more to do with his own guilt than her needs. »

NBC Orders Pilot From Warren Leight and Paul Haggis, Developing ‘Waking Lions’ From Gideon Raff

2 August 2016 10:24 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC has ordered Warren Leight and Paul Haggis’ “Salvation” to pilot, and is developing the Gideon Raff drama “Waking Lions,” Variety has learned.

Leight, who recently exited “Law & Order: Svu” as showrunner, has penned the script for “Salvation,” a medical series being described by NBC as the “first real-time hospital ‘extreme event’ drama.” The story begins on the Fourth of July weekend, when a massive storm hits New York City and leaves Our Lady of Salvation hospital as the last open trauma center in Brooklyn. The trouble is, Our Lady of Salvation was recently decimated by downsizing, leaving few doctors on hand to handle the hordes of incoming patients. “Salvation” is a Sony Pictures Television production.

Raff’s “Waking Lions” will be based on the novel of the same name by Israeli author Ayelet Gundar-Goshen. In the international best-seller, Beverly Hills doctor Eitan Green hits and kills an African immigrant on his drive home one night »

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 4 Review: A Prayer for Our Daughters

28 July 2016 2:51 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

This is starting to be down right Shakespearean.

Molly roamed the palace doing her best impression of Ophelia on Tyrant Season 3 Episode 4, while Leila revealed that Jamal wasn't Ahmed's real father, but rather his uncle.

Sammy went looking for love in all the wrong places, and Barry was too busy planning revenge to deal with his family.

Watch Tyrant Season 3 Episode 4 Online

And as often happens in Shakespeare, vengeance doesn't lead to anything good. Mainly, it ends with everybody dying. And the Al Fayeed clan is already half gone. I wasn't too worried about Molly even before I saw the previews – the deaths have to slow down or there won't be any characters left.

Jennifer Finnigan did an amazing job of portraying a mother's grief. Where a great performance can sometimes be credited equally to the writing team, or the director, this was all her. The most powerful moments weren't because of her lines, »

The Strain Stars (Including a Rappin' Setrakian!) Recap the Scares-to-Date

Now, this doesn’t suck.

With Season 3 of The Strain almost just a month away, the FX horror drama released at San Diego Comic-Con a video in which Kevin Durand and David Bradley (who play Vasily Fet and Abraham Setrakian) approach show boss Carlton Cuse with an alternative to the dry “Previously On The Strain…” recap clips.

Cuse is bearish on the notion, but boy, are his actors up to the task.

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 3 Review: The Dead and the Living

21 July 2016 2:47 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It is not a good time to be an Al Fayeed. 

The family continued to decrease in size on Tyrant Season 3 Episode 3, with the losses of both Jamal and Emma.

I'm starting to wonder if there will be anybody left by the end of the season. The death toll is starting to rival the one on Game of Thrones!

Watch Tyrant Season 3 Episode 3 Online

Jamal finally bit it, and I don't think anybody in Abuddin will be shedding tears over his demise. We in the audience might miss his outrageous outbursts and his fascinating, guilt-ridden, narcissistic personality, but we'll be the only ones. And even while I'll miss him, I think he hung on too long.

I can see how Ahmed's discovery and subsequent patricide was a way to wrap a plot thread that's been dangling since Tyrant Season 1 Episode 1, but I would have been much more satisfied if he'd died at Nusrat's hand. »
