Gruesome & Intense Trailer For Horror Movie ‘Muck’

23 October 2013 10:56 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Independent company WithanO Productions have released the first stomach-churing trailer for their blood-soaked shocker Muck. Film is being described as Evil Dead meets The Hills Have Eyes with genre veteran Kane Hodder and Jaclyn Swedberg leading the film with the following plot synopsis: 

After narrowly escaping an ancient burial ground, long forgotten and buried underneath the marshes of Cape Cod, a group of friends emerge from the thick, marshy darkness, tattered and bloody, lucky to be alive. They have already lost two of their friends in the marsh, presumably dead. They stumble upon an empty Cape Cod vacation house alongside the foggy marsh and break in to take shelter. Whatever was in the marsh is still after them, and soon after one of them goes for help, the rest of the group learns that the evil in the marsh is not the only thing that wants them dead. Something worse, »

NCIS: La Boss Talks 'Brutal' Premiere, Kensi's Big Scare, New Callen Intel, Episode 100 and More

24 September 2013 7:30 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Several lives (and perhaps a bit of love) were left in jeopardy as CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles wrapped its fourth season. Tonight at 9/8c, the drama picks up right where it left off, with Deeks being brutally tortured for intel on Quinn and Sam’s wife dangling from a window ledge. (As previously scooped, Michelle is not easily felled.) Here, showrunner Shane Brennan previews the physical and emotional fallout, his big plans for a milestone hour and hints at a midseason surprise.

NCIS Planning New Orleans-Based Spin-Off, Exec-Produced By Mark Harmon

23 September 2013 4:20 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

NCIS has big plans for the Big Easy.

TV’s most watched drama is preparing an off-shoot that will be set in New Orleans and introduced via a planted pilot to air in spring 2014.

Per our sister site Deadline, NCIS: N’Awlins (as I and perhaps only I shall dub it) will be executive-produced by NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg and series star Mark Harmon.

The NCIS New Orleans office apparently handles cases from Pensacola through Mississippi and Louisiana to the Texas panhandle. But »

CBS' Fall Schedule: A Snap Judgment

16 May 2013 6:25 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Who says CBS doesn’t make bold programming moves? Oh, that’s right: Everyone. But everyone would be slightly wrong! At yesterday’s upfront presentation, the nation’s most-watched — if least-interesting — broadcast television network surprised reporters by revealing that it was not green-lighting two high-profile potential series: A small screen revival of Beverly Hills Cop from executive producer Shawn Ryan (The Shield) starring Brandon T. Jackson as the son of Axel Foley and a recurring Eddie Murphy; and NCIS: Red, starring John Corbett and Kim Raver. Beverly Hills Cop might find a home elsewhere, while NCIS: Red was deemed unworthy »

Where’s the Pilot Pizzazz? Networks Need to Impress

4 May 2013 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As the upfronts approach, it’s hard to scope out pilot pickup buzz at the major broadcast nets this year because there are few clear heat-seekers.

The big bets of this year’s development crop were made early on in the cycle (last summer and fall) and for the most part have retained their front-runner status: ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” with the Whedon clan; CBS’ redo of “Beverly Hills Cop”; NBC’s 22-episode throwdown for the Michael J. Fox domestic laffer; Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher in Fox’s cop comedy “Brooklyn 99″; and the union of David E. Kelley and Robin Williams in CBS’ “Crazy Ones.”

J.J. Abrams has his minimum allotment of two pilots: Fox’s robot-cops vehicle and “Believe” with Alfonso Cuaron at NBC. David Shore is said to be looking promising with ABC drama “Doubt.”

Networks Take the Easy Route With Overload of Spinoff Prospects

19 April 2013 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s time to uproot TV’s overgrown garden of planted spinoffs. Enough already.

(From the pages of the April 16 issue of Variety.)

The major nets are going overboard in efforts to squeeze new shows out of existing skeins with very special backdoor pilot episodes. Sure, it’s an economical way to float a trial balloon for a prospective new series. But viewers aren’t stupid, or patient at a time when savvy critics like Hitfix’s Alan Sepinwall are asking philosophical questions about the limits of space and time when it comes to viewing options. “How much good TV is too much?” he posited in an April 11 post.

Chicago Fire” has done an admirable job for NBC this year in the Wednesday 10 p.m. slot with not much to speak of as a lead-in. But the show is averaging a 1.6 demo rating. With all due respect to Chicago’s hunkiest, »

NCIS: Los Angeles Review: The Assassin Twist

26 March 2013 9:39 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

After last Tuesday's disastrous introduction to Team Red, I didn't have high expectations for "Red, Part II." I hoped it would focus a little more on the new team members and really wanted to see the action that makes NCIS: Los Angeles stand out from other procedurals.

The conclusion to the two-part NCIS: Red backdoor pilot succeeded in providing both, but neither made me excited for the potential new series.

I've been fans of both Kim Raver (Paris) and John Corbett (Roy) on other shows, but their characters were too bland here. I've written before that Raver exudes so much chemistry, she could have a relationship with a wall and it would be believable. I missed that in her performance here, but that's because of the character not her. Paris is awkward. Hetty was pushing for a relationship between her and Callen, but their interactions felt forced rather than natural. »

Coogan will make his Us television series debut in Doubt - which has sprung from the mind of House creator David Shore - as a former cop who's since taken up a new role as a low-rent lawyer, »

NCIS: Los Angeles Review: Introducing Team Red

19 March 2013 11:30 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Well, that was a disappointing launch to the potential new series NCIS: Red.

This week's NCIS: Los Angeles, "Red," was used as a backdoor pilot for a new series in the franchise that initially started with Jag. The Red Team is an elite, mobile unit that can be dispatched to anywhere in the world, living quarters included. As a fan of Kim Raver and John Corbett, I had high hopes for their new series. I'll withhold a final judgment until after next week's conclusion to the two-parter, but it isn't off to a good start.

The highlight of the hour was the return of "The Box." The mysterious box that Kensi had and refused to discuss with Deeks. This time she gave it to him as a gift and said that it had what he has always wanted in it. And he didn't open it! At this point, I almost »

NCIS: La Boss Previews 'Red' Spin-Off, Mulls All-ncis Tuesdays and Teases Kensi/Deeks Twist

18 March 2013 1:26 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

This Tuesday on NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS, 9/8c), a perplexing case in Idaho finds Callen & Co. collaborating on location with the “Red” team, in an two-parter that serves as a pilot episode for a new offshoot of the Jag/NCIS franchise.

Kim Raver (24) and John Corbett (Parenthood) lead the planted pilot’s ensemble, respectively playing Special Agent Paris, the athletic, witty and bold leader of the Red team, and Roy Quaid, a former Special Agent forced to retire from active service who now works as an analyst. Rounding out the mobile unit are Gillian Alexy (Damages) as brainiac/military junkie Clare, »

Good day, Roomies!

Hope the world is treating you well. I certainly can’t complain. In the last week since we’ve touched base, I’m settled into my new L.A.-based digs, mourned the loss of my access to solid public transportation and purchased a car, and started a Fund the Veronica Mars movie piggy bank. Very busy, as you can see. But that brings me to the highlight of my week: Giving y’all scoop on the cool stuff coming up on your favorite shows.

Top Stories

• Notable film actor Peter Sarsgaard is making his way to TV. He’s joining the third season of AMC’s The Killing as “a lifelong convict born into poverty and crime who has been in and out of the system for violent crimes since he was 10. Never wanting to appear weak, every interaction for Tom is a challenge and one he must dominate.”

• ABC is moving its struggling comedy Happy Endings to Friday nights beginning March 29, where two episodes will air back-to-back until the season ends. This is not a promising sign, but at least it’s not canceled … ?

• Finally, NBC is giving its new drama Hannibal a premiere date. The series, which is being helmed by Bryan Fuller (ABC’s Pushing Daisies), will bow Thursday, April 4 at 10 p. »

Kim Raver Joins as Red Team Leader in NCIS: La Spinoff

12 February 2013 10:15 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Over the weekend, the final – presumably – cast member was announced for the NCIS: Los Angeles spinoff and she’s going to be the big lady in charge of the whole deal. Focusing on a mobile team of agents, the spinoff forces its characters to live and work together, crossing the country solving crimes. With that in mind, whoever is put in charge of this Scooby Doo gang will have their work cut out for them trying to manage a team that no doubt will be at each others throats. So let’s all, just for a minute, feel a little sorry for all the crap Kim Raver is going to have to put up with.

Raver (Grey’s Anatomy) will be joining the other announced cast members for the planned two-part episode of NCIS: La that will serve as the backdoor pilot for the spinoff, which is being called NCIS: Red. »
