It’s been 11 years since the film adaptation of Lauren Weisberger’s 2003 novel The Devil Wears Prada hit the big screen. And though the Meryl Streep / Anne Hathaway film is beloved by fans, an unearthed deleted scene appears to be clouding its legacy for some.

TV show description:
In this suspense drama, Doctor Ellen Sanders (Toni Collette) is a premiere surgeon who's scheduled to operate on the President (James Naughton). She's thrust into a political conspiracy when her family is taken hostage by a rogue FBI agent, Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott). He orders her to assassinate the President by causing his death on the operating table.
Carlisle's highly skilled accomplices include his brother-in-law Kramer (Rhys Coiro), whose loyalty to Carlisle will be tested; quick-tempered and intimidating Archer (Billy Brown), an ex-military man with a razor-sharp tongue; and the only woman
On Hostages, the lives of a prominent surgeon's family are threatened by terrorists who want her to kill the President of the United States. The cast of this thriller includes Toni Collette, Dylan McDermott, James Naughton, Rhys Coiro, Billy Brown, Sandrine Holt, Tate Donovan, Quinn Shephard, and Mateus Ward.
The series debuted to weak ratings back in September and the numbers fell even lower in subsequent weeks. It was clear that this show was going to be cancelled, the only questions was "When?". To their credit, CBS kept Hostages on the air for all 15 episodes.
They've now officially cancelled Hostages. Fortunately for the fans who stuck
At some point in the genesis of most TV and movie projects, the creators will have to offer a "pitch": the compressed summary of the storyline that developed because of the inability or unwillingness of so many producers to read scripts or source material. This process has artistic advantages – encouraging writers to find the core of their characters or action – but can also be disastrous if it leads to the green-lighting of a series that is more compelling as a pitch than as a commission.
Hostages – which started its UK run on Channel 4 on Saturday night – already has the worrying feel of an idea that sounds brilliant as two lines, but wearisome as 15 episodes. Compare it, for example, with Homeland, a
On the two final episodes -- titled "Suspicious Minds" and "Endgame" -- Duncan (Dylan McDermott) discovers Sandrine's (Sandrine Holt) betrayal and decides to use her to save Nina (Francie Swift) and Sawyer (Lola Cook). Before Ellen (Toni Collette) operates on President Kincaid (James Naughton), the First Lady (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) confronts her and forces Ellen to tell the truth about the assassination plot.
What do you think? If you've seen the finale, was it a satisfying ending to the series? Do you think they could have realistically made another season -- either with some of the same characters or, with completely new ones? Would you have
In "Suspicious Minds," Col. Thomas Blair (Brian White), a leader of plot to assassinate the president, kidnaps FBI Agent Duncan Carlisle's (Dylan McDermott) wife and daughter.
Ah, karma. Carlisle, of course, is the leader of a band of kidnappers who have been holding surgeon Ellen Sanders (Toni Collette) and her family hostage, demanding she kill the president during surgery.
Carlisle wanted in on the plot so he could harvest the president's bone marrow to save his wife, who is dying from leukemia. Nina (Francie Swift) is the daughter the president (James Naughton), fathered when he raped a reporter in 1978.
Carlisle has proven to be a decent man,
On Hostages, Toni Collette plays Ellen Sanders, a doctor who's set to perform a fairly rudimentary surgical procedure on the President (James Naughton). When a group of men (led by Dylan McDermott) invade her home and take her family hostage, she's faced with a lose-lose decision. If she doesn't cause the President to die on the operating table, the terrorists will kill her family. The cast also includes Rhys Coiro, Billy Brown, Sandrine Holt, Tate Donovan, Quinn Shephard, and Mateus Ward.
The Monday night drama got off to a mediocre start in the ratings, drawing a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.41 million
