J.K. Rowling Adaptation Series ‘C.B. Strike’ Premieres June 1st On Cinemax

The Cinemax series adapted from J.K. Rowling’s work, C.B. Strike, finally has a debut date so we can all mark our calendars. It may just be the anglophile in me, but the series, which stars Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger, looks like just the right mix of mystery and “British television” sensibilities. The show is based on the series of books Rowling wrote under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith and the series kicks off with three one-hour episodes based on “The Cuckoo’s Calling,” the first book in the series. The series follows Cormoran “C.B.” Strike (Burke), a war veteran turned private detective, and his protege (Grainger). In the first episode, Strike is sought out by the brother of a supermodel whose death was ruled a suicide. Strike has trouble getting anywhere with the authorities, but interviews neighbors, friends and family of the victim, chasing the truth. While

Jemele Hill is leaving her position as co-anchor of ESPN’s Sportscenter — but President Trump isn’t to blame.

Last fall, Hill was suspended from her position for two weeks after she tweeted that Potus is a “white supremacist”. The tweet caught the attention of the White House, who said that her actions were a “fireable offense.”

Hill, though, made clear on Twitter that her exit — to join ESPN’s sports/social/cultural issues site, The Undefeated, was purely her choice.

USA Cancels ‘Damnation,’ Pulls Plug on ‘American Rust’

USA Network has canceled drama “Damnation” after one season. The NBCUniversal-owned cable channel also on Thursday pulled the plug on “American Rust,” which received a straight-to-series order just two months ago.

In its lone season, “Damnation” attracted few viewers. Co-produced by Universal Cable Production and Netflix, which had streaming rights to the series, the show starred Logan Marshall-Green, Killian Scott, Chasten Harmon, Sarah Jones, Melinda Page Hamilton, and Joe Adler in a drama set in 1930s middle America. The show was executive produced by Tony Tost, James Mangold, Guymon Casady, and Daniel Rappaport.

Season one averaged a 0.18 rating in the 18-49 demo according to Nielsen live-plus-ame day numbers and 682,000 total viewers.

In her review of the series for Variety, Sonia Saraiya wrote, “The trouble with ‘Damnation,’ if it can be summed up into one problem, is that the show is a clear homage to HBO’s golden-age drama “Deadwood,” which brought

Third & Final Trailer for Train Movie 'The Commuter' with Liam Neeson

"You're trying to set me up." Lionsgate has debuted the third and final trailer for the action-thriller train movie starring Liam Neeson, titled The Commuter. This trailer doesn't waste time setting up the story or the first conversation, it just gets right into it and shows some of the action. From the same director of Non-Stop (the airplane movie) and The Shallows, this is about solving a crime on the train. Neeson plays an insurance salesman who gets mixed up in a conspiracy on his daily train commute home. Vera Farmiga, a "mysterious stranger", sits with him for a chat and things get very interesting. The cast includes Patrick Wilson, Killian Scott, Jonathan Banks, Sam Neill, Elizabeth McGovern, Florence Pugh, and Damson Idris. I am still curious about this, but really not expecting much with this January release date. Here's the third & final trailer (+ poster) for Jaume Collet-Serra's The Commuter,

‘Damnation’ Review: USA Network’s Overwrought Western Series Takes a Sledgehammer to Happiness and Subtlety

‘Damnation’ Review: USA Network’s Overwrought Western Series Takes a Sledgehammer to Happiness and Subtlety
Traditionally, when describing a show like “Damnation,” it’s customary to describe how the central players figure into the very clear battle it’s drawn for itself. Farmers in a rural Iowa community are fighting Depression-era predatory price-fixing efforts by going on strike. Banking interests are using all the tools at their disposal to gobble up whatever’s left once their resolve is broken. But at the center, two rivals emerge: Seth Davenport (Killian Scott), a preacher with a heart of pyrite and Creeley Turner (Logan Marshall-Green), a corporate minion with murky intentions.

That ambiguity is one of the sole instances where “Damnation” leaves things to interpretation. Aside from some shifting allegiances and some muddled origin stories, everything else about life in this Iowa town is presented in the extreme. Poverty is moving in like a plague. Financial ambitions among its wealthy characters knows no limits. Calls for rebellion are made in no uncertain terms.

‘Damnation’ Review: Damn Shame How Flat This Depression-Era USA Drama Is

Debuting tonight on USA Network, Damnation is a heartland-set tale straight out of the Great Depression that unfortunately ends up being as flat as the Great Plains themselves. Led with solid turns by Ripper Street alum Killian Scott and Quarry vet Logan Marshall-Green, as I say in my video review above, the 10-episode first season of the Tony Tost-created period drama neither sinks nor soars. In fact, with its list of Peak TV checked boxes of anti-heroes and other…

Exclusive clip: Burying the bodies on USA’s gritty new series Damnation

“God and greed, charlatans and prophets” is the accurate tagline for USA Network’s Damnation, a 1930’s period drama set in the American heartland. In our exclusive clip, we see a preacher who is burying three bodies. The twist? He shot them. These were the lean years of America, when the calamity of the dust bowl, the financial fallout of the Great Depression and the rise of big money corporations using and abusing laborers at every turn made everyday life a hard thing to bear.

Second Trailer for Train Thriller 'The Commuter' Starring Liam Neeson

"Most of us ride this train every day. We nod, we say hello, but how much do we really know about each other?" Lionsgate has debuted the second trailer for the action-thriller train movie starring Liam Neeson, titled The Commuter. From the same director of Non-Stop (the airplane movie) and The Shallows, this movie is basically Unstoppable (the train movie) meets Non-Stop (or even Source Code). Neeson plays an insurance salesman who gets mixed up in a criminal conspiracy on his daily train commute home. Vera Farmiga, a "mysterious stranger", sits with him for a chat and things get very interesting. The cast includes Patrick Wilson, Killian Scott, Jonathan Banks, Sam Neill, Elizabeth McGovern, Florence Pugh, and Damson Idris. This looks like it has tons of action and will be intense to watch, I'm intrigued. Enjoy. Here's the second trailer (+ new poster) for Jaume Collet-Serra's The Commuter, direct from

‘Damnation’ Trailer: ‘Hell and High Water’ Director David McKenzie Ignites a Battle Between the Rich and the Poor
USA Network’s newest original drama “Damnation” isn’t based on the Great Depression taught in schools nationwide. Instead, it’s a fictional account of cultural revolution. The network has released a new trailer for the series, which is set to premiere Tuesday, November 7 at 10/9 p.m.

Damnation” tells the tale of Iowa preacher Seth Davenport (Killian Scott) who vows to instigate a farmer’s strike. “If your neighbor is siding with wealth,” Davenport pleads in the recently released trailer, “then you need to recognize that neighbor for what he is — the enemy.”

Seth fights corruption and corporate greed unknowingly beside a professional strikebreaker, Creeley Turner (Logan Marshall-Green), who has been hired by an industrialist tycoon. But as Turner and Davenport are set to squabble, those around them don’t know about their secret, violent past.
