TV Nation (1994–1995)
TNT has ordered the series “Michael Moore Live from the Apocalypse” (that’s a working title), a new non-fiction series from Moore set to premiere in late fall.
“Live from the Apocalypse” is Moore’s first regular TV show since “The Awful Truth” went off the air in 2000. Before that, he earned a Primetime Emmy – the first ever for a non-fiction series – for his short-lived but fondly remembered “TV Nation.”

“‘Live from the Apocalypse’ will be a raucous gathering place for millions of our fellow citizens in desperate need of a break from the screaming pundits and the purveyors of ‘alternative facts,'” Moore said in a statement. “Our show will be dangerous and relentless. And it will be the destination for those who want to know what
Speaking at a press conference ahead of the release of his documentary Where To Invade Next, Us director Michael Moore has expressed surprise at the prospect of Britain exiting the European Union as a result of the forthcoming referendum.
“It’s not my place to tell you what you should do, but as an outsider I can say ‘Why would you do this?’, Europe exists today in a large part because of you, the UK, you sacrificed and suffered in the 1930s and 40s to save Europe, why would you want to leave?,” he said.
Where To Invade Next, which sees Moore travelling across Europe searching for positive lessons that the Us can learn from other nations, is being released in the UK by Dogwoof tomorrow (June 10) and opens Sheffield Doc/Fest this weekend.

We’re now past the halfway point on season 6, and it’s fair to say Game of Thrones mania has gripped the TV nation. Whether you’re walking on eggshells in fear of spoilers or gobbling up each and every tidbit that is released for HBO’s political flagship, not a day goes by where there isn’t some form of nugget to digest and sure enough, the network has premiered the first photos for this week’s episode, “The Broken Man.”
Pegged to premiere on Sunday, June 5, the series of stills arrive off the back of the official, 30-second preview, teeing up a defining meeting between Jaime Lannister and the Blackfish, along with a troubling development for The High Sparrow in King’s Landing.

Who’S It For? Well, let me tell you a story. I was home sick in middle school. My dad recorded some movies after a free HBO weekend. “Roger & Me” was rated R, and I thought I was about to get away with something. I was wrong. What I’m saying is, it’s not for middle schoolers. It’s for everyone who has ever considered liking documentary films. It’s that simple.
This is the chance to see Moore before he became the Moore you have a definitive love Or hate relationship with.
Before we get to the film, if you subscribe to Moore’s e-newsletter, this is old hate, if not, here’s a message from Michael Moore about his film.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, is a big day for me. Warner Bros. is releasing to you,
Roger & Me, the highly acclaimed and groundbreaking hit film that launched Michael Moore’s career as a documentary filmmaker and a leading nationwide activist, debuts in a new 25th Anniversary Blu-ray™ edition, DVD and Digital HD on October 7 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
Roger & Me is a highly original, personal and satire account of one of America’s greatest urban disasters told against the background of the tough times in Flint, Michigan, Moore’s hometown. The birthplace of General Motors, Flint had been economically decimated by, among other things, plant closings and the elimination of 30,000 Gm jobs. In Roger & Me, Moore gives cinematic voice to his razor-sharp,
The unit, which is to be overseen by senior VP of factual and entertainment David Mortimer, will be tasked with boosting development to create the next generation of high-impact, large-scale, returnable formats for the international market.
The unit will consist of two teams — one focused on shiny-floor entertainment shows, and the other on returnable high-end factual entertainment formats. Recruitment is under way.
The unit will sit alongside NBCU’s existing in-house unscripted production companies, Monkey Kingdom and Chocolate Media in the U.K., Matchbox Pictures in Australia and Lark Productions in Canada, which has a strategic partnership with NBCU Intl. Television Production.
Mortimer said: “By making a significant investment into development, we’re supercharging our unscripted television business.
“We are determined to be the home of the next big international format hit,

The premiere is juicy, because Gregory House is in jail – where I suspect even his hardcore fans believe he belongs. This new atmosphere is Kafka-esque, which adds a new twist to how the crabby disease-detecting doctor will operate. All the fine tuned elements of the House character are here, except the physician that is used to getting his way now will have to contend with shivs and stoolies, including the stunt casting of the former Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) as a cellblock procurer.
At the end of the seventh season, Gregory House (Hugh Laurie
I still have last night’s adventures on my mind, but we cannot ignore our guests, can we? There’s lots on Monday’s visitor, a friend of the show who’s one of my favorites–but this is a fascinating group, made up of a major medical scientist, the head of the Special Olympics, and…an explorer who searches out headshrinkers.
Last week was wonderful, wasn’t it? Music, food, one very handsome and brilliant reporter, and a feisty Nobel Prize winner. And Stephen giving us The Word! Can’t wait for more. Doesn’t he make Mondays happy?
And now, your cast of characters for the week…
Monday, 3/28: Michael Moore
Polemical, satirical, and inimitable: Michael Moore is one of a kind, and you either love him or hate him. (I’m a fan.) Although he began as a journalist for alternative magazines like Mother Jones,
