    PITTSBURGH, PA (May 5, 2015) – Production begins today in and around Pittsburgh, PA on WGN America’s new original drama series “Outsiders,” a tale of struggle for power and control set in the rugged and mysterious hills of Appalachia. A Sony Pictures Television and Tribune Studios production, “Outsiders” is written and created by award-winning playwright Peter Mattei, who executive produces alongside Fedora Entertainment's Emmy® Award winner Peter Tolan ("Rescue Me," "Analyze This"), Emmy Award-winning actor Paul Giamatti ("John Adams," "Sideways"), Dan Carey ("All Is Bright") for Touchy Feely Films and Fedora’s Michael Wimer ("2012," "Rake"). Emmy Award-winning director Adam Bernstein (“30 Rock,” “Fargo”) will direct two installments of WGN America’s 13-episode, one-hour drama, slated to premiere in early 2016.

    "Outsiders" tells the story of the Farrell clan, a family of renegades who've been in the hills of Kentucky since before anyone can remember. Living off the grid and above the law on their mountaintop homestead, they'll protect their world and defend their way of life using any means necessary.

    The ensemble cast for “Outsiders” includes: David Morse (“Treme,” “Hurt Locker”) as Big Foster, a gruff and powerful heir to leadership; Joe Anderson (“The Divide,” “Across the Universe”) as Asa, a member of the Farrell clan looking to rejoin the family after a stint with the outside world; Thomas M. Wright (“The Bridge,” “Top of the Lake”) as Sheriff Wade Houghton, a cop who has a history with the Farrells, and grapples with a few troubles of his own; Ryan Hurst (“Sons Of Anarchy,” “Bates Motel”), as Lil Foster, a massive mountain man and son of Big Foster; Gillian Alexy (“The Americans,” “Damages”) as G'Winveer, a survivor and Asa’s confidante; Kyle Gallner (“American Sniper,” “Veronica Mars”) as Hasil, an intuitive soul who feels rejected by the group; Christina Jackson (“Boardwalk Empire,” “Deception”) as Sally-Ann, a beautiful girl from a mining town who is fascinated by the Farrells and Hasil in particular; Francie Swift (“Hostages,” “House of Cards”) as Haylie, a cunning, all-American community relations manager with the encroaching coal company; and Phyllis Somerville (“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “The Big C”) as Lady Ray, the regal yet tough leader of the Farrell clan.

    Marvel never planned for Captain America and Black Widow to be romantically involved, but a relationship between her and Hawkeye was planned. Whedon fought against it because he wanted to show that men and women can be great friends without having sex.

    Whedon and the studio had the idea to pair up Banner and the Black Widow after their scene in the hut in "The Avengers". Whedon also had Banner toy with a craddle in thar scene in reference to his inability to have children, which he thought was interesting concept.

    Whedon teased several times that Hawkeye would die to make Quicksilver's death more surprising.

    Josh Charles has Sex on the brain.

    In his first dramatic TV gig since exiting The Good Wife, the in-demand actor is joining Masters of Sex‘s upcoming third season for a major arc, TVLine has learned.

    Charles will play Daniel Logan, a self-made businessman working in the scent industry. In an attempt to bottle the smell of sex and market an aphrodisiac to the general public, Dan seeks out Masters and Johnson’s expertise on desire. A charismatic salesman, Dan’s involvement with M and J becomes complicated. Fun fact: The real-life individual on which Charles’ character is based became romantically involved with Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), but it’s unclear if art will imitate life in that respect.


  • 19:45 - Slasher - ChillerTV orders first ever Original Series

    Chiller’s first original series, Slasher, follows the plight of a young woman who returns to the small town where she was born, only to find herself the centerpiece in a series of horrifying copycat murders - based on the widely-known, grisly killings of her parents. The eight-part season serves as the first instalment of an anthology series, where each season exists as a self-contained hybrid of the slasher subgenre of horror films and the traditional murder mystery. Over the course of the Slasher series, a variety of mysteries will unfold, building towards a climactic finale.

    Developed and produced by Shaftesbury in association with Chiller and Super Channel and distributed by Content, Slasher is written and created by Aaron Martin (Killjoys, Degrassi: The Next Generation) and directed by Craig David Wallace (Todd and the Book of Pure Evil). Christina Jennings and Scott Garvie are executive producers. Funded with the participation of the COGECO Program Development and Northern Ontario Heritage Funds, Slasher will commence production in Sudbury this summer. Canadian broadcaster is Super Channel.

    Slasher will premiere on Chiller in late 2015.

    Lies, betrayal, and did we mention lies?
    Everyone — ev-ry-one — is playing an angle on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2, episode 20. Each member of the sizable cast has an individual goal, and they react, er, rather strongly if reality doesn’t dovetail with their intentions.

    About three different cliffhangers
    One cliffhanger might not be super surprising. But “Scars” is the episode which sends Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2 barreling toward its terrifying two-hour finale; that means that almost every member of the various factions ends the episode on a massive — and dangerous — question mark. The last lines of tomorrow night’s episode lay out exactly what kinds of conflict “S.O.S. Parts 1 and 2″ will brutally deliver next week.

    Expect betrayal. Expect secrets. And expect the unexpected.

  • 15:30 - Machinima picks up "Clive Barkers Creepy Pasta" to series
    Thanks to Mac for the heads up.

    Creepypasta is the collective term for short horror stories, fanfiction, videos or other media, shared online with the aim of freaking out the reader. Takes after the act of “copypasta”, postng the same thing again and again across the net, creepypastas can take the form of animated gifs or games as well… they can also include supposedly lost episodes of TV shows that feature death, or something downright odd.

    The most famous creepypasta is probably the horror figure Slender Man, or the fictional arcade game Polybius, which have crept into urban legend, but there are many more including the fake lost Simpsons episode in which Bart Simpson dies, a haunted version of the Majora’s Mask game that have led players to take their lives, or the Lavender Town level of Pokemon that was meant to feature frequencies that only children could hear.

    So who better to visit this than Clive Barker? Taking on the legends of Slender Man, Jeff The Killer and BEN Drowned…. as a series of short films from Machinima called Clive Barker’s Creepy Pasta, and adapted by Barker from submissions sent to him from the creepypasta community.

    Comic book heroes are joining digital television more than ever, and on Monday Machinima announced three projects with DC Entertainment. Presented as part of the Digital Content Upfronts, Machinima and DC are developing a revamped version of Dial H For Hero titled #4Hero, a reality TV competition show for filmmakers to produce a Starman short called DC's Hero Project, and a second season of the animated series Justice League: Gods & Monsters Chronicles set to launch in June.

    #4Hero is described as a live-action "modern adaptation" of Dial H For Hero that will be focused on Nellie Tribble, who founds a smartphone app that turns her into a super hero for a limited amount of time. This social media tweak goes to more than just an app, as the random hero Tribble becomes is based on whatever is trending on social media at the time. Machinima describes #4Hero as a "VFX-heavy action comedy."

    Starman comes to life as a reality show competition called DC's Hero Project. Eight contestants vie in elimination challenges for the reward of developing a live-action short video based on Starman. Machinima promises "well-known guest judges" with Geoff Johns named as one of a panel of judges for the entire show.

    The announced second season of Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chonicles at Machinima comes before the first season even debuts in June. Machinima says the second season will be 10 episodes.
