  • 21:35 - AMC releases Comic-Con Poster for Into the Badlands

  • 21:30 - Breaking Bad - Gennifer Hutchison Talks Better Call Saul, Working With Bryan Cranston & More! - Interview
    Thanks to pani_kon for the heads up.

    Q : How did you come up with that bleak opening scene of BCS? Do you plan to continue doing that as season openers or at least on the upcoming seasons?

    GH : I think Vince and Peter had the idea of the black-and-white teaser very early. I think they liked the idea that Saul really did end up in a Cinnabon after Breaking Bad. And I'm sure we'd love to do more of those teasers, but I can't really say if we will or not.

    Q : BrB didn't have opening credits. How did you come up with the BCS opening credits for each episode? What did they represent? Maybe a subtle image of what is about to come? Or am i reading way too much into this?

    GH : Vince and Peter worked really closely with one of our assistant editors, Curtis Thurber, to come up with that title sequence. I was not really a part of that whole process, but I do love them. I think they're kind of weird and disconcerting... which I think helps sell the offbeat tone of the show.

    Q : Breaking Bad was a visually stunning show. The same applies to BCS too. One of the many reasons of the Breaking Bad's beauty was ABQ and the way it was shot. So, it's easy to assume that ABQ was deeply connected with it. Did you have any conversations about how to make ABQ look unique for BCS too?

    GH : Thank you. Albuquerque is a great backdrop for both shows. The sky there is incredible, and we've been very lucky that we get to take full advantage of the city. Since it's the setting for the show, rather than just standing in for another city, we can really show Albuquerque as Albuquerque. There were definitely conversations about how to make BCS visually interesting but different than Breaking Bad. I know Vince and Peter and our Director of Photography, Arthur Albert came up with a look book that they gave our directors. It was not a rule book, but it was intended to be inspiration. They also talked about using more slow zooms than on BrBa and having the camera locked down as opposed to hand held, like on BrBa. Again, these weren't unbreakable rules, just ideas of how to distinguish the show from Breaking Bad.

  • 09:25 - Vertigo DC Movies (Sandman) Moving to New Line Cinema
    EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros-owned DC Comics imprint Vertigo movie titles are going to come under the auspices of New Line Cinema, I’m told. Warner Bros has its hands full with Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and all of the other tentpole pictures they are planning from DC titles, and so it would make sense for the Vertigo titles to be steered under Toby Emmerich and Richard Brener. The Vertigo titles are considered subversive compared to the WB-steered DC Comics titles with those venerable superheroes.

    Maybe the appropriate film on which to launch a dedicated Vertigo label would be Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, which Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been wrapped up in as director and star since he made his helming debut with Don Jon. Deadline scooped his involvement in the project two years ago. That project, a revered title by Gaiman which fanboys have waited years to see, has a script by Jack Thorne. Other titles in that constellation include Constantine, Preacher and Lucifer. That move is expected imminently, I’m told.


  • 09:20 - MOVIES: Justice League Dark - Guillermo del Toro Exits / No Longer Directing
    Justice League Dark, which is also known as Dark Universe, will remain under the Warners banner. Dark consists of DC’s supernatural heroes such as Constantine, Swamp Thing, Zatanna, and Deadman among others. In the past, Constantine and Swamp Thing and some of those ilk had their own titles published under the Vertigo imprint but have since been integrated into the DC Universe. The movie version will attempt the same.

    Dark, the adaptation, was to have been directed by Guillermo del Toro, but insiders say the filmmaker, who is working on a sequel to Pacific Rim even as he preps his gothic horror movie Crimson Peak, is no longer attached to the project.

  • 05:20 - Upfront 2015: CBS Seen Closing With Lower Volume
    CBS is seen closing upfront sales with lower volume, according to media buyers and other executives, who describe a marketplace in which Madison Avenue is earmarking fewer dollars for TV advertising and also placing more money against new forms of digital media.

    “Agencies and clients continue to value the strength, stability and delivery that our schedule provides, and are increasingly committing dollars against C7,” the network said in a statement, referring to a measure of ad viewership across seven days after an initial air date. “Looking ahead, ‘Thursday Night Football’ and our new latenight lineup will help us build on our number one position and bode well for us throughout the year.”

    In last year’s upfront, CBS secured between $2.38 billion and $2.64 billion, according to Varietyestimates. Speaking to investors in September, CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves said the network had seen a dip of between 4% and 5% in the volume of advance advertising commitments it had secured, compared to the $2.5 billion to $2.75 billion in commitments it attracted in 2013.

    If CBS were to have followed a similar pace of business in this year’s negotiations, the network could have secured between $2.26 billion and $2.53 billion in advance advertising commitments, according to Variety estimates.

    CBS made a push to secure increases in the cost of reaching 1,000 viewers, a measure known as a CPM that is integral to these annual discussions between advertisers and TV networks. Ad buyers suggested CBS was doing deals with CPM hikes of between 3% and 4%, though a person familiar with the situation CBS also sought agreements that called for CPM increases in the mid-single-digit percentage range.

    The amount CBS held back for so-called scatter advertising, or ad inventory that is not purchased in advance, could not be immediately learned. In 2014, CBS sold approximately 74% to 75% of its advertising inventory, compared with a more typical 79%, Moonves disclosed last year.


  • 05:15 - Snowfall - Billy Magnussen To Star In John Singleton FX Pilot
    Billy Magnussen, who plays Kato Kaelin in FX’s upcoming 10-hour limited series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, is expanding his relationship with the network with another project about events from Los Angeles’ recent history. Magnussen has been tapped as one of the leads of Snowfall, FX’s drama pilot from John Singleton about the beginnings of the crack cocaine epidemic in Los Angeles in the 1980s.

    Co-created and co-written by the Boyz n the Hood director Singleton and Eric Amadio and directed by Singleton, Snowfall is set against the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic and its ultimate radical impact on the culture as we know it. It follows three characters on a violent collision course: Franklin Saint, young street entrepreneur on a quest for power; Gustavo Zapata, a Mexican wrestler turned gangster in search of his American dream; and Logan Miller (Magnussen), a prominent family’s “black sheep” desperate to escape his father’s shadow. When he sees an opportunity to reverse his fortunes, Miller risks everything to become a player in the burgeoning cocaine trade in Los Angeles.

As a director, he elevates world class material to even greater heights, balancing heart-wrenching poignancy with surprising moments of levity that are over the top and fun. Quite simply, we love working with this inspired storyteller, and this deal is about extending and deepening our relationship.”

    “I’m incredibly excited to continue my relationship with Dana and Gary, and the rest of the Fox team,” added Daniels. “I’m looking forward to developing content and finding alternative voices for both in front of and behind the camera.”
    Daniels serves as an executive producer and director on “Empire” alongside co-creator/executive producer Danny Strong, showrunner/executive producer Ilene Chaiken, executive producer Brian Grazer and executive producer Francie Calfo, and he directed the pilot episode. On the feature side, he will next start shooting “The Untitled Richard Pryor Biopic” for the Weinstein Company.
