Latest News Items (What is this?)

  • 00:00 - Dark Matter - Season Finale - Post Mortem with THR: Boss on the Finale and Season 2: "The Past Comes Back to Haunt"
    We are introduced to Alexander Rook and learn that he created Two, whom he calls Rebecca. What was it Rook wanted with Rebecca?

    That will remain a mystery until season two. In the case of Rook, however, there’s something very strange going, essentially why he created her. There’s a conversation at the end of episode 12 where he has the chat with the elderly man in the hospital and he asks, “How old is the body?” There’s something up with this guy, clearly. We’ll find out more about that in season two, especially concerning the fact that they’re making a new prototype as well.

    What lies in wait for season two that you can talk about?

    I said very early on that I had mapped out this five-year game plan. The season two finale will be an even bigger “holy shit” than season one. The first season was about peeling the onion on these characters’ backstories, finding out who they are, and it’s very personal. Season two we blow the doors off, do some world building, the past comes back to haunt and at the same time, the characters wrap up their exploration of their respective backstories. There’s going to be a real driving force early on in the season. In much of the first season the characters were reactive, on their heels, whereas in season two they become proactive. Like I said in the backstory, these are very bad people who are capable of very bad things and I think if we do a second season, it’ll blow you away.

    In the unfortunate scenario that you don’t get a second season, would you look to Dark Horse to continue the series in comic book form?

    To be honest, I always envisioned it as a TV series. I like that in the end of the Stargate Universe, we ended in a way that essentially closed the chapter on a book and season two would be another chapter but season one would also stand alone. Ideally, we would get a season two but Dark Horse could be a possibility. Like I said, I’ve got a season two game plan, I’ve got our 13 stories.

  • 01:30 - Doubt - CBS Pilot - Steven Pasquale Cast in Retooled Pilot as Male Lead
    Steven Pasquale has joined the cast of CBS’ retooled drama pilot Doubt, EW has learned.

    The project stars Katherine Heigl as a smart, chic, successful defense lawyer at a boutique firm who shockingly gets romantically involved with one of her clients who may or may not be guilty of a brutal crime.

    Pasquale (The Good Wife, Bloodline, Do No Harm) will play said client, Billy, a decent, altruistic pediatric surgeon recently accused of murdering a 15-year-old girl many years ago.

  • 00:00 - Poldark - BBC Plan to Adapt All Twelve Novels
    More Here at Mirror

    Poldark hunk Aidan Turner is set to thrill his female fans for another five years.

    BBC chiefs have drawn up a £50million plan to show off his rippling muscles in a new series of the hit drama every year until 2020 – confirming the Sunday Mirror’s exclusive story in May.

    The 32-year-old Irish actor gained a huge fanbase earlier this year as the 18th century Cornish squire when he showed off his six-pack while scything shirtless and skinny dipping.

  • 00:00 - Hindsight - Season 2 - Cancelled by VH1
    VH1 has pulled the plug on drama series “Hindsight,” which was in the midst of preparing to film its second season. The decision comes amid belt-tightening at Viacom cablers and regime change at VH1, where Chris McCarthy took over the general manager post from Tom Calderone in July.

    “Hindsight” had a well-received first season run in January and was renewed in March. The show revolves around a woman who winds up transported back in time 15 years and given the chance to re-do her life. Emily Fox created the series and exec produced with John Norris, Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.

    “Scripted series have been a successful part of VH1’s primetime line-up since 2010 and will continue to be in the future,” VH1 said in a statement. “We love ‘Hindsight’ and couldn’t be more proud of the series. But in this overcrowded and rapidly changing climate, we need to carve out VH1’s distinct place in the scripted marketplace and deliver the biggest audiences possible for our series. As a result, we’re no longer moving forward with a second season of the show.

    “We’re so appreciative of show creator Emily Fox, the cast, and the creative and production teams and look forward to working with them again.”

  • 00:00 - Nielsen will start Tracking Streaming Shows on Services like Netflix, Amazon Prime & Hulu
    Thanks to RD for the heads up

    Global information company Nielsen is months into a program that allows it to track the performance of shows on streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu, the Wall Street Journal reports. This sort of data could offer major studios the ammo they desperately want in order to negotiate higher licensing fees.

    Studios like Twentieth Century Fox have been woefully watching their revenues fall as more and more people opt out of traditional cable TV subscriptions in favor of online streaming services. If major studios had access to viewership data, and if they could see that their shows were performing well, they might be able to extract more money from the likes of Netflix.

    Enter Nielsen, which last year began tracking bulk viewership data on streaming sites. Now, the company reportedly has data on nearly 1,000 individual shows, including the breakdown of how many people watch a specific episode , their age and gender. But it’s not clear whether Amazon Prime and Netflix should be calling the lawyers in just yet: So far, the data is only for viewers in the United States, and doesn’t include mobile devices. Which....significantly limits its meaning.

    Still, it’s interesting to think that major media outfits could eventually use our TV preferences to pressure streaming services into forking over more money. And a little worrisome, if you’re very much enjoying your dirt cheap Netflix subscription. As they say, knowledge is power.

  • 00:00 - MOVIES: Lionsgate Developing Borderlands Movie with Spider-Man Producer
    Lionsgate has announced today they’re developing a big screen version of the fan-favorite video game series Borderlands. Father-son duo Avi Arad (Spider-Man, Iron Man) and Ari Arad will produce the Borderlands movie.

    “We believe that we’ve brought together the right partners, the ideal creative team and the perfect property to launch a new motion picture tent-pole for a global audience,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger. “Part of our strategy in entering the game space under Peter Levin has been to source new brands with built-in audiences that will translate into great films and television shows. The ‘Borderlands’ games don’t pull any punches, and we’ll make the movie with the same in-your-face attitude that has made the series a blockbuster mega-franchise.”

    “Lionsgate has emerged as a major creative force in the global marketplace with an incredible portfolio of brands; our partners at Gearbox have pioneered and cultivated an iconic property; and Avi and Ari Arad are two of the most successful producers of action franchises,” publisher Take-Two Interactive Chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick said. “This alliance is ideally positioned to create a bold, provocative, no-holds-barred motion picture phenomenon that will delight ‘Borderlands” current legions of fans and captivate moviegoers around the world.”

  • 00:00 - Limitless - Desmond Harrington to Guest
    Jennifer Carpenter will be reunited with her former Dexter co-star Desmond Harrington on her new CBS drama Limitless, EW has learned—and they’ll be treading in very familiar territory.

    Harrington (Gossip Girl, The Astronaut Wives Club) will play Casey Rooks, a Special Agent with FBI SWAT who has a background in martial arts, combat sports and meditation, all of which inform his quiet but formidable presence.

    When he is assigned to give Brian basic training, he’s impressed by Brian’s ability to master skills that took Casey years to acquire. Driven by his jealousy, or perhaps another agenda, Casey will keep a close eye on Brian, hoping to uncover his secret. But Casey also has a secret of his own to protect: his covert love affair with Brian’s boss, Agent Rebecca Harris.

    Harrington, who also played Carpenter’s love interest Det. Quinn on Dexter, will appear in at least one episode, with the potential to recur.

  • 00:00 - The Grinder - Christina Applegate to Guest
    Rob Lowe’s Grinder character is about to get a blast from the past, courtesy of Christina Applegate.

    TVLine has learned that Applegate has signed on to guest star in Fox’s freshman comedy as an old high-school flame of Lowe’s alter ego Dean.

    Applegate’s Boise-bred Kelly Summers possesses an appealing, old-fashioned vibe which Dean finds very refreshing. She doesn’t even own a TV, calling herself “more of a book girl.”

    The gig reunites Applegate with Lowe, her co-star in the 2003 flight attendant comedy View From the Top. It also brings the actress back into the Fox fold for the first time since her Married With Children days.

    Applegate will appear in Season 1’s fifth episode, which stars shooting in early September. The Grinder, meanwhile, bows Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 8:30/7:30c.
