  • 23:35 - #blessed & Click Bait - Faking It Showrunner Carter Covington Sets 2 New Comedy Projects At MTV
    Carter Covington, executive producer/showrunner of MTV’s popular comedy series Faking It, has sold two new half-hour single-camera comedy projects to the cable network. He is collaborating on both with writers from Faking It.

    The first comedy, #blessed (working title), which is still in negotiations, is done with Faking it co-producer Dan Steele. Loosely based on Steele’s experience growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness, the project centers on a high school student who has been homeschooled his whole life but wants to go to a public school and secretly starts attending one. “If Faking It is about finding your sexual identity, #blessed is about finding your spiritual identity,” Covington said.

    The second project, Click Bait (working title), is done with Faking It story editors Carrie Rosen and George Northy. It is a quirky ensemble comedy following aspiring YouTube stars.

  • 20:10 - The Originals - Season 3 - Danielle Campbell Interview
    Thanks to Bazooka for the heads up.
    Alloy Entertainment: So The Originals is back in full swing. After that crazy premiere, what can viewers expect next in terms of all the sire line drama? Where does Davina fit in, considering how she was working on a bloodline spell for Mikael in season 2?
    Danielle Campbell: I can’t necessarily explain how yet, but this season you will definitely see Davina, as the leader and queen of witches, struggling with her powers. So that comes into play. And you will definitely see a lot of the sire line issues come into play, and learn a lot more about the Mikaelsons’ family history. I think that the audience will find [the latter] especially intriguing.

    Alloy Entertainment: On the real though, what’s up with Davina crying tears of blood? How dark is she going to get in the upcoming episodes?
    Danielle Campbell: Although I can’t tease how dark she’ll get, I can say that it’s been really cool to watch Davina’s transition. She started off as this scared girl in the attic and now she’s this strong, powerful witch who’s leading other witches. However, she has a lot of responsibility to deal with and you definitely start to see her struggle with what’s going on. She genuinely cares for her coven — she loves them and wants to protect them in any way that she can — but as the witches fight back against [the vampires], she’s going to be conflicted about how to go about it.

  • 20:10 - The Originals - Season 3 - Jason Dohring Interview
    Thanks to Bazooka for the heads up.
    TVLINE | Does it feel weird being on a supernatural show and not playing a vampire?

    Yeah. I remember drinking that blood, and it was just…not the best. At the same time, it’s fun because you get to do all the cool stuff like fly around — at least our vampires were flying and s–t. Usually, they live the high life — driving Ferraris and having loads of money and being in people’s faces and just not caring. So this is very different because you have a much more strict set of rules and limits to who your character can be.

    TVLINE | What are you enjoying about portraying a human on a supernatural show?

    I enjoy the detective element of it because there are certain guidelines to the character. A detective can’t be “blah” or whatever. He’s just had training. Coming out of being on shows where I was kid and a spoiled brat, to find roles that are like a teacher [such as on Ringer], it’s just been cool because it’s more acting rather instead of emotional-based. There’s different characters features that are interesting to play with.

  • 02:30 - Zone of Silence - NBC Developing Paranormal Drama with Eva Longoria, Jason Blum & Eric Winter Producing
    After co-starring in Blumhouse’s horror movie Visions, Eva Longoria has re-teamed with Jason Blum to executive produce together a genre-themed drama project, which has been set up at NBC. Zone of Silence, which also is executive produced by actor Eric Winter (The Mentalist), is based on a phenomenon/urban myth in the Mapimí desert area of Mexico where radio signal supposedly does’t travel, making for a total communications blackout.

    Zone of Silence, written by Rashad Raisani (NBC’s Allegiance), focuses on the area acting like a domestic Bermuda Triangle, an invisible interference which appears in the southwest and not only wreaks havoc on communications but is central to key myths, folklore and legends. When a group of ICE agents go missing under odd circumstances within the “zone”, a task force is formed to find them. Science clashes with the unexplained on a weekly basis while the larger search to explain the disappearance continues.

    Written/executive produce by Andy Stern, Personal Motives centers on a high profile news anchor who has the unfortunate experience of seeing her husband arrested for murder live on-air during the evening newscast. Their lives are, of course, torn apart as she works desperately to try to prove his innocence.

  • 01:30 - Hansel & Gretel - Paramount Changing from Film to TV Series?
    EXCLUSIVE: Paramount is scratching a plan for a sequel to Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, the 2013 sleeper-hit action film that starred Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton. I’m hearing that plans to make a sequel have been halted — they’d set a director in Bruno Aveillan and everything–and that instead they are formulating a new plan that likely will make it a cable series through Paramount TV. Gary Sanchez will produce it and MGM is also a partner in the TV effort.

    It is unclear whether Renner, Arterton and the rest of the feature gang on Hansel & Gretel will be involved in the TV project, but it sounds like they’ll start from scratch. Stay tuned.

    Gregory Jacobs, Steven Soderbergh,
    Michael Sugar And Clive Owen Executive Produce Series,
    Created By Executive Producers Jack Amiel & Michael Begler

    New York City, 1901: The Knick faces an upheaval, as Dr. John Thackery’s absence (due to his hospitalization for cocaine addiction), a dearth of affluent patients, and financial missteps have led to the board’s decision to shutter The Knickerbocker Hospital in favor of a new building uptown. In this world of corruption, invention and progress, everyone is searching for the new path that will help him or her survive. Whether it’s a path toward justice, freedom, love or just plain survival, nothing comes easy.

    As relocation plans proceed, the gifted but under-appreciated Dr. Algernon Edwards jockeys to become Thackery’s successor as chief of surgery, while fellow doctors, nurses, nuns and administrators grapple with challenges at work and in their private lives.

    Starring Clive Owen (Emmy® nominee for HBO’s “Hemingway & Gellhorn”; Oscar® nominee and Golden Globe winner for “Closer”), André Holland (“Selma,” “42”), Eve Hewson (“Enough Said“) and Juliet Rylance (“Frances Ha”), THE KNICK kicks off its ten-episode second season FRIDAY, OCT. 16 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on CINEMAX, followed by other episodes debuting subsequent Fridays at the same time. Steven Soderbergh (Oscar® winner for “Traffic”; Emmy® winner for HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra”; Emmy® nominee for season one) directs the entire season of the show, which recently received an Emmy® in the category of Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Period Program (One Hour or More).

    The returning ensemble cast includes Jeremy Bobb (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “House of Cards”), Michael Angarano (“The Stanford Prison Experiment,” “Empire State”), Chris Sullivan (“The Drop,” HBO’s “The Normal Heart”), Cara Seymour (“I Origins,” “An Education”), Eric Johnson (“Rookie Blues”), David Fierro (“Birdman : Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)”), Maya Kazan (“Frances Ha,” HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”), Grainger Hines (“Lincoln”), Leon Addison Brown (“Lincoln: A Walk Among the Tombstones”), Tom Lipinski (“Sometimes I Lie”), Charles Aitken (“The Girl on the Train”), Jennifer Ferrin (“Falling Skies”), Perry Yung (“Royal Pains”), Rachel Korine (“Spring Breakers”) and Michael Nathanson (“Side Effects”). Cast newcomers include Andrew Rannells (HBO’s “Girls”), Zaraah Abrahams (“Da Sweet Blood of Jesus”), Annabelle Attanasio (“Anchovies”), Arielle Goldman (“The Zebra Room”) and Emily Kinney (“The Walking Dead”).

    Gregory Jacobs (HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra”; “Magic Mike XXL”), Steven Soderbergh, Michael Sugar (“The Fifth Estate,” “Rendition”) and Clive Owen executive produce. The writing team of Jack Amiel & Michael Begler (“Raising Helen,” “Big Miracle”) writes and executive produces. Michael Polaire (HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra”) produces. Steven Katz is the writer of season two episodes five and eight, and is co-executive producer.

    The production designer is two-time Emmy®-winner Howard Cummings (HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra”); the costume designer is Emmy®-winner Ellen Mirojnick (HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra”); and the casting director is Emmy®-winner Carmen Cuba (HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra”). Composer Cliff Martinez (“Drive”) is responsible for THE KNICK’s critically acclaimed score. Emmy®-winner Justin Raleigh (“American Horror Story: Freak Show,” Emmy® nominee for season one) designed the special effects makeup and prostheses for the series.

    Dr. John Thackery (Clive Owen), the Knickerbocker’s chief of surgery, is a brilliant but drug-addled surgeon who pushes the boundaries of medicine, morality and race while battling personal demons.

    Dr. Algernon Edwards (André Holland) is a gifted, Harvard-trained surgeon, whose determination to be recognized for his abilities is put to the test as he faces opposition and bigotry among his peers, despite his considerable talents.

    Lucy Elkins (Eve Hewson), once a naïve young nurse from West Virginia, has seen her personal and professional veneer hardened by heartbreak and her abilities challenged as she struggles to find her way.

    Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance), formerly head of the hospital’s social welfare office and chair of the hospital’s board of trustees, must deal with her new married life and her husband’s expectations to forego her job, as well as the community activism and moral responsibility she has come to embrace.

    Herman Barrow (Jeremy Bobb) is an obsequious, deceptively greedy hospital administrator whose seizes the opportunity of the new Knick’s construction to line his pockets and pay off his debts.

    Dr. Bertram “Bertie” Chickering, Jr. (Michael Angarano) has grown from an eager surgeon-in-training to a talented doctor whose allegiance to The Knick comes into question.

    Tom Cleary (Chris Sullivan) is a jovial Irish ambulance driver whose crude, opportunistic behavior takes a turn to help a friend in need.

    Sister Harriet (Cara Seymour) is an Irish Catholic nun who ran the orphanage affiliated with The Knick, until it was discovered she was compassionately terminating pregnancies for the wealthy and the poor.

    Dr. Everett Gallinger (Eric Johnson) is an aspiring, disgruntled surgeon on Thackery’s staff, whose personal problems, innate bigotry and hatred for Dr. Edwards affect his career.
    Jacob Speight (David Fierro) is a health department inspector.

    Eleanor Gallinger (Maya Kazan), the troubled wife of Dr. Gallinger, returns to her home following a brutal stay in the sanatorium, where she was placed after the death of her infant daughter.

    Captain August Robertson (Grainger Hines) is Cornelia’s father and the leading benefactor of The Knick.

    Philip Showalter (Tom Lipinski) is Cornelia’s husband.

    Henry Robertson (Charles Aitken) is Cornelia’s brother.

    Dr. Levi Zinberg (Michael Nathanson), chief surgeon at Mt. Sinai, is Thackery’s rival.

    Opal (Zaraah Abrahams) is a woman from the past.

    Ping Wu (Perry Yung) is a Chinatown druglord.

    Genevieve Everidge (Arielle Goldman) is a fiery young journalist.

    Dorothy Walcott (Annabelle Attanasio) is Eleanor Gallinger’s sister.

    Frazier H. Wingo (Andrew Rannells) is the architect of the new Knickerbocker Hospital.

    Junia (Rachel Korine) is Barrow’s mistress

    Nurse Daisy Ryan (Emily Kinney) works at The Knick.

    Rich in period detail, THE KNICK captures the era’s unique zeitgeist, when huge strides in technology transformed medicine and treatments that were once thought impossible became commonplace. The series also addresses slowly changing social norms at a time when the gulf between rich and poor was profound, and the idea of racial equality a distant dream.

    Creating 1901 New York was left to production designer Howard Cummings, who recently received his second Emmy® for season one of THE KNICK. Exteriors were recreated in and around Brooklyn and in downtown Manhattan, while interiors of the Knickerbocker Hospital, along with additional sets, were filmed at Cine Magic East River Studio soundstages. The streets of Yonkers, NY were used to recreate Chinatown in San Francisco.

    Season two’s eye-catching costumes were created by Emmy®-winning costume designer Ellen Mirojnick. From period hospital uniforms to men’s impeccably tailored suits, from women’s ornate ball gowns to provocative dance-hall attire, she definitively captures the disparity in the clothing of the haves and the have-nots in the turn-of-the-century New York.
