A modern-day supernatural thriller based on the legend of the titular Westchester Country, N.Y. town.

The ‘Delirium’ pilot featuring Emma Roberts, based on the popular sci-fi novel series, was not picked up.

The first is ’Halt & Catch Fire’, which depicts the personal computing boom in the 1980s. But instead of being set in all-too-familiar Silicon Valley, the setting is Texas’ “Silicon Prairie” (which generally refers to tech community in the Dallas and Fort Worth suburbs). Characters will include a fictional visionary, an engineer and a prodigy whose “innovations directly confront the corporate behemoths of the time.” The drama is created by Chris Cantwell and Chris Rodgers, with Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein (Breaking Bad) as executive producers.

The second is a Revolutionary War drama called ’Turn that’s based on the book Washington’s Spies by Alexander Rose. It’s set in the summer of 1778 and tells the story of New York farmer, Abe Woodhull, “who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America’s fight for independence.” Turn is written by showrunner Craig Silverstein (Nikita) and executive produced by Barry Josephson (Bones).

I might be alone in this, but I really dislike the Cybermen and don’t find them interesting or threatening at all. That said, if anyone is going to take another stab at them, I’m glad it’s Gaiman.


As November gets ever closer, Lionsgate is ready for a massive profit as the box office spikes thanks to the finale of The Twilight Saga with Breaking Dawn Part 2. Though it was originally slated to be the end of the franchise, earlier this year rumors started to swirl that with Lionsgate’s purchasing of Summit Entertainment the studio would be looking into keeping the series going beyond the previously thought end date. Though exact plans have yet to be revealed, it seems that a remake or TV continuation may be taking a back seat as new info has surfaced that we could see a big screen spin-off.

Sepinwall asks all the right questions, not only about the (satisfying, mind-bending, and supremely done) Awake finale, but Killen’s two attempts at network drama in general. 

Looks like we’re going to get at least ten episodes of a new Aaron Sorkin show. Get excited people.

The series centers on a cable news anchor (Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), his newsroom staff (Alison Pill, John Gallagher, Jr., Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, Thomas Sadoski) and their boss (Sam Waterston). The logline: “Together they set out on a patriotic and quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles and their own personal entanglements.”

This is an incredibly detailed, informative article that puts things well into perspective. If you have any interest in quality TV and the entertainment industry check it out.

I hope HBO can find some success in the boxing genre, because FX sure couldn’t.

It would be from the creators of Bravo’s Watch What Happens, which discusses that net’s reality programs immediately after they air. 

I think this is a good move for the network and could hold viewers as well as increase dialogues that are already going on online.

The show will be a fictional drama set during the pro wrestling boom of the 1980s. Certainly an interesting idea, if they can get to the psychological meat found in The Wrestler and definitely in line with the approach behind The Playboy Club.

My only question stems from the fact that the 1980s wrestling boom featured some extremely large, recognizable, would-be celebrities. How are they going to do this? Are they going to cast lookalikes or impersonators? Or the people themselves? (Could you imagine an old Hulk Hogan trying to play a young version of himself?) Or will they not show their face, like they’re doing in Playboy Club. Doesn’t seem likely.
