Gotham is TCA’s Most Promising New Show

Gotham Fox

Listen, I will personally remain skeptical about FOX’s Batman-based show “Gotham” until I view the pilot myself, but it would seem that most of the television critics out there love it. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Gotham” was named the Most Promising New Show by the Television Critics Association. “Gotham” was also named best drama, with “The Affair” taking second place. Third place went to Shonda Rhimes’ latest offering for ABC, “How to Get Away with Murder.” Other fall shows were also given commendations, such as ABC’s “Black-ish” for best comedy with “Jane the Virgin” and NBC’s “A to Z.” Gina Rodriguez, who stars in “Jane the Virgin,” was named  [ Read More ]

First Look at Allison Williams as Peter Pan

Peter Pan-Allison Williams

The casting of Allison Williams as Peter Pan has had the entertainment world abuzz. NBC cast the “Girls” actress after their success with the live performance of “The Sound of Music,” starring country superstar and “American Idol” winner Carrie Underwood. NBC is hoping their live production “Peter Pan Live!” will bring them the same ratings and notoriety as “The Sound of Music” live production, but, as Entertainment Weekly points out, there’s going to be tons of flying. Can you imagine harness work on live television, especially in today’s live-blogging Twitter landscape? It’s potentially a live-blogger’s goldmine. But until we get to the will-it-work-or-won’t-it factor of the production’s harness work, NBC  [ Read More ]

CeeLo Green’s Twitter Comments Cost Him Reality Show

Animal Planet CeeLo Green Treehouse Masters

CeeLo Green has gotten himself in a world of trouble with his tweets about rape. Green’s Twitter problem stems from his earlier plea Friday of no contest to a felony charge of giving ecstacy to a woman in 2012. Prosecutors didn’t charge for rape because there wasn’t sufficient evidence to charge Green with such a crime. Superior Court Judge Mark Young sentenced Green to three years of formal probation and 45 days of community service. Green took to Twitter to comment on rape, stating that women can only be raped if they are conscious. “[W]omen who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!” he wrote in response to another Twitter user.

Did you know NBC was planning on taking viewers back to the land of Oz? Well, don’t get too excited yet; unfortunately, NBC decided to renege on the adventure. The Hollywood Reporter is stating that NBC has already pulled the plug on their new take on the classic story, “The Wizard of Oz,” called “Emerald City,” even though NBC had already placed a direct-to-series order. The series was slated for a 10-episode pickup with Josh Friedman, the executive producer of “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” writing the script with Matt Arnold, the creator and writer of “Siberia.” The show was a modern and much more dramatic take on the story,  [ Read More ]

The Omen 1976

Lifetime and horror aren’t really synonymous with each other–unless you count the many “abused woman on the run” films the channel used to show. Even still, the network has been known as “television for women,” with their programming gearing towards light romances. However, women love horror too, and since Lifetime has been expanding their portfolio in many different ways, including with unauthorized and/or scandalous biopics, such as “Liz and Dick” and “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story,” the network probably decided it was time to branch out into other areas. Hence their decision to revisit “The Omen.” Lifetime has ordered six episodes of “Damien,” a sequel-of-sorts to “The Omen.”  [ Read More ]
