Ratings for last year’s Peter Pan Live! were disappointing enough that NBC felt the need to publicly blame stars Allison Williams and Christopher Walken. Nevertheless, the network is pressing onward with its now annual tradition of staging live televised musicals, with The Wiz as their next target.
Naturally, The Wiz live show will involve some high-profile stunt-casting. But at least this one feels genuinely intriguing: Cirque du Soleil is teaming with NBC for The Wiz live show, setting up Broadway run. Get all the details on The Wiz live show after the jump. Read More »

Arrow and The Flash are doing so well for The CW that the network plans to spin off a new show from those two connected series. We know this new series will feature a host of other DC Comics characters, some of whom have shown up in one of those two shows, and others who are new to TV and film altogether. One of the not-quite-new characters on the Arrow/The Flash spinoff show will be Hawkgirl, with Ciara Renée cast in the role. And one of the totally new to TV characters will be Rip Hunter, played by Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who). Read More »
The film that most directly influences May’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In that film, the group known as S.H.I.E.L.D. falls when its revealed that they’ve long been infiltrated by the evil group, Hydra. At the end of that movie, S.H.I.E.L.D is almost totally gone and in the new movie, it’s The Avengers who are protecting the world.
Of course, we know S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t totally gone because there’s a TV show, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, that’s still going on. In the show’s first season, we saw how the events of The Winter Soldier directly influenced and changed the show and in Tuesday’s episode, One Door Closes, we’ll see more of what happened on that day. The show flashs back to “The Day S.H.I.E.L.D Fell” to show what Bobbi (Adrianne Palicki) was doing that day along with Mack (Henry Simmons) and even Agent Robert Gonzales (Edward James Olmos), who kept S.H.I.E.L.D. together after the attacks.

Over the weekend, a new rumor cropped up about Star Trek returning to television. We’ve heard similar talk before, with details ranging from a couple possible new series, to a new animated Trek.
This time, the report is partially based in the old Star Trek: Federation pitch made a decade ago, which was then in development as a possible CBS series, with Robert Burnett, Bryan Singer, and Christopher McQuarrie as producers and a script from Geoffrey Thorne. The new report isn’t so much that Federation is back in action (it’s not) but that some of that team could again be cooking up a show at CBS. The new Star Trek TV rumor is below. Read More »
