Disney Animation has been working on a Frozen 2 for the past several months, but we’ve still got a while to wait before the film actually hits theaters. In the meantime, though, we’ll get to see the gang back together again in a slightly different form. The Disney Channel is teaming with the LEGO Group for Frozen Northern Lights, a “brand extension” that will include a series of brand-new animated shorts. Read More »

The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, passed away in the summer of 2009. In fact, later this week it will have been exactly 7 years since we lost the iconic singer. Now the last days of his life will be recounted on television in the form of an event series in development.
J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot Productions banner are teaming with author and TV/radio personality Tavis Smiley for a series that will adapt the latter’s book Before You Judge Me: The Triumph and Tragedy of Michael Jackson’s Last Days (hitting shelves today) at Warner Bros. Television. Find out more about the Michael Jackson TV series after the jump. Read More »

It’ll be a few more weeks before we see how Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters has turned out, but Sony isn’t waiting to double down on that property. Sony Pictures Animation has just announced a new Ghostbusters animated TV series to hit in 2018, titled Ghostbusters: Ecto Force. The biggest twist? This new show will be set in the year 2050 — decades after the events of the old Ghostbusters or the new one. Read More »
Showtime‘s Penny Dreadful has been sitting at the top of my “Man, I really should get around to catching up on that soon” list for longer than I’d like to admit. I watched the first season and found it to be a dark and delightful riff on classic horror icons, a gothic but humane reinterpretation of the Universal monster formula that had no right to work as well as it did. And now, I know exactly how many episodes I have left in the queue, as the series’ third season finale was also a surprise series finale. Apparently, the words “The End” flashed across the screen and everything, making it all very definitive.

HBO hasn’t been shy about letting everyone know that “Battle of the Bastards” would feature the biggest battle we’ve seen on Game of Thrones and for the most part, it delivered. However, this episode wasn’t just about the action. The bloody showdown between House Stark and House Bolton marked a huge turning point in the fortunes for many of the show’s most important characters and a few major characters were wiped off the game board entirely.

When production was halted on HBO’s television adaptation of the sci-fi feature Westworld, some were worried that the show was on shaky ground before it had even premiered on the cable network. Thankfully, J.J. Abrams came around to put a positive spin on the situation saying that executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy just needed more time to fine tune the final four scripts for the show’s first season. Now that a new Westworld trailer has debuted, it looks like this show will be worth the wait.
Over the weekend, HBO debuted a new Westworld trailer showing a whole bunch of new footage from the show that will explore artificial intelligence and consciousness in a future where an elaborate amusement park is brought to life by sophisticated androids. But what happens when these creations begin explore what it means to be human by testing the boundaries of their existence and significance, thereby threatening the humans who have controlled them for so long?

Yes, Clone Club will be back after tonight’s Orphan Black season 4 finale — but our time together is definitely nearing an end. BBC America has just renewed the sci-fi drama for a fifth season, which will be its last. In related news, star Tatiana Maslany is probably on Expedia this very minute looking up flights for a much-deserved vacation. Read More »
I still haven’t finished the first season of Horace and Pete, but not because it’s a bad show. In fact, I haven’t finished the first season of Horace and Pete because it’s too good, too effective, and too emotionally brutal. I’m practically afraid of the series and what writer/director/star Louis C.K. has in store for me. You don’t binge Horace and Pete – you survive it.
I have no idea how the initial ten episodes of Horace and Pete conclude (I’ll get there soon enough), but now C.K. is now talking about getting to work on a second season of his completely independent web series…but only if it can live up to his standards.
