Empire of the Dead TV series

The Marvel Comics series Empire of the Dead, from George A. Romero and Alex Maleev, is about to become a TV series. But the show, isn’t coming from Marvel’s own TV development outfit. Rather, it is backed by Demarest, which is also behind a forthcoming TV adaptation of John le Carré’s The Night Manager, and also produced the film version of le Carré’s A Most Wanted Man and Kevin Smith’s Tusk.

Full Scream Queens Trailer

When the upfront presentation for the new TV shows coming to Fox this fall was unveiled, there was no new trailer for the horror comedy Scream Queens from Glee and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy. Instead, a teaser trailer with actual footage from the show arrived on its own, which means Fox really wants this one to stand out and hopes it’ll be something special. Unfortunately, the full trailer for the series has arrived, and this looks like it’s going to be murder, and not in the way you want from a horror comedy. Watch the full Scream Queens trailer after the jump. Read More »

Bill Murray Letterman

Any long-time viewer has their own personal favorite moment from David Letterman‘s 30-year career in late night TV, and quite a few of those memories probably involve Bill Murray. The actor was Letterman’s first guest in both incarnations of his show, and has sat down for many other interviews with the host.

Last night, for Letterman’s next-to-last episode of The Late Show, Murray jumped out of a cake before settling in for the interview while covered with cake and frosting which he smeared all over the chairs and Letterman himself. (Thus creating a proper bookend bit of vandalism to match his first appearance at the Ed Sullivan theater, when he spray-painted “Dave” on the front of Letterman’s desk.) Then they drank vodka, and lots of it.

The conversation featured a highlight reel culled from Murray’s many appearances on Dave’s shows, and some talk about the actor’s long career. Watch it all below. Read More »

Apple television

After the iPod, iPhone, iPad and iWatch, everyone was expecting o see Apple’s iTV. In his biography, Steve Jobs revealed the company was secretly working on a brand new Apple television set that would revolutionize how we watch TV. Tim Cook has since reiterated that idea, so every time the company announced a keynote, the question arose. “Will Apple reveal their TV set?” And while the rumors of the device’s existence have persisted, there hasn’t been more than a peep of anything official. Now we know why.

Turns out Apple was developing a television set, but abandoned those plans over a year ago because they couldn’t come up with anything revolutionary enough. Read more about the Apple Television set below. Read More »

Muppets TV Show 2015

Out of all the big TV news that came out of network upfronts, the official pick up of a new Muppets TV show was certainly among the top stories. The fact we’re going to get a primetime Muppets show with slightly more adult themes that explores the backstory of the characters is interesting; the show has the potential to hit a lot of perfect notes. The first trailer definitely showed that promise. Now, adding to the trailer, the official Disney blog posted 12 new photos from the show that reveal some more minor characters and fun situations we’ll see when the new Muppets TV show airs this fall.

David Lynch returns to Twin Peaks

All week I’ve been thinking about Twin Peaks. As many TV networks and companies revealed their upcoming projects during upfront presentations in New York, I wondered if Twin Peaks was going to quietly disappear. Since Showtime doesn’t take part in upfronts, it seemed like news wasn’t likely to hit soon, but now we know that Twin Peaks isn’t going anywhere. In fact, it is getting bigger.

Twin Peaks was revived with a bang by Showtime, which planned a nine-episode limited series to be co-written and directed by David Lynch. But six weeks ago Lynch quit the show via Twitter, surprising everyone involved. Now he has announced that he’s back. Even more surprising: the show is now longer than nine episodes, and Lynch will direct it all.  Read More »
