If you’re a fan of the FOX animated series Bob’s Burgers, then you probably already know that this weekend marks its milestone 100th episode. If you’re not a fan of Bob’s Burgers, then you should probably watch it on Netflix or Hulu and join in the hilarity.
In case you didn’t know, just last month the cast of Bob’s Burgers got together for some recent live shows in Los Angeles that featured H. Jon Benjamin (Bob), John Roberts (Linda), Dan Mintz (Tina), Eugene Mirman (Gene), and Kristen Schaal (Louise) all doing stand-up, table reads and more in front of a live audience. Before the show began, a short film called Bob’s Burgers Live!: The Movie revealed how the cast was rounded up for the event, and it was a little more complicated and dramatic than you might anticipate.

This year marks the 50th birthday of the first episode of the first Star Trek TV series, which would go on to launch an entire franchise spanning decades and worlds and several different types of media. Next year, the franchise returns to its small-screen roots (albeit on an on-demand subscription service instead of on regular old broadcast television). It’s missing that milestone anniversary by a matter of months, but something this exciting is probably worth the wait.
In the meantime, CBS isn’t wasting any time promoting its big, splashy new project. They’ve unveiled the very first Star Trek teaser, which isn’t much more than a glorified title treatment but is worth a look all the same, if only because it’s an exciting reminder that, yes, Star Trek will be returning to television in the not-too-distant future.

The upfronts keep on coming this week, and yesterday brought the unveiling of the new series coming to ABC for the 2016-2017 television season. Since ABC canceled a bunch of shows, including Agent Carter and Marvel’s Most Wanted, we’re interested to see what the network will be trying out this fall to find a new audience.
The new line-up of dramas at ABC includes the return of Agent Carter‘s Hayley Atwell to television in Conviction, Kiefer Sutherland becoming the president in Designated Survivor, and H.G. Wells chasing Jack the Ripper through modern day New York City in Time After Time. On the comedy side, we have some new shows featuring Jenna Elfman, Minnie Driver and Katy Mixon. We recently previewed a few short teasers for some of ABC’s new offerings, but today we have longer, meatier trailers.

Even though the television series Agents of SHIELD takes place in the Marvel cinematic universe, there has still be a significant disconnect between the Marvel Studios show on ABC and their feature films. The biggest piece of evidence pointing to a lack of cooperation between the two Marvel entities is the fact that Agents of SHIELD probably won’t cross over with the Inhumans movie (which has been pulled from Marvel’s schedule, but will still get made eventually), even though they share an entire species of superpowered characters from Marvel Comics. And it sounds like one of Marvel’s TV stars is a bit annoyed by that.

We’re less than a week away from the series premiere of AMC’s Preacher and I couldn’t be more intrigued to see what Sam Catlin, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg have done with Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s twisted and hilarious comic series. By all accounts (the pilot was screened to a warm response at SXSW), the television adaptation uses the basic signposts of the acclaimed Vertigo comic while very much doing its own thing and that’s perfectly fine. I love Preacher to death, but it’s the kind of thing that needs to be massaged into shape for a television series.
AMC has released the opening scene from the first episode and it’s a doozy, somehow managing to sum up a great deal of what this series is all about in 240 seconds. There’s extreme violence, pitch-black comedy, a not-so-romantic look at Texas life, and the suggestion of a genuinely cosmic scale.

Phil Lord & Chris Miller have effectively worked their magic on the big screen with Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street (and its equally as good sequel) and The LEGO Movie. But on the small screen, they’ve also delivered great comedy with Clone High and Last Man on Earth. Now they’re bringing even more laughs to TV with two new series.
Son of Zorn and Making History couldn’t be more different, but both have Lord & Miller’s trademark comedy and promise of something great. Watch the Making History and Son of Zorn trailer after the jump. Read More »
Fox is looking to the past for its 2017 slate, reviving two of the shows that helped shape the network’s identity during the early and mid-’00s. And yet, both are coming back in very different forms. In one corner, you have Prison Break, returning as a special event series that will act as a sequel to the series finale and feature characters fans already know and love. In the other, you have 24: Legacy, which borrows its parent show’s basic format while bringing an entirely new cast into the fray.

Movie studios aren’t the only ones obsessed with remaking anything and everything. Television networks have jumped on board the lack-of-creativity train and have been working on recycling plenty of movies for the small screen. FOX has no less than three different remakes coming for the upcoming 2016-2017 season and they come in the form of TV shows for Lethal Weapon and The Exorcist as well as a TV movie version of the cult classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Back in 2007, Mark Wahlberg starred in the feature film Shooter, an action thriller based on the book Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter. The story followed an expert marksman who is called back into action in order to foil a plot to kill the President of the United States of America. But he ends up being framed for the crime instead and ends up on the run. Now Ryan Phillippe is in the lead of a TV series at USA that is bringing the same story to the small screen, and the first trailer has just arrived.
