Twin Peaks painting Scott C header

It’s hard to believe, but more than 25 years after David Lynch and Mark Frost’s surreal, influential TV series Twin Peaks went off the air, we’re about to head back to the town that started it all with a batch of brand new episodes on Showtime later this month. But before we do that, artist Scott C. is here to celebrate the original episodes of the show with a new art print called “In the Warmth of the Great Northern,” which features nearly every major character we’ve seen thus far gathered in the lobby of the show’s famous hotel.

inhumans tv show synopsis

Disney is over the moon about the upcoming Inhumans television show, with Mark Endemano, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Media Distribution, raving that the Marvel superhero show is “unlike anything you’ve ever seen before on television.”

But the moon won’t play as prominent a part for the Inhumans Royal Family, who are trading in their moon-based city of Attilan for the beaches of Hawaii, in a newly released synopsis of the ABC show.

Star Wars ABC show

Today was the first ever Television Critics Association executive session for new ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey. She replaces Paul Lee, who has met with TCA twice a year since 2010. ABC is a Disney company, and the network has aired shows from Disney-owned creative brands like Marvel and the Muppets. Asked if she would like to add a Star Wars TV series to her network, Dungey confirmed the network is in active conversations with Lucasfilm.  Read More »

By now you’ve surely heard that ABC has decided not to move forward with Marvel’s Most Wanted, and that it’s decided it doesn’t want more Agent Carter or The Muppets either. So what does the network want? If they’re not going to give us more of Hayley Atwell kicking ass and taking names Peggy Carter, what do they plan to serve us next season instead?

Well, for starters, Hayley Atwell kicking ass and taking names as a different Carter — Carter Morrison, the protagonist of a new legal drama called Conviction. There’s also Downward Dog, starring Fargo‘s Allison Tolman, and Still Star-Crossed, a Romeo and Juliet sequel for all you ShondaLand faithful out there. See brand-new promos for all of those, plus Imaginary MaryNotoriousSpeechless, and Time After TimeRead More »

Muppets TV show posters

Not long after the the video presentation that landed The Muppets a new show on ABC surfaced online after a debut at Comic-Con, we have a batch of new posters for the “more adult” TV comedy series that you’ll likely start seeing around major cities very soon.

Featuring Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and Gonzo, each of the character posters have a clever little tagline, with Kermit’s taking the cake as the boldest and funniest tagline to promote a Muppets production I’ve ever heard.

The Muppets pitch video

In case you hadn’t heard, The Muppets are coming back to television this fall with a brand new series on ABC. Taking a cue from shows like The Office and Parks and Recreation, the series will be a mockumentary style show following the Muppets as they create a new series for ABC. Yeah, it’s pretty meta, just like all the rest of their productions.

The Muppets recently put on a hilarious panel at Comic-Con in San Diego, complete with Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and more. (You can watch it all right here.) One thing that can’t be seen in the panel video is the 10-minute pitch video that was shown to ABC in order to land the series deal. But thankfully, the television studio has released the pitch video for us all to see, and it’s fantastic.

Netflix series Montauk

Since it’s the weekend, you’re likely spending at least some of the time watching your favorite show or a new movie on Netflix. There’s no doubt that the streaming entertainment service has become a major player and influence in how we consume movies and television, and now we have word that it will become more popular than network television in the next year.

A new analysis from FBR Capital Markets, a Wall Street analyst firm, has surfaced showing that if Netflix were a Nielsen-rated TV network, their 24-hour audience numbers would be greater than that of all the major broadcast networks by 2016.
