‘Expendables’ TV Series in the Works at Fox

The Expendables 3

The Expendables franchise is based on a pretty simple formula: dump a bunch of action heroes into one picture, and watch the box office dollars roll in. It’s worked out pretty well so far for the series, which has collectively grossed $785 million worldwide. So why should movie stars get to have all the fun?

Fox is developing The Expendables, an action-drama event series which will bring together some of TV’s best loved ass-kickers for a brand new adventure. Get all the details on The Expendables TV series after the jump.  Read More »

Meagan Good in Deception

Fox’s Minority Report TV pilot has been busy over the past week, picking up three Precogs and a non-Precog lead. Laura Regan and Stark Sands (the latter in a dual role) will play the three clairvoyants, while Meagan Good plays a regular old human who gets involved with them.

The trio join Li Jun Li, who plays a CSI technician, and Daniel London, who reprises the role of Wally the Caretaker from the 2002 movie. More on the Minority Report casting after the jump.  Read More »

Lucifer

Yet another part of the DC universe is coming to the small screen. Fox has officially given a pilot order to Lucifer, based on the DC Comics character created by Neil Gaiman. Len Wiseman is directing and will produce with Jerry Bruckheimer.

Worth noting is that the premise of the series has been tweaked since the last time we reported on this project. The Devil will now work in law enforcement. Which might be a commentary on the current state of American law enforcement, but is more likely just a concession to the enduring popularity of crime dramas. Get all the details on the Lucifer pilot after the jump.  Read More »

Fox’s Gotham is practically drowning in future supervillains, so it’s nice to hear there’s a future superhero on the way. Though he probably won’t be of much help to Jim Gordon and Bruce Wayne right now, seeing as he hasn’t even been born yet.

Showrunner Bruce Heller revealed that a “prenatal Robin” storyline is in the works for Gotham. Also coming in a future episode is the return of the pint-sized Poison Ivy — though her BFF Harley Quinn will be sitting this season out. Hit the jump for more on the planned Robin Gotham plot.

The Planet Express crew is making a special delivery to your TV this weekend. No, Futurama hasn’t been revived again — Bender, Fry, and the gang are setting a course for Springfield in the next episode of The Simpsons, in hopes of preventing a disastrous future event.
