Designated Survivor Renewed

Last week brought dozens of cancellations by TV networks clearing the path for new shows hitting the air for the new 2018-2019 television season. Brooklyn Nine-Nine was lucky enough to be saved with a last minute renewal, and now one more has been given a new lease on life after being canceled.

Designated Survivor is an ABC drama following Kiefer Sutherland as Tom Kirkman, a lower-level cabinet member in the United States government who is suddenly appointed President of the United States after a catastrophic attack on the US Capitol during the State of the Union. With his new responsibilities, he had to keep the country and his own family from falling apart, while navigating the highly-volatile political arena and while leading the search to find who is responsible for the attack.

The series lasted just two seasons before being canceled by ABC last week, but now production company eOne is in talks with Netflix about the political thriller getting picked up for another season. However, it’s not a done deal yet. Read More »

‘Flatliners’ Legacy Cameo Revealed In New TV Spot

Flatliners cameo

Joel Schumacher’s 1990 sci-fi horror movie Flatliners is undoubtedly a goofy film, but it’s also a stylishly directed, visually striking piece of work from a filmmaker that’s often unfairly derided for his later superhero work (hey, Batman Forever is pretty good!). It also has a killer cast that included then-up-and-comers like Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin, and Oliver Platt, and now we know that one of those actors will also appear in the upcoming remake/sequel, too. And based on that selection of names, the culprit may not be who you think.

Join me below to watch a new TV spot that gives away the Flatliners cameo, and while you’re there, stick around for a full trailer for the new version.

Chloe Could Return For ’24: Legacy’

Chloe in 24 Legacy - Mary Lynn Rajskub

The folks behind 24: Legacy have made one thing clear about the series: it’s not a reboot, it’s an expansion. The consensus after 24: Live Another Day was that Jack Bauer’s story was, at least for now, over, and it was time to move on and find a new hero. That new hero is Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins), an ex-Army Ranger whose past comes back to haunt him. We did hear it was a possibility to see more of Jack Bauer, although the actor wasn’t confident about that, but will fans ever see Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) return? There’s a good chance they might, according to 24: Legacy executive producer Evan Katz.

Below, read what Katz had to say about having Chloe in 24 Legacy.

Flatliners Sequel

Just a few weeks ago, the developing Flatliners remake gained an interesting name with Kiefer Sutherland joining the cast. What’s interesting about the addition of Sutherland to the cast is that he starred in the original 1990 cult favorite thriller, and his involvement in the new take on the story opened up the possibility of this being more of a sequel instead of a true remake. Now we seem to have confirmation of as much from Kiefer Sutherland himself. Find out what the actor had to say about the Flatliners sequel after the jump. Read More »

Kiefer Sutherland 24 Legacy

In January of next year, the midseason brings the debut of 24: Legacy, the series reboot of FOX’s action adventure series that once starred Kiefer Sutherland as Counter Terrorist Unit agent Jack Bauer. The original iteration of the series was revealed to be over in 2010 with eyes set on a feature film adaptation, though that never came to fruition. But three years later, Jack Bauer returned to TV for the event series revival 24: Live Another Day, which turned out to be his last outing as the rogue hero. Or was it?

While speaking at the ATX TV Festival in Austin, TX, executive producer Howard Gordon said that he thinks Jack Bauer still has some life in him, and there’s a chance he could even appear at some point in 24: Legacy. Find out more about a possible Kiefer Sutherland 24 Legacy appearance below. Read More »

ABC 2016-2017 TV show trailers

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.

ZOOLANDER 2

It can be tempting to react to the never-ending torrent of remakes, reboots, sequels, and spinoffs with a knee-jerk groan. Truthfully, though, that’s not always fair. Creed was a spinoff-reboot-sequel combo that restored the long-running Rocky series to its former glory. Ditto The Force Awakens for Star Wars. On the TV side, Ash vs. Evil Dead and Fargo have both managed to recapture the spirit of their respective originals, while also bringing something new to the table.

But if those titles are evidence that Hollywood’s obsession with existing IP can yield excellent results, Zoolander 2 represents the worst-case scenario. Not because Zoolander 2 is the worst movie ever made — it isn’t — but because it’s what we fear every time one of these projects gets announced: a joyless cash-grab more interested in rehashing old ideas than building on them.  Read More »
