I love how modern television is giving us season-long mini-series, which allow for a richer story than allowed in the time restraints of the big screen, but also create full story arcs that don’t suffer from the seasonal strain of normal television. One of the latest in this genre is Wayward Pines, the M. Night Shyamalan-produced series based on the Wayward Pines novels by Blake Crouch.
The ten-episode limited series ran on Fox from May 14th to July 23rd 2015. But while the series has officially come to an end, M.

Two high-profile “P” shows are about to go to pilot. The first is called Playboy and, much like Mad Men, it’s set in the 1960s. Instead of Madison Avenue, though, the show will be set at a Playboy Club in Chicago. Ordered by NBC, Playboy will be written by Chad Hodge (Tru Calling) and uses the legendary club as a way to explore blossoming sexuality in America during the Sixties.
The second show, called Pulp, is being championed by J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot. Like most things Abrams is involved with, not much is known about it yet except that it’s an hour-long drama with a “heightened sense of reality” like in Pulp Fiction. It’s currently being shopped to networks.
