‘Once Upon A Time’ Spinoff Finds Its Alice In ‘Wonderland’


Posted at April 2, 2013 by

ABC has been in a bit a slump with “breakout hits” these last few years. One of the solid bright spots has always been the sophomore series Once Upon A Time on Sunday nights. The series travels between Storybrooke, Maine and its fairytale land, The Enchanted Forest, and on a wide scope of characters. Some go on for episodes without a major episode focusing on them and as such, are introducing Once Upon A Time: Wonderland, a miniseries that has cast their leads.

Damon Wayans Jr. & Jake Johnson ‘Let’s Be Cops’ Greenlighted At Fox

One of the splendid things about TV actors is that their series usually break from production around the same time. It’s why you see a lot of TV comedy actors doing a cameo or two in some big-budget films or even star in one of their own. Damon Wayans Jr. (Happy Endings) and Jake Johnson (New Girl) have gotten the greenlight from Fox for a buddy cop comedy Let’s Be Cops.

Joss Whedon Chooses Characters In ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ TV Series


Posted at October 3, 2012 by

Let’s just get this obvious out of the way: Joss Whedon is “The Boss”. There, I said it. I revel in anything that comes from the creator/director/writer and this S.H.I.E.L.D. adaptation into an ABC TV series (the network is a sister company to Disney who owns the Marvel film division behind The Avengers). If this isn’t must-watch TV, I don’t know what is and by Whedon standards, he’s chosen his core crew of characters that will be featured on the show when it goes to pilot (and hopefully series afterwards).

Dream Pairings: HBO & Guillermo del Toro Together With ‘Nutshell Studies’


Posted at September 19, 2012 by
