The People vs. OJ Simpson
The much anticipated 4th season of American Horror Story will premiere on FX tomorrow night but today we learn that AHS creator Ryan Murphy has an entirely new story to tell. It was announced today that Murphy will produce a new TV series for FX titled American Crime Story. Instead of horror stories, American Crime Story will focus on real life crime cases … and the first season will focus on the trial of OJ Simpson. Read on to learn more. More »
Back in August we got to see the first teaser video for the upcoming Breaking Bad prequel spin-off series Better Call Saul that will debut on AMC next February. Today we get to see a new promo video for BCS that comes in the form of a music video for a song appropriately titled Better Call Saul: The Song. I am counting the seconds until this prequel series premieres on AMC and I’m hopeful we’ll get more promo gems like this for the show in the meantime. Wee!
Trying to get inside David Fincher's head
This past weekend may have been the first one in 50 years where there were NO Saturday Morning Cartoons on any of the major network channels but it was also a weekend where Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor appeared on a morning TV talk show. Reznor appeared on CBS This Morning to discuss the writing process for the score of Gone Girl and as you can see above, he can handle himself very well on bright, sunny morning TV just as well as he can handle himself on stage in front of a mass of sweaty, moshing music fans. It’s a really interesting interview, I think you will enjoy it.
OMG! Remember back in January when it seemed like David Lynch was teasing a reboot of the classic ’90s drama series Twin Peaks and then he CRUSHED our hopes and dreams by denying that there would be any Twin Peaks reboot? Well today we learn that
the bastard Lynch and Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost have officially announced that a NEW Twin Peaks limited series is coming to Showtime!!! A few days ago, both David Lynch and Mark Frost hinted at the return of Twin Peaks on Twitter … but after what happened in January, I totally figured they were just pulling our chain again. Now that we know FOR SURE that Twin Peaks is coming back to TV with new episodes, I think it is completely appropriate to FREAK THE EFF OUT!!!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!! More »
Sink back into the ocean/Sink back into the ocean
It’s always a good day when Fiona Apple drops some new music, and I’ve been curious about this new Showtime series, The Affair. A few months back I saw the first trailer, but it’s strange how Fiona Apple‘s involvement is now making me even more interested. She’s singing the main title sequence song, Container, and it gives you a sense of the beautiful, haunting quality that the show may also possess. Click inside for more!

The Final Season
Back in August we got to see the first teaser for the forthcoming third and final season of The Newsroom on HBO and today we get to check out the season’s first full trailer. As you can see above, we get to check out the first footage from The Newsroom which will tackle, among other things, the Boston Marathon Bombing that took place last year. Even tho I’m totally bummed that the coming season will be the last, I am very much looking forward to seeing how this short-running series will end.

The Rock to star?!
Yesterday we learned that the mobile phone video game Angry Birds is being adapted into a feature-length film and today we learn that another well-known property is also getting the film treatment. The ’90s TV series Baywatch is reportedly being adapted into a feature film and it sounds like Dwayne The Rock Johnson will star as the lead. David Hasselhoff, as you may know, was the lead star of the Baywatch TV series so it sounds like producers are going for a different feel for the movie version. Read on for more deets about this Baywatch movie plan. More »

"Wounded people attract wounded people"
Back in July we learned that actor Walton Goggins would be reprising his role as trans character Venus Van Dam in the final season of Sons of Anarchy and a week ago, we got our first look at Venus on the show this season. Last night, she made her return to SOA and what a return it was. Without getting into to many specifics about last night’s ep so as not to spoil anything for those of you who have yet to watch the episode, I will only point out that SOA creator Kurt Sutter informed us that Venus would be a part of the “big romance” this season. Last night, we saw her romance blossom on screen. Click below to read excerpts from a TV Guide interview that Goggins gave about last night’s episode of Sons of Anarchy and learn more. Be warned, the information below will be spoilery for those of you who are not caught up with the latest episode. More »
"The Friend Contract is DEAD!"
Earlier today we learned of the POSSIBILITY that Bethenny Frankel may return for the upcoming new season of The Real Housewives of NYC (which Bethenny has neither confirmed nor denied) and right now, we get to check in with the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The 7th season of RHOA will premiere on Bravo on November 9 and as you can see in the just-released first trailer above, the new season is full of D-R-A-M-A. There are new Housewives this season (Demetria McKinney and Claudia Jordan) who will, of course, rile up the other castmembers. Porsha Williams has been demoted from a full castmember to just a recurring castmember (much like the Countess LuAnn de Lesseps was demoted on RHONY) and Phaedra was forced to call the cops on her estranged husband Apollo. Yes, the new season looks goooooood, y’all. Get your first look at the new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta above and determine if the new season looks interesting to you.
