During National Geographic’s portion of the Television Critics Association press tour, Rees sits down to delve into GOING DEEP. AX: How did you get into the idea of studying the origins of everything? DAVID REES: I had an artisanal pencil-sharpening business and I got a book deal to write …Read On »

In MTV’s new Tuesday night drama FINDING CARTER, the Wilson family has undergone two huge jolts. One was twelve years ago, when then-three-year-old daughter Lyndon was kidnapped. The other is in the present, when Lyndon, who has reached the age of fifteen in the identity of Carter Stevens (Kathryn Prescott), is returned to her actual parents, sister and brother. Since Carter has grown up believing the woman who raised her was her real mother, it’s quite a shock to her – and having her back is a jolt to her biological kin as well. Alexis Denisof, who plays Carter/Lyndon’s father …Read On »

MATADOR, the second new scripted series (the first was FROM DUSK TILL DAWN, which had its first season earlier this year) on Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey network, premieres Tuesday, July 13. Despite its title, the action/adventure/spy series, created by Jay Beattie, Dan Dworkin, Andrew Orci & Roberto Orci, has nothing to do with bullfighting. Instead, “Matador” is the nickname given to new L.A. Riot soccer player Tony Bravo (Gabriel Luna) due to a particular action he takes during his tryout for the team. Nobody except his handlers know that Tony is really a D.E.A. agent who’s been recruited by the …Read On »

Interview: SNOWPIERCER composer MARCO BELTRAMI is on the right sound-track

SNOWPIERCER | ©2014 The Weinstein Company

Among the genre-centric composers who’ve carried on the torch from Jerry Goldsmith, few stand out for blazingly inventive sci-fi and horror scores like the maestro’s USC protégé Marco Beltrami. Just as his mentor used his memorable thematic talents for orchestrally, and electronically conveying psychopaths, aliens and futuristic adventure, Beltrami has jumped on a similarly imaginative and prolific bandwagon. Since the psychopathic score for the smash 1996 hit SCREAM stabbed Beltrami into the Hollywood map, the composer has used every trick from chilling melodies to thunderous percussion and angelic choruses to embody the fantastical and fearful, music capable of rapturously symphonic …Read On »
