FX’s new series THE STRAIN, Sundays at 10 PM, brings horror back to the vampire mythology. Forget the charmers of TRUE BLOOD, BEING HUMAN, et al, or even Bela Lugosi – these things are hideous, terrifying and breeding like Ebola virus. Worse, they’re in New York City. Center for Disease Control researchers Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) want to combat the plague, but so far aren’t sure how to do so; pawn shop owner Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley), who’s had experience with the creatures before, and city exterminator Vasily Fet (Kevin Durand) may have some ideas. …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: FARGO composer Jeff Russo makes his own musical hit for FX’s reinvention

FARGO soundtrack | ©2014 Sony Music

With the winning likes of such improbable fim-to-tv adaptations as HANNIBAL, the boob tube and its scoring seem to have gotten significantly smarter and edgier than it’s been in the last several decades – or at the very least since the 16 years that FARGO first hit movie theaters. This North Dakota-set film noir represented the Coen Brothers at the height of their gleefully twisted irony, as a horrifically violent kidnapping-gone-wrong played out amidst cheerful salt of the Midwestern earth types. And only a humble (and very pregnant) female sheriff has the horse sense to figure out that this escalating …Read On »
