Writer-director Christopher Guest has made a career out of doing his quirky, mockumentary comedies like BEST IN SHOW and FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION and now he’s bringing the same aesthetic to television with the new HBO series FAMILY TREE.

During the Winter TCA 2013 session for the National Geographic Channel’s forthcoming movie KILLING LINCOLN, writer and executive producer Erik Jendressen spoke about the differences between this TV Movie airing this February and starring Billy Campbell as Lincoln and the Steven Spielberg feature film LINCOLN starring Daniel Day Lewis. “Spielberg’s film really focuses on the 13th Amendment,” says Jendressen. “That’s the story of the victory of Abraham Lincoln.

When A&E announced they were going to do a PSYCHO prequel series called BATES MOTEL, it was questionable whether such an iconic character could be reinvented once again (anyone remember the 1998 Gus Van Sant shot-for-shot remake?) However, with the great new previews and an excellent pilot episode, the Carlton Cuse (LOST) executive produced series is as epic and cinematic as you can get with Vera Farmiga playing the domineering Norma Bates and Freddie Highmore playing her jittery high school son Norman. At today’s Winter 2013 Cable TCA’s, Cuse revealed more details about BATES MOTEL and what to expect. Most …Read On »

At today’s Winter 2013 TCA Cable Day, COUGAR TOWN executive producer and co-creator Bill Lawrence spoke about the transition of his ensemble comedy moving from ABC to TBS for Season 4. “I’ve been trying to kill this show for years,” says Lawrence with a laugh. “There’s now commercials for our show. It’s insane. I’ve been involved personally with a lot of shows that had weird life spans. I think unless you’re lucky enough to be a hit today, your goal in network and off network TV is to stay alive. We’ve done so because the show is good. Transition-wise, it …Read On »
