COSMOS, the nonfiction series devoted to science and space exploration, originally premiered in 1980.

Now National Geographic brings back the multi-Emmy-winning COSMOS as part of its STORYTELLING UNLEASHED programming as COSMOS: POSSIBLE WORLDS, airing Monday nights.

Shane West is sneezing, but he explains he hasn’t picked up the cold that’s affected a lot of people in the vicinity. “Oh, no. I have a beard that’s been driving me crazy. I haven’t had a beard like this ever, I think, in my life. And it’s fine, it’s great for the role, but I’m consistently all of a sudden sneezing and my nose is scratchy always. It’s a weird thing, but it’s true.” So perhaps he’s developed an allergy to his own facial hair? West laughs and says it’s possible. “Yes. I’m allergic to everything now, even though […]Read On »

SALEM, WGN America’s first scripted dramatic series, airing Sundays at 10 PM, deals with the suspicions of witchcraft in that colony during the late seventeenth century. In series creators Adam Simon and Brannon Braga’s version of events, witches are real, very scary – and have a gift for framing other people for their sometimes bloody deeds. Some of the characters are invented, but some, like Ashley Madekwe’s Tituba, are people documented in history. Tituba was a slave who was tried for witchcraft, though there are conflicting opinions on her ethnicity and nationality. In Arthur Miller’s play THE CRUCIBLE, Tituba unwittingly […]Read On »

There’s been a lot written about the new ambitious Fox science-fiction series TERRA NOVA (which will air a two-hour premiere on May 23 and follow with the full series in the fall), but for the first time, the executive producers and cast were able to get together and chat in more detail. At today’s Winter TCA session for Fox, executive producer Brannon Braga says the reason for the two-hour premiere was due to “too much story.” “We struggled for a long time how to fit it all in into 60 pages,” says Braga. “There was a meeting with the network […]Read On »
