This interview could not be run until after the third episode of SundanceTV’s six-part miniseries LIAR had aired on Wednesday, October 11. This is because, in the first two episodes of LIAR, we cannot tell whether the title applies to high school teacher Laura Nielson, played by Joanne Froggatt, or surgeon Andrew Earlham, played by Ioan Gruffudd. Actually, on some level, it applies to both of them, and their friends and family as well – everyone in LIAR has secrets – but there is a central issue in the drama created by Harry Williams & Jack Williams (who also created […]Read On »

HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER tells the story of a hot shot attorney that takes on the worst criminals' defense | © 2014 ABC

While ABC continues to be one of the biggest networks on television in overall ratings, the coveted 18-49 demographic seems to be moving away from them. This isn’t much of a surprise because the entire demographic is moving away from watching network television to the Internet, Netflix and cable. Still, the network has amassed a lovely string of programming that is followed by many, adored by more and is going strong with six new projects in the new fall season. Now, going into the 2014-2015 season, what new shows do we have to look forward to and what are their […]Read On »

A strange coincidence has landed Judd Hirsch at Syfy Channel’s Beverly Hilton poolside screening of SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE for the benefit of the Television Critics Association press tour. The sequel to last summer’s surprise Syfy hit is being projected onto a gigantic blank wall next to the pool prior to its Syfy Channel premiere on Wednesday, July 30. The atmosphere is deliberately drive-in theatre, with couches decorated to look like car seats and popcorn and soda stations (as well as regular drive-in dinner fare). Hirsch was nominated for an Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in ORDINARY PEOPLE, […]Read On »

A) It’s not very good. B) As much as it’s commendable that Gellar wants to do something that’s not BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, picking a project where she’s not allowed to kick-ass and take names is incredibly hard to get used to.
