Depending on how you look at it, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is either a miniseries about Kiefer Sutherland’s redoubtable ex-counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer, or simply Season 9 of 24, resuming after a four-year break in a twelve-hour frame, airing on Fox Mondays at 9 PM. Howard Gordon, executive producer of 24 for much of its run, is back on 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY. Gordon also has three other series in production – the multi-award-winning HOMELAND, coming back for its fourth season in the fall, FX’s new TYRANT and TNT’s LEGEND. This raises the question of whether Gordon is secretly affiliated […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: The scoop on 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY from executive producer Howard Gordon

24 - SEASON 8 - THE COMPLETE FINAL SEASON DVD | ©2010 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

Producer/writer Howard Gordon is a very busy man, what with last year’s truckload of Emmys for the first season of Showtime’s HOMELAND, an even bigger slate of nominations for the second season of HOMELAND, the series TYRANT in development at FX and LEGENDS, an espionage series starring Sean Bean, at TNT. This last is likely why Gordon is at TNT’s twenty-fifth anniversary party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. We talked with Gordon about all his projects (see our upcoming separate interview), but while we’re at it, we got an update on next year’s anticipated mini-season of 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY […]Read On »

In third season, Brennan’s lab assistant Zack Addy (Eric Milligan) was committed to a mental institution. Since then, Brennan has had a rotating roster of lab assistants, or “squinterns” (Booth calls the lab people squints and they serve as Brennan’s interns, hence “squinterns”). Eugene Byrd’s character Dr. Clark Edison is one of the primary squinterns.Clark started out […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Tim Kring on the DAYBREAK web series

DAYBREAK poster | ©2012 AT&T

DAYBREAK begins with a wild vehicle chase – not too surprising, as it’s directed by 24 veteran Jon Cassar – then flashes back to show us how Ben (Ryan Eggold), living in a mobile home park after turning his back on conventional success, gets entangled in a web that involves his late father, a twelve-sided dodecahedron and a secret society. The far-reaching themes are a hallmark of DAYBREAK’s co-creator/executive producer Tim Kring (TOUCH, HEROES). What is most unusual about DAYBREAK, with its high production values and pedigree on both sides of the camera – besides Eggold (ENTOURAGE, 90210), stars include […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Ryan McPartlin on DAYBREAK, the end of CHUCK and CSI: MIAMI

Captain Awesome is back – and a badass. Ryan McPartlin, who endeared himself to five seasons of CHUCK viewers as the title character’s brother-in-law Devon, aka Captain Awesome, has a new gig. However, neither the role itself nor the venue for the show is typical. DAYBREAK, produced by Tim Kring of HEROES and TOUCH and directed by 24 veteran Jon Cassar, looks exactly like a pilot episode of an action mystery TV series, but instead of airing on network or cable television, it is running – one ten-minute episode every Thursday night at Daybreak2012.com. The Web series is sponsored by […]Read On »

In TERRA NOVA the Fox television series, which has its two-hour season finale tonight at 8 PM, a group of colonists have set up a colony 85 million years in the past to save their own lives – despite the dangers from dinosaurs and the like – and perhaps save the future. On TERRA NOVA the production, the producers have set up a team in Australia to shoot the show, which is several thousand miles and multiple time zones away from the series’ Hollywood home base. Bridging the gap between these is producing director Jon Cassar, who spent many years […]Read On »

TV Review: TERRA NOVA – Season 1 – “The Runaway”

Cast: Jason O’Mara, Christine Adams, Byron Brockmann, Shelly Conn, Stephan Lang, Simone Kessell, Landon Liborion, Allison Miller Director: Jon Cassar Writers: Barbara Marshall Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8pm Original Telecast: Oct. 17, 201 So, hey, when are we getting some dinosaurs in your dinosaur TV show? TERRA NOVA was billed as a JURASSIC PARK meets LOST with a dash of AVATAR, yet for the most part this show has been dinosaur-free instead focusing on lame storylines involving the Shannon family, troubles teens have with girls (and boys), rebellious moonshine making other teens and a whole host of plotlines […]Read On »

TV Review: TERRA NOVA – Season 1 – “Instinct”

Cast: Jason O’Mara, Christine Adams, Byron Brockmann, Shelly Conn, Stephan Lang, Simone Kessell, Landon Liborion, Allison Miller Director: Jon Cassar Writers: Rene Echevarria, Brannon Braga Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8pm Original Telecast: Oct. 23, 2011 So I missed last week that TERRA NOVA doesn’t necessarily take place on our Earth’s past. It actually is a similar past, but in a somewhat alternate reality of our own. That’s why the dinosaurs are very similar, but different as well as the other plant and animal life. That’s especially funny given the opening animation for the show depicts all of Earth’s […]Read On »
