BONES is now in its twelve-episode twelfth and final season Tuesday nights on Fox Network.

Michael Kenneth Williams has a wide-ranging career that encompasses everything from his Jazz Age gangster Chalky White in BOARDWALK EMPIRE to a heroic resistance fighter in THE PURGE: ANARCHY to the husband of Queen Latifah’s Bessie Smith in BESSIE, a performance that earned Williams an Emmy nomination. However, right now Williams is in the unusual position of being on television almost simultaneously as two very different gay black Viet Nam veterans. In ABC’s LGBTQ civil rights miniseries WHEN WE RISE, running February 7 through March 3, the actor from Brooklyn plays real-life gay rights activist Ken Jones. In Season 2 […]Read On »

In AMC’s HUMANS, now in its second season on Monday nights, things are changing for both the individual characters and the world at large. At a time when humanity has embraced Synthetics, human-appearing but computerized androids, as cheap labor and household help, some Synthetics have been designed as fully conscious, emotional beings. One of these, Niska (Emily Berrington), had gotten hold of the code that can make any Synth conscious at the end of Season 1, and in Season 2, she’s started to use it. Niska also shows up on the doorstep of the Hawkins family. Niska and her fellow […]Read On »

Gallner’s Hasil (pronounced “Hassle”) is a young mountain man whose curious nature brings him down […]Read On »

24: LEGACY: EP Howard Gordon talks returning to the franchise – interview

Corey Hawkins stars in 24: LEGACY | © 2017 Guy D'Alema/FOX

Fox Network’s new Monday-night thriller 24: LEGACY is in some respects its own show. Corey Hawkins stars as military veteran Eric Carter, who begins working with the Counter-Terrorism Unit (CTU) over the course of one intense day, rather than starting out as a seasoned CTU agent like Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer. But this is a legacy of the original 24, with some returning characters – like Carlos Bernard’s Tony Almeida – the same ticking-clock time frame, and a lot of the behind the scenes creative team once again in the driver’s seat. Among the returnees is executive producer Howard Gordon, […]Read On »
