GRACEPOINT, the ten-episode miniseries airing in weekly installments on Fox beginning Thursday, October 2, is based on the eight-part British miniseries BROADCHURCH. In both, a young boy is found murdered in a small coastal town and in both, an outside police detective is brought in to supervise the case. He works with a local female police detective whose young son was the victim’s best friend. One more similarity between the two versions – in both, David Tennant plays the new-to-town detective (called Alec Hardy in BROADCHURCH and Emmett Carver in GRACEPOINT). Dan Futterman and his wife and frequent writing partner […]Read On »

The premise of ABC’s new half-hour comedy SELFIE, premiering Tuesday September 30 at 8 PM, may sound a little familiar to anyone familiar with the musical MY FAIR LADY and/or its play progenitor PYGMALION, though there’s a contemporary twist. Eliza (Karen Gillan, previously of DOCTOR WHO) still has Henry (John Cho) helping her remake her image. However, rather than a Cockney flower seller, this Eliza is addicted to social media, so much so that she lacks skills to interact with actual human beings. Henry tries to help Eliza become someone who can make real friends, and Eliza tries to help […]Read On »

Series creator Andrew W. Marlowe and his fellow executive producer, show runner David Amann, are at a party thrown by ABC for its show runners and the Television Critics Association, where they […]Read On »

When MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, based in the Marvel comics universe, debuted on ABC last year, we followed a team of agents led by Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) on a series of adventures. Then the feature film CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER was released on April 4, 2014. The S.H.I.E.L.D. agency was attacked from within by the group Hydra, whose operatives turned out to have been inside S.H.I.E.L.D. since its inception in World War II. In the very next episode of AGENTS OF SHIELD, our heroes had to deal with the […]Read On »

GOTHAM logo | ©2014 Fox

Fox’s GOTHAM, premiering Monday, September 22 at 8 PM, depicts Bruce Wayne as a teen orphan played by David Mazouz, before he dons Batman’s cowl. This might draw comparisons to SMALLVILLE, which dramatized the early life of Superman, another DC Comics hero, but GOTHAM has a much more adult feel. Detective Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) – who BATMAN fans know will one day become Gotham City’s police commissioner – is at the center of the action, surrounded by people who give indications that they will someday become iconic figures in this universe, including Catwoman, the Penguin and the Riddler. Thanks […]Read On »
