Tim Minear served as consulting producer on Season One of DOLLHOUSE and executive producer, with creator Joss Whedon, on Season Two of the short-lived Fox series. DOLLHOUSE, which starred Eliza Dushku as the eventually self-aware Echo, concerned a secret business wherein human “dolls” had their original personalities wiped, to be replaced by whatever sort of persona (spy, lover, mother) high-paying clients wanted for short-term engagements. Minear wrote and directed the episodes “Getting Closer” and “Omega,” and scripted “Belle Chose” and “True Believer.” In Part Two of our exclusive interview, he talks about what might have happened had DOLLHOUSE had a […]Read On »

TERRIERS was a series that concluded its thirteen-episode run a few weeks ago on FX. The series chronicled the adventures of unorthodox private eyes Hank Dolworth, played by Donal Logue, and Britt Pollack, played by Michael Raymond-James, who stumble upon a clandestine land deal that will be bad for their beloved San Diego. Like a lot of shows that have low ratings, TERRIERS did not survive to its second season. Unlike practically any other canceled show in memory, TERRIERS had the network president, John Landgraf, explain to both the press and the series creative team exactly what went into the […]Read On »

JERSEY SHORE | ©2010 MTV

I don’t really celebrate Christmas. I’m not a Grinch or anything. I’m just more a Festivus girl. If you don’t know what Festivus is then … wait, really? You don’t know what Festivus is? If you don’t know then you probably don’t have Internet and you are probably not reading this so I will move along. I have put up my Festivus pole, and I plan to wrestle with the head of the household for the feats of strength. The head of our household is our wiener dog, Homer, so that shouldn’t be too hard. But my favorite part of […]Read On »

TERRIERS is one of those great shows that few people watched, but those who did, were passionate about it. The FX series concerned ex-cop Hank Dolworth (Donal Logue) and his best friend ex-thief Brit Morgan (Michael Raymond-James) who teamed up as unlicensed private eyes in San Diego and stumbled across a CHINATOWN-like scheme. The series finale aired Wednesday. Usually, when a TV series is canceled, the network lets it slip away as quietly as possible. However, when FX decided not to renew freshman series TERRIERS on Friday, network president John Landgraf took the rare step of organizing a conference call […]Read On »

Sometimes you need the bark and bite, which is what Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James bring to the new FX private eye series TERRIERS which airs its season finale tonight. TERRIERS is one of those truly great shows where you can lose yourself in its world, which feels authentic and yet just a bit weird. Created by Ted Griffin, who executive-produces with Shawn Ryan, TERRIERS concerns a pair of extremely low-rent, unlicensed private eyes plying their trade in San Diego, California, where the series is filmed on location. The show takes its name from the dogged determination of its characters, […]Read On »

It’s been a very chaotic week for Fox’s Monday night line-up. First, the network canceled their ambitious and critically acclaimed soap opera LONE STAR from the schedule after two episodes. Next, they called up their excellent procedural LIE TO ME to pinch hit in its old Monday at 9:00 p.m. time slot (which it occupied all summer), resulting in a mad scramble to get the word out of this change. And finally, your brand new pop cultural destination ASSIGNMENT X nabbed our first big scoop – LIE TO ME star Tim Roth wanted to speak with us about the show […]Read On »
