Those old enough to remember – or retro enough to watch rerun channels – have spent years thinking of Ironside as the character portrayed by Raymond Burr for eight seasons (1967-1975), a police detective in a wheelchair whose skills were entirely cerebral rather than physical. Now NBC has rebooted IRONSIDE, Wednesdays, beginning October 2, at 10 PM, with Blair Underwood in the leading role. Underwood’s NYPD detective Robert Ironside may have lost the use of his legs as the result of a high fall in the line of duty, but he works out ferociously to strengthen the rest of his […]Read On »

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 »

While speaking with NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt at this summer’s 2011 TCA, ASSIGNMENT X asked about the status of THE EVENT wrap-up movie. Although things aren’t set in stone, Greenblatt does hint that a final decision about its ultimate fate could be decided quite soon. “It’s been discussed with Syfy and a few weeks ago it seemed more possible than it does today, but I honestly don’t know,” says Greenblatt. However, Greenblatt is quick to point out that THE EVENT, if it does get this last-minute reprise, will not air on NBC. “If it happens, it would definitely be […]Read On »

In THE EVENT, airing Mondays on NBC at 9 PM, a variety of people, from the U.S. President (Blair Underwood) to ordinary-seeming young man Sean Walker (Jason Ritter), are coping with the revelation that there are Others among us. It’s not entirely clear whether these human-looking Others are extraterrestrials or not, but they have some pretty impressive abilities and a whole range of attitudes towards the human race. A group of Others, headed up by leader Sophia (Laura Innes), have been kept at an Alaskan base for sixty-plus years, but all of that is changing now. Meanwhile, some Others have […]Read On »
