Hannibal fans, get ready to drown your sorrows in buckets of Chianti, as some of the most promising avenues for the seriesí continuation have been shut down. Why won't somebody just jump in and save this masterpiece?
Kevin Costner may be heading to television. Word broke this week that the veteran actor is in talks to star in a potential TV drama from popular producer David E. Kelley. The project is called The Trial, and itís currently being set up over at Amazon.
Amazon Studios is dutifully trying to beef up its original programming slate to, if not catch up to Netflix, then at least keep itself in the same conversation. The best way to do that is to keep their most critically acclaimed series going as long as possible, which will happen now that Transparent has been renewed for Season 3.
Earlier this year, it seemed like The Legend of Zelda might end up getting a live-action TV series on Netflix, but that news was shot down almost immediately after it was announced. Now it looks like the project might be up and running again (like Epona), but it will have a new home.
For a man who doesn't even own a computer, jumping into the world of television can be a difficult feat. And only a few months in, Woody Allen already regrets agreeing to writing and directing a Amazon TV series.
Sid and Marty Kroft's Sigmund and the Seamonsters has been picked by Amazon for an series remake. The live action show from the 70s was part of a classic group of shows including Land of the Lost.
One year ago, Amazon Studios was mostly known for bringing John Goodman back to episodic work, but itís now the home of a bustling line of original programming and intriguing upcoming projects, and its current standout Transparent is soon getting a free-to-stream run for those without Amazon Prime subscriptions.
As with their earlier Pilot Seasons, Amazon has brought a genre-jumping variety of would-be series for viewers of all ages, and there are three of them that absolutely need to be enjoyed by everyone now, so that they may one day get full series orders. (Not that a series order did Chris Carterís After any good.) Check them all out and vote, vote, vote!
Having brought his own co-written novel to TV with FXís The Strain, del Toro is quite possibly in the most prolific period of his career, and he's getting ready to return to a once-vacated project with magic at its center.
Amazon Fire TV has worked to become an awesome set-top box, but one giant piece was missing until today. This morning, HBO Go was finally made available on Amazon Fire TV, and the subscription streaming service also notes that a deal has been worked out so that Fire TV Stick owners will get the service. More details after the jump.
Which series is more popular, House of Cards or Orange is the New Black? And how many people have watched Alpha House and Transparent? Amazon and Netflix haven't exactly been willing to share that information, but it may be available soon enough, as Nielsen's going to start collecting their own data, much in the way they do with network and cable television.
Weíre living in a world that is as connected to past media as it is to present media. While some reminders of the past are good, others have to come with their own ďethnic and racial prejudiceĒ warnings. Recently, we learned Amazon Prime has slapped one of these warnings on a very famous cartoon. Tom and Jerry, the cat and mouse comedy created way back in 1940 by William Hanna and Jack Barbera, now comes with its own warning label.
The Man in the High Castle comes from Ridley Scottís production company Scot Free, and you may remember they tried to turn this novel into a 4-hour miniseries for the BBC a few years ago, and then later tried with a Syfy miniseries. Will the third time be the charm?
And Soderbergh isnít the only big name in Red OaksĎ corner. Directing the pilot will be David Gordon Green, who recently returned to his dramatic roots with Nic Cage in Joe, though heíll probably be bringing his Eastbound & Down swagger to this project.
This week, Amazon launched their new set-top box Fire TV, along with the above ad, which has Gary Busey expressing his love of talking to things. That leads into a demonstration of of the voice search -- "that actually works" -- feature that's included with this new device. After wandering around talking to random objects, Busey attempts to search for himself on Roku but is denied. Things go a bit better for him when he uses Amazon's Fire TV, which gives him all the Busey he can handle.
