The nominations for the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced today. As you may have surmised by the title, these awards celebrate excellence in acting as presented by the Screen Actors Guild (aka SAG). This yearís nominations put Behind the Candelabra stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon up against one another, and the same for Top of the Lakeís Holly Hunter and Elisabeth Moss.
One of the most anticipated new series this midseason (or 'three week event' rather) is Frank Darabont's Mob CIty. And to promote TNT's new 1940s set gangster drama, the network has commissioned this poster from legendary artist Drew Struzan. You may not know his name but you definitely know his work...
Thereís no stopping The Rock these days. Beyond his involvement in professional wrestling, Dwayne Johnson has found success on the big screen. He also produces a reality competition series called The Hero, and it looks like TNT is aiming to expand their relationship with The Rock, as they announced today that theyíve greenlit a new series from Johnson called Wake Up Call (working title), which Johnson will not only executive produce, but also star.
If there's a down side to watching all of those cooking shows that air on the various cable channels, it's that all of the delicious food being prepared by chefs -- amateur and professional alike -- are inaccessible to us through our television sets. We can look, but we can't taste.
He's from Private Practice, she's from Boss, and together Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson make a very pretty crime-solving duo, as evidenced in the photo above, which shows the two stars of Murder in the First, a new scripted drama TNT just greenlit to series. TNT announced this week that they're moving forward with the project, which will star Diggs and Robertson as homicide detectives Terry English and Hildy Mulligan respectively.
Since his departure from The Walking Dead, fans of Frank Darabont have been waiting for his next project. For a while, we've known that project would be Mob City -- formerly known as L.A. Noir -- a drama he's been developing for TNT. While we still have months to go before the series debuts, we're starting to see some finished promotional material for the drama. That includes two dark and glamorous new posters that seem to go out of their way to sell sex and violence individually.
If you're a TNT viewer, you can expect next summer to look a lot like this summer as the cable channel has officially renewed three of its summer shows. Rizzoli & Isles, Major Crimes and Perception will all be back with new seasons next summer.
Just like several people in the promo, I was blown away by this first look at Mob City. Ever since Frank Darabont's post-Walking Dead project was announced, the TNT (knows) drama seemed like one of new shows worth keeping a (private) eye on and the "sneak peek" certainly did nothing to alter that perception. The flashy, vivid and even greasy trailer for the period piece only moved it even higher on the list of this year's most anticipated series.
Thanks to Steven Spielbergís executive producer credit, much was expected of Falling Skies when it premiered on TNT all the way back in June of 2011, but even so, Iím not sure anyone expected the alien invasion fallout drama to be consistently crush every summer. During most weeks, itís among the most watched shows cable shows on television, and itís already been renewed for a fourth season.
Of the cast members least likely to return to 24 for the series' planned comeback next year, Louis Lambardi is probably high on the list. Granted, presumed dead characters have been known to come back to life -
Just a few days ago TNTís drama Falling Skies announced a presence at Comic Con this year for Friday, July 19 (with Wil Wheaton signed on to moderate as an added bonus). Stars and executives from the series will sign autographs and share some news regarding whatís coming up in the future. Instead of saving the biggest announcement for the day, however, the network jumped the gun a little on Tuesday, announcing that Falling Skies will return for a fourth season and is expected to air during the summer of 2014.
The Comic Con news that was once trickling in now seems to be trickling a bit faster. It's not quite a flood yet, and we might not expect it to be until SDCC announces each days full line-up of panels and those of us planning to attend begin the nerve-racking process of trying to figure out how we can attend all of the panels we want to attend, which - for any fan obsessed with more than one comic, TV show or movie franchise - is virtually impossible...
Real-life married couple Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn aren't opposed to sharing screen time together, which is to the benefit of TNT's upcoming new drama King & Maxwell. Romijn is set to star in the series, and today comes word that O'Connell will appear in a guest role at some point during the show's first season.
Ever since Dwayne ďThe RockĒ Johnsonís reality competition project, The Hero, landed at TNT, the network has been pretty good about keeping the new series in the limelight, producing teasers and a summer premiere date. Now, we can finally take a look at the series that will be headlined and executive produced by Johnson. Interestingly, the 5-minute sneak peek is far more dramatic than you might expect.
Just a few weeks after Southland's Season 5 finale aired, TNT opted to cancel its on-the-street cop drama. Despite Season 5 being the last time weíll get to see the cast in action, fans of the show will be able to relive their favorite moments from the final episodes when Southland: The Complete Fifth and Final Season hits DVD on August 13.
