Conversations about NBC’s upcoming limited series Heroes: Reborn have revolved around what characters may or may not return to join the new ones, and Zachary Quinto’s power-grubbing Sylar was one of the characters that fans want to return. But there’s one Heroes fan that has the power to make that not happen.
We’ve known for a while that the NBC drama Heroes is being rebooted as a 13-episode continuation series. We’ve been hearing about the new version of the NBC series, called Heroes Reborn, for quite some time, but today the show finally got a little more traction, signing on former Chuck star Zachary Levi.
Fans of a particular brand of eyewear will be pumped to know that Jack Coleman has officially signed on as the first returning cast member, reprising his fan-favorite role of Company man Noah Bennet.
NBC is barely going back in time at all for their upcoming event series Heroes Reborn, a follow-up to the hit series Heroes, and the network has unveiled an extremely vague official synopsis for fans to gnaw on until the pre-production phase offers us some real news.
Heroes lives! Or it's technically being "reborn" in the form of an event series. NBC made the official announcement this weekend, releasing a brief teaser that revives the eclipse imagery used for Tim Kring's 2006 drama. NBC says Heroes Reborn will be an event miniseries and they're looking to get it on the air in 2015.
It looks like The CW is determined to get a Tim Kring series on their network. Last month we learned that the Heroes creator was developing a drama for the CW based on the upcoming book Dorothy Must Die and today comes word that Kring's production company Tim Kring Imperative and Warner Bros. TV are teaming up for another project being put into development for the network, and this one sounds a bit closer to Heroes than the Oz-set drama.
Could NBC's Heroes be making a comeback? There's reportedly talk of the superhero drama being revived as part of MSN's push toward original programming through XBox. MSN is said to be interested in "relaunching" the NBC Universal series, but obviously with new characters and heroes. Ideally, there would be cameos from the show's original cast if their schedules allowed.
It's nearly Halloween, which means many TV shows are aiming for big scares or Halloween costume fun with one Halloween-themed installment to mark the occasion. And then there are the series that make Halloween a season-long affair, regularly delivering creepy, violent, scary characters that leave a memorable impression. We came up with a list of some of the most scary villains on television.
Even with the rapid deterioration of this last television project, Tim Kring's Touch seems to be gaining some momentum by adding another star to a cast that already includes Kiefer Sutherland and David Mazouz. The one-hour drama pilot just added Danny Glover to the mix. Apparently he's not too old for this TV shit.
Content has been looking up in the past year with the release of Being Human, which averaged 1.9 million viewers in the winter season, and the continued popularity of Warehouse 13. Now, Heroes’ Masi Oka is teaming up with writer Alex Sabeti for a new parallel-universe show called The Correctors. The pair has developed The Correctors together, but ultimately Sabeti will write and Oka will executive produce and possibly star.
There’s some good news pertaining to the adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series. It was announced today that Mark Verheiden has been signed on to co-write the NBC TV series alongside Akiva Goldsman.
If you’re like me, there’s a good chance you’re missing Kiefer Sutherland’s furrowed brow on your TV screen each Monday night this winter. While we may not be getting Jack Bauer back any time soon, there’s a chance we could be seeing Sutherland in a new role on Fox if the pilot he’s signed on for gets picked up.
Apparently, Kiefer Sutherland is network loyal. The former star of Fox’s 24 has an eye on a new drama pilot, also being produced by 20th Century Fox TV, as well as Chernin Entertainment. If Sutherland takes the role, he will be playing the father of a mute and autistic boy who has amazing prediction capabilities. I’ll give you three guesses to figure out who is behind this plot. And, no, it’s not M Night Shyamalan
The female lead for the Showtime pilot House of Lies has been cast. Set to star opposite Don Cheadle is Dawn Olivieri (Heroes, True Blood).
The world of television is ever changing. Mostly having to do with reality stars and their “will they, won’t they” contract signing drama. But there’s a lot going on each week in TV, and not all of it’s good.
