The Last Ship, the law-and-justice drama Major Crimes and the sci-fi thriller Falling Skies are all officially coming back for another season, though it will be the last trip for one of them.
The ratings are in, and the cable network’s latest drama is absolutely crushing. On Monday, TNT let fans know that The Last Ship has been the biggest cable drama to launch in the ratings in 2014 (at least so far).
Summer has always been the season for Hollywood to bring out its biggest spectacles, giving audiences larger-than-life experiences that can’t be replicated anywhere else. And that’s exactly what TNT has done with The Last Ship, bringing the tentpole action movie to the small screen, and sacrificing nothing by doing so.
The show follows those aboard the USS Nathan James, a US Navy warship that was at sea while a pandemic of mysterious origins laid waste to a giant percentage of the world’s population. On board the vessel are Commander Tom Chandler (Dane), scientist Rhona Mitra (Rachel Scott), second-in-command Mike Slattery (Adam Baldwin) and a whole bunch of other faces we’ll presumably get to know better along the way
Though Dane started his career in bit roles on sitcoms like Saved by the Bell and Roseanne, he quickly shifted into more dramatic fare, with roles on series like Gideon’s Crossing, where he also played a doctor, and Charmed. His film career also started to take off, appearing as Multiple Man in Brett Ratner’s X-Men: The Last Stand, the same year he wrapped the stethoscope around his neck as Dr. Sloan.
As we head into the summer season, we're slowly approaching the premiere of Legends, a new crime drama that will put Sean Bean back in the small screen in a starring role. As the new trailer indicates, the truth is up for grabs, but not nearly as easy to grasp as say, a gun.
Arriving tomorrow night on TNT is Murder in the First, the latest series from Steven Bochco, the man behind NYBD Blue, Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and the TNT legal drama Raising the Bar. Also Cop Rock, it's worth noting, but they can't all be winners, right?
Sean Bean's Legends character Martin Odum is a lie. Or so say the posters TNT has revealed for their intriguing new drama series Legends, in which Bean plays an undercover agenda at the FBI Deep Cover Operations division. Both posters put Bean in profile as Martin Odum, who's clasping a gun and looking lost in thought.
Among the series to join TNT's line-up this summer is Michael Bay's The Last Ship, which unsurprisingly, looks pretty thrilling! TNT has given that one a June release date along with releasing the above trailer. The network also released a date and trailer for the fourth season of Falling Skies.
TNT released a new trailer for Howard Gordon's suspenseful looking drama Legends at SXSW this week. The drama puts Sean Bean back on the small screen in a starring role, this time around playing an undercover FBI agents who begins to struggle with what looks like a pretty major identity crisis.TNT has it on the schedule to debut this August.
Looks like this gangster is going to swim with the fishes. After running for three weeks, Frank Darabont’s mid-season series turned limited event series Mob City has not gotten the green light for a second season. TNT cancelled the 1940s gangster drama from the former The Walking Dead showrunner on Monday. This is the third consecutive drama series that the network has cancelled after a single season.
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 year’s nominations put Behind the Candelabra stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon up against one another, and the same for Top of the Lake’s 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...
There’s 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 they’ve 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.
