'Krypton' Series In Development At Syfy

krypton

December 8, 2014 – Syfy and Warner Horizon Television announced today they are developing a one-hour drama series project Krypton, which will reveal a chapter of the DC Comics universe that has rarely been told.

Years before the Superman legend we know, the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This series follows The Man of Steel's grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.

Krypton is being executive produced by David S. Goyer (Constantine, Da Vinci’s Demons, Man of Steel, The Dark Knight trilogy, upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) and Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, FlashForward) for Warner Horizon Television.

Goldberg is writing the pilot teleplay, based on a story conceived by Goyer & Goldberg.

Shivakamini Somakandarkram! FXX’s hit comedy series The League will return for its seventh and final season with 13 episodes in the fall of 2015, it was announced today by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions.

The series is produced by FX Productions.

“Our gang can burn a beach house like Calvin Johnson on a secondary but I shudder to think what they’ll do in the final battle for the Shiva,” said Grad. “The real studs here are the fans who have remained so loyal to the show over the years, including the move to FXX, and for them we are going out on top.”

Interview: Sherri Saum

99982135_640

Every once in a while a show comes along that not only entertains you, but makes a statement. A show that combines all the elements of a great television series, but at the same time tackles issues and subjects that are not only important, but relevant. ABC Family has such a show on its network, The Fosters.

Currently in its second season, the show has become a favorite with not only fans and critics, but has also become an important beacon for race relations, the LGBT community and has also changed our idea of what a “family” is today. The series will be airing its Christmas episode on Monday, December 8th 8/7c. One of the reasons the show is such a success is the work of actress Sherri Saum who plays Lena Adams Foster.

We sit down to talk with the talented actress about the importance of the series, how having twins has changed the way she sees her character and the show and what the fans mean to her, the cast and crew.

red-band-society

Looks like FOX is pulling the plug on its highly promoted freshman drama series.

According to Deadline, the network has decided not to order more episodes beyond the original thirteen episodes. Production will halt in mid-December and the final episode to air will be the fall finale scheduled for December 3rd. Right now there is no word on what will happen with the final three finished episodes of the series.

Red Band Society followed a group of teenagers living together as patients in a hospital's pediatric ward. The show has not been the breakout hit that FOX was looking for and at best, it's ratings have been modest.
