‘Vlad Dracula’ Series Coming To Starz

So we have True Blood, Twilight, The Walking Dead, and Vampire Diaries but that’s not enough right? We need more shows focusing on the undead, and Starz knows it.

With the help of  writer J. Michael Straczynski (Thor, Changeling, He-Man), and horror/action producers Rob Tapert (The Evil Dead, American Gothic) and Roy Lee (The Strangers, The Ring) they are developing Vlad Dracula. 

The show will focus on Dracula’s age-old struggle, one faced by Pattinson’s Edward Cullen and Brad Pitt’s Louis of Interview With The Vampire – to eat piles and piles of humans, or not.  Continue reading “‘Vlad Dracula’ Series Coming To Starz”

The End Of Khloe And Lamar…On TV, For A Second

Khloe & Lamar has not been cancelled, as we all initially thought. The show is simply on a hiatus.

Really? For a second I was weeping over the end of an era.

No more Lamar being grumpy over his recently soured NBA career, no more Khloe screaming “I love you doll” and inappropriately slapping her five sisters and mom on the behind?

Malika and Rob will just be funneled back onto Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Obviously, I watch the four K-Dash shows way too much. But it isn’t the end, of any of them.

“Our show is not canceled,” Khloe told ET. “Lamar and I have just chosen to take a break this summer. I feel like we’ve been on a whirlwind and doing back-to-back shows.”  Continue reading “The End Of Khloe And Lamar…On TV, For A Second”

‘Lip Service’ Is L Word UK, But Without All The Man-Hating

Fans of Showtime’s now-defunct The L Word (and there are many, gay and straight) would do well to check out BBC Three’s Lip Service which focuses on the lives of three lesbians in Scotland.

Like The L Word, it centers mainly around the romantic and business aspects of these women.

Unlike The L Word, the main characters actually have male friends who, instead of being demonized versions of the gender, are as equally flawed as their female counterparts.  Continue reading “‘Lip Service’ Is L Word UK, But Without All The Man-Hating”

‘Hannibal’ TV Show Gets The NBC Green Light

A TV show focusing on the Thomas Harris protagonist Will Graham (originally played by William Petersen in 1986’s Manhunter and Edward Norton in Red Dragon 2002)  has been picked up by NBC.

The network has ordered 13 episodes of the show. Bryan Fuller, the executive producer of Pushing Daisies and producer for Heroes and Dead Like Me is working on the show, which is reportedly titled “Hannibal.”

No news on who will play FBI profiler Will Graham or the the most despicable yet likable villain of all time, Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

As we saw with the 2006 prequel film starring French actor Gaspard Ulliel, it’s very hard to fill the shoes of Anthony Hopkins. Continue reading “‘Hannibal’ TV Show Gets The NBC Green Light”
