Fox has released a new trailer for the upcoming "Dollhouse" TV series, created by Joss Whedon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Firefly") and starring Eliza Dushku ("Tru Calling," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"). "Dollhouse" premieres in January. Here is the official plot synopsis:
Well "King of Hill" has been cancelled, but apparently that's not 100% correct. At least one network has already expressed interest in the show, which was recently canned by Fox.
The suitor is none other than ABC, as "King of the Hill" would make a strong companion to the network's upcoming animated comedy "The Goode Family," which comes from "King of the Hill" executive producers Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky.
Well it seems that flower power at ABC may have withered and died. Pushing Daisies, the critical favorite that turned primetime TV into a upside-down pineapple pie, may be the latest show to be on the chopping block. With the production on the series initial 13-episode order due to end on November 12, the lack of a full-season pickup has Daisies fans and cast members thinking the touch of death is upon them.
If you're looking for a nice bit of escapist fantasy to pass the time, Legend of the Seeker may be just what the doctor ordered. Filmed in good ol' New Zealand, the series is based on the novels of Terry Goodkind (although fans of those epic books may not recognize the television version!) The action gets underway with a pair of mysterious girls, fleeing for their very lives from a gang of well-armed brutes. Both tragedy & magic ensue, and we certainly weren't surprised when their task ultimately led to the obligitory unprepared lad whose fate had been sealed long before he was born.
Well the guys over at IGN Comics recently spoke to prolific comic book write Geoff Johns. Johns has written an episode of Smallville for this season, which will see the introduction of DC Comics' Legion of Super Heroes into the series which is awesome news for us Smallville fans.
Asked about that episode, Johns said, "I'm actually in Vancouver all week for the filming. Wait until you see it. So far it's been amazing to be involved with the writers in Los Angeles, particularly Darren Swimmer. And the cast and crew have been awesome – Tom [Welling], Allison [Mack] and Kristin [Kreuk] are in my episode and they are freaking amazing. Tom came up with a fantastic addition to the Legion Code, he impresses the hell out of me. He keeps the energy up on the set, keeps things fun, and he's unbelievably smart. He approaches everything with incredible intelligence."
He also talked about the Smallville actors in which , Johns said, "Allison is not only an amazing actress, and she had to do some pretty intense things in this episode, she's the nicest person ever. She's also incredibly respectful of the fan base of the show and how far reaching it is. Every line she delivers makes you smile. Kristen is an unbelievable actress too. She delivered such a powerful scene Tuesday, it was more heartfelt than anything I could ever deliver on a page. She made the scene come to life. And, like Tom and Allison, [she's] super nice."
Johns went on to add, "I love who they have playing the Legion. They look great. I'll talk more about them when they're announced. But they freaking rock. Legion rings, the villain's weapon -- holy s**t, wait until you see HIM-- "Grife!", they are the Legion."
Johns was very happy about his experience on set, noting, "James Marshall, the executive producer up here, has put together an unbelievable crew. The crew up here is really a family, many of them having worked together for eight years. I've been up here for a week and I already feel like I'm a surrogate member. I've never enjoyed myself this much on a set, ever. Watching everyone work so hard to bring the Legion to life is a dream. But the superhero of the show for me has been the director, Glen Winter. I'm amazed to watch him, how instinctual he is on the set, how much he's embraced the Legion, how he directs the actors and his shot choices… I worked for Richard Donner when I got out of school and he had an incredible instinct and talent for making the set come alive, making it all fun and really letting the love for the material shine through. Glen's the same way. If there's a season 9, I'd kill to do another episode with Glen. It's been an unbelievable experience all around."
Asked if he had to make any tough compromises to make the Legion fit in the Smallville world, John replied, "I'm actually surprised by how faithful the Legionnaires will be to the comics. It's really faithful to the comic book series. Who they are as people, what they do, it's all in there. Obviously it's going to be a little different because they're just coming back for the first time to meet Clark. They're uniforms are the Smallville versions, not spandex. But I'm really happy with how faithful it is. And writing the first live action of the Legion is an honor."
So will you be tuning in to see this episode when it airs?
Well it seems that Heroes is digging a mighty deep hole and as each new episode passes it's just getting deeper and darker with no chance of ever getting out it seems. Well to add to woe's it seems that "Heroes" co-executive producers Jesse Alexander and Jeph Loeb have been fired by NBC, thats right folks I said Fired! The writers/producers have been with the show since its first season and were known to have led the day-to-day production operation under the direction of creator/executive producer Tim Kring.
