Kurt Sutter’s ‘Bastard Executioner’ Heads to Series at FX


I mean this was already a done deal. FX would be crazy to not stay in the Kurt Sutter business. Can’t wait to see this.

Originally posted on Variety:

Kurt Sutter’s period drama “The Bastard Executioner” is “heading” to series.

FX has given a 10-episode order to the drama created by the “Sons of Anarchy” creator about a Late Middle Ages warrior knight who gets pulled back into fighting just when he thought he was out. Lee Jones plays titular executioner Wilkin Brattle, a warrior knight in King Edward I’s charge.

Sutter wrote the pilot. He is exec producing along with Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo and Paris Barclay. Barclay directed the pilot. Sutter also appears in the series, along with his wife, Katey Sagal, Stephen Moyer, Flora Spencer-Longhurst and Sam Spruell. The cast also includes Darren Evans, Danny Sapani, Timothy V. Murphy, Sarah White, Sarah Sweeney, Elen Rhys, Ethan Griffiths and Matthew Rhys.

‘The Mindy Project’ Moving to Hulu for Season 4 After Fox Cancellation


, , , , ,


YESSSSS HULU!!! Love this.

Originally posted on Variety:

Mindy Kaling is going digital: Hulu has ordered a fourth season of “The Mindy Project” — 26 new episodes in all — of the comedy series Fox recently cancelled.

The newest installment of the series, starring Kaling as obstetrician/gynecologist Mindy Lahiri, will premiere later this year exclusively on Hulu’s subscription service under an agreement with NBCUniversal’s Universal Television.

Variety previously reported that Universal TV was in talks with Hulu about bringing the show back for additional seasons.

Hulu subscribers will be able to stream past and future episodes of “The Mindy Project” exclusively on Hulu. Since its network premiere in 2012, “Mindy Project” has been one of the most-viewed shows on Hulu. Currently, Hulu is the exclusive streaming home to all past episodes of the series, which it acquired in a library deal with NBCU announced in April 2014.

Upfronts 2015: CW Schedule


, , , , , , , ,

The CW always last on the schedule doesn’t have much coming this 2015-2016 season. They have had a pretty great year renewing everything except Hart of Dixie and The Messengers (which absolutely no one watched). They have picked up only 3 shows from their development slate, 1 for the Fall and 2 coming at midseason. I still think Super Girl (picked up for CBS) should be theirs but I’ll reserve judgment after I watch that pilot. They also moved a couple of their returning shows to new nights giving Julie Plec a night of her own with her shows, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals (which I thought should have been put together from the moment The Originals spinoff was a go but what do I know).

Cancelled: Hart of Dixie, The Messengers

Happy Holidays everyone. It’s the time of year when families have holiday decorations out and the temperature drops a little too much for my liking. It’s also the time of year when there is nothing on TV and all your favorite shows take a winter hiatus (Perfect time to catch up on stuff you haven’t seen). On the bright side, many shows are returning from hiatus or premiering as early as the first day of the new year. With that being said, I have put together a nice little guide to all the return and premiere dates of your favorite shows and soon to be favorites. The guide is will be updated when new dates are announced so be sure to come back and check on your show if it’s not there.
