    Katherine Heigl To Form 'The Knitting Circle' With HBO

    With "Killers" tanking and her next effort "One For The Money" relegated to the critical wasteland of a January 27, 2012 release date, has America fallen out of love with Katherine Heigl? That remains to be seen, but clearly the actress is on a bit of a slide these days and she's hoping the creative...

    Danny McBride Talks The Freedom Of TV For 'Eastbound & Down' & The Haven Of HBO

    We know you're aware already, but it bears repeating -- television is producing some of the more ambitious projects these days than their Hollywood movie studio counterparts. HBO in particular has been on the receiving end of much of the praise of late and one has to look no further than Todd Haynes' five-part "Mildred Pierce" (which ends this Sunday, tune in!) -- a sweeping, character driven period drama about a fractious mother/daughter relationship set against the backdrop of the Great Depression and the Jazz Age. Now try walking onto a studio lot and pitching that. But it's not just dramas that have fared well, but comedies too. "Bored to...

    'Superbad' & 'Paul' Director Greg Mottola To Helm Aaron Sorkin's New HBO Pilot

    We love movies, and (good) television, and stories in general. That's why we do what we do. And sometimes, we get up to see the slate of developing stories, and it depresses the fuck out of us. It can be hard to keep up your enthusiasm when movie versions of "Candyland" and reboots of "Ms. Marple" a...

    Ed Harris To Play John McCain To Julianne Moore's Sarah Palin In HBO's 'Game Change'

    For politics buffs, or really anyone, the 2008 election campaign provided an enormous amount of drama. The twists and turns, from Barack Obama's surprise victory at the Iowa caucuses and the tanking of Rudolph Guiliani's campaign to the death of Obama's grandmother on the eve of his election, grippe...

    Netflix Enters Original Content World By Backing David Fincher/Kevin Spacey Series 'House of Cards'

    The term 'game-changer' gets bandied around a lot, but rarely accurately. "The Matrix Revolutions," for instance, was billed as such. So was "Tron: Legacy," and neither seem to have changed any games, as such. "Avatar" has the most claim to the title, seeing as how it immediately encouraged every ot...

    Authors Michael Chabon & Ayelet Waldman Developing 'Hobgoblin,' HBO Series About Magicians In WW2

    Michael Chabon is, incontestably, one of our favorite working writers. A terrific short-story writer and essayist, he particularly shines in his longer-form work, where he often tinkers with genre tropes, applying them to recent Jewish history to frequently astounding effect, as in "The Amazing Adve...
