We only recently got our first good look at the world of Powerless, DC and NBC’s kooky office comedy set in its comic book universe—but now footage from the show has made its way onto the internet, giving us our first real glimpse at the tone this series is going for... and it’s looking rather goofy and fun.
HBO might have killed off True Blood a couple of years ago, but NBC is hoping that its creator, Charlaine Harris, will bring them a new hit. According to Deadline, it just picked up an adaptation of, Midnight, Texas, her latest series.
NBC’s spent two years changing its mind about the modern Wizard of Oz show Emerald City. But if the show’s as great as this photo of Florence Kasumba as the Wicked Witch of the East, then it will totally be worth it.
NBC just put a lot of faith in DC’s foray into the world of superhero comedy—Powerless, the long-in-the-works show about an insurance company working in the DC Comics universe. The show has received a full series order on the network, and to celebrate, DC has released the first pictures from the show’s pilot, which…
NBC’s DC Comics office comedy Powerless apparently has free reign to pick whatever heroes it wants from the vast DC pantheon of heroes. Turns out, what the show’s actually doing, is giving us some of the most obscure characters it can muster, starting with... Crimson Fox?
There was a lot of things to love about Clone Wars, but Matt Lanter’s portrayal of Anakin Skywalker—which turned the character into a relatable, tragic hero rather than the petulant sand-hater of the prequels—was near the top. So good news! Lanter will now headline NBC’s delightful-sounding time-travel cop show.
Every time we hear about it, it amazes us that Powerless, NBC’s comedy series about a completely normal insurance company office in the DC comics world, might actually be happening. But now it has its taking a big step towards reality with the casting of Vanessa Hudgens in the lead role.
It’s called Time. Honestly, when it comes to time travel, simplicity in the name is probably best.
Executives for CBS’s Supergirl have said that they’ll never cross the DC heroine over with CW’s The Flash or Arrow, but according to Bleeding Cool, they might be changing their minds.
True Blood bit its last throat in 2014, but NBC is hoping it can duplicate HBO’s mega-success by adapting another fantasy series from works by author Charlaine Harris, called Midnight, Texas. It’s based on Harris’ trilogy about a small town filled with spooky secrets.
We’re no closer to the truth about Jane Doe’s past on Blindspot but we’re now intimate with betrayal. How could you do this to me, Blindspot? How could you do this to Mystery Beard?
Despite the fact that the sequel wasn’t nearly as good as the original, I am all over the idea of a Red TV series. Action-comedies should be everywhere, all the time.
Sad news, Hannibal fans: our cannibal won’t be getting a fourth season. Bryan Fuller thanked NBC for indulging the show’s “images that would have shredded the eyeballs of lesser Standards & Practices enforcers.” Indeed. The season two capper was epic, but look for the series finale to be a bloodbath for the ages.
NBC just unveiled a whole slew of crazy genre television, including what’s basically the TV version of Memento, a whole new Heroes, and another apocalypse comedy.
NBC dropped trailers for its new shows today, including this peek at Heroes Reborn. (EDIT: Apparently this is the same trailer that’s been around since February. Throw us some new details, NBC!) There’s not much revealed here, but it definitely looks like horn rims are still in style.
It’s that time of year where we get a good look at what’s going to be on TV come fall. And we’ve got some things rising from the dead, some obvious done deals, and some things wavering on the bubble. It’s a good time to be a superhero or a Muppet, though.
After ordering ten-episodes of a modern take on The Wizard of Oz, then canceling the show, NBC has re-ordered and un-canceled Emerald City. Dorothy got home easier than this show got on the air.
Holt McCallany (Lights Out) has been tapped to play a former prize fighter and gym owner in Warrior, a show that mixes martial arts and magic in the hunt for an international crime lord. This show's description does not really explain the "magic" part, but we have some guesses.
File this under "rumors," subdivision "things we desperately hope end up being true": Word is that while Constantine isn't doing well on NBC's Friday night programming block, the network believes in the show enough that it's considering moving it to its little sister network Syfy!
