Brace yourself, Sleepy Hollow fans. Fox is making some changes to the supernatural sophomore series. The network’s top brass told reporters they’re planning some creative tweaks to the show in the wake of its troubling ratings plummet this season.
Fox TV chairman and CEO Dana Walden told critics at the TCA press tour that the show will be less serialized and have a slightly lighter tone in the future. “We’re excited about some creative changes on the show and bringing it back to something that feels a little more episodic in nature, that has closure and doesn’t feel quite so serialized,” she said. “But we really love the show. We love Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie. They have fantastic chemistry. We feel like it’s a really unique series.”
Walden later clarified. “We are responding to a little bit to — not necessarily the criticisms — but this show has a high level of difficulty,” she said. “It’s a relationship show, a period show, you have iconic characters, you’re trying to tell mysteries and the show got a little overly serialized this past season. It’s very difficult on a show like this to get the exact right balance. Honestly, we felt watching the show, as passionate viewers, the show got too serialized. As part of our diagnostic process on any show, we tried to determine what’s working and what’s not working. We’re trying to return the fun to it a little bit. It’s an epic battle between good and evil, so there’s a tendency to be a little dark. It’s all about calibrating the show, not about making dramatic changes.”
Having said that, Walden said there’s no current plans to make any cast changes (cough-Katrina-cough). “We don’t have any creative changes [planned],” she said. “It was more [about] having a show that’s easier to access week to week that you don’t have to feel like if you tune into episode three of our new run, that you have to go back and watch the first two. So some greater procedural stories and maybe toning down a little bit the apocalyptic vision that existed in the initial episodes this season.”
It seems that we just can’t get enough of the supernatural world and now WE tv is jumping on the bandwagon with their own original supernatural thriller, “South of Hell”. The series has been given an eight-episode order for a 2015 premiere and comes from two of the top horror producers, Jason Blum and Eli Roth, in their first pairing.
A supernatural thriller set in Savannah, GA, South Of Hell focuses on Maria Abascal, a demon hunter whose power stems from within. The premiere episode will be directed by Roth (Hostel). “As WE tv moves firmly into scripted programming, we are committed to presenting distinctive and engaging stories,” said WE tv President Marc Juris. “That is certainly the case with South Of Hell, a dramatic thriller that introduces viewers to an unforgettable character, supernatural themes and the battle between good and evil.” The premiere episode was written by Matt Lambert. James Manos Jr. (Dexter) is executive producer and showrunner. Blum of Blumhouse Prods (Insidious) also serves as executive producer, along with Gerard Bocaccio, who worked at Blumhouse; Sonar’s former CEO Stewart Till; his replacement, Gene Stein; and Roth.
The synopsis for the show reads:
Charleston, South Carolina is the most possessed city in the world. Evil thrives there. Something with which 30-year-old exorcist Maria Abascal is intimately acquainted. She wrestles demons for a living. Especially Abigail, the one that lives within her. The one who feeds on damned souls and who’s violated the laws of hell to live on earth—and live on, inside Maria. Now, as they work as one, Maria will discover how personal her battle with evil has become and how far Abigail will go to protect them both. It’s a journey where the unspeakable is just a heartbeat away.
WE tv recently announced the cast of “South of Hell,” led by actress Mena Suvari in the dual role of Maria Abascal and her inner demon, Abigail. The cast also includes: Zachary Booth as David Abascal, Maria’s brother; Bill Irwin as Enos Abascal, Maria and David’s father and cult leader; Drew Moerlein as Dusty, Maria’s neighbor; Lamman Rucker as Rev. Elijah Bledsoe, a priest with a strong attraction to Maria,; Paulina Singer as the Reverend’s daughter, Grace; Lydia Hearst as southern belle Charlotte Roberts; Slate Holmgren as the local drug dealer, Sweetmouth; and Lauren Velez as Tetra, a spiritual informant.
According to a report from THR, The Vampire Diaries has added another recurring character.
Whilst the show introduced “Sarah” a in the first half of the season, she wasn’t the real Sarah. THR reports that Tristan Mays has landed the recurring role of Sarah on The CW’s recently renewed vampire drama.
The real Sarah is described as a bright and gifted student of photography, whose life is turned upside down as she unravels the mystery of her true family history.
The character is the daughter of Zach Salvatore (Chris William Martin), Damon (IanSomerhalder) and Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) distant nephew.
Mays will make her debut on The CW series during the Jan. 22 episode. She can currently be seen in the Kevin Hart/Josh Gad comedy The Wedding Ringer which bows Jan. 16.
If your a fan of zombies then this show could be right up your alley. Zombies seem to be the new vampires and the CW is not missing the boat on them. Their new show, iZombie is based on a comic book series created by writer Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, published by DC Comics’s Vertigo imprint beginning in 2010. Read on to find out more and watch the preview below:
iZOMBIE” (slated to premiere March 17th) on The CW
Olivia “Liv” Moore was a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out…until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. Now as one of the newly undead, Liv is doing her best to blend in and look as human as possible. Her appearance passes for “Goth,” with shockingly pale skin and nearly white hair, and her demeanor has gone from exuberant to exhausted.
The change in Liv is baffling to her former fiancé, Major, her mother, Eva, and her best friend and roommate, Peyton, who still has the high-energy, Type-A personality that Liv has completely abandoned. Despite her post-traumatic ennui, Liv has devised a clever way to resist her baser urges to devour fresh human brains – she’s taken a job in the Seattle coroner’s office. In this appropriately dead-end job, Liv can secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John Doe corpses that make a final stop in the morgue. Despite carefully covering her tracks, Liv’s brilliant but eccentric boss, Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, discovers her secret and is surprisingly excited about the scientific possibilities. Dr. Ravi even helps Liv in her search for Blaine, the zombie responsible for her current undead status.
Even with her boss’ enthusiasm, Liv remains resigned to an eternity as a zombie without hope or purpose – until she realizes that with every brain she consumes, she retains a portion of that person’s memories. Liv suddenly begins to experience disturbing and often violent visions from the point of view of the murder victims. Much to the surprise of Dr. Ravi and homicide detective Clive Babineaux, Liv often has detailed knowledge of crime scenes and motives that she can’t easily explain. Posing as a psychic, she works with Detective Babineaux to investigate these crimes and discover who is responsible. It’s not the same as being alive again, but at least she can find purpose in her undead existence by helping Clive solve the murders of those who are indeed fully dead.
The series stars Rose McIver (“Masters of Sex,” “Once Upon a Time”) as Liv, Malcolm Goodwin (“Breakout Kings”) as Clive Babineaux, newcomer Rahul Kohli as Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, Robert Buckley (“One Tree Hill”) as Major Lilywhite and David Anders (“Once Upon a Time,” “The Vampire Diaries”) as Blaine DeBeers. Based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, and published by DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, iZOMBIE is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Spondoolie Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars,” “Party Down,” “Cupid”), Diane Ruggiero-Wright (“Veronica Mars,” “The Ex List,” “That’s Life”), Danielle Stokdyk (“Veronica Mars,” “Party Down,” “Cupid”) and Dan Etheridge (“The Carrie Diaries,” “Veronica Mars,” “Party Down”).
