Apart from a number of casting announcements over the last few months, we haven't heard much from History's upcoming original series 'Vikings,' which is set to feature as much sword-swinging action as fellow beloved genre series like 'Game of Thrones' and the upcoming 'Spartacus: War of the Damned.' No longer need we wait! History has released our first look at the epic action of 'Vikings,' a bit light on the story, but nonetheless cool. Get your first taste of 'Vikings' blood inside!

These days, one of the surest ways to capitalize on an original blockbuster success is to develop a reality series inspired by its premise. We saw an example earlier this week with The CW putting into development a reality series with a striking similarity to 'The Hunger Games,' though this may be the most surprising example to date. Based on the runaway award-winning success of History's 'Hatfields & McCoys' the cable channel is going back to the well to develop a reality TV series around the descendants of the famous family. Will it be just as buzz-worthy?

It seems you just can't keep 'The Kennedys' down, no matter how hard history tries.  Earlier in the month we'd heard chatter that ReelzChannel might be looking to follow up its successful historical mini-series 'The Kennedys' with a sequel series following the later generations, and now it seems the network has made it official.  But what will provide the source material for the new mini-series, and who might take part from the previous outing?

But didn't they...hmm. It's of interest to note that while nowhere near the storied history of the famous Kennedy family itself, historical miniseries 'The Kennedys' went through quite a bit of controversy in its own right just to make it to air the first time around. Dumped by The History Channel and largely eschewed by every other network, the Greg Kinnear/Katie Holmes political dramatization eventually landed on ReelzChannel to mixed reviews, but is a sequel now in the works?

It's hard to think of Miley Cyrus as anything other than Hannah Montana, even now when she's smoking bongs, cutting her hair to look like Draco Malfoy and getting engaged to 'The Hunger Games' heartthrob Liam Hemsworth. Perhaps if she lands a gig on the Lifetime network playing one of the most infamously recognized criminals in history, she'll be able to completely break that image.

'Hatfields & McCoys,' The History Channel's three-part, six-hour mini-series dramatizing one of the most famous blood feuds in American history, may not have taken home the 2012 Emmy Award for Outstanding Miniseries or Movie, but it can boast having the best lead actor in that category.
Kevin Costner, who portrayed Anse "Devil" Hatfield, took home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries. And if you didn't see his performance... well, as he said during his acceptance speech, "Thank god for TV reruns."

With 'Game of Thrones' only satisfying us for ten weeks out of the year, and 'Spartacus' deciding to end the series altogether after the next season, fans of sword-swinging genre TV might find themselves a little starved for fresh blood.  We've been carefully following the development of The History Channel's original series 'Vikings,' and now we've learned who'll play our hero, Ragnar Lothbrok!  Who else has joined the cast to plunder and pillage?

Since last week was so jam packed with upfronts announcing every new and returning show, unending trailers and press releases, this week has seen a bit of movement on the other networks gaining traction with their own original programming.  We'd heard a bit about The History Channel's upcoming 'Vikings' epic before, but now the network gives us 'Treatment' to their first major casting!

They hunt alligators in the Louisana bayou for a living and yet it was a car accident that nearly killed 'Swamp People' stars, Tommy Chauvin ("Trigger Tommy") and his step-dad, Joe LaFont ("Trapper Joe"). The two men were involved in a massive five-car pile-up near the Arkansas-Louisana border yesterday, though both walked away unharmed and ready to hunt more gators.
