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?
Over a century after their infamous family feud ended, the Hatfields and McCoys have made history once again, this time on TV. History's three-part miniseries, which concluded last night, is now the highest rated non-sports broadcast in basic cable history. That's something any Hatfield or McCoy would be proud of.
