Somehow, if CMT was going to get into the scripted TV game by rescuing Nashville off ABC, it makes almost too much sense a Varsity Blues TV series would follow. The 1999 Texas football favorite is officially huddling up for a TV reboot, regardless of whether or not you want its life.

Watch the Dark and Gritty ‘Power Rangers’ Reboot You’ve Always Wanted (or Dreaded)

by Jacob Hall February 24, 2015 @ 9:46 AM
As the kids of the ‘80s and early ‘90s are dragged kicking and screaming into middle age, their nostalgia for the things they enjoyed in childhood has only grown stronger. And Hollywood has responded in kind, taking those childhood obsessions and transforming them into movies that are specifically crafted to appeal to adults with fond memories instead of kids. That’s why director Joseph Kahn’s new grim ‘n gritty Power Rangers short film is brilliant and unsettling in equal measure. On one hand, it’s exquisitely made and just tongue-in-cheek enough. On the other, it’s exactly the kind of movie that we’re worried will actually get made in the next few years.

All week long we've seen the axes fall and numerous series granted surprising renewals, and at long last CBS has chimed in with their major alterations for the year to come. Not only has Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams' 'The Crazy Ones' suffered a surprising cancellation, but so too has 'LOST' castaway Josh Holloway's 'Intelligence,' the 'Bad Teacher' adaptation and a number of other CBS series.

See the Cast of 'The Rules of Attraction' Then and Now

by Britt Hayes April 26, 2014 @ 3:09 PM
Released in 2002 and based on the book of the same name by Bret Easton Ellis, 'The Rules of Attraction' featured an ensemble cast including hot young stars like James van der Beek and Jessica Biel in an interweaving, darkly comedic series of narratives set at a New Hampshire college. Van der Beek's character, Sean Bateman, was the younger brother of Patrick Bateman, the lead character from Ellis' 'American Psycho,' immortalized on screen by Christian Bale just a couple of years prior. While 'The Rules of Attraction' wasn't the hit that 'American Psycho' was with audiences, the film went on to quickly gain cult status. 12 years later, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to now.

Even though earlier today we heard the news that ABC would likely air the remaining episodes of 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' this summer, after pulling the show from their lineup and effectively cancelling the series, the show's stars have wasted little time in finding new work. Not only has Krysten Ritter join NBC's Will Ferrell / Adam McKay-produced "Assistance," but now Dawson himself, James Van Der Beek will land on CBS as a gynecologist for 'Friends With Better Lives!'

Talk about going meta.  In its first season, 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' (or however you're supposed to say that) surprised viewers by including 'Dawson's Creek' star James Van Der Beek not as an original character, but as a hackneyed, has-been version of himself!  So now that season 2 sees the down-and-out Dawson looking to cash in on his former fame with a 'Dawson's Creek' reunion, what former child sitcom stars will split the 'Middle' and get 'Saved By the Bell?'
