HBO's Bad Robot-helmed 'Westworld' remake series seemed all but shelved until casting finally moved forward with Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood, and now the Abrams-Nolan collaboration has made some major additions to its fictional fantasy. In addition to 'The Hunger Games' and 'Boardwalk Empire' star Jeffrey Wright, HBO's 'Westworld' has added 'Raising Hope' lead Shannon Woodward, a '300' star and more!
FOX has officially joined the ranks of broadcast networks to release their fall 2013-2014 premiere schedule, leaving ABC the lone holdout. Among the bigger changes on deck for the network, 'The X-Factor' will debut over two nights with a solid four hours, while 'Bones' moves to Fridays in November, and the much buzzed-about '24' revival '24: Live Another Day' has a semi-official premiere date set for May 2014.
The FOX network hasn't had many breakout success in the 2012-2013 season, perhaps apart from the continual buzz of 'The Following,' but they're still nowhere near as stagnant as NBC. Accordingly, not much about FOX's weekday lineup will change going into the 2013-2014 season, as the network has offiically given renewal orders to 'The Following,' 'New Girl,' 'Raising Hope' and 'The Mindy Project.' Find out what FOX has to say of its big news inside!
We may not always traffic in the circles of 'Raising Hope,' but when characters are tearing up the roads at 88 miles per hour in a DeLorean while Christopher Lloyd looks on incredulously, you can bet we're going to keep up. This Tuesday's all-new 'Raising Hope' episode "Credit Where Credit Is Due" will feature legendary 'Back to the Future' star Lloyd as an unscrupulous bank representative who stands in the Chance family's way, but how does a DeLorean get in the mix? Find out the latest from 'Raising Hope' inside!
We've reached that crucial time of the year in which networks evaluate how freshman series perform, and make decisions on how to go forward. FOX in particular has been fairly generous with its series, awarding additional episodes to 'The Mindy Project' and scripts for 'Ben and Kate,' but now we've learned that 'New Girl' and 'Raising Hope' will also get additional episodes! Meanwhile, what fate has The CW given to 'Beauty and the Beast' or 'Emily Owens M.D.?'
Great Scott! 1.21 jigowatts! Additional exclamations! We may not keep up with FOX's thriving family comedy 'Raising Hope' all that often, but when 'Back to the Future' gets thrown into the mix, you can bet we're gonna see some serious sh*t. Not only that, but it seems Doc Brown himself Christopher Lloyd will guest star on the episode to get in on the fun! But where (or when) could 'Raising Hope' go with a 'Back to the Future' episode, and who could Lloyd play if not himself?
Not that any of them were in any real danger of facing down cancellation, but it's always nice to breathe a sigh of relief when our favorite FOX shows secure renewals for an additional season. Then again, only some were lucky enough for the honor, so where's my 'Fringe' renewal news, FOX? We're dyin', here!
