Gun violence in America was enough of an issue without USA frantically trying to schedule its Shooter adaptation around mass shootings, and it seems another rash of destruction has the network on edge. Following an already-delayed premiere, Shooter will now move to fall 2016 in deference to the Baton Rouge attacks, potentially even changing its title.
Crazily enough, it’s getting harder and harder to schedule violent TV in between mass shootings. Where weeks ago TNT opted to reschedule The Last Ship Season 3 over its depiction of a nightclub shooting, USA’s aptly-named Shooter will now hold off a week in deference to the Dallas sniper attack.
Marvel’s TV universe has plenty of balls to juggle for the moment, between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., its spinoff and side-project, as well as the Netflix Defenders, and it seems we may have another name in the mix. Ryan Phillippe has reportedly entered talks for a role in one of the new Netflix series, but might he be our Iron Fist?
It's ABC's turn at the Upfronts to premiere its newest offerings, and while earlier today we caught the full schedule for Fall 2014, the network has now premiered first looks at all trailers for its newest programming. Get a first look at Karen Gillan's 'My Fair Lady'-esque 'Selfie,' John Ridley's 'American Crime,' Spielberg alien drama 'The Whispers,' and even an update on Marvel's forthcoming 'Agent Carter' right here!
A lot of actors would like to move into directing but it's not the easiest transition to do. Jonathan Frakes spent hours on the set of 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' learning everything he could before directing an episode. Not too sure what Ryan Phillippe's training is, but he's going for it anyway and making his directorial debut in a new indie thriller.
