It's that time of year again, when the major networks begin picking up pilots and making final decisions on struggling series. FOX and NBC have already greenlit a number of new shows and taken others to the woodshed, but some of FOX's latest may surprise you: Seth MacFarlane's controversial 'Dads' is no more, along with the critically-adored 'Enlisted,' Rake,' and Christopher Meloni's 'Surviving Jack.'
FOX got a hefty amount of business taken care of today, not the least of which will surely have the internet talking, as Seth MacFarlane's controversial 'Dads' has been given a full season order to continue its equal opportunity offending. Meanwhile, the network has also plotted 'The Following's January premiere to coincide with the 'Sleepy Hollow' finale, a spring break for 'Glee' and more!
Released in 1990 and based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, 'It' was a special three-part TV miniseries event. The story follows a group of outcast kids and self-proclaimed losers who fight an evil demon posing as a child-killing clown. Thirty years later, the evil demon clown has returned to seek vengeance, bringing these former friends back together again under unfortunate circumstances. Twenty-three years after the series' initial debut, we take a look back at this awesome ensemble cast and see what they're up to now.
While these days seem to bring a new 'Star Wars: Episode 7' casting rumor every other day, it was only a few months ago that Lucasfilm had planned to roll out several new offerings, including 'Robot Chicken' creator Seth Green's 'Star Wars: Detours.' The announcement of new films and the Disney takeover led to shelving the comedic take on 'Star Wars' mythology, but how far into production had the series gotten, and is there a chance we'll ever see it again?
In 'Sexy Evil Genius,' Seth Green leads a group of jilted lovers who have gathered at a local bar to commiserate over the same woman – Nikki (Katee Sackhoff), a likely-crazy young woman who’s now engaged to the lawyer who helped her secure release from a mental institution. If this doesn’t sound like the most light-hearted, uplifting story you’ve ever heard, consider the context in which it was made: screenwriter Scott Lew managed to score an all-star cast and crew to bring it to life, even as ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) ravaged his body. And on the just-released DVD, Lew gets to explain how he conceived the film – with a little help from Green and company.
We spoke with Seth Green and director Shawn Piller earlier this week about Sexy Evil Genius. Both collaborators talked about why they first took on the film as an acting challenge, and then explained how it became personally important to get Scott Lew’s story told – not just the one in the screenplay, but the one unfolding in his real life.
The network pickups of the last few days might have dominated the news, but that hasn't made us any less excited for Adult Swim's new offerings in the coming year. In addition to a pickup for 'Community' creator Dan Harmon's new series 'Rick and Morty,' Adult Swim has announced a new 'Robot Chicken' DC Comics special sequel, and an hour-long 'Metalocalypse' special amid their new offerings. Get the full list of Adult Swim arrivals inside!
Recent Oscars host and animation magnate Seth MacFarlane might be branching out into live-action TV, but not everything about the 'Ted' creator's latest work will feel unfamiliar. After years of voicing Chris Griffin on MacFarlane's FOX flagship 'Family Guy' and taking playful potshots at one another with regard to 'Robot Chicken,' Seth Green has officially joined the cast of MacFarlane's upcoming live-action sitcom 'Dads.' Find out what brings the Seths together inside!
'How I Met Your Mother' has featured some strongly meta casting in the past eight years, but little that warmed our hearts as much as seeing former 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' couple Seth Green and Alyson Hannigan reunited for Monday's upcoming episode "The Final Page." We saw a picture of the reunion earlier, but are you ready to see Willow and Oz together again for real? Check out the latest clip!
'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and even 'How I Met Your Mother' fans were recently elated to hear that the series would re-unite star Alyson Hannigan with two-time on-screen love interest Seth Green for an upcoming installment of the show's (likely) swan song season. The initial announcement gave a few details of Green's role as a forgotten friend of Marshall and Lily from their college days, but how would you like to see the pair officially re-united on the set?
