It's been forever and a day since we've heard about any real momentum behind the proposed 'Halo' TV series under Stephen Spielberg, which originally had been set as the first of Microsoft Xbox's original content, and now we may know why. A new report suggests the 'Halo' TV series might land on Showtime instead, as part of a unique deal that has taken time to put together.
Earlier this week Showtime was generous enough to show us the entire pilot for forthcoming "psychosexual" monster mash 'Penny Dreadful,' but why stop there? In addition to watching the premiere, get a brand new look at the sexy, supernatural evil hiding in the 19th century, with another fresh trailer for Showtime's 'Penny Dreadful'!
We were already well enamored with Showtime's 'Masters of Sex' to begin with, let alone that 'Breaking Bad' star Betsy Brandt joined the season 2 cast, while the newest run bumped up to a summer premiere. Now, the universally beloved Sarah Silverman boards 'Masters of Sex' season 2 in a recurring role, but who will the comedian portray?
We've been eager for a look at Showtime's forthcoming "psychosexual" horror-drama 'Penny Dreadful' before its May 11 premiere, and the wait is over. Watch Josh Hartnett and '300: Rise of an Empire' star Eva Green take on the likes of vampires, circus freaks and Dr. Frankenstein in the first full premiere episode of Showtime's 'Penny Dreadful' right now!
Sure, much of the attention for Sunday TV turned to the latest 'Game of Thrones' wedding disaster and the final season premiere for 'Mad Men,' but soon Showtime will return to steal a bit of spotlight back this summer. Accordingly, the new summer Sunday team of 'Masters of Sex' and 'Ray Donovan' revealed their first bits of season 2 footage in a scandalous new trailer.
Last season's 'Homeland' finale, "The Star," understandably shot things up for a fresh start in season 4, but so far we'd only gotten vague hints as to where we'd pick up with Carrie Mathison (Emmy winner Claire Danes) on assignment. Now, Showtime reveals that production will head to South Africa for season 4, even if Carrie & co. face a different mission in another dangerous part of the world.
Just yesterday we were bemoaning that 'Masters of Sex' season 2 wouldn't arrive on Showtime until likely September, but the premium cable network has surprised us with an early climax (come on, we had to) for its period sexuality drama. 'Masters of Sex' will partner with 'Ray Donovan' season 2 this summer, leaving 'Homeland' season 4 to make some new friends this coming fall.
It's been a good few months since we've heard anything on the subject of 'Homeland' season 4, but considering its shocking end and the subsequent cast demotions, Showtime's sometime-acclaimed counter-terrorism drama has a few holes to fill. Enter season 3 guest star Nazanin Boniadi, who has officially ascended the ranks of series regular in 'Homeland' season 4
This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, given that Showtime's most quietly-continuing 'Episodes' had already been granted an additional season, but good news all the same: Emmy Rossum-William H. Macy family drama 'Shameless' will officially return for a fifth season in 2015, as the Don Cheadle- and Kristen Bell-starring 'House of Lies' will return for its fourth.
