A literary phenomenon we can get behind without any shirtless vampires, werewolves or BDSM, Starz's forthcoming 'Outlander' TV series adaptation from 'Battlestar Galctica' creator Ron Moore opened the floodgates this past weekend, releasing its first trailer and several new photos for fans of Diana Gabaldon's books to salivate over. Plus, is a second season already ordered?
For as much as we still miss the days of 'Spartacus,' the many goodies to emerge from the ongoing New York Comic-Con have seen Starz giving rise to two new trailers; not only do we have our best look yet at Michael Bay pirate drama 'Black Sails,' but also a new full-length trailer for 'Da Vinci's Demons' season 2!
This life affords us some unusual headlines in our inboxes, from spending Comic-Con nights in a 'Star Wars' dog cantina to entrepreneurs that can't spell the world "tweet," but suffice to say, LeBron James starting a Starz sitcom got our attention. The controversial Miami Heat star has partnered with a famous 'Cosby Show' producer for a new half-hour comedy on Starz, the details of which are too surprising and strange to ignore.
The recent cancellation of Starz's 'Magic City' and rumors swirling about 'The White Queen''s impending demise may put the premium cable network in something of a bind, but rapper 50 Cent will soon flex his 'Power' behind the camera. The network's upcoming Curtis Jackson-produced drama has officially cast its leading man in 'Kick-Ass' star Omari Hardwick, putting to rest talk that 50 himself might take the role.
Starz's epic 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' may have come to its bloody and sandy end this past year, but we're not saying our farewells just yet. The complete three-disc Blu-ray and DVD release of 'Spartacus: War of the Damned -- The Complete Third Season' will hit stores September 3, with an option to pre-book now, and we've got an exclusive look at the cast and crew giving a "Bloody Farewell" to fans of the legendary drama.
Some weeks ago we heard our first confirmation and casting of Starz's upcoming Ron Moore-helmed adaptation of 'Outlander,' casting Sam Heughan in the series lead role that brings Dianna Gabaldon's best-selling novels to life. Now, the Starz production has doubled-down on a dose of 'Game of Thrones,' adding HBO star Tobias Menzies in a dual role for the upcoming production.
The magic has finally run out. Much like its other acclaimed, but low-rated two-season drama 'Boss,' premium cable network Starz has officially opted not to renew its 1960s Jeffrey Dean Morgan crime drama 'Magic City.' The second season, and ultimately series finale will air this coming Friday night.
Among some of the more direct news to come out of Starz' TCA press tour panel, including an exceptionally early renewal for Michael Bay pirate drama 'Black Sails,' the premium cable network offered up a few updates on some of its more skeptical properties. 'Spartacus' creator Steven S. DeKnight's 'Halo' meets 'Band of Brothers' project 'Incursion' remains very much in play, though 'Boss' and 'Magic City' fans have a bitter pill to swallow.
Seeing as pirates tend to take what they want without fear of reproach, it should come as little surprise that Starz's forthcoming 'Treasure Island' prequel 'Black Sails' has already pilfered itself a second season, a full five months before the pilot premiere even airs to the general public. Still, will the Michael Bay-produced series live up to its promise?
