These days, we’re more used to Sir Patrick Stewart classing up movie screens, or as a voice in Seth MacFarlane’s corner, but the erstwhile Captain Picard is returning to TV full-time as a coke-sniffing cable news pundit transplanted to America. Watch Patrick Steward give some Blunt Talk in the first trailer for Starz’s new MacFarlane-produced comedy!

Just when you thought the Ash vs Evil Dead reunion of Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi offered enough Starz for one lifetime, another major Raimi reunion makes things even groovier. Xena herself, Lucy Lawless will join the Evil Dead TV series in a major role, but will she prove friend or foe?
We haven’t heard very much of Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell’s ‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead’ Starz revival since its inception, but the groovy one-time S-Mart stockboy won’t be alone in his new fight. Two new stars have joined the battle of ‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead,’ and both of them will hail to the king, baby.
Year after year, the same-old 'Evil Dead' sequel and remake rumors get the chainsaw gears grinding from the likes of Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi, but nothing groovy ever comes of it. Well hail to the king, baby, as the 'Evil Dead' franchise is alive and well on Starz, with Campbell to headline a new 'Ash Vs. Evil Dead' series in 2015, and Sam Raimi returning to direct!
It's a tale as old as TV, that the cancellation of one series leads to speculation of a cinematic return, or a new outlet to continue the story. Starz's cancelled 'Magic City' might be the craziest example we've heard yet, however, returning the 1960's Jeffrey Dean Morgan Miami crime drama to the big screen, and adding the likes of Bruce Willis and Bill Murray!
Starz's adapted 'Outlander' series garnered considerable interest from fans of Diana Gabaldon's best-selling novels well before the series formally premiered, and it seems the cable network isn't waiting on its good fortune to greenlight another season. "Book Two" is officially a go for 'Outlander,' stretching the time-traveling romance into another season to come in 2015.
Starz's 'Outlander' has drawn a considerable amount of buzz toward its impending premiere, particularly with the recent Comic-Con 2014 presence teasing viewers of its sweeping adaptation. Now, the series premiere itself has fallen through time to make its way online a full week early, and you can watch its uncut entirety right now!
Fans of Diana Gabaldon's steamy sci-fi romance 'Outlander' have been eagerly anticipating the Starz adaptation due to premiere on August 9, but now the Ronald Moore drama will come a bit earlier than expected. And speaking of adult reading material, find out how close we came to having the '50 Shades of Grey' film instead tied up as a Starz TV series!
A few weeks ago we learned the unfortunate reasoning behind HBO's decision to pass on the long-gestating adaptation of Neil Gaiman's 'American Gods,' somewhat dashing hope the series might ever get made. Now, the 'American Gods' have found new life under development from Starz, with 'Hannibal' creator Bryan Fuller and 'Heroes'' Michael Green at the helm.
We haven't made very much of Starz's recently-premiered and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson-produced gangster drama 'Power,' but as we've come to expect from the cable network, Starz isn't waiting very long to double down. Following a modest premiere, Starz has officially greenlit 'Power' for a second season to air in 2015, and with an expanded order at that.
