The 100 Greatest TV Shows of All Time

1

There’s never been a creative boom for TV like the one we are living through right now. Ever since The Sopranos changed the game at the turn of the century, we’ve been in a gold rush that gives no signs of slowing down. What better moment to look back and celebrate the greatest shows in the history of the art form?

So Rolling Stone Magazine undertook a major poll – actors, writers, producers, critics, showrunners. Legends like Carl Reiner and Garry Marshall, who sent us his ballot shortly before his death this summer. All shows from all eras were eligible; anybody could vote for whatever they felt passionate about, from the black-and-white rabbit-ears years to the binge-watching peak-TV era. The ratings didn’t matter – only quality. The voters have spoken – and, damn, did they have some fierce opinions. On this list you’ll find vintage classics and new favorites, ambitious psychodramas and stoner comedies, underrated cult gems ripe for rediscovery, cops and cartoons and vampire slayers. You’ll find the groundbreaking creations of yesteryear as well as today’s innovators. (There was nothing like Transparent or Orange Is the New Black or Game of Thrones a few years ago, but who could imagine this list without them?) The list is guaranteed to start plenty of loud arguments – but the beauty of TV is how it keeps giving us so much to argue about.

Check out the list HERE.

The Dark Tower TV Series Will Adapt Stephen King’s Wizard And Glass

1

In honor of Stephen King’s birthday, the makers of The Dark Tower film are unwrapping their plans for the saga’s companion TV series.

The movie — starring Idris Elba as the gunslinger Roland Deschain, and Matthew McConaughey as the menacing Man in Black — opens on Feb. 17 and explores the hero and villain’s opposing quests to reach an otherworldly tower that connects their apocalyptic realm with ours.

Ever since the film project was first proposed, it came packaged with an unusual idea: a spin-off TV show that would fill in the fantasy epic’s prodigious backstory.

Stephen King

Now, sources at production company MRC and the film’s executive producer and co-screenwriter, Akiva Goldsman, have revealed to Entertainment Weekly details about what they have planned for that series.

MRC has committed not just to making a pilot, but producing a full run of between 10 and 13 episodes, depending on how the scripts and story arcs develop. The Dark Tower show will begin shooting in 2017 with plans to premiere it in 2018, ideally around the time the film becomes available on cable or streaming services.

The bulk of the show will focus on the fourth book in the saga, Wizard and Glass, which told another tale of young Roland and his early tribulations. MRC created this map, overlayed with a quote from the book.

Trailer For 24X36: A Movie About Movie Posters

1

24×36 is a documentary by Kevin Burke that explores the birth, death and resurrection of illustrated movie poster art.

Through interviews with a number of key art personalities from the past 4 decades – 24×36 aims to answer the question – What happened to the illustrated movie poster? Where did it disappear to, and why?

In the mid 2000s, filling the void left behind by Hollywood’s abandonment of illustrated movie posters, independent artists and galleries began selling limited edition, screenprinted posters – a movement that has quickly exploded into a booming industry with prints selling out online in seconds, inspiring Hollywood studios to take notice of illustration in movie posters once more.

24X36: A Movie About Movie Posters is produced by Snowfort Pictures and Post No Joes Productions. The film will receive it’s world premiere at Fantastic Fest, which takes place at Austin, Texas’ Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar cinema from Sept. 22 to Sept. 29.

The official one-sheet poster for 24X36: A Movie About Movie Posters is a collaboration between five artists: Sara Deck, Paul Ainsworth, Joshua Budich, Gary Pullin, and the project’s art director, Matt Ryan Tobin.

Margot Robbie To Co-Produce Harley Quinn Spin-Off

1

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Margot Robbie has signed a first look deal with Warner Bros. Pictures to develop and produce projects for the studio, and among her projects already on the table is the previously-reported Harley Quinn spin-off film. With her new deal, Robbie won’t just star in the film but will also serve as a producer on the project through her LuckyChap Entertainment banner.

It was previously reported that the project was not being eyed as a “solo” Harley Quinn movie, but instead the film will feature a number of female DC characters, with the likes of Batgirl and the Birds of Prey reportedly also in the mix. The studio remains tight lipped about the project and is not confirming which characters will appear in the film, or who is even writing, though it is reportedly a female screenwriter.

Robbie herself was reportedly the springboard for the project, having fallen for the pantheon of DC’s female characters in her extensive research for the role of Harley Quinn. Robbie then brought on the writer to the project and it was promptly picked up by the studio for development.

The actress made her debut as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad on August 5, marking the feature film debut of the character. Karen Fukuhara also appeared in the film as Katana, a member of the Birds of Prey in the DC source material. The Birds of Prey are a mostly female superhero team whose ranks has included Oracle/Batgirl, Black Canary, Huntress, Catwoman, Hawkgirl, Power Girl, Poison Ivy, Vixen, and many more.
