I was just looking at the pages for DM and DM2 on Wikipedia, and it said that The Minions are getting their own movie.

Ah, thank you. I was hoping it was Gina Torres' homeworld. I think I'll look into it, though.

Time traveling FBI agent series at ABC

Feature director Brett Ratner and Law & Order veteran Barry Schindel have teamed for Tomorrow, a drama project at ABC financed by Reliance’s Georgeville Television, the independent TV studio formed last spring by Motion Picture Capital’s Leon Clarance and Deepak Nayar and producer Marc Rosen.

Like all Georgeville projects, Tomorrow, now in development, has a script-to-series commitment, meaning that if ABC likes the script it would trigger a 13-episode series order. Created and written by Katherine Lindberg and Ted Cyr, Tomorrow is a high-concept law enforcement procedural about an FBI agent who gets trapped in a time travel scenario. Ratner, who is set to direct, and Schindel, who serves as showrunner, executive produce with Lindberg, Cyr and Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar and Nicole Romano.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

And The Thread bobs to the top...maybe we should have the mods change the title to 2013?

Bloodline gets pilot order at NBC.

Bloodline, which reflects Graziano’s love of pulp, graphic novels and ancient mythology, is a contemporary pulp action thriller in the vein of Kill Bill. Set against the backdrop of modern suburbia, it follows the story of an orphaned young girl, Bird Benson, who, due to an accident of birth, is caught in the epic struggle between two warring families of mercenaries and killers. Mentored by a mysterious Chinese man, Bird must accept the quest to find and defeat her mother in mortal combat if she is ever to lead a normal life.
Wayward Pines miniseries in contention at FOX.

Based on the best-selling novel Pines by Blake Crouch, Wayward Pines is an intense, mind-bending thriller evocative of the classic cult hit Twin Peaks. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, on a mission to find two missing federal agents. But instead of answers, Ethan’s investigation only turns up more questions. What’s wrong with Wayward Pines? Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan further from the life he knew, from the husband and father he was, until he must face the terrifying reality that he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive.
However if FOX can only do one miniseries in 2014, I'm rooting for Blood Brothers, a Civil War epic that sounds like a remake of North & South and despite the title, apparently involves no vampires. And my hunch is, that topic would do better for FOX. The market for supernatural horror is getting pretty glutted.

All of those have potential.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

I think Bloodlines has been listed here before. Wayward Pines does sound derivative of Twin Peaks, but that's not necessarily bad-- it's really not a concept that has been sucked as dry as so many others.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

Another genre series in a historical setting, this time from Showtime:

The psychosexual horror project, titled Penny Dreadful, has received a series commitment, with production eyed to begin in London in the second half of 2013. The show will feature some of horror literature’s most famous characters – including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and Dracula – as they become embroiled in Victorian London.
Ooooh "psychosexual."

CBS schedules Under the Dome miniseries for summer:

The 13-episode Under the Dome, set in a small town suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome, will open Monday, June 24 and will air in the Monday 10 PM slot.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Penny Dreadful does sound like it has possibilities. Nice title, too-- Penny Dreadfuls were the precursors to the Pulps. Also, we have a local "Horror Host" here down in Bridgewater who uses that name-- nice publicity for her.

Take that stick out of your ass and you'll have an easier life.

Stephen King had been sitting on the idea for decades, but it wasn't until two years after the Simpsons movie that he turned it into something worth showing (probably because he was too busy re-releasing his old novels under a new name).
