They join previously announced leads Bill Paxton (Randall McCoy) and Kevin Costner (Anse Hatfield) in the period piece, which follows the bloody 13-year feud between the Hatfield and McCoy families.

Big plans for 60th Emmy broadcast ... as long as there's no strike

Ken EhrlichFor Ken Erhlich, executive producer of the Emmy broadcast, the goal is clear. "The war cry is always, 'What are we going to do and how are we going to make it better?' We did some inventive things, we changed it up, we understand that this is the industry's big night. This means something and we can't trivialize it, but we certainly can have some fun with it." He told me that last year, prior to the Emmy-in-the-round broadcast, a memorable -- and successful show.

In 2008, the decisions about the 60th anniversary Emmys are still in the works for the September LA broadcast, but one decision has already been made. It won't be in the round. While it looked good on air, the industry didn't like it. "People loved it at home. It had a great look, but you know, you try things, you want to bring something fresh to the show."

A change is gonna come for 24

by Paul Goebel, posted May 2nd 2007 8:40PM

Is this the kind of change 24 fans want?In a recent interview, producer/writer Howard Gordon told the press that he has been dramatically affected by the criticism 24 has gotten from its fans. It would seem that the show is in for a big change and I, for one, don't like it.

I was discussing the show with some friends the other day and one of them was saying they think the show has gone too far. "I mean, how can Jack get released from torturous imprisonment and be ready to save the world without a break?" they asked. Quite frankly, I was offended.

Boothe says 24's creepy VP not misguided

Noah Daniels on 24 I'm sure I'm not the only one who's still reeling from the 24 love scene last week featuring Acting President Noah Daniels, and who's praying we don't see a romantic replay in hour 20.

In the meantime, Powers Boothe, who plays Daniels, defended the power-mad pol to TV Guide, saying that he doesn't think Daniels is "misguided." "You had a nuke go off in [California]," Boothe said, "and people are sitting around wringing their hands. He feels like he has to do something."

Deadwood movies won't air until 2008 at the earliest

DeadwoodYou know, it's been so long since I've seen the last episode of Deadwood that I'll have to go back and watch it again to prepare for the two movies that will end the western saga. I think the last scene showed Gerald McRaney on his way out of town, probably heading to Jericho, Kansas.

But there's no rush. According to this story at the Chicago Tribune, not only are the two movies not going to air until 2008 at the earliest, but (according to cast member W. Earl Brown), the stars of the show haven't even signed contracts to appear in the TV flicks. But creator David Milch said a couple of months that he is "committed" to finishing the movies.

24: 7:00pm -- 8:00pm

Noah Daniels on 24(S06E14) *Warning, spoilers from the recent episode ahead*

Jack Bauer must really be hurting, more so than ever before. More so than he was when he emerged from two years of being tortured by Chinese officials a mere 14 hours ago. Or during other seasons when he was tortured via any number of weapons or devices (though not by a cigar cutter . . . or plastic wrap).

For the second consecutive week, 24 viewers barely saw our boy Jack. He sustained rib injuries in the Russian consulate that caused internal bleeding, necessitating heavy bandages around his mid-section.(Though we did get glimpses of his severely scar-ridden upper torso.) When Jack was doing something other than groaning in pain, he was either close-talking with his sister-in-law, or perusing files from the CTU archives while an unmanned aircraft carrying a live nuke circled over California.

A double-dose of 24 in February

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 22nd 2007 11:05AM

When you think of the FOX network what's the first thing that comes to mind? Perhaps the fact that its been on the air for over 20 years now, or maybe that it's the home to The Simpsons. Yes, those things are certainly true. Yet, when I ponder about FOX the first thing that comes to mind is . . . Good Lord, they certainly know how to pimp their most popular shows!

Case in point is that small action-adventure program named 24. We already got two full nights of double episodes last week to kick off the season. Yet, the network isn't done shoving it down our throats giving fans more Jack. So, they have scheduled another two-hour event for Monday, February 12th. This, of course, is conveniently placed smack-dab in the middle of sweeps. The event will cover the hours between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. and co-stars Chad Lowe and Powers Boothe.

By the way, just because the network pimps its most popular shows to death doesn't mean they don't know what they're doing. The two-day, four-hour launch of 24 that premiered last week exceeded the fifth season premiere by 14 percent for all viewers.
