'Buffy' Creator Joss Whedon Wraps Secret Movie Starring Nathan Fillion, Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 24th 2011 7:15AM
Joss WhedonIf you've ever wondered what 'Castle' star Nathan Fillion does on his days off, wonder no more. He apparently makes movies in secret with his erstwhile 'Firefly' boss, Joss Whedon.

According to 'The Wrap,' Whedon adapted, cast and filmed a new indie version of William Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing' this summer without anyone finding out until after it was finished.

A website went up Sunday night announcing that principal photography has been completed on the guerrilla filmmaking project, which is lightheartedly described as "A Film by Joss Whedon Based on a Play."

The cast is a veritable smorgasbord of Whedon faves: As well as Fillion there's Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof from 'Angel' and 'Dollhouse,' and Sean Maher ('Firefly'). Although it could all be an elaborate hoax, we're already loving the idea of Acker and Denisof re-teaming to tackle the roles of reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick.

'Everwood' Cast: Where Are They Now?

by Chris Harnick, posted Jun 22nd 2010 4:00PM
Everwood'Everwood' was one of the WB's most beloved family dramas. The series followed Dr. Andy Brown and his two kids, Ephram and Delia, as they adjusted to their life in Everwood, a small Colorado hamlet, after the death of Julia Brown. To honor his wife's wishes, Dr. Brown left his high-profile medical career and transplanted his kids from New York City to Everwood.

The series ran for four years; it met its end when WB/UPN merged in 2006. When word came of the cancellation, 'Everwood' fans rallied to save their show and erected a Ferris wheel in Los Angeles to mimic the series finale.

'Everwood' has been slowly released on DVD. The most recent set, season 3, hit shelves on June 15, five years after it aired. Tell me I'm not alone in 'Everwood' nostalgia and join me for a return to the sleepy Colorado town with this "Where Are They Now?" (Cue the swelling piano and violin cords of the theme song.)

Heartland: The Places You'll Go

by Brett Love, posted Jul 18th 2007 7:00AM
Treat Williams and Kari Matchett(S01E05) The preview for Heartland that ran during The Closer said it was a can't miss episode. To be honest, I have no idea what they were on about. There wasn't anything particularly shocking, or interesting, nor any big revelations about any of the characters. It was, for the most part, just like every other episode has been. That is, somewhat disjointed with too little focus on the main characters.

And with this episode, I think they finally lost me. The promise that I saw in the premiere hasn't turned into a show that I am going to watch every week. Add in the fact that my Monday TV schedule is already pretty busy with Inside Nextel Cup, The Closer, Big Love, Hell's Kitchen, and the upcoming Saving Grace, and there just isn't enough room for Heartland. So, I'm checking out of St. Judes, and this will be my last post on the show.

Heartland: Mother & Child Reunion

by Brett Love, posted Jul 10th 2007 12:19PM
heartland - treat williams, kerry matchett(S01E04) This week we finally got the big clash between Nathaniel and Jonas that has been coming since Jonas left Stanford to return to St. Jude. Unfortunately, it is still such a one-sided relationship that there wasn't a lot to the clash. It came down to Nathaniel jerking Jonas around while Jonas had no recourse other than to beg and plead.

The decision that Nathaniel was struggling with regarding the fetal uterine transplant was interesting. Certainly the dangers and risks of experimental surgery are nothing new to him, as evidenced by the Neubacher heart for baby Maya. It's a tricky bit of business though when the guy who blew up his marriage by cheating on his wife, and then cheats on his new girlfriend with the ex-wife, starts pulling out the morality card.

Heartland: Picking Up Little Things

by Brett Love, posted Jul 3rd 2007 4:00PM
treat williams - heartland(S01E03) The folks over at St. Jude's aren't doing a lot to assuage my concerns about the show becoming too repetitive. Three episodes is still too early to say this is how it is going to be, but I'm starting to worry. The stories and conflicts that were put in play from the first episode seem to be getting little play as we focus on the cases of the week. These aren't bad stories, but I'm far more interested in the main characters that we see each week.

While that is something to keep an eye on, we did get two interesting cases to look at this week. First, heart transplant patient Andrew Wyles (K'sun Ray). As they talked about how Andrew's treatment wasn't working whenever he left the hospital I thought it could go one of two ways. Either he was making himself sick, or it was Munchausen by proxy and his grandmother was doing it. I was leaning toward the grandmother until we actually met her. She didn't come across as the type to be behind it, which made it clear that Andrew was a very troubled boy.

TNT moves Heartland to 8pm

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 27th 2007 4:01PM

Heartland

I'm not sure if this means that TNT doesn't have any faith in the show or if they have a lot of faith in the show. I sense the former.

The network has announced that they are moving the new Treat Williams medical drama Heartland from the cushy post-Closer spot at 10pm on Mondays to 8pm. That means it won't have a strong lead-in (The Closer is doing great in the ratings) and will have to kick off the night on its own. Heartland isn't exactly a hit with critics.

What's going in the 10pm slot? Glad you asked! It's Saving Grace, a new show starring Holly Hunter as an alcoholic cop who gets help from an angel after she causes an accident.

Heartland: I Make Myself Into Something New

by Brett Love, posted Jun 26th 2007 9:00AM
Rockmond Dunbar(S01E02) With Nathaniel taking over for Bart as the Chief of Staff at St. Jude, his old position is available. This week we learn that it has been filled by one Dr. Tom Jonas (Rockmond Dunbar). I was curious to see how this would go because this is a much different character than C-Note from Prison Break. Give some credit to Dunbar. I was on board with him as Jonas right away.

It was good, but not what I was expecting. Based on the previews I expected there to be more animosity between Nathaniel and Tom. There was a bit of that as they disagreed over the treatment of Gilliam, but by the end of the episode they were joking with each other so it looks like the writers are going in a different direction.

Heartland: Pilot (series premiere)

Heartland, Morena Baccarin, Treat Williams, Kari Matchett

(S01E01) I was curious to get a look at this show as soon as I heard about it. If you were even the most casual fan of Everwood, the premise had to sound some bells. Treat Williams as a brilliant surgeon who struggles to juggle all of the balls in his personal life. That's a thumbnail sketch, but it's one that fits both Nathaniel Grant and Andy Brown very well.

TNT adds miniseries and two new series

holly hunterAs Brett mentioned last December, TNT has two new series planned: Heartland, starring Treat Williams; and Saving Grace, starring Holly Hunter (the series was originally called Grace). In Heartland, Williams plays a brilliant heart transplant surgeon who struggles with his family life. Hunter plays a police detective who's visited by an angel.

TNT dumps Saved, adds two new shows

by Brett Love, posted Dec 13th 2006 12:41PM
Holly HunterWhile Saved garnered quite a few good reviews, and some respectable ratings, it's no The Closer. And apparently the press and numbers weren't enough to convince TNT that there should be a second season of the Tom Everett Scott drama. Instead, the network is looking to bring two different pilots to series.

Holly Hunter stars in Grace as an Oklahoma City police detective who is visited by an angel and given a chance to redeem her life. It also stars Tom Irwin (Related), and Laura San Giacomo (Just Shoot Me). I'll watch anything with Holly Hunter, or Laura San Giacomo, in it at least once, so I plan to tune in when this show takes off. But based just on the tag line, my expectations are low.

Also on the schedule is Heartland. This one stars Treat Williams as the brilliant surgeon, Nathaniel Grant. His dedication to his work causes problems with his health and his relationships. Now, if you are thinking, "Hey, that sounds a whole lot like Everwood." then you and I are on the same page. The show even stars Gage Golightly as his daughter Thea, who doesn't seem so far removed from Delia. Still, Treat Williams is always worth a look. And it has the bonus of Morena Baccarin (Firefly) as well. The show is currently planned to follow The Closer.

Waiting for more Everwood DVDs? Don't hold your breath!

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 7th 2006 2:40PM
EverwoodI seem to be the Everwood guy around here.

For you devoted fans who bought the first season set and have been wondering when the other seasons are going to be released on DVD, here's your answer: they won't be. Warner Brothers says that because of the high costs (and low sales of the set that was released), they won't be releasing any other seasons on DVD.

Of course, if any of you want to go crazy and buy a bunch of copies of the first set so they change their minds, go for it.

For the last time, Everwood is not coming back!

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 2nd 2006 2:20PM
EverwoodI watched Everwood its first season, and found it to be quite good. Very well acted and sincere and it had a different feel than other WB type teen dramas (for one thing, it wasn't really a teen drama - it focused on the adults as much as the kids), and even though I lost track of the show after that first year, I was sad to see it go. There was a glimmer of hope that the show might get a 7th Heaven-like last minute renewal last week, but now it looks like it's gone for good.

But Ausiello says you should keep going with your "Save Everwood" campaigns.
