'Breaking Bad' Off the Air Until July 2011: Online Mini-Episodes Planned

by Ryan McKee, posted Aug 5th 2010 9:40AM
'Breaking Bad's' Bryan Cranston could pull a three-peat with an Emmy win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama on Aug. 29, but there won't be a four-peat: The show will not premiere its fourth season until July 2011, more than a full year after June's conclusion of season 3. That means the show will not be eligible for next year's Emmy Awards.

"I think what AMC is thinking here is there will be less competition for us -- particularly from the broadcast networks -- if we launch our season during the summer than if we come back again like we did this time in March," Cranston told Deadline.

ABC Soaps Launch 'What If' Web Series

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 12th 2010 12:00PM
susan_lucci_all_my_children_abcHave you ever longed to see a mash-up of your favorite soap characters? ABC Daytime has heard your wish and made it come true.

The network has taken stars from all three of its daytime dramas -- 'All My Children,' 'General Hospital' and 'One Life to Live' -- and put them to work in original webisodes that allow them to play their characters crossing over into an alternate reality where they can interact with characters from other shows.

That means Llanview and Port Charles and Pine Valley citizens can all exist in the same world and cross paths. 'AMC's' Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) can have a run in with 'GH's' Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), for instance, while 'OLTL's' Todd Manning (Trevor St. John) meets nerdy computer genius Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) from 'GH.' And gorgeous 'AMC' hunk Ryan Lavery (Cameron Mathison) flirts shamelessly with 'GH's' Carly Jacks (Laura Wright).

AnnaLynne McCord Talks 'Dial Star,' '90210' and Celebrity Impersonators

by Chris Harnick, posted Jun 8th 2010 11:00AM
AnnaLynne McCord in Dial*AnnaLynne McCord has a beef with celebrity impersonators. She also likes to be on the forefront of new and emerging forms of entertainment, so when the 'Dial Star' web series opportunity was presented to her, she said she was very intrigued.

In the AT&T and NBC Universal Web series that will be available across mobile and Internet platforms starting June 8, McCord plays herself and is also an executive producer on the project that finds her cell phone falling into the hands of an aspiring actress. The young actress, Celia, suddenly has all sorts of doors start to open for her because she has McCord's phone and some private information that gets her into swanky parties and in front of the right industry people.

The project struck close to home for McCord. She said she has dozens of impersonators online and has even been verbally attacked by one. The '90210' starlet chatted with TV Squad on all things 'Dial Star,' how she reclaims her privacy amidst the watching eye of the paparazzi, her film work and of course what's coming up for her character in Beverly Hills, Naomi.

Community, Webisodes, Senior Chang, Chicken FingersHave you been waiting impatiently for 'Community' to come back? Well, the wait is over, my friends, because tonight at 8PM ET on NBC, there's a brand new episode with the titillating title, 'Contemporary American Poultry.'

It's a devastating tragedy when a chicken finger shortage grips Greendale Community College, but Jeff and Troy are on the job, which causes Britta to think about the causes she currently supports.

But, wait! If you just can't bear the thought of waiting until tonight to get your 'Community' fix, a couple of webisodes are currently online that are pretty freakin' funny.

Gil Gerard and Erin Grey Are Sorta Back on 'Buck Rogers'

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 6th 2010 1:00PM
Buck Rogers in the 25th CenturySome of you really old folks like me might remember a science fiction series of the late 70's/early 80's called 'Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.' The stars were Gil Gerard as Buck and Erin Grey as Wilma Deering.

Well, they're back and this time they're Mr. and Mrs. Rogers. In a webisode series produced by James Cawley, who also did the 'Star Trek' Phase II web series. Bobby Rice stars as the young Buck. A scene for the series was released on YouTube and in it, Buck is arguing with his parents about participating in World War I.

Based on the clip, this series seems more of an homage to the previous versions of the character than the one Gil Gerard starred in. It certainly adds an interesting wrinkle by having someone from our past trapped in our future.

However the series is set, it will likely be above and beyond SyFy's craptacular 'Flash Gordon' series.

Video is after the jump.

Top TV Stories of 2009: The continued rise of online video

When Neil Patrick Harris hosted the Emmys, Dr. Horrible conveniently invaded for a moment, spreading webseries fear throughout the TV industry audience. It was a funny bit, serving mainly as a vehicle for some jokes about buffering and tiny screen sizes. Hopefully that made the TV people feel better, if only for a little while, because online video is showing no signs of stopping.

Is Canada's best science fiction TV show not on TV?

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Nov 11th 2009 1:02PM
Riese is using online marketing to emerge as Canadian's hottest sci-fi show.There are plenty of sci-fi TV shows made up in Canada. The Stargate series comes out of Vancouver -- as does Fringe. There's a proud ongoing fantasy tradition deeply rooted up there.

But, the city's local newspaper insists the best show in production in Canada's Pacific Southwest isn't on broadcast TV. It's a web series called Riese. The Steampunk-themed action series is set in another time in the kingdom of Eleysia. The title character (Christine Chatelain) battles through the countryside with a wolf avenging the death of her family.

She's fighting off a crazed, fundamentalist religious group -- the Sect. So, you can set your watch by how long the tunnel-vision crew over at Big Hollywood jumps on Riese as some sort of attack on traditional religion. (It's not.)

WIll you watch Peter Petrelli's geek battle show?

by Mike Moody, posted May 4th 2009 3:00PM
heroes petrellis nbcHere's a question for the ages: Who would win in a real fight: Peter or Nathan Petrelli? Could the power-nabbing Peter kick Nathan's high-flying ass in a no-holds-barred brawl? Or would the older, slimier Nathan have the advantage?

It's a tough call. I'd have to vote for WHO THE FRAK CARES?!

But Peter Petrelli himself, Milo Ventimiglia, hopes that people care about such hypothetical battles. In his latest attempt to corner the geek market, the Heroes star is co-producing Ultradome, a web series "where passionate fanboys settle hypothetical disputes in a special effects showdown."

Expect to see such fanboys, including Ventimiglia, duke it out on the web series in scripted – yep, scripted – fights to settle stuff like: Which franchise is cooler, Star Wars or The Lord of the Rings, or is Han Solo tougher than Indiana Jones?

Need a laugh? Watch the new Heroes web series

by Mike Moody, posted Apr 21st 2009 11:34AM
heroes nowhere manAnd yes, you'll be laughing at it, not with it. Mostly because it's awfully unoriginal, unfunny, and it revolves around two of the most useless characters in the Heroes universe -- Eric Doyle (aka "The Puppetmaster"), and that d-bag who used to be HRG's boss at Copy Kingdom (who reminds you that he used to be the boss at Copy Kingdom two seconds after he shows up).

OK, maybe someone could make a good web series about The Puppetmaster (David H. Lawrence XVII is a good actor), but this ain't it. The five-and-a half minute opener, which premiered Monday, is mostly laughably bad, forgettable and uninspired.

Nowhere Man, that's what they call it, chronicles Doyle's attempt to go straight and work an office job. Copy Kingdom guy is his sleazy jerk boss who just happens to be dating the object of his affection.

Finally! We find out what Oscar is so mad about - VIDEO

by Kona Gallagher, posted Dec 12th 2008 1:01PM
office webisode
The facts are these: In The Office webisodes that have been airing over the past couple of weeks, Oscar has been pissed. He showed up to work and had an outburst on his cell phone in front of everyone. It sounded like a lovers' quarrel, but Oscar refused to tell anyone what he was so angry about.

Oscar has always seemed like one of the more intelligent, reasonable Dunder-Mifflin employees, so I find it completely mind-boggling that he thinks he can scream at someone in the middle of his crowded office, not tell anyone what the deal was, and expect them to respect his privacy. He works in an office. These people have nothing else going on in their lives.

In this week's webisode, the Dunder-Mifflin employees beat it out of him and we finally find out what the deal is with Oscar's outburst.

Screw it. I'll give Jimmy Fallon the benefit of the doubt - VIDEO

by Kona Gallagher, posted Dec 10th 2008 7:03PM
jimmy fallonEver since Jimmy Fallon was named Conan O'Brien's successor in a surprise move by NBC, the SNL alum has faced a ton of criticism. Just about everything I've heard has been along the lines of, "WTF, NBC?" and Jimmy Fallon sucks." It's easy to knock Jimmy Fallon. He's twitchy, he couldn't keep a straight face during an SNL skit to save his life, and his big post-SNL career move? Freakin' Taxi.

Yes, there's a lot of ways to make fun of Jimmy Fallon, and as he proves in his second webisode, he hears you loud and clear. He knows you think he's a douchebag who doesn't deserve the job, but that's not going to stop him from trying to leave his mark on late night. So maybe it's just the part of me that cringes at schoolyard bullying, but whatever. I'm going to give Jimmy Fallon the benefit of the doubt.

Jimmy Fallon gears up for late night gig

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 6th 2008 9:29AM
Jimmy FallonNext year marks a changing of the guard for Conan O'Brien from Late Night to The Tonight Show. It'll be an easy transition for the fair-skinned one since he's already got a recipe for success: a die-hard audience, smart and inventive writers and puppets that curse.

The real challenge will be for Jimmy Fallon, Conan's Late Night successor, who hasn't had much TV time since he left Saturday Night Live for a movie career that made Chevy Chase's lineup look Lawrence Olivier-ian.

Variety reports that Fallon will first test the airwaves' waters instead of doing a full-blown cannonball by starring in some "webisodes" on NBC.com starting Monday.
