BITTEN Season 2, while finished in Canada, is airing Friday nights on Syfy and I can’t turn away!  I’ve managed to stay spoiler free this year, and every new episodes brings something I’m not expecting.  To celebrate the US airing of the show, I spent some time chatting with Elena herself, Laura Vandervoort, about what’s different this season, what comes next, and why people should watch! Congrats on the success of the show.  The book is great, the show is

Reflecting on a great year with BETTER CALL SAUL’s Julie Ann Emery

bcs_s01_ep07_still05

I’ve been a fan of Julie Ann Emery for a long time, going back to one of my favorite one-season-wonders, LINE OF FIRE, on ABC. 2014/15 has been a big season for the former FBI Agent Jennifer Sampson, as she has found herself with great roles in FARGO (my favorite show from 2014) and this year’s phenomenal BETTER CALL SAUL. Julie Ann and I spent some time talking about building character, whether we’ll see Betsy Kettleman again, how she brought

Miles Brown talks BLACK-ISH, dancing, and joining the NBA

ANTHONY ANDERSON, TRACEE ELLIS ROSS, YARA SHAHIDI, MILES BROWN, LAURENCE FISHBURNE, MARCUS SCRIBNER, MARSAI MARTIN

It’s no surprise to anyone that’s talked to me this season that ABC’s BLACK-ISH has been a stand out comedy – I love everything about it, from top to bottom, including how well the family works together and how insanely funny the family’s four kids are.  I had the chance to talk with one of those Johnsons, Miles Brown, about what comes next on the show (can’t say much more than “laughter”), what comes next for him, and what athletic

Keith Powers previews SIN CITY SAINTS and FAKING IT S2b, plus what comes next for him!

If you’ve been watching the hilarious SIN CITY SAINTS on Yahoo Screen, starring Andrew Santino and Malin Akerman, you will recognize Keith Powers as LaDarius Pope, the Saints’ rookie point guard.  Or maybe you’ve been watching MTV’s FAKING IT, and recognize Keith as Theo, whose secret double life was exposed towards the end of Season 2A.  I was lucky enough to spend some time chatting with Keith about both shows and what comes next for the two, in addition to

Wonder Con 2015: CourtneyK spends time learning about THE MESSENGERS from the cast and creators!

The new series, THE MESSENGERS came to WonderCon, and in this particular pressroom, we had quite the large talent pool to talk to! Grand total? 9! Wheeeew! Let’s dig in, shall we? The story is a potentially hot button topic: Religion/Faith and What Humanity actually means. Whoa, heavy stuff! When a mysterious object crashes to Earth, an energy pulse goes out and “kills” a seemingly random amount of individuals. However, each comes back to life (no zombies!) and they are

Natalie Martinez talks SECRETS AND LIES: “I think it’s pretty shocking!”

Tonight on ABC, don’t miss an all new episode of murder mystery drama SECRETS AND LIES, starring Ryan Phillippe as a man wrongfully accused (or is he) of murdering the neighbor boy who (spoiler alert) happens to have been his son.  The boy’s mother, Jess, is played by Natalie Martinez, who you might recognize from UNDER THE DOME and DETROIT 1-8-7, among so many other things, and I spent some time chatting with her about what brought her to this

CRISTELA’s Maria Canals-Barrera previews the end of the show’s first season

Throughout the season, as many brand new comedies have come and gone without much fanfare, CRISTELA has continued to be a very bright spot on ABC’s Friday nights.  Created by, and named after, comedienne Cristela Alonzo, the show follows a multi-generational Mexican-American family as they deal with work and family in Texas. Maria Canals-Barrera stars as Cristela’s sister Daniela and we spent some time talking about what is coming up through the end of this season, plus what Season 2

Wonder Con 2015: Courtney K spends time with the cast of SALEM to preview Season 2

On the first day of WonderCon 2015, I had the pleasure of meeting with some of the people that bring the show, Salem about, with the much-anticipated today! Needless to say, I was very excited to talk about Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery), John Alden (Shane West) and the rest of dark and twisty characters of Salem with the shows main cast and creators/executive producers Brannon Braga and Adam Simon. Janet Montgomery – Mary Sibley Q: Season 2 for Mary Sibley,

Sammi Hanratty previews SALEM S2 and Lifetime’s SEEDS OF YESTERDAY

Sammi H Capture FI

If you’ve watched TV or movies over the past 10 years, chances are, you’ve seen the face of Sammi Hanratty (my personal favorite being young Chuck on PUSHING DAISIES). That familiar face has a big April this year as Season 2 of her WGN America show SALEM hits your screens Easter Sunday (sounds like Dollie has some tough decisions to make), and the long awaited premiere of the fourth movie in the Lifetime/Dollanganger series, SEEDS OF YESTERDAY, premieres April 12

First Look: Syfy’s KILLJOYS

When we attended Syfy’s Digital Press Tour in October, we were treated to a Q&A with the cast of KILLJOYS, their latest drama and then one I’m most excited for, based on the footage we saw.  Syfy FINALLY announced a premiere date (6/19) and we now have our first look to share with all of you!  KILLJOYS is a story about bounty hunters in space (and honestly, so much more); Aaron Ashmore (Johnny), Luke MacFarlane (D’avin), and kick ass Hannah
