Brian Letscher talks SCANDAL and GRIMM

brian-fi

SCANDAL’s Brian Letscher has seen his character Tom take quite a few steps out from the shadows of President Grant as a secret service agent to (spoiler alert) come front and center as the mole inside the White House, feeding secrets and doing dirty work for B613. While not dealing with framing people for murders he kind of committed, he’s also taking a featured role on the first two episodes of GRIMM Season 4, and working with his brother Matt

Looking for something different? Try RightThisMinute!

RTM-FI

We typically cover dramas and comedies, and all of the genres in between, here on MyTakeonTV, but this week, I put together a plan to spend some time getting to know the the folks at RightThisMinute, a syndicated Viral Videos show that has a group of hosts watching, discussing, and breaking down the hottest viral videos of the week. What is RightThisMinute? The episodes run about an hour long, and air throughout the country on various stations (you can find

Z NATION’s Keith Allan previews what comes next

znation

Z NATION airs Friday nights on Syfy, and as the show has progressed, we’ve seen the team work together to, somewhat reluctantly, save a man named Murphy who holds what could be the cure or vaccine for Zombie and zombieism. On tonight’s all new episode, the gang encounters seemingly utopian cult and face major consequences. Keith Allan plays Murphy and we recently spent some time chatting about how he got involved in the show, what else he’s done for Syfy,

Saturday, October 18 (at 9/8c), TNT will premiere THE TRANSPORTER television series, based on the movies of the same name, this time starring familiar face and MToT favorite Chris Vance as Frank, the man transporting the packages people need from Point A to Point B and getting into a few scrapes along the way. I had a chance to talk to Chris about why he wanted to do this show, why fans will like it, and what we’ll see as

Quick Take: NBC’s MARRY ME is fun

marry-me-fi

I was a huge fan of HAPPY ENDINGS, and Casey Wilson before that. I love Ken Marino more than most things in life. Together, they make up the leads of NBC’s new comedy series MARRY ME, premiering tonight at 9/8c, after ABOUT A BOY. The show follows Wilson’s Annie and Marino’s Jake as they deal with their relationship. Annie gets mad that they’re not engaged right when Jake gets down on one knee, and the rest of the pilot is

Comic Con 2014: Talking THE FLASH with the cast and creatives!

flash-comic-con

Hot on the heels of the fan favorite, ARROW, a new adaptation of The Flash was a gamble. However, the right casting and writing teams have been dispatched and it seems pretty clear that; it’s gonna be a great show! During San Diego Comic Con 2014, I got the chance to sit down with the leading cast members and an executive producer; we didn’t get much time, but hey. What did you expect from a show about the fastest man

My Take On…CRISTELA on ABC

cristela-fi

Tonight on ABC, their latest multi-camera comedy, CRISTELA, a throw-back-feeling camera loosely based on a stand-up’s life and family (the charmingly funny Cristela Alonzo), finally premieres. And if I’m being completely honest with you, it is one of my top comedies of the new breed. Alonzo stars in the self-titled comedy that follows a Texas lawyer (who is finally almost really a lawyer), dealing with her very close Mexican-American family and the expectation that she become a maid or call

Quick Take: A to Z on NBC is charming

atoz-FI

A TO Z, premiering tonight on NBC at 9:30/8:30c, is a charming show about Andrew (Ben Feldman, whom I adore) and Zelda (Cristin Milioti, whom I also adore) who locked eyes at a concert years ago, and now they live and work near each other, which Andrew deems fate and Zelda deems coincidence. The show follows the would-be couple from their meet cute to what happens to their relationship, and every little thing between.  There’s a (cliched) bearded sidekick and
