Development Slate: Judge & Pitt Deals; Roach’s next; Snowboarding and More

It is truly amazing to me how many deals get formed with HBO each year. Of course it comes as no surprise that talents want to work with the acclaimed cable network; what’s surprises me is the number of “irons in the fire” they have. If even half of the potential deals saw a positive outcome then there would be original programming every night of the week and all year round. Alas, we know that won’t happen. Here are a few ventures that might  just make to air.   King of the Hills” Mike Judge signs a deal. HBO has picked up to pilot a single-camera dark comedy from show creator and executive producer Mike Judge....

Robert Patrick Promoted to True Blood Regular

Robert Patrick Promoted to True Blood Regular

Looks like Alcide’s papa will be sticking around for a while! Deadline is reporting that veteran actor Robert Patrick has officially signed on as series regular for the upcoming 6th season of True Blood. Patrick first came on the scene as werewolf Alcide’s backwoods dad last season, while all of the fae/Russel/wolf pack drama was unfolding. What do you think about this news? Personally, I wasn’t really invested in the story arc involving Alcide’s dad last season; truth be told I was hoping Alcide would get a fresh new plot to sink his teeth into next year. Are you even interested in learning more about Alcide’s...

Boardwalk Empire Season 3: Full Recap & S4 Speculation

Boardwalk Empire Season 3: Full Recap & S4 Speculation

Season 3 was one of the most exciting seasons on the ‘Boardwalk’ but is it enough to compete with Jimmy Darmody in seasons 1 and 2? We were introduced to an ensemble of new characters and story lines while others were suddenly stripped away. Many HBO fans that stray away from ‘Boardwalk’ do so because they feel that the show moves at too slow a pace. It’s hard to argue with that, but people need to look at the bigger picture. The very essence of story is the constant buildup of tension and conflict which ‘Boardwalk Empire’ accomplishes in a masterful way. All we can do now is sit back and wait until...
