Has Crackle Cracked the Code For Over-The-Top Content Companies?

The article includes an interview with Jesse Bradford on Crackle's new legal drama "Sequestered".

Has Crackle Cracked the Code For Over-The-Top Content Companies?

Quote
“When I first got offered to do this, I asked myself, ‘Do I want to be on the Internet?” said Jesse Bradford (Flags of Our Fathers, Bring It On), a star of Sequestered. “But I’m glad I did. It’s the interesting space right now.”

The show, a courtroom drama about a sequestered jury, also stars Summer Glau (Firefly, Terminator: The Chronicles of Sarah Connor) and Mr. All Media, Patrick Warburton (Rules of Engagement, Family Guy). The show also has some online roots: one of the show’s directors is Kevin Tancharoen, whose Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2 online series also won a Streamy Award this past weekend among a raft of nominations.

“I had to get over my own preconceived notion of what is going on in the world,” Bradford said. “TV is becoming movies, the Internet is becoming TV and film is becoming museum pieces that are hard to access.”

The show debuted half its episodes Aug. 5, with the other half coming in October. Because it’s the Internet, Bradford said, “the parameters are really loose. It’s not quite so paint-by-numbers.”

And he had another realization: Crackle’s production crew, “though they were a little young and a little green, had worked together a lot.” The result was the kind of near-telepathic cooperation and efficiency between crew members that Bradford said you might see on the set of a veteran director such as Clint Eastwood or Steven Spielberg, who have worked with many of the same behind-the-camera principals for years. That makes for great efficiency, though budgets still don’t leave a lot of room for dallying.

“What you get are these groups of people who know how to work together,” Bradford said. “How are we (shooting) 20 pages (of script) a day? That’s how.”

"Gotham" Ratings Surge During Week

The first time-shift ratings are in for the opening night of the fall TV season with Fox"s "Gotham" proving a big winner.

In live+3 ratings, which tallies viewers watching a show the night it airs and/or any of the subsequent three following days via DVR, the Batman prequel series jumped 56% and 1.8 points to a 5.0 rating.

That number was the highest rating for the night among adults under 50, beating both "Scorpion" and "The Blacklist" which both rose 44% to 4.6 and 4.9 respectively. Also up considerably were "Sleepy Hollow" which jumped 50% to a 3.0, and "Forever" which went up 41% to a 2.4.

Not sure about "Gotham" I didn"t hate it just more or less in a wait and see mode, I thought maybe possibly too much given to us in a single episode.

Fox Yanks "Utopia" From Tuesdays 

Fox is dumping half of Utopia from its schedule. 

The idealistic-sounding series with the hellish ratings is being yanked from Tuesday nights. From now on, Utopia will only air Fridays. The move comes just hours after we predicted this very move in EW"s first canceled shows post. While Utopia is not cancelled, the decision marks a major demotion for the series. 

Fox had a very ambitious plan for Utopia, which was originally announced as a yearlong show. Though the series was originally intended to eventually segue to one night a week, that night was supposed to be the higher-profile Tuesday nights after running for six weeks on the air. Utopia has struggled hugely in the ratings.

Wow! Huge hit for The CW standards.
One could say The Flash is more interesting than Green Arrow (and more famous) since he actually has super powers. The pilot (I saw the leaked version this Summer) was fun and a welcome break from all the dark gloomy superhero adaptations out there.

Side notes:
1) Marvel's Agents of SHIELD now under CW ratings. Ouch!
2) The pilot was directed by David Nutter, who has done some of the best pilots in decades, including Smallville, Supernatural, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles or Arrow.

Ra's Al Ghul Talk, A Third DC-CW Series?

With "The Flash" pulling in big numbers and "Arrow" being the network's most-watched show of the past two years, it comes as no surprise that The CW is looking into the possibility of a third TV series based on a DC Comics property.

CW President Mark Pedowitz tells Buzzfeed: "There are discussions going on, but I can't tell you what they are."

The comment comes from a lengthy piece on the website about the production of the upcoming third season of "Arrow" said piece wraps up with talk about the new season's main villain Ra's al Ghul. Pedowitz confirmed they did approach actor Liam Neeson, who played the role in 2005's "Batman Begins", about a potential reprisal: "We never thought he would. We quickly went to him, just on the off-chance that he had the time to do it."

The role ended up in the hands of Australian actor Matt Nable who delivers a quite different interpretation. Producer Marc Guggenheim says: "What we're trying to do is something a bit more elemental. Presenting a Ra's al Ghul who's a bit more primal. More of a legend and a whisper and something to be feared ."

Hail The CW a force to be reckoned with at the moment. The CW is on a onward and upward curve, good for them.

''"Dome," "Extant," "Murder" & More Pickups

It has been a big day for various TV drama series either scoring renewals or full season pick-ups.

First up, CBS has renewed its two major Summer event series "Under The Dome" and "Extant". The recent second season of "Dome" pulled in an average of 9.4 million total viewers and a 2.2 rating per episode, down considerably from the first season (13.1 million viewers/3.3 rating) but still a big performer during the season.

Meanwhile the Halle Berry-led "Extant" has averaged 8.6 million total viewers and a 1.7 rating for its initial season. While both shows are returning, the network's Southern legal soap "Reckless" isn't so lucky and has been axed after pulling in an average of just 4 million total viewers and a 0.6 rating.

Next up, ABC has given full-season commitments to two of its new Fall shows - the mystery thriller "How to Get Away With Murder" and the comedy "Black-ish", "Murder" will score a fifteen-episode run which is the largest number of episodes Viola Davis"schedule allows for. "Black-ish" will score a more standard twenty-two episode run.

Meanwhile, Amazon studios has renewed its transgender-themed freshman comedy "Transparent " for a second season to air in 2015.

Finally, AMC has confirmed that it's ditching its unscripted shows in favor of its scripted dramas. While "Talking Dead" talkshow and Kevin Smith's "Comic Book Men" will contiue all its other unscripted programming in production or development is being discontinued.

This includes the recently renewed "Game of Arms" which will shut down production on its second season effective immediately. Producers will have the option of seeking another home for their unscripted projects with AMC's cooperation.

Keaton "Very Proud" Of His Batman

Ben Affleck wasn't there, but another Batman was in attendance at this year's New York Comic Con this weekend - Michael Keaton. The actor was on hand to promote his role in "Birdman," the upcoming dark comedy which scored incredible critical reviews during the Fall film festival circuit.

Considering the film is about a struggling actor haunted by a super hero role that made him famous, Keaton certainly has some familiarity with the subject. One big difference to his character though is that he has no bitter feelings towards the iconic superhero role he played in two Tim Burton films - quite the opposite in fact. He tells Screen Rant:

"Having played Batman and being very proud of playing Batman. I never back off that. The idea was bold, interesting, and cool when Tim made it. I didn't really put it together, Edward did [a superhero movie] too. I just go to work.

When I took the original, I was unfamiliar with comic books. I wasn't a comic book reader. [Reading the script he thought], this isn't the way that I see the character but am glad to read it. Then I met Tim the next day, I'm saying [Batman]is this and this, and he was nodding in agreement. So I asked, are they going to make this? Tim said, I don't know. Let's find out.'

Would he ever return to the role? "If it was Tim Burton directing? In a heartbeat."

Keaton will always be in my mind, one of the best Batman's ever, he played the role quite seriously with such great affect. and pulled it off on both occasions.

"Walking Dead" Season 5 Premiere Is Show's Highest-Rated Episode Ever

The Walking Dead is very much alive. The show's season 5 premiere marked the series' highest-rated episode ever with 17.3 million viewers, up 7 percent from the previous record-holder, the season 4 premiere.
The show was also up 6 percent in adults aged 18-49 with 11 million viewers. 
Speaking of the season 4 premiere, it now comes in second place for the show with 16.1 total viewers and 10.4 million viewers 18.49. 
It was after seven days of DVR playback that the season 4 premiere became the most highly-rated episode in cable television history, something we'll have to wait and see if the season 5 premiere can top.
