Supergirl Will Soar Onto UK Screens This Month On Sky1

Supergirl is coming to Sky1 in the UK.

Melissa Benoist will soar onto our screens as the Maid of Might from Thursday, October 29 at 8pm.

This means that UK audiences will get to see new episodes of Supergirl just 3 days after the US, where the show will premiere October 26 on CBS.

Adam MacDonald, director of Sky1, said: "I am delighted to announce Supergirl is coming to Sky1. We've already seen in the success of The Flash and Arrow that comic-book characters are a big hit with our customers, and with this fresh, fast-paced new series, we're giving them another sure-fire superhero smash."

Joining Glee and Whiplash star Benoist on the series are Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, Mehcad Brooks as James - not Jimmy - Olsen and David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, who in the comics becomes the deranged Cyborg Superman.

Lucy Lane - sister of Lois - will also feature, played by Jenna Dewan-Tatum, while DC villains set to appear include Maxwell Lord (Peter Facinelli), Livewire (Brit Morgan, Red Tornado (Iddo Goldberg) and Non (Chris Vance).

Where on Earth (or in space in this case) was Executive Officer Gault transported to? I wanna know!

Yep, I watched Syfy's 6 episodes mini-series ASCENSION, knowing perfectly that it wasn't picked up as a series. Not even Tricia Helfer's (and her girls) sensuality could save the series.

Syfy Cancels "Defiance" After Three Seasons

NBC Universal's $100 million transmedia gamble, the Syfy futuristic drama series "Defiance,"has been axed.

Launched three years ago and the most expensive series in the cable network's history at the time, the project was built on the aim of combining an ongoing TV series with a massively multiplayer online video game with elements that would bleed between both.

The trouble was it required people to invest time in both the show and the game as they were happening, something it never really quite achieved despite scoring the second-largest series premiere in network history. Grant Bowler and Julie Benz starred in the series which wrapped its recent third season with an average of of just 1.12 million total viewers per episode.

The decision comes days after the channel axed its warring angels drama "Dominion" after two seasons. The network has lavish dramas "The Expanse" and "Childhood's End" on the way along with freshmen fantasy tales "The Magicians" and "Hunters" along with returning shows "12 Monkeys," "Killjoys" and "Dark Matter" and several key shows in the work including "Incorporated," "Krypton," "Brave New World," "Hyperion," and "3001: The Final Odyssey".

Emerald City Casts Vincent D'Onofrio - He's Off To Be NBC's Wizard!

If you're paying attention to that man behind the curtain, you'll notice it's Vincent D'Onofrio. 

The Marvel's Daredevil and Law & Order: Criminal Intent vet has been cast as the Wizard of Oz in Emerald City, NBC's upcoming 10-episode adaptation blending elements from author L. Frank Baum's classic 14-novel collection. 

D'Onofrio's Wizard is described as "the enigmatic leader of Emerald City. A man of science in a world of magic, he rules through inspiration, fear and a tenuous accord with the grand witches."

The logline for the drama is as follows: "Swept up into the eye of a tornado, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale is transported to another world - a mystical land in great peril, where an all-powered Wizard has outlawed magic and rules over the many kingdoms. This is the fabled Land of Oz in a way you've never seen before - where lethal warriors roam, wicked witches plot in the shadows and a young girl from Kansas becomes the headstrong hero who holds the fate of their world in her hands."

The Peacock net gave Emerald City a 10-episode, straight-to-series order back in April, a reversal of fortune for a project it had killed off back in April 2014. The reimagining found David Shulner (The Event) taking over showrunner reins from original writer EP/writer Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). Shaun Cassidy (American Gothic, Invasion) will serve as executive producer alongside Schulner.

Over the summer, True Detective Season 2 star Adria Arjona landed the lead role of Dorothy.Tarsem, who worked with D'Onofrio on The Cell, is set to direct.

'Blood & Oil' Order Cut To 10 Episodes By ABC

Another new drama series is seeing its original 13-episode order trimmed. ABC has downsized the pickup of Blood & Oil to 10 episodes. The series is currently filming Episode 8 and will wrap production after completing its tenth episode. Blood & Oil will end its freshman run in December and will remain in its Sunday 9 PM slot, at least for now.

Blood & Oil revolves around a young couple (Chace Crawford, Rebecca Rittenhouse) who move to North Dakota where a local oil baron (Don Johnson) takes the guy under his wing. The series, from ABC studios, underwent a showrunner change as it had faced production challenges filming on location in Utah.

In addition to Blood & Oil, the 13-episode orders of Fox's Minority Report and NBC's The Player were cut down to 10 and 9 episodes, respectively.

# 1208 I'm a fan of Bates Motel, robbo.
Norman's mom, Norma, if you remember she was the mother in the film Orphan.
That is a film everybody should watch, if you haven't then you've really missed something good.

# 1041 I never miss Gotham, although I'm surprised that they're going to include Robin. Still, this storyline is closer to the original story, I'm guessing.
The Dark Knight, I see as something completely different from another universe/reality.

# 1360 Yes indeed Bates Motel is an absolutely awesome series Kevin, great news they are putting a lot of faith into the show. 

Orphan is just an awe-inspiring film, I feel a creepy sensation all over me every time I watch this film. 

Another similar type of movie to look out for which is brilliant, a film called We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011) starring Tilda Swinton.

'The Whispers' Cancelled After 1 Season 

ABC has made it official, opting not to pick up summer drama series The Whispers for a second season. The decision comes four months after the options on the cast expired. The network and producing studio ABC Studios hinted at the direction they were leaning at the end of June when they allowed the options on all the actors to lapse, with a possible renewal requiring brand new talent contracts. 

The cast included Lily Rabe, Milo Ventimiglia, Barry Sloane, Derek Webster, Kristen Connolly, Kylie Rogers and Kyle Harrison Breitkopf. 

The show's producers' creative plan for Season 2 included expanding the scope of the implications caused by the events in the first season, which would call for some tweaks and cast turnover.

"Supergirl" Has Fall TV's Biggest Debut 

Despite the pilot having leaked online months ago, CBS' "Supergirl" TV series had its debut last night and pulled in strong numbers - in fact it was the Fall's highest-rated and most-watched new series debut for a first night showing. 

"Supergirl" averaged a strong 3.2 rating among adults 18-49 and 12.9 million viewers in live-plus-same day metrics, putting it just ahead of NBC's "Blindspot" which had the best debut to date with with a 3.1 rating. That number is expected to grow considerably when delayed viewing is taken into account. 

Meanwhile Henry Czerny ("Revenge," "Mission: Impossible) will join the cast of "Supergirl" in the guest starring role of mad criminal genius Winslow Schott Sr. (aka. The Toyman). At present, Czerny is only booked for one episode. 

In the series, the character is also the estranged father of series regular Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan) and is driven by a desire to reunite with his beloved son.
