Carlton Cuse’s American adaptation of hit French series The Returned has been picked up with a 10-episode order and a summer production start. The Returned is a unique take on the zombie genre and the North American debut of the original French series placed in the top five of Eclipse’s Favorite Fifteen + 5 earlier this year.

Cuse wrote the first episode of the new take on The Returned and will write and produce the series with Raelle Tucker (True Blood) for A&E. For more details, check out the press release following the jump.

A&E Gives Longmire 10-Episode Third Season!

03

It’s been almost three months since Sheriff Walt Longmire found himself on the horns of a dilemma in the second season finale of A&E’s Longmire. While there’s always been a sense that it would return for a third season (A&E wouldn’t cancel both The Glades and Longmire would it? Especially if it wasn’t announcing both at the same time…), nothing had been said, officially – until today.

So, you can stop holding your breath, now (you’re very strong – did you know that?). Longmire will return to A&E for a third 10-episode season. We just don’t know when, quite yet. Check out the press release after the jump.

How do you follow a six-season run on one of the biggest cult TV shows of all time? If you’re Carlton Cuse, you tackle the backstory of the most famous serial killer in film and TV history, Norman Bates.

TheGlades_S1

Imagine, if you will, a version of the classic The Rockford Files where Jim Rockford is a cop instead of a private investigator – and he’s been transplanted from sunny California to equally the sunny but muggier Florida Everglades [the resort town of Palm Glade], in particular. The result might be a lot like A&E’s surprise hit, The Glades.

Not even a skilled Baywatch lifeguard could resuscitate The Hasselhoffs after the first two episodes aired to dismal ratings.

On Friday, December 10th, A&E announced that that were removing the reality show The Hasselhoffs from their Sunday night schedule. The Hasselhoffs featured former Baywatch and Knight Rider star David Hasselhoff and his two daughters, who are aspiring to get into showbiz. According to The Nielsen Co. the first episode was seen by 718,000 viewers but that the audience hit low tide at 505,000 the second week.  This ratings drop translates to meaning that more than half the people who watched the show  “Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels,”  which preceded The Hasselhoffs turned away from it in droves once Simmons show, which has an audience of 1.4 million, was over.

There are eight completed episodes of The Hasselhoffs that will remain unaired as A&E has no plans at this time to bring the series back.
