McG has signed a two-year development deal with ABC Family, ABC Studios and ABC Signature – not surprising, since his Wonderland Sound & Vision is part of the Shadowhunters team and he has been a part of numerous hit series (The OC, Chuck, Supernatural, Nikita…).
Under the deal, he will direct and develop scripted drama and comedy series and produce digital content for various platforms. For more, follow the jump.
Zachary Levi (Chuck) is back in the NBC fold. Levi has signed on to the networks upcoming event miniseries, Heroes Reborn. Levi will be joining the previously signed Jack Coleman who played Noah Bennet in the original series.
Morgan Grimes has to be one of the coolest characters on television, he manages a group of misfits at The Buy More and he gets to be a super spy with his best friend Chuck Bartowski. The final season of the show finds Morgan getting some super powers of his own and learning how to deal with it. Chuck’s final season has been on fire and we’re coming up to the 2 hour series finale. A few weeks ago Morgan Grimes himself – Joshua Gomez held court with a bunch of us bloggers. Here are some choice moments from the call.
Over five completely unexpected seasons – the show was always on the bubble – NBC’s little show that could, did! Chuck [Friday, 8/7C], wraps up its fifth and final season with a two-hour finale that will make you laugh, cry and laugh some more [before you cry some more]. If any other show wraps its run like this, it would be a crime. For Chuck to wrap this way is perfect.
After five seasons, NBC’s cult favorite spy series, Chuck [Friday, 8/7C], reaches the end of its mission with a two-hour finale this week. In honor of that accomplishment, the stars of the show look back at what the show has done – and what it has meant to the.
Besides the remaining interview clips, a sneak peek at the series finale follows the jump.
For five years Chuck has been one of my favorite shows. I finally watched the entire current season – all 12 episodes today and it’s been great. Sadly next week’s episode is the series finale, but it should go out with a bang.
This week, Chuck [NBC, Fridays, 9/8C] – aka The Little Show That Could – returns to the NBC schedule with a few minor changes: Team Bartkowski has gone private, Morgan has the Intersect and, oh, yeah, they’re nearly broke! [Start up costs, y’know…?]
Last night, your Eclipsemagazine roving Comic Con Reporter was at the NBC Network Party with bells on. Yes, real bells on a cute blue bracelet I bought on a shopping trip. The party was held at the Hard Rock hotel in the Gaslamp District. There was plenty of food, drinks and friendly people from NBC and other press outlets.
There was also a lot of stars from hit NBC shows like ‘Community’ and ‘Chuck’. And of course stars from the new NBC supernatural themed series, ‘Grimm’. Cody Deal, star of the SyFy Channel original movie ‘The Almighty Thor’, was also on hand to chat with everyone.
Everyone was super friendly and happy to talk to fans and press alike. Because I wasn’t able to take each and every reader of Eclipsemagazine with me to the party to meet and mingle with the actors, they were more than happy to take a moment to shout out a hello to all of you.
In part one of article, take a look at the shouts outs from Adam Baldwin, Yvette Nichole Brown and Cody Deal.
TV Guide Magazine has come to realize that the Nielsen Ratings doesn’t always give a true picture of which TV shows are fan favorites. That’s why they chose to give the fans a voice in showing their appreciation for their favorites. TV Guide ran a poll, the fans voted and some of the winners are:
Castle, The Big Bang Theory, Dancing with the Stars, Chuck and Supernatural. Congratulations to Jensen Ackles for winning best actor , Misha Collins for winning best Non-Human Character and Timothy Dalton for winning Best Villain.
Check out the video after the jump to see what the stars of all these shows had to say about winning this award.
There were six shows in the running in the online poll that allowed fans to pick the cover for the first time in the magazine’s 57-year history. But in the end, it was a battle royale between The CW’s SUPERNATURAL and NBC’s CHUCK. Both sides mobilized their fanbases, voting furiously for what seemed to be endless days; the battle complete with fun, drama and accusations of cheating so that fans could tip the scales in their favor. But even cramped fingers resulting from entering endless ‘captcha’ codes could not deter these dedicated fans as they voted continuously for twelve grueling days at the end of October. They have been waiting on pins and needles ever since to see if the fruits of their labor paid off.
As promised by Debra Birnbaum, Editor-in-Chief of TV Guide magazine, the announcement was made today. The news first broke when Ms. Birnbaum unveiled the cover on “The Early Show” this morning. She stated that after attending Comic-Con the idea of the cover poll contest was inspired by seeing the enthusiasm that fans exhibit for certain shows which may not get huge ratings but have solid ‘cult’ followings. This passion and dedication is not something that is reflected in the Neilsen numbers, but it was certainly reflected in the 5.5 million votes that came in. In the end only about twenty thousand votes separated the winner and the runner-up. Ms. Birnbaum also made the announcement via her Twitter feed confirming that Supernatural is the winner and providing a sneak peak at the cover that will be hitting newsstands on December 9 featuring the stars of Supernatural, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. I have a feeling that after these issues fly off the shelf, TV Guide will be asking themselves why they never featured the Winchester brothers on the cover before! At least for fans, it is a feeling of sweet victory for something they have been begging to see for six years now. Congratulations Supernatural! You not only earned it, but certainly deserve it.
Ok, Marla made her pitch to have you fine EM readers vote for Smallville and Supernatural to get the cover of TV guide. But me being your fearless leader have to go with Chuck for the cover. Smallville and Supernatural are in their last seasons, but poor Chuck can’t get no respect, so how could would it be if once again Chuck fans came through for the little show that could? Vote Chuck! And if that’s not enough Robert England is in a Halloween themed episode tonight.
