Syfy’s The Magicians (Mondays, 9/8C) is a series that looks at what it might be like to have real magic in a real place (New York City) right now – from the point of view of Quentin Coldwater, a graduate student who kind drifts onto the quad at Breakbills College for Magical Pedagogy, and his best friend, Julia. Created by Sera Gamble (Supernatural) and John McNamara (Vengeance Unlimited, Aquarius), The Magicians is adapted from the bestselling novels by Lev Grossman.

Last week, Gamble and series star Jason Ralph spoke with a group of bloggers/journalists about the series – how it hews closely to the book; how it differs, and what author Lev Grossman’s involvement is.

Mena Suvari Returns To Charleston For WE tv’s Horror Series South of Hell!

South of Hell - Key Art

Mena Suvari first appeared in a couple of episodes of Boy Meets World, so when American Beauty became both a commercial and critical success, she’d paid her dues and played a range of characters. Despite working steadily since then, that film seems to be the one thing everyone knows her from.

With WE tv’s South of Hell (the first season of which marathons on Black Friday) – created by Jason Blum and Eli Roth (Roth directed the premiere) – might just change that. In the series Suvari plays a woman who is forced to co-exist with a demon – and uses that demon to return other demons to Hell.

Suvari spoke with a group of journalists/bloggers recently about tackling not only a lead in a series, but a double lead.

Grimm’s Claire Coffee Assesses Adalind, Teases Season!

Claire_Coffee_on_Adalind_s_Pregnancy

Grimm’s (NBC, Fridays, 9/8C) fifth season gets underway this evening and things have changed quite a bit over the years. For instance, the evil Adalind we know and love to hate took on the appearance of Nick’s fiancée and slept with him – getting pregnant in the process. Then she was used and betrayed by the Royals.

Finally, with her Hexenbiest powers suppressed and with nowhere else to turn, she came to Nick for help. With everything in Nick’s life rapidly going to hell in the proverbial handcart, their baby might be the only good thing going on in his life right now. So he and his allies – Bud, Hank, Monroe and Rosalee – agreed to help her out.

On Thursday, Claire Coffee took some time out of her busy schedule to talk with a group of bloggers/journalists about the new, improved Adalind, the baby and how she and Adalind differ in their parenting styles.
