Miniseries “Heroes Reborn” Comes to NBC in 2015

NEW EVENT MINISERIES ‘HEROES REBORN’ COMES TO NBC IN 2015

Tim Kring to Executive Produce 13 New Episodes of Groundbreaking Series ‘Heroes’

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Feb. 22, 2014 — NBC is bringing back its conquering “Heroes.”

An iconic series that still commands a rabid fan base, “Heroes” will return to the network in 2015 as an event miniseries with original creator and executive producer Tim Kring at the helm, it was announced today by NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke.

NBC has ordered 13 episodes for a new stand-alone story arc entitled “Heroes Reborn,” with all details of storylines and characters being kept under wraps.

“The enormous impact ‘Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” said NBC Entertainment  President Jennifer Salke. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. We’re thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept. Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”

The original series chronicled the life-changing stories of a series of unrelated ordinary people who discovered they had superhuman abilities. As the saga unfolded, they learned they were part of a grand plan that brought them together to change the world.

With the return of “Heroes Reborn,” NBC will launch a digital series prior to the 2015 premiere that will introduce the characters and new storylines. This leveraging of social media is a way for fans to re-engage with what was one for the true pioneers in multiplatform storytelling.

The iconic sci-fi series, which ran on NBC from 2006-10 and was an immediate hit, ranked as television’s #1 new drama with an average audience of 14.5 million viewers during its initial season. The show was Golden Globe-nominated in its first year of eligibility for best drama series; it won the BAFTA Award for best international series, the AFI Award, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films Saturn Award, two People’s Choice Awards and the Television Critics Association Award for Program of the Year.

“Heroes” remains one of the best-selling TV series on DVD of all time with more than 10 million units sold.

Main Street Films Aquires Joe Manganiello’s “LA Bare”

1609612_631280513575715_1328589570_n

MAIN STREET FILMS ACQUIRES JOE MANGANIELLO’S “LA BARE” FROM 3:59
 
High profile Slamdance premiere results in competitive deal-making for theatrical release
PARK CITY, UT – Main Street Films announced today the acquisition of Joe Manganiello’s La Bare.  Manganiello’s production company 3:59 Inc., run by brother Nick Manganiello, produced the crowd-pleasing documentary.  The Magic Mike star’s directorial debut gives an insider’s look at the history, the lives and the culture of the most popular male strip club in the world, La Bare Dallas.
The movie premiered Sunday night as one of the most high-profile films in Slamdance history.  The appetite was strong and tickets were hard to come by for the sold-out, raucous premiere, which was attended by the La Bare dancers featured in the documentary, and followed by a Q&A with Elvis Mitchell after the screening.  Slamdance’s President and Co-Founder, Peter Baxter, had this to say about the screening, “During programming, we knew the audience would go wild for La Bare and they certainly did!”

Main Street Films’ Chairman, Craig Chang, and President, Harrison Kordestani, were amongst those in attendance, and after seeing the audience reaction to the film, made their opening offer in the lobby of the Treasure Mountain Inn less than five minutes after the credits rolled.  The deal is mid-six figures for North American and Chinese rights and said to include a theatrical guaranty and commitment for a minimum 20-market US release to take place in Summer 2014.
“Our mantra is ‘engaging entertainment’ and that’s across all genres,” said Harrison Kordestani, President of Main Street Films. “From indie, action, romance, drama, comedy, and now documentary…Main Street Films is committed to creating a diverse universe of films that have a unique voice and vision.  We are really impressed with what Joe has produced and are excited to partner with him on distributing La Bare in North America.”
“I was immediately impressed by Main Street’s excitement, vision, resources and character,” said the pic’s director Joe Manganiello.  “I got that sense in my gut right away that this was the right company to help launch 3:59′s flagship film La Bare, as well as form a strong partnership for future projects.”
World-renowned DJ, Zach “Z-Trip” Sciacca, composed the music for the film, enhancing the project with an additional layer of emotional depth and hipness, and played the packed after-party where multiple distributors were trying to find time to discuss a deal with the Executive Producers and film reps, Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield, of Movie Package Company.
Pic adds another dimension to an already over-achieving career for Manganiello, who can count television star (True BloodHow I Met Your Mother), film star (upcoming SabotageMagic Mike, Raimi’s Spider-Man series), and successful author (Evolution with Gallery Books, a Simon & Schuster company) amongst his career accomplishments to date.  Now add film auteur.
The deal was negotiated by Harrison Kordestani on behalf of Main Street Films and by Executive Producers Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield of Movie Package Company.

True Blood Season 7 Meet the New James

blog

True Blood has found it’s new “James”. Nathan Parsons has been cast to play the role of James. Luke Grimes who had played the character and love interest for Vampire Jessica had asked to be released from his contract.

TVLine reported that : “He initially joined the show because he wanted to work with [his Forever co-star] Deborah Ann Woll,” explained a source close to the actor. “But when he started reading the scripts for Season 7, he was disappointed to learn that they were going in a completely different direction with James.”

Per Ausiello:  ”According to a True Blood insider, James will find himself at the center of a surprising love triangle in Season 7.”

Another love triangle! Hmm Jessica/James/Jason perhaps?

Walking 3The video on this link shows Prince Harry and the teams walking from their plane to the camps. Spot the tall one- Alexander Skarsgard in his blue Team USA jacket.

Walking With The Wounded Team US Training With Alexander Skarsgard

photo1-800x600

Walking with the Wounded site posted a new article today discussing their training with Alexander Skarsgard. Excerpt below:

We arrived in Malibu at a beautiful horse ranch, owned by Inge’s friend Klaus. It was at this ranch we met for the first time the newest, and final, addition to WWTW Team US; actor Alexander Skarsgard.

1185712_10151836648091075_903620855_n-800x600
What a great complement to our team! I am even more confident that we have a winning combination now.

That morning we all sat for breakfast and then embarked on a four hour hike up some California switchbacks. Alex immediately connected with each and every member on the team during the hike. On our way back, we accidently trespassed onto Klaus’ neighbor’s property. He seemed a bit upset… we did our best to reason with him, but got nowhere… so Mark threw out the typical excuse… ”The blind guy was leading the hike!” Blame it on the blind guy. I always have to take the fall, however, if I’m honest, I never did like those no trespassing signs.

1186757_10151836648051075_394887558_n-800x600
It must have worked, as we managed to leave the property unscathed!!! However, no shortcuts for Team US…. we had strict orders to retreat in the direction we came.

This past weekend in LA was a great experience for Team U.S. It gave us another chance to bond and continue to experience and gain knowledge in each others strengths and weaknesses. I always appreciated my team coming together and acting as my guide during these training sessions.

In closing, I believe the US team is shaping up nicely! We are dynamic. We all bring certain strength that makes it quite unique.

Now that we have Alex to complete our team I am confident we are on our way. Alex is genuine, easy to talk to, and displayed his willingness to be a team player. He’s not afraid to get his hands dirty and was eager to train in order to be an asset… and an asset he will be as he is in excellent physical condition!

Next up, Norway. I am looking forward to meeting up with all the teams!
