_rbdave73dj1_hires29Probably one of the most successful and popular procedural franchises in TV history, NCIS is branching out to include the Big Easy in its gritty storytelling. Premiering tonight on CBS, NCIS: NEW ORLEANS takes full advantage of all that Louisiana locations have to offer and is a fine addition to the NCIS stable.

Executive Produced by MARK HARMON (who will be making occasional crossover appearances), the new cast features SCOTT BAKULA, LUCAS BLACK, ZOE McLELLAN, ROB KERKOVICH and C.C.H. POUNDER.

Always an actor of considerable charm, SCOTT BAKULA is following up his work in MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE and LOOKING by relocating his family to NOLA and totally committing to the new show. During a press conference to promote the series, he talked about taking on the role.(CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

_rbdave73dj1_hires28Arguably the most anticipated new series of the season, GOTHAM on Fox. A delightfully noirish prequel to the Batman legend, the show centers on the search by a young Detective Jim Gordon (BEN McKENZIE) and his hard-boiled partner Bullock (DONAL LOGUE) for the man who killed the wealthy parents of a very young Bruce Wayne (DAVID MAZOUZ). Along the way viewers will be treated to the origin stories of such iconic comic-book villains as The Riddler (CORY MICHAEL SMITH), The Penguin (ROBIN TAYLOR), Poison Ivy (CLARE FOLEY), Catwoman (CAMREN BICONDOVA) and newcomer Fish Moody (JADA PINKETT SMITH).

Obviously designed to appeal to the ComicCon crowd, the show is actually much more accessible to a wider demographic than it seems. During our recent interview with star BEN McKENZIE, he admitted that you don’t have to be a BATMAN fan to get drawn into the story.


GOTHAM air Monday nights on Fox.

_rbdave73dj1_hires27In a nutshell, the general premise of the new CBS procedural SCORPION centers on an oddball band of socially inept genius outcasts (ELYES GABEL, ARI STIDHAM, EDDIE KAYE THOMAS, JADYN WONG) as well as the mom of a child with an abnormally high I.Q. (KATHERINE McPHEE) recruited by a G-man (ROBERT PATRICK) to work with the government solving all sorts of hi-tech crimes.

If the pilot is any indication, fans can expect plenty of action with SCORPION but, during a recent press conference to promote the show, series producer/writer NICK SANTORA couldn’t emphasize enough how much humor will be involved. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

SCORPION premieres tonight on CBS.

_rbdave73dj1_hires26Returning tonight on Fox, the sophomore season of SLEEPY HOLLOW picks up where the series left off in January. A contemporary retelling of the classic supernatural story written by WASHINGTON IRVING in 1802, the story centers on a time transplanted Ichabod Crane trying to solve a mystery in a world he knows nothing about.
Created by the hugely popular producing team of ALEX KURTZMAN and ROBERTO ORCI, the cast includes TOM MISON, NICOLE BEHARIE, ORLANDO JONES, KATIA WINTER and JOHN NOBLE.

A runaway hit from the get go, SLEEPY HOLLOW has developed a strong and loyal fan base. During our recent interview with star TOM MISON, he suggested that was the result of having ’something for everyone.’

Season Two of SLEEPY HOLLOW debuts tonight on Fox.

_rbdave73dj1_hires25Inter-web sensation TYLER OAKLEY has teamed up with longtime bff KOREY KUHL to produce a delightful new stream-of-consciousness podcast called PSYCHO BABBLE. Available through iTunes, PSYCHO BABBLE is a dishy, gossip and pop-culture filled chat that easily trumps any ‘hot topics’ TV segment. For those not familiar, OAKLEY and KUHL are YouTuber pioneers who have been instrumental in turning the am-cam site into major commerce. In fact, OAKLEY was part of a very small hand-full of YouTubers summoned by the POTUS to advise on social media and recently did a collab vid with the First Lady.

It may take awhile for old media to realize what a force social media has become but during a press conference with the Television Critics Association to promote the PBS doc GENERATION LIKE, the always entertaining TYLER OAKLEY tried to explain to a room full of tech-clueless critics how he got started doing what he does for a living.

15A little bit WEST WING and a little bit SCANDAL, the new CBS drama MADAME SECRETARY is a good fit for the Sunday night schedule and a welcome return to TV for fan-fave TEA LEONI. She plays Elizabeth McCord, a happily married mother of three whose past as a CIA analyst gets her recruited by an old pal (and current POTUS) to the post of Secretary of State. Reluctant at first, McCord quickly steps up to the plate and the series pilot indicates that she’s going to have a lot to deal with.

Speaking to reporters at a Television Critics Association press conference, TEA LEONI talked about the appeal of playing a character completely out of her element and why she wanted to be involved. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

MADAME SECRETARY premieres tonight on CBS.

14Returning for its sixth season tonight on CBS, THE GOOD WIFE opens where season five left off, with Eli (ALAN CUMMING) asking Alicia (JULIANNA MARGULIES) if she’d consider running for State’s Attorney (her philandering husband’s (CHRIS NOTH) old job). Meanwhile, as Diane (CHRISTINE BARANSKI) considers leaving Lockhart/Gardner to join Florrick/Agos, a major crises threatens to destroy the firm. And, while its hard to imagine that this season could produce the kind of jaw-dropping twist we saw last season, the premiere indicates that fans are in for some treats.

As Alicia Florrick, Emmy Award-winning JULIANNA MARGULIES brings an understated quality that allows her to say more with a ‘look’ than with a paragraph of dialog. During a recent press conference to promote the show, she talked about playing the role. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)


Season six of THE GOOD WIFE debuts tonight on CBS.

Currently in theaters, THE DROP is a gritty crime drama that centers on what happens when a clumsy armed robbery goes haywire at a money-laundering bar known as Cousin Marv’s and an investigation leads to a succession of secrets and lies being revealed. Directed by MICHAEL R. ROSKAM from a screenplay by DENNIS LEHANE, the film stars TOM HARDY, NOOMI RAPACE, JAMES GANDOLFINI, MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS and ELIZABETH RODRIGUEZ.

For better or worse, THE DROP will always hold a place in movie history as being the final big screen performance of JAMES GANDOLFINI (who died at the age of 52 on 6/19/13).

During a recent interview to promote the film, director ROSKHAM talked about how GANDOLFINI’S unexpected death affected the end result of THE DROP.

THE DROP is in theaters now.

_rbdave73dj1_hires23To call TUSK ‘quirky’ or ‘off-beat’ just wouldn’t do it justice. In a nutshell, the film is a dark horror dramedy that centers on a podcaster who disappears into the Canadian wilderness where he was conducting an interview with an old man with an incredible past. A mysterious seafarer, the old man has a fetish for walruses and decides to take his guest hostage and turn him into one.

Written and directed by notorious indie filmmaker KEVIN SMITH, the cast features JUSTIN LONG, GENESIS RODRIGUEZ, HALEY JOEL OSMENT and MICHAEL PARKS (as well as a swell cameo by JOHNNY DEPP).

Said to be the first in what SMITH is calling his TRUE NORTH TRILOGY, TUSK is a throwback to the kind of independent features he cut his teeth on. We sat down with SMITH a few days ago and he admitted this is the kind of project he’s most interested in. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO — WARNING: NSFW)


TUSK is in select theaters now.
