You Don’t Need To Be A Batman Fan To Fall For ‘Gotham’

_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.

Nerds Get Their Revenge In The New CBS Procedural ‘Scorpion’

_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.

Internet Powerhouse Tyler Oakley Teams With Best Pal Korey Kuhl For ‘Psycho Babble’

_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.

Tea Leoni Makes A Welcome Return To Television With ‘Madame Secretary’

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.
