CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND

quote:

Rebecca Bunch (Rachel Bloom) is a successful, driven, and possibly crazy young woman who impulsively gives up everything – her partnership at a prestigious law firm and her upscale apartment in Manhattan – in a desperate attempt to find love and happiness in that exotic hotbed of romance and adventure: suburban West Covina, Calif. (it’s only two hours from the beach! Four in traffic). From CBS Television Studios, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend stars Rachel Bloom (“Robot Chicken”), who also serves as executive producer along with Aline Brosh McKenna (“The Devil Wears Prada”); and Marc Webb (“500 Days of Summer,” “The Amazing Spider-Man” films).

CONTAINMENT

quote:

When a mysterious and deadly epidemic breaks out in Atlanta, a vast urban quarantine is quickly enforced, forcing those stuck on the inside to fight for their lives while local and federal officials desperately search for a cure. Trying to keep the peace on the streets is police officer Lex Carnahan, who has quickly risen through the ranks of the Atlanta PD. But Lex’s job becomes even harder when he learns that his longtime girlfriend, Jana, and his best friend and fellow officer Jake, are trapped within the cordoned area. Also quarantined in viral ground zero is 17 year-old Teresa, who is eight months pregnant and now separated from her boyfriend on the other side; Katie Frank, an elementary school teacher now placed on lockdown with her entire class, including her young son; and CDC researcher Dr. Victor Cannerts, the doctor who initially made the controversial call to quarantine the area and is now racing to find a cure for the virus. On the outside, Dr. Sabine Lommers is leading the government efforts to contain the outbreak, and has asked for Lex’s help in enforcing the cordon – which grows increasingly difficult as the public trust deteriorates. And the public has reason to be wary, as journalist Leo begins unraveling a conspiracy, finding that something doesn’t add up in the official story being told. Torn apart from their loved ones, the survivors trapped within the cordon are fighting against not only fatal infection, but also isolation, fear, and the disintegration of society around them. But as they begin to gain each other’s trust, hope remains, and on either side of the cordon unlikely heroes will rise. Containment stars David Gyasi (“Interstellar”); Christina Moses (“Starship: Apocalypse,” “Starship: Rising”); Chris Wood (“The Vampire Diaries”); Kristen Gutoskie (“Beaver Falls”); Claudia Black (“The Originals,” “Farscape”); George Young (“Casualty”); Hanna Mangan Lawrence (“Spartacus: War of the Damned”); and Trevor St. John (“One Life to Live”). Based on the original Belgian series created by Carl Joos for Eyeworks, Containment is produced by My So-Called Company in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Julie Plec (“The Vampire Diaries,” “The Originals”) and David Nutter (“The Flash,” “Arrow”).

DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW

quote:

When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known? DC’S Legends Of Tomorrow stars Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”); Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” “Superman Returns”); Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”); Caity Lotz (“Arrow”); Ciarra Renee (“Pippin”); Franz Drameh (“Edge of Tomorrow”); with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”); and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”). Based on the characters from DC Comics, DC’S Legends Of Tomorrow is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”), Marc Guggenheim (“Arrow,” “Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”).

Have they said when The 100 is supposed to come back? Also, with the events of last night's Arrow finale I'm wondering if they're just going to keep Brandon Routh out of the picture until Legends starts up.

It'll be back midseason. January more than likely.


Also, first promo image for the Legends of Tomorrow.

Probably later today. But I doubt it'll be much of anything since they've not even started filming a single episode. They'll probably just make a teaser with the characters in it.

Captain Boomerang would have been great too, but I guess Suicide Squad made that off-limits.

As soon as the synopsis made it clear Rip's the lynchpin of the premise, everyone figured he would be snatching people before their deaths. Hell, maybe that's why it's just Stein, he grabs him right before he gets the Firestorm powers?

That would be weird though, if you are assembling a group of people to fight "an immortal thread" why would you save the old guy BEFORE gets all juiced up.

Also I hope they have a good reason why he doesn't get Arrow/Flash involved.

Not that I've heard.

quote:

Speaking of Supernatural, Pedowitz insisted that “we have no intent of (upcoming Season 11) being a last season” for the venerable show. “I’m a big believer and a big fan of the show, and as long the ratings hold and as long as the boys (stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) want to do it, we’ll do it.” The duo’s contracts are up at the end of next season.

There's word going around that there will be no public release for the trailer of Legends until after the Flash finale airs. But I can't find any confirmation on that.

Clearly The 100 returning mid-season just means the writers needed more time to figure out how Clarke is gonna "accidentally" murder the entire population of Somewhere, OtherPlace.

Yeah as a heads up the Legends of Tomorrow trailer very clearly spoils a cliffhanger from last night's Arrow (though the resolution isn't much of a shocker).

That seriously looks loving impressive for a CW show though. I wonder how Firestorm is gonna work since Robbie Amell is nowhere to be found in that trailer.

Not my fault they lied. The people involved said they don't even start production on the show at all until August and they had not filmed anything yet. Obviously they wanted to keep it a surprise.

That's the only place I've seen it referred to as a "tv movie". Everywhere else I've seen it referred to as a new series, and going by the schedule having it air from 8-9pm, that'd be a pretty short movie.

This is crazy that CW is putting out some of the best TV consistently. The 100 is probably one of the darkest shows outside of premium channels, Arrow has been uneven but is still solid, and the Flash is great fun. Containment is going to be a 100% better version of Helix, based on their quality of late.

IMDB lists failed pilots, which this was at Showtime, as TV movies. They just haven't updated with it being unexpectedly picked up by the CW.

My local CW station is no longer available on Dish (or, as my friend tells me, DirecTv). But that's kinda okay since it sucks. Their equipment is at least 20 years out of date and they still haven't gotten the whole HD thing down yet.

Green Arrow, Flash, Canary are legit members. Hell, in some instances those three are the original founders of the JL anyhow (Green Arrow was funding them in the background, admittedly).
