Roma Downey, the executive producer behind the upcoming 12 part series "A.D. The Bible Continues," has described the project, a sequel to 2013's "The Bible" miniseries, as "Game of Thrones meets The Bible."

"In 2013 we brought you 'The Bible,' in 2014 we brought you 'Son of God' and now it's 2015 and we're about to launch on network television 'A.D. The Bible Continues,'" said Downey, who is co-producing the series alongside her husband, Mark Burnett. more >>
It seems that the revival of the crime drama series "Twin Peaks" is in danger of not happening. Despite Showtime's nine-episode order of the series' reboot last October 2014, the show's creator David Lynch recently made some disturbing statements about his involvement in the show's revival.
At his new exhibit "Between Two Worlds" in a Queensland Art Gallery, he spoke about the show's development and said that "There are complications." In another interview in Australia, as reported in Esquire, he said that he has not officially "returned yet" and that they are still "working on the contract."
Showtime was quick to counter the impression that the reboot is not happening. In a report in Entertainment Weekly, an insider from the network said that this was not the case. The network reportedly has in their hands all the scripts for the nine episodes from Mark Frost and David Lynch. They have also signed on Kyle Machlachlan to reprise his role as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper in the series' revival. The insider said that "Everything is moving forward and everybody is crazy thrilled and excited." He also said that what they were going through with David Lynch was merely part of the "pre-production process." more >>
