Eli Roth Jesus Demon
While most moviegoers found the logical and incomprehensible limits of pairing an iconic figure to a wacky occupation this past year with “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” and “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," The History Channel has spotted new potential in the idea. Once the host to actual fact-based programming, the cable network now aims to expand upon its massively successful miniseries of “The Bible," by taking the same general concepts and adding—what else?—an appropriately bizarre supernatural twist.

With so many projects on the go at once, perhaps it's not surprising to hear Martin Scorsese share the following sentiment: "... I’ve never been on vacation. I began with my wife Helen. And with my daughter Francesca, who’s turning fourteen. Now I’m taking a break for a week, a week and a half. We might go and visit my wife’s family in Maine. But normally no, I don’t go on vacation. I work, I read, I go to dinner with friends, I listen to music," the director told Swide magazine as part of a wide ranging interview. But of course, it wouldn't be a discussion without talk of some of the many projects that are keeping him busy.

Despite the dead-on-arrival 2010 film, it seems “The Wolfman” is being revived for the small screen, thanks in no small part to successful shows like the FOX show “Sleepy Hollow,” NBC’s “Dracula” or any of the other dozens of vampire-centric, fairy tale-esque, horror-tinged shows currently on air.

True Detective Matthew McConaughey & Woody Harrelson
Bubblin' up out of the bayou come three more teasers for HBO's January series “True Detective," and we are pretty darn excited for this show right here. Two of the clips will introduce you to our leading men: Detectives Cohle (Matthew McConaughey, in the glorious middle of a spectacular career resurrection, as we recently noted) and Hart (Woody Harrelson, in no need whatsoever of a resurrection, thank you very much) as, respectively, a whiskery old misanthrope and “a regular guy with a big-ass dick.”

Turn Jamie Bell
Can wigs and muskets replace meth labs and Heisenberg? AMC is still trying to figure out what will fill the monumental gap left behind by "Breaking Bad." Oh sure, there's the Saul Goodman spinoff show but you can't put all your money on one horse. "Low Winter Sun" rode into the fall season on a wave of hype only to underwhelm, with its chances of a second season still hanging in the balance (and looking bleaker each day). But can "Turn" uh, turn things around?

With TV the new home for ambitious entertainment that can also be financially lucrative and critically acclaimed, it's hardly a surprise that the Weinstein boys are making a play into that arena. In fact, the seeds were planted a few years ago when Harvey struck a deal with the new owners of Miramax to develop TV projects out of their old movies, and it's now starting to bear fruit. This past summer, a "Scream" TV series got the the thumbs up and now a couple more shows that originated as movies on the Dimension label are getting the episodic treatment.

While it's been two months since "Breaking Bad" said goodbye and Walter White's fate was sealed, that ending is still being talked about. In particular, creator/writer Vince Gilligan has been sharing his process, revealing the harsher finale they didn't use and the alternate ideas they kicked around before arriving on the final path they would take. And it speaks to how compelling these characters were that folks continue to wonder their fate, and in particular Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman, who seemingly drives away to hard earned freedom ... or does he?
