Wizard Of Oz Timur Bekmambetov
From bullet curving assassins to presidential vampire hunters, Timur Bekmambetov has covered a wide range of novelty characters. The director, who got his big break with the fantasy-themed “Night Watch” series, has never been the type to shy away from an outlandish idea. That’s why it’s not a huge surprise that he's is teaming up with SyFy, the house built from outlandish ideas.

Young Doctor's Notebook Jon Hamm Daniel Radcliffe
C'mon, surely. The picture above was one that passed across our retinas around about a year ago, and for many it came blissfully free of context. For those of us in the U.K., however, it was actually followed by a TV miniseries, “A Young Doctor's Notebook,” about the experiences of a country doctor in revolutionary Russia. Jon Hamm played the older version of Daniel Radcliffe's young doctor, looking back on the experiences of his callow self.

NBC has been a punching bag lately, and not without good reason. The one-time kings of network ratings have tumbled from their dominance of Must See TV Thursday to pretty much For The Love Of God Watch Us On Any Night Please TV. And while NBC's past found them bringing massive, game-changing comedies like "Seinfeld," "Cheers," and "Friends" to air, is cutting-edge drama going to define them moving forward? This year alone they defied all expectations and impressed both critics and audiences with "Hannibal," a richer than expected and very fresh take on the character. And next year, will "Believe" join its ranks?

If there is one thing "Game Of Thrones" fans have learned over three seasons: no one is safe. It would be best advised if you're newly checking out the HBO smash show that you don't get too attached to any particular character, because they could be dead before you know it. And we're not even going to get into The Red Wedding.... In short, the time could run out on any character at any moment, but now it's time to take a pause and remember those that have fallen before the next season of "Game Of Thrones."

Well, while die hard "The Simpsons" fans have already been told they're going to have to wait at least 10-15 years for another big screen outing, the show continues to soldier on, recently wrapping up its 24th season. But it looks like the show is still trying to surprise, and in a move we thought would never happen, it's going to crossover with another Fox animated hit, that owes its success to the Springfield family.

Watch: Ricky Gervais Is A David Bowie Impersonator In 1999 Comedy Pilot 'Golden Years'

It’s always fascinating to see a famous performer in their more formative years. For Ricky Gervais, his formative years were rather brief, as he had his mainstream television debut in 1999. That’s two years before “The Office” first aired on the BBC, when his career subsequently exploded. Nevertheless, it’s very interesting to see where the comedian got his start. Gervais got his first big break in a one-off for Channel 4’s “Comedy Lab,” which is a program that showcases comedy pilots. Gervais’ show, co-written with Stephen Merchant, was called “Golden Years” and, thankfully for us, the entire episode is available online.

It looks like we really need to finally catch up with this show. Only two seasons old, "American Horror Story" is becoming a titan. Last year, the show earned 17 Emmy nominations (going on to win 2) and this year, it has matched that figure once again.

Back in January, it was reported that indie directing duo, Jay and Mark Duplass (“Jeff, Who Lives At Home”) were working on a half-hour comedy for HBO entitled “Togetherness.” The series details the trials and tribulations of two couples forced to live under the same roof; its humor deriving from the real-life problems within a relationship. News on the series cooled down after that with snippets of casting announcements being the norm. Back in March it was confirmed that Amanda Peet would be playing a lead role next to confirmed stars Melanie Lynskey, and Duplass regular Steve Zissis.
