Freeform’s newest TV series Dead of Summer premieres Tuesday June 28th at 9pm. Created by Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis, and Ian Goldberg of Once Upon a Time, Dead of Summer appears to follow Freeform’s traditional blueprint of putting young people in creepy situations (see also: Pretty Little Liars, Guilt, Shadowhunters, and Stitchers). In this instance, you guessed it, they’ll be trying to survive summer camp.
Last night I attended The Paley Center’s “Evening with UnREAL” event. In attendance was the series Co-Creator and Executive Producer Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, Executive Producer Carol Barbee, and several cast members including Shiri Appleby, Constance Zimmer, and B.J. Britt. In addition to the moderated panel portion of the evening, we were also treated to the first episode of the season two!
The Facebook ‘On This Day’ feature has been making me nostalgic for college and that feeling has only been amplified by the current graduation season. Between the throwback photos, status updates, and commencement decorations in every retail store I can’t also help but think about how college is portrayed on TV. (I am a TV addict after all.)
Arbor Day is this Friday, so in honor of this tree-hugging holiday, here’s ten memorable trees as seen on TV. To celebrate, why not fire up the DVD player, Netflix, or whatever you use and watch one of these shows. And then turn off the TV and go plant a tree. No seriously, that would probably be a better way to recognize the day.
The idea of having a go-to channel to find new TV shows is a waning experience from a bygone TV viewing era, but that doesn’t mean it’s not useful to know where you can find new and interesting TV shows. Your HBOs and AMCs are certainly good places to start, but there’s hundreds of channels out there, and VICELAND is one of them.
Like any other kid who grew up in the 90s, my TV diet mainly consisted of Nickelodeon, Saturday morning cartoons, ABC’s TGIF block of programming, and the occasional free preview of the Disney Channel. Needless to say most shows were filled with slime, hijinks, hugs, laugh-tracks, and catchphrases, but every now and then an episode would drop a real life truth bomb on you. Here’s five episodes that chipped away at my childhood innocence.
Earlier this week news broke that Nashville’s current showrunner would be replaced by Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick. Now on one hand this is good news for Nashville fans since it seems to indicate that a fifth season is likely; however, handing over the reins of a TV show can seriously alter the tone of a show, for better or worse.
