Even though AMC cancelled The Killing, they have decided to change their mind and bring it back. According to Variety neither the network or the studio will confirm the news, but the show runner and the executive producer have returned to work to start working on season 3. The once cancelled show is expected to be back on AMC in May and then Netflix will post it afterwards. Although negotiations have not been finalized with the online movie source.
Even though I gave up on the show after season 1, I always love stories where an axed show gets a second life!
BTW I wonder how many more shows Netflix can and will save. Maybe they can bring Last Resort or Partners back to life?
The two awwwdorable twins from Raising Hope dress up for Tuesdays episode on Fox at 8p and even though Rylie & Baylie Crecut have scary faces on they are still so freaking cute! Don’t you just want to eat them up?
Carrie Underwood is going to play Maria Von Trapp in a live version of The Sound of Music next Christmas on NBC that is produced by the people who are bringing us Smash and this year’s Oscars.
The network released a statement to TVLine saying:
â€œWeâ€™re thrilled to be presenting the Broadway version of The Sound of Music live. And having Carrie Underwood as the star brings it to a new generation who will fall in love with it for the first time, as many millions of people already have. Itâ€™s a particular joy to us as producers to see this amazing artist stretch into new territory with this classic musical.â€
As much as I love Carrie Underwood the singer, I think she is a boring actress and won’t be able to do justice for the iconic role. Do you think she has the chops to do it?
Next week on The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert is having his dream week. That’s because it is Hobbit Week on his Comedy Central show at 11:30p. He will be interviewing Sir Ian McKellan (Gandalf; 12/3), Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins; 12/4), director Peter Jackson (12/5) and Andy Serkis (Gollum; 12/6) and you know he will be trying to get as much information out of them as possible. Granted he probably knows more about the movie then they do.
So you have to tune in to see Colbert be happier about something more than a Republican in the top position. I am sure he will be so cute as he talks to all of the about the movie that comes out on December 14th and stars Stephen Colbert…in a very tiny role!
Legendary actor Dick Van Dyke was on Conan yesterday and the TBS late night host asked him if it was true that before Johnny Carson hosted The Tonight Show, he was up for the role of Rob Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show (obviously the show would’ve had a different name had it happened). He said yes it was true that Carson was considered for the role, but for whatever reason it didn’t work out. Then the Mary Poppins actor said, “Thank G-d it turned out the way it did because I would’ve been rotten on The Tonight Show.” Without hesitation Conan O’Brien said, “Oh, that job’s easy!” And everyone rightfully got big laugh!
BTW as a huge fan of The Dick Van Dyke Show, I am so happy things turned out the way it did. I seriously can’t and don’t want to picture the classic sitcom any other way.
