News Briefs: Check Out the (Boring) New Poster for Game Of Thrones Season 3


SPRING IS COMING AND THAT'S WHEN WINTER IS ALSO COMING NEWS

... HBO's Game of Thrones! Like I need to say anything more. Here's the first Season 3 "poster."

(Sorry it was hecka boring. March 31, 2013 is the Season 3 premiere date. If you're European, swap the "31" and the "3" to understand.)


BUSINESS TIME

... Andrew Miller, who handled the TV adaptation of The Secret Circle, has sold a pair of projects, one to ABC and one to Fox. ABC gets SAGA, a high-concept drama about a popular fantasy author who disappears into the world she created, leading her fans to travel there to help her. Umm, yeah. High-concept, indeed. Fox gets a drama about a pair of families on opposite ends of the cattle trade in Texas. I'd say Miller has range. [Deadline Hollywood]

... NBC is developing a drama called George Washington, about some guy who used to be president or something? The series will show both sides of Mr. Dollar Bill, the mythic man we all know and the seedy adulterer who bedded his BFF's wife. The network is leaving out the part where he helped Abraham Lincoln kill vampires, though. [Deadline Hollywood]

... NBC is developing iQuit, a comedy following the ups and downs of a group of post-grads with the common experience of the internet affecting their lives. For example, one of the five friends is a jillionaire from creating a top-selling app, one is a YouTube celebrity without any real celebrity perks, and one had his life ruined on Facebook. Young people love the internet, right? [Deadline Hollywood]

... TV Land has renewed The Soul Man for Season 2. For those who aren't cultured enough to know, The Soul Man is a spin-off of Hot In Cleveland and stars Cedric the Entertainer. [TV Guide]

... Lifetime has ordered the docu-reality series Teen Trouble, in which a bunch of crazy teens will have their lives full of boozin', sexin', druggin', and havin' fun interrupted by interventions. So embarrassing, mom! [Lifetime via press release]


CASTING NEWS

... Rumer Willis, the spawn of Bruce and Demi, will guest-star on an upcoming episode of Hawaii Five-0. She'll play a new love interest for Masi Oka's character. Sorry Masi, but this is what you get paid the big bucks for. [EW]

... How To Make It in America's Bryan Greenberg has signed on for an upcoming USA pilot based on an Elmore Leonard story. He'll play an aspiring politician in Miami who marries a Colombian woman to win the Latino vote, but learns she's on the run from her troubled past. One thing leads to another, yada yada yada, and so forth and so forth, and next thing you know they're like actually in REAL love. Only on television! [THR]

... Modern Family has booked Billy Dee Williams to play Billy Dee Williams, which is exactly how it should be. Colt 45. [EW]

... Meryl Streep's other daughter, Grace Gummer (Mamie Gummer currently stars in The CW's Emily Owens, M.D.), will play a reporter in the next season of The Newsroom. [Deadline Hollywood]

if they fuck up this season,I am done with watching any more of GoT. I will still read books of course:D...those are the ones that are truly great(waiting on new book to come out)
Season 2 was ok,but not great. They need to stick to books and not do their own thing. And not enough episodes for a book of that caliber. 10 is for sure not enough!

In the first two “sneak peek” episodes of Teen Trouble, the host sent kids to "troubled teen" programs that have many online accounts of abuse. The first one was Copper Canyon Academy, the second was Outback Therapeutic Expeditions. Both are owned by Aspen Education Group, who is currently being sued by over 30 people who say they were abused in a similar “troubled teen” program. See www.CCASurvivors.com to see how kids are treated there!

At least I was warned about the poster being boring in the header.

I guess "high-concept" is the new Hollywood word for "bat-shit-crazy-concept".

Can't wait for iQuit to be sued by Apple.

Isn't it basically everywhere else in the world that has the dd/mm/yyyy system except north america. This is due to the archaic continuation of the imperial system I assume.

It's sad that Game of Thrones is so far off but I anticipated it would come out around that time so I'm not surprised, just disappointed.

The Soul Man is an unfortunate waste of Cedric the Entertainer's talents.

All the news are really boring this time. None of them inspires me to make cruel jokes about the fate of terrible shows or actors.

Game of Thrones can best be appreciated by we Southern-Hemispherers. Each year the new season starts in Autumn and we decree Winter Is Coming. Then the last couple of episodes air in Winter, tada! It's the ultimate Westerosian experience.

Judging by the font of the numbers and the placement of the three swords, I'd say Tyrion is going to continue being a clever, badass motherf***er.
