ANATOMY OF AN UPFRONT – FOX 2012

The network upfronts have been around for as long as I can remember and, early in my career, I also got to participate in a couple of them.  For any avid TV fan, though, they are a fun presentation with lots of stars and clips of old shows and new shows and with a bit of some boring stuff in the middle – you know, just like the Emmy Awards, The Golden Globes and every other awards show you can think of (aka The Oscars).  For those who have never had the opportunity to experience a network upfront – either in person or via video streaming – let’s take a look at yesterday’s FOX Upfronts.

5 Great Things About CWs The Vampire Diaries And a Couple That Bite

1. The Visuals
 
CW’s The Vampire Diaries offers viewers a delightful feast for the eye. From dim hospital hallways to foggy, crow-infested graveyards, the sets are both creepy and beautiful, while the cinematography makes nice use of shadow and light. The cast, too, is predictably, yet pleasantly attractive. Vamp brothers Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) are fairly ogle-worthy, while Elena (Nina Dobrev) is darkly lovely.

NYCC 2009 Joss Whedon Tahmoh Penikett Round Table Interview

 

It was with much anticipation I approached the final day of New York Comic Con 2009.  Not only because this was the day that covered almost all of the television shows that I follow, but primarily because this was the day that Joss Whedon would be there to discuss his newest project, DOLLHOUSE.  Oh, and it didn’t hurt that one of the coolest (and hottest) actors from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and the aforementioned DOLLHOUSE, Tahmoh Penikett, would also be attending.  I was really curious to hear what Mr. Whedon had to say about his newest production, since there had been so many conflicting stories about how the show was developing.  I was hoping for some in depth discussion of the arc of the series and the issues that would be tackled in the storylines.  I wanted to know what Joss Whedon, someone who is known for his strong, proactive female characters, was going to do with a story about women (and men) who have their personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with any number of new personas – personas that are hired by the wealthy, powerful and connected to become whomever the client wants or needs them to be.

Well, Mr. Whedon did not disappoint.  At the round table interviews, he dove right in and discussed all of the above and more with the usual Joss anecdotes and humor – and funny voices to boot.
