Don Johnson is set to reprise his title role in a revival of Nash Bridges, which is in the early stages of development at USA Network, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The revival is currently slated to be a two-hour special, but producers hope it’ll serve as a backdoor pilot for a full series relaunch.

The original Nash Bridges was created by Carlton Cuse (Lost) and ran for six seasons — a total of 122 episodes — on CBS, between March 1996 and May 2001. Cuse, who currently has a deal at ABC Studios, is not involved with the revival, which is being spearheaded

Movie Review – Trial by Fire (2019)

Trial by Fire, 2019.

Directed by Edward Zwick

Starring Jack O’Connell, Laura Dern, Emily Meade, Jade Pettyjohn, Rhoda Griffis, Blair Bomar, McKinley Belcher III, Catherine Carlen, Noah Lomax, Whitney Goin, Anthony Reynolds, Blake Lewis, Jeff Perry, Chris Coy, Wayne Pére, and Carlos Gómez

Synopsis:

The tragic and controversial story of Cameron Todd Willingham, who was executed in Texas for killing his three children after scientific evidence and expert testimony that bolstered his claims of innocence were suppressed.

Trial by Fire makes a strong argument that while Cameron Todd Willingham was an abuser and mentally unstable, he did not murder his own three babies in an arson-related incident involving the family home. Subsequently, the state of Texas murdered an innocent man via the death penalty, ignoring this new evidence from a specialty doctor making use of emerging ideas and technology to get to the bottom of what really happened on that tragic night.

“Trial By Fire” Has Righteous Anger About Capital Punishment

The death penalty is among the most controversial and debated about laws in American politics, and even worldwide. There are passionate cases made on both sides, arguing for or against capital punishment and the right for the state to take a life. To be sure though, there’s hypocrisy as well, especially when you look at how conservative lawmakers view capital punishment/the death penalty in relation to their feelings on abortion/a woman’s right to choose. Moreover, the rush to judgment in some cases is as infuriating as anything else in the matter. The righteous indignation over that fuels the new film Trial by Fire, opening this week. This film is a true life drama/biopic, centering on the controversial and ultimately tragic case of Cameron Todd Willingham (Jack O’Connell). When the home he lives in with his wife Stacy Willingham (Emily Meade) burns down, killing their three young daughters,

Film Review: ‘Trial by Fire’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Trial by Fire’
Cameron Todd Willingham burned his three daughters alive, at least according to the state of Texas, which sentenced him to death in 1992. In the decades since, Willingham’s trial has been relitigated in the court of public opinion by the New Yorker, whose evisceration of testimony by arson experts gives “Trial by Fire” its title. The case has also become a cause célèbre for justice advocates sifting through convictions to find a case where the American government executed an innocent man — Willingham was put to death in 2004 — a travesty they would take all the way to the Supreme Court.

Edward Zwick’s take on the tragedy is a linear biopic, a film more comfortable with time stamps than in burning down the judicial system. “Trial by Fire” opens two days before Christmas in Corsicana, Texas, as 23-year-old Willingham (Jack O’Connell) flees his flaming house, barefoot, shirtless and screaming for

Krista Vernoff and Elisabeth R. Finch (‘Grey’s Anatomy’) on making TV history and powerful consent episode [Exclusive Video Interview]

“It’s kind of bigger than we can wrap our heads around,” admits “Grey’s Anatomy” showrunner and executive producer Krista Vernoff about making TV history earlier this season by surpassing “ER’s” record as the longest-running medical drama ever. Gold Derby recently sat down with Vernoff and co-executive producer/writer Elisabeth R. Finch to discuss this milestone accomplishment as well as the show’s powerful consent episode, titled “Silent All These Years,” that some fans are calling one of the best in 15 seasons. Watch our exclusive video interview with Vernoff and Finch above.

Jack O'Connell in Trailer for 'Trial by Fire' from Director Edward Zwick

"There's no arson, there's no crime!" Roadside Attractions has debuted an official trailer for a true story drama titled Trial by Fire, the latest film from acclaimed director Edward Zwick. This premiered at the Telluride Film Festival last year, but not at any other fests. Trial by Fire tells the tragic and controversial story of Cameron Todd Willingham, who was executed in Texas for killing his three children after scientific evidence and expert testimony bolstering his claims of innocence were suppressed. It's an upsetting, moving story being told here by some incredibly talented actors. Jack O'Connell stars as Cameron, who looks a lot like Anton Yelchin in this, and the cast includes Laura Dern as a woman who fights for his freedom, plus Emily Meade, McKinley Belcher III, Chris Coy, Joshua Mikel, Jason Douglas, Jeff Perry, and Jade Pettyjohn. Well, this looks pretty damn good, with O'Connell giving yet another stellar performance.

Roadside Attractions Picks Up Telluride Film ‘Trial By Fire’, Sets Spring Release

  • Deadline
Roadside Attractions has obtained the U.S. distribution rights to the Edward Zwick-directed true-crime drama Trial by Fire and has slated a release date for May 17. Based on a 2009 article in The New Yorker by David Grann, the film starring Jack O’Connell, Laura Dern, Emily Meade and Jeff Perry premiered at last year’s Telluride Film Festival, .

Adapted by Precious scribe Geoffrey Fletcher, the Texas story centers on the unlikely bond between an imprisoned death row inmate (O’Connell) and a mother of two from Houston (Dern) who fights mightily for his freedom. Cameron Todd Willingham, a poor, uneducated heavy metal devotee with a violent streak and a criminal record, is convicted of arson-related triple homicide in 1992. During his 12 years on death row, Elizabeth Gilbert uncovers questionable methods and illogical conclusions in his case and battles with the state to expose suppressed evidence that could save him.

Grey's Anatomy Is Digging Into Its History For Emotional Reunion

Grey's Anatomy Is Digging Into Its History For Emotional Reunion
Grey's Anatomy is, surprise surprise, about to get extra emotional.  Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) has some of the most complicated parent issues of any character on TV, and her father Thatcher (Jeff Perry) has been a loose end for seasons. His last appearance on the show was 2011, back when Lexie (Chyler Leigh) was still alive. Meredith found out through Richard earlier this season that Thatcher was ill and only had a few weeks to live. He was in hospice care, and Meredith avoided going to see him until tomorrow night's episode, when she finally does. And trust us, they've got a lot of things to talk about.  The show tweeted a sneak peek of the episode, featuring Meredith taking a deep...

Grey's Anatomy Promo: Thatcher Returns!

Apparently, everyone knows that Meredith is in a love triangle now. 

On the extended promo for the rest of the season, we catch glimpses of what the series has in store for the remainder of Grey's Anatomy Season 15 and Meredith's love life is featured prominently. 

The debate over who should win Meredith's heart (if anyone at all) continues, but Meredith seems to be having fun with both of the guys. 

For one, she's quick to tell DeLuca that there could be something between her and Link and that she isn't giving the Ortho god false hope. DeLuca is more confident than we've ever seen him before, but he may be too confident if he thinks there is no competition for Meredith's affections.
