Natasha Lyonne Can't Stop Dying in Russian Doll Trailer

Natasha Lyonne is stuck in a nightmare in the first official trailer for Netflix's Russian Doll.

The Orange is the New Black favorite plays Nadia on the upcoming series, an "anti-hero who finds that she is stuck in a loop. She is living the same night over and over again and can’t seem to get out of her own way. She’s troubled, but hopes she is one of the good guys."

How would you feel if you were the guest of honor at a seemingly inescapable party in New York City?

The trailer alone shows some of the creative ways in which Nadia's life comes to an end before restarting the day to try and find the right way out.

It's all very reminiscent of Tru Calling ... if anybody remembers that Fox series. Yes, it was canceled too soon.

Russian Doll was created by Lyonne alongside Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland,

Jason Priestley on His New Show as an Antidote to Dark TV, and Why He Didn’t Want to Revisit ‘90210’ — Turn It On Podcast
Don’t ask Jason Priestley about a “Beverly Hills, 90210” reboot. For one thing, it has already been done: The second “90210” aired on The CW from 2008 to 2013. And although Priestley returned to direct, he wasn’t interested in reviving his character and appearing on camera.

“I couldn’t figure out a reason why Brandon would still be hanging around there,” Priestley told IndieWire’s Turn It On. “He left. I couldn’t figure out why.”

Priestley has worked on plenty of TV and film since the O.G. “90210,” including series like “Tru Calling,” “Call Me Fitz” and “Haven.” But he’s also now a prolific director, working on both comedies like “Working the Engels” but also sci-fi shows like “Van Helsing” and “Dark Matter.”

Now he’s back on TV as the star of “Private Eyes,” a fun, light hearted procedural mystery drama from Canada that has made its way across the border on Ion.

“Musical Black Ops”: Castle and Buffy composer Robert Duncan talks soundtracks with Flickering Myth

Sean Wilson chats exclusively to multiple Emmy nominee Robert Duncan, veteran composer of shows as diverse as Castle, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Lie to Me, getting to the heart of the essential question: what makes a truly great soundtrack?

Robert, it’s a privilege to chat to you. To begin with, you were born into an extraordinary lineage of illustrious musicians – as I understand it, your great-grandfather composed music for silent movies, is that correct?

He did, yes, in London. He would take excerpts of classical pieces and pull out the pages of the applicable part and line them up on the music stands. He then had a little foot switch that connected to the lights on the musicians’ music stands. So he would step on the switch, the light would flicker and they would know to turn the page and start playing the chase music; then he would

Shadowhunters episode 3 review: Dead Man's Party

Despite a slight uptick in quality, Shadowhunters is still disappointingly far, far from the show it could have been...

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 Dead Man's Party

It’s not saying much, but this was the best episode of Shadowhunters so far. With most of the major characters introduced and most of the basic rules of the universe already established, there was a bit more breathing room for things to happen. And with most of the worst aspects of the show pushed discreetly out of sight, there was even time to have some fun.

So, again, we pick up pretty much exactly where the last episode left off, with Simon being abducted by vampires who think Clary knows where the Mortal Cup is and quite fancy nicking it for themselves. That sense of continuity is quite nice; it can be disconcerting to feel like characters in a TV

River episode 1 review

Stellan Skarsgård is haunted in Abi Morgan’s engrossing new BBC detective drama, River. Spoilers…

This review contains spoilers.

As a TV detective, you’re no-one in today’s world if you’re not a) haunted by your past, b) suffering from some form of psychological disorder, or c) Scandinavian. Enter Stellan Skarsgård’s John River, pulling an impressive triple whammy in Abi Morgan’s engrossing new BBC crime series.

While his peers are only figuratively haunted by dead partners and unsolved cases, Det. River literally sees dead people. They’re not quite ghosts—he doesn’t believe in ghosts—but rather Six Feet Under-style ‘manifests’ only visible to him. (Trauma-induced hallucinations is probably the technical term, but when was the last time you booked into a Lucky Voice booth with your trauma-induced hallucination and belted out a disco classic?)

River’s manifests are both pals and pests: former partner Det.

10 TV Shows That Are Somehow 10 Years Old

Fox

The same people who say a day is a long time in politics have also been overheard saying that ten years is a long time in television.

In 2005 the world had never heard of Facebook, the iPhone or Justin Bieber. The USA had never had a black President, Greece still had money, there were no new episodes of Friends and networks were desperate to find their next big hit.

They brutally culled shows including Everybody Loves Raymond, Andromeda, NYPD Blue, The Osbournes, Six Feet Under, Tru Calling, and Star Trek: Enterprise, which went straight into syndication but left some pretty big holes in the schedule.

So what shows did Fox, NBC, CBS, Comedy Central and others give debuts to a decade ago? Some of the most popular programmes in recent living memory. True, not all of them have managed to go the distance but they all made an impression

Where are the cast of Bring It On now? Here's what happened to Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku and the squad
15 years ago today, the Toros stepped out onto the football field and put some serious cheer back into the atmosphere. To steal a phrase from the film: Bring It On's the poo - so take a big whiff.

But what have Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku and the rest of the squad been cheering about since then? To mark the movie's birthday, we put down the pompoms and find out what they've been up to since.

Kirsten Dunst

A Hollywood star from the age of 12 thanks to her breakthrough role in Interview with the Vampire, Dunst's star was burning brightly when she led the Toros as Torrance Shipman. Two years later, she went on to land her biggest role as Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi's three Spider-man films.

In recent years, she's reinvented herself as a critical darling, winning Best Actress at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for Melancholia,

Stitchers: Did You Connect With ABC Family's Mind-Bending Procedural?

Eliza Dushku to Recur in Banshee Season 4

After being renewed for a fourth season by Cinemax in February, Banshee has been making the rounds with news of cast additions, such as Chris Coy and Matthew Rauch, who will both be series regulars in the show’s fourth season; Ana Ayora, who has signed on for an extensive Season 4 arc; and Casey Labow, who is set to recur on the series. And, as announced on Monday, joining Labow as a recurring player in Banshee Season 4 will be Eliza Dushku, who is set to play Agent Veronica Dawson, a character described by Deadline as “a tough, sexy and shockingly reckless FBI profiler with no shortage of personal demons who joins forces with Hood to hunt down a killer.” Dushku’s past TV credits include the Joss Whedon-created Fox series Dollhouse (which was cancelled after two seasons), recurring roles on both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, and the

Eliza Dushku is making the leap from slayer to slayer-hunter.

The Buffy alumna will recur in the upcoming fourth season of Cinemax’s Banshee, our sister site Deadline reports, playing Agent Veronica Dawson, a “sexy and shockingly reckless FBI profiler.”

Agent Dawson will reportedly team up with Lucas Hood (Antony Starr) to catch a serial killer. Of course, there’s a good chance her “personal demons” will make that task easier said than done.

In addition to Buffy, Dushku’s small-screen credits include roles on Torchwood: Web of Lies, Dollhouse and Tru Calling.

iZombie episode 2 review: Brother, Can You Spare A Brain?

Rose McIver shines as Liv in a solid, confident and exciting follow-up to iZombie's pilot episode...

This review contains spoilers.

1.2 Brother, Can You Spare A Brain?

Second episodes are always a bit tricky, especially in the soapy-procedural bracket iZombie belongs to, but re-establishing the premise doesn’t always have to be a drag. There are characters we’ve already met, a structure we’ve been introduced to and relationships stuck in one place by necessity but, as the show has proven with Brother, Can You Spare a Brain?, it can build on the foundation, rather than simply re-explain.

Hence Blaine (David Anders), a fellow zombie and someone who appears to be the series' first ongoing villain. He’s great for a number of very clear reasons, and he dominates episode two with snark, charm and menace that sets us up nicely for whatever shenanigans he plans to get up to

iZombie episode 1 review: Pilot

An undead, much more sharply written Tru Calling from the creator of Veronica Mars? Sign us up for The CW's latest series, iZombie...

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 Pilot

Zombies, like most other fictional monsters in popular culture, are often best when used as metaphors for recognisable human things. It’s why teen shows have been so quick to adopt a fantasy angle ever since Buffy The Vampire Slayer introduced the ‘high school is hell’ theme back in the late 90s.

Now, though, the trendy thing is to have your protagonist be the monster, and iZombie – Rob Thomas’ latest – sees the zombie sub-genre finally reach that crucial point in its cycle.

Our set-up is this – promising, over-achieving doctor Liv (Rose McIver) goes to a boat party that happens to be hit by a sudden zombie outbreak. She wakes up in a body-bag, realises she’s (un)dead, and we then pick

First Trailer for Rob Thomas' New CW Series iZOMBIE

Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas is back with a new show on The CW. iZombie is a witty, original take on the zombie psychic detective genre, and the first trailer for the series has just been unveiled.

To me, this looks a little like a mixture of Tru Calling and Veronica Mars, and with Thomas leading the charge as the executive producer, you can definitely feel that Mars vibe coming from this show. For fans who were disappointed with last year's much-hyped Veronica Mars film, this could be a cool way to recapture some of what we loved about Thomas' earlier series, but wrapped up and displayed in a new package.

Rose McIver (“Masters of Sex,” “Once Upon a Time”) stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out… until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy.
