Rideback TV Incubator Sets Writers And Mentors For Kickoff Year
The Rideback TV Incubator, the new inclusion-focused writers program launched in February by Dan Lin’s Rideback and Mrc, has selected its writers and mentors for the inaugural 2019 session.

The incubator, whose core mission is to creatively and financially support writers from different backgrounds as they create their own series for cable or streaming services, is an eight-month paid program aimed at TV writers who have previously been staffed on series and want to create their own dramatic show.

The goal is to create a market-ready, straight-to-series project, which if they go forward will be produced by Rideback with financing and other support by Mrc, which is providing funding for the program. Rideback and Mrc will jointly bring projects to market, with an option of adding other elements. The writers will be set as executive producer/writers and mentors as non-writing executive producers.

This year’s list of writers: Iden Baghdadchi

Former ‘The Walking Dead’ Boss Speaks Out on Sex Scene Safety After ‘Smilf’ Controversy

The last few weeks have brought some major developments in how intimate scenes are filmed for television. Recently, HBO announced that it would be hiring an intimacy coordinator to oversee sex scenes on its various productions. On Monday, a report detailed alleged questionable behavior by writer/director Frankie Shaw on the set of her Showtime series “Smilf.” (Deadline reported on Monday that Showtime still plans to go ahead with the planned January premiere date of Season 2 of the series.)

Former “The Walking Dead” executive producer Glen Mazzara is convening a discussion of these issues, slated for next summer’s Atx Festival, which will be held during the second weekend of June 2019.

In response to Monday’s report in a Twitter thread, Mazzara collected details of the panel (previously announced when the Atx lineup was revealed in November) and thoughts on what he sees as the industry’s inadequate preparation for these kinds of scenes.

Lauren Ambrose and Robbie Amell Return For The X-Files Season 11 and Will Be Joined Barbara Hershey

The casting news for The X-Files Season 11 continues to roll in with the announcement that Robbie Amell (The Flash) and Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) have jumped on board to reprise their roles as Agents Miller and Einstein. 

The two characters were introduced in Season 10 and they seemed like they were the newer younger versions of Agents Mulder and Scully, only they weren't as entertaining or as charming. I thought the addition of the new characters were fine, and I think it will be good to get to know them a little better. 

Also, legendary actress Barbara Hershey is the latest new actress to join Chris Carter's eleventh season of the series! Hershey has been a ton of films and TV shows since the 1960s. Some of her more recent roles include parts in Insidious, Black Swan, Once Upon a Time, and Damien. She a hell of a talented

It’s truly unfair to cast aspersions before a character has even uttered one line, but check out this new X-Files casting and tell us you don’t get Diana Fowley vibes, Ok?

Barbara Hershey will recur on Season 11 of the Fox sci-fi series, our sister site Deadline reports. Her character, Erika Price, is “a powerful figure who represents a mysterious organization.” And while yes, that could describe a whole lot of people who’ve crossed Mulder and Scully’s paths in the past, there’s something about this one — maybe it’s the hair? — that brings to mind the slippery and rather untrustworthy Ms.

The Dark Tower TV Series to be Helmed By Former The Walking Dead Showrunner

  • Cinelinx
While the Dark Tower may be having a rough go with critics, there is still a TV series in the works at Sony and they've announced a pretty amazing hiring! Come inside for more!

All day today, you've likely been bombarded with movie reviews for The Dark Tower, saying it's terrible, don't see it, burn the witch, whatever it is most angry reviewers say now and again. While that's been the general consensus with most reviews, unless you read our more Down-to-Earth review (shameless plug), there is a TV series still in the works at Sony and they're not letting a few not-so favorable reviews slow them down.

According a report by THR, Sony has hired the former showrunner for The Walking Dead, Glen Mazzara, to have the same title for The Dark Tower TV series.

The Dark Tower TV Series Lines Up Glen Mazzara as Showrunner

With The Dark Tower opening in theaters this weekend, moviegoers will be transported to Mid-World on the big screen, but the seminal Stephen King book series is making some progress on the small screen as well, with a showrunner now set.

According to THR, Glen Mazzara (The Walking Dead, Damien) is set to serve as showrunner for The Dark Tower TV series from Media Rights Capital and Sony Pictures Television. The series is currently in the development stages, as it still needs to find a network to call home, but it's expected to comprise 10–13 episodes and filming could begin as early as 2018 if things move forward (The Dark Tower's box office performance could be a factor in whether or not the series comes to fruition).

An "origin story" of sorts, The Dark Tower TV series is expected to include Idris Elba as Roland The Gunslinger, Dennis Haysberg as Roland's father,

Glen Mazzara and Len Wiseman Developing Sin City TV Series

We've seen Frank Miller's Sin City comic books come to life on the big screen in the 2005 and 2014 film adaptations that Miller co-directed with Robert Rodriguez, but now a TV series adaptation is in the works at The Weinstein Company (TWC) / Dimension, with two big names working on the project.

According to Deadline, Glen Mazzara is writing a TV series adaptation of the Sin City Dark Horse comics, with Len Wiseman set to direct. Stephen L’Heureux (whose producing credits include Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) is on board the series as a producer, along with Miller, Mazzara, Wiseman, Bob Weinstein, and Harvey Weinstein.

Deadline reports that although the TV series is expected to follow Miller's comics, it will also feature new characters and stories against the neo-noir backdrop of Sin City, all while being a "far departure from the films."

‘Alias’ Reunion, ‘Parks and Recreation’ Screening Party Highlight New Additions to Atx Television Festival
If you’ve been missing Sydney Bristow, better book a ticket to Austin, TX. The Atx Television Festival announced today it will be hosting an “Alias” writers’ room reunion featuring many of the show’s long-time scribes, including Ken Olin, Lawrence Trilling, Sarah Caplan, Monica Breen, Jeff Pinkner, Andre Nemec, and Josh Appelbaum.

Creator J.J. Abrams has yet to be confirmed, but additional panelists will be announced at a later date. Last year, the Atx Festival hosted a writers’ room reunion for “The O.C.” that included creator Josh Schwartz.

Also announced this afternoon was a “Parks and Recreation” community screening. For the first five seasons of the festival, the Austin-based event celebrated an Austin-based show: “Friday Night Lights.” But last year marked the final tailgate party / community screening for the beloved series, and festival programmers found a more than fitting replacement in “Parks and Recreation.”
