The force was with the MTV Movie Awards tonight as Star Wars: The Force Awakens took home the statue for Movie of the Year. The latest installment of the saga beat out Avengers: Age of Ultron, Creed, Deadpool, Straight Outta Compton, and Jurassic World among MTV’s viewers (obviously this ain’t the Oscars). The MTV Movie Awards were taped tonight in Burbank on the WB lot, though those of us who weren’t there will have to wait for tomorrow night at 8 PM when an edited…

You would have thought Sleepy Hollow (0.7/3) was The Walking Dead the way major characters were being killed off this season and last night’s Season 3 finale was the showstopper. No word if the fantasy procedural is coming back for a fourth season but it certainly went out with some traction on Friday. Unsurprisingly down 50% from its Season 2 finale, which was on Monday February 23, 2015 and followed a strong Gotham, last night’s SH saw a rise of 17% among adults 18-49…

SPOILER WARNING: The events of tonight’s episode of Sleepy Hollow are discussed in detail below. The show’s renewal fate has not yet been decided, but it seems the producers of Fox’s Sleepy Hollow are preparing for the possibility that season 3 will be its last: for the second week in a row, a major character has been killed off, permanently. This time, it’s one of the show’s two main characters, as the closing moments of tonight’s episode saw Detective Abbie Mills…

Danielle Claman Gelber, EVP and head of development for Dick Wolf’s Wolf Entertainment, is leaving the company after almost 5 years. She is launching her own eponymous production company, which will have a first-look deal with NBC. “Danielle was an important member of the team as we developed Chicago Fire,” Wolf said. “Lightning struck and we were off to the races with a hugely successful brand. With her passion for quality scripted projects, this is a logical and smart…

EXCLUSIVE: From the DEA to superhero nemesis, Boyd Holbrook has stepped to the other side of the law. The Narcos star has signed on as the lead villain opposite Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart in Fox’s Wolverine 3, I’ve learned. Holbrook will play a relentless, calculating and intense head of security for a global enterprise who is set against Jackman’s clawed Wolverine/Logan hero. The CAA-repped actor’s deal was just completed on the film, which is gearing up for a May…

McHale will play AIDS activist Bobbi Campbell. Walsh…

Based on the 2012 Turkish series Suskunlar, NBC‘s Game Of Silence is a taut and ultimately satisfying thriller series that is all about payback and the cost it brings.

Adapted for a Stateside audience
