The Conversation coming to Tv

Posted in Movies, Tv News on August 9, 2008 by tvgeek


Francis Ford Coppola’s 1974 film ‘The Conversation’ is being turned into a TV show.

AMC who already produce Madmen a TV show set in the 1960s will now have another set in the 1970s.

The show will center on surveillance expert Harry Caul, who was played by Gene Hackman.

Producer Tony Krantz has been pushing for the show to be made for a decade, but has only now found a good fit and partner in AMC, which is quickly rising in the ranks of cable networks for well-produced original programming.

It sounds amazing, Mad Men has certainly opened the door for these kind of shows.

Critics slam "Gossip Girl"

Posted in Tv News with tags , , on August 9, 2008 by tvgeek


Hit U.S. television show “Gossip Girl,” which follows the lives of students at an elite Manhattan private school, has been likened by critics to “Sex and the City” for teenagers

While it is not a big TV hit it does as well as One Tree Hill which in my opinion sets a better example for teenagers.

Fishburne May Take Over on CSI

Posted in Tv News with tags , , , on August 9, 2008 by tvgeek

With Gil Grissom (William Peterson) leaving the CSI crew, the biggest mystery for the series upcoming season is who will be taking his place as Head Investigator. The answer may have come in the person of Laurence Fishburne. Although both CBS and Paramount deny any casting decisions have yet been made, Fishburne’s name is being mentioned as having been in talks for the job.

With William Peterson leaving CSI, the tv network CBS is rumoured to be holding talks with a number of actors for the role. Laurence Fishburn’s name is being mentioned.

I think the part would really suit him and would spice up the show a little.
