Daniel Craig and Showtime are teaming up for a new project based on the Jonathan Franzen novel, ‘Purity‘. From Showtime’s description:  Purity is a morally complex story of youthful idealism, extreme loyalty and cold-blooded murder. Franzen’s intricately plotted novel is populated by characters both hungry for the truth and desperate to hide it. From Stasi offspring to Oakland anarchists, Franzen tracks his characters’ landscapes as varied as East Berlin, the Bolivian jungle, East Harlem walk-ups, and the California Redwoods. Purity is at once supremely ambitious in scope and intensely intimate in its treatment of character – a decades-spanning tragicomedy that builds to a contemporary climax, even simpler, ‘Purity‘ is the journey of a girl who joins an activist group and begins a world-wide search for her father.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Showtime is getting into the Belushi business finally. Sure, there are a couple of biopics that are in the works for John Belushi, but this is an official feature length documentary about the iconic actor. Showtime has brought on filmmakers R.J.Cutler and John Battsek to make the documentary. Their resume includes ‘Searching for Sugar Man‘ and ‘The September Issue‘, so not exactly lightweights here.

The hopeful series is taking an in-depth look at the high finance world and the eventual sparring of two of its heavyweights, U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades and the hedge fund king Bobby “Axe” Axelrod.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 Cameron Crowe has a background steeped in music and on occasion, he pulls that background to the forefront and weaves it into the tapestry of a new project in a skillful way. One of his premiere films, ‘Almost Famous‘ gave us an inside peek at what it would be like to be hired by none other than Rolling Stone to go on tour with a rock band and experience the highs and lows of it all. With groupies, drugs, sex and of course, rock and roll, there is more than enough fodder to inspire writing of all kinds.

TV has been mining their company film vaults for movies that will lend themselves easily adaptable for long-term series fare. There have been countless movies that are being bastardized and the announcements just keep coming. This news is just a little different. Instead of the patented approach of movie to series, this move is a little different due to it being a film, that was already made into a series and now will be re-invented once again.

I saw “Say Anything…” back in 1989. I was 9 years old. “Jerry Maguire” came out in ’96 when I was 16. So it wasn’t until 2000 when “Almost Famous” hit theaters that Cameron Crowe became a name in my household. I am very excited that he is returning to his rock’n’roll roots (“Almost Famous” is loosely based on Crowe’s time as a writer for Rolling Stone magazine) with a comedy that he will write, direct, and executive produce.

Showtime Announces Two New Series!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 16th, 2014
Jana B., Here,

Joshua Jackson

I love watching premium network series. It started with ‘The Sopranos‘. I was absolutely fascinated by how many times they cursed, how much violence it showed, and don’t forget all the T&A in the sex scenes! I should also include the story line arcs that I never wanted to end, as well. I just couldn’t believe this wasn’t a stand alone movie, but a series I got to watch every week! As time went by I had my attention divided to include ‘Big Love‘, ‘Weeds‘, ‘Nurse Jackie‘, ‘Dexter‘….and on and on and on. So I’m excited about Showtime’s announcement of two new series that have been picked up.
