TCA NEWS: FOX’s GRACEPOINT With David Tennant & Anna Gunn


Remember the big Gracepoint photo shoot at Victoria’s Island View Beach in early May? FOX released some of the promotional stills last weekend for the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Broadchurch–inspired series Gracepoint is about a young boy Danny Solano found dead on Gracepoint Beach below a cliff-face, with everyone in the small northern California town a suspect. The murder turns neighbour against neighbour and sparks a national media feeding frenzy with Detectives Emmett Carver (Doctor Who/Broadchurch’s David Tennant) and Ellie Miller (Breaking Bad’s Anna Gunn) under scrutiny as well. Above is a great moody shot of the detectives with all the suspects in Danny’s death standing behind the yellow crime scene tape. Only kayak rental owner Jack Reinhold (Nick Nolte) and Rev. Paul Coates (Kevin Rankin) had to be [...]

Screenshot (900)

Tick Tick Boom. Only one more Falling Skies season of ten episodes to be filmed in Vancouver.  Producers feel it’s  time to wrap up the alien invasion saga in the best possible way with a fifth and final season, reported Deadline: Hollywood earlier this week. Shot in Vancouver since the second season, Falling Skies is about a small group of insurgents 2nd Mass — named after the 2nd Massachusetts of the American Revolution — who’ve fought against an occupying alien force for three-plus seasons. More than good sci-fi it appeals as a family show featuring former Boston history prof Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) and his three sons — the eldest Hal (heartthrob Drew Roy), once-harnassed middle son Ben (Connor Jessup) and youngest son Matt (Maxim [...]

image_1 (74)

Lucky Lisa Edelstein. Newly-married and kisses handsome actors for a living in take after take for Marti Noxon’s upcoming Bravo series Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce. Based on books by Vicki Iovine, the 13-episode dramedy follows best-selling self-help author Abby (House’s Lisa Edelstein), who tries to keep it a secret that she’s separated from her husband (Paul Adelstein), as she navigates her new life in Los Angeles as a single woman in her early forties. Advice from her divorced friends, lawyer Lyla (Janeane Garofalo) and former model Phoebe (Beau Garrett), becomes more relevant than from her married ones. And that leads to new romance with handsome men like Nate (C. Thomas Howell behind the foliage) on this Kitsilano porch. And earlier with another handsome man (Warren Christopher) on [...]


gg2d 2

Bravo’s upcoming hour-long dramedy from showrunner Marti Noxon is a contemporary and fun take on a woman tackling life after divorce with the help of her girlfriends. Based on books by Vicki Iovine, the 13-episode Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce follows best-selling self-help author Abby (House’s Lisa Edelstein), who tries to keep it a secret that she’s separated from her husband (Paul Adelstein), as she navigates her new life in Los Angeles as a single woman in her early forties. Not surprisingly, she begins to find advice from her divorced friends lawyer Lyla (Janeane Garofalo) and former model Phoebe (Beau Garrett) more relevant than her married ones and that leads to some big changes and apparently some romantic action with a handsome man (Motive’s [...]

SHOOT: Frozen’s Elsa (Georgina Haig) Terrorizes ONCE UPON A TIME’s Storybrooke (Steveston)

untitled (3)

I met the gorgeous @GeorginaHaig the other day! The perfect #Elsa! She is so sweet! #OUAT — Rachel (@onceuponameep) July 19, 2014 Frozen’s Ice Queen Elsa (Georgina Haig) spent much of Wednesday and Thursday terrorizing Once Upon a Time’s Storybrooke with townsfolk running in panic. Why? She looks so lovely. “Monster!” shouted Grumpy (Lee Arenberg) outside Storybrooke Hardware. Screencap of season three finale. Georgina Haig as Elsa. Useless Elsa costume fact- this outfit has 8 pieces to it. Perhaps one is tremendously bad at strip poker and is covering ones ass. — Georgina Haig (@GeorginaHaig) July 18, 2014   She looks more-Elsa-and-less-Georgina here. Elsa capped her Storybroooke rampage by freezing a door knob at Mr. Gold’s very early this morning. [...]

SHOOT: THE FLASH TCA News, Mini-Flash & Today’s West End Burning Building Set

The Flash mini

Since Grant Gustin is [out of town] this pint-sized The Flash is ready to step in and save people on a burning West End building set. He came to set today to meet his hero. So sweet. Wish Grant Gustin had been there to see him. But Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Candace Patton, Tom Cavanagh and the showrunners are in Los Angeles today at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, where they announced the casting of Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) as Leonard Snart, aka villain Captain Cold. And confirmed casting of Robbie Amell (The Tomorrow People) as Ronnie Raymond, one half of Firestorm with yet-to-be-cast Martin Stein as the other half. Happened by a bit of #filming for the #Flash. [...]

“We’re under attack” shouts Grumpy, running around the corner into Once Upon a Time’s Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) having a quiet romantic moment. What is happening? Clearly Elsa (Georgina Haig) has arrived in Storybrooke. #CaptainSwan sure can’t catch a break. Their budding romance cut short when all hell breaks loose — again. Stay tuned. Quiet romantic moment for #CaptainSwan. Check out Hook’s guyliner. Grumpy (Lee Arenberg) interrupts them. And then running. Charming (Josh Dallas) joined the run in take after take in summer heat. PS Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) is a rock star. Wish I could have captured the screams and waves from the crowd when he first appeared on set.

Bradley (Nicola Peltz), who faked her own suicide after killing her father’s murderer, left White Pine Bay by bus last season on Bates Motel. It made a nice dramatic exit for the actress, who had been cast in summer box office smash Transformers: Age of Extinction. Now there is confirmation from her TV mother Lini Evans that Nicola Peltz will return for season 3, expected to start filming this October at its Aldergrove motel and gothic house set and other locations around Vancouver. Won’t Norman (Freddie Highmore) be pleased? Related: Nicola Peltz Filming Bates Motel in Horseshoe Bay.      

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s Charming Family (Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Jennifer Morrison & Jared Gilmore) & Baby Back in Steveston as Storybrooke

image_3 (29)

Once Upon a Time is back in Steveston as Storybrooke today for the first time in season four to film the Charming family strolling down Main Street. Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin), Charming (Josh Dallas), Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Henry (Jared Gilmore) and new baby Neal (not played by the real Goodwin-Dallas baby) did the stroll over and over in front of a crowd of fans. Not seen in this sequence is Hook (Colin O’Donoghe) in full leathers, who joins them at the end of the block. Apparently Hook is due for a new wardrobe in season four but not today in the July summer heat. Poor Colin O’Donoghue. Keeping the scrims up for Charming family stroll. Next up: A #CaptainSwan action scene. Hook (Colin [...]
