Sleepy Hollow Renewed for Season 2

3 10 2013

(Press Release) FOX AWAKENS SEASON TWO OF HIT DRAMA SERIES “SLEEPY HOLLOW”SleepyHollow1

Premiere Episode Surpasses 22 Million Viewers Across Platforms

Next All-New Episode Airs Monday, October 7, on FOX

FOX will delve into a second season of the hit action/adventure series SLEEPY HOLLOW, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

“The show has proven to be a risk well worth taking – it’s a conceptual blast unlike anything else on television and it all holds together with inventive writing and a fantastic cast,” said Reilly. “I can’t wait for fans to experience what else is in store for this fall and even more of this wild ride into Season Two.”

The series premiere of SLEEPY HOLLOW earned a 5.0/13 rating among Adults 18-49 and drew 13.6 million viewers after three additional days of time-shifted viewing, making it FOX’s most successful fall drama premiere since the debut of “24” in November 2001. In fact, with its encore, post-three-day playback on DVR and VOD, and its streaming on http://www.Fox.com and http://www.Hulu.com, the series premiere of SLEEPY HOLLOW has already drawn an audience of more than 22 million. In Week Three, SLEEPY HOLLOW showed increasing retention, delivering a 3.0/8 rating and holding 97% of the prior week’s Adults 18-49 delivery.

In the next all-new episode of SLEEPY HOLLOW, “The Lesser Key of Solomon,” airing Monday, Oct. 7 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Lt. Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) and Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) search for Abbie’s estranged sister, Jenny (guest star Lyndie Greenwood), who has escaped from a Sleepy Hollow psychiatric hospital. In a game-changing episode, which includes flashbacks to the real Boston Tea Party, Abbie and Ichabod discover more about the evil they are facing.

SLEEPY HOLLOW is a thrilling mystery-adventure drama series spanning two and a half centuries, in which a resurrected Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) pairs up with a present-day police lieutenant (Nicole Beharie) to save the enigmatic town of Sleepy Hollow – and the world – from unprecedented evil.

From K/O Paper Products in association with 20th Century Fox Television, SLEEPY HOLLOW is co-created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Phillip Iscove and Len Wiseman (“Hawaii Five-0,” “Underworld” and “Total Recall”). The series is executive-produced by Kurtzman, Orci, Wiseman, Mark Goffman, Ken Olin and Heather Kadin. Iscove serves as supervising producer. Wiseman directed the pilot. “Like” SLEEPY HOLLOW on Facebook at http://www.Facebook.com/SleepyHollowFOX. Follow the series on Twitter @SleepyHollowFOX and join the discussion at #sleepyhollow.





First Look: Sleepy Hollow

6 07 2013

Heads….will…roll! This show will make ‘headlines’ when it premieres! When it comes to the Headless Horseman, jokes like these will be abundant. What is no joke is this show. The first episode lays out exactly what this show is about and where it plans to take you. In order to create the series, this version of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow deviates from the original story quite a bit, but that does not take anything away from the drama and suspense. The storytelling in the first episode is tight.

Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) wakes up in our time. The Headless Horseman (Richard Cetrone) is here, too. Their bond was forged in blood. Can you imagine waking up 250 years later and everything that has changed? There are roads, computers, the internet, abolition of slavery, and Starbucks! The “B” story in this is all the wonders Ichabod discovers and his reactions to them. He joins forces with a woman police officer, Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie), who reports to Captain Frank Irving (Orlando Jones). The first episode also features Clancy Brown who plays Sheriff August Corbin and John Cho who plays Andy Dunn. After seeing the first episode, I am going to predict that this will be similar to “The Following” where you just cannot count on many people being safe with the exception of the leads of Crane and the Headless Horseman.

If you love mystery and intrigue sprinkled in with elements of the supernatural, a battle being forces of good and evil that are leading to the apocalypse, this show should be on your radar for the fall. It premieres on Fox on Monday, September 15, 2013 9 PM Eastern/8 PM Central time.

My thanks once again to Fox Broadcasting and the FOX VIP program for the privilege of watching the pilot episode.

Looking forward to seeing this show as well. How will I make room on my DVR? My husband suggests we upgrade. I am thinking I might agree with him.





Fox’s Sleepy Hollow for the 2013-2014 Primetime Season

13 05 2013

New York (Monday, May 13, 2013) – Kevin Reilly, Chairman, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, today unveiled the FOX primetime slate for the 2013-2014 television season to the national advertising community during its annual Programming Presentation at the Beacon Theatre.SleepyHollowonFox

“This season, we will strategically launch five inventive live-action comedies, four distinctive dramas, our first-ever event series, as well as some innovative new digital initiatives, across the week and throughout the year,” said Reilly. “We’re making the biggest investment in original programming in our history to ensure that FOX continues to engage viewers and move the culture more than any other entertainment brand.”

From co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (the “Star Trek” and “Transformers” franchises, “Fringe”) comes the adventure thriller SLEEPY HOLLOW. In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic, ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison, “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and that he is humanity’s last hope, forcing him to team up with a contemporary police officer (Nicole Beharie, “Shame,” “American Violet”) to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers.

SLEEPY HOLLOW

What if you suddenly woke up from the throes of death 250 years in the future to find the world is on the brink of destruction, caused by unimaginable events, and you are humanity’s last hope? Welcome to SLEEPY HOLLOW, the thrilling new mystery-adventure drama from co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (“Star Trek” and “Transformers” franchises, “Fringe”). In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic, ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison, “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers. Revived alongside Ichabod is the infamous Headless Horseman who is on a murderous rampage in present-day Sleepy Hollow. Bound to the Headless Horseman by a blood spell cast on the battlefield of the American Revolution, Ichabod quickly realizes that stopping Headless is just the beginning, as the resurrected rider is but the first of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. As this re-invented Ichabod finds himself in present-day Sleepy Hollow, he discovers a town and a world he no longer recognizes. All that is brutally familiar are Headless and Ichabod’s determination to annihilate this immortal being. It’s a mission he must complete quickly, as Headless already has viciously slain Sheriff AUGUST CORBIN (guest star Clancy Brown, “Cowboys & Aliens,” “Carnivale”). Grey served both as mentor and father figure to Detective ABBIE MILLS (Nicole Beharie, “Shame,” “American Violet”), a young cop whose own supernatural experiences help her form an unlikely bond with Ichabod. But Sleepy Hollow’s head of police, Captain FRANK IRVING (Orlando Jones, “The Chicago 8,” “Drumline”), isn’t buying any of this. In fact, the only person who is on Abbie’s side is Ichabod. His extensive first-hand knowledge of our secret American history, coupled with her superior profiling and modern threat assessment skills, will make them a formidable duo as they work together to triumph over evil. The complex pasts of Ichabod and Abbie, from Ichabod’s inclusion in the powerful and secretive Freemasons Society and the ghostly appearance of his late wife, KATRINA (Katia Winter, “Dexter”), to Abbie’s childhood visions, will help them solve the intricate puzzles of Sleepy Hollow in order to protect its future. As history repeats itself, the oddly-linked pair will draw on the real stories and hallowed secrets this nation was founded on in their quest to stop an increasingly vicious cycle of evil. SLEEPY HOLLOW is from K/O Paper Products in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series is co-created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Phillip Iscove and Len Wiseman (“Hawaii Five-0,” “Underworld” and “Total Recall”). The series is executive-produced by Kurtzman, Orci, Wiseman and Heather Kadin. Iscove serves as supervising producer. Wiseman directed the pilot.

Fringe: The Boy Must Live Preview

5 01 2013

FringeS5Pic2FRINGE on Fox returns on Friday, January 11, 2013 with an all-new episode, “The Boy Must Live”, the last episode before the 2-part series finale on January 18, 2013 with “Liberty” and “An Enemy of Fate.”

This is an emotionally charged episode that starts with a naked Walter in the sensory-deprivation tank trying to unravel clues to finding Donald. Windmark is off to a meeting in New York City in the year 2609, but who exactly is this individual? The scenes between Walter and Peter (especially at the beginning of the episode) filled me with joy and made me cry. Love is such a powerful force, isn’t it? One thing that is not a spoiler, but is funny, is that apparently Peter, as a child, did not like to poop in a public restroom. Too funny.

FringeTheBoyMustLive1

We discover what happened to a special character of FRINGE. We learn of Michael’s origins and why he is important. Windmark also has some self-discovery.

The team races forward trying to stay one foot ahead of the Observers. Towards the end, there is another emotional scene with Walter that made my cry, so definitely bring the tissues. And at the end, there may be a snag in their plan which propels us forward to the 2-part series finale on January 18, 2013.

FringeTheBoyMustLive2

Thanks again to Fox Broadcasting and the Fox VIP program for allowing me the opportunity to preview the show and sharing with you some of the episode without spoiling it.





Fringe: The Bullet That Saved The World

25 10 2012

Fringe fans! Make sure you have PLENTY of tissues for this episode. The episode begins with explosions and ends with explosions and is filled with forward momentum with The Observers snapping at their heels the whole time. During this episode, our team finds another tape with another clue on how to defeat The Observers which leads them to another city. An old friend returns. Is this friend on the side of The Observers or the resistance? You find out later in this episode. There are more wonderful scenes between Etta and Peter and Etta and Olivia. Etta discovers the meaning behind the keepsake she wears around her neck.

There is a wonderful scene that resembles something that happens in The Matrix. And once again, the Betamax tapes remind me so much of the Dharma Initiative recordings with Dr. Pierre Chang.

Get ready for a twist at the end that you will not be expecting and will blow your mind (and not in a good way). If you aren’t going to be able to watch it live, I suggest avoiding Twitter until you get to see it because fans are going to go crazy and Twitterscream.

Guest stars for this episode include: Peter Abrams, Sean Baden, Noah Beggs, Nathan Dales, Edward Foy, Andrew Hedge, H.A. Hunter, Kasey Kieler, Terrance Leigh, Steve Makaj, Austin Middleton, Phillip Mitchell, Jaren Moore, Graham Myers, Michael Rogers, Jordan Schartner, Alan Silverman, David Thompson, Charles Zuckermann. Very special guest star? Take a guess!  The episode was written by Alison Schapker and directed by David Straiton.

Thank you again FOX VIP for the preview recording of this fantastic episode.  Here is a promo for Friday night’s show:





Fringe “In Absentia”

4 10 2012

Season 5 of FRINGE does not waste a single moment of its remaining time, whether it is moving us forward to stop the Observers, or filling us in on the past 20 years of storyline. In order to unlock Walter’s mind to the plan to stop the observers, they decide the next step is to get to Walter’s lab at Harvard. Unfortunately, it’s an Observer stronghold so they will have to break in. Walter enjoys that idea very much and runs into an old friend along the way. We get some scary glimpses into Etta, the freedom fighter. Apparently fighting our future begins with saving an obsolete item from our real-time history. There are some interesting ways to torture people in the future as well. Once you think something is going one way, you are totally surprised that you are wrong, and give me a new appreciation for the phrase “in a pig’s eye.” Olivia and Etta learn more about each other. The team gains a possible new ally. In the end, we are left with a puzzle that resembles another show that has already aired and a story that resembles a real-life parallel.

Do you really expect me to tell you ACTUAL spoilers? In a pig’s eye.

Tune in to FRINGE Friday night at 9:00 PM Eastern/8:00 central time on FOX.   Guest star is Eric Lange.

Thank you again to OFFICIALFOXVIP for the privilege of seeing the episode in advance.





Fringe Season 5 Preview

25 09 2012

It’s 2036. The Observers now rule. The big question is “Where’s Olivia?”

The 13-episode final season of Fringe begins Friday, September 28, 2012 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

When we left off in “Letters of Transit” in season 4’s “Letters of Transit”, we discover that the Fringe team was preserved in amber for 20 years. Peter is reunited with his daughter, Henrietta (Etta), who is now an adult.

Thanks to FOX VIP I received the wonderful privilege of viewing the premiere episode of season 5, “Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11.”

Things are quite different in the future. It’s a world full of bad air, egg sticks (Walter: “What a miserable future”) and amber gypsies. We learn more about things that happened to the original Fringe team both privately and as a unit. With only 13 episodes, the writers quickly get to the point and keep the momentum going, stopping only for important intimate moments between our characters, which left me crying several times. Some questions are answered by the end of the episode and others are raised. Although the episode remained dramatic, there were always moments of levity with nods to other science fiction/fantasy shows. I swear I saw a Daggit in the marketplace. “It’s always the red wire…unless it’s the white wire.” “Resistance is futile” and Etta’s response was priceless. Fans will be fed fabulous clues and symbolism.

The hashtag on Twitter for this episode will be #TheyAreHere. The Twitter protocol (from http://morethanoneofeverything.net/2012/09/19/we-were-warned-they-are-here-fringe-premiere-twitter-event/) is this (you can read it in more detail at the link):

Be sure to make your first tweet of the night a thank you to @FoxBroadcasting and @WarnerBrosEnt for making season five possible.

1) Don’t use #TheyAreHere before the designated time: 1 HOUR before Fringe airs. The event will take place 1 hour before Fringe airs – 8pm EDT.

2) One # term per Tweet. Use only #TheyAreHere

3) Lots of people tweeting matters more than the number of tweets.

4) Those with lots of followers help out a lot!

5) We want to pique the interest of non-Fringe fans.

6) We can discuss aspects of the show in our tweets.

7) Private accounts must have their locked status removed, as the tweets from locked accounts do not count toward the trend tally.

8) Retweets are the easiest way to help out the trending effort.

9) Remember to check in at GetGlue for cool stickers and so that Fringe will trend there as well.

Let’s all tune-in live to give Fringe the send-off it deserves (and leave the door open for movies?)
