Dexter Season 8

Showtime has announced that the upcoming eighth season of Dexter will be the last for the popular series.

Showtime broke the news first on the Dexter Facebook fan page alongside a two-minute sneak peek where Dexter and Deb have a particularly intense conversation. If you haven't yet finished season 7, you'll wanna skip this one, since it has some pretty obvious spoilers in it. We've embedded the clip for you after the break.

What do you think of the news of Dexter coming to an end?

Review: The Borgias Premiere on Showtime

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Cable, Showtime, Gossip,

The Borgias - Jeremy Irons as Rodrigo BorgiaShowtime’s answer to the gap left by The Tudors debuted on Sunday night. The Borgias, touted by the cable channel as “the original crime family,” enjoyed a 100-minute premiere episode that packed in about as much corruption, sex and murder as any one show can handle.

Jeremy Irons is Spanish-born Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia, but after some clever scheming we were soon calling him Pope Alexander VI. His son Cesare Borgia (Francios Arnaud) is an unwilling cleric but able co-plotter, though his relationship with sister Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger) is incredibly suspect. Younger brother Juan (David Oakes) very much enjoys his soldier role, one that’s coveted by older brother Cesare… who seems far more skilled toward this end than toward his religious duties.

Showtime Picks Up Chew Script

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Television, Image Comics,

ChewTony Chu will soon be taking literal bites out of crime... on TV.

Showtime recently purchased a script -- written by Terri Hughes Burton and Ron Milbauer -- based off of John Layman and Rob Guillory's Chew, which chronicles FDA Agent Chu's detective work, primarily performed thanks to the psychic impressions he receives from eating things (which aren't always the most edible).

Circle of Confusion, the company behind fellow Image TV adaptation The Walking Dead, is fueling the project, which Stephen Hopkins is set to direct and executive produce.

While I imagined back-to-back marathons of Chew and The Walking Dead on AMC, I take comfort in the fact that Chew has found its TV home at Showtime, which has seen a show centering on a serial killer continue past five seasons.

The biggest question, of course, is whether or not Ken Leung will be cast as Tony...

Starz delays Netflix debut of Camelot

Starz Netflix camelot delay

Days after Showtime said it will pull some of its original programming from Netflix's Watch Instantly, Starz has announced some changes to its Netflix lineup, saying it will delay the Netflix debut of "Camelot" for 90 days.

Starz is set to debut its original series, "Camelot," on April 1. As reported by the LA Times, Starz was originally scheduled to debut "Camelot" via Netflix Watch Instantly on April 2, but will now wait 90 days until the show is viewable online.

Starz also plans to delay movies, though a Netflix spokesman said there are "no changes to movies." As the LA Times notes, however, the companies' current contract expires in 2012, so the movie delays could be added to next year's negotiations.

Starz did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Showtime logoHey, you wanna go to Comic Con International on CBS’s dime? Of course you do. Showtime Networks, a division of CBS based in New York, has an intern program that’s running from June 6-July 29.

You’ll be working in the “Program Marketing and Advertising” group and one of your main functions will be “daily tasks and organization leading up to Comic Con, assisting with the advertising tactics in print, tv, online and outdoor and components of the marketing plan.” I'm only assuming that they'll take you to the Con to see your hard work payoff, so you might want to get that included if you get the gig.
