Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to Be Mini-Series

Pride and Prejudice and ZombiesThe best-selling parody of Jane Austen’s classic, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, has been given the greenlight by Deadline Productions to make a 6-part television series.

Although talks have circulated around a feature film, it looks as if the mini-series may win the race to adapt Seth Grahame-Smith’s eccentric, fan boy-pleasing novel.

Along with announcing the production news, the book’s Twitter also released possible concept art for the series (seen after the break).

No word yet as to which network is expected to pick up the series; however, it will most likely be a British one, considering the production company is UK-based. As if Sci-Fi wouldn’t love to air a ninja-induced, zombie-killing love story!

The International Ghost Hunt is Back On

Ghost Hunters If you noticed a dismal lack of spooky thrills and chills this Wednesday evening, it’s probably because no new episode of aired to put us in touch with the paranormal. Sadly, the show will not return with fresh fear until September. In the meantime, you’ll just have to remain content with the show’s spin-off: Ghost Hunters International.

This European version of the show premiered on the in January, and though it scored the highest premiere ratings any reality show on SciFi has ever seen (including its parent program), only seven episodes aired before the fourth season of Ghost Hunters premiered to sweep International back under the rug. Now, the original is out of new episodes. It’s time for the B crew to shine again.

Fox Hypes Up Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse

Cast of Joss Whedon's Dollhouse

Feeling quite guilty that I haven’t come across the Dollhouse trailer until now, I felt like I should make up for it by doing Fox a favor and spreading the love!

The trailer for this fall’s sci-fi drama (which you can check out after the jump) has been out and about on YouTube and select TV spots, getting many pretty excited about its premiere. After all, it is  Joss Whedon’s first series since Firefly, which went off the air back in 2003 (surprisingly with the same network his new show is on).

Dollhouse, starring former Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BTVS) favorite Eliza Dushku, focuses on a clandestine, illegal operation carried out by agents who have their memories and personalities completely erased after each mission. Dushku plays Echo, one operative who slowly starts to learn more and more about where she works over time—she becomes a known flaw in the system, if you will.

The series premieres in January on Fox, right before 24 in the Monday 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT spot.

Ghost Hunters: Season Four Begins

Ghost HuntersGhost Hunters International, the European version of SciFi Channel’s popular Ghost Hunters series, was an interesting diversion (and a very lucrative one for the channel), but I must admit I’ve been on pins and needles waiting for the “real” Ghost Hunters to start. Wednesday night, my wait will finally end

Jason, Grant, and the TAPS team are back on the hunt again, and the fourth season of the show will premiere March 5 at 9 pm. The team will trek out to Philadelphia to investigate Fort Mifflin and supposed paranormal happenings located within. Those TAPS members absent from the International episodes - including Steve and Tango - will finally be back on the small screen with more debunking, disproving, and possible ghost-finding. It all starts tonight!

Don’t Put Yourself in a ‘Paranormal State’

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Sci-Fi/Horror, Cable, Editorial,

Paranormal StateTurn to the network, even the , and you’ll find shows that take you behind the world of plain and into the unknown. Sure, it’s easy to be skeptical. It’s easy to be a cynic. What’s it not easy to do is believe – not when you’re dealing with television, a vehicle concerned with big and special effects. But A&E’s has already turned some non-believers into paranormal investigators…whether they wanted it that way or not.

Executives and show producers involved with the documentary series have said they’ve witnessed paranormal activity for themselves by virtue of their involvement with the show. Reports include EVP (electronic voice phenomenon), otherworldly mists, and cold chills. The series debuted last week, becoming the most-watched premiere for the channel in the last 3 years. Undoubtedly some of those numbers arrive from an overall lack of television choices, the result of the ongoing .

The entire crew wore St. Benedict medals (which were dipped in “holy water”) while shooting. Good thinking. If a ghost comes after me with a glint in its eye, I’m going to reach right for the nearest talisman. That oughtta help. One person tied to the series calls it “emotional and compelling and real.” Pardon my cynicism, but we are still talking about a TV show here. Like the news, reality TV has to worry about ratings, too.
