AMC has announced that it has renewed two of its popular unscripted series, Comic Book Men and Talking Dead - both with an increased episode count. Comic Book Men will be bumped up from six, hour-long episodes in its first season to sixteen half-hour episodes, with Talking Dead also receiving sixteen episodes as well, upping it from its previous season’s thirteen.

In a radio interview with Carson Daly this week, Dr. McDreamy himself discussed his relief over the end of the long contract negotiations. “It’s just so nice to have a job and it continues on as a wonderful thing, so, very grateful that it’s happening,” says Dempsey. “[I'm] very happy … to move forward and looking forward to another couple of years of the show.”

Before Joseph Gordon-Levitt was cast as John Blake in Dark Knight Rises he was scrawny teenager Cameron James. Prior to Heath Ledger playing The Joker in The Dark Knight he was older looking high school-er Patrick Verona. No, this isn’t an article on the six degrees of separation to Batman. I’m speaking, of course, about the popular ’90s teenage comedy 10 Things I Hate About You - an updated version of William Shakespeare’s comedic play “The Taming of the Shrew”.
Director Gil Junger, who directed both the big screen version and ABC Family TV version of 10 Things I hate About You, recently told Variety that he is moving forward with production on the sequel. While it’s still way too early to know if Julia Stiles (Bourne Identity, ...
