Fans react as TNT cancels Rizzoli & Isles

Rizzoli & Isles canceled??? Last week at the Television Critics Association winter press tour Kevin Reilly, president of TBS and TNT and the chief creative officer for Turner Entertainment, mentioned that this summer will be the last for Rizzoli & Isles. “No network is the same thing all the time,” Reilly said, while discussing the networks’ overall reinvention. “I am very grateful to have that audience of Major Crimes. I love what’s gone on in Librarians. That’s a fun show that’s nowhere else on television. We can move these different audiences through, and I’m happy to have those shows on […]

M. Night Shyamalan brings Tales From the Crypt to TNT

There’s a lot to love about TV’s new Agent X. He’s smart, loyal, handsome, resilient and a little bit sloppy, but that’s his appeal. He’s not the stuffy Bond type. Much of that can be attributed to the charisma of the man playing Agent X, Jeff Hephner, whose Midwest charm and kick-butt wit definitely show through. TNT’s action/drama series debuts Sunday, Nov. 9 at 9pmET. “[The show] doesn’t take itself too seriously because, God knows, I don’t,” Hephner says. “I’m from Michigan and I’m playing this guy as if he’s from Michigan, and there’s a low-key-ness that I relate to […]

TNT’s Legends Returns Nov. 2

In Season 2 of TNT’s Legends, Sean Bean returns as Martin Odum, an FBI operative with the chameleonlike ability to transform himself into a different person for each deep-cover job. Last season, Odum’s world was upended when he learned that the life he assumed was his reality was merely another of his assumed identities — one of his “legends.” Now he is on the run, accused of a murder he didn’t commit, and searching for clues regarding his true identity without knowing who is friend and who is foe. This season, the slick spy series gets a new look as […]
