Emile Hirsch & Holliday Grainger Are BLOODY Good In New Bonnie & Clyde Trailer!

Filed under: TV NewsEmile Hirsch

Even though we know what becomes of these outlaw lovers (HISTORY SPOILER ALERT: it ain't pretty…) we're still fired up to see the upcoming Bonnie & Clyde miniseries starring Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger!

These two look downright GANGSTER in the new trailer video released today!

The story of the criminal couple will be told in a 2 night event across 3 different networks, with A&E, Lifetime and The History Channel all broadcasting the miniseries simultaneously!

Part One is set to air on December 8th!

Oscar winners Holly Hunter and William Hurt also star in this shoot 'em up TV special!

While we are in NO WAY fans of guns and violence in real life, this looks like it could be an AH-Mazing retelling of one of the most tragic romances in American history!

Press PLAY above and prepare to watch the bullets fly in Bonnie & Clyde!

Hatfields & Mccoys breaks ratings records

America LOVES the Hatfields & McCoys!

13.9 million viewers tuned in on Monday night to the first 2-hour installment of The History Channel's 3-part miniseries, which stars Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton as the feuding families' patriarchs.

As a result, the History Channel has officially made history because the western has become was the most-watched non-sports show ever on ad-supported cable TV.

Yeah, it's a mouthful of a record, but an impressive one nonetheless. To put it into perspective, the top show of

Survivor Producer Mark Burnett To Take On The Bible!

survivor producer takes on the bible

Quite an ambitious project for the reality producer!

Survivor/The Apprentice/Sarah Palin's Alaska producer Mark Burnett is putting together a 5-part, 10-hour religious docu-drama based on The Bible, which will air on The History Channel in 2013.

Here's what History Channel president/general manager Nancy Dubuc had to say about the project:

"This is probably the most important book in mankind, regardless of your beliefs or religious affiliation. This series will bring the historical stories of the Bible to life for a new generation."

"We spend a lot of time talking about this book, and probably not enough time knowing what's in it. One of the most important things about history is knowing the stories of history."

We agree that The Bible is a very important book…but are we 100% sure that a producer from Sarah Palin's reality show is the right guy to tell the story of the holy book?

Will U watch The Bible when it premieres in 2013? Do U think Mark Burnett is the right guy for this major project?

DirecTV Considering Airing The Kennedys

There's still hope for The Kennedys miniseries!

After The History Channel decided to not air the 8-part miniseries and Showtime rejected it, sources say that DirecTV is in talks to possibly pick up the project, starring Katie Holmes and Greg Kinnear, and air it on its Channel 101.

This wouldn't be a first for DirecTV. They also saved NBC's Friday Night Lights and FX's Damages after they were on the brink of cancelation.

The company is not part of a major studio, such as Disney or NBC - which owns The History Channel - so this could be a very good sign for The Kennedys.

After all the recent publicity of the movie, we bet it'll get pretty good ratings no matter where it's shown.

Will U watch??

The Kennedys Were Cut Loose AGAIN

Filed under: Film FlickersKatie Holmes

the-kennedys-will-not-sell.jpg

The eight-part miniseries The Kennedys, starring Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes, has been passed on by another network.

Showtime has decided not to buy the miniseries that was just dropped by The History Channel last week.

An exec claims that "there has been interest expressed by several networks.” That may be true but there are no takers yet.

HBO already has an adaptation of Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy in development with Playtone, and Starz has not been approached.

Many believe that the film is slanted politically but director said that “the actual product takes no political stance one way or the other.”

Guess we'll have to wait and see!
