Reverie @ NYCC Is Bleeding Cool

artwork_002Reports from the New York Comic Con event of the previous weekend are starting to spring up.

As we know the cast of the new ABC drama series Reverie attended the ‘con’, took part in a discussion panel after a screening of the pilot, and also conducted individual interviews with members of the press.

The Bleeding Cool website has an article by Adi Tantimedh who, after a explanation of Reverie‘s premise describes it thus:

This is one of the more ambitious shows this season. It’s not another cop show or another soldier show. It’s about tragedy, loss, and empathy. It’s about the desire to escape from the trauma and sadness of life into a dream world, and the need to connect with humanity and emotion.

Adi goes on to give quotes from each main actor (Sarah Shahi, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Jessica Lu, Dennis Haysbert), creator Mickey Fisher, and producer Tom Szentgyorgi.  Of course Kathryn is there too.  Here is what she said about Reverie and her character Monica Shaw from the Department Of Defense:

I thought this show is a beautiful execution of a psychological thriller within this emotional landscape in the world of virtual reality. It’s not like a typical Sci Fi show where the emotions come later. It’s a tangible take on the power of virtual reality. And nobody does it better than Amblin. My character lives in a grey area of Light and Dark in the way the government uses things for their own purposes.

You can read Adi Tantimedh’s full piece HERE and a follow-up article on how the show is about finding a human connection HERE.

Sendhil Ramamurthy Talks Reverie

artwork_002Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes) attended the recent Comic-Con event in San Diego.

The actor has many reasons to be at sci-fi TV and movie focused gatherings like Comic-Con because of his work on shows like Heroes, Lucky Man, and Covert Affairs over the past decade.  Of course this year Sendhil had a new project to talk about:  the new upcoming TV series Reverie.

The comparative lack of Reverie news to come out of July’s Comic-Con suggests that most of those discussions happened behind closed doors.  Perhaps they’ll become more public nearer to the broadcast.  There were definitely none of the panel discussions made up of cast and crew from the show that have become common practice at these conferences.  I don’t think key members of the production team were present.

artwork_002However, blogger Cherry Davis got a 5 minute-long interview with Sendhil.  In that time he explains the basic plot line of Reverie, hints at some of the motivations of the main character played by Sarah Shahi, and details his own role.  Crucially Kathryn gets a mention about 3 minutes in.  Sendhil leaves Kathryn’s Monica Shaw as a mystery, saying she comes in towards the end of the pilot that he’d just seen.

In between the pitching, filming, and broadcast much can change in a new TV series.  Hearing that Kathryn’s character has made it into a later cut of the first episode, and forms part of what could be the on-going storyline is very welcome news.

Thank you to Cherry Davis for making the interview available.  You can watch Cherry’s video in full on YouTube HERE.  A small copy has been added to the KM UK gallery.

 

Like They Needed To Ask…

The TV Series Finale website is asking the question that those of us on this website already know the answer to.

Who’s the Sexiest Female Cop or Detective on TV?

We’re surprised it even needed to ask.

I give you exhibits A, B and C, your honour…

And that’s just 3 images from the Cold Case promos for season 2, 4 and 6 respectively.  I don’t even need to pull out the BIG GUNS!  There’s lots of other great examples in the KM UK Gallery.

In the piece they refer to Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: SVU), Gillian Anderson (The X-Files), and a real blast from the past Heather Locklear from (remember this?) T.J. Hooker.  It was a nice touch to list these lovely women but they let slip the real truth behind the article by finally casually dropping in Kathryn.

Feel free to set the good people of TV Series Finale straight HERE.

Coming Soon To Colony…

Colony_S01E07_still_005 Colony_S01E07_still_006

The USA Network has published the official press release for this coming Thursday’s episode of its hit sci-fi-ish drama series Colony.  It’s titled ‘Zero Day’ and is episode nine.

Will (Josh Holloway) comes up with a plan to get his family out from under the Occupation. Throwing a wrench in his best-laid plans, Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies) and Broussard (Tory Kittles) attempt to rekindle the fire of resistance by joining forces with a new cell. In a bold political move, Proxy Snyder (Peter Jacobson) fights to protect his office. Later, Maddie (Amanda Righetti) corners her boss in a precarious predicament.

The series also stars Alex Neustaedter and Isabella Crovetti-Cramp.

Guest Stars: Thora Birch, Victor Rasuk, Carl Weathers, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Kathryn Morris, Adrian Pasdar, Ally Walker, Gonzalo Menendez, Charlie Bewley

My emphasis.  Presumably Maddie’s boss mentioned above is Charlotte (Kathryn).  Thora Birch (American Beauty) is a new addition to the cast.

This is due to be Kathryn’s last appearance of the season, with just one episode left to go.  We already know a second season has been commissioned but we don’t know if Charlotte will be a part of it, or even survive that far.  It will likely be filmed in the summer, just as this first season was filmed in mid-2015.

Released promo photos and video, and a sneak peak video for episode nine have not included Kathryn at all.  However, I have a suspicion that the two images above, which were tagged as being part of episode 7 and posted a few weeks ago here, are actually for this next one.  The more relaxed clothing and hair style (harking back to Lilly Rush a bit) are not looks we’ve seen so far.  The shot of Maddie glancing back over her shoulder whilst walking away and Charlotte looking uncomfortable fit with the description.  We’ll have to wait and see.

Those photos are in the KM UK Gallery filed under episode seven until we know better.

Johnny Phones Home

johnny_twitter_015_20150510Kathryn’s partner, and father of her twin boys, Johnny Messner has recently been publicising a new movie called Weaponized, or maybe WEAPONiZED, which was released earlier this week on DVD/Blu-ray and VOD.

It’s an action film starring Johnny as a cop who ‘must prevent a grieving father from unleashing a “robotic virus” that he believes will destroy the terrorist cell that murdered his son.’

One of the interviews Johnny’s done was for the Syracuse.com website.  He is from the city of Syracuse in New York state.  But we’re not here to talk about him.

As is standard in these interviews there’s a description of Johnny’s history and mention of his private life, which leads us to the following quote from the article:

But the most important role Messner’s taken in recent years may be as a father. He and his wife, “Cold Case” star Kathryn Morris, welcomed twin sons, Jameson and Rocco, in 2013.

“It’s amazing,” he says. “It’s intense having twins. There’s no way to prepare for it, but it’s been… the greatest thing to ever happen to me. And Kathryn is the most amazing mother ever.”

The photo shown above from Johnny’s Instagram is used to illustrate the piece.

Read the complete interview, including a video from Weaponized, by Geoff Herbert on Syracuse.com.
