PERSON OF INTEREST — which is, as far as I’m concerned, one of the best shows on television right now — isn’t a show that plays it safe: the showrunners have been adamant that anyone can die at any time (and they’ve stuck to that), and that this isn’t a show that’s destined to run for 200-plus episodes.
But what do the actors on the show think of all of that? Michael Emerson (Finch) and Kevin Chapman (Fusco) weighed in on the looming threat to their characters’ lives, and why it’s OK if the show doesn’t run 10 seasons…
AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW is making its debut on October 8th on FX, and now the network has released the official cast art for the season. As you might expect, it’s fantastic/a little bit creepy.

Starz is releasing five episodes of its upcoming documentary series, THE CHAIR, early to subscribers via Starz Play and Starz VOD.
“Starz is making the first five episodes of THE CHAIR available on the same day of the television premiere of the series to reach a young adult population that is in the vanguard of ‘bingeing’ on shows as their preferred method of viewing,” said Chris Albrecht, CEO of Starz in a statement. “Starz is always interested in moving the premium programming model forward with strategies that are attuned to the projected audience demos of the show. We are once again utilizing an exposure tactic that has intrigued us since we first did it with last year’s limited series DANCING ON THE EDGE.”
THE CHAIR is a unique series that follows the filmmaking process as two first-time directors attempt to make their own separate films — from the same script.
The series officially debuts on Starz on Saturday, September 6th at 11 PM.

FX has ordered 10 episodes of BASKETS, a half-hour, single camera comedy series starring Zach Galifianakis, and co-created by Galifianakis, Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel. The series will start production next year for a 2016 debut.
“Zach Galifianakis, Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel have created an absolutely brilliant show,” said Eric Schrier, Co-President of Original Programing for FX Networks and FX Productions. “To say Zach’s portrayal of the lead character Chip Baskets is hilarious/unique/riveting/fascinating would be an understatement. We can’t wait for the world to meet him.”
So what’s BASKETS about? “In a world constrained by corporate interests and the homogenization of society, one man in Bakersfield, California dares to follow his dream of becoming a professional clown. But after an unsuccessful enrollment at a prestigious clowning school in Paris, the only job he can find is with the local rodeo. Baskets follows Chip Baskets’ (Zach Galifianakis) pursuit of his dream, against all odds, to be a respected clown.”
