This Thursday, BONES will be celebrating a special hour: episode 206 is not only the number of bones in the human body, but it’ll also make the series the longest running one-hour drama from the show’s studio, 20th Century Fox.

And while it’s a milestone, the hour will be fairly run-of-the-mill for logistical reasons, BONES creator Hart Hanson explained in the video below. In addition to coming very close to the show’s 200th episode massive production, the writers were also trying to balance not knowing whether they’d have to plan for a season or series finale.

Comments Off on BACKSTROM Exclusive Video: The Cast (and Hart Hanson) Goof Around While Promoting the Series

backstrom-tinyThink you know the new Fox series, BACKSTROM? Well, just wait until you hear the cast and creator Hart Hanson attempt to explain it.

In the (hilarious) exclusive video below, the cast — Rainn Wilson, Dennis Haysbert, Genevieve Angelson, Kristoffer Polaha, Page Kennedy, Beatrice Rosen, and Thomas Dekker — and Hanson share their pitches for the show, but can’t get it quite right. There are a lot of giggles, pitches to show Wilson’s butt on network TV, some misspeaking (nope, this isn’t taking place in the “special victims unit”), a ton of poking fun at each other, and general hilarity.

Just try to watch this video and keep a straight face… Read more

Comments Off on BACKSTROM: Rainn Wilson Previews His New Fox Drama

backstrom-tiny If you are an aspiring TV writer, can I recommend first writing a novel, getting it published, and then sending it to Hart Hanson and his team with the hope he will adapt it to a TV show? This Thursday, January 22nd, marks the premiere of BACKSTROM, Hanson’s third “pulled from the bookshelves” series for Fox. The BONES and THE FINDER creator has developed a new show that pulls together a ragtag group of people setting out to make the world a little bit better — primarily by catching murderers.

Fox describes the show’s main and titular character, Everett Backstrom, as “an unhealthy, offensive, irascible — albeit brilliant — detective” played by Rainn Wilson. BACKSTROM’s 13 episode order has been filmed, and Fox sent the pilot and three additional episodes to the press. Additionally, Wilson recently participated in a conference call with several press outlets. Read on to find out what Wilson thinks are Backstrom’s best and worst qualities, how the show fits in the current landscape of society, and the difference between shooting a 60 minute procedural and a 30 minute sitcom…

McClintock (who first announced his casting on Twitter) will play Lieutenant Sam D’Agostino, Backstrom’s (Rainn Wilson) childhood bully. According to the studio, “When they were kids, Sam was a rotten, thieving punk, responsible for stealing from Backstrom…[and] in cahoots with his equally rotten brother. All grown up now Sam and his brother are firefighters who everyone thinks are heroic but Backstrom is convinced they’re the same worthless bits of slime they always were.”
