ALMOST HUMAN Co-Showrunner Naren Shankar Exits

Comments Off on ALMOST HUMAN Co-Showrunner Naren Shankar Exits

ALMOST HUMAN co-showrunner Naren Shankar has exited the freshman Fox series, multiple sources have confirmed. Deadline was the first to break the news.

Shankar joined ALMOST HUMAN creator J.H. Wyman as co-showrunner of the drama after Fox picked up the pilot to series in May. Since then, Shankar has been an active part of the show’s promotion, going to Comic-Con and TCA to help tout the series. He told me last month that he was “delighted at the prospect of coming back into genre,” noting that he and Wyman had swapped episodes of FRINGE and CSI to watch in order to familiarize themselves with each other’s work.

Wyman is expected to run ALMOST HUMAN solo.

ALMOST HUMAN is set to debut Monday, November 4th at 8 PM on Fox.

ALMOST HUMAN: Michael Ealy on Playing an Android, What Drew Him to the Series, and More

Comments Off on ALMOST HUMAN: Michael Ealy on Playing an Android, What Drew Him to the Series, and More

There are a ton of procedurals on television these days — the good, the bad, the forgettable — but the new Fox drama, ALMOST HUMAN, is giving the genre its own little twist: it’s set in 2048, and in the future, law enforcement officials are paired up with android partners. (And since the series comes from former FRINGE showrunner J.H. Wyman, you can expect the future to be appropriately bizarre in all the right places.) Playing one of those androids — albeit a discontinued/bug-filled model whose big flaw is that he was made to feel — is Michael Ealy (Dorian), who has been a familiar face on television over the past few seasons, including starring in the USA Network series COMMON LAW.

I recently sat down with Ealy to get his take on playing an android, the show’s appeal, keeping up momentum, and more…

With only 20 hours until the FRINGE finale, are you feeling ready for what’s going to go down?

FRINGE: The Cast Talks About their Reaction to Reading ‘End of the Series’ in the Finale Script. Plus, J.H. Wyman on Reaching the End

Filed under #1 featured, Fringe

The people behind FRINGE got a rare television gift — they got to go into the final season knowing it was the end.

And while all year was leading up this being it, being aware the end was coming and actually seeing the words “end of series” on a script are two entirely different matters.

I spoke with FRINGE stars John Noble (Walter), Joshua Jackson (Peter), Jasika Nicole (Astrid), and Lance Reddick (Broyles) about reading those series-ending words, plus showrunner J.H. Wyman about reaching the end…

FRINGE’s J.H. Wyman on the Donald Twist: ‘I Promise There Are Going to be a Lot of Reveals’

Comments Off on FRINGE’s J.H. Wyman on the Donald Twist: ‘I Promise There Are Going to be a Lot of Reveals’

After months of teasing, Donald’s identity was revealed in the last new episode of FRINGE…and it was none other than September.

But since they have no idea where he is in 2036, where does Team Fringe go from here?

“Let’s just say that’s not the end of it,” FRINGE showrunner J.H. Wyman teased of the team discovering that their favorite Observer was the one helping Walter come up with a plot to take on the invaders.

Take a look at what else he had to say about the upcoming reveals…

FRINGE: J.H. Wyman Thanks the Fans

December 13, 2012 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Fringe

For FRINGE (and its fans), the journey has never been easy. The further the show dove into its mythology — and the core of what made it so special — the more the series struggled to retain viewers…and remain on air.

Enter the fans.

Sure, no series could be saved by fan love alone (as romantic as that notion might be, it’s still sadly “show business”), but the FRINGE fans raised their voices and got proactive: despite the FRINGE bosses telling them to not worry too much about the ratings, they sent in licorice and created Twitter hashtags to build buzz for the show. (To just name a few things.) And thanks to that, plus support from FRINGE’s network (Fox President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly has been a vocal supporter) and studio (Warner Bros. Television President Peter Roth is a big enough fan of the series that he was able to name his favorite episode/storyline during our interview at the 100th episode event), the cult favorite was able to conclude its story on its own terms.

Since all good things must come to an end, today is the last day of filming for FRINGE. It’s bittersweet and more than a little unreal that the series did reach episode 100, but it felt only fitting that on this day, I share with you FRINGE showrunner J.H. Wyman’s thanks to the fans…
