Photo Credit: Warner Brothers Pictures I haven't been held in such suspense since I jumped the Corinth canal only to have my bungee snap off; The 33 showcases the human condition in all its complexities. In 2010, 33 miners in Chile were buried alive by a mine explosion and left with only three days of food to survive. It would take 69 days and an international effort to bring all 33 miners to safety and above ground. How did they survive? And what can audiences learn from their decision to persevere against all odds. 200 stories beneath ground level with their only exit blocked by a boulder twice the mass of the empire state building, the miners mobilized in ways that would stun and magnetize viewers globally. The story of the explosion serves as a backdrop to introduce the based on real life 33 miners who were sent by a mining company to collect gold and copper in a mine they had been forewarned was fatally unstable.

Emily Wickersham Joins 'NCIS' As Series Regular
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Emily Wickersham has joined the cast of "NCIS" as a new series regular. CBS announced Wickersham's series regular status begins on Tuesday, Nov. 19. On the popular CBS series, Wickersham plays NSA Anaylst Eleanor "Ellie" Bishop, who is described as "a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism." She specializes in international threat assessment and global preparation. “Emily Wickersham’s Ellie Bishop is proving to perfectly compliment the NCIS team,” "NCIS" executive producer Gary Glasberg said in a statement. “Her energy and enthusiasm is contagious. Great things are planned for Bishop and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her on board.” Wickersham's casting was announced in September. At the time, she was signed for a three episode arc that included a series regular option. Her casting comes on the heels of Cote de Pablo's departure from the long-running CBS drama. Look for Wickersham’s character to make her introduction when "it is discove ...

Mark Harmon and Michael Weatherly Preview an NCIS Flashback
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
The NCIS cast members on hand are sweating it, since they're all wearing their agency jackets. In the next setup, he's standing over a corpse, trying not to drip sweat on the poor actor who's playing dead. After the cameras stop, Weatherly compliments his other scene partner on his deadpan reaction. Gibbs will be absent from some of this episode, "Once a Crook" (airing Oct. 22), because much of it consists of a flashback to DiNozzo's days as a Baltimore street cop. (Their characters first collided in a previous time-warp episode, "Baltimore"; the 1998 flashbacks in this installment predate that.) Yet the story should shed light on the relationship these two have now and further solve the mystery of why a stoic man like Gibbs picked a cutup like DiNozzo to be his No. 1 son on the NCIS team. A few weeks later, we caught up with Harmon, Weatherly and executive producer Gary Glasberg in the much less humid writers' room. For me, the most interesting part of this episode was how I ...

Top Moments: Breaking Bad's Stunning End, NCIS' Ziva Goodbye, Scandal's Reveal
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
On The Mindy Project, Pastor Casey, Mindy's fiancé, decides what he really wants to be is a DJ -- no, wait, an event planner. Sean Hayes tops the comedian's Liberace-inspired entrance on the Late Show with David Letterman by jumping off a balcony and onto a giant stunt mattress. Not only is she dead (that's a big not only), but in the final moments of The Vampire Diaries premiere, she watches in horror as Silas slits the throat of her father - her only remaining family member in town. The X Factor reinvents itself (again, yawn!) by introducing the Four-Chair Challenge, in which a mentor cuts six of their own 10 competitors by the end of a round. The Originals' series premiere gives us a case of déjà vu by repeating the events of last season's backdoor pilot - but this time from Elijah's point of view. After 237 "seasons," the U.S. government also shut down - and Stephen Colbert can't wait to see how Breaking Gov will end. In Ken Burns' (fictional) documentary, he narrates the ...

NCIS Recap: Ziva Says Goodbye, Tony Lacks For Closure?
The Hollywood Gossip - over 3 years
Tuesday, on the second episode of NCIS Season 11, Cote de Pablo's Ziva David made her final appearance in a complex and emotional installment. After a months-long journey, Tony tracked down his longtime love in Israel, only to have her say she needed to leave the team to find herself again. “I have to do this alone,” Ziva explained to her colleague of so many years. “I have to let go of everything, or I will be pulled back to where I started.” NCIS 'Past, Present & Future' Recap Cote de Pablo's exit threw the show for a loop this summer, as NCIS had to wrap up last season's cliffhanger in an entirely new way to write Ziva out. As a result, her departure didn't offer much closure, though that was possibly deliberate. Ziva's goodbye was as open-ended and positive as they come. Remaining in Israel to find herself? Not entirely satisfying, especially for Tony. But also hard to fault the character for after the events of last season. The kiss was wonder ...

‘NCIS’: Tony & Ziva Kiss Goodbye On Cote de Pablo’s Final Episode
Hollywood Life - over 3 years
Watch a clip of Tony & Ziva’s dreaded parting and share your thoughts on one of TV’s most dynamic couples. Well, NCIS fans, the time has come. Cote de Pablo makes her final appearance, for now, as Special Agent Ziva David on the show’s Oct. 1 episode. With her story all wrapped(ish), Cote’s character will board a plane and fly out of our living rooms for the foreseeable future — but not before sharing an epic lip-lock with Tony (Michael Weatherly.) I hope you all have tissues handy. Though Ziva was confusingly absent from the season 11 premiere — a fact that went neither unnoticed nor forgiven by fans — she’ll be front-and-center for her big farewell episode, appropriately titled “Past, Present And Future.” Ziva’s ‘NCIS’ Replacement Revealed Ziva was a fan-favorite character from the moment she joined the show in season three — largely because of her chemistry with Tony — so adjusting to her departure will be understandably difficult for long-time viewers. Still, CBS is hop ...

Ask Matt: Mom & Laugh Tracks, Dexter and Broadchurch Finales
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
Why do sitcoms insist on using these horrible laugh tracks still? I found it so distracting it took away from any viewing pleasure. Funny you bring this up, as I was recently chastised by a star/producer for disparaging a show's "laugh track," reminded in no uncertain terms that shows like these are filmed in front of a live studio audience. Look at the ratings for The Big Bang Theory, the best current practitioner of this most classic form of TV comedy, from the same producer of Mom and with the same screaming soundtrack. Many of these shows are more theatrical in feel and joke-driven, but I laugh out loud just as often watching filmed comedies like The Middle, Modern Family, early-year 30 Rock and the parts of Parks and Recreation that don't involve Tom Haverford. While I understand the audience (not always canned) laughter is a deal-breaker for some, it's a part of TV tradition and history that I acknowledge and honor, when the show lives up to it. During the final two seaso ...

Cote de Pablo Could Return To 'NCIS'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Cote de Pablo's mysterious exit from "NCIS" has been one of the strangest TV stories of the summer. CBS CEO Les Moonves has said that they offered de Pablo "a lot" of money to stay, but they weren't able to reach a deal. And in an interview with TV Guide, de Pablo opened up about her departure, without really revealing her reasons for leaving. "As far as my decision to leave, that's a personal thing, and I'd rather leave it at that ... The idea of leaving was not something I toyed around with for a long time. It was an overwhelmingly hard thing -- at times terrifying," she said. De Pablo also added that she has no other immediate acting plans. "Leaving 'NCIS' was not planned, so there is no plan." But fear not, Ziva fans: de Pablo left the door cracked open for a possible future return to the show. "The greatest thing about this last episode is that Ziva doesn't die," she said. "As long as a character doesn't die, the character can always come back. Not that it would actually m ...

NCIS Has Eyes On Emily Wickersham As Ziva Replacement
Boom Tron - over 3 years
The time is nigh to start seriously considering someone as a replacement for the irreplaceable Cote de Pablo. Her run on NCIS will soon be over and we’ll have to say goodbye to her character, Ziva. CBS is paving the way for someone new to join the agency and have already found their first ­– and hopefully only – candidate. Say hello to Emily Wickersham, a wonderful actress you might recognize from her run on The Sopranos. She won’t be joining the cast immediately, but you can expect to see her before the winter break. Just keep in mind: she’ll never truly replace Ziva, but you should give her a fair chance. According to TVLine, Wickersham has signed a deal to appear in three episodes, with the option to become a series regular should she prove to be a good fit for the show and with the rest of the cast. She’ll be playing Bishop, a bright, educated, athletic, attractive, fresh-faced, focused and somewhat socially awkward new agent with a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fi ...
