This Isn't Your Parent's Riverdale
Huffington Post - 28 days
Adaptations are tricky. They can either go horribly, HORRIBLY wrong or they can be a surprise hit. There doesn't seem to be any middle ground. This is especially true if the property being adapted is something that has been beloved for generations. The key to any good adaptation is to be different, to give it something the audience hasn't seen before, to be unique. But at the same time, it must stay true to the heart of the original property. When I first heard that The CW was going to be airing a television series based on the Archie Comic books called Riverdale my first thought was "Why?" The comics are bright, cartoony, and all about clean good-natured fun. They're about as Americana as you can get and I wasn't quite sure how it would translate into a live-action medium. The answer is... perfectly. Produced by Greg Berlanti (Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow eat), Riverdale is a dark and dramatic take on the wholesomeness that the "town with pep" is known for and it's icon ...

Freddie Prinze, Jr. Makes Out With Madchen Amick on Witches of East End
US Magazine - over 3 years
There's no doubt about it: Freddie Prinze, Jr. has that It factor to make women swoon, and lucky for Witches of East End's Wendy (Madchen Amick), her chemistry with Prinze's character Leo is magic in more ways than one. In a sneak peek from the Sunday, Oct. 27 episode of Lifetime's supernatural drama, the alluring Wendy is drawn to Leo after meeting him unexpectedly in the halls of his apartment building. PHOTOS: '90s TV actors through the years Over a glass of red wine, Leo and Wendy chat about Leo's career as Wendy tries to secure a new ingredient for her latest protection spell. Initially hesitant to get close to Leo, she attempts to slip out of his apartment unnoticed when he goes to change his shirt and clean up a wine stain, only to find him shirtless and oozing sex appeal when he returns. "I can stay for a few more minutes," says Wendy, clad in just an oversize button-down, rushing over to make out with him. "I'm not very good at goodbyes. I'm much better at hellos!" ...

‘Witches Of East End’ Series Premiere: The Beauchamps Powers Are Reborn
Hollywood Life - over 3 years
Did you fall under the spell of Lifetime’s other-worldly new drama? Give us your review of the series premiere! The witching hour… is here! Lifetime’s new series Witches of East End premiered Oct. 6, thrusting viewers into the supernatural drama of the Beauchamp family. Matriarch Joanna (Julia Ormond) intended on raising her daughters magic-free, but the arrival — or, rather, the return – of a sinister force, hellbent on taking down every last Beauchamp, threw an epic monkey wrench in that plan. Joanna’s estranged sister, and occasional black cat, Wendy (Madchen Amick) showed up to fill the Beauchamps in on their new predicament. And this little familial shake-up couldn’t come at a less convenient time, especially for younger-daughter Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum), who’s preparing to say “I do” to her perfect fiancé Dash (Eric Winter). The arrival of Dash’s brother Killian (Daniel DiTomasso) also complicated things — especially when he and Freya started going at it during her engagemen ...

'Witches Of East End' Sneak Peek: Lifetime Gets Raunchy In New Supernatural Series (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Is there such a thing as too much nudity? We're betting most viewers will say no, especially when it comes to Lifetime's "Witches of East End," a steamy new supernatural drama premiering Sunday, October 6 at 10 p.m. ET. As you can see in our exclusive sneak peek above, the show's stars -- including Jenna Dewan Tatum, Rachel Boston, Madchen Amick and Julia Ormond -- aren't afraid to bare all for their craft (no pun intended), although Amick did recently joke to reporters, “I’m runnin’ around set far too naked, far too often.” That's mostly a result of her character Wendy's ability to shift between human and cat form, which often puts her in troublesome (and clothing-free) predicaments. "Witches" is based on Melissa de la Cruz's novel of the same name, and has been described as "'Practical Magic' meets 'Dallas,'" which means viewers can expect soapiness, scares and sex, along with a hefty helping of mystery. Intrigued? Check out a description of the series below and hit the commen ...

'The Witches Of East End': Cast Talks Details Of Lifetime Show
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Something wicked is coming to TV, but not in a creepy, watch-from-behind-a-couch-cushion kind of way. (No? Just me?) "The Witches Of East End" centres on the sleepy town of East Haven, which gets injected with a little bit of magic when two sisters -- free-spirited wild child Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) and shy, goofy Ingrid (Rachel Boston) -- discover they possess stunning powers. It's a secret their mother, Joanna (Julia Ormond), has been keeping from them for hundreds of years (that's right, hundreds) but you'll soon understand why she did it. No, no, the show isn't based on the 1987 movie that stars Jack Nicholson and starts with "Witches of East..."; rather, the Lifetime drama (which is executive-produced by Maggie Friedman, who brought "Eastwick" to the small screen) is inspired by Melissa de la Cruz's best-selling novel that follows the lives of the Beauchamp family. The first thing viewers will notice is that the women are all gorgeous and sport big, beautiful soap opera hair, ...

"Witches of East End" Casts a Spell
Huffington Post - over 3 years
TV Review Jackie K Cooper "The Witches of East End" (Lifetime) In 1987 there was a quirky film titled "The Witches of Eastwick." It starred Jack Nicholson, Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer and Susan Sarandon. The cast made the movie. Now there is a new Lifetime series based on Melissa De la Cruz' novel of the same name "The Witches of East End." Its cast includes Julia Ormond, Eric Winter, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Madchen Amick and Virginia Masden. Its success too will depend on this cast. The premise of the TV series, just like the premise for the movie, is silly. There are too many witches, shape shifters, etc running around for any of it to be taken seriously. But Ormond, Amick and Masden have such star power that they demand to be watched. Add in Dewan-Tatum in a totally delightful performance and you have a series that has to be at least tried out for ...

Get ready to meet the "Witches of East End." The newest Lifetime drama, inspired by Melissa de la Cruz's New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, will premiere on Sunday, October 6 at 10 p.m. ET, just in time for Halloween.

Freya's engaged to the man of her dreams, Dash Gardiner (Eric Winter), but she's also drawn to his brother Killian (Daniel DiTomasso) -- sound familiar, "Vampire Diaries" fans? -- and she starts to notice some bizarre things happening around her. Though neither Freya nor her sister knows about their bewitching birthright, their aunt, Wendy (Amick) arrives with a warning that forces Joanna to reveal the truth. The ...

William Bradley: Mad Men's Master Class in American Studies Rolls on to Some Mystery Dates
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Well, that was one of the spookier Mad Men episodes, complete with not one but two dream sequences. As always, there be some spoilers ahead discussing this episode, the aptly titled "Mystery Date." The horizon of the future, i.e., the later '60s, is getting much darker, and a lot closer. New York City has slid past its peak, at which it glittered as the series began. Things increasingly don't work, we're seeing some people who look rather unkempt. And they're not the hippies, because those folks have yet to arrive. Incidentally, you can see all my Mad Men pieces, going back to 2009, here in The Mad Men File. It's mid-July 1966. The worst things are happening elsewhere, but they're getting closer. Richard Speck raped and murdered eight student nurses in Chicago, and race riots have cropped up in the Windy City as well. Much of the Mad Men crew is neurotically ogling death pictures from Chicago, chattering uneasily about the salacious brutality of the mass murder and wo ...

Madmen Goes Twin Peaks, not Christina Hendricks related
Boom Tron - almost 5 years
AMC’s  Madmen gets visit from Madchen Amick, former Twin Peak Waitress Mad Men’s fifth season has (allegedly) been off to a great start, and that trend will hopefully continue with the apparent addition of Twin Peaks alumna Madchen Amick, who will be guest starring in an upcoming episode of the Emmy award winning series. I’ll be frank with you Internet; I haven’t seen any of the new episodes of Mad Men. I know, I know. It’s a crime against nature, but that’s what happens when you become invested in way too many TV shows that air on Sundays. I’m hoping to catch up soon, but I’m not making any promises! Because of my lack of knowledge, my speculations about Amick’s casting may seem a little off. TVLine reported Amick will be appearing in this coming Sunday’s episode, titled “Mystery Date.” This will be the only episode that features her character, which was unfortunately not given a description of any kind. Because I’m not caught up, it was difficult to search for information witho ...
