NEWS - Chiamate il Moige! Anche se ansima pur essendo morto da tempo, "The Walking Dead" lancia l'album da colorare per i bambini, futuri (serial)killer di zombie come Zazzera-Carl

News tratta da "Uproxx"
Adult coloring books are all the rage these days, which used to make me feel a little sad for society … until I got one of my own and spent a week with a box of pencil crayons coloring all the things in the official Game of Thrones coloring book. Now that I’m hip to the craze, I’ve been eagerly awaiting more adaptations of my favorite shows into a form I can mindlessly scribble on when the real world gets a little too frustrating.
And now, the coloring book many have been waiting for has finally been announced: Insight Editions will be releasing a Walking Dead coloring book later this year. Made by the mad scientists who put together The Walking Dead‘s ridiculously elaborate pop-up book, this coloring book will be 96 pages of walker-killing, gun-wielding glory with tons of memorable scenes and moments from across the six seasons of the TV show.
That should keep you burning through your drawing supplies for a while. The only downside: It’s not scheduled to come out until Sept. 20. Until then, may I suggest the Breaking Bad coloring book, or the Dr. Who coloring book? A Walking Dead coloring book based on the comic and not the show is also set to drop May 10. And just a pro tip for those without Amazon Prime, you can always find a couple of pages of stuff to print out using Google search, your favorite geeky passion, and “coloring pages.”
Or you could just print out this page of The Walking Dead‘s coloring book and start there. Just be warned: It’s addictive, and may make your family wonder if you’ve mentally snapped and regressed back to kindergarten. Shut up, mom! You don’t understand any of my hobbies!
NEWS - Spazio, ultima eredità! Il figlio buzzicone di Gene Roddenberry, il papà di "Star Trek", produrrà il reboot di Bryan Fuller
News tratta da "Variety"
Like galactically minded father, like son: Eugene Wesley “Rod” Roddenberry Jr. has signed on to executive-produce CBS’ Star Trek reboot, TVLine has learned.Roddenberry Jr., president of Roddenberry Entertainment, will join fellow EPs Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin and showrunner Bryan Fuller for the Eye Network’s new take on his father’s classic space-exploration series.
Star Trek will launch on CBS in early 2017; subsequent episodes will then be available exclusively on CBS All Access, the network’s on-demand and live streaming service.
Roddenberry Entertainment chief operating officer Trevor Roth also has boarded the series as an executive producer.
Gene Roddenberry, the Great Bird of the Galaxy, left a finely feathered nest for all who love ‘Star Trek’ to enjoy,” Fuller said in a statement. “And it is only fitting that Rod Roddenberry and Roddenberry
Entertainment join our new Trek adventure to ensure that his father’s legacy of hope for the future and infinite diversity in infinite combinations runs through our tales as Gene Roddenberry intended.”
Roddenberry Jr. voiced his excitement about the series via statement, as well. “Moral dilemmas, human issues, complex characters and a genuine sense of optimism: These are the cornerstones of Star Trek and are what have made it such an influential and beloved franchise for the last 50 years.” He added: “While I will always be humbled by its legacy and the legions of fans who are its guardians, it’s a genuine honor to be joining a team of imaginative and incredibly capable individuals whose endeavor it is to uphold the tenets of Star Trek’s legacy while bringing it to audiences in a new era and on a contemporary platform.”

NEWS - Clamoroso al Cibali! Netflix ammazza la tv: è la causa del 50% della fuga dal piccolo schermo Usa. Nel 2020 prevista una crescita del 14%...

News tratta da "Uproxx"
Netflix is leaving an indelible mark on the TV biz — and while the streaming giant isn’t dealing a fatal blow to the industry, it is seriously cutting into traditional television ratings. In 2015, Netflix accounted for about half of the overall 3% decline in TV viewing time among U.S. audiences, according to a new study by Michael Nathanson of MoffettNathanson. The analyst calculated that based on an estimate that Netflix’s domestic subs streamed 29 billion hours of video last year (Netflix said members worldwide watched 42.5 billion hours in 2015). That would represent 6% of total American live-plus-7 TV viewing reported by Nielsen (up from 4.4% in 2014).
Moreover, Nathanson predicts Netflix’s total streaming hours as a percentage of TV viewing will continue to rise to about 14% by 2020. “Currently, Netflix is a source of industry pain, but not necessarily a cause of industry death,” he wrote in the note.
Executives at media conglomerates are now viewing Netflix as a growing threat. Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes, who once compared Netflix to the “Albanian army,” last fall said that the company may pull back on licensing TV content to SVOD services.

But not all TV networks are suffering from the rise of Netflix and other streaming-video services, Nathanson noted. Total viewing of networks from Time Warner, Scripps Networks Interactive, AMC Networks and Discovery Communications rose in 2015. A+E Networks’ viewing hours declined 15%, Viacom fell 13%, and NBCUniversal and Disney each dropped 5% overall.
In comparing TV viewing of Netflix vs. non-Netflix households, broadcast networks took the biggest hit in 2015. CBS viewing among Netflix subs was 42% lower than non-subs, with Fox at -35%, ABC at -32% and NBC at -27%, according to Nathanson’s analysis.
Meanwhile, viewing time of Disney’s networks last year was 11% higher in Netflix homes versus non-Netflix homes. Viacom saw a “modest” 5% year-over-year drop in Netflix homes; in that case, “it is unclear if this is as a result of viewership which has already been negatively impacted by SVOD services in prior years, or if the company’s younger-skewing viewers are switching back and forth more easily to watch both linear television and SVOD services,” Nathanson wrote.
Based on viewing time, Netflix in 2015 was bigger than smaller cable programmers like A+E and AMC, but not as large as the seven biggest conglomerates (NBCUniversal, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner, 21st Century Fox, Discovery and CBS).
One caveat on the analysis: Nielsen’s Live+7 excludes online and mobile viewing on TV networks’ sites and apps. But Nielsen hours-viewed numbers adjust for co-viewing, whereas Netflix’s reported data is per household. According to Nathanson, that means Netflix per-person viewing is underrepresented relative to Nielsen Live+7; thus, the analyst assumes the two factors largely cancel each other out.
Other studies have compared Netflix’s viewing to traditional TV. The service was on track to attract a larger 24-hour audience than each of the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC) some time in 2016, per an analysis last summer by FBR Capital Markets.
As of the end of 2015, Netflix reported 74.76 million streaming customers worldwide, including 44.74 million in the U.S.
One big challenge for Netflix now will be increasing its reach among older consumers, according to Nathanson, an age group that watches more traditional TV than younger demos. SVOD penetration among those 35-44 is 60%, then tapers off to 54% for the 45-54 cohort, 37% for 55-64 and 23% for those 65-plus.
Nathanson’s note Thursday, “Is Netflix Killing TV?,” is an update to one the analyst published last April.
NEWS - Torno seduto! Il fumetto della comunità nativa-americana "Scalped" diventerà una serie tv

News tratta da "Vulture"
From 2007 to 2012, one of the most critically acclaimed series in the comics industry was Scalped, a thrilling neo-noir about intrigue and organized crime within a Native American community. It ended after 60 issues, but like so many comics stories, it's getting a second shot at life on the screen. WGN America has reportedly ordered a pilot for a TV adaptation of Scalped, and the creators appear to be leaning toward having a cast comprised entirely of Native Americans. The series — written by Jason Aaron, drawn by R.M. Guéra, and published by DC Entertainment's Vertigo imprint — got a fair bit of criticism for its depiction of decay and depravity in the world of a reservation, but it also regularly topped best-of lists and made a star out of Aaron, who is now one of the hottest scribes in the business. The pilot will be penned by Banshee's Doug Jung. This isn't the only genre-fiction pilot WGN has asked for — they've also commissioned one for Roadside Picnic, an adaptation of a beloved Soviet-era Russian sci-fi novel about life on Earth after a brief alien visitation.

NEWS - Clamoroso al Cibali! Netflix tenta di strappare (il suo) "House of Cards" a Sky...(via twitter, per ora)

Articolo di Gian Maria Tammaro per "La Stampa"
"Da una parte c'è Sky, con una macchina solida e oliata, capace di offrire al pubblico tutto quello che vuole - intrattenimento, tv, sport, informazione - e dall'altra c'è Netflix, l'ultima arrivata, forte di una campagna marketing e comunicativa da grandi numeri. Nessuno ne parla, ma uno scontro - ancora agli inizi e difficile da mettere a fuoco - c'è. Sky sta investendo sull'online e sull'on demand, ha lanciato la nuova offerta di Box Sets (tutte le serie tv disponibili online, ciclicamente) e si prepara al ritorno di due dei suoi prodotti più forti: II trono di spade e Gomorra. Netflix, invece, continua a sondare il terreno, nel tentativo di capire effettivamente di che pubblico dispone (sarà anche per questo che non ci sono stati ancora proclami ufficiali sul numero di abbonati). L'ultimo atto di questa battaglia si è svolta su Twitter, dopo che una fan di House of Cards ha chiesto al profilo ufficiale Netflix quando la serie sarebbe arrivata in Italia come in tutti gli altri Paesi. Le ha «risposto» il Presidente Frank Underwood, il personaggio interpretato da Kevin Spacey, con una finta lettera ufficiale in cui assicura «di stare lavorando senza sosta per riuscirci». Dentro e fuori la finzione, con un click. Sky non ha rilanciato, preferendo continuare con la policy di sobrietà e pacatezza. E venerdì ha mandato in onda i primi due episodi della quarta stagione di House of Cards, di cui ha ancora l'esclusiva. Non sta cambiando solo il pubblico, ma anche il sistema. La televisione è troppo piccola per ospitare tanta offerta. La domanda, ora, non è chi la spunterà tra Netflix e Sky, ma come lo scontro modificherà l'intrattenimento. Si punterà finalmente sui prodotti online, per tutti, sempre disponibili? O si continuerà a trincerarci dietro vecchi palinsesti, capaci ancora di grandi numeri ma non di rinnovarsi?
GOSSIP - Buon 8 marzo con Kaley Cuoco che dopo il divorzio urla: "sono una f*ucking feminist!" 
Kaley Cuoco shows off her short shorts on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine’s April 2016 issue, on newsstands March 8.
Here’s what the 30-year-old Big Bang Theory star had to share with the mag:
On her marriage with Ryan Sweeting ending: “[What happened] changes the way I look at marriage, and that makes me sad. It does not change the way that I look at love. I cannot wait to be in love again. I don’t feel like I am ready yet… which is so different for me. I dive into everything.”
On her words being misconstrued when an interviewer asked if she was a feminist: “Of course I’m a f*cking feminist. Look at me. I bleed feminism. I get equal pay to my male costars on a big show, I have my own home, I’m as independent as you could possibly be.”
On rumors that she and her co-star Johnny Galecki are back together: “Johnny and I are very close now, but the worst part about that is I don’t want stories like that, especially during this divorce, to hurt my ex. We have nods with each other. Johnny and I do this thing like a nod that says, ‘I got you. I get it.’”
On kids: “I thought I’d have a baby by now! You see your life going one way, and then it’s the direct opposite way. I’m waking up going, Oh my god, my life just flipped upside down.”

L'EDICOLA DI LOU - Stralci, cover e commenti sui telefilm dai media italiani e stranieri

"Mr. Robot", la serie più coinvolgente e trascinante 
"Confesso: da tempo non mi capitava di vedere una serie così coinvolgente e trascinante. Per giunta, una di quelle storie che vanno dritte al cuore dei media, là dove si addensa tutto il peggio e tutto il meglio della nostra «società trasparente», là dove ogni aspetto della vita del singolo sembra felicemente e incoscientemente prigioniero di una tela di ragno, tessuta da qualche entità tecnologica. Parlo di «Mr. Robot» (Mediaset Premium Stories, giovedì, 2L10). Scritta da Sam Esmail e interpretata da Rami Malek (entrambi sono di origine egiziana), la serie, come ha scritto il New York Times, è un cyberthriller «intriso di nichilismo pessimista on line sul capitalismo e la diseguaglianza. È la prima serie che elegge un hacker a protagonista, solitamente relegato sullo sfondo, facendolo diventare una versione 2.0 del Travis Bickle di Taxi Driver». Elliot Alderson è un esperto di sicurezza informatica e lavora per una ditta di cyber-security. Viene descritto come un sociopatico, paranoico e dedito alla morfina, convinto che i social media siano un «surrogato dell'intimità». Si vive come una specie di giustiziere della notte (uno dei tanti), pronto a smascherare trafficanti di pedopornografia così come ipocriti fidanzati di amiche e colleghe. L'unico modo che Elliot ha di interagire con gli altri è l' hackeraggio, entrare nei loro computer per cavarne le vite segrete. Un giorno Elliot viene avvicinato dal misterioso, enigmatico e anarchico Mr. Robot, che cerca di arruolarlo in attività clandestine contro il capitalismo... Al tema di grande interesse (ogni giorno la cronaca ci offre un dramma legato alla vorace attualità tecnologica) si accompagna una scrittura di rara efficacia. Rami Malek è bravissimo a interpretare un personaggio alla disperata ricerca di normalità la cui mente è popolata da fantasmi (da Steve Jobs a Lance Armstrong), da manie (il pesciolino rosso si chiama Qwerty), da riscatti sociali".
