According to startrek.com, a new Star Trek episodic series is coming to, well, not-TV in early 2017. The pilot will apparently air on CBS, but subsequent episodes will only be available through “CBS All Access,” their $6/month streaming service.

Hail to the king, baby. Multiple sources are reporting that the Starz premium cable channel is working on “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” a miniseries in which Bruce Campbell’s Chin will reprise the role of Ash from Housewares.
Sam Raimi will direct the first episode.

Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons -personal and literal.
Man, I hope it doesn’t get all grimdark and serious like so many of the media remakes of the last few years.

Any comments posted since then are probably lost forever, and will be replaced by comments on this post about how silly David is for doing such a thing.

What’s that? September 10 is more than “just” an Apple event? Why, yes, it’s Trailer Park Tuesday! Movie trailers behind the jump.

In the first of a zillion or so news announcements from San Diego Comic-Con, we present the teaser trailer for “Firefly Online,” a social MMORPG targeted to mobile devices. The game’s Web site is at keepflying.com, but it’s being hammered (not Captain Hammer) and may take a while to load.
