Matt Ryan wasn't a Comic-Con newbie this year, but the star of NBC's upcoming series Constantine took the experience to a different level last month in San Diego. The Welsh actor, who describes his experience as "just wow," attended the geek heaven convention last year for the video game Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, for which he'd done the motion capture for the character of Edward Kenway. But this year, as the star of the highly anticipated adaptation of the cult comic book hit Hellblazer, he was under a much brighter spotlight.
For his first TV venture, superstar romance novelist and screenwriter Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook, A Walk to Remember) saddles up to executive produce a Civil War Western with a feisty female in the crosshairs. The Lifetime movie (and backdoor pilot) Deliverance Creek (airing Saturday, Sept. 13 at 8/7c) stars Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) as widowed mother Belle Gatlin Barlowe, who turns outlaw to protect her family and land from corrupt bankers.

Smile, Mayim Bialik, you're the host of the new Candid Camera! The star of TV's No. 1 comedy, The Big Bang Theory, gets candid about reviving primetime's original prank show, which aired on and off for more than five decades.
TV Guide Magazine: Candid Camera? A real-life PhD in neuroscience should be hosting Jeopardy!, shouldn't she?
Mayim Bialik: I appreciate that! I'm actually terrible at Jeopardy! This is a really neat fit, because they're happy to have a female who's interested in the larger issues. As Peter Funt, my producer and cohost [son of the classic show's creator, Allen Funt], said, "I'm more than just a pretty face." [Laughs]
On August 8,1974, Richard M. Nixon, the 37th President of the United States, announced his resignation.

"We're the cockroach of series television," says Joel Kinnaman, who plays homicide detective Stephen Holder, of the unlikely survival of The Killing. As most every Twitter follower knows, the drama became the target of...

It's 2025, a world without strollers, preschool and Sesame Street. There's no need when the youngest child on Earth is 6 years old and every woman alive has become infertile. Humans are an endangered species.
That's the gut-wrenching premise of Lifetime's provocative new thriller The Lottery. You might call it a prequel to the 2006 movie Children of Men, a spiritual parable set in a violent, childless future. "While they have the same point of departure, it's a...

Netflix resurrects The Killing for one final six-episode season (its fourth) on Friday Aug. 1 (at 12:01 a.m. Pacific time). But to prep viewers who may have missed the show's run on AMC — or just need to bone up on the exploits of homicide detectives Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman) — the streaming video service is mounting a campaign this summer for viewers to binge the show's first three seasons.
TV Guide Magazine spoke with The Killing executive producer Veena Sud about the show's transition to Netflix, how it will change next season and whether this is truly the end for the drama. Sud and Netflix also unveil a new recap video, summarizing The Killing's first three seasons, below...

Sexton, who earned an Oscar nomination for the Children of Men screenplay. Like that film, The Lottery is set in a dystopian world struck by global infertility. The lottery in question is held by the U.S. government to determine which women will carry 100 newly fertilized embryos.
