HBO has given a pilot order to Criminal Justice, a new crime drama starring James Gandolfini, Deadline reports.
Criminal Justice, based on a 2008 BBC series of the same name, tells the stories of people who have been accused of murder, according to the report. Gandolfini (The Sopranos) will play Jack Stone, a jailhouse lawyer tasked with representing a Pakistani-American man who has been charged with a woman's murder. The actor will also executive-produce the series.
James Gandolfini is giving it another go with HBO. The actor is set to produce for the network and possibly star in Big Dead Place, according to Deadline.com...
This weekend, HBO offers up a comedy special (Talking Funny), a new movie about an historic TV phenom (Cinema Verite) and the return of a distinguished drama series (Treme). All are worth a look. It's actually an HBO grand slam if you count Game of Thrones, the triumphant adult fantasy series that was renewed for a second season shortly after the first episode aired. (HBO has a tradition of doing this, but rarely in recent years has the network's enthusiasm been so well deserved.)
In Thrones' eventful second chapter (Sunday, 9/8c), you begin to sense the series' range, as many characters begin disparate journeys through the sprawling land of Westeros: dutiful Ned Stark heads out with...

Supernatural (Friday, 9/8c, The CW)
Winchesters, meet Colt! As in: the real Samuel Colt, whose infamous demon-destroying gun has loomed large throughout Supernatural's mythology. This week, Dean gets to play cowboy — Sam is less thrilled — when Castiel sends the brothers back in time to the Wild West to get some guidance from the proverbial horse's mouth. Speaking of weapons, over on Fox's Fringe in the same time period, an apocalyptic scenario is triggered when Walternate revs up the doomsday device "over there," in hopes of rocking our (and specifically Peter's) world.
HBO will premiere its latest TV movie, Cinema Verite, on April 23, the network announced Thursday.
Starring Diane Lane, Tim Robbins and James Gandolfini, the film follows the precursor of reality TV back — PBS' 12-part documentary, An American Family. The 1973 series documented a...

James Gandolfini is willing to admit he's seen some reality television.
"I have watched Real Housewives of Atlanta. That was extraordinary," the three-time Emmy-winner said Friday at the Television Critics Association's winter preview sessions. Asked about Jersey Shore, the actor said, "No, no, no."
In HBO's upcoming original movie Cinema Verite, Gandolfini will play reality TV pioneer...
Have the Roaring '20s ever roared with such vibrant, violent, extravagantly entertaining life as in HBO's Boardwalk Empire? This instantly captivating period piece feels thrillingly modern as it captures with remarkable detail a chaotic time of invention and re-invention, of social progress and prosperity upstaged by the gaudy corruption and jazzy debauchery of the Prohibition era.

Boardwalk brilliantly marries Martin Scorsese's virtuosic cinematic eye to Terence Winter's (The Sopranos) panoramic mastery of rich character and eventful story. They romanticize Atlantic City as the Rome of a bootleg empire, where gangsters converge from Chicago and New York to traffic in illegal hooch (among other vices)...

In 1989, ABC premiered the Perfect Strangers spin-off Family Matters, which featured a relatively unknown cast. Although the series focused on a middle-class African American family in Chicago, the breakout star was the Winslows' annoyingly dorky neighbor, Steve Urkel. Twenty years later, Jaleel White, who played Urkel, still looks back at the show that catapulted him into stardom with fond memories and says that, yes, people still ask him to do the famous "Urkel" voice. The 33-year-old spoke to TVGuide.com about his favorite memories from his nine seasons on the show, the first season of which is in stores on DVD Tuesday.
TVGuide.com: What was it like working on Family Matters?
Jaleel White: It was an amazing experience. I learned physical comedy to a degree that most child actors never will. I really just became a student of it — became obsessed with it to be quite honest. I was fortunate to work with ...
