Gilmore Girls and Dawson's Creek Reunions Are (Finally) Happening!

Alexis Bledel, Lauren Graham

It's the television reunion you've been waiting for: The cast and creator of Gilmore Girls are finally gathering at the 2015 ATX Television Festival.

"So after years of peace and quiet these lunatics have chosen to get the chattiest chicks in the world back under one roof? Really? Okay. You asked for it," Amy Sherman-Palladino said in a statement. "Gilmore was the highlight of my ridiculous life. I can't wait to sit with these unbelievable broads and relive a time where sleep did not exist where stress and coffee were mama's little helpers and where we all dove into the deep end together to make something weird and very very cool."

MTV Orders Scream Series from Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson

Ghostface

When Jamie Kennedy's Randy Meeks spouted off rules of horror films in the 1996 film horror satire Scream, he forgot one: Always try to remake a successful horror film. Even without Randy's advice, the decision-makers at MTV knew that one and have green-lit a remake of Scream for the small screen, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Stalker: Run, Don't Walk (All the Way to Nashville)

Dylan McDermott, Maggie Q

TV really doesn't get much uglier or more cynical than CBS's Stalker (Wednesday, 10/9c), a crass and calculated attempt to keep the Criminal Minds crowd appeased for yet another hour of tacky, icky violence — disproportionately perpetrated against unfortunate women — presented within a glum, indifferently acted formula.

Kevin Williamson Defends Stalker's Violence: "I Enjoy Scaring People"

Maggie Q, Dylan McDermott

Kevin Williamson is no stranger to defending his work. At the Television Critics Association tour this summer, the creator of The Following and CBS' new thriller Stalker raised eyebrows by encouraging a critic to just "change the channel" if he didn't like what he was seeing on screen. ("I think some people are still kind of raw over The Following," Williamson admitted to TVGuide.com after the panel. "They're fair questions.")

And there's no question that Stalker won't be for everybody. Accusations of excess violence and even misogyny have been leveled at Williamson based on the pilot, whose opening sequence shows a woman screaming as she getting burned alive in her car. But he insists that Stalker is not as violent as The Following, and appeals to a different sense of fear.

CBS' Stalker From Kevin Williamson Is Not Another Following

Dylan McDermott, Maggie Q

Between Scream's violent murders, The Vampire Diaries' blood-lusting vampires and The Following's serial killers, Kevin Williamson has become synonymous with horrifying tales that will most likely end in tragedy. Although his new CBS drama Stalker goes down a similarly dark route in the show's pilot, the executive producer promises this is a very different show from his past work, in particular the bloody and often gruesome Following.  

"In my mind, it's apples and oranges," Williamson told reporters at the Television Critics Association's fall previews on Thursday. "'We have... read more
