Winter is coming...to the set of Klondike. The crew of Discovery's first-ever scripted show cranks up the snow machine as stars Richard Madden and Sam Shepard button up their wool coats and two buses unload dozens of extras dressed in heavy 19th-century garb. The only problem? It's actually a beautiful May day on the Calgary set, with temperatures hovering in the high 80s....
Imagine a world in which the NFL, the NBA and Major League Baseball all decided to move their seasons to the same time of year. It would be chaos, for fans and the professional sports business alike. And yet, in television, that's essentially what happens during pilot season.
The broadcast networks traditionally order pilots during the first few months of the year. From there, it's a race to find the best actors, hire a crew, build sets and produce a show before May, when the upcoming fall schedules are announced. The field has always been crowded, but this spring, several cable networks and online retailer-turned-programmer Amazon are also developing new shows that they hope will go to series (cable networks typically produce pilots throughout the year, usually avoiding the spring).
Oscar-nominated actor Tim Roth has been cast in David Cronenberg's Knifeman, Deadline reports.
Roth will star in the series, based on Wendy Moore's biography of John Tattersall, an 18th-century self-taught surgeon, whose methods were unorthodox to say the least.
Lie To Me
Lie to Me's third season finale Monday and the uncertainty of its future left fans hungry for more — more criminal psychology, more romantic tensions and more of Tim Roth talking with his mouth full.
In the Fox drama, the Lightman Group specializes in interpreting microexpressions and body language, and leader Cal Lightman (Roth) is an expert at manipulating his own body's language to fluster and confuse people into inadvertently revealing their true motives. Executive producers Alexander Cary and David Graziano explain that Roth deliberately created Lightman's odd food mannerisms as part of his character's work strategy.
Lie to Me
Lie to Me's Season 3 finale dares to ask the question: What if Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg had killed one of his closest friends and partners?

Truthfully, the episode has nothing to do with Facebook, but you can't help but notice the parallels between it and the Oscar-nominated film, The Social Network, which explores the complicated personal and legal entanglements behind the founding of the most popular website on the Internet. In Lie to Me's tale, Nikita's Ashton Holmes plays Zach Morstein, the wunderkind co-creator of a popular dating application who Dr. Lightman (Tim Roth) fingers as the lead suspect in the murder of Zach's best friend and company co-founder.

Lie to Me
Two lies don't make a truth, but the two new back-to-back episodes of Lie to Me airing tonight are honest fun. In the first, Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) investigates a mental hospital that may be holding a patient against his will and promptly begins to lose his own mind after he's mysteriously medicated. "Cal starts to descend into madness," says exec producer Alex Cary. "He's quite aware of ...

Tim Roth, Lie to Me
When Lie to Me returns for its third season, Cal Lightman and his team of lie-detecting scientists will be freed from their ties to Ben Reynolds and the FBI.
But while the show's producers made that decision to allow Lightman (Tim Roth) to take on different kinds of cases, will the lack of checks and balances prove dangerous for the Lightman Group?
