Is this the year Game of Thrones finally breaks through the Emmy geek ceiling? Shows with sci-fi, fantasy or horror themes are rarely major awards contenders, despite earning great reviews and top ratings. In fact, in Emmy history, only one genre show has won Outstanding Drama Series — Lost, in 2005. More often, these shows get rewarded in the craft categories, like special effects and makeup, if they...

Amazon has ordered six pilots to series, including a drama from The X-Files creator Chris Carter, a half-hour comedy starring Malcolm McDowell and Bernadette Peters, and two children's programs. Additionally, Amazon has renewed Alpha House for a second season.

There's a crisis on the set of Crisis: Although the NBC drama is filming indoors on this late-January day, the high temperature outside the Chicago set is zero degrees (and with the wind chill, it feels like 30 below). Even inside, it's frosty, and star Gillian Anderson huddles for warmth by wrapping herself in a full-length parka between takes.
Amazon is poised to order four new series from the five original pilots the online company released last month, Variety reports.

It feels as though 2014 is quickly shaping up to be the year of the damaged detective on television.
It's fitting that Those Who Kill, A&E's gripping new drama series starring Chloe Sevigny and James D'Arcy, premieres the same week that HBO's True Detective will wrap up its inaugural season. Both shows follow law-enforcement officials who are haunted by the demons of their work — in Sevigny's case, recently promoted homicide detective Catherine Jensen.

Amazon released a second set of original pilots Thursday, which viewers can watch for free through Amazon Prime Instant Video.
The new slate of programming includes five kids shows and five prime-time shows, including two hourlong dramas. Viewer feedback will determine which shows will be picked up for full seasons.
