Sci Fi Network Changes Name to SyFy, Unleashes Programming Slate Full of Phonetically Simple Shows

NBC’s Sci Fi channel, often ridiculed for the decisions made by its seemingly moronic leaders, has outdone itself now by changing its name, officially, to SyFy.

If all goes well, Not Mrs. Tim Burton will be joining actors such as Christian Bale, Moon Bloodgood, Bryce Dallas Howard and Josh Brolin (supposedly) in the […]

Pilot Watch: “Virtuality” on Fox

The Hollywood Reporter ran a blurb about casting in some upcoming TV pilots, including Fox’s “Virtuality”.
