‘Live Pd’: Secrets Behind A&E’s Addictive Cop Show, and How It Almost Goes Off the Rails Each Week

‘Live Pd’: Secrets Behind A&E’s Addictive Cop Show, and How It Almost Goes Off the Rails Each Week
There’s nothing quite like “Live Pd,” the hit A&E series that follows cops and sheriffs — live, in real time, as they patrol various cities and counties across the country. The series began as an eight-episode experiment, for two hours a week, back in October 2016. But as it turned into a sensation, A&E kept expanding the show’s footprint.

Now, “Live Pd” airs twice a week, on Friday and Saturday nights, for three hours both evenings (from 9 p.m. to midnight). And other than a brief five-week hiatus in September, it’s been on the air for most of the year.

“It is by far the most frustrating, challenging, and gratifying program that I have ever been involved with,” said executive producer Dan Cesareo, whose Big Fish Entertainment is behind the series. “No two nights are the same. You could have a great show one night, where we

The Top Five Armin Mueller-Stahl Movie Roles of His Career

Armin Mueller-Stahl is a German actor that has become quite well known in his career as a very astute individual and very devoted to his roles. He typically plays someone that is either shrouded in mystery or is incredibly influential, or both. In a lot of his roles within the past twenty to thirty years he’s been that kind of character that you either don’t want to associate with because he’s so difficult or can’t figure out because he seems to live part of his life in the shadows and is extremely guarded. His characters usually aren’t the lead but

Netflix’s ‘A Christmas Prince’ Is Just the Start of the Streaming Giant’s Quest for Christmas Dominance

Netflix’s ‘A Christmas Prince’ Is Just the Start of the Streaming Giant’s Quest for Christmas Dominance
If you haven’t watched Netflix’s “A Christmas Prince” yet, then you’re missing out. It’s not that the movie is really all that good. It’s Ok, but we’ll get back to that in a second. What matters is that this fairy tale rom-com has helped Netflix begin its mission: to steal Christmas from cable networks.

While networks like Lifetime, Freeform, Up, and Ion have been cranking out some holiday rom-coms and programming, Hallmark is the undisputed leader of Christmas fare. The channel began its new original Christmas movies back in October, ruled over the five-day Thanksgiving weekend, and is still making a splash with yuletide movies like “The Christmas Train” and “Switched for Christmas.”

‘The X-Files’ Season 11 Review: Mulder and Scully Return, and The Results Are Genuinely Exciting

‘The X-Files’ Season 11 Review: Mulder and Scully Return, and The Results Are Genuinely Exciting
When “The X-Files” returned to Fox in January 2016 after lying dormant for years, no one was really quite sure what to expect. After all, sometimes when a beloved franchise dusts itself off for a new run of episodes, it works. But sometimes, the end result is best described as, well, dusty — which was the case with Season 10 (or, if you like, a special Fox “event series”), a mixed bag of episodes which reunited stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny with creator Chris Carter, but at best was clumsy and at worst a pale echo of the once-great drama.

In reviewing the Season 10 cliffhanger finale, “My Struggle II,” IndieWire noted that if the show had ended there forever, it would have been a real tragedy for the show’s legacy. However, the season overall was enough of a disappointment to leave us nervous about what would happen when Fox (inevitably) greenlit a follow-up season.

Exclusive: Many of the victims in Hollywood's ever-widening sexual harassment and assault scandal are members of SAG-aftra, but many of the alleged perpetrators are members of the union as well.

Blair Brown On Uma Thurman, Queen Lear – And The Mystery Of ‘Molly Dodd’

Blair Brown plays a D.C. doyenne of the right and designated head of the Fed in Beau Willimon’s Broadway play The Parisian Woman. This makes her the foil for Uma Thurman’s ambitious lefty agitator, who hopes Brown will put in a word with the unnamed boss – that would be Donald Trump – advancing her husband’s transition from tax lawyer to a choice judgeship. Fat chance. In what is easily the play’s most crackling scene, the two women engage in a conversational tango…

How Movie Trailers Have Evolved in the Last 100 Years

It’s amazing to see how movie trailers have evolved in the last century when you think about how they started out. Back when they were first used they were little more than intros used to bring in something that was innovative and new, but as of now they’re what the public looks forward to more than the movie at times. How the movie trailer has been used over the years really hasn’t changed much, but the idea that they have been adapted to give away so much of the movie seems a bit insane. Back in the day they were
