TV News: Wolf, Gotham, Louis CK, Jamestown

Teen Wolf
The 45-second trailer for the second half of MTV’s third season of “Teen Wolf” is out ahead of its January 6th premiere. Rather than a collection of clips though, the trailer is a specially created, metaphor heavy piece in which a bloodstained Stiles is trapped in a waking nightmare.

So how will Fox’s upcoming Batman prequel-themed “Gotham” work exactly? Bleeding Cool have reported a rumor that suggests the pilot clearly spells things out:

“The pilot script for ‘Gotham’ has Detective Jim Gordon trying to solve a very famous double homicide – the Waynes”. This would confirm Bruce Wayne is a child in the series setting and is a legitimate way to keep Batman out of the picture.

Louis CK
Comedian Louis C.K. will stay with the FX network as he has just signed a development deal to create pilots and potential new series which he will supervise as executive producer.

He also has the option to write or direct any of them. His current show, “Louie”, returns for a fourth season next May after an extended break and is not affected by the new deal. [Source: USA Today]

History and former “Hell on Wheels” executive producer John Shiban are developing the mini-series “Jamestown” based on Benjamin Woolley’s 2007 book “Savage Kingdom”. Shiban will pen and executive produce with Jim Head.

The true story tale explores the beginnings of America and follow the dreamers and schemers who settled in the new colony of Jamestown – think “Deadwood” but with shipping. [Source: The Live Feed]
