Colony | Official Trailer - New Series on USA (Coming This Fall)

C O L O N Y - Coming This Fall from Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal and the USA Network

For those of you wondering what I (Gregg Sutter) have been up to lately, I’ve been doing research on Colony, a sci-fi/family espionage show created by Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal. It’s been a fantastic ride! Spread the word, please.

Graham Yost on How to Adapt a Book for TV

Vox Culture
Todd VanDerWerff

Few TV shows are as good — or as unjustly unsung — as FX’s recently concluded backwoods Western/rural noir Justified. The story of Raylan Givens (the sterling Timothy Olyphant), a wry gunslinger and US marshal who’s forced to return to his boyhood home in Kentucky and ultimately to pursue an old friend, Justified examines themes of family, history, and the pressure we feel to meet others’ expectations. Throughout its six-season run, it was a rich, often beautiful series — that nonetheless possessed some of the funniest dialogue on television.

‘Justified’ EP Chris Provenzano Inks AMC Overall Deal, To Adapt Gunsights

Deadline
Nellie Andreeva

Justified executive producer Chris Provenzano has signed an overall deal with AMC. Under the pact, he already is working on a drama series project, an adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s 1979 novel Gunsights. This makes it a nice continuation for Provenzano, who spent the last five years on FX drama Justified, based on Leonard’s novella Fire In The Hole.

Considered Leonard’s final Western novel, Gunsights, set in 1893, centers on two tough men and friends, scout Dana Moon and Army man Brendan Early, who used to work together, including a mission chasing an Apache chief into Mexico. Now, the two former partners are on the opposite sides of a conflict between a mining company and a scattering of settlers on an Arizona mountainside: Apaches, Mexicans, and former 10th Cavalry regulars. Brendan is employed by the mining company attempting to drive the settlers out of their homes, while Dana is an Indian agent, defending them.

When ‘Justified’ (almost) met ‘Sons Of Anarchy

HLN
Christopher Moloney

“At the very end, we had Raylan heading to the desert in California for a showdown with whoever survived on ‘Sons of Anarchy,’” Graham Yost told HLN at the Austin Television Festival.

It was just one of the scenarios the creator of ‘Justified’ suggested before settling on the ending viewers will find on “Justified: The Complete Final Season” now available on Blu-ray and DVD.

According to Yost, the ‘Sons Of Anarchy’ idea was inspired by a book Elmore Leonard was working on when he died in 2013, that would have sent Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens to California. ‘Justified’ was based on stories written by Leonard and when deciding how to wrap up the show, Yost and his writers asked themselves, “What Would Elmore Do?”

“We knew Raylan wasn’t going to die. That’s just not Elmore Leonard,” Yost said. “He didn’t kill off the good guys. What it boiled down to for us was: Will Raylan kill Boyd?”

Graham Yost Interview in Austin Chronicle

The Austin Chronicle
Raoul Hernandez

Nine years after its publication, Justified premiered on the F/X network in 2010 with Timothy Olyphant as a Federal Marshall and Walton Goggins as his nemesis. In April, after six seasons, Justified ended the same way it began: facing off Givens/Olyphant and Crowder/Goggins. Graham Yost, who developed the series for TV, appears eager to return to the ATX Television Festival and discuss it.

Let Your Characters Do the Talking


Mystery Scene
Ace Atkins

Elmore “Dutch” Leonard died cool. There’s a certain kind of magic in a man who came of age during the Great Depression and refused to become dated, repetitive, or, worst of all, soft. Not only was he one of the best crime writers of all time, he was—no matter the year—the hippest.

Forging a connection with a car that saved my life

The Dallas Morning News
Elizabeth HamiltonI read Hombre while driving west. I read how John Russell gave his life for some people who thought he was less than the clotted mud on the soles of his moccasins.

Because I loved the character so much, I named my car after him.
