And the Next Musical NBC’s Going to Butcher Is…

There’s also some news on the peacock network’s upcoming Wizard of Oz show. No, it’s not the Game of Thrones-y one. Or the medical drama. Or Syfy’s post-apocalyptic version.

The Walking Dead Is Getting A Spin-Off Series, Unfortunately Does Not Star Daryl Or Michonne

AMC has decided to make another The Walking Dead-based television series but without any of the characters you know. (Is this where I make the joke about that show already being on air?) I hereby dub this new series, Other Walking Dead, à la Coraline

Facebook Reportedly Fears Alienating Its Users With Autoplay Ads. You Don’t Say?

Sadly, Facebook has not backtracked on their decision to introduce autoplay, television-style ads into the social networking site, but, at the very least, the company is delaying the process and taking care to accommodate concerns. Founder Mark Zuckerberg is reportedly taking precautions to ensure that the new type of advertising disrupts Facebook users as little as possible, while still making the company $2.5 million per day per advertising spot.

Cookie Monster’s Icona Pop Parody Involves Not Eating Cookies. Whaaaaat? [VIDEO]

I have no problem admitting I’m not “up on the pop music.” Even if you aren’t, though, you can enjoy Cookie Monster teaching a valuable lesson in restraint to a jaunty tune. I’m 112 years old. Don’t listen to me. Just COOKIE.

Syfy Is Doing A Gritty, Post-Apocalyptic Wizard of Oz Mini-Series. But Will There Be Sharks?

Ahhh, in a few months people will look back at this headline and not know what I’m talking about with the sharks thing. But let me have my Sharknado reference while it’s still relevant. Let me have it.

Orson Scott Card Responds to Call for Ender’s Game Boycott

This is not a good year to be a company whose high-profile Orson Scott Card-affiliated project is coming to fruition. And this past month was not particularly a good one for folks who’ve been on the board of the U.S.’s biggest national anti-marriage equality lobbying group since 2009. The ethics of enjoying content related to or produced by someone who shares political views you are opposed can be uncomfortable enough without the added conflict of active participation and monetary support at very senior and organized levels of a powerful organization working at cross purposes to your political views. Summit Entertainment has been rumored to already be nervous about the backlash against its summer blockbuster Ender’s Game, based on Card’s seminal YA science fiction novel of the same name, and it’s hard not to see some studio pressure behind Card’s response (it cannot be called an apology) to well worded calls for a boycott of the movie.

Here’s The New PlayStation 4…Controller

So, Sony had their huge PlayStation 4 event yesterday (watch the whole thing at Geekosystem). There was just one problem – nobody thought to bring a PlayStation 4. Ok, that probably wasn’t the case but really, guys? (And yes, we literally do mean GUYS.) We’ve got a look from a different angle after the jump.

Tron 3 Has Found A Writer But Will It Have An Audience?

I remember seeing preview footage of Tron: Legacy at San Diego Comic-Con and being pretty impressed. The 3D actually made sense and they seemed to have a good handle on a story that would do the original film justice. When I saw the full movie I thought it was good, not great, and didn’t expect them to make any more. While the idea was bounced around for a while, it looks like it’s finally gaining momentum.

Mars Attacks! Will Be Made Into a Broadway Musical, Also, Did We Ask For This?

John Layman (Chew) has decided to bring Tim Burton‘s Mars Attacks! to Broadway. Because … we don’t know. Nope, no idea. When the movie came out in 1996, very few people actually liked it, so our guess is that Layman wants this to become the next cult musical hit. Well … okay. Ack ack ack it is, then. Maybe I’ll change my mind about this by the end of the post.
