NBC used Saturday’s primetime Olympics coverage to announce that Heroes is coming back with a new miniseries.
A press release was issued right after the commercial made the initial announcement on television.
Heroes Reborn is set to make its debut in 2015 as an “event miniseries” with original creator and executive producer Tim Kring in charge of its rebirth. The show has a 13-episode order.
“The enormous impact ‘Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke in a press release.
She continued, “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. We’re thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept. Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”
Right after, the official Heroes facebook published the announcement:
Trying to NOT get excited since Zach has stated before he won’t be up to a Heroes reboot. Let’s hope he changes his mind, since there’s no Heroes without Sylar.
Zachary today attended the Richard Chai Fashion Show, during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week that’s happening in New York. I have a few HQ pictures added to the gallery, as you can see by the previews below:
Thanks Ann for some of the pictures!
Zachary Quinto and Anton Yelchin were seen on a commercial which aired during yesterday’s Super Bowl broadcast.
The commercial was for the Xfinity X1 entertainment operating system, which “integrates the largest collection of video with social media features, interactive apps, web content and more in one easy-to-navigate, sleek viewing experience.”
In the short ad, Spock and Chekov beam into the modern-day Xfinity Innovation Center, which seems so futuristic to the duo, that Spock believes that they “must have encountered a temporal vortex.”
Watch it now:
Deadline is reporting that Zach is joining Rupert Friend in Fox International’s Hitman sequel, Agent 47.
Agent 47 is the project that previously was cast with Paul Walker in the lead. After the actor died tragically in a car crash, the project was postponed from its initial February start date and then recast. Friend (best known for Homeland) came aboard to replace Walker earlier this month. It will be directed by Aleksander Bach from a script by Skip Woods and Michael Finch. The project will now go before the cameras in March. Chuck Gordon, Alex Young and Adrian Askarieh are producing.
Zachary attended yesterday the opening day of the 2014 Global Performing Arts Conference at New York Hilton, in New York City. Check some pictures up at the gallery:
Zachary Quinto took some time from his busy stage and screen schedule to visit Howard Stern’s Sirius/XM radio show earlier this week and discussed his acclaimed performance in the current hit revival of the Tennessee Williams drama THE GLASS MENAGERIE as well as the STAR TREK film series, his Production Company and much more as part of a new interview.
