Supergirl
CBS's Supergirl is the most talked-about new series of the fall, and Starpulse had the opportunity to learn more about it during San Diego Comic-Con. We spoke to executive producer Greg Berlanti, as well as supporting actors Mehcad Brooks and Jeremy Jordan, to find out what's so super about the latest DC Universe show to hit the airwaves.

Given their successes with Arrow and The Flash, are the producers bringing anything from those series to Supergirl? "We try and make every one different from the other ones," explained Greg. "Obviously, you learn a lot of things. You learn structurally, y...

How Does 'The Man In The High Castle's' Frank Spotnitz Succeed?
Frank Spotnitz's resume reads like a TV lover's dream: shows like The X-Files, Strike Back, Hunted and Transporter: The Series. His latest, Amazon's original series The Man in the High Castle, is one of the best literary adaptations ever to hit the small screen. We sat down with Frank at last week's San Diego Comic-Con to discuss how he's putting together High Castle's first season, and how he is one of the best writer-producers in the business.

"The response was much more than I expected. The response was so positive and it seemed to strike a chord with people," he said of the High Castle...

'Supernatural' Stars Preview Season 11 At San Diego Comic-Con
The CW's Supernatural is coming back for its eleventh season this October, and it's going back to what the series is all about. That's what we learned when we sat down with show stars Jared Padalecki (pictured), Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins at last week's San Diego Comic-Con. The trio also told us why they think Supernatural has lasted this long, and discussed last season's controversial character death - so if you're not caught up, SPOILER ALERT!

"What I'm excited about this year is that the boys are back on the same page," said Jared. "We've had these things that bring the boys apart ...

The Mystery Of 'Blindspot' Arrives At San Diego Comic-Con
NBC is banking heavily on Blindspot, and with good reason. The new drama series comes from a top-notch creative team and has a first-rate cast. Starpulse spoke to show creator Martin Gero, executive producer Greg Berlanti (yes, that Greg Berlanti who runs half of television), and star Jaimie Alexander to discuss who is Jane Doe - and how much about her we'll get to learn in the first season. This is not your typical TV mystery.

Firstly, it's not some overcomplicated idea; it simply sprung from a random thought. "I was literally lying in bed one morning," explained Gero. "I just had this im...

'The Player': Fall's Most Exciting New Series Hits Comic-Con
The best new series of the fall is NBC's The Player, and Starpulse got our first look inside the Vegas-set thriller at last week's San Diego Comic-Con. We sat down with series creator John Rogers (Leverage) and stars Philip Winchester (Strike Back) and Wesley Snipes (Blade) to learn about the game you won't want to miss.

The Player has one of the more unique concepts of the 2015 season, focusing on Alex Kane (Winchester) as he's drawn into a world where the rich and powerful gamble on crime and whether or not he can stop it - as personified by "pit boss" Mr. Johnson (Snipes) and "the deale...

'Archer' Cast & Producers Tease Season 7 At San Diego Comic-Con
We had to do a little intelligence gathering at last week's San Diego Comic-Con, seeing what we could find out about the upcoming seventh season of FX's Archer. The cast and producers were only through the first two episodes of the new cycle, but here are a couple of the hints and teases we got out of them. Obviously, SPOILER ALERT!

"We're doing something a little different this coming season," revealed creator Adam Reed. "[We've] got some new locations going on, some fresh new looks. Not necessarily a new era. Just people are going to be wearing some different clothes.

"It's still high-s...

Last week, the Impractical Jokers once again crashed San Diego Comic-Con - this time, with an entire museum in their honor. Starpulse visited the Museum of Impractical History and caught up with two of the funny foursome, Joe Gatto and James "Murr" Murray, to learn about the new episodes that start tonight and what it's like for them to be Comic-Con celebrities.

Last Friday, the guys visited San Diego's Humphreys Concerts by the Bay with their "Where's Larry?" Tour, and it was a little bit of an achievement. "We've only done one other show outdoors in four years of touring," Murr revealed....

Bryan Cranston's 'Your Mother' Joke: Cranston Burns Fan At Comic
Bryan Cranston and your mother- a combination that could only happen at Comic-Con. According to E! News, the former Breaking Bad star was taking questions at a Comic-Con panel on Thursday when he turned a question around on a fan- and unleashed the ultimate "your mother" joke.

At the panel, a Breaking Bad fan asked Cranston (somewhat awkwardly) what he did in Albuquerque while filming Breaking Bad, and what kinds of things he liked to do around town. Apparently, the fan is an Albuquerque native- he wanted to know what Cranston thought of his hometown!

"How was it?" asked the fan. "'Cause,...

Lola Pics
With the Dances With Films Festival 2015 having been such a daunting film watching event for one movie geek, sadly some stellar work inevitably falls through the cracks. One such gem recently brought to our attention was an original and at times heartbreaking drama titled "Lola’s Last Letter." In the film a young twenty-two year old ex-con named Lola decides to create a video apology letter for a mysterious man named Henry as a penance of sorts for unknown events. The film is the brainchild of director/writer/producer/actress Valerie Brandy (who also served as editor - but refused to tak...
