The news was revealed by American Horror Story’s chief Ryan Murphy.

The Walking Dead’s patient zero has been revealed

If you’re a fan of the show, you know by now that the so-called prequel — more aptly described as a companion series — to The Walking Dead will be premiering this month, and it’ll be called Fear the Walking Dead. That show has been progressively teased, starting first with what seemed to be a very lackluster teaser. We got a fleshed out look at this scene in the first full-length trailer, and as it turns out that full look showed fans far more than they realized: patient zero. Note: Spoilers ahead!

Hulu saves you from yourself, says no to binge watching

Hulu saves you from yourself, says no to binge watching

Netflix, as any subscriber knows, is all about entertainment gluttony (not that it explicitly encourages such behavior). The video streaming service elects to drop full seasons at once, and report after report indicates what users already know: viewers, when given a full season in a single moment, will largely watch it all in binging sessions, consuming episode after episode until the full season has been completed in a mere weekend or so. Hulu frowns upon this consumption habit and recently revealed it will not be supporting it.

Fear the Walking Dead: new trailer has LA burning down

AMC's all about the teasers, though it did finally give us a proper trailer not too long ago.

The newest trailer, though, backs up from the characters and the crowds to show us (this series') ground zero from up above. We get a look at it all, a snapshot of the sum total of the chaos and damage that happens when a city as big as Los Angeles is overrun with infected living-dead walkers.

Netflix changes ‘Fuller House’ plot to make it less depressing

Netflix changes ‘Fuller House’ plot to make it less depressing

Netflix, in what may be one of its more misguided reboots, has decided to bring back the 90s family-friendly television show Full House as a continuation of the original series. As we'd previously heard, it will feature some of the original cast, with the then-kids now being the show's adults going through life's mild follies and saccharine sweet learning moments. If you paid attention to the original announcement, you probably noticed something important: the storyline sounded really depressing. It seems Netflix noticed too, and it has done something about it.

Comcast frowns at Sling TV, rejects anti-cable ads

Comcast frowns at Sling TV, rejects anti-cable ads

Sling TV was arguably the brightest light in cable-cutters' eyes, at least when it launched earlier this year. The service is an Internet-only online live TV streaming service from Dish Network, and it -- despite some hiccups -- has largely enjoyed success. The service works by breaking content up into packages: there's one core package that costs $20/month, and additional packages priced at $5/month (with a couple exceptions) that aggregates similar channels. The service is everything cable isn't, and now its provoking has earned a reaction.
