Fear the Walking Dead arrives in August, new trailer drops

AMC's upcoming Fear the Walking Dead series is launching later on this summer (if you're hoping for a release date, we're a little closer to knowing). We have another teaser trailer, as well, and it is a sign that maybe AMC should work on its trailer-making abilities. Not to spoil anything, but the trailer has a man running. And that's it.

The BBC already has it working in a limited capacity with iPlayer, the broadcaster's video app.

Neil Gaiman’s ‘American Gods’ gets series order from Starz

Neil Gaiman's 'American Gods' will be arriving on your TV as a drama series thanks to a recent order from Starz. There have been rumbles and hopes in the past that an adaption would come about, but for different reasons they've all fallen through. HBO, for example, was set to produce a series based on American Gods a few years ago, but after a couple years they ended up passing it on. From there the production was nabbed by FremantleMedia, and it is that company that has received the order from Starz.
