BBC America Brings "Torchwood" to New York Comic-Con

Torchwood fans have something to look forward to next month at New York Comic-Con.

Digital cabler BBC America has announced that it will bring its highly rated sci-fi series Torchwood to New York Comic-Con 2009, presenting a sneak peek of the series' third season, Torchwood: Children of Earth, and a panel session with series lead Eve Myles and director Euros Lyn.

The Torchwood panel will be presented on Saturday, February 7th at 4:15 pm and marks Myles and Lyn's first U.S. panel appearance. Myles, of course, plays Torchwood mainstay Gwen Cooper, while Lyn directed the entire five-episode third season of Torchwood. (Of note: Lyn will also direct David Tennant’s final two episodes as the Tenth Doctor on Doctor Who.)

Torchwood: Children of Earth will air later this year on BBC America as a five-part television event that finds the Torchwood team battling for the future of the human race against the fiercest force they have encountered to date.

“Torchwood face their toughest battle to date in this new series,” said series creator/executive producer Russell T. Davies in a statement. “This latest threat causes global shockwaves and the team has to fight with everything they’ve got to survive. Viewers are in for a real treat.”

Stay tuned for news about a launch date for Torchwood: Children of Earth on BBC America.

Sigh. Between you and Anglophenia...I blame you for me running right to the site and buying my 3-day trade pass.

I'd probably follow Euros Lyn anywhere. And Joss. And Seth. And Joshua Jackson. (Ok, that last one isn't confirmed, I don't think, but he actually trumps the rest. IJS.)

Should we then interpret the fact that BBCA is bring Torchwood to New York rather than San Diego a sign that they'll air Torchwood before July and not after????

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
