Christopher Webster [Celluloid 09.01.15] scifi thriller drama dystopic

From writer Nathan Parker, who blasted onto the scene as the writer of Duncan Jones' MOON (review), comes a new dystopian vision called Equals.

John Connor [Cathode Ray Mission 08.31.15] post apocalyptic zombies thriller

Season two of SyFy's Z Nation premieres Friday, Sept 11. QE is a huge fan, going so far as to laud Z Nation as a superior zombie experience to ratings juggernaut The Walking Dead.

Ah Nicolas Cage. By this point it's fairly common knowledge that the actor has a spending problem that's put him seriously in the red so that along with the great work he's been doing over the last few years, there have also been some not-so-great movies.

While AMC is wowing record breaking TV crowds with a post apocalyptic zombie drama, another TV network has slowly been building momentum on their own PA drama.
