Primetime: BBC America's 'Orphan Black'
Published: September 8, 2014

BBC America pleasantly surprised viewers when it introduced them to street-wise hustler Sarah Manning (played by actress Tatiana Maslany), in its original series Orphan Black, and threw in a suspense/sci-fi twist when Manning discovers a mind-blowing secret that she is one of a series of genetically-identical individuals — otherwise known as clones.

Published: July 10, 2014

One of this summer’s most anticipated productions is the latest directorial contribution from Hollywood veteran Clint Eastwood, in the film adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Jersey Boys. Like the play, the film is a musical biography that traces the success of the 50’s-70’s singing group, the Four Seasons, lead by front man Frankie Valli. It follows the friends from their early days in New Jersey and how the bonds they formed early in their career helped them through a number of challenges, as they continued their rise to fame. At the center of the film, and key to telling the Four Seasons’ story on-screen are the performances of the group’s signature songs by the film’s stars.
