- In Hollywood, franchises are king. So even when something like ‘The Walking Dead’ is losing viewers, AMC can’t let it go away completely. Following Andrew Lincoln’s final episode, AMC announced the character of Rick Grimes would live on in three movies. No word yet on where these movies would be played.
- The dispute between HBO and Dish Network continues. HBO went dark on the network starting November 1. This comes just a few months after AT&T acquired Time Warner and the Justice Department tried to stop the mega-merger.
