TV Talk: Adrian Paul, famous for his Highlander television series, will change directions for his next film titled “Captain Drake.”

What changes you can expect in your television viewing because of the WGA strike.

Interview: Dekker Dreyer and Caitlyn Marr of Illusion On Demand join us to talk about starting up an on-demand television network, and how the market needs an outlet to air the plethora of science fiction, fantasy, and anime content that’s out there that hasn’t really been seen in a long time.

They are here to address that market. Illusion is currently available to 10 million homes in the US, so if it’s not in your area yet, contact your cable or satellite provider and ask them if they can add it to their on-demand lineup.

Future Talk: Ron Howard is moving full speed ahead with his production on the Da Vinci Code sequel titled “Angels & Demons.” Full production and shooting is set to begin this coming February.

Sarah Michelle Geller is set to star in “Possessed”, the Americanized remake of a 2002 South Korean thriller titled “Addicted.”
