The primetime Emmy nominations are out…so how did our favorite genres fare?
Naturally Game Of Thrones leads the pack by far, with 23 separate nominations (which led all shows), including three for Best Supporting Actress and two for Best Actor. It was good to see Tatiana Maslany still on the list for Orphan Black, hoping she finally gets what she deserves. Walking Dead was still noticeably absent, with two minor noms.
Here is the list of all the genre nominations (apologies for omissions…)
Fox already has a Marvel/X-Men-based TV series in production for it’s FX cable network in the form of Legion, but they aren’t standing pat, with comic book series starting to take over the airwaves of broadcast nets…Fox has ordered up a put pilot for another show, untitled at the moment, that will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.
The same production team for Legion and the X-Men franchise of Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, and Simon Kinberg will executive produce, along with the Daredevil/Jessica Jones team of Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Matt Nix (Burn Notice) is the writer/creator and will also executive produce.
