Justified season 6 premieres on January 20

FX has announced the premiere dates for its mid-season shows. Justified will be back on January 20. That’s two full months to catch up with the first five seasons, and hopefully we’ll get a few more teasers like the one below.

The explosive 6th and final season of Justified will air Tuesdays at 10 PM e/p, beginning January 20. Based on Elmore Leonard’s novella “Fire in the Hole,” Justified was developed by Graham Yost and stars Timothy Olyphant as Deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens, a lawman who finds himself drawn back to his home state of Kentucky. In Justified’s final season, the long brimming conflict between Raylan and Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) will finally come to a head. The series co-stars Walton Goggins as ‘Boyd Crowder;’ Nick Searcy as ‘Chief Deputy Art Mullen;’ Jacob Pitts as ‘Deputy Marshal Tim Gutterson;’ Erica Tazel as ‘Deputy Marshal Rachel Brooks;’ Joelle Carter as ‘Ava Crowder;’ and Jere Burns as ‘Wynn Duffy.’ Yost wrote the pilot and serves as Executive Producer/Writer on the series. Executive Producers on the series include Carl Beverly, Sarah Timberman, Michael Dinner, Fred Golan, Dave Andron, Don Kurt, Taylor Elmore, Timothy Olyphant, and the late Elmore Leonard. Justified is produced by Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions.

Hand of God announced for 2015

It’s official now. Hand of God is getting a full season.

From Variety:

Amazon Studios has given the go-ahead to its next two original series: drama “Hand of God,” starring Ron Perlman and Dana Delany, and Steven Soderbergh’s suburban comedy “Red Oaks.”

The two series, selected from Amazon’s third wave of pilots released in August, are slated to bow on Amazon Prime Instant Video in 2015. In addition, Amazon Studios has ordered additional scripts of Whit Stillman’s “The Cosmopolitans,” a half-hour comedy set in Paris, to further “explore the series.”

“We are excited to get working on full seasons of ‘Hand of God’ and ‘Red Oaks,’” said Amazon Studios VP Roy Price. “These shows come from some of the most talented creators in the business.” (…)

“Hand of God,” the TV debut of filmmaker Marc Forster (“Monster’s Ball,” “Finding Neverland,” “World War Z”). The dramatic thriller stars “Sons of Anarchy”’s Perlman and “Body of Proof”’s Delany (pictured, above). Show centers on Judge Harris (Perlman), a hard-living married man with a high-end call girl on the side, who suffers a mental breakdown and goes on a vigilante quest to find the rapist who tore his family apart. Forster, scribe Ben Watkins, Perlman, Brian Wilkins and Jeff King are exec producers, and Jillian Kugler is co-executive producer.

Hand of God picked up

I don’t think it’s official yet, but here is what Deadline is reporting:

It appears to be a decision day at Amazon Studios as options on the casts of the company’s third batch of pilots expire today. I’ve learned that the actors on drama Hand of God have been picked up, with the project fully expected to go to series.

New interview for Hand of God

A new interview with Garret showed up at The PC Principle today. It’s a nice, long one. Hit the link to read it.

Pop Culture Principle: Can you tell us the premise for Hand of God?

Garret Dillahunt – On its surface it is somewhat of a vengeance tale, but underneath I think it’s about what are the reasons people find to do the dark things that they do.

Pop Culture Principle: When you read the script for the pilot, what made you want to be part of the project?

Hand of God,Garret DillahuntGarret Dillahunt – I didn’t know who I was going to play yet. There were some conflicting things about what role I was going to play. So, I just got to read the story which is sometimes nice because you are not blinded by your own character. I thought the interrogation scene with the judge, the daughter-in-law and the cop was very unusual, unique and oddly believable. That scene made me really uncomfortable and I loved what was going to be required of that actress for that scene. Also, the final scene was a big surprise to me in the fact that he was right. You are thinking they have the wrong guy and then you are totally conflicted because they have the right guy, but is that the way to handle the situation. I really liked the fact that I didn’t see that one coming.

I know that ending may be sticking point for some people because people may thing we are trying to tell them that God is real or that we may be justifying religious terrorism. We aren’t doing either and it is just a story. It’s not an indictment of or championing any kind of religion. It’s just the way these people found a way to justify what they do. – The PC Principle
