The Voice Names Chris Martin As Key Adviser For The Battles: Round Two

Chris-Martin1(NBC) NBC’s Emmy Award-winning musical-competition series “The Voice” has confirmed Coldplay frontman Chris Martin as the key adviser for the current season. As part of a new format change, Martin will serve as a mentor for the artists on each of the four teams, a “Voice” first.

Coldplay, which formed in 1997, has sold more than 60 million copies of their five No. 1 albums. Coldplay’s sixth studio album, “Ghost Stories,” is set for a May 19 global release.

The newly created The Battles: Round Two will begin Monday, March 31 and pit the remaining artists from each team—all previous winners and stolen artists—against one another to perform an agreed-upon song. Both artists will sing for their coach’s approval in hopes of moving forward to the Playoff Rounds.

Martin advised each of the The Battles: Round Two performers on vocal techniques, stage presence and the importance of tailoring songs to fit their persona and strengths. These artists will continue to try and earn the support of their respective coaches, who will be forced to decide who will move on to the Playoff Rounds. Each coach will have the opportunity to strategically steal one more artist in this round.

The Live shows begin Monday, April 21. The top 12 artists will compete each week and the at-home audience will vote to save their favorite artists. In addition, during each Live results show, the three artists with the lowest number of votes will be eligible for the “Instant Save.” These artists will each perform a new song that represents why they should earn the save. Then, America will have the opportunity to save their favorite performer by tweeting out #VoiceSave along with the artist’s name. The two singers with the lowest number of votes will be sent home each week until one winner is announced as “The Voice” on May 20th.

· “I’ve been a fan of John Constantine since he was first introduced in 1985. This Constantine, envisioned by Neil Marshall and embodied by Matt Ryan, looks like he sprang directly from the comics’ covers. Fans old and new are going to be in for a treat,” said executive producer David S. Goyer.

· Featured in hundreds of comic book issues, John Constantine has been a DC Comics staple since his first appearance as a supporting character in Swamp Thing in 1985. The character was subsequently featured in his own bestselling Hellblazer and Constantine comic book series.

· UK native Matt Ryan (Layer Cake, The Tudors, Torchwood) stars as the title character.

The CONSTANTINE pilot is executive produced by Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist, Dexter) and David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight films, Man of Steel). Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) is directing from a teleplay by Daniel Cerone, with story by Daniel Cerone & David S. Goyer.

CONSTANTINE is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television, and is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.

History Orders 8-Hour Television Event Texas Rising

History1HISTORY has ordered the eight-hour television event “Texas Rising” (WT) from A+E Studios and ITV Studios America, produced by Thinkfactory Media with Leslie Greif (Hatfields & McCoys) serving as executive producer, it was announced today by Dirk Hoogstra, Executive Vice President and General Manager, HISTORY & H2. The event series, premiering in 2015, will detail the Texas Revolution against Mexico and the rise of the legendary Texas Rangers. Two-time Oscar-nominated director Roland Joffé (The Kiling Fields, The Mission) is set to helm with an all-star cast including:

· Bill Paxton (Two Guns, Edge of Tomorrow, Hatfields & McCoys) as Sam Houston, the father of Texas.

· Brendan Fraser (The Mummy, Journey To The Center Of The Earth) as Billy Anderson, a Texas Ranger with Comanche Indian ties.

· Ray Liotta (Goodfellas, The Place Beyond The Pines) as Lorca, an Alamo survivor seeking brutal revenge.

· Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, Magic City) as “Deaf” Smith, a deaf and grizzled veteran Texas Ranger with an advanced case of consumption.

· Thomas Jane (Hung, 61) as James Wykoff, a homesteader who finds himself living in the middle of hostile Indian territory.

· Olivier Martinez (Unfaithful, Before Night Falls) as President General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, the tyrant dictator of Mexico.

· Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill, Chosen) as Mirabeau Lamar, a spirited Texas soldier who helps win the battle of San Jacinto.

· Michael Rapaport (JUSTIFIED, THE HEAT ) as Sgt. Ephraim Knowles, a would-be deserter and coward turned hero.

· Max Thieriot (Bate Motel, Disconnect) as Jack Hays, a volunteer freedom fighter who becomes the youngest Texas Ranger.

The network will announce additional star casting in the upcoming weeks.

“From Hatfields & McCoys to The Bible to Vikings, HISTORY has made a major commitment to high-quality scripted historical dramas,” said Hoogstra, “The Texas Revolution is one of the most gut-wrenching and inspirational events in our history. Doing the story justice will be a massive undertaking and we’re excited to begin production with one of the best teams in the business.”

“It’s exciting to be back working with HISTORY and Bill Paxton, a team that made television history with Hatfields & McCoys,” said Greif. “The battle for Texas independence was epic and really the battle for the future of America. We have Academy Award- and Emmy-nominated talent, a stellar ensemble cast is being set, and with this team, we will seek to even further redefine and elevate the term ‘event television.’”

In 1836, if west of the Mississippi was considered the Wild West then Texas was hell on earth. Crushed from the outside by Mexican armadas and attacked from within by ferocious Comanche tribes – no one was safe. But this was a time of bravery, a time to die for what you believed in and a time to stand tall against the cruel rule of the Mexican General Santa Anna. From General Sam Houston, to rag tag Rangers to the legendary “Yellow Rose of Texas” — this is a story of the human spirit rising in the face of insurmountable odds and claiming a piece of history for all eternity.

TEXAS RISING is co-produced by A+E Studios and ITV Studios America, and produced by Thinkfactory Media for HISTORY. Leslie Greif serves as executive producer for Thinkfactory Media. Dirk Hoogstra, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Julian P. Hobbs serve as executives in charge of production for HISTORY.

However, during a recent chat with Collider at SXSW, Goldberg addressed many of the concerns by assuring fans that they plan to stay as true to the comic as they can. He also went on to say how very excited they are about the project and that it has been something that has been trying to see the light of day for over 10 years.

Preacher follows Reverend Jesse Custer, a tough Texas preacher who has lost his faith, has learned that God has left Heaven and abandoned His responsibilities. He finds himself the only person capable of tracking God down, demanding answers, and making Him answer for His dereliction of duty. Accompanying Jesse on his journey is his former girlfriend and a friendly vampire who seems to prefer a pint in the pub to the blood of the innocent. On his tail is one of the most iconic bad guys in print – an immortal, unstoppable killing machine named the Saint of Killers – a western lone gunman archetype whose sole purpose is to hunt and kill Jesse.”
