My new book, "The Revolution Was Televised," is now available in print as well as for several eReaders.

'The Revolution Was Televised' is on sale now!

A look back at TV dramas from 'Sopranos' through 'Breaking Bad' is now out in paperback

Last week, I told you all about my new book, "The Revolution Was Televised: The Cops, Crooks, Slingers and Slayers Who Changed TV Drama Forever," and said that it would go on sale around the week of Thanksgiving. As it turns out, the Kindle and Nook editions of the book were released much earlier than expected, while the paperback has come out slightly ahead of schedule today. (Other digital editions, for the iBookstore, Sony Reader, Kobo, etc., should be coming at some point in the next few weeks. The distributor I use for those sites works on a different schedule from everyone else. But if you want to read it on an iPad or iPhone, the Kindle app is really good, and is what I use for eBooks.)

Cinemax moves forward on 'Hunted' without the BBC

Spy thriller will be rebooted to continue Melissa George's story without some others

Both HBO and Cinemax have benefited from trans-Atlantic partnerships the last few years, resulting in shows like "Extras," "Strike Back" and most recently "Hunted," the Cinemax thriller starring Melissa George as Sam Hunter, a British private spy looking for revenge on the people who tried to kill her. These partnerships have given the larger HBO family access to series and talent who might not have been available without taking on a partner in the U.K., and at a cheaper price than if they were producing it on their own.

But some partnerships don't always go smoothly, as Cinemax has found out with "Hunted." The series still has a few weeks to go in its U.S. run (original episodes air Fridays at 10), but BBC One has already announced that they won't renew the show for a second season, despite Cinemax's interest in continuing the show.
