Keep your eyes on Tom Hardy. Before the Brit starred in films like "Inception" or this year's "Warrior," he scorched the small screen as thuggish Freddie Jackson in the 2009 British miniseries "The Take" ( 8 p.m. Friday, Encore; 3.5 stars ). His unblinking, brutish presence has turned a rather traditional and ultra-violent crime drama into something exceedingly watchable and suspenseful. Encore is presenting the miniseries as an original for the network, premiering each of the four parts at 8 p.m. Dec. 2, 9, 16 and 23. As the story opens, thuggish Freddie is picked up...

You just can't keep a good "Heroes" down. NBC plans on reviving the series in 2015 with a 13-episode miniseries event titled "Heroes: Reborn. " Hopefully the new mini will be the good "Heroes" fans watched during the 2006 inaugural season that introduced a group of people with super powers. Many fans and critics felt the show, which ran until 2010 on NBC, fizzled after that first season. Original creator Tim Kring will be back at the helm for the mini, which will feature a stand-alone story arc. NBC will introduce new storylines and characters to the mythology in a web series prior to...

In Sundance Channel's intriguing miniseries "Restless," Charlotte Rampling stars as a former British spy in World War II who has been living under an assumed name for 30 years. When Sally Gilmartin tells her daughter, Ruth (Michelle Dockery), about her past and that her real name is Eva Delectorskaya, it sets off doubts in Ruth's mind that she knows her mother at all. And, as you can see in this clip from Part 2 of the miniseries, Sally begins to run her daughter as if she were a spy in order to secure the safety of both women.

"The Bible" is getting a sequel. NBC will air a 12-hour miniseries called "A.D. " from "The Bible" creators Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. "A.D. " will most likely air in spring 2015, because unlike Earth, a miniseries can't be created in one day. But NBC wants to cash in on the success of "The Bible," which debuted March 3 on History Channel and averaged 13.2 million viewers when including live and DVR viewing within seven days of the premiere. It became the third most-watched cable TV series or miniseries in 2013, and had huge DVD sales.

To anyone who follows the yearly awards-show banter, it's no surprise that the Golden Globe TV nominations announced Thursday would leave many viewers scratching their heads. You never know what you'll get from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hands out the Golden Globes--except snubs and surprises. The group isn't really qualified to name the year's best in anything, except it's obvious bedazzlement by glitz, glamor and big-name celebrity. Anyway, on with the snubs list.

"Modern Family" creator Steven Levitan summed up the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards telecast when he accepted another outstanding comedy award for the show. "This may be the saddest Emmys of all time, but we could not be happier," he said.   The CBS telecast, hosted with gusto by Neil Patrick Harris, was smothered by five "in memoriam" tributes to individuals as well as a montage late in the telecast. It was, in a word, a bummer. Harris tried to bring up the energy with jokes and a mid-broadcast song-and-dance number called "The...

"American Horror Story" returns in October with a tweak to the title. It will be called "American Horror Story: Asylum," FX and producer Ryan Murphy announced Wednesday. That's a fitting title since the series will be set in an insane asylum run by Jessica Lange's character, who will not be creepy Constance Langdon, the woman she played to perfection in the show's first season. The new season is set in 1964 and stars Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Zachary Quinto, James Cromwell and Joseph Fiennes.
