‘Drive’ makes primetime Emmy history

Not Amy related but if Drive wins an Emmy, perhaps the episodes will be released on DVD. Just pure speculation on my part.

Fox’s quickly canceled drama “Drive” has inadvertently made TV academy history on Thursday, becoming the first-ever Primetime Emmy broadband nominee.

Twenty years from now, when Emmy only recognizes programming found on the Internet, historians will point to the mostly forgotten “Drive” as the show that started it all.

Only 50 seconds of the three-minute “Drive” clip nommed Thursday actually aired on TV. Instead, the special effect, titled “The Starting Line,” was streamed on Fox.com — and only ever seen on Fox.com.

The clip – which took a year and a half for special effects shop Zoic Studio to produce – opened up “Drive” by introducing characters as a camera slid from car to car racing down a busy freeway. “The Starting Line” scored a nomination under new rules enacted this year by the org.

New layout & revamp in progress

Welcome to the full version of Amy Acker Fan! As you can see, I’ve switched news scripts — to the nifty WordPress — and we have a brand new layout which was designed by the lovely Mycah.

Each section of the site is now online, except for the ‘Press Archives’, but I shall be working on that in the next week or so. I’ll also be expanding on the pages already online — I want to add the content a bit at a time, to give you, the fans, something new to read each time you visit.

Anyway, enjoy your stay here, and I’ll be sure to let you all know when the revamp is complete! Don’t hesistate to leave a comment about the layout on your way out.

Drive; Final Episodes

I’m unsure if Amy will be guest-starring in these episodes but for those of you that have been following the show, the official website states that the final two episodes will be aired back-to-back on July 13th, 8/7c.

EDIT: According to The Futon Critic, Amy only guest-starred in the following episodes: 1×02 – Partners and 1×04 – No Turning Back; both of which you can view at FOX On Demand although, unfortunately, it isn’t available to people outside of the States.

Drive; Final Episodes Update

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but for those of you that have been following the now cancelled series, Drive, FOX has decided not to air the final episodes after all. This has been confirmed by Futon Critic (opens in a new window) which states that season 1 consists of 6 episodes, 2 of which never aired.

I shall try to get hold of the episodes Amy did star in (1×02 and 1×04) so I can add screencaps to the gallery.

New Television Movie Role!

COHEN CHATTER: Incendo Media, the Montreal-based film production and distribution company owned by Stephen Greenberg and Jean Bureau, continues to shoot television movies at a steady pace. Filming just concluded on Secret Past, starring former ER cast member Kellie Martin. They are presently shooting Voices, starring Amy Acker, who appeared on ABC’s Alias. Cameras have been spotted in Old Montreal, N.D.G., Hampstead and near the Lachine Canal. In July, they will begin production on Mistaken, with hot shot director Richard Roy. Incendo is also distributing the release of A Mighty Heart, a memoir of the life of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped and murdered in 2002 in Pakistan.

Canceled: Drive

If you follow the ratings, surely you’ve noticed that despite Fox’s huge promotional push for Drive, people just weren’t tuning in to the fast-paced drama. While it was up against ABC’s powerhouse Dancing with the Stars, the series didn’t pull in the same ratings as its previous occupant Prison Break. The cancellation is effective immediately and there is no word as to whether Fox plans to air the remaining episodes on the tube or the internet in the near future.
