TV Buzz: Go Behind the Scenes of ‘Outlander,’ Rock Out With ‘Witches of East End’ Music Video and More

We have dancing witches, werewolves ripping and time traveling, oh my! It is a regular supernatural circus in this Tuesday’s TV Buzz. Never fear though, we have not left reality behind us entirely in between all of the fantasy fun times we have trailers for USA’s marriage drama Satisfaction, WGN America’s Manhattan and an all new comedy from Starz.

Head Behind the Scenes of Starz’s ‘Outlander’

Ronald D. Moore is not planning on destroying the Outlander books. It’s a promise he makes to fans in the new behind the scenes look at the highly anticipated Starz series based on Diana Gabaldon’s novels. The featurette gives us our best look yet at the lush sets and landscapes that will bring this tale to life, while also discussing Claire and her journey to 17th century Scotland. Are you pleased with what you have seen so far?

Outlander premieres August 9th at 9PM ET/PT on Starz.

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Season 5 Poster is Begging to be Unmasked

Pretty Little Liars fifth season is set to premiere tonight, Tuesday, June 10th at 8pm ET/PT on ABC Family. Before you dive into the sure to be thrilling premiere take a look at the not-so-revealing key art. Everyone’s motives are always in question on PLL, so the mask motif makes sense. However, the most attention grabbing part of the poster is the cracked mask. Does it represent A and a crumbling facade?

‘Hemlock Grove’ Full Length Season 2 Trailer Arrives

“Even demons have demons.”

Netflix is not kidding around in the new Hemlock Grove season two trailer. If any of the following freaks you out, you have been warned: this trailer contains slug eating, people eating, hardcore werewolf transformations, human experimentation and a hand reaching out of a wolf’s mouth.

USA Asks “Are You Satisfied?” in ‘Satisfaction’ Teaser

What does it mean to be satisfied in the modern marriage? USA is going to explore that question and more in their upcoming drama Satisfaction. Couple Neil (Matt Passmore) and Grace Truman (Stephanie Szostak) seem to have it all on the surface, but their lack of communication will send their marriage into a tailspin of infidelity.

Satisfaction premieres Thursday, July 17th at 10/9c on USA.

‘The Leftovers’ Captivates in New Trailer

HBO has increasingly upped their game as The Leftovers‘ trailers roll out. What started out as a hokey looking Left Behind style drama now appears to be a much deeper examination of religion, human nature and the danger of living in a world where everyone is afraid. The latest trailer displays the grief, but also the madness gripping the world after the supposed Rapture. Are those left behind lesser? Does holding onto religious ideals make sense? Could there be another explanation for the mass disappearance? The answers to those questions are starting to seem more and more interesting the more I see of the series.

The Leftovers premieres Sunday, June 29th at 10PM/9C on HBO.

Starz Teases Basketball Comedy ‘Survivor’s Remorse’

For anyone who has ever wondered about the lives of basketball stars, Survivor’s Remorse might be the comedy for you. The teaser for Starz’s upcoming comedy from LeBron James is so nondescript you would be forgiven for thinking it was a documentary on the rise and downfall of basketball players, but it is in fact a comedy set to roll out in Fall 2014. Did the stats filled teaser catch your attention?

WGN America Kicks Off ‘Manhattan’

WGNAmerica is taking viewers inside the world of the scientists who worked on Manhattan in an intense new series starring Olivia Williams and John Benjamin Hickey. The full length trailer reveals a period drama fans of shows like Mad Men and Masters of Sex should be able to fall for. There is marriage drama, the suggestion of spies and all manner of trouble for the people living on the government compound– it’s a drama lover’s dream come true.

‘Witches of East End’ Season 2 Gets Remixed Music Video Treatment

Let’s end this TV Buzz on a cool note, shall we? Witches of East End‘s second season is almost upon us and Lifetime did something a little different to celebrate: they released a remixed music video featuring amazing teasers from the series set to “Blackout Days” by Phantogram. The effect is awesome, stylish and enough to make even those of us who missed season one–myself included–wanted to see what all the fuss is about.

Witches of East End season two premieres July 6th at 9/8c on Lifetime.
