Drawn to it: Cartoon Network Games’ “Adventure Time Game Wizard” is coming to the App Store, Google Play and Amazon.
This title encourages players to draw their own “Adventure Time” game levels with a pencil and paper. The Pixel Press capture technology brings the game design to life on a mobile device, where it can be played, shared with friends and published online for fellow gamers to see.
The user-generated levels become part of a story where Finn and Jake happen upon a magical sketchbook (property of a brand-new character, the mysterious Doodle Wizard) and quickly discover that anything drawn in the book comes to life.
Adult spin: FX Networks has ordered the comedy pilot “Better Things,” created by and starring Pamela Adlon and directed by fellow “Louie” star Louis C.K.
If you think being a parent is hard, try raising three girls by yourself. In “Better Things,” Adlon plays a working actor trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two, and also — just maybe — squeeze in some sex once in a while. Her life is funny to watch, but you wouldn’t want to live it.
Another round: The original “Sharknado” survivors will return for the most epic shark attack yet. Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will reunite for the global pop culture sensation “Sharknado 3,” reprising their roles as Fin and April, respectively.
Anthony C. Ferrante will once again direct, based on an original screenplay by Thunder Levin.
Premiering on Syfy in July, “Sharknado 3” will cause mass destruction in the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., then roar down the Eastern Seaboard.
When it aired last July 30, “Sharknado 2: The Second One” became Syfy’s most-watched original movie ever with 3.9 million total viewers.
