  1. This sounds like an ambitious plan. HBO with Tom Hanks' Playtone making this Gaiman book. I don't know the book, so can't say what it would be like on screen. But right off the bat they're saying it will be 6 seasons. From one book. 10 - 12 one hour long episodes per seasons with a budget of $35-40 million per season.
  2. http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tech/news/a552739/lovefilm-instant-to-become-amazon-prime-instant-video.html I used to be with Lovefilm, but left when they stopped renting games. At the time their streaming video service was nice as an added bonus on the subscription, but not something I'd have paid for on its own due to a poor library and apps only available on a very limted number of devices with rubbish update support. Not sure if this will tempt me away from Netflix, their original programming (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Arrested Development) blow away Amazon's rather
  3. Based on Mark Millar graphic novels. Coming to Netflix on 7 May. https://deadline.com/video/jupiters-legacy-trailer-netflix-superhero-drama-josh-duhamel/ I suppose it's a bit different than most in that it's not introducing the world to superbiengs, but they've been around for nearly a century and the world is used to them. But now it's time for the next generation to take over.
  4. A pilot for this was mentioned in the movie thread over a year ago, but now TNT have picked it up as a series. Stars Jennifer Connelly and a bunch of others.
  5. Probably past time this got its own thread. They've just announced it begins on 11 June. I'll just stick this in here too just to have something, even if it's not new.
  6. On 6 May (and 7 May on Sky), HBO and Sky start a new drama of the Chernobyl disaster. Not sure how many episodes (edit- 5 parts), but it's billed as a miniseries. Stars Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgard and Emily Watson, playing a Kremlin scientist, government official and nuclear physicist respectively. Looks like a few other familiar British and Irish faces in the trailer too.
  7. Star Trek adult animation. From Rick and Morty head writer Mike McMahan. It'll focus on the support crew on one of Starfleet's least important ships. McMahan is also the guy behind that twitter account which posted fake episode plots for an eighth TNG season.
  8. Yet another Holmes inspired thing. This time the Baker Street Irregulars. Apparently in this version, The Irregulars are the real brains, with Holmes taking credit for their work.
  9. First two episodes are out there. Have been for a couple of days, so there doesn't seem to have been much buzz around it. I've not watched them myself yet, but a friend, who hated the movie, says these two episodes are decent enough.
  10. Dave Filoni is back to animation again with The Bad Batch. The Bad Batch being a group of Clone Troopers first introduced in The Clone Wars. Though this is set just after the war as they take on mercenary jobs and try to find their purpose.
  11. http://www.slashfilm.com/the-terror-tv-series/ Excerpt from the article: I've not read the novel (although it's one I keep meaning to), so it's curious as to how this will be anthologised. The only way I can imagine it is that it works as some sorth of True Detective-type thing, with a different story each season tied by a common theme. We'll have to wait and see I suppose.
  12. https://deadline.com/2018/08/solar-opposites-alien-animated-comedy-rick-and-morty-duo-20th-tv-hulu-series-order-justin-roliand-mike-mcmahan-1202453250/ Hulu have given a 16 episode (across 2 seasons) order for a new adult animation from Rick and Morty's Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan. Due to start in 2020. It's about a family of aliens from a better world who are taking refuge in middle America. They disagree if it is awful or awesome. Roiland is also voicing a couple of the main characters.
  13. First, I'll get this out of the way. Alex Kurtzman is co-writing, co-showrunning and directing multiple episodes. If you've not run away, it'll be a series on Showtime. Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor as the alien, Jimmi Simpson as a CIA agent whose obsession with the alien drives him to the edge of insanity, and Naomie Harris as a scientist and engineer who finds herself racing to save two worlds.
  14. https://deadline.com/2018/07/the-nevers-joss-whedon-hbo-series-order-1202426230/ HBO have picked up a new Joss Whedon show, ordered straight to series. He'll be writer, director, executive producer and showrunner. It's a Victorian science-fiction show about a group of women "with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that might change the world."
  15. Batwoman is coming to the "Arrowverse". It's not certain of being its own show yet, but they are casting the character for a crossover event in December with a view to spinning her out to her own show. It's being developed by Greg Berlanti, of all the other shows, and Caroline Dries, of The Vampire Diaries.
  16. Due to more arguments in the big GoT thread about what should and shouldn't be in that thread and whether it was working or not I have decided to start this. Sorry for diluting the chat and making another GoT thread. Here is my post from the other thread which a few people seemed to agree with and forms the basis for this thread. I don't care if something is exactly the same as the book, completely different or whatever. If this isn't how you would like to discuss the show please open a "Game of Thrones-Books read up to current episode" thread. Please leave this thread totally book fr
  17. Another DC show coming soon. Derek Mears, who seems to play a lot of large men and monsters, is in the suit. Crystal Reed is the female lead, Abby Arcane, who is investigating the swamp. Jeryl Prescott as Madame Xanadu, your typical blind fortune teller with supernatural perceptions of the future. Ian Ziering is Hollywood has-been Daniel Cassidy, aka Blue Devil. Kevin Durand is Jason Woodrue, a brilliant, but villainous, scientist researching the swamp. It begins on 31 May.
  18. Personally enjoyed it. The bin burp and the severed arm wrestling were a bit shit, but otherwise it worked well as an introduction to the characters. Some people have criticized the somewhat hectic pace of the story but I personally feel that the whole intent was to introduce Rose and the Doctor and having her get caught up in the action right from the beginning allowed this to happen with plenty of pace. I don't think that a detailed story PLUS the introduction of the characters would've worked if they'd tried to squeeze it all into the first 45 minute episode. My 10 yr old son sat glued to
  19. https://deadline.com/2021/03/natasha-lyonne-rian-johnsonpoker-face-peacock-mrc-television-1234715689/ Rian Johnson is creator, writer and director of Poker Face, starring Natasha Lyonne. Not many details yet, but it will apparently be a different case each week, for 10 episodes.
  20. https://deadline.com/2021/03/elmore-leonard-city-primeval-fx-justified-followup-timothy-olyphant-raylan-givens-1234716630/ The team behind Justified are bringing another Elmore Leonard work to TV. The original book does not feature Raylan Givens, but they are going to adapt it to include him, with Timothy Olyphant open to returning as the character.
  21. New show from Michael Schur, starring Ed Helms and Jana Schmieding. It'll be on Peacock (NBC's streamer) from 22 April. Don't know about UK.
  22. Noah Hawley, behind the excellent Fargo, is bringing this to TV. Apparently it's being kept separate from the X-Men movies. Stars Dan Stevens as David Haller, who hears voices in his head and resides in a psychiatric hospital. But he may actually be a powerful mutant (which I assume means he really is). Begins in the US on 8 February. No UK news yet.
  23. Amazon come along with another hero show, based on a Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson comic. The show is developed by Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen. Stars Karl Urban, Elizabeth Shue, Antony Starr and a bunch more.
  24. Greg Berlanti and DC Universe (DC's upcoming streaming service) are making a live action Doom Patrol series. It's ordered direct-to-series, with 13 episodes. Apparently it also gives Berlanti a new record of 14 shows airing.
  25. Fox and Greg Berlanti are making a sequel to the David Carridine Kung Fu. Not directly after the original, which was in the 1880s. This will be 1950s. This time with a female lead, searching for the man who stole her child. She'll also be teaming up with a Korean War veteran.
