  1. Another revival! Ralph Macchio and William Zabka have bills to pay are back as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence. After competition from mainly streaming services, it's going to YouTube Red, the YouTube subscription service. Down-and-out Johnny reopens the Cobra Kai dojo and reignited his rivalry with a successful Daniel, who has struggles of his own. It's going to be a 10 episode half hour comedy series. Yes, comedy. Karate too of course. It's being written by the minds behind Hot Tub Time Machine and Harold and Kumar.
  2. BBC Studios are developing a 6-part series based on the Discworld books. From the name, I assume it's mainly based on the City Watch characters. They're not looking to restrict it to 6 episodes, but one which can have more series to follow. It's being produced with Pratchett's production company Narrativia and apparently looking for other partners to make it a major international co-production.
  3. 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
  4. CBS are having another go at The Stand. And it will have a new ending, written by King. Not a changed ending, but a substantial portion of the final episode (of 9) is going beyond the ending of the book. James Marsden as Stu Redman Whoopie Goldberg as Mother Abigail Amber Heard as Nadine Cross Greg Kinnear as Glen Bateman Odessa Young as Frannie Goldsmith Henry Zaga as Nick Andros Marilyn Manson will also be appearing in some unknown role as well as doing a cover of The End (The Doors) with Shooter Jennings for the show
  5. There were some doubts it would happen, but it now looks like it is. Though at the TCA press tour, they said it won't be until 2019. No story details yet, but Hawley is working on it. [edit] Trailer added
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I've seen a few trails for this and it seems to be getting decent word of mouth, so could be worth a watch.

    Clarice

    With Silence of the Lambs spin-off series Hannibal wrongly cancelled, someone* decided to do Silence of the Lambs spin-off series Clarice, for CBS, based on Clarice Starling pursuing serial killers and sexual predators. Set in 1993, a year after Silence of the Lambs. *Alex Kurtzman https://deadline.com/2020/01/clarice-silence-of-the-lambs-sequel-tv-series-cbs-alex-kurtzman-jenny-lumet-big-commitment-1202828050/
  11. 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
  12. CBS want to bring back The Equalizer on TV. With the seemingly unlikely lead of Queen Latifah.
  13. An unusual premise this, and based on the first episode it will be well worth a download every week. Michael C Hall (Six Feet Under's David) plays Dexter, who is a serial killer. He's also a CSI-type cop. The dark comedy style is similar to SFU, and whilst it will never hit the heights of that show, it will be an entertaining and interesting 45 minutes every week. It is also on Showtime which means they won't hold back on the gore. If it wasn't for Heroes, this would be my highlight of the brand new shows so far this season. First episode of eleven was on Sunday and is Out There now.
  14. http://deadline.com/2018/05/lovecraft-country-jonathan-majors-hbo-series-jordan-peele-jj-abrams-misha-green-1202381033/ Thought this sounds like it could be interesting. Based on a 2016 book of the same name. Anyone read it? Jonathan Majors and Jurnee Smollett-Bell play the leads in Jim Crow 1950s America. They, and another character, go on a road trip to find Majors character's missing father. They encounter horrors of both the racist and Lovecraft kind.
  15. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-34711492 Hopefully this will fare better than the movie adaptations.
  16. Just watched this on BBC1. Really enjoyed it, with a bunch of genuine LOLs. I'm a sucker for slapstick so this was right up my street.
  17. https://deadline.com/2020/09/peacemaker-james-gunn-john-cena-dc-hbo-max-tv-1234582582/ Peacemaker, as played by John Cena in The Suicide Squad, is coming to HBO Max. The whole 8-episode first season will be written by James Gunn and several episodes directed by him.
  18. https://deadline.com/video/shadow-and-bone-trailer-when-netflix-april-2021/ I don't know what Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse novels are, but this is based on those. Apart from Ben Barnes, the named cast seem to be relative newcomers. A teaser that doesn't show much of anything.
  19. 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.
  20. It was mentioned in the movie thread a while ago, but there's some more concrete plans coming together for the TV version now. Clement and Waititi are both involved, with Clement writing and Waititi directing. Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen have been cast. Just a pilot order for now.
  21. Another GoT prequel is close to getting a pilot. This one is set 300 years before the show, about House Targaryen. Based on the Fire and Blood books. https://deadline.com/2019/09/house-targaryen-prequel-game-of-thrones-series-ryan-condal-george-rr-martin-hbo-1202732221/
  22. With Gotham ending, Bruno Heller is doing another pre-Batman show, with Danny Cannon. Pennyworth is, of course, about Alfred. He's a former SAS soldier who forms a security company and goes to work for Thomas Wayne. Set in 60s London. Premium cable network Epix has ordered a 10-episode season.
  23. Alice versus zombie Xenomorphs! Alan Tudyk will star in a SyFy adaptation of the Dark Horse comic. He is Harry, a crash-landed alien who takes on the identity of a small town doctor. Described as a dark, twisted and comedic fish-out-of-water story. Apparently the comic has him solving mysteries and murders.
  24. https://deadline.com/2020/12/alien-series-in-the-works-at-fx-with-fargo-creator-noah-hawley-ridley-scott-in-advance-talks-to-ep-1234654111/ Alien? On my TV? Coming from Noah Hawley, of Fargo and Legion. Will be set on Earth.
  25. 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.
