    Stargirl

    Another show joining the DC Universe shows. Not sure it'll be connected to Titans or Doom Patrol. This one involves the Justice Society of America. Brec Bassinger is in the title role and her alter-ego Courtney Whitmore. Also Luke Wilson as Pat Dugan, pilot of Stripe, a 15-foot robot he invented. Lou Ferrigno Jr. as Rex Tyler/Hourman, Brian Stapf as Ted Grant/Wildcat, Henry Thomas as Charles McNider/Dr Mid-Nite. Amy Smart also playing Barbara Whitmore, Courtney's mother and Pat Dugan's new wife. Also Joy Osmanski, Neil Hopkins and Nelson Lee as Tigress, Sportsmaster and Dragon King, members of The Injustice Society. The show is being run by Geoff Johns. Won't be coming until early next year. Official synopsis First official pic unveiled at Wondercon yesterday
  2. It's HBO, so there's reason for hope, right? It's only early in talks, but Damon Lindelof, fresh off The Leftovers, is currently attached too.
  3. The Illuminatus! Trilogy, the books from the 70s, are to be brought to TV. It'll be made by Hivemind, who are behind the excellent The Expanse and the hopefully good The Witcher. Interestingly, they are also partnering with Brian Taylor, of Crank and Happy!
  4. By Sam Esmail IMDB ABOUT CAST Christian Slater as Mr. Robot Rami Malek as Elliot Carly Chaikin as Marlene Frankie Shaw as Shayla Gloria Rueben as Krista Martin Wallström as Tyrell USA RENEWS MR. ROBOT FOR SEASON TWO You should watch this. It is good.
  5. I'd been seeing stories for a while about a new DC Universe Harley Quinn cartoon but didn't pay much attention. I just knew Penny off Big Bang Theory was playing the main role. Happened upon a trailer this morning and it's not what I expected, being full of swearing and violence. They've assembled a pretty impressive cast too Kaley Cuoco as Harley Alan Tudyk as Joker and Clayface Diedrich Bader as Batman Jason Alexander as Cy Borgman Christopher Meloni as James Gordon Tony Hale as Doctor Psycho and Felix Faust Giancarlo Esposito as Lex Luthor Wanda Sykes as Queen of Fables J. B. Smoove as Frank the Plant James Adomian as Bane James Wolk as Superman And a bunch more, I think some from other cartoons too

    Avenue 5

    Armando Iannucci is back with HBO for Avenue 5. It's a comedy set in the future, mostly in space, on a spaceship named Avenue 5. Hugh Laurie will be playing the American captain Ryan Clark.
  7. 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 the TV the entire 45 minutes, so on that count I think it worked as family entertainment - after all, if the programme only tried to appeal to the (now grown up) people who watched the old series it would probably fail terribly - the producers have to attract a new audience as well as catering for the original fans if it's to succeed. Seems to have trounced Ant 'n' Dec in the ratings though and almost all the word of mouth I've seen has been positive (apart from the balls-up that allowed Graham Norton's voice to intrude - I thought the baddies were Autons, not Nortons...). Have to see how it holds up over the coming weeks. What'd everyone else think?
  8. 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.
  9. https://deadline.com/2015/11/lost-in-space-tv-series-remake-netflix-1201587644/ Legendary TV is remaking Lost in Space, with Netflix winning a bidding war. Neil Marshall is involved and expected to direct. Not sure about the writers though. They did Dracula Untold, The Last Witch Hunter and the weird looking upcoming Gods of Egypt. Didn't bother watching the first two as they seems to be bad. If Rottentomatoes are to be trusted, they turned out awful.
  10. Another version of the story, this time starring David Tennant as Phileas Fogg. It's being made by a group of European broadcasters and looks like it will have a multinational cast. It's due to air towards the end of 2020 and will be on BBC in the UK.
  11. I know I'm posting two threads at the same time, because there's two versions coming. This one, from BBC, stars Rafe Spall, Eleanor Tomlinson, Robert Carlyle and Rupert Graves. It's set in Edwardian England, for a change from other screen adaptations. Director Craig Viveiros says he's trying to capture a feeling that isn't cosy or predictable. It's already in production.
  12. 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.
  13. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-34711492 Hopefully this will fare better than the movie adaptations.
  14. https://deadline.com/video/godfather-of-harlem-trailer-extended-look-epix-series-forest-whitaker/ Forest Whitaker plays Bumpy Johnson in 60s Harlem. Just out of prison, he finds the area now controlled by the Genovese crime family. Malcolm X apparently plays a big part and Muhammad Ali, then Cassius Clay, appears in the trailer, in a fight, but I don't know how much he's part of it. As well as Whitaker, it's got Vincent D’Onofrio, lfenesh Hadera, Nigél Thatch, Paul Sorvino, Chazz Palminteri, Giancarlo Esposito, Lucy Fry, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Antoinette Crowe-Legacy. Starts on 29 September in the US, for 10 episodes.
  15. 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.
  16. Despite the bad sequel, they're bringing Sin City to TV. Can't help but wonder if people really want more than the original movie, as a one-off oddball experiment. Although I'll probably watch it anyway if it's not a total disaster. The deal also includes a hard-R rated animated prequel.
  17. I know there are at least a few posters on here who have read Patrick Rothfuss's Kingkiller Chronicles "trilogy". It was announced quite a while back that his works would be adapted for TV and into movies, possibly other media (games, stage etc). Now it's been announced that Lin-Manuel Miranda will take up the mantle of creative producer on the movie and tv adaptations, with the option to create a stage adaptation as well some time in the future. I'm quite excited for this although I think I'll have to reread the books, I realized the other day that I've forgotten a lot of what happens.
  18. 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.
  19. John Krasinski will be the fifth Jack Ryan in a new TV show coming to Amazon. It's not been greenlit for a full series yet, but is expected to be. Carlton Cuse will run the show and Michael Bay will be a producer. They say it's not a direct adaptation of books, but a contemporary take on Ryan's days in the CIA with some book stuff used as source material.
  20. I know I'm posting two threads at the same time, because there's two versions coming. This one is from the Europe and Africa division of Fox TV and Canal+. It's eight parts and set in the present day. It's created and written by Misfits Howard Overman, who intends to explore themes of racial superiority and ethnic conflict.
  21. https://deadline.com/2019/11/chinatown-prequel-series-pilot-robert-towne-david-fincher-netflix-1202789041/ Netflix have got David Fincher and Robert Towne (original movie writer) together for a prequel series to the movie. It'll focus on a younger Jake.
  22. 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 uninspiring efforts in that area and without the introductory offer it's actually more expensive than Netflix (only by about £7 but still). The main argument for that price is the Amazon Prime delivery which i wouldn't particularly want. Still, more competition is good for us customers, not sure I'd want to be subscribed to two streaming services, but if they significantly improve their library I might take a look eventually.
  23. Third season of American Crime Story is about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. Lewinsky herself is involved as a producer. They're getting the cast together. It'll be based on the book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President. Starts shooting in March and is currently aiming for 27 September airing. Clive Owen as Bill Clinton Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones Hillary Clinton hasn't been cast yet

  25. Netflix, David Fincher and Charlize Theron are doing a show based on the true crime book Mind Hunter: Inside FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit. Stars Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Anna Torv and Hannah Gross. Set in 1979, FBI agents interview serial killers to help solve current murders. Their boss (I'm assuming it is) doesn't seem too pleased with that plan, from the teaser. Coming in October. http://deadline.com/2017/03/mindhunter-trailer-netflix-david-fincher-charlize-theron-series-holt-mccallanay-video-1202032899/
