  1. 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.
  2. Do we really not have a topic for this show? I couldn't find anything using the forum search. For those who might know nothing about John Oliver or the show it can probably be summed up like this: John Oliver, a comedian who cut his teeth on 'The Daily Show with John Stewart', hosts a news based entertainment series on HBO. The first season had some amazing stuff going on, can't help thinking of those poor space geckos, and the new second season is going strong too. Last night's episode on the tobacco industry was great, really highlighted some stuff I didn't know about and 'Jeff' the mascot
  3. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/twilight-zone-reboot-jordan-peele-works-at-cbs-all-access-1050554 CBS announced a Twilight Zone reboot. Coming to CBS All Access, the streaming platform they show Star Trek Discovery on. Here's a bit you will "love". Writer and showrunner is Marco Ramirez, writer for Daredevil season 2, Defenders and Sons of Anarchy. I know how people really took to all that The Hand and Reaching Out.
  4. No, it's not a remake of The Goonies. It's a show about students remaking The Goonies. Which may actually be an interesting change from a remake. It's follows a woman who failed to make it in New York and returns to her hometown as a substitute teacher. She agrees to help some students with the ambitious task of a shot-for-shot remake of The Goonies. Over the course of the season, the town gets inspired, which I assume means they eventually pull together to make it a reality, even the grumpy old man in the weird house, or whatever. https://deadline.com/2020/03/ramon-rod
  5. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/nov/27/netflix-announces-plans-to-adapt-roald-dahl-stories Netflix got the rights to a bunch of Roald Dahl stories and are going to animate them. Included are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator The BFG The Twits Matilda George’s Marvellous Medicine Boy: Tales of Childhood Going Solo The Enormous Crocodile The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me Henry Sugar Billy and the Minpins The Magic Finger Esio Trot Dirty Be
  6. 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.
  7. I decided to give this a go tonight and have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it (despite not watching the original, 4-part, series last year, to which this is a sequel). If you're a fan of 24 and its ilk, then it's certainly worth a go. Whether it will maintain the pace over the ten weeks is unknown, but the opener didn't disappoint. Doubt it'll win any BAFTAs, but enjoyable shooty-bang-bang stuff nonetheless.
  8. The Safdies next one is a comedy TV show for Showtime, with Nathan Fielder of Nathan for You. It'll star Benny and Nathan. It's about an alleged curse hitting the relationship of the married stars of a HGTV show, Flipanthropy. Nathan is the husband of the couple and Benny the show's producer. It may or may not be loosely based on the breakdown of a real-life couple of a HGTV show Flip or Flop. Sounds a bit different from Good Time and Uncut Gems. It'll be interesting to see what comes out of it.
  9. Taika Waititi is bringing The Auteur to screen, starring Jude Law. The comic sounds fun.
  10. Apple are doing a deal with Amblin to bring back Spielberg’s Amazing Stories anthology series. NBCUniversal also involved to make it. (Paywalled) They're apparently looking to spend $5m+ per episode, for an initial 10 episode run. [edit] Non paywalled report
  11. http://deadline.com/2017/11/the-raid-gareth-evans-gangs-of-london-sky-hbo-1202213001/ Gareth Evans is doing a big budget gangland drama for Sky and Cinemax. Contemporary London is getting torn apart in a power struggle between international gangs after the leader of one is assassinated. Coming in 2019.
  12. 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.
  13. http://deadline.com/2017/11/amazon-the-lord-of-the-rings-tv-series-multi-season-commitment-1202207065/ Amazon have reached a deal with the Tolkien Estate, Harper Collins and New Line. It's for a series set prior to Fellowship of the Ring and an additional unspecified potential spin-off. Apparently it will not be limited to material from the books and can include new material featuring the characters. This actually comes from the Tolkien Estate approaching studios rather than studios seeking permission. They had also approached Netflix and HBO. It seems Amazo
  14. https://deadline.com/2019/10/superman-lois-tv-series-tyler-hoechlin-elizabeth-tulloch-star-development-the-cw-1202770637/ Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch are reprising their roles as Superman/Clark Kent and Lois Lane for their own show. It's getting a standalone pilot rather than a backdoor pilot in Supergirl. Probably no point going into what a Superman and Lois show would be about at this point, they are known well enough now.
  15. Since I imagine that many would have missed this, since it's on BBC3, I urge you all to watch Murder in Successville, as the first episode is one of the funniest things I've seen on TV in a while. It's basically like a noire-themed Stella Street where actors play anachronistic versions of real-life celebrities. But the twist is that every episode an actual celebrity (i.e. played by themselves) has to solve a murder. They have no idea what's going on, and the rest of the cast improv around them. The first episode had some guy from Made in Chelsea who I'd never heard of, but he was very game and

    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/
  17. FX and Alex Garland are making an 8 episode limited series. It's about a computer engineer who suspects her employer is responsible for her boyfriend's murder. The young engineer is Sonoya Mizuno, who Garland had in both his previous movies. Her employer, the boss of a big tech company, is Nick Offerman.
  18. 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.
  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. So this is what Dave Filoni is doing after Clone Wars and Rebels. It is set prior to The Force Awakens and will follow Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. Seemingly dropping the CG of the prior shows and going for an anime-inspired look. The article says it will feature BB-8, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron and Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma. But I wouldn't be surprised if it's guest appearances rather than regular. It's coming in autumn.
  21. https://deadline.com/2019/12/snow-crash-sci-fi-drama-series-hbo-max-michael-bacall-joe-cornish-paramount-tv-1202809103/ Snow Crash is being adapted for HBO Max. Joe Cornish directing. Written by Michael Bacall, of 21 Jump Street and Scott Pilgrim.
  22. 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!
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
