  1. 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 Amazon are paying $200 million for the rights. Just the rights. Actually making the thing will be an additional hefty cost.
  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 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.
  3. It's not got a name yet, but the prequel is getting a prequel. Diego Luna is returning to play his Rogue One character, Cassian Andor, in a show for Disney+, the streaming service. It's set to be a spy thriller during the formative years of the Rebellion.
  4. 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.
  5. It's Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, who some don't get on with, so I thought I'd mention that first. And don't ask me what's going on with that title. Coming to Netflix on 21 September. Evan Peters stars as Dahmer. Largely told from the victims perspective and goes into the police incompetence and apathy that allowed him to go on for so long. https://deadline.com/video/monster-trailer-evan-peters-jeffrey-dahmer-ryan-murphys-netflix-series/
  6. 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/
  7. https://deadline.com/2019/07/jeff-bridges-to-star-as-retired-cia-officer-in-fx-drama-the-old-man-from-black-sails-co-creators-jon-steinberg-robert-levine-1202653849/ Jeff Bridges will be a retired CIA officer in a new FX drama. It comes from Jon Steinberg and Robert Levine, co-creators of Black Sails. Bridges is Dan Chase, who left the CA decades ago and now lives off the grid. Then an assassin tries to take him out and, I dunno, he uses his particular set of skills or something. Hopefully it turns out well.
  8. Apple are doing a Time Bandits show. It's been known for a while that it's being worked on, but now it's officially greenlit. Taiki Waititi as executive producer and directing the first 2 (of 10) episodes. Lisa Kudrow as one of the stars. Other cast include Kal-El Tuck (Unseeing Evil), Charlyne Yi (Knocked Up), Tadhg Murphy (Conversations With Friends), Roger Jean Nsengiyumva (You Don’t Know Me), Rune Temte (Eddie the Eagle), Kiera Thompson (Martyrs Lane) and Rachel House (Heartbreak High). https://deadline.com/2022/09/time-bandits-lisa-kudrow-lead-cast-taika-waititi-apple-series-1235129518/
  9. They're giving a live-action Avatar another go, after that movie which doesn't exist. It's being run by the original animated show's creators/showrunners and will be on Netflix, in partnership with Nickelodeon. They specifically mention a culturally-appropriate, non-whitewashed cast and that Netflix are backing them in their vision to go even deeper into the characters, story, action, and world-building. Also this concept art
  10. 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.
  11. It’s finally happening. Starring Jodie Foster. https://deadline.com/2022/05/true-detective-jodie-foster-to-star-season-4hbo-1235033965/
  12. There's been a couple of attempts to bring it to TV before, but this time, with HBO behind it, it might actually happen. Written by William Bridges, who wrote a couple of Black Mirror episodes (USS Callister and Shut Up and Dance) and directed by Yann Demange ('71, Top Boy, Lovecraft Country). https://deadline.com/2022/09/scanners-hbo-series-1235123991/
  13. I'm feeling trepidation about how this could turn out. JMS is back with Warner Bros. TV to reboot the show for The CW.
  14. 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.
  15. Ridley Scott and Alcon are bringing Blade Runner to Amazon. Not really any details other than it being a sequel set in 2099, obviously. Maybe they'll do a reverse Recall and have this be like Total Recall, like how its TV show turned out to be Blade Runner.
  16. Based on a graphic novel of the same name. About a Chinese-American high schooler who ends up involved in a battle between mythological Chinese gods, particularly Sun Wukong, The Monkey King. Cast includes Michelle Yeoh, Daniel Wu, Poppy Liu and Chin Han. 8 episodes coming to Disney+ next year.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. They're doing a limited series of The Santa Clause on Disney+, with Tim Allen back. Scott Calvin is now almost 65 and realises he needs to find a new Santa, and he wants to give his own family a bit of normal life. Production starts in March, so presumably it'll be ready for this Christmas. https://deadline.com/2022/01/tim-allen-the-santa-clause-sequel-series-disney-plus-scott-calvin-jack-burditt-last-man-standing-1234912715/
  20. There was mention of this in the D+ thread a while back. AFAIK, it's not any kind of reboot or anything, but exists alongside the movies. Chance of Cage making a guest appearance? The main character is a 20 year old a Hispanic Latina-American played by Lisette Alexis. A DREAMer exploring mysterious family history. Now Catherine Zeta-Jones has signed on as another main character, a billionaire black-market antiquities expert and treasure hunter. https://deadline.com/2022/02/catherine-zeta-jones-star-national-treasure-disney-plus-series-1234927537/
  21. Pixar's first long-form TV show, for Disney+. Will Forte stars as Coach Dan, coach of a co-ed middle school softball team, in the week leading up to their championship game. https://deadline.com/2022/09/will-forte-win-or-lose-pixar-1235113669/
  22. A second animated anthology of shorts. This one is stories about Jedi of the prequel era. I guess we'll get more of that Fisto grin. It's coming in autumn.
  23. New show on Apple from 18 February. A stylised workplace thriller. The concept of the "severance" of the title is that people can have their personal and work memories completely divided and kept separate by a surgical procedure. Obviously, things are not quite right with all this. Stars Adam Scott, Patricia Arquette, John Turturro, Christopher Walken, Britt Lower, Zach Cherry, Dichen Lachman, Jen Tullock, Tramell Tillman and Michael Chernus. Directed by Ben Stiller.
  24. 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.
  25. https://www.thewrap.com/westworld-creators-jonathan-nolan-lisa-joy-the-peripheral-series-amazon/ Westworld's Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan are adapting the William Gibson book for Amazon.
