  1. Dark was a big hit, so its creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar are back with Netflix with another show. It's set in 1899, around a group of migrants from around Europe and maybe further sailing to America. Their ship encounters another migrant ship adrift and...something mysterious they're not going into details on happens. It'll be multilingual with the multinational cast speaking their native tongues. It's filmed on a virtual "Volume" set, familiar to those in The Mandalorian thread. Friese and Odar actually had this built themselves, at Babelsberg studios in Germany, and set up their own company to operate it, on the back of this and Netflix committing to shooting more stuff on it. It's currently Europe's largest version of the tech.
  2. 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.
  3. https://deadline.com/2021/02/wednesday-addams-live-action-series-tim-burton-netflix-al-gough-miles-millar-to-showrun-1234695553/ Tim Burton to direct an 8-part live-action Wednesday Addams show for Netflix. Al Gough and Miles Millar as showrunners.
  4. https://deadline.com/video/tokyo-vice-hbo-max-trailer/ Loosely based on American journalist Jake Adelstein's book about his first hand account of being on the beat with the Tokyo Metropolitan Police. Set in the late 90s. Adelstein is played by Ansel Elgort. Ken Watanabe is a detective in the organized crime division and mentor to Adelstein. Also features Rachel Keller, Ella Rumpf, Rinko Kikuchi, Hideaki Ito, Show Kasamatsu, Tomohisa Yamashita, Shun Sugata, Masato Hagiwara, Ayumi Tanida, and Kosuke Toyohara. 3 episodes on 7 April, then 2 each Thursday until 28 April, with 3 again.
  5. 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/
  6. NWR has a 6-episode show coming to Netflix. Made back home in Denmark. It's a "neon-drenched noir", for a change. Production has already wrapped and it'll be out later this year. And it sounds like we can expect more from him and Netflix.
  7. 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.
  8. 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 free. No book chat. None. So no book chat. None. Even to discuss differences. This is purely to discuss what is on screen. The only time spoilers should be used in here is between Sunday night when the new episode is first shown in the US and 8pm Monday evening. If you are waiting for the Sky transmission and click a spoiler in here you just have yourself to blame. After 8pm on Mondays spoiler tags should not be needed in this thread. The reason I am being so fussy about spoilers is the books are out there containing spoilers for the next few series and the spoilers are so significant as anything can happen. After series one it is clear anyone can die etc.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. Netflix are to release this on 1 January. It's 8 episodes and the non-linear aspect is that it doesn't matter what order you watch them in and different people will be served different orders. Might be interesting to see how that works in reality. The idea came from when $70bn of bonds went missing during Hurricane Sandy. The creator thought "What if it was actually a heist using the storm for cover". Stars Giancarlo Esposito, Rufus Sewell, Paz Vega, Tati Gabrielle, Peter Mark Kendall, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney, Niousha Noor, Jordan Mendoza, Soojeong Son and Hemky Madera.
  12. 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.
  13. https://deadline.com/2019/04/phil-lord-chris-miller-mega-deal-sony-pictures-tv-spider-man-universe-tv-series-1202603847/ Lord and Miller have done a deal with Sony Television to develop Spider-Man Universe TV shows (ie. the bits of the Marvel universe Sony have access to through the Spider-Man rights). Live action and animated. Other non-Marvel stuff too.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. http://www.indiewire.com/2017/06/john-wick-tv-show-keanu-reeves-prequel-the-continental-hotel-1201841666/ Lionsgate is making a TV show centred on The Continental from John Wick. People did say they would like to see more of The Continental's world, so it's happening. The movie's director and franchise mastermind, Chad Stahelski, is behind the show too. It'll be focused on other clients passing through the worldwide hotel network rather than Wick, but Stahelski reckons Wick will make an appearance, though that's not official.
  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. A new show from Steve Levitan (Modern Family) coming to Hulu (so probably Disney+ here) about a sitcom from the 2000s being rebooted. Paul Reiser as the original show's creator, but he's old-school and not up to speed on things like diversity and inclusivity for the reboot. Also stars Keegan-Michael Key, Johnny Knoxville, Judy Greer, Rachel Bloom, Calum Worthy and Krista Marie Yu. Starts on Hulu on 20 September. https://deadline.com/2022/08/reboot-hulu-drops-trailer-for-steve-levitans-show-within-a-show-1235098460/
  22. 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.
  23. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-news/wonder-man-marvel-disney-1235166956/ Wonder Man getting a TV show. Shang-Chi's Destin Daniel Cretton is involved and probably directing at least 1 episode. Head writer is Andrew Guest, from Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Community and he consulted on Hawkeye.
  24. 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.
