  1. Not a lot to go on yet, but it may be notable for being co-created by Irvine Walsh and Bret Easton Ellis.
  2. New workplace comedy based on Donald Trump's announcement of a new Space Force. That's where we are now. Created by Steve Carell and Greg Daniels of The Office (US version) and starring Carell. It's about the people tasked with creating the Space Force after the announcement.
  3. http://variety.com/2017/film/global/rick-okon-lizzie-caplan-sky-das-boot-sequel-1202479418/ Sky Germany, Italy and UK are teaming up for a €25m 8-part series. Obviously not a direct sequel to the original, but continuing the war in 1942 with the young crew of another U-boat. Could be interesting, but I'm not sure it needs to be connected to Das Boot.
  4. It's coming back! In the form of a sequel. As you've probably guessed from the name, it's in LA this time, in 1938. Mexican-American folklore.
  5. Upgrade seems to have got good word of mouth on the forum. Now it's to get a TV follow-up from Leigh Whannell and Tim Walsh. Set a few years after the movie with an evolved STEM and a new host. https://deadline.com/2020/05/upgrade-tv-series-sequel-leigh-whannell-sci-fi-movie-blumhouse-ucp-writers-room-1202933886/
  6. He's bringing Wipe back for a special, with Philomena Cunk and Barry Shitpeas. https://deadline.com/2020/04/antiviral-wipe-charlie-brooker-revives-screen-wipe-bbc-1202913409/
  7. Think this was one of the better TV comedies to come out of the US last year, although it's not that well known. Premise is simple- Andy Daly plays a reviewer called Forrest MacNeil who reviews life experiences on his TV show. Anything from what it's like to steal something, to be addicted to something, to be a racist, to eat 50 pancakes in one sitting etc etc. It's pretty good, helped by Daly's excellent performance as the hapless MacNeil who more than occasionally displays some darkness bubbling under his cheery exterior, and supporting roles from people like Fred Willard. Worth checking out, picked up a lot of good reviews and has been renewed for a second season.
  8. http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2013/bbc-two-w1a.html
  9. Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan (who worked together for Glee and Scream Queens) have a new 7-part limited series on Netflix, coming 1 May. It's about actors and filmmakers doing what it takes to make it in post-war Hollywood.
  10. New 10 episode series from SyFy, based on some comic.
  11. https://deadline.com/2020/04/hellraiser-david-gordon-green-directing-hbo-series-halloween-pilot-1202918558/ HBO are to bring Hellraiser to TV. Pilot and several other episodes to be directed by David Gordon Green. It'll be written by Mark Verheiden and Michael Dougherty. Apparently not a remake, but built on the existing mythology.
  12. http://corporate.uktv.co.uk/news/article/celebrities-battle-it-out-dave-dara-o-briains-go-8-bit/ Starts Monday 5th September on Dave. so..? Usual Dave-level celebrities, playing videogames. Good or bad?
  13. My wife is Norwegian and I made a reference to the television show Time Team the other week. She had no idea what it was. Since she's a historian and was very impressed when my uncle (an archaeologist) showed us historical sites around Manchester city centre, I figured she might find it interesting. I took the time to dig up a torrent which had pretty much every episode in the show's 20 year history and downloaded the first few seasons. She just laughed at the show and found it boring. To be fair, it was the 90s and looking back on the way this is produced versus historical shows of today - there is quite a difference. In the first episode, one of the cast is walking along explaining the layout of the site and trips and falls down a rabbit hole. AND THEY KEEP IT IN THE SHOW. She just has to get up and carry on talking. Later, in the pub, the Time Team sit around talking over the top of each other whilst the camera focuses on one conversation of many noisy debates, whilst in the back, Baldrick steals some food from someone else's plate. To be honest, I loved it. I made my wife watch 3 episodes and then conceded to her opinion that it's a load of shit whilst secretly wanting to watch one more. Just wondering; do you have any fond memories or highlights on the show I should be cutting to? 20 years of television is a lot to watch and I could do with jumping to the best bits.
  14. 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.
  15. 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-rodriguez-cast-fox-the-goonies-re-enactment-drama-pilot-1202875896/
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Taika Waititi is bringing The Auteur to screen, starring Jude Law. The comic sounds fun.
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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 played along, but frequently couldn't stop himself from corpsing, which was hilarious. I kind of feel like I haven't sold it very well there - but it's only half an hour long, and I encourage you to watch it, even if you don't give a shit about Made in Chelsea or celebrities. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b05tr5f0/murder-in-successville-1-the-mob
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
