‘Black Narcissus’ Featurette Dives into the Making of FX’s Limited Series Starring Gemma Arterton

The first trailer for Black Narcissus released back in September didn’t do much to convince us that the three-part limited series adaptation of the best-selling novel by Rumer Godden would be worth watching this winter instead of just revisiting 1947 movie from Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. But now a new “first look” featurette dives a little more into the story and reveals some details about the making of the project starring Gemma Arterton.

Legendary commentator, Sir Peter O’Sullevan would be one. Younger fans may look to Richard Hoiles or Simon Holt. Yet, the person who would be mentioned more often than most is Cornelius Lysaght. For 30 years, Lysaght was the voice of racing for the BBC. As the figurehead of 5 Live’s horse racing coverage, Lysaght...

‘His Dark Materials’ Enters a Brave New World With “The City of Magpies”

His Dark Materials is going through some growing pains. The first season couldn’t quite meet its own Game of Thrones-sized ambitions, which hobbled the show before it could really find its footing. Was it a dark, serious epic fantasy? Or the whimsical YA adventure that Philip Pullman‘s novels first presented as? His Dark Materials ended up falling somewhere in the middle, and while the first season was a far more respectful adaptation than the disastrous 2007 film The Golden Compass, it was a t...
