‘Stay Tuned’ TV Series in the Works; Will Adapt the Film About a Couple Who Gets Sucked Into Their TV

Stay Tuned, a 1992 movie in which John Ritter and Pam Dawber play a husband and wife who get sucked into their television and inhabit different worlds as they bounce through the TV’s hellish programming, is being adapted into a TV show. Just two months ago, I wrote a piece proclaiming that this goofy little quasi-forgotten movie was an ideal candidate for a modern remake. Am I to believe it’s a coincidence that a new version is now in the works? Or do the people behind this Stay Tuned TV series...

‘Friends’ Reunion Special Stuck in Second Gear, is Delayed Again By HBO Max

‘Lovecraft Country’ Review: Horrors Both Human and Otherworldly Haunt Misha Green’s Spellbinding Series

“This is the story of a boy and his dream,” a narrator tells us. “But more than that, it is the story of an American boy and a dream that is truly American.” That narrator is from the 1950 film The Jackie Robinson Story, but he’s also, in effect, narrating Lovecraft Country, Misha Green‘s phenomenal horror series. Rather than just use musical needle drops, Lovecraft Country uses narration pulled from other sources, audio clips, spoken-word poetry, creating a rich tapestry; a collage; a mosaic. ...

The show, based on the true story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League and the 1992 Penny Marshall film starring Gena Davis and Tom Hanks, comes from creators Abbi Jacobson and Will Graham, with Jacobson set to star in the show as well.

‘Hoops’ Trailer: It Takes Balls to Coach a High School Basketball Team

Netflix’s roster of adult-oriented animated programming is top notch, and they’re really starting to give Adult Swim and Comedy Central a run for their money. Their latest effort is Hoops, a new show created by comedian Ben Hoffman and starring Jake Johnson as a foul-mouthed high school basketball coach trying to turn his depressing life around. It has the look of Bob’s Burgers, but the raunchiness of Big Mouth, and the new Hoops trailer has me all in. Hoops Trailer Jake Johnson (New Gir...

‘Mimic’ TV Series Directed by Paul WS Anderson in the Works

At long last, the worlds of Guillermo del Toro and Paul WS Anderson will collide! Mimic, del Toro’s American debut film, is now being turned into a TV series, with Anderson directing the pilot. As for del Toro, he has absolutely nothing to do with the TV show, which makes sense, since the experience of making the film was a constant battle, leading the filmmaker to disown the theatrical cut (a director’s cut was eventually released on Blu-ray). In the film, mutated insects prey upon hapless hum...

‘The Ren & Stimpy Show’ is Being Reimagined at Comedy Central

The Ren and Stimpy Show is being reimagined at Comedy Central, but original series creator John Kricfalusi will not be involved in any capacity after being accused of sexual misconduct a few years ago. Comedy Central sent out a press release about the Ren and Stim...

NBC Wanted Either John Cusack or Hugh Grant to Play ‘Hannibal’ Instead of Mads Mikkelsen

Hannibal is one of the best shows of the 21st century. A daring, strange, artistic blend of horror, lust, and fine dining, the Bryan Fuller series inspired by the books of Thomas Harris was so good that it was almost hard to believe it was a real network show. On top of all that, the series version of Hannibal Lecter, as played memorably by Mads Mikkelsen, became just as striking as Anthony Hopkins’ take on the character. But according to Fuller, Mikkelsen’s take on the cannibal psychiatrist al...

Wong Kar-Wai Sets ‘Blossoms Shanghai’ as His First TV Series

Back in 2015, Wong Kar-wai began development on the feature film Blossoms, based on the short stories by Jin Yucheng, intended to be his follow-up to his 2013 film The Grandmaster. But as the years passed, and Wong flirted with heading over to television with the now-dead Amazon series Tong Wars, Blossoms has bloomed into Blossoms Shanghai, a TV drama project that is set to be Wong’s television debut.

Craig Robinson to Star in Peacock Comedy Series ‘Killing It’ from ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Executive Producers

NBC saved Brooklyn Nine-Nine from cancellation after FOX nixed the cop comedy series, and it’s been going strong over there ever since (though the next season is undergoing some retooling in the wake of recent events).

‘Fargo’ Season 4 Trailer Teases a Wild Crime War and an Even Wilder Cast

The films of the Coen brothers have always been flexible in tone and genre, so it’s no surprise that FX’s Fargo television series has followed suit. Noah Hawley‘s oddball continuation/expansion of the Oscar-winning film has shifted over the years, dabbling in dark drama, screwball comedy, grand tragedy, and violent action. The latest season takes us back to the 1950s and into the middle of a war between an Italian crime family and Black crime family…and the latest teaser trailer suggests there ...
