‘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...

‘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. ...

‘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...
