Apple TV show

About a month ago, we learned that the creators of Confederate – HBO’s alternate history series that drew widespread controversy based on the premise alone – were “not actively working on” that show at the time. Two of Confederate’s four creators, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, are slightly busy pulling together the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. And now we know what one of the others has been up to.

A new report says that Nichelle Tramble Spellman, one of the remaining creators of Confederate, is developing a brand new television show for Apple that has Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer lined up to star in it. Learn more about the latest Apple TV show below.

It Chapter 2 Casting

One of the biggest breakout box office hits of 2017 was the new adaptation of Stephen King’s classic horror novel It. Directed by Andy Muschietti, the film finally brought the story to life on the big screen in a way fans had been waiting to see for decades. Not only did it make huge bank at the box office, but it was acclaimed by critics and general audiences alike, and the sequel is set to arrive in September 2019.

However, what’s unique about It: Chapter 2 is that the story flashes forward 27 years after the events of first film and catches up with the kids in The Losers’ Club after they have grown up. Most of them have left their cursed hometown of Derry, Maine, but they feel compelled to return when Pennywise the Clown makes a comeback and starts killing again. Since the casting of the kids in It was such an integral part of what made the movie so engaging, the casting of these characters as adults is critical, and two of the names from the wishlist of talent fans would like to see star in the movie have said they’re down to clown: Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba.

jesus christ superstar john legend

Jesus Christ Superstar has found its, well, superstar. The upcoming NBC live telecast has cast John Legend as the titular Jesus Christ in a move that is sure to shake up the show’s premiere date of Easter Sunday.

But if anything, John Legend does fit the label of “superstar” quite accurately. A 10-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer who won an Oscar for his song “Glory” from 2014’s Selma, Legend has also stretched his acting chops on both TV and film, most notably appearing in last year’s Oscar-winning La La Land. Not to mention the Tony Award he nabbed for producing Jitney, the revival of August Wilson’s play. Could Jesus Christ Superstar be Legend’s ticket to the coveted EGOT?
