Truth Seekers Series

One of the best on-screen duos in recent memory is undoubtedly that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

Now, Pegg and Frost will be working on a brand new TV series. Read More »

Bad Boys TV Spin-off

Update: The Hollywood Reporter says NBC has given a formal pilot order to this still-untitled show, and some new details about the plot have come to light. Those new details can be found at the bottom of our original article from October 2017, which begins below.

Plans for Bad Boys 3 may have stalled, but there’s may still be some more action yet in the form of a new Bad Boys TV spin-off. The planned show will focus on Gabrielle Union‘s character from Bad Boys II, an undercover operative with the DEA. While it’s doubtful Will Smith or Martin Lawrence‘s characters will show up, anyone looking for a Bad Boys fix might be keen to give the show a shot.

Breaking Bad 10th Anniversary

Breaking Bad, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this week, was far from the first TV drama focusing on an antihero. Bland chemistry teacher-turned-meth chef and eventual kingpin Walter White followed in the footsteps of mobster Tony Soprano, bad cop Vic Mackey, enigmatic ad man Don Draper, and other dark leading characters of television in the 2000s. What makes Breaking Bad so remarkable to consider now, after a decade, is twofold: it’s arguably the best of the antihero dramas and marked the beginning of the end of the subgenre’s heights.

the boys casting

Amazon’s The Boys has cast a bunch of superheroes. A bunch of filthy, no-good, vile superheroes who will have their faces kicked in by a team of antiheroes dedicated to policing the super-powered people who walk among us.

Like the Garth Ennis/Darick Robertson comic before it, this new series follows “the Boys,” a black-ops team dedicated to spying on, blackmailing, and even roughing up superheroes who stray out of line. And while we don’t know who will be the title characters quite yet, we do know who will be playing members of The Seven, this universe’s equivalent of the Justice League and the series’ primary antagonists.

y the last man tv show

Michael Green was one of the quiet heroes of 2017, with writing credits on Logan, Murder on the Orient Express, Alien: Covenant, and Blade Runner 2049. Beyond that, he was also an executive producer and showrunner for the audacious first season of Starz’s American Gods. What a year. What a collection of work!

Unfortunately, Green and fellow showrunner Bryan Fuller departed American Gods over behind-the-scenes disputes, but Starz’s loss could be FX’s gain. It seems that this could be the window for Green’s long-gestating small screen adaptation of the science fiction comic Y: The Last Man to get made.

American Crime Story Interview

American Crime Story returns tonight. Ryan Murphy’s anthology series, which captivated audiences with The People Vs. O.J. Simpson, now tackles The Assassination of Gianni Versace. This murder is a little different than Simpson’s, though. Andrew Cunanan murdered Versace at the end of a spree totaling five murders. The series is about the crimes, not the trial.

Executive producer and writer Tom Rob Smith spoke with /Film after a Television Critics Association panel for the second season. Based on Maureen Orth’s book Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History, The Assassination of Gianni Versace begins with the killing and moves backwards. Smith explained some of the details we’ll see in the show’s opening scenes and later episodes.
