Agent Carter

Actress Hayley Atwell appeared at the Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in London and, according to MoviePilot, explained that if her Marvel TV series Agent Carter hadn’t have been cancelled, the third season of the show would have built more on her relationship with Jarvis and shown how her English upbringing shaped her as a person. It also would have focused more on the impact her brother had on her life, and possibly even revealed who she ultimately ended up marrying. Ah, what could have been…

AMC is experimenting with the way they choose to greenlight new television shows. They’ve opened writers’ rooms for three new projects that are under consideration for potential series, and the network wants to see scripts for multiple episodes and a detailed plan for a first season before they officially pick them up. Sounds like a smart decision to me. Producing strong writing under tight deadlines has to be one of the toughest aspects of making a TV show, so this feels like a good way to get ahead of that challenge a little bit.

The three shows they’re currently developing are:

NOS4A2 by Jami O’Brien

Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. Charles Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides, transporting them to an astonishing – and terrifying – playground of amusements he calls “Christmasland.” Vic, with her gift, is the only one able to track the superhuman Manx. But finding him is the easy part. Defeating Manx and rescuing his victims will take everything Vic’s got and nearly kill her in the process.

Pandora by Sam Vincent & Jonathan Brackley

Pandora is a global mystery-thriller that follows three converging storylines as ordinary individuals try to piece together dark secrets leaking out into the world after advanced malware dismantles encryption across the Internet.

Silent History by Claire Carré & Charles Spano

An adaptation of the award-winning app and novel created by Eli Horowitz, Matthew Derby and Kevin Moffett, The Silent History tells the story of a generation of unusual children — born without the ability to create or comprehend language, but perhaps with other surprising skills of their own. As the condition spreads to epidemic levels, theories form and society is faced with how to deal with this new evolution of human. Silent History plays on the fears of technology and the threat of “the other,” shaking up our assumptions about who we are and how we should live.

I had no idea the popular Alex Rider book series already received a movie adaptation back in 2006, but now it’s getting the TV treatment, too. Variety says the UK-based Eleventh Hour Films is adapting the series for the small screen, which will focus on the teenage spy and his ongoing quest to save the world. The Borgias writer Guy Burt is attached to write the show.

Stranger Things and Parks and Recreation - Ben Schwartz Meets Joe Keery

Looks like Parks and Recreation star Ben Schwartz won’t be in season 2 of Stranger Things, because in a hilarious conversation with Larry King, the actor/comedian was still angling for a chance to be on the show. I love Schwartz, but his appearance might be seen as the show pandering to fan theories, and I’m not sure the Duffer Brothers would be down for that. But you never know…

HBO’s Ballers is still going strong. I watched about three episodes of the first season due to my appreciation for its star, Dwayne Johnson, but I bailed quickly because this simply isn’t a show for me. Are any of you psyched that this is coming back soon?
