The Uninhabitable Earth TV Series

Adam McKay has received plenty of acclaim for his HBO series Succession, and soon he’ll be delivering another project to HBO Max as part of his five-year overall television deal with the cable channel and Warner Media’s new streaming service launching later this year.

During the HBO Max Television Critics Association presentation yesterday, it was announced that Adam McKay would be adapting David Wallace-Wells’ global best-selling book and New York Magazine article The Uninhabitable Earth into an anthology series for the streaming service. The series will tell “stand-alone fictional stories covering a wide range of genres and possible futures that could result from the rapid warming of our planet.” That’s one way to show people how terrifying climate change can be if we let it get out of control.

Crisis on Infinite Earths Review

(Welcome to The Clock Tower, where we’ll break down the goings on of the The CW network’s Arrowverse. We’ll touch on things like themes, cultural impact, lead-ins to major events, ships, and more every week! Warning: this Clock Tower is filled with spoilers. Proceed at your own risk.)

Every major event, whether it be on the big screen or small, tells you that its world will never be the same by the time the credits roll. I’m pleasantly surprised to report that Crisis on Infinite Earths managed to deliver on that promise in spades. After a long break, the Arrowverse’s biggest crossover yet concluded in a spectacular fashion. Though I personally felt that the first three episodes were stronger as a whole, a lot went down in the last two episodes that truly does change the landscape of DC forever.

snowpiercer trailer

TNT’s Snowpiercer has had a rough ride to the small screen — almost as rough as the perpetual train ride at the center of post-apocalyptic sci-fi series based on Bong Joon-ho’s feature film and Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette’s graphic novel. First it lost its showrunner, then it lost the director of its pilot. Then it bounced back and forth between TNT and TBS before finally making its way back to TNT. Now, after five years of derailments and unexpected stalls, Snowpiercer has a premiere date. Watch the new Snowpiercer trailer to find out when this show is finally coming to TV.
