paramount+ promo

What is Paramount+? The casual streaming subscriber might not know that it is a rebranded version of CBS All Access set to launch this March with a host of new original titles that appeal to every corner of the nostalgia market. But if a Frasier reboot isn’t your thing, Paramount+ also wants to remind you that it has critically acclaimed hits like The Good FightWhy Women Kill, and the entire Star Trek TV universe. Watch the new Paramount+ promo below.

Paramount+ TV Shows

This summer, CBS All Access will officially make the switch and become Paramount+. The rebranding will come with more than a name change, as the newly bulked-up streaming platform will also come with a cheaper subscription price. But like all good things, it comes with a catch.

Rugrats Reboot Teaser

A few years ago, Nickelodeon announced that a series reboot of the beloved Nicktoon Rugrats was in the works. Rather than sticking with the traditional 2D animation from its heyday, the kids cable network was planning on updating the series with computer animation. Now the new show is finally premiering later this year, but it won’t be on Nickelodeon. Instead, Paramount+ will be the home of the new Rugrats, which will feature the original voice cast reprising their roles. You can get a first look at the series in the new Rugrats reboot teaser below. Read More »

Paramount+ TV Shows

If you love watching reheated versions of old intellectual property, it seems like you are going to absolutely lose your mind for Paramount+, the soon-to-launch streaming service from ViacomCBS. During an Investor Day presentation, the company backed up a metaphorical dump truck and unloaded a metric ton of Paramount+ TV shows, including the fact that they’re developing TV versions of films like The Italian Job, Fatal Attraction, and The Parallax View, as well as revivals of Frasier, Yo! MTV Raps (yes, seriously), Inside Amy Schumer, Rugrats, and more. Find out what’s coming to the service below. Read More »

Mission Impossible 7 on Paramount+

Universal Pictures has already been shaking up the exclusive theatrical release window by sending their smaller and midrange theatrically released titles to VOD just 17 days after they hit the big screen. Then Warner Bros. Pictures came along and took things a step further by releasing all of their 2021 theatrical movies simultaneously on HBO Max for 31 days. Now Paramount Pictures is the latest to shorten the time their movies spend exclusively in theaters.

As part of a Viacom CBS investor day presentation today, Paramount Pictures announced that they will be sending blockbusters such as Mission: Impossible 7, A Quiet Place Part II, and Top Gun: Maverick to the recently rebranded streaming service just 45 days after they’ve hit theaters. Read More »

The upcoming Paranormal Activity movie is headed right to Paramount+ – and it has company. A new Pet Sematary film, which will serve as a prequel to the 2019 adaptation of Stephen King’s horror classic, is headed to the nascent streaming service as well.

halo tv series paramount+

Nascent streaming service Paramount+ (which technically isn’t very nascent at all since it’s just a rebranding of CBS All Access) just landed itself a high-profile title. The Halo TV series, based on the popular video game franchise, was originally destined for Showtime but will now drop on Paramount+ instead. You’ll be able to find it there in the first quarter of 2022.

voluntary committal series

Pretty soon, Joe Hill might catch up to his father Stephen King when it comes to film and TV adaptations. Several of Hill’s books and short stories have been, or will soon be, adapted to the screen, and a new title has joined the list. That would be Voluntary Committal, a novella that appeared in Hill’s excellent short story collection 20th Century Ghosts. Paramount TV is adapting Voluntary Committal into a series, with Brad Caleb Kane (Warrior) handling the script. The story is about a man who suddenly recalls a haunting incident from his childhood in the wake of his brother’s sudden disappearance.

The Man Who Fell to Earth TV series

In 2019, we learned that CBS All Access was developing a TV adaptation of The Man Who Fell to Earth, based on Walter Tevis’s 1963 novel and Nicolas Roeg’s 1976 sci-fi cult classic film version. That streaming service is being rebranded to Paramount+, but the show is still in the works – and it has now found its star.

Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave, Doctor Strange) will play a new alien character who lands on Earth. That news – especially the latter half of it – is probably music to the ears of people who are especially fond of David Bowie’s performance in the original movie. But while Bowie’s work will undoubtedly loom over this production, at least Ejiofor has room to do his own thing without having to portray that same exact character. Read More »

fraiser revival

Back in 2018, word broke that Kelsey Grammer was meeting with writers about a potential Frasier revival. Talk of the revival eventually fizzled out, but it looks like the idea isn’t completely dead. A new report indicates that talks for a Frasier revival are starting up again, with hopes of bringing the potential show to the new streaming service Paramount+. By all accounts, there’s nothing concrete yet and for now, this is all just talk. But don’t be surprised if Dr. Frasier Crane returns.
