Blindspotting TV Series Trailer

Blindspotting was one of the acclaimed premieres to come out of the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Featuring Hamilton star Daveed Diggs in the lead role, the film dealt with some heavy themes, including systemic racism and police brutality, but it did it with some sharp satirical humor and hip-hop musical sequences. The film had a style all its own, and now a Blindspotting TV series will continue in the same vein, but now the main character will be one of the supporting players of the original movie.

Check out the Blindspotting TV series trailer below for a proper look. Read More »

Since GLOW is finished at Netflix, wrestling fans need a new show to latch onto that appeals to their body-slamming interests.

the continental plot details

Ian McShane has said he will not be reprising his role as assassin hotel owner Winston in The Continental, the John Wick TV series that’s been in development for years at Lionsgate and Starz. But though McShane won’t be in it, his character definitely will be.

Kevin Beggs, the chairman of Lionsgate TV, has revealed that The Continental is going to be a John Wick prequel that follows a younger version of Winston in the 1970s and explores “the origins of The Continental” hotel itself. And it sounds like they’re taking the BBC Sherlock approach here, with The Continental season 1 consisting of three 90-minute episodes. Read More »

american gods not dead

It might take a miracle to bring back American Gods, but Neil Gaiman has faith that the fantasy drama based on his acclaimed novel is not dead. In fact, it’s “definitely not dead,” Gaiman assured fans following the show’s cancelation by Starz. But considering American Gods‘ three turbulent seasons at Starz, it might take a little prayer to keep it going.

American Gods Canceled

American Gods had a turbulent run, and now the show has been canceled after three seasons by Starz. The Neil Gaiman adaptation was launched under the guidance of writers and showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green. However, reports indicate that Gaiman was unhappy with how Fuller and Green strayed from his source material (although some sources say Fuller and Green were pushed out because of budget reasons). Fuller and Green were replaced by Jesse Alexander, but Alexander ran into trouble almost immediately and was replaced by Charles “Chic” Eglee. During this musical chairs game of showrunners, several cast members left the show, and co-star Orlando Jones said he was fired because Eglee didn’t like his character. Now, after all of this, Starz has canceled the series after three seasons, with a chance for things to be wrapped up in a TV movie.

party down revival starz

Party Down, the very funny series that lasted two seasons, is coming back! That’s the good news. Now, for the murky news: it’s unclear which members of the original cast – Adam Scott, Ken Marino, Jane Lynch, Ryan Hansen, Martin Starr, Lizzy Caplan, and Megan Mullally – will be back. As of now, it sounds like none of them are locked down to return, and that makes this entire endeavor slightly suspect. But original creative team Rob Thomas, John Enbom, Paul Rudd, and Dan Etheridge are all back, and that’s a plus.
