When Miracle Workers began on TBS, it followed two factory workers in Heaven tasked with handling humanity’s prayers after God has checked out. But that was only the first season of a series that was planned as an anthology comedy series where each season focused on an entirely new story with the same cast playing totally different characters. Now the third season is on the way, and the first trailer reveals Daniel Radcliffe, Geraldine Viswanthan, Karan Soni, Steve Buscemi, and Jon Bass, taking to the Oregon Trail in the year 1844.

Remember D.A.R.Y.L.? I sure don’t, but it was a movie from 1985 about a young boy who was secretly a robot. And now, for reasons that are far beyond my understanding, there’s a TV series sequel in the works. It’s one of several titles in development over at TNT and TBS, and Tony Hale is set to star as the robot boy, who is now all grown-up…and obsolete.

There’s a documentary called Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop that follows the comedian as he goes on tour following the famous debacle of losing The Tonight Show gig after Jay Leno decided he wanted it back. It sounds like that documentary title still holds truth even in these chaotic times, because Conan will be coming back to TBS with new episodes on March 30, despite the growing coronavirus concerns around the county. But don’t worry: the show will be shot on an iPhone, there will be no audience, and guests will use Skype to appear on the show. Read More »
The first season of Miracle Workers focused on Daniel Radcliffe, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Karan Soni as employees in heaven trying to stop God (Steve Buscemi) from destroying Earth. Now the show is returning for a second season, but since it was crafted as an anthology series, it’s going in a completely different direction and has absolutely nothing to do with the story from the first season. But not everything is different.
Miracle Workers: Dark Ages takes the same cast from the first season and turns them into medieval villagers just trying to get by in one of the most difficult and dark periods in human history. Needless to say, things are pretty bleak when people get excited to watch someone get killed in the middle of the village square. Watch the Miracle Workers: Dark Ages trailer for a glimpse.

Movie posters have lost some of their artistic value in recent years as studios opt foe cheap Photoshop jobs instead of stunning illustrations. But in case you haven’t heard, artists in Ghana have breathed new life into the world of movie posters by making movies look ieven more intriguing and enticing than the real marketing campaigns. Of course, that’s usually because the Ghanaian artists add elements that are completely insane and have nothing to do with the actual movie.
Well, Conan O’Brien recently went to Ghana as part of his Conan Without Borders series, and while there, he met with Ghanaian movie poster artist Daniel Anum Jasper to talk about his impressive work. It should come as no surprise that Conan commissioned Jasper to create a poster that perfectly captures the spirit of the late night talk show, and it did not disappoint. Plus, to make sure the poster is accurate, they even shot a trailer that tries to make sense of it all with an actual story.
Watch as Conan explores Ghana movie posters below. Read More »
Conan O’Brien has made waves by doing extensive traveling for remote specials for his late night talk show spin-off Conan Without Borders on TBS, which has also revamped its format to be just a half-hour show most of the time. And his next trip will take him to Greenland, where Conan tried to keep the country from falling into the hands of President Donald Trump. But beyond trying to make a ludicrous real estate purchase, he also gives a weather report, meets a lot of locals, check out the massive (melting) icebergs, and much more. Read More »
