Hoops Trailer

Netflix’s roster of adult-oriented animated programming is top notch, and they’re really starting to give Adult Swim and Comedy Central a run for their money. Their latest effort is Hoops, a new show created by comedian Ben Hoffman and starring Jake Johnson as a foul-mouthed high school basketball coach trying to turn his depressing life around. It has the look of Bob’s Burgers, but the raunchiness of Big Mouth, and the new Hoops trailer has me all in. Read More »

mimic tv series

At long last, the worlds of Guillermo del Toro and Paul WS Anderson will collide! Mimic, del Toro’s American debut film, is now being turned into a TV series, with Anderson directing the pilot. As for del Toro, he has absolutely nothing to do with the TV show, which makes sense, since the experience of making the film was a constant battle, leading the filmmaker to disown the theatrical cut (a director’s cut was eventually released on Blu-ray). In the film, mutated insects prey upon hapless humans. It’s pretty gross.

hannibal casting

Hannibal is one of the best shows of the 21st century. A daring, strange, artistic blend of horror, lust, and fine dining, the Bryan Fuller series inspired by the books of Thomas Harris was so good that it was almost hard to believe it was a real network show. On top of all that, the series version of Hannibal Lecter, as played memorably by Mads Mikkelsen, became just as striking as Anthony Hopkins’ take on the character.

But according to Fuller, Mikkelsen’s take on the cannibal psychiatrist almost didn’t happen, as NBC wanted either John Cusack or Hugh Grant to play the role.
