Tales of the City trailer

With his Before trilogy, Richard Linklater proved himself king of making movies that take place years apart and feature the same characters aging in real time. But that’s not the only ongoing fictional story to use that approach.

A new Netflix show called Tales of the City will continue a television story which began as a 1993 adaptation of author Armistead Maupin‘s nine-novel series. Actresses Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis starred in that original TV miniseries and reprised their roles in follow-up shows in 1998 and 2001; now they’re back again in this next edition, picking up with Linney’s character returning to 28 Barbary Lane and reuniting with her family twenty years after leaving them behind.

Queer Eye may have finished its third season too soon, but Netflix has another touching, feel-good LGBT series to fill that gap. Tales of the City is an upcoming limited series that presents the next chapter in the adaptation of the nine-novel series by author Armistead Maupin. Linney reprises her role as Mary Ann Singleton, which she originated in the beloved 1993 miniseries, in Netflix’s Tales of the City, which finds Mary Ann returning to the city that she loved so dearly 20 years later.

Ozark trailer 2

I thought the teaser trailer for Jason Bateman and Laura Linney‘s dark new Netflix thriller Ozark looked intriguing, but I hadn’t seen anything yet. The streaming service has released a full trailer and this show is giving off some serious Breaking Bad vibes: a money launderer for the cartel gets in over his head, moves out of the city and heads to the Ozarks, and tries to stay one step ahead of an FBI agent while doing terrible things to save his family.

Ozark trailer

Jason Bateman‘s new Netflix showOzark, couldn’t look like a greater contrast to Arrested Development, his other Netflix series about an ethically dubious businessman. While Bateman’s comedy series is about keeping the family together, his new show is about keeping the family alive. The actor-director is behind the camera on Ozark as well. He executive produced the drama and directed four episodes of the first season, which will be released later this month.

Below, watch the Ozark trailer.

fake warren g. harding biopic

The battle for late-night TV domination has been an ongoing one, but I think John Oliver has just taken the cake. At least for this round of “who can make the best joke about the closure of a wax museum of past presidents?”

John Oliver can. By buying five wax mannequins and recruiting four Academy Award nominees to star in a dramatic trailer for his fake Warren G. Harding biopic. And getting Anna Kendrick and Laura Linney to fight for the love of a creepy life-size replica of Warren G. Harding.

Ozark trailer

I love watching great television shows. But at this point, the rate at which Netflix is dropping new content on its subscribers is almost aggressive. They’re starting to seem like the Joker in The Dark Knight, setting fire to massive piles of cash in a darkened warehouse for no reason other than that they enjoy the chaos of it all. They just want to watch the world burn. And yes, I’m fully aware that I’ve reached peak #firstworldproblems status: I’m actually angry about how many good new shows exist that I want to watch.

And now the streaming service has released a teaser trailer for a dark new drama starring Jason Bateman and Laura Linney called Ozark, and damn it, this one also looks terrific. Watch the first Ozark trailer below.
