Following the announcement of the new “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” series earlier today, more details about the show have emerged via co-creator and executive producer Akiva Goldsman. If there has been one common criticism of the two recent “Star Trek” shows it has been that both ‘Discovery’ and ‘Picard’ have been too dark for their own good, losing the sense of optimism, wonder and positivity that often defined the franchise in favor of painting a future with a rather skeptical and almost grim view of space and humanity’s role in it. There’s also been complaints about the heavy serialisation of both shows. That won’t be the case with the new series which is set on the Enterprise in the years prior
It’s official – CBS All Access has announced the new series “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” which will see the pre-Kirk crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise return after their debut in the second season of “Star Trek: Discovery”. Anson Mount’s Captain Christopher Pike, Ethan Peck’s Spock and Rebecca Romijn’s Number One are all coming back for this third full live action show in the Alex Kurtzman-produced Trekverse following “Star Trek Discovery” and “Star Trek Picard”. The series is expected to explore all the years leading up to Christopher Pike’s infamous accident and Kirk taking over as captain of the famed Federation starship. The new show launches with a premiere penned by Akiva Goldsman from a story by him, Kurtzman and fellow executive producer
The animated series “Star Wars Rebels” closed out with a scene set post-“Return of the Jedi” as Ashoka Tano and Sabine Wren’s search for Ezra Bridger continued. The live-action “The Mandalorian” series is set in a time period not long after this scene, and we know that Rosario Dawson is expected to appear as Tano in the show’s upcoming second season which has already been shot. So that begs the obvious question, if Tano is going to show up does that mean Wren will as well? Wren certainly has a history with Mandalore so it would be understandable. Speaking with Deadline, ‘Rebels’ and ‘Mandalorian’ showrunner Dave Filoni was asked about the possibility of Sabine’s story continuing on the latter show and says: “Oh, I
Oscar-winner Nicolas Cage is reportedly in talks to play Joe Exotic, the convicted animal trainer made famous in the Netflix documentary “Tiger King,” in a scripted TV series about his life. Variety first reported that Cage would star in the series, which is being produced by Imagine Television Studios and CBS and is based on a Texas Monthly article titled “Joe Exotic: A Dark Journey Into the World of a Man Gone Wild,” by Leif Reigstad.

Hulu’s adaptation of Little Fires Everywhere has featured substantial changes to Celeste Ng’s novel, from changing the race of central characters Mia and Pearl to giving Elena Richardson and her youngest child, Izzy, fully developed back stories that helped explain their fraught relationship. “Find a Way,” the series finale, packed another surprise punch: We learned those little fires were set by all of the Richardson children — not just problem child Izzy, as it happened in the 2017 best-selling book. The idea to change that part of the ending occurred to showrunner Liz Tigelaar early in the adaptation process, but was cultivated in the writers’ room. “We thought there was an opportunity to create more mystery,” Tigelaar says. “Why tell the audience who did it at the beginning? Let’s make that
