WebSeries e On Demand / The First [Hulu] [Drama/Sci-Fi] [USA/UK]
« il: 14 September 2018, 13:11:40 »


Citazione
Beau Willimon, who created Netflix’s “House of Cards,” is heading over to Hulu for his next project: The First.

“The First,” is a drama set in the near future about the first human mission to Mars. The First is set in the near-future and will chronicle the first human mission to Mars and the challenges of interplanetary colonization. The series will not only focus on the astronauts and scientists on the mission in space, but also the ground team on Earth and the crew's family and loved ones. Sean Penn will play a former NASA astronaut named Tom Hagerty.

Willimon created and wrote “The First” and will serve as executive producer, alongside his producing partner Jordan Tappis. The duo’s company Westward Productions will produce and own the show, which will be co-financed by Hulu, Channel 4 and IMG.
“It’s a story about the human spirit,” said Willimon. “About our indomitable need to reach for unknown horizons. About people working toward the greatest pioneering achievement in human history. And about the cost of that vision, the danger and sacrifice — emotional, psychological, and physical — that’s required to achieve it. How ordinary, imperfect people band together and overcome a myriad of obstacles to grasp the extraordinary.”

Premiere 14th of September on Hulu. 8 Episodes.

WebSeries e On Demand / Ghoul [Netflix] [Horror] [India]
« il: 9 September 2018, 10:50:21 »



Ghoul is an Indian horror miniseries based on the Arab folklore monster ghoul, and the second Netflix original from India. The series is written and directed by Patrick Graham and jointly produced by Blumhouse Productions which is behind such films as “Paranormal Activity,” “Insidious,” “Get Out,” and “The Purge.”

The story is set in India in a dystopian future where fascism is at its top, and the story's main plot is the interrogation of a dreaded terrorist Ali Saeed in a secret government internment camp that ignites a series of horrifying and supernatural events in the aftermath. Radhika Apte plays the main character Nida Rahim, a promising soldier who is present when an important prisoner is brought to a remote military facility for interrogation. He instead, “turns the tables on his interrogators, exposing their most shameful secrets.” As for the horror element, perhaps the traditional definition of “ghoul” can give a hint of what to expect: “an evil demon, originally of Muslim legend, supposed to feed on human beings, and especially to rob graves, prey on corpses, etc.”

The miniseries was conceived based on a dream Graham had seen. Originally meant to be the first of 3 films in a deal between three production houses, Netflix acquired the production in February 2018 after Graham felt that a longer format would be better and had it turned into a miniseries. The first season released to positive reviews from critics, with praise to the performances and storyline.
Uscita: 24 Agosto, 3 episodi.

One Dollar follows a dollar bill and a murder…

The new mystery series is set in a small rust belt town in post-recession America, where a one-dollar bill changing hands connects a group of characters involved in a shocking multiple murder. The path of the dollar bill and point of view in each episode paint a picture of a modern American town with deep class and cultural divides that spill out into the open as the town’s secrets get revealed.

Musician Sturgill Simpson will be making his acting debut in One Dollar with the portrayal of a former steel mill worker. He is swept up in class and culture wars that ignite after a strange multiple murder.

Filmed on location in Pittsburgh, One Dollar is produced by CBS Television Studios. Matt DeRoss of Anonymous Content, Alexandre Dauman, Rafael Yglesias and Jason Mosberg will serve as executive producers, and Craig Zobel (The Leftovers) will direct all episodes and executive produce.

The series stars John Carroll Lynch (American Horror Story), Nathaniel Martello-White (Collateral), Philip Ettinger (Girls), Chris Denham (Billions), Kirrilee Berger (Just Add Magic), Gracie Lawrence (The Good Wife), Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton), Jeff Perry (Nash Bridges), and musician Sturgill Simpson.

One Dollar will premiere on the streaming service CBS All Access on August 30th. The season includes ten episodes.

Visto il pilot posso dire che, se vi sono piaciute Fargo, Ozark e Outsiders questa serie non vi deludera'.

For fans of their former, this new show will be right up your alley. The tone is exactly the same as it was on Brickleberry: incredibly raunchy and insane!
Paradise PD is all about some small-town, “backwater Southern-fried” police officers who work out of the Paradise Police Department. They all just happen to be terrible at their jobs.

10 episodi da 30'.

Proposte & Domande / [NEW - USA - THRILLER/HORROR] THE PURGE
« il: 1 September 2018, 11:03:52 »
THE PURGE's 10 episodes television adaptation is a thematic cousin of the previous blockbuster installments. But showrunner Thomas Kelly says having 10 hours to play with will refocus the franchise on character-driven stories and help ground the series in reality.
“Can you imagine we actually go out on Purge Night? For us, in terms of the violence, it's really how it lands on the characters,” Kelly says. “How it informs them, and how we see how they react to it and what decisions they make when faced with the horrors of the Purge Night”
The franchise is often described as dystopian. Kelly, pushed back on the idea of The Purge being dystopian, but rather timely and a cautionary tale.

The Purge is designed to be completely accessible to neophytes. The series starts several years into the annual tradition according to which all crimes, including murder, are legal for 12 hours as a tension release valve for the nation. We begin with an all-caps countdown to Purge Night in an unspecified city, in which we meet our various characters whose lives will inevitably intersect.

There's Miguel (Gabriel Chavarria), a former Marine whose parents were killed on the first Purge Night, trying desperately to find his sister Penelope (Jessica Garza) before she falls in too deep with a Purge-worshipping cult. There's Jane (Amanda Warren), spending her Purge Night on the barricaded 38th floor of an office building attempting to finish a financial transaction for demanding boss David Ryker (William Baldwin, expertly settling into a niche as Hollywood's best Alec Baldwin impersonator). Young real estate developers Rick (Colin Woodell) and Jenna (Hannah Emily Anderson) are attending a wealthy Purge Night gala in hopes of securing investment from a sneering plutocrat (Reed Diamond, effortlessly outacting everybody around him) with impeccable taste and scary appetites.

The Purge itself kicks off near the end of the first episode, which leaves time for more than ample mayhem over the 10-episode first season, premiering September 4th.

CBS All Access’ new drama Strange Angel explores the true, bizarre, dual life of Jack Parsons, a 1930s rocket enthusiast who helped create Pasadena’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory but also fell into an occult religion than performed magic sex rituals. As he got deeper into Thelema, the religious movement created by Aleister Crowley, Parsons also became tight with L. Ron Hubbard — the sci-fi writer who would eventually create Scientology.

Strange Angel drama from Mark Heyman and produced by Ridley Scott, picks up in the 1930’s, with Jack (Jack Reynor) and his partner in rocket science Ed (Peter Mark Kendall) trying to get funding from CalTech in order to get more ambitious with their experiments. Jack, convinced of his brilliance and frustrated at his chemical plant day job, can’t understand why people refuse to recognize that both he and rockets (his two biggest loves) are the future. His wife Susan (Bella Heathcote) believes in him, but is restless for his long-promised plans to come to fruition. Meanwhile, their unsettling new neighbor Ernest (a leering Rupert Friend) keeps dropping hints that he might know of a way they can transcend their frustrations to be a little bit freer, if only they’d leave behind their perceptions of what they should be doing.

10 episodes, CBS All Access: Thurs. June 14

Condor is AT&T Audience Network’s 10-episode straight-to-series thriller produced by MGM Television and Skydance TV. On the show, inspired by Sydney Pollack’s 1975 political thriller Three Days of the Condor, Max Irons (The White Queen) will play Joe Turner, modeled after Robert Redford’s iconic role in the movie.
Written by Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg, Condor follows young CIA analyst Joe Turner, whose idealism is tested when he stumbles onto a terrible but brilliant plan that threatens the lives of millions.
Turner is an idealistic millennial who secretly joins the CIA hoping to reform it from within. But when everyone in his office is massacred by professional killers, this brilliant analyst is forced out of his ivory tower think tank and into battle with the most dangerous elements in the military-industrial complex. If he is to have any chance of surviving, Joe will have to do things he never imagined himself capable of — and discover that no one knows their true character until they’ve been tested under fire.

THE CAST INCLUDES: William Hurt who plays Joe’s Uncle Bob Partridge, a higher-ranking member of the CIA who works closely with the deputy director (Bob Balaban), Brendan Fraser and Mira Sorvino.

Season 1 premieres June 6 on Audience Network. The series is produced by MGM Television and Skydance Television.

The YouTube Red original series Impulse (set in the world of Jumper) features a rebellious 16-year-old girl named Henry (Maddie Hasson), who has always felt different and longed to escape her small town. In the action thriller, she soon discovers she has the extraordinary ability to teleport. The first time she realizes this, she is in a truck with her high school’s Golden Boy, who tries to rape her. She has a seizure and teleport's, in the course of which she inadvertently crushes him, leaving him a paraplegic. This confirmins that she really is different from everybody else, but that comes with its own set of problems, as people want to control her.
What the show does best is deal with consent and the lingering trauma a sexual assault can cause a victim. It's a multi-episode process that's almost always in the foreground as Henry faces the constant presence of her attacker; suffers self-doubt as her story is questioned; and shies away from other intimacies in her life, already a problem for the new girl in school and for one of those sci-fi characters whose burgeoning adolescence and nascent powers are intermingled.
10 episodes.

Cast: Maddie Hasson, Missi Pyle, Sarah Desjardin, Enuka Okuma, David James Elliott, Daniel Maslany, Tanner Stine, Craig Arnold.***

Premiere June 6th.

Proposte & Domande / [NEW - FX - DRAMA - DANCE/QUEER] POSE
« il: 4 June 2018, 08:32:53 »
FX unveiled the first full-length trailer and premiere date for Ryan Murphy's history-making drama Pose.

Pose looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in 1980s New York: the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world. Set in New York City in 1987, Pose centers on the city’s underground LGBT subculture known as “ball” culture, in which men and women don extravagant themed costumes and compete for trophies and prizes. It’s a vibrant, energetic scene, and the balls featured in Pose‘s first episode put even the most iconic RuPaul’s Drag Race lip syncs to shame.
The FX drama first introduces us to the House of Abundance; in ball culture, houses are safe spaces where young people can find a second family of sorts, particularly when the alternative is living on the streets after their real families have banished them for being gay or transgender. The House of Abundance is clearly a respected one, and house mother Elektra isn’t afraid to get creative: In the first ball of the series premiere, Elektra and her children walk in head-to-toe royal garb… which they stole from a museum near the ball venue, resulting in a truly glamorous arrest for Elektra and her house children when the cops show up at the event.

But when Blanca, a transgender woman in the House of Abundance, is diagnosed with HIV, she parts ways with her house, feeling for the first time like she should follow her own dreams. She decides to start her own house, and not long after finding herself a new home in the city, Blanca takes in her first “child”: Damon, a young man who was recently thrown out of his house for being gay — and for loving dance.
Toplined by frequent Murphy collaborator Evan Peters, Kate Mara and James Van Der Beek, Pose features the biggest cast of transgender actors in series-regular roles as well as the largest recurring LGBTQ cast ever for a scripted U.S. TV series. The five trans actors are MJ Rodriguez, Indya Moore, Dominique Jackson, Hailie Sahar and Angelica Ross, with each one playing authentic transgender characters.
"The show is about the search for being authentic, about creating opportunities," Murphy told reporters in January. "We're past an era of straight men playing these roles. It's time to think differently and offer more opportunities to people who want to work. Many of this cast have never been in front of the camera before."

Murphy co-created the show with frequent collaborator Brad Falchuk (Glee, American Horror Story) and Steven Canals. Murphy's American Crime Story collaborators Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson (The People v. O.J. Simpson and The Assassination of Gianni Versace) as well as Alexis Martin Woodall (The Normal Heart, Feud, American Horror Story) and Sherry Marsh (Vikings). Murphy will direct the first two episodes. Ballroom legends and survivors serve as consultants for Pose.

The series will premiere Sunday, June 3 at 9 p.m. FIERCE!

David Morrissey is Inspector Tyador Borlú in BBC Two’s adaptation of China Miéville's mind-bending novel The City & The City on BBC Two.

Tony Grisoni (The Young Pope, Southcliffe, The Red Riding Trilogy) has adapted this four-part genre-busting thriller from one of Britain’s foremost fantasy writers in a production made by Mammoth Screen and directed by Tom Shankland (Les Misérables, House of Cards,The Missing).

The cast also includes Lara Pulver (Sherlock) as Borlú’s wife Katrynia, Mandeep Dhillon (Some Girls) as Constable Corwi of the Besźel Policzai, Maria Schrader (Deutschland 83) as Senior Detective Dhatt of the Ul Qoma Militsya, Ron Cook (Hot Fuzz) as Borlú’s superior Commissar Gadlem, Danny Webb (Humans) as hard-right nationalist politician Major Syedr, and Christian Camargo (Penny Dreadful) as Doctor Bowden, an American academic.

When the body of a foreign student is discovered in the streets of the down-at-heel city of Besźel, it’s just another day’s work for Inspector Tyador Borlú of the Extreme Crime Squad (David Morrissey). But he uncovers evidence that the murdered girl came from Ul Qoma, a city that shares a dangerous and volatile relationship with Besźel, and this case will challenge everything Borlú holds dear.
The story is set in a unique world. Two cities — the poor Besźel and wealthy Ul Qoma — occupy the same geographic space, with populations that aren’t permitted to interact and have their own unique cultures, languages, and architecture. The citizens of each city can sort of see one another, but are conditioned to ignore denizens of the other city; “breaching,” or breaking that separation, is a grave crime, and it often results in residents being deported by a mysterious secret police force. Borlú is tasked with investigating the murder of a Ul Qoma student named Mahalia Geary. He must piece together the circumstances of her murder, and how it’s connected to the separation between the two realities.

China Miéville, three-time winner of the prestigious Arthur C. Clarke Award, published The City &The City in 2009 to dazzling acclaim, drawing comparisons with Kafka, Orwell and Philip K Dick. He says of the television drama: "It’s been extraordinary and moving to see this huge process, whereby a book written alone is collectively transformed into something familiar yet quite new. And it is extraordinary and moving to see the final result."

The City & The City was filmed on location in Manchester and Liverpool. The producer is Betsan Morris-Evans (NW, Endeavour) Robyn Slovo (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) executive produces, alongside Tony Grisoni, Preethi Mavahalli and Damien Timmer from Mammoth Screen and Lucy Richer for the BBC.

The City & The City begins on Friday 6th April.
