Royal Scandals! Oh my!

Bianca Kenna will be seen in Lifetime’s upcoming MOW, ‘Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace‘. premiering September 6th at 8/7c.

Lifetime is going for the royal hat-trick with a third Harry & Meghan television movie.

Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace,” starring Jordan Dean and Sydney Morton, is set to premiere on Lifetime this fall. The first trailer for “Lifetime’s “Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace” has been released and it teases that “not all fairy tales have the perfect ending”.

It follows 2018’s Harry & Meghan and 2019’s Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal and comes as the pair are front page news again following their controversial Oprah interview on CBS.

Lifetime said that Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace would reveal what really happened inside the palace that drove Harry and Meghan to leave everything behind in order to make a future for themselves and their son Archie.

It will detail Meghan’s growing isolation and sadness, their disappointment that ‘The Firm’ was not defending them against the press’s attacks and Harry’s fear that history would repeat itself and he would not be able to protect his wife and son from the same forces that caused his mother’s untimely death. Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace will also look at the private family feuds between Will and Harry, Kate and Meghan, and Harry with Will and Charles, that lead to the ultimate break from the royal ties.

Harry & Meghan: Escaping The Palace is executive produced by Merideth Finn and Michele Weiss. Menhaj Huda is directing from a script by Scarlett Lacey.

Storyline: Following in the footsteps of Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, and Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal, the third film explores the epic fight Harry and Megan had to take on to leave “The Firm”. These two lovebirds deal with the struggles of being new parents, and unique challenges of being part of the Royal family. Can Harry and Meghan give up their royal ties to forge a new life on their own terms?
The film dramatizes the couple’s controversial conscious uncoupling from the crown after the birth of their son Archie and chronicles the choices they had to make during the early days of the Coronavirus pandemic.

We can finally announce it!!! Congratulations!!

Zebastin Borjeau has booked a recurring role as the young Joe Pickett on upcoming series, “Joe Pickett“.
 
Spectrum Originals’ hour-long drama series based on C.J. Box’s bestselling novels, starring New Zealand actor Michael Dorman cast as Joe Pickett, who is best known for his roles “The Invisible Man” remake and the Apple TV+ series “For All Mankind”.
 
The series hails from Waco creators John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle, Paramount Television Studios and Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher’s Red Wagon Entertainment.
 
Joe Pickett follows a game warden (Dorman) and his family as they navigate the changing political and socio-economic climate in a small rural town in Wyoming. Surrounded by rich history and vast wildlife, the township hides decades of schemes and secrets that are yet to be uncovered. The series will air for a nine-month exclusive run on Spectrum.
 

The cast will also include David Alan Grier, Julianna Guill, Sharon Lawrence, Mustafa Speaks, Paul Sparks, Skywalker Hughes and Kamryn Pliva.

Grier, a veteran of the Fox Television series “In Living Color” and a number of movies including the 1995 version of “Jumanji,” will play Vern, a gregarious, larger-than-life former game warden.

Guill will portray Marybeth Pickett, wife to Joe and mother to two young daughters. Lawrence will play Missy, the mother of Marybeth.

Speaks will portray Nate, a former Special Ops solider. Sparks will play Wacey, an ex-rodeo cowboy with a slick charm who is about to begin his campaign for sheriff.

Hughes will portray Sheridan and Pliva will play Lucy, the Pickett children.

Box is serving as an executive producer to the series, the second show produced from his works. The other, “Big Sky,” is currently airing on ABC.

“C.J. Box’s brilliant and beloved Joe Pickett novels draw you in with the quiet beauty of the Wyoming setting, but it’s the characters that keep you riveted in their complexity, passion and unique points of view — for better or worse,” said Katherine Pope, Head of Spectrum Originals.
 
“C.J. Box’s Joe Pickett novels truly have something for everyone—spellbinding storytelling, multifaceted characters, and of course the breathtaking setting of the Wyoming wilderness—and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with Spectrum Originals, Red Wagon and John Erick and Drew Dowdle in bringing these characters to life,” said Paramount Television Studios President Nicole Clemens. “The Dowdles have a sharp instinct for the specificity of this rich world. Joe Pickett is a ‘still waters run deep’ character and so we feel unbelievably fortunate to have Michael Dorman, who brings amazing depth to this character.”
 

New Zealand actor Michael Dorman plays the role of Joe Pickett.

“We fell in love with C.J Box’s Joe Pickett novels because of their nuanced take on morality in a morally ambiguous world,” said creators, writers, directors, showrunners and executive producers John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle. “We became fascinated with Joe’s obsession with the ideas of truth, fairness, and the order of things, and perhaps even more fascinated with the trauma that made him that way. These days, there is so much to relate to in the Pickett family’s desire for a simpler life, and also in the notion that unresolved elements of our past tend to follow us wherever we go. Spending the last few years with the Pickett family has been one of the great joys of our careers, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring them to life on screen.”

Our Little Snow Angel!

Naya Arneja has finished filming her recurring role on episode #307 and 308 of TNT’s series, ‘Snowpiercer‘.
 
Season 3 is currently in production and has been since early March 2021. It’s expected that season 3 is due to wrap filming by the end of July 2021.

News of the renewal came just under a week ahead of the launch of Season 2, which debut on TNT on Jan. 25. That means that we could easily expect the show to be ready again in January 2022.

The season will pick up where the second season left off. Layton and a small group of others are on a 10-car pirate train and are now in search for a warmer location to restart life on Earth.

Back on the main train, Mr. Wilford has to find a way to keep control when he knows Layton will return with good news for the passengers. There are plenty of allies of Layton on the train, but can Wilford find them all?

The first season of Snowpiercer, based on Bong Joon Ho’s movie of the same title (which in turn is based on a French graphic novel), performed well for TNT. It averaged about 1.25 million viewers for first airings and significantly more than that once delayed viewing and streaming were accounted for.

Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, “Snowpiercer” centers on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a perpetually moving train, with 1001 cars, that circles the globe. It is based on the graphic novel and 2013 film of the same name.

Snowpiercer took a very long road to its May 2020 premiere. It first went into development in 2015, with Josh Friedman adapting the source material. TNT ordered a pilot in late 2016 and ordered it to series in January 2018, then switched showrunners from Friedman to Orphan Black creator Graeme Manson.
 
Snowpiercer” is produced by Tomorrow Studios along with CJ Entertainment, who produced the original film.

Linda Dano (“Another World”) also stars.

Maggie (Lilley) is the head writer on a daytime soap drama whose declining ratings leave it in danger of being cancelled. Alice (Dano), the creator and producer of the show, wants to retire and hopes to pass the baton to Maggie. Wanting to boost ratings and save the show, Alice plans to bring back fan-favorite actor Darin (Paevey)…who also happens to be Maggie’s ex-boyfriend. When Darin exited the show to star in an ill-fated play, their relationship ended on a sour note, so Maggie wrote out his character. Now, she must convince Darin to return. Will they be able to set aside their old, hurt feelings and work together to save the show, and their careers, in the process?

A Little Daytime Drama” is from Two 4 The Money Media Inc. Kim Arnott and Ivan Hayden are executive producers. John Prince is producer. Matthew Willis is associate producer. Heather Hawthorne-Doyle directed from a script by Sandra Berg and Judith Berg.

Originally, A Little Daytime Drama was entitled ‘Love In The Afternoon’. However, Hallmark changed that. The phrase “Love In The Afternoon” was originally used as ABC’s campaign slogan between 1975-1985, for shows like All My Children, One Life To Live, and General Hospital.

An Enlightening Performance

Arthur Corber has completed filming a role in episode #101 of upcoming series ‘Gaslight‘.
 
New Regency TV series thriller Gaslight, which is being adapted from the QCode podcast of the same name by Miles Joris-Peyrafitte.
 
Jessica Rothe (Happy Death Day), Kelsey Asbille (Yellowstone, Fargo), are set to star, Marc Rissmann (Game of Thrones, The Man in the High Castle) and Will Dalton (Loving, Sergio) will also star.

In Gaslight, everyone thought Danny (Rothe) had gone missing. Towards the end of senior year she vanished one night leaving everyone confused and devastated…including her closest friend in the world Becca (Asbille). The series will pick up years later when late one night while Becca, her new husband and their baby son are having dinner, they get a visitor. It’s Danny. Inexplicably after all these years of no contact or explanation she’s returned and looking to reconnect. As we learn more about her and her boyfriend Ben, we soon come to realize there’s something darker and more sinister at play.

The podcast itself boasted an impressive cast. Asbille will reprise her role as Becca, but Chloë Grace Moretz originally voiced Danny. 

All episodes of Gaslight‘s first season will be written and directed by Joris-Peyrafitte, who is series creator, executive producer and writer. 

In 2016, Joris-Peyrafitte became one of the youngest winners at the Sundance Film Festival when As You Are won the Dramatic Special Jury Award. Shortly after, he directed Dreamland, starring Margot Robbie, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.

We saw how the topics our show depicts – depression, breast cancer, chemical dependency, domestic violence, friendship, family and love – are heightened by the challenges our world is facing right now. We’ll rediscover what our gang has always known in their hearts: With the love and support of your friends, you can get through anything.

“TO ALL THE BOYS: ALWAYS AND FOREVER” FELT THE LOVE AT THE MOVIE & TV AWARDS!

The voters for the MTV Movie & TV Awards have decided the Netflix original film has earned its spot among other classic Hollywood trilogies. They proved it by crowning the third instalment, To All the Boys: Always and Forever, as Best Movie during the awards ceremony on Sunday (May 16). The film’s star, Lana Condor, along with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before author Jenny Han and producer Matt Kaplan, came out onto the stage to accept the Golden Popcorn.

“Thank you for all the fans who voted. Thank you, Netflix. Jenny, thank you for trusting us with your books. Without that, we wouldn’t be here,” said Kaplan during his short speech, before handing it over to Han.

“You’ve shown so much love for Lara Jean. Thank you so much for that — and I ask that you keep showing that love for the Asian-American community at large,” Han said, referring to Condor’s character from the series.

The final instalment in the To All the Boys series was up against Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, Judas And The Black Messiah, Promising Young Woman, and Soul for Best Movie. While the other four nominees were all nominated for Oscars this year, To All the Boys: Always and Forever walked away with the Golden Popcorn.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before previously won two MTV Movie Awards in 2019 for Best Kiss and Breakthrough Performance for Noah Centineo.
