As Netflix continues to expand internationally, Ted Sarandos said he’s got sights on offering as many as 20 original scripted series per year as he sat in conversation with Netflix-friendly creators Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad) and Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development) on Wednesday at Natpe.
“I think we can launch — successfully, high quality — around 20 original scripted shows a year, which means every 2 1/2 to three weeks you’re launching a new season or a new show on Netflix meant to be for really diverse tastes all around the world,” he said.
The question came in reference to Netflix’s recent original series Marco Polo, a $90 million production that drew mixed reviews but, he said, played extremely well overseas. “The launch and completion rates were comparable with Orange Is The New Black and House Of Cards, and more than that it’s happening around the world at the same time,” Sarandos said. »

Scandal resumes Season 4 on Thursday, Jan. 29 — yet ABC has not released any photos from that winter premiere. Instead, the first photos are from the following episode, airing Feb. 5, and the news is grim: Olivia apparently still is missing.
For one, the episode is titled, “Where’s the Black Lady?” — words, I will predict, that come out of the mouth of Opa visitor Marla Gibbs (The Jeffersons). Secondly, the synopsis reads, “With Olivia still missing, the team comes together to do whatever it takes to find her and get her home safely.”
Lastly, the look of anxiety/anguish on the faces of Quinn, »

The star is also co-writing the show with Mark Chappell (The Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret), and executive producing alongside Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development), Ben Silverman (The Office) and Peter Principato (Black-ish).
The synopsis suggests a plot that will provide an ample showcase for Will Arnett’s particular skill-set:
“Set in the insular world of Venice, California, Flaked is the serio-comedy story of a self-appointed “guru” who falls for the object of his best friend’s fascination. Soon, the tangled web of half-truths and semi-bullsh*t that underpins his all-important image and sobriety begins to unravel. Arnett plays Chip, »

So, Castle viewers, it appears we are 2-for-2 thus far in the private eye arc.
Because whereas last week’s episode found much merriment in Rick’s very first case, one which pitted him against Beckett and the boys, this time around there was the entertaining wrinkle of him working his own case — the search for a telenovela star’s valuable purse — which was at first only tangentially, but then directly, related to the murder at hand.
Sure, Rick’s P.I. business has yet to take off, website revamp or not. (Did anyone else freeze-frame the screen to search »

Netflix isn't "Horsin' Around" when it comes to Will Arnett. The streaming service has ordered a new series starring the "Arrested Development" and "Bojack Horseman" actor, which will premiere in 2016. That's right. If you're counting, this will be the third original Netflix series featuring Arnett. Netflix's summary: "Set in the insular world of Venice, California, 'Flaked' is the serio-comic story of a self-appointed 'guru' who falls for the object of his best friend's fascination. Soon the tangled web of half-truths and semi-bullshit that underpins his all-important image and sobriety begins to unravel. Arnett plays Chip, a man doing his honest best to stay one step ahead of his own lies." So Arnett will be playing a manipulative ego monster... Hmmm. Well. It's nice to see him stretching. But in seriousness, "Flaked" could be interesting. Netflix has yet to make any huge mistakes in »

Paramount's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was certainly a big hit at the box office last summer, taking in $191 million domestically and $477 million worldwide. However, it wasn't received quite so well with the nation's critics, earning just a 21% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Whether you love it or hate it, the remake did well enough for Paramount to give the go-ahead for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, which is set to hit theaters on June 6, 2016 from director Dave Green (Earth to Echo). While we wait for more details to emerge on the sequel, the folks over at Cinema Sins have broken down everything that's wrong with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
