‘Counterpart’ Trailer: New Starz Thriller From ‘The Jungle Book’ Writer Looks Truly Crazypants
To say we fully understand what’s in store when the upcoming Starz drama “Counterpart” premieres would be a lie. But it’s nothing short of intriguing. The high-concept drama, starring J.K. Simmons, is described as follows:

Counterpart” is about a mysterious world hidden beneath the surface of our everyday existence. Howard Silk (J.K. Simmons) is a lowly cog in the bureaucratic machinery of a Berlin-based United Nations spy agency. When Howard discovers that his organization safeguards the secret of a crossing into a parallel dimension, he is thrust into a shadow world of intrigue, danger, and double cross… where the only man he can trust is his near-identical counterpart from this parallel world. The show explores themes of identity, fate and lost love, posing the eternal question, “what if our lives could have been different?”

Connie Britton (and Her Amazing Hair) Is Back on TV in a New Ryan Murphy Show

Connie Britton (and Her Amazing Hair) Is Back on TV in a New Ryan Murphy Show
Connie Britton is back!

Less than a year after her Nashville departure, the 50-year-old actress has a brand new gig, courtesy of Ryan Murphy, with whom she worked on The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and the first season of American Horror Story.

Britton stars as a 911 dispatcher in Fox’s new show, 9-1-1, and we can’t think of anyone else we’d rather have on the case (other than Angela Bassett and Peter Krause, who also star in the drama, of course).

“There are two types of emergency. The first kind is the one we all have everyday,” Britton says in 9-1-1’s promo. “Then there’s the second kind of emergency, the kind that comes without warning.”

New Bright Trailer Is Lord of the Rings Meets Training Day

New Bright Trailer Is Lord of the Rings Meets Training Day
Netflix has been releasing a ton of original movies lately, and they plan on increasing that output next year. But few movies they release are going to be as high-profile as Bright, which arrives on the streaming service later this year. Now, a brand new trailer has been released that gives us a much better idea of what to expect, which pretty much looks like Lord of the Rings meets Training Day, as hard as that may be to believe.

The first teaser trailer for Bright gave us a very general idea of what to expect from the fantasy/sci-fi movie. Humans, Orcs and other fantastical creatures live together as if it's no big deal. Magical weapons exist. Stuff like that. But this full-length trailer actually gives us a sense of the story. Joel Edgerton is playing the first ever Orc who becomes a cop and Will Smith is stuck being his partner.
