Hugo Blick returns to television tonight with BBC Two's The Honourable Woman - a new eight-part thriller starring Maggie Gyllenhaal as Nessa Stein, the daughter of an arms dealer caught up in an international political crisis.
In his 25-plus years in the business, Blick has led a long, varied and deeply interesting career - penning some of British television's best and most ground-breaking comedies and dramas and even branching out into acting.
Digital Spy presents Blick's career highlights - from a surprising debut to his noirish masterpiece.
Even ardent fans of Blick's work might be surprised to learn that he made his screen debut not as a writer but an actor, portraying the younger version of Jack Nicholson's Napier - alias the Joker - in Tim Burton's gothic big-screen take on the Dark Knight.
Blick appears only briefly in the film, but with that broad, sinister grin and icy blue eyes, »
But before we lose track in ‘what’s in a name?’, let’s get back to why we’re here and onto the interesting, entertaining looking What If starring Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver, Rafe Spall and Oona Chaplin.
It’s selling itself around the question of ‘friendship’ between men and women and whether it can ever really exist, i.e. Can we all be friends without sex getting in the way? What If focuses on Wallace (Radcliffe), who’s been repeatedly burned by bad relationships. While everyone around him, including his roommate Allan (Driver), seems to be finding the perfect partner, Wallace decides to put his love life on hold. It’s then that he meets Chantry »

Daniel Radcliffe has admitted he would love to play Robin at some point in his career.
When asked by Buzzfeed if he'd like to appear in any other movie franchise, the Harry Potter star said he would love to play Batman's sidekick.
"[I'd love to be in] Batman. If they reboot that again, I'll do that too.
"It's happening, isn't it? With Ben Affleck. I could be Robin, I'm perfect."

The Revolution(ary War) will be televised by History, and Jason O’Mara is joining the cause.

According to History, the six-hour miniseries follows the journey of our founding fathers—from the Boston Tea Party to the signing of the Declaration of Independence—as they “band together in secrecy to change the course of history and make America a nation. »

More than just your typical rom-com, What If spins the “friendship” question into new nooks and crannies of the relationship world, and does so from the perspective of some excessively quirky characters. Daniel Radcliffe, who to me has had varying levels of success attempting a wide array of characters, looks to have this role nailed down… possibly because there is a bit of Harry Potter about Wallace.
The new clip below expands on the “friendship bargain” you get in the trailer above, and is a pretty clever moment for the film.
Check it out, and make sure you have August 8th on your calendar.

Friendship is something akin to a business deal in this new clip from the upcoming indie romantic comedy "What If." A bumbling Zoe Kazan attempts to strike up a friendship with Daniel Radcliffe without trying to seem as if she is hitting on him. "I totally get that guys don't want to hang out with the girl with the boyfriend," she says. "But it just sucks, y'know. It just makes you feel like the only thing that is interesting about you is how you look with your clothes off." Kazan's awkwardness seems to amuse Radcliffe rather than make him uncomfortable.

History is making another addition to its original programming with an order for a new miniseries, Sons of Liberty. Hot off the continued success of Vikings, and the critical acclaim of other miniseries efforts (like The Bible and Hatfields & McCoys), the network now aims at what looks like a pretty interesting take on the lives of the biggest names of the American Revolution.
It seems as though we’re going for a “no really, they were just actual people,” approach to things, apparently trying to show that these were real men, with real lives and real problems, who threw themselves into something, probably far beyond their expectations. That could be a story worth telling, and there are some great cast members involved. Some audiences may have to be convinced that Ryan Eggold can get them to like him after he so recently got them to hate him on The Blacklist, »

It’s a story we’ve heard plenty of times before. An adorable guy (Daniel Radcliffe) has been skanking around with his well-intentioned bro friends for far too long without getting action, so one of them (Adam Driver) takes the initiative to get him back in the game. He meets an equally adorable gal, the woman of his dreams, even (Zoe Kazan), but it’s just not meant to be – sister already has a boyfriend (Rafe Spall) back at home. So what’s a ruffled-hair kid to do when he’s met the love of his life and she’s under the impression that they’re best friends? He pines, that’s what he does. The trailer for What If – the romantic comedy that will surely break all rom-coms if the hit list of tropes packed into just a few minutes are any indication – paints a neat and tidy picture of Wallace and Chantry’s inevitable romance »
