Guillermo del Toro: How Netflix’s ‘Trollhunters’ Reconnected Him With the Joy of Childhood (And ‘Fraiser’)

22 December 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Here is an image to cherish: Guillermo del Toro, as a young boy, “watching a TV series on the floor, on my belly, with a glass of milk and a plate of cookies.” It represents more than just a pleasant memory for the director when it comes to “Trollhunters,” the new animated series he co-created for Dreamworks and Netflix. In crafting the story of Jim (played by Anton Yelchin, who tragically passed away earlier this year), a young man who gets chosen by a mystical amulet to serve as protector of a hidden troll kingdom, del Toro hopes to capture the spirit of the shows he grew up watching, including classic adventure series like “Jonny Quest.”

Clarke Peters’s favourite TV: 'I made so much dollhouse furniture on The Wire'

1 April 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Wire and Treme star on Gerald McBoing-Boing, Benny Hill and Downton Abbey

Looking at a little six-inch-square screen through a piece of tinted, coloured plastic. If you put it across your TV, the idea was that it would turn it into a colour TV. You had to send off vouchers from a cereal box to get your piece of plastic. It had yellow at the top, blue in the middle and green at the bottom.
