Where to Stream TV Shows About British Women Getting It Done

1 hour ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Some people like lawyer shows. Some people like teen dramas. Some like sci-fi series. And some of us have a particular soft spot for a genre I'm going to call British Women Getting It Done. Luckily, many of these shows are available to stream! To qualify for the Bwgid classification, a show must primarily be about a woman or group of women; those women must be British; and they must get something done. There are many shows that did not make this list that still include Bwgid, but said women are not the show's primary focus, and thus these shows do not qualify. Shows with British actresses playing non-British characters did not meet the criteria, nor did shows about non-British characters living in England. I also omitted "classics" like Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice, because people know what those are about. The number of episodes mentioned is the number »

The Flash

Kelly Frye has signed on to play DC Comics character Plastique in the upcoming "The Flash" TV series on The CW. In the series she'll play a more heroic incarnation of the character, at least initially. Plastique (aka Sgt. Bette Sans Souci) was a bomb disposal expert in Iraq.

Following the accident that gave Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) his super speed powers, Bette finds herself with the ability to turn everything she touches into a bomb. She seeks Barry's help as nefarious U.S. government forces chase her down. [Source: E! Online]

War And Peace

Lily James ("Downton Abbey") is reportedly in talks to appear in the BBC's upcoming ambitious mini-series adaptation of Tolstoy's classic novel "War And Peace".

James would play heroine Natasha Rostova, lover to Pierre Bezukhov (Paul Dano) an illegitimate son who rises in society. Andrew Davies ("Little Dorrit," "Pride and Prejudice") is writing the series. [Source: Yahoo ]

Black actors star in Us shows. So why is British TV different?

The Homeland star looks forward to the day he longer has to address the race issue in the casting of UK television roles

Three years ago, when I first mentioned the lack of diversity in British television at a Bafta screening of the first episode of Homeland, I thought, perhaps innocently, that I was merely shining a light on an issue that needed to be addressed. I was very candid that night and suggested that I probably wouldn't have been given such an authoritative, leading role as head of intelligence David Estes had the show have been made in Britain. I gave what I thought were justifiable reasons for thinking this and pretty much forgot about what I'd said almost immediately. I certainly didn't think my comments were as inflammatory as reported in the press the following day. "Harewood accuses TV bosses of racism," ran one headline, while others used »

First Look at Homeland’s Rupert Friend in Hitman Reboot, Agent 47

24 July 2014 4:01 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The late Paul Walker was originally attached to star in Agent 47, but following his tragic death last year, 20th Century Fox decided to recast the titular role and chose Homeland’s Rupert Friend.

Agent 47 is a reboot of Hitman (which starred Justified’s Timothy Olyphant as the lead character and grossed over $100 million worldwide back in 2007). The movie is based on the hit video game franchise from Square Enix, and this take on the bald assassin was shot in a number of locations including Berlin and Singapore.

Friend’s other big screen credits include Pride and Prejudice and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, so this will see him take on his first role in a big budget blockbuster. Of course, he’s no stranger to action thanks to his role in the Showtime drama and should have little trouble convincingly portraying the tough as nails anti-hero who »

FBI Artist Helps Create First Waxwork Likeness of Jane Austen

11 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Will the real Jane Austen please stand up? The Jane Austen Centre unveiled a waxwork likeness of the Pride and Prejudice author in Bath, England, on Wednesday, the closest "anyone has come to the real Jane Austen for 200 years," a spokesperson for the Centre says. Until now, the only accepted portrait of the writer was a sketch done by Austen's sister Cassandra in 1810. This sketch was the starting point for the waxwork, which was constructed with the help of former FBI forensic artist Melissa Dring.

House of Cards: The UK classic vs Netflix Us revamp

7 July 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

House of Cards will air on UKTV's Drama from Saturday (July 12) - but the star of this four-part serial is not Kevin Spacey's ruthless Us official Frank Underwood, but rather Tory chief whip Francis Urquhart, played with charming malevolence by Ian Richardson.

Adapted by Andrew Davies - writer of Mr Selfridge, Pride and Prejudice and many more - from Michael Dobbs's original novel, the UK iteration of House of Cards was a smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic. Scoring BAFTA and Emmy wins in the early '90s, it went on to inspire the acclaimed Netflix series.

"I feel flattered that Netflix chose to reconstruct it," says Davies. "And I'm delighted that ours has been rediscovered, and that it's going to be shown again on Drama."

But how does the original House of Cards compare to its modern counterpart? Though in many ways a »

The Book Version Of ‘The Lizzie Bennet Diaries’ Has Arrived

24 June 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

16 months after the final episode of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, creator Bernie Su has adapted his literary web series into a book. Su and collaborator Kate Rorick have authored The Secret Diary Of Lizzie Bennet, a novel based off of Pemberley Digital's YouTube adaptation of Pride And Prejudice. The Secret Diary Of Lizzie Bennet was first announced in January, when it was given a July 1st release date. Instead, it arrived a week before that date, hitting shelves just in time for VidCon. To promote the release, the Lizzie Bennet team returned to the web series' main channel for a pair of bonus vlogs starring lead actress Ashley Clements. The goal of The Secret Diary is to appeal to both diehard Lizzie Bennet fans and newcomers who have not yet fallen in love with the clever Austen adaptation. The novel satisfies the latter group by retelling many major plot points from the web series, »

'Hector and the Search for Happiness' trailer features Simon Pegg eating, laughing, loving

23 June 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Simon Pegg is known best for fleeing zombies, solving small-town crimes, and trying to escape the end of the world. But now he’s found himself with a relatively simpler goal: to find happiness.

A new promo for Hector and the Search for Happiness shows Pegg as a young London psychiatrist who’s married to Rosamund Pike (The World’s End, Pride and Prejudice)—yet somehow deeply unfulfilled. So Hector decides to jet around the world, asking strangers in foreign countries to explain what makes them smile. The whole thing bears a resemblance to a certain 2010 film about another soul-searching world traveler. »

Who is John Green? A crash course on The Fault in Our Stars author

17 June 2014 4:51 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Fault in Our Stars is the latest Young Adult fiction book to find success on the big screen, but there's something distinctly different about this box office smash. Firstly, it doesn't have a fantasy/sc-fi hook like Twilight, The Hunger Games or Divergent, and secondly its author is a man.

In a genre dominated by Jk Rowling, Stephenie Meyer and Suzanne Collins, Tfios scribe John sticks out like a teenager strolling around with an unlit cigarette. Who is this latest literary sensation? We deliver all you need to know about John Green below...

The Fault in Our Stars was inspired by Green's time as a student chaplain...

Before he became a best-selling author, Green had intended to become an Episcopal priest and spent five months as a student chaplain at a children's hospital. It was there he met children suffering from terminal illnesses and decided to become an author instead. »

Young Adult Book Authors Reveal Their Favorite Adaptations

11 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Fox

"The Fault in Our Stars" writer John Green is the latest best-selling Ya author to have his novel adapted from page to screen, and the results are overwhelmingly positive. Although not all of his peers have have been quite as lucky, the Ya community is filled with writers hoping their work -- which has been optioned, is in development, or is just a month or so away from hitting the big screen -- will manage to satisfy both existing fans of the book and moviegoers who've never heard of the book.

We caught up with several young adult authors at the annual Book Expo America, and found out which adaptations are their personal favorites, and the results range from childhood classics ("A Christmas Carol") to newer, trippier fare ("Adaptation"). Here are 11 Ya authors' picks for best adaptation.

1. Gayle Forman, author of "If I Stay" (in theaters Aug. 19)

Colin Firth's 5 best screen roles: Pride and Prejudice, A Single Man

11 June 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

When Colin Firth is good, he's very, very good. And when he's bad, he's in Mamma Mia!. Or Gambit. Or St Trinian's. You can really take your pick.

Judging by the reviews to date, this week's true crime drama Devil's Knot - which stars Firth as a private investigator looking into the case of the West Memphis Three - falls into the latter category. Which, given that Firth's co-stars include Reese Witherspoon, Amy Ryan and Dane DeHaan, is a pretty substantial disappointment.

But why linger on the negative? Instead, we've taken a look back on five of Firth's finest hours across the big and small screens.

1. Tumbledown

Four years after his breakthrough role in Another Country (which just barely missed out on a spot in this list), Firth earned the first of many BAFTA nominations in Richard Eyre's Falklands War drama. He gives a raw and unflinching central performance »

Lizzie Bennet Team, PBS Digital Studios Partner For ‘Frankenstein, MD’

5 May 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

PBS Digital Studios just delivered its first ever presentation at Digital Content Newfronts, and the network's biggest news involves its first ever scripted series. PBS' online video arm has teamed up with Bernie Su and Hank Green's Pemberley Digital for Frankenstein, M.D., a modern day adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Frankenstein, M.D. will be Pemberley Digital's fourth adaptation of a classic work of literature. The studio first put itself on the map with The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, a critically-acclaimed vlog version of Pride and Prejudice that struck a chord with a large fan base of (mostly) young women. From there, Pemberley adapted two more Jane Austen works through Welcome to Sanditon and Emma Approved. “We're eager to take the format that we’ve cultivated with our previous multiplatform series into a new genre with a darker tone," said Su. One of Pemberley's hallmarks is it expansive »
