Back in April, a report surfaced that original Galaxy Quest co-writer Robert Gordon is developing a new TV series based on the cult classic sci-fi comedy, which debuted in 1999. That report revealed that Paramount was shopping the project around to networks and streaming services, and now it seems the Galaxy Quest adaptation has found a home. Entertainment Weekly reports that Amazon Studios has signed on to develop the series.
The original Galaxy Quest movie centered on the cast of a cancelled sci-fi TV series, who get recruited to go on a real-life outer space mission to save a nation of aliens, who believed their characters were actually real. The ensemble cast for the sci-fi movie includes Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell, Enrico Colantoni, Missi Pyle and Justin Long, who made his feature debut on the movie. The movie earned just $90 million at the »
Galaxy Quest has built up a cult following over the years, and it will now continue in a TV series.
Amazon Studios has picked up a small-screen version of the 1999 sci-fi comedy, according to Entertainment Weekly.
If you haven't seen it, Galaxy Quest centred around the cast of a Star Trek-style TV series who suddenly find themselves having to pilot a real-life spaceship for a group of aliens who mistook their series for a genuine documentary.
It has yet to be confirmed whether any of the original cast will return or whether it might be a reboot. It's probably going to be difficult to bring back some of the big name cast, including Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell.
However, the film's co-writer Robert Gordon is back to write the script and to executive produce the pilot. Director Dean Parisot is also back, alongside producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. »
The 1999 sci-fi movie starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman as actors who once appeared on a “Star Trek”-like TV series — so convincingly, in fact, that the aliens who later abduct these costars don’t know the show is fake.
The deal is also de jour, given how nostalgia is fueling so many other properties. Variety reported in April that Paramount, which produced the “Galaxy Quest” movie and has put increased energy into mining its vault for TV adaptations, had been shopping the project. Paramount is also a co-producer with 20th Century Fox TV on the Fox drama “Minority Report” and »

Hopefully, you’ve had a few minutes to play around with our Fall Entertainment Generator. But if you’re looking for straight and simple lists of things to look out for by medium, we’ll be breaking them out separately. Here’s a look at fall television.Mondays The Civil WarPBS, 9 p.m. (Sept. 7–11) Ken Burns’s groundbreaking documentary celebrates its 25th anniversary with five nights of his trademark grave voice-overs, slow pans over somber photos, and lilting American music. Minority Report Fox, 9 p.m. (Sept. 21) Team up with Meagan Good and Stark Sands to solve yet-to-happen crimes, à la Steven Spielberg’s 2002 film (see page 112), which failed to predict Tom Cruise’s current renaissance. Blindspot NBC, 10 p.m. (Sept. 21) Wouldn’t Memento make a plausible TV show? A Jane Doe covered in nothing but tats emerges from a duffel bag in Times Square, and only her ink will help her discover her identity. »

By the spring of 1988, several high-profile cases had brought the gang violence in Los Angeles to national attention. The fatal shootings of an 18-year-old college student and her 12-year-old neighbour were, according to a newspaper report, the 113th and 114th gang-related murders to have occurred in La County since the start of the beginning of 1988. The previous year saw 387 people killed in gang-related incidents.
Against this backdrop came Colors, Dennis Hopper’s unflinching and disturbingly authentic crime drama starring Robert Duvall and Sean Penn. Some of the film’s harshest critics called it exploitative and voyeuristic - a calculated attempt to cash in on the real violence that was regularly making headlines. Colors’ detractors were given further fuel when reports began to circulate of violent incidents occurring in »
CBS’s “Supergirl” and Fox’s “Scream Queens” are leaps and bounds ahead of other freshman fall TV broadcast shows in terms of fan anticipation and engagement on major social-media platforms, according to research from ListenFirst Media.
“Supergirl,” set to premiere on the Eye on Monday, Oct. 26, has accumulated 15.5 million engagements on Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, Wikipedia and YouTube in the 90 days after CBS announced the superheroine show at the upfronts in mid-May, according to ListenFirst’s Digital Audience Ratings system for TV. Campy horror-comedy “Scream Queens,” set to bow Sept. 22 on Fox, has garnered a Dar-tv rating of 14.3 million over that time frame, followed by CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow” at 8.7 million, NBC’s “Heroes Reborn” at 7.4 million and ABC’s “Quantico” at 2.5 million.
Of course, solid social-buzz metrics are no guarantee that a show will be a hit — or that it will even remain on the air. But »

We're just a couple of months away from the release of Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies. The Cold War–era thriller — which stars Tom Hanks, Amy Ryan and Alan Alda — is the first movie directed by Spielberg since Lincoln in 2012. It was written by Ethan and Joel Coen, and early buzz has been quite positive.
Now we have a question for you: What is the best Steven Spielberg movie? We're going to count any film he directed. Feel free to vote for a 1970s classic like Jaws and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, »
Minority Report's TV show is promising "a more colourful look - a brighter, more optimistic future." You can get more info here...
Although a recent casting change suggested some sizeable behind-the-scenes reshuffling was needed to translate its pilot episode into a series, the Minority Report TV show is one that has our attention.
The show hinges on the idea of a rogue pre-cog (Dash, played by Stark Sands) attempting to solve crimes with only a fraction of the whole image to work from.
The first trailer showed us that this doesn't always end well, with Dash seen manically wracking his brain for clues before a man plummeted out of a building behind him. It's a dark idea, but set in a sleek and shiny sci-fi future. Specifically, the action takes ten years after Steven Spielberg's Tom Cruise-starring movie.
Today, we learnt a little more about the cast »
Robots have been a staple on the big screen for many decades, showing up as far back as Fritz Lang’s 1927 classic Metropolis and as recently as Alex Garland’s 2015 film Ex Machina. With numerous depictions of robots have come numerous ideas of what they look like, what they’re capable of, whether they’re good or evil, and other such concerns.
Now vimeo user Mennomail has made a mashup of the various robotic representations on the big screen over the years. The video is set to both Fractals by Monea Music and Ich Will by Rammstein, and highlights both the similarities and differences in how robots have been depicted by various filmmakers. Mennomail also released a list of films from which scenes appear, which is as follows:
Films used (in alphabetical order)
1. Automata (2014)
2. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
3. Artificial Intelligence: AI (2001)
4. Alien (1979)
5. Aliens (1986)
6. Bicentennial Man (1999)

Fox’s small screen slate is getting a dose of futuristic sci-fi this fall in the shape of its Minority Report reboot. The sequel series is set ten years after the events of Steven Spielberg’s 2002 movie when PreCrime is obsolete. It imagines a world where exhausted cops long for the days when three psychics in a water tank told them who to arrest. A decade later, those subaquatic Precogs no longer serve the police. Instead, law enforcement now relies on different technology to apprehend criminals.
Spielberg’s three Precogs are still involved in the series, however, living out their days in a witness protection-type deal. Dash (Stark Sands) continues to suffer from visions; his twin brother Arthur (Nick Zano) is elsewhere; and Agatha (Laura Regan) appears to have her own secretive agenda. Enter Meagan Good’s cop Lara Vega, who crosses paths with Dash and the pair team up to combat crime. »

Disney’s long-gestating big-screen Flamingo Kid reboot appears to have quietly morphed into a prospective TV series.
I’m hearing ABC Studios is in the very early stages of developing a half-hour comedy adaptation of Garry Marshall’s 1984 film, which starred Matt Dillon as a working-class kid who takes a summer job at a tony beach resort to stalk be close to the girl of his dreams.

ABC is on the hunt for a writer to spearhead the project, which continues the TV biz’ current obsession with turning »
Last week, we reported that director Antoine Fuqua and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are teaming up with Warner Bros. Television to produce a new TV series based on the 2001 crime drama Training Day. The producers were getting ready to pitch the project to all four major networks, and one week later, Variety reports that Training Day has found a home at CBS. Depending on how quickly the project moves forward, hopefully we'll hear soon about who will star in the pilot.
The original Training Day movie starred Denzel Washington in his Oscar-winning role as Lapd detective Alonzo Harris, who spends a day with one of his new recruits, Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke), on his first day as a narcotics officer. Despite Alonzo's exemplary arrest record, Jake learns quickly that Alonzo and the rest of his team are dirty cops. The series will be set 15 years after the events of the movie, »
Will Smith is heading back to Bel-Air, with TV Line reporting that the star is developing a TV reboot of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. There are no plans for the actor to star in the reboot, but his production company Overbrook Entertainment is in the very early stages of developing this project. The pitch is set to be finalized soon, with the production company taking it to various networks over the next few weeks.
The project reportedly puts a new spin on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, while maintaining the spirit of the original series. The show ran on NBC for six seasons, between 1990 and 1996, launching rapper Will Smith's acting career. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air centered on Will Smith's character Will Smith, whose "life got flip turned upside down" when his mother sends him from his Philadelphia home to live with his aunt and uncle in their posh Bel-Air home. »
According to the official synopsis, Kyle (Herrera) and Gaby are "two star-crossed young lovers, as they pursue their dreams and passions through the sweat of line-dancing in honky-tonks, the grime of the oil refineries and the glamour of modern Texas".

Deadline was first to report Herrera's casting as rodeo-circuit rider Kyle, who flees Mexico after getting involved with the wrong crowd.
As well as Mexican TV series, Herrera has appeared in Netflix drama Sense8.
