How Former Teen Idols Are Getting Second Lives on Ya Shows Like ‘Riverdale’ and ‘13 Reasons Why’

27 April 2017 2:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

More than 30 years after enduring “16 Candles,” Molly Ringwald is heading back to the school dance, and “Riverdale” couldn’t be happier.

The former teen icon, known for her membership in the ‘80s Brat Pack and her John Hughes pedigree, guest stars on Thursday’s “Riverdale” as Archie’s mom Mary. She and her estranged husband Fred (Luke Perry) will be back together temporarily to see their son perform at the high school dance. While the casting was a natural fit because of Ringwald’s red hair, her teen star cred also helped. Both “Riverdale” and “13 Reasons Why” are two teen-centric shows that have been bringing back former teen stars to play the older generation, and reaping the benefits.

‘Twin Peaks’ and Beyond: The Best Shows Inspired by David Lynch’s TV Phenomenon

19 April 2017 4:23 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s been more than 25 years since “Twin Peaks” first rocked ABC’s airwaves with the question of “Who killed Laura Palmer?” and made it clear that David Lynch was a master of television as well as film. While the auteur is returning with a revival series that picks up a quarter-century after the events of the original, we don’t have to only watch Showtime to get that “Twin Peaks” vibe.

Although the series only ran two seasons, the show has influenced countless of TV shows. The most obvious homages feature a central murder mystery that unearths the sordid underbelly of a small town. Wonderfully bizarre characters and dreamy, borderline nightmarish elements may also be hallmarks of a Lynchian homage.

Veronica Mars May Be Returning - but Not in the Way You Think

5 April 2017 | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Don't get overexcited (or prematurely angry), but Rob Thomas may be bringing Veronica Mars back. The creator did a Facebook Live session on Monday, and he mentioned that there probably won't be a sequel to the 2014 movie . . . but he's playing around with the idea of a six-episode miniseries. There's just one big problem: Kristen Bell is really busy. She's currently starring on The Good Place, and she has Frozen 2 and Bad Mom's Christmas to shoot and promote. We'll keep you updated with any new information, but this is all we know at the moment! »

‘iZombie’ Co-Creators Weigh the Possible End Games for Zombie TV Shows

4 April 2017 7:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

At some point, all good zombie shows must die. If the series is fortunate and not canceled prematurely, it can decide exactly how to end its story. But when it comes to the conflict between humans and the undead, what are the best possible story outcomes?

As The CW’s “iZombie” enters its third season, IndieWire asked co-creators Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright about the most viable end games for zombie shows.

Of course, not all zombie shows are created equal. Most of them feature zombies that are mindless and hungry, like “The Walking Dead,” “Z Nation” and “Ash vs. Evil Dead.” But with “iZombie” and Netflix’s “Santa Clarita Diet,” zombies are people too. They’re pretty much the same as they were before, except for that pesky appetite for human flesh and brainssss!

Go90 to Stream All Seasons of ‘Veronica Mars,’ ‘Fringe,’ Five Other WB Shows for Free

3 April 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Verizon is punching the thriller and sci-fi buttons with a pact to bring all seasons of seven Warner Bros. TV shows — including “Veronica Mars” and “Fringe” — to the free Go90 mobile-video service.

The deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution makes Go90 the exclusive streaming outlet for the series, which also include “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” “Almost Human,” “Babylon 5,” “Believe” and “Stalker.” Besides theoretically appealing to Go90’s millennial target demo, the shows were more affordable for Verizon to license than more recent TV hits. A source familiar with the pact indicated that it runs for one year or less.

The three seasons of “Veronica Mars,” starring Kirstin Bell as the titular teen private eye, will hit Go90 sometime in May. (Previously, the show was streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime Video; that deal expired in January.) The other six WB series will be available to stream on Go90 starting April 4.

Sony Buys Rights to Emil Ferris’ Graphic Novel “My Favorite Thing Is Monsters”

31 March 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Fantagraphics

If you’re a fan of Nancy Drew, “Veronica Mars,” and/or pulp fiction, listen up: Another amateur girl sleuth is headed for the screen, and this one faces off against monsters. Sony has won the screen rights to Emil Ferris’ critically-acclaimed graphic novel “My Favorite Thing Is Monsters” after a bidding war, Deadline reports.

Released this January, the story is set in late ’60s Chicago and serves as “the fictional graphic diary of 10-year-old Karen Reyes. It is infused with B-movie horror and pulp monster magazines iconography,” Deadline writes. “Karen tries to solve the murder of her enigmatic upstairs neighbor, Anka Silverberg, a Holocaust survivor, while the interconnected stories of those around her unfold. When Karen’s investigation takes us back to Anka’s life in Nazi Germany, where the reader discovers how the personal, the political, the past, and the present converge. Present throughout are monsters, real and imagined.”

No word on who will pen the screenplay or direct the film. Amasia Entertainment’s Bradley Gallo and Michael Helfant are producing the project, and Palak Patel is overseeing for Columbia Pictures.

“I always felt like [monsters] were kind of heroic because they were facing something,” Ferris told NPR. “Becoming a monster sometimes isn’t a choice that you have. We’re all that; we’re all ‘the other’ in one way or another.” She began working on “My Favorite Thing Is Monsters” after she was bitten by a mosquito that infected her with West Nile virus. “The virus left her paralyzed, but eventually she regained some use of her right hand and learned to draw again by duct-taping a quill pen to her hand. Ferris now walks with the help of a cane,” NPR details.

If you love the graphic novel and can’t wait for Karen’s story to come to the big screen, you’re in luck. “My Favorite Thing Is Monsters Vol. 2” is scheduled to hit shelves October 10.

Sony Buys Rights to Emil Ferris’ Graphic Novel “My Favorite Thing Is Monsters” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

In Netflix’s Powerful 13 Reasons Why, an Intimating Teen Spirit Rattles the Living

30 March 2017 4:05 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Based on Jay Asher’s novel about a high school rocked by a girl’s suicide, Netflix’s 13-hour, binge-ready 13 Reasons Why is a breakthrough in Ya storytelling.

The message may not strike you as radically new — adolescence isn’t so much a phase of life as it is a fissure that swallows us up between childhood and adulthood — but Reasons is more fluidly immersive than such TV classics as Veronica Mars, and it avoids the morbid romanticism of films like The Fault in Our Stars.

If anything, 13 Reasons — which includes Selena Gomez among its executive producers — is closer to »

Kristen Bell Reveals What Veronica Mars Was Supposed to Be Like in the Original Pitch

30 March 2017 8:29 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's been 30 years since screenwriter Rob Thomas came up with the idea for Veronica Mars and, after all this time, that original pitch has finally been unearthed.  Except, it wasn't about Veronica Mars at all. Instead, the 1996 "Untitled Teen Detective" treatment—intended to be a Ya novel at first—was centered around a 17-year-old boy named Keith in Austin, Texas. That's right, marshmallows—California's Veronica Mars didn't even exist.  Thanks to a new dramatic reading of the original pitch by Kristen Bell for Entertainment Weekly, we now know that much like Veronica, Keith worked with his dad at his private investigation »
