Editor’s Note: I met Sean Williams at Comic-Con’s Hall H between panels on the first day of the Con this past July, chatting as people do. It turns out that Sean is a filmmaker, and he’s working on a sci-fi project – travel to another planet! strong women! – that sounds really great.
Last week Sean let me know that he was ready to start “officially” talking about the project, and wanted to know what I’d like to know. I told him I wanted to know, basically, everything. How the project got started, who’s involved, where he is in the process, etc. What follows is the narrative he wrote up on the spot on his phone and sent to me via Facebook Messenger in response. One long narrative that was completely engaging. He even copied and inserted biographies as he went along. It’s no wonder the man has won writing awards. »

From the start, from its very name, TNT was designed to make a statement.
Sure, the Turner Broadcasting empire at the time included TBS, but that channel had evolved from its roots as an Atlanta Uhf TV station that bulked up through the steroidal effect of “Superstation” satellite distribution to content-hungry cable operators. TNT, on the other hand, was the vision that Ted Turner — oracle of cable TV programmers — had for a new outlet that would compete head to head against the major broadcasters with original programming, sports and event fare.
An acronym epitomizing something explosive was only the beginning.
“I wanted it to be a major player and go after the highest-profile things you could have in TV — the Academy Awards and so forth,” Turner told Variety as he reflected on the 25th anniversary of TNT’s launch on Oct. 3, 1988. “We found a hell of a good name and we were off and running. »

The irreverent 22-part series about a rag-tag group of detectives will air on E4 in January following its premiere in the Us on Tuesday night.
Channel 4 struck a deal with Us studio NBC Universal for the UK premiere broadcasting rights to Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which was created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur, the pair behind the NBC comedy Parks and Recreation.
