Fighting the good fight takes a gnarly turn in the series premiere of Constantine, NBC’s new supernatural drama based on the DC Comic Hellblazer. After watching Friday night’s premiere, are you willing to stand with the title character against the forces of evil?
We want to hear your thoughts on the episode, but first, a brief recap:
We first meet John Constantine (Matt Ryan, The Tudors) as he’s willingly being prepped for electroshock therapy at a psychiatric treatment facility in England. “In my line of work, there are days you just need to forget,” he tells us via voiceover. »
John Constantine‘s business cards read “Exorcist, Demonologist and Master of the Dark Arts” — and all three of those vocations get a workout in NBC’s new drama based on the popular DC Comics character.
After decades in the Hellblazer comics and one ill-fated run at the big screen, Constantine makes his TV debut Friday (10/9c). Welsh actor Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, The Tudors) plays the trenchcoated demon whisperer, a tortured con man who’d prefer to abandon his occult work but feels compelled to help those who need him most.

Most people would be happy to have an angel watching over their shoulder.
Most people are not Constantine.
In this exclusive clip from NBC’s forthcoming supernatural drama, exorcist-and-all-around-spiritual-wrangler John Constantine (Matt Ryan, The Tudors) gets a visit from a heavenly host named Manny (Harold Perrineau, Lost).
But Constantine’s not happy to see the winged one, and he’s even less pleased to hear about Manny’s mission.
The new series, based on the DC comic, follows Ryan’s tortured character as he fights evil, helps those in need and battles his own demons.

Is Natalie Dormer, one of television’s most indispensable supporting players, on the cusp of a Hollywood breakthrough? That appears to be the case today, with news that the Game of Thrones beauty has been selected by Screen Gems to lead its upcoming apocalyptic action-thriller Patient Zero.
The film focuses on the aftermath of an unprecedented global pandemic, a particularly aggressive form of rabies that turns those infected into extremely violent predators. One human (Dormer) inexplicably gifted with the ability to speak the language of the infected is tasked with finding a cure for the pandemic by tracking down the mysterious Patient Zero.
It’s the most sizable big-screen role for the talented actress to date. On the TV side of things, Dormer has amassed a huge fan base over the years by playing complex characters like Anne Boleyn on Showtime’s The Tudors, Sarah Etches on BBC series The Fades »

Gerard Depardieu will be joining the cast of new Hungarian drama It’S Showtime, Siberia.
The film follows a group of POWs in a Siberian camp during Wwi, who put on an old musical (stage show The Czardash Princess, which was first performed in 1915).
Depardieu is not the only big name connected to the project. Sarah Bolger (Stormbreaker, The Tudors) stars as a singer and Jamie Campbell Bower as the conductor. Academy Award winning director Robert Dornhelm (documentary The Children Of Theatre Street) will be behind the camera.
It’S Showtime Siberia sounds like a mixture of Life Is Beautiful and Timberlake Wertenbaker’s stage drama Our Country’s Good, both of which explore the use of art and humour in the face of extreme adversity and dehumanisation. The former follows a father’s attempts to “rescue” his son from the reality of the concentration camp they’ve been sent »
