In a recent New York Times article, Hana Beshara, founder of NinjaVideo, the now defunct illegal online streaming site for TV and movies, says she is unrepentant for creating a site that chose to use other people’s intellectual property to make half a million dollars for herself and her collaborators on the site.
As a television drama writer who works mainly in the cable world, my writing partner Nicole Yorkin and I write characters like Hana all the time. Engaging characters with questionable morality who gleefully commit crimes for the thrill of it. It makes for good TV.
Hanna would be one of the archetypes — lost and without much of a sense of identity, until she stumbles into the world of online piracy. Her life changes dramatically as she becomes the “hot-tempered,” powerful Queen Phara, lording over her own online community of 60,000 devotees.

You have to be a bit daring to name your first feature film Wet Bum, but that’s the title of Lindsay MacKay’s directorial debut. The film, a coming-of-age drama about a teenage girl who works in a retirement home going through a complicated romance, premieres at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival and is an assured and enjoyable debut (you can check out our review here).
While MacKay’s film is sensitive and moving, much of Wet Bum’s attention is going to its star, teen actor Julia Sarah Stone. A Vancouver native best known to North American audiences for her role in The Killing, Stone was also named one of the festival’s four Rising Stars this year. It is clear that the young actor has a long career ahead of her. as she is already working on films with esteemed directors like Werner Herzog and Wim Wenders. »

Like the occult horrors investigated by its characters, True Detective seemed to come out of nowhere. HBO picked the show up on the basis of the first script, which was written by a little-read author whose only previous TV work was a couple of episodes of the much-maligned Us version of The Killing. Looks can be deceptive, however, as the writer in question – Nic Pizzolatto – had been building up a cache of influences and great characters, and the end product was helped no end by the cavalcade of cinematic talent who helped bring them to life.
Now that it’s here, though, it doesn’t look like it’s gonna go away. Since the first season we’ve been haunted by True Detective (much like, yes, the occult horrors investigated by its characters); by the performances of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, the well-drawn characters they played, the sumptuously spooky visuals, »

True Detective creator Nic PIzzolatto is deep in the process on developing the series' second season for HBO. We've got an update on the series from Deadline saying that Fast and Furious director Justin Lin is in talks to direct at least two episodes of the highly anticipated season.
The entire first season was directed by Cary Fukunaga, and he won an Emmy Award for his work on it. This time around the cable network is going to switch it up and bring on multiple directors to develop the series. Lin is a decent choice, he's not the greatest director in the world, but taking on a series like this would be a good exercise for him that will help him in his directing craft.
The second season will be set in California and focus on the investigation of a corrupt city manager who gets murdered amidst a potential groundbreaking transportation deal. »
