The series follows three unrelated people whose worlds collide when they discover newfound abilities to manipulate dreams, and by extension, the dreamers themselves. They must now determine how to use their gifts once they realize the fate of the world rests with them. The series stars David Ajala, Will Yun Lee, and Lizzie Brochere.
“‘Falling Water’ turns the traditional dramatic thriller on its head by tapping into the power of something we all have access to: dreams,” said Chris McCumber, president of entertainment networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “We look forward to continuing this bold, completely unique story.”
The drama hails from Universal Cable Productions and executive producers Gale Anne Hurd of Valhalla Entertainment, Blake Masters, the late Henry Bromell, and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. Rémi Aubuchon will join the series as showrunner for Season 2, which will debut later this year. Aubuchon »

For a film in which a Tibetan mastiff with big musical dreams stalks a jaded feline rock star while honing his supernatural martial arts powers and dodging kidnapping attempts from a gang of lupine Mafiosi who run a pro wrestling business on the side, “Rock Dog” is surprisingly uneventful.
Based on a graphic novel by Chinese musician Zheng Jun, this animated Chinese-American co-production cribs freely from “Kung Fu Panda,” “Ratatouille,” “The Muppets,” and “Flashdance,” taking those influences and flattening them out into an easy-listening version of the classic rock star origin story. “Rock Dog” is entirely inoffensive, and its low-key pace and no-frills animation style might come as a bit of a relief in contrast to so many frenetic kids movie spectacles. But taking an ode to the power of musical rebellion and running it through the mill of committee-thinking winds up being no rock and roll fun.

Well, it’s 2017. The very first day. It’s the time of year when folks look backwards into what has been, and try to give it some perspective and look forward to what may come. It’s also when some folks make resolution of what they’re going to do differently now that they have a clean slate. I don’t. It’s not that I don’t have many faults to correct (I do) but I know I won’t even remember them in a week or so, let alone keep them.
What I’m going to do is look forward, not with predictions, but what I would like to see in the coming year in pop culture.
I’d like to see the Fantastic Four published again— but only if Marvel remembers what they’re about. This isn’t just a team, it’s a family. You can »
