The first season of the zombie drama streams on Netflix Oz and debuted on Netflix U.S. last week (October 15).
"Matchbox always tries to produce programs that work for an international audience. The international deal was reasonably simple to construct; the more complicated piece of the puzzle was working with Netflix, NBCUniversal and the ABC to work out the local Australian arrangements, working through windowing and how to manage on-demand."
Oliver-Taylor is excited about what the deal might mean for the local sector.
"We think that by bringing on Netflix to be a »

Jennifer is an Australian girl on the run from her past who washes up in Amsterdam. In a desperate attempt to stay one step ahead of the authorities, she joins a coach-load of tourists embarking on a tour of Holland s world famous windmills. When the bus breaks down in the middle of nowhere, she and the other tourists are forced to seek shelter in a disused shed beside a sinister windmill where, legend has it, a Devil-worshipping miller once ground the bones of locals instead of grain. As members of the group start to disappear, Jennifer learns that they all have something in common a shared secret that seems to mark them all for doom.

City of Tiny Lights is a noir inspired London thriller directed by Pete Travis, based on the novel by Patrick Neate which stars Riz Ahmed (currently to be seen on Netflix starring in the much-acclaimed The Night of), Cush Jumbo, and Billie Piper.
As the film moves through present day multicultural London, it also cuts back to Tommy's youth in 1997, telling the story of his friendship with a lad called Lovely (Antonio Aakeel), his mate Stuart (George Sargeant) and his growing love for Stuart's girlfriend, Shelley (Hannah Rae).
The filmmakers spent almost five months searching for the youngsters, cast by Celestia Fox. Beyond conventional casting methods they trawled youth clubs, theatre's and schools in search for the perfect young ensemble.

Over the weekend, the Television Academy handed out the Creative Arts Emmys — i.e., the awards not quite glamorous to be squeezed into this coming Sunday's 68th Primetime Emmy Awards telecast on ABC. Lots of interesting things happened, including Game of Thrones picking up 9 awards (the Creative Arts includes most of the technical categories), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend sharing an award of choreography but losing both song categories for which it was eligible (to Diane Warren's song from The Hunting Ground and the Jessica Jones theme music), and more. But the one that got my attention the most — and convinced me to finally change the way I do my annual Emmy preview column — was Character Actress Margo Martindale's repeat win for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama for her work on The Americans. I love both The Americans and Character Actress Margo Martindale, but she was in one scene all season, »

We currently live in a time where comic book adaptations permeate both TV and film. On the film side of things we have Marvel's Cinematic Universe, DC's Extended Universe, and the X-Men Cinematic Universe, among the main contenders. On TV, Marvel has a net cast over ABC and Netflix, Fox has a couple new shows set in their own universe hitting the small screen soon, and DC has the CW locked down with shows like Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl. So if you grew up reading comics, it's probably the best time ever to be alive.
While the market seems to be fully saturated, the trend doesn't seem to be slowing down, and now the Syfy Channel is joining the fray with their series Krypton, a show that's been in development for nearly a couple years at this point, and only just got a pilot ordered last April. »

Krypton is beginning to populate.
Georgina Campbell has been cast as Lyta Zod, the female lead in Syfy’s upcoming Superman prequel pilot, our sister site Deadline reports. Lyta is a cadet in Krypton’s military caste and part of the same family tree that spawned super-villain General Zod — which makes it extra-awkward when she strikes up a star-crossed romance with Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El.

Kneel before Zod (not that one). Deadline reveals that Georgina Campbell - who received rave reviews for starring in BBC drama Murdered by My Boyfriend and will next be seen in Broadchurch and Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword - has landed the role of newly created character Lyta Zod in Syfy's Krypton. The prequel TV series is being developed by Man of Steel scribe David S. Goyer. Krypton is set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel's home planet. It follows Superman’s grandfather Seg-El - whose House of El was ostracized and shamed - as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. It's not clear whether or not the show will have any ties to the DC Films Universe of The CW's Supergirl, but it seems highly unlikely. The trade adds that, »
The first series of Broadchurch took the UK by storm. Telling the story of an investigation into the death of an eleven year old boy, the programme really did grip the nation. Led by two formidable actors, Olivia Colman and David Tennant, the show’s second season was highly anticipated but failed to garner the same fever pitch frenzy as first time around. A third series is still in the works though and it seems that this time around the focus will shift and look into a different crime that will rock the small village of Broadchurch.
We spoke with actress Charlotte Beaumont (Chole Latimer) at this weekend’s Horror Channel Frightfest about what we can expect from the new series. Whilst hesitant at first, she did confirm that this time around the show will be a standalone story and also that it will be set later in time:

If AMC's The Night Manager is the first time you've given your full attention to Olivia Colman, you'll know her as John le Carré's incorruptible–and very pregnant–spy Angela Burr. But at home in the UK, Colman has already attained national treasure status, with three BAFTAs under her belt for Accused, Twenty Twelve and Broadchurch. As a student, Colman started out with the famous Cambridge University Footlights Dramatic Club, before launching into comedy with the… »
The Night Manager's Olivia Colman is currently filming the third and final season of the Broadchurch TV show, which airs on BBC America and ITV. Deadline asked the actress, who plays Ellie Miller opposite David Tennant's Alec Hardy, if she could spill any secrets about the last installment of the British crime drama program.Colman said they have filmed through episode five, but haven't yet seen the scripts for episodes six through eight. "It’s a bit of a whodunit, like the first series, and this time we’re trying to find the perpetrator of a sexual assault. They’ve got lots of new cast in it and lots of old faces as well. It’s really lovely."Read More… »
The film will be directed by Devlin and is set to begin shooting later this year in the greater Portland, Oregon area. Brandon Boyce wrote the screenplay and Electric’s Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan are producing alongside Devlin.
The film centers on two young car valets who use their business as a front to burglarize houses of their unsuspecting patrons. Life is good for these petty thieves until they target the wrong house.
Tennant recently played the Alec Hardy character on the ITV crime series “Broadchurch” and appeared as Dr. Zebediah Kilgrave opposite Krysten Ritter in the Netflix Marvel series “Jessica Jones.” He will next take on the role of Rd Laing in Robert Mullan’s “Mad to »

At 16, Georgina Campbell hated auditions and never had more than one line in the school play. So how did she beat Sarah Lancashire to TV’s biggest prize? The rising star on lucky breaks and why there’s no shame in playing the girlfriend
Last year, at the age of 22, and barely into her career, Georgina Campbell won Britain’s biggest TV prize for best actress. Not many people expected her to – she was up against Sarah Lancashire, Keeley Hawes and Sheridan Smith. And she was virtually unknown – her BBC3 drama Murdered By My Boyfriend, a domestic-violence drama based on a true story, was critically acclaimed but had nothing like the hype of Happy Valley and Line of Duty. But if you were one of the 3.5 million people who watched Campbell play Ashley – the young woman beaten to death by her abusive partner – with such restraint and realism, her win was no surprise. »
