Netflix’s ‘Richie Rich’ Series Is “A Show Families Can Watch Together”

24 February 2015 3:44 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Back in October 2014, Netflix announced a pact with AwesomenessTV to bring the popular 1950s comic strip Richie Rich to the streaming platform as a kids’ TV show. Now, the updated retelling has ten episodes available on Netflix as of February 20, 2015.

The original Richie Rich featured the titular character as the son of rich parents, but Netflix’s version finds Richie (played by Dark Skies’s Jake Brennan) as a self-made entrepreneur. The youngster became a trillionaire after selling the green technology he invented because he stashed away his dinner vegetables instead of eating them.

Now, Richie now drives a mini Lamborghini around the huge house he shares with his father (Kiff VandenHeuvel), sister Harper (Lauren Taylor), friend Murray (Joshua Carlon), and friend Darcy (Jenna Ortega). There’s also Richie’s female robot assistant Irona (Brooke Wexler).

“He still lives in a big mansion, and he's surrounded by his family and his close friends, »

3 February 2015 8:31 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We already know that Kevin Smith is working on a Christmas horror anthology called Anti-Claus, but it looks like that's not the only holiday horror anthology he'll be part of now. Deadline reports that Xyz Films is working with a new genre label called Distant Corners Entertainment to produce Holidays, a set of subversive tales fashioned around globally recognized celebrations including but not limited to Christmas, Easter, Halloween and Mother’s Day. And much like horror anthologies such as V/H/S or ABCs of Death, the segments will be directed by various filmmakers. And part of the filmmaker line-up has been revealed. Here's a teaser poster for the film's sale at the European Film Market this week: In addition to Kevin Smith being on board to direct an unspecified holiday horror short, other directors currently include Gary Shore (Dracula Untold), Matt Johnson (The Dirties), Scott Stewart (Dark Skies), Nick McCarthy »

2 February 2015 2:00 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

After giving us a different take on the origins of everybody's favorite blood sucker in Dracula Untold, Irish director Gary Shore has joined indie and genre directors Kevin Smith, Scott Stewart (Dark Skies), and Nick McCarthy (The Pact), amongst others, for horror anthology Holidays.
