The Fugitive: Kiefer Sutherland and Boyd Holbrook to Star in Reboot Series for Quibi

The Fugitive is returning to the small screen. Deadline reports Kiefer Sutherland and Boyd Holbrook will star in Quibi's new TV show reboot.

Based on the 1960s series and 1993 film, the drama series "centers on blue collar worker Mike Russo, who just wants to make sure his wife, Allison, and 10-year-old daughter, Pearl, are safe, when a bomb rips through the Los Angeles subway train he’s riding on. But the faulty evidence on the ground and “tweet-now, confirm-later” journalism paint a nightmarish picture: it looks to all the world that Mike was responsible for the heinous act."

Following Netflix’s most recent decision to stand firm on its cancellation of “The Oa,” the question remains, “what will save these shows?” When networks and streamers find that smaller favorites aren’t big cash cows, fans search for innovative ways to save them once they’re on the chopping block. In today’s digital world, social media seems to be the more instantaneous way to get shows back on the air. But it is certainly not a guarantee.

After “Timeless” fans caused a stir online following the show’s second cancellation with the #SaveTimeless campaign in 2018, the network opted to close the show with a two hour finale. It was a move producers Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke described as “the next best thing” since they were able to

Haunting and Unsettling Trailer for Stephen King's Castle Rock Season 2

I loved the first season of Hulu’s Castle Rock, which is a series that dives into the deep dark world of the Stephen King universe. The full trailer has been released for Season 2, and it’s got me super excited for the madness that is coming!

In Season 2, “a feud between warring clans comes to a boil when budding psychopath Annie Wilkes (Lizzy Caplan), Stephen King's nurse from hell, gets waylaid in Castle Rock." The fact that her character is involved in this next season is awesome and it looks like Caplan is going to be great in the role. She’s got the crazy and insane look in her eyes that the character needs.

Misery arrives October 23rd on Hulu. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think! Are you looking forward to the second season of Castle Rock?

Frightfest 2019: ‘Tales From the Lodge’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Mackenzie Crook, Laura Fraser, Sophie Thompson, Johnny Vegas, Kelly Wenham, Dustin Demri-Burns | Written and Directed by Abigail Blackmore

A group of middle-aged friends gather at a remote lodge to honour a friend who recently drowned in a nearby lake. With emotions running high, everyone makes the most of a gloomy situation by celebrating the best way they know how: swapping silly, scary stories that would have earned a giggle from their dearly departed pal. Urban legends about a masked slasher, a paranormal ghost hunt and a post-apocalyptic wasteland soon lose their fun shock value as the sextet become stuck in a true terror tale that exposes dark secrets no one could have possibly foreseen.

Tales From the Lodge continues the very British tradition of the portmenteau horror – a genre that is synonymous with the UK horror industry of the 60s and 70s, companies like Hammer, Amicus and Tigon, and

The Wonder Woman They Didn’t Want Us To See

Neil Calloway looks at the 2011 Wonder Woman pilot…

2017’s Wonder Woman marked the return of the Amazon Princess to the big screen, the first time the character had appeared in her own live action project since the Lynda Carter fronted TV show ended in 1979. It wasn’t meant to be that way, though. Like other big name superhero projects, there have been other attempts to get Diana Prince on the screen.

One of those came in 2011, when NBC created a pilot TV show for Wonder Woman that, as happens with these things, was never picked up for a series or screened anywhere. Adrianne Palicki, who had appeared in an unsuccessful Aquaman pilot in 2007 and an episode of Smallville in 2004, but was probably best known for starring as Tyra Collette in the series Friday Night Lights, was cast in the lead role.
