The Captain America star will topline Defending Jacob, a limited-run drama ordered straight to series at Apple’s streaming service.
Described as a “character-driven thriller,” Defending Jacob is based on the best-selling 2012 novel by William Landay, which follows lawyer Andy Barber (Evans) in the aftermath of his 14-year-old son, Jacob, being accused of murder. The allegations have a major impact on Andy’s family, and he must reevaluate what he thinks he knows about his child.
Brec Bassinger will star in titular role for the upcoming “Stargirl” series for the DC Universe digital subscription service, it was announced Thursday.
Here’s her official character description: “Courtney Whitmore (aka Stargirl) is smart, athletic and above all else kind. This high school teenager’s seemingly perfect life hits a major speed bump when her mother gets married and her new family moves from Los Angeles, California, to Blue Valley, Nebraska. Struggling to adapt to a new school, make new friends and deal with a new step-family, Courtney discovers her step-father has a secret; he used to be the sidekick to a superhero. ‘Borrowing’ the long-lost hero’s cosmic staff, Courtney becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.”

Paramount Pictures has tapped Michael B. Jordan to play Clancy hero John Clark in a new film series, Variety has learned.
Sources tell Variety that Paramount is developing two pics based on the Clancy books “Rainbow Six” and “Without Remorse,” both novels in which Clark is the main star. “Without Remorse” will be the first film of the two, serving as an origin story for the character.
Akiva Goldsman, who’s heading the new “Transformers” universe, will also be spearheading this endeavor as the film’s main producer with Jordan, Josh Appelbaum, and Corin Nemec also producing. Paramount is currently meeting with writers and directors for “Without Remorse.”
The news comes after Amazon and Paramount TV recently released a rebooted “Jack Ryan” series on its streaming platform, starring John Krasinski, to positive reviews.
Clark, a.k.a. John Terrence Kelly, is an
CBS announced last year that it would revive The Twilight Zone for streaming service CBS All Access with Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg’s Genre Films.
The Get Out director will explore similar creepy dimensions like the “sunken place” in the forthcoming CBS All Access series, which will be a modern reimagining of the original, which premiered in 1959 and continued through 1964. Creator Rod Serling also served as original host and narrator — and he had a very distinct and memorable voice. In the clip of the host announcement below, you’ll hear a mix of Serling and Peele’s voices doing the iconic opening intro.
“Rod Serling was an uncompromising visionary
Coming on board as series regulars are Bethany Joy Lenz (One Tree Hill), who will be playing a main character in a recasting, as well as Chantel Riley (Wynonna Earp), Isabel Arraiza (The Oath) and Eli Goree (Riverdale). They join Torres and fellow series regulars Simon Kassianides and Morgan Spector. The series is starting production in Los Angeles.
Centered on powerhouse lawyer Jessica Pearson (Torres) as she adjusts to the dirty world of Chicago politics, the spinoff hails from Ucp and is executive produced by Suits creator and executive producer Aaron Korsh alongside executive producer and showrunner Daniel Arkin. Doug Liman, David Bartis and Gene Klein of Hypnotic and Torres also executive produce.
The project was introduced in the Season 7 finale of Suits, which
An HBO 1970s period piece, The Deuce stars Franco, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gary Carr, Gbenga Akinnagbe , Margarita Levieva, Dominique Fishback, Emily Meade, Lawrence Gilliard Jr., Chris Bauer, Michael Rispoli, and Chris Coy. A fictional historical drama, inspired by real-life twins who would go on to operate business fronts for the Gambino family, The Deuce centers on the rise of modern-day pornography in 1970s New York City.

The punk icons presumably filmed the bare-bones clip during the same 1978 session that yielded their visual for “Don’t Come Close.” Throughout the video, the quartet perform with their trademark manic energy, singer Joey Ramone tilting the microphone forward and guitarist Johnny Ramone thrashing his axe as his bangs flail wildly.
The clip promotes the Ramones’ newly issued 40th anniversary edition of their fourth LP, Road to Ruin, available as a remastered single album and
“Kavanaugh’s confirmation has been thrown into turmoil since he was accused of sexual assault by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford,” Colbert said. “Now Dr. Ford’s willing to testify, but she wants an FBI investigation first, an idea that was shot down by Senate Judiciary Committee chairman and geriatric meerkat Chuck Grassley.”
Instead, the committee itself has pledged to look into Ford’s allegations.
That doesn’t mean the host partakes in the dollar-and-a-dream gamble, however.
“You’d think I would, especially rubbing elbows with all of these really rich, really lucky people,” Bromstad told us ahead of Friday’s Season 5 premiere. “No, I do not play the lottery because I’ve already won the lottery. I won ‘Design Star’ and that was my lottery. I’m generally not a very lucky person. So I’m good. I’ve won it, that’s my win. It’s hard for me to spend $30 on a scratcher, or $20, or even $10 on a few scratchers. I just don’t play enough. I’d rather buy canoes.”

“My intention was to let a silenced woman’s voice be heard. Far from seeing the piece as anti-feminist, I think the attacks on it are sexist (even — or especially — when made by women) and more than a tad racist,” she told the New York Post in an email.
“I felt I was opening the door on their townhouse and showing us an odd but affecting couple,” Merkin continued. “It’s strange how critics don’t think Soon Yi deserves to be heard, that the abuse she suffered, because it was at the hands of a woman and not a man, is somehow less valid.”
Merkin did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.

“Trump is insane. I think most people know, the guy – he is insane. We have a man who is president who is insane” Baldwin said during the program. “You can’t go far enough with this idiot. You can’t go far enough. You can’t go far enough.”
The 44th season of “Saturday Night Live” is slated to kick off on Saturday, September 29.
“Oh, I think he’ll be back,” show producer Lorne Michaels said of the possibility that Baldwin would return for the show’s upcoming 44th season. “I think there is probably no other actor who is looking to take that and follow Alec. And I think, for a new cast member to come in and try that would be a really tough thing to do.”
Michaels’ comments came on the latest episode of James Andrew Miller’s “Origins” podcast, which also featured interviews with Baldwin himself and a number of the sketch comedy show’s writers, stars and producers.

In July 2017, a private investigator arrived at a 22-acre ranch in rural Tehachapi, two hours north of Los Angeles. He'd brought a drone pilot to fly over the property, in search of a horse his client believed had been stolen from her and which she now thought to be in ill health. The unmanned vehicle slowly surveilled the property.
It never found the horse, Dexter, among the 11 steeds that were spotted that Saturday morning. But the drone did stumble onto something else. Beside a dry creek bed lay the rotting carcasses of a pair of horses, arranged ...
