“It’s incredibly exciting for me to see the story being brought to life by such a talented cast and crew,” said Williams. “I’m really grateful – and fortunate – to be working with people who care about the material as much as I do.”

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Clerkenwell Films
Wokoma plays Bola Ogun, a counselor whose 8-year-old daughter goes missing. “Frustrated with the police investigation, she takes it upon herself to catch the perpetrator, but as time runs out things take an unexpected turn,” according to a statement. Kate Henshaw and Fabian Adeoye also star, and production is currently underway in Nigeria. The film is directed by Akin Omotoso (“Vaya,” “A Hotel Called Memory”) and produced by Ego Boyo’s Temple Productions.
Wokoma was kept busy last year: she appeared on stage opposite Martin Freeman and Tamsin Greig in political comedy “Labour of Love” at London’s Noel Coward Theater, and also starred in Dan Sefton’s “Porters,” a hospital-set comedy commissioned by U.K. channel Dave, featuring appearances
Clerkenwell also counts supernatural drama “Misfits,” which was on E4 and picked up by Netflix, and cop series “Rebus” among its credits. Its series “Lovesick” started on Channel 4 in the U.K. before Netflix acquired it and then greenlit subsequent seasons as Netflix originals.
Based on the Charles Forsman graphic novels, “The End of the F***ing World” launched on Netflix in January, as did Season 3 of “Lovesick.”
Murray Ferguson, who founded the production company in 1998, said it made strategic sense to forge closer relations with BBC Worldwide with the international opportunities on offer for drama programming.
“After working closely with Helen and the BBC Worldwide team for many years, we have found them to be astute, supportive and commercially

A teenage girl and her little brother must survive a wild 24 hours during which a mass hysteria of unknown origins causes parents to turn violently on their own kids.
Folks, we have another one for the always hilarious Nicolas Cage montages of insanity; a clip of the veteran actor (known for unprecedented levels of craziness in his older years) destroying a pool table while intensely wide-eyed yelling out The Hokey Pokey. The kicker is that although it is a flashback integrated into the middle of Mom and Dad (written and directed by Brian Taylor who is most the for the Crank franchise, utilizing that same punk rock and frenetic style here as well), this is a father Before
Why Should I Watch It? “Grace and Frankie” has become one of the best Netflix series out there. Honestly, it always has been, but continued quality has solidified this tale of unexpected friendship as one of the most observant, confident, and entertaining comedies out there. Lily Tomlin is as dynamite as ever. Jane Fonda knows just when to bring down the house. Neither is afraid to engage in delicate topics typically ignored by mainstream TV shows, and the writers (including co-creator Marta Kauffman) continue to introduce pertinent new storylines while bringing in wonderful new faces. This year, that face belongs to Lisa Kudrow, so if you need one more reason to watch, she’s certainly it.
Best Episode: Reviews and review-like posts such as this are being held until Wednesday, January 17. Traditionally, embargoes so close to the release date are taken as a bad sign for the series’ quality,

Jon Hamm will be lending his talents to Off Season, director Jonathan Van Tulleken's feature debut
Late bloomer-turned TV royalty-turned feature film darling Jon Hamm has been tapped to star in the feature debut from BAFTA nominated director Jonathan van Tulleken, Off Season.

Hamm will now be offering his talents to director Jonathan van Tulleken in bringing his award-winning short film Off Season to full feature status. Off Season, the short, debuted in 2009 and went on to be the rare short film nominated for a BAFTA award.
