Aaron Raff, Steven Weigle (‘The Looming Tower’ VFX) on achieving ‘visual fidelity’ with visual effects in 9/11 docudrama [Exclusive Video Interview]

Visual effects supervisor Aaron Raff‘s top priorities for “The Looming Tower” were “accuracy and visual fidelity.” Based on Lawrence Wright‘s Pulitzer Prize-winning nonfiction book, this Hulu limited series starring Jeff Daniels, Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg and Bill Camp recounts the events leading up to the al-Qaeda terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Authenticity was especially important given the show’s editing style, which would often “cut from one of our visual effects shots into archival footage or news footage from the actual events.” Additionally, “the nature of these events are sensitive, and the goal was not to sensationalize or make anything look extra fantastic past the point of historical accuracy.”

“The Wire’s” David Simon Developing New Series Set During Spanish Civil War

It looks like we’re getting a new period drama from David Simon, the same guy that gave us The Wire and The Deuce. Simon is currently in talks with Spain’s Mediapro regarding A Dry Run, a new series that will be set during the Spanish Civil War. The show will follow some of Abraham Lincoln’s Battalion through their journey to fight fascism in Spain during the late 1930s. So far, they have the writers on board. The Wire’s George Pelecanos and Dennis Lehane have both expressed commitment to work on A Dry Run as head writers. Simon and Mediapro are

Maggie Gyllenhaal (‘The Deuce’) on how the series reflects today’s social climate: ‘The system is fundamentally misogynistic’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
It was crucially important to Maggie Gyllenhaal that she be a producer on HBO‘s “The Deuce” in addition to her starring role as Candy, a prostitute in 1970s New York City struggling to get by. “I just felt like I needed some kind of guarantee that I was going to be a part of the conversation,” she explains, since “so much of my body was going to be required in order to play this part in a realistic way.” Her agents, manager and even her friends told her she’d never get producing credit on a show she didn’t develop, so “when they gave it to me it was kind of amazing because it was the beginning of this collaboration. They were like, ‘Yes, we want all of you.'” Watch our exclusive video interview with Gyllenhaal above.

Gyllenhaal’s experience behind the scenes actually parallels her character’s in a way.

The Wire creator David Simon plans series based on Spanish civil war

The creator of the acclaimed Baltimore drama will focus on the 20th-century conflict for his next project. A Dry Run will follow the story of Us soldiers who fought for the republic

David Simon, the creator of The Wire and The Deuce, will turn his attention to the Spanish civil war for his next project. A Dry Run will focus on a group of Americans who travel to Spain to fight for the republic against Francisco Franco’s Nationalists.

The show will follow the Abraham Lincoln and George Washington battalions, part of the International Brigades, which fought in the conflict. The struggle lasted from 1936 to 1939 and saw Franco’s forces – aided by Nazi Germany – defeat the republicans.

The Wire Creator David Simon Is Developing A New Series About The Spanish Civil War

Creator of The Wire David Simon is back making television, and he has yet another new drama on the way about the Spanish Civil War. Variety reports the drama, tentatively called A Dry Run, is planned to be a six-hour miniseries about the Abraham Lincoln Battalion and George Washington Battalion fighting fascism during the Spanish Civil War.

Specifically, this drama will detail the account of those two American battalion's lodged in an international conflict from 1937 to 1939. Simon has reportedly been researching the event quite extensively and visiting the battle sites, so authenticity for this series should be high. Of course, we can only assume as much, as who would do such an oddly specific period piece and not shoot for authenticity?

I love The Wire and The Deuce, so I'm sure I'll love whatever this new series becomes. Can I suggest though that as opposed to "A Dry Run," we
