The Orville (2017– )
You’ll probably be familiar, if only by name or a vague recollection of a repeat when you were a kid, of the original 1960s Lost in Space, a campy pre-Star Trek sci-fi TV show about the Robinson family who, you guessed it, are lost in space. In 1998, thirty years after the original show ended, a big budget, big screen remake came out and did moderately well at the box office but wasn’t exactly showered with praise by the critics.
All was quiet on the Robinson family front until this new outing, but that wasn’t meant to be the case. About 15 years ago, another attempt was made to bring Lost in Space back to the small screen.

Then there’s the explosion in For Your Consideration events, as Television Academy members could, if they wanted to, attend a screening and panel discussion (and yes, they’re usually catered) almost every night of the week through April, May and June. Plus, streaming services like Netflix and Amazon have taken things one step further by renting out spaces and creating their own Emmy destinations.
Here’s the calendar of events for the 2018 Emmy season,
The classic comedy returned on Tuesday to 18.2 million total viewers and a 5.2 demo rating (across its double-episode run, per finals), easily marking this TV season’s biggest launch — besting even Young Sheldon‘s premiere, which did 17.2 mil/3.8 leading out of Big Bang Theory.
Suffice to say, Will & Grace‘s own revival launch (10.2 mil/3.) trails far behind, as do the series premieres of The Good Doctor (11.2 mil/2.2) and an NFL-boosted The Orville (8.6 mil/2.7).
ABC notes that Roseanne returned to an audience larger than its

The California Film Commission made the announcement on Monday, noting that “Sneaky Pete” will employ nearly 250 cast, 220 crew, and 2,510 extras. The series plans to spend more than $53 million in qualified expenditures — defined as the portion of total expenditures allocated for wages to below-the-line workers and payments to in-state vendors.
The relocation makes “Sneaky Pete” the 13th TV series to relocate to California under its three-year-old expanded tax credit program.

It’s been rumoured and planned for a long time, but this week finally brought the news that Jon Favreau will write and produce a live action Star Wars TV series. It’s news that will make Disney’s shareholder’s happy – countless people will sign up for their forthcoming streaming service purely for the show – and it should make fans of the films happy too; it’s just what the franchise needs now.
The Last Jedi provoked strong reactions, and Disney are apparently bracing themselves for Solo: A Star Wars Story to take a hit. I don’t have high hopes myself. A TV show, away from the main characters but rooted in the same mythology, could be the best element of the franchise for some time.
It’s become a cliché to talk about the superiority of television to film,
Per the official announcement, Favreau will be developing the series for Disney’s new “direct-to-consumer platform” — aka Disney’s own personal version of Netflix, which it has been developing for launch in 2019.
Favreau’s hiring isn’t too much of a surprise, given his long history of working on Disney-related projects, and he certainly has the relevant experience to take on a project of this scale. But the fact that Disney and Lucasfilm have yet to give a non-white man the opportunity to spearhead a “Star Wars” project on any sort of creative level cannot be ignored.
So, in the official announcement, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy
The medical drama has been the undisputed freshman hit of the 2017-2018 season. It is currently averaging a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 9.8 million viewers per episode in the Nielsen Live+Same Day ratings, making it the second highest-rated show on ABC, behind only “Grey’s Anatomy.” It’s continued strong ratings, both in Live+Same Day and in delayed viewing, all but guaranteed the show a second season. ABC previously picked it up for a full season after airing just two episodes.
Freddie Highmore stars as Dr.
“Get Out” won the Maxwell Weinberg Publicist Showmanship Motion Picture Award over Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” TriStar Pictures’ “Baby Driver,” Paramount’s “Daddy’s Home 2,” Fox’s “The Greatest Showman,” and Warner Bros.’ “Wonder Woman.”
The awards were presented Friday by the International Cinematographers Guild at the 55th annual Publicists Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Megan Bendis, Universal’s exec VP of domestic publicity, and Mark Markline, Universal’s senior VP of international publicity, accepted the award and noted that the studio actually ran two campaigns — one for the theatrical release a year ago, which stunned Hollywood with more than $250 million in worldwide box office; and an awards-season campaign, culminating in four Academy Award nominations.

Gossip Girl grad Jessica Szohr has boarded the Season 2 cast of the Fox dramedy, our sister site Deadline reports, playing a new crew member on the titular exploratory space vessel.
