Don Winslow’s 'Cartel trilogy' coming to TV
 

Quote

One of the pre-eminent crime writers of the last 20 years is coming to television.

Award-winning Don Winslow, author of the lauded Cartel Trilogy, has revealed that his books The Border, The Cartel and The Power Of The Dog have been optioned by FX Network and will be turned into an ‘epic’ TV series.

Deadline says about the trilogy:

The book trilogy spans a 45 year period and follows a DEA agent named Art Keller through America’s long-running war on drugs. The through line is a blood feud between the DEA agent and Mexican drug kingpin Adan Berrera. Much like the actual drug war, the books are often shocking in brutality and raw in humanity, portraying Mexican cartel power struggles, narcos and cops on both sides of the border, traffickers and drug mules, lawyers, journalists, junkies, teen hit men, asylum-seeking children and political corruption from Mexico poppy fields to the White House.

 

 

The Sinner renewed for a third series

Quote

The first two series of USA Networks’ The Sinner (shown on Netflix and BBC Four in the UK and across the world) have been very close to being classics. The anthology series stars Bill Pullman as a troubled detective, and in the first series we had Jessica Biel stabbing someone seemingly out of the blue, and then, in series two, it was the turn of Carrie Coon to portray an ambiguous cult leader.

The Hollywood Reporter says that…

Pullman will return to reprise his role as Detective Harry Ambrose in the third season, which follows the character as he investigates a car crash and uncovers a crime that pulls him into the most dangerous and disturbing case of his career. Matt Bomer, currently starring on DC Universe’s Doom Patrol and earning Emmy buzz for his season-long guest role on NBC’s Will and Grace, will portray the series regular role of Jamie, a Dorchester resident and expectant father who looks to Ambrose for support in the wake of an accident.

Interesting. Easy to see the scope for a spin off. The easy option of course is following a clone who doesn’t interact with Sarah at all - same world, same nagging issue that the audience know someone is a monitor, otherwise totally different.

or maybe we get to see the black hole Cal fell into...(I believe it’s called HBO...)

My guess is it wouldn't involve clones, but focus on the transhumanist ambitions of Neolutionists from another angle.

I’d be about as interested in an Orphan Black show without Tatiana Maslany, as I would a Penny Dreadful show without Eva Green...which is not very.

Grisse has been available on HBO for quite a while, right?  It's a 2018 production though, from HBO International, so maybe it wasn't.  Available info is confusing.  But I hadn't heard of it until now.

The Bay (ITV) is being described as Broadchurch in Morecambe....hmm,might have to give it a look.

Seems akin to say "but sonewhere shit". I imagine it will be far more dire given the state if Morecambe these days and the shocking difference in wealth between there and southwest England.

Perry Mason origin series, starring Matthew Rhys gets full series order from HBO

Quote

 

HBO has picked up the limited series starring Matthew Rhys as the title character after adding Emmy winner and HBO veteran Tim Van Patten (Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos) as helmer and executive producer.

Here’s what to expect:

1932, Los Angeles. While the rest of the country recovers from the Great Depression, this city is booming! Oil! Olympic Games! Talking Pictures! Evangelical Fervor! And a child kidnapping gone very, very wrong! Based on characters created by Erle Stanley Gardner, this limited series follows the origins of American fiction’s most legendary criminal defense lawyer, Perry Mason. When the case of the decade breaks down his door, Mason’s relentless pursuit of the truth reveals a fractured city and just maybe, a pathway to redemption for himself.

Quote

 

EXCLUSIVE: HBO has put in development Asunda, a drama series rooted in the namesake fantasy universe created by Sebastian A. Jones.Co-written and executive produced by Jones, Asunda is set in the culturally rich but war-torn world of Asunda, where an orphan girl is born of two nations and raised in a small desert town. Hunted by all, she will search for her ancestors and the courage to bind them against an ancient enemy.

Asunda is inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth epics and Greek mythology and is similar in its settings to Westeros, the world in which the HBO hit series Game of Thrones is placed.

The Asunda story is rather remarkable. I've never heard of Sebastian A. Jones or his work before, but he seems to have basically single-handedly leveraged conventions and Kickstarter to fund Stranger Comics, his imprint, and seems to have very thoughtfully approached things from the perspective of generating a fantasy world IP. It reminds me a little bit of Crossgen, who were basically created with the primary idea of generating IP that could be turned into film and television. The fact that all of his promotional videos feature his art director as a key figure, and the amount of artwork that has been generated, I suspect that was always the dream as well.

I have no idea if the comics are any good (I found a few pages and excerpts in reviews that made the art seem decent-to-good, but the actual setting seems a fairly derivative mish-mash and it's more sword and sorcery than epic fantasy), but the increasing number of backers for the Kickstarters certainly suggests he found a passionate, if niche, audience. It'll be interesting to see if it goes anywhere.
