Henry Cavill teases a secret project with a blurred image of a page with words on it, and of course someone unblurred it.  It's Mass Effect.

I assume it's a voice role for the upcoming ME game, because if it's an actual movie/TV adaptation I will join that article's writer in losing my shit.

Domina trailer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOKwEEnOBbY

The series will air in May 2021 on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW. It will also air in the USA on EPIX in June.

A new epic historical drama series, entitled Domina, is set to air on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW. The eight-episode production, created and penned by Simon Burke (the TV series Zen and Fortitude), with Australian filmmaker Claire McCarthy (Ophelia, the TV series The Luminaries) on board as lead director, will bring to life the power struggles of Ancient Rome from a different perspective: that of the women.

In detail, the story follows Livia Drusilla’s journey from a naïve young girl whose world crumbles in the wake of Julius Caesar’s assassination, to Rome’s most powerful and influential empress, driven by a deep desire to avenge her father and secure power for her sons. Livia and her peers navigate their way through a brutal society by means of strategy, conspiracy, seduction and murder. She will soon discover that seizing power is not enough: you must be able to keep it when everyone else wants it. In the press release disclosing the series’ first-look images and trailer, the production is described as a “visceral and authentic family saga, grounded in historical accuracy and bringing to life the incredible true stories of the women who would go on to create one of the most enduring and fascinating dynasties of all time”.

Kasia Smutniak (Perfect Strangers [+], Them) will play Livia Drusilla, with her younger counterpart played by Nadia Parkes (the TV series The Spanish Princess). They are supported by an international cast including Liam Cunningham (the TV series Game of Thrones) as Livius, Livia’s father; Colette Tchantcho (the TV series The Witcher) as Antigone, Livia’s best friend, ex-slave and closest ally; Matthew McNulty (the TV series Misfits) as the future emperor Gaius; Christine Bottomley (the TV series The End of the F***ing World) as Scribonia; Ben Batt (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Agrippa; Enzo Cilenti (Free Fire [+]) as Tiberius Claudius Nero; and Claire Forlani (Meet Joe Black) as Claudia Octavia. Isabella Rossellini (Blue Velvet, Death Becomes Her) makes an appearance playing Balbina, an early enemy.

I think some changes with Youtube have led to embedding breaking, alas. 

 

ETA: Think I've resolved it.

‘The Wire’s David Simon & George Pelecanos Set ‘We Own This City’ HBO Limited Series About Baltimore Police Corruption
 

Quote

 

https://deadline.com/2021/03/we-own-the-city-hbo-david-simon-george-pelecanos-1234707819/

We hear that the latest HBO project from The Wire’s EP David Simon and producer George Pelecanos is finally coming together with the premium network recently quietly greenlighting the project and casting already underway. The duo are working on a limited series based on the Random House book We Own This City: A True Story of Crime, Cops and Corruption by investigative journalist Justin Fenton.


Pelecanos told us back in October 2019 during The Deuce series finale, that their “next project is set in Baltimore, a miniseries for HBO. We rounded up the old (writing) crew from The Wire” and that the new show wasn’t a spinoff of that two-time Emmy-nominated series.

 

 

Natalie Portman and Lupita Nyong’o headline Apple TV+’s adaptation of Laura Lippman novel

Quote

 

Laura Lippman is one of the world’s best crime novelists, and now Apple TV+ has picked up her book – Lady In The The Lake – for series adaptation.

Furthermore, Deadline reports, the stellar case will include Natalie Portman and Lupita Nyong’o.

The story is “set in 60s Baltimore, where an unsolved murder pushes housewife and mother, Maddie Schwartz, played by Portman, to reinvent her life as an investigative journalist and sets her on a collision course with Cleo Sherwood, played by Nyong’o, a hard-working woman juggling motherhood, many jobs and a passionate commitment to advancing Baltimore’s Black progressive agenda.”

 

Fun fact: Lippman is married to David Simon

It's going to be very hard not to think of that new show as a sequel of sorts to "the wire"

Kung Fu, coming to the CW, is not only a reboot of the 1970's 3-season Kung Fu, but a reboot of Warrior, so They Say.  Or so I thought They Said?  It's a bit murky, the bit where Warrior is invoked.

It being the CW, I surely may be excused for harboring Doubts. Just coz there are vampires and blood is martial arts fighting going on, it will still be soap.

I don't think it's murky. It's just relating the historical situation and alleged relationship. This new Kung Fu has no connection to Warrior. It even has the creator of Kung Fu refuting that he stole Lee's idea.

The Mosquito Coast is still really bloody bizarre. The extended trailer has one little detail that fits the novel -- the fact that the kids are homeschooled and that the parents appear to be hippies -- but the rest is just way out there.

I watched season 1 of Ted Lasso earlier this week and loved it.  Just now discovered that season 2 starts on July 23rd.  Can't wait.
