NBC Reveals Reverie Premiere Date

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – April 9, 2018 – NBC has set premiere dates for its new immersive-reality drama series “Reverie,” starring Sarah Shahi and Golden Globe Award nominee Dennis Haysbert, as well as last summer’s #1 new scripted series, “Marlon.”

Batgirl Movie Is Back On With New Writer

Warner Bros. is lighting up the Bat-signal for Batgirl once again.

Two months after Joss Whedon left the Batgirl movie project, the studio is moving ahead on developing a new movie project based on the DC Entertainment heroine.

Christina Hodson, who wrote the upcoming Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, has been tapped to pen a new script featuring Barbra Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon.

Barbra Gordon is the most established version of the character, who was initially introduced in 1961 as Betty Kane. But the character was revamped in 1967 when television executives wanted to attract a female audience to the Batman TV series, then faltering in its third season. Yvonne Craig played the character whose last live-action big-screen appearance was with Alicia Silverstone in Joel Schumacher 1997 movie, Batman & Robin (the character makes a CG cameo in Ready Player One).

The Keith and Paddy Picture Show Returns 14th April on ITV



All star cast join Keith Lemon and Paddy McGuinness for series 2 of The Keith and Paddy Picture Show

Keith Lemon and Paddy McGuinness will be joined by an all-star cast for the second series of The Keith and Paddy Picture Show which will return to ITV in April.

Following a hugely successful launch series last year, the duo return with a six part series and their unique and hilarious take on iconic movies Grease, Top Gun, Jurassic Park, Pretty Woman and Terminator 2. Gremlins will air as a Christmas 2018 special.

Grease will see Keith and Paddy joined by Fearne Cotton, Stacey Solomon, Emily Atack and Emma Willis as The Pink Ladies with Marvin Humes as Kenickie (pictured above left). Nicole Scherzinger will play Keith’s vocal coach while Hunter from Gladiators will also make an appearance.

Pretty Woman sees Amanda Holden, Tracy Ann Oberman, Philip Glenister and Louise Redknapp (pictured above centre) make eagerly awaited cameos with Ainsley Harriot making a special guest appearance.

In Top Gun, Keith and Paddy will be joined by Sarah Parish, Keith Allen, Marc Warren, Kriss Akabusi and Paul Chuckle.

Terminator 2 features Jaime Winston as John Connor and Rick Astley (pictured above right) making a memorable appearance as T-1000.

Jurassic Park will feature Sally Phillips, Sian Gibson and Shaun Ryder alongside showbiz legend Bernie Clifton.

Marvin Humes warned ITV viewers to look out for his… “dodgy American accent. Expect a lot of collar flicking, and a lot of rubbing my hands through my hair, which I was very, very proud of as I’m getting a bit thin on top. To have a full head of hair was amazing.”

Louise Redknapp commented: “Apart from being delirious as we filmed on the coldest day of the year, the funniest moment of filming was watching Keith trying to get on a pair of thigh high PVC boots in a pair of mittens!”

Rick Astley said viewers could expect “…a mix of Pacino, Di Caprio, De Niro and Pinocchio,” from his performance as T-1000.

Humans Season 3 To Premiere in the UK In May


One year after the dawn of consciousness, a decimated and oppressed Synth population fights to survive in a world that hates and fears them. In a divided Britain, Synths and Humans struggle to broker an uneasy peace, but when fractures within the Synth community itself start to appear, all hope of stability is threatened.

Set against the maelstrom of political chaos, the ethical complexities of the dawn of a new species play out across a thrilling multi-stranded narrative. As the synth family, Mia (Gemma Chan), Niska (Emily Berrington) and Max (Ivanno Jeremiah) continue to battle for their right to survival, Joe (Tom Goodman-Hill) Laura (Katherine Parkinson) and their children Mattie, Toby and Sophie struggle to come to terms with the cataclysmic events of the last series and their deeply polarised views on the implications of the singularity. Joining the cast this series is Mark Bonnar who plays Neil Sommer, an intriguingly charming scientist on a government commission with whom Laura develops a strong personal connection.

Humans is returning to Channel 4 in May

Films with women or minorities in lead roles have led the box office 11 out of 12 weekends this year, according to data from Box Office Mojo, a site that tracks box office revenue.
