Jul 6, 2018

We're back after a week off and boy has summer TV really taken root! From bad reality shows to even worse reality shows, we sure do have our work cut out for us!

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS THIS WEEK:

  • Yvette Nicole Brown will replace Chris Hardwick at Comic-Con as the moderator for "The Walking Dead" and "Fear the Walking Dead "panels
  • Clive Barker is rebooting "Nightbreed" as a TV series for SYFY.
  • Jordan Peele is developing a Sci-Fi anthology series titled "Weird City" for YouTube. Co-created and written by Peele and "Key & Peele's" Charlie Sanders, Weird City is "set in the not-too-distant future metropolis of Weird. Each episode will explore issues that pertain to present-day life in Weird — stories that can only be told through the prism of sci-fi and comedy. The six-episode effort is expected to debut on YouTube Premium in 2019."
  • A "Halo" live-action TV series is coming to Showtime in 2019.
  • Danny McBride and John Goodman will star in a new half-hour comedy series on HBO called "The Righteous Gemstones." According to THR, "McBride created the project and will pen the script, executive produce, direct and star in the story of a world-famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed and charitable work, all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ."
  • HBO is developing a new half-hour comedy from Fred Armisen and Lorne Michaels called "Los Espookys." The show will be entirely in Spanish and set in "a strange and dreamy version of present-day Mexico City and follows a group of friends turning their love for horror into a peculiar business."
  • Fox has canceled "Ghosted" but renewed "Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours to Hell and Back" so, cool?
