Welcome to Punch Drunk TV, where your intrepid hosts Jack Conway and Aaron Pruner navigate the often tumultuous Peak TV landscape -- one drink at a time.

Feb 3, 2017

As you can tell by our title, we sometimes get a bit tipsy when recording. That may lead to insane rambling at times. If you're listening to the beginning of this episode, rest assured, this is still a television podcast and not a commercial for alcoholic root beer...

NEWS:

  • Peter Capaldi will leave "Doctor Who" after its upcoming new season
  • The Good Place has officially been renewed for a second season
  • RZA directed the sixth episode of "Iron Fist" -- titled, “Immortal Emerges from Cave” -- because RZA loves kung fu!
  • Greg Berlanti may be moving his "Black Lightning" TV series from FOX’s development slate to The CW. Again, Jack, can you explain what "Black Lightning" is?
  • AT&T’s Audience Network is moving forward with an adaptation of Stephen King’s “Mr. Mercedes” starring Brendan Gleeson and Mary-Louise Parker. Harry Treadaway (who played Victor Frankenstein in "Penny Dreadful") will play the killer
  • During the "John Wick 2" junket, director Chad Stahelski told Slashfilm they were interested in developing a "John Wick" prequel TV series, saying: “We basically almost have a prequel written, but we’d save that for other aspects of the property. Lionsgate is very interested in doing a "John Wick" TV show, and that seems very appealing to us, to give those creative ideas to that entity, because I think in TV you could really expand on what that is, and greater than we could in just a two-hour film.”
  • In case you missed it (you know, if you don’t have cable) “American Crime Story: People v. O.J. Simpson” is now available to stream on Netflix
  • The channel once known as Oxygen is officially rebranding this summer. The new name: Crime Network. With the relaunch, the network will launch two new series -- a reboot of Dick Wolf’s reality investigation show “Cold Justice” and a show called “The Jury Speaks,” which will “examine high-profile cases through the eyes of the jury.”
  • Lifetime is working on a movie based on the Menendez Brothers trial and Courtney Love has been cast to play their mother Kitty.
  • Finally, ahead of its return to TV, Showtime will begin streaming “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me” on March 1.
