Life in the ‘blurbs
Today Netflix gets Happy, SHIELD gets Muad’Dib, Black Box gets the axe, and more:
- ABC cancelled Black Box, a plane crash investigation drama—what? It was about a “sex-crazed bipolar genius neurologist?” Huh. Sounds relatable. (Dibs on the plane crash investigators concept.)
- Who would win a fight between Paul Muad’Dib Atreides and Xena Warrior Princess? Maybe we’ll get to find out in Season 2 of Agents of SHIELD now that Kyle MacLachlan has signed on as villain opposite new hero Lucy Lawless.
- Traditionally, small budgets force some TV series to shoot overseas. Now, says Variety, it’s big budgets that are allowing TV series to shoot overseas.
- Will Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story TV movie be more interesting than its title? This sneak preview clip isn’t.
- Lifetime is also putting together a Marilyn Monroe mini-series. I hear this time she lives.
- Girl Meets World exists, will continue to do so a while longer.
