With ‘NOS4A2,’ Joe Hill Finally Sinks His Teeth Into TV

The AMC horror series NOS4A2 is one of several adaptations the best-selling horror author Joe Hill has in the works, after multiple stalled attempts.

In this New York Times interview the author discusses vampirism; feminism; supernaturalism; sadism; his father, the best-selling novelist Stephen King; and his own best-selling novel NOS4A2.

NOS4A2 is both the first of Hill’s stories to make it to the small screen and one of several TV projects he now has in the works, a dramatic reversal of fortune after multiple stalled attempts. Misfires included a reboot of George A. Romero’s horror series “Tales From the Darkside,” which never made it past the pilot stage after Hill wrote several scripts, and two adaptations of “Locke & Key,” a comic Hill did with the artist Gabriel Rodríguez. Separate pilots were produced for each — first for Fox, then for Hulu — but both were dropped.

Then suddenly, abundance: In addition to “NOS4A2,” “Locke & Key” was finally picked up for a Netflix series, which is expected to debut by early next year. A Netflix film based on “In the Tall Grass,” a short story Hill wrote with his father, is expected this fall.

And in a development that completes a personal circle for Hill, the streaming service Shudder is in postproduction on an adaptation of his 2014 short story “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain” for its anthology series “Creepshow,” a reboot of the 1982 movie written by King — which also starred Hill as a little boy.

IKEA Recreates The Living Rooms From The Simpsons, Stranger Things & Friends

You definitely know the rooms, but how well do you know the furnishings?

A new ad campaign from IKEA in the United Arab Emirates has some fun with three of television’s most iconic living rooms by recreating each one solely with IKEA furniture and decorations—plus some help from 3-D design software.

Created by Publicis Spain, the “IKEA Real Life” campaign took two months to track down all the right pieces that are currently on sale from Ikea. They were then compiled and designed via 3-D software to look as close as possible to the memorable living rooms from The Simpsons, Friends and Stranger Things.

On a microsite for the campaign, you can see each room and learn more about the furnishings featured in the ads.

Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for The Dark Crystal: The Age of Resistance, the upcoming prequel series featuring the groundbreaking puppeteering of The Jim Henson Company, who created the all-puppet cast of the original film. 

The Age of Resistance takes place before the events in 1982’s The Dark Crystal, and tells a new epic story, set many years before the movie, and realized using classic puppetry with cutting-edge visual effects. The world of Thra is dying. The Crystal of Truth is at the heart of Thra, a source of untold power. But it is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis, and a sickness spreads across the land.

The show’s executive producers are Leterrier, Halle Stanford, and Jim Henson’s daughter, Lisa Henson.

Feature film director Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me, The Incredible Hulk) will executive produce the series as well as direct. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will be a Netflix original series produced by The Jim Henson Company and executive produced by Letterier, Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford. Longtime Henson collaborator Rita Peruggi will serve as producer and Henson’s Blanca Lista will serve as a co-executive producer. Leading the writing are co-executive producers Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews (Life in a Year), and Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost, The 100).

Kaley Cuoco Teases A Fall Release Date For Harley Quinn

Earlier this month, Kaley Cuoco wrapped up her 12-season run on The Big Bang Theory. Now, Cuoco is gearing up for the premiere of her next show, DC Universe’s Harley Quinn animated series. In a recent Instagram post, Cuoco shared a new teaser image that confirms the show’s fall premiere date.

If you look closely, you’ll see the phrase “Fall 2019” scrawled in blood on Harley’s arm. The image also appears to assure viewers that the new series will be tonally similar to DC Universe’s live-action offerings. In other words, the animated format won’t hold back on depictions on violence.

Joining Cuoco on Harley Quinn are the voices of Lake Bell (Poison Ivy), Alan Tudyk (Joker), and Diedrich Bader (Batman). The series will also feature Wanda Sykes, Jason Alexander, Giancarlo Esposito, and Jim Rash. Unfortunately, their roles haven’t been announced yet.

Watch The First Full-Length Swamp Thing Trailer

DC Universe has dropped the first full-length trailer for their latest original series, Swamp Thing. 

The live-action series, based on the character originally created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, will be executive produced by Len Wiseman (Sleepy Hollow) who will also direct the pilot. Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica, Netflix’s Daredevil) and Gary Dauberman (It) will co-write the series and act as showrunners, with James Wan (Aquaman) set to executive-produce the series alongside Verheiden, Dauberman, and Michael Clear.

The series will star Andy Bean as Alec Holland, Will Patton as Avery Sutherland Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane, Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne, Jeryl Prescott as Madame Xanadu, Jennifer Beals as Sheriff Lucilia Cable, Virginia Madsen as Maria Sunderland, Henderson Wade as Matt Cable, Kevin Durand as Jason Woodtrue/Floronic Man and Leonardo Nam (Westworld) as Harlan Edwards. Committing to the lead role of the titular monster is The Flash‘s Derek Mears.

Swamp Thing made his comic book debut back in 1971 and has maintained his position as a staple of the DCU since then, including seminal runs written by Alan Moore, Brian K. Vaughan, Mark Millar, and Scott Snyder. The character was previously adapted into a feature film from Wes Craven in 1982, which spawned a sequel seven years later, and a USA Network series that ran for three seasons in the early ’90s. Dick Durock took on the role in both the films and the series. An animated series also debuted in the early ’90s but only aired five episodes.

Swamp Thing premieres on DC Universe on May 31.
