Watch The Trailer For AMC’s Dispatches From Elsewhere

AMC has released the official trailer from Jason Segel’s upcoming original anthology series Dispatches from Elsewhere, created by and starring Segel. 

Starring alongside Segel are Academy and Emmy Award-winner Sally Field, Academy Award-nominee Richard E. Grant, multi-GRAMMY Award-winner André Benjamin and rising star Eve Lindley. Dispatches From Elsewhere will debut with a two-night premiere event on Sunday, March 1 and Monday, March 2 on AMC. 

The ten-hour series is centered around four ordinary people who feel there’s something missing in their lives, but they can’t quite put their finger on what it is. This diverse foursome is brought together by chance – or perhaps it’s by design – when they stumble onto a puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life. As they begin to accept the mysterious ‘Dispatches from Elsewhere’ challenges, they come to find that the mystery winds deeper than they imagined, and their eyes are opened to a world of possibility and magic.

Quentin Tarantino Will Write And Direct All 5 Episodes of Bounty Law Series

Quentin Tarantino is planning a five episode spinoff of fictional TV series Bounty Law, as featured in the Academy Award-nominated Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

“As far as the ‘Bounty Law’ shows, I want to do that, but it will take me a year and a half,” Tarantino said, ”I ended up writing five half-hour episodes. So I’ll do them, and I will direct all of them.”

The fictional series follows Jake Cahill as he wonders the old west looking for bounties to collect. In Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the show marks one of the high points in the career of actor Rick Dalton (played by Leonard DiCaprio) before his gradual descent into mediocrity.

“It got an introduction from ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,’ but I don’t really consider it part of that movie even though it is,” Tarantino said. “This is not about Rick Dalton playing Jake Cahill. It’s about Jake Cahill. Where all this came from was, I ended up watching a bunch of ‘Wanted, Dead or Alive‘, and ‘The Rifleman,’ and ‘Tales of Wells Fargo,’ these half-hour shows to get in the mindset of ‘Bounty Law,’ the kind of show Rick was on. I’d liked them before, but I got really into them. The concept of telling a dramatic story in half an hour. You watch and think, wow, there’s a helluva lot of storytelling going on in 22 minutes. I thought, I wonder if I can do that?”

No official word on Leonardo DiCaprio’s involvement, or Brad Pitt for that matter, though you’d have to assume they’d be game to reprise their role as Rick Dalton and stuntman Cliff Booth, respectively.

Clarice: Silence of The Lambs Sequel Series In The Works At CBS

After more than 28 years since The Silence of the Lambs had its theatrical release in 1991, CBS has officially announced that they have given a series commitment to the award-winning thriller film’s sequel series titled Clarice, which will continue to follow Clarice Starling after the events of author Thomas Harris’ 1988 novel The Silence of the Lambs. The titular character was first portrayed by Jodie Foster, who won her second Academy Award for Best Actress for her memorable performance in the film.

Set in 1993, a year after the events of “The Silence of the Lambs,” Clarice is a deep dive into the untold personal story of FBI Agent Clarice Starling as she returns to the field to pursue serial murderers and sexual predators while navigating the high stakes political world of Washington, D.C.

The original film was directed by Jonathan Demme (Rachel Getting Married) from a screenplay adapted by Ted Tally. Its starred Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins in their iconic roles as Clarice Starling and Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

The series will be written and executive produced by frequent collaborators Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek: Discovery) and Jenny Lumet, who are both also currently working together on CBS All Access’ upcoming series The Man Who Fell to Earth.

“After more than 20 years of silence, we’re privileged to give voice to one of America’s most enduring heroes – Clarice Starling,” Kurtzman and Lumet said in a joint statement. “Clarice’s bravery and complexity have always lit the way, even as her personal story remained in the dark. But hers is the very story we need today: her struggle, her resilience, her victory. Her time is now, and always.”

FX Developing Carrie Limited Series Based On Stephen King’s Novel

FX is in the very early stage of developing a limited series of Stephen King’s classic Carrie.

The novel, King’s legendary debut, centers on Carrie White, a high school teenager picked on by her classmates but with an extraordinary gift: she can move things with her mind. An act of kindness, as spontaneous as the vicious taunts of her classmates, offers Carrie a chance to be normal… Until unexpected cruelty turns her gift into a weapon of horror and destruction that no one will ever forget.

Carrie was previously adapted in 1976 by director Brian De Palma and writer Lawrence D. Cohen. The movie received two Academy Award nominations, including Best Actress in a Leading Role for star Sissy Spacek.

Other adapted versions of the story include 1988’s Broadway show Carrie: The Musical, the 2002 TV movie from David Carson and Bryan Fuller, and the 2013 remake starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore, written by Lawrence D. Cohen and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and directed by Kimberly Pierce.

Carrie joins a list of King titles being adapted for the small and big screen, including Epix’s Jerusalem’s Lot, MGM’s The Dark Half, CBS All Access’ The Stand, and HBO’s The Outsider.
