HBO Preps Docuseries on NXIVM, Self-Help Group Tied To Sex-Trafficking Case
It sounded like a screenplay the moment the feds unsealed the indictments, and now HBO Documentary Films is producing a docuseries exploring the NXIVM organization. That’s the name of the ersatz self-improvement group with which Smallville alumna Allison Mack was involved. She recently pleaded guilty to racketeering charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy in the case.

Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated driectors Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer are helming the untitled series, which will follow a range of people who joined the group. NXIVM has been under siege, with serious federal charges brought against its highest members including founder Keith Raniere. The program will take a deep, nuanced look at experiences of its members, spotlighting their universal desire for personal growth, HBO said.

Noujaim’s interest in the subject began in 2010 when she took NXIVM's introductory “Executive Success Program” workshop.

"Sharp Objects" (probably) won’t have a Season 2 after all

Don’t tell mama, but a second season of “Sharp Objects” is very much looking unlikely now.

Last month at SXSW, showrunner Marti Noxon shared that she and Gillian Flynn, author of the book on which the limited series is based, were having conversations about possibly continuing the Amy Adams-led hit, a la “Big Little Lies.” But Casey Bloys, HBO’s president of programming, tells our sister site Deadline that he doubts there will be a follow-up season to the current Best Limited Series Emmy contender.

“They haven’t come to us with anything, and my suspicion is one season was right for that show,” Bloys said. “I can’t imagine getting everybody back. The hard thing about these things that are one season is trying to get everybody back together, but also, it feels like the one season was the right thing for that show. It was the right ending,

‘Star Trek: Discovery’: Season 2’s Game-Changing Twist Sets Up a Crazy Fresh Plan for Season 3
[Editor’s note: The following article contains spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 2 Episode 14, “Such Sweet Sorry, Part 2.”]

From the frantic assembly of Burnham’s (Sonequa Martin-Green) time suit, to the epic space battle between the Enterprise, Discovery, and Control’s ships, to the impressive hand-to-hand, gravity-challenged fight between Control, Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh), and security officer Commander Nhan (Rachael Ancheril), there’s plenty of excitement packed into the episode, all topped off by “Discovery

WGA: 92 Percent of Writers Who Signed Statement of Support Have Fired Agents

The Writers Guild of America estimated that over 92 percent of their members who support a new code of conduct for talent agencies have fired those representatives.

Letters announcing formal termination will be delivered on Monday, the guild said in a late-hitting memo on Thursday, as most agencies will be closed tomorrow in observance of Good Friday. Many writers are believed to have personally communicated their intentions to step away from agents until they resolve their beef with the WGA, which declared war with the Association of Talent Agencies last week over packaging fees.
