"Castle Rock" Season 2 to Pay Homage to ‘Misery’ with Lizzy Caplan as Annie Wilkes

Season 1 of Hulu's Castle Rock was a treasure trove of homages, Easter eggs, and story crossovers for fans of horror icon Stephen King. Season 2 looks to continue that trend by taking on Misery, King's 1987 psychological horror novel that centered on nurse Annie Wilkes and her deadly obsession with romance novelist, Paul Sheldon. Kathy Bates earned an Oscar for her performance as Wilkes in Rob Reiner's 1990 feature adaptation of the story, but now Emmy-nominee Lizzy Caplan gets a shot at the role.

With More Black Stars on TV Than Ever, Where Do Bet, Own, and Other Black Networks Fit In?

African Americans love TV. According to Nielsen, it’s a demographic that watches 37 percent more television than any other. And the TV industry has taken note: Of the nearly 500 scripted series across broadcast, cable, and streaming, at least 60 are headlined by black actors. However, most of them don’t appear on Bet, Own: The Oprah Winfrey Network, Bounce TV, or TV One: 70 percent of the black-headlined shows run on other networks and streamers. All of which begs the question: As networks with significantly deeper pockets aggressively pursue the African-American audience, do black TV networks risk losing relevance?

Bet head of programming Connie Orlando isn’t concerned by the competition. “Across TV, Svod, and film, Hollywood is waking up to the excellence of black creators and the power of black audiences, something we have done for the past 40 years,” she said. “African Americans are not monolithic.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Now Apocalypse

Some shows just swing for the fences and see what will come of it in terms of what they put forth, and Now Apocalypse seems to be one of those. There might be more to this than is initially thought since let’s be honest, sex and more sex followed by a side of sex with another helping of sex and glazed over with drug use is something that a lot of people would easily get distracted by. But if there is something else there it does seem to be slathered in sex, drugs, and easy living that is designed to
