Purge 4 Locks in Its First Two Leads
Just a few weeks after The Purge 4 title was revealed to be The Island, the first two lead cast members have come aboard for this Purge prequel. Y'lan Noel (Insecure) and Lex Scott Davis (Training Day) are the first actors to officially sign on for the project, although it remains to be seen how many more main characters are still needed for the cast. While it hasn't been confirmed when production will begin, it will certainly have to begin soon, since the prequel is already set to hit theaters next summer.

The Tracking Board first broke the news, although there were no details given about the characters they play. James DeMonaco, who has written and directed all of the Purge movies and is also developing a Purge TV series, revealed in May that this story will take place during the first experimental Purge night, which happened on Staten Island, before this annual tradition went nationwide.

Jerry Bruckheimer Television Plants Flag at CBS Television Studios (Exclusive)

Jerry Bruckheimer Television has landed a new studio home, inking a three-year overall deal with CBS Television Studios.

The pact comes a little more than a year after Bruckheimer TV ended its 15-year run with Warner Bros. Television. At the time, Bruckheimer had decided to pursue talks with investment companies and other players for independent financing that would have allowed him to own a much greater share of his programs that under most studio deals.

It’s understood that Bruckheimer and his TV chief, Jonathan Littman, spent more than a year in discussions with various entities but never found the right fit. In order to remain active in TV development, the company opted to return to a traditional studio overall deal.

  • LRM Online

If you’re unfamiliar with the digital series, here’s the official synopsis:

"When Ethan (Elerding), Sam (McKissack) and James (Nardelli) find themselves the target of cryptic emails from someone posing as their childhood friend Molly (Gonzales), they assume she’s been the victim of an all-too-common hack. After they reach out to alert her, however, they discover that Molly’s been missing for months and no one has any idea what happened to her.As the emails keep coming, each containing a tale written by Molly, her friends realize that this may be more than just a sick joke. Someone has hidden information in the stories, details pulled from real life that point them to people and places from Molly’s past; clues that may lead them to their missing friend."

In addition to the killer premise, each episode consists of a standalone anthology segment woven into its narrative. Today, we have some news involving one of those segements: “Rideshare.”

Thanks to the producers of Dark/Web, we now have the official banner for “Rideshare.” The banner was created by Tim Nardelli, and it gives us just a taste of what we can expect.

Could Carrie Fisher Win a Posthumous Emmy For Her Role on ‘Catastrophe’?

  • Indiewire
Could Carrie Fisher Win a Posthumous Emmy For Her Role on ‘Catastrophe’?
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from Season 3 of “Catastrophe.”]

Before her death in December, Carrie Fisher had already been recognized by the Television Academy via two previous Emmy nominations. But those nods – one in 2008, as a guest actress on “30 Rock,” and the other in 2011 for her special “Wishful Drinking” – ultimately didn’t translate to a win. Now, there’s a really good chance TV Academy voters will be moved to pay tribute to the beloved actress with an overdue posthumous statue.

While she appears on the big screen in the upcoming “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” Fisher made her final TV appearance on the Amazon comedy “Catastrophe,” which recently released its third season. Fisher portrays Mia, the rather obnoxious mother of Rob (Rob Delaney), an American man who moved to London to marry his one-week fling Sharon (Sharon Horgan) after she became pregnant.

TV Deathwatch: ‘Powerless,’ ‘No Tomorrow’ and More Broadcast Shows That Are Now Officially Canceled
Many series that launched during the 2016-2017 season quickly fizzled, but still were holding onto hope.

From shows like Fox’s “Pitch” to the CW’s “Frequency” and “No Tomorrow,” all of which did not receive back-orders for their freshmen seasons, to NBC’s “Powerless,” which was pulled off the network before its final three episodes aired, the writing has been on the wall — but now, network executives are officially pulling the plug.

Other shows that either were yanked off the air or did not receive additional episode orders, include CBS’s “Doubt,” which was pulled after just two episodes,” medical drama “Pure Genius,” plus ABC’s dramas “Notorious” and “Conviction” — those series still await their final fate. Tragically, Bill Paxton’s “Training Day” on CBS was shuffled around the network’s schedule after the actor’s shocking passing.
