Preview: watch the first two minutes of JJ Abrams & Alfonso Cuaron’s Believe.
Believe premieres Monday, March 10 after The Voice.
(That’s a pretty excellent two minutes. Classic Cuaron with the long shot - even though I’m pretty sure it actually cuts a few times. It still looks great.)
Hit French series The Returned (Les Revenants) is getting an American remake. A&E Network has nabbed rights to the supernatural/suspense drama, which will be developed as a co-production between A+E Studios and FremantleMedia North America. There is no writer in place but I hear the network is in discussions with Carlton Cuse, executive producer/co-showrunner of A&E’s breakout hit Bates Motel to take on the adaptation.
This news is a few months old, but I recently watched the series (it’s now streaming on Netflix!) and wrote a review of it, which you can read here.
I highly, highly recommend it.
Though I haven’t seen ABC’s Resurrection (which premieres Sunday night) these two shows are based on the same idea and look very familiar. I’ll check out Resurrection, but I think it will be extremely hard for that show to be better than The Returned.
Constantine centers on John Constantine (Matt Ryan), an enigmatic and irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective who is thrust into the role of defending us against dark forces from beyond. When Liv (Griffiths), the daughter of a late friend, is targeted by demons, Constantine steps in to save her. Griffiths’ Liv is an offbeat young woman tired of her ordinary life who comes to discover that she has the ability of seeing the supernatural world among us, which makes her a key player in the battle between good and evil. Liv teams up with Constantine to save lives, master her power, and learn more about her late father. Perrineau will play Manny, an authoritative angel assigned to watch over Constantine who has the power to step into other people’s bodies, and although he is meant only to observe, Manny will not hesitate to help out if he can save a life.
A naughty magazine (prop) has made its way from the island to White Pine Bay.
Top: LOST. Sawyer had this magazine in his stash.
Bottom: Bates Motel, season 1 episode 3. Norman finds this in Officer Shelby’s dresser when trying to look for Keith Summers’ belt.
LOST star Nestor Carbonell is set to make a guest appearance on Person of Interest, his former costar Michael Emerson’s hit CBS drama, E! News has exclusive learned. Looks like they stayed friends off the island!
Carbonell, who currently stars on A&E’s Bates Motel, will play Matthew Reed, the POI of the week in the April 1 episode. According to the show’s producers, Reed “is a tough, but charismatic criminal prosecutor, who’s haunted by a dark secret from his past.” (x)
