  • 16:29 - The Night Manager - David Harewood, Neil Morrissey, Katherine Kelly and Tobias Menzies join cast

    Acclaimed Actors Join Hugh Laurie, Tom Hiddleston and Olivia Colman in

    AMC’s Co-Production with BBC One and The Ink Factory

    NEW YORK / LONDON – April 16, 2015: Highly acclaimed British actors David Harewood (“Homeland”), Neil Morrissey (“Line of Duty”), Katherine Kelly (“Mr Selfridge”) and Tobias Menzies (“The Honorable Woman”) have been announced to join the star-studded cast of the television adaptation of John le Carré’s novel The Night Manager, which started filming last month.

    Co-produced by AMC with BBC One and The Ink Factory, the latest names to feature in the international production join previously announced stars Hugh Laurie (“House”), Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers), Olivia Colman (“Broadchurch”), Tom Hollander (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby) and Academy Award®-winning director Susanne Bier (In a Better World).

    Harewood is most well-known for his role in Golden Globe® and Emmy Award®-winning drama “Homeland,” whilst Morrissey was recently featured in BAFTA-nominated drama “Line of Duty.” Kelly starred in two series of Emmy®-nominated British drama “Mr Selfridge,” and Menzies has made a name for himself in Golden Globe®-winning drama “The Honorable Woman” and Emmy® Award-winning series “Game of Thrones.”

    Other names announced to appear in the espionage drama include BAFTA nominees Adeel Akhtar (“Utopia”) and Natasha Little (“Wolf Hall”), as well as Jonathan Aris (“Sherlock”) and Hannah Steele (“Wolf Hall”).

    A contemporary interpretation of le Carré’s 1993 novel – and the first television adaptation of a le Carré novel in more than 20 years – “The Night Manager” mini-series will bring together love, loss and revenge in a complex story of modern criminality. The eagerly anticipated series follows former British soldier Jonathan Pine (Hiddleston) who is recruited by an intelligence operative named Burr (Colman) to navigate the shadowy recesses of Whitehall and Washington where an unholy alliance operates between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade. To infiltrate the inner circle of lethal arms dealer Richard Onslow Roper (Laurie), which includes girlfriend Jed (Debicki) and an associate named Corcoran (Hollander), Pine must himself become a criminal.

    The Night Manager is one of le Carré’s most beloved and critically acclaimed books. A fusion of spy story and tale of organized crime, the novel was a best-seller in the United States and the UK, translated into over 20 languages and selling over a million copies in North America alone.

    “The Night Manager” will be produced by The Ink Factory (A Most Wanted Man), BBC One and AMC for broadcast in 2016. Executive producers are Stephen Cornwell and Simon Cornwell for The Ink Factory, Stephen Garrett, David Farr, and Polly Hill for the BBC. The series was commissioned for BBC One by Charlotte Moore and Ben Stephenson, and Joel Stillerman and Kristin Jones for AMC. “The Night Manager” is adapted by David Farr (Hanna, “Spooks”). Rob Bullock (“The Suspicions of Mr Whicher,” “Chasing Shadows”) will produce for The Ink Factor

    BBC's world-renowned science-fiction drama "Doctor Who" will premiere on Disney XD beginning SATURDAY, MAY 9 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT). Disney XD, home to other top-rated action-adventure programming, including Lucasfilm's "Star Wars Rebels" and Marvel Television's animated series, has picked up seasons two through four of the global sci-fi hit. The landmark series depicts the adventures of the Doctor, a time lord who travels through space and time in his TARDIS, combatting various enemies to save civilizations around the globe.

    On Saturday, May 9, Disney XD will feature a preview airing of "Doctor Who" (season two, episode one - "New Earth"), following the Disney XD premiere of "Fantastic Four" (6:45 p.m., ET/PT). In "New Earth," the Doctor and Rose board the TARDIS for new adventures in time and space. But when they visit mankind's new home, far in the future, they find gruesome secrets hidden inside a luxury hospital. And an enemy thought long since dead, the paper-thin Cassandra, is out for revenge.

    Season Two, "Adventures in time and space," will continue to rollout on Disney XD beginning Saturday, June 13.

Following the phenomenal success of the first season of the re-launched version that took British television by storm in 2005, the second installment is full of new thrills, new laughs, new heartbreak and some terrifying new monsters. Together, the Doctor and Rose (played by Billie Piper) travel back in time to the Highlands of Scotland to find Queen Victoria confronted by a terrifying Werewolf, and into the future where an evil team of humanoid-feline nuns hide a sinister secret at the heart of their hospital. A spaceship in the future holds a doorway to 18th Century France, where lethal Clockwork Droids stalk Versailles, and back on 21st-century Earth the human race is threatened by an army of emotionless Cybermen. The second installment was produced by BBC in association with CBC.

  • 13:18 - Adina Porter Cast In WGN America’s ‘Underground’
    Adina Porter (True Blood) has landed a recurring role on Underground, WGN America’s pre-Civil War straight-to-series drama about the Underground Railroad. The series from Sony Pictures TV and Tribune Studios follows a group of slaves who plan a daring escape from a Georgia plantation to cross 600 miles to freedom. They are aided along the way by a secret abolitionist couple running a station on the Underground Railroad, as they evade those tasked with bringing them back — dead or alive.

    Porter will play Pearly Mae, a strong wife and mother who first gives voice to the song in which the runners will find clues to help guide them to freedom. Porter, repped by TalentWorks and Bamboo Management, played Lettie Mae Thornton on HBO’s True Blood for seven seasons. She also recurred on The 100 and The Newsroom, and other recent TV credits include The Vampire Diaries, Glee and Grey’s Anatomy.


  • 13:14 - MOVIES: Wonder Woman - Patty Jenkins to Direct Movie
    That was quick. The invisible plane already has a new pilot, as sources have confirmed to Deadline that Monster director Patty Jenkins has been tapped to for Warner Bros’ high-profile Wonder Woman pic. The news comes just two days after helmer Michelle MacLaren exited the project over what the studio called “creative differences.”

    Her hiring here helps put to rest an unpleasant spin on recent events. In the wake of MacLaren’s exit from Wonder Woman, speculation online was that sexism might have played a role in the matter. There’s no confirmation of that, but making sure a female director brings DC’s Amazonian warrior to life quells such talk before it becomes conventional wisdom. Hiring Jenkins this quickly also ensures the production will stay on schedule.

    In addition Monster, which helped earn Charlize Theron her Oscar, Jenkins has had a prolific career on television, directing episodes of Entourage, Arrested Development, The Killing, as well as the pilot for the short-lived ABC series Betrayal. CAA, Anonymous Content and Jackoway Tyerman represent her.

  • 08:31 - The Good Wife - Season 7 - Cush Jumbo to Recur
    EXCLUSIVE: It’s an extraordinary time for Cush Jumbo, the London-based actress who starred on Broadway earlier this season with Hugh Jackman in Jez Butterworth’s spooky curiosity The River. She’s just concluded a sold-out, critically raved run of her solo show Josephine And I at the Public Theater’s Joe’s Pub and now is back in London to begin filming City Of Tiny Lights for director Pete Travis.

    She won’t be gone long. I’m told she’s been tapped for a role on Robert King and Michelle King’s The Good Wife, beginning with next fall’s Season 7 opener of the Julianna Margulies-starring dramatic series, which films in New York for CBS. This will mark Jumbo’s American TV debut, though she’s already familiar to UK audiences playing opposite Brenda Blethyn in the ITV Studios detective series Vera. She also was seen on the big screen opposite Tom Sturridge in Remainder.

    Details about the character aren’t available yet, but I’m told it’s a recurring role. Billing is still being worked out. The series has still not officially been renewed at the network, though it is expected to be.
