Black Mirror - Season 5 - Miley Cyrus to Star in Episode of Netflix Anthology

The singer-actress said that she'd been away from home during the blaze, filming in South Africa, which led to a confirmation of recent reports that she will appear in the upcoming season of Netflix's dystopian future drama series Black Mirror.

"I'm really actually excited for everyone to watch the 'headshaking project' we said yes to [before]," she said cryptically. "The minute I say I never want to do something again, all of a sudden, there I am."

Cyrus said she's been hunkering down working on her next album — due out next year — and because she always "hates everything" she does in retrospect, the return to acting on Black Mirror was a revelation. "I hate everything, but it was the first time I've left somewhere feeling really proud of my work," she said.

She couldn't say much, but promised that she plays a dynamic role that has a "lot of different sides" to the character.

In this comedic action-adventure, a live-action transformation of the original series, newcomer Sadie Stanley stars as the iconic teen hero Kim Possible along with Sean Giambrone (ABC's "The Goldbergs") as her best friend and sidekick, Ron Stoppable. Immediately following "Kim Possible," Disney Channel will present a first look at the new eight-part miniseries "Fast Layne," with an episode titled "Mile 1: the Voice in the Shed."

"Kim Possible" begins as Kim and her best friend and sidekick, Ron Stoppable, start Middleton High School where Kim must navigate an intimidating new social hierarchy. She is ready to tackle the challenge head-on, just as she has with everything else in life, but her confidence is shaken when she faces roadblocks at every turn - getting lost in the confusing hallways, being late to class and facing rejection during soccer tryouts from her frenemy, Bonnie. Kim's day starts to turn around when she and Ron meet and befriend Athena, a new classmate and Kim Possible superfan who is having an even worse day than Kim. With Kim's guidance and friendship, Athena transforms into the newest member of Team Possible. Soon, Athena starts to eclipse Kim just as the nefarious Drakken and Shego resurface in Middleton with a master plan to finally stop Kim.

Deadtown - Female Empowerment Superhero Drama in Development at Amazon

EXCLUSIVE: Amazon Studios has stepped up for Deadtown, an Entertainment One and Grey Matter Entertainment script that will be developed for a pilot by Shauna Cross. Deadtown is an adaptation of the Catherynne M. Valente novella The Refrigerator Monologues and the hourlong premise is a blueprint to create an original superhero universe set in the modern era with an underlying theme of female empowerment.

Five recently-dead women meet in Deadtown, a purgatory where they discover that their entire lives were merely in service to the superhero men they happened to cross paths with, resulting in each of their deaths. Or in comic book terms, they were “refrigerated”–frozen out of the story once they provided emotional backstory for the men. Until now. They start to discover their own powers, tell their sides of the narrative, and decide to write their own damn stories. And a group of seemingly ordinary women discover their own true power. It’s a subversive, kick-ass exploration of what it means for women to find their inner power – and use it.
