Columbia Pictures' "Black Cat"

Marvel Comics' "The Amazing Spider-Man" #16, available March 6, 2019, in support of Columbia Pictures' developing 'Black Cat' "Spider-Man" spin-off feature, is written by Nick Spencer and illustrated by Iban Coello, with a cover by Greg Land:

"...in this 'Hunted' tie-in, the luck of 'Black Cat' is on the rise. She came out of the run-in with the 'Thieves Guild' still intact, her bridges with 'Spider-Man' are mostly mended and the world is her oyster. But the job she just took is going to change everything..."

"'Spider-Man' connects to a lot of characters," said Sanford Panitch, President of Columbia Pictures. "There are villains, heroes, and antiheroes, and a lot are female characters, many of whom are bona fide, fully dimensionalized and unique..."

'Black Cat', according to Panitch "...is enough of her own character with a great backstory and a canon of material to draw from,

Europe’s Evolution of Adopting the American Writers’ Room Model

Europe’s Evolution of Adopting the American Writers’ Room Model
Europe hasn’t gone Hollywood quite yet, but it’s getting there, slowly. The standing of the writer within the hierarchy of drama production in Europe has never been higher, but the Hollywood showrunner model, in its purest sense — in which the writer often has the final say in all creative decisions — is still a relative rarity in Europe.

Eight years ago, British exec producer Stephen Garrett, whose credits include “The Night Manager” and is now working on “The Rook” for Starz, persuaded American showrunner Frank Spotnitz to move to Europe and transplant the Hollywood showrunner model in the shape of BBC thriller series “Hunted.” Spotnitz, who brings “Medici: The Magnificent” to Mipcom, recalls one BBC exec telling him British writers were “categorically not capable of collaborating in a [writers’] room.”

Spotnitz proved that exec wrong, but admits that he has adapted the U.S. model to suit European conditions. The

Frank Spotnitz’s Big Light Names Oliver Lang as COO
Frank Spotnitz’s Big Light Productions, whose credits include “Medici: Masters of Florence,” “Ransom” and Emmy winning “The Man in the High Castle,” has named Oliver Lang as chief operating officer. Based at the company’s London headquarters, Lang will oversee its operations, strategic partnerships and financing for drama projects.

Writer-showrunner Spotnitz, who credits include “The X-Files,” “Hunted” and “Strike Back,” founded Big Light five years ago to produce a diverse slate of international television series, and has since become one of Europe’s fastest-growing independent production companies.

As well as Amazon’s “The Man in the High Castle,” now in its fourth season, the company’s projects include “Ransom,” now in its third season for CBS and Global; “Medici: Masters of Florence” and two seasons of “Medici: The Magnificent,” both for Rai and Netflix; and “The Indian Detective” for Netflix.

Broadcast TV’s Most-Watched Debuts Since 2013, From ‘Blindspot’ to ‘Instinct’ (Photos)
As things currently stand, the Top 5 new broadcast series premieres of the 2018-19 TV season belong to “Manifest,” “God Friended Me,” “F.B.I.,” “New Amsterdam” and “Magnum P.I.

Don’t call them “hit shows” quite yet, however — history should make you more conservative with that label.

TheWrap dug up the Top 5 new broadcast TV debuts for each of the past five years. Some of these shows and their Live + Same Day Nielsen numbers may surprise you — as will how quickly many came back down to Earth or completely just went away.

It’s important to note that many of the gaudiest viewer totals here could simply have been boosted by stunt programming — premiering a new series out of NFL football, for example. Another way to goose these stats is to launch a series behind a consistent performer, placing

‘Charlie’s Angels’ Reboot: Meet the Two Rising Actresses Joining Kristen Stewart in Elizabeth Banks’ 2019 Film

‘Charlie’s Angels’ Reboot: Meet the Two Rising Actresses Joining Kristen Stewart in Elizabeth Banks’ 2019 Film
Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska better start practicing their best “Good morning, Charlie.” Elizabeth Banks has cast the three actresses in her upcoming “Charlie’s Angeles” reboot, which will mark the first time the female crime-fighters grace the big screen since “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” in 2013. The film is being touted as a reboot and not a revival, as the new actresses will be playing brand new characters who make up the “next generation of Angels working for the mysterious Charlie.” Banks, who is also a producer and helped write the script, will voice the new Bosley.

Stewart is clearly the most recognizable face of the new Angels, but her involvement is somewhat of a surprise given how resistant Stewart has been to joining major studio tentpoles in recent years. News broke last September that Stewart was circling a role in the film. You’d have to

Review: Electronic Experimentalist Lotic Finds Kinder, Gentler Chaos on ‘Power’

Review: Electronic Experimentalist Lotic Finds Kinder, Gentler Chaos on ‘Power’
Since 2011, Texas-Berlin producer Lotic has been sculpting experimental club music from noise swarms, microscopic samples and mutated bass rumbles, making fans of Björk, Ben Frost and more. 2015’s Ep Heterocetera and short mixtape Agitations created mutating nightmares from, respectively, Penderecki-esque howls of microtonal noise and revving Transformers grind. However, with the release of their first full-length, Lotic opts for a kinder, gentler chaos.

The most notable change – much like recent albums by fellow pixel-pushers Oneohtrix Point Never and Sophie – is a software upgrade towards more traditional songcraft. First single “Hunted” is the highlight,

‘Hunted’ Commissioner Dom Bird Leaves UK Broadcaster Channel 4 After Six Years

Dom Bird, who was responsible for commissioning some of Channel 4’s most recent hits including Hunted and Tattoo Fixers, is set to leave the British broadcaster.

His departure comes after Channel 4 installed former Electric Ray boss Karl Warner as boss of E4.

‘The Night Manager’: ‘Humans’ Namsi Khan & ‘The Rook’s Francesca Gardiner Join Second Season Writer’s Room

‘The Night Manager’: ‘Humans’ Namsi Khan & ‘The Rook’s Francesca Gardiner Join Second Season Writer’s Room
Exclusive: The writers’ room for the secretive second season of The Night Manager is complete and it’s more gender balanced than it first appeared.

I understand that Humans and Black Mirror writer Namsi Khan and The Man In The High Castle writer Francesca Gardiner are joining British spy author Charles Cumming and up-and-coming British writer Matthew Orton in the room for the sophomore run of the BBC and AMC thriller.

Although the show has yet to be officially recommissioned, and there’s plenty of rumors as to what shape it will take and which stars will return, I hear that the foursome are in full swing, working on plots for the “slowly developing” drama.

Khan and Gardiner are both rising writers out of the UK. Khan recently wrote an episode of the third season of AMC and Channel sci-fi drama Humans and was part of the writers’ room for

Paramount Is Planning 2 Very Different Star Trek Movies

Paramount Is Planning 2 Very Different Star Trek Movies
Not one, but two new Star Trek movies are being developed by Paramount. We've known for a bit now that the studio was working on at least a couple of different new Trek related projects, but now Paramount head Jim Gianopulos has confirmed that two different movies in the franchise are in active development, news that was announced during CinemaCon in Las Vegas this past week. Unfortunately, he didn't dish any additional details, but this makes for an interesting confirmation, considering what we already know.

Starting with the more recent development, it came to light in December that Quentin Tarantino is working on a Star Trek Movie with J.J. Abrams. The Pulp Fiction director pitched the idea to Abrams and the duo then took it to Paramount. The studio then assembled a writer's room to flesh out the idea and, ultimately, Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) was hired to pen

Star Trek 4 Makes Franchise History with First Female Director

Star Trek 4 Makes Franchise History with First Female Director
S.J. Clarkson is about to boldly go where no female director has ever gone before, to take the helm of a Star Trek movie. Paramount Pictures announced during their CinemaCon panel today that they are currently developing two separate Star Trek movies, one of which is being developed by Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams, but sources say that project is still being written and would come after Star Trek 4, which S.J. Clarkson has signed on to direct. Star Trek 4 had been in the works for nearly two years, but after Tarantino's Star Trek project got some steam, it wasn't clear if Star Trek 4 would happen, until today, with S.J. Clarkson becoming the first ever female director to take the helm of a Star Trek movie.

Star Trek 4 was first revealed in July 2016, just days before the release of Star Trek Beyond. There were rumors that Chris Hemsworth would

Ratings: The Resident Has Healthy Start Leading Out of Nfc Championship

The Resident was looking expectedly flush — if not preternaturally robust — leading out of Fox’s broadcast of the Nfc Championship game on Sunday evening.

RELATEDFox’s The Resident Premiere: Grade It!

Kicking off just a few minutes later than its estimated 10/9c start time, the freshman medical drama drew 8.8 million total viewers and a 2.7 demo rating in fast nationals, down sharply both from what CBSHunted did in the plum time slot a year ago (10.8 mil/3.6 in prelims, leading out of the Afc Championship) and what Fox’s own The X-Files drew two years ago (13.5 mil/5.1, post-nfc Championship).

Thursday’s best TV: A House Through Time; Derry Girls

  • The Guardian - TV News
David Olusoga traces changes in Britain by focusing on one house in Liverpool; debut of promising schooldays sitcom set in early 90s Northern Ireland. Plus: the return of Hunted

In a series that rests on an elegantly simple idea, David Olusoga looks at how Britain has changed by focusing on one house in Liverpool, and telling the stories of its various residents down the years. The first of four episodes charts life in the 1840s and 1850s, and we meet a profligate customs clerk, a couple of social climbers who started out as servants and, in a tale where slavery is central to the narrative, a cotton broker.
