TV Quick Hits: ‘Walking Dead’ alum’s new show; ‘Gotham’ previews; ‘Emerald City’ canceled #TheWalkingDead #TWDUpdate
No visit to “Emerald City” – We begin here with the latest news coming out of NBC, which also happens to be rough news for those of you hoping to see the “Wizard of Oz” adaptation otherwise known as “Emerald City”: It is not happening.
According to Deadline, the reason for the show not happening (at least for now) revolves around the fact that the network and the producers at Universal Television could not come together on a vision. The irony here is that this dark version of the classic tale was originally given a straight-to-series order.
Based on reports, it is still very possible that this could be shopped around elsewhere.
Jon Bernthal’s new show – While Jon Bernthal’s first show after “The Walking Dead” did not pan out, there may be a reason to have higher hopes this time.
The actor has signed on to appear in “Show Me a Hero,” a six-hour miniseries from David Simon on HBO all about politics and civil rights despite being generations beyond the revolution of the 1960s. Bernthal would play a Harvard-educated lawyer who worked with the NAACP in a battle against Yonkers, New York, which is the focal point for the project. Winona Ryder, Alfred Molina, and many more are already involved in the project.
“Gotham” previews – Do you have some time to dive deeper into the world of “Gotham”? If so, you are probably going to love all of the new videos that we have for you below. Treat them as a nice way to prepare yourself for the show actually premiering on Fox next month.
