The Passionflix film Gabriel’s Inferno will debut online on May 29. Gabriel Emerson (Giulio Berruti) is a brilliant and enigmatic professor of Dante studies at the University of Toronto. His cold, aloof exterior masks dark secrets he successfully hides, though he has never overcome them. A lovely, intelligent graduate student in his seminar triggers a dim memory – one he cannot place, but which is key to the happiness he long thought was impossible. Julianne Mitchell (Melanie Zanetti) is a compassionate, kind young woman still struggling to overcome a childhood of neglect and abuse. When she enrolls at the University of Toronto, she knows she will see someone from her past – a man she met once, in an encounter she has never forgotten. Gabriel cannot recall what Julia knows: that they have a shared history rooted in an important moment of their lives. The story unfolds around the electrifying connection between Gabriel and Julia and their increasingly passionate affair. Gabriel sees her unconditional love as his path to salvation even as he acknowledges his selfishness in doing so. Julia struggles with her own self-worth as she grows to trust Gabriel’s feelings for her. Determined to capture the happiness that eluded them when they parted years ago, they must defy their own painful pasts as well as obstacles which now conspire to keep them apart.

On May 31, the UPtv movie Groomzilla will debut at 7 PM. A newly engaged woman makes a wish that her fiancé take the planning of their wedding seriously, and to her surprise and dismay, her wish comes true. The film stars Darin Brooks, Elizabeth Rice, DeVaughn Nixon and Mark Derwin.

Killing Eve will air its season finale on both BBC America and AMC on May 31 at 9 PM followed that same night (on AMC) by the 3-part mini-series Quiz will debut at 10 PM. The mini-series tells the extraordinary and sensational story of how Charles and Diana Ingram (Matthew Macfadyen and Sian Clifford) attempted an ‘audacious heist’ on the U.K. quiz show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

Hey All,

Here are all the news items for the past week:


The 2012 NBC TV series Smash, about the backstage drama of putting together a new Broadway show, about the life of Marilyn Monroe, looks to be heading to the Great White Way. Smash, A New Musical will include the following heavyweights behind the scenes: Steven Spielberg, Robert Greenblatt, Neil Meron, Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman – all of who were involved in the original series production. (Variety)


Series star Ruby Rose has decided to leave the CW series Batwoman (she plays the lead) ahead of its sophomore run. According to the network, the role will be recast. (TV Line)


ABC has renewed the following dramas: A Million Little Things, The Rookie and Stumptown. The network had already given renewals to Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19 and The Good Doctor. The fates of the new dramas For Life and The Baker and the Beauty are to be determined at a later date.

The network picked up on drama for the fall TV season:

Big Sky from storyteller David E. Kelley. The thriller is about private detectives Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury from Pitch) and Cody Hoyt (Ryan Phillippe from The Shooter) who join forces with his estranged wife and ex-cop, Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick from Vikings), to search for two sisters who have been kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote highway in Montana. But when they discover that these are not the only girls who have disappeared in the area, they must race against the clock to stop the killer before another woman is taken.  (Variety)

CBS announced its fall 2020 line-up with much of its primetime schedule intact, including one new drama. The dramas will air as follows:

Mondays: All Rise and Bull
Tuesdays: NCIS, FBI and FBI: Most Wanted
Wednesdays: SEAL Team
Thursdays: Evil
Fridays: MacGyver, Magnum P.I. and Blue Bloods
Sundays: The Equalizer (NEW), NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: New Orleans

The Equalizer is a reimagining of the classic series Queen Latifah as Robyn McCall, an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background who uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn. She presents to most as an average single mom who is quietly raising her teenage daughter. But to a trusted few, she is The Equalizer – an anonymous guardian angel and defender of the downtrodden, who’s also dogged in her pursuit of personal redemption.

S.W.A.T. will return to CBS in the mid-season along with the new drama Clarice.

Clarice will star Rebecca Breeds (Pretty Little Liars and the Australian soap opera Home and Away) as the title character. The series is a deep dive into the untold personal story of FBI Agent Clarice Starling as she returns to the field in 1993, six months after the events of The Silence of the Lambs. (TV Line and Deadline)


Actor Esai Morales will replace Nicholas Hoult as the villain in the upcoming Tom Cruise “Mission: Impossible 7. Hoult had to leave due to scheduling issues. It’s unclear when the film will resume production as are details about the film. What is known, however, is that Ving Rhames, Henry Czerny, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, and Vanessa Kirby are all returning with Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff and Shea Whigham joining the cast. (Variety)

Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage and Jason Momoa are set to star in the action adventure film Good Bad and Undead. Dinklage will play Van Helsing, last in a long line of vampire hunters. He develops an uneasy partnership with a vampire (Momoa) who has taken a vow never to kill again. Together they run a scam from town to town, where Van Helsing pretends to vanquish the vampire for money. But when a massive bounty is put on the vampire’s head, everything in this dangerous world full of monsters and magic is now after them. (Deadline)


FOX has renewed Prodigal Son for a second season; and the network has also given a fourth season renewal to The Resident. (TV Line and Variety)

Freeform has renewed Motherland: Fort Salem for a second season and announced that the new drama Cruel Summer (formerly Last Summer) will debut in 2021. Actress Olivia Holt (from Freeform’s defunct Cloak & Dagger) will star in the show that takes place over three summers in the ’90s when a beautiful and popular teen goes missing, and a seemingly unrelated girl transforms from a sweet and awkward outlier to the most popular girl in town, eventually becoming the most despised person in America. (Variety)


Apple TV+ will debut the Tom Hanks box office movie Greyhound on the small screen instead, but an official airdate has yet to be announced. The film is set in the early days of World War II as an international convoy of 37 Allied ships, led by Capt. Ernest Krause (Hanks), crosses the treacherous North Atlantic while being hotly pursued by wolf packs of Nazi submarines. (Variety)

That’s it. Enjoy!
