nExt (FOX)

This new FOX drama that hits a bit TOO close to home will debut in 2020. Here is the albeit long synopsis of the show:

nexXt is propulsive, fact-based thriller about the emergence of a deadly, rogue artificial intelligence that asks us to look closely not only at our relationship to technology, but to one another. Silicon Valley pioneer Paul LeBlanc (John Slattery, Mad Men) built a fortune and legacy on the world-changing innovations he dreamed up, while ignoring and alienating the people around him, including his own daughter, Abby (Elizabeth Cappucino, Jessica Jones), and his short-sighted younger brother, Ted (Jason Butler Harner, Ozark), who now runs Paul’s company.

After discovering that one of his own creations – a powerful A.I. called neXt – might spell doom for humankind, Paul tried to shutter the project, only to be kicked out of the company by his own brother, leaving him with nothing but mounting dread about the fate of the world.

When a series of unsettling tech mishaps points to a potential worldwide crisis, LeBlanc joins forces with Special Agent Shea Salazar (Fernanda Andrade, The First). Having escaped crime, poverty and a deadly criminal father to remake herself as a force for good, Salazar’s strict moral code and sense of duty have earned her the respect of her team – a talented but contentious group held together by her faith in their ability to defy expectations and transcend their differences, including Gina (Eve Harlow, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), a high-strung cybercrime agent; Ben (Aaron Moten, Mozart in the Jungle), a straight-laced, buttoned-up hard worker, who is boring to the point of being interesting; and CM (Michael Mosley, Seven Seconds), an ex-con hacker with a genius IQ. But the demands of Shea’s challenging job have taken their toll on her home life, where Salazar’s young son, Owen (Evan Whitten, The Resident), has been raised primarily by his father, Ty (Gerardo Celasco, The Haves and the Have Nots), a recovering alcoholic.

Now, LeBlanc and Salazar are the only ones standing in the way of a potential global catastrophe, fighting an emergent super-intelligence that, instead of launching missiles, will deploy the immense knowledge it has gleaned from the data all around us to recruit allies, turn people against each other and eliminate obstacles to its own survival and growth.

Here is a poster for neXt that was part of a giveaway at the con:

Here is a trailer for neXt:

Preacher (AMC)


Here is a trailer for the 4th and final season of Preacher:

Pandora (The CW)


Watch as some of the cast of Pandora talk about the sci-fi series:

Batman: Hush (DC Universe Animated Film)

This direct-to-video animated superhero film based on the comic book story arc of the same name is the 13th installment of the DC animated movie universe that focuses on a mysterious criminal known as Hush (voiced by Geoffrey Arend), determined to destroy both the crime-fighting career and personal life of Batman (voice by Jason O’Mara), which has already been complicated by a relationship with Catwoman (voice by Jennifer Morrison).

Other voice actors include Jerry O’Connell (Superman), Rebecca Romijn (Lois Lane), Maury Sterling (Thomas Elliot), Rainn Wilson (Lex Luthor), Sean Maher (Dick Grayson/Nightwing), Peyton List (Barbara Gordon/Batgirl), Bruce Thomas (James Gordon), Stuart Allan (Damian Wayne/Robin), James Garnett (Alfred), Vanessa Williams (Amanda Waller) and Geoffrey Arend (also as Edward Nygma/The Riddler).

TOMORROW: Day Three – Comic Con 2019

Read Full Post »

Day two of San Diego Comic Con 2019 was jam-packed with LOTS and LOTS of TV show panels and so much more.

Let’s take a look at just some of the TV shows that were on tap today. [There will be more coverage on day two of Comic Con sometime tomorrow.]

Veronica Mars (Hulu)

Hulu has made season 4 available NOW rather than on July 26 as originally planned. You can now binge-watch all 8 episodes. What are you waiting for?!! Seriously, get over to Hulu and watch.

Best of all, our very own Roz dedicated a lot of her day today to the show, getting a chance to pose for quick selfies with some of the cast. Check out her great photos below:

Also, Kristen Bell got to meet Lin-Manuel Miranda – Hamilton himself – for the first time EVER – and it was swoon worthy.

The Walking Dead (AMC)

Entertainment Weekly’s Brave Warriors

On the panel this year were actors John Bradley (Game of Thrones), Cameron Cuffe (Krypton), Michael Emerson (soon to be seen in CBS’s Evil), Aiden Gillen (Project Blue Book and formerly of Game of Thrones), Cress Williams (Black Lightning) and William Zabka (Cobra Kai).


The Witcher (Netflix)

Henry Cavill shared during the panel that he “is a big gamer. I’ve played the games a lot. There was something about Geralt that struck a chord with me.” He also shared that he did his own stunts. “It’s very important for me that you know it’s Geralt and it’s not some guy doing Geralt’s stuff but it’s me in there.”

In fact, he learned how to wield two swords – one silver for monsters and one steel for people. And, there is some speculation that perhaps The Witcher just MIGHT take over the mantel of Game of Thrones.

In short the series is about the witcher, Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, who struggles to find his place in a world where people prove more wicked than beasts.

Here is a trailer for The Witcher:

It should also be noted that there will be TWO more Halloween movies, they will be sequels to the 2018 Halloween movie. It was stated by Blumhouse, “the saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode isn’t over.”

One of my fellow NiceGirls TV staff, Lisa, had the chance to not only meet Orlando Jones (American God and Sleepy Hollow) – you can see the picture below – but she also got to sing with him on the karaoke bus that was winding its way around San Diego during the con. I hope to have video of that soon.

As for Terminator Dark Fate news, James Cameron wasn’t in attendance at the panel, but he livestreamed a message form the set of Avatar and the news dropped that Judgment Day’s Edward Furlong will be in the movie, reprising the role of John Connor. Did anyone see THAT coming?!

As everyone recalls, Linda Hamilton got herself into peek physical condition for Judgment Day, but this time around her preparations were “more internal. The hard work I did was the deep exploration of a woman who’s an outsider whose life hasn’t worked out. I had to go to my deepest sorrows and places of deepest loss, and that’s what makes Sarah Connor, Sarah Connor. (Courtesy i09/Gizmodo)

TOMORROW: Day Two, Comic Con 2019

Read Full Post »

Two of the advanced screeners that aired last night at San Diego Comic Con during Preview Night included FOX’s upcoming psychological drama Prodigal Son and the latest DC Universe series Batwoman.

Here is the synopsis of Prodigal Son:

Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne from The Walking Dead) is a gifted criminal psychologist, using his twisted genius to help the NYPD solve crimes and stop killers, all while dealing with a manipulative mother (Bellamy Young from Scandal), a serial killer father (the one and only Michael Sheen) still looking to bond with his prodigal son and his own constantly evolving neuroses. Bright’s only ally is his sister, Ainsley (Halston Sage from The Orville), a TV journalist who wishes her brother would take a break from murder and have a normal life. Unfortunately for his sister, the only way Bright feels normal is by solving cases with the help of his longtime mentor, NYPD Detective Gil Arroyo (Lou Diamond Phillips). Arroyo’s one of the best detectives around, and he expects no less from his team, which includes Detective JT Tarmel (Frank Harts from The Path), a born-and-bred New Yorker who questions whether Bright is a psychopath himself.

Prodigal Son is set to debut on FOX on September 23, 2019.

Special correspondent NiceGirl Lisa provided us with this review:

I missed the first 15 minutes of The Prodigal Son pilot, but from what I saw it was a strong pilot. Michael Sheen gives an incredible performance in the episode. Lou Diamond Phillips also shines. It gave me Lucifer vibe a little bit, but I think it’s a strong pilot and will be a good show.

Here is a trailer for Prodigal Son:

Here is the synopsis of Batwoman:

Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair, and it’s under the watch of Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and his military-grade Crows Private Security, which now protects the city with omnipresent firepower and militia. When the Alice in Wonderland gang targets the firm, Kane’s daughter Kate (Ruby Rose from Orange Is the New Black) returns home, deciding that if she wants to help her family and her city, she’ll have to become the one thing her father loathes — a dark knight vigilante. With the help of her stepsister Mary and the crafty Luke Fox, the son of Wayne Enterprises’ tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman.

Batwoman will debut on The CW on October 6, 2019

Again, special correspondent NiceGirl Lisa provided us with this review:

Batwoman was really good. I am a huge fan of Ruby Rose, and she did a great job of carrying the pilot as well as stepping into the Batwoman character. It was really interesting to see the background of how she becomes Batwoman, why she becomes Batwoman and those questions are answered in the pilot. I also liked that they touched on homosexual issues because she is a lesbian, and I really liked that they have that aspect on the show. The cast is diverse and great support system for Ruby Rose to shine.

Here is a trailer for Batwoman:
