VIZ Media has acquired the rights to release four RWBY anthology manga beginning with Red Like Roses, which centers of Ruby Rose – to be released this summer.
A second anthology, featuring Weiss Schnee, will be released later this year.
Each of the four character-focused anthologies contain more than 15 short stories by different Japanese manga creators. Bonus messages are also included from the voice actors who play the featured characters in the animated series, along with additional notes from RWBY character designer, Ein Lee, and various anthology illustrators.
A Stupid and Futile Gesture is the story of Doug Kenney, the creator of National Lampoon.
The new trailer features Martin Mull – as Modern Doug – noting that the actors playing several key roles don’t look much like the originals – in that dry, slightly nasty manner that Mull has perfected over decades of comedy genius.
A Stupid and Futile Gesture premieres on Netflix on Friday, January 26th.
NBC is setting out to create strong family-friendly viewing on Sundays – beginning with the annual three-hour American Ninja Warrior: USA Vs. the World special on March 11th (7/6C).
Family viewing continues Sunday, March 18 with the second-season premiere of the hit alternative series “Little Big Shots,” hosted by Steve Harvey, and the debut of the Neil Patrick Harris-led gameshow “Genius Junior.” That will be followed by the second season premiere (by popular demand) of “Timeless,” whose 10-episode season will air each week at 10 p.m. Sundays.
Absentia centers on FBI agent Emily Byrne (Katic). While hunting one of Boston’s most notorious serial killers, Agent Byrne disappears without a trace and is declared dead. Six years later, Emily is found in a cabin in the woods, barely alive, and with no memory of the years she was missing. Returning home to learn her husband has remarried and her son is being raised by another woman, she soon finds herself implicated in a new series of murders.
An Amazon Original, Absentia – starring Stan Katic – premieres all ten episodes on Amazon Prime on February 2nd.
