Out of everything WarnerMedia could have called their new service, HBOMax seems pretty lame to me. I would have preferred something like WBMax, WBDemand, I don’t know, but HBOMax? We already have HBOGo, HBO Now, and DC Universe. According to someone I spoke with at Warner Brothers, DC Universe is staying put. But HBOMax is going to launch next Spring with over 10,000 Hours of content including Friends, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, a Robust Slate of New Originals, and Programming from Warner Bros., New Line, DC Entertainment, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, The CW, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Looney Tunes and More at a rumored price of $16 or $17.
Apple TV+ upcoming drama series “Truth Be Told” became the first TV series to ever be celebrated at the 2019 Taormina Film Festival in Sicily, Italy, this weekend.

Creator, Writer and Executive Producer, Nichelle Tramble Spellman was also on-hand to present the series.
As much as I hate all these streaming services, we’re getting a lot of awesome product to watch! Warner Media has announced one of their first shows for their new upcoming service and its, wait for it – Gremlins! How will this even work as a series? Part of me is disappointed that it’s going to be an animated prequel series that’s going to take place before the first film. I’ve made my hatred of prequels plain. But I am curious to see what the art style will be and who will be involved. Full press release after the jump.
Today, it’s not unusual for a TV show to depict a less-than-ideal future. This is especially true for Black Mirror, the show that debuted in 2011 on the UK’s Channel 4 but moved overseas later. I don’t speak for anyone but I sure wouldn’t like some of the Black Mirror episodes become reality anytime soon. Back in the day, TV series tended to be a bit more optimistic than the ones today yet there were still quite a few that depicted visions of the future that were quite disturbing and pressing – like the ones we’ll take a look at today.
The best TV movies seem to happen by accident. It is sad to see soulless TV movies that simply exist to spend up to an allocated budget. Some of the best TV movies have had such an impact that not only did they achieve cult status, but they also cemented a brand that still lives to this day.
