CBS All Access has released a trailer for season two of Star Trek: Discovery and it is hewing closely to the events of the original series’ first pilot – at least in terms of how the character of Mr. Spock is concerned.
With danger facing the galaxy, Spock is… smiling? Also, Captain Georgiou returns…
Season two of Star Trek: Discovery premieres on CBS All Access on January 17th.
We met with Ethan Peck, who plays Patrick on ABC Family’s 10 Things I Hate About You at 25 Degrees restaurant at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.The grandson of Gregory Peck, Ethan took time out on his day off from filming to have breakfast with us and give us the scoop on filming, his time in school at NYU, and his inspirations.
Yeah, that was ’99, right?And I definitely saw it when I was, I guess, 13, 14-years old.When I got the audition, I hadn’t even recalled the film at the time.They were [mentioning it was a remake], and I couldn’t quite remember what it was, but it’s a great movie.And it’s really exciting to be working under that franchise.
Over the years, there have been countless reimaginings of Shakespearean plays.With stories being retold in every possible setting and time period, Baz Luhrman popularized the concept for a young adult audience with his 1996’s Romeo + Juliet, complete with guns instead of swords and a Miami-esque setting in place of familiar fair Verona.In 1999, Gil Junger’s 10 Things I Hate About You took the same idea a step further, bringing Shakespeare to an even younger audience: high schoolers.Largely remembered as the late Heath Ledger’s breakthrough performance and with characters that were simultaneously relatable and iconic teen movie stereotypes, 10 Things I Hate About You became an instant classic for Generation Y.
Now, ten years later, ABC Family has resurrected the film with a TV show by the same name.I recently had the opportunity to have breakfast with lead actor Ethan Peck, as well as visit the set of the show, where I was able to observe production and participate in interviews with writer and executive producer Carter Covington (Greek), actors Larry Miller (10 Things I Hate About You, Boston Legal), Lindsey Shaw (Aliens in America), and Meaghan Jette Martin (Camp Rock, Dear Lemon Lima).
Over the next few days, I’ll be posting the highlights of breakfast with Peck, as well as the highlights from interviews with Covington, Miller, Shaw, and Martin.After the jump, my experience on set and observing production.
