Things are rapidly coming to a head on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (BBC America, Saturdays, 9/8C) – last week we saw the arrival of the boat in Bergsberg and now we get to see something very special about The Boy. It’s not enough (for us) to put it all together, but it just might be Dirk.
Season two of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency continues its pattern of everything being connected – to the point that one of those connections is the magical world of Wendimoor.
That’s right, Dirk, Todd and Farah are about to make connections that lead them to face off with an evil wizard – but only if Todd and Farah can rescue Dirk from Blackwing (now under new/incompetent management).
Season two of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency returns to BBC America on Saturday, October 14th (9/8C).
Production on BBC America’s new scripted dramedy, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, has begun with Sam Barnett (above) as Dirk Gently.
The series, created by Max Landis (Chronicle) and based on the novels by Douglas Adams, will spend its first season wending its way ‘through one big, seemingly insane mystery, crossing unlikely paths with a bevy of wild and sometimes dangerous characters.’
Along with news of the show’s production start comes news of new cast members – including Battlestar Galactica’s Aaron Douglas as ‘Gordon Rimmer, an enigmatic loser with an impressive series of horrible secrets.’
Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency will premiere in Fall 2016. Follow the jump for further details.
BBC America’s original scripted series Dirk Gently has cast Elijah Wood in the role of Todd. Based on Douglas Adams’ Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency novels, the series is being written by Max Landis of Chronicle fame.
Dirk Gently is a detective who has an unusual method – essentially letting the universe bring clues and direction to him. Todd is slightly less than a partner but definitely more than a sidekick – being as how he’s infinitely more competent in many areas that Dirk. He is also not a good person – though he’s not really a bad one, either…
Dirk Gently is slated for a fall premiere. For more, follow the jump.
Cooties is, for the first hour, a refreshingly odd take on zombie movies. The idea is that infected chicken carries a virus that only turns kids (it leaves adults with a nasty, short-lived flu) – turning a fort chicken grade school into a scene of mostly humorous carnage.
The film comes from SpectreVision, the production company co-founded by Elijah Wood – who also co-stars – to make low-budget genre movies of the sort he grew up enjoying.
