At some point, I guess I just expect Netflix to take a break between announcements for upcoming series developments, but the streaming service is barreling forward with new material. Granted, some of that ďnew materialĒ is based on real people, as it is with The Crown, their pricy and expansive new series.
Anyone who has ever seen an episode of Arrested Development knows that it is about a selfish and totally messed up family who loses their fortune and gets into wacky shenanigans while coming to terms with their new monetary status. However, recently creator Mitch Hurwitz announced that originally Arrested Development was based around two clear premises that never made it into the show.
This pilot season has been chock full of projects based on popular movies, comic books and TV shows, and on Wednesday, Netflix announced it had jumped on the bandwagon. The subscription streaming service has signed on to create a live action version of Richie Rich that is set to begin airing very soon.
Netflix has quite a few different projects on its upcoming slate, but none are on quite the same scale as Marco Polo, the epic adventure hitting the streaming service later this year. Check out the very first NSFW trailer, which is light on dialogue and heavy on killer imagery.
Marvelís blind superhero is getting another shot at live-action next year when Netflix kicks off their Marvel Studios programming. Daredevil will follow the adventures of Matt Murdock, who uses his enhanced sense to fight crime in Hellís Kitchen as the vigilante Daredevil. The show is still seven months away, but hereís everything we know about it so far.
Following the raunchy success of Bojack Horseman, Netflix will once again head to the 2D world of animation by teaming up with Vince Vaughnís Wild West Television for F is for Family, which already boasts a stellar cast.
Next year, Marvelís batch of Netflix programming focusing on the street-level heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will kick off with Daredevil in May. Starring Boardwalk Empire actor Charlie Cox, the series will follow Matt Murdock both at his day job as a lawyer and at night when he suits up as Daredevil to fight crime in Hellís Kitchen. Here's how the new series will be different from Marvel's other TV fodder.
However, recently a brand new survey was conducted finding that people nowadays not only expect spoilers, they often revel in them. Television has gotten much better in recent years, so good in fact that shows have become water cooler topics, whether or not everyone is caught up on them.
It's a big day for streaming video. Earlier, we learned that HBO is finally going to launch a stand-alone streaming service. And now Netflix has announced that they're finally going to offer all ten seasons of Friends streaming.
Itís no mystery that we love cartoons here at Cinema Blend, almost as much as we enjoy reminiscing about childhood. The Care Bears and their other four-legged friends will soon be coming back to make all of our lives that much cheerier.
Next year, Marvel Studios has a brand new superhero coming soon to a screen near you. No, I'm not talking about Ant-Man or even Scarlett Witch or Quicksilver from The Avengers: Age of Ultron. I'm talking about Daredevil - and today we have our first look at his costume:
Daredevil's new logo might be a little cartoonish for a show created by Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus), but Iím sure the series is anything but. Iím quite fond of the aesthetic, actually, as it pays homage to its comic roots, rather than using a cold, straight-fonted logo devoid of warmth
If you didn't start streaming your marathon of Ronald D. Moore's rebooting of Battlestar Galactica on Sunday, you're too late to catch all the episodes before Netflix pulls the plug tomorrow morning.
While most networks are just now giving new projects pilot commitments, Netflix is not nearly as restricted as the networks and just signed on for two seasons of a brand new project this morning. On Tuesday, Netflix signed on with Judd Apatow and Legendary Pictures for Love, a brand new romantic comedy that will offer an ďhonest takeĒ on 21st century relationships.
While online streaming is still a ways away from completely replacing traditional television viewing, it is ubiquitous enough at this point to make "Why isn't this show on Netflix yet?" a fairly common inquiry. As such, here are ten completed series that Netflix needs to add to its stocked library posthaste, so that we may forget things like Hemlock Grove exist.
