Doctor Who’s Steven Moffat Lands ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’ Series Adaptation at HBO

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 01/08/2018 - 6:27am in

[Ed. Note: My bad, DOCTOR Who fans ;-) ]

While much of the attention over the past several months has been focused on the “original content smackdown” going on between Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu (for example, check out the price tag on Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series), HBO has quietly been securing deals with some major names for some major projects – and that streak continues with a straight-to-series order for UK writer-producer Steven Moffat‘s (Doctor Who, Sherlock) adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger‘s novel “The Time Traveler’s Wife”.

Steven MoffatCredit: Gage Skidmore

“I read Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife many years ago, and I fell in love with it. In fact, I wrote a Doctor Who episode called ‘The Girl In The Fireplace’ as a direct response to it. When, in her next novel, Audrey had a character watching that very episode, I realized she was probably on to me. All these years later, the chance to adapt the novel itself, is a dream come true. The brave new world of long form television is now ready for this kind of depth and complexity. It’s a story of happy ever after – but not necessarily in that order.” – Steven Moffat

Written by Moffat and based on Niffenegger’s best-selling 2003 novel, The Time Traveler’s Wife is described as an “intricate and magical love story about Clare and Henry, and a marriage with a problem: time travel.” Moffat, Sue Vertue, and Brian Minchin are set to executive produce through their Hartswood Films banner; with Warner Bros. Television co-producing.

“HBO is the perfect home to tell this incredible story with all the scale and space it needs, and we’re delighted to be working with Warner Bros to bring Steven’s thrilling vision of the novel to life.” – Hartswood Films (statement)

HBO‘s deal with Moffat is the third major competitive situation that the network has entered into and secured a series from this year. The cable giant peviously announced that they would be the home for JJ AbramsDemimonde and Joss Whedon’s The Nevers. With Game of Thrones ending its run in 2019 and the prequels still some time off, HBO is looking for another “tent pole” series that could garner the level of succes that Game of Thones has brought.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Steven Moffat, Hartswood and WBTV on The Time Traveler’s Wife. Steven’s passion is evident in every project he’s written and we are certain that his love and respect for this mesmerizing and textured novel will make it a quintessential HBO series.” – Casey Bloys, President of Programming, HBO

This story was originally reported by Deadline Hollywood.

I cut a tape of my favorite songs — said what I can’t face to face. I hoped that you would share all my thoughts. We are young and unimpressed with all you’d recognize. So play it all over, turn it wide. Now there is nothing but a mix tape left behind. Now it won’t… The Weekly Static!

Feeling all sorts of Better Than Ezra right about now; so while my back’s turned, why not make a run for it back to the loving arms of this week’s…

The Weekly Static is Bleeding Cool‘s look at the past week in the land of the networks, cable, streaming, smoke signals, cloud formations, and shadow puppets from an interesting and entertaining perspective. So The Weekly Static’s “The Five Amigos” (myself, Rocky, Trejo, Bat-Murr, and Margo Staten) promises to do this (but we won’t do that… no, we won’t do that…):

● Offer blunt, honest perspectives on five TV topics from the past week covered by Bleeding Cool’s team of news-thirsty writers. Just to be clear? My views are my views and don’t reflect on the writers. We own what we say 110%.

● Spotlight a news item that we missed when it first hit, but we’re pretty sure you’ll want to know about.

● Feed my insatiable-yet-fragile ego with buckets of praise, adulation, social media shares, pizza, Eisner Awards, at least one write-in vote for the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election… and for someone to explain to Kevin Smith that Avengers: Infinity War isn’t even the best Marvel Studios film, let alone best super-hero movie of all time.

“’Strong female lead’ has been a buzz phrase for film and television as of late. That said, Michelle Wolf created a sketch for her forthcoming Netflix talk show The Break with Michelle Wolf that supports strong female characters…in her own special, fun way.

Spoofing the concept altogether, the mock trailer (watch above) features Wolf in a movie appropriately titled Featuring Strong Female Lead: The Movie. In it, Wolf plays the nameless title character who has an ambiguous job where she is constantly “under indictment” and is dressed in a very Olivia Pope-esque pantsuit…”

Doctor Who’s David Tennant, Catherine Tate vs. the U.S. in Comedy-Drama Series ‘Americons’

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 19/05/2018 - 3:06am in

david tennant catherine tate americonsCredit: BBC

While it would be tempting to throw in a “I don’t want to go” joke here or something cutesy about The Doctor and his companions always finding their way back to one another, David Tennant and Catherine Tate are facing a deadly-serious menace unlike any they’ve face before: America.

The Doctor Who alums are returning to televsion in Americons, a scripted comedy-drama written by Tate and developed by Bad Wolf for Sky One. In their exclusive post, Deadline Hollywood also reports that production on the series — which will follow the pair as they move to the United States – is already in advanced stages of development.

Tate and Tennant first appeared together in Doctor Who‘s 2006 Christmas Special (‘The Runaway Bride’), with Tate joining the series in 2008’s “restart” fourth season as The Doctor’s companion. The pair also shared the British stage in a 2011 performance of Much Ado About Nothing; and currently work together on Disney’s animated series reboot of DuckTales, with Tate voicing villainous sorceress Magica De Spell and Tennant voicing Scrooge McDuck.

Production house Bad Wolf was founded in 2015 by Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner, who worked with Russell T. Davies to help bring back Doctor Who. Sky One continues increasing its high-profile programming slate, including Idris Elba comedy In The Long Run and Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters-fronted buddy cop drama Bulletproof.

In a 2011 interview with The Telegraph, Tate and Tennant discussed the issue of Doctor Who fans not being able to see them in different roles together:

Tennant: I know that was said a lot when I did Hamlet for the RSC [in 2008], but, to be honest, it never occurred to me. I just imagined people would be sensible enough not to bring those preconceptions with them. It’s probably slightly naïve, but it genuinely didn’t occur to me with this either. Perhaps it should have done.

It would be disingenuous to suggest that the fact this is happening hasn’t got something to do with the power of Doctor Who, and that’s something I’m wonderfully thankful for. But, for me, the thinking was “I’d like to do a play; I’d like to do Much Ado About Nothing; and it just so happens that the perfect Beatrice in my head is Catherine”. That’s as involved as my thought process was.

Tate: Benedick and Beatrice are similar to the Doctor and Donna in some ways – there’s a lot of sparring – but this is a romantic relationship, which was never the case in Doctor Who. Of course, there’s a natural desire to see that energy between us being recreated. I trust people have more sense than to assume it will be the same.
