Alice Eve (Star Trek: Into Darkness) has joined the cast of Marvel’s Iron Fist as… your guess is as good as ours.

The actress’ Season 2 role is not being disclosed, but perhaps there’s a hint to be found in this statement from executive producer Jeph Loeb: “[Alice Eve’s] exceptional talent brings an intrigue and danger to her character unlike anyone else.”

BBC Hits Like Doctor Who, Sherlock And More To Go Online Over Christmas

The BBC has announced today that it’s giving its viewers a special treat over the upcoming yuletide period, as several of the network’s top shows will be made available to stream online. The series chosen include Doctor Who, Sherlock, Line of Duty, Planet Earth, Happy Valley and many more. From what we understand, they’ll be made available on the BBC’s catch-up service BBC iPlayer, in a move that suggests the corporation is trying to rebrand the site as a rival to the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime.

BBC director of content Charlotte Moore had this to say about the treat in a statement released earlier:

“It’s fantastic to give audiences a special gift on iPlayer to complement our schedules. Sit back and indulge as we curate some of the most loved shows you may have missed first time round or favourites you want to watch again.

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in December, and The Best Episodes of Each

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in December, and The Best Episodes of Each
1. “The Crown” Season 2 (available December 8)

Why Should I Watch It? “The Crown” is the new ruler of Netflix. With “House of Cards” on the outs (take that as you will), the streaming giant’s other big-time awards player is assuming, ahem, the crown. Peter Morgan’s historical drama may not be for everyone — period drama fans will swoon, while anyone looking for surprises will snooze — but it’s an unequivocally well-made show, with pristine production design and impeccable performances. Sure, you may wish for more corgis and less melodrama, but the stuffiness is largely overshadowed by astonishing grandeur. This will be a perennial awards player for the foreseeable future, so you may as well try it out.

Best Episode: Season 2 lacks an obvious standout — Season 1’s arguable choice would be the penultimate episode, “Assassins” — but I’d argue Episode 4 of Season 2, titled “Beryl,” is the best of the lot. Focusing on Princess Margaret,

Red Dwarf Xii Episode 5 Review – ‘M-Corp’

Villordsutch reviews Red Dwarf Xii – M-Corp…

They say “time flies when you’re having fun” and here we are – rather shockingly – at the penultimate episode of Red Dwarf Xii. This weeks episode “M-Corp” sees Doug Naylor (again both writer & director) take such a subtle swipe at capitalism you may just miss it. I am of course typing this with my tongue firmly planted in my cheek.

It’s a day of celebrations. Firstly Lister’s birthday where we find him firmly above the forties, then for Rimmer as Lister promptly has a heart attack, though we quickly discover Lister didn’t suffer a heart attack thanks to a probe dropped into his body; it was actually a bad case of indigestion. Then the good news rolls in for all of the crew, as they are informed that a major corporation called M-Corp bought out Jmc – along with Planet Earth – back in the 26th Century.

International Newswire: South Korea’s ‘My Husband Got a Family’ Embraced by Mexico

In today’s International Newswire, Korean format ‘My Husband Got a Family’ scores in Mexico; Sola boards Latino hit animated movie “Space Chicken”; Sony Pictures Television produces ‘Atrapada’ for Mexico’s Imagen TV; and Karlovy Vary extends scope of its East of the West section to include the Middle East.

Which are the most successful format exporting countries in international TV? Few would include South Korea, but just weeks after “The Good Doctor,” based on a Korean format, bowed on ABC to spectacular ratings, another Korean re-version, “Mi marido tiene familia” (My Husband Got a Family), has just slayed the opposition as it bowed out on Mexican giant Televisa’s main Las Estrellas channel. Playing in a 5.30 P.M. time-slot on Sunday, the drama’s average share of 28.7% rated 364% above the competition.

A romantic family comedy, “Mi marido tiene familia” obviously touched a national nerve. Its plot — a thoroughly-modern woman butts heads with her husband’s rediscovered

New Photos For The Walking Dead Season 8 Feature Some Disgusting Walkers

Planet Earth has fallen into the cold, dead hands of the Walkers.

At least, that’s according to The Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple, who recently warned viewers that in season 8, the world belongs to those undead flesh-munchers scattered across the globe. It’s a timely reminder, too, given how much of The Walking Dead‘s marketing campaign is often dedicated to the human conflict bubbling away beneath the surface, with the show’s eighth season poised to bring a sense of closure to the battle brewing between Negan and Rick Grimes.

War is (almost) upon us, then, but as Gimple points out, part and parcel of what makes The Walking Dead so special is the unrelenting zombies. They’re a constant source of danger, essentially, even if you can’t see them on screen. And though this year’s instalment will place a particular focus on the “all-out war” involving Alexandria,

Decades before “Planet Earth,” “An Inconvenient Truth,” “Naked and Afraid,” or even kids’ “Nature Cards” in the 1980’s, Jane Goodall was nature and environmental media’s “Eve.” At 83, Eve headlined the Hollywood Bowl on Monday night as the star of Brett Morgen’s feature documentary “Jane.” National Geographic, which will release the film in theaters later this month, leveled-up with a King Kong-sized outdoor seated dinner, premiere, and live orchestra scoring the film for over 15,000 guests.

War is (almost) upon us, then, but you wouldn’t know it from the sneak peek of the season 8 premiere that AMC just dropped at New York Comic Con tonight. It’s a bit of an odd promo to release, as it focuses solely on Carl and doesn’t really show much of the action that’s to come.

Planet Earth and Life: Educational BBC Shows You Should Check Out

People have been complaining about the TV ruining minds ever since it became a central component of the household.

As a result, it is no exaggeration to say that TV viewers can enrich their lives in various ways by watching the right TV shows, with some excellent examples being BBC’s Life and Planet Earth.

Critics Pick the Best Documentary TV Series Ever, From ‘The Jinx’ to ’30 for 30’ – IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick the Best Documentary TV Series Ever, From ‘The Jinx’ to ’30 for 30’ – IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What’s the best documentary series you’ve seen on TV? Opening this up to past series, current ones, and those that you may have seen screeners for that are coming up soon.

Liz Shannon Miller (@lizlet), IndieWire

While we debate whether or not it technically counts as a TV show (certainly that Oscar it won would suggest otherwise), “O.J.: Made in America” was without question a seminal work, and one which owed a lot to its episodic structure while proving to be an addictive binge. Documentaries aren’t exactly my favorite genre, but “Made in America” was as gripping as any scripted series — and we have definitive proof of this,

Radiohead, Hans Zimmer Record Track for BBC Natural History Epic ‘Blue Planet II’
Radiohead and Hans Zimmer have joined forces to make a track for upcoming BBC natural history epic “Blue Planet II.” The pair will record “(ocean) bloom,” a new version of Radiohead song “Bloom” from their 2011 album “The King of Limbs.”

The exclusive track from Radiohead, one of the world’s biggest rock bands, and Zimmer, one of the best-known movie composers, will feature in a prequel to the blue-chip series. A short teaser version of the prequel will be released online Sept. 26 ahead of its full launch at a “Blue Planet II” premiere at London’s BFI Imax on Sept. 27.

Thom Yorke will re-record his vocals for the track, which will be recorded at Air studios in London with the BBC Concert Orchestra. The Radiohead lead singer said the first “Blue Planet” was the starting point for the original track.
