‘For All Mankind’ Renewed for Season 4 at Apple TV Plus

Published

on

Apple TV+ has given lift-off for For All Mankind! The streaming service announced Friday at San Diego Comic-Con that the space drama has been picked up for season 4, which will begin production next month. 

Series stars Joel Kinnaman, Shantel VanSanten, Jodi Balfour, Sonya Walger, Krys Marshall, Cynthy Wu, Casey Johnson, Coral Pena, Wrenn Schmidt and Edi Gathegi were all on hand for the announcement, alongside executive producers Ronald D. Moore, Ben Nedivi, Matt Wolpert and Maril Davis.

For All Mankind explores what would have happened if the global space race had never ended. The series presents an aspirational world where NASA astronauts, engineers and their families find themselves in the center of extraordinary events seen through the prism of an alternate history timeline — a world in which the USSR beats the U.S. to the moon.

The most recent season, which dropped June 10, entered a new decade, the 1990s, with a race to a new planetary frontier: Mars. 

At the 2019 launch event for the series, Moore explained why viewers should tune in to the alternate reality space drama.

“It starts in 1969 and everyone is expecting that Apollo 11 is going to be the first to make it to the moon and then at the last minute, the Russians come in and snag the prize,” Moore explained to ET that November. 

“It really shocks the country and it changes the priorities on a national level,” Moore continued. “The Nixon administration goes all-in on the program and it just changes world history at that moment… The alternate history begins at that moment in time and the repercussions just keep dominoing further and further into the series.”

Published

on

Stranger Things star Joe Keery is joining the cast of FX’s Fargo season 5, after his run as Steve Harrington in the Netflix hit series.

Stranger Things star Joe Keery will be joining the cast of FX’s Fargo season 5. Keery made a name for himself as the archetypal 80’s high school bully-turned-hero, Steve Harrington, in Netflix’s hugely popular supernatural/science-fiction show. The series has proved to be the biggest hit for the streaming giant, with Stranger Things season 4 being the most-watched television show on any streaming service this year. For its part, Fargo is a series inspired by the critically-acclaimed Joel and Ethan Cohen 1996 black comedy crime film of the same.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Now, as confirmed by FX, Keery is set to join the cast of the upcoming Fargo season 5. The actor will play a character named Gator Tillman, though no other details about his role have been revealed so far. Keery will be joined by more new cast additions in New Girl‘s Lamorne Morris as Witt Farr, and Never Have I Ever‘s Richa Moorjani as Indira Olmstead. How Tillman, Farr, and Olmstead will fit into season 5’s story has also yet to be revealed.

In a break from the previous season’s more historical settings, Fargo season 5 will reportedly be set in 2019. Its story will likely feature a kidnapping, given FX’s previously released tagline for the season: “When is a kidnapping not a kidnapping, and what if your wife isn’t yours?Ted Lasso star Juno Temple is slated to star as the female lead, Dot, a secretive housewife. According to FX chairman, John Landgraf, the upcoming Fargo season 5 season will also be more comedic compared to previous seasons’ dark tone. Rounding out the cast is Jon Hamm as Roy and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Lorraine. Following his beloved role as Steve in Stranger Things and his recent comedy turn in Free Guy, it will be interesting to see how Keery’s role fits into this new take on the Fargo universe, but the actor has proved himself more than up to the task.

Blink49 Studios Bolsters Business Affairs Team With Senior Hires (EXCLUSIVE)

Published

on

Blink49 Studios has boosted its business affairs division with the hires of two seasoned executives.

Based in Los Angeles and reporting into CEO John Morayniss, Nicole Ungerman Levinsohn joins as senior VP, business and legal Affairs, responsible for the structuring, negotiation, documentation and management of Blink49 Studios’ agreements, including agreements to engage talent, acquire underlying rights, and license content. In addition, Levinsohn will implement and administer standard operating procedures for the company’s development, production and acquisitions, and manage all business-related partnerships.

Levinsohn was previously senior VP of business and legal affairs at UPN, where she negotiated the first network deal for the WWE, as well as for “America’s Next Top Model” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Prior to that, Levinsohn was at NBC, where she was responsible for “Seinfeld,” “Mad About You” and “Frasier.”

Based in Toronto, Daphne Park joins as VP, production finance and business affairs and will report to COO Jeff Lynas and Levinsohn. Park was previously VP of business affairs at Sphere Media Toronto where she handled several films and series. Most recently, she served as a co-executive producer on drama series, “The Porter” (CBC/BET+) and co-producer on two seasons of “Sort Of” (CBC/HBO Max).

Endeavor Content-backed Blink49 launched last November with a content-first mission to partner with writers, creators, partners and talent. Since then, the Toronto-based company, which has offices in L.A. and Vancouver, has had a strong start, signing Canadian creator Sheri Elwood (“Call Me Fitz”) to a first-look deal in its inaugural talent pact last March. The company has also acquired TV adaptation rights to Canadian author Marissa Stapley’s novel “Things to Do When it’s Raining” and Canadian author Charlene Carr’s upcoming 2023 novel “Hold My Girl.” It recently signed deals with Lilly Singh’s Unicorn Island Productions and Jeff Wachtel’s Future Shack Entertainment.

Morayniss said: “I’m so thrilled to officially welcome Nicole and Daphne to the Blink49 team. With Nicole leading the charge from Los Angeles and Daphne in Toronto, we have a group of stellar executives with a broad and diverse depth of knowledge, experience and relationships covering the North American and international business, legal and production finance landscape.”

Levinsohn added: “I have admired John Morayniss as a friend and savvy business executive for decades. I am incredibly excited to be joining Blink49 in this role and look forward to working with Daphne and the rest of the talented and burgeoning team to achieve success — both above and below the 49th parallel.”
