Sabrina Cast for Netflix Show

It was announced last month that Netflix was taking over the Riverdale spinoff from the CW. It’s intended to be a more horror-based take on the Sabrina the Teenage Witch concept. Now comes important news — they’ve cast the lead, and it’s a great choice. Kiernan Shipka — best-known as the daughter on Mad Men — will star as “Sabrina Spellman … described as an empowered young woman, half-human, half-witch who is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, […]

The animated series Freedom Fighters: The Ray now has six episodes (most only six minutes) available on the CW Seed digital network. It opens in a post-apocalyptic-looking Nazi-controlled city, a prequel to the recent superhero TV show crossover Crisis on Earth-X. (Similar to the way Vixen was a cartoon that explained that hero’s origin.) The first episode sets the stage and shows the team of heroes — the light-powered Ray (Russell Tovey), the dark-casting and sometimes invisible Phantom Lady (Dilshad […]

WarGames to Return as Interactive Series

I adore the WarGames movie. It’s still one of the best-ever portraits of what hacking is really about (research, social engineering, and grunt work). I didn’t see the direct-to-video sequel WarGames: The Dead Code that came out ten years ago because why would I? (Did anyone?

The pictures of “hackers” look ridiculously […]

Sabrina Show Moves From CW to Netflix

Ah, Netflix. What would we do without your apparently bottomless pile of cash to save TV shows and pilots?

Now comes word that the CW has passed, but Netflix has so much faith in the concept that they have ordered two seasons of […]
