The DC comics TV shows have been running a big crossover event that also included a lot of actors from other superhero shows and movies from the past 50+ years. The final episode of it aired yesterday and it included a very unexpected cameo. I won’t reveal what it was for anyone who is interested in such things, but it’s a pretty good one (but not overly amazing).
And speaking of the DC superhero shows… a new one has just been greenlit and I’m actually pretty into this. So expect me to be devastated later this year when I declare it no good.
Superman and Lois will go ahead at The CW. What I like about this show is that both Elizabeth Tulloch and Tyler Hoechin who play the leads are in their 30’s - which is how old Superman and Lois should be. I was very concerned about them being 20-somethings.
Also greenlit is the Walker Texas Ranger reboot starring Jared Padalecki.
Funny lads Tim & Eric, also known as Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, have a new sitcom coming soon to Adult Swim called Beef House. It will debut later this year.
Beef House will be about five men, one woman and one boy “living under one roof.” In each episode, “Tim, a laid-back rock-and-roll slacker, and his best friend Eric, a high-strung stay-at-home husband, find themselves in the middle of a madcap misadventure that can only be traversed with the help of their fellow Beef Boys.
Beastie Boys Story is a doco from Spike Jonze that will be getting a release in IMAX theatres in the US… but will then head to Apple TV+ from April 24. Jonze is well known for directing the Beastie Boys music video for Sabotage. The doco is referred to as a “live documentary experience” - whatever that means.
