Mel Brooks Is Back With ĎHistory of the World, Part IIí Series / Rolling Stone

"Forty years after the filmís release, Mel Brooksí classic 1981 comedy History of the World, Part I is receiving a sequel as Hulu orders the eight-episode variety series History of the World, Part II.

The show will follow the same format as the film, which was made up of segments parodying periods of world history.

Production on History of the World, Part II is set to begin in spring 2022 with Brooks on board as a writer alongside Nick Kroll, Wanda Sykes, Ike Barinholtz, David Stassen, and Kevin Salter.

History of the World, Part II will be produced by Searchlight Television and 20th Television.

ďI canít wait to once more tell the real truth about all the phony-baloney stories the world has been conned into believing are history!Ē Brooks said of the return."

Default Heads up people - The upcoming television programme thread

Emilio Estevez has been dropped from season 2 of The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers after he apparently refused to say whether he'd comply with the "zone A" covid rules some production companies have brought in which requires actors, and those working closely with them, to be vaccinated. The scripts are being re-written to remove Gordon Bombay. Some are saying that creative differences played a part in him being dropped, so it may have been a little of both.

Link quite long so here first few pharagraphs.

Get me that golden joystick! The miraculous return of GamesMaster
Please Channel 4, don’t mess it up … Sir Trevor McDonald as the GamesMaster.
It was a cult classic in the 90s. Now, GamesMaster has been revived with three new presenters and Trevor McDonald as the sadistic cyborg. It’s as smart and silly as the original – if suspiciously like Top Gear

If you happen to be in your early 40s with a particular set of interests, no two words will strike fear into your heart like “GamesMaster revival”. Between 1992 and 1998, GamesMaster, a video game challenge and review show hosted by Dominik Diamond (and, briefly, Dexter Fletcher), was appointment viewing. It was smart, it was silly, it was pitched just high enough over the heads of its target audience to make it feel cool, and it tapped into the console boom like nothing before or since. So when E4 announced a GamesMaster remake earlier this year, the tired middle-aged men of the world collectively let out a prayer. Please Channel 4, don’t mess it up.

Reader, they did not. Miraculously, the new GamesMaster series has pulled off the near-impossible trick of modernising the show while retaining its core DNA. There are still game reviews and challenges, but all the faces are new. Patrick Moore – who in the original series played the titular sadistic, spherical cyborg – has been replaced by Sir Trevor McDonald, and in place of Dominik Diamond are three presenters; the comedy writer Rab Florence, the esports host Frankie Ward and the Instagram comedian Ty Logan. It stands as a cruel indictment of time that Florence is the only one of the new presenters old enough to remember the original (and its coveted golden joystick trophy). And it turns out he didn’t even watch it that much.

Look forward to Tennant as Fogg.

Can't wait to see The Mezzotint. It's my favourite James story and i always watch the Robert Powell read version several times over the Christmas month.

Lectures eh? Probably get one of those from Jodie Whitaker as usual.
