This early season two order is a testament to the quality work the creative team, led by Matt and Frank, and the cast are delivering.”

The Story of 2213 (So far)

Part 1: The History

2213 has its origins in my undergrad program and in my undying love for BBC’s Sherlock. I came to the fandom just after watching series 3 and was astounded by the wonderful meta and investigation that fans had put into examining the show and the original stories on which it was based. I was in my junior year of college at the time and looking for a project for my thesis. The idea of adapting one of the Conan Doyle stories to feature a female Holmes and Watson seemed only natural.

My co-producer and I chose to adapt The Boscombe Valley Mystery, mostly because of its straightforward plot and the fact that it was easy to translate into modern times. Holmes and Watson were made women, remained British, and continued to live in 221B in London. In all honesty, that production read as a BBC Sherlock fan piece (even the original music we had recorded for it had essences of Sherlock scoring) but we had fun with it nonetheless.

Two months after closing night, my adviser and I met to go over my grade for the project.  She gave me a wealth of positive feedback and asked me if I would ever consider adapting such a thing for television. I hadn’t considered it, I told her, and she told me to start thinking about it. She had a contact at Syfy who was commissioning work for their web series division and was willing to put in a word for me if I could get some material together. How could I turn down an offer like that?

The next few months were overwhelming – I graduated from college with a B.F.A. in Theater, emphasis in Acting. It was difficult to keep up with writing during that time, but I managed to draft three episodes and map out a first season before the end of the year. By that time, unfortunately, my adviser’s contact had left Syfy. Disappointed, and overwhelmed with other facets of my life, I put the idea on the back burner.

For the next year, I worked on the show sparingly. It underwent many changes since the original performance in 2015. Watson and Holmes were named “Johanna” and “Charlotte” respectively, they were moved to the U.S. (Seattle, my home – which I know well), and they were moved into a dingy apartment above “Hudson’s Deli” at 2213 Bell Street where they live today.

Part Two: The Show Now

By making the characters women in the modern day United States, I realized that there was a unique opportunity before me to have Charlotte Holmes not only be a “consulting detective,” but also a sort of vigilante for those wronged in the criminal justice system. What if, I thought, she tackled the crimes that were found in the system itself?

Conan Doyle himself was a staunch advocate for justice [x] and often stood up for the wrongfully accused, a character trait he passed on to his great detective. I’ve been inspired while writing this series by incidents of police brutality (and subsequent failure to prosecute officers involved), stories of wrongful convictions, and allegations of cover-ups of police wrong-doings.

That’s the cases themselves, though. At the end of the day, I’m most interested in the relationship between Holmes and Watson (Charlotte and Jo) and how adaptations have been getting that relationship wrong for over one hundred years. It is, after all, the greatest love story ever told.

Part Three: Moving Forward

I’ve been inspired the last few weeks by several Tumblr users to start getting this project off the ground. To those of you who listened to my self-indulgent ramblings about this piece of work, I thank you – you were ever so encouraging. 

I’m now reaching out to the masses to ask for your help. I’d like to self-produce the pilot episode (I have some people I can reach out to to help with this), but I need funds to do so. There will be a kickstarter campaign coming in the next couple of weeks.

I’m also looking for people to read the first thirty pages of the pilot and provide feedback to me. From that feedback, I’m planning to edit/write the rest of the episodes for season one.

And lastly, I’m putting feelers out there for graphic designers, musicians etc. who might be interested in contributing to such a project.

Thank you for reading if you’ve stuck through to the end of this post! If you can help by putting the word out, reblogging, or messaging me about any of the above points, I would appreciate it!

Sincerely,

Rebecca

What’s In Store For The Get Down Part 2?

Read under the ‘Keep Reading’ or on NerdyPOC’s Medium

The Get Down is set in the South Bronx in New York and revolves around these teens who change the city through their music, dance and graffiti. It gained popularity on Tumblr and Twitter after many had pointed out how a show full of diversity and incredible storytelling was being sidelined for shows that did not break the status quo. Many feared last year that due to the ratings not being as high as some of the other Netflix hits such as ‘Stranger Things’ that we wouldn’t get more episodes but that fear was dispelled when we got a trailer for Part 2 last week.

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ CG Animated Series Gets 2D Reboot at Nickelodeon!

The kid network will be rebooting its current CG “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” series as a 2D animated series with the title “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” The network made the announcement at its upfront presentation in New York on Thursday afternoon!

The Turtles is a property that has reinvention in its DNA, which keeps it fresh and relevant to every new generation while satisfying the demand from its adult fans,” said Cyma Zarghami, president, Nickelodeon Group. “’Turtles’ has been an incredibly important franchise for us since we reignited it five years ago, and we’re excited for the new series to take the characters in a different direction with more humor, a younger and lighter feel and all-new dimensions to explore.

The new 2D series is co-executive produced by Andy Suriano (character designer for the critically acclaimed Adult Swim series “Samurai Jack”) and Ant Ward (supervising producer, current “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) at Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif.

The CG series will air one last season starting Sunday, March 19. Nickelodeon has ordered 26 episodes of the 2D reboot to air starting in fall 2018.

“Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” will follow Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo on all-new adventures as they seek to unlock the mystical secrets of New York City. From the tallest skyscraper to the dankest sewer drain, the Turtles will encounter absurd new mutants and battle bizarre creatures all while enjoying their favorite slice of pizza. Tapping into mystic, ninja powers they never knew existed, the four brothers must learn to work together and navigate the perils of the modern age and hidden realms in order to fulfill their destiny to become a team of heroes.

To the fans who are complaining about how lame the fight between Obi-wan and Maul was: Here is the reason behind it in Rebels Recon:
  • (Star Wars Correspondent) Andi Gutierrez: The actual duel between the two Masters is very short. Like a samurai film. How did you come to the conclusion that it had to be done this way?
  • (Producer) Carrie Beck: We never entered into this story trying to think about how satisfying that battle should be. It really became about what was the general intention of this moment? And knowing where these two men are at this point in their lives, I think it's important for us —even though on the timeline, we aren't to a New Hope yet— to think about what we know of Obi-wan in that movie and to work backwards in some way to make sure that the characters progression charts appropriately.
  • (Co-Producer) Henry Gilroy: When you've fought someone many times, or face off you kind of know each other's moves. So if you think about it, the build up to this confrontation and the actual Lightsabers hitting each other is actually longer, cause their basically playing it out in their heads and the amazing thing is the move that Maul tries after the initial exchange he actually attempts the move that killed Qui Gon Jinn. He tried to basically bash him with the hilt.
  • (Executive Producer) Dave Filoni: If you talk to a lot of people that sword fight, they'll tell you that people that are very good don't have long fights, it's very quick. And so that scene, it's an homage to the Seven Samurai. I think on one level people would be excited to see another prolonged Lightsaber fight but I just never really saw the confrontation that way because to do that is to say that the characters don't have growth. Yes, it's exciting as an audience member but it's not really a believable thing. The storytelling has to evolve.
  • (People need to take a moment and listen to what Dave said about Mauls death and the fight in general. It WASN'T meant to be a prolonged fight as he said otherwise the meaning of the fight itself would be completely lost.)

Hayley Atwell, Matthew Macfadyen, Tracy Ullman to Star in 'Howards End' Miniseries
‘Manchester by the Sea’ filmmaker Kenneth Lonergan is writing the script

Hayley Atwell, Matthew Macfadyen, and Tracy Ullman are taking up residence in Howards End.

The trio have been cast in the BBC’s four-part limited series based on the classic E.M. Forster novel. Starz is also joining as co-producer, per an announcement Wednesday.

Manchester by the Sea filmmaker Kenneth Lonergan is writing the miniseries, which will explore the changing landscape of social and class divisions in turn-of-the-century England through the prism of three families: the intellectual and idealistic Schlegels, the wealthy Wilcoxes from the world of business, and the working-class Basts.

Atwell (Agent Carter) will play Margaret Schlegel, Macfadyen (Ripper Street) will portray Henry Wilcox, and Ullman (The Tracey Ullman Show) will play Aunt Juley Mund.

Hettie Macdonald (White Girl) is directing.

Published in 1910, Howards End was previously adapted to the big screen in 1992, with a cast including Anthony Hopkins, Vanessa Redgrave, Helena Bonham Carter, and Emma Thompson (who won the Oscar for best actress).

The Howards End limited series will film in and around London. The hourlong episodes will air on BBC One in the U.K. and Starz in the U.S.

rly disappointing to have marina go out and make an album that she wrote entirely herself and co-produce with one other guy, about her personal emotional growth and finding happiness that reached #8 on the billboard 200, gave us new singles for five months, obviously really cared about the visual and aesthetic world she wanted to immerse us in, only for yall to be like:

…………so when’s EH 2.0 coming out we need some new bops

After reading this post by @angrydennisreynolds  about Women contributors on sunny, it made me think of this quote from Kaitlin “That extended to the crew behind-the-scenes. “We have an amazing diverse crew, lots and lots of women, lots of gay women with families, which makes me very proud, lots of female directors, female ADs,” she says. “It’s really important for me, having a female-driven show, to have a bunch of strong driven women around me.” In this first season of ‘The Mick’ so far there have been 3 women directors-

Kat Koiro - 2 eps, Geeta V Patel - 1 ep, Silver Tree - 1 ep.

There’s been 4 writers, Harper Dill - 1 ep, 9 story editor creditsChristine Nangle - 1 ep, Lindsay Golder - 1 ep, Laura Chinn - 1 ep.

There have been 6 women producers, Kaitlin Olson - Co Executive Producer, Laura Chinn - co producer, Caroline James - Producer, Christine Nangle - producer, Julie Hrebec - producer, Susan V McConnell - Producer. 

There have been 5 AD’s, Michele LaBrucherie - 2nd assistant director - 8 eps,  Stacy Murphy Gold - 1st assistant director- 4 eps,  Janell M. Sammelman - 1st AD- 3 eps,  Shea Vargé - 1st AD - 2 eps, Helena Lamb - 1st AD - 1 ep. 

The Mick hasn’t even finished the first season yet and has nearly beaten Sunny in every bracket. It’s Always Sunny has been on for 12 years. So what I’m saying is -  

The Mick is fucking hilarious and is doing a pretty bang up job so far, you should all be watching it!!

Hi, Aaron! Love SVTFOE! Got into it after I saw Blood Moon Ball, an episode you and your co-director/supervising producer Dominic wrote and storyboarded, and the best Season 1 episode along with Storm the Castle. I wanna ask: What was your personal favorite moment that you wrote/boarded for the series?

Hello,
Thanks for the kind words! I remember when Dominic and I were writing and storyboarding Blood Moon Ball. It was such a daunting task to try to accurately depicted the sort of emotions that you have to deal with, often for the first time, during your early teenage years. With that said I think that the argument on the balcony at the end of blood moon ball was probably the most challenging, but ultimately most satisfying scene to storyboard and write. But I’m a sap for those sort of scenes.

Asa Butterfield (“The Space Between Us”) stars alongside Maisie Williams (“Game of Thrones”,) with cast also including Nina Dobrev (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Flatliners”,) and Tyler Hoechlin (“Teen Wolf,” “Fifty Shades Freed”.)

Voltage is pitching the project as a sweet, uplifting tale in the vein of “The Fault in Our Stars.” It says it has had a strong early response from buyers at the Berlin International Film Festival’s European Film Market.

“Fergal has written a beautiful screenplay… This film will certainly resonate with the vast teen audience the world over,” said Voltage CEO Chartier. “’Departures’ is one of those rare projects that’s both commercial and intricate in its handling of many aspects of our humanity,’ said Claude Dal Farra.
