1ST PHOTOS OF EXTRAVAGANT OUTFITS FROM LAVISH CORONATION EPISODE OF 'REIGN' EPIC SHOW! COLIN MORGAN JOINS 'HUMANS' SF SHOW! MONSTER IN LAW' SITCOM! CHRISTINA HENDRICKS IN 'ANOTHER PERIOD' COMEDY SERIES

  COLIN MORGAN JOINS
'HUMANS' SF TV SERIES
Tones of TV news today, people, starting with our most beloved MERLIN star Colin Morgan returning to the small screens in new sf show HUMANS which will be a co production between British Channel 4 and American AMC. The plot of the show is set in a world where the new must-have gadget is a 'Synth' - an eerily lifelike robotic servant. Katherine Parkinson and Tom Goodman Hill will play a couple who purchase a Synth (Gemma Chan) but quickly come to regret their decision! Colin Morgan will play Leo - a young man on the run, while Neil Maskell will be a member of the Special Technologies Task Force. GAME OF THRONE's Will Tudor, Emily Berrington (24: Live Another Day) and Rebecca Front will also star in the English version of a Swedish series.

  CHRISTINA HENDRICKS IN
 'ANOTHER PERIOD' SITCOM
Two new comedy series have been announced today: Christina Hendricks will star in ANOTHER PERIOD historical comedy series at Comedy Central! Starring Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome the sitcom, set in the turn of the century, follows the misadventures of the Bellacourts, who have absolutely nothing to offer to the world, but who have so much money it doesn’t matter.  Christina Hendricks will play a new servant on the estate who is not who she appears to be.
 MON- STER IN LAW TO BECOME SITCOM
 Meanwhile, Fox will produce a sitcom based on Jane Fonda's and Jennifer Lopez' MONSTER IN LAW movie which will follow a happy couple about to embark on the challenge of parenthood, with the story set against the fraught relationship between the wife and her husband's mother.

  LAVISH ROYAL CORONATION
IN THE NEW EPISODE OF 'REIGN'
Now, we've seen Mary and Francis taking over the rule over France at the start of the second season of CW's popular historical series REIGN, but we haven't yet seen the official coronation! The crowning will happen in the fourth episode in which, with France in a state of famine, as well as religious and political unrest, Mary (Adelaide Kane) looks for a way to feed the people, risking the wrath of a vengeful Lord Narcisse (Craig Parker). Francis (Toby Regbo) is preoccupied by the harrowing suspicion that his dead father’s spirit can possess the living and is haunting Francis as revenge for his murder. As Catherine (Megan Follows) makes excessive and lavish preparations for a coronation ceremony to give the impression of stability to the realm, Bash (Torrance Coombs) confronts the reality of a country plagued by fear, bankruptcy, and murder.

THE LAVISH GOWNS
The royal coronation episode will show us a sumptuous wardrobe of rich fabrics, over-the-top crowns, exquisite jewelry, and fashion forward clothing! As EW reports, Mary's coronation gown made from gold embroidered burgundy brocade with a very long train took 12 yards of fabric, six seamstresses and designers and two weeks to finish! Francis is wearing a vest from the same brocade. Mary will also wear an ornate golden crown and extravagant oxidized, gold-plated Swarovski crystal chandelier earrings! The old queen Catherine will wear Oscar de la Renta ruby necklace! It is interesting that most of the costumes and jewellery seen in the show are taken from the collections of contemporary designers.

    1. but a very bad actress, sadly... her portrayal of the queen is rather like watching a young lass in a High School play....

    1. we do positively adore every bit of him! It is so sad that some of the deeply charismatic lead stars of beloved epic shows don't get new lead roles when the show ends. Remember Craig Horner from LEGEND OF THE SEEKER, or even Bradley James from MERLIN?

  6. "who have absolutely nothing to offer to the world, but who have so much money it doesn’t matter." Kinda like the Kardashians?

  7. Humans - hmm, make me think of Woody Allen's 1973 movie, "Sleeper" /http://youtu.be/-n6ZeaeY7zE You might remember that one - regarding servants.

    "Another Period" comedy - and who said, "let them eat cake," ??

    "Reign" - is it as feisty as the trailer?

  9. Those are stunning costumes.

    Another Period sounds interesting. It kind of sounds like a historical Arrested Development.

  11. My favorite part of Reign is reading all the comments about the wardrobe and other "inconsistencies". People get soooo mad. It's very entertaining.

    1. I generally hate the costumes in it too :) not just because they're inconsistent but because they're totally random and often have nothing to do with the scenes and situations. You can use contemporary costumes in such shows to be special, but the costume designer has to be on top of his/her task, which isn't true in REIGN. Not that they don't have great ones from time to time... the wedding was amazing.
