DISNEY REVEALS 'MOANA' PRINCESS & DWAYNE JOHNSON'S DEMIGOD MAUI! MAX MARTINI, RYAN KWANTEN, YVONNE STRAHOVSKI LEAD 'EDGE: THE LONER' WESTERN SERIES, CHRISTINA RICCI IS ZELDA FITZGERALD IN 'Z'

NEW NETFLIX PILOTS
'EDGE: THE LONER' TV WESTERN WITH RYAN KWANTEN AND MAX MARTINI IN THE CAST
Not much to report today, it's been a very slow week! Netflix has announced a number of pilots which could turn into series if audience likes them. Among them is western EDGE: THE LONER set in 1868, with Max Martini playing a Union officer turned cowboy, who prowls the post Civil War American west doling out his own peculiar brand of justice. Australian superstar Ryan Kwanten and Yvonne Strahovski round up the cast.
CHRISTINA RICCI IS 'Z'
Meanwhile, Christina Ricci will lead Z playing Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, the original Jazz Age 1920s icon. It follows her passionate and turbulent love affair with and marriage to writer F Scott Fitzgerald (Gavin Stenhouse) and their lives as a famous couple. The series travels through the wild parties, the wicked jazz and the dissolute artists of the era, as well as the alcoholism, adultery and mental illness that characterised the couple's later years.

  2. Christina Ricci will make a great Zelda! I'm looking forward to it. The Fitzgeralds led chaotic, talented and troubled lives -- perfect for a movie!

  8. Is Netflix doing like Amazon where they're putting the pilots out there and monitoring how many people watch them before making more episodes?

    1. yes. They will release six of these pilots before the end of the year and will see if it will go into full series production. The same they did with CASANOVA this summer.

  9. Won't lie: I'm so excited about Moana. The concept looks interesting, the designs are just right, and I'm personally a HUGE fan of Hawaii.
