JAMES TUPPER, ANNE HECHE TO LEAD 'AFTERMATH' POST APOCALYPTIC SF SERIES! TODD GRINNELL, RITA MORENO, JUSTINA MACHADO LEAD 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' SITCOM REMAKE

SYFY'S 'AFTERMATH' SENDS
JAMES TUPPER, ANNE HECHE INTO THE APOCALYPSE
A series I've already announced earlier this year has rounded up its cast: real life couple James Tupper and Anne Heche will play the lead couple in AFTERMATH post apocalyptic series. The Canadian sf series will air later this summer at SyFy! The two of them will play Joshua and Karen Copeland who, along with their three teenage kids, must battle for survival after civilization comes to an apocalyptic end, triggered by devastating natural disasters, massive storms, meteor strikes, earthquakes and plague and the rise of supernatural creatures. I've reported before that Julie Sarah Stone, Levi Meaden, and Taylor Hickson will play the three siblings coming of age in the Apocalypse.

'ONE DAY AT A TIME' REMAKE
WITH TODD GRINNELL, RITA MORENO AND JUSTINA MACHADO
After resurrecting FULLER HOUSE, another classic sitcom  getting a fresh new version at Netflix is ONE DAY AT A TIME which will this time revolve around a Cuban American family.  Justina Machado, Rita Moreno, Stephen Tobolowsky and Todd Grinnell have been cast already. The 13 episode multi camera sitcom, will follow Penelope (Machado), a recently separated mom who is navigating a new single life while raising her radical teenage daughter and socially adept tween son, with the “help” of her old-school Cuban-born mom and a friends without benefits building manager named Schneider (Grinnell). Being the only character transplanted from the original comedy, Schneider is a charming and over-privileged handyman who lives in his dad’s building rent-free in return for being the building manager.

  1. I'm never sure about remakes - they so often fall flat!
    Aftermath looks worth a look!

  2. Aftermath sounds decent enough, currently reading a book about the same situation.

  3. One Day at a Time sounds like it might be good. Timing is probably pretty good, since Cuba is now open for American visitors, and is getting a lot of attention.

  6. I liked the original "One Day at a Time." But I was young and easily entertained in those days. Don't think I'll give the remake a second look.

  7. I don't think I ever watched the original One Day at a Time. I might like the new one though.

    If there ever really is an apocalypse, I'm going to be totally screwed. My survival skills suck.

  11. Aftermath sounds good, but there's a lot of post-apocalyptic movies/series out there, so it'll have to be new and refreshing :)
