PREMIUM SPOTLIGHT ON 'THE ORVILLE' NEW SF COMEDY SERIES WITH SETH MACFARLANE! CHARLIZE THERON TO GUEST STAR!

NEW SF COMEDY SERIES
I'm sure that you, just like your trustworthy spy, are among those that found themselves appalled after seeing the trailer for CBS's new Star
The series will premiere September 10 and 17th
Trek: Discovery television series, which disappointed so many trekkies around the globe with its almost offensive offer of non stop explosions, violence and fire, not to mention the randomly chosen cast. Star Trek is all about science, psychology, anthropology, other cultures not about beating some aliens up, so the new Star Trek series, which is heading towards becoming a major flop, seemed like a betrayal for most of the fans and I've noticed hordes of them saying they're more excited about Fox's THE ORVILLE than about the new adventures of Star Fleet ships. If I tell you THE ORVILLE is a comedy, you will understand the level of their

occupies the space Star Trek left behind en route to dystopia, opting for hopeful optimism of sf instead of the currently modern Star Trek grimness.

'VITA AND VIRGINIA'
 GEMMA ARTERTON TO GO LESBIAN WITH VIRGINIA WOOLFE
Gemma Arterton will play Vita Sackville West
Literary Monday for you today, minions, starting with an info coming from Great Britain about a very lesbifriendly movie project on Virginia Woolf! Yes, I'm not kidding. Gemma Arterton is set to portray a famous novelist in a biopic titled VITA AND VIRGINIA which wants to show a different side of Woolfe. It brings a fascinating true story about the love affair between socialite and popular author Vita Sackville West and literary icon Virginia Woolf! Last I've heard Vita will be played by Gemma while The Night Manager's Elizabeth Debicki is to play Virginia Woolf. As 'Daily Mail' reports the film is based on Eileen Atkins’s adaptation of her epistolary play, which she created from the almost 20 years of correspon- dence between Woolf and Sackville West. Virginia, apparently, based her famous androgynous titular character Orlando on Sackville West which is why Vita's son called the novel the longest love letter in history.

BBC'S NEW 'KING LEAR' CASTS
ANTHONY HOPKINS, EMMA THOMPSON, EMILY WATSON, JIM BROADBENT AND OTHERS
Speaking of British drama, 'Daily Mail' also reports that Anthony Hopkins will play the lead role in BBC 2's TV movie on Shakespeare's
