'OUT OF AFRICA'
 TO BE TURNED INTO TV SERIES
Here's another period set new TV series for us: Karen Blixen's famous memoirs OUT OF AFRICA, which were once turned into a classic movie with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, will be turned into a TV series. The Night Manager's Susan Bier is to produce and also direct the small screen adaptation which  recounts the seventeen years that Blixen spent in Africa in the Ngong Hills of Kenya during the last decades of the British Empire as she searched to find her role and voice in a changing world. Heyday Television, known for Harry Potter, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and Gravity and Paddington, is producing.

'THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES'
TRAILER WITH PAULINE COLLINS, JOAN COLLINS, FRANCO NERO
Speaking of strong ladies, check out the trailer for lovely comedy drama THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES out next month starring acting legends Joan Collins, Pauline Collins, Franco Nero and Joely Richardson.
Determined to gatecrash her ex-lover's funeral on glamorous French hideaway Ile-de-Re, former Hollywood siren Helen (Joan Collins) escapes her London retirement home with the help of Priscilla (Pauline Collins), a repressed English housewife stuck in a bad marriage. Pooling their limited resources, they hit the road together by coach, ferry, car and foot in a race to get to the funeral on time, becoming entangled in a love triangle with a reclusive Italian millionaire (Franco Nero) along the way. On this unforgettable journey, they find true friendship in one another - and have the time of their lives.

  1. I hope I'm stirring up trouble and having the time of our lives with my bestie when I'm that old. Maybe have a little fling with an Italian billionaire too ;) Or not, since that would mean Jason's dead, but still, one can fantasize about one, right?

    1. Don't forget to invite me on your senior escapades if I'm alive then, which I probably won't be :) We shall rent a vila in Santorini and paint the town red in our wheelchairs! I bet Joan and Pauline had fun with Franco, they probably know each other from their young days

    2. But of course you will be coming along! It wouldn't be a crazy adventure if we didn't have dashing Dezzy along for the ride now would it? You'll live as long as me, so let's do our best to make it to see those gray hairs and wheelchairs, okay?

  2. "So is your wife dead or just gone shopping?" That made me laugh a lot harder than it should have. "The Time of Their Lives" looks absolutely delightful! Must see it!
