ELENA SATINE IN THE SIXTH GUN SF SHOW
In TV news, upcoming sf show THE SIXTH GUN has added mindblowing beauty Elena Satine to the cast! The supernatural Western follows the story of six mythical guns, each with its own other worldly powers. When the Sixth Gun, the most powerful and dangerous of the group, resurfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, Becky Montcrief (Laura Ramsey), dark forces re-awaken. "Deadline" writes that Satine will play the “widow” Missy Hume, a powerful Madame who runs the town of Brimstone kept unnaturally youthful by being in possession of the Fifth Gun. A cold stunningly beautiful woman of great cunning, she is unafraid to use whatever means to collect all Six Guns for her own dark purposes.
ANCIENT ROME SITCOM PLEBS
Here is something hilarious in an epic way, and I mean literally - a new sitcom set in the epic times of ancient Rome! I have already written before about the new comedy PLEBS but it is now ready to premiere at ITV2 in six half hour episodes! PLEBS will be a thoroughly modern comedy with an ancient setting. The series will follow three desperate young men from the suburbs as they try to get laid, hold down jobs and climb the social ladder in the big city – a city that just happens to be Ancient Rome! The series stars Tom Rosenthal (Friday Night Dinner), Joel Fry (White Van Man, Trollied) and Ryan Sampson (Work Experience, After You’ve Gone) as the three young men – Marcus, Stylax and their lazy slave with a major attitude problem, Grumio. Doon Mackichan (Smack The Pony) also stars, as the boys’ ruthless boss, Flavia - an expert manipulator with a private life that's the stuff of legend. A sexy newcomer called Cynthia played by Sophie Colquhoun (The Inbetweeners Movie, Switch) soon joins the boys as she moves into the flat next door along with her sarcastic slave Metella played by Lydia Rose Bewley (The Inbetweeners Movie). Rome is traditionally imagined as the home of emperors and senators, generals and gladiators, a dignified theatre of pomp and ceremony. But what about the little guys, the wasters - new to the big city, stuck in office jobs, unable to get the girls? Unlikely to be immortalized in the annals or memorialized in a frieze, Marcus, Stylax and Grumio are essentially just a bunch of Plebs. And whether they’re wearing togas, or skinny jeans, desperate young men in any period of history are essentially cut from the same cloth.
