EMPEROR OF MEXICO
NEW HISTORICAL TV SERIES
Well, colour me interested as I have never heard of him nor of Mexico ever being an empire: as Deadline reports, Big Love creators will turn
Fernando del Paso novel, Noticias del Imperio into a TV series about Maximilian of Habsburg and his wife Carlota and final dramatic attempt of the European monarchy to impose its will in the New World. Production will travel to Mexico, Paris, Vienna, and Rome following the Austrian archduke and his spouse’s, born the Princess of Belgium, ill fated tenure as Emperor and Empress of Mexico during the Second Mexican Empire (1863-1867), and their marriage, as well as the lives of Emperor Napoleon III and Empress Eugenie de Montijo of France; Empress Elizabeth and Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria; and Mexican President Benito Juarez and First Lady Margarita Maza Juarez.

THE FARMER AND THE BELLE
And here is another festive delight for you: new Christmas romantic comedy THE FARMER AND THE BELLE: SAVING SANTALAND will be released on all digital platforms and cinemas November 19th! It follows
Belle Winters (Jenn Gotzon, who does not even remotely look like a model), a tired NYC based model who’s worried about aging out of the industry. One evening in her apartment, Belle remembers a charm bracelet with Biblical beauty affirmations that her grandmother gave her when she was a child. Belle no longer has the bracelet but thinks it might be at Santaland, a Christmas farm where she played in her youth. Desperate to find the bracelet, Belle sets out to find it, and finds herself in the process. Jim E. Chandler plays the hunky male lead and he and Gotzon are married in real life as well.
|The film will be available later this month|
