EMILY WATSON TO RULE BENE GESSERIT IN DUNE: THE SISTERHOOD HBO MAX SF TV SERIES! SEE FLORENCE PUGH, CIARAN HINDS, TOM BURKE IN THE WONDER PERIOD SET DRAMA! PARAMOUNT ORDERS FRASIER RETURN WITH KELSEY GRAMMER

  EMILY WATSON TO LEAD  
DUNE: SISTERHOOD TV SERIES
Just when we thought this project was dead as dodo, Variety reports that Emily Watson has been cast in DUNE: SISTERHOOD series at HBO Max, which, based on Frank Herbert novels, will follow the Bene Gesserit, a mysterious order of women. Watson will play Valya Harkonnen, while
Emily Watson and Shirley Henderson are the first to be cast
Shirley Henderson will be Tula Harkonnen, two sisters who have risen to power in the Sisterhood, a secret organization of women who will go on to become the Bene Gesserit. Sadly, Denis Villeneuve, who atrociously helmed the lifeless and dull borefest of the recent Dune movie is executive producing this one too. 
 
  RETURN OF FRASIER  
OFFICIAL AT PARAMOUNT PLUS
Paramount Plus has officially ordered a ten episode return of classic multicam sitcom FRASIER with Kelsey Grammer as psychiatrist and radio host Frasier Crane. After starting in Boston within Cheers and moving to Seattle in Frasier, he will now move to a new city and will be surrounded by new characters, with original Frasier cast members not appearing as series regulars but making guest appearances. The show won 37 Emmys in 11 seasons.

  THE WONDER TRAILER  
SENDS FLORENCE PUGH TO EIRE
The film is out November 16th
Speaking of things lifeless and overrated, check out Florence Pugh in the first trailer for THE WONDER period set thriller movie which will stream on Netflix November 6th. Ciaran Hinds, Tom Burke, Toby Jones also star in the film set in 1862 just after the Great Famine, with Pugh playing English Nightingale Nurse Lib Wright, who is called to a devout community in the Irish Midlands to examine 11-year-old Anna (Kíla Lord Cassidy), who claims to have not eaten for four months, surviving on “manna from heaven.” Lib is determined to find out what’s really going on as Anna’s health deteriorates.

  1. Oh, something on Netflix for me to check out. You know I never watched Frasier.

    1. It was nice but probably not your cup of tea.

  2. Frasier was quite the popular show, but I never did watch any of it. Since it has a whole new cast, I am sure I could watch this reboot and still understand what's going on, I would think.

    1. Indeed. I watched a couple of seasons intermittently, it was never my fave sitcom, but similar to Mad About You it was watchable and had its moments. It was back in the days when they made sitcoms for intellectual audience not just for daft idiots and these modern morons who only like sick and stupid. If it appeared today it would flop as soon as the first episode would end.

    2. Mad About You was another one that I never watched either. Will and Grace, Raymond, Two and a Half Men... I didn't watch much back then, working 3 jobs and raising kids. I think I missed out on intellectual viewing and what a shame, because so much of what's out there today is pure crap.

    3. I hated both Raymond and Two and a Half and also How I met Your Mother. And despised Married With Children.

    4. Then I guess I didn't miss much!

  3. I like Kelsey Grammer in TV series Boss...not really a fan of Fraiser, but I do LOVE Cheers.

    1. It is interesting that I do not remember him much from Cheers, although I do know he was in it. It is fun when they take a character from one sitcom and move it onto another, like with Phoebe and her sister Ursula who moved from Mad About You to Friends.
