Also back in recurring roles are MyAnna Buring (Kill List) as Tissaia, Tom Canton (Good Karma Hospital) as Filavandrel, Lilly Cooper (Peterloo) as Murta, Jeremy Crawford (Titans) as Yarpin Zigrin, Eamon Farren (Twin Peaks) as Cahir, Mahesh Jadu (Marco Polo) as Vilgefortz, Terence Maynard (Cursed) as Artorius, Lars Mikkelson (House of Cards) as Stregobor, Mimi Ndiweni (Black Earth Rising) as Fringilla Vigo, Royce Pierreson (Judy) as Istredd, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte (Hunter Street) as Dara, Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter) as Triss Merigold, Therica Wilson Read (Young Wallender) as Sabrina.

“The reaction to season one of The Witcher set a high bar for adding new talent for the second season,” says showrunner and Executive Producer, Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. 

Sophie Holland and her casting team have once again found the very best people to embody these characters, and in the hands of these accomplished directors, we’re excited to see these new stories come to life.”

The Witcher: Meditating in a Dungeon

The Witcher Season 1 has amassed an approval rating of 67% on Rotten Tomatoes. Netflix recently called The Witcher its best new show in a letter to shareholders. 

The streamer claims that 76 million member households watched The Witcher within four weeks of debuting.

This is a big number, but it doesn’t mean these households watched the whole episodes. Instead, it is people who have streamed at least a small portion.

Imagine development initiative to launch in Melbourne

Writer development initiative Imagine Impact, created by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Tyler Mitchell, will launch in Melbourne -the first time the program will be run outside of the US.

Operating in association with Gentle Giant Media Group and Screen Australia, the accelerator program discovers, cultivates and empowers creative storytellers.

“Impact Australia will bring the focus of the global film and television industry to Australia and our tremendous storytellers, positioning Melbourne and Australia as a premiere destination for original IP and content,” said Greg Basser, Chairman and CEO, Gentle Giant Media Group. “Impact Australia will provide an amazing opportunity for Australian writers to not only learn from some of the best in the world, but also get their Australian stories in front of key decision-makers in the global creative industry.”

“In assisting Imagine Impact to come to Australia, we are seeking to enable Australian creators to get access to an innovative development framework that is outside the standard screen agency funding model,” said Graeme Mason, CEO of Screen Australia. “Imagine Impact has proved to be incredibly successful at empowering talent and connecting great ideas with a pathway to audience, so we encourage Australian creators to take advantage of this chance to work with market leaders.”

“The global screen industry is growing at an unprecedented rate and the demand for content and new ideas has never been higher. The Victorian Government is committed to supporting our screen ecosystem and investing in our screenwriting talent is an important part of that work,” said Minister for Creative Industries, Martin Foley. “Attracting Imagine Impact to Melbourne is a coup that reinforces Victoria’s position as a screen leader and a creative hub. This program will give our local writers the opportunity to foster international networks and create dynamic screen stories that will go on to be seen by people across the globe.”

“The power of Imagine Impact is global and we’ve set our sights on bringing our innovative approach to discovering, cultivating and empowering creators to Australia,” said Tyler Mitchell, Head of Imagine Impact. “The country is recognised for its robust film and television industry made up of a community who passionately support its creators. It was a natural move for expansion, and to have the support of Screen Australia and leading entertainment entities sets Impact Australia up for success.”

Applications will open on 3 March 2020 to Australian writers, with the eight-week mentorship program beginning on 8 June 2020.

Similar to its United States counterpart, Impact Australia will actively seek fresh story perspectives and help writers create their best work while simultaneously leveraging technology for direct access to the global entertainment marketplace. During the program, ‘Creators’ will be paired with a ‘Shaper’ (world-class screen and TV writers) to help craft their story and prepare them for Pitch Day with the goal of selling their project. Impact Australia will give participating Creators everything they need to succeed, including a stipend to allow them to relocate to Melbourne and focus on their projects for the eight-week intensive program.

Taking a Silicon Valley accelerator approach, combined with Imagine Entertainment’s decades of Hollywood heritage, Imagine Impact was started by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Tyler Mitchell in 2018 to democratize the Hollywood system. To date, three programs have been successfully completed and Impact boasts an alumni class of 72 Creators, some of whose projects have been picked up by Netflix, Legendary, Amblin Entertainment and/or signed by major agencies and management companies, including; WME, CAA, UTA, Verve, Anonymous Content, Management 360, and Lit Entertainment.

Australians have previously participated in Impact’s Los Angeles program, including Victorian creative duo Lynda Heys & Steve Turnbull and Philip Tarl Denson. Based in Darwin Australia, Denson developed his television series Anomaly through Impact and now has a producer and showrunner attached to the project, which is set-up at Legendary TV. He was also recently funded to produce Australian comedy series Fracketty Frack: It’s the Frackpocalypse.

Principal finance for Impact Australia courtesy of Screen Australia, along with principal partner, Film Victoria. The program is also being supported by Screen NSW, Screen Queensland, Screenwest, South Australian Film Corporation, Screen Territory, Screen Canberra and Screen Tasmania.

NBC Announces Fate of The Blacklist

The Blacklist is not going anywhere. 

NBC has just placed an order for The Blacklist Season 8, set to air during the 2020-21 TV season. 

“Congratulations to our incredible cast, producers and crew, all of whom continue to reach excellence week in and week out,” Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming at NBC Entertainment, said in a statement.

Meeting In Secret - The Blacklist

“We couldn’t be more excited to continue Red and Liz’s story into Season 8.”

The Blacklist is led by James Spader who plays wanted criminal Raymond Reddington and Megan Boone who plays FBI profiler Liz Keen.

Liz is Fun - The Blacklist Season 6 Episode 22

The two have a complicated relationship that has unspooled over the last seven seasons, and it seems things will be even more complicated. 

Throughout Liz’s search for answers about Red’s real identity, Red has worked the FBI with tracking down dangerous and elusive criminals.

Diego Klattenhoff, Harry Lennix, Amir Arison, and Hisham Tawfiq are also part of the show’s cast. 

The Blacklist Season 7 is currently averaging 3.9 million viewers and a 0.5 rating — down just 10% season-to-season. 

Red Isn't the Only One - The Blacklist Season 7 Episode 9

The Blacklist ranks 12th out of the 19 scripted series on NBC, and comes in ahead of Good Girls and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist

Given that the series airs on Fridays, these are good ratings. Add in the fact that The Blacklist has always been a robust performer on the DVR and online, the series is still a viable option for the Peacock network. 

The Blacklist joins This is Us, New Amsterdam, Superstore, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine in the renewals at NBC. 

The network is saying goodbye to The Good Place and Will & Grace this season, while Sunnyside has been canceled, and Bluff City Law is not expected to return. 

Fellow Friday series, Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector is also expected to snag a season 2 renewal. 

Red Witnesses Death - The Blacklist Season 7 Episode 10

The Chicago trifecta is expected to return, along with Manifest and Law & Order: SVU. 

Good Girls, despite low ratings should be renewed thanks to a lucrative streaming deal with Netflix.
