After a whole bunch of amazing new epic TV series that I announced yesterday, here's another one, equally brilliant: Amazon has greenlit four episode mini series CORTES coming from Steven Spielberg's production house based on a half a century old script rewritten by Steven Zaillian who got an Oscar for Schlinder's List! Javier Bardem will take the lead role in the epic saga about the infamous conqueror, Hernan CORTES who, some 500 years ago, led a rebellious expedition to the heart of King Montezuma II’s Aztec empire, connecting two civilizations for the first time and changing the course of history. The producers promise a saga filled with drama and adventure. Cortes was celebrated in Europe as someone who expanded Spanish Empire and viewed as genocidal psycho by Aztec tribes who ended one of the greatest civilizations of that time. About five years ago the spy informed you that Scorsese also planned to make a project on Cortes with Benicio del Toro.

ITV & MAMMOTH SCREEN PLANNING 'TOM JONES' 18TH CENTURY EPIC SERIES? TOM HOLLANDER TO LEAD 'HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME' ITV EPIC SERIES? HISTORICAL FANTASY 'THE MERMAID AND MRS HANCOCK' TO BECOME TV SERIES

   'TOM JONES' EPIC SERIES
ITV TAKING US TO 18TH CENTURY
It could be ITV's new period set saga
Massive news coming from ITV today! They will join Mammoth Screen, who is doing Victoria, Poldark and Vanity Fair, in adapting classic novel TOM JONES into a new period set series! The raunchy 1749 novel from Henry Fielding follows often very scandalous and bawdy sexual exploits and merry adventures of the young and good hearted 18th century foundling Tom Jones in a story full of twists and surprises. As 'Radio Times' reports, the project hasn't been officially greenlit yet, but it is expected to start shooting next year. Screenwriter Gwyneth Hughes who is penning the project thinks the story is ideal for current atmosphere as Tom never sleeps with women who don't want him and is always a perfect gentleman! According to rumours, the studio is negotiating with a big star to take the lead role!

   TOM HOLLANDER TO LEAD
'HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME' EPIC TELEVISION SERIES? 
Speaking of ITV, a few months ago the spy informed you that they are also preparing historical series on THE HUNCH BACK OF NOTRE DAME and
Tom Hollander is also producing the potential series
now they're hired Dr Thorne and Taboo's  Tom Hollander in the titular role! He is also producing the adaptation of Victor Hugo's classic with War and Peace Andrew Davies penning the script. In the series set in 1482 and following the love between hunchback Quasimodo, the Cathedral’s half blind and deaf bell-ringer, and a beautiful woman called Esmerelda, Hollander would play the Hunchback himself. They are currently seeking for foreign production partners.

   'MERMAID & MRS HANCOCK'
TO BE TURNED INTO TV SERIES BY WHITE QUEEN PRODUCERS
The writer got a six digit advance for this one!
Another epic series we can expect is the adaptation of Imogen Hermes Gowar's THE MERMAID AND MRS HANCOCK. Playground Entertainment (Wolf Hall, White Queen) has bought the rights on the 1785 London set novel which follows Jonah Hancock, a prosperous merchant and widower, whose Captain returns having sold Hancock’s ship and cargo in exchange for an extraordinary creature; a mermaid. This mermaid becomes the subject of great curiosity and forges an encounter between Hancock and the desirable courtesan, Angelica Neal. The story describes their intertwined lives. This historical fantasy was sold earlier this year in a race between ten publishing houses for a six number sum.

PREMIUM SPOTLIGHT ON AGATHA CHRISTIE'S 'ORDEAL BY INNOCENCE' MINI SERIES WITH BILL NIGHY, MATTHEW GOODE, ELEANOR TOMLINSON, LUKE TREADAWAY, CHRISTIAN COOKE

   'ORDEAL BY INNOCENCE'
NEW AGATHA CHRISTIE SERIES
The series starts this Easter Sunday
Although we thought Sarah Phelps' adaptation of Witness for the Prosecution was ghastly bad last year at BBC, we did absolutely adore And Then There Were None the year before it, so we are ready to give ORDEAL BY INNOCENCE her latest Agatha Christie project a go when it starts airing Easter Sunday at BBC. It was originally supposed to air at Christmas but it underwent a 12 day reshooting in order to replace Ed Westwick with Christian Cooke in 35 scenes in which he appears in the three part mini series. The reshooting wasn't easy as they had to book the ensemble cast again and shoot in winter instead of summer while also booking all the locations and costumes

again too. They have also changed the ending from the one in Christie's novel for which they've got a special permission from Agatha Christie's estate.

DEATH IN FAMILY & MURDERER IS STILL AMONG THEM 
Wealthy philanthropist Rachel Argyll (Anna Chancellor) is murdered at her family estate Sunny Point. Her adopted son Jack Argyll (Anthony
Rachel's children and Alice Eve as their future stepmother
Boyle), a young delinquent, is arrested for her murder. He vehemently protests his innocence. Eighteen months later, Dr Arthur Calgary (Luke

the truth then the wrong person was arrested for Rachel’s murder. And if Jack is innocent, then it must have been somebody else at Sunny Point. Somebody still out there…Matthew Goode plays Mary's disabled husband Philip.

Luke Treadaway, Matt Lauria, Brandon P. Bell and Stephen Campbell Moore also star in the WW2 drama in which Keeley Hawes will play her exacting boss at the civil service, who becomes an unlikely role model of what a woman can achieve in a man's world. This means Keeley will have a series within the same year on each of UK's three biggest channels.

'HARROW ALLEY' 17TH CENTURY HORROR SERIES AT HBO
Emma will also write the small screen adaptation
Meanwhile, another great British thespian Emma Thompson will produce a period set horror TV series based on a long lost script HARROW ALLEY over at HBO! The story is set during the black plague in the 17th century and follows an English town as it deteriorates. It revolves around the fortunes of two men, likeable but lawless rogue Ratsey and well meaning alderman Harry, who are both trying to survive the dangers of the time. The script was originally written by classic Hollywood writer Walter Newman and is often, as 'Deadline' reports, used in film classes becoming in certain way legendary.

MELISSA MCCARTHY IS UNRECOGNISABLE IN BRILLIANT 'CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?' TRAILER AND POSTER

  'CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?'
 HER GREATEST WORK, WILL BE HER BIGGEST CRIME!
The movie is out this October at awards time
I just have one trailer for you today, but it is really good! You probably won't recognize Melissa McCarthy in the first trailer for CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? which is out this October based on a true story as revealed in American forger's Lee Israel's biography.

CAN YOU FORGIVE ME? is the true story of best selling celebrity biographer (and friend to cats) Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy), who made her living in the 1970s and '80s profiling the likes of Katherine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen.

COMEDY FRIDAY: JAKE MCDORMAN JOINS 'MURPHY BROWN' REVIVAL AS HER SON! JOSH LAWSON TO LEAD 'WELCOME TO NEIGHBOURHOOD' SITCOM! DAX SHEPARD JOINS ASHTON KUTCHER'S 'RANCH'

  JAKE MCDORMAN JOINS 
'MURPHY BROWN' CBS REVIVAL AS HER GROWN UP SON
Jake McDorman will be Murphy's son Avery
TV comedy news today as we are in the middle of the casting season for new sitcom pilots! I've announced recently that MURPHY BROWN is returning to the small screens at CBS thirty years after its end, and now we have Jake McDorman cast as her grown up son! Candice Bergen returns as news anchor to a world of cable news, social media, fake news and a very different political and cultural climate, with all of the old cast returning too, from Faith Ford and Joe Regalbuto to Grant Shaud! McDorman will play her millennial adult journalist son Avery, who is following in his mother’s footsteps, perhaps too closely, and has his mother’s competitive spirit and quick wit. Nik Dodani joins the old cast as Pat, the director of social media for the news show who is tasked with bringing Murphy and the gang into the 21st century.

JOSH LAWSON TO LEAD 'WELCOME TO  NEIGHBOURHOOD' 
Josh Lawson will lead new CBS sitcom
After casting Cedric The Entertainer, CBS has added another lead to their multicam sitcom pilot WELCOME TO THE NEIGHBOUR HOOD. Josh Lawson will play Dave, the nicest guy in the Midwest who moves his family into a tough neighbourhood in L.A. where not everyone appreciates his extreme neighbourliness. Cedric will play his next door neighbour who regards the new family with disdain and as a pack of interlopers, while Tichina Arnold will play his wife who judges them  by their knowledge of Scripture (non existent) and their church attendance record (shockingly poor!).

  DAX SHEPARD TO JOIN 
ASHTON KUTCHER'S 'THE RANCH'
Dax Shepard will guest star in about five episodes
And the third blond hunk for today will move to a ranch! You've probably heard that Danny Masterson will no longer be a part of Netflix's multicam sitcom THE RANCH and he will now be replaced by Dax Shepard in the comedy revolving around the dysfunctional Bennett family on their Colorado ranch! He will join the second part of the 20 episode third season as a former soldier who has come to town with some history concerning the Iron River Ranch. He meets the Bennetts and forms an immediate bond with Colt (Ashton Kutcher) and his father Beau (Sam Elliott), but his past has a way of catching up with him. Dax won't be a regular, however, as he will be the lead in another sitcom, BLESS THIS MESS at Fox in which he and Lake Bell play a NY couple which moves to Nebraska to live a simpler life. It doesn’t work out like they planned.
