Confirmed: Netflix is Rebooting “Unsolved Mysteries”!

Thanks to its arrival on streaming platforms, the classic Robert Stack-hosted “Unsolved Mysteries” experienced something of a renaissance back in 2017, and at the time, creators John Cosgrove and Terry Dunn Meurer had noted (during a Reddit AMA session) that they were pitching networks on the idea of making brand new episodes of the show.

“We are actively talking to a couple of broadcasters who have shown interest, and we’re very optimistic that we’ll have something by way of new episodes by the end of the year,” Cosgrove subsequently told Decider in 2017. “It’s too early to go into much detail, but we’ve had our research producers look into possible stories and they’ve found some excellent ones which can be ready to go quickly.”

Oh Hey, It’s Our First Look At Zachary Quinto In NOS4A2

Zachary Quinto, is that you, bro? It is indeed the artist occasionally known as Nu Spock. Buried underneath all that old geezer makeup is Quinto in EW’s exclusive first look at AMC’s adaptation of the Joe Hill novel NOS4A2. In the series, which premieres sometime in 2019, Quinto plays the villainous Charlie Manx – a vampire-esque antagonist who basically sucks the souls out of children keep himself looking young and spry. Using his supernatural Rolls Royce Wraith (which has a vanity plate reading “NOS4A2” – like Nosferatu), he takes the kiddos to a hellscape known as “Christmasland,” where they become dead-eyed, murderous little shits that do his evil bidding. Enter Vic McQueen (played in the series by Ashleigh Cummings), a young woman whose wildly creative mind may hold the key to stopping Manx.

Based on Entertainment Weekly’s description of the plot, the series might diverge from the source material quite a bit:

Ashleigh Cummings plays the show’s heroine Vic McQueen, who is about to enter her senior year at a high school in Massachusetts. “She’s a working-class kid who has such a creative mind that it actually gives her a kind of superpower,” says showrunner Jami O’Brien. “Charlie Manx becomes aware of her and realizes that she may be bad news for him, so he has to figure out pretty quickly what to do about her.”

‘The Black Tapes’ Supernatural Drama Based On Podcast In Works At NBC From Matthew Arnold

NBC has put in development a supernatural drama based on The Black Tapes podcast, from Emerald City co-creator Matthew Arnold, podcast creators Paul Bae and Terry Miles, Entertainment 360 and Universal TV.

Written and executive produced by Arnold, Bae and Miles, The Black Tapes adaptation follows a journalist’s investigations into the unexplained supernatural mysteries caught on tape by a skeptical scientist. Each week the two of them embark on a journey exploring the literal and figurative ghosts that haunt them both.

Guymon Casady and Ben Forkner executive produce for 360 Productions. Universal TV is the studio.

In the podcast, host Alex Reagan narrates a nonfiction-styled fictional story over multiple episodes, using a format that has been compared to Serial. The story begins as a biography of paranormal investigator Dr. Richard Strand, an “evangelical skeptic” on a mission to debunk all claims of the supernatural. Reagan becomes interested in his collection of unsolved cases, which she begins calling his “Black Tapes,” and the podcast evolves into an exploration of these cases, paranormal culture, and the mysterious life of Dr. Strand.

Ranking the Sexiest Werewolves on Television

What is it about werewolves that makes them so damn seductive? Maybe it’s the tortured soul angle. Maybe it’s the sense that they’re one full moon (or not, depending on the lore) from ripping you apart — but like, in a spicy, fun way. Actually, you know what? It’s probably a combination of the uncontrollable animal appetite and all the rampant nudity. “Oh no, I transformed, completely out of nowhere on this, the night of the full moon, and now all my clothes are ripped and torn and I’m all exposed,” cries the wolf-person. “Yay!” cries the viewer.

In honor of the unabashed display of naked bodies turning into horrible monsters and then back into sexy (human) beasts again, here’s a list of the very sexiest werewolves of TV.
