Netflix Orders Live Action Richie Rich Series

In: Donovan, TV Shows

I’m a little ashamed I’m going to say this, but the second I discovered this, I shouted out in glee… inside of course ;) Richie Rich was one of my favorite comics to collect as a child.

The world’s richest kid is getting the Hollywood treatment once again. The classic cartoon character previously inspired two animated series and the live-action 1994 film starring Macaulay Culkin.

Netflix is altering the backstory a little for its adaptation. Richie Rich won’t be the son of a wealthy industrialist. Instead, he’ll be self-sufficient. As a result of inventing a “cool new green technology” he’s earned a trillion dollars. The show will follow his adventures with his friends as he “moves into a decked-out mansion and instantly starts living the most awesome life ever,” reads the press release. Check out the cast after the jump.

Who knew 13th century China could be so exciting and sexy for that matter? Netflix just unveiled the first trailer for their new series Marco Polo and it looks like it’ll be the streaming service’s next big hit.

Newcomer Lorenzo Richelmy plays the titular explorer. The series follows Polo on his adventures through Kublai Khan’s court. As the release states, we get a glimpse into Marco’s “greatest adventure of all.” Benedict Wong plays Chinese emperor in the 10-episode period original series. It promises to be a thrilling, violent and entertaining affair.

The entire first season will be available to binge watch starting at 12:01 a.m. PT on Friday, December 12 on Netflix. I’m definitely going to carve out some time to watch it during the hectic holiday season. Check out the trailer below.

They said they’ll be there for you, and pretty soon, they’ll only be a click away. Netflix announced it’ll start streaming all 236 episodes from the sitcom’s 10 seasons starting January 1, 2015. That’s roughly 83 hours. I know how I’ll be nursing my New Years Eve hangover ;) Sure, I have all the DVDs, but this is far more convenient. What can I say? I’m a lazy bitch ;)

The internet streaming service shared the awesome news with a video featuring The Rembrandts singing the comedy’s theme song. Naturally, Gunther makes an appearance in the clip, serving java as he’s done throughout the series’ run.

As if Friends being available whenever I want wasn’t fantastic enough, fans will get a chance to check out the “lost” episodes where Joey (Matt LeBlanc) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) “became a thing.” Who else is excited?

Check out the video announcement below, along with Warner Bros’ recent clip celebrating 236 seconds of the show and NBC’s look back at the sitcom before the series finale aired. Enjoy.

Netflix Inks Four Movie Deal With Adam Sandler

Netflix is really serious about getting into the original movie-making game. Just days after announcing its first original feature film, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, the Internet streaming media service makes another announcement that bypasses the traditional theatrical release system.

Netflix has worked a deal with Adam Sandler to make four original feature films. Had this been inked during Sandler’s hey day this would’ve been epic. However, given Sandler’s rocky box office record as of late, it might not sound like the most savviest of deals. In Netflix’s defense, it claims that 48-year-old comedian is still popular.

“People love Adam’s films on Netflix and often watch them again and again. His appeal spans across viewers of all ages — everybody has a favorite movie, everyone has a favorite line — not just in the US but all over the world,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

This October, Netflix loses its filter. Chelsea Handler brings her raw, raucous, and raunchy comedic stylings to the streaming service provider. Filmed in Chicago during her latest tour, Uganda Be Kidding Me recounts Handler’s hilarious romp through Africa.

The comedy special is part of Chelsea’s deal with Netflix which includes a new talk show set to premiere in 2016 and four docu-comedy specials produced by 39-year-old comedienne set to premiere in 2015.

Check out the recently-released trailer below which finds Chelsea cracking jokes about PETA, AIDS, rappers and safari guides all in under a couple of minutes. I can’t wait for the special premiering on Friday, October 10.

With Orange Is The New Black and House Of Cards nabbing multiple nominations, Netflix proved they were a force to be reckoned with at the Primetime Emmys. Is the daddy of all awards show- the Oscars- their next target? It would appear so.

In the first deal of its kind, Netflix is teaming up with the Weinstein Company for the first major motion picture to make its debut on the streaming service. For all you trivia buffs, be sure to commit this to memory. The film they’re producing is the sequel to the 2000 martial arts hit film, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

“The moviegoing experience is evolving quickly and profoundly, and Netflix is unquestionably at the forefront of that movement,” producer Harvey Weinstein says in a statement. “We are tremendously excited to be continuing our great relationship with Netflix and bringing to fans all over the world the latest chapter in this amazing and intriguing story.”

Entertainment Weekly highlights television’s best 25 characters for their latest issue. To celebrate, the publication convinced two actors to take on different personas for two collector covers.

Kevin Spacey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus swap roles for a gender-bending shoot. Both actors do drag to channel each other’s popular characters on House of Cards and Veep respectively.

Julia dressed as HoC’s Frank Underwood is far more convincing than Kevin as Veep‘s Selina Meyer. Spacey does not make for one pretty girl. Check out the other cover below.
