ALF reboot no longer moving foward

Alf appeared on the small screen back in the late 80’s.

Alf

ALF, the hit sitcom centered a furry extraterrestrial, had a planned reboot. Now, TV Line is reporting that we won’t be seeing the Alien Life Form from Melmac any time soon as the project i s mostly likely ‘dead’.

“Cats far and wide can breathe a sigh of relief. I’m hearing the proposed reboot is not moving forward at this time after failing to attract a suitor”, mentions the section Ask Ausiello on the TV Line reports.

One of the concepts for the new series involved ALF “emerging from Area 51–where he has been held captive since the original series finale–and observing how much the world has changed since that time.”

Reports indicate that the death of the project is due to networks not being interested. This is kind of surprising because everyone seems to love reboots and remakes these days.

The show originally ran for four seasons and produced 99 episodes. This included three one-hour episodes that were divided into two parts for syndication, totaling 102 episodes.

Alf was a hit t.v. show back in the late 80’and early 90’s. It told the story of a smart-mouthed creature, ALF (aka Alien Life Form). He then crash-lands in a suburban garage, leaving his spaceship beyond repair. He’s ugly, he’s short, he’s got a bad attitude.

The family that found the alien took in the furry creature. He then proceeds to of course, comment on humankind and tries to eat the cat — a delicacy on his home planet of Melmac.

Back in August, word got out that Warner Bros. was looking to make either an ALF reboot or sequel.
ALF was created by Paul Fusco and Tom Patchett. Fusco was also the puppeteer and voice of ALF.

Netflix Cancels American Vandal

Netflix has canceled true-crime documentary satire American Vandal just after two seasons.

American Vandal will not return for a third season. We’re very grateful to the creators, writers, cast and crew for bringing their innovative comedy to Netflix and to the fans and critics who embraced its unique and unconventional humor.”

The news comes after Netflix canceled Marvel series Iron Fist and Luke Cage after both aired their second seasons.

But fans shouldn’t be completely worried. This might not be the last we will see of Peter Maldonado and Sam Ecklund.

CBS TV Studios, which produced the series, has already received multiple incoming calls from buyers about potentially saving the series with a third season somewhere else, EW has learned.

That would be a first for a Netflix series, especially after the platform has become known for picking up series that would not get greenlit elsewhere.

The first season, which aired in September 2017, focused on an investigation at a Southern California high school into who drew dicks on 27 cars in the parking lot.

Jimmy Tatro played Dylan Maxwell, who was accused of spray painting the genitalia at the beginning of the series.

The second season relocated to an elite private high school in Washington, and centered on who was behind a series of pranks involving laxatives by someone calling themselves the “Turd Burglar.”

The series was created by Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda. Dan Lagana executive produced the series alongside Joe Farrell for Funny or Die and Ari Lubet, Josh Lieberman and Michael Rotenberg for 3Arts.

Netflix se ha unido a la BBC para producir una nueva serie simplemente titulada Drácula. El anuncio vino por parte del portal Variety y estos reportaron que la serie estará siendo realizada por los creadores de Sherlock.

Los creadores de Sherlock, Steven Moffatt y Mark Gatiss, han estado desarrollando el proyecto con la productora Sue Vertue durante los últimos meses. Se espera que el programa tome el formato de tres episodios de 90 minutos. Una fórmula que va a la par con la forma en que está estructurado Sherlock.

“Siempre ha habido historias sobre el gran mal. Lo que tiene de especial a Drácula es que Bram Stoker le dio al mal su propio héroe”, indicaron Gatiss y Moffat dentro del reportaje.

La nueva serie se establecerá en el Londres victoriano a fines del siglo XIX. De momento no hay un actor para que interprete al icónico vampiro de Transilvania.

Drácula es una de las figuras de mayor reconocimiento a nivel mundial. Su personaje ha sido llevado a la pantalla grande en interpretaciones para recordar. Entre los actores que han sido elegidos para interpretar al legendario personaje han sido Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee y Gary Oldman.

La historia del reconocido vampiro fue creada por el autor irlandés Bram Stoker. La novela cuenta la historia de cuando Drácula hace el intento de mudarse de Transilvania a Inglaterra. Esto con el fin de poder encontrar sangre nueva y difundir la maldición de los no muertos. Gracias a ello surge la batalla entre Drácula y un pequeño grupo de hombres y una mujer liderada por el profesor Abraham Van Helsing.

Drácula será producida ejecutivamente por Gatiss, Moffat, Sue Vertue y Ben Irving. La serie será distribuida por BBC One y Netflix dentro del Reino Unido. En otras partes del mundo será a través de BBC Studios para Hartswood Films
