It’s a time of many new projects in the television business with Netflix picking up an Office spinoff movie, Curb Your Enthusiasm returning to HBO, and Katie Holmes getting into character for the next Kennedy’s installment. That and more in today’s headlines.
1. Netflix will distribute Ricky Gervais’The Office spinoff movie. About time! [Deadline]
2. Watch the first trailer for the Pete’s Dragon remake. Serious lack of child endangerment in this teaser though. Bring 1977 back! [Vulture]
3. Curb Your Enthusiasm is coming back for Season 9. Larry David has to do something now that Barry Sanders has dropped out of the race. [Medium]
4. Joel McHale and Sarah Hyland will star in Hulu’s Dimension 404. McHale is really cornering the streaming service sitcom casting market at this point. [Variety]
5. Katie Holmes looks just like Jackie Onassis in new photos from The Kennedy’s: After Camelot. Those iconic high-wasted pants and shift dresses certainly help. [Huffington Post]
6. Younger was renewed for Season 4 before Season 3 even premieres. We will never be mad about more Hillary Duff and Sutton Foster in our lives. [Variety]
