Coronavirus is everywhere; David Lynch goes to Netflix; + more

Every weekday, TMINE brings you the latest TV news from around the world

Appropriately enough for Friday 13th, most of the news today is about how production is temporarily shutting down on virtually every TV show, theatre and movie currently being made or about to be made (NBCUniversal is shutting down 35 shows, for example), as well as all the upfronts. I can’t list them all, so just assume that that show you like? It’s temporarily shutting down

But here’s what non-coronavirus news there is:

Internet TV

New US TV shows

  • HBO Max green lights: pilot based on the life of Julia Child, Julia, with Sarah Lancashire, Tom Hollander, Bebe Neuwirth, Isabella Rossellini et al

New US TV show casting


  • Rob Buckley

    I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
