Stop, Start Continues

StartTV_My_Start_Story_part_2_010

The Start TV network has posted some additional items on their website referencing Kathryn.

The channel is very much focussed on women in and around the media.  All but one of the main shows they broadcast is female lead.  Only Early Edition starring Kyle Chandler (Catch-22) gets a look in, and he’s relegated to the appropriately middle of the night slots.  Cold Case gets televised back-to-back in mid-afternoon double.

First up is a brief article previewing a series of pieces celebrating women in TV ahead of the Emmy Awards, which happens on Sunday (22nd September).  After a quick recap of Kathryn’s career (so far) they link back to the interview we covered here back in July.  Not surprisingly that interview was not a complete transcript of the conversation which took place, and they have been holding bits back for use in these extra items.  It ends with this quote:

“I never really looked at Cold Case as an overnight success. I feel like I had 13, 14, 15 years of being an apprentice or a journeyman. I never underestimate the small steps in learning to become an actor.” After a pause, she added, “or learning how to do anything in life.”

Next is a much longer feature covering ten women, including Kathryn and Tracie Thoms (Kat Miller in CC), that work in and around TV.  There are actors, producers and writers.

I assume that Start TV will continue to post pieces like these in the future and I will endeavour to highlight the ones involving Kathryn when they do.

Cheerleader Resurrected

doac_27As I started to put this post together the obvious subject line to use was ‘Resurrection Of A Cheerleader’.  It tied in very nicely with the Death Of A Cheerleader film title.  Turns out I thought it was a great title back in February when I first used it!  Mind like a sieve sometimes!

This news I recently found of the Lifetime channel in the US, broadcasting a remake of the 1994 movie sometimes called A Friend To Die For yesterday, should have been less of a surprise as I’d previously reported this same thing.  So often I post about the announcement of a project Kathryn is due to star in, following up some time later when it gets released or other news breaks on the subject.  I initially took my earlier article on this 2019 TV movie as a ‘in development’ item.  As I said, very forgetful.

Nope.  Turns out February was the début.  Not sure why some outlets are reporting the Labor Day weekend showing as a first.  It did form part of a cheerleader themed week of films (Denise Richards of Cougars, Inc. stars in one of them).  Some of of them were premières, so maybe that’s where the confusion lies.

Anyway, Kathryn got some mentions as a star in the 1994 film.  Sadly she didn’t make a return in this one, Kellie Martin (one of the teenagers before) did guest star as a police detective though.

If, for some reason, you want to see this remake then it is no doubt being shown often enough on Lifetime so you won’t have to wait long for it to come around again.  They’ll probably re-do it again in a few years.  Perhaps Kathryn can be persuaded to be in that one.

Sorry to have bothered you.

The original Death Of A Cheerleader was covered 8 years ago on KM UK HERE.

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – August 2019

tracie_thoms_001_430x180August can be a limited month for showbiz news.  Lots of people are on holiday, the blockbuster movies have largely come and gone, and the TV series are well into production for the autumn/fall start.  We’ll do what we can though for our latest CCCC-up, covering careers of the other Cold Case cast members.

It has been a couple of months since we put Tracie Thoms (Kat Miller in CC) front and centre, in fact she didn’t even feature last month (I though hell had frozen over!), so we’ll put that right.

Panic over, emergency service cross-over show 9-1-1 is due to return on the Fox network on 23rd September 2019.  According to IMDb, Tracie is slated to be in the season 3 première.  Whether that is true or not we’ll no doubt find out closer to the time when official press releases are published.  Based on the promo video (watch it HERE) the panic is just starting and Tracie will need her armbands and rubber ring.  Get out of the water!  It’s amazing to think that just a few years ago a production like that first episode, with all the computer graphics etc. required, would have the preserve of a high-budget movie but can now be done on a television series.

We ended our June CCCC-up Tracie news talking about a rom-com movie called Straight Up.  The film had just premièred at the LGBTQ+ focused Frameline Festival and was heading to the Outfest event in July.  As said at the time, no further distribution had been arranged.  Early this month the new broke that Strand Releasing has acquired the rights to screen the film in US cinemas.  A somewhat vague ‘spring of next year’ is the currently expected time of a theatrical release for Straight Up.

John Finn (John Stillman in CC) has been featured an unusually large amount in recent CCCC-ups as we head rapidly towards the mid-September release of the new Brad Pitt space epic Ad Astra.  The film had its premiere at the Venice Film Festival two days ago (29th August 2019).  There are a number of reviews of it out there already.  The main thrust of the appraisals I’ve skimmed through are that, for all its huge interstellar dramatics, this is really a small film about a man and his relationship with his father.  Talking of hugeness, the IMAX trailer for Ad Astra has been released and you can experience that immersive grandeur HERE on your non-IMAX mobilephone or laptop via YouTube!  Despite including additional footage compared to the previous trailers (see older CCCC-ups) John does not feature this time.

Happy 6th Birthday Boys

Happy Birthday to Jameson & Rocco

6 years old?  Seriously?  It really doesn’t feel like 6 years ago that the above happened to Kathryn and Johnny.

Best wishes to you both from everyone at KM UK.

Reverie S01E10 – Point Of Origin Full HD Screencaps

Reverie_S01E10_1080p_076We reach the end of our own little season 2 of Reverie, as we looked back at last year’s only run for the show.  We did so in style, though, with loads of great new full HD screencaps and some embiggened promo photos.  Some of those images were more than double the size of the earlier versions.

Along with our new high quality, 1080p screencaps from this finale episode, we have another set of absolutely huge promo photos.  We are seeing out KM UK’s Summer Of HD for 2019 with a bang!

‘Point Of Origin’ was primarily about Oliver, the ex of Alexis (played by Jessica Lu), trying to bring down Onira-Tech and the VR tech.  Monica (Kathryn) turned all TV FBI agent, putting on the body armour and wielding a torch with intent.  It looked like the Cold Case sequel we were half expecting.

We were left with a fundamentally happy ending but there was a twist.  There’s always a twist in case of a second season being commissioned.  Paul (Sendhil Ramamurthy) told Mara (Sarah Shahi) that the VR system showed her, Mara, as still in Reverie.  Was Mara still in there?  If so, then the reality we were watching was brought into question.  Could some remnant of Mara’s avatar still be running in the system as an A.I.?  Maybe, but that is hardly a thing to worry about, just turn it off.  My feeling was that the unconscious Oliver had either been put in the Reverie as a punishment (I’m looking at your Monica!), or he put himself in it during the fire and got his wires crossed with Mara’s reverie and was now stuck in there.  That’s my best guess.

All five of the promo photos we have for this episode have been supersized.  As before I have added them as extra images (6 – 10), rather then replacing the existing ones (1 – 5), to give you the choice.  Keep clicking through an image to get to the full-sized version.  And, a year on from the original air date we have nearly 100 new full HD (1080p) screencaps from the season finale of Reverie are now in the KM UK the Gallery.

At least we got to enjoy a second season (another summer) of Reverie.
